Spring is coming!

So life after winter vacation feels pretty dull and anti-climatic. I am currently sick with a cold I am pretty sure I caught in China and I have to get back into the routine of going to class! Me: "Studying what?? You want me to memorize how many new vocab words!?"...yup that pretty much sums up my first few days of class. bleh

But, spring is in the air in Osaka. It is still cold but there is a definite warmth to the air. I know I don't blog hardly ever, but it is a new semester and a fresh start! Lots of pictures are now in the evidence section.

Winter break was amazing. Despite my hair disaster in the beginning :/ And China was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. An emotion and physical roller coaster, but I survived and I am stronger now for it! Oh yeah and you know its spring when the Cherry Blossoms start to appear....sort of! Cherry Blossom and green tea flavored kit-kats yum!
