The Smile

A week has already gone by since the first day back to classes and I am in awe at the speed in which time has been rushing past me. Tokyo weather has been quite wet the last couple of days and rather cold despite the cherry blossoms blooming everywhere that's supposed to signfy the start of warmth and spring.

I have Spanish first period 4 days a week and the one day that I don't, aka Wednesday, I forgot that I didn't have to wake up ridiculously early to get ready. At least I had a few hours to myself.

The best thing this week by far was catching up with friends again. It's quite rare to catch all of us together, well actually we're missing one person, but anyway, we're all so busy all the time, so I could not have been happier for the random get together.

予定が入っていなかった4人で新宿のThe Smileというお店にハンバーガーを食べに行ってきました。座って、ハンバーガーを食べて、喋っていただけなのに、本当に楽しくて時間があっという間に過ぎてしまいました。わたしは一限あるからちょっと早めに帰ろうと思っていたのですが、たまにはいっかと思い、デザートを頼み少し長めに残りました。
The four of us who were free went to a burger joint called The Smile in Shinjuku. We literally just ate our burgers and talked but time just flew on by. I got a baked apple Gorgonzola burger - sounds pretty out there but it was a preeeety awesome burger.
I'm kind of a burger addict so when I eat one burger, I crave another one until I satisfy my needs; basically, it's an endless cycle. I would definitely have to go with a big fat, juicy burger with extra crispy fries and cheesecake for my last meal. Throw in a vanilla milkshake and I would be the happiest girl in the world.

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…
