Hello! I’m Maryann, an American expat living in beautiful Chikugo, Japan from Tacoma, Washington. I am 29 years old and have a degree in Fine Art Drawing and Painting. I enjoy reading novels, watching movies, hiking and rock climbing, making art, cooking and trying new foods, and traveling.
Originally this blog was centered around my desire to lose weight and lead a physically healthier lifestyle, hence the name ヘルシー・ファイト (Healthy Fight). I quickly realized though that limiting my posts to weight-loss and food alone really wasn’t cutting it for me, and to be honest it felt the opposite of healthy. Now this blog is my way to just reflect on life no matter what that may include. Don’t worry, I am still fighting the healthy fight, but now it’s across all spectrums.
