Nikko has kind of been ruined for me :(

October 20, 2017

I love Nikko. It’s great! It’s a straight shot north on one of a few different trains you could take from Tokyo. It’s small. It’s hike-able. It’s got a lot of great places that are NOT Toshogu that are absolutely amazing (and often, free!). But in May, we made the mistake (if you can call […]

We went to Fuji Rock and it was…

Wonderful is the wrong word. It was everything. It was perfect. It has ruined every other future festival concert for me. We’ve been to other concerts here. Mark and I have both been to plenty of festival concerts in plenty of countries. I went to my first festival concert when I was 15. I saw […]

This is a post about our Honeymoon (part 1)

I’ve been meaning to write about it. I WANT to write about it. I just don’t know where to start, or how to talk about it. There is literally too much to write about. At first I thought I might write 14 posts for 14 days. But some days weren’t that amazing, and I don’t think […]

It’s like being stuck on a level in a game, and I can’t move up. I’ve been thinking about this for a while now, and it’s really not 100% true in all situations (which I will explain a little further down), but it seems like as far as teaching English as a second language (ESOL) […]

trying to be green

January 18, 2017

0

One of the things I’ve been trying to do lately is be MORE green than I already am. In my new year’s goals for 2017, I mentioned not wanting to contribute to animal cruelty and go vegan in my cosmetics when possible. This is an extension of that: We also want to stop being so […]

JUST AFTER I’d given my Daruma full sight…

December 7, 2016

I don’t feel the need to get TOO involved with most of Japan’s customs. I ‘pray’ at shrines because it feels disrespectful not to, and take my shoes off when I get home. But the one that I have whole-heartedly taken on is the use of daruma, which many of my friends will attest to […]
