That moment when…

You look in a drawer of your desk that you usually never use. You’re double checking to make sure you have everything you need to take home for the weekend.
And you find random snacks that you had no idea/maybe had completely forgotten about were there…
Yeah, I found these snacks the other day. I have no idea how long they’ve been there, hoping senpai would notice them.
They haven’t expired yet, though. So now I have random snacks to try out at some point 😀



I met this incredibly nice woman recently who let me try on a real furisode kimono at her house one evening!
It was absolutely beautiful and a really fun experience. I can’t imagine women wearing these all the time, or even just how the ties happen… Just wow.




I am a nerd.

I am my own brand of nerd. I’m an English major type of nerd. But a very specific kind of English major type of nerd.

I really love stationary, and specific English grammar study things that seem really silly and tedious respectively.

It’s dangerous sometimes for me to go to stationary stores. Because I want to buy WAY too many things. Everything is just so pretty and awesome and stationary is an art. Pencils and pens and highlighters and markers and things are fun and pretty and I want them. And don’t even get me started on notebooks. I have a whole drawer in my closet in the US filled with notebooks that I’ve collected. And I want more. Always.

So with that in mind, I’m going to now link you to this article that I read today that just made my weirdly nerdy self very happy and wanting very specific stationary things.

I love the breakdown of the various strengths of pencil lead, and I want more pencils of the varying degrees. Particularly, I want an art set of woodless graphites with a variety of these pencil weights. I like to draw, but I have to be in the right mood for it, and fancy art supplies like that would help to encourage me to explore drawing more.

The other nerdy English major thing that I want to rant about since I’m sharing links and stuff is something from my grade school English class days. This isn’t something that’s ever used in normal life, but this is something that I had a lot of fun and fascination with back in grade school and something that I recently stumbled across again. I of course–being me–got mildly obsessed with it again for a while. Have any ideas what the heck I’m referring to?

It’s SENTENCE DIAGRAMMING!!! YAAAAAAAAY! I even found an amazingly comprehensive guide on how to diagram sentences. You probably won’t enjoy this as much as I do, but if you want to take a look at my weird interests, here’s the link:

Like I said, I’m an English major type of nerd of my own variety. I enjoy this greatly. And I hope you do too. Otherwise it might be a little awkward that you’ve read through this post this far…

Alright, thanks for hanging out with me. 🙂 Talk to you later! 😀

I went to a festival in a small town recently.

I went to this small festival that I don’t even know what we called with some lovely friends. It was in a small town about an hour or so from my place. It was really cool.
At the festival they had this boat decoration piece from which people were throwing out candy to the masses. It is amazing how violent the nicest person can become when in a contest situation to get the most of something.
It was crazy and I got pelted with candy. And pictured here is the resulting haul from mine and my friends’ efforts. Wow. I took home about a fourth of that.
I will have candy around for a long time… There will be absolutely no rushing to eat this. That just sounds like a stomach ache waiting to happen.

Excursion Southward

So I’m waiting to pick up some friends at a train station, and I needed to describe some parts of my journey southward to the station.
There were several times on my drive here where I really wish I could have been in the passenger seat and just look out at the majesty of the mountains and coastline of Japan.
There were a few times where I really had to just wonder to myself at how magnificent the scenery here is. At how pure and untouched a lot of these mountainsides and peaks are.
Even the bays and coastlines, which clearly show the signs of human enginuity and development, still look glorious.
The views looked like paintings. It was incredible.
