I have restarted on my road to Japanese proficiency and will probably go over my plan in a latter post, but so far I'm not having much of a problem remembering what I had forgotten.
Went out with my fiance and got two new finches for a total of 5. one was a replacement for a bronze winged mannikin that she had bought a couple of days ago and had inexplicably died during the night. The second was a one eyed spice finch which I have named Rum.
Have started on the outline of the story I want to write, but to make sure I have everything in order it will probably be weeks or months before I really put pen to paper (figuratively speaking). I'm happy with the progress it is making and the route it is heading down.
Still need to start looking for a job, but I'm kinda enjoying the free time for a while.
