Home, james

I am now back in Korea, to both my happiness and sorrow. I have a lot of things going on in my mind about my trip. It was good, bad, and everything in between. I am still digesting the things that I have seen and done, and working them into a new paradigm for myself.

Or something.

Ultimately, I think the trip changed me, in more ways than one, and in ways that will slowly make themselves known over the coming weeks. I look forward to seeing the changes in me, but I also worry that I will change into something else entirely...someone that isn't me. Or maybe I should stop reading Murakami before writing blogs. or something.

Regardless, I am back in Korea, and exhausted. Just about 24 hours in airports, thanks to delayed flights, and a curfew at the school, but it is nice to be in my dorm room again. It is nice and toasty, for once, and I have been productive as all hell today, despite the mind-numbing exhaustion. As promised, there is the first comic of my webcomic up for your viewing pleasure. Not that it's good to look at, I am a terrible artist, but, these things will get better. Or at least the story will, and that is where my actual talent rests.

I want to talk more about Japan, but I feel like I should gather my thoughts-and my photos-before delving into that.
There will be lots of updates soon though, since school is starting up again in a week, and all the new students are arriving in the next few days, so things will be busy again. I look forward to meeting new people and seeing what else I can experience in this country.

This trip to Japan has been amazing, totally amazing. I know that I haven't given a proper blog in a while-and sadly, this isn't one either. Not really.
This is just a quick update-I am still alive, I am still having a blast, and there is still 1 week left of this trip before I head back to Korea and to semi-real life.

I will be back working on my comic, and editing photos and starting the new semester at Soonchunhyang with all the new students and my new exchanges.

Sometimes I sit back and I can;t even believe that this is the life that I am living. If someone had told me even 5 years ago if I would be in Japan, living in Korea, married, happy, and excited...I would have called them a damned liar, and likely spit in their face. I have met amazing people, experienced new foods, cultures, people, many things that I can't even contemplate them all at once. So, I'l just roll with it.

Here's some photos! From Nara, which is close to Osaka, which is where I am now.

Japan, a photo page

I don't really feel like writing much, but, rest assured that my trip has been going great thus far. I am having a fantastic time, and I LOVE this city. Like, want to marry this city, kind of love. I still have 3 weeks left of my vacation, so, that may change, but I highly doubt that.

Went to Akihabara, Ueno and Asakusa already. Before my travels to Osaka and Kyoto, I will be going to Harajuko and Shibuya, and, if there is time, Shinjuku.

These photos are from Akihabara. Enjoy!
