Hello April

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I’ll go back to attempting daily posts starting now.

Since I last wrote, in January, my company was bought by a better company, so we’re still easing into the mindset of belonging to a new company and getting used to the way that they do things.

February was uneventful for the most part..except that my roommate and I were able to purchase our tickets to Japan~! We’re both really excited to go back and see our friends as well as go to more parts of Japan that we haven’t been to. We’ll be there mid-October to November.

March was also uneventful and snowy. I’m tired of snow and I think it’s done for the time being, but I was able to get a picture that I was especially proud of—

I’m really happy I managed to capture that cute fluffy thing, haha.

All for now. I’ll update again later!

In The Pleasure Groove

It’s been a while since I’ve updated. I’m trying to get out if that habit and in one of writing at least 2 or 3 times a week like I used to. My main reason that I haven’t yet is work, of course. Usually, once I get home, I don’t feel like doing much of anything at all. This is a very busy time for my line of work, though, so once things settle down after the holidays, I think I’ll feel like doing more.

Not too much has happened since my last update, but one very big event for me was going to see John Taylor (Duran Duran) at his talk and signing event in Chicago on October 30th. The trip there was a bit exhausting as most car trips are. Chicago is 5 hours away from where I am, so it’s not really a short ride. The event itself was at the City Winery, which is a very nice place! I would love to go there again when I have a bit more time. It was nice inside and one thing I really liked were the wine bottle shaped lights.

Later on, when waiting in line for the signing, we got to see them close up.

My friend and I shared a plate of cheeses, which were delicious. I’m not big on blue cheese, but it tasted rather good with honey.

The talk and reading session with John was very good and amusing. Musically speaking, John has always been someone I look up to, so getting to listen to him talk about and read from his book and meet him was a dream come true for me, even if the meeting was a bit rushed due to time and how many were there. I enjoyed it!

I also had a book autographed for a friend in Japan. It’s a surprise present, so I hope she’ll like it. She’s a fan too, of course. John had some fun with her name though, haha. She goes by Chicako, so since we were in Chicago he was amused and wrote hers “To Chicako, From Chicago”.

I think she’ll like it!

Anyway, the book is good, so go buy it!

Ending here for now, but I have more to post later today.
