Slump.

So the past few days have really taken a toll on my mood. I am generally a very happy person, and I never really stay in a bad mood for long. But the holidays, homesickness, stress at work, all of them combined into a neat package and made me start rethinking all my decisions. The […]

Empty.

Celebration.

So yesterday I didn’t get any more wordage into my WIP. But I was ahead so I let myself relax for the rest of the day and it was nice. Today I went to a party! So I am kind of (extremely) obsessed with a group called NEWS. When I was in high school, I […]

Starbucks.

Today I woke up and had to leave my friends house since she had to go to Osaka. I had a few hours to wait until my friends could meet me, so I went to the Starbucks across the street from Kyoto station and got some hot chocolate. A JET friend of mine was inside […]
