Don’t Quit

What’s up? Life is hard AF sometimes but we have to keep going!

Have I ever said that I love hot pot? I ate spicy hot pot at home yesterday with my family and it was so good!

What’s up? I hope everyone is doing well.

These past couple of weeks have been busy for me. I had to miss an anime convention and this weekend I can’t go to another event which makes me sad. ;__; There’s an assessment outline, client interviews, interview transcript, reflection papers, group facilitation, theory paper, practicum, work – all within a short timeframe.

So far I am pleased with the quality of my assignments, but anime viewing and reviewing have been put to a hold. Cosplaying has been put to a hold, but I’m still trying to maintain a social life. Hahaha.

I have been practising self-care, and I’ve been working hard to eat healthier. My current goal is to not sleep too late. ><

My blog isn’t doing too great right now in terms of stats, and it is a little demotivating. However, I am the type of person who would still blog, cosplay, draw and take pictures even if nobody liked anything I created. 🙂

What’s up?

Things are starting to be busy for me again because of school, practicum and work. I’ll try to do more song analyses/meanings posts because it seems like you guys like them. Book reviews are coming along but I have to finish reading the books first! The first three photos were taken with a Canon point-and-shoot.

I went back to Nitobe Memorial Garden the next day…

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I like homemade smoothies more than bubble tea now. Healthy foods and drinks just taste better, in my opinion. If you asked me a few months ago, my answer would be the opposite. I ate a chickpea salad the other day and I’m definitely going to eat it again.

I recently bought a few bottles of nail polish and threw out expired bottles. I used to paint my nails often in 2015 and 2016, and now it’s time to get back to it in 2019.

This design was done spontaneously. My blog is kind of the same, I don’t know what I’ll post next. I don’t have a schedule or anything – it really depends on what I’m feeling.

My Weeks in Pictures & My Favourite Songs (Mandopop/Cpop Edition)

I’m not sure which exact days these are from, but they’re just random pictures I’ve shared on my social media.

The day I found out that Megamasso disbanded. I didn’t even know

The day my friend went to Aberdeen Centre with me because I wanted to buy a few things (even though she went there the other day)

I took this on Christmas Day at midnight

Went to a popular cafe that specializes in matcha desserts. It’s called Nana’s Green Tea and I went with my friend

I got a Pink Panther keychain. I think I’ll add it to my school backpack

fresh start

I’ve decided to pursue photography as a hobby so I created an Instagram account, which will be the platform in which I’ll post my pictures. By no means am I trying to be professional or anything (I’m not interested in that!). I just think that photography brings me joy. It’s just for fun. I created a new account for it and it will be my main account from now on. I’ve abandoned the old main, personal account (only a handful of you guys know it) because 1, I don’t have feelings towards the pictures I posted and 2, I haven’t kept in contact with half of the people on there. It’s @misswaves

Here are some very old photos I’ve taken:

Feel free to follow me. I’ll follow back if you let me know who you are.

another diary post

I recently got my helix pierced (cartilage piercing). It actually didn’t hurt, but my pain tolerance is fairly high. I don’t feel any pain right now so I think the healing process is pretty good.

I took this picture on Zoro’s birthday, hahaha.
