Oh, doesn’t that look so delicious? Welcome to Weekly Wishes: Food Edition! I got the idea for this after I tweeted about food. But before I get into that, lets review the past week.
My goals from last week included spending time with friends and family, while remaining off my phone, and studying Japanese. I’m happy to say that it was a success! I put spent minimal time on my phone the past week. The times I did use it were when I was by myself. I’m proud of myself! I would usually check my phone even when there was no need to. I would just scroll up and down Facebook and Twitter even though I knew that no one would be in contact with me. This is a bad habit I really want to break because it takes time from being with other people. Not to mention, it’s a big time waster overall. The past week, I also spent more time with my family and friends all over the place. It was a fun and productive week and I would like to continue this for the next two weeks. Although, I’m a little sad we didn’t have family game night. This week, for sure!
As for Japanese, I studied for a few hours (in total… that’s probably not that good for learning a language…) and watched my dramas. Hey, I consider watching dramas as studying. I mean, I’m practicing my listening skills right? I will continue reviewing and watching this week. If you have any advice on studying languages, please let me know! I feel like I’m terrible at it. It takes me forever to remember grammar points and vocabulary or to come up with sentences when I’m speaking. Listening is a whole different ball game. It’s my goal, eventually, to be able to understand and speak Japanese, so I have to keep striving to keep learning!
What’s in store for this week? What does ‘Food Edition’ mean? Okay, my goal for this week isn’t all that inspiring or sentimental, but earlier I tweeted this:
For the next two weeks, I need to eat everything I won’t be able to eat in Japan. Where to start?

That basically sums up one of my goals for the next two weeks: eat everything I can’t eat in Japan. Melyssa pitched in and told me, eat Mexican and sandwiches. Those foods I really love, so I will definitely have to start on those.
My goals for this week: Eat. Hangout. Study Japanese.
