Decision made.

I’m not going to leave for Japan until September. I’ve emailed all parties involved in the summer activity expressing my apologies for withdrawing (extremely presumptuous of me to think that I may have made it through the selection process in any case!).

I suppose this will feel like a relief in the morning. What with dad’s dodgy ticker, and all these ‘things’ I feel I need to do before I leave the UK, well, it’ll just make my life a lot easier if I postpone my departure. There’s plenty of time to live in Japan in the future. Now is the important thing.

Speaking of which, it’s 4.02am. I’d best go to bed.
