Koala Park

One of my goals for this year is to go out jogging every morning to keep a healthy lifestyle.

There’s a park called “Koala Park” right in front of my house so I decided to start my new habit from today since it was a beautiful weather.


I tried not to be too pumped up and take it easy because I know I won’t continue it if I get stress out too much for the first day.

So I only ran for about 30 min around the Koala Park…






…but overall I didn’t get to meet any koala (haha)


Anyway, I haven’t been exercising lately so I’ll do my best to keep up with this habit.


I hope I see a koala tomorrow!!


To be continued…




A little bit about myself


Hello guys! My name’s Tom. Here’s my first post! 

I’m originally from Japan, but I currently live in Brisbane, Australia. I love the beautiful weather, nature, and above all, the laid back people living here. I lived my childhood in California from 2 yo to 9 yo and also in Japan for about 10 years, so I’m fluent in both English and Japanese (I do miss my Californian Life.)

I graduated college in Hawaii in 2013, but now I’m planning to transfer to University of Queensland from Feb 2016 to study Linguistics and French (hopefully I can become a perfect trilingual!) My goal is to get an MA or Ph.D. at UQ and become an English teacher in Japan, or a TESOL teacher in AUS or somewhere else in the world.

Some of my hobbies are cooking, wine tasting, traveling, and chilling out on the beach!

Since I’m still new to Australia, I decided to blog about my student life at UQ so most of my posts will be about my everyday life in AUS.

Plz feel free to follow me:)

Here’s my Japanese blog if you are interested↓↓
