It has now been three full weeks of adulting and maybe unsurprisingly, no big changes have happened since last week. I think this will be my last weekly update and instead, I’ll do monthly updates, unless I find something really interesting in my spreadsheet or make a drastic change.
About a month ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Hokkaido with my mama and aunty! It’s been almost 8 months since I’ve last seen them and it was great to be with my family again! We stayed mostly in Sapporo and had a very relaxing and leisure-filled vacation.
It has been two weeks since I’ve started adulting. The past week was my first week back to work after a long, dearly missed summer vacation. I started work again last week Thursday, so it was interesting to see how my normal spending compared to my spending during the summer.
I’ve been using Bobbi Brown’s Vitamin Enriched Face Base for about a week now, so I thought I’d do a review on it. I’ve been using this primer for over two years and I still love it!
By now, if you are like me, you are aware of Elite Daily’s column, “Confessions Of A True Fuckboy,” a weekly column devoted to explaining what goes on in a fuckboy’s mind. I will admit that I find some the articles within this column very amusing, but after reading “Confessions Of A Fuckboy: What Guys Really Think About Marriage,” I was very annoyed.
It has been exactly a week since I’ve started this adulting thing. And even though it has only been a week, I think I have made some progress!
As a young woman at the age of 23, soon to be 24, I have decided to begin life as an adult. By this, I don’t mean living on my own, having a full-time job, paying for all of my bills on my own (for the most part, anyway), making sure I eat enough fairly nutritious food to keep breathing, and drinking enough beer to make up for all of you 21+ year-old fools that don’t drink enough on your own. I particularly excel at that last one, but who am I to judge my own drinking abilities?!
For almost a year, I’ve been riding the train with a less than attractive high school couple (well the girl is in high school because she wears a uniform, but the boy? in college? high school drop out?), that clearly like each other very much. Every morning, I ride the same train and get on the same car, and so do they. And every morning, I stare at them, while silently judging them. At first, I thought, “You guys are way too young to be in a relationship, focus on school!” Then, I began to think, “Oh, you guys need to shut the fuck up. And gross, no one wants to see your PDA.” Then, I grew oddly attached to them and began to think, “Oh, you guys are kind of cute. Do your thang.”
Today, I came across a few “How Much is my Face Worth?” posts and it made me really curious about how much my “daily face” is worth. I LOVE MAKEUP. I know I have a major spending problem when it comes to makeup and I admit that I probably spend more on it than I should. But, who’s keeping track, right? Oh right, I am, that’s what this post is all about.
This one’s just for shits and giggles. So please, don’t be offended. If you know me at all, you know I’m a sarcastic bitch. 🙂
One of the things that never ceases to amaze me about Japan is how EVERYONE is interested in my marital status. At every school I have taught at, at some time throughout my first day, someone has asked me if I’m married. And not just the students, the teachers, too!
“Do I have to go today?” Every morning. Never fails. I ask myself how important my role is in the education of Japan’s future. I always conclude that my role is very small, and they most likely won’t remember a quarter of what I teach them in a year from now, but I still force myself to go…
