rings of saturn

I was mentally cursing myself when I was editing these photos; I don't know why, while wearing a t-shirt make-shift dress, that I would take these photos from that angle. I promise you that in real life it's not as short as it looks!
I can't think of any news (...the weather has been nice?) but knowing me there's probably nothing much but the occasional rant and instances of my lazy disposition but anyway, I hope you've all been enjoying a more exciting week!

Oh and as for the title, the book I'm currently reading (a.k.a speed reading and cutting to the vip parts) is Rings of Saturn by W.B. Sebald. If you're reading a book or have any recommendations, let me know!

(tbh don't know what I was doing with the next photo)

I'M GOING TO JAPAN!

Yes, I repeat: I'M GOING TO JAPAN. A few posts back I mentioned that I applied for the JET Programme where you go to Japan as an Assistant Language Teacher for English. The process is really length and luckily I got an interview and waited for the results for about 2 months. Then on April 1st, I saw a brown envelope in the postbox and thought, "This is it. I bet this is it." and my thoughts were confirmed when I saw the official embassy stamp. It did cross my mind that it was april fool's day but for extra measure, the letter was dated 31st of March! It's so weird, I mean I kind of believe it but then there are moments where I think, "Oh my god I really am going!!" I won't be leaving until the end of July so for now, studying and exams are the focus. I was all over twitter about the news and I wanted to write about it here, well, 2 weeks ago but I didn't want to tack it on as an extra with an outfit post. As well as writing here, I'll be tweeting more frequently about what's going on in the next few months so follow me here if you wanna know more :)

So anyway, these photos are from the 'Experience Japan' festival that I went to yesterday. It was absolutely freezing but still good fun; there were dance performances, karate demonstrations, kimono & yukata dressing, calligraphy and lots of other things!  I also lined up for 25 minutes to get yakisoba but it was so worth it.

endgame

Thought I'd switch it up from the usual outfit posts and show my random experiments with the camera and playing around with editing! That doesn't mean I actually have any idea what I'm doing though. Also, I got such a kick out of bunnies on the second photo...I feel like they're a direct antithesis to my actual facial expressions. 
I took these photos a little while after getting out of bed and they've made me realize that my eyes are so puffy in the morning 0-0

p.s. I finally finished and submitted an essay on Beckett's play 'Endgame', hence the title (yay for informed post titles!)

MAUS

I don't have a lot of time on my hands right now - I'm still in the middle of writing a law essay actually - but I wanted to post asap. The book this week - MAUS by Art Spiegelman. Well, actually, it's a graphic novel aka. comic book. Spiegelman retells his father's stories of life during World War II and his life in the Auschwitz camps. That's a very short description that really doesn't do it justice but you really have to give it a read! The comic style makes it very easy to engage with and it's just not like other books written about the Holocaust. Can't exactly get into too much depth here because I might bore you with a post-modern analysis but I recommend this to everyone. Really. It's so moving and interesting; and you can finish it within a day.

Sidenote: I'm wearing heels in these photos...wuuuut. Let me know what you think!

atonement

For the lack of current inspiration, I've decided to name the next few posts after the title of the book I'm reading. This way, people will look at the post and think 'Atonement? What's atonement got to do with an outfit post? Is she trying to be all deep!?' this, of course, will lead to an inevitable click of curiosity and voila! they're now a reader of my blog. That's genius self-marketing right there. 

But this doesn't mean that I've finished the previous book when I write a new post since I'm currently reading 3-4 books at the same time (English-literary-student-problems ay?). I'm halfway through 'Atonement' and so far so good! (Briony is a pain in the ass though amiright?) But alas, I'm taking a break from it and have started the next one...which you shall know from the title of the next post (..you see?).

p.s. Sorry that the colours are a bit off here, editing was a pain because despite going out around golden hour I was having some problems with the shade (evident from the one patch of sunshine) and I was rushing! If you didn't notice then none of this happened...carry on.
