Japan Day 1: Fukuoka

May 7, 2019

It used to be that when people asked how I was doing, I would answer good, great, or having a tough day. Then, I caught myself repeatedly saying I’m super busy; or I need more time in a day; or I’m running around like a chicken without a head. Busy, Busy, Busy. I’m sure you get the idea!

With anxieties building up combined with restless sleep cycles I felt overwhelmed. So, I decided to craft a more healthy me by minimalizing from every aspect of my life. Some I eliminated altogether and others I simply put them aside for a break.

The weekly blog posting was on that break pile, in case you were wondering why you haven’t received anything. And now with a much simpler lifestyle and renewed energy, I am back.

With this surge of renewed energy, I am so excited to start blogging again that I am going to bring you with me on a trip to Japan. Okay, maybe not physically but definitely visually. I will share with you “the event of the day” covering challenges, heartaches, and abnormal situations that players have to deal with behind the scenes throughout the two tournaments.

As you have probably sensed from my previous postings that I like to keep things simple and unique with personal touches. So, for the next two weeks, tune in to my blog. Without further ado, join us on our first stop in Fukuoka.

Getting to know Fukuoka

Other than the start up tournaments, it is customary for the tournament to host a Players Party to honor the players and coaches with great food and a show. There were close to five hundred people attending tonight’s event celebrating the opening of the first day of the tournament.

Tune in tomorrow for Day 2.
