I booked my ticket. One way only. The flight is on May 4th, 11:20 and I will arrive in Japan on May 5th, 12:00.

It is very exciting and I feel exhilarated. Finally I’m moving forward.

There are so many little things to still take care of though. Sometimes, when I look at those and the pile of boxes in my apartment, I wish I could just get up, close the door and leave everything behind.

And then I remember that unresolved issues have the tendency to return and haunt you when you least expect it…
