beware of natre

Today's blogmas day 2!

Yesterday was a great day! I ordered my first Fairy Loot box (the January one) as a birthday present from my mom and I'm more than excited for the book it will contain, which I've been waiting for MONTHS (coughcoughcaravalcoughcough). I also won my first giveaway: an ARC of Wait for Me by Caroline Leech. I'm so happy, I cannot believe it yet :')

Also, on Sunday we started a 1 week Secret Santa in the dorm so we have to put one gift in our lucky person's locker every night. Yesterday, since I finished homework at 2am, I didn't bring my stuff to the lobby until then, and I have to say it was a hella bad idea because at that time this building is scary af. As usual, by that time Robin (my neighbour) was still awake and she forgot to bring her present before, so she also had to be an adult as well and do it. When she told me she was going downstairs I told her "Beware of Natre." and she freaked out-- it was so great. #sorrynotsorry

For those who don't know who's Natre, she's a character from a Thailandese horror movie we watched at the lobby 2 weeks ago and that gave us trouble to sleep for a whole damn week. The movie is called Shutter, in case you wanna check it out.

casually throwing a scene that will give me nightmares tonight

In other news, today at Okinawan culture class we went to the Nakagusuku Castle! There was such a beautiful landscape, so we took lots of pictures. 

Hope you liked this post! See you tomorrow :)

obsessions are what dreams are made of

So yeah, I decided to do blogmas this week so you'll have a daily post until Sunday. 
Since I have a lot of time to write today because I haven't done my kanji homework yet (I've had like a week and a half to do it. Yes, I'm that lazy), I will be showing you my recent creations.

Let's start with one of my biggest inspiration sources: King George's Rainbow. If you don't know/remember what I'm talking about, I wrote about that in Colours in the sky - Rainbow
Before summer, for the anniversary of the first mv that came out last year (aka The Fourth Wall), I made a huge bookmark/poster as a tribute of the whole album.

For the Diet or Die one, I told Jordi I wanted to make another version featuring Barbara Blow (the sexy gluttony lady) but I kind of forgot about it so I made it today!

Today I also made 4 bookmarks inspired by the Zodiac book series by Romina Russell as a bookversary gift for her and all the fans of her books. 

Zodiac - Wandering Star
Black Moon - Thirteen Rising

Also, some months ago, after I read Zodiac, I made another 2 bookmarks. One with The Twins and another one with Rho in it.

Now, let's jump to the very first bookmarks I ever made, that were the Divergent ones. I had just finished reading Allegiant and I was so delighted with the series that I couldn't resist to make a bookmark of my faction, that's Erudite. I had so much fun drawing it that I had to make the other factions' ones.

And because obsessions are what dreams are made of, when Bathtub Mermaid came out, I drew this fanart.

Remember when I said the Divergent bookmarks were the first ones I made? I lied. The first one was this, inspired by To all the boys I've loved before and P.S. I still love you by Jenny Han, with Lara Jean in it.

I'm very happy with it because, despite it's not so well done, thanks to it I've been practising a lot with my graphic tablet and I've been able to draw many other bookmarks.
And finally, do you remember my obsession for Suicide Room? It didn't get better. Before coming to Japan, I bought the original dvd and during my flight to Dubai I drew this inspired by Dominik and Sylwia.

Have you read any of the books mentioned above?
Do you like the Divergent series? If so, what's your faction?

Hope you liked them! See you tomorrow :)

new neighbour (holy shit ver.)

It's 2:03 at night and, as always, I should be sleeping, but if I wrote a single entry at a normal hour my blog would lose its essence.
It's been a while, huh? I've been very busy lately procastinating and I've done a lot of great things these days that I may talk about someday (not today). 
This morning (13pm) I woke up with a great hangover, but I decided to spend the rest of the day doing homework and studying because next week will be a hell of a week; there're lots of exams and speeches coming and I'm not ready. I did all I wanted to do today, so at midnight I went to the library room to get some writing done. I got to finish another chapter (2 chapters in 2 days yay) so I just kept smiling like a creep in front of my computer for some minutes when suddenly I got a message from the dorm line group. 

Apparently, we have a new neighbour.

And it's a fucking stick.

And it's alive.

I'll try to get posted as many entries as possible next week, but I won't promise because I'll be probably napping during my free time.

i need another story

Last night I stayed up late because Robin (my adorable German neighbour) asked me to talk on the balcony at 1am. Later, Ali (my French sister) joined us and we were rambling until ~2am. It's strange how we're in a place where there's absolutely nothing to do and every day random things happen. 

However, today was supposed to be a hard day because I had tones of homework (that I didn't do, by the way), a vocabulary exam and a presentation, but none of those happened because I woke up feeling dizzy as hell and yeah, of course, I had fever. I ended up staying in my room, sleeping and watching SATC episodes (what a great way to live life, tbh). Fortunately, my classmates told me the exam was placed for tomorrow because they didn't have time at all to do it, so it's fine.

