Just got back the other day from a nice little trip through Kyoto (京都) and Kagoshima (鹿児島), but more on that later as I just wanna do a quick little update for August.
Though I've forgotten most of what happened last month already!
Well, luckily Roomie writes down a lot of what we do on her calender, so if I can just decode it...
Ah, looks like a fireworks festival the first Saturday of the month- the Ichikawa Fireworks Festival (市川花火大会). Roomie, Ash, Yuu, and a couple old friends (we'll call them Aya and HS) from UW all went. Wore our yukata/jinbei, brought lots of snacks and drinks, enjoyed the not-too-hot evening by the river, then came back home to play with sparklers and stuff on our balcony.
|Look, got my hurr all did up and everything!|
|The sunset, and the crowds waiting|
The following weekend was a surprise party for HS. Lots of food and drinks and fun again. And some crazy dancing.
Sunday the 25th Roomie and I met up with Gaki-chan, Ma-chan, and S for some delicious Korean foods and crazy mango creme-filled taiyaki in Kichijoji (吉祥寺; the restaurant is 韓味楽, decent priced and soooo good, definitely recommend going during lunch time), followed by the big festival in Azabu-juban (麻布十番祭り).
Other than that, August was mostly just work, a couple other random outings with Roomie, a few dates here and there with the Boy..
Mmhm. You know, same-old same-old.
And now I'm at the final countdown- only a week or so before I leave and it still really hasn't hit me. And I still have so much left to do. Why am I sitting here writing silly blog posts??
Oh that's right. Yes, I don't mean to brag but I happen to be an expert procrastinator.
I'll get this post up so I can go procrastinate some more. :D
