Thoughts About Dressing Rooms

There’s something that I want to discuss.

I am a very body positive person. I know that I’m not fat, but I am a bit rounder than I used to be. But I don’t hate myself for it, and I’ve been doing my best to eat healthy and work out. But I love my body the way it is right now. I look in the mirror and smile. 🙂

SO.

What is the deal with trying on clothes in dressing rooms at stores?

I am convinced that there is some sort of aesthetic that they use in dressing rooms to make you feel fat, like the lighting or something.

OR MAYBE, it’s just our own minds breaking down because we’re in a public place and we feel the need subconsciously to fit in with society’s standards. This sounds more likely.

Seriously though, I do my best to combat those feelings, but when I was trying clothes on the other day, I just looked fat! 

Well you know what?

FUCK DAT NOISE.

I’m freakin’ tall, I’ve got nice legs, and big boobs. I sometimes wish that my boobs were smaller so that I could wear cute little bralettes and bandeaus and shit, but my boobs are never going to change, so I must embrace them. 🙂 (I mean, they’re not extremely giant and they fit my body type well.)

And I like my face. And my eyes. 

SO FUCK OFF, SOCIETY, I’M PRETTY! 

;P

Animal Crossing: Wild World

Just for shits and giggles, here is a list of my current villagers in my town of Kyoto and their birthdays.

Curt, July 1st

 

Pudge, June 11th

 

Vesta, April 16th

 

Gaston, October 28th

Alli, November 8th

 

Drift, October 9th

 

Kiki, October 8th

 

Patty, May 10th

I just got Alli today, but I think she’s pretty. : ) I’m getting back into this game for some reason and I LOVE IT. I need to get a job so that I can get a 3DS and get New Leaf when it comes out. And the new Pokemon games. yayyyy nerd stuff.

ペンギンさん!

So, I just had a Caffe Mocha at Starbucks, and it was super amazing. If I was ペンギンさん, I would have said, “カフェモカおかわり” because I could drink a second one. :3

So, here’s a list of things I’ve been addicted to lately:

Frosted Mini Wheats

Animal Crossing: Wild World

And I guess that’s about it. Good thing I finished the Mini Wheats last night. I also made a batch of chocolate cookies with chocolate and mint chips for my friend because her dad just passed. But there was a lot of dough left over, and thankfully, there are only 3 left. It’s pretty much kryptonite for my mom and I. 

But seriously, I feel so bad for my friend. I can’t imagine what she’s going through right now, but frankly, I’m surprised that MY dad is still alive because he’s been smoking cigarettes since he was 15 years old, and he’s turning 60 in less than a week. He acts and looks much older than he is because he’s treated his body like shit his whole life. At least he’s not fat, that would just be one more problem for him. It’s not like he has a particularly good diet either. *sigh*

But I’m going to try getting him a birthday gift today since I’m out in Portland from dropping my mom off at work. The problem with my dad is that he doesn’t really care for material things. He reads a shit-load, but he doesn’t like to own books because once he’s read them once, he doesn’t need them anymore (I love having books though, because I always forget the whole story so it’s fun for me to re-read things). 

Anyway, I’m going to stop yapping now. 

じゃあね。

It’s almost 2013!

Well Merry Christmas and almost Happy New Year, everyone! I haven’t been feeling blogging lately, but I am now. : )

I spent my day yesterday doing mainly nothing. I did see my best friend Gaby, and we exchanged Christmas gifts and then went out to Powell’s Books to get some, well, books. : P I bought myself some Japanese books to help me get back in the zone and teach myself a little more.

What I really need to do is fill out my UW and FAFSA applications. Perhaps I’ll work on that while I’m at the beach with my mom, my brother, and his girlfriend. My aunt and uncle have a house at the beach that has a guest house attached to it, so they are always very welcoming to guests. : )

Beh, I’m kind of distracted and I need to get my shit together. 

さよなら, bitches!

It’s not even Christmas Eve, and I’ve wrapped way more than two fucking presents.

