Merry Christmas 2020 everyone! As you can probably tell, the holidays were super hectic for me this year. Which is why this is coming out LITERALLY on New Year’s Eve. (Who else is ready for 2021 to finally get here already?)
Th “Give Thanks” challenge was really humbling and inspiring to me. If you haven’t tried it, I encourage you to do so. In short, for a week, you post each day one thing you’re grateful for. Here were my 7 things, along with my accompanying thoughts that I “Give Thanks” for!
I was recently asked by someone though “What are you grateful for in 2020?” I sat there, thinking honestly, for longer than I probably should have. Ultimately, I came to the conclusion, that for me, 2020 has made me grateful for faith. Faith in God and Jesus Christ. Faith in others. And the faith that we will get through this worldwide struggle together.
Got another make up review coming your way – or rather something to ease your sore, make-up caked skin after a long day of cosplaying – or even just a long day in general! Today we’re talking about the one-step facial cleanser from Philosophy, “Purity Made Simple Cleanser”.
A bit delayed, I know, but I still wanted to wish everyone on here a very Happy Halloween 2020!

I’ve been in a bit of a revitalized good mood primarily due to rewatching episodes of the anime 進撃の巨人 (“Shingeki no Kyojin”), so I thought I’d relate an experience I had while living in Tokyo in 2015 called “Attack on Wall Tokyo” as well as another one I had during a trip to Sapporo in 2016 called “Attack on Wall Sapporo”.
Chapter Thirty-Four for “Defying Destiny” has been posted! Check it out!
This is surprisingly, another one of those “I can’t believe I haven’t written about this sooner” posts. But then again, when you’re in Japan, there’s next to no time, zilch, to really document it other than via photos. As such, 4 years later, let’s talk about concerts in Japan, and specifically, my first concert in Japan.
Recently I appeared as a guest writer on the Japan Living and Lifestyle blog run by the lovely Urano family. What did I write on? Well of course, one of my favorite places on earth: Ikebukuro (池袋)! More specifically though, I discussed some of my favorite places to get great sweets and treats in and around the Sunshine Street and City areas. So in addition to that article, today, I’m sharing here a little more on my favorite place in Ikebukuro for sweet things: Milky Way!
Throughout my time living in Japan, I tried to do things that I had never done before. My first Kabuki experience though, was a no joke, INTENSE experience steeped in rich Japanese history and culture.
