Karmatsu from Osomatsu-san
I’ve cosplayed as Karamatsu before (including a genderbend version) but I had red roses at home so I had to cosplay as him again. I can see improvements in my cosplays when I look at my older male Karamatsu cosplay photos.
I tried the Strawberries & Crème frappuccino for the first time and I loved it because it wasn’t very sweet. I was told that it’s normally sweeter which is too bad because I don’t like sweet foods or drinks very much.
I’ve been going out a lot lately! I’ve been spending a lot of time with friends and I’ve been eating out a lot. I’ve also watched anime and Asian dramas – over 100 episodes since my summer break started a little over a month ago (I counted!).
I’ll be working part-time soon so I won’t have as much time to watch TV which is okay!
P.S. Their Aspirations is a song from the Durarara!! soundtrack. You should listen to it!!!
As some of you know, I studied at the University of British Columbia in British Columbia, Canada. I am from BC and I finished my Bachelor’s degree in four years. I majored in Psychology and I will be continuing my studies at UBC because I was accepted into the Social Work program.
I do feel proud of myself because I graduated at the age of 21 by taking a full course load. I started university right after high school and you need a high average to get in. The Social Work program was competitive as well and the interview was three hours! Anyways, that’s enough bragging. I have bragging rights on my own blog, right? Right??
I wore my Kiki’s Delivery Service dress from my cosplay.
I like how the horns come out of the graduation cap. Thanks friends for the anime figures!
Thanks R for the flowers, card and presents! The graduation mug is very practical.
I won a prize in WeekendOtaku‘s series of Your Lie in April posts. I got to choose my own prize and chose a wig for Gumi. The third photo is the true colour. Thanks WeekendOtaku!
You can read his blog posts on YLIA here. I definitely encourage you to read them because it’s clear that he gave each topic a lot of thought. A lot of anime bloggers can agree with me on this.
The wig is really good quality. I love it a lot.
I cosplayed as the vocaloid, Gumi. This look is from her song, Matryoshka. It is a collab song with Hatsune Miku. I’ll cosplay as Gumi again when someone can take photos for me. I also have her socks, shoes and skirt.
I’ll also be cosplaying as Gumi in a school uniform from another music video in the future!
I realized I haven’t done fashion posts in a long time! I’m planning on doing more. ^^
The skirt is from Liz Lisa, my favourite Japanese clothing brand. I have more Liz Lisa clothes so I’ll probably post more.
The skirt has shorts underneath. It’s creative how the shorts make up a layer.
OLD POST: Ootd – Liza Lisa
Osamu Dazai from Bungou Stray Dogs. Fun fact: The anime character is named after the one of Japan’s most famous authors.
I’m starting to read Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare and the famous line, “Et tu, Brute?” has me shaken.
The theme of betrayal happens all the time in literature and in anime too. Take the song Vogel im Käfig from Attack on Titan, for example. When I listen to the song, I feel anger, betrayal, sadness, disbelief and acceptance. The song plays during my favourite scene in the anime, the betrayal.
Quotes pop up on the loading screen of a game I’m playing. This quote in particular was very interesting. It was cool seeing a quote from a novel I own.
“If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.” – George Orwell, 1984
Don’t worry, my life is mundane. Every time I write about a serious topic like this, there are always a couple of people who ask me if I’m okay, or if there’s anything wrong. I do appreciate the concern, but you have to understand that I think a lot. I’m not blindly consuming content and not thinking about it afterwards! No, I think about the things I read and watch.

P.S. I’m learning how to skateboard. Balancing is not an issue but I need to practice turning.
