Yes. I’m a horrible blogger. Moving on.
Do you remember Fish Dinner?
That was when I first got him. March of 2008. Despite being a fish from a fishing game at a festival, and the 2 hour commute home in his little plastic bag, he survived.
He survived me! The horrible person who would leave him home alone in the summer heat with just a holiday food cube for company.
He was such a good fish. Loved people. Liked watching tv too.
When I left Japan he was adopted by ‘new!michele’ (the girl who took over my job and apartment), and I was happy he still had a home.
But when I went back to visit Tokyo in December and enquired after Fish, new!michele had some very sad news.
She had renamed him F-diddy (wish I was creative enough to think of a name like that…). And F-diddy obviously decided that gangsta was how he would live. And die.
New!michele went to Kyoto with a friend for a week. When she arrived back she took one look at the fish tank and thought ‘Where is that fish!’.
She searched high and low for 5 minutes (the apartment isn’t that big) before finding a fish tail and the orange outline of a fish on the floor. Just like a police crime scene. Apparently F-diddy lost his life in a drive-by robo-vaccuming.
RIP Fish Dinner. You were a good fish. You made me laugh, even at your end.

Am I? Well, back in Brisbane actually.
So, firstly I am so sorry that I have been a totally slack blogger and haven’t posted regularly for months. But a lot has been happening and I haven’t felt like doing any writing. And so. yeah. slack. Sorry m(-_-)m
Let’s see, since my last post I’ve been to Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, Wakayama and then back to Tokyo. And Brisbane. So yeah, my life in Japan has come to a conclusion. And I have very mixed feelings about that.
It’s been great to see my family and friends again, but moving back to Australia ahead of schedule means I haven’t really planned anything. at all. But I’m working on my resume, and I have big plans, we’ll just have to wait and see if it all turns out.
I’m sad to have left Japan, I managed to see a lot of my friends before leaving, but there were a few which i just couldn’t arrange to meet, which was even more saddening. But it’s good to be away from all the earthquake craziness, and actually, not having a job really doesn’t agree with me. At least in Australia I am working towards a goal.
I have so much to blog about, so do expect more posts shortly. Even a few more posts about hiking around Tokyo (although I still would not recommend going hiking in the Tokyo region just yet…). So keep an eye out, I hope to be back to posting at least once a week from now!
