San Antonio: June 28th ~ July 3rd

Hello, humans💜

How’s summer treating you? I have been having a great summer. Not only did I get to go on vacation this last week to San Antonio, I’m going to be at a camp for about 3 weeks this month. Well, I guess this trip wasn’t quite a vacation. I went to compete in Nationals for FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America). It was a very nice retreat regardless. Have you gone on vacation? If so, where did you go?

It was quite the interesting trip. I hope you guys enjoy the pics!

Alright. Enjoy.

Japan VS US: SCHOOL

Hello, beautiful persons.

I have been homesick for Japan lately… I miss my family and the entire enviornment there. In case you’re new here or just didn’t know, my mom’s entire side of the family is in Japan. Like, everyone. She is the only person from her family in the States. Which makes me half Japanese(side note: the way Japan has things right now, when I turn 22 I have to choose Japanese citizenship or American citizenship because they don’t allow dual citizenship. Petition!! Please.). I’ve been privileged enough to be able to experience elementary and junior high there, and there are a lot of differences between Japanese schools and American schools. A disclaimer, though, when I say “experienced” school in Japan, I’ve attended for about 2 weeks every summer.  Also, this is all based off of what happened to me and the schools I went to. I’m sure there are different things and more similar things about schools in Japan and US depending on where you go:) Fun fact: I actually visited a Japanese school before an American school! (granted, it was a kindergarten tour thingy…) So here is Japan vs USA schooling! Comment/like if you think I should make Japan vs US a series!

3 Items You Can’t Afford to Lose During Vacation

Hello, lovely readers. It’s Sera(um… who else? I confuse myself.), and we are back in the United States too soon. A few events have happened over the course of these last 3 weeks and few days (no way, Sera!! What were all of those BORING posts about?), so I figured I’d say a little something about specific events. To correspond with that, I decided to write up a list on things that can be detrimental to your vacation if lost.

Shinkansen Travels: June 3rd~7th

Hello friends and welcome to another post! Today I have, like, a weeks worth to post about so I think I’m going to have separate it up into different days… this is due to my mum purchasing a JR pass for one week. JR trains are the main way of travel in Japan, and the passes are a really affordable way to get around. Anywho, we had to squish basically all our travel into one week to fit into the time frame.