Hey, I’m sorry that I haven’t posted in a little over a week. I’ve been busy with finishing up my final term at community college and preparing for Christmas and seeing my friends that are home from college! By the way, I got an A in Public Speaking, a B+ in Meteorology, and a B in Business Communications. I have my AA now! Go me! : D
Things I’m into right now:

My awesome Spiderman pillow that I bought while out with a friend at an outlet mall. I got it at a Disney store and I didn’t realize that Marvel was owned by Disney. Actually, I think I was aware of that, I just forgot. : P The pillow is perfect for cuddling, which is why I bought it. : )

Season 3 of Glee. I watched almost the entire season in 2 days. I saw the first episode of the third season back when it came out and thought it was dumb, but I noticed that they had it on Netflix, so I decided to start watching from the third episode and onward, and I couldn’t really stop. : P

Christmas music (and Christmas in general ;P). I listen to the Christmas station whenever I get in the car lately and my mom bought a few new Christmas CDs, including the first Glee Christmas CD, which I’m listening to right now.

blink-182’s new EP Dogs Eating Dogs. My mom ordered me the “Naughty Package” from their website, which included a T-shirt, a Christmas card from blink, and a blink sticker. The EP got delivered to me electronically.

I actually haven’t been watching Sailor Moon a whole lot lately, I feel bad. : P I’ve watched 136/200 episodes. I’ve gotten all caught up on Shirokuma Cafe though, which I LOVE. 

Anyway, I’ll write a better blog entry when I’m less tired and more focused. 

じゃあね。

Thinking about my future

I wonder if I’ll ever get married. Right now, it seems like I will never meet anyone that I will love enough to want to spend the rest of my life with them. But I know I just need to get out of this small, stupid town and live my life. I really want a Japanese husband!!
I want to move to Japan, become fluent in Japanese, fall in love, and have adorable half-Japanese babies. I never used to want kids at all, but now I feel like I do. Later in my life, when my spouse and I have a steady income, of course. 

Part of me feels like I want to fast forward to where I meet my future spouse so that I can be comfortable and happy, but I guess that would take the fun out of this experience that we call life, now wouldn’t it? And I have to keep working out and eating healthy so that I can be a foxy American woman when I finally go to Japan. ; ) Not that I don’t think I am already, I’m just a little bit rounder than I’d like to be at the moment. ;P

Anyway, I guess this is another weird-ish post. I sort of want to bake something, but I don’t really want to do the work right now. ;P

If we had an orange and a lemon, I could totes do this right now: <http://nathanielemmett.tumblr.com/post/37613740536/the-scent-of-christmas-2-sticks-of-cinnamon-2-bay> I bet it smells amaaaazinnggg.

I’m going to go now, I don’t want this blog post to get too weird. 

じゃあね。

Christmas cards and Music

Alright! I finished my 3 homemade Christmas card designs. Now I just need to go to Kinko’s (I think that’s where I need to go. :P) and get some card stock so I can make some fucking awesome Christmas cards for my friends and family! 

ImageImageImage 

Speaking of Christmas cards, I must share this with you. I went to my local Goodwill today because I had some time to kill before my dental appointment, and I was nonchalantly browsing the Christmas card section of the store because it was 2 boxes of Christmas cards for $1. So guess what I found in there? 

A box of Papyrus Christmas cards. 

I bought them for 50 cents!!

I couldn’t believe my luck! For those of you that don’t know, Papyrus cards are super expensive, they’re always beautifully made with great colors, wonderful designs, and quality paper for the cards and the envelopes. They’re like the Nordstrom of greeting cards. So you can imagine my disbelief as I approached the cash register. The cashier looked at the bottom of the box and said, “look! these were $18.95! You got yourself a deal here!”. 

Fuckin’ A, I’m so proud of myself for that. 

As I was browsing the T-shirts, I HAD to buy a bright red one that says “School of Rock” and the theater release date for that movie. That is my favorite movie, so I had to buy it. It was $5. I have made many crafts and re-designed tops from T-shirts, so I’ll probably use it in a project like that in the future. There was also a Fireball Whiskey T-shirt that was only $4, but I’m broke and had to choose between one or the other, so I decided on School of Rock. Needless to say, I had a successful Goodwill shopping experience. It’s pretty much hit or miss every time I go there. : P

I have had a good day. I actually went out tonight! I went to my college’s choir and band concert with one of my friends, and this is my first quarter since attending my college that I haven’t been in band, so it was weird being in the audience. I had a good time though. : ) I am considering joining the band again for Winter and Spring quarter, because I miss it AND the band is going on a tour somewhere this Summer, which is always fun. So, hmmmmm. 

By the way, I’m a flute player. And I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned on here before that I also play the Bass Guitar and a little Electric Guitar. I LUV music! : D

Anywho, I’m going to get back to lazing about and watching anime. Ciao!
