A Personal Note

Wednesday, 17 September 2008

Been going back and forth whether I should post something about this, and deceided to. It is NOT MMA related, its actually kind of personal, so there is no need to keep reading if you dont want to.

It will affect this blog though. I just dont know how much yet...

To get to the point, I work at Lehman in Tokyo. I guess most have heard the news about Lehman Brothers, so I wont go in details. Basically I dont know right now what the future holds. This is not something that was totally unexpected to me, but it still comes as a huge shock.

This week there has been very little sleep for me, I still have a job but dont know for how long. I have a wife and a kid, so packing up and leaving is not done over night.

So what does this mean for the future? Well, I will continue this blog. It has been a great source of motivation in anything I do and I would hate to give it up. When the day to leave Japan, the most likely destination is Norway. The only change I can see is that I wont get to events in Japan. BUT in that case I am will get to events in Europe.

Whatever the future holds, I know it will be exciting. Whatever happens, I will make the best of it, and if this blog is affected, I hope it will be an improvement.

Here is a video of what happened in NY when Lehman announced that they were filing for chapter 11.
