In my usual lazy blogger fashion, I am just now getting to some kind of end of the year/new year/what a year post. I'm not one who remembers things easily. In fact, I probably havent thought about what's happened to me this year at all. But, now I'll explore my blog archives and hopefully dig up some memories before Motto comes over to play with Raspberry-chan.
Why tagged me in the Ten Things You Did In 2008 That You're Happy About Or Proud Of tag-a-thon. Usually I don't go for things with such horribly long names and that promote such positive feelings, but we'll see if I can't muck it up a bit.
10} Happy I visited new cities, like Tokyo, Fukuoka, Kokura, Nagoya, Kyoto, Seattle, L.A., Portland and Vancouver. No matter how lame, scary, similar, and expensive some of them may have been.
9} Proud I mastered the squatter.
8} Happy I made it to my brother's wedding last summer.
7} Happy I quit smoking.
6} Proud I learned a bit of cooking.
5} Proud I found a new job in Japan, after the company I came here to work for went bankrupt.
4} Happy I quit that shit job to find an even better one in the same city.
3} Proud after coming to Japan with only "arigatou" under my belt, I learned how to read/write/speak/understand a chunk of Nihongo.
2} Happy I met Motto.
1} Happy I finally got a bunny!!
