Just Keeping Busy

12:50 AM

I guess in any country, the foreign community is always unstable.

People come and go depending on personal life and work.

Tonight I said goodbye to my best friend in Japan.

She's moving back to Singapore and I really can't believe I won't see her again.

Of course we can visit, but my partner in crime and fashion is gone.....


Well, she did leave me with lots of goodies, so maybe I can make a happier post tomorrow!

In order to make this post useful, I'd like to recommend Yookoso for Japanese learning.

You can sign up for grammar and vocab points to be emailed to you once a day.

It's easy to adjust to your level and not too overwhelming.

I think it's a great tool for someone studying Japanese.

I've only been using it for a week and sometimes it's hard to keep up with, but I like it.

Let me know if you use it and like it!

I just don't know when I'll see them again but I also know, this is most likely, the last time ever that so many of us will be able to meet in one place!
