Tomorrow is Chinese New Year and I am super psyched, because the year of the Dragon has been nothing but upheaval and breaking stuff for me, and if a snake year isn't glorious for dogs, at least it don't shit directly upon my head like the dragon year does.
So today at the grocery store, I do the fruit section first, and then go about my business, and about 3 aisles later I realize...the cart I'm pushing isn't mine. I accidentally switched carts with the little old lady near me who picked up the same exact fruit as me. so I had to shamefacedly go back to the produce section and she was like "YOU!" it was so embarrassing omg. ONLY ME.
I finished reading Shinjuku Shark this week at school and really enjoyed it. I think the next novel in the series has been translated into English so I definitely want to pick it up the next time I'm in NYC, but I'm not sure how many more are and at what increments they appear. It would be a lot easier if I could just read actual Japanese novels already, damn. Foreign language why you gotta be so hard.
everyone's sick at school and I haven't been feeling that hot either, but I never quite get sick the whole way, enough so I can take off or anything. I mean, I guess that's good, but it's always like this and it just feels like if I could get properly sick and get it over with in a couple days or a week, maybe that would be preferable instead of dragging it out for weeks and weeks. I'm crocheting a prayer shawl at the moment, randomly, and by the time i'm done it might be a disease shawl in reality.
I started going back to the gym this week. One of my school friends is getting married at the end of the year, so we agreed to keep a joint calendar and both of us had to go to the gym at least 3 times a week. When we get to fifty gym trips between the two of us, we're getting a pedicure! I've been doing Couch to 5k on the treadmill, so hopefully by the time our school 5k rolls around in the spring maybe I won't be totally embarrassing during it.
also i made karaage for lunch and it was amazing ( o^_^o)
