By the time someone reads this, I'll probably be furiously flipping through pages of the CDH while metaphorically clasping my hands in solemn prayer that reinforced concrete will have mercy on my poor, non-structurally-adept brain.
For the first time since entering this program, this term marks the very first opportunity to conclude the academic year before the third- (or second-) last day of the month. It also inadvertently means taking the necessary measures to curb procrastination (pfft) and adopting the unsocial lifestyle of a house hermit, which may or may not have cause sharp weight gain in the process.
As a resulting consequence of being locked indoors, figuratively speaking anyway, I've accumulated quite a few pinhole camera-quality visuals. Here are some mid-month images to summarize my sedentary cramming sessions:
MY ALBUMS HAVE FINALLY ARRIVED!!!!
4) Yuzu-Sour Plum slushies have been my go-tos as of late
5) Attempts at latte art
6) Uncle Tetsu's delectableTriple Baked Cheese Tarts courtesy of my favourite fangirl
10) Gold foil bunnies are totally my thing, especially if it's adorably cuddling a dark chocolate egg.
After a depressing evening of Light Up The Night - complete with a heavy downpour, stale churros, and tiny Pogo sticks - we set out to fill our stomachs with Taco Del Mar's Thursday special: the Taco Salad.
We had been recommended to the establishment to try out Taco Salad Thursday, but were ultimately left gnawing away at a sauce-laden allotment of pre-seasoned rice (MSG alert!), a few sad shreds of lettuce, impossibly firm "basa" strips, and a soggy tortilla casing served up in a styrofoam box.
Napkins were scarce, utensils were flimsy, and plastic containers of runny sour cream were found to implode upon opening due to pressure.
13) Takeout Unagi Donburi and (ahem FROZEN) Fried Gyoza from Akasaka
Albeit the substantial amount of eel, the omission of pickled ginger, half-container of miso soup, disgusting pre-packaged T&T dumplings, and oil-drenched salad were definitely not to my standards.
15) More CoCo + latte art attempts
17) A sneak peek of an upcoming segment on a newly-discovered spring/summer beverage
