I’m leaving for Japan in 26 days and nothing’s done.
All my courses this semester is online but I’ve pretty much picked the worst 2 and a half weeks to leave the country. Setting aside the online post and paper deadlines that I will (hopefully) hand in in advance, the night before I leave Japan, I have an online final (2AM JST mind you because of time zones). And then the morning after I’m back, I have my last final online.
Who thought it’d be a good idea to fly in the middle of my term? XD
I’m aiming to get everything that I CAN get done well in advance by July 10th. That gives me just under a week’s leeway before I fly and also a week for me to get ready for my trip.
I’ll be in Tokyo by myself for most the first leg of my trip. I’ve pretty much got my tickets for Anchan settled barring one more. Which I’m on the fence about because the prices are stupidly expensive. So either I splurge to get a more decent seat for my last show, or pay for the SLIGHTLY cheaper one but with a crappy seat. But then at least I’ll get to see Kitayama’s butai one more time.
After Anchan I’ll be heading down to Osaka where I’ll be meeting up with my relatives and spending a week with them there. This part of my trip, I’ll actually need to do proper planning and figure out where we’ll be going and what we’ll be doing since I’ll be responsible for my family… I have a rough itinerary so far and bought tickets and fastpasses for USJ the other day.
Managed to hit for Kisumai’s first Osaka show. And was lucky enough to procure tickets for the second afternoon show so that I can bring my cousin along.
Here’s the current state of my uchiwa making progress. I’m kind of pleased with how my Shibumitsu turned out. Currently struggling with how to fit everything onto the uchiwa so it’s readable.
I was excited to find red glitter sheets with adhesive backing to use for the lettering at the dollar store. Also picked me up some rhinestones to decorate ShibuMitsu’s ping pong paddle with :3
Not sure what to do on the back yet. If I find time, I’ll do from Canada or something on the back again.
Celebrated Father’s Day a day early as mom was leaving for Vegas with her girlfriends the next morning. So stuffed. Totally set me back on my diet (which I’m forever desperately trying to get back on track D:). Have work today so wasn’t able to hit the gym, but will definitely go tomorrow morning before I get back to studying for midterm.
So for things that I need to get done before I leave…
Aside from the school stuff and finishing the uchiwa. Still need to exchange the rest of my yens (got half of it exchanged last week). Shop for an outfit or two for the butai and figure out what clothes/outfits to bring with me on the trip since it’ll be super humid and hot.
