Thanks to Irina’s anime recommendation, I just binged both seasons of Ajin. It’s my kind of show. I didn’t really like the main character, the main villain, or the government workers. That being said, I’m not sure whose side I’m on. Probably the government’s because I am also human. It’s still one of my favourite anime because of how intense it was.
I don’t recommend it to everyone, though. If you don’t like violent shows, this is not for you.
In other news, K made a Buzzfeed Personality Quiz on anime bloggers and I got myself. I’m sure most of you have seen the quiz already.
Thank you Aria for the Valentine’s card! For those of you who don’t know, Izaya is my favourite anime character. Aria was spot on with this.
I’m writing this post for myself, for my future sad days. When I feel sad, I can read this post and remind myself that I am lucky to have good people in my life. I tend to forget a lot of the things that people do for me.
I wonder if I deserve all of this. I’m struggling with this because I am no one special. I’m not used to this much kindness in my life. I’ve written before that I had a lonely childhood.
Thank you everyone. I hope that I am treating you with as much kindness. I don’t think I am, but I’ll improve on that. Maybe I am too harsh on myself, but these are my true feelings.

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.
I write up food blog posts three times a year: after the first term of school, after the second term of school, and after the summer.
Term two of school recently ended so here is part six! You can view part five here. That post has all the links to the earlier Vancity Eats posts. Once again, these are some of the foods I’ve eaten with my crew.
Okay, enough chit-chat LOL. Time to make some of you guys hungry. >:)
