A lantern in the dark

The precious things you discover in life, are like stars in the night sky.

There are countless numbers of stars, and all of them may seem far away. They glitter and twinkle, reminding you of old memories, precious friends, delicious encounters, and the beautiful things in the world.

Sometimes you may forget about them, as you deal with one crisis or another, a meteor shower or a solar eclipse.

But when the night sky is the darkest, and there seems to be no lights on earth, you can always look to the sky and be amazed at how bright it shines for you.

Heartwarming gifts

I love presents. I'm not sure if there's anyone who doesn't.

I really enjoy getting adorable things, treats, candies, things that aren't intended to last very long.

Just the thought that someone cares for you enough that they wanted to make your day a little bit more special is enough to continue fighting. ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

The easy way out

I once comforted a friend who had a deep friendship broken off by text message. At the time I thought that was the most cowardly way to end something.

But I think now that silently running from problems is probably the biggest disservice you can do to your self and others.

Because life is filled with things that are hard, and people who won't make everything easier for you.
And you can sit and fume and feel jealous of people who seem to be better off than you, but giving up before you do anything isn't going to solve anything.

And you can easily make excuses for why nothing seems to go your way, but in the end but I think it comes down to this.

Happy Breakfast

There are many things one needs to survive, food, shelter, a sense of safety.

In modern life, most of us clear these hurdles in ways that don't seem very perfect or ideal.

And while it's enough for us to physically survive, something inside still searches for the calories that our soul craves, that make our day sparkle with unscientific feelings.

I'm not very fond of beer...

But a lot of stylish or funny beer cans make me wish I did. ヾ(*´ー`)ノ

Hidden Side Streets

The side paths to adventure are sometimes in the most hum-drum of places, and it's easy to forget that even the most normal of streets are filled with brooding history.

This side street leads away and from Waseda University. The main street is filled with college students, heading towards the main gate.

The street itself is very muted. There are some trees, and some pedestrians. In the distance you can see a row of apartment buildings, planting their roots among the twisty streets.

But this street contains a house that has some surprising history.

This road leads to Edogawa Rampo's house.

Mocha ☆ Adventures

I recently went to Canadia, as Vancouver was having their 3rd Annual Hot Chocolate Festival. ヽ(*・ω・)ノ

I'm a really big fan of Shirokuma Cafe, so I was really interested in #15 – SHIROKUMA.
The set was a collaboration between Blenz + Cocolico. A mug of white hot chocolate and green tea came with three piece set of chocos. o((*^▽^*))o

The choco trio was a bar of White Chocolate with Caramelized Cocoa Nib Praline, a Milk Chocolate with Salted Toffee Hazelnut, and Dark Chocolate with Almond, Apricot & Violet.
The dark chocolate was probably my favorite, as I'm more fond of bitter-sweet things. Ψ(´▽`)Ψ

I think the concept of the drink was adorable, as Shirokuma-san is a Canadian polar bear who runs an organic cafe in Japan. I happen to be a big fan of the series!
It was unfortunate that the drink was not especially delicious. It wasn't a bad drink, but I think the macha flavor was fairly weak, and it tasted more like sweet milk than anything.

I did have a lot of fun with my Canadian friends, and I'm looking forward to visiting again soon! ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

Bouncing Wavelengths

I'm so sorry for being slow with updates lately! But to make up for it I'll answer a bunch of questions this week☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

Q. Are you ok with fan covers, amv's or remixes? I'd like to do something but I don't want to offend.

A. It's no offence at all! If anything, I'm really flattered by any fan productions of my material!  I'm especially am fond of remixes and arrangements~  (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

The only thing I ask is that remixes of Karl and my work not be sold without asking us. ヾ(*´ー`)ノ
Otherwise I'm super excited to see what people come up with!

When things don't seem to go your way, and you wake up in the mornings feeling pretty terrible, it might be hard to remind yourself of the things you enjoy.

I think I'm lucky that I was born with a hunger to sing, to make music. I just can't imagine what I'd do with myself otherwise.

Oh, and also this frog donut is pretty deliciously cute. Ψ(´▽`)Ψ

Full of Dreams

Everyone has an invisible stomach.

What satisfies it is different for everyone, but we will all shrivel up and die if it goes unfilled.

I like cute things. Sparkles and frills and animal parfaits and pink and white and brown lovely candy shaped raburii things make my hear go all doki doki. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) ♫・*:.。. .。.:*・

I like bright, brash colors and weird designs and bat shaped hair and a closet full of yellow clothes, stripes and hot pants with tights and ridiculous fur collar cardigans and dressing like a child's idea of what grown ups dress like.  Ψ(´▽`)Ψ

I like pirates and adventures and badass beat downs and idoru battles and hunting down ancient Chinese warriors and showing them who is boss and uniting old-school Japan except apparently Hokkaido while cackling and riding around in my floating car.   (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

I love a lot of things.
And while I often feel like I'm told to grow the fuck up by the rest of the world who's stomach doesn't hunger for the same things as mine, I'm still going to go down that escalator and jump around in that Thousand Sunny bouncy house.

