Life Post: Family and the Scariness of the Future

That headache I had yesterday really might have been a sign of bad things to come. I think I'm getting sick. After I wrote that, my throat started to bother me, and I couldn't stop coughing. Now it's been hurting. My head isn't like yesterday though, so at least there's that. I'm really hoping my allergies just decided to flare up or something, but this is strange because I never get sick around this time of the year.

Despite that, today was a pretty nice day. It was my cousin's high school graduation part, so I got to spend time with some family, including people I don't get to see that often. It was a pretty small portion of my mom's side (and my mom's side is huge really) and my cousin's other side of the family was also there, but it was still really nice to see the people that we did and talk to them. One of my cousins is moving from the east coast to Alaska with her family, so this also served as a sort of going away party (even though they already lived out of the area).

I also had to start answering the "what year are you in college?" questions with "a senior" for the first time today, so now I'm getting all sorts of more detailed follow up questions about what I plan to do after graduation. That's slightly terrifying. It's especially nerve-wracking when I don't have a conventional answer, and I don't know how people will react. They could easily say they don't think I'll actually manage to do it, but they didn't. They all sounded really excited. It helps that a lot of my family lived in Japan already and loved it, so they're excited about me possibly living there too. And I have another cousin who wants to move there too. For some reason, Japan is just really popular with my family, and that's probably what originally jump started the interest in moving there for me too.

On Youtube the other day, I posted the Unpopular Opinions Book Tag, so you can check that out if you're interested. I rant about a few annoyances I have that usually stay in my head. Because of that, I might have ranted just a little too much.
