First Day Back


Classes resumed today, marking today as the first day of second semester of sophomore year. I've been looking forward to taking my Spanish classes since I've taken all the available French classes. I was in a class with a lot of freshman and for some reason they all knew each other, and they were also extremely hyper and enthusiastic...I couldn't really keep up. Maybe I was like that my freshman year?


I got my results for my French exam that I took in February, which I had hoped to score at least a B2 in. Unfortunately, I scored a B1, which is below the recommended French level to study abroad. It's only "recommended" so the people at the study abroad center told me that I might still be able to go. I'm keeping my fingers crossed but for the time being, I'm going to get back to studying again for the exam in May. Darn.


So my sister recommended that I watch Game of Thrones a while back and I gave it a shot but didn't quite fall in love with it like she did. My friend Erika recommended it to me today and so I decided to give the show another chance. Not really sure about it. Erika said that it gets interesting after a few episodes so I think I'll be watching a few more until I officially decide to go on or not.

妹が前にわたしにオススメしてくれたGame of Thronesというイギリスのドラマを今日また友達に勧められたので観てみることにしました。もう4シーズンが放送された大人気のドラマなのですが、まだ好きかは分かりません。友達には4話くらいからおもしろくなると言われたのでそれまでは観ようとおもいます。

今日は用事でOpéraの方に行ってきました。いつもならちょっと早く出て、散歩しながら行こうかなとも思うのですが、今日はたまたま大雨。傘の上手な使い方をいまいち理解していないというか下手なわたしは、正直さしていてあまり意味がなかった様な気がします。笑 さすがに歩くのはちょっと大変だなと思ったので、今回はメトロⓂ️を使うことにしました。 帰りにも少しだけ入ったGalerie Lafayetteを一周してきました。高級ブランドがたくさんあり、さすがに買い物はできませんでしたが、見ているだけでも楽しい空間でした。靴のコーナーを撮り忘れてしまったことがちょっと悔しいです。ちょっと変わった形や色のものからクラシックな形のものまでたくさんあって、モール全体をわたしのウォークインクローゼットにしたいくらいでした。

前回入れなかったユニクロ。 ちょ〜オシャレでした。 お店のレイアウト、ディスプレー全てがなんだか高級感たっぷりでした。 値段も日本より少し高め?のような気もしました。

There are days when it is just not my day. Today's that day.
I literally spent all morning lying down catching up on Vlogmas videos and then sitting down at the library reading document after document for my I could not have been more mute and yet I feel absolutely drained. And I had actually intended to write a few pages for my thesis but I have absolutely no motivation and ended up doing the "easy stuff" and just collected data.

On a brighter note, I finally got a haircut. My reason for liking to have shorter hair in the winter is quite simple: I hate having my hair get static-y after wrapping it around with my scarf. Japan has this wonderful opportunity to be a "Cut Model" and get a haircut for maybe a fourth or a fifth of the original price. Basically, trainees or assistants of the salons practice different styles on you and maybe snap a few before and after photos. Some people prefer to have their hair done by professionals but ho…


Hello again.
I'm alive and well and slightly busier/have more responsibility on my hands  since the last time that I posted. Let's just first begin by saying that I am officially a college graduate. Here's the cake and plate of gigantic Gyozas that I celebrated with: 
大学を卒業しました。 台風直撃前で良かったです。 お祝い用のケーキと巨大餃子。

I'm starting my new job soon in Hakata, which is located in the Fukuoka prefecture.  I've moved into my new apartment, which I'm really loving but the last two months have just been such a whirlwind of prepping for graduation, moving, and getting things ready for my new job, that I'm just glad I can see finally start seeing an end to the commotion. Of course work is going to be a whole new journey but for the time being, I'm glad I have a roof over my head. My room has this loft and the stairs going up to it is basically a bunch of shelves. It's my bookshelf for now and it's looking pretty cool. I have a couple more books getting sent over an…
