So...now I'm in that awkward timestamp where I feel it's too early to start putting things in suitcases (and some stuff I can't put in suitcases cause I, y'know, kind of need it over the next week) but I really want to get started on things - actually to be totally honest I really want to get started on the things I'll need to be doing once I arrive in Japan and those I really can't get to. -.- So I have to settle for making lists of crap and chewing my nails. I don't get how it can simultaneously feel like there is too much time till I get there and not enough wtf reality Also why is it impossible to find a map of campus >.> Like not where the buildings are but inside the buildings? nnnnnnnnng planning >.<

Also dad has a grand plan (since our phone contract is conveniently ending) to try and get me a phone here that I would be able to use in Japan and then continue to use once I got back - which would be awesome cause my phone is showing signs of dying, and would also not leave me with a random headset bouncing around upon my return...but it's less than a week till I leave. And he's leaving on a business trip like two days before I leave and knowing my family there just isn't going to be time. Plus, ideally, I'd like to get a phone with a proper keyboard hey [livejournal.com profile] faded_lace can I just steal your old one? cause I'll be emailing/etc so much in Japan, but sofar one of those isn't on the lists of phones he can get a good deal on. Though there is a pretty sweet touchscreen one but there's other complications with that one too Plus there's the issue of unlocking it so I can, y'know, use it in a foreign country. :/ It would be nice if we could have started figuring this sort of thing out at, like, the beginning of the month?

In slightly happier news, we are like 3 boards and a series of steps away from having a back deck, which will make the cats extremely happy once the workmen leave and means that there is no longer a foot and a half drop out the kitchen door. It does look damn strange, though, having stuff there though after like two years of the "moat".

Oh and my catbite is healed to the point I can wear just bandaids instead of gauze wraps :3 yay.
