Big changes

Well, before I get into everything, let me show you Mt. Fuji after the lastest storm last week. Wow...there is snow and everything and it's still October. It looks good, right?

In any case, I have been very, VERY busy recently. Mostly, because I have been living on borrowed time in Japan. My current visa expires in December, although that is a much better than being illegal, which I kind of was for two weeks in October while I waited for what turned out to be the rejection of my first visa application change. Actually, since the immigration department had my passport I couldn't go home anyway.

I am in the process of applying for an investor's visa and I should get that. I really hope so, because I have formed a company and signed a five-year lease for a location in Kugenuma...I am opening a surf shop!! Woo hoo! It is exciting, but it really seems to be one of those jobs you have to save up for. However, I think I can make it work...wish me luck! Hoping to open in mid-December.
