hanami + urahara

gooddaysir1

How’s it going? I’m in a pretty good mood today! Today was supposed to be my back-to-work day, so I got up and headed to school as usual only to be told to go home and come back Wednesday. Actually I thought things were taking a downturn when I got to the door and realised I had forgotten my key, but I managed to climb through a window (I wonder if any of my neighbours saw) and things were fine, lol.

Finally did some hanami on Saturday! I haven’t done a proper hanami in a couple of years, since last year I wasn’t feelin’ so hot and had to go home after about half an hour.

Yoyogi-koen. Soooo many people. It’s crazy. When you’re walking through the trees you can just hear the decibels rising with every step. We had a lot of fun drinking in the trees, though.

One thing, however, I really wanted to do while I was in the area is take some pictures of my favorite shops. I have a plan to try drawing and watercoloring these later.

I’ll put them here.

Popped in here to buy a really cute necklace, actually.

I’ve never been in here, either, but I have an ancient picture of me in high school standing next to their sign just because of the name.

Another place I’ve never been, but I love these stairs.

I almost never go to actual Takeshita-doori because of the crowds. The last time I tried going there was a Wednesday, so I thought it would be OK, but no. Takeshita-doori is perpetually unmanageable now. And all my favorite shops have packed up and left. :/

Urahara is the best, though. Maybe one of my happy places.

Also popped in for a delicious burrito bowl at Guzman y Gomez.

Anyway, it was a good day. I’ll let you know how the paintings go.

Off to the night job now. Later. 🙂

Happy Humpday everybody! Tried out my new DUP liquid eyeliner and it is shamefully better than the Ettusais cat eye liquid liner I usually buy. D:

And the IF eating is going strong! Broke the fast today with more chicken on salad with quinoa.

If you haven’t tried the new yuzu-style salad chicken at Family Mart… Don’t. It’s nast af. :/

I ended up eating the onigiri as an after school snack.

But anyway!

Sometimes I get lucky at this school and they let me go after lunch. I was headed home, walking through the EST, for a few hours before going back out to meet friends when a dress caught my eye from dazzlin’.

please ignore my zombie face thnx

It’s adorable! Two pieces, and grey camisole-type under dress with the poof-sleeved grey sweat to fit over it. And just as I showed it to the staff girl, she came running back with the cutest and most comfortable rider’s jacket ever.

Long story short, I threw down. Financially, lol

I have actually been wanting a rider’s jacket for a couple of years now, but every time I find one I like it’s either a) too expensive or b) too stiff. This one is faux leather of course, and perfectly flexible and stretchy. Fits great and not a bad price. No regrets. ♡

The tote was a gift for spending over 8000Y, which I really should NOT have done, but I did it anyway and OH WELL NOTHING I CAN DO NOW HAHA

So yea. I’m off to meet some peeps and enjoy the midweek. Cheers!
