I came to Japan after graduating with a social science degree and an anxious sense of "what do I do with my life?". Somehow I'm still here and haven't yet figured it out. This blog ranges from my experiences on the JET program, where I was placed in Ibaraki prefecture in 2013, to where I currently am: a salarywoman in Tokyo. This blog is a collection of my embarrassing misadventures and is in the tone of "the voice in your head" in the key of "a whiny sarcastic British person".
