Next Wednesday, I travel alone to Tokyo, Japan for 1.5 weeks. It’s a much needed trip as I have been wrecked by the death of my dad, the selfishness and lack of sympathy from my wife, and the new world that I find myself in. The purpose of this trip is to reset myself. I am a wreck and my emotions are a mess. I want to take this time and look introspectively and reflect on what I want my life to be.
* Do I want to stay married to this sweet but crazy girl?
* Do I want children?
* How can I help my mom?
* What do I ultimately want to do with my life?
* do I want to eat ramen or mosburger when I’m there?
The best part of this trip, I dont really need to spend much. My airplane ticket was purchased with my bonus credit card points. I’m staying at a friend’s place so no need to pay for hotel. Just need money to eat and local tourist stuff.
So what to do in Japan?
In my younger days, I could imagine doing many debaucherous things there. Hostess bars, soapland, partying in Ropponggi. Meet girls, get drunk and forget where I am. These days, I rather just chill, eat, and stop by Akihabara the geek capital of the world. I take marriage and vows very seriously. I wish my wife felt that way…
