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 😉
And this is all for now. I’m still jet lagged, but enjoying it so far! I think it will be a great year 🙂
A couple of quick notes to finish:
– obviously I need to change the name of the blog 🙂 I’m thinking of naming it Â«Una friki viajeraÂ» 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 🙂
Life of londoners is, well, busy 🙂
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 🙂
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! 😀
By the way, this post has been written with the wordpress android app, which I’m hoping will help me with my resolution 🙂
