old hand syndrome …

Filed under: Life in Japan — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 5:05 am

or “your jaw can only drop so many times”, as i like to call it.  one thing that let me down on this holiday, was, well, me.  i thought i`d be more giggly.  more awe struck.  but in hindsight, i was asking too much of myself.  i was asking myself to feel just as surprised and out of place as when i took my first trip overseas to the phillippines, or my first long trip, to japan.  and that`s just silly.  been there, done that.  can`t do it again – it`s like being a virgin twice. 

so what do you do?  pack it in and never travel again?  that`s a valid choice i guess, but mine was to accept the new me.  and after a day or two, i noticed a small smile kinda sitting on my face.  and i kinda liked it.   the rollercoaster ride of emotions had been replaced by a good beer buzz. 

girlfriend has been noticing old hand syndrome in a different setting – playing videogames.  will she stop playing?  maybe.  that is a valid choice – plenty of cool stuff out there to do.
