Long time, no see.

It has been a long time, hasn’t it. But, just to let you know what NOVA has been up to recently.

And there’s the usual nonsense as well.

Saw a Time Magazine special today, haven’t had a chance to read it all yet.

My biggest stress lately has been money and work. And friends. And food. And the heat.

I’ve only recently been able to get on top of my credit card debt, budgeting and all that. As most of you would probably know, I’m not very good with money. I have three credit cards. And they hurt.

Here is some more interesting reading. Maybe it’ll give you an idea of why most blokes stay in Japan. I’m here to study Japanese. Honest.

As for work. Well, I got my 3 year working visa. But NOVA isn’t too happy because I shouldn’t have gone and done it without asking for permission. But, I didn’t need to ask for permission. Anyway, it’s something to look out for in the future. I have my visa, and NOVA can’t really take that from me. So, we’ll see what happens.

As for friends. Well, there’s one friend that the last time I went to visit, we ended up arguing for 3 days. Don’t think I’ll be going back to see her for a while. As for the other friend that I had been arguing with. Well, we’ve made up now. Which is good.

With the food. Well, now I’m on top of my money problems, I can afford to eat again. I’ve discovered the joy of Japanese ?????? (Curry Rice.) ?1000 and rice, and I can eat for 5 days. Potato, chicken, onion, curry. Easy. And not too bad. Although, 5 days in a row isn’t too good either.

So, yeah. Back at Christmas for a quickie. I have a few friends in Australia, so I’m trying to organise for them to be in Sydney when I’m there. That’d be good.

And just to finish off, I found these comics, one called EFL Hell and another that is a cult classic here called Charisma Man.
