Osaka in December

Against the advice of my therapist, I decided to go back to Japan for part of my December holiday. Not that I have any bad feelings towards Japan, quite the opposite actually, but you know, you can never be too careful. It brought up a lot of nostalgia, and stirred up some weird emotions I thought I had already dealt with but hey, sometimes you have to roll with the punches and pretend everything is a-okay – and if you’re lucky, it ends up being just that. I went with a really good friend of mine, and to be honest, nothing too exciting happened. This wasn’t the immersive site-seeing type of trip like I had last year. It was more, let’s go shopping and wander through department stores until we forget how stressed work made us before this holiday, kind of trip. Anyway, I filmed (kind of), but as always, I was distracted by pretty things and didn’t film as much as I could have. I realized this kind of thing, though I’m not necessarily the best at it, is more so for me. I like having a visual diary of sorts. So, here it is if you are at all interested.

Oh, and happy new year.

Also, I was kidding about the therapist stuff, it’s been a weird few months, I don’t know. I don’t remember how to be light-heartedly funny anymore, everything just comes out in a strange emo sort of trail of words. I’ll be posting again soon.
