If you’ve been out in Tokyo, you know exactly what this video is talking about. While Japan values hard work, people are also extremely willing to forgive drunken mishaps for this very reason.

Yet, the fact that one can lay asleep in the street and wake up with iPhones and credit cards still in possession certainly reenforces both Tokyo’s reputation as a paradise of public order and or consideration for other people no matter how intoxicated they may be.

Nevertheless, brilliant way to spread awareness of excess drinking.

Cheers to the weekend!:)

Flying over clouds

I can’t get my head out of the clouds listening to some of my favorite comforting/experimental tracks and discovering Jakob Wagner‘s photos. (See all of these much larger on his website.)

Press play, scroll, and soak these up for awhile…before Monday hits. xx

23 years young!

Things got ahead of me and I find myself catching up on writing up posts the week after they’re supposed to be up. This is what happens when you’re stuck with a fulltime  job and not very good at following up with emails. ‘Twas my birthday two weeks ago and yes, there was..not just one, but many cakes! Thank you friends! I have non-regrettably gained a few celebrating my birth this year!

happy memories captured:

..and now it’s time for Hanami season!


My set-up: Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo is the bee’s knees.

But how quickly time flies. It took me five months to post pictures of where I live. (sorry!)

Poster I bought at the UN office in Geneva that follows me everywhere..

Memories from this summer.

Pictures of family. Still in need of photos of friends!

Treasure from Bali.

Poster I bought in Japan I’m still obsessed with!

Tiny tiny kitchen.

Nothin really to post online re: my bathroom for the world to see…so here’s a peek!

Staircase to the outside.

Fancy pants shoe rack.

This is typically where I am. Right in front my air. Skyping, eating, missing people and the beautiful places I’ve bounced around the past year, and  checking airline tickets once in a while. 🙂

"There is comfort in a window. Space. A frame on life that narrows the focus and gives us a quarter-inch of separation from what's out there, and what's in here".

Here’s the tad bit of green outside of my window I am so grateful for in this concrete jungle of Tokyo!

The end!
