Yeah, and I expect to get a lot busier from next week when the real work starts kicking in. The Japanese are known for working till late at night, and due to the nature of my job, I'll have to do the same.

Well, it'll be a good experience for me in any case. Here's to 2 years of slogging like a dog~

Your aunt is really... unique. Trash is supposed to be dirty LOL

In Japan though, because you can't take out your trash anytime you like, you have to keep it in your house until the appropriate garbage collection day comes. So if I have stinky trash, I'll definitely wrap it up real tight. And try to keep it out of my sight as far as possible...
