Conveyor belt sushi. It was pretty good for the price. Speedy cuz it’s self-serve versus when you have the pieces made for you.

My umbrella is cute AFFFF. ☂️
Bought it a few months ago but just now had a chance to get some pictures with it. ☺️😘🧡 June is Japan’s rainy season so investing in a good umbrella is essential. This one holds up great in high winds and down pouring rain. 🌧

Haven’t played in months. Obviously. Just lost interest with the move and everything. If I had had Pokémon Go on since we moved here, I wonder how many miles would have been logged. I’m not exaggerating when I say I’m pretty we’ve walked over 100-200 miles easily since living here, maybe even more. It’s actually unfathomable how much walking we’ve done.

Little celebratory lunch yesterday right next to my language school. I made it to Judo twice this week for the first time since I started. Intense but very good. My strength and cardio have returned to a place I haven’t been in awhile. Maybe even years. My injuries are doing well too. 
I studied hard all week and I got 100% on my Japanese tests.
And I can now read Hiragana! T’was good day. 💜

Last week and twice this evening, I put my feet down from the chair I sit in cross-legged to study, and my feet touched these fuzzy slippers. Immediately I kinda flinch and recoil because it’s hard wired into my brain that soft, fuzzy, and right at your feet—is a cat. Not going to lie, this shit makes me want to cry, and I definitely miss Miyu and Sanura. 😢😢

Our guest room from last weekend. It was a bed and then a loft. Bathroom and shower in the hallway. Was great taking a bath at the end of a hot sticky day with lots of walking. Check out the stranger thing Christmas lights on the front of the building. 😭 (My last post reminded me to make this one.) .

Went to Lapis Design store the other night for some art supplies. Rainy and the skyscrapers always look wicked with the fog. Oh and here’s the giant Roppongi spider looking like Stranger Things.

Posted a video on FB this morning of the late Anthony Bourdain 😢...explaining why Tokyo is the #1 travel destination in the world for him. He talked about the different districts, sight seeing, the food, the people; and he mentioned the delicious egg salad sandwiches you can get at any convenience store. It inspired me to rewatch his episode of Parts Unknown: Tokyo.
I love the entry, with just him talking over a shot of him sitting alone about to have a drink:
.
“What do you need to know about Tokyo?
.
.
Deep, deep waters.”
.
The episode was great watching again. And on the way home tonight (to continue my thoughts from last post), when I was ready to eat after my train ride, I stopped at the Family Mart by our house. And I got sushi for the first time from there. It was amazing. So delicious. Fresh. Rice was sticky and good. Seaweed too. Everything on point.
Most people would gasp if you told them you ate sushi from a convenience store, but not here. Everything is made fresh daily.
.
I went to 7-11 later to pick up some lunch food for D tomorrow while he’s being babysat and I’m in class; and thought to snap some pictures of the food selection.
Incredible. Some days it’s the last thing you want, and others you’re in love all over again.
One of the many reasons I love Tokyo, and am so grateful for this amazing opportunity. Also, thank you to Anthony Bourdain for showing people this wonderful place that is Tokyo...and Japan. 🏮

I love that there are literally vending machines everywhere with so many different options. Just tap your Pasmo (subway card) and boop! Drink/snack drops down. Last 2 classes of Judo I haven’t felt like eating immediately after but this and some water helps get some nutrients back into my body. So good! Today was intense, I’m glad there was only 3 bouts of randori because I don’t think I could have done a 4th without having to stop. They know just the right amount to push you to the limits.

Brunch today at a place called Eggcellent...specializing in Eggs Benedict’s. Took us literally 15 minutes to find this place after our initial 15 min walk, but so worth it.

Part 2! 💜💙
I don’t have a lot of mobile lid space. One of the *biggest* challenges for my almond-shaped eyes is getting into the inner lash-line and inner eye area without overdoing it. I usually would use my 4SST brush in this area, and I still do—But these brushes have been a God send, you hear me? Because now I can take the weasel brush tip and very gently and subtly place eyeshadow at the inner lash-line. It’s just....so damn amazing. 😭😭😭 #couldshedtearsofjoy

YAY! I FINALLY had the desire and opportunity to upload a video of me using my weasel pencil brushes! 🙌🏼 The last cut of video is me using the big sister (6.5mm), the earlier parts of the video are the little sister (6mm). Apologies I’m already wearing makeup, but as I didn’t put on a full amount of eyeshadow earlier, a little touch up can still show their special powers!!! 😂🙌🏼🔮🖌🖌
ALSO! I usually use my 4SST and 8SST liner brushes to sharpen and perfect the upper lash line. Today, however, I did almost everything with my weasel pencils. So they are amazing for quick application as well. 😘💙💜 This video is mainly for Cristy @crs_ty20, but of course anyone else who maybe be interested. 😜 (Sorry video quality isn’t the greatest!)

The last week or two in review. (Kyle wrote some Hiragana and then Damian tried to copy. Lol.) The line of people is at lunch time at Family Mart: they move pretty quick. This is basically Japan’s version of fast food. Deli stuff ready to go.
