This summer has been long and hot, and I’ve been super psyched about it while stuck in front of the desk most of the time. Seeing August pass in front of me with no beach day was a torture. It’s because, in Sapporo, we only have like a week when we can soak in the sea without pretending it’s comfortable.

We played some balls with another group that was hanging out right next and it was great.
