21

I turned 21 years old on October 1! On the day before my birthday, I got my ears pierced with a friend. I got upper lobe done and it was painless. We visited a Chinese garden then went to my place for a sleepover.

All of my close friends attended my birthday dinner. We went to a Japanese restaurant.

Two friends surprised me with a cake. The staff sang ‘Happy Birthday’ really loud and I was shocked! I thought it was for a different table.

You can see my balloon and a scarf my friends gave me. I got a lot of cool gifts! I honestly think that I have the best friends in the whole world because they accept me for who I am. I am a little different with the whole anime hobby thing. I act like a kid, and I ask a lot of dumb questions. They still love me for being me.

Week Recap

Sindy at Infiinty inspired me to do this post (with gifs) after I read her’s. Coincidentally, I’m drinking red tea as I type this blog post. This was not intentional.

I sneeze so much now and I frequently have a runny nose. I am not sick. Something triggers it, like dust in an old shop or a woman’s strong perfume. After the triggering event, I don’t stop sneezing for weeks. I should probably see a doctor.

Well, I’ve reached 900 followers so thank you for all the love, kindness and support. It’s a rewarding experience when younger girls open up to me about their experiences with cyber bullying, post-secondary goals, and one girl even sent me her graduation photo! I felt so touched…

I’ve developed many meaningful friendships thanks to this blog. I talk to some friends almost every day on my social media. The AniTwitter/AniBlogging community makes life so fun. The power of the Internet is amazing because it brings people together.

Chanyeol loves One Piece, just like me

It’s no secret that I love EXO very much. EXO is a Korean pop boy group that consists of Korean and Chinese members. They sing in both Korean and Mandarin Chinese.

Plz ignore the fact that my bag is falling lolol

Xiumin here is one of my favourite members (along with Chanyeol and previously, Luhan). I feel a little embarrassed… *laughs*

I did see them in real life too, at their concert.

Help: Which book should I read first?

  • Walden Two – B.F. Skinner ($2 at book sale on university campus)
  • Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde – Robert Louis Stevenson ($3 at thrift store)
  • Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte ($2 at thrift store)

I try to avoid thrift stores because they make me sneeze a lot. I think I’m allergic to dust but if it means getting $2 books, then I’m willing to go.

I read manga everyday. Manga are Japanese comics and they are the book version of anime. You read in the opposite direction. Even though I like manga more, I still like novels.

I like books on psychology, mystery and books with villains. I read books that were written a long time ago. Walden Two was published in 1948. Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was first published in 1886. Jane Eyre was first published in 1847. The only more modern books I like are by Haruki Murakami. He is a Japanese author and I read his books that have been translated in English.

Let me know in the comments which book I should read first!

First day of 2017

So today did not go as planned. I went to the theatres to watch Studio Ghibli’s Kiki’s Delivery Service, but there were technical issues and we were not able to watch the movie. The people at the theatre were really nice so I’m not mad.
