This is an update I wrote to the candy newsletter back in August 2012 when I was feeling down in the dumps but still needed to get the newsletter out. Not my proudest post.
I can't believe summer is almost over. I feel great need to spend as much time as possible on the beach while the sea is still warm.
A few people have been asking me why I didn't send out the previous candy email for August 14th? To be perfectly honest, I guess the small Japanese countryside town isolation finally got to me. Every day I thought yes, I should definitely be sending out that email ASAP. But every time I thought about what to write in the "Life in Japan" update, I just couldn't write anything that didn't sound like a downer. Living in Japan was my dream for a long time, and it's still my favorite place to be, but sometimes you just can't reconcile your awesome life with how you happen to be feeling inside.
But here's me with a turtle.
