I woke up this morning and looked at my hands. That's when it hit me like a nine-pound hammer: Today it is only ten days left until I leave for Japan! After settling down from this overwhelming realisation, I got up and had breakfast.
Once again, I found myself pondering the mystery of time. Last year, after returning home, the day I would once again go to Japan felt so very distant. It felt almost as if it would never come. And now it is only ten days away!
Time sure moves a lot quicker than you might think.
That's not to say everything has felt fast. Looking back on the year 2011 so far, a heck of a lot has happened, really. Thinking like that kinda puts my mind at ease. It ensures me that my life, and my time, are real.
So, with only ten days left before departure, I think I'm going to start counting down. 10.
(Okay, I just couldn't resist. Sorry :P)
Until next time, everyone, have a good day!
