  • How did they even enforce that?

  • So it's pretty vague on the details.

  • Understandably so.

  • You know, early days and all that.

  • You would think that by this point we would all be pretty much used to living with a question mark hanging over basically any future plans.

  • But more realistically, it doesn't really get any easier, does it?

  • Luckily, there are no rules saying that you have to have perfectly adapted Thio.

  • All the change that's happened like I honestly think it's OK to struggle.

  • There's been a lot of challenge, a lot of sadness, an incredible amount of loss through it all, almost too much to even even process.

  • Honestly, if you've gotten this far with both your health and your sanity intact, you pretty much proven that you have the mental strength to survive.

  • It's a big deal.

  • You should be proud of yourself should be a huge confidence.

  • All the sponsored jobs and shamisen performances suddenly disappeared, and the shamisen performances, especially, are a huge part of what was making all of this possible.

  • But we're still here in some ways potentially doing better than we've ever done, really making the best out of it.

  • I guess it's eliminated of lemons and all that honest question.

  • A.

  • I've spent the better part of probably 40 minutes in this park, so peaceful here.

  • It's just the sound of the birds.

  • A little bit of construction every now and then, but for the most part, it's it's quiet and there's nobody.

  • There is nobody here, a beautiful day.

  • This is probably one of the things I miss the most about.
