Hello, it's me

Hello, hello!


I am sitting here, looking out on a beautiful Thursday afternoon that's making me itch to go outside. Like wow, it's gorgeous. The past couple days of bipolar rainstorm/sunshine, rainstorm/sunshine weather cycle the last couple of days have just left me a bit confused...is the weather purposely trying to keep me indoors? Weather has so much affect on my mood and today, I am very happy.

I feel like I constantly keep reiterating my themes for 2016, which are "challenge," "experience," and "productivity" and I just feel guilty when I have "free time." Like, what the hell is "free time"? There's ALWAYS something to do. Anyways, I'm just a bit frustrated in myself because I spent my morning bingewatching Casey Neistat's videos, not that it was a waste of time because this guy is hands down the best Youtuber out there and his videos are amazing. I just had things I had to do and ya, that didn't happen.

What has been happening, however, are my daily morning yoga sessions. I'm not really a morning person so I'm not exactly up to doing hard core cardio first thing in the morning, but yoga, I can do. I feel like I start the day on a better note than I did before and it's been great. YouTube, you are a godsend.

I have also finally (FINALLY) taken on Spanish and Indonesian and have been learning a little bit each day. Languages are so fun to learn and I find myself losing a sense of time when I'm (don't laugh) looking at various grammar structures (HA.HA.) But seriously, I'm having so much fun learning new languages.

So I have a talent when it comes to adding new shows to my list of "shows I must keep up with." A couple weeks ago I gave the long running hit "Law & Order" a go and loved it. A couple nights ago, I turned on "NCIS", hoping it'll help me fall asleep, but didn't go as plan. Obviously there's a reason why this show has been airing for 13 seasons. Obviously. I was awake but wasn't awake enough.

Running along with the theme of crime and law, I recently read a Beginner's Guide to Criminal Psychology by R. Bull, which was very fascinating to me. The book covered a wide spectrum of subjects and was really thorough on the jobs on a criminal psychologist. I'm planning to read more on the actual psychology aspect but overall, it was a great introductory book. Totally recommend it to any other geeks like me.

Alright, leaving for class soon.

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。


じゃまた。

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…
