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.
