I mainly feel restless, the trip overseas has awoken the travel bug inside me once again and all I want to do is go out and see what amazing things the world has to offer me. I'll get started on some actual posts about my time in Vietnam and Cambodia, but those will likely take a while to write up. So I'm writing this update so that y'all know I haven't forgotten, I am just not busy, which means I can't get anything done. I guess I am an "all-or-nothing" sort of person.
|I love you.|
There are a few things coming up that I am looking forward to. Spring is starting in Hokkaido, finally, and we will have sakura blooming in the next week, which means hanami (flower viewing parties)! This is probably my favorite time because everything just gets really beautiful and full of color after months and months of white. Hokkaido acutally gets the sakura a month after the rest of Japan, so it's something that I wait for anxiously while seeing my friends on other islands enjoying the flowers while it's still snowing here. Though, the sakura usually correspond with Golden Week, which is a string of national holidays that usually equate to nearly a week of vacation time for (almost) every Japanese person, so I will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the flowers with friends and drink under the falling pettles. Romantic!

The one thing I have been sort of productive with these last two weeks is the photographs I took while on vacation. Shortly before I left for Vietnam and Cambodia I bought myself a Nikon D3300 and I was able to get a number of great shots at the places we visited. I've gone through all the pictures and added my favorites to my "new" Flickr account! You can check it out below!
My cookie Frappacino has started to turn into mush, so I should focus on that instead of this before it becomes to gross to drink! I hope you are all having a great start to Spring! I'll try and get a post up about Vietam and Cambodia (maybe a few) ASAP. Enjoy the good weather because it'll be winter again before you know it!
Bonus shot of my writing station today. Whooooooo~
Oh god the bottom of this Frappacino is just really soggy cookie this is disgusting yet delcious. I am conflicted.
