Study Abroad in Osaka, Japan | Week Three

2016年1月25日 ➖ 2016年1月31日
Total Spent this Week:  13,330 yen

The third week of my Study Abroad was quite terrible. The main reason was because I got sick. >.< I'm actually still sick after 8 days so... le sigh... Overall the week was just normal. I've actually started cooking more, so you'll get to see a little of the dishes I ended up making. :) So, without further ado, please enjoy this week's study abroad post!

Study Abroad in Osaka, Japan | Week Two

*I'm not too sure why some of the texts are turning pink...but I'll fix it soon!!

2016年1月18日 ➖ 2016年1月24日
Total Spent this Week:  23, 974 yen

The second week of my Study Abroad has just finished and I'm definitely feeling the struggles now. I miss speaking and thinking 100% in English. I'm missing the convenience of American food and the deliciousness of Hawaiian food. I'm missing my freedom of saying whatever's on my mind without thinking twice on what the exact translation would be. I'm terribly missing my friends and family. 

Week Two was really a week of missing. But I still got to experience a lot of happy things along the way. So here's this week's adventures! I hope you enjoy!

Study Abroad in Osaka, Japan | Week One

2016年1月12日 ➖ 2016年1月17日
Total Spent this Week: 9,335 yen

Hello everyone! I can't believe it's already Sunday here in Japan! I experienced my first 'week' of Study Abroad (more like 5 days) and so far it's been an interesting experience. I'm still really scared and excited for everything that will come to me during these next 5 months, so without further ado here's how my first week went! Enjoy!

2016 | Life Changing

Hey guys! Happy (super belated) New Year! 

To be honest, I still can't believe that 2015 flew by that quickly. It seems like just yesterday I was blogging about the past year in my 20th birthday post (which you can find here), and 6 months later, the year has finally come to an end. I hope everyone enjoyed their last few days of 2015 and are looking forward to the brand new year of 2016!

Not gonna lie but for me, 2016 will probably be the most exciting yet most frightening year of my entire life. So many life changing events are happening to me this year. And just to list a bunch: I'm turning 21 making me an 'official' legal adult in the United States, I'm going to start my final year of undergrad at my University, I'm going to get a new addition to my family during my brother's wedding in June, I'm looking into graduate programs and figuring out what exactly I'm going to do after I graduate from undergrad...Oh...and I'm going to be living in Osaka, Japan for 6 months for my mandatory study abroad program.

2016 will definitely be an adventure for me. And one of my resolutions I made for myself was to blog more about these adventures. I know I've stuck with beauty posts since the very beginning of this blog but for 2016, I wanted to try something different and move into more journal-like posts that reflects the life events that I'm experiencing. The posts would be my way of essentially remembering the events that will eventually shape the rest of my life. 2016 will be life-changing for me, so I want to document as much as I can so when I'm 70 and slowly withering away, I can (hopefully) go back and read what my life was like and how I felt in these certain moments. 

I will continue to blog about beauty since I am still in love with the industry. Just not as much as before. (Not like I did much recently anyway tbh...) I just wanted to let you guys know the changes that will be happening to this blog before you ask me "where's all the beauty reviews and why are you only posting about your travels???" 

Sooooo long story short: Stay tuned for all of my Study Abroad Adventures while I'm in Japan! Every Sunday, I'm planning to blog once a week, journaling and recapping the different days of my study abroad here in Osaka. Hopefully I'll keep up with the posts, but if not, I might just do bi-weekly or monthly reports. Also! As I slowly get accustomed to the life here in Japan, I might even make some helpful posts to those who wish to travel to this country! I still want to be as helpful as I can to all you peeps out there, so if you want me to blog about something specific as the weeks go by, please tell me~! I'm always here for you.

So with that, I'll end this wordy post with a picture of the 2016 Aimee since...well...why not~ ;)

Until next time, 
Be true and always be you, 
Love, Aimee
