Since my mom passed, I’ve been working with an alternative energy therapist to maintain mental and emotional stability. One of the things I’ve been working on is trying not to feel overwhelmed during these two polar opposite events happening in my life, grieving over mom and stressing about moving my whole life over to Japan. My therapist suggested I buy something that I can look at every day that will remind me to stay calm and take things step by step. So yesterday I bought this Kimmi doll (how appropriate right?). There are dozens of different designs and each one represents a different quality. This one’s name is Yuna and her quality is “calm”. May she always be a reminder to stop and take a breath.
Chicago’s Chinatown’s bakeries are a dangerous place to shop. I just want to try one of everything. If you go, try the Hong Kong style egg tart.

So, why are you afraid of change? "
Got a new Rilakkuma / Kokuma change purse at work. Gonna keep all my Japanese yen in it. I think a shopping spree may be in order when I go back to Japan.
Best curry ramen I’ve ever had can be found at Ajiten in Canton, MI. It’s a bowl full of sodium, but lord was it delicious. Now, what’s for dessert?
