☆ anime/manga,  ☆ being a dork,  ☆ i heart japan,  ☆ life,  ☆ photos


Whee! I finished reading my friend Marie’s book, Bloody Annoyances. It was a very cute yaoi story (check my review on Goodreads), and I’m super-thrilled to be reading the unpublished second book, so that I can work on the cover. I’m going to be sketching out some ideas as I go through it today. I also want to work on Living Tall in Japan, which looks like it’s going to be published Mondays. I think that I’ll start out with a whole week, though! I’ll work on it this week after the cover illustration is done, and then start next week, I think! I’m so excited!!!!!

Maybe I should do something special….

My entire body hurts today. Yesterday’s Quidditch practice was especially brutal, but in a good way. I think that I really need to get in better shape. I’ve put on a lot of weight in the last three years (about 60 pounds). I can definitely tell, but my friends here say that I don’t look any different from my old photos. Mmmmm…. well, I’ll take my own body’s word for it, as nothing fits at all anymore, and I definitely can’t wear bikinis and look like a model. So it’s off to eat healthy and exercise like crazy, at least as much as I can afford to!

I’ve also started watching Yowamushi Pedal, which makes me feel really, really, reaaaaalllllllly nostalgic for when I was a huge, insane Tenipuri fan. Way before I ever worked for Konomi-sensei! I was a huge fan of Ryoma, and then Kevin. Which makes me think about the time that I cosplayed Oshitari. Oh, those were the days…. I wonder how many photos I have left (I lost them all in a crash, but found copies of some online later), let’s look…

Oh, found them! *inserts into post* I think that I’ll end with that for today! I really, really need to get to work. It wouldn’t hurt to exercise for a little bit. Since I don’t have a car yet, riding my bike to the grocery store would work! *zoom*!

    You looked so cool as Oshitari! <3

    Walking or riding a bike to the grocery store is a great way to exercise, especially 'cause there's no way to skip it or get lazy, you NEED to get groceries once in a while. =P It's been the majority of my exercise for the past 5 years or so.

      Thanks!! And yeah, it’s fun riding my bike (except for the walk up the hill after!).. I do wish that the sun wasn’t so harsh, though! It is just so bright here, it really beats down on you, and no matter how much sunscreen I put on, I keep tanning. ToT
