I think I am extrovert. On the other hand, my husband @jk describes himself extroverted introvert. I wonder most IT people are like that..? 私は外向的だと思います。一方で夫は自分のことを外向的な内向的だと表現してます。ITやってる人はほとんどそうなのかな…。
I learnt these words long time ago but I still struggle to remember so hopefully writing them here helps me memorise them.
I'm enjoying living in a country where the culture is quite different to my own. It feels good to be learning and adapting all the time. I'm drawn to #Buddhism and try to practice #meditation every day. After years of work, I've returned to being a student and I'm attempting to learn a second language. I watch too many movies, and recently started to try and learn how to play #Go. I'm a big fan of spicy Asian food, and I'm currently experimenting with intermittent #fasting.

back to square one 振出しに戻る
I took my 3.5-month-old daughter to baby clinic to weigh her to find that she had not gained weight as much. My confidence in breastfeeding has been lost again.. I am back to square one.
This explains why my girl was almost always grumpy -she was simply hungry!

You know those scenes in TV shows and movies where a deranged and clearly dangerous psychopath is detained in a straightjacket, in a padded cell and the direction\cinematography focuses on jolty head movements to emphasise the instability of the strapped up character?
That same effect occurs perpetually with a swaddled baby and a video monitor.. plus occasional ring-esque moments where in absolute silence she awakes and stares directly at you..
Extreme weather 異常気象（いじょうきしょう）
A torrential rain and a record-breaking heat wave in Japan, an unusually hot summer in UK, and now a heavy rain in India.. extreme weather all over the world😭
I am seriously concerned with the future of Earth..
a pain relief patch 湿布（しっぷ）
I have been using a pain relief patch for my tendonitis on my left wrist.
It seems that in the UK a pain relief patch is not common so I had to ask my mum to send some over from Japan. My doctor told me to rest the wrist well but that is impossible for a mother-of-three-month-old-daughter.. 😅
We bought a Global whetstone because some of our knives are so dull.
I've never used a whetstone and have only seen my mum and uncle using it back home. It feels like I have stepped up to the next level😜
Iced decaf soy latte at Starbucks + content daughter after a massive poo explosion = victory
My very first Mastodon toot. Unlike Twitter where I used to tweet things randomly, I would like to have a theme or two on Mastodon and I am still thinking.. at the moment, I am considering using it to brush up my English as I have been feeling that my English vocab has been noticeably decreased over the past few years. Input is important, but I definitely need more output..
