So, I live in Japan, duh! I love it here, but the weather is killing me. Technically, Tsuya (Japan's rainy season) is over, but I don't think Mother Nature got the memo.

The skies are dark and gloomy here. (It reminds me of Seattle, Washington.) Everything is covered in green moss. And it's a lovely shade of green and gray here. But I'm tired of green and gray! I want to see blue skies with white puffy clouds. I want to lay on my back, in the DRY grass, and try to find animal shapes hidden in the white puffy clouds with Jude. I want to feel the sun's penetrating heat on my skin. I want to have to apply sunblock. I want my olive colored skin to turn tan. I want the sun back!

I'm tired of the darkness. It's depressing, dreary, and miserable.

It's July, I shouldn't have to sip tea to stay warm.

I'm a Texan. I need the sun. I need the heat. I need blue skies. But instead, this is what I get:
...the wet, damp, dreary, gray streets of Japan.
