It looks best in the sunlight, but isn't my hair color the BEST?? (Ignore the lack of style.. I woke up and went out without bothering with it) Eda and I went to get our hair done yesterday, and I'm really pleased with the results. ^^ Well, I could be a bit redder, but it was the reddest color they had that wasn't purple-tinted (which is hideous on me). I love the color!! The cut's almost the same-- a tiny bit shorter and thinner because he had to even out my mistakes and the fried ends, but I hope from now on to continue growing it out! And excuse my hair's lack of presentableness-- the wind was blowing REALLY hard this morning (what else is new?). I swear, Tokyo is a LOT windier than even Chicago!

Yesterday before the haircut, I got into a bit of an accident.. On a SUPERCROWDED busy street where bikes should not be allowed (parked or riding), I tripped over a parked bike in the throng of people and landed -HARD- on my knees. It hurt a lot. Basically my full weight landed on my knees, and then I actually fell down all the way because I wasn't able to catch myself. For the next I don't know how long, I thought I was going to pass out. My ears were ringing constantly and I couldn't see straight, and was super nauseous. It was really bad! But thankfully Eda was there to take care of me (♥) and I pulled through. Today my left arm hurts a LOT when I lift it, and my knees hurt when I try to do something new with them (move when I've been sitting, etc) and they have gigantic purple bruises... but I think I'll be okay. But oh man, on the first truly warmish day we've had, I'm stuck inside nursing my wounds, so to speak. ^^;; At least I have a book or two (or 10) to finish, and two DVDs to watch... eventually.

BUT NOMG I LOVE THE NEW PASMO. Best invention EVER and stuck-up suica can go suck my youknowwhat. That is all! \\^o^//

Mary Jane look? *not sure what that is* It's basically the same as my haircut before, just red (finally). ^^

thats an interesting hair cut. ^^
Did you end up layering it?

Ouchies D: Thats not fun.
I know the pain, although I ended up bruising one knee, not two. (tripped on the escalator, while running up >.<;)
So I hope you get better ne ? ^^

Hope you don't mind me lurking ^^;;
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 19th, 2007 02:11 pm (UTC)
Nah, I ended up not layering it because it would have looked like a mullet with it this length. I need longer!! :O And of course I don't mind lurking. ^.~ Though I love comments of course!

Ouch. I hope you get better, and hopefully those bruises will go away soon. And I defintely like the new haircolor. I wish it was darker... Hm...But its really nice!

Oh I love it :D sweet color. Ack not good to hear about the fall. I fell once doing down the subway stairs, my feet slipped out from me and slid down like 10 stairs on my butt. ^^;; boy my pride was dented. But i was fine, but a sore behind ^^;;. I hope it gets better quick.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 19th, 2007 02:09 pm (UTC)
LOL I know how that feels. Oh the accidents I've had in the past. My worst was shattering my tailbone though, when I fell down ice-covered stairs. Even though it's more than 10 years later, my lower tailbone still hurts like hell sometimes if I sit wrongly or it's too cold. ;__;

That hair is CUTE. I <333 the colour.

Aww, did any Japanese people stop and try to help you? or did they just ignore you and walk around you?. I'm so clumsy I fall over all the time and slip on ice etc. So embarrassing but I always laugh about it later.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 19th, 2007 02:06 pm (UTC)
Thank you! ^__^
I was really dazed/sick at the time, so I didn't take a lot of notice of the people around me. If Eda hadn't been there to help me I don't know what I would have done! :O But I do believe that some people were very concerned, but since I had a friend to help me they didn't stay around. People seemed very nice, I think that some would have helped me if she hadn't been there.

That color looks really nice on you! I can't remember if it's red like Brittney's on ANTM or whatever, it still looks good :D

Ahhh, I'm sorry you got hurt over someone else's careless mistake. I hope your knees get better soon!

I think that color really suits you, I love red hairs <3 ^^
Get well soon*** I know how it hurts to fall that way, my P.E. teacher is always making us play football and I'm that kind who just looks to the ball and is frequently tripping and falling XD

I swear... only Japanese hairstylist can get the right hair color =.=

By the way I'm just wondering, since I also have plans to stay in Japan for a while... when you first decided to move over... how much did you save?

I've been thinking of going to Tokyo to teach English or Chinese >.< but I just wanna know the basics first like rental of apartment, transport and all.

Sorry if I'm asking stupid questions because I'm really confused with alot of things =.=
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 19th, 2007 10:44 pm (UTC)
I'm terrible at saving money, so I had to borrow money. I changed $1000 into yen and went with that. But the only reason that worked is because the company that I was working for customarily gave advances to all of its workers after only 1 week.

I suggest getting a job before coming over, because your company will take care of all of the apartment details for you. ^^
