This is the blog of a 20-something born-and-raised Phoenician, joining the likes of the 1.5% foreign population in the Land of the Rising Sun.
After graduating in 2011, one of my Besties and I took the plunge and hopped a plane across the Pacific, with no job prospects and a limited amount of savings, willing fate to lead us right. It was then that I started this blog, and have since continued chronicling the ups and downs of our crazy lives as foreigners in this weird but wonderful country.
And now, I have settled in Kyoto, arguably the best city in the country. For a year I furthered my language study at a Japanese language school, continued onto a job in real estate, and am still on a quest to find myself.
I love languages. I love words and writing, and while I may not be the best at it, that doesn't stop me from enjoying it.
So now we'll see where this chapter of life takes me. If you're interested in Japan, or traveling or foreign countries in general, or just like reading about other people's lives, read on and enjoy.
