See you all in Japan!

Yesterday, I said goodbye to a person who I now consider to be a good friend of mine.  He studied at the Stanford Business School, and we met and started working together when he asked for my tutoring service (I tutor English to Japanese people who come through Stanford).  However, with the school year over and his company asking him to come back, he and his family must leave to go back to their home country.  It was awesome that we had the chance to get to know each other, but it’s definitely sad when you have to say goodbye.  Unfortunately, I have met many people through my tutoring service that have had to come and go.  This is the case with all Japanese people that come to Stanford because all of them need to get back to their lives/business in Japan after finishing up their studies.  However, the great thing is that most of us continue to stay in touch and I’m actually hoping to see some of them when I go to Japan for the competition next month.  It’ll be great to get to see them in person and catch up on all the things that have happened since they left.  I’m definitely looking forward to it!

First things first. I need to continue to train hard in the gym to get ready for the Japan meet.  There’s just about 4 weeks left until we compete but before that, the national team is set to meet next week in Colorado for another training camp.  It’s time to turn up the intensity again!
