Musée National de Moyen Age

I am on quite a roll with my mission to visit as many museums as I can in Paris - I took an hour and a half before and after my class today and visited 2 museums. I'll be sharing my visit to the Musee de Moyen Age which was the one I went to this morning.
You may have already guessed but this museum is based around the Middle Ages in Europe and the building itself is actually one from that time. This completely blew me away because despite its rather cute, storybook like exterior, there are not only the regular wooden flooring rooms but also floor-to-ceiling-made-of-stone rooms that made me question whether I was still in the same building.
Like most other educated individuals, I started studying the Middle Ages in elementary school and I don't know how to say it without sounding a bit stupid, but I've always struggled to view this era as something that actually existed. It was more of childhood story-esque period (am I making any sense here???) but that can be said for any history before the 19th century to be honest. It was interesting to see this age "come to life" through countless artifacts and for me to finally realize that yes, this Age was not just words in a history book.
Anyways, I thoroughly enjoyed it and I recommend it to anyone who's interested in slipping back in time for a while.

This was the first time I saw stained glass windows literally right in front of my face. I didn't realize how much work was put into each of the very detailed pieces.



  1. 中世紀にこんな技術があったなんてほんとに驚かされるね。今だったら古いものを見て真似ができるけど、その時代ってイメージとかで作り始めるんだもの。先代達は偉いね。

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…
