luv.giffavorite games/media of the month.... do I need to say more? I started playing klonoa same evening it was released ^p^;; I am sooo stoked to easily play klonoa 2 again since the emulated version was so bad.. 

my baby lolo 16.gif 16.gif  love leo too

I'm so happy to see DTP as well, but I'll always prefer the original PS1 version because the graphics contribute significantly to the feeling! particularly when the moon kingdom rises and ESPECIALLY the ending omg-- 

whether phantasy reverie extremely well or not, I am SO thankful to see my two favorite games modern ports and that's that :-)

original lephise has an sweetness that can't be replicated..mini112.gif

the thoughtfulness in female figure designs 16.gif

ok let's talk the anime I ended up binging again- mini-159.gif

galaxy angel, like di gi charat (also BROCCOLI-published) is an episodic show that doesn't take itself too seriously LOL- all-girl **NOT HAREM** comedy animes are my favorite genre.. it pretty much just follows the angel brigade's jobs in space 

I wanted to watch it again because I was looking at a character I made as a kid that copied Mint's ears..

milfeulle soo dramatic I luv it.. also the funeral episode is the best Ksfdkjfdskjfdskjfsd

luv.giftop 3 songs this month.. 

noriko had to have been one of the coolest kids to exist, and I love this concept coined by her:
[“happy handbag music” — that is, fashionable dance music that suits those dancing with a handbag.]

Laila France's "Trance Cocktail Airlines" - not sure why but this song makes me think of an old Norwegian group I like called "Ephemera" (example of their stuff)! very cute and summer

St. Etienne's "Carn't Sleep" - this group is always so great.. ALSO love "Spring" 

other stuff I've been up to is GoToWorkGoToWorkGoToWork- here's some small fun random life things though:

JUNE faves..

JUNE IS OVER.. I'd like to start keeping a log of my "favorite things" for each month!! starting with this month-- tumblr_inline_mxkdh43gYJ1qk1or3540.gifstar.gif

luv.gif favorite outfit of the month.. :-) I randomly bought a vintage ECKO UNTLD hoodie because I saw Marc Ecko featured on ANTM (ya I'm still watching that trash show < 3 ), and orange is a hoodie color I really wanted.. my skirt is Jean Paul Gaultier (FEMME line), my very comfortable shoes are KEEN Zerraports II, and my tote bag is 20471120. I just really like baggier silhouettes and midi-length skirts lately, and my hoodie is very nostalgic for a reason I'll state below..

eckozz.jpg jenstank.png

jen bought me this My Melody squishmallow..

I kinda wanna buy the 16"-20" sea creature ones now LOL

ECKO UNLTD always brings me back to this PS1 demo disc 

commercial I played all the time.. My sibling looked 

at my hoodie & recalled it too :-) important memory-

luv.gif favorite game/media of the month.. been playing Audition daily until I'm fully caught up with my work.. as a mediocre rhythm game fanatic, this game is actually quite hard X^P it's ded but fun so who cares !!!! I am also playing STEPMANIA a lot lately LOL trying to ween off osu! as my quick-game-fix bc it sux..

thxaudition.png 3df00037b290b9f5a5da829b674fc1d4.png

my gal.. isn't she cute :-J Orange head tumblr_inline_mxkdhrFkgS1qk1or3540.giftumblr_inline_mxkdhrFkgS1qk1or3540.gif

also made Mao-- wearing avatar-game Chrome Hearts 



luv.gif top 3 songs of the month.. 

Andy Lee's "Anemia" - found this song in a STEPMANIA song pack LOL and it's apparently from a Korean rhythm game franchise called EZ2DJ.. This song oddly reminds me a lot of Parasite Eve, particularly the end game song "Somnia Memorias" which is a fave! 

Fiona Apple's "First Taste" - SO catchy and accurately describes crushing.. close second fave on this album is "Slow Like Honey"

WATCHMAN's "Forestix" - I mean I've kinda been obsessed with WATCHMAN's projects in general this year ^p^ but this song in particular currently has been looped a lot.. very dreamy, and the segment toward the end feels satisfying to reach after mostly noise.. btw go buy his stuff

