Blog Update #3: Ignoct Part 2 (Where Is it?)

Hello everyone! Whew. I know I know. I am so behind right now. Truthfully, I have the next post almost ready to go save for some editing I wanted to do. Due to the serious nature of the events that occurred last weekend, I took the posts down from auto-upload. I am finally up to giving them the final once-over and posting them.

Part 2 of the Ignoct series will be up on Tuesday! I will be going to the store tomorrow in hopes of procuring a few more doujin for future giveaways. If you’ve already won, you are free to enter again should something catch your eye! The winner has been contacted, but due to the small number of entries, I have also awarded a doujin to the first poster and the 3rd commenter. Please let me know if you didn’t get an e-mail!

I have a few other backlogged posts that I will also be putting up throughout the week that were due to update last week. And I’m going to work on some more to put in the backlog as well since, well, I didn’t write at all this week. Ha. Ha. Haaa….yeah.

Thank you for your patience and continued support! (Wow, I’m not being a total bitch for once. Who knew I had it in me?)

Edit: HAHAHAHAHA DID I SAY TUESDAY? I meant Thursday because I’m trash. \o/

Blog Update #2: Changing Direction

me realizing i wanted to shift gears on this blog

I’ll be completely honest. When I first had the idea to start this blog and sat down to do it a month ago, I had envisioned being one of those professional types who had a focus. Ha. Ha. Haaa. Right, with my personality? I don’t know who I was trying to fool. I dabble in too many different areas of life to be happy in dedicating all of my time and energy into one subject. This is why I will never be famous. But at least I have a great ass.

A lot of things have changed since the inception of this blog, many of which you don’t need to know. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. (JK. Pay attention to me plz.) But there is one major change everyone should be aware of.

Blog Update #1: Let’s Get This Party Started!

It’s been a long time coming, but I finally decided to start a blog. I know, it may seem crazy. It’s not like everyone has a blog these days or anything, and every foreigner who moves to Japan starts a blog to show their travels, their adventures, and how crazy Japanese people are. I want to start off by saying that my blog is generally Tokyo-specific. 

I decided to start my blog because there are so many informative blogs out there about moving abroad (Japan included), tips & tricks of the trade, and living in a foreign country without being heavily medicated. But one thing I felt that was lacking when I was preparing for my own move was the lack of reality. It was all about a mythical land of fairies or overly harsh. I didn’t know if I was going to sink or swim. I didn’t expect to float down a lazy river.

I’ve always considered myself a pretty creative person if not smart, beautiful, and funny. So writing about something that is non-fiction is a “foreign” concept to me. Really, the subject matter just lends itself to too many dad jokes and puns.

To be honest, Japan has given me a freedom that I’ve never experienced before. But I’m not sure if that’s specific to living in another country or the fact I predicted the future elections in my dreams and decided to save myself before it was too late.

I’ve had friends ask me back home “how do I move to Japan?” “what’s it like?” “can you send me anime goods?” My answers are: google, too hot in summer, and buy it yourself off the internet machine.

But it got me thinking about how many other people want to move and just don’t know how to take the first step. Sure there are the blogs, but we all know the types- people who have been here too long and think they know everything, people who just moved here and think they know everything, people who know they know nothing and still publish shit anyways (hey it’s me!) It can be a lot to take in.

I’m not here to pat you on the back or crash your dreams into a brick wall so that they erupt in flames and simmer down into tiny ashes of depression. I am here to keep it real. The goal of this blog is to help you gain an understanding of the entire process which I hope will help you.And there a lot of us living here with stories, experiences, and advice to share! I hope that might posts will accurately reflect the feelings of the average gaijin living here.
