Porphyrin Prince

My name is Joshua. I am from England, but currently study Japanese at a school in Tokyo. I microblog about that, and reblog other beautiful, curious and disgusting things.

I was sent home from school, sick, today. Being sick in this dormitory is extremely boring. I accidentally left all of my books under my desk at school. The wifi/my notebook can’t handle videos or games. I’ve been trapping all the cockroaches under bottle lids, but I don’t know what to do with them now. And I planned to visit some art galleries today. uou

However, I had an amazing day yesterday. 3 hours of Japanese language lessons (I’m getting good grades now uwu), followed by calligraphy, yukata and tea ceremony lessons. I want to buy my own yukata. I also finally figured out what I’m doing with my life. I think I’m going to try to finish my degree after all, then apply for Japanese language scholarships, and join a circus until I am accepted by one.

And I decided to go for my ball-joint sleeve in wood grain, after someone pointed out it would be more like that of an artist’s mannequin; and to get another tattoo of a keyhole set in a fancy plate on my back.

Lux shampoo does strange things to my hair. It looks interesting, but feels disgusting. If anyone knows a better Japanese shampoo please let me know.

I was told off for using a pen uou so I bought a mechanical pencil and now my writing is actually intelligible and fits on the line. ^w^ My homework is really easy today, so I’ll try to get ahead of tomorrow’s lesson. Studying makes me so happy. Art school was a mistake.

My Japanese seems to be improving quickly~ The other night I ended up with some Swedish guys in Burger King (here they serve fries with both cheese and bacon!) and I had translate for everyone. Today I went shopping in Harajuku, and managed to sustain quite a long conversation, including several topic changes, with the sales girl in Liz Lisa. uwu

Liz Lisa’s new Fancy Girl range is amazing; I am in love with a pair of navy suede platform shoes, embroidered with music notes, and with pompoms on the toes. My friend bought two camisoles from the range, and more from others. But I’m not allowing myself to impulse buy anything expensive. I went to Closet Child, but I couldn’t fit into any of the cute shorts they had in stock (I’d like to try again when I’m not wearing relatively thick ball-joint tights, but I’m not getting my hopes up). I bought Meta’s Bunny Striped otks in two colours, but I spent the most at Wonder Rocket, including an offwhite overdress/apron. I’m also tempted to go back and buy one of their vintage illustration t-shirts, but I’m torn between the well-dressed boy making a telephone call, and the less well-dressed boy playing with building blocks because he has the same hair as me.
