A Catch Up

"When was  the last time you did something for the first time?"
To say that I'm 'quite' busy is an understatement. My last post was when my first school term ended. And now, my second term has started and I'm midway through my two weeks summer break. Japan has been surreal. There are days when I feel like everything is mundane and routine, but then there will be days that everything is new and exciting. I like it. I like how erratic things are. I like change. I love change. Nothing makes me happier than knowing how I'm different from the person that I used  to be. I love how living here in Japan has given me the chance to reinvent myself - or at least just some parts of me. It's tough, and it will always be. But I think I'm getting comfortable with trying despite my fears and of taking chances despite not knowing what the consequences may be. I'm learning a lot. And I'm looking forward to learn more.

P.S. Pardon the dramatic tone of this post. I was  feeling reflective tonight. Plus, I missed blogging so much.

Asakusa

My first term in my Japanese language school recently ended. Surprisingly, I got decent grades  for someone who hasn't practiced Japanese in a long time. I'm looking forward  to next term!

Anyways, as the title states, this post is about my first time in Asakusa. We went there directly from Tokyo Sky Tree (by biking of course). When we arrived, it reminded me of  Divisoria and Ongpin, but cleaner. We went on a Saturday so the place was packed with tourists, making it very difficult to take lots of pictures.

To Tokyo Sky Tree

One of our bike adventures led us all the way to Tokyo Sky Tree. That's two hours away from Kasai, where I currently live, so we biked for four hours (to and from) that day. My bottoms hurt, but it was all worth it.
