Summer Festival and Anime Evolution are local anime conventions in my area. Summer Fest is run by Simon Fraser University’s anime club.
I saw Moya at Summer Fest because she was selling anime pins and other items at a table. I tabled for my university’s anime club, University of British Columbia Anime Club (UBC Anime Club). I cosplayed as Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service.
Met another Kiki
One Piece haul
I got to go in for free, which was great. I cosplayed as Rachel Gardner from Angels of Death. I met Falcon from Geek Astronaut for the first time, which was really cool.
Tabled for UBC Anime Club
Bought a gundam
Anime conventions are pretty nice because you have a good chance of meeting your online buddies in real life. I got to hang out with a lot of people I knew already from anime club and I met a few new people as well.
I’ve deactivated my Twitter account and go on certain social media platforms significantly less now. I have set a time limit on other platforms, such as Instagram. Why?
Firstly, it’s not realistic for me to chat with people online 24-7 every single day. I have sh!t to do! I am busy. Secondly, it does not fit my personality as I am someone who feels energized when I do my hobbies. Talking to people for prolonged periods of time and going outside very frequently feels draining. It’s extremely important to me that I do not lose sight of myself and that I remain true to myself.
Some social media platforms are pretty toxic. I don’t want to be like No Face from Spirited Away and be influenced/changed by the toxic space. I’ve blogged about the topic of toxicity in environment in this post.
Now that I’ve been using social media less, I can put out more blog posts! I can stay on top of my work tasks and do other things like house work LOL. I can spend more time with family and be more present in the moment.
These are the posts that people have been reading the most.

Representation of Chinese Characters in Anime
I was surprised that this one was popular. I do think that it’s an important topic that needs to be talked about. I roll my eyes when Chinese characters are drawn in traditional clothing in a modern day setting. You can read it here.
