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.

Series that Changed My Life

These are the series I’ve learned from. It’s important to note that these include tiny changes too! Needless to say, these are some of my favourite anime, manga, and Japanese dramas.

1. One Piece (anime)

I watch the anime and I also read the manga. I’m a lot more ahead in the manga lol but I will go back and watch all the episodes (800+). I’ve said this quite a few times in my blog already – One Piece is my favourite anime series of all time.

It showed me what friendship should look like because the Straw Hat Pirates have such a great dynamic. I’ve observed many of the same qualities in my own crew. ^^

One Piece is ridiculously funny and it brought back my laughter.

2. Liar Game (Japanese drama)

There are two seasons and a few movies. I’ve watched them all lol. There’s also a Korean drama and I’ve seen that too. I’ve also completed the manga. The ending of the manga was pretty disappointing but it’s still worth reading.

Liar Game was one of the things that made me interested in pursuing a degree in Psychology. My university was recently listed at #10 in Psychology, and this is a world ranking. That’s really cool. =D

I used to be super naive. Liar Game (and university) taught me that people tell lies. I think it’s better to know that people are not perfect.

3. Bloody Monday (Japanese drama)

There are two seasons of the Japanese drama, but I like season 1 more because J is the main antagonist. I’ve also read the first and third season of the manga. I think you should read season 1 of the manga first, but I definitely prefer season 3 because of J.

The drama and manga showed me that our problems are so trivial when we look at the world. That is comforting.

4. Durarara!! (anime)

I’m not the biggest fan of the manga, mostly because of the art style. I really like the soundtrack in the anime. Season 2 of the anime was not as good because they introduced too many characters in too little episodes. It seemed forced and rushed. The character design for Izaya looked better in Season 1.

Izaya is one of my favourite anime characters. I have to admit, he is a terrible person. However, his quotes on living in the present and moving on from the past “changed” me because the way I approached life changed. I became more present-oriented and I was able to move on from whatever it was that bothered me in the past. I love living in the present.

“You think you’re special? You’re not. Everyone lies, everyone hides things… Nobody makes it through this life being completely honest.”

“The only way to truly escape the mundane is for you to constantly be evolving. Whether you choose to aim high, or aim low. Enjoy each day for what it is.”

“Your guilt will be your past and that will be your God.”

Izaya Orihara

I think I was too harsh on others in the past. The show taught me that perhaps we shouldn’t be too critical of others. After all, there are probably some things that others don’t like about us. We are all dealing with our own conflicts.

5. Hotaru no Hikari (manga)

There is also a Japanese drama and it has two seasons. I used to be unhappy with myself if I was not productive. There were a certain number of tasks I felt I needed to do every day and I don’t agree with that anymore. It’s okay to just relax some days. 🙂

6. Great Teacher Onizuka (Japanese drama)

It’s based on the manga and anime. I like the live-action from 1999 but I’m sure the newer one is good too. I haven’t watched it.

I watched GTO right before I started university and it taught me so many life lessons.

7. Kurosagi (Japanese drama)

MV5BNGNiYWUxZjMtNzg4ZC00MTQyLWJiZjUtODZkZTEwZWZmYjQyXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNjA2OTcwNzE@._V1_

There is a movie too but I felt unsatisfied after I watched it. :/ The art style in the manga is not very appealing. I’m caught up on the chapters though hahaha.

The drama doesn’t have such a big influence on me now. When I was high school, I loved Kurosaki so I watched each episode multiple times. He brought out the best person in me because I felt inspired to dress nicer, eat healthier and I even learned to cook some foods. It’s pretty weird that a fictional character can do this.

My Style 2

My fashion style ALWAYS changes. The main features of my current style are my round glasses (no choice lol), a choker, and rolled up jeans. I dress like this on some days.

I wear denim jeans on the days I have work. If I didn’t work, I don’t think I would wear pants. At first I was very unhappy about it (I love wearing knee high socks) because I felt like I couldn’t be myself. Well you know I would be happiest if I could spent the entire day at home by myself watching anime, reading manga, gaming, listening to music, drawing on my tablet, and sleeping.
