Short Hiatus

By the time you’re reading this post, there is a chance my computer will have been dismantled and shipped home. I was supposed to finish my stint in Japan at the end of August, but was screwed over and made to stay for longer because some people wield a lot of power is all I can say in a remotely professional capacity.

In any case, I’m biding my time until I can go back home for good, and until I can get my stuff sorted out back home I’ll have to go on a brief unspecified hiatus. At the very least, expect to see me get back into some modeling madness once I reunite with my beloved airbrush after 3 years.

In the meantime I might think of some things about my stint to write, though a lot of stuff is probably already covered by people out there.

Liebster Award

In a rare occurrence I have been tagged in one of those meme-ish things to pass on, so here goes!


Thanks to the wonderful Logan/Carnitas Fever at My Life in Scale for nominating my blog for this award thing. It’s supposed to help your blog gain visibility.

The rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and include a link back to them.
  • Answer the questions given to you.
  • Nominate bloggers and present them with questions of your own.

Most likely voluntary, and even if it isn’t no one can enforce it 😉 I’ll be answering the following questions.

μ’s Final LoveLive! Live Viewing

2016-04-01 21.32.14

This post is one week late but yeah. I got into Love Live in autumn last year and never watched any of their concerts live until their final one on April 1st where I managed to get a ticket to a live viewing at a cinema near my place.

Watching the concert inside a theatre with Japanese fans was interesting as most if not all of them were waving light sticks, but I didn’t have any. At the end there were quite a few people crying too.

Golden Week 2015 Part 1: Gunma

I haven’t used the “life” category on my blog much, as it probably suggests I don’t have much of one, ha ha. Anyway I decided to take a break from the usual reviews and write about a trip I took during this year’s Golden Week long vacation before I forget the details.

Holy Grail Get

2014-11-30 19.33.52

Following this post in which I mentioned I managed to get in a preorder at HLJ, they dropped the ball and being the desperate idiot that I was, I went to buy one off Amazon instead.

Life has been pretty topsy-turvy since I moved to Fukuoka. There isn’t any internet in my dorm room and I had to rent a pocket wi-fi dongle. It doesn’t have great reception but it doesn’t have a data cap and has kept me sane this past month while I wait for the cable guys to come and install the necessary infrastructure so that I can have some proper internet. Also, I’ve been made to do shift work for about a month as part of my training program. I’m not exactly doing any work but it’s still making my body clock a mess, and things like weekends don’t apply to me for now.

I’ll try to do up a review as soon as I’m free. I usually post on Sundays, like today, but I’m leaving for work soon – doing the night shift tonight.

It’s been a year…

…since I’ve moved here. Again it’s another review-less week, and I thought I’d do an introspective post instead. I actually had a draft somewhere which I never published because it was too messy, but I’ll try to tidy things up. As long-time readers of this blog would be aware, I have been living in Japan for a year now. Instead of blogging as usual, I went on a six-month hiatus after moving here where I lived a rather simple life without writing about it or about toys in general. However when asked about my impressions of life here I found it hard to collect my thoughts as I never wrote anything about it.
