So… yes, it’s been a while since i updated last.. and of course with my life, that means many things have passed already! Damn.. Can I remember them all?? Who knows.. but I’ll post the important things that I can remember, and anything else I’ll have to update later!
Catching up with Fiona in Kobe!! ☆

Lets start with today and work backwards. Today I got my hair cut for the first time since I’ve been to Japan this time! It was almost 4 months of not cutting.. and whilst I liked having my hair grow longer, it was starting to become annoying having to straighten it everyday.. Though I did manage to throw some wax into it and with the aid of my straightener, kind of go curly.. Anyway, most of the brown is out, it’s thinned out, and I use less shampoo again! Win Win!!

Yesterday, being Tuesday I went to Ikea, which I found out is spelt イケア in Japanese.. slightly different pronunciation! I spent at least a good 3 hours in there by myself.. wishing to buy everything.. wishing that I owned my own house and could design and decorate it as my heart desired!! So i’ve started to tidy my place up a bit.. At the moment the bowls have chips, every plate is a different design, the saucepans have had the teflon scraped to shreds.. So I’m on a mission to slowly but stylishly update my place!! I bought wooden coat-hangers, 4 white bowls, a new knife, fork and spoon set. I still need to buy a new cutlery holder, white plates, mugs, cups, glasses, saucepan. I bought 4 new towels, 1 blue, 1 green, 1 yellow and 1 white. I bought a new pillow.. I need to buy more as spares for when people come and stay over.. I also want to buy a mini ironing board. I can live with doing ironing on a table with a towel, but it’s kind of annoying… I also want to do something about the clothes storage space in my wardrobe.. it just seems not practical at the moment.

So also I went to Nagoya for the weekend. This is the 2nd time i’ve been there this year. Again I got to catch up with Ken-chan and Hentai no kami-sama Ryo-kun! It was good, but I really wish I could stay there for longer than just the weekend!! From now I will be a bit busy with studying for JLPT and preparing to go to Taiwan and Tokyo (and possibly Kagoshima if Shuhei writes back to me).. Anyway, I really miss those guys in Nagoya.. I wish we were all UNI students again like back in Armidale and go drinking, hang out, go for drives~ watch Attention Please…

Well.. also I got new glasses! Yep, and it was cheap, fast and very efficient to get in Japan! I was so surprised and it was like 1/3 of the price compared with Australia, and that’s going to places like Budget eyewear that claim to have low prices! So the reason I got new glasses was because I entered the public bath with my glasses on. Actually, that was fine.. and I’ve done that many times before.. what stuffed my glasses up was going into the actual sauna room, trying to wipe the beads of water off with my towel, and in the process of doing that, I rubbed the protective layer of my lenses… T_T very sad.. but it led to a good thing.. I’ve wanted glasses like this for years!! ^_^

I’ve noticed that I didn’t use any Japanese in this blog… I wonder how I will go for the JLPT which is like 2 weeks away?!?! I hope I can pass… but if not, then I guess it’s going to be June/July next year! 勉強がめんどいやけど、日本で日本語をしゃべらなきゃいけへん!ファイト!!
