School, for me anyway, starts August 17th. Unbelievable right? We've had 3-ish months of summer and, to be honest, I am so glad to be going back to school. I've missed it really badly. Why did I miss it? Because I wanted to be busy, I wanted to keep myself occupied and when someone gives you no chose but to occupy yourself, I find it very encouraging (especially if I want to do it!). The best part about school is that I'm taking mostly 10th-grade classes. Biology, Geometry, Honors English, Art in World Cultures (ELECTIVE), HOPE (this is P.E.), Civics (Charisma and I could've taken this in 8th grade but my parents didn't want us too), and Digital Literacy (it's required. Trust me, I tried to get out of it....). :D I'm going to be so busy! :D
My Japanese is going well, although I would like better sources for vocabulary and grammar (those are the two things I'm currently working on). Or maybe, I don't know, a teacher? As some of you might know, it's my goal to take a college course for Japanese at my local community college while in 10th grade. That is why I must get all A's on my report card. I'm an over-achiever when it comes to school. If I don't get an A or a B, I will be absolutely shattered, but I would still tell my parents that I got a low score, because they'll either help me, remind me of my goal, tell me to get help from a teacher if I'm really struggling with a certain concept, and a whole lot more.
I'm digitally editing a character that I drew! And let me tell you, *laughs*, I don't have anything fancy. No SAI, no Wacom Cintiq or Intuos, no Photoshop. Nada. Zilch. Nothing. All I've got is my handy-dandy, scanner, Paint (which is already installed on every computer), and my imagination. And truthfully, I am terrified. This is the scariest experience of my artist life. (I have several lives: Writer's Life, Artist's Life, Blogger's Life, Over-Achiever's Life, Crocheter's Life, Reader's Life, OTAKU's Life, Family Person's Life, and Outstanding-Amazing Friend's Life. I have nine lives unless someone can see more of my lives that I can't see... One might say I have nine lives. :D) Since I've never done this before (and since I have ZERO LAYERS. I didn't know what layers did before, but now I know that layers ARE A BLESSING!!! Do not take those beauties for granted!) I'm watching my sister (who is digital editing too) while she gives me tips, and I'm re-doing everything for the Umpteenth time. Though, I will survive.
I read a variety of good books this summer (don't worry, I'm gonna do some Book Reviews before school starts) and now I have found my favorite Female author: Katy Towell. I love her so much, that reading the two books she published were satisfaction for a week. Her books are all the scary, friendship, terrifying-suspenseful moments I could ever want in a book! :D Her website is called Skary and, I believe, she's working on another book (oh am I excited!).
I've had one for a while know but, I'm finally on Miiverse! I've put several posts from my gaming experiences on Demo's and full games, although they're all from Nintendo. I've posted some Style Savvy: Trendsetters and Fashion Forward, some Pokemon X and some other games as well. I'm trying to earn the money to buy some games (Animal Crossing: New Leaf is NEXT on my list. Unless someone convinces me otherwise), yet that's taking a whole lot longer than anticipated.
So yup! This is life. I hope all of you have a great rest of summer break!
Life, people. I love it. I have NEVER had such a fun/happy/crazy summer like this one. And let me tell you, I have literally done NOTHING to laugh. I just laughed at everything. Music, pictures, animes, cartoons, food, I don't know how I do it, I just love to laugh.
Schools starts August 17th for me and Charisma. I am so steamed. I wanted school to start on August 15th and then I totally forgot about this 'stagger start' thing. Ugh. When I want school people, I want school. But, now that I think about it, I'm actually quite thankful. I can get ahead in Science (the subject that doesn't love me and I don't love it) and so that way I can better understand the content that I'm being taught and then I can get an A! :3 I'm ready school (except I don't have my planner just yet....).
My Japanese is going good. I'm trying to find a teacher on the site called iTalki, I have the teacher (is she a tutor?) that I want to study with but a one hour session cost 9 dollars. I'm not worried about the nine dollars part, I'm just worried that my mother won't let me use iTalki.
