．．．has taken on a whole new meaning to me. The phrase rings with such TRUTH!! Today i was lost all day. ALL DAY. well, not all day because in the beginning Michi helped me get to Yokohama, and we walked around and she helped me get a cell phone (japan knows how to make cell phones!) and then i became the object of attention for an entire group of japanese girls that are in Nana`s english class, it was so adorable.
Anyway, Michi left me to explore Yokohama by myself while she took her children to their guitar lessons. We were planning on meeting back up at 9pm in Yokohama, but my cell phone had complications and died. So then, while i was trying sooo hard to prove my brilliance, Ｉ accidentally got on the wrong train and took myself an hour in the opposite direction, straight into downtown Shinjuku (which is a veryyyy wild amazing crazy part of Tokyo) and then ｃｌｅａｒ out of Tokyo before i could get off the train. And dont you dare shake your head at me because how could i have known i was heading in the wrong direction before they said SHINJUKU? But iｍ not here to defend myself, jeeeeze.
So YAS… that was my crazy day in a nutshell and i LOVED every, single, minute of it.
I ordered `ko-hee` at Starbucks, i bought myself some yummy_licious rice and i navigated my way out of quite a kunundrum on a tight timeline.
Taichi, (im almost sure thats how you spell his name). He is the little boy of Gota and Michiyo Hagio, the family that im staying with, and he is THE CUTEST LITTLE BOY IN THE WORLD. Listen folks, im serious. His sixth birthday is on monday and he makes up songs that rhymeｓ with my name ｔｈｒｏｗｉｎｇ in the phrases ‘oh babyy’ and ‘yummylicious’. In a very cute way, im just very impressed with how much character this little 6 year old ｐｏｓｓｅｓｓｅｓ． Ｉｔｓ ｓｏ ｃｈａｒｍｉｎｇ ｉｔｓ ａｃｔｕａｌｌｙ ｉｎｓｐｉｒｉｎｇ． ｓｏｍｅｔｈｉｎｇ ｓｔｒａｎｇｅ ｊｕｓｔ ｈａｐｐｅｎｅｄ ｔｏ ｔｈｅ ｔｅｘｔ ａｎｄ ｉ ｈａｖｅ ｎｏ ｉｄｅａ ｗｈａｔ， ｓｏ ｉ ｔｈｉｎｋ ｉ ｍｉｇｈｔ ｃａｌｌ ｉｔ ａ ｎｉｇｈｔ． ＩＴｓ ｒｅｅｅｅａｌｌｙ ｌａｔｅ ｈｅｒｅ， ｌｉｋｅ ２ ｔｈｉｒｔｙ ｉｎ ｔｈｅ ｍｏｒｎｉｎｇ． ｂｙ ｔｈｅ ｗａｙ， ｊｅｔ ｌａｇ ｈａｓ ｈａｄ ｎｏ ｅｆｆｅｃｔ ｏｎ ｍｅ． ｉ ｓｌｅｐｔ ｉｎ ｔｈｉｓ ｍｏｒｎｉｎｇ ａｎｄ ｉ ｈａｖｅｎｔ ｆｅｌｔ ｔｉｒｅｄ ａｔ ａｌｌ！ ｂｕｔ ｈｏｐｅｆｕｌｌｙ ｉ ｄｉｄｎｔ ｓｐｅａｋ ｔｏｏ ｓｏｏｎ． ｌｏｖｅ ｙｏｕ ｇｕｙｓ，
