So, finally, everything has fallen into place.
Okay, not really but I felt like saying something positive!
I'm not feeling so stressed.
My head is still about to explode, but I'm not having a meltdown anymore.
On the house front: well, I have always been a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. Not in a god like way, because I don't 'do' religion, but in a 'what goes up, must come down' kind of way. Things just are and things happen and there is sense in most of it, although sometimes it takes a lot of hunting to find the sense in things.
But I'm going off on a tangent, so let's loop back around.
On the house front: This house is too hot in summer, too cold in winter and I really don't like the people who live here.
However, doing nothing is so much easier than doing something.
Knowing the house will cease to exist, is a good thing. It means I have NO choice but to find somewhere else to go to.
I'll miss the location. I'll miss having my own kitchen. But such is life. I've got my eye on a couple of companies gaijin houses (guest houses) and when a suitable room comes up, I'll grab it.
On the diploma front, I'm concentrating on the portfolio work at the moment and haven't done any unportfolio study in a while. I can't cope with the house stuff and the full whack of the diploma right now, so I'm being realistic and postponing the written exam until next year.
I'm studying Spanish like a mad woman these days because I don't have enough else to do!
I keep looking at my room and groaning at the thought of how much stuff is in it to sort out!
And I really do need to find time to figure out India in case it means I can any cheapo advanced tickets, etc.
Oh and I have to help organise a work xmas party.
And find time to sort out my India visa.
And sort out my sewing pile.
And continue with weekly dental trips. Yay!
And hope I don't catch 'new' flu. In Japan, they apparantly won't call it 'swine flu' because that would upset the pig farmers and panic the whole population into giving up pork. Or something.
