I started blogging circa 2004. Apart from my slightly poor grammar skills then, my mind was very different at the time. And this cringy writing style went on for about 5ish more years. I threw away majority of my previous journal entries out of shame 😆 . But some made it to the cut, like this one, just something to laugh at or roll eyes with.
I was in a meeting and I knew “it” was coming, they might ask me to report my status… in Japanese! I thought about asking my teammate what to say but it’s an impolite thing to do since we’re in the middle of the meeting and whispers are not allowed. I was already sweating and my nose was already bleeding… And then, whew I got lucky! They skipped me!!! They asked my teammate directly!!! Yeyy! My mind was already jumping with joy… picturing images of me celebrating under a beautiful confetti… and then suddenly…
“Joane-San? (leader asks about my status)”
Waaaaaaaaaaahhhh!!! I cried!!! My eyes screamed for help at my teammate!!! But well he can’t speak for me…. so I was on my own…
In fairness, even though it’s just 1-3 almost-peed-on-my-pants sentences, I survived. Good thing, I crammed the basic japanese stuff the previous night so I got to worked it out.
