Finish college, check; Work visa, check; Clothes shopping, check; Packed suitcases, ...

15th December, 2010, at 9:30pm: Thus marketh the time upon which Jaketh Tritteth completedst his college education. And Jake danced a spasmodic jig in the school parking lot.

Yes, my friends: it's finally over! Ten years of college classes have finally come to a wonderful completion! But, even while college was yet in session, there was much preparation for Japan. Today, i received my work visa in the mail. Now i can emigrate to Japan legally! :o) I've also completed my clothes shopping; except i still need to invest in a suit.
On the 12th, i'm off to visit the place where God rested his finger when He formed the world. (That's Colorado, for those of you who haven't been there.) I'll spend most of two weeks in the Denver metropolis: which is sad because it's kind of "cityfied" yet positively splendiferous because some of the best friends in the world live there! Until i leave for CO, it's pack and purge time.
That's all for now! ~ † jake †

Well, the semester is winding down ... and ten years of college education is finally nearing an end!!!!

For those of you who don't know this already, i've traveled a rather eventful road over the past four years. And while i am incredibly grateful for the unbelievable ways God has used these hard times, it certainly did put a damper on finishing college. But here i am: four class periods remaining, then finals, and then graduation!

PURGING: recyling; trashing; giving; selling; storing, packing. Good grief! It's amazing how many preparations one incurs whilst moving to Japan! Making a to-do list would seem helpful, but i'm not sure what good it actually does, as the list just keeps growing! Seems like each item on the list requires a bunch of 'prerequisites.' Moving within the country is easy compared to this, because you can just throw your stuff in a car or a moving van and deal with it later. I'll be so relieved when this is done!

OK. Now that i got that off my chest ... =^)

I wanted to let you all know that i came to realize how difficult it is to comment ("post") on this blog. It requires you to have some kind of account to log in. Now, creating a Google account isn't terribly difficult; but it's totally fine if you just wanna reach me on Facebook or email.

Have a great day, ya'll!
