The dishes from Christmas dinner need to be put away. I keep staring out of the curtained window, like I'm waiting for something to happen. What is it artists use to record their videos? Do I even want to push my art into the world and jump on that bandwagon? A composition I threw together… Continue reading Hey! What’ve you been up to?!
Inspired by one of the fellows I follow here on WordPress, I thought I would type out a quick update on my life. Slow, indeed! My days seem to pass as thickly as molasses. There is no pressure to complete work and projects. I didn't mention in my last post, but school is to be… Continue reading You snooze, you lose, Slow News.
"Give me liberty or give me death" certainly wasn't how I thought I'd start this out, but it came to mind anyway. I suppose it fits the current situation nonetheless. Everyone is aware that the coronavirus is wreaking mayhem across the globe. It's seeping into our already weakened economic sectors, scaring politicians into denial, and… Continue reading Give me corona, or give me soap!
It dawned on me that I should probably write about my meal before posting it to Instagram saying there is, indeed, a blog post detailing the ingredients.

Unfortunately, the items… Continue reading Ashley Goes to the Konbini

What do you think of when you hear the word “curry?” Ann Curry? Tim Curry? Curry with naan? I bet you weren’t aware that one of the staple dishes in Japan is curry. That’s right! I’m not talking about a stereotype here. Curry in Japan is a soul food – kids roll up their sleeves… Continue reading Hurry! Get your curry!
Once upon a time, there was a sporadic blogger who disappeared. She was found a year later, quietly rotting away from overwork and self-imposed stress. If you listen closely, you can hear the tapping from the keys on her laptop and the frantic clicking of her mouse. She now serves as a living reminder to… Continue reading A Weekend Diary: The Backwoods
Hello! And Happy New Year! In Japanese, we say, 「明けましておめでとうございます。」(akemashite omedetou gozaimasu) and is often shortened to 「おめでとうございます。」(omedetou gozaimasu). When you see a friend or a family member for the first time in the new year, you are required to say it. You're also welcome to extend the politeness to strangers but it's not necessary.… Continue reading 100-yen Splurge
Before I forget what happened, let me tell you about my day. Grab yourself a hot beverage, preferably seasoned with marshmallows, and make yourself comfortable. I wish I could tell you to rest your feet by the fire, but I hope my electric heater will suffice. Today was a bruiser. Last night, I simply couldn’t… Continue reading The Bread Knife.