In other news, I've realised I've been in a reading slump for 4 months and in a writing slump for 1 month. I planned to join NaNoWriMo but no inspiration comes to me and it's already 7th November...
Also, I want to read GEMINA so bad but I don't feel like reading anything?
I don't know, I hate the time of the year when this happens.
Just someone tell me how can I find my inspiration because I thing it flew back to Spain.

the land of tasty memories ☆ ~

Last month, I spent a week in Tokyo and I visited Harajuku 3 times! To be honest, Harajuku and Omotesando are my favourite places of the city. 
So, in my last day in Tokyo I met Sarah and we spent the afternoon in Harajuku. Also, I was so excited because this day was my first day wandering alone in the city. At first, we went to the official Aikatsu! shop, but everything was so damn expensive I couldn't buy anything.

I was kinda frustrated because the last time I was in Harajuku, I wanted to go to the 6% doki shop but I didn't have time to find it, so Sarah brought me there last day. I'm so grateful she did, because I finally could go to this expensive awesome place :') I bought a couple of accessories that weren't cheap at all, but they look so cute that I have no regrets.

2 new treasures ☆ ~
Later, we went to a 3 floors lolita second hand shop. I saw lots of cute things there! 
That's what I bought: 

This was also the fabulous day when I first discovered Q-Pot

After checking out other cute shops, we stopped at NOA Cafe to take some rest. I ordered this delicious melon soda float (´♡‿♡`)

We also took some purikuras!

Before my best day in Tokyo ended, when I left to come back to the hotel, I decided to drift around the stunning Omotesando and see how it looked at night. I also nosed around some shops like Chanel, Michael Kors and Dior.

Can't wait to come back to this awesome city!

there's nothing to lose, when no one knows your name

The truth is I need to go to bed RIGHT NOW, but I thought I should write an entry because why not.

Last night was Friday night and, in this dorm, that means p a r t y. So here goes another #blameitonthealcohol post.

Since the weather was way too hot yesterday, I took a nap once I got to my room. When I woke up, I was okay and I decided to call home and ask what's up there but, like the 90% of the "I'm gonna be a good girl and let my family know I'm still alive" calls, it didn't end well and I got pissed af. Anna and Fye were already calling me to go to Anna's room to help them to prepare the dinner and the 43435656 tones of sangría and I wasn't ready yet; my outfit was "okay" but I had AT LEAST to do my hair and my make-up and that wouldn't last 5 minutes, so I told them I'd be late as always. I tried my new bbcream on and I got surprised by how much I got tanned since I came to Okinawa.

Since Anna's room is next to mine, it's fine because I just left my room wearing my yellow slippers and entered hers like nothing happened. When I got there, Anna and Fye were already cooking and, surprise, Kasei (aka-chan = baby) was there dancing like the party had already reached its ultimate peak without hadn't even started.

Our martian 
To be honest, we were having a great time in Anna's room. The music was playing loud af and the making process of sangría was hilarious. 

+ 1 beer

Theoretically, the party started at 7pm at the lobby, but when we got there at 7:20pm nobody was there, so no fucks were given and we started eating and drinking by ourselves before the other people arrived.

+ x cups of sangría

Some minutes later, several people had already got in the lobby, so Cuqui-san, Robin (neighbour), Joseph and I gathered and kinda made our own ghetto while talking about cosplay, performances and languages. Somehow, we also switched glasses.

+ x cups of umeshu (plum liquor)

After that, we made 3 teams of ~8 people and played jan-ken-pon (rock, paper, scissors) and the 2 losers had to do kabe-don while everybody was taking pictures of them. Apparently, I had to do kabe-don with some Korean guy; I don't remember it at all. Also, Bee (the guy from Laos) told me to meet today to go to a neko cafe and I was like "ok, but let me sleep until 12pm at least or I'll be wasted af".

Since at last party someone drunk broke a door, this party had to end early (midnight). So Fye told me to come to his room because he was going to continue the party with other people and also gave me permission to invite someone, but it had to be only one person. At that moment, I was sitting between Bee and Cuqui-san so the situation got awkward suddenly and they were looking at me like "translation pls". Cuqui-san ended up going to sleep, so I went to Fye's room with all the other people and Bee. There, we played UNO for a while and, later, we played that drinking game in which you have to put a coin in a cup and if you fail, you drink. To be honest, that last game killed all of us.

+ 1 beer
+ x shots of lemon liquor

At 4am, I came back to my room.


guess who
it's me

So yeah, I woke up, I took a shower, I sent a message to Bee and he told me it was okay to meet at 2pm. At 1:55pm somebody rang the bell of my room: Bee and Kasei came to pick me up and then, we went to the neko cafe with Robin and some other people. After that, since Robin, Kasei and I were starving, we went to a Hamazushi restaurant and pigged out. 

It was a great day, after all. ☆ ~
