Yesterday it snowed in Tokyo........  
tokyo tower I love Tokyo. I don't know how many times I've said that, but I really, truly love this city. I would love to stay here forever, and I endeavor a little bit each day to make myslf more at home in this city. From studying japanese, which I do every day in some capacity, to improving my quality of life to trying something new, I do a lot of things here. I just felt that I wanted to express my love for this city. That's Tokyo Tower in that picture, by the way. I actually haven't been there since James and Jess visited in May, so this is an old picture. But the colors are so beautiful ^^ (Okay, honestly, I enhanced them...).

Yesterday, it snowed in Tokyo. Not enough to be able to tell, but it fell on my friends and I as we went to dinner, and as we came back. It's really cold here, but the snow has a calming effect that just kind of whispers to you that everything is going to be all right with the world. Or tells you to run out and play in it. If there were more, maybe it would be the latter. I'm looking forward to the snow that will surely come this Christmastime, even though I hate the cold. I love sitting inside a warm place, drinking cocoa and watching the snow fall over the city. ♥ Lazy wintertime...

On Saturday night I had a blast hanging out with Eda and Erin and having an all-night gundam-dork party! XD The object was to watch corny videos (like Kenn's DVD etc) and make stupid jokes and stupidly colored drinks named after characters. XD Oh the horror, the horror that is "Orange Iro no Hamabe de" now... o.o I fell asleep about 2 am, though.. but the banana liqueur was awesome!! For some reason, I miss Eda already, though she's not leaving Tokyo for a few more days.. ;_; *counts the days until she comes back*

On Sunday night, Eda and I went with Yuko and Noda-sensei and others to have lamb bbq at his friends' restaurant! I feel really energized and full of fighting spirit after that! I was also really happy to see Su-chan again. It's been a long time, but he's still as short as ever. *laughs* You know.. Noda-sensei really really inspired me. He said some really amazing things, and I feel once more like I can really do this. I am going to try my hardest to make it happen, and I think that I can do it!

4 more days of work... then I have dinner with friends on Friday night, which I'm really looking forward to!! ^__^ Then it's off to the whirlwind of my first weekend of Winter vacation, which includes too much JUMP festa and Nagayan's Xmas party. Week after, Tenimyu, various parties with friends, birthday party, and after that, Comicket, Kimeru's concert, etc... it doesn't stop. Seriously, my entire vacation is going to be a blast. ^^ I'll have a lot of down time too, but I'm going to be hard at work collaborating on a manga. ^-^ (With whom yet, I don't know... Actually I do have someone in mind to ask..)

Yeah.. I was like... wtf is that? o.o

It's not solidified smog. Really. At least I think not.

In all seriousness ... I wouldn't mind heading up to Hokkaido to see the snow and ice festivals, if it weren't for the fact that seeing snow and ice requires the ambient temperature to be a hair above BABYJEBUSINASNOWGLOBE cold.

I didn't realize you have also parties to attend, looks like your vacation will be busier than mine^O^
Ganbare for the collaboration on a manga!^^
BTW answering your prev comment, I've seen some cheap cheap reservation for best seat tickes only for Bleach stage now..so I think tickets are for single events (I know Bleach radio event has them..but I don't know where to find them). I sent Mari an email, I hope she'll answer me soon.

Some of the parties are ones that I want to plan for us, too. ^___^

Just reading about how much you love it there makes me that much more excited to go there myself. The picture is beautiful, even if you enhanced the image a bit.

I have never seen snow in my life before but there was just one time where I saw snow on the van but that did NOT count. [coughs]

I hope your break is full of happiness and funness because I'll be going to DC!

Good luck with the manga! :D

It.. it snowed!? And I missed it!? ;_; Noo why why I love snow! It's so frustrating when it's so darned cold and it doesn't even snow. >.> And a beautiful angle of Tokyo Tower there. I saw Tokyo Tower from Shibuya last Sunday, and we were talking about which station Tokyo Tower could be in. XD;

Snow~! Snow is great! Not that I know much about it...just some trips to Flagstaff. But it was fun and really white!

That's quite and action packed Winter break! Whoa!
