Hello again!! (^▽^)/

On my last journal I talked about me moving to another country. I'm happy to announce I will be living in Tokyo starting from March 26, 2015!! ✧*。٩(ˊᗜˋ*)و✧*

My boyfriend and I applied for a student visa, so we will be studying Japanese for a whole year while living in our own apartment in Tokyo. Our student visa can be extended to two years, plus our plans include trying to search for a job and settle there, so we really don't know how long we will stay (or if we will ever return).

As you can figure, I'm excited as hell!! Here go all my life savings (lol)! My goal is to learn the language while continue working as a freelance illustrator, and (on a second term) try to find a job there as illustrator. I know I'm perhaps dreaming too much. I know it won't be easy (sometimes I just feel like a huge weeaboo, you know...). But I want to try it! I thought about it a lot, and I already made my decision. I will give everything I have! And at the end, if I happen to 'fail', I will just return home with a BIG experience on my back. SO NO REGRETS! (ง •̀_•́)ง

This is also my bf's life dream (he's a huge lover of Japan and he has always dreamed about living there), so I have the great fortune of having the ideal companion for my journey. I would have felt really lost if I had to go alone... so I'm really grateful for his continued support! He's the best!! 。:゚(。ノω\。)゚・。

On a side note, I'll be attending Comiket Special 6. My table number is L42a on the first day (this is the Love Live! section). I will bring some acrylic straps, buttons/badges, postcards and prints. Just a small selection! (I can't bring too much stuff on my luggages!)


I just printed personal cards... do they look good?



Wish me luck~~! Fight! ٩( 'ω' )و

We are following the same steps, hehe ^^ Will you be at the Touhou.net booth in the Comiket? Ah, by the way, what school will you attend?
(Sorry for taking so long to answer!)

Nope unfortunately, my arrival date is April 4th so only Kef with some friends will be at the Touhou.net booth

The school I'll attend is Coto academy : cotoacademy.com/ Not the cheapest school but I love the teaching technique. As improving my conversational skill is my highest priority, each class/group has at most 8 students and conversation is the main focus of these courses.
For all the other cheaper schools, it's like learning in Middle/High School -> 20 people by class, the lessons are mainly focused on some textbooks lessons.

Good luck! I'm currently on exchange in Osaka and I'm loving it! 
Just a word of caution, you're going to want to spend a lot of your money in the first couple of weeks but you need to try your best to budget! Also, fruit is rather expensive here (or at least in comparison to USA) so get your fill of fruit before coming here if you like it haha
Safe a safe flight!

Thank you for the advice! Yeah I know, I must refrain to buy too much :_D It will be difficult!
Ahh, I've been told the same about how expensive the fruit is there! It's a pity! Thank you for the good wishes and good luck to you too ^^
