Highs and Low(e)s

Me in the rain at the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo. 

Highs:

  1. JAPAN! I've been off the grid for a couple of weeks because it was fashion week and I was working heaps, and then I went to JAPAN! I want to do a post about what I did so I won't really talk about it right now, I will just tell you that it was a great place to visit. 
  2. I've got a new TV show for you to watch and it is called Better Things. It's funny, entertaining, easy as to binge watch (the episodes are only like, 24 mins long) and it's an all female lead cast which is awesome. 
  3. I got upgraded on my flight to Tokyo! I mean, I was a Silver Air NZ Airpoints member ('was' being the operative word in that sentence) so I had a free standby upgrade, but I never know if I'm ever going to get those things but I DID I DID I DID YAY!
  4. I made a quiche today. 
  5. I finished an article that is due tomorrow, this afternoon, which is approximately 18 hours earlier than needed, which is basically a miracle. 
  6. JOHN CAMPBELL! What a great guy. I always forget about listening to/watching Checkpoint because I'm usually at work when it starts but I watched the Radio NZ election coverage and I was reminded that John Campbell is the man and one time he came to Shenanigan and it was my birthday and he said happy birthday to me and you know, it was the best. 

 

Low(e)s:

  1. This is a full overshare but have any of you been on Doxycycline? It's an antibioitic. I've been on it for maybe 2.5 weeks now, for my skin. I mean, I'm not entirely sure if it's working (maybe my expectations are too high but I'm looking for a flawless face here) but I definitely know I'm taking them because MAN the side effects are crazy! They kind of make you feel like you're going to throw up, nauseous and that. You also get sun sensitive. It's fucked.
  2. Speaking of the doctor, I had this freak leg pain in the middle of the night a few days after I got home from Japan and then I had a panic about how I might have Deep Vein Thrombosis (I'm maybe a little bit of a hypochondriac) so I went to the doctor and she said I'm probably fine and took my blood pressure and all that stuff and then got me to go get a blood test, my absolute WORST. I hate veins and needles (blood I am fine with) and then I had a trainee nurse, I was so sweaty and teary the whole time, what an ordeal.
  3. I don't think I should talk about the election.
  4. My trusty Fuji camera died in Japan, RIP Fuji.
