Random Stuff

Working full time has me wondering how grown-ups manage this life thing... I have to start teaching fewer English classes after work because I feel like I have no time for anything lately!

Looks like I'll be able to make a trip back to California around the end of June. The main purpose is to have my remaining two wisdom teeth removed, which isn't exactly my idea of a vacation.

Last Saturday I went to see a doctor of Chinese alternative medicine. Souichirou often sees this person for back trouble, and we went together. I have no idea what the methodology was...Something to do with Qi. I think the doctor felt for points with a lot of stress...and then took the stress away? I don't know how it worked, but my back felt a lot better after.

Also the clinic was on an island, and it was really good to get away from the city for a while.

The Weekend

So the weekend was really busy, but here are a few pics I stole from Mom's blog. Hahaha

Finally got a chance to see the Sweets Festival in Hiroshima before it left. Some of the structures were pretty amazing!

This pic of all of us at the Okonomiyaki restaurant makes me squee... I guess being in a small room with the boyfriend and the parents is not the easiest thing in the world. But I'm glad everyone had fun!

Flower Festival

Some Hula dancers from Hawaii.

School children performing a synchronized dance. The little ones had no idea what they were doing, which was hilarious to watch. The older ones were pretty good, though.

 In the Peace Park, there was a giant pyramid of flowers. And some giant paper cranes!

This week

This last week has been pretty rough... I'm still just praying I can get through it alive and pick up the pieces on the other side.

I think the problem with trying to do what feels like the right thing is sometimes you feel really crappy and there's no way to change it. At least if you follow some code you're not responsible when things turn out crappy.

Anyway I took some pics last weekend at the Hiroshima flower festival. Uploading soon!

A little late, but here are some pics from the trip to the zoo last Saturday. Great way to kick off Golden Week!
