I went to Osaka again this weekend. The idea suddenly popped into my head and I went. More pics and stories to come. I’m way too tired now.

Winds of Change

Big changes are coming in June. I will be moving again as well as starting a new work contract. This time, however, it will be at a branch school. As a kids’ teacher. It all happened so quickly. One moment I was trying to figure out where I was going to live this summer and […]

Loosing Pieces

Today, I’m going down to the city to sell the rest of my electronics (I’m only keeping my laptop and phone) and a few other things I’ve collected through out the years. Right now, I’m waiting at the train station with two large bags, filled with the remnants of what made my room my room. […]

Chilling with Friends

Today I’m going to celebrate a birthday with a few friends. It’s going to be the last time I see some of them for a while, so I’m going to make sure to have fun.

Cherry Blossoms, by work

The cherry blossom tree, near my job, has started to bud. When I saw it, it made me so happy. This is how you know it’s really spring. Until I see these little buds, and watch the blossom, it’s not spring. Even if the calendar tries to tell me otherwise…

Expanding like Cabbage

I decided to do something different tonight, instead of just heading home straight after work. I’ve been thinking a lot about why I’ve been feeling a little down lately, and I came to the conclusion that one of the reasons is that I don’t do much outside of work, go home, and do something minor […]


Somebody got flowers delivered to them yesterday at the office. Not sure who these were for or who sent them (they were sitting on a table in the break room) but I’m happy for them. I wonder how these are taken care of and what they are called.

Little Spots of Color

Mom and I celebrated Labor Day by going out to eat yesterday. We had intended to have some sushi, but our usual spot was closed due to a lack of patrons. Instead we split some wings and salad at the nearby Whole Foods. On the way back, we came across a lovely flower arrangement on […]

I Forgot How Unfun this Is

So, the schools started up again today. While waiting for the bus, I realized just how damn unfun the morning commute is, when people are actually out and about. I had honestly forgotten. My students are going to be in for a surprise when they realize that I won’t be coming back this year. I’ve […]

Fun to be Had

Today I’m going on a trip to the amusement park with my mom. I’ve been looking forward to this all week. She mentioned it a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been counting down the days since.

Lapse in Activity

So, the last week I’ve been away on jury duty. I wasn’t picked for any cases (though it was a near thing), but I have spent more time than I would have liked inside a court room. On my last day there, there was a draw for a 24 member grand jury, that was for […]

Happy Fourth!

It’s that time of the year again, when we stuff our selves with grilled foods, and frighten the neighborhood pets with loud, colorful explosions. Hope everyone has a good fourth, regardless if you celebrate or not (for those who don’t, hope you have a great Saturday).
