2006 has left me reeling, left me wanting more, left me entirely confused. Half way through the year I was whisked back to my home country from my adopted country. The first half of the year I pined for Australia, the second half of the year I have been, and still am, pining for Japan. I don’t know if I know how to live without constantly wanting to be somewhere else? I have been told by many other returned ex-pats that the transition can take longer than a year.
Recently among the blogs I read; the ‘Itunes music shuffle interview’ has been doing the rounds, and as it is probably a darn side more interesting than me rambling about the year that was, here ’tis.
So how is this done you ask? Well….
1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answer to the question.
