Last night in my apartment in Japan!! Spending it sneaking bags of trash into other buildings’s dumpsters and researching the anxiety disorder I think I have.

I’m gonna bring this back if it’s the last thing I do


Found my new go-to excuse for canceling plans.

Visited a waterfall today and watched a grown man try to convince a tiny dog to swim near it. #Isahaya #Nagasaki #Japan

Last year I was having a really hard time with my supervisor, who was (and still is!) a passive aggressive dick. My friend Hot Judo Sensei saw how unhappy I was and invited me to come to judo practice, and it ended up being so much fun that I started going regularly. The students were hilarious, the official coach was super nice, and Hot Judo Sensei was hot. It’s been a surprisingly fun year of bruises and chipped manicures and broken toes. I went to practices and tournaments, got to know students’ parents, and even went to the team welcome party (and the ADORABLE bowling nijikai).

This weekend will be my last days with my judo kids. I’m biased, but the judo club is the best club full of the best kids. They’re cute and weird and funny and I’m going to miss them so much. I wish I had the Japanese skills to explain how much spending time with them has meant to me.

I mean, I’ll say it in English but it’ll be hard for them to hear me through all the tears.
