Looking back at 2013




Hi there, how are you doing ?
well... i honestly can't believe there's only hours to 2014! Can you??
Time just flies! Looking back at my year, i can say it has been such a crazy year for me.
How many things happened !? finished my study abroad, traveled around US, did an internship in NYC, came back to Japan, visited my friends in Seoul, started new part-time job, met new people and started job hunting....
Wow... there are literally a lot of great things going on this year!!

and the crazy thing is the number of photos that i took this year....
15,411.... seriously crazy right? I can't even imagine that. haha 
So today i'd like to looking back through my photos ! i mean not all of them ! that's gonna be hell.
so just highlight of my year !


こんにちは、フライングしておせちの錦卵を食べてしまいましたマツウラです。
さて、2013年も残すところあと6時間!
信じられませんよね!ほんと、あっというま。
今年はもう色んなことがあった1年で...って毎年言ってますねこのフレーズ。
でもふりかえってみても、ほんといろんなことがあったんですよ!
留学終えて、アメリカぐるっと旅行して、あこがれのNYでインターンして、帰国して、
韓国も行っちゃって、新しくバイトもはじめて、たくさんの面白い人に会って。。

ほんとクレイジーなんですが、一番クレイジーなのが今年撮った写真の数。
その数なんと、15411枚!!!なんてこった!
で、ここ一週間くらいアルバムつくりながら、
フォルダをどーーーんと振り返ってみたりしてました。

というわけで、今日は2013年の締めくくりとして、
写真で1年間を振り返ります。はい!自己満です!失礼。

then... Graduation day.
That was the day that i have to say goodbye to all my friends.
well, i can say my study abroad was the best experience i ever had and it changed me in so many ways for the better. I learned a lot of things that i never could have if i was just a tourist in the States.
I met so many wonderful people from all over the world.
but it's never easy saying goodbye... i literally cried a lot. and i ruined all my makeup... haha
but I'm so glad to meet people makes me like that.

I'll never forget all of my memories i've had.
Thank you guys!! Love you.
