Happy 2012!

With a little bit of delay but… Happy New Year! I hope 2011 was a great year for you and 2012 will be even better!

Last year was pretty intense for me, the two biggest events being moving to Tokyo and getting engaged πŸ™‚

Christmas was a very busy period as well (sorry I didn’t have time to visit everyone), and I still haven’t decided my New Year’s resolutions! And that is a first for me πŸ˜‰

Anyway I wish you all the best for 2012!

Happy New 2012!

A new stage in my life

July 1st has defined a new stage for me, since it is the date stamped in my passport as entering Japan for a year!

As you read it, I’m no longer living in London, but going flat hunting in Tokyo! I arrived on Friday July 1st with 2 pieces of luggage (and my boyfriend who did the same). I was very tired, so after getting to the temporary accommodation I had a quick nap and then went to my office, to meet my new team and get a sim card for my phone (which seems is pretty uncommon over here). I had a nice oyakodon for dinner (new kanji learned!) And went early to bed.

Saturday, all day flat hunting and in the evening we visited a couple of izakayas with a colleague from London who has been here for half a year. Which means I’m not having an early start on Sunday πŸ˜‰

And this is all for now. I’m still jet lagged, but enjoying it so far! I think it will be a great year πŸ™‚

A couple of quick notes to finish:
– obviously I need to change the name of the blog πŸ™‚ I’m thinking of naming it «Una friki viajera» but I’d love to hear your thoughts
– many times I’ll be egocentric and say I, I, I, when I should say we, but my boyfriend is very fond of his privacy, so please forgive me πŸ™‚

See you soon and have a good Sunday!

And we’re back!

Or so it seems πŸ™‚

Life of londoners is, well, busy πŸ™‚
And there are many reasons (or excuses) why I find it hard to blog.

First of all, I always think that nobody cares about what I say. There’s too much information in our lives, mostly irrelevant and superficial regarding subjects that we care about. And I don’t want to spend time doing something that people will find boring and just mark as read in their readers.

Secondly, I’m a perfectionist. I started writing in English with the goal improving my writing skills. Unfortunately, that means I spend quite some time proofreading the tiniest of texts and it’s hard to find the time (and energy) to blog.

And I could keep going, but I won’t bore you with the details πŸ™‚

I still don’t know how I’ll focus the blog, I’ll figure it out as I go. Of course comments will be welcome! πŸ˜€

By the way, this post has been written with the wordpress android app, which I’m hoping will help me with my resolution πŸ™‚

Stay tuned and see you soon!

Wii Fit Age

Yesterday’s body test announced my wii fit age is 20 years :). Impressive! I felt really good…

But then a message appeared:

That’s a difference of -7 years. That would mean that your body is still in relatively good condition.

Should I be happy?Β I certainly felt this was not the message I deserved.. But anyway, this measure is a bit random, and two days ago I was 35 (with a nicer message!)
