Howdy Tay!

Studying Japanese has left me thinking about my future. Is it something I wanna invest in more seriously? Then why don’t I? Like quit work and go study again or something. I guess I kinda wanna do that but I don’t really see that leading anywhere. Would be cool to live abroad for a while. But don’t think I would want to do it my whole life, and then all the suddenly I have more debt to pay. In that case I prefer doing it like this as a side thing while I gain money from my regular work.


But I would like to leave my current work someday. Not sure what I would want to do otherwise, but working at a jail can be hard work. Both emotionally and physically, and I don’t really feel I have it in me to do it forever.

I wish I knew what I wanted to really do and really invest in it. Right now I feel like I am throwing stones randomly at things. One day I might be working intensely to learn unity, another day I write some large blog post about a video game, I have an education in animation, and I work at a jail. Oh right, and I used to draw comics. Like a lot. What if I just took one of those things and did my darndest to try become really good at it.


Perhaps I feel like I’m done with investing in something I wanna do. And just feel okay with doing anything that brings in the money. Like it’s not that bad to have money. I like to buy things I want and experience stuff on my free time. But I would like to do something enjoy while making a decent living at the same time.

I don’t know. Being adult with a limited lifespan is hard.

Anyway, here are some suggested topics for today:

  • Would you like to try live in another country for a while? In what way?
  • How are you feeling currently?
  • Or talk about anything.

(Also I saw Weathering with you last Sunday. It was good!)
