An update blog of sorts.

I've been back from Japan for two days or so now, and it's been quite a culture shock. I left my newly bought camera on the flight from Tokyo to London, and they want me to pick it up from London 'cause they're silly like that, so I'm gonna get my uncle to pick it up, which means I won't be able to put up any photos until I get my camera back, so sorry for that. Moving on.

Japan was truly amazing. The cities are so clean and interesting and diverse and the countryside is breathtakingly beautiful and quite otherworldly. I had such a great time and bought so much stuff (mostly phone charms. so cuuute!). It was nice getting to practise my broken Japanese though and brilliant getting to experience their exquisite culture. We were in Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima and a little town called Kumano, which is outside Hiroshima and is where 80% of Japanese Calligraphy brushes are made (by hand). I'll write another blog about some of my experiences there, but this is just a short update.

I, like so many others, am a huuuge Harry Potter fan (although, I hate the kid himself. Malfoy ftw!), so I really wanted to see the film at midnight and dress up as a wizard and just be a general fangirl; but I was in Tokyo when it was released so Im only getting to see it today. I'm so excited I started to cry when I was booking the tickets ('cause I'm cool, right?), and I know I'll enjoy it no matter whether it's good or bad.

Here're some Wrock (Wizard Rock- i.e. Harry Potter Fan Music) related links that I think you should check out.

Some amazing Wrock Bands:

Some awesome Youtubers Wrock songs:

Sorry this blog sucked, but I felt like giving an update and whatnot.
Oh! And I'm gonna cut my hair and maybe dye it blue.
Best wishes.
Love, Shling.x
