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。

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…
