Got married to a Jman, gave birth to a son who's now 28, got divorced, got widowed, got a job and jobless right now. Sooo much learning and I must thank all those yrs. Some political awakening both here and in my home country. And right now just before my birthday and just before Heisei ends, wishing to have a new gainful employment with no discrimination at all.

trinklets2: WOW! That's a lot of living. I got married and had 3 sons. Things in the job and marriage are not going well, but my kids are great and I am healthy and have a job (that I hate). There is hope however, lol. I hope things work out for you!

Bad name era of Showa finished to be replaced to Heisei and ending to become Reiwa, a horrible name starting very soon. Between them I like Heisei the best, with the second Taisho democracy period.
