Expect more diary posts

I think I’m FINALLY getting used to being at home all day, every day. My kalimba arrived and it’s really nice.

I don’t feel that lonely. I play games with my BFF almost every night and we also exercise and draw together. She recently got a drawing tablet. I wouldn’t be doing these three things as much if it weren’t for her, to be honest. (Everything is done virtually.)

I watch shows with my other friends. We’re also practicing the kalimba together since we ordered together. & of course, I have my family, online friends, and a few other close friends.

p.s. I have a penpal. In December 2019, I wrote a post called The Significance of the Letter. Did you know that I’ve published over 550 posts?

The Significance of the Letter

Violet Evergarden does an amazing job of portraying the significance of writing letters and receiving them. I thought the beginning of the anime was slow, but I’m very glad I completed it. Violet Evergarden does a great job at pulling at your heartstrings. Definitely give it a watch!

I was thinking about Violet Evergarden and letters in general, then thought about the letters and cards I’ve received over the years. I actually keep the majority of them, any card or letter that contains a personal message. Some, I keep in a box in my room. The rest, I keep downstairs.

Some letters and cards are from people I am no longer in touch with. I think it’s natural to drift away from people. Then we meet new people. There is nothing strange about that. The people that were once a part of my life were there for me during my highs and lows. Their letters and cards serve as a way for me to remember them, and evidence of the good moments we shared.

I write letters. In fact, I rarely give people cards. Some people tell me that they love that I write letters. I think that it is sometimes easier to convey feelings through words. I spend a long time on my letters. I write with different coloured pens sometimes. I also decorate them with stickers and stamps. I hope that people enjoy reading my letters. ^^

I graduated!

As some of you know, I studied at the University of British Columbia in British Columbia, Canada. I am from BC and I finished my Bachelor’s degree in four years. I majored in Psychology and I will be continuing my studies at UBC because I was accepted into the Social Work program.

I do feel proud of myself because I graduated at the age of 21 by taking a full course load. I started university right after high school and you need a high average to get in. The Social Work program was competitive as well and the interview was three hours! Anyways, that’s enough bragging. I have bragging rights on my own blog, right? Right??

I guess I don’t have much to say in this post, except for the words… thank you. Some of you guys have stuck with me through thick and thin and it means a lot to me. I love you~

I feel quite content right now. I’m happy. ^^

My Dream Anime Con

When I bought my ticket online for Anime Evolution, I used Eventbrite. That was just a few weeks ago. The process went smoothly and I had a good experience with them. By buying my ticket online, I didn’t have to pay at the door. It was nice because I bought my ticket early and got a discounted price. I printed my ticket out and just showed it to the people who organized the event and registered on their site.

Alright, my dream con includes the one and only… EIICHIRO ODA, the creator of One Piece! I would love to meet him… That would be a dream come true.

I would cosplay as a One Piece character (not sure who yet) and I would want to spend the con with all my AniBlogger and AniTwitter friends. (You guys know who you are… ^^) I want all my good friends to be there too. It would be good if it was a private event that only my friends and I can attend so no one has to wait in line… Am I being too selfish? (Well this is a dream so…)

I would also want Hiroshi Kamiya, the voice actor of Izaya Orihara, to be there. I want him to talk in Izaya’s voice for me. I also want to meet the Japanese voice actor of Deidara from Naruto Shippuden. I’ll definitely need English translators there.

More people I want to meet are my favourite cosplayers, like Yuegene Fay. I want to take pictures with everyone. It would be nice to have a photographer who just follows me around and takes a bunch of candid and staged pictures LOL.

In the last two anime events I went to, I did not find a lot of anime merchandise I was interested in. That’s why in my dream con, I want a lot of One Piece and Izaya merchandise. I want cheap prices please… Can the ticket prices be free for everyone too? LOL.

A restaurant or food stalls would be nice. I always buy food nearby when I attend anime events but they’re always outside the convention location. It would be super convenient if there was a restaurant… Not cafe because that’s not filling enough. Real food!

The location should be in… Japan. Then after the convention I can explore Japan with my friends hahaha. I want to go to Ikebukuro and all those anime attractions.

Of course we need music so there should be our favourite bands performing there, the ones who sing anime openings and endings. Flumpool is my favourite Japanese band. I want Ryuta to sing in Chinese for me. ❤

What else… I want props outside and inside the convention building for photo-taking. Stuff like a cool-looking background or the Thousand Sunny (lol) would be good.

Oh! I also want a bunch of prize draws where everyone gets a raffle ticket and there are multiple prizes to be won. Prizes like… authentic nendoroids and One Piece flag, etc. Okay, that’s all I can think of for now.

Hope you liked this post!

Vampire Knight – Yuki Cross Cosplay

Yuki Cross is a character from the anime, Vampire Knight. I actually don’t like Yuki but I don’t try to limit myself to only cosplay characters I like.

Funny story: I got mosquito bites when I was doing this. My blood was literally sucked when I was cosplaying for a vampire anime.

Don’t worry, I have good pain tolerance.

Week Recap

Sindy at Infiinty inspired me to do this post (with gifs) after I read her’s. Coincidentally, I’m drinking red tea as I type this blog post. This was not intentional.

I sneeze so much now and I frequently have a runny nose. I am not sick. Something triggers it, like dust in an old shop or a woman’s strong perfume. After the triggering event, I don’t stop sneezing for weeks. I should probably see a doctor.

Well, I’ve reached 900 followers so thank you for all the love, kindness and support. It’s a rewarding experience when younger girls open up to me about their experiences with cyber bullying, post-secondary goals, and one girl even sent me her graduation photo! I felt so touched…

I’ve developed many meaningful friendships thanks to this blog. I talk to some friends almost every day on my social media. The AniTwitter/AniBlogging community makes life so fun. The power of the Internet is amazing because it brings people together.

My Week in Pictures

More like two weeks. I have lots more photos but I’m just going to post these ones.

January 11

I watched One Piece Film: Gold. It was awesome! It was really funny and Robin made hand puns. Brook made alive jokes again and Zoro was as strong as ever! Also Lucci and Spandam made their appearance which made me so happy. The message of the film (from my interpretation) is that gold/money can’t buy you everything. Friendship is more important!
