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~
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.
