こんにちは！マラです！ Hello! I’m Mara. 2018.09.03
Hello everyone! My name is Mara Rivera (マラ・リヴエラ). It is nice to meet you. はじめまして! I don’t know much Japanese since I am still studying, but I hope people can get to know me. This is my first blog, so I will be talking about myself.
I come from a little state in the United States called Massachusetts (マサチューセッツ州) . In Massachusetts, I used to live in a cosy city called Boston.
Boston is a beautiful city, especially at night when the lights turn on. There is a relaxed night life that lets one feel like themselves. If you love the water, fish, and alcohol, Boston is the place to go to.
My hobbies include playing video games. I especially love role-playing games and MMORPGs (mass multiplayer online role playing games). I’ve played them since middle school I remember my first multiplayer online games being Club Penguin and Gaia Online. Since then, I’ve played other games like Tera, Blade & Soul, and recently Secret World Legends. If you like horror and mythology, I recommend this game if it is available.
I also enjoy reading books and writing my own stories. I finished writing two books when I was in middle school but threw them away because they were trash. Don’t ask. Currently, I am in the middle of writing a new story. It takes me about two weeks or a month to complete a chapter because I am busy at work, but once I finish it, I like to post my chapters online for anyone to read.
My favorite types of stories are romance, fantasy, history, and adventure. I love reading books like Game of Thrones and A Court Of Thorns And Roses. They are all English books of course, but hopefully, everyone here has heard of Game of Thrones.
I also used to be the tennis captain during high school. I stopped playing once college started because I wanted to focus on my studies. I majored in English and minored in communications. I focused more on writing and literature in the hopes I can work in a publishing company. If I go back to America, I will apply for graduate school so I can get my masters in publishing.
Currently, I live in Matsudo-shi, Chiba-ken, Japan. I have been here for a month but I still feel like there is much to the city I have not discovered yet. I hope I can make at least one good friend at my new share house so we can make many good memories together.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog! I hope you got to know me! And maybe later, I will know enough Japanese to try to write a blog in the language! But for now…
Hello. This is Mara. I'm from Boston in the US. I teach English and am a student of Japanese. My goals are to live and learn about this wonderful country and make new friends. I also write stories but have never written a blog before. There's a first for everything, though, right?
