Sorry abou being out of touch for a while; work has been insane lately with twelve hour days and weekend work. Oh, and a bunch of travel. I barely have time to relax, let alone get things done. I don't know when sanity will return.
My Japanese is in a holding pattern. I still listen to Japanese podcasts and music, but my kanji practice has stagnated. With work and the upcoming holidays, I foresee myself falling a bit further behind before catching up.
Other than work and Japanese, my mind is in turmoil. Should one follow their heart even when it's crazy? I don't know. Sometimes the heart has bad ideas in the long run. On the other hand, sometimes you just have to have faith. As ironic as that last statement is coming from me, I can see both sides. I want to follow my heart, even though the con list is as long as the pro list. Good thing I have time before I have to act.
