-- There weren't very many of these flowers... but I can easily say that these ones are my favorites out of the bunch. The flower displays such a nice shade of purple, and the petals are just so... spiky!
The color just makes the flower seem very independent, or dreamlike. [Note: Should I maybe rename this to "From a Dream"? Would that fit better?]

-- Can you see what\'s hidden in this picture? Hahaha~ It\'s like those old kids\' magazines with the find-it games on the back. ;D Originally, I had simply intended to take a picture of the flowers, but it\'s kind of cool how there was a bug there too.

-- A lady came by in her white pick-up truck to tell people not to get very close to the Haystack Rock because the tide was coming in. She didn't say anything about the people's safety, she said she was concerned about the puffins and how they'd get back to their nests if there were so many people around. Hahaha~ Puffins. :3
I could have taken a darker picture... in fact, I probably should have. This looks a little washed out to me. Maybe I just like darker pictures.

-- This year, just like the past few years, I spent New Year's Day at my "cousin's" cousin's house. I've known Mari ("cousin") since she was born and this is her cousin, Hannah's, house. Since almost everyone there was Japanese or at least half Japanese most of us understand what oshogatsu is. It's basically the celebration of the new year on the first day of the year. Lots of good food with lots of symbolism like long life, old age, vitality, fertility, and strength.
-- Whenever I go to a Chinese restaurant and people ask me what I like, I always answer "shrimp fried rice!" because that's definitely my favorite. My dad can't eat it though... and I was the only one to eat it in a party of maybe 9 people? At least I had leftovers for breakfast the next day!
