my little sister is in japan teaching english.
in college, she went on a semester at sea, living on a cruise vessel for four months while it made a big lap around the globe, stopping in brazil, south africa, burma, india, japan, and a bunch of other places.
so yeah, she’s smarter than most of us.
she’s been blogging from japan, and i had to share this paragraph, because it makes me laugh every time i read it.
I feel like that experience made me cool. I mean, I was pretty cool before, but I was even cooler when I came back because I had been to the far lands. Now that I live in Asia, it makes me weird. Who moves away for a year (or more) and goes to Japan? It’s all good, though, because I like being weird. And cool.
