Alright, let’s give this a whirl, shall we? My name is Tanie. I am a 26 year old woman living in Japan. I’ve been here for roughly five years altogether with a little back and forth between here and the states.
I’m from the states, originally. I grew up in the Midwest with my family. I could go into the sob story of the bullying and how I struggled, but where is the originality in that, right? Everyone has a past and the thing is… this blog isn’t about that. This blog isn’t about my sad past. This blog is going to be about my happy life.
I tried to blog before but I didn’t put enough effort into it. I started out way too strong and couldn’t keep up with what I planned. I became overwhelmed and fizzled out quickly. I’m going to take my time and do it right this time. At least, that’s the goal.
I think one of the reasons that I couldn’t keep up with it is that I was trying to keep it too… categorized, you know? This time, I’m being general and I will post whatever I feel like posting. It could be stories of things that happened to me that day, something that I did, or maybe a recipe I like. I don’t know. You don’t know. Let’s do this together and figure out what unravels.
I look forward to taking this journey together.
