Hey, I'm Day!
Welcome to my blog.
I’m a lifelong traveler, language-learner, musician, and vegan foodie, and I’m here to share a few pieces of my journey with you.
I’ve got so many ongoing dreams and creative projects that I couldn’t choose just one thing to dedicate this blog to.
So, here you’ll find a happy combination of all things related to Japanese culture, life abroad, language translation, song covers, vegan living, and more!
If any of that sounds cool to you, then you’ve come to the right place. 😛
Happy reading! Love, Day

hi Day: Great blog site! I hope your Japanese experience is even better than you wished for. All is well here at Augustana – coping with online teaching and budget cuts, but I have a sabbatical coming up now. all the best, Glen
Hello Glen! Wonderful to hear from you! I have been having a wonderful time here so far. 🙂 I’ve been missing Augustana a lot lately. Hard to believe how long it’s been since I graduated! I hope that you enjoy your sabbatical!
