Hello everyone! Sorry about the last sad entries one after another! :)
But I am doing better than I was, being here in Japan. It’s still very tough but I feel being away from the environment that I’m used to is somewhat doing good to me, for now.
  But anyways, since I am here, I’m gonna share my life in Japan with you! This week, I’m not let out because of the famous Japanese craze about the flu but I am enjoying staying home or going to places with not many people :) So come back to read about my country side Japan staying home stories, and hopefully soon, I can actually go out and tell you about my favorite places arounhere!
