Just an update of my life here in Japan

Hello everyone,

First of all thanks for all you cool, sweet, and lovely comments. If I wouldn't get those comments, I don't think that I would still be writing this Blog, because I just need some feedback! So people who don't know how to do that. Just click the Comment button!

Okay, so you guys want to know how I am doing here? I have to say that I am doing pretty well, and I am enjoying my life for 80%(that's way more than I expected). I am getting used to the weather, county, people, food. I have a full-time job ( even though it is pretty hard so now and then, but a great experience in life), I am happy with my wife, and feel that we are growing to each other more and more. I am starting to find some friends in here, and also my Japanese speaking ability is going up little by little.

Of course there are bad things as well, for example I miss peanut butter, being able to communicate with everybody, watching Dutch TV ( believe me, most of it is better than Japanese TV), my family, and relaxing more.

But what can I say, I am only 21, moved to Japan, am one of the Youngest teachers in Japan, becoming trilingual, and getting life experience. So the question is where will I be in 10 years from now, while life is going so fast already. Of course I will get some heavy falls in life, because life is like a rollercoaster.

I hope to keep enjoying my life in Japan, with my wife, that I can grow as a human, that I can mean something for the community, and become successful in something else than teaching.

Thanks you guys.

Very cute pic of you and Mayu-chan! It seems that you are experiencing a very good time in Japan. It's so nice to read how you are enjoying your life with Mayu-chan.

I hope you find a new job in the field you are interested in soon, too.

Take care, Dave!

P.S. I think you can find peanut butter in Japan, too. Look around in a jam section at a supermarket.
