Apparently, it's the end of the world "tomorrow" but it's already "tomorrow" in Japan. Shockingly enough, my Boyfriend stopped responding to me at midnight. Is he trying to scare me?! I asked him his thoughts, since Japanese people tend to be very superstitious? He doesn't believe it will end. I agreed, and told him I wanted to be with him if the world did end~ and he replied with: 私も 世界が終わるなら あなたのそばで 終わりたい
How cute is that?! But he basically agreed, and said if the world did end, he wants to be beside me. Unless I am totally mistaken orz
Anyway~ on Monday I went shopping with my Mother! It's always stressful shopping around Christmas time. I ended up buying myself a couple goodies including a purple underwear set! It's so cute, but no way am I taking a photograph of it. I also got myself some fake "Uggs" since Primark are selling them really cheap. I feel a bit of an ass wearing them, but I'm going to attack them and personalise them (hopefully it goes well!). Primark are selling so many "Hipster/Goth" items with studs and crosses on, I kinda dislike it, but it saves me buying from eBay and waiting a millennium for them to arrive. Cute right? I'm going to wear it to the Christmas Party this Saturday along with my VW top and garter belt~ ゴスです！
While I was out shopping I took the chance to get my naval piercing changed. I'm such a scaredy cat, that I had to pay for her to exchange it, and purchase a new bar. I wanted purple, but the closest I could get was fuchsia! So, going to have to look for an 8MM purple bar on eBay, hopefully titanium too. Monday was a horrible day for piercings, once I had this one swapped it felt odd but SO much better since it now finally sits right! But then while eating I managed to loose the ball to my lip piercing, which stressed me the hell out because I had to go back to Blue Banana and ask them just for the ball - they refused, and they didn't have any rings to fit, so I had to purchase a small ring, just to use the ball. I found the ball later in my bag fmal.
The Christmas Party this Saturday will be fun. I'm showing my Family (finally) the photos I have taken from Japan/Yokohama, which will be a royal pain in the ass to explain/talk about, I know. I'm also (not) ready to answer all the 101 Questions asked about my time over there. Weh! I am also hoping on the 24/25 to Skype with my Boyfriend にゃん〜好きよ
Today is １２・１２・１２ which will be the last time we will see a repetitive date like this, especially for a long-long time. It's kind of ominous right? I actually made a wish at １２：１２.. I rushed home just so I could. Who knows if this wish will come true? I hope so~
I wanted to mail my Boyfriend a couple photos of our Christmas trees and decorations~ so I thought about sharing them here and making a blog post, gradually leading up to Christmas perhaps. I am hoping next year to spend Christmas with him, I want to try cook him a small Christmas dinner too, English style! Perhaps I will cook it with his Sister, it would be fun.
The "German" Market is on in the City again, although it's not very "German" in my honest opinion. I took a few photos to send to my Boyfriend. He thought it had snowed, and I had to explain it was fake. I will probably take more of the Market, I'm going again on Monday with my Mother and then hopefully again to meet Sako before Christmas! I am so unprepared this year, as always, lesson never learnt.
My Mother is probably the most festive in our Family. We bought an even LARGER tree this year, it's only inches from touching the ceiling too. I need to take a more updated photo, because there's even more decorations. My Mother will also always leave a bit of Christmas in each room, usually even the toilet gets a Christmas tree, but this year it hasn't - but most rooms now have something festive inside it (apart from mine, I refused).
More decorations, and still incomplete room, this was obviously taken on the 4th of December, although I'm lazy and never update that, I think it still says "17 DAYS TO GO!!" I'm so excited for Christmas, but I am more excited for the New Year! My Friend received his Advent Calender in Japan late November, and I was sent a photo of him with it. I'm so happy, because he gets a tiny piece of tradition that's not so popular in Japan! This is why I want to celebrate Christmas next year with them all.
PS: I got a new phone; so I have all these amazing hipster apps that allow me to become a "professional photographer".. no I just have better camera quality. I also have INSTAGRAM!!
So while I was browsing through my blog stats, I noticed a lot of the recent blog readers had come from one persons blog in particular... That's when I discovered I had been tagged and nominated for 'One Lovely Blog Award' I got tagged by Dizzy-chan!! Thank you! ( ´▽｀)
★ Post the award image on your blog post/sidebar/page.
★ Link the person who has awarded you.
★ Post 7 random things about you.
★ Nominate other 15 relatively new blogs.
Seven random things about me:
★ I actually suffer from ornithophobia, which is the fear of birds. I'm mainly scared of big birds like herons, cranes, geese, swans and birds of prey like vultures or eagles. I also dislike owls and turkeys, so much.
★ My eye colour changes, which confused my Friends in Japan. I naturally have hazel eyes which was hard to describe to them, so I settled for green, only to be told they were yellow/gold. Then black... uhm?
★ After being in Japan for 3 months and hardly travelling in a car, I now get motion/travel sickness whenever I'm in a car. I suffered from it horribly when I was younger, and I hoped it wouldn't ever come back. Not nice.
★ I used to run - a lot. I came in the top 20 out of 200 Girls running for my School in a Nation Wide Cross Country competition. But I held myself back for the sake of my Friends and regret it ever since, but lesson learned!
★ I originally loved Chinese culture before educating myself about Japan. British Schooling system rarely covers anything Japanese. Chinese and Japanese cultures are the only types in which I find fascinating. I have no interest in anywhere else.
★ During my Art exam, I thrived to do work completely different from everyone else. I changed my idea five times during my prep work, and at the last minute changed again and rushed my final piece, thus I failed. Art was my strongest subject too.
★ Stitch is my favourite Disney character, closely followed by Wall-E although I feel Wall-E is actually an under appreciated movie as it is one of Disney's most educating movies they have produced. Think about it.
(*゜‐゜) Recently, everyone I know seems to be getting sick. It's making me nervous because I'm the only person in this household to not get a cold or similar symptoms yet either. So really, I guess taking Vitamin C daily does help? I hope.
The other week I went shopping with my Mother, after finally deciding that it was time to buy new bathroom items. I had left nearly everything at my Boyfriend's apartment, so who knows what will be left when I go back? Unless he wants to use my face products (as they were from daiso). Anyway I really-really love 'massage sponges' with the harder side for exfoliating and it's amazing. The shower puffs are also ideal for gentle exfoliating~
When I was shopping in daiso with my Boyfriend, we were looking at toiletries for the bathroom and there was a massage sponge that was the equivalent of rubbing a house brick on your skin! Maybe I will buy one considering they're 105¥ ～(´ー｀～)
Oh I also got distracted by nail varnish, originally I was going to buy the crackle type in purple, however when I was in Japan, I had given myself a cute manicure with blue glitter that faded gradually away from the tip and I loved it. So I want to try in purple! ﾟ+.(･∀･)ﾟ+.ﾟ
I've been bad with spending - though they are well calculated purchases! So hush. I got a replica Vivienne Westwood shirt from eBay, I love it.
Recently eBay has had 3 'Free Listing' weekends in a row, and sadly I have become addicted to listing nearly everything that is worthy enough to sell. ⊂⌒~⊃｡Д｡)⊃ OHNO~ although I enjoy creating space in my room and I give my belongings a good home too!
