Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!  Hope you all will have a wonderful Christmas day.  I talked with my parents on skype this morning (although it's still christmas eve in America!) and opened some presents, it was very nice!  Now I'm getting ready to start the day, I'm having a Christmas dinner party later tonight and I still have some last minute preparations to do.  My parents got me some nice soft pajamas and I don't feel like doing much besides lazing around my room in them, but I have to get going!  They also got me a nice makeup kit though, so that will be fun to experiment with after my shower.

Tomorrow I'm going to head up to Harajuku to look for cheap snowboarding gear, and to Shinjuku to go ahead and get my bus ticket and figure out where the night bus departs from.  Looking forward to snowboarding and going to hot springs in Yamagata when my vacation finally starts!  I have to go into work on Tuesday, but there are no classes that day.  We'll just be cleaning, I think.  I have to get all packed and ready tomorrow though, because I'm going to be leaving directly from work to go to Shinjuku and catch the night bus up to Yamagata.

Mostly foods

Cappucino at the coffee shop near my work

Sundubu jjige at a Korean restaurant in Shimokita

Here I am at work!  I'm getting ready to leave so I don't have my jacket on and I'm wearing my hat

My new haircut!  It doesn't look as good as when it was first done though

Milk tea at a cute cafe in Shimokita

They drew a smiley face on my green curry at the place we went for dinner, haha.  (It doesn't look green because I picked the wrong filter!)
