1) pocky has been my longest running and most available addiction. I may or may not have eaten a whole box in a single night on more than one occasion.
I may run the risk of burning myself out. But no worries, there are plenty of varieties.
2)mister donut. i have fallen in love with an american food while in japan. i can’t resist, they are just so tasty and have free coffee refills. jacob and i are collaborating on a misdo club card, we are 1/2 way to the bling donut phone charm….
3) pop up coffee filters. before i bought a small coffee maker i found these little guys. they come with coffee already in them and you just put it on your mug and fill with coffee. genius!
4) being turned into an anime. one of my 5th graders drew this in class. i couldn’t be happier.the upper right corner says ellie sensei
5) japanese crosswalks. those little men are just so classy.
