Tokyo Fish Market

Aaa summer break. 
I remember back in grade school when I looked forward to, yet dreaded, this time of the this time of the year. 
I like to think that I've gotten a bit wiser than those good ol' times and have learned to make better use of the precious 3 months that I can spend however I want. I would have to say that summer this year was preeeettttyy awesome.


Tsukiji is where the famous (and huge) fish market is located in Tokyo and I took a trip down to see it before they relocate it to start construction work for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. While its pretty cool to see the city move forward for such a huge event, there's something that just pulls a bit at your heartstrings to see a place with so much history go.


One of my friends works at this really cool café so my friend and I stopped by after our trip to Tsukiji. She made us this Latte art for us. She said it was her first time making it but I would say that it looks really good.


Senior year has officially begun. I love this back to school energy that I feel around school this time of the year. I'm almost finished taking all of my "required courses" so my mission this year is to just take classes to get enough credits to graduate. I'm really excited for my schedule this year, although I have early mornings everyday - I'm looking forward to taking the courses that have fascinated me from year one but couldn't really fit into my schedule.

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…
