Well there were a few changes to last weekend's plans, but in the end, it ended up being a decent weekend.
I was originally planning on going to Nara for the weekend, but unfortunately due to the peak season, many of the hotels and hostels were booked full. Luckily, there were still some places in the local area that I hadn't seen, so it was the perfect opportunity to take advantage of being stuck here on the mountain and going down to Oita to see the Sex Museum.
Yes, the Sex Museum.
It was a very interesting experience, and I recommend people to go to the Beppu Hihokan if they get the chance. It is incredibly small, and only two stories high with not a lot to show for, but it was interesting none the less. I ended up going with three other girls and we turned it into a girls day out I guess. I won't go into too much detail since I think some younger people may be reading this (*cough my sister *cough)but there were some interesting and vivid statues, wax models, pictures, more statues, prints of people in various positions that made one of my friends very appalled and blushing red. There was even a small theater that was showing an old, old, porn movie that we all agreed was rather humorous. Afterwords, we walked around Oita and bought some snacks, ate dinner, and discussed how glad we were that none of our guy friends decided to join us on our excursion.
Yes, there's nothing like a good girls day out with ice cream and porn.
Sunday was dedicated to homework and picking up the room, watching the episodes of Grey's Anatomy that I've missed, and being my normal lazy self. I also made a poster for an event one of my friends was hosting. It was an Earth Day of sorts, and so I helped them out once they got wind that I was an art major. Nothing too fancy, the only color utensils I had were watercolor, and the paper did not handle that too well, so I had to use minimal color. The banner was small only because they had people who came to the event sign the poster.
It was a relaxing day, and I definitely am going to miss it now that exams are on the way and I've got to buckle down for serious study time.
Apart from the craziness of final exams, I am very excited to announce that we are going to OKINAWA for the quarter break. Its going to be a short trip, but a much needed one for the most part. 5 days and 4 nights at the white sandy beaches of paradise, and I haven't been this excited since I went to Mexico for my senior spring break.
However, this time, I won't have a curfew, right mom?
I'm really excited and I just hope that the weather is absolutely perfect for this trip!
Anyway, this week has been going rather slow, but I think its because I'm looking so forward to quarter break in two weeks. I've been having some headaches for the past few days, but those are also going away.
By the way, I just want all my friends back home to know how proud of you guys I am for your hard work on all of your finals and portfolios! I've seen some of everyone's work, and I'm so inspired by you! Keep it up!!
With that, I shall leave everyone with this!
