A decade of me
Posted January 2, 2010on:
Got this idea from Sassymoo and Gaijinwife and probably countless others but I read theirs first!!
2000 – 3rd year high school student. was into anime and ddr and games and lots of “geeky” stuff. had an awesome time at disneyland in the summer. got back with my ex in the fall.
2001 – 4th year high school student. broke up with ex again, and had rebound summer of sin then went to university in boston where met a ton of fun chaps and started majoring in psych.
2002 – took my first japanese class at university. got back together with ex. spent lots of time with my uni friends.
2003 – broke up with ex again – very bad… wanted to get out of the country so chose to attend study abroad program in japan from the fall. go to japan and have an awesome time making lots of friends both japanese and foreign
2004 – still in japan. ex came to visit and we got back together but then he cut things off when he went back to america so i got together with a guy names keisuke but when i refused to “seal the deal” he broke up with me and never called me back again. got really home sick for america and returned about 3 weeks earlier than i was supposed to. worked at summer camp for japanese students in america. missed japan after a couple months of being back. got back together with ex at the end of summer.
2005 – finished up university. applied for jet program.
2006 – tried to look for a job while waiting for JET results and ended up working as a receptionist for a university. got accepted as an ALT to kobe. visited london in the summer and then broke up with ex for good and moved to kobe. met ryohei october 2006 and started dating a week later.
2007 – applied for opening cir position in kobe. ryohei moved to tokyo for his job in april and we stayed together despite the long distance for the rest of the year. moved to west kobe after receiving the cir position. was very cute and skinny and did a lot of partying with jet friends/single friends and pretty much drank more than i had in years.
2008 – ryohei moves to kobe in jan. we get married in late feb. which didn’t really put a lot of thought into. met a bunch of my now foreign wive friends. started to really want a baby. continued being bored at my job since there was little to no work for me. got pregnant with sakura in october.
2009 – visited america with ryohei for first time in march. finished up cir job in august and moved to niigata with inlaws which was awful. moved to nagaoka (away from inlaws) about a month before sakura was born. had traumatic birth experience and struggled with the first couple months of motherhood. hated where i lived and the lonliness…
2010 – praying that in a couple months we will not be in niigata anymore and if i have my way i will never be coming back (to live) again. also need to lose at least 30kg of baby weight and not exercise/eating crap weight but expecting that to take more than a year…
