For those who don’t know me, my name is Bryar. I’m a Kiwi (a New Zealander – not the bird or the fruit) born in Auckland on the second of the second 1997. From March ’13 to February ’14 when I was 16 years old, I spent a year living the life of a Japanese teen in central Tokyo, Japan.
I originally started this blog in order to keep my friends and family in New Zealand up-to-date with my life and adventures while on my student exchange. Within you’ll find posts from the months leading up to my exchange, stories and tales from my roller coaster of a year, and some reflections once I returned to Kiwi-land. Alas, this blog was then abandoned for a couple of years post-Japan as I settled back into NZ life and focused on finishing high school.
But now, the revival has begun.
(How dramatic was that.)
A bit about me as of January 2016…
I’m a tiny (enormous) bit of a geek in some (lots of) ways. My habits and hobbies include reading, writing, gaming and 3D modelling. I am still shamelessly just as much of an otaku as I was before my exchange, and enjoy reading manga and watching Japanese dramas in my spare time. Obviously I’m also a teenager, so I love eating, sleeping in late, taking long showers and hanging out with my friends! I also listen to a range of music from Kpop to Chillstep and most things in-between. Feel free to engage me in a rave about any of my, or your, favourite things, or if you’re just curious to know more then flick me a message! I don’t bite, much :)
As for the blog I’ll be doing my best to keep it updated with all the wondrous adventures in my oh-so-interesting life, so please keep an eye out for updates! If you’d like to be notified about new posts then the “Click to Follow ♥” button will put you on the mailing list.
Please take care of me from now on as well! ^^
