Fun day with Maiko

Maiko is a Japanese exchange student I met some months ago at a social event. She is returning home soon, so I had to see her again one last time.

We went to Suika in Vancouver, BC for lunch. I got miso ramen and it tasted great.

Even though I’ve only hung out with Maiko during that social event, she got me a gift. She is such a kind-hearted person, and so much fun to hang out with. I wish I got to see her more during the school year but life was so hectic. It’s a letter set from Japan with paper, envelopes, and stickers.

Details. This is really good quality.

I picked up a couple of cosplay things (brown short wig, and green sneakers – for Kido). We went shopping after our lunch and I also bought the video game, Star Ocean. Maiko bought way more things than me.

I’m really going to miss Maiko, but I’m glad I got to see her before she goes back to Japan.

Back

I’ve changed a little these past days. My appreciation for being alone has gone up. Loneliness is not a bad thing. 

I have increasingly become more and more disgusted by public transit and public washrooms. I wore gloves when I held onto the handles on the train and I’ll probably wear gloves in the summer as well. Sure, I’ll look weird but I don’t really care about that.

Damn, I have been quite rude to some people in the past. I’ve rejected hugs from people and also told a close friend blatantly to stop touching my arm when I was a teenager.


I am me,

and unfortunately

I don’t change for the likes of others

easily.
