It's Spring Break

I know I always say this but last month just flew by. I honestly don't know where it went. I finally got over my cold and the my week of spring break that I had been looking forward to for so long is almost coming to an end. It's been quite a whirlwind of everything this past week.
My friend came down to visit this week and we explored Paris during the three days she was here.


Brunch at Trocadero.


We walked to Arc de Triomphe and wandered down Champs Élysée. It was quite freezing but thanks goodness it wasn't raining.

近くのArc de Triompheまで散歩してChamps Élysée 通りをウィンドウショッピングしました。大分冷えていたのですが、雨が降っていなくてラッキーでした。

Our 12km walk that day ended at Jardin de Tuileries. I thought my legs were gonna fall off.

Jardin des Tuileries の方まで散歩したのですが、1日目は12kmも歩いていました。数字を見て驚きました。

Day 2 began at Musée d'Orsay followed by brunch at a restaurant near my school. I had heard that it was quite good there so it was a good opportunity to stop by.

2日目はMusée d'Orsayに行ってからブランチ。大学の前のカフェなのですが、美味しいと聞いていたので行きたいなーと思っていた場所です。

I've found that cheesecakes aren't very common here in France so I had to order it when I saw it on the menu. It was SO good.


Notre Dame

3rd and last day was a trip to Sacre Cœur and we saw an entire landscape or Paris from the dome. It was breathtakingly beautiful. A must see place for anyone visiting.

3日目はSacré Cœurに行ってきました。教会の上のドームからパリを見渡せることができました。晴れて良かったです。

Beautiful macaroons at a chocolate store nearby.

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…
