This week was a bit of a downer, it rained so much and the strange weather made me so lethargic. I skipped the gym due to so many evening commitments and being generally tired. No exercise usually puts me in a bad mood, so I've been feeling a bit low, missing home and wishing I could get out just for a bit and speak French or something.
Anyways! April is here, it's a month big in changes in Japan: start of the new business cycle, start of the school year for students, and it's also the time of the year when hordes of apprentice salarymen roam the streets of Tokyo in their boxy suits and have one drink too many and pass out outside the station. It's a pretty interesting month, but can be really tough mentally on lots of people.
Nothing new for me this April; 2014 has been so peaceful, stable and quiet, a nice change from last year's adventures changing jobs and apartments and praying for a visa. I actually love how still everything is, it's the first time in a very, very long time. Maybe the first time ever in Japan, actually.
