New glasses

What’s up? I’ve been working on a Shield Hero post but I’ll publish it once the series is complete. I have one more week of summer school and then I will have more time to blog and cosplay! I hope everyone is doing well!

Guess what?

I was wallowing in self-pity (I’m kidding!) and then it occurred to me that people have actually listened to my recommendations. Erased live-action, HIStory 2: Boundary Crossing, Cunning Single Lady, and Made in Abyss are just a few examples of this. Yes, I’m talking about you guys!! The best part? They enjoyed my recommendation.

That’s not all. Classmates and friends have watched shows I recommended such as Kaiji, One Outs, Violet Evergarden, Inuyashiki, Bloody Monday Japanese drama, Wotakoi and more. I’ve gotten nine people to watch Kaiji and counting. Maybe I have a knack for this.

You might have read my Why I Like Anime So Much post, in which I talked about my anime story. Never would I have imagined that people would listen to my recommendations, yet alone take interest in what I was watching.

Thank you for all your comments. I appreciate each and every one of them very much. ❤

I guess what I’m trying to say is that I feel refreshed, re-energized and recharged. I think I can do this.

I’ve been busy

I’m watching seven shows from this season so… the Spring 2019 Anime First Impressions post will be up within the next few days. Sorry for the delay.

I’ve been busy these past few weeks. I’ve been studying for finals and working on final assignments for uni. The thing is, I’ve been working four days a week and went to practicum two days a week. I also interviewed for a research assistant job. It’s kind of tiring to write papers after an eight-hour work day…

The good news? I finished my practicum hours yesterday and I got the job I interviewed for. Now I have two jobs. I still have a final exam and an assignment to finish, but I’m excited for future cosplays and blog posts. I have a list of cosplays and blog posts I want to write.

Listening to: 毛不易 – 消愁

Leaving Twitter

In August 2018, I wrote a post about my feelings towards Twitter and how much I hated it. It took a while, but I’m done with Twitter!

Reasons #3, 5 and 8 (unpleasant interactions, people complaining, and negative news) became the norm on my feed. Did I really want to open an app just to feel worse about people and the world? 

A note: 3-4 people would reach out to me regularly and ask if I was alright. I was actually puzzled about what made them concerned, but it’s because my tweets were negative. To me that is normal because I am a pessimist…. I mostly update my blog when I am in a good mood and/or if I have the energy to sit down and write. Twitter, on the other hand, is quick and easy. I can tweet something wherever I am, any time of the day because it only takes a few seconds to send out a tweet. Leaving Twitter would remove a platform for me to be negative and cynical, which is probably the best for me and others so they don’t have to worry.

Removing myself from that toxic environment will probably lift my mood in the long-term, and I’ll have some free time cleared up.

To breathe well is all I want

I feel like I’m being overly dramatic about this, but seasonal allergies + dust allergies + being sensitive to perfumes and foods with strong smells are a form of suffering. I don’t expect most people to understand, but my nose is blocked. My lips are dry. My eyes are swollen and itchy. My complexion is bad, I look like poop. That’s not the extent of it. A filter is applied here.

Tbh, I’m not sure if mouth masks help

It’s the same gif I used in June 2017 when I complained about allergies then.
