Ah, what the heck happened yesterday? I took another rest day yesterday ()(>.<)(). My mind and body felt so tired. I think all the adventures are catching up to me. NoOooO, there's time for rest later! Haha, but anyhoo, I'm glad I did.
I went to school to help Christian with the final translation ^___^. We got to talk for awhile after, about things like Harry Potter. He had never seen all of the movies! Ridiculous. So, I busted home and picked up my DVDs, headed back and gave them to him. He must be educated! XD I'll never forget the confused and O_O face that he had. I didn't know how to take it at first, wondering if he was okay, haha. But he seemed really happy! Just really shocked. ^__^'
The other people working there had even set out some tea and some dessert for us.
But yeah! By the time Christian and I were done talking, it had been too late to meet up with some of the other exchange students at the Yomiuri amusement park. I was so tired by then, it ended up being a good thing for me. ^__^'
I just went around town for a bit, picked up the last few presents for some people, and headed home. While I was resting it up, there were a bunch of sirens going off for about an hour. There were also a few helicopters in the sky. I opened my window and it smelled like smoke outside. I then went outside and the roads looked a bit foggy. I walked around for a bit, but then went back home. I asked Naomi about it today and she said that a sort-of famous person's pretty expensive house had been on fire in Soshigaya, the place right by Seijo. Man, if I could smell the smoke from here, it must have been pretty bad.
Oh, there are twitter pics:
Let us move on to today. After going to the gym, I met up with Yuuki, Mitchell, and Naomi in Shinjuku ^___^. Before going to the Shinjuku Gyoen Garden, we went to a pretty darn awesome yakiniku restaurant for lunch.
We passed this along the way to the restaurant, but it was closed =[.
This was our view:
Mitchell couldn't get enough of the fresh lemon scent of the warm towel, which we later renamed a bathroom smell. XD
In the middle of the building, this guy was looking for some yakiniku:
Some of us may have brought our bibs with us. We were hoping that the workers would be very confused as to why there were only 2 bibs remaining at the table.
Do you see that magical rainbow that snuck in the shot?ERRRAAAAWWRRR.
I should have taken more shots! Haha, but we were able to sample about 15 different kinds of chocolates. There was also a Godiva stand and I have to say, Godiva's flavor and quality was my favorite.
After sampling a bunch, we went our separate ways at the station. I decided to walk around Shinjuku a bit more and stopped at the Hello Kitty store and such before heading home.
Tomorrow, I plan to go to the gym and do whatever the heck I feel like. lolol. I have plans for the next few days, so this will be nice to be able to do what I want ^____^. w00f!
