My birthday weekend!


So Monday was my actual birthday but I celebrated on the weekend with some close family friends! Saturday I went to dinner with one of my good friends I’ve made in tokyo so far, Sho. Afterwards we went bar hopping, where I proceeded to turn up off of life. I swear I was sober as a button and the only thing in that glass was ginger ale. I swore off drinking (except for a birthday glass of wine) because of the excess of alcohol I consumed in Thailand. This weekend I’m going to start my own original detox to get rid of the toxins I’ve acquired this month through poor food choices and drinking too much. Anyway I had a nice sober time at one of my favorite bars, Gaspanic. This place has a club feel and you can dance and not feel awkward, unlike most bars in Tokyo. I tried to create a #lewk but the lighting doesn’t do my outfit justice, in my opinion.
On Sunday I celebrated with my Japanese family, the Okamotos. They are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met and they always welcome me into their home with open arms. They are friends of my father and since moving to Tokyo, they’ve made my transition to life here so much more comfortable. They took me to a nice Italian restaurant, where we celebrated with an abundance of pizza, pasta, chicken, beef and much more. I had a great time and am so thankful to them for their lovely gifts and thoughtfulness!

Check out some pictures from my amazing weekend below!

Ciao! 🎂🍹

Night Aquarium 

Last Sunday I attended the annual Night Aquarium held in Nihonbashi. It was a great experience to see a cross between art and marine life and I made sure to take lots of pictures! This event runs through September I believe with some special nights featuring a DJ and drink bar (I went on a Sunday and there was no DJ unfortunately ☹️). Check out the pictures I took below!

My first casino experience 

so this past Saturday I stepped into a casino for the first time and it happened to be the Horseshoe casino in Baltimore. We originally stopped at a bar in Baltimore but go there so late, we decided to hit the casino afterwards. Me and my friend Morgan got there around 3 am (after retrieving her lost ID and debit card from a Good Samaritan at a local 7-11) and it was packed full of people. Overall the experience was a bit uncomfortable because of the Afro wig I was wearing which got me a lot of unwanted attention. Besides that I won 17 dollars, a small victory for a girl who thinks casinos are a scam and waste of money. Check out some pictures I snapped below and have a great rest of the week!

Note: I took a lot of pictures of the chandeliers, I just found them so beautiful. Also stay tuned for an update of my Japan trip and essential items I’m bringing with me! 😊

Hidden Gem: Blind Whino

This past Saturday I was lucky enough to participate in a community service event held by the organizers of Broccoli City Festival in order to earn a discounted ticket to the festival. We made over 800 lunches for the less fortunate and it was a great feeling to be a part of a movement to end hunger in DC and surrounding areas. What made it even better was the venue where the event was held, a concert hall called the Blind Whino. Complete with an art gallery it was one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve seen in DC. Take a look at some of the pics I took!

Hello WordPress world! Just notifying everyone that I graduated this weekend from the University of Maryland, College Park! I finished my Bachelors of Arts in Hearing and Speech Sciences in 3.5 years, something that I am very proud of. I have a sense of accomplishment and confidence that I know will take me into the next step of my life. Anyway, enjoy the photos and have a great holiday!

ARTOMATIC 2015

So. Much. Art. Earlier today I went to ARTOMATIC, an art exhibition in Hyattsville, MD. This particular exhibition took place in an office building with the whole structure being covered in pieces of art from paintings, to sculptures and even a full length feature film. It was truly a joy getting to walk around and observe for a couple hours and even better to attend with members of UMD MasTERPiece! Enjoy the photos I got to take of the art below!

my favorite part of the exhibit was definitely the photography by Greg Knott.
  
    
definitely would like to get something commissioned by him in the future.
