Holy Moly New Major, Graduation, Moving to Japan?

So, this is not happening immediately, or really any time soon, but in a few years (probably 3 at the most), I will probably be moving to Japan. I know this seems way in advance, but I am the kind of person who likes to have the next 10 years outlined. I am an English major, and until recently I was planning on getting my teaching degree in English. However, due to financial reasons, I changed that plan and added Japanese as a second major, while dropping the Pre-Education. It was a major change for me, as I've had the whole "going-to-be-a-teacher" persona for the past 6 years. continue reading...

Wonderful trip planned to tour Ireland. Any one know if I need to buy bottled water or if I can drink tap water from reuseable bottle. I Love to drink lots of water and am concerned about cost?

Hello! (Again... )

Hello, bentoers! I haven't been active on this site for... about a year. (Don't worry, I /have/ been bentoing XP)

I did post a thread a while ago with this topic
( http://justbento.com/forum/recipe-sprucing )... That was when I was going into 7th grade. Well, now I'm preparing to go to high school! (Yaaaay... *coughdeadpan*) continue reading...

Hi Peoples!!

Hi hi! I'm knitticism, and I've been interested in Japanese culture my whole life. I'm currently a college student, so my meals are taken care of there, but the semester's almost over, and I think bento would be a fun way to bring my lunches to work. I have to watch what I put in my bento though. I recently caught swine flu, and the virus settled in my heart, causing myocarditis (a swelling of the heart muscle). As I (hopefully) heal up from that, I need to be on a low sodium diet- around 2,000 mg a day or less. continue reading...

Hi from Norwich

Hallo from Norwich.
I'm Francesca, AKA Stefafra, I'm 40 years old, Italian, and have lived in various bits of Europe, including The Neterlands, Switzerland (both in Zuerich and Fribourg) and now I live in the UK.
All this travels are due to my job: I try to be a scientist, I work with plants and fungi . In short, I'm a plant pathologist (and to steal a joke from somebody else, no I don't make autopsies on plants).
When I'm not mistreating plants I cook, and as I have a long fascination with all things Japanese I landed on this wonderful pages. continue reading...
