LIFE UPDATE!
Hey my dear readers,

I hope you're still reading this since I've been silent for quite some time. I was super super busy with writing and planning things to work out in the end so I thought a little update on my life would be nice for you to read :) Actual picture to proof that I'm alive:



Fresh after the hairdresser :D Do you think I should keep the color..? It's really hard to maintain because my hair is growing fast and my roots are showing so soon ;_; I thought about chopping my hair off again and maybe going dark again.... ah, but I really don't know .___.""

I finally finished my bachelor's thesis (YAAAAAAAAAY!).  125 pages, over 100 footmarks and there's just so much blood and sweat in it, I can't believe I'm done. Actually my friends and my bf had to stop me because I always kept doing changes and do something different again and again and again... you can always make it better! But I had to stop somewhen. Plus, I really need to give this in because I need my certificate before the end of September for the university in Japan.  If you wondered what I wrote about.... it's the translation and annotation of an ethic's textbook (100 pages) from 1942. Yes, I translated that whole god damn thing. Sooo much trouble. But worth the effort since there is a lot of Nationalism going on in that time which I, academically speaking, find very interesting. :)

Sorry for bad pic, it's almost dark outside but I didn't wanna wait another day... :3 The title is "Of Good Children (yoi kodomo) and the Cultivation of the Self (shûshin) An Ethics Reading Primer for the First and Second Year of Primary Education 1942." I did print it out today and made 4 copies (3 to give in, one for myself... because.. I didn't write a freaking half of a year and then never see that damn thing again, no no.) I have to say.... I'm so proud of myself!!! ^____^ It feels sooooo good. I will give it in on Monday and hopefully get my certificate somewhen in late August or September.

Despite that, I was on the hunt for a flat in Bonn! That was soooo nervwrecking and exhausting for me. I have lived with my mom like always and then just moved with my boyfriend so I never had the trouble of looking for a flat... I first wanted to share a flat with others (because: cheaper, I thought) but Bonn is just sooo expensive they wanted 450€ for a room(!) in a flat with others. Dear lord, no. I had lots of Skype and email chats but I finally found a really really nice flat for myself! ^-^ Actually it's sublease; it's a house where a mother lives with his son but she sublets a part of the house (2 rooms, bathroom and cooking corner) for single use so it is basically a flat. I mailed with the mother back and forth and she seemed a really sweet person I so look forward to live there! Also, it's only 6 kilometers away from the university and I might be able to go there by bicycle everyday :)  

Although I had quite some busy times preparing for my master's course (and finishing my bachelor's degree) it's so fulfilling to actually do and accomplish something. I feel great. The trouble was so worth it. I have a lot to blog about, and since I will be on vacation soon to relax I'll write a handful of posts beforehand, it's been silent for long enough here! :) 

I hope you're all doing great and I miss talking to you all!
Lots of love,

Sam

oh, hello there. i'm yasuhiro mochizuki and i'm the cool kid who made this layout. i'd rather you not attempt to take this code and alter it or take this code, strip it down, and use it as a base code. if you really need a base code that badly, feel free to send me an email with what type of base code you need and we can talk about it. that said, i can't take credit for absolutely everything here. so here are all the dope resources i used here: all of the fonts used in this layout can be credited to google fonts save for calibri, which is a system font. the social media sidebar links were created using an icon font from we ♡ icon fonts. most scripts used can be found through a good google search, except for the script that gives the page it's tabs; i don't remember whether i hand coded that or if i found it through another blogger. if you're privy, you can find me predominantly on twitter and occasionally on my blog. toodles!
