I had half of this post typed up in my iPhone but it disappeared. Let's see how it goes when I do it again...
As far as my life goes, 2012 was amazing. I took a huge leap - all the way across the Pacific Ocean, starting a new life in a new country full of new experiences. Surprisingly, I went through very little culture shock, probably because I like a lot of what current Japanese culture is about.
As I approach my one-year anniversary of touchdown, it's time for my goals for year two.
God, has it been a year? On January 10, I touched down in Tokyo. Most of that first week or so of training was a blur, but there are still a bunch of distinct memories. But that was a world away.
I guess that is a good reason why I don't have many goals. Every time I've set long-term goals, they've blown up in my face. I'm not upset about that, in many ways. But I've found that planning for the best case and being flexible when things differently has been beneficial.
I feel like I've got some weak goals and a weak resolution. But I can't think of anything better that I could be sure I'd be able to follow through on. Thoughts?
