Aside from my proclamation last night, I don't have anything to write about. I mean literally.

I didn't do much today. My mom had her friends over and with our living room occupied, I basically was locked up in my room. Adding to this, there was a terrible reality of me waking up at 4 in the afternoon. To be honest, I desperately wanted a day off from everything, so I was quite satisfied with the short string of events that happened today. With an adequate productivity, I was able to accomplish some goals I had set for my seminar assignments.

The cherry blossom trees are blooming more rapidly than I thought. Although I was planning on "hanami"-ing on the 2nd of April, that may end up being a normal picnic out in the Ueno Park. Oh well.

here i am

I have returned, once again to this humble blog of mine, located in the one of the remotest sectors of cyberspace. The reason? Well...when I was thinking about the upcoming junior year of college, I figured out that my academic curriculum this year has no interaction with ENGLISH unlike last year, when I had an excellent teacher in the Tokushu class. From this fact, I found out that the degradation of my English skills was unavoidable if I continued to spend my life the way I used to this year. With recruiting period lying just beyond the horizon, I have chosen to voluntarily brush up my English skills once again to prepare myself for the harsh tests the foreign financial firms are going to imposed on me.

My last entry was made in December. A lot has happened since then. Christmas, New Year's, Final Exams, Birthday, Internship, Seminar Camp, Trip to name a few. Although I can use my time to recall these great experiences, I am not going to. At least for the time being. Instead, I will write as if I had continued to make daily posts on this blog. My circumstances may prohibit me from writing a journalistic blog, but...I will do my best. After all, English is one of the only talents I possess. So here I go!

Work after work after work. Ever since I woke up from that unforgettable, dreamlike trip in Nikko(despite the hay fever and the more "authentic" fever that followed afterwards), I have been working in that office in Minatomirai which I had commuted to for the past year. While I am cramped up in this office, typing in intermittent waves of faxes, the general society is enjoying spring vacation. In addition to sunbathing and inhalation of warm spring breezes that arrived a bit earlier, the cherry blossom trees that are gradually blooming nowadays is adding that one last spice that is necessary to complete the "recipe" for a typical, Japanese springtime.

Back in office, I was really pissed off today because of the lack of manpower necessary to complete the task that is assigned to our group in this "calling center" conglomerate I am employed in. I am not going to write anything specific, because that will only amplify the negative feeling I already have toward my job.

Anyway, even though I had been in my spring break since the 25th of January, I had never had huge blocks of leisure in it. Yes, it was a spring break from an academic point of view, but nevertheless, it was hectic as hell. My internship lasted for a month and the seminar camp overlapped with it. When I finally finished my internship, I was back to old part time job. This "spring break" was an unprecedented in many ways. Although I had earned a few grands through the elements that composed it, I am starting to miss that lazy, leisure filled life I had as a college student.

That life I am beginning to miss, and forget is going to return in a week...yippee!
