I took this when I was in Switzerland a few years ago. It was one of those awesome moments when you're glad you have your camera out.

What I Watched This Month:
Stranger Things. Is everyone in the world watching this at the moment? It's a pretty awesome series.
I also watched some free-to-air TV which I rarely do and now I remember why I don't watch it. TV is crap. The only watchable thing on is The Simpsons. Australians are obsessed with food and home ownership/renovations. Boring.
Work and Money:
My income took a serious slide and, because I was focused on more immediate issues (ie. not catching bubonic plague from rats), I've not addressed it. My writing productivity was way down too, for the same reasons. I wrote about 3K words in August. Probably my lowest writing month in about three years.
On the other hand, I got the settlement from selling my investment property (my mum's house) so I'm not exactly broke. I will be when I have to pay the Capital Gains Tax on it though. Australian government, you suck balls.
Coming in September 2016:
Back to Tokyo on the 11th. Normally, I stay in cheaper neighbourhoods but I'm sick of inconvenience so this time I'm staying in Aoyama. Also, I figure rats can't afford to live in Aoyama, right?
I am determined to get my historical novel finished. It keeps getting pushed aside for easier projects but I want that damn thing done. Then I might write a sequel.
Catching up with Tokyo friends.
Okay, the hugest thing in September will be finding out if I hit in the Arashi concert ticket ballot. I won't. Then I'll cry.
Also, my birthday.
