Postcards and a late lunch

Settling in until the heat outside dissipates. Hoping to get most of these postcards at least addressed before I leave.

How I spent the night after work

Updating my planner/journal.

Still don't like drawing people, but it actually kinda looks like Deadpool. Once I color him in, it'll be close enough. At least I got him drawn. That was the hard part.

I'll work on this week later. Trying to figure out what to include for this week.

Monday shirt

I had already gotten two new shirts when I came across this one at GU, but I just had to have it. I know it's for people with normal work schedules to get over the Monday blues, but Monday is my training day so it's quite fitting in a different way.

In other news, Nagoya's apparently 36 degrees? What is this madness?

Shiro Noir!

Not wanting to go back to the house, I bought a whole load of stuff at Tokyu Hands then dropped by the Komeda near the house. Love their iced coffee.

The current packaging for the nuts is the Komeda guy and a brick building and the flag in the top right corner is typically a lampshade, but I got the rare Shiro Noir!

For those unfamiliar with Komeda Coffee, a Shiro Noir is a warm danish topped with soft serve. It's a Nagoya thing.

Okies. Now to eat my food, drink my coffee, and write in my planner. And if I can handle more sugar, get a shaved ice for dessert.

Round 2!

Opted for a seat near the back this time just to see what it's like. Not too shabby.

Also, being Tuesday afternoon, it's pretty empty. I'm still going to annoy everyone here by laughing too much. Except maybe the white guy sitting near the front. And anyone else like me. :)

AND! If the trailers are the same, I get to see the Rouge One trailer again! And a bunch of other good ones too. Squee! Time to be the loud American.

At Antico Cafe

Common sense tells me I should head back soon to beat the potential rain. But I have an umbrella and I don't want to head back just yet.

So I've gotten my fave sandwich at one of my fave cafes and I'm going to update my planner and write letters.

Things are changing, both in and out of my control. Time to step back and make a few game plans.

"Language." Cap in Age of Ultron

For reasons too long, and to be honest, too depressing to get into right now, I've decided to cut down on my cursing.

People who know me up until university, don't know me as a curser, but people closest to me, especially these past 3 years, know I curse often. Not a lot, but more easily than I should.

This morning, while enjoying my pre-work morning, I looked up "curse word alternatives" and wrote down a few that caught my eye. It was quite entertaining. Not that I'm going to use all of them, but it has made me want to find something unique that works for me.

I also need to expand my vocab in general, but I'll leave that for later.

As I mentioned Instagram, I postponed Cap to Tuesday and climbing to Wednesday and as planned, leisurely made my way to Atsuta Shrine. It's a bit hot, but just right in the shade with the cool breeze.

Made the rounds, paid my respects, and even got a bell purification. And now I'm enjoying a shaved ice next to a pond while writing some letters and postcards.

What a lovely day.

Thursday, May 5, 2016


Skipped out two weeks ago due to inescapable sleeping in, but I managed to go today. Taught my two lessons, then head over to the gym.

It wasn't as crowded as I expected and most groups left by 6ish. I was my usual loner self, trying to remind myself to focus (and not listen for my own voice on the radio) and use my back muscles instead of my forearms. Not bad. My balance has been improving recently as well and the falling doesn't scare me as much, so yay.

As the evening progressed, I uncharacteristically started up a conversation with two people who looked like beginners (not that I'm advanced in any way) and ended up trying the same problem with them (blue 25) as well as passing on advice I got from my trainer about stretching and my own experience about properly moisturizing.

Speaking of uncharacteristic, I even asked the staff for advice about the problem and I think I got it, but my hands were done by that point. Next time.

Which might be next week Friday-ish, if I can manage it.

But for tomorrow, I shall retreat into my introvert shell to recharge. Enough socializing for this week. I still need to work Saturday and Sunday.

And then it's Monday again. Yay for Mondays. Training day. And extra bonus since I took the whole of next week off.

Turning Pages: 図書館戦争 Love&War 別冊編 2

Civil War? Awesome!

Will probably watch it again soon.

After the movie, I wandered to the Towers to check out some stationery (I was good today) and pick up Love&War and chill at Antico Cafe until training at 4.

OMG! This cover! The obi! I probably shouldn't read this in public (the novels were blush worthy enough), but I probably will.

Love how my cappucino matches.

No one needs to ask which side I'm on.

Or what movie I'm seeing, for that matter.

Even got free postcards. (Samancha, they will make their way to you one way or another)

Really starting to get excited now. Yay movies!
