It's been already 5 months(whaaaaat!?) since I came back from Spain. Time definitely does fly that it even scares me sometimes.
Taking half a year longer than everyone else, I finally graduated from my university with my Economics and Marketing degree in September. The graduation day was a little quiet because most of my university friends had already graduated in March, which is the usual graduation month in Japan.
Although I couldn't graduate with them in time , I do not regret the decision I made because I had a amaaaaazzinggg year in Spain making new friends with different language, different culture, and different everything, traveling almost every month to different cities in Europe meeting the locals, trying new food I'd never tried before and partying every other night was of course one of the best parts. Honestly I wish I could repeat that part of my life again and again.
Since I came back to Japan, I've been working part time and looking for a job to start from the new year and finally last week, my long job hunting period came to an end. It's a bit sad not to be able to call myself a student anymore but I'm at the same time I'm very excited about what's waiting for me.
Although it might a little too early for new years resolutions, I'd like to leave myself a list of goals and advice from the experiences I had this year.
1. Open a book before start overthinking stuff. Overthinking just wastes the time and doesn't change the result.
2. Don't choose the easier path but the one that makes you smarter and stronger.
3. Don't make an important decision when you're in a bad mood.
4. Learn to be patient.
5. Treat people around you good.
6. Keep on learning languages. No excuses no matter how busy you are.
7. Make time to travel.
8. Don't cut your hair.
9. Throw away the things that you haven't used for a long time. Learn to spend money on things with good quality.
10. Listen more, talk less.
Anyway, here are the pictures from the shooting I had on my graduation day in one of my favorite spots in Tokyo, Shibuya.
To be honest doing a photo shooting wearing a traditional Japanese kimono at the Shibuya scramble crossing has always been a big dream of mine and it finally came true! I really appreciate the photographer Arisa Sakai for her great work.
I really like how it looks like I timetraveled to the modern city of Tokyo from the Edo era or something. I hope you all like the photos as much as I do !
Thanks for reading and I wish you all a great Christmas and New Years!!!
