Hello, hola andこんにちは!Thanks for taking the time to check out my WordPress! Here’s a bit about me:

  • I recently moved back to the USA after spending three years in Japan as an ALT on the JET Program.
  • In Japan, I lived in Kumamoto (on Kyushu). Currently I reside in San Antonio, Texas.
  • My hair is naturally curly and people always seem surprised when I tell them.
  • I enjoy reading, writing (obviously), socializing and a myriad of other activities.
  • I am a Gemini 😀

My blog is probably going to deal with the topics of Travel,  Japan, Culture Shock, ESL, The JET Program, Expat life and various other things.  I hope you find something that interests you and constructive feedback is greatly appreciated 🙂

よろしくお願いします!

  1. Hi, thanks for stopping over at my blog! Your story about the rough school in Kumamoto is hilarious. And it’s true. You saw the true Japan. There are a lot of not excellent students in Japan and many of them have really funny and/or interesting personality. I enjoy chatting with taxi drivers, oweners of small shops, etc. when I go back to Japan – some (or many) of them were not great students 30-40 years ago but they are very fun to chat with.

  2. Oh culture shock, it’s funny how it works both ways, in going and returning home. Nothing like seeing your own country for the first time in ages with a fresh set of eyes and new perspectives.

    • Haha it really is, isn’t it? I didn’t quite expect it to hit me so hard when I returned, but it’s taken me a lot longer than I expected to overcome it! Seeing it from a new perspective is definitely invaluable, though!
