Personal update (plus cute stuff!)

Hi folks! I just thought I’d check in with a personal update as I haven’t been online quite as much recently.

As most of you will know, I came back from Japan in April, and have been living in Bognor Regis since then. It was never my intention to stay in Bognor long, but it wasn’t easy to find a job. I applied for all sorts of jobs, but I knew in my heart that I really wanted to be doing something that would keep me connected to Japan.

Well, they say “good things come to those who wait”, and perhaps it’s true. Three months after my job hunt began I finally found what looks to be my dream job! I never talk about the details of my work or the companies I work for on this site, but I will just say this: I will be working for a charity in London, and I will be doing my little bit to help the UK and Japan build long-lasting relationships and connections. 😀

With the new job comes a new location, so I will be moving to London. Actually, I’m moving tomorrow! I’ll be living in Greater London, but will be very well-connected to attend Japan-related events in London (and other parts of the UK), and will always be exploring and looking out for hints of Japan in my daily life.

I might have quiet periods while I get adjusted to my new job and new surroundings, but I will be posting weekly as promised, and will update as much as I can via Facebook and Twitter, too. I’ll be continuing with my A-Z of Japan, and will also (finally!) be posting in detail about what I got up to at Hyper Japan.

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with something cute I discovered recently. When I saw this, I simply had to buy it for myself. My excuse? Well, I’ll have to have somewhere safe to keep my Oyster card if I’m taking the Tube every day… 😉

    • It’s something I debated about for a long time. I thought working in Japan was the best thing for me, but then I didn’t really want to be a teacher forever, and there aren’t many other options if you’re not fluent.
