When I was in Japan, a new quirk was added to my personality. There was once a time where I could stay in my house for entire days without going out. But, in Japan, and living in an incredibly small apartment, there was no way I could stay inside for a whole day. Whether it was a grand adventure seeing what was on the other side of town, or just running down to the convenience store for a carton of milk, I just had to be outside for some part of the day. That’s now become a permanent part of me.
