Happy 1st of the month! We renewed our lease today and our rent went up by $20. *eye roll* Our apartment manager didn’t even realize that our year ended yesterday, neither did boyfriend. I was the only one who was aware, I guess. I feel our rent should’ve stayed the same since we were the ones who brought it to their attention, lol.

Saturday night, boyfriend and I went out for a couple drinks together before I went into work. It was probably a mistake because the whole night was a blur and I’m sure I could’ve done better than I did… maybe not though because my memory is clear enough to remember that there weren’t many customers at all.

I worked until around 4 AM. In the car, on the way home, this car cut us off badly… we could’ve really got hurt but, luckily, we made it home safely. I am a little firecracker when I have too much to drink and I somehow thought it was boyfriend’s fault the car cut us off– I argued with him about that and absolutely nothing alllll morning until nearly 10 AM. YEP. 10. We eventually got to the best part of an argument though lol… you know, the making up part… *double eyebrow raise* πŸ˜‰ and after that, I fell asleep soundly… hehe.

Yesterday, of course, we slept in until almost past 5 PM! We smoked a blunt and I showered as fast as my hungover ass could…

We wanted to try this new AYCE hot pot restaurant in Chinatown but, when we got there… we saw there were no parking spots so I just knew that there was gonna be an outrageous wait to eat. Boyfriend parked the car in an illegal spot and ran in the restaurant to see how long the wait would be. He came back to report a 45 minute wait which really means over an hour.

We decided to go to Yama Sushi instead of waiting that long… it was already so late and we were starving. We will definitely have to go back and try that hot pot some day though.

We’ve been to Yama a few times before but, not in quite awhile.

We almost went to Sushi Neko again but, we needed something different for once. You all know we go there way too much by now lol. πŸ˜›

I enjoyed the change of scenery and different options. We ordered a ton of appetizers… this is not even half of them!:

wp-1538452412321..jpg

Then, we got 3 half rolls:

They were all a bit “extra,” in my opinion but, not too shabby. I loved how small the rolls were, they were so nice and easy to just pop into my mouth! At Sushi Neko, I must bite the pieces in half– they are SO large, I literally gag when I get too much of it!

I didn’t have any dessert because no dairy-free options. Boyfriend had a scoop of their Pistachio ice cream. I wanted to go to this new Boba Tea shop called Cafe No Fur, so we drove there and we even got inside. The door was unlocked and the the lights were on, menus open on the counter for us to browse but… yet, no one was in sight??

This shop is “special” because the waitresses all dress in lingerie while they make your drinks and take your orders. There was an eerie feeling in there and it def didn’t feel like we were alone. I shouted “hello!” but, no one responded. It seemed there was people in the back room… we weren’t brave enough to check though! Who knows what was going on??

Dirty, dirty… ?!? lol.

ANYWAYS, since they were unavailable… we just went to the Starbucks and ordered some drinks there.

I had been dying to try the Matcha frappucino since I saw Rossy (@AyRGalaxy) post about it so, that’s what I ordered!! I added 3 shots of espresso and subbed in almond milk. It was pretty good!! Boyfriend got a Vanilla Bean with 3 shots of espresso and cow’s milk!

When we got home, I put together my September 2018 ICYMI before plopping down on the couch for some American Horror Story with boyfriend. We’ve only got 2 more episodes to go and to be honest, I’m not that itchy to finish them but, I know we will eventually. I mean I want to, just… I’ve been way more engaged in the past seasons.

Around 1 AM, we both had the serious munchies. I asked boyfriend to go to Rivas and get us a breakfast burrito to share… lol.

wp-1538452412387..jpg

He also came back with some chips and bean dip… mmm… it all hit the right spot!! I was so satisfied and ready for bed but, that hot sauce fucked me up! My stomach was bothering me terribly, I couldn’t ignore it enough to fall asleep.

I ended up reading the rest of The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas and then, starting a Pinterest account (follow me if you want!). I got addicted to pinning photos and stayed up until near sunrise.

Today, I woke up at noon. Boyfriend didn’t really wake up until almost 2 PM.

I spent ALL day reading blogs on my Reader. At around 6 PM, we went to the grocery store. I saw the cutest little guys:

We came straight home afterwards and then, I continued reading blogs from where I left off. Boyfriend was cooking dinner but, I was starving so I had a few snacks while I read your blogs. πŸ™‚

When we ate, we watched a little bit of the second to last epi. of AHS but, once I finished eating I turned it off because I was wanting to write this journal entry more than sit there and watch TV.