Well, I would have if the security guard hadn't told me that they're closing for the day.

Running Downhill

Life is never as clear cut as a song.
There's never an catchy chorus to hum along to, there are never any clear words.

Time seems to crawl by day by day, and yet it speeds past you like a sudden wind, or a melody that you can't quite remember.

And as you grow older, you learn to trust people less, you learn to hold your emotions much closer to your self, and you see the days gone by as being always brighter in your memories than they ever seemed before.

I don't know if I would do anything differently if I had the chance.

But a part of me will always be that kid running down that hill, blind to what the future will bring.

Giri Giri Choco

I am happier to get Giri choco than Honmei choco.

Honmei choco says, my love is yours right now, I have doki doki feelings for you and I hope you feel the same. ヽ(愛´∀`愛)ノ

Giri choco says, hey, we bros, I suppose I'll give you choco. You might get someone's Honmei next year, but if you don't, I guess I'll give you Giri choco next year too. And the year after that. And the year after that.

So cheer up bro, you'll always have my Giri choco.





Did I mention? I like Udon better than Ramen.

Listless feelings.

When life seems to throw everything at you at once, you just have to take it step by step.

It's easy to say, but if you aren't careful, you might try to hold on to everything, and end up dropping things that you would have other wise been able to handle.

It's hard to keep in mind the things that are the most important to you, because happiness is a very worrisome thing.

Chasing after it is always more enjoyable than grasping it in your hands, and the flood of stresses that come with getting what you wanted.

Just be sure not to flinch when you have it in your hand.

A Glorious Breakfast.

Sometimes the best memories aren't only of victories and accomplishments.

Sometimes, it's as simple as adventurous meals shared with friends.

I happen to be very wary of new foods, but the delicious taste of victory with every new  adventure reminds me to not be so picky.

After all, if we were afraid of every thing new, we would never make friends or make wonderful discoveries. (❁´◡`❁)*✲゚*

The shape of our love

Diver City is a pretty nerdy place to begin with. It's got the Gundam museum and cafe, maid cafes, and a giant 1/1 Gundam in it's back yard.

It also happens to be a very trendy shopping mall area, with this in front for the One Piece Z movie.

I think it speaks volumes that the hobbies we love that we used to have to hide away, are things that we don't have to hide any longer.

Final Distance

Not all goodbyes are forever.

Sometimes goodbye is just a gateway to another adventure, to more beginnings and to more social links.

But even if we're far apart, we still have our memories, the things we laughed at, all our silly little jokes.

So don't look back when you depart, as you're not leaving a comfortable past behind you, but stepping in to the brilliant future.

I am not particularly fond of cat things, but look at this donut! How can you resist it's lovely gaze? (_´ω`)

Now the only question remaining is whether to eat it it from the head portion with much glee, or to nibble at it so it's cute face is last to meet it's fate. ψ(`∇´)ψ

What is the shape of your soul?

Frozen yogurt with popping boba is ridiculous  It's ridiculous  and it make no sense to why it's so delicious.  (ી(΄◞ิ౪◟ิ‵)ʃ)♥

There's something satisfying about making yogurt in the shape and flavors that might be ridiculous. (ΦωΦ)

Who is going to tell you that you can't have gummi bears and coffee beans? No one!
What is going to stop you from mixing bananas and boba? Nothing!  (。 >艸<)

Being Good

It's disappointing to find out that you're not as important to other people as you thought you were.

Where they draw the line of being polite and being dishonest is different for everyone.
And these invisible lines are often more complex than you'd think that they need to be.

But at least ramen will always be simple and delicious.

Busy Busy Busy

There is so much to be done, and so little time to do it in. ( ;´Д`)

I think they we all wish that major signs of change would come in nice, manageable waves, allowing us to ruminate and come to the most logical and wise decisions.

I don't know if it's just my timing, but lately it seems that a large multitude of options have come crashing down on me.  (;° ロ°)

It never seems to be one or two things with me, it always seems that big decisions, big changes, big movements are shaking my web, and that I seem to be looking down at a pair of destiny's trousers that seem more fitting for octopi than for people. 。:゚*+;(●´・д・`●);+*゚:。

Let's hope I choose the right path.

This is Alcohol.

Breakfast today was coffee and waffles. (●⌒∇⌒●)

Today is a cloudy and a little drizzly. I feel like curling up with a book and being lazy, but I've got a long list of quests today to get done.

I've been re-reading the City Watch series lately. but Ankh-Morpork will just have to wait until I've been a productive adult for the day. ┗┃・ ■ ・┃┛

January wasn't the best of months, and the first few days of February haven't been so good so far, but the world that gives us things like alcoholic Calpis can't be that bad, right? ヽ(*・ω・)ノ

Sorry you feel bad, have some cupcakes.

I believe that people is come with default settings to be terrible beings, and that people will never truly understand one another, as we are all separate constellations in the sky.

But that's why it's important to appreciate those who try to understand us, knowing it's impossible to ever occupy the same place.

And while we are far off planets to each other, sometimes, just a little, our orbits can bring us closer.
