Just Living Life

I haven’t written anything in awhile. I’ve kind of gotten used to how things work around here so I’m finding less things that are notable to write about. That said, EVERYTHING is notable. This country has tons of interesting things to show, so I’m going to write about that.

About two weeks ago, we had a typhoon come through town. Whenever typhoons come they kind of ruin the weekend because going outside isn’t really an option. You get soaked no matter what and the wind and rain makes it an all-around miserable experience. It was, however, the perfect weather to go see a movie inside, so my coworker Ayano and I went to go see Transformers 3 (It came out forever ago, but I finally got around to seeing it).

This is me and Ayano with a Lexus race car. They always have cars in the lobby of the mall. I'm not sure why... But they also had a driving simulator which I got sidetracked on before I realized I was ignoring Ayano.

In other news, and more recently, I got a bike! I was super-pumped, because I bought the bike for 3000 yen, which is 12,000 yen less than what it would have cost me brand new! It’s also six months old. It is a granny bike for sure. You would not want to downhill bike on this thing, that’s for sure.

It has a huge basket in the front. This also shaves almost 20 minutes off of my trip to the Supermarket. I love it.

Sometimes when I ride it, I hum that song from the Wizard of Oz where the witch is riding the bike. I probably shouldn't have told you that.

Other things that didn’t make front-page news here in Japan: I’m still practicing for next weekend’s open mic. I’m trying to narrow down a few songs to play. Right now I’m playing songs by the Script, the Animals, mayyybe Adele, and then a couple of songs that I wrote. I’ll try to have someone videotape it next week. Also, my tomatoes finally started growing so that’s good.

So, that’s all I have for this week. I’m taking over a self-study campaign at work next week so it should be busy. We have a holiday on Friday though and we’re going hiking next Sunday! The next few posts should be pretty good!
