Shisa

Whew... what a week. I finished up my required pro-bono hours to graduate (60 hours) and my second week back at school. I already have tons of reading and homework to do but I'm hoping this semester goes by quickly. I can't wait to get to Texas in December! D was in Okinawa all week, but he got back yesterday morning with some presents. An Aquarius for me (a Japanese electrolyte drink that I LOVE) and a little stuffed shisa. A shisa is a creature from Okinawan mythology that is a cross between a dog and a lion. It is supposed to ward off evil spirits. This one happens to be super cute too. I visited D in Okinawa when he was there last summer. I loved it and hope to visit again one day. Now, back to enjoying my last day of my first trimester! :)
