I want to be abnormal

i am terrified to be the cookie cutter American female. i don't want to get married, have kids, and forget who/what i was.

i feel that going back to what is so familiar, will only stunt my growth. there's soo much i want to see and do, and i'm gettin anxious about what should/will happen next.


halloween Nihon style...

Went out last night to celebrate an associates birthday. Started out the evening at a magnificent restaurant called Rigoletto, i loved everything, its an upscale hot spot in Roppongi Hills, located in the Mori Tower.

After dinner, we wandered in Roppongi, in the mood to dance. halloween, in my opinion, is the perfect time for people to go completely wild, and feel like their behavior will be excused.

anywho, i was dressed pretty darn cute, if i say so myself, and i realized that i do not like alot of attention. Men kept staring at me, often approaching me and i felt strangely uncomfortable. After dancing the night away, went to an amazing pizza parlour, and a group of older European men would not stop gawking at me. it got so bad we ended up moving tables just to avoid their wandering eyes. Well, they finished their early morning snack, and while walking out continued to stare, and one guy even winked at me. Now, i guess some women find this experience ejoyable, i felt totally violated. I had on a turtleneck, a skirt and black tights, so there was no skin exposed. it totally gave me the heeby jeeby's.

anywho all in all great fun!!!

who's bad...

i had my first real 'dealings' with the wanna be badazzes of the school. So i'm walking up the steps closest to my classes, which happens to be the hang out for all the misfits. Well i always walk up these stairs so no biggie for me.

Well one kid decides to be say hello like 100x's. Well i wasn't in the mood to fool with any of them, so i just keep walking. So, tired of being ignored he says, "kill you." I stop turn around to look, and continue to walk to class. my back was to them, so i don't know who was talking.

i tell one of the other English teachers, and continue with my day.

After lunch, i'm going to my next class, same hallway, same misfits. some one says hello again, being that i'd just eaten, and was in a better mood, i say hello, and continue to walk. then i hear, "kill you" so i turn around and ask, "are you sure, you want to do that?, Do you want to kill me? are you sure?"

i spotted the kid who said it, and walked down to where he was, stood directly in front of him, and continued to ask. "Are you sure want to kill me, do you want to kill me? are you sure?" By now the don't back down side of me is riled up. I continue to ask these same questions while looking directly at the boy. His comrades are hurriedly telling him no he didn't mean it, he's sure he doesn't want to..."

i turned back around, and walked up stairs. i'm pretty sure he pissed on himself. See kids will only do what you allow them to do. And bullies are usually cowards that have never been confronted. All i know is if i have to deal with foolishness again, Japan will be in for a rude awakening.

Let's get it!

Go big Blue!

So i know i've been slacking on the blogging, but things have slowed down . a bit. Every year all the junior high schools have field day. The school divides the students into 3 groups A-Bun-dan, B-bun-dan, and C-bundan (bun-dan means group/party). This year i was on the ABun team, go big blue!!!

They take this very seriously, and have lovingly named it The Kayalympics (my schools name is Kayada). Well due to rain, i missed the Kayalympics, but was informed today that my team gave me major shout-outs. They said, "We have a new American supporter, Porshe. She is strong, nice, and has a beautiful smile!!!"

That was the highlight of my day!!!! i <3 my school!!!! i feel sooo uber blessed

Let's get it
