My Life Revolves Around School and Manga For The Moment

April seems to be a dead month for me when it comes to blogging O_O even when it comes to blogging about nothing like how I usually do it didn't work lol. This month and next month are going to be extremely hectic since finals are coming along and all my presentations and papers are going to be due ;__; Ugh, I hate presentations...I will never like them. But anyways, so that is all I have been doing is working on my school work. BUT, I have been re-reading Fushigi Yuugi: Genbu Kaiden again since the author Yuu Watase came back from her hiatus after 2 years ( ; A ; ) You guys have no idea how happy this makes me, my friend told me she gave up a long time ago. I had faith and waited patiently and she began writing the story again ;w; I can only hope the same thing happens for NANA TT-TT That is a whole other story though...

I have been tweeting about it like crazy and have been doing manga edits and gifs. I always forget how much I like something until it comes back into my life lol. Mangas make me so goddamn emotional though. If you were in my room while I was reading a manga you would probably be like "WTF..." I am either fangirling, tearing up, or yelling at the characters in the story xD Lol, it's seriously like the crap you see in movies. Re-reading Genbu Kaiden made me realize I want to re-watch the regular Fushigi Yuugi once summer hits. I don't know how many times I have watched that anime but it's one of my favorites. My favorite mangakas are Ai Yazawa and Yuu Watase. I  have more but these are the ones where I would go out and buy all the volumes of multiple series they wrote and they were probably the first few mangas I was exposed to. So they have a special place in my heart<3

Well that's it for now! Until next time~
BTW the gif above is a gif that I made from Genbu Kaiden, it was so hard to decide which manga cap to put on this post so I settled with the gif. Uruki ;____;

Throwback: Meeting Victor Kim @ the LA County Fair

So I wasn't sure if I wanted to post these pictures because they are quite old, and they aren't good quality since at the time I didn't have a camera and I was using my younger sister's. But, I decided to post them because these bring back happy memories :] This was the first time I met Victor Kim. The photos had a watermark of the date which was 9.26.10 (that is why some of them are going to be cropped lol). Victor Kim isn't all that well known, so if you don't know who he is don't feel bad. He is a singer, dancer, and a bit YouTube famous. I didn't know Victor through his dancing when I first saw him on YouTube, which is what he is mostly known for. His dance crew won one of the season's of ABDC: America's Best Dance Crew. I stumbled across his YouTube page when Ryan Higa linked him on one of his videos. Now, if you don't know Ryan you are missing out. He is freakin' hilarious. Well anyways, back on to the subject of Victor...I fell in love with his voice and then found out he was in a dance crew. So, that is how I came to be fan.

So, I'll admit it, I had a bit of a crush on him. He plays the guitar, ukulele, piano, sings, dances, and does art.  Can you say talented?? Haha, and not to mention he went to the university I want to go to which is UCI. At the time he had a girlfriend though so I didn't think much of him besides being his fan. It was awesome to see him and Quest Crew perform. I was lucky that I got to see them because they were performing at the LA County Fair for Asian History month or something? There was also a meet and greet afterwards and it was very nice and intimate. I asked Victor to sign a frame that I was going to put our picture in. (I didn't post the picture of us because I look hideous lol) I also told him how I was trying to get into UCI and he told me good luck and such and smiled. He was so nice. It's so hard to explain, if you met him in person you can feel how genuine and kind he is. They signed anything and multiple things as well.

I had actually met him before the meet and greet where we took a picture on my phone (which that picture is forever lost because I lost my phone T-T) and where he signed my shoe ^-^ haha. Then he signed the frame and photo of Quest they were selling. Needless to say it was one of the happiest times of my life lol xD It was the first time I met Victor :] He told me to post the picture of the frame with out picture on his Facebook because he wanted to see it. So when I got home I hurried and did that shit xD He added me the next day on his personal Facebook :D I was super happy and honored lol. At first I thought it was fake and was going to deny it xD Holy crap good thing I didn't. After I added him he liked the picture. I freaked out obviously~ lol I am so lame. 

I met him two times after that. The second was when he was singing at a school in LA and the third when he was at UCR with Quest Crew again. The third time I met him again he asked why he hadn't been seeing me. But at that time he was doing stuff in other states -__-" lol. Well the point of this is that Victor is a really awesome person and is really cool to his fans. He has been doing all kinds of stuff lately like making his own shoes and his own personalized ukulele. He is also doing other stuff with other well known YouTubers. I am super proud of him :] I haven't been seeing him much lately or at all to be honest lol. But I will always support him and be his fan ^-^ 

Lol, I guess this was a pointless post about me reminiscing and talking about what Victor means to me haha. Oh well~ I always have those occasional random posts of me reminiscing. I need to put these thoughts/memories somewhere before they leave my mind! lol
