I have talked about my friend, Dacia, before in this blog. We met earlier this year and have gotten really close over this summer. She is a lot of fun and we have a lot of the same interests.

I will NEVER EVER fly with them again.

Today was our only chance to visit it before it closed. This haunted house was located by the Hiroshima Carps stadium.
Speaking of adventures, on Friday, Danielle and I decided to head to Hiroshima for a quick day trip. She needed to buy a birthday present for friend of one of her kids and wanted to check out the Pokemon Center. I went just for the fun of it. It ended up being a silly time.
I will admit it. I'm addicted to Starbucks. I spend $20 to $50 a week on it. Well, honestly, I don't spend anything on it. I use my Swagbucks points to get Starbucks gift cards to feed my addiction.
