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…

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…
