Oh man, fingers crossed, right now I am at the Robot Restaurant in Tokyo trying not to have a seizure
My Japan trip should be just about coming to an end and even though that’s literally two+ weeks away as I am writing this, I’m sad just thinking about it!
Japan has been a part of life in various forms since I was about 13. What started with a dubbed anime I caught on Cartoon Network turned into an incredible relationship with a country and a community that will forever be a part of me.
More than *cough*ten*cough, I lived in Japan (which is where I met Best Friend: Partner in Crime!). Fresh out of college it was my first, real adulting experience.
I had a full time (and then some) job teaching English to students. And I had my very own apartment. Sure it was a one room apartment but as a burgeoning adult that was more than enough for me to handle.
Living abroad when you’re new to adulting is a great way to get a crash course because you don’t have any of the normal support systems like family, friends or, oh yeah, language. It really forces you to take charge of your life and force me it did.
So today, I’d like to share an adulting skill I learned in Japan. I would categorize this as Adulting 2.0 since it is a little more high level. But once you get going, you’ll find it’s actually pretty easy.
