I''m done saying "hai"—yes—to questions I don't really understand to not seem totally clueless. Doing that got me a sweetened iced latte today. Ugh. 


Started packing. Had to buy a carry-on because I have too many gifts and goodies. I stress out about what to buy to bring home. It feels like it all has to be precious and meaningful and unique to Japan. I'm overthinking things way too much these days. The result of too much "me time."
