YEN Yokohama Expat Network
I'm beat, did too much today, that's for sure. Sometimes when you're creative juices are flowing it's a good thing to max out as much as you can. You never know how many days in a row you'll experience lack of ambition. Launching this page and creating Part 1 of a new curriculum for new concept took me all day - but I got a lot done. Heart pains at 11:25pm can't be good. I'll update this article at a better time when mu head is on straight.
Ok I'm back! I'm rejuvenated and ready. I wrote the above when I was completely exhausted and burned out. I was however on a roll so I just kept going. I'm glad I did.
YEN (Yokohama Expat Network) was started by myself with permission to essentially copy word for word the guidelines from TEN (Tokyo Expat Network). This successful page has nearly 19,000 members that are predominantly foreigners living here in Japan. I am too a member but got a tad disappointed when my search results always ended up with Tokyo connects. Indeed Yokohama is conveniently close to Tokyo but my goal of YEN is to connect with people that are right next door. For years I've been living in Japan and connecting with great people that were born here. I have no regrets but recently I've been especially missing that ability to be able to speak about future visions, ideas and feelings in my native tongue. After the first day we had 100 members. Today we reached 150. Personally I'm really excited to see where this goes.
