Looking back: 2014

So it's that time of year again, (already?!) and I feel like it is an important time for me to look back at what I've gone through this year.


saying good bye

I quit a couple of things this year. First of all, the company that I worked for from when I was a new grad. So much happened there, and it doesn't feel like I was there only for a little less than 2 years. Without my experience there, I wouldn't have met my husband, or have my current job. So thank you!


I also quit blogging for VOGUE girl Japan. By doing so, I was able to take my blog and my career to the next level. 

VOGUE girl のブロガーも今年の初めに辞めました。おかげで、自分のブログに投資することができたし、仕事について考えることもできました。

saying hello

I got engaged and got married! I still can't believe I am a married woman now, but it's starting to sink in. My husband and I still live apart in Tokyo and SF, but after our wedding in March, I will be moving to SF!


I also got a new job at Pinterest Japan! I absolutely working with the team on the ground, at HQ, and in other parts of the world. There are so many people who inspire me on a daily basis. I have challenged myself to do so many things that I have never done before. There were some moments when things didn't go as planned, but overall, joining Pinterest was one of the luckiest and best decisions I have made in my life. I cannot wait to relocate and get to work more closely with them.

転職して、Pinterest Japan で働き始めました。日本支社のチームも、本社のチームも、世界中に散らばっているインターナショナルチームも、本当に優秀で素敵な人たちばかり。毎日インスパイアされています。今年は初めてのチャレンジをたくさんさせてもらって、上手くいかない時もあったけど、全体的に Pinterest に入社できたことは、私の人生の中でもとてもラッキーなことでした。来年サンフランシスコの本社で働けることを今から楽しみにしています!


I traveled quite a lot this year! One of my goals this year was to visit a new country, which I did, twice!

... and so many times to SF!

what's next, 2015?

2014 was a great year. I started doing the "100 resolutions" project, which actually lasted the whole year and motivated me throughout. Without it, I wouldn't have watched 38 movies in a year! (the goal was to watch 52 though)

2014 年はとてもいい1年でした。今年、「100の目標」のプロジェクトを始め、新しいことにたくさんチャレンジすることができました。これに書かなかったら、映画を年間 38 本も観ることはなかったと思います。(本当は 52 本観るのが目標だったんだけどね。)

This year, I decided NOT to think of 100 resolutions, because this year is the year to focus. I was able to explore and try out a lot of things this year, so in 2015 I want to focus on what I found out was important to me. Let's find out in the end of this year if it works :)

2015 年は、色々考えた挙句、100の目標はやらないことにしました。100の目標をやってみたことによって見えてきた、自分にとって最も重要ないくつかのことに全力を注ぐためです。なので 2015 年のテーマは「フォーカス」。どこまでいけるか楽しみです!

Happy New Year!
