Westward bound!

Well, west of me, actually. =)

You know how I was querying the hivemind about going to Tokyo? It turns out that I am going to Tokyo this spring.... just for a lot longer than I anticipated in that post.

I'll be in Tokyo from April through the beginning of July, studying Japanese at a language school and running around the city and the country. To say that I'm happy that I have the funds saved up and the time to do this is an understatement... I am freaking thrilled!

I'll post lots of pictures when I'm there, as I'm taking my camera with me and will have internet.

Of course, I'll miss Zoe and my husband, Chris. But they're both good with me going for three months, and Zoe is going to leave me video cat postcards through Skype. Which will most likely consist of her being held up to the web cam and struggling to get down.

And I think that's about it. =)

Questions? Comments? I'm obviously planning on getting the rest of the agency work wrapped up before I go.

This is wonderful. Just going there is an education itself, but studying there makes it even better.
