Alright, I try to keep this as short as possible.
I'm a 30 years young German woman who's working as an English teacher in Japan. I moved to Japan 3 years ago and in a few days I'll go into my 4th year here.
My hobbies are travelling, photography, studying Japanese, blogging and watching dramas (mainly jdramas). I also used to be a huge fan of anime and manga, but recently I don't care so much about it anymore (but as I've been a fan for way over 10 years, I've seen/read a lot and thus know a lot ). I also like Johnnys, mainly Arashi and ... Ikuta Toma who I also met live last year and will meet again next month twice
Here's a list of all animes/jdramas/jmovies I've watched so far (so that list needs to be updated like WOAH!! ) and here's a list of all jdramas with pictures and rating (also needs to be updated ...).
Recently my journal is mainly about my life in Japan. The majority of entries is about me travelling Japan with TONS of photos. If you have a slow connection, then my journal is probably not very interesting for you.
I'm ranting every now and then about life, work, food and culture in Japan. I sometimes post about my Japanese studies (self study - just passed N2 last year, working towards my final goal: JLPT N1 ).
Before I moved to Japan (2004-2007) I mainly posted graphics (icons, banners, screencaps etc.) and also reviews of various animes, jdramas etc. If you're interested, you can still find all of that in my journal, but don't expect me to post anything like that in the near future. I just don't have enough time.
In order to find out if my journal would be interesting at all, I suggest you have a look at my JOURNAL INDEX
I also created a "Japan travel index" and a "Japanese castle index" recently for anybody who's interested!~
Recent travel photos:
I'm especially looking for other people who also live in Japan or who have the same interests, but ANYBODY is welcome really!
Just please note one thing (also written here): I'm not immediately adding back people. If you look at my profile page you probably will figure out quite quickly why it's impossible for me to add back anybody who's adding me.
I swear I'd love to add all those people, but I feel like a bad friend if I never read their journals or comment!!! Instead I only add back a few people that I have contact with often (usually through comments in my journal).
Thus far it worked quite well and I love all of my friends, even those who are fine with just being my readers (or lookers? *lol*)
I'm very sorry about being so bitchy about this, but I hope you understand.
Still I'm looking forward to meet and get to know new people from all over the world!!
The good news is that my journal is 99% public!
I also have a Japanese Livejournal where I sometimes write in Japanese in order to practice: densha_onna
If you're annoyed by all these small graphics, then it's probably not a good idea to add me as I use them in every single entry!!
Thanks for reading!~
