The supermarket was selling sunflowers a while back, so I bought a few to decorate my apartment.

The Garden Grows

My small garden has been doing well recently. My tomato plant is starting to bloom and my cucumbers are trying to climb up my wall. Everything is going according to plan.

April Changes

So, April is finally here. With it comes an array of changes. One of which relates to my job.

I’ve been reassigned to Gifu prefecture after 6 long months of working in Toyohashi City. No more 2+ hours of commuting!

Hopefully that means that I’ll have more time and energy to put towards my hobbies and this blog. Fingers crossed, everyone.

On our way

Today dragged on and on.

Usually, when I have weekend plans to look forward to, my Saturday fly by, but today time moved like molasses. I only had six lessons, instead of the usual seven or eight, with any downtime being used to correct essays or do paperwork.

But all I could think about was our trip to Tokyo.

Now I’m sitting on the nighttime highway bus, somewhere in Yokkaichi, knackered beyond belief, and wearing my friend’s jacket. 

It’s almost dead silent, with blacked out windows, and nothing to do. It’s almost like all my energy’s left, so maybe I should go to sleep so I can get through tomorrow’s sightseeing.

G’night all.

Little Sunflowers


One of my neighbours started growing sunflowers in front of their house. I bet one hundred yen that these things are going to be the size of my head by the end of the summer. Any takers?

Contrasting Colors


My second week working in Mie is finally over. I have a few more days next week, but I won’t have to work up so early next Saturday. Two more days in Mie and a few more days in Narumi. The rest of the month is in the office, but a long holiday is coming up. I’m still trying to decided where I will spend it.


Tulip Week 02


Yellow flowers are actually pretty difficult to photograph. The light reflects off of them a bit strangely at times.

Yellow Roses


While waiting outside the local ward office for my friends, I came across these beautiful little yellow roses. In the language of flowers, I’m told they mean friendship.

I think this is an orchid of some sort.
