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, assessment paper, 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. 🙂

Chase the Light!

5 toppings – pearls, grass jelly, coconut jelly, pudding, red bean

I know I haven’t cosplayed in a while but guess what guys? I feel pretty motivated right now. 😉

  • Casual Luffy from One Piece (again – I posted a photo recently on my Instagram)
  • Rachel Gardner from Angels of Death
  • Light Yagami from Death Note
  • Conan from Detective Conan
  • Hotaru Shidare from Dagashi Kashi
  • Yuki from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (library shoot)
  • Misa Amane from Death Note (makeup and shoot in the distant future…)
  • Casual Yuno Gasai from Mirai Nikki
  • Darling from Darling in the Franxx
  • Luka from Just Be Friends
  • Earth-chan

I ordered a few things online so I’m just waiting for them now. In the meantime, I’ll try to find time to cosplay but to be honest I am super busy nowadays… 😦

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.

10 Happy Things

I was feeling quite pessimistic and negative, even though I am generally optimistic or neutral. That’s why I decided to blog about ten things that make me happy. Hopefully writing this post will make me feel a bit more appreciative of the little things in life, and it will be something I can read back on in the future.

1. Grass Jelly drink

Drinks_Chin_Chin_Grass_Jelly_Honey_grande

My friend gave me a canned grass jelly drink the other day and I loved it. Grass jelly is my favourite bubble tea topping to begin with, but having it as its own drink is cool. It’s a black drink! It’s the perfect amount of sweetness for me (which is not very sweet) and there are small grass jelly chunks. I definitely plan on buying a pack for myself.

2. Boys Love manhua

LOL LOL. I barely read boys love series now but I follow one shonen ai series, which is Here U Are. It’s by a Chinese author and it’s an ongoing series. Everything is in colour and the art is absolutely amazing. The pacing is slow, which makes the chapters seem short. I’m okay with this though because the relationship shouldn’t be rushed. Every time there is a new update, my day is made.

3. Tales of Vesperia

This is one of the games I’m currently playing. Most of the JRPGs I’ve played were traditional turn-based so I’m surprised that I’m enjoying the gameplay.  The story, characters and art are all good. I look forward to playing this all the time.

4. Making money

A feeling I hate is spending money without having earned anything. I’m happy that I have a part-time job now so I don’t feel like a lazy butt all the time.

5. Nice people on Twitter

I seriously get so much support on Twitter. Whenever I tweet that I’m in a bad mood, people write words of encouragement. Sometimes people send me private messages. Just the fact that people are trying to cheer me up is the best feeling. Plus, when I’m upset I don’t think rationally but others bring me back to normal. On top of that, I’ve never met these people in real life! It’s refreshing knowing how good the community is. My experience with Twitter has mostly been with anime fans and anime bloggers.

Even my tweets about random thoughts receive a lot of support. I don’t like messaging the same person too many times because I think I will annoy them, so Twitter is the place for me to write down all my thoughts. I don’t like keeping my thoughts bottled up.

6. NARUKO Tea Tree Refreshing Cooling Sunscreen

8939556405278

This is very specific. I don’t have this product yet, but I am planning on buying it. Not only is it sunscreen, it’s also an anti-acne product. I watched a video of Bii today and he gave his review on this product. All the online reviews I’ve seen are really positive too. I can’t wait to try this out.

7. Hm…

Matcha ice cream

matcha-green-tea-ice-cream

I can’t wait to eat this again. It’s not very sweet!

8. Latte

Protein-Packed Latte_square

I really like lattes. They look so cute and they also taste good. I would like to go to a cafe by myself or with a friend and order a hot drink. I also love London Fogs.

9. Cosplay

There are a couple of cosplays I’m planning on doing in the near future, as well as future cosplays I would love to do. I want to buy a long pink wig but I’m also saving money at the same time. Ah…

10. Hm

Bed

I’m ready to go to sleep hahaha. Hopefully I’ll have a nice dream.

These ten things are pretty specific to how I’m feeling at this moment. I’m sure most of these will change on any other day. I feel better now!

Changing Style & Musings

I’ve been posting a lot of cosplay pictures but I would also like to post more photos of me being myself.

Looking back at photos from just a few months ago (Sept 2017 – Jan 2018), I feel like I looked so young. I felt young too. I don’t really dress like this anymore. Bye bye, this style. (By the way, this is kind of a response or update to this post. I’m not sure why it’s one of my most popular posts hahaha.)

  • choker & Tokyo Ghoul anime necklace
  • beanie
  • hoodies & layers
  • pigtails & side pony tail
  • not shown: brown combat boots

I don’t know why my clothing style changes every few months. Maybe I get tired of the same style. I like to think that I’m always changing and evolving. c:

Now I like to wear wide black pants with Adidas Superstar sneakers. I don’t have photos yet because I just got into the style, hahaha. Even the jewelry I wear is different too. I don’t take as many outfit photos anymore but maybe there will be an update in the future…


Episodes 9 and 10 of My Hero Academia season 3 were amazing. I’ll watch every episode, but the episodes with villains are the ones I care about the most. If the episode’s focus is solely on the students, it’s not as enjoyable for me. In these recent episodes, I loved it how the professional superheroes came together to fight the villains. It was cool seeing the villains in one place. I am especially interested in the relationship between Tomura, my favourite character, and his master.
