a merkypie in japan

First sunrise of the year

So, it is officially 2012. The year of the dragon. This is it. This is where it comes down to the wire. Either way, I will be in Japan this year — how I get there is up to fate itself.

I went to the beach to catch the first sunrise of the year. It was a pleasant 52 degrees outside, with decently packed beach full of kids and couples celebrating the new year. It gave hope and optimism for the good that will happen this year. In less than 30 days I’ll find out if I have an interview with the JET Program, so it’s all good. In February, I have an interview with Interac; so I’m positive. I have this new sense of positivity right now.

So happy new year, everyone. May good luck and good fortune come to you as well!
