So, here I am, in Tokyo. Jackie is staying with me for a couple weeks, and we're recording some sweet sweet sounds together! Classes start next week, which i am SO psyched about. Its weird being back in this city, which is a solitary and crowded and fast paced kind of intense, after being in Austin for a month and living spiritually and emotionally and active kind of intense. I really prefer the latter. Intensely interacting with my friends, reading poetry to each other, hiking down to the greenbelt to study and swim and drink beer with strangers, feeling most days like I was bursting with sunshine because of so much nature and rain and family and friends. Couchsurfing around Austin and writing and creating, studying, being out in the sun and the rain everyday, coffee shops, recycling, bbqs, intense and short lived romantic flings, music music music everywhere. Wow what a time I had. But I feel like I'm carrying all of that love and living inside me like a beacon against the tired anxious zombiness that was creeping into me all last semester, and I keep reminding myself to keep living and writing and making music and feeling the autumn under my skin and and ribcage. Er, I don't really know what else to say. I will put up some of my recent writing and music later, when I'm not actually at work ^^;;
Here I am, back in Tokyo again. Classes start next week, and I'm working non-stop until then. I'm so psyched about my classes this semester! Anyway, I'll make a more meaningful update soon, sorry I've been outta commission for the past few weeks! Miss Austin so much already >.<
Well friends, sorry about no updating there for a while. Things are a little rocky now, what with being in the middle of two weeks of finals, presentations, and term papers. Not to mention gigs every saturday and sunday. Also, working most days of the week, and GOTTA find time to transfer those credits before the end of the semester.
My ray of hope.
Yeah, I know, I'm pretty pathetic, but after ten years of growing up with these books and being super involved with them, the end of the series is finally at hand. So I'm pulling through to get my Harry Potter book, then a little more school, then summer starts and I can just work, gig, and spend time with my friends. (aka spend time with Emmie) :D
I'm so excited.
Then, in mid-august, I can come back to the states for a month! YAY!
Otherwise, we are about to be hit by a typhoon, this weekend. Also, I have caught a cold.
Also, I have finally taken the big leap. I've given up fish, I'm a full vegetarian now. I just couldn't take it anymore. I thought being able to eat fish would make it easier to live here, but instead, because I was eating fish so frequently because its in everything, it just made me feel ill, and begin to hate it. So, I feel so much better now that its out of my diet.
Thats all for now, over and out.
I was walking down the road at uni today, and I walked past a bunch of Japanese girls standing in a circle around something, giggling and pointing and shrieking. Curious, my friend Kayo and I peered around to see what it was that had them all excited. It was a peach. On the ground. There were at least 10 girls standing in a circle, raising hell and shrieking because of a peach.
Then, I came home, and passed out for 4 hours because my body shut off without my permission.
On my way home, a raindrop hit me on the nose, and then clung there on the tip. It made me chuckle.
Now, I must go explore Meguro, and find a grocery and a 100 yen shop. Yes, I've moved to the new house in meguro. I will take photos and upload them tomorrow, because I haven't moved all my bags yet and so I don't have my digital camera and its too dark for my phone camera.
Ohhhhhh man wanna go back to sleep.
