I just found out the guy I was interested in had a girlfriend and they have a really good relationship. It was sad and shocking, but at the same time I was happy to know he is happy now. I don't know why...And the truth told me I had to move on.

It never stops raining in Tokyo this week. Probably it is raining more than Seattle. I used not to dislike rain, but now I can't stand it. I can't wait to see a sunshine!

Valentine's Day [Feb. 11th, 2006|10:26 pm]

I went to buy some chocolates for Valentine's Day, but the space for Valentine’s event in a department store was just crazily filled with all women spending $20, $40 and sometimes over $100. There were too many kinds of chocolate (maybe more than 30 brands from France, Germany, and Swiss etc) and I became very indecisive. After all I came back empty-handed. I want to be receiver on Valentine’s Day, not giver. Japanese Valentines should follow American Valentine’s custom.

Human Dog? [Feb. 10th, 2006|05:05 pm]

I had a complete medical checkup called 人間ドック in Japanese for the first time in my whole life. Direct translation of 人間ドック would be“Human Dog”in English. Isn’t that strange, is it? Anyway, I felt I needed to do that since I am getting 30s this year.(I don’t say old) In one of the processes of this checkup, I had to drink a white slimy thing to check my stomach which made me feel so bad. No food, no drink for a whold day and such a weird drink came for the first thing I had today at 2:00 p.m.

Good thing was I finished the checkup at 3:30 and didn’t need to go back to work. I had a late lunch and chocolate cake with my colleague. I am now in an English school where I take lessons every Sundays and have a chat with a friendly French teacher.

Happy Friday [Jan. 27th, 2006|11:45 pm]

After finishing my work at 10pm, I hurried over to my friend’s birthday party last night. When I got to a restaurant, they already finished taking the last order for food and I could only order drinks which was okay for me. Even though I haven’t eaten anything yet, I wasn’t hungry. I guess I’ve gotten no appetite after passing certain time. A great thing at the party was to be able to meet with the birthday girl and her cute friend. I wish I have another chance to meet him again!

And after coming back home, I went straight to the bed. I happily had a sweet dream and it was unexpectedly in English. It was probably because Michael was in my dream. I don’t exactly remember the dream. As far as I can recall, it was my last day in Seattle. After waking up, it took me a while to realize whether I had a dream or not. It was a happy dream, so I forced myself to dream the same, I couldn’t.

I finally got “Kotatsu” tonight. (Kotatsu is a small table with an electric heater underneath and covered by a quilt.) Yeah! I waited for it so long and now I have it. I am so happy to be able to get rid of a carton box which was my dinner table for the last three month in my new apartment in Tokyo.

Home Sweet Home [Jan. 9th, 2006|03:41 pm]

I spent two days off extremely relaxed at home, watching Friends DVD, doing piled laundry, and cooking Miso noodle stew which warms me well. I caught a bad cold, so I had to get over it.

It is sometimes good to be home and be lazy…

I had a final interview in a medical company and got hired as an international event coordinator. I hoped to get a job within this year, so it should be great news. But I am not 100% happy about it because the boss in the department told me that there was a woman who was really bossy and demanding and she would be my mentor. Isn’t that horrible? He continued that if I have some troubles with her, just let him know. I haven’t started working yet, but I already got warning and that made me worried very much. That’s not absolutely a good sign.

I might be thinking too much before working. But from my experience, a relationship with coworkers is a key to continue the job. My mom and my friend, “Hugecatbits” told me the same thing that it is too early to judge and I haven’t even tried yet. At least, I should try and see how it goes. That’s right!!!

By the way, it snowed hard in my hometown, Osaka. Too cold!!!

Snow??? [Dec. 2nd, 2005|10:53 pm]

I can’t believe that it snowed in Seattle. Really? Did it really snow??? I missed making footprint in the snow and a snowman. Tokyo is really warm and I guess Seattle is much colder than Tokyo which I didn’t realize while I was there.

Phew. I just finished two applications and sent them to each company. My job hunting is going well so far, but I just hate waiting for phone calls from a company for interviews. I’d like to do part-time job just until I find a permanent job, but the problem is that I don’t know when I have an interview and have to be available anytime.

Surprising and happy email [Nov. 28th, 2005|10:41 pm]

I met Chika and Ryoko whom I met in Seattle three years ago. I had lost their contacts for a long time, but our neutral friend, Tom, held us together last night. I don’t have a lot of friends in Tokyo and I was feeling a little bit lonely last week. And then he suddenly emailed me just saying “How are you?” Can he read my mind?

Job Job Job [Nov. 21st, 2005|05:43 pm]

I am having a difficult time finding a job. I had an interview and offer last week, but even though they paid OK, I didn’t see the job interested, so after all I turned down the offer. This time I am so interested in the job duties, supporting international students from all over the world and advising Japanese students who want to study abroad in a Japanese university but I can’t live by the salary. Well...I have to think which I want to prioritize either money or career. I want BOTH!!!
