Winter: With a Vengeance

I don’t know what happened, but in the last week it became really damn cold again. After temperatures hit the low 20s about two weekends ago they suddenly dropped and have kept dropping. It seems my sorry excuse for a heater is starting to crap out after only a few months worth of use and it takes forever to get my apartment warmed up again. I’ve heard reports of snow a bit further north too. Damn random weather patterns. I haven’t really had a chance to create any new art lately, which is disappointing. It’s been hard to find inspiration, not to mention when the temperature is low and the winds are blowing like crazy it’s hard to go out and take photographs, despite the light being good. Last time I went and tried I nearly got blown over a ledge on act tower. Makes me feel insecure about my equipment and tripod sitting there, oh yeah, and my safety. I’m hoping conditions improve soon as I have a few concept series I want to go out and shoot.

Hard to believe there’s less than 2 months left to my stay here. Now that I completed my major project I’m doing a variety of smaller task. However, having written all my requisite reports, I really feel like I’m starting to wind down already. It’s hard to decide how I feel about my time here coming to an end, there’s many things I want to return home for and many important things in my life I miss there. At the same time, I know there’s a lot of things I’ll miss about life here in Japan.
