Box of Stones by Benjamin Francis Leftwich

Another weekend has swiftly come to an end! The first February weekend...which means that in a little over a month I'll be on a plane to Japan! Can't wait can't wait can't wait....!!

My weekend was filled with lots of studying (and, ahem, anime watching). Yesterday I had the opportunity to go to the Old Globe Theatre (not the one in London) to see Pygmalion (the play that My Fair Lady was based on), one of my favorite plays. It was hilarious and I was happy that they chose to end it in a more feminist rather than traditionally romantic way. Also, the actor playing Henry Higgins was Robert Sean Leonard from Dead Poets Society (one of my favorite films) and the television series House (he played Wilson, Hugh Laurie's friend...too bad Hugh Laurie wasn't also in this play!). All the actors were fantastic and I laughed the whole way through. Going to shows is always so fun! 

Happy Monday...back to work ;-)

Galileo Galilei - Imaginary Friends

I often put this song on repeat. It's in Japanese and I don't understand all of the words, but it is so incredibly beautiful and moving.
