I didn’t want to spam you so I compiled my “10 things to do in Japan” illustrations for Japan Lover Me (website | facebook) in one post! (*≧▽≦)

The lists were researched and listed by Kaila, Kaye, Ashley, and Carly! ♥

*I’ll edit this post when we add more lists! :3

*We’re also going to release a JapanLovin’ Traveller’s e-book soon! :3

[ Sticky: Again, sorry for the lack of posts lately. ;3; April turned out to be the busiest month for me this year.. yet. @A@ (Commissions are still closed, by the way! (except those who reserved long ago) I’ll update you guys soon~ ;-;) ]

Only did a few of these things, I need to go back ; A;

So recently I’ve seen posts about the usage of whether or not to use the Oxford Comma. I remember coming across the dilemma in the 8th grade. My teacher then illustrated to the class why it makes more sense to use it. And so I pass on that knowledge to my followers.
I will never stop using the Oxford Comma.

IS THAT WHAT IT’S CALLED?!I always hate it when people leave out the second comma. It makes things so confusing, but I never knew the term for it.
GRAMMAR IS GREAT.

Long time no update. Been busy! My mom was visiting for most of July (hi, mom!) and we have a new addition to the family, in case you haven’t noticed. We got a new puppy! Okay, he’s not really a puppy. He’s already 6. He was my mom’s dog, and she brought him over to America to live with us. We named him Tofu. He is the best!

And my mom bought us a set of patio furniture!!! It’s so beautiful and I’m really excited to have lots of barbecues and outside parties. (Puppy parties.) Unfortunately, as soon as it arrived, the weather in SF became super cold (like, low 60s) and we haven’t really wanted to hang around outside much. But I’m sure it’ll warm up again soon, and we can enjoy our new seating!!

Also, expect a lot more photos from now on. Unless, of course, I am lazy. We got a new DSLR for relatively cheap (so many new things lately…), and it’s AMAZING. It produces gigantic photos that take forever to load, but I guess that’s a good thing…? I hate resizing photos though. Isn’t that ironic, given that it’s pretty much MY JOB?

I like you by Sandol Stoddard
I like you And I know why I like you because You are a good person To like I like you because When I tell you something special You know it’s special And you remember it A long long time You say Remember when you told me Something special And both of us remember When I think something is important You think it’s important too When I say something funny You laugh I think I’m funny and You think I’m funny too I like you because You know where I’m ticklish And you don’t tickle me there except Just a little tiny bit sometimes But if you do then I know where to tickle you too You know how to be silly That’s why I like you Boy are you ever silly I never met anybody sillier than me till I met you I like you because You know when it’s time to stop being silly Maybe day after tomorrow Maybe never Oops too late It’s quarter post silly We fool around the same way all the time Sometimes we don’t say a word We snurkle under fences We spy secret places If I am a goofus on the roofus Hollering my head off You are one too If I pretend I am drowning You pretend you are saving me If I am getting ready to pop a paper bag Then you are getting to jump That’s because You really like me You really like me Don’t you And I really like you back And you like me back And I like you back And that’s the way we keep on going Every day If you go away then I go away too Or if I stay home You send me a postcard You don’t just say Well see you around Some time Bye I like you a lot because of that If I go away I send you a postcard too And I like you because If we go away together And if we are in Grand Central Station And if I get lost then you are the one that is yelling for me Hey where are you Here I am And I like you because When I am feeling sad You don’t always cheer me up right away Sometimes it is better to be sad You can’t stand the others being so googly and gaggly every single minute You want to think about things It takes time I like you because if I am mad at you Then you are mad at me too It’s awful when the other person isn’t They are so nice and hoo-hoo you could just about punch them in the nose I like you because if I think I am going to throw up then you are really sorry You don’t just pretend you are busy looking at the birdies and all that You say maybe it was something you ate You say same thing happened to me one time And the same thing did If you find two four-leaf clovers You give me one If I find four I give you two If we only find three We keep on looking Sometimes we have good luck And sometimes we don’t If I break my arm and If you break your arm too Then it is fun to have a broken arm I tell you about mine You tell me about yours We are both sorry We write our names and draw pictures We show everybody and they wish they had a broken arm too I like you because I don’t know why but Everything that happens Is nicer with you I can’t remember when I didn’t like you It must have been lonesome then I like you because because I forget why I like you But I do So many reasons On the Fourth of July I like you because It’s the Fourth of July On the Fifth of July I like you too If you and I had some drums And some horns and some horses If we had some hats and some Flags and some fire-engines We could be a HOLIDAY We could be a CELEBRATION We could be a WHOLE PARADE See what I mean? Even if it was the nine-hundred-and-ninety-ninth of July Even if it was August Even if it was way down at the bottom of November Even if it was no place particular in January I would go on choosing you And you would go on choosing me Over and over again That’s how it would happen every time I don’t know why I guess I don’t know why I like you really Why do I like you I guess I just like you I guess I just like you Because I like you

