So it seems that I let my blog go during my last few months in Japan... so I have a bunch of updates that I'll roll out over the next few days to complete the blog- full circle!
As for now, I am back home in America, touched down in Newark last week on the 14th- the year was incredible!
11/16/2011 UPDATE! More delayed than I would have wanted, but better late than never! Recap of the last 2 months of my year in Japan imminent!
