Setting sun over Omura, Nagasaki this evening. T’was a night of classical Japanese music, kind-hearted people, and sushi. This life of mine truly is a fairytale. I am so grateful.
If I ever get a Master’s degree, it’s going to be in mastering the art of Japan’s かわいい pastries. Damn it, everything is so cute here.
Japanese supermarkets have all the colors of the rainbow. I may or may not be on a mission to try every snack ever produced in this country.
After 3 days of clouds and rain, finally a beautiful day for exploring.

constantly looking forward to my next meal
A “then and now” photo of my new employer (left) and Japanese teacher (right) standing in front of their old elementary school. They’ve known eachother since they were 5 years old and have maintained a strong friendship, despite having lived in different countries for the past 10 years.
It is because of these 2 that I get to start a new life in Japan, and I am eternally grateful.
Belated hello from my new home in Nagasaki. It has been a long journey to get here, but I finally made it. Will be moving into my new apartment this weekend (photos to follow) and will be ready for guests soon thereafter.
For now, enjoy this beautiful view from my host’s balcony.
Taken today at Nagoya’s Osu Kannon.
Can’t believe it has been almost 4 months since Mom passed away. My heart is particularly heavy tonight as I say goodbye to my friends, family, and the house I spent the last 15 years growing up in. I have a million things left to say, but for now, thank you…for everything.
