Leaving Twitter

In August 2018, I wrote a post about my feelings towards Twitter and how much I hated it. It took a while, but I’m done with Twitter!

Reasons #3, 5 and 8 (unpleasant interactions, people complaining, and negative news) became the norm on my feed. Did I really want to open an app just to feel worse about people and the world? 

A note: 3-4 people would reach out to me regularly and ask if I was alright. I was actually puzzled about what made them concerned, but it’s because my tweets were negative. To me that is normal because I am a pessimist…. I mostly update my blog when I am in a good mood and/or if I have the energy to sit down and write. Twitter, on the other hand, is quick and easy. I can tweet something wherever I am, any time of the day because it only takes a few seconds to send out a tweet. Leaving Twitter would remove a platform for me to be negative and cynical, which is probably the best for me and others so they don’t have to worry.

Removing myself from that toxic environment will probably lift my mood in the long-term, and I’ll have some free time cleared up.

To breathe well is all I want

I feel like I’m being overly dramatic about this, but seasonal allergies + dust allergies + being sensitive to perfumes and foods with strong smells are a form of suffering. I don’t expect most people to understand, but my nose is blocked. My lips are dry. My eyes are swollen and itchy. My complexion is bad, I look like poop. That’s not the extent of it. A filter is applied here.

Tbh, I’m not sure if mouth masks help

It’s the same gif I used in June 2017 when I complained about allergies then.

Art V Artist

There’s another trend going on right now called #artvartist. I thought I would join the bandwagon.

Back in April 2018, I did the Cosplay VS Cosplayer challenge, which is similar but for cosplays instead of drawings.

Guess what? I’ve completed all those assignments and now it’s reading week. That means I can review anime again. Watch for blog updates. ^-^

What’s up? I hope everyone is doing well.

These past couple of weeks have been busy for me. I had to miss an anime convention and this weekend I can’t go to another event which makes me sad. ;__; There’s an assessment outline, client interviews, interview transcript, reflection papers, group facilitation, theory paper, practicum, work – all within a short timeframe.

So far I am pleased with the quality of my assignments, but anime viewing and reviewing have been put to a hold. Cosplaying has been put to a hold, but I’m still trying to maintain a social life. Hahaha.

I have been practising self-care, and I’ve been working hard to eat healthier. My current goal is to not sleep too late. ><

My blog isn’t doing too great right now in terms of stats, and it is a little demotivating. However, I am the type of person who would still blog, cosplay, draw and take pictures even if nobody liked anything I created. 🙂

New year

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I like homemade smoothies more than bubble tea now. Healthy foods and drinks just taste better, in my opinion. If you asked me a few months ago, my answer would be the opposite. I ate a chickpea salad the other day and I’m definitely going to eat it again.

I recently bought a few bottles of nail polish and threw out expired bottles. I used to paint my nails often in 2015 and 2016, and now it’s time to get back to it in 2019.

This design was done spontaneously. My blog is kind of the same, I don’t know what I’ll post next. I don’t have a schedule or anything – it really depends on what I’m feeling.

My Week in Pictures 2

I’m not sure which exact days these are from, but they’re just random pictures I’ve shared on my social media.

The day I found out that Megamasso disbanded. I didn’t even know

The day my friend went to Aberdeen Centre with me because I wanted to buy a few things (even though she went there the other day)

I took this on Christmas Day at midnight

Bought a drink before my work shift

Went to a popular cafe that specializes in matcha desserts. It’s called Nana’s Green Tea and I went with my friend

I got a Pink Panther keychain. I think I’ll add it to my school backpack
