I have only cried once upon checking my e-mail inbox. This happened on the 6th of February 2013, the day I found out that I had got a new job.
Yes, the patent office I mentioned in my previous post decided to hire me as a translator. When I read that mail, I burst into joyful tears and danced around my apartment. At last, my worries were over. At last my life could begin anew.
From the day I found out I was going to be fired from Softbank until the day I received that mail, it had felt as if my life was on pause. As if I was not really living, but merely existing, trying to find a way to truly live again. And finally, that day had come.
So, I moved from Kyoto to Gifu, got myself settled into my new apartment, and then started on my new job. Life was good once again. And it still is. Since the beginning of March this year, I have been working as a translator at this patent office in Gifu, and I am really enjoying myself.
This concludes the brief sum-up of what's been going on in my life since my last post in May 2012. There are still quite a few interesting episodes to be told, and I think I'll reach into my vault of memories and retell some of them when I get in the mood.
Well, that's all for today. Until next time, have a good day!
