You may recognize the title. Basically, it is a reference to the 7-day life cycle of the cicada, meaning that the eighth day is when the cicada has shuffled off this mortal coil, sort of how Ninjask becomes Shedinja. Anyway, it is a metaphorical reference to passing through the gateway to another world, another life. I bring it up because in the long interval since I left Vana'diel, there have been many changes in my life, changes that include a move from Vana'diel to Eorzea! More to tell, but the update will have to wait just a little longer.
