Harajuku Girl on the Street

Mondays are always busier than the rest of the week.  It’s the day to play catch up and I was swamped until my evening workout, so I told myself that tonight I would just get some extra walking in to get myself out on this beautiful day.  I was doing that and then in the evening got to walk around for a few hours after my workout.  I ended up doing a total of about 8 miles.

I had time to walk back from class with my good friend, Donnell, and then walked on by myself when she ran to an appointment. The song featured in the video above was created and performed by MARINA. It’s called “The Glory of Your Life.” That’s her playing the violin here and it’s perfect for a good walk around the city at 128 beats per minute.

I missed all the rain, so was able to walk with my umbrella tucked away and took some random shots with my point and shoot Canon G10 as I walked. New York always has some bizarre random things and you’re sure to get something interesting snapped up daily!

Above is a photo of a girl dressed in a Harajuku-style dress. She shouted out, “I don’t always dress like this, I just came from a photo shoot.”

Breakfast: Oatmeal with Raisins and Cinnamon. Aesthetics and presentation are important to me when I’m dining, so it makes a big difference when I put my oatmeal in a pretty dish.

Lunch:  Chicken, Rice and Asparagus, covered with some chili sauce. Anything tastes better when it’s spicy!

Dinner:  Beef with Tomatoes and Sugar Snap Peas.
