Great story! Congrats on your baby! She’s absolutely gorgeous ;-) I’m so happy to see you started such a beautiful family! Sorry if I scared you but had to leave a comment after reading your story. Haven’t seen you in 10 years but reading this definitely brought me back some memories with you (good ones)!! I was young and stupid (crazy). You were young but so down to earth (smart). I’ll tell you, you deserve EVERYTHING GOOD life has to offer and more because you are amazing :-) Keep it up, buddy!
I left Japan in year 2008 and haven’t been back since then (Yup, I’m still crazy but enjoying my life). Now I live in Las Vegas.
Anyways… I’m so glad to randomly find your story on medium. Have a happy, healthy life!!
