There is nothing more self absorbed than a blog about blogging, but too bad, that is what I am about to do.
Last week, we celebrated our one year anniversary of living in Japan.
I volunteered during the day and Brant worked. In the afternoon, we played tennis and made bacon egg and cheese sandwiches went to see the Great Gatsby. Brant had no idea it was our anniversary. I was a great day.
And since I started this about a year ago, our fun day reminded me that I have neglected this tumblr. Elsewhere, I’m working on long pieces about Japan, but here where I thought it would be so fun to share quick funny stories about little adventures in Japan, or making big embarrassing mistakes (both happen frequently), I have a hard time finding the motivation for it. Part of that I think is how I keep learning new things all the time, so mistakes I made two weeks ago seem ridiculous, and at the same time little triumphs with the language or relationships with my neighbors seem trivial.
Today I learned dry cleaning words when I brought my kimono to the cleaners, I bought my first octopus, which I just chopped up, and it rained which is good for our little garden.
