It's a new year

well, it's the new fiscal year anyways...

and yes, I'm changing supervisor...for the 3rd time. I don't know why..but I don't think it's me. This has got to be a record, no?

So it's been awhile, so thought I would do a little update. (can't believe that the last time I wrote on this blog was like october last year... geesh, sandy!)

Okay, so I finally decided to leave Kanoya, and the job as a CIR. I'll be finishing my contract on July 25th. Hopefully I'll be able to get a job soon, but I've been procrastinating in that area. Went to the returning JET conference in March, but actually came back more confused than before. With all these possibilities, I guess there are lots to choose from... that is if I know what to choose!!

I didn't do anything over the new year holidays... I stayed in Kanoya, and basically just pigged out at home. However, got invited to many people to their houses for food. God I ate so much... :p I spent the new year's eve with the Hirakawa family in Wako Daycare. They are sooooo nice. I couldn't believe it. The dad even gave me a Otoshidama.. hee hee

Just last week, I got back from a week long trip in Ishigaki. I went to Ishigaki Island, Iriomote Island, Kohama Island (where the "Chura-san" drama hails from), and Taketomi Island. I gotta say, my favourite is Taketomi Island. I just love the small island feeling and met this wonderful Obaa there. She dragged 2 HUGE nets of mozuku all the way from the ocean to the beach. I tried to lift one and embarrassingily couldn't... ahaha

I'm hoping that I'll be able to get out of here during GW time... perhaps to Saga... we'll see..
