I stole all these pictures from Ayabean
For the last couple of years I've had big blow-out parties on my birthday. This year I was just so over that. I tried to have a picnic but it got rained out. In the end I spent the weekend with Aya, Chie, and Kei. We had a takoyaki party Saturday night and spent Sunday in Kamakura. I was excited to see the ocean and visit Benzaiten's shrine with friends who are all into art and shit. It was such a perfect day. I'm lucky to know such brilliant people here.
It was the best birthday ever. I am really excited to be 24. I'm in such an impassioned and engaged state of mind and I'm so happy to be living in Tokyo. Right now there is just no other place for me.
