Another SIGH
Another SIGH!

My darling went to immigration office today, to change his VISA.
This is the point, not "renew", but "change".
So he is getting Spouse Visa changing from Working Visa.
Why? Because he is not employed! Simple.
And he is "Spoused".

So, changing Visa. Sounds like taking time, doesn't it? His visa apparently expired on 25th of this month. Why you didn't go earlier??? If I were you.....no, can't say that.

Anyway, so he did today, then what?
He kept emailing me to ask my family name, address or like the date of our marriage, something like that.
And plus, hey I need two documents from your office! right now? NOW? Jesus, I begged my peer to get those for me right away.

Finally he filled in the document which could have done at home in advance, and applied. Without the documents. Because they don't accept faxed form. Need original. Dumb! I called them and found out we could mail them later. Hoooo.

It took about 5 hours to get done. Poor Darling, spending 5 hours, stressed out himself. I could tell from his e-mails. All his fault, but even though. Could be much better.

Anyway so he did. Done.
I hope.


Should check this out more! Well maybe not big difference anyway.

Smart TK
Saturday morning, it was started by baby's crying as usual.
Since we got the baby, we could never really sleep in. (well, he does sometimes, but not me)
Babies are usually early birds. And they should be.
But today, it was a little different. He cried like a crazy, even after had my breast milk, he didn't stop crying.
PJ and I were worried if he had any terrible problems. Especially he has been getting sickness all the time since he has started to go nursery.
PJ talked to him like a joke, "hey, what's wrong buddy, you don't need to go to the daycare center today!"
Then what happend?
He stopped.....stopped crying.

It has been a month since he started to go there.
We thought he was getting used to it.
Actually he was, but at the same time, his stress was more and more, building like a mountain.
He understood what he said.
Smart, your are smart TK.

Rest of the day, he cried pretty often.
So maybe he cried in the morning just feeling something uncomfortable.
But I bet he did understand. He did not want to go, and cried.
I feel sorry for him, and also am proud of him being so patient.
He is the most patient person among three of us.
I feel like I am not taking care of him, he is taking care of us.

Guys Nature
Guys nature
Yeah, it was cool. It happened at Yoyogi park today, sun was already down, almost, but there were still many people including family. I was with my boy friend PJ, playing Frisbee as usual. I have been getting better recently. Yes, I think so. Anyway, so we were playing pretty hard, sweating. A boy, small kid, like maybe 3 or 4 years old, was walking towards me. His dad tried to stop him saying it was dangerous. He did not listen to his dad. (Already he knows how to show his identity to the parents.) I stopped throwing it for him. He suddenly reached my leg, and strolled it. My bare leg. He looked like so happy and satisfied. His dad was so ashamed, and apologized to me. Such a sweet happening. He would become successful womanizer.
After dinner we laughed remembering of this again. He was cute, but it was, I thought, one of the proof of the guy’s nature. Guys want to approach to Girls naturally, it will not need any efforts. No long explanations, excuses, white lies. You have the natural skill of picking up girls. Everybody. When they are kids, they are all successful, well kind of. They do not pay too much efforts to get close to girls, but getting older, getting more difficult & clear. Who is good, who is bad. Like PJ, he is naturally good. His friend BR, is naturally not. WN? Good. Aussie G, is so so, not really. My friend Bill, is naturally friendly. I do not know if it is good sign or bad for him. He is not sexually successful. Maybe for some other girls. KE, is, I do not know. He is okay I guess. Tony, must be good. I wonder, how about that small kid who I met at the park today. Did he feel something new today from my leg? I imagine, he is mommy-baby. He cries all the time to get mom’s attention to him always. So he does not want younger brothers, or sisters. He wants to be alone for his mom. The best. The first & last. Nobody cannot beat him. He does just need mom. He met me today. He met some other female first time today. He was shocked and became so curious. He decided to get close to this new object, and feel it. He touched it, smooth, a little wet, nice something. He looked over, saw me, and knew there would be more for him. In this world. He was hit by this new great fact which he had not known. He got out from his mommy’s world. Maybe, he now cries less, even hopes younger brother to take care of. He now does not mind to share his mommy’s love. As he knows, there would be much more for him.
They are all mommy boys. No one cannot exist without mom. Love your mom, boys. Be good in front of your mom. But remember there would be much more, wider world waiting you. Maybe some of them already know, some do not. Find your own best, and keep it. If you have not, yet, okay, walk towards to it honestly, and touch it. You would see, get something you really need. Like that boy, small kid.

