Weekly Update

It’s Tuesday, but I don’t really care about the actual date.

 

I’ve never liked reading or watching the news. It makes me feel angry but I do recognize that it’s very, very important to be aware of what’s going on in the world. Social media has been filling me in on recent news stories. The world is not (and will never be) perfect.

I’m getting a few cosplay things in the near future (including two wigs).¬†I have lots of cosplays planned out.

I made all my social media private. You can still request to follow me on my Twitter and Instagram (links on blog). I don’t want everyone finding stuff about me so openly. >.>

 

With the end of the school year approaching, I will probably not be active as much. I have important things to do, like watch One Piece.

“Watching One Piece is important?” – is what I think some person I wouldn’t like would say.

Yes it is, because it’s something that value. I would gladly lock myself in my room and watch One Piece than step outside (or talk to annoying person) any day.

Death Note notebook

I did a gift exchange with fellow blogger, Bambi. You should check out her blog! Bambi lives in America while I am in Canada.

I got the notebook from the anime, Death Note! P.S. I took these photos on my bed so that explains the stuffed animals.

String and feather pen

To my pleasant surprise, there are already names in here. The names of the actual characters who died are here. The writings are in Japanese Kanji. I appreciate this because it sticks closer to the original series and not the English dub. Do¬†not fret, I¬†can read some Chinese (which is basically the same as Kanji) which means I will help in translating. I’ll show some photos, but please – if you have not watched or finished the series but plan to, stop reading here. These are spoilers! I did not take photos of all the written names because that would be a lot.

The first name Light Yagami wrote in the Death Note: Kurou Otoharada. He was the criminal at the nursery home. Light tested out the Death Note by writing his name.

Takuo Shibuimaru’s name is written in different ways. Light wasn’t sure of the spelling of his name. He was the person on a motorcycle who was harrassing¬†a woman. At this point Light was still testing out the notebook.

Lind L. Tailor was a criminal sentenced¬†to die, and¬†went on live television while pretending to be L. This was L’s plan to find clues on Kira. Light killed him, thinking that he was the real L.

Light tests the boundaries of the Death Note by getting inmates to do strange tasks, before their deaths.

In order to get the identity of the agent following him, Light comes up with an elaborate plan involving the death of criminal Kiichiro Osoreda.

Both Light and Raye Penber write on this page. Penber kills all 12 FBI agents without even knowing it! It is cool to know the number of characters who have touched and/or written in this notebook.

20170313_212340_mh1489466411471

Naomi Misora (killed by Light) and Kiyomi Takada (killed by Teru Mikami) are amongst the other names written inside.

The last name in this is Light’s name, written by Ryuk.

The notebook has the major names of victims killed by the Death Note. It does not have all the names (which I am thankful for because A LOT of criminals died in the series). It is not 100% accurate. For example, the page Penber wrote on was ripped out of the Death Note. The fact that it has the important deaths in one place is something that I like.

The rest of the notebook pages are blank, free for the owner to use. Hence, the feather pen. You may be wondering if I will be writing in this. I wanted this because I am a huge fan of the anime, and also for cosplay purposes. As far as I know, I will not be writing names down.

I am fine the way I am

I got a certificate the other day, and I felt proud of myself. It’s been a while since I felt that way.

Jian Rou is my legal name but you may stick with Rose =)

I remember I was¬†unhappy about not being¬†as smart as other people in my school. A friend said that I was already really smart since I¬†attend the University of British Columbia.¬†I knew that only a fairly small percentage of people from my high school year got accepted, but¬†at the time it didn’t¬†really make me feel better.

Justin Trudeau, the current Prime Minister of Canada – as well as two other PMs – were educated at my school. I realize that I am not in a bad place.

I still feel this way sometimes but I’ve learned to accept myself and be proud of myself more. I want to practice more self-love and be better to myself.

Note: I am not trying to show off and I am sorry if anyone feels that I am. I had serious issues with my self-confidence in general.

I think it’s so funny when I see people I know randomly. They always think I’m dressed up for something but I’m really just getting¬†food. Then when they ask who I’m meeting… it becomes a little awkward? It’s me, myself and I.

I admit that I do dress up a little by wearing baggy clothes and a cap or something. I do that to¬†disguise myself so I can AVOID people. It’s not working.

