That’s fantastic. First off your English is really really good. Nobody can tell it’s not your native language.

I started writing again mainly for myself. I can reference my posts later, and the process of writing helps me retain what I learned. It’s also a rememberance of how far I’ve come in X amount of time which is really motivating.

Secondary to that, I hope writing helps me get noticed. I’d love to speak at a conference one day or have someone say they read my blog and are interested in hiring me or at least interviewing me.

Yep! I live in Tokyo - been here for a year and plan to be here for one more year Lord willing. Then I'll move back to the US.

Kyoto! We're hoping to get down there in the next few months to see it. Brave learning Japanese. They have three alphabets...THREE hahaha.

Haha... Had to learn 1500 kanjis within 1.5 years, and now I only remember less than 30 🀣🀣🀣

Brave to live there in Tokyo! I could get lost there. Haha...
Too many people & too many train lines! πŸ˜…
I like Osaka more than Tokyo though. Tokyo is too crowded.

I had the same reaction. Tokyo was just too busy and shiny. It wasn't as fun as fun as I expected.

I spent time in Kyoto and loved it. It's so pretty and everyone was super nice.

Can't agree more that people in Kyoto are very polite, nice and friendly πŸ˜„

Did you go there for holiday or staying?
