Anime & growing up.

Earlier this year, I was thinking if it was time I should drop anime. Forget about it & just move on with my life. Anime was part of my childhood and teenage life. I felt that I should probably grow up & maybe, dropping anime was a sign of growing up.

At first, I really tried to stop liking it. I tried to change the way I felt & thought about anime. I wanted so much to look at anime and say, "Meh, it's just anime. No big. Something that I used to like & watch."
I really tried.

But then, I just couldn't. Every time, I try to distance myself from anime, I always find a reason that pulls anime tighter to me. I just couldn't think of it as something of the past.

That was when I realize that growing up won't be proven by me dropping anime. I don't know about you but I realized that growing up meant seeing things with more clarity and understanding more. It's about gaining wisdom while retaining the youth in your heart. That's how I feel anyway.

So now, I know that I don't need to drop anime to grow up.

I don't know how long anime will last in my life. Maybe, it'll be in my life till my death comes or maybe, I'll drop in 10 years. 
But as for now, I won't drop it. Heck, I found more reasons to let anime stay.

In the moments of trying to get rid of anime, I have only grown closer to it.

So yea. Growing up doesn't always mean forgetting some things.

That's all I have to say for now. Anyhow, I'm off to watch Naruto now.

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Growing up, closure and an interview.

I guess it's time I grow up. When high school is over, I have to grow up, be a mature and a responsible little young lady.
There's alot of things I have to learn.

To be honest, I'm a little afraid of leaving graduating from high school.
I mean, I've been going to school for years. And the thought that it will finally end is a relief but also a little frightening.

But it's a new chapter in life. Everyone goes through it. So yea, I'm afraid but excited at the same time. There's so much to do after the graduating. College, driver licence & etc...

I guess I'll miss high school a little. Never thought it would end...but yea, it will soon enough.

Before I left high school, I need some closure. I mean, I made some friends & lost some friends. I do have some regrets. I was such an idiot and arrogant ass last time.
So yea, before high school end, I need to send some letters to the few people I hurt.

But I guess, that's high school. You make a hell lot of…
