and awkwardly sneaking Puricura ("Print Club") throughout every post is what we do ;)
❤ Hey Guys and Gals ❤
It is now time for another round of Guess When the Next Sporadic Post will be! Any bets? Haha!
Seriously, sorry for failing at timely posts ;)
I figured I should post a little debrief about my time in Hiroshima so far, since I've contributed absolutely nothing to the topic since first announcing that I moved here!
I started work mid-July in the heart of the city, and have been loving my life here ever since I arrived. The city is certainly much smaller than places like Tokyo or Osaka, but it has a very relaxed environment and the people are incredibly kind and fun to be around. The city itself is beautiful--green rolling mountains, a beautiful bay, and colorful neon lights at night all contribute to the unique atmosphere of the place. In many respects, it reminds me of Seattle. :)
Work has also been fun! I enjoy working with my students, and I have the most adorable co-teacher/roommate/buddy in the universe to share all experiences with! It's startling how well we get along. We have all the same interests, but just enough variation in taste that we never feel like we have to compete. For example, we both love Japanese fashion--but whereas I tend to go for elegant, glamorous styles, Rai rocks the cutesy pop look. Our personalities also click perfectly, even though we're almost polar opposites in that respect. When we had only known each other for two days, everyone we met thought we had been friends for years. Getting along with her was by far my biggest concern before moving here, but now that we've met it's sincerely the most effortless thing in the world to adore her. xD
Also, Hiroshima boys are weirder than either Lie or I can figure out how to deal with, but that is a long, long story (rather a series of novels) that may or may not ever be told xD
All in all, life here has been phenomenal so far. Now that things are starting to settle down here and there, it's been nice having moments to appreciate where I am and all the incredible experiences I've had so far <3
I don't know how often I'll have time for diary-like posts, but I'll do my best! In the mean time, I'll try to post outfit pics and at least weekly one-picture posts of things in the city--starting tonight! ;)
Thank you all so much for your patience in dealing with my lame, sporadic posts!
I hope I can manage my time better and make it up to you someday ;)
