Hello, 2016!

Oh gosh, it’s been a while! I had the best intentions to update these past few months, but my school workload got to be a rather intense for a moment there – and then when it was finally time to take a break for the holidays, it was non-stop traveling. Then once the holiday break was over, it was already time for finals! Somehow, I made it through the madness that was final exams here at Doshisha. Our last exam was on Tuesday and then… freedom at last! Doshisha University takes its break between semesters from January through March, and then we’ll be back for the Spring semester from March until August. So until then, I have more time on my hands than I know what to do with. Perfect opportunity to get back to blogging, right?

I’ve been able to do and see so much since I last wrote, I almost don’t know where to begin. I guess I’ll start with: Happy New Year! I hope you’ve all had a fantastic holiday season and are off to a great start in the new year. My holidays were lovely, because after months of waiting and counting down the days, it was finally time for my long-time partner, Olin, to come visit me in Kyoto!

Olin's Arrival!I’ll do separate entries for that adventure, so stay tuned! Before I get to that, though, I’ve got to back track all the way to November… time really flies, huh?

I promise I’ll update soon, so until then hang in there! For those of you who have been keeping up with me on Instagram, thanks for all the comments and likes! Alright, write to you all soon!
