Posts about Life can contain a whole range of things like what I was doing 5 years ago to what I had for dinner last night (though that may not always be the most interesting tale). It’s a very umbrella-like category.


Goodbye April, Hello May

Goodbye April, Hello May

2017 May 2 · Life

April was a fair month, and it wasn’t too busy. I got to see one of my favorite bands — Bastille — in concert for the second time, which was the first time I’ve ever seen a band for a second time! Honestly, I didn’t have any severe post-concert sadness. I’m still suffering from the One Ok Rock concert in Los Angeles since I think about it everyday.

I hung out with friends a lot this month, and I’m so glad. I’ve had a hard time up until this year when it came to friends, but meeting S & C has really changed things for me.

I've mentioned before that learning Japanese has opened new doors for me in a lot of different ways, including introducing me to new and incredible people. Recently, I met one of the girls who's also studying abroad with me in Japan!

I turned 20 yesterday! It's a strange feeling to turn twenty. I'm entering a new decade! I'm a "twenty-something" now, and I'm joining those people that always talk about feeling "lost" and unsure of themselves. I'd like to think I have at least some things figured out, but I know better than to think that's completely true.

It's so weird to be back after 5 weeks away from school, but I'm beyond excited for this new semester! Not only am I taking classes that interest me, but these next few months will be full of preparation for Japan — meetings, visas, applications... 🇯🇵
