All of these pictures were posted on my Instagram, but I thought I would post them in a blog format.
Can’t wait to read this book~
Katsu with soba~
My first Kaiji thing. It’s pretty much impossible to find anything from this anime in Canada… Thank you to my friend for the belated birthday gift! Those who watched Kaiji Season 2 will know about the dice… The ざわざわ wrapping paper OMG
Bought this Totoro mug cover
Picked this up yesterday at the store
Shungiku Nakamura is one of my favourite mangaka ^^

Should I keep doing this kind of monthly update? Let me know. x)
So my 23rd birthday just passed and now I’m writing this at 1 AM. It was a good birthday.
I think I’ve grown a lot in these past few years. I’m pretty chill now… A lot of things don’t bother me anymore. Or maybe I’ve just become desensitized to everything. Hahaha.
Seriously though, I can’t remember the last time I felt petty in a while. If I have a problem with someone, I feel comfortable confronting them about the issue now, while keeping the conversation respectful.
I’ve started doing things less for other peoples’ approval. I would say that I’ve become a more authentic person. Authenticity is one of my values and those who respect me and like me for who I am are people I cherish.
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 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.
Some of you have asked for a bday post, so here it is.
Guu Garden in Downtown Vancouver
I ordered the Royal bento box.
I celebrated with friends, and I’m going to see some friends tomorrow too. If anyone is wondering, I got a gift card, a wallet, bath bombs, a Tony Tony Chopper plush, a sweater, another gift card, and a painting of Roronoa Zoro my friend painted for me.
