Liebster Award Nomination


I was nominated by Tukusigal for the Liebster Award, which after a bit of searching I discovered means something like “Favorite”–it’s an award for up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers in a “pass-it-on” format. (So it’s actually more of a tag! Lol) Thank you very much for the nomination!! (●´∀`●)

I don’t usually do tags… But let’s try! (ง •̀_•́)ง

11 Random Facts About Myself

1) Unexpectedly, I dislike watermelon…! Continue reading

I was moved.

I was looking through a handwritten diary about things related to learning Japanese that I’ve been occasionally writing in, and seeing things like “I reached _ level on WaniKani today” and “I didn’t do _ today, but I’ll try my best tomorrow” moved me somehow.

The first entry is from July 2011. Actually, it was not long after I had come back from China.

A lot has changed since then.

I’m thankful. I’ve learned a lot in general. I know I still have a lot to learn, but the fact that I’ve already come this far despite struggles proves that I can keep going. It’s true for AIS, for Japanese, for my art, my writing, myself… So even though I don’t really know what will come, I’m looking forward to facing it with everyone. ♡

New Look!

I’ve wanted to update the theme of my blog for a while, but just couldn’t decide on one. Yesterday, I came across one called Kubrick, and after viewing my blog in the preview, I decided I liked it enough to use it! So today I made the switch. ^o^

I’m going to make several headers with the blog name and tagline in them so that the text won’t be awkwardly sitting in the center like it is right now… Maybe something in the background as well…

Also, I have updated several of my pages, which are no longer at the top of my blog but are now in the sidebar near the top. ->
Please have a look if you like. 🙂

Rambling xP

Today didn’t get off to such a good start; I had difficulty getting to sleep last night and therefore slept later today. Because of that, I was sleepy all morning and had a small headache until late afternoon. -A-

But I’m all better now! I’m just saying this before I go to bed.
I need to write something on Lang-8 too, but… I’ll leave that for tomorrow, I guess. I can talk about my guitar lesson or something.

Yes! My brother and I are taking guitar lessons now. Yaaay~

I have to finish up my second AIS assignment tomorrow and send it off. I got a letter in the mail today; they are basically looking for it in the mail so I need to hurry up and finish it. It’s mostly done!

Bah, sometimes I feel really busy and sometimes I feel like everything is lined up and under control. XD I’m just leaving it all to God!
I am looking forward to crossing more things off my to-do list. It’s rewarding to know that you’ve accomplished what you set out to do. 🙂

Forum Re-purpose?

My Mahou no Ichigo forum was originally created so that I could stay in contact with my friends from school after my parents got divorced and we moved to a location with very poor cell phone reception. Needless to say, that plan didn’t work too well. The forum is decidedly dead, even after I opened it up to everyone else (my online friends and then some).

I tried to make it a general forum where people could come and talk about lots of things rather than just a specific fandom or genre. But that didn’t really work either.

Now I’m thinking I should just re-purpose it altogether into a “character bag” forum. That’s really all I’m using it for…each thread is for a different character, and each user has a separate board that holds characters. There are also other boards for roleplay, commissions, and general talk. Ideas and opinions on this would be welcome. Oh, and you’re welcome to join, too. xP
