We had an awesome time.

So awesome that I took full advantage of taking the day off and slept in until noon. So worth it.

Looks like I've caught a bit of a cold. I took some medicine and now I feel groggy, but I'm still heading out for my training session and picking up some newly released books.

Gotta get some tips for the New Year holiday because otherwise, I'm just going to sit on my butt and eat mikan all day.

Alrighties. Errands today. Two work days. Then it's off to my grandmother's. Whee!

Headed back

Currently on the subway back to the house. Samancha will soon be on her way back to Hama.

It was an amazing trip filled with many good things.

I've already posted a bunch of Instagrams and will continue to post more over the next few days.

This pic is on the Santa Maria after we checked out from our hotel, which you can actually see in the background.

Ravenclaw nails-Part One

Samancha comes into town tomorrow for Interstellar, magic hot chocolate, and BINGO at a burger joint.

Then we're off to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas at Hogsmeade. Whee!

Expect mass Latergrams over the next few days.

As has become a thing for me this year, I've decided to do my nails for the occasion.

Ravenclaw colors in a candy cane stripe pattern and I'm hoping to pick up something today for holly leaves. I already have gems for the berries.

On a side note, out of pure coincidence, my nails match my new bag. I swear that was not planned.

Today's to-dos:
-Lunch with a dear friend
-Find holly leaves for my nails
-Training (maybe the last time this year)
-Check the weather and pack for USJ
-Make enough space for Samancha to sleep over

Here we go. :)

Notes to myself

I've started to stick up messages to myself in my booth. Slightly effective during lessons, good for a recharge during breaks.

So it snowed last night. I managed to get back from my grandmother's with only minor delays.

And today I got to wear my snow boots!

Which means I get to wear my boots. Happiness!

Also! Started cleaning my room my yesterday and found my ear muffs! Ears are now warm and toasty, making everything okay.

It's the little things in life.

Headed to my grandmother's for the night. Then my sprint to the end of the year begins.

Not sleeping tonight

Because I heard about it on The Colbert Report and a bunch of my friends are listening, I started listening to Serial.

So far, I recommend it. One down, ten to go.

Multiple birds with one stone

I've started a new project. The whole of it will be a sort of life's pursuit, but for now, I'm working on practing writing Japanese while hopefully passively learning to write kanji, practicing proper writing position, and inputing a certain piece of literature into my brain for above mentioned life's pursuit.

Also: Bought a new fountain pen and 4 new inks. Will Instagram tonight or tomorrow. :)
