i think this is my longest post ever on this blog



//Fuck off for a moment, Skull Man. This is speshul :3

So for 50 followers I wanted to make a list of people I look up to/respect/ think are definitely worth a follow. *Deep breath* Here we gooo~

ask-bass-forte: The first blog I EVER interacted with. She’s pretty much the reason I am where I am now. She’s also incredibly cool and you should totally give her a look.

crashadventure: Super awesome person, who I owe an apology to. (Dropped thread, sorry >~<) The mun is nice, and the muse is extremely well-written and interesting. 

future-russian-princess: Probably my biggest inspiration so far on Tumblr. Not only that, but my longest continuous RP thread is with this blog. Also most replies are prompt and well-written. (Side note: Skull Man and Kalinka are super cute together c:)

recalibratedadventures: Really cool blog, first and foremost. I’m a fan of multi-muse blogs despite not being one myself, and this one takes the cake. Mun is friendly, each muse is well thought out, and just an overall great blog.

I’m making this post on short notice, as I have to leave for about a day, but here are the people I don’t have time to write about but are definitely worth mentioning. If I had enough time to write about each of these people I would.












If you didn’t make this list, I still love you (no homo), but I probably just ran out of time to make this. 

Thank you to all my followers <3

celmmings NOA IS LIKE 1/5TH OF MY BEING„„ she is 10/10 the strongest person i know and she is so beautiful and funny i love noa so much. i do not know what my life would be like without her this is cheesy and lame but noa is important to me i cant believe someone as wonderful as her puts up with my constant shit

First, I’d like to apologize. I started this blog to track my experience as a JET in Japan and also to reassure my family and friends that are following that I am indeed still alive and kicking. Lately, however, it  seems to have morphed into a rant-blog instead, which I’m sure no one wants. I think, for any future JETs that do come across this, it’s important to see the rants – living and working in Japan isn’t some kind of fantasy land: everything might be cute and fluffy but that doesn’t mean that aren’t problems aplenty. But, in any case, I will try my best from here on out to keep the rant to a minimum.

These are a couple recent shots from my walks home from work. As the weather gets nicer, and before the Japan humidity kicks in, I’ve decided I’d get back into the routine of taking Lance on walks whenever I can. These are all taken with an iPod, so fairly bad quality, but I’ll definitely have more in the future!

What follows is going to get a bit long, but if you’re curious please feel free! I’m going to talk a bit about my recent few days, and the past couple months :D I’ll do this in a couple parts, for the next couple days, because it turns out there’s a lot of catch-up to do.

-Part 1-

Those of you who know me know that I’m not a blogger. I enjoy reading the occasional blog and have some very talented friends who regularly post but I’m a pretty private person and a perfectionist, so the thought of writing and publishing anything personal makes me sweat. For example, I have now rewritten the previous sentence five times ha. But I’m going to give it a go! This will probably be the longest post I ever write but I think it will be the most important too, so give it a read if you have a minute. This is our story.

One of my favorite phrases is “God may be found midst the pots or the posies.” My hope is that my simple, messy life and this simple, messy tale will be a reminder of God’s faithfulness. Spoiler alert: I’m a Christian and will probably talk about Jesus sometimes on this blog. If you’re not into that, this particular post might seem a little odd, but bear with me. I’ll try to take out the Christian cheese and share what I know to be true straight up.

Four years ago Ben and I began feeling particularly restless. We’d been married for a year and were happy but didn’t feel settled. We both had great jobs in Houston but Ben decided he wanted to pursue a career in gaming (that’s gamer speak for the video game industry). It’s hard to hear God, I mean to really know he’s speaking. But, both Ben and I heard, not audibly but in the weird sneaky way God communicates, that he should pursue that passion. It’s one of the few times in my life that I did not doubt whether it was God or my own mind speaking.

So being young and dumb, we surmised that meant Ben should quit his current job and move to San Francisco for three months while I moved in with my parents and funded this endeavor. Prior to the move, Ben joined a start up video game development company, Runt, with his brother and another guy, and the group got accepted into IGN’s Indie Open House in SF. We assumed that after three months the game would be out and would be wildly successful so then I would move to San Francisco. Based on these assumptions, we decided to pack our entire lives into a pod that could be easily shipped once we sorted out our living situation. Again, let me reiterate we were young and dumb. Spoiler alert: All of our belongings remained packed and stored in Houston for the next two years.

