A Compilation of Current Me

I've been getting a bit busy lately so I've compiled small entries of my thoughts and experiences over the last couple of weeks.
 
Aside from school and work, my time has been being spent watching movies, reading, or taking a walk. Walking is an everyday thing, considering that I usually commute on foot but I tend to have phases between watching movies or reading. Right now, I'm into films. I know I'm all the way in France right now I have recently started to gain an appreciation for Japanese films. I feel like just sitting would be a waste of time so I've taken on the habit of giving myself a lymph massage, which is actually good to detox the body, for the duration of the film.
 
 I didn't necessarily decide on this from the beginning but I have this personal rule that if my destination is within an hour radius, I will walk. I look up the route and estimated time before hand but recently, even if the time shows a number over an hour, I tell myself that I can walk it in under an hour.
 
The restaurant the I work in actually feeds me dinner during my shifts so I look forward everytime to the hot bowl of rice that I only get to eat there.

I've been living off of baguettes and pasta for the sole reason that they are extremely cheap here in France. I craved raw fruit so I bought myself a grapefruit even though it was a bit on the expensive side. Cravings satsfied.

I actually met my first American customer today - 2 groups actually. One was from LA and actually new of the city that I am from. I got excited for this rare occassion and we were able to talk a bit about our hometowns.

I have been struggling with one of my classes since Day 1, not only because of the content but also because of the professor is a bit hard to understand. I was surprised to find myself "hearing" every word in class. I've got a long way to go until I understnd 100% of the content but I love seeing the progression of my French level.
 
I had a bit of time before work so I took a walk around the city. I found chocolate heels through a window pane of a chocolaterie and my initial thought was "Wow, that looks delicious." The price tag made me realize that I probably shouldn't.

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。

Tokyo Career Forum

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…

Exploring Paris Solo

One of the reasons why I really love Paris is that it's a great place to be for soloist like me. I prefer wandering alone at my own pace, although having company is great as well. Either way, exploring a city alone has really allowed me to get in touch with myself and make my own discoveries and meet new people. It was just one of those days when my insides were nudging me to get out and that is exactly what I did.
パリが好きな大きな理由の1つが1人でも街を楽しむことができることです。他の人と探検するのもいいですが、1人だからこそ自分のペースでじっくり楽しめたり、美術家で面白いおじいちゃんと話が盛り上がったりすなど新しい出会いがあるんだな、とこの街にに来て改めて思うようになりました。
I've always wanted to brunch at Angelina and thought, why not just go? I took a trip down to Rue Rivoli and ordered the brunch best. Aaaaa the famous chocolat chaud was just as smooth and decadent as I had heard it was. It was like drinking a melted chocolate bar. (*all of my photos showed up yellow, I don't know why but please overlook it)
そんなわたしですが、ある日とりあえず外に出たいと思い、ほとんどノープランの1日を過ごしました。ずっと前からAngelinaでブランチをしたいなと思っていたので、まずはそこに行くことにし…
