I ordered a Nintendo Switch Lite (yellow) from a Japanese electronics store

I ordered it from Yodobashi Camera, a huge Japanese retail electronics store. And I’ll be getting their Yodobashi Xtreme treatment: same day priority delivery. Apparently, on Friday morning, a man in a black jumper is supposed to drive up to my house in one of these vehicles to deliver my Switch Lite. Unfortunately, I couldn’t…

My thoughts as a noob blogger of one month

Photo blogging is not “my thing” but it’s an interesting art form nonetheless Taking photos does not come naturally to me.

On death and Tokyo and Saturday evenings (semi-poem)

The sun is setting. I can hear the cicadas from my bed. In the winter I literally went to YouTube just to listen to them but now they’re screaming at you 18 hours a day. Which I guess is natural considering they all die in 5 days after birth. I would scream if I knew…
