Okay! Here is the half of the trip after the con! In actuality, it was the same length as the time I was with Meaka, but it felt a lot shorter for some reason... Probably because so much of it was traveling.

IMAGE HEAVY so be warned!

So I've been working at the zoo for a year but I never took a vacation!!! (Lots of sick days but that doesn't count.) I decided I wanted to go to Katsucon with Meaka and my other pals, and when said other pals confirmed I would have a room I set about making my plans!!!!

This is really image heavy, so be warned!!

below the cut i am going to talk about what a terrible show sword art online is, episode by episode.

initially i planned to watch SAO by summarizing my thoughts in between each ep but that soon became way too daunting of a thought, because i would just get mad every two seconds. so i livetweeted for awhile, but even that didn't really total my frustration.

so here we are. after having seen all of SAO season 1, my thoughts, separated (mostly) by episode.

warning: if you liked SAO, you won't like reading this. also, if you liked SAO, get better taste

Plot asked if my Cinnamoroll collection had expanded and I realized my shelf of stuff was... sort of messy. So I took a chance to a) redecorate and b) log all my stuffed animals!

A before picture.

I found a collection of cute Japanese folklore tales online, so I decided to translate as many as I could!

Link to original story.

This tale is from Wakayama, called "Trading Tasks." It's pretty cliche, but such is folklore.

Short Marisa and Reimu comic I found and translated for fun. I really like seeing them together as pals. This was also a practice in typesetting.

So I was in the Catskills at the end of my spring break! Up there, I was at a Zen Buddhism monastery doing an "Intro to Zen" weekend with a class from my school on Japanese Culture through Food. Here's a report on my trip!

Warning: Image-heavy, as the area was very beautiful. I did my best to resize, but if you want a bigger photo, ask away.

While we're still testing the waters and trying madly to get Livejournal back to how it should be, I've taken care to move over here for the time being. Should LJ continue to ignore users, the move will likely be permanent. I guess we'll see.

It's sad to imagine the communities I used to frequent become frozen in time due to the change, but I guess in time, we'll see what happens.
