I’m not a house person. In fact, I spend most of my time away from the home, but I love my family. I decided early on in life that I wasn’t the type of person to stay in a freezer, chiseling away my life just to become a housewife or live within a black box of stereotypes. It meant pulling away from the rest of the world, including the people that didn’t accept me. Peeling away my inhibitions, I worked my butt off to get to Japan to teach English and to change my life. Now, it’s up to me to live up to my own expectations and potential.
