Eager

It’s August, just a month had passed the half-year, but it seems twelve months had gone by already. What’s left for the remaining 5 months? I don’t know, I can only wish for the better.

circulars

infinite paces
dyed strings pulled hesitantly
windows of chances

Last month, I accepted a job responsibility, way bigger than my current position. It was an offer I hesitated at first but if after reflecting and that I want a venue to further improve my professional career, it’s an opportunity. To this date, the pressure is continually increasing and this will never cease until April 2010, the project completion target date. In this regard, a monthly business trip to Korea is anticipated. If only I could find that umbrella owner during these trips, it will be doubly good.

I am also planning to take a much-needed vacation this October. First, I MUST since it’s my brother’s wedding and second, I will undergo a general check-up in order to find out the results of these frequent headaches. I underwent a medical examinations here already but I find it difficult to understand and the results and its difficult to express what I really feel. I am not fluent in Nihonggo and the doctors are not fluent in English. Go figure. During this vacation, I am looking forward also to witness our city’s Masskara Celebration, it’s a colorful event and a great photo opportunity.

Obviously, I won’t be granted a vacation anymore this December so I will be celebrating Christmas, my birthday, and New Year all by myself ---> AGAIN, for the nth time. Since staying in Thailand, I decided to have a birthday suit shot every year and this year I am planning to do it at Mt. Fuji for a change. It will be a chilling adventure, my 33rd birthday.

Whether all of this will happen or not, I will know the answers in five-month’s time. Happy thoughts until 2010.

  12. Some chances in our windows can come with a high price...do you think it may be possible the pain in your head may partly be caused by work stress?

    Please give some of the joys in life to your self and the two most important things a person can give to their self is Time and having someone to enjoy the best life has to offer.

    Peace to you and all your loved ones

  35. totomai,
    difficult indeed to have a thorough check-up when there is this language barrier... i think your headaches are just stress related because of the bigger responsibility which you now have...
    God bless!

  36. @Mark, i can only hope :-) indeed, so both of us (the doctor and me) would resort to sign language haha