That's all for now >:- D Until next month! tumblr_inline_p6m7sonWJE1rhwzwl_540.gif


me & my irl friend like running around Trader Joes lately and this was drawn on the board when we went recently.. Pikachu eating Trader Joe's Brand Lemon Baton Wafer Cookies

save Ness from his suffering.. woof.gifwoof.gif 

so ya, I made and mailed these cookies.. I have a newfound respect for pro bakers because it took ALL DAY LOL bc squeezing that piping for hours was hard work.. I also shed tears every time I had to mix a new icing color kdfskjfs I am a weakling but it was genuinely so fun X^D

besides us and our lil mascots, I also made Ness and Paula because Earthbound is his favorite game which he's played for me ^ 3 ^ and I wanted to match them with my real gift I got for him HEHEHE >:-) (pic of them below..) star.gif

Hobonichi released these a few months ago (limited run)! 
I wish we used planners cus their MOTHER ones are cute..

we had a fun day and I am so happy and thankful to call him my partner ^o^ we still need to finish MOTHER 3.. and I personally want to play the first game since I've always been curious about it! eventually.? ANYWAY that's all!! until my next entry! starp.gif

for what it's worth I think the cookies look liek 
us LMFAO based on this recent pic


Long time no blog.. so, the last time I made a blog post was after I graduated highschool! and literally 8 years passed since then LOL.. it's actually so crazy to think ^p^ IT'S SO LONG ???? wtf

reuniting with Jen and Crystal (my best and oldest friends) and not touching art for a week straight made me think a lot about the past, and how much of a workaholic I have become @_@ in particular, we made cute little memory books together and it reminded me about my leisurely blogging.. SO HERE I AM time to talk about my first Disneyworld trip >:-D


ok firstly me n Jen got the cutest cookies.. 

they tasted kinda like poptarts? KDSFJKSFD

pics below of it and WAFFLE 


strawbcookie.jpg effinggoodwaffle.jpg

SO let's talk rides.. Expedition Everest in particular was my favorite "fast" ride bc LMFAO it freaked me out the most when it started to go backwards..!! my favorite slower one was probably DINOSAUR 🦖 .. uh we played the movie in our airbnb for like 5 min n I got reminded how much I did Not want to actually rewatch it


Crystal rode all the scary things w/ me LMFAO

honorable ride mentions include:

  •  star.gif Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway (modern rides are dang cool) 
  • star.gif it's a small world (PRECIOUS) 
  • star.gif Space Mountain (FAST) 
  • star.gif Rock'n Rollarcoaster (AMAZING but kinda wish it was longer) 
  • star.gif Test Track - (our car got 1st place in some category I forget)
  • star.gif lastly.. I know nothing about Star Wars.. but Milennium Falcon was so fun w/ my crew (I was da engineer).. 


we got orange bird sippy cups !! good smoothie star.gif

BIRD.jpg IMG_1553.jpg

EPCOT was definitely one of my favorite parks, so cute.. I love the orange bird mascot so much because I learned once that Hysteric Glamour ripped off his design for their tomato duck, and he's my favorite print on their clothes tumblr_inline_mxkdjhcZdZ1qk1or3540.giftumblr_inline_mxkdhrFkgS1qk1or3540.gif 

walking in Florida heat & humidity killed us all but it was still so special ^p^ I invested in some Keen Zerraports II (cus Kiko Mizuhara made em look so cute here LMFAO) and lemme tell ya.. my new favorite shoes to walk in that aren't my only pair of old sneakers

anyway I love my partner & friends so much T.T  luv.gifluv.gifluv.gifluv.gifluv.gif I'm already so excited for our next adventures with each other.. the last time we hung irl was 6 years ago! curse u busy life.. 

rainbowz.jpg strawbear.jpg

I saw my first double rainbow at Animal Kingdom o.O

also I luv these ears 


sometimes I think about how when we all met on AWOLnow in 2005, we knew we would be friends forever, and here we are.... FRIENDS FOREVER !!! jen actually stank tho don't tell her I said ANY of this-- 

ICONATOR_ef79b8_536266.gif8D9251652336-iaza (1)

I think it'd be worth taking a blog post to talk about AWOLnow eventually.. but for now, here are 2007..? edits I made from screenshots (I'm on the far left in the flashing gif and the cows in the second are actually me and Jen ^p^)

LASTLY.. as expected, I got COVID LMAOOOOOOO 

so literally right after I came home I was bedridden for a week binging America's Next Top Model again like a weird fever dream (I noticed MILK & MILKBOY's Hitomi Okawa is randomly featured in cycle 3's Japan trip which was kinda neat).. then I had to play catch-up with work KSDJKSFD 


that wraps up my first entry !!! this was so fun to write and I will try to update this when I feel like it.. my life is very uneventful LOL but I luv to share stuff I like  ^_^ luv.gifluv.gif so look forward to shorter entries w/ art stuffs, music/games/tv, fashion, and other hobbies!
