No. This is not a farewell to whatever post, ok. Just to keep it clear.
I’ve been out for a while yet again. Life had a whirlwind of surprises in store for me so far. In a way that it made me very preoccupied – Family, Work, Anime and MMORPG! If I could only have more time within the day.
But given with the life’s hullabaloos, it is important that you stop and smell the roses, and be grateful for the things you have. Like this!
L-R: Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, Hello Kitty Chopsticks, Shiseido Blotting Strips and Cheesecake Flavored Kitkat
Thank you to my superior for the goodies from Japan! ありがとうございます。I really appreciate this. How I wish I could go there someday!
NOTE TO READER: This is another text heavy post. This is not a review post. Should you want to see some reviews,feel free to check out the other posts.
How silly fate can be. Imagine, my friends and I were out in the mall after work to unwind and we bumped into one of the heads of the department in Bobbi Brown. This silly experience led me to ask for my superior to if she could get me Shu Uemura’s famous eyelash curler. She was nice enough to ask us if we’d want anything from Japan before she left, so I took her word for it. 😀 I won’t go in details to this one. Will blog this one when I get a chance to. (NOT AGAIN! IT WILL TAKE YOU FOREVER, HARU-CHAN!!!)
So what had been keeping me away from blogging lately? I can chop it into 4 things.
FAMILY. It is as if I woke up one day and say, “Oh wow. Time must have flew by. Things are not as it is now.” It’s as if I spent all these years investing my time in the wrong basket. My mom would scold me, “You always go home late!” It’s not yet too late for me! I can still catch up! And I am catching up now.
WORK. A lot of opportunities for me suddenly opened up all of a sudden. One move changed my work life for the better. Everything seemed so lighter, happier, less tensed and stressful. This is good. I feel like I am suddenly being recognized after all this time I had been in the shadows. I never placed myself into the limelight since I was rooting for something, just because I thought it was the right thing to do. Oh and I am so wrong. I’m still on the road to recovery, but I feel better. I know darn well that I am in a better position now than I was 4-5 months ago. Before, I felt like I was really dumb, worthless and I was in a dark place. But now, all good! わたしは とても しあわせ です。 / 私は とても 幸せ です。
ANIME. I’ve been watching a lot of anime lately. More than I did around last year. It’s inspiring me to write, draw and even compose a song! So this is all good. I’ve always dreamed of become a writer of a manga. Now, a composer too! Hmm… I’ve been thinking of playing the piano a lot lately. I want to learn Knocking in my Mind and Brand New Melody (thanks to Uta Pri!) and, Liberi Fatali.
MMORPG. Guild Wars 2, to be specific. I’ve been leveling my new character (after 2 years of having 1 character!). I just turned 80 (max level so far in GW2) last Sunday. My first character is a Mesmer. I now have an Engineer! Hmm… To purchase those nice equips and weapons… I’m also computing for a good build for my Engineer.
Don’t worry, there would be a 5th category there soon. ARTIST. Not only in writing (light novel, manga and blog) and a little of drawing, but composing as well. I somewhat see myself in a long train ride, looking outside the window and writing/typing/drawing/composing away. I want to learn Nihongo too!!!!!!!
I hope I could keep all of this up this year and beyond! Wish me luck! 頑張ろう