Party
Party
The fact I have noticed since I had started to go out with my boy friend, who is American, is that the people, especially the foreigners in Japan, greet to only him, introduce themselves to only him, and glance at me as just his girlfriend who is Japanese, as usual. I hate this, but the night was started with this.
Saturday, I was invited to the party, held at one of my friends place. I usually go to these kinds of parties with my boy friend, so then talked with his friends accompanied with him. This time, it was actually my friend, of course he knows him too, but I tried to get acquitted with new people separately from him.
There were a lot of people, much more than I thought. Half were foreigner, and half were Japanese mixed with guys & girls. We encountered the guys from the party on the way to my friend’s place. My boyfriend seemed to know one of them from before. The guy said hello to him, introduced his name again, and glanced at me a moment. Before I introduced myself, he started to chat with my guy, and left to the store to get some drinks. This happens often, at parties, at clubs, at restaurants……so I am already used to it. Even though, this is never very nice. I decided to be more social by myself at the party on that night, so I did.
I met a few whom I already knew, and actually I introduced him to them as my boy friend. I also met new people, exchanged e-mail address and phone number. I had a great fun, did some girls talk, complained about guys things, got flirted with some guys.
Of course it is good too, being at those social occasion as his girl friend, and just being his belonging. But this is actually better to go there together, and be separate for a while, get to know with new people, and get back together again later. I have to admit I could not do before, because I was not confident enough to be by myself or be separate from him. After the party I realized that was me who had not tried to introduce myself and been satisfied at being his belonging. So I re-met the guy whom we met on the way later that night, I talked to him, he was pretty nice guy.
I have to stop being his girlfriend all the time, and make him my boyfriend more.

Westernized
Westernized
I am wondering if I could say I speak English in a loud voice. I am not fluent at all, I can just communicate in English. But do I really want to be fluent? Is it possible living in Japan?
One night, I went to two home parties accidentally. I was invited from my friend, and after that, the other friend whom I went there together asked me if I could go the other one held by his friend. I went to the beach daytime with my boyfriend PJ, so was really tired. PJ was there too, in a kind of party mood. So he was ready to go two parties, then why not…..?
At the first party, there were about 20 people, half Japanese half foreigners. There was the girl, who was the girlfriend of PJ’s friend, named Keiko. She was so happy to see me at the party, we talked together for a while. She told me that she was so impressed by me when we met first time, and has been adored me since then. According to her, I am very social, speak great English and deal with the foreigners on a line, looks so mature. I am not. I am not social enough, speak fake English, just try to speak with his friends in English. I was actually told my English sounded very fluent, where I had learned and how from the other girl who had lived in Canada for a year studied English. Were those people telling me white lie? I did not go to my head, but those compliments made me feel nice. So maybe I tried to be more social than usual unintentionally. Maybe I acted like really western like.
We moved to the second party around midnight. I was tired as hell and was in a bad mood because of that. Plus we had not had enough foods, so were hungry too. My drunken friend had trouble to find the party place, his friend’s house, but we fortunately run into the people from the party on the way. They told us the party was now “break time” because the policemen came over to check it, some neighbors called them. It was beautiful night, so we went to the small park nearby to walk around for a while. I understood at a moment when got in the house why the policemen came over, it was totally “Gaijin-house” atmosphere. The house had two stories, and there were more than 30 people in total. They set up small DJ booth at the each floor, were playing nice suspicious music, now quietly. Maybe they played little louder before the policemen came. Everybody was really drunk. I started to feel uncomfortable for some reason, even though I was pretty much drunk too. PJ was talking with some girl, and I was talking with this friend, Aussie guy who brought us here. There was his ex-girlfriend too, who broke up with him just few days ago. He was mumbling about the relationship with her, why she was bad to him, and started to flirt me. That was okay to some extent. He basically likes flirting with me in a friendly way. But he was beyond the line at that night, started to touch my legs and told me how great I am, sexy and cool, if I were not PJ’s girlfriend, he would have….That was sweet of him, I said thank you, but I was not too fucked up to be convinced him by his white lie. I walked over to PJ, interrupted his conversation with the girl who looked like be interested in him, and went up to upstairs, settled with PJ again. That was comfortable. It was dark, small room and the guy was playing good lounge music. It was more foreign & suspicious atmosphere than the first cheerful party. I liked both parties, but I had to admit I was more comfortable at the first party. I knew the reason when the girl showed up on the second floor to warn us to be quiet.
She seemed to live this house, one of this party organizer. She was small & skinny Japanese. She stood in front of us, and shouted “Warning!” Basically what she said us that we have got to be careful because the policemen came again to tell us that we could still be here because it was midnight, so we had nowhere to move. But we had to be very quiet, no music. What annoyed me was the way of her speaking. Yes, she is real fluent. Her speaking is really western. She said, “Quiet, but have fun,” and left to downstairs. I noticed that most of Japanese who were there, 2nd party, were pretty fluent in English, and somehow had “foreigner attitude”. They were not at the 1st party. Probably I was the one of the most “foreigner attitude” person there. And it brought me unpleasant idea. Was I possibly like her at the first party? Did I look like being so proud about speaking more natural English than others? Was I very snobbish because I could deal with the foreigners equally? Because of that, was I more comfortable there? Not because this second place looked a bit shady? If so, it is the proof that I think Japanese is inferior to westerners. I do not think I think this way, but I cannot persuade myself it is not either.
I have been thinking it would be wonderful if I could be really fluent in English, but now, I am not sure. What is fluent?
