Life Update

20180106_140000-1.jpg

I’m in a couple more polaroid photos but I don’t have good photos of them.

For my electives this term I’m taking Comics and Anime. I’m excited for Comics because I will have a chance to improve my sketching and have it actually count as homework. Anime class is good too because reading manga (ex. Ouran High School Host Club) is my homework! Plus, we will watch some anime films during class time like Kimi no Na Wa.

I also got the Kiki’s Delivery Service cosplay from my Secret Santa. ^^ I don’t have the Kimi no Na Wa bracelet/hair tie but I will still cosplay as Mitsuha one day. I’m still waiting for my eyeshadow to arrive so makeup for cosplays will have to wait.

Thanks to everyone who wished me luck on my search for strawberry water. I found it again, and bought 12 bottles, lol.


Listening to: BiSH – GiANT KiLLERS. My favourite girls idol group is BiSH (Brand-new idol SHiT).

Hibernation

Hello guys, it’s past 12 AM now and I’m pleased to announce that I’m going on hibernation for 6 days! Well, it’s not really like hibernation at all but I basically just won’t go out of the house for 6 days haha. ><

I am very content and excited for this. I feel the most safe and comfortable in solitude. I am actually a very sociable person haha but recently it’s been taxing. I’ve been getting headaches too. ;__;

Oh yeah, I ordered an eyeshadow palette online because I decided to get back into makeup. The colour scheme is red velvet instead of brown because I like pinker shades more. ^^

Series that Changed My Life

These are the series I’ve learned from. It’s important to note that these include tiny changes too! Needless to say, these are some of my favourite anime, manga, and Japanese dramas.

1. One Piece (anime)

I watch the anime and I also read the manga. I’m a lot more ahead in the manga lol but I will go back and watch all the episodes (800+). I’ve said this quite a few times in my blog already – One Piece is my favourite anime series of all time.

It showed me what friendship should look like because the Straw Hat Pirates have such a great dynamic. I’ve observed many of the same qualities in my own crew. ^^

One Piece is ridiculously funny and it brought back my laughter.

2. Liar Game (Japanese drama)

There are two seasons and a few movies. I’ve watched them all lol. There’s also a Korean drama and I’ve seen that too. I’ve also completed the manga. The ending of the manga was pretty disappointing but it’s still worth reading.

Liar Game was one of the things that made me interested in pursuing a degree in Psychology. My university was recently listed at #10 in Psychology, and this is a world ranking. That’s really cool. =D

I used to be super naive. Liar Game (and university) taught me that people tell lies. I think it’s better to know that people are not perfect.

3. Bloody Monday (Japanese drama)

There are two seasons of the Japanese drama, but I like season 1 more because J is the main antagonist. I’ve also read the first and third season of the manga. I think you should read season 1 of the manga first, but I definitely prefer season 3 because of J.

The drama and manga showed me that our problems are so trivial when we look at the world. That is comforting.

4. Durarara!! (anime)

I’m not the biggest fan of the manga, mostly because of the art style. I really like the soundtrack in the anime. Season 2 of the anime was not as good because they introduced too many characters in too little episodes. It seemed forced and rushed. The character design for Izaya looked better in Season 1.

Izaya is one of my favourite anime characters. I have to admit, he is a terrible person. However, his quotes on living in the present and moving on from the past “changed” me because the way I approached life changed. I became more present-oriented and I was able to move on from whatever it was that bothered me in the past. I love living in the present.

“You think you’re special? You’re not. Everyone lies, everyone hides things… Nobody makes it through this life being completely honest.”

“The only way to truly escape the mundane is for you to constantly be evolving. Whether you choose to aim high, or aim low. Enjoy each day for what it is.”

“Your guilt will be your past and that will be your God.”

Izaya Orihara

I think I was too harsh on others in the past. The show taught me that perhaps we shouldn’t be too critical of others. After all, there are probably some things that others don’t like about us. We are all dealing with our own conflicts.

5. Hotaru no Hikari (manga)

There is also a Japanese drama and it has two seasons. I used to be unhappy with myself if I was not productive. There were a certain number of tasks I felt I needed to do every day and I don’t agree with that anymore. It’s okay to just relax some days. 🙂

6. Great Teacher Onizuka (Japanese drama)

gto-1998-cast.jpg

It’s based on the manga and anime. I like the live-action from 1999 but I’m sure the newer one is good too. I haven’t watched it.

I watched GTO right before I started university and it taught me so many life lessons.

7. Kurosagi (Japanese drama)

MV5BNGNiYWUxZjMtNzg4ZC00MTQyLWJiZjUtODZkZTEwZWZmYjQyXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNjA2OTcwNzE@._V1_

There is a movie too but I felt unsatisfied after I watched it. :/ The art style in the manga is not very appealing. I’m caught up on the chapters though hahaha.

The drama doesn’t have such a big influence on me now. When I was high school, I loved Kurosaki so I watched each episode multiple times. He brought out the best person in me because I felt inspired to dress nicer, eat healthier and I even learned to cook some foods. It’s pretty weird that a fictional character can do this.

rip I haven’t drawn in so long that my tablet is gathering dust. *sweats* I can’t wait for the term to be over so I can relax for two weeks… then start summer school. ;__;

I am an adult woman who dresses up as girl characters (and sometimes as boys), plays with toys, is a fujoshi, and is in love with 2D boys. I also have no desire to change. ^^

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!
