Spring is coming... and with it, CHANGES ( and a shameless photo dump)

Lots of THINGS have been happening recently. There was a big goodbye party for us ECC teachers in Utsunomiya, and I've gotta admit- I had a blast. There were also some other moments that might have been relevant. Like how I MOVED TO TOKYO. No big deal. It's just MOTHER-FREAKING TOKYO. But more on that later.
Also, I'M ENROLLED IN GRAD SCHOOL. But I might have mentioned that.

ALSO! Through sheer luck and brilliant timing, I have somehow nailed down the best possible schedule for next year. Oh yeah, and I got a pretty awesome raise. So everything's coming up Vivian, professionally and educationally speaking at least. Back on the Canadian home front, there's a storm brewing... but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Here are a crap load of pictures in no discernible order!

The strangely creepy yet adorable flower-child mascot of Utsunomiya
He payed 700 yen for that damn can of pringles.
Would you like a little Creap in your coffee...? This is a coffee creamer- aptly named.
Spiral staircase to nowhere...
Preview of a new apartment :)
It's somewhere around here...
hahaha.... gross...
the cherry blossoms are back...
The umbrella parade at rush hour in Shimbashi.

And now, a shamelessly disorganized dump of the pictures from the goodbye party in Utsunomiya...

 Also, I was organizing some old flash cards at work and found these gems:

So... which is it, guys?
 That horse looks a little too keen...
And the car goes... clickety clickety clack?!?!?!

And finally, a blue sky. Which is long overdue. Spring took her sweet time this year, and she's finally arrived. I'm ready to bust out the sandals and put away the winter coat, but I won't hold my breath just yet.

東京まで, おやすみ!
