I really like these flowers because they look like flowers you would see in an enchanted forest! There were a whole field of them.

Spring Cleaning & IG Shop

I didn’t show this side of my desk before because it was cluttered with papers (I was studying for finals at the time). Here ya go.

I did some spring cleaning and organized this. I own a lot of jewelry but for some reason, I always wear the same few necklaces and earrings. Lol. These are the pieces I wear every single day.

I mainly just wear necklaces and studs. For necklaces I like crystal necklaces (a few of these were custom-made) and chokers.

Speaking of spring cleaning – I donate/throw out a bag of clothes two times a year, and minimize my possessions once a year. This time around, I created an Instagram shop @misswaves_shop, in which I sell anime and manga items, cosplays, and books for very cheap. Most things are half the price I paid for.

Why did I create an online shop?

1) I need more space in my room.

2) It would be too sad to throw these out. I’m already throwing out a ton of stuff and these are in good condition. I don’t need these things.

3) Why not donate? I would love to make some extra money right now, even if it’s a little.

Rules:

1) It’s only open to ppl in British Columbia, Canada. Sorry about that. 😦

2) Meet ups are at the University of British Columbia or skytrain stations.

3) Message me over Instagram, comment on the photo, or contact me through this blog if you’re interested in buying something! ^^

Another Update

I borrowed a few DS games from a friend. I played the first Ace Attorney game and finished the first case in 5-10 minutes! I’m not sure if it was just super easy or if I am just good. It’s probably just easy.

I am proud of myself. I took a full course load (five courses) and on top of that, did lab work as a Psych research assistant, held the title of Vice President Internal of an international psychology honours society, and mentored a child on a weekly basis. I woke up at 6 AM every Monday to Friday and one of my classes ended at 8 PM. That’s not what I’m really proud of, though. Lol. I have my final grades for all my courses this term and I didn’t get anything lower than an A-. I’m proud that I did well on top of all of those extracurricular activities. Some days I got four hours of sleep because I had to study. u_u

Hair cut and curled

Remember my Bubble Tea review post? I would like to make a couple of changes! Firstly, Little Tea House in Metrotown – I did give it a poor review and I don’t regret it. I never sugar coat my reviews. HOWEVER — one of my close friends went there recently and said that the bubble tea taste improved a lot. They renovated the place and I think it’s worth giving a second chance! I know I’ll be going there again to see for myself.

Secondly… Big Orange in Metrotown – I didn’t talk about this bubble tea place much in that blog post so I’ll talk about it here. It used to be my favourite bubble tea place in Metrotown. Unfortunately, I had a poor experience there. The manager was highly unprofessional and I don’t see myself going there in the near future. Of course, this is only specific to the Metrotown location so I’ll still be going to their other franchise locations. You know me guys… I am generally pretty nice but I will say something if I feel like it. I do what I want on my blog!

Evolve

I moved during the summer of last year so I did a workspace comparison. The left was my workspace in my old place in June 2017. The right is my current workspace. I’m using a different table and my current table curves to the side. The other half of the table is filled with papers right now because I’m studying for finals. That’s why I’m not showing it hahaha!

After looking at the photos, I realized something. My favourite colour is not pink anymore. One thing about me is that I really like to drink from straws. It’s actually not good because straws are made of plastic (bad for the environment) but maybe one day I will invest in reusable straws.

I was thinking about something earlier. I am turning 22 this year but I do look younger than my age. I sometimes act like a little kid too. This doesn’t mean I’m immature. It’s just my personality! I don’t see anything wrong with this so I don’t feel the need to not be myself. When I’m 28, I’m still going to be myself!

This isn’t to be confused with being the same person forever. I don’t agree with that because we are constantly evolving.

I am quite confident.

I will be the judge of my content quality.

If you don’t like my blog or me, why are you still reading?

Get out.

Ghoul

I went to a cafe called Fondway Cafe in Burnaby, BC and the food was good! I got these waffles. It was a little pricey but the cafe was pretty.

As I took this photo, I felt like Mitsuha in Taki’s body from Kimi no Na Wa/Your Name, hahaha.

The cool thing about being a cosplayer and/or anime fan is that you probably have anime stuff in your room! This is Kaneki’s mask from Tokyo Ghoul. I also have One Piece stuff, such as posters, plush of Chopper Man, Luffy’s straw hat, and a few other One Piece things. Of course I have a lot more anime things (especially since I cosplay) but maybe I will talk about them in a different blog post…

Singer 2018 is finished! Click here to know what I’m talking about. Unfortunately Hua Chenyu did not win first place but I am happy with the results. Jessie J won and I think she deserves it! Hua Hua won second place and that’s a huge achievement.

I also finally bought the novel, Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo. I wrote in an older post that I wanted to read it but the number of pages scared me. My plans for the summer break are to look for a part-time job, cosplay, and stay at home. I want to read my novel, watch One Piece, play video games, eat ice cream at home, and sleep. I don’t have any other requirements. My wish is to live life simply and worry-free. ^^

Last day of class

I bought these games yesterday. I hope I like them.

I treated myself to a matcha ice cream cone. It’s the last day of class for my Bachelor’s degree (Arts) in Psychology at University of British Columbia. After finals, I’m graduating! 🎓 If you look at my Archives, I post the most when I have a break from school. I woke up at 6 AM every Monday to Friday this term. I have a full course load as well, which is why I am graduating after four years of doing my undergrad at the age of 21 (I went to university right after I completed high school).

Readers of my blog (mainly girls in high school) sometimes email me or message me about university inquiries. That’s why I feel compelled to write about my experience, especially since I don’t show the student side of me that much on my blog.

I enjoyed university a lot more than high school and elementary school. I didn’t have great experiences in my high school and elementary schools though… I made great friends and I feel comfortable being myself around them. They are supportive of my anime and cosplaying hobbies and they are very nice to me. As a young adult, I have a lot of freedom and therefore I am able to engage in my hobbies. This blog is a space where I basically show a glimpse of my personal life in terms of anime fandom and other hobbies. Hobbies are very important to me because they allow me to take a break from school and other commitments and responsibilities. Anime and my other interests make up part of my identity.

I was accepted into a UBC program so I’m continuing school in the Fall. ^_^

Happy Spring

I took this picture of these plum blossoms on March 20, the first day of spring.

These are the games I bought this week. Ace Attorney is my favourite game right now, but I feel like I will only play it once. Once I finish the game, I’ll remember the correct responses so it won’t be as fun anymore… unless I play again when I’m like 40. All the Detective Conan episodes I’ve watched are paying off because now I’m applying that learned knowledge to the game hahaha.
