About the Author

Howdy y’all,

As the name suggests, I’m a Texan living in Tokyo. I grew up living all over the globe (Texas, Ghana, Hokkaido); my true passion is traveling. I am a freelance journalist, writing my life story on the internet for strangers to read.

If you have any questions, please shoot me an email at:


As long as I’m not traveling, I should respond relatively quickly.

  1. Hi! I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award. I hope that you accept but you don’t have to. Check out my page for rules and procedures and keep writing! 🙂

  2. Hi Grace! I actually found your blog via google searching. I am studying at ICU this summer and was wondering if you would be open to answering questions. Would you be open to communicating via email? Thank you! 🙂

    • Hi Keara,

      Sure. My email is Grace.Buchele@gmail,com
      I actually did the summer course last year – and ended up staying on for a full year at ICU. I think about half the people in the summer course do that.
      I remember being super-confused when I first got to ICU for the summer program; I can probably answer most of your questions now.

  3. I just found your blog; love the work you’re doing. I was a 4-year student at ICU a few years ago (dropped out, haha), and found lots of similarities when I first came here, too. Keep up the good work!!

    • Thanks! I’m glad you like it.

      I like ICU. It’s… interesting. Through work and friends, I’ve actually met quite a few people who dropped out of ICU. It seems to be a trend; I get it.
