The Final Date

Well after a long fight to get a big city in Japan, trying first for Nagoya and then for Hiroshima, I've finally landed a position in a city called Okayama. I can't find too much information about the city, but I was surprised to find that even though it's not considered a very big city it still has around 650,000 people. It has a castle and one of Japan's three famous gardens, but I'm pretty pumped for the Naked Man festival held there in February. People run around in traditional underwear and then at midnight some priests throw two rods into the audience. Sounds pretty tight to me, those rods are mine. The more I think about it, even though I would still love to live in a huge city, it might be good to live in a little less crazy place at first. I don't know the language and I think that getting used to my surroundings and getting around on my own will be a little easier in a less hectic place. Japan is so small, and Okayama is on a main train line, that I can easily make a day trip almost anywhere so I think things ended up working pretty well. I just went to a figure drawing thing called Dr. Sketchy's in Minneapolis recently so I'll post up the goofy drawings of roller derby girls I did there plus a few other things sometime soon. Oh, and my final departure date is October 10th, it's coming up real fast.

Yes, email. Think about the possibilities.

while thinking, also take time to consider for a moment your life and the many ways it equates to failure.
