Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.”
― Yoko Ono
July and August were my busiest and stressful month to date. Forget about being online, I couldn’t even count the days I was in Himeji, sleeping in my own bed. #thisishowjobhuntingfeelslikeforsomeonewholivestoofarfromthecities #thankgoodnessIhavefriendsinTokyo
JULY IN RETROSPECT
|WENT HOME FOR EID|
I usually would only go home on spring break but when thinking that in the future I’ll be working in Japan (if I miraculously managed to pass the interview), the chance for me to spend Eid Mubarak with my family would be close to none so I went home and eat to my heart contents.
Note：Technically, I went for Eid in June but I was home until the end of July so it counts right?
|MY BEST FRIEND GOT MARRIED|
One of my best friends in high school has finally tied the knot with her same age university mate! It was a joyous affair and girl looks glowing on her wedding day.

My 3 years old Kindle Paperwhite broke down when I accidentally pressed it into my laptop. #iizsad 😢 . Luckily, Amazon held a Prime Day so I bought myself a brand new Kindle Paperwhite Manga Model 32gb model with a half discounted price. #foreverAmazonfangirl
|TOKYO JOB HUNTING AND INTERVIEWS|
You can say that now I have mastered the art of moving back and forth between Himeji and Tokyo using night bus. #demtired #thankGoditsover

August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time.