It’s especially awks when people from my high school are the cashiers. I just act like I don’t know¬†them LOL. It makes me feel a little intimated by the fact that they know what I’m buying. It’s a little intimate¬†and that’s too close for me.¬†Anyone else feel this way, or am¬†I just weird?

I’ve been told that I’m a little hard to meet up with. That’s because I literally love staying at home. I don’t really want people coming over either lol. Idk, a lot of people say that I’m popular (I’M NOT MAKING THIS UP) but I like being at home.

I’m wearing three necklaces right now and no one is going to see. I don’t need anyone to see because I don’t dress the way that I do for other people. I have over 10 anime posters but they’re all for me only. I have no idea where I’m going with this but maybe you guys can get to know me better this way. ;_;

Blah blah blah… congrats on reading¬†to the end!

Rest in Space Tour – Vancouver, BC

Feb-20-2017

I have a feeling that a lot of fans who went are younger than me because they go to high school. I loved Falling in Reverse, Pierce the Veil and several other bands when I was a teenager too, but I did not have the luxury of owning band merch. When I was a huge fan of these bands, Hot Topic did not open in my area yet.

Even though I am older now, I’m glad I still had the energy to move around on the ground floor. I screamed a lot, and I was so sweaty at the end of it. LOL.

If you want to check these bands out, I just want to warn younger and more sensitive readers that there is swearing involved.

People are often surprised to find out that I like these bands (and probably will be more surprised if they knew that I was literally obsessed with them in high school). I just want to say that music taste does not mean anything about a person. Most fans do have the coloured hair and tattoo/piercing look, so I can understand their point of view. It is, however, an incorrect assumption which is unfortunate.

Falling in Reverse

  • The Drug in Me is You
  • Alone
  • Just Like You
  • Fashionably Late
  • Bad Girls Club
  • Loser
  • I’m Not a Vampire
  • God, If You Are Above… (and more)

When Ronnie Radke sang Loser, my heart sank a little because I could hear the hurt in his voice.

Before the band performed Just Like You, he asked people who think of themselves as a-holes to raise their hand. Then, he said that those that did not raise their hands were being a-holes too Рfor not raising their hands. I thought that was pretty funny and clever. He asked the audience to raise up their middle fingers as they performed. Have you ever guilty about something?

Well, you probably have or else you’re lying. The concert experience¬†made those unsettling thoughts fade by making them¬†seem normative. That is why I think rock concerts are therapeutic for some people. It’s not for everybody, though.

Their Drug in Me is You album was one of my favourites. When Fashionably Late came out in 2013, I was not the biggest fan of their changed style of music (incorporating rap with rock). However, when they played Alone, my opinion changed. Ronnie is actually a really good rapper and I support any kind of music they want to perform.

I think that Ronnie’s personal life and his lyrics can be seen as controversial. However, if we don’t focus on the details too much and just understand the overall message of the song, that is what matters. We are probably not going to relate to every word he says. Sometimes I disagree with the lyrics – I don’t worship him like a god. I admire¬†the band immensely as one of the bands that influenced my teenage years.

I liked that Ronnie asked the audience to sing parts of the songs with him. That is because I knew every song except for one of them (because it’s new).

This was their first show in Canada!

Pierce the Veil

  • King For a Day
  • Bulletproof Love
  • Bulls in the Bronx
  • Caraphernelia
  • Circles
  • Stay Away From My Friends
  • The Divine Zero (and more)

I stood in the area in front of¬†Tony Perry but I have no complaints because he’s really cute. LOL.

I am happy to have experienced PTV’s first performance with a pianist: Jaime!

Final/closing thoughts:

I HAD A TON OF FUN! Age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, physical appearance, and personal life events did not matter, which made the whole thing even more awesome.

Life of a Blogger

Sometimes people ask me for blogging tips. Honestly, I have no idea.

One Piece posters at the back

I don’t really do reviews and I don’t really do tutorials either. To be frank, I’m not really contributing anything. All I do is stay at home and watch One Piece. Yet some people are still asking me for advice on blogging. I guess people are interested in my blog to learn more about what it means to have a simple and authentic life. I just take photos of things that are already occurring in my life and then post them to my blog. Everyone is different but for me, blogging does not take too much work or time. It comes naturally!

Speaking of One Piece, I got this painting of Roronoa Zoro some months ago for my birthday. I have no idea what to do with it… Help?
