My Love for Anime

You guys seemed to like my blog post, My Love for One Piece. That’s why I decided to do a blog post on my love for anime.

Manga & Light Novels

I mostly read manga online (oops). I also own a Durarara!! light novel, Shonen Jump & Shojo Beat magazines, and other anime-related books.

Fan Art

Going to Conventions (and Cosplaying)

Buying Stuff from Conventions

Cosplay

Incorporating Anime in My Everyday Style

I wear anime jewelry, decorate bags and other things with anime, and wear anime clothing.

Appreciating Cosplayers

Posters

I also have a Code Geass poster, One Piece and Vampire Knight BL posters. 😉

Figures

I don’t have many because 1) they’re expensive and 2) I don’t have space for them in my room. The Pokemon ones are from McDonald’s Happy Meals LOLL.

Plushies

Eating Food Because it was Shown in an Anime

I can feel my brother judging me for this…

Watching Anime (duh)

My favourite series are One Piece and Death Note. I also love Kaiji, Inuyashiki and Attack on Titan.

Listening to Music from Anime

My favourite opening is Unravel (Tokyo Ghoul) and my ringtone is The World (Death Note). I’ve been listening to My Hero (Inuyashiki) and Chase the Light! (Kaiji season 2) today.

Once again I want to emphasize that these are my ways of showing my love and appreciation for anime. Everyone is different, but I hope that it’s clear that I love anime. Hahaha.

To my friend

I agreed to a “no junk food” challenge and I broke the challenge today… BUT I didn’t know the punishment was going to be, “write a blog post about how cool the other person is.” It has to be a paragraph.

……………………..

My friend likes Dr Pepper so he’s cool like me because everyone knows I love Dr Pepper. My friend likes flumpool and other Japanese bands I like, and that makes him cool (because I like those bands). He should listen to more songs by BiSH though, including “My landscape.” Somehow I finished Steins;Gate because of him… I even watched the Special episode and now we’re watching the movie (and going to start season 2). To people who follow me on Twitter and have seen me complain about Steins;Gate, look at me now. LOLL

Does that make him cool? I think fans of Steins;Gate might think so.

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.

Pink things

My friend took me to a sushi restaurant and the ceiling was decorated with flowers!

My other friend came back from Disneyland and she gave me a bracelet! I love it because my Disney necklace is from Snow White.

A Thing About Twitter

Twitter was my main social media platform, but now I’m stepping away from it. I won’t deactivate my account, but I’m already using it a lot less. Here’s why it no longer interests me. Whenever something does not interest me anymore, I always have my reasons.

1. I am using social media less in general. Currently I don’t feel the need to share my life with others. I still take the same amount of photos as before, but I guess I’m a more private person now. I’ll still post my favourite posts here on my blog and Instagram, of course.

2. Due to reasons related to school and work, I’ve made my account private. I find that it’s less fun being private, and I feel less motivated to tweet. The reason is probably because of the retweeting culture, and others can’t retweet your tweets if you’re a private account.

3. Unpleasant interactions. All I do is tweet randomly about my day, or a random thought I had. I never ask for a dispute over a silly tweet that I could have not tweeted in the first place.

4. Indirect tweeting. I’ve seen a lot of these, but a lot of them are responses to others’ tweets and directing it to the public.

5. People complaining. I am aware that I complain too, but the environment influences the way I tweet. If everyone retweeted more happy and positive thoughts, I would too. You can’t retweet something if you don’t see much of it.

6. Time waster. Now that I don’t go on Twitter as often, I’ve had more time to do other things. Things that are more important than tweeting.

7. People make up news or twist news stories all the time on Twitter. We should always question information before we retweet anything, but a lot of people fail to do this. Twitter is not as bad as Facebook though.

8. Negative news. This is specifically news stories, not others’ personal tweets. I like to be informed about the world’s events, but there are more negative stories than positive ones.

9. When I log into Twitter after a break, I realize I haven’t missed much. Life goes on with or without your online presence.

Twitter used to give me energy because it gave me a place to interact with my online blogger friends. Now I am satisfied with commenting on blog posts. I used to like being updated on what was happening in the community, but now I realize it doesn’t really matter. Of course I am aware of the pros of Twitter, but right now the cons outweigh the pros. It is a toxic space for me and feels draining. Obviously I can’t speak for everyone, but this is my experience with Twitter.
