Far away with little to say

A little over a month has gone by. I finished one summer class and am about to pick up another. One month closer to the possibility of going to Japan. Besides that, I feel like I’m far away with little to say.

The anniversary for my Japan trip blew by me like it has in years past; maybe I’m just always busy in June, for some reason. But I realized it at the end, when, I had come home for the night Sunday, June 26th, standing in front of our house, when it hit me. It was exactly 4 years ago when I came home. Now it’s 4 years and 3 days. I’m far away with little to say.

And life goes on. Summer and school and friends and me. There just isn’t much Japan in northern Virginia to write about for a blog devoted to experience in Japan. I just keep studying every night, practicing Japanese, preparing, training, and waiting. Because someday (someday other than today), I’ll be anything but far away with little to say.


About Stephen

My name is Stephen Gabriel Falke, and I am passionate for all things Japanese. I have been accepted to teach for the JET Program starting 2015. In the past, during my time in college, I also had the chance to participate in a study abroad at Sophia University, Tokyo, Japan, for Japan's 2012 school year. On my blog I write about my love for Japan, my journey to get there and stay there, and my adventures studying and teaching there.
