Fall semester at SCAD-Atlanta is kicking off nicely. I already have a ton of work to do, but it's all fun.
I went with Erin Gladstone, Cara McGee, and Falynn Koch to Japanfest at the Gwinett convention center this afternoon. We watched some guy put on a one man show, where he enthusiastically played all four roles (the princess, the villain, the hero Aishu Kamen, and False Aishu Kamen). He also did some juggling, tightrope walking, and quick changes in an onstage tent WITHOUT EVER CLOSING THE FLAP. It was the hardest I've laughed in a while, yo. Love! Justice!! Aishu Kamen!!! Had some delicious takoyaki and black milk bubble tea. I really really wanted some mochi and some onigiri what bad, but they were sold out. I wanted to buy everything!! So much cute Japanese stuff at the booths!!! Hello Kitties, Tare Pandas, other kitties, Totoros, Nintendo controller wallets, catbus hats, pencil cases, everyeveryeverything. I did end out getting a soot sprite and two books, but I could have spent a small fortune on all the stuff I wanted.
Today was also my first time to H-Mart. I feel like I can never shop at a regular grocery store again. I just want udon noodles, mochi, fresh squid and scallops, and onigiri for the rest of my life. And I want everything packed in a Hello Kitty bento box.
I will definitely have to go to Japan soon.
