Well, this is awkward.

February 21, 2012

I am obviously horrible at posting, as one can see from the fact that I’ve posted a total of two entries, the last one being some five months ago.

That’s pretty bad.

Part of it is that school ate up a lot of… energy. What it didn’t take up in time (university here requires seriously fewer hours of commitment than ones where I come from, as far as I know) it took up in… mental faculties? I guess this is just a fancy way of saying that I was too lazy/too busy doing other, not-school things in my spare time to post.

Also the fact that I really don’t think what I have to say is interesting contributed to my lack of enthusiasm in keeping this updated. While Being In Japan!!! may be Cool! and Interesting! and Exciting! and Exotic! to other people, if you think about it, this is just ordinary people’s ordinary lives. And while there’s always something exciting to be found in the mundane or whatever, I am not very good at finding it! That isn’t to say, of course, that I think my life here is boring; oh no no nonono, I am thoroughly enjoying my time here and with five months to go, am already dreading returning to my home country. It just feels like everything that I may or may not have to say has already been said by countless others, and why bother giving an account that people already know?

This isn’t exactly the way to think because who is even reading this anyway; why don’t you just do it and get some sense of accomplishment out of at least completing something, Lauren? …is what I thought recently, and since I’m on break right now and have pretty much nothing else to do, might as well use my time productively! If anything, maybe I’ll be able to look back on this in a year, half a year, thirty years, and think, ‘wow, what a loser, but look at all the fun times I had!

Anyway, hopefully I’ll start updating soon. I have stories to tell I guess!

to unfulfilled ambitions~
