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 […]

We were THOSE TOURISTS: we went to the Park Hyatt Hotel’s New York Bar.

Also commonly referred to as ‘the Lost in Translation bar‘. It had to be done. I love the movie, I loved the scenes shot in the bar, and I wanted to see it for myself. It’s not often you get a chance to see filming locations, and after having lived in Baltimore, which shows up […]

I know I’ve been MIA for a while. I’ve been busy living and working WAY too much. I’m going to try to get through all of the posts I’ve got lined up (since May). So, yeah. We went to Kyoto again, and this time it was totally different, and SO MUCH BETTER. We also went […]

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 […]

I tried Wild Fern’s Manuka Honey products

I am going to admit something: I’m not really one to pay attention to beauty products. I don’t read magazines and I don’t own a TV. There’s not a lot of advertising that reaches me lately, especially when you consider the language barrier: my Japanese sucks, so even the ads on the train don’t really […]

Story of my life, reminded in New Zealand

March 12, 2017

No, you won’t be able to come back this way and take that photo tomorrow. This is the story of my life and I think a sound argument against procrastination. Or at least, it’s MY sound argument for why I don’t (read: can’t) procrastinate. Mark gets annoyed with me sometimes because I have a physical need […]
