About Me

My name is Josie! I come from England but right now I'm living in Japan, and I don't want to ever go home. That's how much I love it here. It's a wonderful place and hopefully I can share some of that wonderfulness (is that a word) with some of you people here on swap-bot.

I divide my time between teaching English to Japanese kids (I love my job, even though some of my kids are a pain, most of them make me happy to go into work every day), and being a huge fan-girl of a lot of Japanese entertainment (see my favourite music for hints!). I spend a lot of time travelling around the country for events and concerts as often as I can.

I collect clearfiles (they're mostly a Japanese thing, so if anyone in Japan wants to do a swap, please let me know!!), Johnnys shop photos, shark and giraffe plushies, and I also love receiving letters, I love it when people tell me about their day, even if they did nothing special.

Other favourite things:

ANIMALS: Giraffes, turtles, sharks, cats, chihuahuas, elephants, sheep.

CHARACTERS: Sentimental Circus, Monokuro Boo, Pokemon, Nameko.

ACCESSORIES: socks (we wear them a lot in Japan!), bowties, t-shirts.

FOOD: chocolate, hamburgers, strawberries (all of these include non-edible items too!!)

STATIONARY: notebooks, pens, post-it notes, cute paper clips, clearfiles.

RANDOM: things from England (I miss seeing English things around!) the colours black, pink and lime green, leopard print (especially if it's pink!), polka-dots, anything with stars or hearts or skulls~

I also like to send things to my family as surprises, so if you see anything they would like, it;d be awesome to include them too. My mum loves owls and butterflies, my dad loves football (soccer, lol), and my brother loves crabs~

Favorite Music

My passion is J-Pop, as mentioned in my 'about me' these groups and the guys in these groups are a huge part of my life and what makes me happy. If you don't know who these groups are, I encourage you to check them out. Perhaps they can make you as happy as they make me.

NEWS/Tegomass (esp. Tegoshi Yuya), KAT-TUN (esp. Ueda Tatsuya), Sexy Zone (esp. Nakajima Kento), NYC (esp. Nakayama Yuma), Hey!Say!JUMP (esp. Okamoto Keito), Kanjani8 (esp. Yokoyama Yuu), SHU-I (esp. Hyungjun)

Favorite Movies

Scream, Son of Rambow, The Truman Show, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Titanic, Super 8, Moonlight Jellyfish, Seaside Motel.

I was going through some old swaps and noticed that you hadn't yet rated me for the January Song of the Month swap yet. Let me know if you want me to resend the email, all of my other partners received it. Thanks.
