Chuo Special Rapid for Takao

Reading those words makes me want to be back in Japan more and more. I have another 2 years before I could even consider going back. But it was always an adventure going on the trains in Japan. It would be a good day if you caught the special rapid, it meant that you could get across the city in 45 minutes rather than 1 1/2 hours. I just thought it would be cool to have the title of today's blog be something that reminds me of my life in Japan.

I only had today as my last day of classes and now I am preparing myself for my final exams next week, most of which are going to be really, really easy...

I am just waiting for this week (coming up) to be finished, and I will be able to have more time to do things and write more...

Until then,

Changing a mindset

Today is Monday, I have exactly 11 days until I go back home. I am just trying to take a break from all of the craziness around school as I am just at Sunergos coffee in Louisville, a local (very famous) coffeeshop that will brew it's own coffee, and even roast the beans themselves. So I'm planning to bring some coffee back to Florida with me. Hoping that the family will like it. I had one quiz in Preaching today, and then next week I give my final sermon, and I am busy with final exams, and everything. Especially in the area of packing, I will be going home, and I have 2 suitcases to pack up in order to go, it will be hectic.

Remember Remember the Fifth of November

Today marks 2 weeks until my semester is over with and I am just rejoicing and counting down all of the days til this happens, because it's now 3 weeks until Thanksgiving, and I will be home for it this year. I wasn't home for Thanksgiving last year, thinking I would have a job and I would be working, but I didn't get hired and then I went home right after my birthday. So this will be great to be able to be back home and to stay home for a long time. I was home for only 3 weeks the last time I was there, and that was right before I was headed out to Japan. I am very happy to be going home, It will literally be almost 6 months that I have been away from home. I am due for a visit to the sunshine. I am prioritizing the beach, the absolute best sushi restaurant in Boca Raton, and visiting with people from my home church, so this will be a great vacation time for me.

I was driving down to pie pantry today, and i realized I keep having all this awesome music playing in my head when I think about certain places, such as driving in the city, makes me think of trumpet and jazz, and just a sound that calls out people trying to make it. I know it may not make sense, but it's just the way I think.

Tonight, being November 5th, I want to watch V for Vendetta, and do what the title of the blog says.
