So here I am, back in Idaho and wide awake. I like being wide awake, I just wish it wasn't at 3:41am. I got in around 3:45 yesterday afternoon and by the time 6:30 rolled around, I was dead to the world. For one reason or another, I was up at 2:30am and have been ever since.
Being an early riser hasn't been all bad though. I unpacked some of my stuff started to get my room looking somewhat livable. I also proceeded to do something I haven't done in a long time, get leftover pizza out of the fridge along with a pop and eat a very early breakfast.
Oh, fun story. When I woke up this morning, I didn't know where I was or why I was in a very fluffy and large bed. It took me several seconds to remember that I was in the United States and figure out why the ambient temperature of the room was very comfortable. Beds and central heating with good insulation are a welcome addition to my life.
I have to say, I am in a killer mood today. Yesterday, upon seeing Boise out of my airplane, I was smothered by a sense of impending doom and dread. A wave of depression washed over me and I wanted so badly to be back home in Japan. It wasn't that I wasn't happy to see my family again, it was just that Boise looked so small and I instantly felt like I was trapped in a box. Today, I feel much better so I am thinking that a lot of the bad vibes I was getting yesterday came from being very tired and hungry.
Tomorrow, I have my interview and I am getting excited/nervous about it. I am not worried so much about the interview itself, more of about what the job means to my immediate future. If I can snag this job, I can truly hit the ground running and that would take a lot of weight off of my shoulders right now. I think it would be a very interesting and rewarding job as well and definitely something I would like to try but right now, I am just concerned about the financial ramifications that are tied into this. Car loans, apartment/house shopping at some point, etc. Getting this job means that I can relax sooner than later. Not getting it means I get to seriously start job hunting.
One other thing that made my day very early on was an email I received from Ben, asking me to be the best man at his wedding later this year. I am so excited that he asked me and can't wait to help him out and support him. It will be a fun wedding I think, and it will be in California which means one thing, road trip.
Anywho, it's after 4am now so I think I will finish this up and see what else I can do in the wee hours of this new day in this new place.
