I feel as if there are so many things that I could have written about yet I haven´t put any of it down on paper. Never the less, the past month or so has been perfect, and I´ve found myself enjoying each and every day of it. Today has been fairly calm, todays class was great and then I ran some errands for my JLPT (japanese level proficiency test) which I´m taking in December, N2. After that, I did some shopping, clothes of course. Two shirts from Zara and a shirt and jeans from H&M. I then returned home and ate Dinner, Curry that I made with Rin yesterday. Which was followed by some reading for a while until Rin came home<3.

I recently bought a few books that I´ve wanted to read for quite a while now, which is what I´ll try to keep myself busy with during the weekend, since Rin is busy with other stuff . One of them is “The Golden lily”, which is the follow up to bloodlines which I loved a lot, as well as Meads previous books.

Work moves on as usual, basically every Saturday unless there´s special holidays during the weekdays where I can substitute school with work. Fall break is coming up soon so I´ll work a lot then as well, I´ve also planned a trip to Nikko during the consecutive Holiday weekend with Rin, which I´m really looking forward to, we booked the hotel the other day. Nikko is famous for it´s temples and the fall colors, which I think will be beautiful.

I´ll try to write more soon~~ Love, Simon

“But then the sun came up and reality set in”

Hi hi, it´s almost been a month and for that I suppose I´m sorry, not really but anyhow. There´s just a few days left of summer break, school starts again on Monday and until then I´m swamped with work, I´ve been working everyday lately and I will continue doing so up to and including Saturday.

Sunday will be my one day off before classes start again, a day that will be spent with a trip to an Aquarium with a japanese friend of mine, always wanted to go but my Aquarium plans has always seem to fall through so fingers crossed.

Summer break itself hasn’t really been that spectacular, there were a few sad days but apart from that it´s been okay, busy with work which is good considering that I have a neverending list of things that I want to buy, especially souvenirs and decorations for Sweden. I´m still trying to figure out as of when I should go back, school ends on the 21st of December and Sweden´s spring semester doesn´t start until around the 25th of January, so somewhere in between that window, I could make it home for christmas but that would mean an entire month just doing nothing in Sweden, I think that I´d rather work for a few more weeks here in Japan instead:S Which would mean me missing my first christmas ever..

I always went to see the Odaiba oHanabi with a few friends the other day! My second ohanabi here in Japan, they were both really beautiful and It´s a really great summer tradition.


Work and the Movies~

Another week has almost passed so I´ll a few sentences regarding the highlights. First of all, as of last week, I´ve been working part-time at a hotel in the Tokyo Bay area, which would be my first part-time job here in Japan, happy:)

It´s named Hotel Trusty, Tokyo Bayside, and it´s the two tall buildings that are connected at the top. It´s very beautiful and so is the view from the rooms. My job falls under bed making so it´s nothing spectacular but work is work so I´m happy nonetheless.

Apart from school & work, It was a friends birthday the other day. And it was celebrated at a mexican styled restaurant where a few artists performed, one of them was The 9Miles, who I actually really like, the song below is by them~

I also went out to see the new Snow white movie with Emi the other day, so we went for dinner and then the movies, my favorite day of the week. Also my first time at the movies here in Japan,  I rarely ever go to the movies, even in Sweden. I guess I should though. If I remember correctly then my last time, before Snow White, was Avatar:o, but that must have been years ago.

Nevertheless, I did like the movie. Kirsten Stewart was great and I like the guy who plays Thor in Thor,  duh:)

I guess that would sum most of it up, Tomorrow will be spent with a trip to Ikea with Takuya, and probably something more afterwards. Saturday and Sunday means work, but just from the morning til hopefully not too late, so the nights are off, so Saturday night will be spent with Emi.
