I want to travel to Japan within the next three years- gotta save up money to make a trip worth it. But I also want to get a tattoo or two. Is it worth it to hold off on getting tattoos until I’ve been to Japan because I want to experience an onsen/bath house and generally just not feel inhibited in exploring? Or is that worry about being limited as a tourist in Japan if I have tattoos an unfounded one?

Prepped a partner for a call today that I was taking lead on since I’m the only one who’s actually reviewed or done anything for this case. Halfway through the call, he jumped into the conversation (interrupting me) to regurgitate random things I had told him before the call.

Why do partners be so grimy sometimes also how do I ease my way out of workin w him

Broke up a 10 year relationship about 6 months ago. He is already dating someone else and we have cut communication. I dream almost every night with him and now his gf is also appearing in my dreams. I don’t think of them during the day but they come in my dreams, and it feels like a lucid dream. What does it mean? How can I stop this? It really bothers me because I don’t really care about them.
