Only on episode 8 and Im hooked

Im an American living in Japan. I just started living here and Im feeling a little alone.

This is a great podcast about women, not just in Japan, but all over the world. It will be Japan focused. I feel nice to hear what people are doing.

Super! I'm already taking some of these ideas to heart.
Instead of "waiting for some day", fit smaller or quicker projects into my life.
