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’m starting to read Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare and the famous line, “Et tu, Brute?” has me shaken.
The theme of betrayal happens all the time in literature and in anime too. Take the song Vogel im Käfig from Attack on Titan, for example. When I listen to the song, I feel anger, betrayal, sadness, disbelief and acceptance. The song plays during my favourite scene in the anime, the betrayal.
Quotes pop up on the loading screen of a game I’m playing. This quote in particular was very interesting. It was cool seeing a quote from a novel I own.
“If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.” – George Orwell, 1984
Don’t worry, my life is mundane. Every time I write about a serious topic like this, there are always a couple of people who ask me if I’m okay, or if there’s anything wrong. I do appreciate the concern, but you have to understand that I think a lot. I’m not blindly consuming content and not thinking about it afterwards! No, I think about the things I read and watch.

P.S. I’m learning how to skateboard. Balancing is not an issue but I need to practice turning.
I borrowed a few DS games from a friend. I played the first Ace Attorney game and finished the first case in 5-10 minutes! I’m not sure if it was just super easy or if I am just good. It’s probably just easy.
I am proud of myself. I took a full course load (five courses) and on top of that, did lab work as a Psych research assistant, held the title of Vice President Internal of an international psychology honours society, and mentored a child on a weekly basis. I woke up at 6 AM every Monday to Friday and one of my classes ended at 8 PM. That’s not what I’m really proud of, though. Lol. I have my final grades for all my courses this term and I didn’t get anything lower than an A-. I’m proud that I did well on top of all of those extracurricular activities. Some days I got four hours of sleep because I had to study. u_u

Remember my Bubble Tea review post? I would like to make a couple of changes! Firstly, Little Tea House in Metrotown – I did give it a poor review and I don’t regret it. I never sugar coat my reviews. HOWEVER — one of my close friends went there recently and said that the bubble tea taste improved a lot. They renovated the place and I think it’s worth giving a second chance! I know I’ll be going there again to see for myself.
Secondly… Big Orange in Metrotown – I didn’t talk about this bubble tea place much in that blog post so I’ll talk about it here. It used to be my favourite bubble tea place in Metrotown. Unfortunately, I had a poor experience there. The manager was highly unprofessional and I don’t see myself going there in the near future. Of course, this is only specific to the Metrotown location so I’ll still be going to their other franchise locations. You know me guys… I am generally pretty nice but I will say something if I feel like it. I do what I want on my blog!
Listening to: Abnormalize – Ling Tosite Sigure
I’m in a couple more polaroid photos but I don’t have good photos of them.
For my electives this term I’m taking Comics and Anime. I’m excited for Comics because I will have a chance to improve my sketching and have it actually count as homework. Anime class is good too because reading manga (ex. Ouran High School Host Club) is my homework! Plus, we will watch some anime films during class time like Kimi no Na Wa.
I also got the Kiki’s Delivery Service cosplay from my Secret Santa. ^^ I don’t have the Kimi no Na Wa bracelet/hair tie but I will still cosplay as Mitsuha one day. I’m still waiting for my eyeshadow to arrive so makeup for cosplays will have to wait.
Thanks to everyone who wished me luck on my search for strawberry water. I found it again, and bought 12 bottles, lol.
Listening to: BiSH – GiANT KiLLERS. My favourite girls idol group is BiSH (Brand-new idol SHiT).
I’ve been spending a lot of time with my family and it’s great. My mom treats me the best. ^^
Although, sometimes she is a little too nosy. I don’t like telling anyone the details of my personal life.
I took this selfie a few days ago.
I probably won’t draw for a while but I’ll repeat myself here since a few people have told me the same thing: to colour my drawings. No. I am focusing on sketching because I want to improve on that. Colouring also takes a long time. I don’t want to spend most of my time on drawing as it is just one of my many hobbies.
Hello guys, it’s past 12 AM now and I’m pleased to announce that I’m going on hibernation for 6 days! Well, it’s not really like hibernation at all but I basically just won’t go out of the house for 6 days haha. ><
I am very content and excited for this. I feel the most safe and comfortable in solitude. I am actually a very sociable person haha but recently it’s been taxing. I’ve been getting headaches too. ;__;
Oh yeah, I ordered an eyeshadow palette online because I decided to get back into makeup. The colour scheme is red velvet instead of brown because I like pinker shades more. ^^
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
