Which Do You Prefer?

Which Do You Prefer?

In the past two weeks I’ve had two guys call it quits, and surprisingly they used the exact same lame excuse. As a result, I’ve decided to take a break from dating this holiday season. Winter illuminations have taken over Tokyo, and I rather experience them alone than with some guy who will disappear after less than a handful of dates. So, enjoy this dating update since it shall (potentially) be the last one of the year. Sake Master If …

Plátano Power And Supporting the Arts

I haven’t really given much of an update because I don’t have much to report. After months of averaging three day work weeks, my last few weeks have been extremely busy. I have had a day and night class almost every night for the last two weeks. I even worked this past Saturday and Sunday. Nevertheless, I’ve still managed to squeeze in some fun these last few weekends. Both of them were very different and each had their own theme….

What is Love?

What is Love?

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about my dating life and not for a lack thereof. For months I always feel like I’m playing catch-up. Well, I’m just not writing much about anything so when I do write it is never about dates. Alright here’s a collection of short stories. Enjoy! Wolf on Wall Street I met this guy on Tinder. I initially wasn’t super excited about our date. However, he looked much better in person, albeit much shorter…

Walk This Way, Talk This Way

Walk This Way, Talk This Way

In my last dating update I wrote about a French guy. We had two dates, and days after the movie date we stopped texting. I wanted to get to know him, told him I wanted to see him again to which he said nothing. I didn’t text him and nor he me and just like that, things fizzled. So, I took a break. I started going to meet ups and binge watch anime. Ok, maybe not the best idea. Although…

Brace Yourself: A Super Long Post is Coming

Brace Yourself: A Super Long Post is Coming

I know, I’ve been so lazy about posting. The worst part is, I only work a few days a week! I definitely have time to write, but I feel like I should instead use that time for studying Japanese. Granted, you can really only effectively study so long everyday. I deleted social media apps from my phone or turned off the notifications in an effort to be more productive. So far, I think it’s working. I mean, I am blogging,…

Sorry Miss Jackson

Sorry Miss Jackson

Sunday night I went on my very first date in Japan. If you haven’t keep up with my blog, my last official date was October. That makes…..6 months? Wow, time really flies by. After tonight I would be more than okay with waiting another 6 months before going on another date. You know, maybe if I had some really great dates every once in a while I wouldn’t be so turned off to dating. Anyway, Outkast specifically requested that I…

Surviving Superman

Almost exactly one year ago, a really great guy ended things via a whatsapp text message. In the days leading up to the break up text, he was distant; I could feel him starting to pull away. Yet, I also tend to over analyze everything so I took a chill pill and told myself it was all in my head and he was probably just busy. Yeah, busy trying to fade out from my life after he repeatedly told me that he…

Lifestyles of the Rich and the Famous

So I had this pseudo date last night and I’m not really sure what to make of it. A bit of back story, I met this guy over the summer on a dating site, but the timing was off and we never met. We made plans one day and he ghosted/flaked/whatever term people are using. Turns out he ended up dating someone else and wanted to be respectful to that relationship. Except he didn’t tell me that until, finally, a…

Say My Name

Say My Name

So, the first time I went out with the lawyer (Click here if you haven’t read it). I had a date the very next morning with a French Canadian translator. It was all so sudden and we had a conversation about dim sum. I had been back from Hong Kong about a week, where I had my first dim sum experience, and I was obsessed. He invited me to grab dim sum the next day, and on a whim, I accepted….

Yesterday Orlando had Calle Orlando, a music festival similar to Miami’s Calle Ocho. An acquaintance of mine not only informed me of the festival but asked if I’d like to join him and spend the afternoon walking around and dancing. I thought it sounded like a great idea, especially since 1. the weather had been perfect lately 2.  Tono Rosario, Puerto Rican Power, and Elvis Crespo were performing 3. It breaks up my monotonous weekends and gets me out of…
