I like to accessorize everything!

My walls have posters, backpack has a keychain and pin,  keys have a keychain, keyboard has panda cover, phone has Luffy charm, and more. Then there are jewelry and hair accessories. ^^

Fun day with Maiko

Maiko is a Japanese exchange student I met some months ago at a social event. She is returning home soon, so I had to see her again one last time.

We went to Suika in Vancouver, BC for lunch. I got miso ramen and it tasted great.

Even though I’ve only hung out with Maiko during that social event, she got me a gift. She is such a kind-hearted person, and so much fun to hang out with. I wish I got to see her more during the school year but life was so hectic. It’s a letter set from Japan with paper, envelopes, and stickers.

Details. This is really good quality.

I picked up a couple of cosplay things (brown short wig, and green sneakers – for Kido). We went shopping after our lunch and I also bought the video game, Star Ocean. Maiko bought way more things than me.

I’m really going to miss Maiko, but I’m glad I got to see her before she goes back to Japan.

I am fine the way I am

I got a certificate the other day, and I felt proud of myself. It’s been a while since I felt that way.

Jian Rou is my legal name but you may stick with Rose =)

I remember I was unhappy about not being as smart as other people in my school. A friend said that I was already really smart since I attend the University of British Columbia. I knew that only a fairly small percentage of people from my high school year got accepted, but at the time it didn’t really make me feel better.

Justin Trudeau, the current Prime Minister of Canada – as well as two other PMs – were educated at my school. I realize that I am not in a bad place.

I still feel this way sometimes but I’ve learned to accept myself and be proud of myself more. I want to practice more self-love and be better to myself.

Note: I am not trying to show off and I am sorry if anyone feels that I am. I had serious issues with my self-confidence in general.

Granny Style

Sometimes I dress like a grandma. Why? ‘Cause it’s super comfy!!! I’m wearing the most comfortable shoes ever and I’ve had them for like 4 years LOL. Plus I’m wearing socks with them so extra granny points.

If you also wear the granny style like me, do not falter. We are wise beyond our years for dressing comfortably and not hurting our feet. We’re the cool people.


Shout out to the SNOW app for making me 9999 times cuter than I actually am. My eyes are not actually huge.

Rest in Space Tour – Vancouver, BC

Feb-20-2017

I have a feeling that a lot of fans who went are younger than me because they go to high school. I loved Falling in Reverse, Pierce the Veil and several other bands when I was a teenager too, but I did not have the luxury of owning band merch. When I was a huge fan of these bands, Hot Topic did not open in my area yet.

Even though I am older now, I’m glad I still had the energy to move around on the ground floor. I screamed a lot, and I was so sweaty at the end of it. LOL.

If you want to check these bands out, I just want to warn younger and more sensitive readers that there is swearing involved.

People are often surprised to find out that I like these bands (and probably will be more surprised if they knew that I was literally obsessed with them in high school). I just want to say that music taste does not mean anything about a person. Most fans do have the coloured hair and tattoo/piercing look, so I can understand their point of view. It is, however, an incorrect assumption which is unfortunate.

Falling in Reverse

  • The Drug in Me is You
  • Alone
  • Just Like You
  • Fashionably Late
  • Bad Girls Club
  • Loser
  • I’m Not a Vampire
  • God, If You Are Above… (and more)

When Ronnie Radke sang Loser, my heart sank a little because I could hear the hurt in his voice.

Before the band performed Just Like You, he asked people who think of themselves as a-holes to raise their hand. Then, he said that those that did not raise their hands were being a-holes too – for not raising their hands. I thought that was pretty funny and clever. He asked the audience to raise up their middle fingers as they performed. Have you ever guilty about something?

Well, you probably have or else you’re lying. The concert experience made those unsettling thoughts fade by making them seem normative. That is why I think rock concerts are therapeutic for some people. It’s not for everybody, though.

Their Drug in Me is You album was one of my favourites. When Fashionably Late came out in 2013, I was not the biggest fan of their changed style of music (incorporating rap with rock). However, when they played Alone, my opinion changed. Ronnie is actually a really good rapper and I support any kind of music they want to perform.

I think that Ronnie’s personal life and his lyrics can be seen as controversial. However, if we don’t focus on the details too much and just understand the overall message of the song, that is what matters. We are probably not going to relate to every word he says. Sometimes I disagree with the lyrics – I don’t worship him like a god. I admire the band immensely as one of the bands that influenced my teenage years.

I liked that Ronnie asked the audience to sing parts of the songs with him. That is because I knew every song except for one of them (because it’s new).

This was their first show in Canada!

Pierce the Veil

  • King For a Day
  • Bulletproof Love
  • Bulls in the Bronx
  • Caraphernelia
  • Circles
  • Stay Away From My Friends
  • The Divine Zero (and more)

I stood in the area in front of Tony Perry but I have no complaints because he’s really cute. LOL.

I am happy to have experienced PTV’s first performance with a pianist: Jaime!

Final/closing thoughts:

I HAD A TON OF FUN! Age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, physical appearance, and personal life events did not matter, which made the whole thing even more awesome.

Daily

OK, posting this much is super unusual of me. Maybe I have more energy now, or could it be that I’ve been in a good mood in the past weeks? 😉

The milk bottle is actually a drink but I kept the bottle because it’s cute. >< I’m someone who is concerned about how things look!!
