Quick update.

So much to blog about. It's so much harder to find the time when you're working and actually having a life lol. Quick update, started my second year at my school. So far, it's been alright. I work at a preschool now which is decent overall just stressful with planning.

My sister came to visit with her boyfriend and though it was tiring it was really fun. Need to post about that.

Also went to Okinawa with Lisa, and Okinawa's beaches are beautiful. They're the prettiest I've ever seen but overall Okinawa was okay. I preferred Miyazaki, but that could be because it was still a bit cold so there wasn't much we wanted to do in the weather.

Also, another friend from California visited with her boyfriend. That was fun, and they brought me things from America!

Also started the line out my other knee tattoo. I don't know how I sat through the other one in a full sitting I was dying with just the outline with this one.

Will be sure to update a weekend when I'm not busy or lazy!

Hey, March.

It's already March. Did anyone else feel these past couple months zoom by? I seriously can't believe it's already March. Two more weeks until I complete my first year at my school.

I am excited for my second year to start at my school but also nervous due to new classes and students. I'm also going to be starting at a preschool which I'm not too sure how I feel about it. I feel more neutral about it than anything.

Besides that, spring break is coming! My little sister and her boyfriend are coming to Japan to visit me. I cannot wait to see them and show them around. Also to just see my baby sister in general. I'm so excited for her because she is going to be traveling the first time some place far from California.

Also, me and Lisa are going on another trip, this time to the lovely Okinawa! I've been wanting to go for the longest time, since I studied abroad so I'm excited to finally get the chance. I've wanted to go even more so because one of my good friends is from there, he already gave me a list of his recommendations.

I'm going to be busy with work until I hit spring break, but it will be worth it.

Who really matters?

A blogger I follow, Rambling Rabbit, recently wrote a post about re-evaluating friendships and just people in your life, this couldn't have came at a more relevant time.

Sometimes we keep friendships because of the length of time we've been friends with this person and because of the memories. But when you're just holding onto just memories and no longer enjoy that person's company, it's time to let it go. Sometimes, there is more bad than good when you hold onto a friendship. Especially, if you put more into the friendship than the other person. 

I closed a chapter of my life, and I already can see a difference, a good one. I have decided to use this as a lesson: Only keep people around you who make you feel good about yourself, encourage/support you, and are there for you. Sounds pretty obvious, but you would be surprised what we put up with without really noticing until we take a step back from it all.

I only have a handful of people in my life, but they are people I can count on and help me live my live positively, and that's all that matters. They're the people who really matter.
