Well it’s been another three months since the last entry and it does seem to be the right time to knock one up with as usual, a cup of coffee. Time is an on-going issue at the moment, I’m currently rocking four modules this year and have fallen behind on three, not because of lack of motivation but simply because the amount of time available to me at the time of the entry is almost non-existent and the work load is higher than expected. I am currently back in Tokyo and have been for the last month to sort out all sorts of things; so many mornings consist of getting up at three or four (time difference) to attend a tutorial for units I haven’t reached yet, then blaze through whatever needs to be done and then crack on with university work, then in bed by maybe eleven or midnight, ready to repeat. Sometimes the time pressure is incredibly stressful… but it must get done. There are two assignments due in the next two weeks and only one is half finished, it’s not very professional on my part but to make up, after this entry I’m going to be sitting down and blasting my way through everything as I have two weeks of pure free time. Immigration is currently processing the misery experience of documentation so something may come up about that but it usually takes three months. University work is now top priority so going out exploring is off the cards, there is a 75% chance of returning in a few months’ time anyway and hopefully by then, all work will be completed including all university work. The reality is that the uncertainty is making it difficult to predict what will happen during the summer months. – If everything is delayed, it’ll be just work and taking the bike out on the mountain if the weather is good… but sometimes riding through grizzly weather and storm force rain, fully caked in mud is great.
Oh yes, this virus thingy is getting a bit serious now isn’t it, it doesn’t sound good at all. All this panic buying and toilet roll extremism is a bit too much isn’t it, the jokes here are endless. I think the demand and supply diagram could be used for the toilet roll buying for a future assignment. In all seriousness of the situation, it does sound bad and hope that all recover well and everything returns to normal. I think the charts are going to keep economists talking for decades, the pound recently broke through the thirty year low this week which is greatly concerning, even after the bull run. The world will need to keep an eye on these charts, but it will be an incredible investment opportunity further down the line. This virus does greatly affect what happens in the next few months and there is a real chance that all flights in and out of the UK maybe dropped in the coming weeks. The situation here in Japan is not that bad, everyone is just wearing masks but this is normal anyway, the only noticeable difference is the lack of tourists which could be a good thing.
Need to keep pushing! Two weeks, we can do this. If all goes well, will catch up and have the assignments finished ready to begin the next batch.
Better make another coffee, life blood of the workaholic.
