A Humid State of Bland

Have you ever had a string of days where you didn't feel great but you didn't feel bad but you felt crappy enough to not want to do anything? That is kind of where I have been for three days now. My stomach has been mad at me for some reason for a couple of days and yesterday, I had a headache most of the day. I didn't feel horrible but I felt bad enough to just want to be lazy and when I am lazy I start to get in a bad mood because nothing is getting done. Its odd, I used to be able to do nothing for whole days and be totally cool with it, now I can't.

Anyways, not much is going on. I have watched a lot of Law and Order: SVU and played a bit on my DS. Today, I feel pretty good and I go to class in a little while. I am looking forward to it so that is good. This week is going to be a pretty uneventful one and next week doesn't look much better. Karie and Reid are supposed to come visit in the next week or two and that will be nice. Karie got a pink DS Lite and now they want all of the games to go with it, I can hook them up.

I thought I should post something seeing that I haven't in a few days. I hate posting for the sole sake of posting. I feel like its a waste to read these kind of posts. But I have time to kill and I just wanted to let everyone know I am still alive so there you have it.

The first step.

Hey Mogwai. Where your week seems uneventful mine has begun with the first step. I sent off my application to Peppy Kids, finally, after reading more of your journal and pondering the answers to the questions I asked. This afternoon Robin (did you have your interview with her?) replied and offered me an interview in Toronto at the end of September.

So, now comes a month of worrying ('tis my nature) and, well, knock wood, maybe a shot at joining you out there in Japan.

This is the first step. A step away from my soul sucking retail job? A step towards a new experience? A step towards paying off debts? Helping kids? And, oh yes, all the Okonomiyaki I can eat!
Who knows where the road goes...who knows...

If it does lead out to Japan, though, I do believe I owe you a Sake for the help and inspiration.


I never did ask you but how old are you? I'm 29.

Ahh Robin, I interviewed with her in Vancouver and unless something has changed, she is smoking hot. Think Canadian valley girl but much cuter and less annoying. :)

I am 26 and I will take you up on that Sake when you get over here. If you got the interview, I would put money down that you have a new job.

As for the Okonomiyaki, I have a love hate relationship with it. Its either really good or it pretty much sucks. I think I would like it more if it didn't have mayo on it. If you like mayo, you will like pretty much everything here because they can figure out a way to put mayo on 70% of the stuff they eat. Me, I am not a fan. Now katsu-don, thats a meal. :)

Anywho, good luck and keep me informed!

Good looking, huh? Well, that should distract from my nervousness. They just sent me a Work Visa Application package. Did you get a similar one. Did they require you to take a police check? I suppose, regarding the type of employment, I can understand such a request. I've never had one before, though. Does asking for one of these make you look bad in the eys of the police?
How long did it take for your application to be processed? Did they send you a Leter of Intent pre-typed. If so, did you use their exact letter or change it up to be more personalized?

Everybody has blah days. Don't let it get to you. The best thing to do is get up, get out, and just do something. Hong Kong was fabulous! The Lam family had a great time. take care
