Our Germany trip was over but my friend stopped by in Paris before going back to the UK where she's studying abroad!


We arrived pretty late in Paris and we were both really tired so we decided to just call it a night and see each other again the next day. I absolutely love that feeling of coming home after being out for  a long time.


We met up at the Latin Quarter, which is where my university is located.

次の日は朝からLatin Quarterで待ち合わせ。

Jardin du Luxembourg. I can't believe ID didn't take more photos but it's a beautiful place full of nature.

Notre Dame


My friend had been telling me that she hasn't had good Japanese food in a while so we stopped by the restaurant that I work at for some Gyudon, Katsu Curry and Gyoza. Pretty heavy for a breakfast but we were both very happy after a week of living off of bread, sausages, and beer.


Walking off all the food with a trip to the Louvre.


(Not the Champs Elysee)


Paris (maybe other cities as well?) has chairs sitting around at parks that are located in various parts of the city for people to sit, lounge, and enjoy the view. This is something I have come to love about the city but was kind of bizarre at first, especially coming from two very capitalistic countries like the US and Japan where I feel like there's a constant pressure to keep moving.
Enjoying another sit and talk session.


The real Champs Elysee


A cup of chocolate chaud to warm us up.


It was a bit far since we were walking but we made it to the Eiffel Tower!
Sitting above the fountains for a photo-taking/talk session.


Before we knew it, the sky was turning darker and we went down to see the tower from below.


Next day was sadly my friend's last day in Paris.
Spent the morning together over some brunch.
Can't wait to see you again in the summer!

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…
