Loss of My Mom: 2 Months On

Today is the 2nd month since my mom passed away. It has been a lot harder than I thought it would be. I’m not entirely sure what I expected, to be honest.

Picture of Mom and I

Since I have been going through so many photos of Mom, I decided to add a few here in the image gallery. Please enjoy them if you wish.

Japanese Diary

I have to keep a diary for Japanese so I figure I might as well post my posts on here as well… so start to expect that!


In an incredible evil change of heart, he posted about me. So I suppose I’ll link to that to be nice. However, I am sorry he hates me and my writing.


Michael hates my blog. It’s so very very sad.

Ke$ha and LMFAO
