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".

Novel Metropolis

Tokyo is the kind of city that stimulates every sense, and I find inspiration in it?s glittering high-rises, in the good smells wafting out of the little ramen and yakitori joints lining back alleys, and in the rumble of trains weaving their way between towering structures, not to mention the colorful people who turn the streets into their personal runway. So join me in my novel metropolis as, under Tokyo?s bright lights, I work toward my dream of becoming a published author. ???????(Wish me luck!)
