Yes. I met up with Rina at Seijo and we walked to her place to wait for Yuuki, Ryuji (sp? x___X), and Tomo.
We drove for about 30 minutes before stopping at a huge food court building. We needed foodies for such an adventure!
Yuuki told me that Hokkaido (I think) is very famous for their Melon bread and since some was sold where we were, I should definitely have some. I'm so glad I did.
Tomo let me try an inside-out-eggroll-tasting-pancake thing. It was pretty delicious too. And then Ryuji let me try some chicken thing on a stick. It was really crunchy and I asked Rina what the crunch was. She said it was bone. O___O WUT. And then she saw my expression and said it was okay to eat. Oh gosh. Plz, never again.
Outside the food court was more food places.
We went back to the car after eating and me thinking I should get more melon bread. There seemed to be a traffic jam IN the parking lot. What was going on? Apparently, there had been an accident on the freeway. We sat there in the parking lot for about an hour - an hour and a half. We slowly made our way out and were on the way! Slowly. Very. Slowly.
Me, Tomo, and Rina on the way ^___^:
I get so sleepy on long car rides but told myself how rude it would be to fall asleep. So...sleepy...XD
But this is probably your typical Zoo Adventure Blog Post, spamming animal pictures.
Entering the unknown...a.k.a. the bear zone.
Camels hanging out by a bus:
KANGAROO FIGHT ACTION SHOT.
(SHOT WITH IPOD GENERATION 4, ORIGINAL LENS.)
I got a salibury-steak-tasting burger patty with potato wedges, corn, and rice. I didn't realize I had to pay more when she asked me if I wanted bread or rice. Tricks played on foreigners! I warn you!
Getting home was pretty slow too. Yuuki said there must have been another accident. And I didn't even buy anything this time! So now I know that it's not buying something that correlates with these accidents. lolol. Oh dear.
It was really an awesome day though. They didn't even make me pay for my ticket. I couldn't believe it. ^___^
To Wednesday (today) though! I've been mainly studying. Oh, on Monday, I went to the gym after class because I thought we would be just running for track practice. When I met up with Yuuki later on, he said we were going to the gym 'cause he promised me that we would so I could train them XD. Oh gosh. Second trip! Not a bad thing at all.
I was able to do a set of 66 lb. bench presses with the team. I was pretty proud of being able to lift what they did. Then, Yuuki's turn came and he lifted in about 1/4 of the time. Gah! And they added about 22 more pounds. I could only do 1. haha, but I still did one!
And then I was showing them some circuit training moves and we were all in a circle in the tiny machine room doing them. It was so funny. They seemed pretty wiped out after. ^___^'
Tuesday and today, I went to class, studied, worked out, and have been going to the Library. I really love studying in the library, actually. A lot less distractions. I feel like my MoMo =] I even did some extra homework today. ikr, so Josie Grossie.
In training class today, I had written down a bunch of exercises to do and got through them all, plus some. I was shadowboxing in the mirror and then turned around and everyone was staring at me. Everyone. Was Staring at me. I'm like, "Hi!". It was a great workout though. I feel like it's been awhile since I've felt I really worked hard. Maybe I've been using too heavy of weights to work with and get tired too fast. Def pos.
I had lunch with Mitchell, Yuuki, and got to meet Kazuya today! He does kickboxing professionally and has matches every 2 or so months, as long as he hasn't hurt himself. He said he would bring me and Mitchell to his kickboxing lesson sometime! I'm so excited. Maybe sometime next week.
Oh! And I found whole wheat bread. I know I don't really like eating carbs in the form of bread, etc. but I had been craving a PB sammie recently. I bought some other bread that is whole grain, but super thin and small and pricey. Whole grain/whole wheat/Better-for-you bread is really rare in Japan. And if you find some, they sometimes add ingredients like butter. Whyyyy? It was just crazy to be able to find some though.
haha. This was from Monday. That bread packet had 8 pieces. Yeah, really small, man. But it was really delicious! And only 4 or 5 natural ingredients. Toats awesome.
That's it for now! Grant and I are going to be hanging out tonight. It was our anniversary yesterday. Oh goodness ^___^.
