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.

Me cooking =boiling past and mixing in pre-cut veggies and pasta sauce.

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。


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.
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.

The Post I Forgot to Upload Last Week

I was near Opera today for a commitment and while I would usually leave a little early so that I could walk to my destination, I decided otherwise when I saw that it was pouring rain. I took the Metro for the first time in a while. I obviously brought an umbrella with me but I always question whether I need it or not since I somehow get wet anyways. I stopped by Galerie Lafayette to look around. All the high end products are not too friendly for my budget but the mall is like one big art exhibit that you can enjoy just strolling around in.

Stepped into the UNIQLO that I was too sccared to walk into last time and was in awe at how chic everything looked. There was a totally different atmosphere to the ones I am used to in Japan. I think the prices were also a tad bit higher.

Talk soon!
