Tokyo, here I come!!

Hi there,

In January, I am going to Tokyo! Yes, finally!

When I heard I was going to Japan, I had planned to first stay a week in Tokyo before going to Sendai, the city I currently life in. But when I had actually booked my flight and such, I became afraid and chose to go straight to Sendai instead.

Though I don't necessarily regret going straight to Sendai, I do regret not being able to experience Tokyo. But I will soon! The hostel had been booked and the night-bus to Tokyo is booked as well! All I have to do now is plan where I wanna go, including Tokyo Disneyland, and I'm completely set for my mini vacation. I really want to see Shinjuku and Harajuku so there is no change I'm not going there. My hostel is near Akihabara and the Tokyo sky tree, so those are on my list as well.

Before I'm going back to The Netherlands I'm going to spend an other few days in Tokyo, so I'll still have time to see a lot more, and I'm pretty sure this isn't going to be the last time I'm in Japan, so I don't want to rush everything in one go, but take enough time to carve it all into my memory.

Booking everything took a great deal of energy out of me but I'm really glad I did it: I feel so much better now!
Have you had that as well? Where you're really afraid to do something, but once you've actually done it you feel so much more powerful and happy?

I'm going to share all my pictures and stories of my visit in Tokyo with you, so please look forward to them!

Life in Japan

Hello there again.

Tonight I felt like sharing a bit about my life in Japan with you. I thought you might be interested in it, so here goes.

I've been living in Japan since the end of August, 2012. In order to graduate from my current university, I need to attend a university or language school in the country of the language of my course, which for me means I got to go to Japan. Sadly, I was at first told I wasn't able to go to the university and only after I decided on which language school I wanted to go to the teacher told me I had actually been able to go to a university after all. But by then I had already settled on going to a language school. Some may call me crazy, but it has its advantages.

Think, plan and action!

Hello there,

While trying to change I've been over thinking a lot of things. Yes, again. Because the most important things for me now, are trying to figure out exactly what I want to change about myself and my surrounding. Because just starting something without a goal is about as pointless as starting to make a pie without a recipe. Of course you'll be able to make something, but there is no guaranteeing it will actually be anything good. And because this is a huge deal, trying to go forward without a plan is not something I plan on doing.

So I'm planning a lot of things. I haven't thought it all out yet but I'm working my hardest on trying to feel good about what I'm doing and going to do.
