I don't think I will be taking the JLPT this year, after all. It's only two weeks away, and I still haven't found the time to really sit down and study for it. There's such a whirlwind of revenue-generating work coming in that it seems silly to 'waste' time on something that has no value for me (yet) aside from a sense of accomplishment. It feels like such a letdown to choose the JLPT to let go, though, because it's been a goal for years. Oh well. I'll just take it when I'm rich, and more pera pera desu. Next year, I hope. Haha!
(Or maybe I can just wing the JLPT anyway, but it's almost a whole day lost when I could be working on getting more of my backlog finished instead. *sigh* Well, we'll see.)
I'm settling down at work. I've been given more responsibilities, which I like, and I'm learning so many new things. I also finally got my own desk with a lockable cabinet. The last time I had one of those was over 10 years ago! XD
One upside to being busy is I have no time to get the doldrums and dwell on all the negative things that have happened this year. I have hope that I can end it with a bang, anyway. Fingers crossed! Things are looking up!
