I can’t even contain my level of excitement right now… because… drumroll please…
私は日本に行くよ！ (Need a little help on that one?)
Granted, it’s not until 2015. Probably sometime in September. So… really far away.
But seriously. I am THAT excited. I’ve been wanting to go to Japan ever since high school when I was in a Japanese class and a bunch of my classmates went for 2 weeks in the summer. I was so jealous I couldn’t go! Then, my college had a sister school in Japan called Doshisha Women’s College that offered exchange programs. I really, REALLY wanted to do a semester at Doshisha, but ended up doing the Disney College Program instead for a semester (which pretty much landed me where I am now, so I guess I can’t be too mad about the decision).
Fast-forward many many years, I’m now in my thirties, and I still haven’t been to Japan. So I was having lunch with my friend this past weekend, and the conversation led to a discussion of how we both really wanted to go, and I realized I’ll be celebrating somewhat of a birthday milestone in 2015. It was pretty much decided over lunch that we’re going to make this happen next year. Plus I figured, pretty sweet to make it happen as part a big huge birthday gift to myself!
I am so flippin’ psyched. WOOOOOOO!!!!!
More to come as plans are solidified….stay tuned!
