night I got in to the States on the night of the 14th. My plane landed a bit late, 15 minutes after 7. However, due to the thunderstorm, we weren’t allowed to disembark until 9pm. (apparently there wasn’t space for our aircraft to park and let off passengers) Being stuck on an aircraft for an additional 2 hours after a 12 hour flight wasn’t my idea of a good time. I called J… which prompted an announcement “passengers that are using their cellphones, we ask that you refrain from using any devices that send out signals…” oops. Other than that, customs and baggage claim went smoothly. We finally got out of their a little before 10.

We got home around 11pm… we had to run back and forth from the cab, getting soaked in the storm. That was kinda fun. Otherwise… it’s a bit lonely to be back. It’s so quiet after being surrounded by people for 24/7. I can’t believe I’m saying this but… I miss Japan. I miss Kagoshima. Strange, eh? Usually, I can’t wait to come back. I suppose the circumstance is different, though. The apartment was empty… without my cat or my father.

Yesterday, I should have called the University regarding the hold on my account, loans, and health center regarding my insurance. Uhg. Instead, I spent sometime jogging the loop in central park and hanging out with J.

I’m a bit apprehensive…

Tomorrow, I’m off to Jones Beach for the Tori Amos concert. Friday, I’m off to Long Island for orientation… and then… some free time.

I’ve realized how much of my time here is spent alone. Of course, that is bound to change in the coming months of school starting all over again. (and the job. meep.) Sigh.
