Hello friends! Six years ago today I posted my first blog on this place. This called for some photo-ops blogger-style! I am wayyyy too self conscious for pictures on the blog, but I’ve realised that six years of keeping up with something is a pretty big feat. Now, some would say talking to yourself about life on the internet for a couple of years is hardly a big deal. But it is a pretty big deal for me. I NEVER keep up with anything. Except this. So hey… I got myself one of those horribly tacky balloons so that I can celebrate accordingly. Because, of course you absolutely need a tacky balloon to celebrate your achievements!

I’m spending the next couple of days in Paris with a friend. I’ve actually been debating taking this tacky balloon with me… you know, for the lolz.

Expect a lot of celebratory pictures of cake — and maybe a few sentimental stories here and there this summer. I just wanted to thank you guys for keeping up with me! Even though I’ve vowed to myself that I am blogging purely for my own joy and sanity, your kind words definitely keep me going. x

April is stress awareness month. I’ve been planning and planning — in my head — on how to incorporate that into my life and blog. I wanted to make a little something that would help me, and maybe any other person, to be more conscious of (my) time and life and energy. It’s been two years since I’ve put some thought into stress awareness month, and that was the last time I blogged about it. Isn’t that ironic, huh?

Another thing that has been a while, is pouring my soul into a blog again. The scarce Japan-blogs have a hint of that sparkle in there — only if that’s mostly because I felt a lot when I took the pictures during my travels in Japan. I want to make this work. Whatever this is. So bear with me… here is that little something. Maybe as an ode to stress-awareness and how it shouldn’t be just a month, but a continuous thing.
