Hello Kitty everywhere!It’s been forever since I’ve written a blog. I keep wanting to go to an internet cafe, but this past week and a half or so has been pretty busy. I will try later this weekend. Right now I’m at the business support center next to my apartment, using internet for a few minutes before I go to work to start my day at the usual 1PM. Yes, that is pretty sweet.

Please look at the photo on the left. This decent-looking picture taken with my cell phone, when I wasn’t using it to watch morning weather report videos or using its GPS and digital compass to guide me to the nearest convenience store. OK that’s a lie. There are conbinis everywhere, so you don’t need the GPS for that.

The Hello Kitty tissues you see are sickeningly cute, right? Just like everything in this country. But yeah, I didn’t get those at the Sanrio store or anything (as if I would). No, the freaking BANK gave me these as a gift when I opened an account there a few weeks ago. Just goes to show you that Japan has no shame when it comes to cute crap.

I will write more later. Things are good here. I have a few mini-stories, nothing major at all. One funny story is about how I almost puked on the train because some girl passenger has the worst breath I have ever smelled in my entire life. But that story will have to wait until this weekend.
