I’m Going to Japan! \((( ̄( ̄( ̄▽ ̄) ̄) ̄)))/ヤッター!

I wanted to make this announcement in April but I had to make certain before I dropped the bomb 😛


I was accepted to study abroad in Kyoto this summer and I leave May 12th. I still can’t believe this is happening and I wanted to share this news with all of you.

I can’t even believe this is happening. I can reunite with my friends after 10 years-an entire DECADE O.o  and I can improve my Japanese.

Thank you again for reading my blog and I promise to continue reviewing otoge. Due to my classes I won’t have a Hakuoki Kyoto Winds review up but I promise to get to it after I return.

If anyone has any recommendations for beating the heat and cheap places to get food and manga/otome merch PLEASE let me know ^^ Thank you!

I will be blogging about my trip to Japan and this will likely go onto a menu at the top so please look forward to that ^^

If you like what you see please follow or share. Thank you!!!
