I have finally arrived in Japan, the land of the rising sun. Even though last Friday was my first day at work, today was my first day doing real work.
So what’s it like to live a Japanese life? many people ask me such questions, how do I feel, is it nice over there, etc. To be honest, I don’t know. Strange as it may seems, my circumstance is not that much different than when I was in Australia, I work with a bunch of Australian blokes, still working as full time geek (which I thoroughly enjoy), only that I am now in a different geographical location.
I guess that is what happen when you have studied enough Buddhism, things doesn’t shake you in a majorly dramatic way. Japan is a country. My apartment is a place to live. It is not insignificant, but it is not very special either. Suffice to say that given my circumstance, I am fortunate enough to say that my few days in here have been very comfortable indeed.
How long will I be here for, I don’t know. But this experience, just the act of going through the negotiation, the interviews, the preparations, have made me grew in ways I couldn’t imagine.
Let’s see where this wave will take me.
