July’s Favourites

We’re only a little over a week in July but these are my favourite things from this month! The last time I did a monthly favourite post was back in December 2017, so I thought it was time to do another one.

1. Photography

Thanks Carmen for the mug and strawberry matcha

I love taking photos of things I see in my life. I post my favourite photos on this blog, so this blog is my online photo diary. Everyone is welcome to look into a glimpse of my life.

2. Attack on Titan season 3

The new anime season is coming out this month and I’m excited to watch it. I haven’t watched it yet since it’s not out yet but I’m still putting it on this list LOL.

3. Dr Pepper

There’s no doubt that Steins;Gate increased Dr Pepper sales, but I’ve loved Dr Pepper before I watched it hahaha. When Okabe said that, I felt that.

4. Sushi

I like to eat tuna sushi just like my favourite anime character, Izaya Orihara.

5. Blue mophead hydrangea

Hydrangea macrophylla 'Nikko Blue' Optimized

I would love to cosplay in front of these flowers one day.

6. Mochi ice cream

Mochi-Ice-Cream-III-600x900

I’ve only had it once and it was so good. I can’t wait to eat this again.

7. …

Piercings

I only have two on each ear, but I love wearing earrings. Piercings are a way for me to express myself and I feel like myself with them. I think I’m done getting piercings for now.

8. TOMS shoes

I LOVED my sparkly black TOMS in 2015 but those were trashed a long time ago. I recently bought plain black TOMS and I wear them all the time! I like them because they feel very light.

9. Watermelon

Watermelons are my second favourite fruits! First favourite fruit would be blueberries. I used to be obsessed with strawberries but people change. I know I’m constantly changing.


Maybe you were expecting skincare or makeup products because that’s what most people do, but these are my favourite things of the month. Hahaha.

P.S. I KNOW that I talk about myself a lot. However, you must understand that my blog was originally an online diary and it is still an online diary. This blog did not start as an anime blog right off the bat. Anime posts came gradually.

When I write about anime, I often make the post a little personal. However, I think that adding your own experiences are nice because you get a unique perspective.

Sick but Happy

Some of you guys know that I hate the sun and heat. Well, a couple of days ago I got a fever and it didn’t go away until I spent the night downstairs on the sofa. It returned after I spent the next day in my room… probably because my room is on the third floor. I also hate winter so RIP me.

That’s why I’ve decided to stay indoors for the next few days. I cancelled my plans for today and watched a lot of One Piece. I feel a lot better now but in the beginning I couldn’t eat solid foods so I just ate almond flavoured tofu LOL. I really like it!

Back in July 2017 I wrote a blog post on a DIY idea for your room. (Click here.) Now I have photos! The left one is a polaroid of my friends and I in a family pose LOL. On the right is a picture I printed at Walmart off my phone. It’s from the time I went to a concert performed by EXO.

I talk a lot in this post!

Here’s something you may not know about me: I can fall asleep in one minute. It’s true. When I have to study I like to take 15-minute naps because when my phone alarm wakes me up, 1) the alarm surprises the heck out of me and 2) it feels as if I slept for two hours. Hahaha.

Well, I don’t overthink so maybe that’s why I’m able to do this. I can fall asleep to music I like too, but not if there are loud sounds outside.

The above photos are all photos I’ve posted on this blog before. Okay, so why am I showing these again? The phrases that annoy me are, “How old are you? You’re still watching cartoons?” or “How old are you? You still have plushies?” & yes – people have said these to me before.

I AM 21 AND YES, I’M STILL WATCHING ANIME AND YES, I STILL HAVE PLUSHIES. Do you understand now or do you still need help? ROFL. I am who I am. I like who I am.

Here’s another one I hear: “You take so many selfies.” Some of my followers ask for more selfies, lol.

It’s super annoying when people try to lecture you on how to live your life when they are not in the position to do so. I’m not talking about employers, professors, managers or supervisors, authorities of law, or people who hold some sort of power. I’m talking about strangers or peers who think they know you better than you know yourself. Of course it depends on the context but if it’s something ridiculous like my selfie taking or my anime watching habits, blab all you want but I am not going to listen to you!

Bottom line: If my MOM does not have any problems with my hobbies and interests, neither should you.

I have to clarify though, the VAST MAJORITY of all the people I’ve met have been incredibly supportive of me and everything I do. I am continuously amazed at peoples’ acceptance, kindness and support. Thank you for that. ❤

By the way, I really like the story of The Happy Prince by Oscar Wilde. I think it’s thought-provoking and very interesting. You should check it out!

Happy feelings

What’s up?

I’ve been busy updating my MAL (My Anime List). I’ve always known about it but felt like it was too much work so I never used the site. Now I see the benefits of having an account so I encourage every anime fan to do the same! ><

I don’t feel comfortable sharing my account because I read too many embarrassing series but I can share a screenshot of my stats if I finish. So far I have over 1000 episodes and 2500 manga chapters on there but I haven’t entered most of the shows/series yet.

I’ve also been thinking of my cosplans. I still want photos for Gumi Matryoshka, Mitsuha (Kimi no Na Wa), Umaru, and Akashi (Kuroko no Basuke). There is a particular location where I want to take photos for Mitsuha so we shall see.

New characters I want to cosplay as are Kiki (Kiki’s Delivery Service) and Luka (Just Be Friends).

 

The songs I listen to change every week and this morning I’ve been listening to:

– Noel’s Theme ~ The Shadow Hunter – Final Fantasy XIII OST
