RED



I'm beginning to see a trend in my weekend before finals weeks offically kicks off.
The stress of studying for finals while preparing everything for study abroad has been quite the struggle for me since finding a place to live in Paris at this time of the year is NOT EASY, well unless you're willing to pay a fat check every month, but that is obviously not the case for me.
Tip to anyone studying abroad anytime soon: Start preparing even if your school hasn't given you the GO sign.
I actually got in trouble for this (??) from the international education center since I was beginning my preparation early, which really made me question the intelligence of the man I talked to but nonetheless, I should have just ignored him and gone ahead and started with everything. There's is nothing worse than panicking at the last moment because there is so much to do with so little time. Speaking from experience.
Red nails, red ice cream, red notes.
Is this a sign for something?
 
期末試験がそろそろ始まるのですが、留学準備の試験勉強の両立の難しさをここ数週間とても感じています。先輩方はどうやってあんなに楽な顔をしていろいろと進めていけたのかがとても不思議です。わたしはストレスで顔に大きなニキビができるし、勉強していることがなかなか頭に入らないし。。。今週が終わるのが本当に待ち遠しいです。
そんな先週は気づいたら赤だれけの一週間でした。
赤い爪、赤いアイス、赤いノート。
何かのサインなのかなとも思ったりしてます。

アップするの忘れてたちょっと前の

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。

Saturday:
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 thesis...like 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…

GRADUATION and MOVING TO HAKATA

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…
