Getting Back on Track

I am the worst.

No, no excuses this time. Let me just sum up 2017 so far.

January

AJ visits!

I took the week off and we went around the Kansai area, though I did end up sending him off to Kyoto all by his lonesome since I had a weekend seminar that coincided with his visit. It was pretty cold, but I finally got to see Himeji Castle and wandered around Kobe for a bit.

February

I presented at a colloquium in Tokyo. Yay academic stuff! Also, caught my friend James during his brief stopover in Japan. We went out to Roppongi and I proceeded to get into a drunken argument with the bartender about how Osaka has better food. I clearly speak better Japanese when intoxicated.

Oh, and AJ came to visit for my birthday!

 

March

Pretty uneventful. I started running? Zombies run is the best app.

April

Parents came to visit!

I unfortunately could not take time off of work since I was just starting at a couple of new schools, but we were still able to go to Hiroshima/Miyajima for a weekend, and then up to Tokyo/Hakone for the following weekend.

May

Malaysia with Issi!

I needed to get out. Just… out. Super lazy trip, nothing but food and beach and sleep. And drinks, of course.

June

Far plane

Oh boy. This event. I guess I should add a NSFW tag to this post. How do I describe it? There is a BDSM themed bar here in Osaka and they put together a BDSM themed party event at least once a year? It was fun!

Also, Issi came to visit me! We didn’t take enough pictures though. And I failed to steal her passport, so unfortunately she was able to escape back to Korea.

July

Molly arrived! She lives in rural Kyoto though. Still, she’s in Japan now. Hooray!

Also, I finally wore my yukata! Hooray, summer matsuri!

Ok with that done, I should be caught up. I know it’s just a photo dump and quick summary, but I’ll never get to the backlog of entries I already have. I may as well give myself a fighting chance at keeping this blog updated.

Hopefully, I’ll update again soon!
