All of these pictures were posted on my Instagram, but I thought I would post them in a blog format.
Can’t wait to read this book~
Katsu with soba~
My first Kaiji thing. It’s pretty much impossible to find anything from this anime in Canada… Thank you to my friend for the belated birthday gift! Those who watched Kaiji Season 2 will know about the dice… The ざわざわ wrapping paper OMG
Bought this Totoro mug cover
Picked this up yesterday at the store
Shungiku Nakamura is one of my favourite mangaka ^^

Should I keep doing this kind of monthly update? Let me know. x)
I recently came across a poem called ‘Alone’ by Edgar Allan Poe. My favourite part is the beginning:
From childhood’s hour I have not been As others were—I have not seen As others saw—I could not bring My passions from a common spring— From the same source I have not taken My sorrow—I could not awaken My heart to joy at the same tone— And all I lov’d—I lov’d alone—
I think it’s beautiful. There is some comfort in knowing that this is not a new feeling, since this poem is from the 1800s, lol. If you feel this way and other people feel this way, then are you still alone?
Anyways, has anyone tried green tea Coke? It’s a drink in Japan and I won’t be able to buy that here in Canada. I might try to make it myself by mixing green tea with Cola, but I don’t think I’ll be able to produce the same result, hahaha. I recently completed Zankyou no Terror (it’s now one of my favourite anime) and green tea was mixed with Cola.
I enjoy reviewing anime and realize that I haven’t been doing enough of it. One of my goals is to write more reviews.
Another goal is getting back to reading books that aren’t manga or webtoons. Don’t get me wrong – I adore comics with all my heart but there’s something lovely about literature too! I may potentially write more book reviews too.
I wonder why I dedicate so much time and energy into my hobbies (watching anime, cosplaying, blogging, drawing, taking photos with my camera, and more). I certainly don’t have to do any of these things. Then again, I wouldn’t like things to be any other way.
So my 23rd birthday just passed and now I’m writing this at 1 AM. It was a good birthday.
I think I’ve grown a lot in these past few years. I’m pretty chill now… A lot of things don’t bother me anymore. Or maybe I’ve just become desensitized to everything. Hahaha.
Seriously though, I can’t remember the last time I felt petty in a while. If I have a problem with someone, I feel comfortable confronting them about the issue now, while keeping the conversation respectful.
I’ve started doing things less for other peoples’ approval. I would say that I’ve become a more authentic person. Authenticity is one of my values and those who respect me and like me for who I am are people I cherish.
