sad and yet happy


Let me re-iterate: having a LD relationship is tough. Much respect to everyone I know who has had one / doing one right now. Yeah, Christmas here in Japan is a seriously huge commercial holiday that's celebrated mostly by only couples. Tons of BF/GF pairs walking around Kobe now and it makes feel a bit lonely... must be the evil in the heart of men to despise the blissful happiness of others.


Japan is really starting to feel like home and a big part of that is my co-workers... I love 'em like family. A great and varied group of Americans, Canadians, Aussies, Brits, Scots, and Japanese... all one happy family.

Some pics from last Sunday's Christmas party at a Japanese restaurant/bar:

Waiting to eat... (clockwise from far left) Davida, Birgitta, Hayley, Selman, Adam

Same crew + Michelle, Tom, Ollie, Mika, and yours truly

My secret santa present. sugoi!

The Japanese staff (Ai, Miyo, Mako) from the school finally join us... they often work an hour extra than us teachers closing up shop and stuff.

I dunno what's going on here... pot trouble?

Yay, warm sake! Hits the spot after a meal. (note: blue glassware)


That's it from here in Japan. Merry Christmas, world!


"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given... good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today, in the town of David, a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord... The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us... God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."

Isaiah 9:6 Luke 2:10-11 John 1:14 John 3:16
