1. I'm broke, friends! I'm broke! I must be the brokest foreigner in Japan. Everyone says it's so easy to make money here. Guess what, it's not! Not right now, anyway. Things are about to get pretty interesting.
2. I'm still sick! I'm DYING! And my company called me today to make sure I'm not traveling overseas for Golden Week. The schools are worried their ALTs are gonna bring back some pig flu and cough all over the children. I guess we'll all be wearing masks soon. Maybe I'll kidnap some friends and go tell stories in the mountains like The Decameron: Tokyo Drift.
3. It's almost summer! Last summer I had a black eye, did you know that?
It was so badass. This summer has a lot to live up to. Man, I was broke last summer, too.
