Something unfortunate has happened to me recently. I have no appetite. It might be the heat, or it might be the fact that everyone around me seems to be leaving or moving or going through some kind of crisis, and I get sympathetic anxiety just watching them. It might be the fact that the end of my first year here in Ishikawa – and also of living alone – are drawing to a close within the next week. August is a month full of unknowns.
But hey, we’re all turning new pages in our lives. Here’s a soy milk toast to that.
Seriously, though, I can’t remember when I last had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for dinner (probably never). Someone needs to tell my stomach that a little bit of change is healthy.