As you can imagine being apart for three months was incredibly challenging. I don’t recommend long distance marriage. We joke that it’s taken us two years to recover from those three months, but it’s kind of true.

The Runt team worked tirelessly over the next few months and released a demo at the end of their stay at IGN. They continued to work on the full length game but our financial runway was getting pretty short so Ben came back to Houston to work remotely. We stayed with my parents for a few months and Ben began doing contract IT work in addition to working on the game. Still thinking we would be moving out to San Francisco soon, we began signing short term leases at a series of furnished apartments in Houston.

Other than being apart this was the toughest season for us. It was the kind of season where you check and double check your bank account to make sure you can buy a gallon of milk before pay day. I was also personally going through some tough stuff, morning the loss of my best friend’s dad and trying to support and encourage her as she prepared to walk down the aisle without him. I was disappointed, discouraged, and disillusioned. I felt like I’d heard God so clearly, so why wasn’t he coming through?

Finally Ben and I came to and realized that despite our best efforts we would not be moving to San Francisco. After a lot of prayer and HAR-stalking (still one of my favorite pastimes) we found a beautiful apartment in the Heights and ceremoniously unpacked the pod. We still celebrate Pod Day every year, hilariously and appropriately on April 1st. Over the next year or so I got a promotion and a raise, Ben started a new job, and we found a great local church. Due to the demands of his new job Ben had to stop working for Runt, and stop working on the game we’d devoted three years of our lives to. It was difficult to give up, but we both knew it had to be done. I’m so thankful I’m married to a hard working man who values providing for his family.

The past couple of years have been smooth sailing compared to the early ones. We started aggressively saving for a house (more HAR-stalking), traveling and generally enjoying our newly acquired DINK status. But, about 8 months ago we both began feeling extremely restless again despite our comfortable lives. We’re restless by nature, but usually not at the same time. Whenever we both feel something simultaneously it’s exciting and terrifying because it usually means God is up to something.

I was emerging out of an extremely stressful season at work and decided to think about and pray about finding a new job. I am PUMPED to share that starting next week I will begin working with my dear friend Melanie at her marketing/PR firm Meeks Marketing! That whole situation is nothing short of God-ordained, because I can work remotely, from home, which will come into play later. Meanwhile, and completely separate from my desire to make a job change, Ben and I decided he should submit his resume for a few dream jobs at gaming studios to combat his restlessness. There was no pressure this time around so we figured, what’s to lose?

Ben began casually sending his resume out in late November 2015 and in December got a bite. When he lived out in San Francisco he was friends with a guy named Zach (Zach if you ever read this we owe you about 100 dinners) who works at a prestigious triple A gaming studio, 2K Games, located in none other than San Francisco. Zach passed Ben’s resume along and five rounds of interviews and one day trip to SF later Ben was offered the job! I have to brag on Ben for a minute, 2K received a ridiculous number of applications for the job he was eventually offered. This guy is talented.

The days of waiting between when Ben’s 2K journey began and when he was offered the job were excruciating. We had been so close before and were quite honestly terrified that we’d come up short again. I have been forced to rely on God over the past few months in ways I have never had to before and he has come through, like he always does.

One example of God nudging us along throughout this process occurred the day Ben found out he would be getting an offer. Usually, Ben and I watch Wheel of Fortune every night, I know we have the souls of 80-year-olds, but we’re English majors so that should count for something. Ben was on his way back from San Francisco and I was late for The Wheel. So, I turned it on about 20 minutes in and looked up to see a puzzle get solved that said “A once-in-a-lifetime adventure.” Now, you can chalk this up to coincidence and I won’t judge you for it, but I’d been praying all day for Ben’s final interview and in my heart of hearts, I know it was more than a coincidence. Ben was supposed to hear back a week later but found out that evening he’d be getting an offer. Also, the guy who won The Wheel’s name was Ben, and it was a couples show, so both he and his wife won.

If you’ve made it this far, I am impressed! But, to be fair, I warned you it would be a long post. To summarize it all, Ben and I will be moving to San Francisco on March 18th and couldn’t be more excited. He will be a part of the design and production team at 2K and I will be working remotely for Meeks Marketing and traveling to Houston every three months or so. God has been so incredibly faithful throughout this entire journey and I guess the cliche phrase that “His timing is always perfect” actually rings true.

Shout out to our family and friends who have supported us throughout this entire crazy process, we will dearly miss you. But, the journey is just beginning and we can’t wait to continue walking it with you guys.
