Another week has passed and I am one week closer to making the biggest move of my life. Yesterday, I posted about it after weeks of having it saved in my drafts. I finally decided that it was time to face the reality that it is actually going to happen. I’m moving to Japan! *cue 4893204 different emotions*
Before I go into my new goals, last week my weekly goals included spending time with friends and family and going on a hike. I kind of failed with the hike… I barely left my house this week. The only times I went out was to eat or to pick Mark up. We were going to see Despicable Me, but it was sold out at the time, so hopefully we’ll be able to see it this week! Minion love!! I did spend a lot of time with my family! I had my graduation party last weekend and got to see family and friends that I haven’t seen in a long time. It was nice to be able to share this celebration with these great people.
For the rest of the week, my family and I ate together, had family game night with Mark twice, and I visited my Grandma, Uncle, and cousins. I always love family game night. We have a ton of fun. We usually play Trivial Pursuit and it’s so hard. Most of the question cards we have were made in the 80s, sooooo yeah. My parents have way more knowledge about those years and before. We did beat my parents one time! 2-1. Lets go! We can beat them again!
I’m going to keep with the same goals for this week, because it means a lot to me to spend time with friends and family (and my cat!) before I leave. I’m pretty sure we’ll have more family game nights and food (and maybe another Vegas trip?!). Just anything to be with my family and friends. Another aspect to this that I want to add is to remain off my phone during the times I’m spending with family and friends. I noticed that some times I’m on my phone even when there’s no reason to be. I’m so mad at myself for doing that. This week and beyond, I will put my phone aside and give 110% to these awesome people. I don’t want to feel like I always have to be connected via phone with people because it’s way too much of a distraction. We all need a break from our phones some times because it’s just a diversion from enjoying those precious moments.
Also, another one of my goals for the week is to start reviewing Japanese. I took Japanese for a year in college, but that was almost two years ago, so I’m a little rusty. Not that I knew a lot of Japanese to begin with! I’m pretty sure I talk like a toddler. I’m going to try to review as much as I can and go through the Japanese book JET sent us, hopefully I will be able to remember some things.
Oh, and I’m still determined to go on that hike!
Have a great week :)
