How I Decided to Go to Japan and Put the Rest of My Life On Hold

How I Decided to Go to Japan and Put the Rest of My Life On Hold

I’ve decided to go to Japan very soon. It is a recent decision, but one I am extremely excited for.

The Crossroads

I have a dilemma. I am at that crossroad in my life I after college. The one where you have your degree and have no idea what to do next. I graduated last May; my plans have changed so many times since. I have lost count. Some for personal reasons and others because I still have no idea what I want to do. Well, actually- I do know what I want to do. I want to go to graduate school and get my Master’s in History/Anthropology. I want to do that, but I’m still paying for the first time! It’s still my plan. I am just going to wait a little bit longer than I thought.

My Current Situation

Moving home after graduation has been pretty boring. I love bits of it.  I just forgot what it’s like to have to drive 45 minutes north or south, just to get to a grocery store. I forgot what it’s like not having regular access to the internet. I also forgot what it is like doing something more than just serving tables at the local bistro.

Sounds Like Fun

So, I have decided that I need to go to Japan ASAP. I have my best friend from high school currently living in Tokyo, teaching English for Aeon; while my two best friends from college are teaching in Ehime. I can’t ask for a better reason to go. I talked to my friends in Ehime and can stay for as long as I want. I am definitely taking them up on that offer. Currently, I am thinking at least six weeks this spring or early summer.

Extra Income Opportunities

I’ve recently been researching how to get into freelance writing, and I have come up with some positive results. I’ve already started writing for Textbroker and BloggMutt. It’s definitely not enough to make a living, but it is a little extra that will help while in Japan. Ultimately, all of this practice writing will help me for when I come back and decide on a career or graduate school.

In Conclusion/ In Japan

This is how I decided that I am going to Japan. I have too many reasons to go, and I could not have started this blog at a better time. I am excited to share my process of planning this trip from the very infancy. Most of all- I AM REALLY EXCITED TO SEE MY FRIENDS!
