Three days ago, I was contemplating on going to either a new place or venturing around a place I had already been. So, I decided to do both. First, I stopped at a place I've never been to before, Ikebukuro. Grant told me it was pretty much a mini-Shinjuku, and I'd have to agree after going there.
Beth would love this shop:
And then there was this shop:
Booo, this was closed until later this year.
I was just like
I've been hooked on Once Upon a Time and have been watching that. Oh gosh.
Yesterday, I went to the gym, ate lunch, and then headed out to meet with Yuuki and Kazuya at school. We wanted to get together to plan on when to go to Tsukiji for some fresh sushi and then venture to Odaiba. With both of their busy schedules, it looks like we'll be going in about 2 weeks. I'm pretty darn pumped. ^___^
We sat and talked for a long time. They ate lunch and Yuuki wanted to practice speaking English. Here's what his obentos look like:
He had bought a book to help with his vocabulary:
lolol. Kazuya had to go study, so Yuuki and I talked a bit more. He found out I had Chrono Trigger for the DS in English and really wanted to play, so I told him he could borrow it. We headed over to my place to go and pick it up.
I also lent him Pokemon Sapphire. He tried playing on the saved file that I had been playing on, but when he turned it on, I only had 2 pokemon. One was a level 8 Zigzagoon that I named Venonat and the other was an unhatched egg. What was going on?! I had 4 badges already. I'm not sure what happened to the rest of my Pokemon...they weren't in my PC either.
lolol. So weird. The egg hatched while we were walking around though. I was hoping my game glitched out and it would end up being Mew.
So anyways! Yuuki read my books "I Want My Hat Back", in Japanese, and "This is Not My Hat", in English, that I have here. He discovered that the snake in IWMHB talks about seeing a blue, circular hat, but not the bear's red cone hat. The blue, circular hat it describes is the hat that's in TINMH! Oh man. So awesome. George R.R. Martin has some competition with all of these connections Jon Klassen is making in his sequels.
I had to kick Yuuki out (lolol, kidding, I walked with him to the station) since I had to get ready to go out to karaoke with some of the exchange students. It was ~Bruno Mars edition~ since his concert sold out. I'm still not over that. XD
I was excited to be able to dress up (sort of) for the night. I'm usually just in my Nike gear all the time now ^___^'. (Therma-fit is the best.)
I wasn't able to capture Evan dancing, but my favorite part of the night was probably when Evan and Tom sang and jigged to "Milkshake."
It was really exciting when Tom told me I had a good voice and should turn the mic up and later on, Sabrina said she liked my voice. I feel like that's one of the best compliments, when someone says they like my singing voice.
I think I may have scared them when I sang/screamed "I'm So Sick" by Flyleaf though...lolol. ^__^'
Yeah! We did about two hours of karaoke and then I headed back and watched more of Once Upon a Time. I had also received an email saying that the Seijo grade school is having a mochi-making party and that 5 of us are invited to go. So, I guess I'm going to be going to that in a few days. ^___^' I love all of the random events they give us ()(^.^)().
Now on a random note:
If you guys are having muscle pain from working out or anything really, try adding a tsp of Tumeric to your cooking. I had read in a few places that it has healing properties and is great for anti-inflammatory purposes, but wow, it really works. I've had way less muscle soreness, if any, when waking up the next day after working out since adding it to my diet. Yay!
Okay, peace out homeslices ^__~.
