I Moved! (and other updates)

Life has been a little crazy the past few months. In July, I was busy packing and preparing for my move to Fukuoka City. I found a job here and came towards the end of the month to set everything up and find an apartment. Then in August, my ALT job officially ended, and I spent a few days hanging out with friends before I left for Tokyo for job training.

I had tons of going away parties and cried so much. Kagoshima is a huge part of me, because I grew up down there. Many amazing and important experiences will keep me from ever forgetting that place. But life must go on! I went to Tokyo for three weeks for training and lived that entire time in a tiny hotel with no friends. I did meet some great people at training, and I hope we’ll see each other again, but being in Tokyo was not all fun for me. Everything is so close together, and there are so many people that sometimes I felt like I literally couldn’t breathe. Thankfully, all of that is over now, and I’ve officially moved to Fukuoka. Yay!

I love it here so far. My apartment is coming together nicely, I’m meeting people and having fun, and a lot of things are changing for the better. Since I don’t have to eat school lunch or go to work parties all the time anymore, I’ve decided to commit to being a vegan. So far it’s been a bit rough, because I didn’t have a refrigerator for a week and people keep bringing delicious foods to work. So for now I’m vowing to not eat any animal products at home, but being full-time vegan may take some time. I’m definitely trying though. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, and now seems to be the perfect time to do it.

I don’t have much else to say right now. It will take me some time to get fully established, but once I do, I’ll be posting a lot more pictures and adventure stories! Thanks for sticking around!
