About this blog
This blog started because I was way too happy about getting the MEXT scholarship, became a personal blog for a while, took a side trip into learning Japanese (for a very few posts) and now is a blog about living, studying and traveling in Japan, with the occasional book/ review. I only review books about Japan here, and whatever I just bought that I love so much I want to share it with you.
My name is Eustacia and I'm going to be studying in Japan from April 2012 onwards, courtesy of the Monbukagakusho (or MEXT). Initially, I thought of using this blog as a way to keep in touch with my friends and family, but then, I thought "if I'm already doing a blog, then why not take it one step further?". That's why, in addition to chronicling what I'm going through, I'm going to be posting book reviews, resources (print and websites) and other things that I think will be helpful if you want to live and/or study in Japan.
I hope that my blog will entertain you, and that by reading about my experiences here, you'll have a sense of what it's like to live and study in Japan!
P.s. I can also be found at Inside the Mind of a Bibliophile (my book blog). Plus, if you like to reblog stuff, I'm at tumblr (A Time to be Random), where I reblog and post my instagram photos.
If you want to get in touch with me, please use the email widget on the right, comment on a post, or use Google+. I will get back to you as soon as possible. Please do not message me through Facebook as I probably won't reply. I will not be notified about the messages (they go to the "Other" inbox) and I prefer to keep my Facebook account for friends and family.
