I have joined a really fun circle called Amity! It’s a pom-pom dance cheer club and it’s sooooo fun so here are pictures 🙂
Friday the 4th of July; instead of practice we all had dinner together 🙂 It was fantastic ❤
Ready for dinner!
Just met outside Kichijouji station
See those little lines? Those are all soft drinks! There’s 4 more pages inside of alcoholic ones!! We had a lot of choice 🙂
First course! It was an all-you-can-drink for 2 hours with food deal in E-Z Dining 🙂 These gals sat across from us and we had such a laugh!
Ready for that quiche
Nadja down the other end of the table 🙂
The second course!
Salad time 🙂 Eriko was excited!
My favourite course; macaroni with green veggies
Hikari serving up!
More pasta; tuna and tomato 🙂
Eating Italian with chopsticks!
No one was sure about this one; green tea and orange juice!
Actually pretty tasty!
Dessert; vodka grape jelly!
Traffic lights again!
Gift time came around again; bless these girls! We got calendars from Marina 🙂
They came in a TUFS folder ❤
Close up of the calendar
Mao gave us letters and hand-made Amity bunnies! So, so sweet :’)
Then they brought out cake!!
It says Congratulations on graduating Amity 🙂
Cutting was hard apparently!
My delicious slice 😀
Mao and Nadja with caaaake
Photo outside after we’d finished!
Polaroid time 🙂
And purikura of course!
We fit all of us in one machine!!
We also did a smaller group one 🙂
Our Graduation Stage!! Such a whirlwind of emotions; nervous, excited, happy, sad and touched ❤
The poster we handed out at lunchtimes advertising our performance!
Goodie bags for the audience 🙂
The giant sign we made!
Hard at work 😛
We all wrote in a book to Eriko, and the Japanese girls are all artists!! The messages were beautiful 🙂
My message to Eriko
Marlene’s message; she is also an artist!
Nadja’s message; so neat!
Between the ‘cute medley’ and Summertime we were the MCs! In Japanese and all 😀
At the end the other members surprised us all with gifts! I was so happy and sad all at the same time :]
my flower crown 🙂
Happiest and saddest hug!
Love this photo
Final bow time!
The gifts! Messages from everyone, a bath tablet and a smelly apple pouch 🙂
Eriko gave us all bracelets too; I couldn’t have been spoilt more today ❤
It came to balloon popping!
Two old leaders, one just graduated and one future leader!
We got pretty hungry by the end!
After performance curry with Mitch and Marlene 🙂
Lettuce face ❤
Going out in uniform was fun!
We bumped into some of the others on the way home!!
The day before the Graduation Stage
Quick trip to Harajuku to get clear bra straps for the backless uniform 🙂
So on my Birthday on April 22nd; over 2 months ago, I lost my bulbasaur keyring from my backpack somewhere in Harajuku. When we were in the bra shop Mitch pointed this out because he thought it looked out of place and I immediately knew it was mine from ages ago!! So weird! The best thing is the shopkeeper who let me have it back was inadvertently dressed like Misty from the anime!!
Monday night’s practice; the last official practice with all of us who are to graduate :’)
Oooooh the programs arrived!
First rehearsal day for the Graduation Stage! Not only did I get my uniform but we had a great day performing and then dinner afterwards 🙂
I finally got my Uniform!!!!!!!! Most exciting part of the whole day!
The audience part of the hall we were to perform in
Eriko looking adorable as usual
After practice we went for dinner with some of the girls to a place called Royal Host in Musashi-sakai
My dessert……. drooooool Yes that is a strawberry creme brulee/sunday
Most of us got the creme brulee sunday!
After dinner purikura!
Marlene and I went for our own one too 🙂
Full body shot to show off the uniform!
The other gals did their own too 🙂
Hikari (the next leader)’s Birthday!
Our first performance!! 17th June 2014; it was incredible!
Today is the first performance day!!
A quick practice in our little room before the real thing
This one makes me laugh
I discovered my belly comes out every time ‘cos I’m too tall!! Marlene Giggling in the background 😛
Ready to go on, but look at our expressions! All the same! heheh
Just ready to start
Beginning of ‘Summer time guys’
Post dance polaroids!
Post dance polaroids!
Loads of group shots 🙂
This is my favourite shot of the day because the 4 girls left of me look like they’re heads are dislocated!!
Us foreign ones 😛
Love this one 🙂
This is Hikari; she taught me the first dance we learnt ^__^
Amity’s leader and I!
Mitch did all the photos and videos 🙂
Our friends all came to cheer for us!
Pom-twerking it up
Marlene’s Japanese girlfriends that I sometimes meet up with at their parties came to see us!
My knees afterwards!
Bekah and Christina came and we got celebratory crepes 🙂
We made the most of these uniforms 😀
All the purikura
We even went to karaoke in them!
Uniform selfie!! We were so happy to finally be in a uniform, even if it was just a rental one!
Not too flattering but this is the first photo of us in uniform!
Some of the other girls in their uniform
Made a little thing on the whiteboard in the room we practice in outside of normal practice
One lunchtime practice one of the girls went to get a drink and bought us one too! :] They’re so lovely
Tiny flyer for our first ever performance!!! SO EXCITING!! 😀
A bit of fun 🙂
These gals always wear the same top!
Us and our finished pom poms!!!!
THE POM POMS ARRIVED!!! This is me just starting to make them!
I bought a skirt and top for Amity!!! First skirt I have worn in years
Last year’s Amity and this years! So much cheer 😀
Marlene, Nadja and I all have our shoes now!
I can’t wait till my real one arrives
First time I tried on the uniform top!!!
Nadja bought Marlene and I little keyrings from her holiday :]
