Finally saw Kyary Pamyu Pamyu tonight after one year of wanting to so bad! For those who don’t know she’s like a fusion of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga but adorable and Japanese. She’s also the ambassador of Kawaii. It was insane, crazy and so many what is going on moments- but so so so worth it.
Never stop traveling
Booked a trip to Taipei in February (2/7-11) super cheap flights from Osaka to Taipei…
If any of you are interested in tagging along and eating all the dumplings let me know!
After buying these months ago, the day is finally here! Happy birth month to me- crossing this off the Japan bucket list tonight.
do you buy any clothes in japan
Yes I do buy clothes in Japan- there’s a master post floating around somewhere for girls who are bigger than Japanese women; but typically I can walk into any uniqlo and find something that fits-
さようなら Hiroshima. 안녕하세요 Seoul —
Finally getting my summer vacation!
Not to mention I am super excited to see my dad and my sister for the second time this “summer”. It’s also strange that it is waaaaaay cheaper to go to Seoul than it is for me to go to Tokyo…
"Maia sensei, do you know アナと雪の女王？ Ok good- you will be singing LET IT GO to all the elementary school children today during 6th period…"
Today’s Kyuushoku: potato ham mix(?), soup with shrimp/tofu/mushrooms, bread, butter/honey spread, a frozen mikan and milk.
It was edible and wasn’t that bad, but something it in had made me feel like total crap afterwards. - I went to go take a nap in the nap room immediately after lunch and during my free period.
I might start trying to get bro sensei to eat my bread for me. It always makes me feel horribly sick whenever I eat it, and I absolutely love bread…
I was stoked about the mikan though! Yes! It’s almost mikan season again!!
Late night cravings for takoyaki result in questionable freezer aisle purchases
Adding “wingardium leviosa” to the list of unlikely things students have yelled at me during class.
+10 points for slytherin.
Back at the visit school on Thursdays which means excessive Carbo loading on Thursdays…
Today’s Kyuushoku: remen (cold, summer style ramen) egg roll, three baby tomatoes, bread and milk.
It was actually pretty tasty-
A simple lesson at my visit school about my trip to Nagasaki turned into a lesson on how to say “I’m drunk” and “I’m going to puke” to one horrified first year girl. It then resulted in the JTE sharing personal experiences, first thing in the morning. So glad to be back here though and teaching with “bro-sensei” again.
When I first arrived on JET I luckily had a western bed in my apartment but the mattress was unbearably hard. I somehow managed to suffer through it for a year.
Last night my neighbor gave me the bright idea of putting a futon on top of the mattress and sleeping on it. She even lent me an extra futon to try it out. I feel like I’m sleeping on a fluffy cloud and I will never go back. I happily shelled out $150 for a memory foam futon… Happy early birthday to me.
Were you affected by the landslides? I got really worried about you!
Thank you anon! No thankfully I wasn’t affected by the landslides at all - even though they happened fairly close to me.
Thank you for worrying about me!
I’m hoping to be able to give some time and volunteer with the clean up effort or donate before I head to Korea next week!
The topic was either 1)something that surprised you recently 2)something you want to do someday or 3)your favorite book/music/movie —— I’m not quite sure what happened here, but A+ for being entertaining
I’ve been here for a year and I’m still discovering hidden gems in my neighborhood - like this amazing authentic Chinese restaurant with the most amazing xiaolangbao
