800 Degrees Pizza

I don't know what I was thinking but I posted last week completely thinking that it was Sunday (it was actually Saturday).
This week was just a week of headaches - I'm constantly thinking about my graduation thesis and reports to write and I am so done.
I cannot wait for winter break.


Last weekend I wait dinner with some girls from the gymnastics team that I was part of until I left for France at a restaurant in Shinjuku called 800 Degrees Pizza. This restaurant was kind of like a mix between a fast food restaurant and a fine dining restaurant - no waiters came to take our order so we personally went to the counter to choose our pizza and toppings, kind of like Chipotle. The pizzas were then taken to a stove where they were baked until the crust turned nicely golden brown. We said cheers with some virgin mojitos and the restaurant's orignal lemonade since we were all busy the next day.

先週末は久しぶりに体操部女子のメンバーと集まって新宿にある800 Degrees Pizzaというレストランでピザを食べました。ここではウェイターさんがテーブルに来ないので、自分でカウンターまで行き、好きなものを頼むシステムでした。まず好きな生地の種類を選び、のせたいトッピングを選んでいくという注文の仕方です。そこから窯にピザを入れて焼いてもらいます。StarbucksやChipotleのようなファストフードとダイニングレストランが混ざったような場所です。

I took the Japanese Language Proficiency Test last weekend.
I guess not many people take the exam and I got many "Nihao"s from people.
Looking forward to the results!


This weeks film:
This script for this film was actually intended to for a play but was altered to be a movie.
It stars Meryl Streep and follows a poor yet quite lively family in Ireland, through young boy Michael.



  1. 夕べは顔が見られて声が聞けて嬉しかったよ。元気だけどあの寒そうな様子に暖房が必要だと思いました。2月頃の寒さは分かるでしょう?小さなヒーターでも置いた方が賢いよ。風邪でもひいたら大変だもの。

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。

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…
