I know, I know, hold your laughter at my ingenious toilet sign...
These are the thank you cards and photos I have from my students ^-^
Polaroids of students and drinking buddies ^^
The essentials; booze, bento and tea ^-^
I'm finding myself head over heels for the 100Yen store right now; nothing in the apartment that I had to buy (the tablecloth, the pegs and basket, the tea-tin, amongst others) has been over 100Yen which has really been a help while I wait for the rest of my pay. Once that gets here I'll go to Loft and get some cute bits that cost a little more but I can't knock the cheap stores for cute stuff that makes an apartment feel homey! It's especially good to take advantage of seeing as I don't know if I'll be here after April in case my visa application is unsuccessful; I won't have spent a fortune on stuff and I can happily leave it behind... all except the best bits anyway!
But I just keep thinking to myself... I have my very first apartment... and it's in Japan... wtf?! LOL
