Minor Breakdown

Hi everyone! Did I ever tell you about the time I crashed my bike, broke my arm and then went to a job interview? No? Then gather round!

Last Friday, I was on my way home from school on my bicycle. It was raining, and I was in a hurry to get home and prepare for my interview later that day. On the way up the hill to the dorm, though, my bike decides it's had enough, and the chain comes loose with a clattering noise, which is swiftly drowned out by my cry of surprise. I tumbled forward and hit the ground pretty hard. I quickly dragged myself up from the dirt and walked home, stopping every few steps to let my fading vision clear up. I felt a bit like I imagine Kratos did in that one part of God of War 2 where he's all wounded and what have you.

So anyway, like a fallen warrior I dragged myself home, washed off my dirtied face, and then got on the bus and went to Nagoya for my interview. My arm hurt pretty bad, but I didn't think it was broken. The next day, when my girlfriend gave me a ride to the hospital, I learned that it was.

And that's what happened. I now have my arm in a sling, and can't really use it for much. It is quite a bother. I'm glad it was my left arm, though. I am right-handed, so I can still write and such. Typing is a bit of a pain, though. Hopefully, it won't take too long for it to heal.

Until then, I probably won't be posting much on the blog.

Have a good day, everyone, and stay safe!


  1. Whoa, and I thought I'd had all the bad luck in the past with interviews... that's intense. Hope it heals up soon.

  2. That's shit, hope everything will be better soon!

  3. Yeah, I was wondering how you managed to type that much with a broken arm.

    Get well soon regardless.

  4. Neat blog following :) and man that sounds like a bad crash!

  5. Too bad the people at the interview didn't know. They would think you are dedicated to go in there even when you just broke your arm.

  6. hey, at least you have a bad ass story to tell now.
