I’m glad spring is here. That means summer is right around the corner. But I’m not rushing, because light jacket weather is a MOOD right now. My mom gave me her old denim jacket and every opportunity I get to go outside I slip that baby on. It looks one that Usagi wears but like in the 90’s version of Sailor Moon. So do I feel like her a little bit when I wear that jacket? Yes, yes I do. Does that bring me joy? Yes, yes it does.

The past few weeks have been pretty rough. I was super sick, and I’m still not 100% yet but I’m getting there. I had plenty of time though to watch a few episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal. So far I like it, but I’m only on episode 13. It more closely follows the manga. Although, the original 90’s anime is still my favorite. It brings back so many memories. For example, the numerous times when my family went to the video store on the corner and I would rent all the movies on VHS. Not going to lie, I have probably seen Promise of the Rose a hundred times. True facts. I also started the new Fruits Basket series too. It started just when I needed it. All those nostalgic feels.

Schedule wise, my goal is to post one Living Life vignette every week. It is a series based on scenes I witness or am a part of IRL turned into an interesting story. So probably any day between Friday and Sunday a new post should be up. I’ll also try to do a Snapshot post every month (just like this post you’re currently reading lol) just to give a personal update and probably ramble on about Sailor Moon and Fruits Basket. I LOVE THEM BOTH SO MUCH.

Here are some of my posts since the last Snapshot update if you’re in need of reading material:

I know I rambled on about my denim jacket, but are there any clothes that you have a special attachment to? I’d love to talk in the comments!

Announcement: My Blog’s Purpose and “Living Life”

When you’re just starting out everything is exotic, like an explorer charting out newly discovered land. Years of dreaming, months of research, and then weeks of implementation all start to merge together until you have finally spit something out that you can be proud of.

Well, at least it’s a start.

My blog is going to be a collection of announcements/updates when something exciting happens, fiction stories of various length, and any thoughts of mine that need a voice.

My previous post was the first entry in a series of vignettes based on little scenes that I happen to witness or be a part of IRL. It’s going to serve as a writing exercise for me and a readable thing for you. So a win, win. The idea for the vignettes came to me when I recalled an incident that had happened last week. My mother, fortunately, had a sudden need for the house to be neater, and her daughter (me), unfortunately, had all her notebooks, books and random sheets of paper (with important stuff written on them) placed ever so haphazardly (yet purposefully) all over the place. Needless to say I was irked in having to move all. the. stuff.

I thought my response was appropriate. “Mom… I’m living my life!” She looked at me and I looked at her. I could have just unleashed a flood of Looks (you know the disapproving mom stare) and commentary (or lack there of which is worse) but then, we both started to laugh. She liked my response… and so the vignette series was born. Although, I still had to move all. the. stuff.

Though it’s not perfect, its my own little space that I did all on my own. Can only go out from here. I mean who’s even reading this now? Hello, Whoever You Are. Are you ready for this trip?

So, the adventure begins. Let’s go.
