Silence is Golden
We're smack dab in the middle of winter here in Sapporo. Every day, a little more snow falls and adds to the snow mountains that are slowly forming outside our apartment. Earlier this month, we escaped the snow to go to Tokyo and the surrounding areas, and it was a nice break.
I haven't written about that trip or anything else on this blog, because I'm at an odds about whether I want to continue writing or not. When I first started this blog, it was to record my experiences working in Japanese schools and adjusting to Japanese life. But now that we've been here for almost four years, all of those things seems mundane - too mundane to write about. I guess I'm just trying to figure out why I'm writing this blog and what does it contribute. I'm not a particularly talented writer, all my photos are from my iphone, I'm not a foodie, and although I love fashion, I'm not really comfortable posting daily pics of my clothing choices. Those are the major reasons for blogs, right? Haha!
Nathan and I have decided to stay in Japan for my fifth and final year with the Jet Programme. Even though that's a year and a half away, I've got a lot to think about. There's some things I want to do and improve about myself before I go back to America, one of those being figuring out what in the world I want to do with myself in terms of a job.
So I think I'm going to take a little break from this blog for now. Maybe I'll come back to it sooner rather than later, but for now I'd like to focus on other things, one of those being writing songs! I'll still be posting lots of stuff on my facebook, though!
I hope some people have enjoyed reading about my life and experiences. But most of all, I hope it's inspired people to go out and have some experiences of their own.
