As one of my friends back at Stanford predicted, although I had a hard time leaving America, I came to love Japan so much it was hard to come back. Yes, goodbyes are hard. But sometimes you have to say goodbye, at least for a while, to have a new adventure.

At the end of the winter quarter my junior year, I was in desperate need of a break from my everyday routine. I had just completed a difficult course load and, while I was sad to say bye to my family and friends, I was looking forward to a new experience.
