Finding my sea legs

We've been back in Britain for a week, but it feels like we were never in the States. After having been back, I will probably make some effort for us to go back to the States after I graduate, even though the thought of going through the process of immigration for Yoko will likely keep us from actually doing it. In the UK, it might be expensive, but we are all in the same boat. If we go back to Japan, that also would be relatively easy. The States? This will require going back to Japan to do some amount of paperwork and waiting. I'll be honest, I'm just not that into it.

I should be less obsessed with where we are going to land when I graduate, as it is so far off. Naomi was in the bathtub on Tuesday night and I was sitting on the toilet next to the tub drinking coffee and thumbing through Plato's 'Poetics' and I thought to myself, I don't know what else I want, really — what's wrong with me.

I had a good meeting with my head advisor yesterday, a meeting that essentially led to me having an epiphany about my project and giving me some pretty clear metaphorical steps to finishing my work.

Now, to clean up my transcripts.
