After the finals

Three days ago, I finished all my classes.
The final project I commited for the last few months was such a hardcore!
The final paper for the project was 23 pages long, which was the biggest paper I've ever written in my life.
I stayed over for two days at the school computer lab in order to finish the paper.
I turned in the paper, then, finally officially I graduated!

I was waiting to open the box of my new camera until my finals were over, and I finally opened it.
I was out on the town with new camera and I had so much fun this weekend with friends, and booze.

Matt just moved and i went to see it. His new apartment is so cool, isn't it?

He celebrated my graduation and made a bloody mary for me.

I added hot source in it and it was so good!
It's a very misterious drink.

With Brandon and Thalia.
After that we went to soul night and my friends celebrated my graduation.
Thank you frineds!
But why my face is so white in this photo?
I have gotten away from goth ever since halloween.

Next day i went to Lindsay's birthday party.
I like a house party and I will miss it because Japan doesn't have a house party.

Happy Birthday, Lindsay!

After that I joined to the girls stayover party at Jupiter, but as soon as I got there, I passed out.

Next morning after we woke up, we hanged out on the bed for a while.
It was my first time to stay at Jupiter, and it was much nicer than I expected.
I thought it was Ikea hotel, but it was moderately stylish and cozy.

It's the view from window of the Jupiter.
Can you tell how cold the morning was?

On the way home from Jupiter, I stopped by Compound and I went to lunch to the diner in NW with Matt and Katsu.
His plate was so American breakfast, eggs, toasts, gravy, sausage, and hash browns.

Meanwhile I had the waffle and it was so good.
I was so hungry, so i just kept eating and listening their talking.

Next day I went to watch the film called urban bike shorts, which consisted of about 8 short films.

The film was so cool. The performance of the pist bike in urban life, Japanese Keirin(bike race) culture, old fiml from 80's of a funny guy riding bike with guiter and accordion, music video with the creeply animals and the girl riding cruisers, things like that.
Bike culture is so popular now, and in the film I saw some hipsters did super rough and almost impossible bike ride in the traffic.
It was so rude and dangerous!

Of course it was the perforance for the film but I know some people actually do that in the real life!- I think bike riders in Portland are mostly low key though.
I like cyclists, bike culture, also I love my bike and myself riding the bike.
But i don't want to ride a bike for fashion, well... maybe it's part of my fashion, but i don't want to be a selfish rider.
Anyway, the film was well done and I enjoyed it a lot.

And today when I woke up and opened the blind in my room, the view I saw was all white!
All day today I stayed at home and warmed up.
I cleaned up my room and kitchen, baking and cooking with my roommates and friends.
It was a peaceful snowy day.

what a great epic entry to satisfy my jones!

i miss portland so much sometime.

our apartment in tokyo is going to be a little portland haven in japan, okay? we'll always be listening to indie music and our friends will be like "SHUT UP WE KNOW IN PORTLAND IT'S BLAH BLAH BLAH WE GET IT"

i never wanted to be one of those cliche "yaaaaaaa i'm from portlannnnnnd?" (do you recognize that voice) types, but now that i'm so far away, it can't be helped. i suspect it will be the same for you. probably worse.

miss you!
