I noticed something pretty great this morning as I were walking to the train station. There´s this park right next to the temple that lies just across the street from my guest house, and in that park there´s a small dam, and in that dam, there´s a bunch of totally adorable turtles, now how cute isn´t that?

Less than 2 weeks until the next part of the student loans is due, and I´m doing my best to sort of the budget till then, here´s a non negotiable to do list that I´ll scratch off as soon as we´ve passed the 19th though:

*Cut my hair
*Dye it blondeish/brunette
*Buying a new bag
*Along with some three quarter pants
*And possibly a spring jacket

My psychology report is still due, but it´s at least moving forward, hopefully I´ll have it done within the next few days. And apart from that we´ll have the grammar test, conversation test, essay test, kanji tests along with the chapter tests until the start of spring break at the end of next week.

I´ve almost watched all the episodes of 1 ritoru no namida, 1 litre of tears. Which is a really tragic and sad japanese drama, that I really do recommend. The movie is great as well, and I actually prefer it over the series, but they´re both great and they´ll definitely make you cry.



My week~ Birthdays & Saitama

The past couple of days has actually been pretty great, today was fully devoted to myself, by taking a really long 2 and a half hour run/sightseeing through parts of Saitama, from Warabi where I live all the way to Akabane, which is where I take the train to every day, There´s a really large river right before Akabane that separates it from Kawaguchi, an area that is perfect for outdoor activities, with baseball courts and football fields and even a golf court, nonetheless, it´s the perfect place to go jogging at, and it´s really beautiful, even now during the winter:)

The following pictures are from Kawaguchi & Nishikawaguchi.


Yesterday and the day before.

Yesterday eve was spent at the guesthouse til midnight,

The day before that was Marcus´s birthday, a friend from school & the guest house, a day that was celebrated with friends from school at a korean restaurant followed by a trip to an izakaya in baba. I´ll let the pictures speak for themselves, the food was amazing, no pictures from there unfortunately. followed by a few hours at a local pub here in Warabi. It was actually a really good evening, people are really kind here and I always seem to meet really sweet and kind people.


The group GReeeen has a great collection of songs, this is one of my favorites, named キセキ。

There´s another song named 遥か, unfortunately I can´t seem to find the real PV for it, the PV that always manages to bring tears to my eyes, it´s a good song nonetheless, so it´s defintiely worth listening to.

きおつけて下さい、love, Simon~

The third day of snow~

Ohayou minna!

I don´t really have any major updates of any sort, but I do have some pictures and what not to share, that I took this morning on my way to school, and then later on the same day on my way back home(<3)~

They´re mostly from the park here in Warabi. Japan is unfortunately in mid winter at the moment so there´s a lack of flowers, but it´s still very pretty, which makes me wonder how beautiful the other seasons actually are *googelyeyes*~

The weekend will be dedicated to Ueno Park, with the national museum and hopefully much more with a few from class~

Take care, Love, Simon~

Are we there yet?


I would like to start off with sharing another photo from Tokyofaces. And this time of a certain model who puts the word kaimono on my mind.

Which translates into Shopping, what I´m trying to say is that I can´t wait until the day when I´m actually able to just stroll around in shinjuku on a day to day basis with a new outfit every day(and yes I´m allowed to have dreams)~

Wandering through starry skies
And when tomorrow’s day arrives
I’ll be a moment closer to the
Brightest Hour here with you

Brightest Hour – The Submarines

And this second photo is from Warabi City, Saitama. And it´s actually the only photo that I have of my future home. Warabi Student Hotel, s&f House~

With love, Simon~
