A little over a month ago, I was an English teacher in Japan. Now, I'm just another American trying to build a life for myself in a bad economy.
I have a summer job secured and an interview for an even better job on Tuesday. I bought my first Good Car. Zack and I are looking into getting an apartment. Forms are signed. Friends are visited. Life happens.
Even as I go through the motions of starting over, I can't help but think of the life that I left behind.
