And so it has begun.
The semester has ended! Exams ended last week, so there’s no school until the end of October for me. Good time to catch up on sleep.
Last Thursday I went out to eat some celebratory ice creamWe had Baskin Robbins! Lemon mascarpone cheesecake and strawberry cheesecake. Sounds exotic, but it was a nice and refreshing treat. Both scoops had cheesecake bits in them which I really loved.
And then yesterday I had dinner with my whole family for the first time in a while! So we went out.
Xiao long baoI rarely get to eat these, so I ate two.
I might just end up eating my way through this vacationBut I’ll be careful not to do that. I guess I should exercise or things like that. Most of the time I’m just dancing now, so maybe that counts. This vacation I still have work commitments, but since I have a lot more time to myself now I want to be able to do some of the things I enjoy too.
I’ve been waiting for this
Recently I’ve been reading Japanese magazines—they’re good for language learning and editorial inspiration at the same time
I like Seventeen.
Aside from the fashion pages, it’s also strangely addictive reading about their high school life. It’s like, oh, that kind of stuff happens outside manga?And I ended up reading it all night.
It’s a bit far-fetched to think my whole vacation will be like this (i.e. good food, lie-ins and magazines), but I think I should enjoy it when I can. Before the burdens come back next monthSo I will properly relish all forty-eight days.
I need to think about what else I can blog about too
I promise I only tried a little bit.
