Dinner with Moya

If you’re an anime blogger, you probably know Moya from her blog, The Moyatorium. If you’ve read a certain older blog post of mine, you would know that I met her for the first time in February of this year. I bumped into her on the bus a while back, so this is technically our third time meeting!

We went to Hachibei, a Japanese restaurant my Psych professor told me about. I ordered katsudon (pork cutlet) and Moya ordered the tofu hamburger.

I hate feeling bored so I carry games and books (sometimes manga) to keep myself busy. It’s mostly for public transit and if I have to wait for people.

Vancity Eats (Part 6)

I write up food blog posts three times a year: after the first term of school, after the second term of school, and after the summer.

Term two of school recently ended so here is part six! You can view part five here. That post has all the links to the earlier Vancity Eats posts. Once again, these are some of the foods I’ve eaten with my crew.

Okay, enough chit-chat LOL. Time to make some of you guys hungry. >:)

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. ^_^

Study Date with Moya

Moya (Moyatori) from The Moyatorium goes to the same university as me. Today, we met for the first time at a café!

Moya was trying to figure out my real name so that’s why we are holding Death Note volumes. I am L and Moya is Light.

Sketch: Hatsune Miku

I sketched Hatsune Miku last night. This is the *most* colouring I feel like doing at this time as I am still focusing on sketching. It’s missing details, but this is how I want it to look. ^^

I also went to a melonpan bakery yesterday! Apparently there is only one place in the province that sells melonpans and Japanese breads so… we had to go.

21

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.
