great. I had written some really nice paragraphs and tried to save the post, but WordPress had an error and ~my writing~ was deleted. I don’t like writing anyway so I’m just going to dump a bunch of photos here and call it a day. Also, I have a few TV series suggestions for you kids.

This was a very interesting week by the way. In one week I got to see both aurora borealis and partial solar eclipse! What a time to be alive! [I’m fully aware such things have been happening since 4ever, but still what a time, what a time…]
attempt at looking dandy/dapper or smtn
idk I’m bad at formal wear/school events, it’s hard to find +/- fancy clothes I feel comfortable in. But. I have not failed at life. Because, you see, I now look just like my favourite anime character/crush from early teen-hood, which is Yasuko from Aoi Hana!!! okay, okay my fave is problematic and was a jerk to Fumi, but come on she is hella handsome.
omg omg look Yasuko is playing Heathcliff in their school’s adaptation of Wuthering Heights and Akira is brushing her hair with a toothbrush
ok, but for real, how do kids even survive through the ages of 11 and 14 without watching anime??? Do they play basketball??? Sing in a choir??? Hang with friends???
I’m really into this j-drama 問題のあるレストラン (A Restaurant With Many Problems), which is about about a group of women and one feminine guy (not transgender) opening a restaurant and dealing with sexism in Japan. It’s about the restaurant and food, but really it’s more about those social problems, stereotypes, glass ceiling, sexual harassment at workplace etc. As any j-drama it has a lot of humour and seemingly childish elements, but still it has a variety of characters with different problems.
Kyoko finally stands up for herself in front of her jerk ex-husband
there is this one character who is really cute and girly and tries to ignore all the nasty things guys do to her, acting all positive and pretending nothing has happened, it’s really sad
Also, just today I started watching web series called Carmilla on youtube! They are super cool and very similar to Lizzie Bennett Diaries if you know those, just like LBD Carmilla is based on an actual book from the 19th century – this time about Vampires’s. Okhaaay, who cares about vampires anymore? Well I don’t, but oh god Carmilla? Also nearly everyone is gay there, yaaay, but it’s not central to the plot it’s just like they are.
I’m also thinking about watching Steven Universe…? It seems cool, and it has gems? I mean I’m already a geology nerd. Oh, yeah, also don’t let me go near shops that sell minerals and gems, just no –
okay, but how can you pass by agate???
