Inspiration: more sugoi

   These last five months, aka my "involuntary sabbatical" have been THE BEST. As much as I'm excited to see where the heck I'm going, I have just loved this time and am trying to make the most of every single day. This is the most exhilarating, scariest, awesomest, happiest time ever. The Japanese have a word that I think sums it up well: 「すごい」(sugoi). It means wonderful, and terrible. And I certainly haven't been feeling terrible (far from it), but the stress is real. And change is good, though it's hard. I love the idea that a single word encompasses the whole spectrum.
