Life in Japan


It's been a while, right!? Quite frankly, I haven't felt like posting anything here.. at all. But recently I've been thinking a lot about taking up blogging again. Or at least whenever I feel like.

So.. it's been almost 3 months since I moved to Japan. It's been going quite well so far. Although it's been a huge adjustment of my life.

At some periods it has made me feel really stressed. Moving abroad is scary. It's not that I'm not enjoying life in Japan. More like stepping out of my comfort zone. I guess this is pretty normal for people who move abroad.

I don't really have any safety net here. No friends. No family. No income. All I actually have is my husband. I feel greatly supported by him. And he always tries to understand how I feel (sometimes it's rather easy for him to understand, since he was an exchange student in Sweden for a year.) But from time, to time, I guess he has a harder time to understand what I'm going through.

Anyways, most of the time I enjoy living here. Everything is so different. Kind of exciting. Shizuoka isn't bad at all. It's so calm here. I like calm. Although I do think that Tokyo is a fantastic city. But it is way too lively, way too stressful. So for me, visiting Tokyo every now and then is totally fine. It does get a tad bit boring here from time to time. But that's alright :)

Hope all of you've had a wonderful summer.
