I forgot to put on my ring and my bracelet before heading to work and now my left hand feels naked.

This is going to bother me until I get back to my room.

But first, lunch/dinner, then work!

Resisting the Urge: Want. New. Umbrella.

Not that mine is bad in any way. I rather like the polka dots. (Afro Circus Afro Circus)

But with the rainy season come all the beautiful umbrellas and I keep finding ones that I want. There are two at Loft that I did not buy and yet still want because they're oh so pretty.

But no. I must be good. I've got a big trip coming up in September and another whirlwind trip almost definitely happening in October.

Must. Save. Money.

Lack of Self Control (i.e. Nyanko-sensei)

Trying to not buy unnecessary things failed when I spotted another Nyanko-sensei gacha-gacha. All of them are cute, but I'm rather glad I got one that matches my bag.

I didn't need it, but I'd say the 200yen is worth the happiness this brings me.

At the Theater: 予告犯 - After Thoughts

That was a lot better than I was expecting. And apparently I've been way more stressed recently than I thought. I cried a lot. Sobbed.

Good stuff. I needed that.

And just enough Toma to hold me over until the Ouroboros DVD box set. Which I plan to binge watch and go through the whole sobbing process all over again.

Good stuff.

At the theater: 予告犯 (i.e. TOMA!)

Finished my training session today and I should probably go home and shower, considering I'm covered in sweat, but I'm going to the movies to watch Toma before his movie is no longer in theaters.

Must. See. Toma.

It's down to one showing and I really don't have the time to go in the next two weeks. So yeah.

Must. See. Toma.

I actually am interested in the movie itself, but you know, I should be honest about my priorities.

Must. See. Toma.

CreaMa vol.32: Special Order Pick-up

About a month ago, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed, for lack of a better word.

And while I was looking for ways to center myself, I found peace in the knowledge that I am a California girl. That is a strong part of my identity. A Califoria Girl. A Cal Girl. Cal. The University of California, Berkeley. The Golden Bears. I am a Golden Bear.

And no matter what happens. No matter where I go. This is a fact that will not change. It is an honor and a privilege. I am proud to be a Golden Bear.

But sometimes I forget this about myself. And I get lost and feel helpless. A month ago was one of those times.

Until I remembered that I am a Golden Bear.

And I started to look for ways to remind myself. A pendant or charm perhaps. I kept my eyes open at CreaMa and came across a brass and silver artist, different from the one who made my ring, who would imprint custom messages onto brass bangels. So I ordered a bangle and it was ready for pick up at his store in Osu today. There was a bit of a mix-up, but he sorted it out quite efficiently. A few adjustments to fit it to my wrist and it's lovely.

This is my anchor.

Lest I forget.

I am a Golden Bear.

At the theater: The Avengers: The Age of Ultron


Happy 4th of July!

I'm headed out to meet a friend and watch The Avengers. Got my Stars and Stripes 'murica nails and my Cap shirt. Planning to get coke and popcorn and laugh loudly without concern for how it may seem to those around me.

Also, the perm kinda took. Ideally, I'd have glorious waves without having to tweak it. Still, better than last time. Maybe third time's the charm.

Turning Pages: ONE PIECE 78

Officially on sale tomorrow, but I had some time before work and I wanted to pick up this week's Shonen Magazine with the Avengers one-off for Samancha, so I got ONE PIECE since they had them laid out. Whee!
