I've always thought I'll be a mum by this age. Instead, I am applying for a new job in Tokyo and working at a bar in Yokohama. You never know what life can bring. I've decided to take responsibility for my own happiness. 人生は何が起こるか分からない、だからこそ自分の幸せは自分で責任をもつこと、と決めた。
I have been feeling sick and I had no energy. Today, well, technically yesterday, I wanted to quit the job at the bar because drinking is starting to affect my health.
Two customers came to see me and they wanted to drink with me last night. That made a huge difference and as I am going home on the last train, I think to myself, life is not too bad.
I used to hate my birthday because I had no friends at school. I was always bullied at school because I was "different". Being different in Japan is considered to be bad. Now, being an adult and going through a lot for my age, I can say I love who I am. I know I need to be fit and have things I need to work at but I just love being me.
