Musée de Picasso

One of the greatest things about France is that students get to enter museums for free (for the most part, otherwise cheaper than the original price). This blew me away considering how many museums are present in Paris alone and I am a bit ashamed to admit that I didn't realize this until this year. I've visited most of the major tourist spots but I have yet to uncover all of the other beauties that this city has to offer and so, I am making February my "visit museums (and other spots)" month - basically a "let's spend more times outside of my apartment" month. I have been getting too comfortable with he warmth and comfort of my room in contrast to the cold outdoors.
Anyways, I kicked off this month of museum visits with the Musée de Picasso and I have an extremely enjoyable experience there. I brought my passport with my visa, which got me through the gates for free and I got to experience this legend's life story through his arts and artifacts. There was an area that displayed a video of Picasso painting as well as several other ones that left me wonderstruck - I've always loved watching videos on how things are made and I think this was one of those moments.
If you're a student in Paris, take advantage of it and visit the museum because it will be worth it. If you're not a student, well, you'll enjoy it just the same.



  1. 私は絵画を見て感想が言えないという悲しい人間なのですが美術館には入る方だと思います。ピカソといえば箱根美術館で見ました。樋上先生と仲間3人で旅行した時です。常設か期間限定かも覚えていません。顔が重複してたり体の部分も定位置じゃないけど絵になってるよね。学生無料は幸せだね。

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…
