I had originally began blogging about my new life in Japan in 2009 as I thought my friends back home in England actually cared about me, and that they'd be dying helplessly without me so would read my Blog every day and cry that they'd miss me, but the frighteningly more addictive, and, I suppose, the easier to use and access F***book (I realise I censored that word in the worst possible way) took its place.
So this Blog, which I began again at dear Blogger, is more for me, for my benefit. A place where I can freely write in the hope that my English doesn't disintegrate completely, due to the large lack of it now I'm here, as well as where I can put up my non-artisticly-taken photos.
But, if anyone happens to find anything of interest here then...that's great :)
This means that the content of this blog is unrestricted. Everyone has different likes and preferences, and mine could be, to the "average person", rather different to you, and you, and you. You might even find my sense of humour offensive, or maybe you think I don't have one.
All in all, if it doesn't interest you, you can simply leave. I meant that in the nicest way possible, as catty as that sounds. This also goes for rants that I make which people may disagree with, though I'm interested and open to other opinions so feel free to comment.
I end this simple explanation with : don't like it? Don't read it. :D
"Fish'n'what...?!"The meaning behind the bizarre name of this site? Well, to break it down; fish'n'chips = Traditional British food. Soysauce (shouyuu) = main ingredient for most Japanese dishes. Mix them up together, and you get - me. If you extend your imagination a little. Also, soysauce happens to go very well with fish'n'chips. Credits go to my Japanese mother who has lived in England for over 20 years for introducing it to me. I highly recommend it though ;)
"Lard Monster?"A friend jokingly called me it when I said I was too heavy to stand on a small stool or something, if I remember correctly. She meant it sarcastically, as although I'm not skinny I'm not fat, and I liked the sound of it for some reason. I bizarrely found it rather cute, and thought it resembled me well as I adore eating and food.
Oh, and I am pretty heavy. I blame my height and big bones, mostly, and the fact that I'm not exactly skinny anyway.
