I kept a diary every day I was in Japan so I won't repeat the contents here. Instead - some things I did for the first time in Japan:

Today was not such a good one.
  1. I made a terrible, terrible mistake this morning. I am praying & praying that the money will bounce. I don't think I can relax until it does D: I knew should have given the extra change back.
  2. I was supposed to go to the roller derby BUT tickets were sold out when we got there ): so we played around in the entertainment quarter for a while & then we went to the Guylian cafe with it's extremely overpriced cakes &c.
  3. The guy at the movie counter didn't ask where we wanted to sit but gave us seats somewhere in the Ys (maybe because we were bullying him about the price a little ._.) but we ended up sitting in like... the front row as people kept kicking us out of their seats, lol.
  4. The Kiss was a little too heavy for my mood. But the cinematography was gorgeous & the scene where he calls the police is genius editing. Everyone in the audience was kind of bemused throughout; there was a lot of laughter at probably inappropriate moments, lol. I did like how they forced you to work things out for yourself though - one problem I have with a lot of movies is the fact that they treat the viewer like an idiot, and resort to using flashbacks to make an obvious point. But it was a little slow - everything suddenly seemed to happen at the end. Sakaguchi realising the full extent of what he has done & still wanting to die. No longer out of loneliness, but out of a desire to repent & to prevent himself from killing again. (& at the same leaving Endo alone - which goes back to the idea of him being selfish) But Endo is actually just as selfish; she thinks that they are entitled to kill - it's their way of getting back at society. . . Essentially it's a movie about being an 'outsider', & also a warning to society to think about the consequences of the way it treats certain individuals.

I am in a really good mood right now, meaning: super-sappy post ahead, lol.

Because today was an excellent day. A while ago I was thinking of not going to the tea party because I most probably wouldn't be in a state fit for human company but it was actually good fun. Hamlet is the cutest dog on earth & there was cranium & piano & guitar & amazing singing (obviously not by me lol).

The other thing is kind of amazing & I'm really grateful & also scared to talk about it because now the stakes are so much higher & if I either fail my Ps or can't get my visa I really am going to cry. But when I read it I couldn't help thinking that it's true, God helps those who help themselves. Because earlier I had spent a lot of time unhappy but the minute I actually acted to change that, things got better. & normally I don't really expect short-term results but maybe this was my problem from the start.

Also. I. . . feel really blessed to have such good friends, even though I don't deserve them ♥
