Making progress

Although I have not reverted to my normal sleeping and eating schedule, I have been making steady progress on my thesis. I have decided to focus on it and get it done ASAP so that I can shift my attention fully for job hunting. Of course, it’s easier said than done since I start to

I may have to leave Japan?

Today I got an email notification that I have yet failed another job application. This time I failed the application for a retail/sales position for this tech company you guys probably know. The reason why they failed me, though, was rather on the funnier side. Their excuse was “it’s hard for us to provide Visa

Tokyo 2019 Pt. 2

On the second day of our stay, we visited Hamarikyu Gardens. I must say I had a pretty bad experience here since it had rained the day before and the paths are all muddy. Aside from the muddy roads, the view and weather was actually very nice. The garden has a lot of tea houses

Tokyo 2019 Pt. 1

Splurging on Muji products

I can’t believe I did it … but I kinda went crazy and splurged on Muji because they had a 20% sale for almost all items. Apparently, the only branch in this small city is going for renovation, which is why Muji is selling off all of their products with huge discounts. I actually went

Osaka Pt. 3: Universal Studios Japan

Universal Studios Japan (USJ) was our destination for the third day. We came quite early before the gates opened since my friend wants to get into the newest attraction of Attack on Titan. We thought we’re quick enough, but nope, we’re actually quite late lol. We had to wait almost 45 minutes to get into
