Saturday 31st December 2016. 23:00 Osaka Japan.

I met UZ at Yodoyabashi around 21:30 and we got the tube to Shinsaibashi. At this point we still didn’t know what we were going to do, we just wanted to drink and find some good vibes. Shinsaibashi is one of the main areas to go out in Osaka, lots of cool bars and people. UZ clocked one of his friends and we ended up chilling at a skate spot in Shinsaibashi. We got beers from the convenient store and chilled here until after midnight.

Everyone here was SO nice. Couldn’t really ask for more.. good people, good music, alcohol, vibes. Exactly what a new year should be!

My name is Alicia, and I’ve never had a friend through snail mail, so I thought I should give it a try. I really like finding new music and I am open to anything that people suggest. A few of my many favorite artists/bands are: Twenty One Pilots, John Mayer, The Smiths, Queen, and Young the Giant. My favorite author is John Green, and my favorite book is “All the Bright Places”. I would consider myself to be a weeaboo, and I enjoy the films “Spirited Away” and “My Neighbor Totoro”. I love to Bullet Journal, skateboard, take pictures, and create theories about anything and everything. I would love to write letters, but messaging is fine as well.

Preferences: Please no racism, xenophobia, or any hate of that sort. I would only write to people between the age of 13-16 who share a few similar interests as me. I’m open to talking to people from anywhere, as long as they speak English. Music is one of my favorite things, so I’d hope to find someone with a good music taste.
