I haven't done a journal in so long. Some things haven't changed, but a lot has, so I think I will just redo the last journal I typed to show what's new. Since it's long, I'll put the most important stuff first and then the biggest changes.
Before that though, a quick news update: I'm going off to college later this month! Definitely an exciting time in life.
6.) Bucket List/Wishes for the Future:
-Get in touch with inner abs/weight training regularly
-Learn Arabic language (in addition to Japanese)
-Travel the world
-Become better at art and learn more kinds of art
-Become a Counseling Psychologist (definite goal)
-Learn to swim and explore the sea
This has got to be the BIGGEST change. Right now I am more into studying Environmental Science and sustainability. During senior year of high school, I completed a semester long research project on the topic and I aspire to possibly become an Environmental Public Relations Specialist or an Environmental Resource Manager. Overall, life has been great and a girl honestly couldn't wish for anything else having had so many blessings and wonderful people and experiences in her life. Of course, I'll keep my ambition with me in the future and look ahead with caution, faith, and courage.
1.) Favorite Animes:
-Arakawa Under the Bridge
-Tokyo Mew Mew
This hasn't changed much. These animes are still my faves, but nowadays I watch dramas more so than anime. I got into Dramafever a couple years back and I watch Korean dramas there on and off now. Some of my favorites were: Boys Over Flowers, I Hear Your Voice, When a Man Loves, and the Taiwanese drama Autumn's Concerto. I also like East of Eden (though since it's so long I probably won't finish it, at least not sometime soon) and I'm currently in love with Oh my Ghostess.
I also watch a lot of YouTube, including Let's Plays, Skits, Vlogs, and tons of music and random videos. The only TV I watch is generally when I'm watching weekly shows like the Haves and Have Nots and Empire (Oh Empire, how I wish you would return sooner).
4.) Groups/Artists I Listen to: (just a fraction of them)
-Alicia Keys -Ne-Yo
-Mary J. Blige -Keyshia Cole
-Jennifer Hudson -Baiyu
-Toni Braxton -Paul Kim
-Tyga -DJ Okawari
-Nicki Minaj -2PM
-Sauti Sol (Still the One)
-Juggy D (Meri Jaan)
-Florence + the Machine
I still like all the above artists though I don't listen to all of them frequently. I'll list a few more.
- Frank Ocean
- Tori Kelly
- Lyfe Jennings
- The Dream
- Luna Blake (formerly Ally Rhodes)
- Trevor Jackson
- Original music and covers of popular songs by artists like: David So, Z. Woods, and Lydia Paek
- Korean artists and groups like: Crush, Zion T., Loco, Got7, GRAY, 40, Rain, Shinee (mostly newer music and Taemin and Jonghyun's solo albums), EXO, etc.
I'll stop here; I could literally go on for days about artists I listen to.
5.) What I Watch on Youtube:
-Let's Plays (chuggaaconroy, lucahjin, etc.)
-Comedy (DavidSo, Nigahiga, JustKiddingFilms, WongFuProductions, etc.)
-Random informative videos (TheJWittz, VSauce, etc.)
Mostly the same, except now I watch a lot of DashieGames and DashieXP as well as some TPindell. I haven't been watching JustKiddingFilms or WongFu as much, but occasionally I do catch up on JustKiddingNews and WongFu skits.
7.) My Traits:
-Diligent and driven when it comes to academics
-A bit of a loner
-Love to spread info and interesting facts
-Love to teach and help people when I'm capable
-Love to exercise, move, and get fresh air
-Doesn't like really crowded, noisy, hot areas
Not much change here. Though I will add that I can be really brave and determined when speaking up for what's right. That's pretty much all the major stuff. Have an awesome day guys~!
You are all beautiful, unique beings.
