...for your kind words regarding the earthquake.
My family is fine and it seems that they aren't in any immediate danger. Thanks to everyone who sent me kind words during these past few days.
A few of my friends have told me that there is no real damage in the Tokyo area. Supplies are short and electricity is a major concern. However, as a friend of mine in Tokyo said, "it's selfish to worry about ourselves compared to areas that were hit by the tsunamis. We just need to stay calm and prepare ourselves". Thank you so much to people like @Yumeko55 for sharing accurate information to those who can't read/write Japanese.
I have been overwhelmed with the amount of kind tweets, emails, whatsapp messages, everything that I have received from blogger friends to make sure that my family is OK. Thank you for all of the blog posts praying for Japan. There has been a lot of misinformation and selfish comments as well, but I am just so happy that the majority of the world has been so kind. Thank you again.
My parents told me that their nearby supermarkets have been pretty bare of bread and other foods that do not require cooking, as they have been diverted to the areas that are most affected. It is a minor inconvenience, but nothing compared to the needs of the people in the hard hit areas. If you would like to donate, please donate to a group which will really use their funds for Japan, not some celebrity who has "pledged to donate for every RT". Thank you, Médecins Sans Frontières, for already getting to Miyagi.
I have also been getting limited internet for the past week or so. Please look up the news if you are unclear on why this is happening. No, it is not related to the earthquake.
I'd like to focus on getting well. I have been seriously sick for the past week. I haven't been sick for more than one day in a very long time. I haven't been eating junk food, but I certainly have not been eating well. Hopefully, I will get better and get back on my fitness regiment soon.
Thank you again!!
