Life This Month 55 – July 2016

Here I am at the end of another month. A lot of things felt like they happened so long ago, and yet, I am also astounded that more than half of this year is already gone. I enjoyed and finished a number of things this month. Still, there is so much left to do. I must keep moving forward. Continue Reading

七月の購入物 July Loots – 2016

This month, I had just a single package. This package is my last order from AmiAmi. As of the time of writing, I have no pre-orders waiting on AmiAmi, or any other online stores for that matter. For years, I have been keeping my monthly expenses low by purchasing mostly manga with the occasional figure here and there. Looking at just the first half of this year, I can tell that 2016 was and will continue to be a desperate time.

Working!!仕様の痛車に遭遇! Working!! Themed Itasha Encounter (2012)

During my time abroad in Japan in 2012, I happened to come across a parked itasha themed after Working!!. Of course, I had to stop and take the time to shoot some photos. While taking the photos, a man walked up to me and suddenly said “写真は撮ってもいいですが、場所だけは公開しないでください”. Without time to think, I immediately answered ” はい” and the man walked away. I don’t know if that man was the owner of the car or if he was the person commissioned to customize the car for a client. In any case, I wasn’t discouraged from taking photos, so I proceeded to go crazy with my camera and got a good look at the itasha from every corner.

Now, I don’t know much at all about cars, so I don’t have any more to say. Please enjoy the photos.

月食(2015年9月27日) Lunar Eclipse – September 27th, 2015

During last year’s lunar eclipse, my zoomable 18~55mm lens was damaged and I had to make do with my fixed 35mm lens. This time around, I have a new 55~200mm zoom lens to play with.

This Lunar Eclipse took place on the evening of the 27th where I was at, in the Bay Area of California. The photo above was exactly how my camera captured the scene, without any post-editing. Continue Reading

「Blue Moon」 – July 22nd, 2013

On this night, I journeyed in solitude under the shroud of silence.

Neglect, betrayal, hatred. A blue moon surrounded by darkness.

But I saw the light. It was beautiful.

But there was no one to praise my fight.
I had only just this blue moon light.

茶の菓 Cha no Ka (Tea Flavored Sweets)

My study abroad in Aichi Prefecture in the summer of 2014 was where I met my friend Corvus. It was not my first time in Japan and I told him about my previous study abroad in Kyoto. About a year later, Corvus also enrolled into that same Kyoto Spring program and he bought me this box of tea flavored sweets as a souvenir. Continue Reading!

Departure from Japan – June 20th, 2012

I have spent 85 full days of my life in Japan. That is just a week shy of 3 full months in Japan. But now, it is time for me to leave. This trip to Japan was my first and it has given me a lot to think about. It will take time for me to really process the events on this trip and to see how my life might change from all this.

In the late-afternoon, the Japanese family that I was staying with drove me to Haneda airport. I am really thankful because it saved me a lot of trouble with all of my luggage and way-finding. The scene above was taken as we were driving on the highway. I will miss this beautiful country.

Life This Month 54 – June 2016

For most of June, I spent my time updating the blog and writing new posts. In order for me to move forward in my hobby life and upload new content, I must finish the entire backlog of photos I have accumulated over the past few years. Look forward to new updates coming soon. As for what I did besides staring at the monitor:

On the 1st of this month, I played some SAO:Lost Song. I reached what appears to be the last dungeon and the climax of the story? I can’t help but feel this disconnect of immersion when during cutscenes, the characters talks of challenge and adversity but then the gameplay was really easy. In fact, there wasn’t even much monsters to begin with. Anyways, I fought a duel and Rain told us her secret. I also proceeded with Yuuki’s character events and unlocked her unique sword skill, Mother’s Rosario. Awesome that they have that sword skill in this game. Continue Reading
