hello hello

What’s up? Hope everyone is doing well.

Practicum started so I’m busy with that now. I’m getting a cartilage piercing soon so I’m pretty excited about that.

Rose (me) and a rose.

It’s autumn and some leaves have fallen to the ground. Most roses have begun to wilt, but this one is still in bloom, for now. Every rose has its own timeline, I guess. Also, I wonder why I’m attracted to the white roses over the more vibrant colours.


I’ve been posting on my Tumblr, so that still exists. There are some things I’ve only written on Tumblr.

I’ve also added a new page on my blog, called Review List. You’ll find a list of anime reviews, manga analysis, drama reviews, and game reviews there. I’ll be adding to that list soon! One of my blog goals is to write more anime reviews, and hopefully novel reviews as well.

Chase the Light!

School Update + Gifts from Moya

As some of you guys know, I graduated in May 2018 with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. I am back in school now, doing my second degree in Social Work. I still attend the University of British Columbia, which was my top choice because I can commute from home and I have friends there.

I’m done my first week and I’m enjoying it a lot. I want to become a social worker, and I feel really good and confident about this decision. 🙂 It’s a two-year program and I have all my classes with the same 50~ classmates.

I had lunch with Moya on campus today and she gave me gifts! These are gifts from her Taiwan trip. I love stickers – I stick them on my transit card, notebooks, electronic devices, and letters I write to friends. I also love No Face from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away, so I really like the No Face pen. Lastly, I got bubble tea flavoured chocolate. I’ve never seen that before and I love bubble tea. Thank you, Moya! ❀

My Fashion Styles Throughout the Years

I wanted to explain my style to someone but decided it was easier to do it through pictures. These are pictures I’ve posted on this blog. So if you see this, this post is for you. Lol. If you don’t see this, that’s okay too.

2015

In my first year of university, I wore hoodies and treated myself to bubble tea after every exam. I dressed up on special occasions like birthdays. The alpacasso was a gift from my friends.

2016

I put in effort into my appearance by wearing dresses. Then I felt sad at one point but felt free and chill after. I started to cosplay but very casually.

2017

I wore my Tokyo Ghoul necklace and chokers, and wore pigtails. During my breaks, I wore comfortable clothes at home. No sweat pants!

2018 – now

I wore a lot of black during a time I wasn’t happy and I really liked pink eyeshadow. Then I got into a new style so I wore baggy skirts, dresses and pants. Still no sweat pants. My cosplays improved.

Just today, I’ve decided I’m into plaid.

GUMI Megpoid Cosplay – Difficult Love/Nankai Renai

Nankai Renai is a song by GUMI, one of my favourite vocaloids. The song is about a difficult love. This was my first time expressing more sad expressions in cosplay.

I really love this cosplay. Of course, I worked with a team.

None of these photos are edited. I attended cosplayers Hana and Baozi’s panel on posing for cosplay the other week and they said that research is very important. Research on finding a suitable location to shoot and also expressing what the character feels in the source material. Time of day to shoot is also important, in which they recommended cosplaying in the evening.

That’s why I chose a dock as the location during a time that was not hot. I tried to replicate some of the poses from the music video, and the photographer was great with directing the shots.

The shots wouldn’t look nearly as good if it weren’t for my makeup artist! So I am very, very thankful to my team, and also to my readers for supporting me in my cosplay hobby! ^_^
