Seven Facts About Me

I wrote 27 facts about me a few months ago, but here are seven more!

Ticket of Utada's In the Flesh Tour

Very old picture, the ink on my ticket is fading now :(

1. My first ever concert was Utada Hikaru.
She was in Vegas for her In the Flesh tour back in 2010, and of course I had to go! She’s my favorite Japanese singer. <3 It was an amazing night! In a particularly silent moment, I yelled that she was hot and she giggled. I MADE HIKKI GIGGLE. “Passion” was the first song from her Japanese set. Have a listen. :3

2. I lift weights three times a week.
I used to go running, but with my knee problems, I’ve switched to lifting weights. Fitness has been a long, on-and-off journey for me since high school, but I just gotta keep on truckin.

3. I’m a Moon in Aquarius and Gemini Ascendant.
In astrology, there’s more than just what most people think of as their zodiac sign (their Sun sign). People also have Moon signs, Venus signs, Merucury signs, Rising signs, and so on. These signs are in line not just with your birth date, but your place of birth and the time you were born too.

I still can’t wrap my head around it all. Astrology is so complicated! But if you feel like the textbook definition of your Sun sign isn’t accurate to your personality, that’s likely because of your other signs.

I entered all my birth info on Cafe Astrology for funsies. I’m a Moon in Aquarius and a Gemini Rising, among other signs. XD The natal chart it outputs is very detailed. I still don’t understand all of it yet. Astrology is fun, so long as you’re aware that it’s divination with no grounds in science. :P

4. I’m a sad drunk.
After a certain point, I pass the “everything is funny” phase and go straight to “here’s my entire life story and everything bad that happened to me ever” phase. I will be crying my eyeballs out while simultaneously throwing up in a bin, guaranteed.

I don’t drink very much.

5. I love crappy music covers.
I laugh my butt off at this video everytime. I also love this crappy melodica cover of Jurassic Park. XD Truly a masterpiece of our time.

6. I’m ashamed of how far I’ve fallen into the Solavellan hole.

Mad props to Eirene for putting up with my crazy shipping the last week. XD I’m sorry but this romance is exactly the content I signed up for. EXACTLY. sign me the FUCK up 👌👀👌👀👌👀👌👀👌👀 good shit go౦ԁ sHit👌 thats ✔ some good👌👌shit right👌👌th 👌 ere👌👌👌 right✔there ✔✔if i do ƽaү so my self 💯 i say so 💯 thats what im talking about right there right there (chorus: ʳᶦᵍʰᵗ ᵗʰᵉʳᵉ) mMMMMᎷМ💯 👌👌 👌НO0ОଠOOOOOОଠଠOoooᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒ👌 👌👌 👌 💯 👌 👀 👀 👀 👌👌Good shit

7. I can’t escape Tumblr.
As a corollary to the previous point, I’M BACK ON TUMBLR COMMISERATING WITH OTHER SOLAVELLAN SHIPPERS. Just when I thought I’ve ~escaped~ the clutches of that landfill disguised as a website, I end up fangirling something hard and only Tumblr understands my crazy feelings. Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble, I’m not actually ✨✨cool and かっこいい✨✨; I’m a major loser with 2D husbandos.

I’m a little late on this post, so if you’ve already been nominated, I suppose you can disregard. :3 Now if you’ll excuse me, I have other pressing matters to attend to. *launches Dragon Age Inquisition*


  1. BEST POST EVER. HAHAHAHA! Your shipping titbits had me rolling! :D As a fellow fangirl, I totally get your feels. When a pairing works wonderfully, it’s the best feeling ever XD You’re not a loser at all, hahaha! I’ll fangirl with you on other things XD

    Thanks for the nomination, btw! XD

  2. You should get your old tickets laminated to preserve the ink :D. I wish I did that to mine because all of my tickets and stuff are faded @__@. Go you for lifting 3x a week! It’s definitely good to get fit and toned ;). There are so much stuff going on with your birth date from Chinese zodiac to a bunch of other astrology things. I think it’s pretty neat along with the qualities that comes along with it. That cover of Jurassic park somehow reminds me of Eye of the Tiger from an old typewriter-tape machine XD. Love the emoji spam on #6 XD.

