that time in atami

 So this definitely happened over a month ago buuuut...I'm posting it now. Predictable.

I haven't been to the beach since Tateyama almost two years ago and really needed the vacation so off to Atami! Super picture heavy, sorry about that.

We were supposed to go only Saturday but I wanted to do some sightseeing so I went down a day earlier with my friend Ebony. It was really nice to just relax and we spent most of the day walking around through town towards the beach.

bon-chan ♡


Spent the rest of the night on the beach until it got dark. Atami is so beautiful at night.

Then some people started shooting fireworks that got a little too close so we headed back to the hotel--which you can't even see from the beach, by the way--we were that far. Who knew this part was literally the only beach in this area.

mii-chan & aya ♡

Despite the impending doom of rainfall, I remained stupidly optimistic and met up with my friends the next morning. It then started pouring and since we figured the bikini's wouldn't make their grand entrance that day, decided to eat a huge lunch.

We decided to go to the beach anyway and, voila. Here comes the sun. Kind of regretted a huge lunch after that but, Murphy's Child you know. Not long after setting up our beach towels we were picked up by that magical person up there. 

"Come on, let's go! Yeaaaah let's go bitch!"

I'm aware you were trying to make a beach/bitch joke but lolwat. Could have been sketchy but honestly wasn't. They were decent guys and took us out for a ride on their jet skis. 

So much fun, OMG. 

Our driver (guy in the last photo with my friend and I) was insane and drove super fast and in circles and he was just crazy and lulzy and hilarious, tbh. Never been out on a jetski so was a super fun first experience for me. Well, not on the ocean anyway. Lakes in Georgia don't really count.

aya, mittan, me, & miichan: bug children

They asked us to go to some tiny island in the distance for some dinner and drinks but it was like, "Thanks but we have plans!" Nice guys and I'm sure it would've been fine but, eh. You never know. Ended the day with more walking and finally found an onsen. Perfeeeeeect.

And now after this I'll have a week's worth of photos of my parents visiting me in Japan to edit. Yaaaaaaaaaaay.

Hello and welcome to the most delayed blog ever. :D

Normally I just let things pass as they get too far in the past but I'm waiting for my next episode of Jensen Ackles Swag to load--and by that I mean, Supernatural--and I reaaaaally wanted to post about my darling dish coming to visit Tokyo a few weeks ago!


This is going to be the name of my band :D

Sarah arrived Sunday night and we promptly headed over to HOOTERS with Jessi. We had wings and diced steak as well but we actually ate it too fast to get a photo, haha.


Monday was a national holiday which meant no work and the promise of waking up early to meet some of our friends at the beach. Unfortunately I have horrible time management, Sarah's isn't much better and when you put us together it's basically like punching Father Time in the face. :D

So with morning Starbucks and teal nails to match we headed off to Zushi!

I am actually translucent :D

After some mishaps involving wrong trains we made up for it with delicious-but-almost-too-hot-to-eat tacoyaki and finally...

Zushi Beach!

Tiny tiny legs! XDD

I found a Beach Goth! I love that Caroline comes to the beach in full black X3

I love the beach but I'm actually not huge on swimming because I literally always manage to get bit by something when I get in the water. Fish, crab, stung by a stingray? Yeah Murphy's Law, the ocean and I don't get along.

After a few hours we hurried back to Shibuya to see a show at Milkyway I'd been invited to.

Sarah's dramatic appearance 8D
Unfortunately Milkyway, which is my favorite venue of all time by the way, didn't seem to be using the aircon so we headed next door to Mobo・Moga for dinner.

♡♡♡ doesn't even cover it

Aaand two beers and an entire taco-rice later and I was drunk. Honestly I have no alcohol tolerance whatsoever. Even when eating a plate for two. Whoops.

We've changed so much in two years, clearly.


Sarah had a show in Yokohama and I had to work so I went headed out to Sakuragi-cho as soon as I got off to meet Caroline for dinner before we met up with Sarah.

桜木町 is actually one of my favorite places ever

Looks disgusting but was actually delicious XD

Does this make you want to eat at Hard Rock? Didn't think so. DD:

I love 桜木町 so much. Even though I haven't lived in Yokohama since the end of the 2010, somehow it still feels really familiar and comfortable. I love the area, the atmosphere and since the three of us have all lived in Yokohama at some point, we're all kind of tied to it somehow ♡


Aka the day that we slept almost all day and the only successful thing we managed was gyoza and Krispy Kreme. I'm amazed I didn't gain more weight that week. XD


Sarah's last day! I had to work again so I headed over to meet her and Caroline at Sbarro for dinner before we sent her off to her bus.

Even thought it was only about a month since I'd seen her in Osaka, it was so great to see Sarah in Tokyo again. Hard to believe we've known each other since 2007-2008 and even harder to believe that it's already been two years since we were in Tokyo together back in 2010. Sometimes I feel like we were such different people back then and other times I feel like we haven't changed at all.

Either way I can't wait until I visit Osaka again or she comes back here!
