Am boring Mary indeed. Have not been doing much lately at all. Mum's cross stitch arrived the other day, so I have been working on that mostly. Am still on page one, but at least it's on the move.
Starting another school on Friday. Also have the boy coming up for a visit. Have started reading a new book and have renewed my love for libraries. In particular, Wallsend library. Is very cool.
Went to a Rotary do on Saturday and met lots of the Inbound students (ie foreign students in Oz). Met the 2 Japanese girls and they seem really nice. Unfortunately I had to go to work, so I didn't get much of a chance to chat.
Mum also dobbed me in. One of the guys we know has taken charge of Japan but he knows nothing about it, so I have been asked to be the "unofficial helper". I'm going to teach him a bit of Japanese, and I may need to go to the airport to meet new Inbounds. I don't mind though. I remember what it was like arriving in Japan, and even though I had learnt the language, I was still really grateful that my first host sister spoke English. So am looking forward to that.
Have been having interesting dreams lately. Not sure what's going on with me!
Why do women have such huge body image issues? Who decides what is beautiful? And if it's not us, why do we care what they think? Why do we let ourselves be defined like that? And why am I getting so worked up about this? I usually have a fairly positive self image so I don't know why this is coming up now. And it's only one particular thing. It's really not all that important in the scheme of things. And I'm the only one who seems to have a problem with it.
Wow, that rant seemed to come out of nowhere!
Anyways, I should get going. Love you all
