GOOD MORNING TOKYO!! Yesterday it was raining and today it's sunny~  
I feel absolutely indescribably amazingly wonderfully great! I woke up and just felt that way, which is not really an uncommon thing for me (I am veryveryvery much a morning person). But it is surprising a little bit after jumpstarting my heart last night. I was making rice and I had my curtains open because I just hadn't gotten to shutting them yet. The window was all foggy and it was dark, so I couldn't really see anything. And then, suddenly, this white shape starts moving near the top of the door on the outside. I sometimes worry about someone climbing the 4 stories to get to me, so I stared at it in shock, trying to make sure if it was a hnd before deciding what to do. It... wasn't a hand. It moved and was suddenly a little farther down, and I realized....... it was a GIANT rat! A giant CUTE wild white rat!! It was HUGE! I ran to the door (to do what I don't know-- look at it?) and it ran away. I wonder where it went.

Ami-chan recommended this site and I recommend it to you. It's AMAZING! So calming, because I feel like I'm on the seaside, exactly where I want my future house to be. <3 I was thinking about it and realized that maybe one of the reasons that I sleep really well is that I nearly always go to bed after reading a book. Since I was a little kid, I've always read before bedtime. I always have vivid, lifelike dreams, and I sleep generally 6-ish hours a night and usually wake up in the morning ready to go and tackle whatever. ^___^ Anyways, last night I was reading a really old book about dinosaurs and I started thinking..... Something that I regret in life is not taking a path that would lead me to becoming an archaeologist. From when I was little, it was always art and archaeology/paleontology that really grabbed my love. I would LOVE to go on a dig and discover new dinosaurs. I think the reason that I decided to go with art is because in high school there were art classes, but no such thing as paleontology or natural history classes, so it was easy to keep my interests current on one subject. I wonder if it's not too late to try and be both. Why limit myself, after all? But I wonder how I would be able to study it in Japan... I will look into it!

Wednesday night, I met up with Greg and his friends, all of whom I haven't seen for the longest time!!! It was so great, and exactly what I needed after being so stressed out recently (new job and all). Uwaaa, I'm going to miss that guy even more. Quit leaving Japan, yo!! :O ^_^ Anyways, the next day, I started my new job in the afternoon, and I have to say.... it was EASY. It was a little weird because it goes very very fast, but I'm sure that I'll get used to the pace and be able to work into a kind of flow. ^^ I love my new coworkers. <3 And it couldn't come as a better time, because I am brokebrokebroke. No idea how I'm going to pay my electricity bill AND food this month with only $180. But I'm doing what I can. (Eating at home a lot)

I've got to take a shower and get outta here, since I'm meeting my friends to have a picnic on Mt. Takao!! Ahhhh it's nice and sunny and warmish, so it's the perfect day for it! ^o^ And picnic=free so I'm happy happy! ♥♥♥

It's really hard, isn't it? Thinking that to pursue one goal you have to give up the other. I wonder what my life would have been like if I had pursued the other career... I bet I'd be making a lot more money, lol. But I might not be as fulfilled. I love my life. Gonna try and pack everything into it that I can!!
