Don’t Quit

What’s up? Life is hard AF sometimes but we have to keep going!

Have I ever said that I love hot pot? I ate spicy hot pot at home yesterday with my family and it was so good!

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.

My Love for Anime

You guys seemed to like my blog post, My Love for One Piece. That’s why I decided to do a blog post on my love for anime.

Manga & Light Novels

I mostly read manga online (oops). I also own a Durarara!! light novel, Shonen Jump & Shojo Beat magazines, and other anime-related books.

Fan Art

Going to Conventions (and Cosplaying)

Buying Stuff from Conventions

Cosplay

Incorporating Anime in My Everyday Style

I wear anime jewelry, decorate bags and other things with anime, and wear anime clothing.

Appreciating Cosplayers

Posters

I also have a Code Geass poster, One Piece and Vampire Knight BL posters. 😉

Figures

Plushies

Eating Food Because it was Shown in an Anime

I can feel my brother judging me for this…

Watching Anime (duh)

My favourite series are One Piece and Death Note. I also love Kaiji, Inuyashiki and Attack on Titan.

Listening to Music from Anime

My favourite opening is Unravel (Tokyo Ghoul) and my ringtone is The World (Death Note). I’ve been listening to My Hero (Inuyashiki) and Chase the Light! (Kaiji season 2) today.

Once again I want to emphasize that these are my ways of showing my love and appreciation for anime. Everyone is different, but I hope that it’s clear that I love anime. Hahaha.

Apple Bunnies

I’m not sure if you remember my post on My Top 6 Taiwanese dramas, but I would like to add a drama to that list! At number three, it’s Autumn’s Concerto (2009). It’s one of the most popular Taiwanese dramas.

This drama just gets sadder and sadder. I continue it because I know it has a happy ending but you need a tissue box ready. One tissue box might not be enough! It’s a love story and the events that happen to the couple are unfortunate but they are meant to be together. Fair warning: I did not like the male protagonist at all in the first episode but he becomes a really good person pretty soon.

This drama reminds me why I love Taiwanese dramas so much.

Also I’m bummed that I can’t find my Death Note books. I wanted to write a blog post on Death Note and use the books as references but I guess that’s not happening until I find them… IF I ever find them. TT_TT

10 Happy Things

I was feeling quite pessimistic and negative, even though I am generally optimistic or neutral. That’s why I decided to blog about ten things that make me happy. Hopefully writing this post will make me feel a bit more appreciative of the little things in life, and it will be something I can read back on in the future.

1. Grass Jelly drink

Drinks_Chin_Chin_Grass_Jelly_Honey_grande

My friend gave me a canned grass jelly drink the other day and I loved it. Grass jelly is my favourite bubble tea topping to begin with, but having it as its own drink is cool. It’s a black drink! It’s the perfect amount of sweetness for me (which is not very sweet) and there are small grass jelly chunks. I definitely plan on buying a pack for myself.

2. Boys Love manhua

9812211dd3e4c86c94665019bae408cc1a1903c7v2_hq

LOL LOL. I barely read boys love series now but I follow one shonen ai series, which is Here U Are. It’s by a Chinese author and it’s an ongoing series. Everything is in colour and the art is absolutely amazing. The pacing is slow, which makes the chapters seem short. I’m okay with this though because the relationship shouldn’t be rushed. Every time there is a new update, my day is made.

3. Tales of Vesperia

tales-of-vesperia_1528664687770

This is one of the games I’m currently playing. Most of the JRPGs I’ve played were traditional turn-based so I’m surprised that I’m enjoying the gameplay.  The story, characters and art are all good. I look forward to playing this all the time.

4. Making money

A feeling I hate is spending money without having earned anything. I’m happy that I have a part-time job now so I don’t feel like a lazy butt all the time.

5. Nice people on Twitter

I seriously get so much support on Twitter. Whenever I tweet that I’m in a bad mood, people write words of encouragement. Sometimes people send me private messages. Just the fact that people are trying to cheer me up is the best feeling. Plus, when I’m upset I don’t think rationally but others bring me back to normal. On top of that, I’ve never met these people in real life! It’s refreshing knowing how good the community is. My experience with Twitter has mostly been with anime fans and anime bloggers.

Even my tweets about random thoughts receive a lot of support. I don’t like messaging the same person too many times because I think I will annoy them, so Twitter is the place for me to write down all my thoughts. I don’t like keeping my thoughts bottled up.

6. NARUKO Tea Tree Refreshing Cooling Sunscreen

8939556405278

This is very specific. I don’t have this product yet, but I am planning on buying it. Not only is it sunscreen, it’s also an anti-acne product. I watched a video of Bii today and he gave his review on this product. All the online reviews I’ve seen are really positive too. I can’t wait to try this out.

7. Hm…

Matcha ice cream

matcha-green-tea-ice-cream

I can’t wait to eat this again. It’s not very sweet!

8. Latte

Protein-Packed Latte_square

I really like lattes. They look so cute and they also taste good. I would like to go to a cafe by myself or with a friend and order a hot drink. I also love London Fogs.

9. Cosplay

There are a couple of cosplays I’m planning on doing in the near future, as well as future cosplays I would love to do. I want to buy a long pink wig but I’m also saving money at the same time. Ah…

10. Hm

Bed

I’m ready to go to sleep hahaha. Hopefully I’ll have a nice dream.

These ten things are pretty specific to how I’m feeling at this moment. I’m sure most of these will change on any other day. I feel better now!
