Past Due Update

Filed under: General — espeed @ 9:16 am — Tags:

So, I foreshadowed future posts with my last post but nothing materialized out of that. I apologize.

My life is pretty boring which in my opinion makes my posts pretty boring. Producing boring content is not its own reward; it doesn’t matter how zen you think you are. On the other hand, it’s annoying when people are always asking me how I’m doing so I should probably try to post brief updates here from time to time. This is one of those times.

Instead of a small book of boring everyday minutiae, I’ll instead focus on the areas of my life which matter most to me.

After School

Filed under: General — espeed @ 6:21 pm — Tags:

Contrary to what the title may make you think, this post isn’t about cheesy G rated movies on ABC which you might have watched during a better more simple time.  It’s about my plans post school.  That golden time when I get to join the work force and become a productive member of society.

In this case, not this society, but Japan’s.  That’s right, I’ve decided to go to back to Square Enix to work full time after school.

This was a tricky decision which took a lot of soul searching to arrive out.  In the end, SE has a vision and a mission which is simply more exciting than the other places I looked at.   

It will take a bit for me to get my visa after a graduate so I’m still up in the air about what I’ll do for the summer.  I’ve applied to MITES but besides that it’s up in the air.

If I don’t get to do that, I’ll just chill in Kansas doing nothing, or maybe fun projects or possibly anything at all.

First, I have to graduate. 😛

Obon Week

Filed under: Uncategorized — espeed @ 9:00 am — Tags:

It’s been awhile since I posted which is unfortunate, but generally my day has consisted of: getting up, going to work, working, going out, sleeping, repeat.  This leaves little time for awesome blog posts.  Also, since I’m not out exploring like last year, my day is more routine and less hot touristy action.  On a positive note, I did update my last blog post with pictures, so you can go check that out if you want.

This week, however, I’m on vacation because it’s Obon week.  It’s the week that the Japanese return to their homes in the countryside and light laterns to guide the spirits of the dead back home.  It’s like Mexico’s Day of the Dead, but in August. 

While I’m technically on vacation (literally as well until today or possibly tomorrow at least), my project deadline is coming up and it’s hard for me not to think about work.  I’m pretty sure I can’t just go to work legitimately, but who’s to stop me form stopping by when I’m in the neighborhood, just to check on things.

In anycase, this is a vacation and I’ll probably update with interesting things sooner rather than later.
