Longing for spring..

Only four years ago. I was a student in a local university in my province. I had a crappy digital camera, didn’t know anything about shooting photo’s, and coming to Japan had never even occurred to me. Not to mention the fact that I was geeky, living at home, and never went abroad without my parents.

Fast forward to now. I am 23. I have been living in Japan for 2 years. I have grown enormously, as a person and as an engineer. I enjoy traveling by myself, doing crazy trips, taking pictures with a DSLR, and enjoying spending time with international friends. My workplace is great. I work at the 22nd floor of a huge skyscraper without any other tall buildings around. The view is spectacular at clear days. I can see Mount Fuji every day from my room on the 5th floor and my working place at the 22nd floor. How many people can say that they’ve even seen mount Fuji once? I am lucky.

All I have now is gratitude. That sudden instant, where I realize: “hey, what the f*ck, I’m in Japan! What the bleep am I doing here!?!”. It puts things back into perspective, and that is something I have been missing for a long time.

From my blog, two years ago.
