moshetei asked: Hello! I really love reading your blog!! I'm currently living in Japan and am in a relationship with this Japanese guy, and I guess I had a question about your cross- cultural relationship. My boyfriend is the coolest, but recently, he's been more eager about studying English, and often interrupts our conversations to ask me what a particular thing I said means and to explain it to him... Have you ever had a problem with this? I explained it bugs me but if we move to America he needs English. D:
I don`t really consider it a problem when Daisuke does it because I do it to him too in Japanese all of them time and as long as it`s relevant to the conversation, it doesn`t bug me because I know how helpful it is for him and his learning. I guess it depends on how your boyfriend does it. If you`re speaking to him in English and he doesn`t understand maybe it`s helpful for him to stop you then and there for the conversation to continue because what annoys me more is when I`m talking talking talking and in the end Daisuke is like ??? after he was nodding is head and responding like he knew what was up.
Maybe explain how it makes you feel and what you would prefer him to do but from what I`ve experienced, it doesn`t bother me that much.
Anonymous asked: Omg I'm obsessed with Japan. Do you have any pictures of what your home looks like and views of outside/city life? Sorry if that's creepy, I don't mean to be. Japanese life just fascinates me!
I made a tour video of our apartment when we first moved in 6 months ago - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtNsuedq2AY
I should do an updated video soon….
Ummmm, I post pictures sometimes when I got out. You can find them throughout my blog or whenever I post them but it`s not something I consistently do.
There are all kinds of Japan blogs out there if you check the different tags that may give you what you`re looking for.
