December 2019 and end of year wrap up

I have just realized that I did not post anything for December and that 2019 already ended before I could post this lol. The last month of 2019 was a blast. Extreme things happened (will be explained in another post) but good and nice things like watching Christmas fireworks in the middle of winter happened

November 2019

This month was hectic and tiring. My calendar has never looked so crowded and I feel like I’m always out and about physically and mentally. So many things were happening and it’s hard to process what’s really happening around me. Highlights Went to the States for the first time! Fell on my knee and earned

Schaumburg, IL

The event ended in the afternoon so we had a couple of hours to explore the city. I decided to visit Woodfield Mall, which is the biggest premium outlet in the area (apparently). My newly made Korean friend decided to join me since she had to do some shopping as well. We took the free

Tokyo 2019 Pt. 1

Last week, I visited Tokyo for the first time in 11 years. I have no recollection of what it looked like in the past, but I’m sure a lot of things have changed ever since I visited this city a decade ago. I originally came to apply for my US Visa. I could’ve just came

Night Sea Hell

Umi Jigoku is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Beppu. It’s usually open during the daytime, but this time, it also opens at night for a special event! ‘Yoru’ itself means night. Right as you enter, you can see a lot of illuminations decorating the place. The entrance is different from the one
