New Blog!

Hey there! I've decided to continue blogging at a different blog. The MEXT archives and some of my travel posts will remain here, but I'll be moving some stuff over. Hope to see you there!

Pre-Christmas Update

Hey everyone!! Hope you're all in holiday mode, since Christmas is LESS THAN A WEEK AWAY. (I have no idea why I put that in caps. I guess it finally hit me Christmas is coming. Go Christmas songs!)

Anyway, updates on what I've been up to, and why I've been so quiet. My cousins came to Fukuoka, so my mom showed them around before she went home, and then I showed them around after she went home. We managed to go to Kumamoto for the weekend, which was really fun. I'll probably do a quick post, this week, since I do have stuff I want to share (although it'd be my nth time posting about Kumamoto hahaha.) I think there was some new stuff too, but I can't quite remember what it is. Oh, and I went to see the illuminations at Huis Ten Bosch with Ben this week. Definitely a photo post coming up soon :D

Oh, oh, oh! And I got a copy of the DVD of the Kimono Fashion Show in Kyoto (Day 1 recap here, and Day 2 recap here). I only screen-grabbed the scene which I was in, because the entire thing is 2 hours long and I don't think they'll be happy if it gets onto Youtube without permission.

For the school side, one of my zemi teachers has entered all of us in an essay contest, and since the topics just came out, we're now rushing to get the essay out in time. We're also doing our best to find a way to link our research topic (Industrie 4.0) with Digital Marketing and Artificial Intelligence. The AI part and Industrie 4.0 is not too bad, since we have the Internet of Things, but the marketing one is going to be a bit of a stretch. So while I want to blog about the trips (which I enjoyed, but also gave me some guilt about not being there for meetings), I may or may not have the time. Everything else on the school front is relatively quiet, like the calm before the storm.

As for the job hunting side of things... let's just say I'm back at square one again. Unfortunately. But I still have six months to go, so I won't be giving up that easily!

So yes, the plenty-of-things paradox has kicked in. I have things to blog about, but no time to blog. I shall see if I can make more time in the upcoming week.

Have a good Christmas week everyone! I'll end with a random photo I took recently:
