After getting home in the evening yesterday, I fell into a deep slumber and woke up at 5am today, ready to go to work. I surprisingly survived a full day at work, and I felt quite relaxed- perhaps floating in some kind of jet lagged haze.
My last few days in Canada were so nice, yet I felt sad the whole time. It's so hard to leave, but I know this time I'll be back soon. I'm not sure how I feel about everything just yet, I need a bit of time and distance, but I somehow things are clearer- about how I feel about my life in Japan, my hometown, where I am in my life, and Canada in general. I'm too tired to get into all that, but I hope I can put it into words soon.
For now, all I want is to have a more balanced life. To read more, to cook more, to spend less time on my laptop. To hopefully work a bit less (wishful thinking), and to take advantage of living in Tokyo. To try to relax on the crowded train, like I felt today. Not sure if I'm just relaxed or overly jet lagged, but life would be a lot better if I was that chilled every single day.
In other news, the Tokyo heat is suffocating, feel like an oven every time I step outside, but my hair is back to being soft and shiny. In Canada, it was so dry and dull, so I'm thankful for the Japanese humidity.