Capital Kings, an American pop, electronic and Christian pop group, released an album called (II) last year in October and I absolutely love this album. My favorite song so far has to be Northern Sky, then it would have to be Live For The Drop.
I haven't been writing lately, that's the reason I haven't updated My Writing Journey in quite some time. I'm thinking about editing Another Imagination soon, I just don't know how I'm going to print it... Why is that still a problem for me?
Surprisingly, I have NOT read much of anything this summer. I've read some Pokemon manga, but that's it. Well, now I've got something to do. I need to go see what books I can get at the library...
Well that's pretty much it! How's your summer going?
It was coming sooner or later. You must have all guessed it by the title, but today I am going to be talking about my favorite OTPs. EVER.
Mytho + Rue = Rytho (Princess Tutu)
(Mytho is pronouced Mew-toe, so they're shipped name would be: Ruto. :3)
They are literally one of the cutest couples. The prince, Mytho, is cursed with a shattered heart and the young girl, Rue, is in love with the prince, yet is daughter to his enemy, the Raven King. But this match... Let's just say they had a very, very tough relationship (from the VERY beginning).
Eugene Fitzherbert + Rapunzel = They Have No Shipped Name (Tangled)
GAH, everytime I look at them I want to smile. I mean COME ON. Look at the way Flynn (Eugene) looks at Rapunzel. HE LOVES HER. Enough said there.
Luminous + Lania = Luna (MapleStory)
Although Nexon has never said if they were a real couple or if they were just friends or family, I don't care. I have a fanfictionous mind and I declare them a couple (they both deserve one another anyway...).
Phantom + Aria = Phania (MapleStory)
I couldn't find any pictures of Phantom and Aria (because they were either REALLY sad or REALLY sad), so that's all I could give you. So Phantom used to be a thief until he met the former Empress Aria. He then came to visit her very often on her balcony and I'm pretty sure they were going to marry... until she tragically passed away. So now, he fights along side the greatest heroes of MapleStory, not only to get revenge but because he knew Aria would want him too. (This whole entire paragraph was what I had gathered over the years soooo yes.)
Age + Patema = Agema (Patema Inverse)
So the whole plot of this movie is that there are two worlds. And they're both inverted. If one walks on the ground, the other floats in the air. Yes, it's complicated, BUT these two main characters break the boundaries of these two worlds. Best complicated movie ever.
Marinette + Adrien = Marien or Adrienette
Beauty isn't everything. I know for some people, that sounds absurd, but you've heard the quote: "Beauty isn't everything. It's what in the inside that counts." And it's true. Some people judge other people on how they act and how they act towards you. Just because the other person looks better than you do doesn't mean you should hide in a corner and say, "I've going to give up now."
DON'T GIVE UP!
Don't even PRETEND that you are a nobody. Because you're worth something in this world. Some people may take that for granted, but please live up to your potential. Don't shame your self because you can't do something another person can. Everybody is unique and that includes YOU.
Don't let ANYONE AT ALL tell you that you are not worth it, that you are ugly, or that you are the most unattractive person. THEY ALL LIE. You are beautiful, just the way you

Guest Blogger is coming tomorrow? Are you guys excited? Tell me in the comments!
Now, for those otaku's (anime and manga fans) out there, you probably know what konnichiwa is, but for those of you who don't, konnichiwa is Japanese for hello. :3 It's pronounced co-KNEE-chi-wah. Very simple, and it looks amazing with the cherry blossoms (which in Japanese is Sakura). I wanted something different than the Aloha that we used to have up, but still use the same element of a different language.
How do you guys like it? I hope you all like it, Bianca and I had a long... discussion on what the Twisted Two header should be. We each had a different vision and my vision was NOT at all what you see on the header. I wanted something really crazy, so crazy, I have no idea what it was. But we decided on this and I'm really happy with it. :D
Please comment what your favorite language is!
