My life, stories and shenanigans from Japan

Time for an update

Well, it’s been over a month since my last blog post.  I feel I’ve failed you all at posting regularly.  It’s just been so refreshing not having to post on my blog all the time.

I’m doing quite fine.  I recently had a lot of stress built up from school (long story short, Japan isn’t always open to things that are different, that including foreigners.  I wrote a huge blog post but removed it within about 10 minutes.) I’m better now, though, and have gotten to spend a lot of time with friends of recent which makes me happy.  I’m sad to have to leave them in 2 months.

Well, to make this blog post the least bit interesting, I’m going to share one more thing I’ve tended to over-blog about: Japanese cell phones.  But this is a bit different.   Japanese phones are all about expressing yourself, and Japanese female phones can get pretty crazy at times.   My host mom wanted to make her phone cuter, and thus bought all these small little fake gems and glue and stuff.   I took on the task of painstakingly gluing all the tiny little gems onto her phone, as a sort of gift because she said she didn’t like doing those sort of things.

Phone before:




As goes without mentioning, I’m thankful it’s not my phone. 

It took me a freakin 2 and a half hours to place all the gems.


Picture of the Day #1

I’m starting something I probably won’t follow through with though I’m going to try.

Basically, I’m hoping to post one picture a day from Japan.  Not necessarily from that exact day, as that would be difficult, though just a little something. It’s in addition to just normal posts.

(By the way, I hit day 100 today)

CA3C0017Shibuya -  Sat, 20th of June, 2009

Crazy Shibuya fashion girls. They were actually pretty happy to be in the picture, when I asked them if it was alright, which surprised me.

I hadn’t figured the flash out yet so it’s a bit fuzzy. Darn.

And the heavens shall tremble
