time moving slowly

We finally got our computer online, but there hasn't been much happening worth writing about lately anyway. It's very strange to just have every single day be a weekend, with nothing you have to do, and no clue even what the day or date is. It's really nice, it's the longest break from working I've had in my entire post-high-school life thus far. I'm not doing as much studying Japanese as I should be doing though. Mostly I've been reading a lot, watching the nieces and nephews jump on the trampoline, watching movies, talking with family. Trying to figure out what I can take out of my suitcases so they're not so heavy. Montana moves more slowly than the rest of the world. Also, you can get a pancake breakfast at a restaurant for $2.45. You can't beat that. We went to a zoo yesterday that featured wolves, a tiger, two previously injured bald eagles that couldn't fly, and two red pandas. And some ducks. And a wolverine that was hiding so we couldn't see it. It's strange to think that in two weeks I'll be taking off for Tokyo. It sort of feels like we'll be living in a camper in a driveway in Billings for the rest of our lives, just hanging out, eating other people's food and sitting around reading books. Wouldn't be so bad really...

Red Pandas... Interesting. Shouldn't talk about retiring before you've done your best work! Don't know why it took you guys so long to get on the internet though, all you need was a phone line - you PC folks! As for packing tips, think of it this way - you could probably buy most of the stuff you need in Japan anyway, so you should just leave the majority of them. Then again, clothes can be comforting in a different place...
