I made strawberry milk with fresh strawberries. It tastes really good! I’m using a bubble tea straw to drink it, hahaha.
I went back to Shishinori. The last time I went here was in December 2015. The miso soup is new and the pudding is different. I love pudding omg…
Nothing else to update… I like to stay at home, read BL manga, listen to music and watch One Piece. I’ll probably get more piercings one day. I’m still the same person.

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. >:)

I sketched Hatsune Miku last night. This is the *most* colouring I feel like doing at this time as I am still focusing on sketching. It’s missing details, but this is how I want it to look. ^^
I also went to a melonpan bakery yesterday! Apparently there is only one place in the province that sells melonpans and Japanese breads so… we had to go.
Here is another blog post on the food I’ve eaten with my main friend group in BC, Canada. Click on the links below to see previous posts.
