My heart grows heavier with every moment. Doom is approaching. Soon my workdays will be significantly less enjoyable, my weekends significantly less joyous, my lunch hours significantly less entertaining.

is leaving

How did it come to this? How could time be so cruel as to bring this to pass? Why? Why?!

On Friday night I organized a huge going away party for Miss Yang. About thirty people showed up at my apartment, dressed in blue, and bearing blue food and drinks for a "Blue Without You" themed party. We even had Blues music and a little Blues dancing. Not to mention the decor. :) I hope Yang-chan knows now how many people care about her!

In about an hour I am going to wake her up (she's staying in the other room) and drive her to the airport. I have a feeling that there will be a ton of people there to see her off, too. That girl is well loved, that's for sure!

The "Blue Wall" with pictures of everyone expressing their blueness.

I sincerely hope you come back and visit Okinawa, Yang-chang. You will have a place to stay as long as I am here (which should be awhile yet). You've been a great friend, and I feel so lucky to have met you. Please stay in touch.

  1. Hi ReBekha!

    Are there many foreign teachers like you at your school? Is she the girl who you always travel with?!

    I know how much you miss her. Yes. Fun time really flies... I haven't met this close friend recently, so I envy you ;)

    I hope you are genki today :D

  2. There are three foreign teachers at my school. Two teach English and one teaches Chinese. :)
    Yes, she is my travel buddy! Now I can travel to China to visit her!

    Thank you for your comment, Ochi. I always love to hear from you. :)
