Can I Just Say...

It's been a while since I last posted, but I'd just not had the heart to -the heart that is nearly breaking, since I have to leave my work in the end of the month. I've been telling everyone at school that I am leaving, but it's just making me feel worse.

My newly-wedded hubby is being transfered to Aichi, and I am going with. It entails a lot of goodbyes for my part, and I am not being very good at it so far. I only know that I deal best with anything in my super positive, watch-me-I'm-gonna-laugh-about-it way. I hope I can pull that off till the end.

Some don't care, and some don't even know me that much. But some have earnestly told me how sorry they are that I have to go. A young student actually shed tears for me today. It nearly killed me. The last 5 years of my life will probably look really short in my death bed. But they were my first 5 years of my life in Japan, and will always going to be one of the best parts of my life. I hope I will never forget that.

Until next time,



  1. Sak, I know how you feel.... It is hard to say goodbye. But I am sure many of your students will remember you after years and you have made some positive impact in their life.

  2. evy! had you been here, all this would have been so much easier to go through... that's what i keep thinking. but i'm OK! i am happy about the changes as much as i am sad about them. thank you for your verbal hugs, evy. mean a lot.
