Like the Sunshine (Two Year Anniversery on WordPress)

cover

Well now, this is special!

I’m posting tonight because I received a super special notification from the happy chappies at WordPress.com. Two years ago, I started this blog as a method of journaliing my musings and other ramblings as a way to manage stress. At the time of this blog’s creation, I had been faced with a lot of dreadful uncertainties that would leave me with knots in my tummy for nights on end. I had only just started my long distance relationship with an absolutely lovely girl and was afraid that we would never meet or be able to make it happen. My studies at both university and a community college had reduced me to a state resembling that of a nervous wreck; hair tearing and all.

The year after, my relationship had become stable. My classes had become manageable. I had begun my student work placement and had learnt more than I ever did in high school. About life, about love and about the world beyond high school. For once, my life seemed right. I was at peace.

And now, in 2016, many things have changed. My graduation, the fated meeting in Lover’s Arrival, the beginnings of my search for employment, the collapse of my relationship …

All of it proof that we are forever learning by experience. That the wildest and most unexpected things can happen, even when plans have been made and are seemingly set in stone. Life is what happens when you are busy making plans. And that, Mr. Lennon, is something that we can both agree on. Being the tired man that I am, i am not sure what I am supposed to be writing anymore here. The paragraphs that come after this were actually written first. This post is a mess, chaotic, just like life. It wasn’t planned. I had a general idea and the structure of the post all in my mind and then as I began to write it down, different thoughts flooded into my mind and altered those plans. Or took a sledgehammer to them. Completely.

This might sound awfully corny but I gotta write it …

In the past two years, I have become rather fond of moths. Now, I never liked moths as a kid. I always thought they were grotesque and wouldn’t think twice about shooing them away with a dainty wave of the hand. They were ugly to most people. Undesirable. And I often considered myself to be of a similar calibre. But all it took was one mental comparison, one alternate trail of thought, and my love for them began to blossom. There are those in the world that see beauty where others simply cannot. Those that find something beautiful where nothing of the sort can be found and observed by the average person. And I had the pleasure of meeting a few of these cherishable souls. The absolute honor of calling one my teacher, another one my friend, my lover …

Of course, you. My readers.

These people and their stories, their wisdom, their kindness and their love formed my coccoon and now I too, have become a one of these souls.

I’d like to thank you all for reading my blog over the past two years and do hope that you stick around for another.

May all the love in the world be yours. And remember, everybody’s gotta learn sometime. 

You know which song this is going to link you to … 

(It’s 3 AM and I sure could use some sleep … )

Love is Now (Legally) For Everyone!

Gay marriage approved in 50 states? Hey, congratulations America!

What a pivotal moment! To think that something as unexpected and wonderful as this could just roll out during a time of nothing but seemingly negative news. Hell, the only thing that could make this the greatest surprise in sociological history is if the suits up in the White House began spewing rainbow coloured fluid that when bottled and applied to the palm, cures cancer and boosts self esteem.

Let the good times roll! A new Summer of Love is upon us!

… well, actually It’s winter down here.

Tsunderomance

I guess you could say that she is ‘kawaii’.

Dandy never considered himself a weaboo in his entire life. He just watched the anime, loved the art style and that was about it. Apart from that, the constant portrayal of Japanese culture and themes weren’t things that he actively tried to replicate within daily life. Now that he’s the proud ‘hubando’ of an equally enthusiastic anime nut, I find myself slinging around those cringeworthy ‘boo terms on a regular basis in what is hopefully a playful and joking manner. There is no freaking way that I would actively shout ‘Arigato gozaimasu!’ after purchasing a cup of ramen in my neighbourhood. They know their weaboos and it would probably warrant a hefty beating …

But still, it’s nice to be able to joke around with a loved one by playfully applying particular anime tropes to your romance and even joke about how god awfully unrealistic some of stuff is. But please, just make sure it stays that way. I wouldn’t want you to end up shunned by your friends groups or by society in general. They won’t even accept you in Japan either, you gaijin.

Of course, I kid. Anything is possible.

Take Care!
