Daily Monday

First month of work and new anime

It feels like only a couple of days have passed ever since I started work but time flies. It’s been nothing but continuous training and lectures. Funnily, we’re in a English training session right now. I don’t see myself needing one but I guess I have to attend it since it’s mandatory for everyone and it’d be unfair for me not to participate.

Golden Week is soon (starting the 29th of this month?). I’m not sure what I’m going to do. I probably won’t be doing much other than just staying home and playing games. I’m going to be receiving my first official salary soon but I can’t even spend it on the things I want since I’ll have to use that money to cover up my moving out fees. I really want a new phone since my iPhone 7 is really really really in a bad condition that I have to charge it up several times a day if I want to use it continuously and it’s honestly been bugging me. I’m also planning to buy a pair of black flats and business card holder next month since I need it for work.

So many things to buy, so little money to spend.

I’ve been discovering and enjoying some new anime titles this season. The 2nd season for Mairimashita Iruma-kun started airing last week and I’m so excited for the new episodes already! The final season for Fruits Basket is also out and they never fail to deliver angst. I am also still following Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? since it’s a really interesting and fun fantasy/isekai show.

As for brand new series, I’ve been following Shadow House, Fumetsu no Anata e (To You, The Immortal), and Mashiro no Oto. I got so hooked into the story that I started reading the manga for both Shadow House and Fumetsu. I really recommend the former for people who love mystery and fantasy, and the latter for action and (lots of) feels. Mashiro no Oto is your typical high school music club but with shamisen as the spotlight this time. The music’s lit, though.

I’m not sure if it’s worth mentioning but I’m also following Bishonen Tanteidan (Pretty Boy Detective Club) since I heard it has the same creator as the Monogatari series. The Bishonen series gives off a very different vibe, though. I’m not sure how the story will turn out, but so far, it’s been pretty entertaining.

Well, then, I shall return to reading Fumetsu for now. Until then!

  1. I’m glad work is going well despite having to take an English class. What exactly is it that you’ll be doing? I’m glad you will be able to get paid soon. It’s important to knock out all your debt before moving on to a new phone. But I do understand where you’re coming from! My old phone needs to be charged all the time. (I use my old phone as an alarm or to play Animal Crossing Pocket Camp).

    I’m glad you’re enjoying all the anime! I’m having a hard time getting into it again. I am still watching Parasyte though. I think I prefer ghost/horror anime. I don’t know why. I was trying to watch “The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-Chan”, but it’s been hard. I love the characters, but I hate how Yuki is portrayed in this. She seems so weak and mousy. I can’t stand her voice either (in Japanese and in English). I guess I just don’t like meek and weak sounding characters.

    PS. That cake looks so delicious!

    1. Basically we’re just learning the basic English required for work. It’s pretty elementary but I still get tired from having to listen to all the explanation and do the textbook exercises. I guess just sitting all day long still takes up your energy somehow.

      The cake is from Starbucks! They’re selling Tiramisu drinks for a limited time and this cake came with a set that’s only available if you order online (apparently). It’s really good but a bit too expensive for me haha.

  2. What kind of work do you do though? I’m sorry, it really isn’t any of my business! Our Starbucks never has anything like that. T.T I’m so jealous! I can’t find Shadows House anywhere right now to stream, but I’ll keep it in mind (and I’ll ask my husband about it. He might know!)

    1. I’m going to work for the procurement division. I’m not sure what kind of specific work I’ll be doing there though. I’ll have to wait until the general training session ends to find out haha.

      Yeah, I don’t think the Starbucks back in my home country does this either. I must say Japanese Starbucks is really nice for that reason. They always have these limited edition drinks and merchandises according to the season.

  3. My husband said that should be a fun job! I hope whatever the specifics of your job is, I hope it will be fun! I feel like Japan is just better about promotions which is honestly a smart way to draw in potential customers who may normally just turn a blind eye. I wish the US would use this. I would buy more things just to get some cool freebie. lol
