A much overdue conclusion

So, it’s been a long time since I updated this blog – I left Japan on July 29th, and now I’m back in the U.S.! I’ve moved down to California and started a Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley. All is well and fine. If you want to read about my new adventures in Berkeley, I am planning to set up a new blog soon. I’ll post the link here as soon as it’s available.

I had a few more adventures before I left though – including moving farewells at my schools and a final trip to Tokyo with Nuria and Star. Here are a few more pictures to keep things visual:

Anyway, in conclusion, I’d like to thank all of you for reading my blog. It was a crazy year in Japan, filled with a lot of fun and a lot of personal growth. I look forward to more adventures in the future!