I’m gonna write a mini book review for The Hate U Give now… not sure what I’ll do after that. Good night, folks! ❀

  1. You argued for 6 hours straight? Haha. There better be an award! πŸ˜‰
    I love the Haloween decorations! I wish I could place them in my house, but with the move in a month, it wouldn’t make sense!

    1. Agh, yes. We are both very annoying & need to have the last word even if we’re both wrong & everything we’re saying is pointless LOL. 6 hours of arguing was no fun but yes, my reward in the end was worth it… heheh. πŸ˜‰

      I know!! Aren’t those little pumpkins adorable?!? ❀ But, I get you, moving is hard! You need to have least items as possible lol.

  2. Oooh, i never saw matcha frappuccino in our starbucks. Tried matcha latte tho. Not sure why, maybe cuz i had it with soya milk, but it smelled kinda fishy… hahaha πŸ˜€ I do love icy drinks tho, and that green one looks pretty good!

    That argument sounds intense! I usually give up after like 30 minutes and stalk off… hahaha πŸ˜€

    1. I think the Matcha flavor at Starbucks is rather new? I never knew they had it either! It did taste like a Matcha latte I had in New York once! I’m not sure about the fishy smell though? Did it taste nice still or no? Lol.

      I wish he would give up & stalk off after 30 minutes because I never will… sadly, he is exactly the same as me. *eye roll* lol.

      1. Oh i see… well, maybe set a timer? πŸ˜€ Haha, i don’t know.

        The starbucks matcha latte with the soya was not nice. Even the flavour was fishy. I had it in other coffee shops tho and it was better. But i’m fairly positive it would taste way better with normal milk.

  4. Looks like another great start of your month already! I love the green tea frappucinos, the Starbucks in my area have had them for years! I have mine with nonfat milk and there’s just something about it! It’s about the only thing I ever order at Starbucks, they’re so addicting, haha. I love how the sushi place has half rolls, that’s the perfect amount of a roll intake for me, or else I can’t finish a whole one without getting somewhat tired of it! It’s too bad for the Boba shop, that sounds a bit eerie and almost awkward, but hopefully you’ll have a better experience with ti the next time if you try to go!

    1. Hey Stephanie! I’m so glad you stopped by! I’m thinking one of my comments I left you might’ve ended up in your spam?!

      I hope you’ve been having a great start to your month as well. πŸ˜€ I’m not sure how long we’ve had the Matcha flavor but, for some reason I’ve only recently learned about them haha! Maybe it’s been years over here too?!

      YES, half rolls are a lifesaver!! I like that you can try more different kinds with them. πŸ™‚ I do wonder what was going at that boba shop… I might try to go back a different time, maybe not though lol.

      1. I looked and found it! Why on earth would it be sent there!? Thanks for letting me know! I wouldn’t have noticed until a few days since I attempt to check my spam every now and then!

        Matcha is so good! I’ve tried looking for similar recipes to make my own. I even found the powder sold in stores so I may have to experiment a little bit!

        I work at a sushi restaurant and we unfortunately don’t sell half rolls but that would be so awesome if we did! It looks like you found other great Asian shops so maybe you haven’t missed out too much!

          Ooh, I've seen Matcha Powder at the store, too! & have been seeing recipes for like muffins & pancakes all over the place! Let me know if you experiment & find a good one. πŸ˜€

          That's so fun that you work at a sushi restaurant! It's so hard when places only sell half rolls because you don't get to try as many. 😦 I've been to some that are the same way! Yeah, there are a ton of boba shops all over the place but I wanted to see the lingerie gals, to be honest lol.

    Ahh okayyy that Boba tea place sounds sketch!! There was no one even at the front?! Weird. I love the matcha frappe- I’ve been craving it since seeing it on Rossy’s blog too- and now seeing it here I have got to get one soon. Those little pumpkins are so darn cute!

      RIGHT!! There was no one in the front… no one anywhere! I actually hope she was doing the dirty for some money & not being forced to do it, you know??…

      HAHA!! That’s so funny that we both started craving the matcha frapp!! It’s so your turn to get one!! ❀

      I kind of regret not buying one of those pumpkins but boyfriend probably would've smashed it like he did my mug somehow. πŸ˜‰ JK JK hahah.

