I'm still being asked and piqued about this to this very day over five years later. Five years! I can't think of many things within my life that lasted more than five years. A handful of friendships, a first love, and ranked just below these: a weird blip on the internet involving myself and a girl I knew and traveled with that enveloped itself into an LJ, one that refuses to go the way of every other LJ I've ever had in my life: chronicling a relentless revenge to hurt the girl's ego as tidy and simple as could be. A bit shameful but I refuse to give in.

Poor Emily, I'm not looking to be condescending by any means, but perhaps the bitter sensation of her in my mouth has melted into something I can draw a fond memory or two from. I was much different five years ago. She has to be different too. Maybe. I'm terrible with recognizing faces but my brain hasn't been able to make hers out for quite some time. The rest of it I mismatch for myself in my own head and tell myself there was still something nice about her.

Good luck on your job search!

It's amazing how much her tone is different when she writes stuff in English compared to her super fake Japanese persona
Yes! English is not my mother tongue, but she sounds very unfriendly and arrogant in English, but when she writes Japanese she is "nice".

Honestly, I even wouldn't be surprised if she and her partner had a dispute...but I've come to think it's also possible that she left because of permit issues...as you know, the Japanese government has another immigration system since July last year. From what I hear from other people, it isn't that easy anymore to get a "longer" permit. The permit with the longest duration is the 5 years one now - I suspect it will be more difficult (&time consuming) for spouses to obtain the permanent residence status, as you need the 5 years permit for application - but what if you get the 3 years ones for a "while"?
That being said, Emily came to Japan in summer(July-August), didn't she? So what if Emily got the 6 months permit - because she doesn't go to school, she didn't seem to have a "real" work - and she thought "ah, damn it"?
