♥ Japan! ♥

After the last couple of weeks, going in and out with personal shit and ups and downs with the people in my life -- it feels really good to be able to write about something happy.

So, yeah, Jess and I bought a ticket to Japan over the weekend. I'm really, FINALLY going!

We're gonna stay here, in the Roppongi district. It's said to be a happenin' spot with happenin' night-life. Scary new lands! Exciting! I've been saving up for this trip two years now. It feels good to have put my money where my mouth is. I'll bring everyone back some souvenirs!

This also marks the first time in my thirty years of life that I will be leaving the country. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I just need to go.

Also, Jess and I said screw-it a few weeks ago and bought tickets and airfare to PAX in Seattle. We'll just be poor for a little while longer. I'm sure it'll be a weekend of pure nerding fun. I've always wanted to go and since E3 is all but extinct, this is the closest I think I'll get to a video-game convention.

July and August can NOT get here fast enough. Stone Cold Sciced!

This is going to be a year of travel. Both her and I have been saving for a while. You'd be amazed how much money one can save by not going out and spending eighty bucks at a bar Fridays and Saturdays. She's also been working a ton of O.T. and I've been trying to take on every little job I can. We've made interpersonal sacrifices, both of us, but in the end I believe it will be worth it.

On a non-related note: I'm four-hundred dollars away from having another bill paid off! And a year and a half early, I might add. After this, I will have two credit cards left and a student loan.
