Study Date with Moya

Moya (Moyatori) from The Moyatorium goes to the same university as me. Today, we met for the first time at a café!


Moya was trying to figure out my real name so that’s why we are holding Death Note volumes. I am L and Light is Moya.





This is my first time meeting another blogger in real life. It’s fun!

Unique Blogger Award

Thanks Moyatori for nominating me. Moyatori posts anime lists, reviews, and song translations. You can check out their blog here.

I feel a little ashamed by the fact that I haven’t done these award posts. I get at least 5 nominations every two months. >< If I do all the awards, then over half of my posts will be on them. Moyatori’s questions seem pretty quick to answer. Plus, we go to the same school. Although, I haven’t met Moyatori in real life.


  1. Display the award!
  2. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog. (Try and include a little bit of promotion!)
  3. Answer the questions they’ve written for you!
  4. Nominate 8-13 bloggers and give them three questions in the spirit of sharing love and solidarity within our blogging family!


  1. Why did you choose the avatar you have?
  2. Do you share your blogging experience with people you know in real life? To what extent?
  3. Do you think your blogger persona differs from your real life personality?


  1. I haven’t changed my avatar since January 2015, lol. I chose the bubble tea picture because I like bubble tea. Now everyone identifies me through the avatar so I don’t plan on changing it any time soon.
  2. Just about everyone who has me on social media knows about my blog. That’s because I link my blog to my Facebook and Instagram accounts. I do tell some people about my blog, but most people find it through social media. They ask me about it later or tell me they read my blog. I don’t have my family on social media so I don’t think my parents know about my blog. My brother does but he doesn’t check it. I prefer things to be this way because I want to be able to blog without being confronted about it. For example, if I write that I am feeling negative, I don’t really like it when people ask me to explain my situation.
  3. Mostly the same. I try to be my most authentic self on my blog but it’s difficult to express myself 100% the same because I don’t blog about every aspect of my life. I generally blog when I’m in a good mood so maybe the more negative side of me is not being shown. I do wear glasses all the time, even though I generally don’t wear them in my pictures.


  1. What is your favourite song?
  2. How many months or years have you been a fan of anime? Also, how old is your blog?
  3. Do you think you will quit blogging one day? Why or why not?


I will open it to anyone because I don’t like choosing bloggers. I want to nominate more than 50 bloggers every time, lol. Thanks for reading.


New Instagram

I wrote my last final today so now I am on break. =) I still have to do some work but at least classes are over for now. That being said, expect blog posts on digital drawings and anime cosplays. ^^ I am almost always very productive whenever I have a break.

I made an Instagram account for my cosplays! It’s @misswaves | instagram.com/misswaves

This account will have some photos I’ve never posted anywhere else, and I will occasionally post anime related merchandise. I follow back, so let me know if you follow me! Thanks. ^^



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.



Exo Bear Mask


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)


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. 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!