  7. I love that somehow you thought it was his fault for the car cutting you guys off hahaha. That sounds like something I’d do when I’m a little tipsy lol. XD
    Isn’t that the worst with the rent going up?! I swear, nearly every time we’ve gone to renew our lease it goes up by like $40! It’s ridiculous. I think they only didn’t this last time because a new company took over and they wanted to persuade tenants to stay for at least the first year, probably for their reputation. πŸ˜‰
    It’s always so awkward when sushi pieces feel too big haha. I’ve gotten a few rolls like that, and all I can think is who can fit all of that comfortably in their mouth?! It’s kind of hard to cut in half with just chopsticks too lol. I definitely notice & appreciate when they are a bit smaller. I also have a small mouth, so it’s a struggle. XD
    How weird about that Boba Tea shop! Definitely sounds sketchy to me. Probably good that you got out of there before cops showed up or something lol.

    1. Oh gosh, that night was a blurrrr. I know it wasn’t his fault but we were both tipsy so that makes things extra scary & me extra angry, y’know? πŸ˜› Are you kind of a mean drunk, too??

      I hate that the rent goes up lol, I feel like it should only go up if you were bad/broke the rules somehow… it should stay the same or go down for those of us who pay on time every month & make no troubles!

      I agree!! I always try to bite the big sushi pieces in half but sometimes it’s hard to get through the seaweed & I look like a crazy person LOL. I have a small mouth, too! When I got braces I had to have 4 teeth removed to make all of my teeth fit together correctly!! πŸ˜› Boyfriend puts the whole dang big sushi piece in his mouth all the time, his mouth is huge I guess!! ahaha.

      YEAH! I don’t know what the heck was going on at the boba shop. I hope she was like making money & not being hurt…

      1. It makes sense to me! We get extra affected by things when alcohol is involved and when anything is a big scare, it’s easy to get angry because it was just so disturbing haha. I wouldn’t say mean necessarily but I can confuse things easily haha and I’m the one who can’t stop laughing. XD
        It’s so true and also it’s not like anything changed to make the apartment better, like you’re paying for an extra feature or something. Rent shouldn’t be allowed to just go up, it’s so dumb.
        Haha Joshua is the same–he can just put the whole big piece in his mouth with no issues, so he laughs at me when I struggle lol. Wow, 4 teeth removed!! I probably would have a similar experience if I had braces though. Sometimes I feel bad for the dentists because it can’t be easy to get to all my teeth in my small mouth lol. And YES the seaweed can be ridiculous to try to get through! It would be a breeze otherwise lol.

        1. Hahaha I am glad you understand! ❀
          I agree!! Rent should only go up for like new tenants or something, idk. Just not for us! LOL.
          Honestly, I haven't been to the dentist in many years but last time I went they told me my wisdom teeth are ALL growing in but I heard it's a myth that they need to be removed lol.

          Liked by 1 person

          1. A myth? I don’t think so haha…I had to get my wisdom teeth out since they were impacted and actually got infected. It made me feel so sick and miserable and within hours I could hardly even open my mouth. :/ Joshua also had to get his out also like most people even though they weren’t impacted. They were pushing on the roots of his other teeth, though, and if he waited too long then it could have been harder for his jaw to heal properly. But hey if yours aren’t causing problems and came in properly then maybe you don’t need them out, which would be nice! It’s usually when they come in impacted or sideways/bothering other teeth.

            Liked by 1 person

            1. Oh totally, yeah!! If it gets infected then you have to get them removed. Buuuuut, like I heard if they don’t bother you & are just like there but not growing in, you shouldn’t let them remove them because they’ll only come in when you have lost your adult teeth so you can chew foods longer when you’re older or something like that lol seriously, I read it somewhere! & that it would “break your jaw” is the biggest lie of them all I guess!! With my luck though my jaw will probably break lol.

      Britney, I remember you teaching me about being demisexual but, you should try Tinder hehe… maybe things could change?!

      Yeees, the ones with the jalapenos were our fave. The one with the red sauce was supposed to be spicy, too but was more sweet. Bleh. πŸ˜›

      It was our first time trying their breakfast burrito instead of a regular one! I loved it!!

  9. It’s the worst when people cut you off like they drive so dangerously and risk hurting others in the process.. I wish I could report those people seriously, it makes me so nervous when that happens because my kiddo is in the back.
    And that’s so weird that there was nobody in that shop, that would have been kinda shady to me lol. And yay you tried the Starbucks drink! You know, I always forget that you can substitute the milk I’ll have to ask next time lol.

      Lol yeah, I still wonder what was going on in that boba shop! I was so excited to try that Matcha frapp & it didn’t disappoint. ❀ πŸ˜€ Boyfriend says the almond milk makes drinks taste differently but I can't tell! Hope you'll like it still if you try it!!

        Well they have coconut milk too right? Whenever I go back I’ll have to try both and see which I like better. 😊
