Good morning from the States!

Good morning, everyone!  I'm back in the states for a week and a half.
So yeah, I haven't been updating my lj in a while because I was so busy before I left.
But as usual, I always update my FB right away.^^

The flight went by pretty quickly.  I think I'm just so used to making these 10+ hour flights now that it just doesn't feel long anymore.
I'm hoping to minimalize my jet lag this time but forcing myself to stay up no matter what. 
And unlike in January, I'm gonna try and surround myself with Japanese as much as possible.  At least, when I'm on the computer.
Of course, I know it's impossible to immerse myself seeing as I DO have to interact with the 'rents. :p  But when I came last winter, I avoided Japanese as much as possible and that was probably the worse thing I could do for myself since when I return to Japan I felt like my Japanese got worse from being away for a month.  So I'm gonna try to minimize that from happening this time around.

There's so much to do when I get back to Tokyo.   But I'm glad I can still try for the NeoRomance event in September when I get back.^o^

Hope I'll be able to save a lot on expenses since I get paid Friday and won't be in town to withdraw and spend any of it until the 10th. :p

Anyhow, I have no idea what the plans are for my stay right now.  So I'm just enjoying living in a house and being able to watch reality tv whenever I feel like it.XD

Welcome back to the swamp that is Maryland. I know you're used to humidity in Japan, and I'm wondering how you think Maryland humidity compares?

Thanks, mirax! I think Maryland gets heck a hot in the summer and pretty much similar to Tokyo weather...but the humidity is definitely much worse in Tokyo. If I'm rushing anywhere in Tokyo, I can get sweaty within 4-5 mins but in Maryland I can run to catch the train or whatever and still feel ok. At least in MD it cools down when it rains but in Tokyo it can be raining and still feel really hot and humid. I'm very grateful that we usually have A/C in every room in the US. I still don't understand why that hasn't caught on in Japan with all it's advanced technology and all.

If you need anything from the States let me know, I'll try to pick it up for you. ^o^
That sucks you can't make a trip back. Hope you can still enjoy a bit of the summer vacation, tho. You at least have obon off, right?
