hello monday?

*ignore my dorky sleep face*
I finally bought the flower dress. I walked by it everyday for a week & finally got it and Pearls! Cuz I like this outfit from nuts <3

Another nampa approached me when I was walking home Friday after work & tried to get me to double with him on his bike. When I politely refused he asked for my number. no thanks. ok. bye bye. sigh.

I meet with Aya yesterday and we decided on a day.. Feb26 thailand & full moon party!!! I bought sunglasses & a summer dress (not black!!) to celebrate!

It takes all my will to get out of bed before 1pm. That said, it is 2:30pm and Im still in bed.

2 for 500 necklaces

my favorite necklace is the black beaded one. I want to buy a stringy pearl necklace.

I need a new mattress because this one is giving me a pinched nerve in my shoulder.

late nights

It is exhausting taking a taxi home at 3:00am after working all day (First lesson was at 3pm today) when the driver wants to talk & talk & ask question after question. however the driver tonight was very sweet & had visited Canada, plus it is a good opportunity for me to practice my japanese. I am proud of myself, despite being tired I was able to hold a conversation & talk about things from Vancouver to boyfriends hah!


Today I was lucky :)


The weather is so strange, 4 degrees one day then 14 the next!!! At least it is sunny everyday.

Projectile Vomit in a Crowded Train

On Friday the last train was crazy packed as usual. I was coming home from work on Inokashira line and right before my stop, as the train applied the brakes, I was suddenly pushed by the crowd and fell on some sitting people. Then I heard a girl kind of scream. The train was SO crowded you cant move even if you use all force, so I got up off the sitting people said "sumimasen" and then I smelt something strange. The train opened its doors and I turned around to get off. As I turned the first thing I noticed was a girl sobbing wriping her dress, I then looked up and saw a man with vomit on his face and dripping off his nose (this image really sticks with me)! There was chunky vomit all over about 10 people, covering the floor of the train and tracked out the doors onto the platform. It was disguisting. I was lucky I was pushed because if I was only a couple inches closer it would have been all over me. On my way home I was fantasizing about what I would eat when I got off the train, needless to say after that I had completely lost my appetite.
Ooohhh Japan....

no money means no shopping makes Amber a dull girl

All my english students canceled their lessons this week! This means Ive been sleeping & watching a lot of movies & Californication. Since G & judy left I have slowed down on my spending lots.. need to save!

A man told me he liked my nose.. he said you can tell a lot about a persons intentions by their nose, hah!

I need to fix my keyboard asap.. It takes me AGES to type anything!

love love my boots.. just wish they loved my feets.

Perhaps my Karma for always running late is having an English student who can't ever make it to a lesson on time.


There's a hentai in the neighborhood. They stole Gabriele, judy & my underwear & socks and now Shumi's dirty socks out of the washing machine! What the trash?! I mean seriously..
I am actually really upset about my fav. AE undies & the underwear-bra matching set undies disappearance-how can I coordinate
undergarment outfits now!?

I made the decision to start another blog because Im feeling disconnected from my beloveds, specially those in Canada. Im hoping this will be another way to stay&feel connected. Dont expect great significance in my posts, they will mainly consist of random blurbs, rants & photos. Enjoy (^o^)

Water was spilt on my macbook and now approx. 12 keys dont work! Im gonna give it time and pray all the keys come back to life. In the meantime typing is tedious & frustrating because I have to copy & past all the keys that dont work (which are nybmhj?6).

After a absolutely lovely new years, both Gabriele & judy went back to Canada. I miss them so much, more than I could have anticipated. I am very grateful to have such amazing friends who were able to come see me <3
