Let's go to JAPAN, baby !

Dear Anne Beatrice:

We are happy to inform you that you have been officially admitted to the Asian Studies Program at Kansai Gaidai University for the fall semester of 2013. All the faculty and staff members of the Asian Studies Program are looking forward to welcoming you to our campus.

I can not express how excited I am to go study abroad in Japan, it's been one of my biggest dream ! In 2 weeks I will be back home in Europe and I will get my flight ticket for Asia. Until then I pretty much live at the library to be able to pass my finals... :(

After spring break,
I decided to try to eat everyday 5 portions of fruit and vegetable. First of all, it's not cheap at all ! Here in America, fruits and vegetables can be expensive, so when I go grocery shopping I focus on fruits and vegetables that aren't too expensive like: cucumber, grapes, apple, carrots. Of course I wish my 5 portions would be all like strawberries, mango, pineapple... but those can be a bit pricy sometimes like $6 for strawberries :(

Also if you are going to start doing this you need to try to plan ahead and determine how much of what is actually a portion.

An on-going research is trying to show that skin tones change after 6 weeks of eating 5 portions a day.

To help you determine what is a portion this pdf will be very helpfull:
