So I’ve been wanting to blog more but the hard part was not knowing what to blog about. Then a memory randomly resurfaced. I distinctly remembered being interested in a blogging challenge back in June 2018. Well, better late than never… right?
The blogging challenge is the 15 Days of Death Note Challenge by Ryuugi’s Tatsuya’s Anime Corner. Blogging for 15 days in a row is a little ambitious for me but I’ll try. I’ll start today.
In other news, Moya has been sending me nightly reminders to sleep on time. I’m not joking.
I’ve been using Moya’s service for three days now. She is timely, consistent, and professional. Oh, and her sleep facts are great.
I thought I would write a little update because quite a few people have asked how I’ve been. Mostly everyone I know is staying at home.
I’ve been at home for… around 9 days now. Staying home doesn’t bother me because I’ve always preferred staying at home. I’ve always hated hot weather, the rain, the snow, exercising, waiting for the bus, loud sounds, the list goes on… Right now isn’t so different from my old life. I’m used to it.
I’ve been pretty busy finishing practicum and my course. I just need to put in one more day of work to finish my last course of my degree! I’ve also been working from home.
In my spare time, I’ve been watching anime and dramas, cosplaying, playing games on my PS Vita, drawing, listening to music, watching YouTube videos, and reading manga, webtoons and fan fiction. Not much has changed from before…
I would have liked to admire the cherry blossoms and drink bubble tea with my friends. I miss bubble tea a lot. There are more important issues in the world though.
A little update: Starting today, I will be staying at home. The university has instructed us to stop going to our practicum sites and to do the work at home. The class will also be done remotely. This was after Justin Trudeau’s announcement, in which he recommended that everyone stay at home.
I’m not sure if I ever wrote this, but I have a number of jobs. Most of them are done from home to begin with, so I’m used to it. Still, I wonder what these next few weeks will look like… O_O
During these uncertain moments, sometimes we just want to escape from reality for a little while and watch something to distract ourselves. I’m not in the mood to watch something twisted because it reminds me of society too much (hahaha) so these are shows that will help calm you down! In my last blog post, I wrote about songs that inspire hope during this challenging time.
Mushi-shi is perfect for when you need to unwind. It makes you feel so calm. The opening song, Shiver by Lucy Rose, is in English and it is such a beautiful song. The colours of the show are so calming to look at. Every episode is its own short story with new characters. I highly recommend this anime.
If you like Mushi-shi, you’ll also like Natsume’s Book of Friends (and vice versa).
The Case Files of Jeweler Richard
This is an anime from this season. This show is pretty interesting because you learn about different gemstones. For example, I didn’t know that there was a fascinating stone called the Cat’s Eye until I watched the show.
My Roommate is a Cat
In this anime, Subaru Mikazuki, an introverted writer, changes in small ways. Haru is such an adorable cat. The latter half of the episodes are retold from Haru’s point of view.
All of these pictures were posted on my Instagram, but I thought I would post them in a blog format.
Can’t wait to read this book~
Katsu with soba~
My first Kaiji thing. It’s pretty much impossible to find anything from this anime in Canada… Thank you to my friend for the belated birthday gift! Those who watched Kaiji Season 2 will know about the dice… The ざわざわ wrapping paper OMG
Bought this Totoro mug cover
Picked this up yesterday at the store
Shungiku Nakamura is one of my favourite mangaka ^^
Matcha ice cream
Should I keep doing this kind of monthly update? Let me know. x)
What’s up? I’ve been working on a Shield Hero post but I’ll publish it once the series is complete. I have one more week of summer school and then I will have more time to blog and cosplay! I hope everyone is doing well!
I’m watching seven shows from this season so… the Spring 2019 Anime First Impressions post will be up within the next few days. Sorry for the delay.
I’ve been busy these past few weeks. I’ve been studying for finals and working on final assignments for uni. The thing is, I’ve been working four days a week and went to practicum two days a week. I also interviewed for a research assistant job. It’s kind of tiring to write papers after an eight-hour work day…
The good news? I finished my practicum hours yesterday and I got the job I interviewed for. Now I have two jobs. I still have a final exam and an assignment to finish, but I’m excited for future cosplays and blog posts. I have a list of cosplays and blog posts I want to write.
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…