    Thank you for the tag ^__^~~

  3. Number 4 is me too! HAHA. I’m so glad I’m over alcohol. Thanks for the nomination! Will try to do this! I’ve been so lazy and so behind with my blog! It’s just because I’d rather do nothing with Jorge than do something and not be able to actually spend time with him before he leaves. I’M SUPER SAD! Huhu.

  4. I used to love Utada Hikaru! That’s also awesome that you lift every week. I’ve been having an on-and-off journey with fitness too. When I was living by myself, I would run every other day, but now I’m sooo lazy. I’m really trying to get back into the habit.

    I didn’t know there were more zodiac signs! I only know my Sun and Chinese one. That site has way more info than I thought there’d be.

    haha, 4-7 are funny XD Sadly, I’m not an amusing drunk because I’m a sleepy drunk. I will just fall asleep on the couch or something.

    Thanks for nominating me! :D

    1. Doing hobbies seemed a lot easier when I lived alone too! You’d think you’d have more time with someone else helping out, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. @_@

      I wish I was just a sleepy drunk! I’ve embarrassed myself too much when I’ve blacked out before. D8

  5. Wow, I think I should start lifting some weights again. I guess my body missed it because I haven’t gone to the gym for months now due to extreme hectic schedule. T.T And I agree with you on astrology. I love learning more about those signs, but it gets complicated sometimes! Haha sometimes they’re pretty accurate though. :)

    1. Astrology’s super fun! I love the silly posts Tumblr makes about it. XD Fitness was something I had to make time for, but now it’s just a part of my daily routine. Just gotta stay on a loose schedule and you can have time for anything you want. :D

  6. ohmygod i– i had to laugh at no.4 :)) i’m sorry but i’m imagining the scene in my head right now.

    i remember loving utada hikaru very much all because of kingdom hearts. simple & clean is also one of the most ridiculous songs ever. the lyrics = ridiculous. even hikki said so lmao she said she has no idea what she was writing :))

    hm, maybe i’ll like that bald egg once i get my hands on the dlc. who knows.. :P

    1. A lot of Hikki’s English songs made very little sense, and I was so pressed tbh. I wanted her crossover to be successful. :(


  7. Thanks, Raisa! <3

    Do you have a lifting tips? I've been watching these YouTubers recently and the couple lift together and they're so fit and I'm like lifting actually looks fun! I would love to get into it.

    Astrology is so complicated, but interesting as well. I love how there's so much more to it than people thin. I'll be looking into that website later!

    I'm a sad drunk, too. When loads of things are on my mind, that's when I'm the worst when I'm drunk. My friends could tell you plenty of stories about the many times I have cried and cried, haha.

    1. Don’t be afraid to lift heavier weights! They won’t make you too bulky, just toned. Lifting weights can burn a lot of calories if you do it right. I recently upgraded to a 15-pound set and I’m so excited! XD

  8. Cheers to the sad drunks! Lol – I get the same way. There is just a point of not return and I can only spew all the things that are currently not going according to my life plan haha. I don’t drink much either. :P

    My brother recently gave us a weight set, but they are still sitting in the corner of our closet, haha. We’ve been so busy with new jobs and classes and moving, but these are really just excuses and I need to start doing something again!

    1. If you can set aside 30 minutes three times a week, that’s already a big difference! :D I don’t spend more than an hour when I work out. It’s part of my weekly routine now.

  9. You seen Utada Hikaru? I’m JELLY! Highly jelly. I love her work from the past and until now. Even Easy Breezy. My first true concert was Vienna Teng. Check her out. She’s wonderful. :D

    I love Tumblr, as well =) Let’s take our husbandos together! ^^

  10. My main went with Cullen and there was such a sweet surprise re their relationship in Trespasser.

    However, I totally get the Solavellan ship, stupid heart-breaking egg. I’ve heard so much about the Solavellan shipping that I’m really tempted to replay the main game + Trespasser to get the full feels. *joins you in trash*