I like you by Sandol Stoddard

I like you
And I know why
I like you because
You are a good person
To like
I like you because
When I tell you something special
You know it’s special
And you remember it
A long long time
You say
Remember when you told me
Something special
And both of us remember
When I think something is important
You think it’s important too
When I say something funny
You laugh
I think I’m funny and
You think I’m funny too
I like you because
You know where I’m ticklish
And you don’t tickle me there
except
Just a little tiny bit
sometimes
But if you do then I know where to tickle you too
You know how to be silly
That’s why I like you
Boy are you ever silly
I never met anybody sillier than me
till I met you
I like you because
You know when it’s time to stop being silly
Maybe day after tomorrow
Maybe never
Oops too late
It’s quarter post silly
We fool around the same way all the time
Sometimes we don’t say a word
We snurkle under fences
We spy secret places
If I am a goofus on the roofus
Hollering my head off
You are one too
If I pretend I am drowning
You pretend you are saving me
If I am getting ready to pop a paper bag
Then you are getting to jump
That’s because
You really like me
You really like me
Don’t you
And I really like you back
And you like me back
And I like you back
And that’s the way we keep on going
Every day
If you go away
then I go away too
Or if I stay home
You send me a postcard
You don’t just say
Well see you around
Some time
Bye
I like you a lot
because of that
If I go away
I send you a postcard too
And I like you because
If we go away together
And if we are in Grand Central Station
And if I get lost
then you are the one that is yelling for me
Hey where are you
Here I am
And I like you because
When I am feeling sad
You don’t always cheer me up right away
Sometimes it is better to be sad
You can’t stand the others being so googly and gaggly
every single minute
You want to think about things
It takes time
I like you because if I am mad at you
Then you are mad at me too
It’s awful when the other person isn’t
They are so nice and hoo-hoo you could just about
punch them in the nose
I like you because if I think I am going to
throw up then you are really sorry
You don’t just pretend you are busy looking at
the birdies and all that
You say maybe it was something you ate
You say same thing happened to me one time
And the same thing did
If you find two four-leaf clovers
You give me one
If I find four
I give you two
If we only find three
We keep on looking
Sometimes we have good luck
And sometimes we don’t
If I break my arm and
If you break your arm too
Then it is fun to have a broken arm
I tell you about mine
You tell me about yours
We are both sorry
We write our names and draw pictures
We show everybody and they wish they had a broken arm too
I like you because
I don’t know why but
Everything that happens
Is nicer with you
I can’t remember when I didn’t like you
It must have been lonesome then
I like you because because
I forget why I like you
But I do
So many reasons
On the Fourth of July I like you because
It’s the Fourth of July
On the Fifth of July
I like you too
If you and I had some drums
And some horns and some horses
If we had some hats and some
Flags and some fire-engines
We could be a HOLIDAY
We could be a CELEBRATION
We could be a WHOLE PARADE
See what I mean?
Even if it was the
nine-hundred-and-ninety-ninth of July
Even if it was August
Even if it was way down at the bottom of November
Even if it was no place particular in January
I would go on choosing you
And you would go on choosing me
Over and over again
That’s how it would happen every time
I don’t know why
I guess I don’t know why I like you really
Why do I like you
I guess I just like you
I guess I just like you
Because I like you

Totally loving the balloons tied up all over the office! Can this be every day?
Today was a surprise “Delivery Team Appreciation Day!” I walked in this morning to find balloons all over our side of the office and a giant hand-drawn sign taped up to the wall by my desk. And we had free pizza at lunch!
Later tonight, I’ll be off to a Lulu*s clothing swap with my friend, Amanda.
Balloons, free food, and free clothes. All in all, a good day.

New Warby Parker glasses!
Yes, I finally, finally, finally bought them. They were long overdue. For anyone that remembers the “Which glasses should I get?” post way back when, I did end up getting the Winstons.
I’m in absolute love with them and am definitely planning on ordering more glasses from Warby Parker.
A special thanks to my friend Sarah, for helping me get around prescription verification policies. ;)

I love e.e. cummings

let it go – the
smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise – let it go it
was sworn to
go

let them go – the
truthful liars and
the false fair friends
and the boths and
neithers – you must let them go they
were born
to go

let all go – the
big small middling
tall bigger really
the biggest and all
things – let all go
dear

so comes love
