But this last month has put that hectic period in 2007 to shame. In a little less than a month I’ve gone from “no concrete moving plans” to actually arriving in Japan with my three giant bags and a very grumpy daughter. I sold my cars, my furniture, and tens of pounds of books. We got rid of a huge amount of things and yet still needed around one hundred boxes to pack up our three bedroom house and ship it over to Japan. On Monday I registered as an official foreigner with my local city office, today I opened a new bank account, and tomorrow I will (hopefully) sign off on an apartment. Next Monday I am supposed to show up at work in Shibuya. By the end of the month I hope to have a place to live, power, internet, and a phone. It’s been an insane month!
So anyway, this is my roundabout way of saying that I’ve neglected the blog a bit lately, especially since so many horror games are released around this time every year. My game systems won’t be here for another month, but I have my DS and games like Nanashi No Ge-mu and Mitewa Ikenai are quietly calling from their spot on the local store shelves. I hope to be back in proper posting form by the end of the month–thanks for sticking around.
