Oktoberfest

Gosh this week has just not been easy for me - one stressful event after another just keep on piling up and I'm ready to explode. It's kind of hard to imagine that just last weekend I was in Yokohama to enjoy the Oktoberfest with some good friends and beer...guess it all just started after that. Anyways, let's just call this week one big unstable emotional mess.

今週はなんだかあまり気分が乗らない一週間でした。嫌なこと、失敗、落ち込むことが次から次へと重なって正直ちょっと頭が少しおかしくなりそうでした。先週末には横浜で友達と楽しくオクトーバーフェストに行っていたのに。。。とりあえず来週からは気持ちを入れ替えて楽しく過ごしたいと思います。

Spotify came to Japan! (finally!)
Well actually it was released I believe a couple weeks ago but I finally got to downloading it last weekend. The soundtracks are a little different to me only because I first downloaded the app when I was in France, where the music and vibes catered to the French audience. I'm definitely hearing a lot more Japanese songs, which I don't usually listen to, but the whole point of Spotify is to discover new music right?!

そういえばSpotifyがやっと日本にも上陸しました!無料で音楽を好きなだけ聞けるアプリなのですが、既に幾つもプレイリストができているので、気分に合わせて好きなジャンルや”気分”を選んで聴けるのでオススメです。


As I mentioned, I went to the Oktoberfest in Yokohama, which is a scaled down version of the original in Germany. I really fell in love with Germany throughout my trips last year around the country, which pushed me to start learning the language this semester. My sister also took the language for a few years so now we have a little more in common, which makes me really excited. Anyways, the event was super fun, chill, festive, full of beer, and happy people. We walked along the waters at night (Yokohama is port city!) and the illuminations were quite magical.

先週末は友達と横浜のオクトーバーフェストに行ってきました。もともとはドイツのビールフェスなのですが、去年2回旅行をしてから興味がどんどん湧いてきました。留学前は”フランス”という言葉にとても敏感になっていたのですが、今は”ドイツ”になりました。とっても賑やかで、ゆっくりできて、楽しくて、美味しいビールをたくさん飲めた一日でした。夜には海岸のイルミネーションが光っててキレイでした。

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。

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…

GRADUATION and MOVING TO HAKATA

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…
