So I made a Japan-biased blog not too long ago where I simply just reblog Japan things and share some photos of my experience there from March. Here is the main blog, and anything tagged ochatravels are my personal posts. :> 

I was always iffy on where I really wanted to be in the future, but after visiting, I realized I really do want to try for Japan. Back when I was itsy bitsy, it was a dream of mine to live there in the future, and it faded as I grew older, for obvious adult reasons, like living expenses, what can I even DO there at my level besides teach, etc. I have family there, as well as a friend, so while I shouldn't have been too worried about being "alone" there, I wanted to be able to do things on my own. 

At my level, the best I can do now is teach, so that is what I'm going to try for for a bit and see where it gets me in terms of whether or not I flub it up. My hopes aren't too high, but I still am going to try my hardest. I need to strengthen my Japanese-- in reality, I really would like to do translations over teach, but my language skills at this point are still pretty poor due to lack of intense studying and proper exposure.

For now, I am aiming for a short New Year's trip back to Japan for 2015 going into 2016. Because I have an intense wanderlust that will never be calmed, I hope to have a Summer 2016 trip to Iceland. I am trying to learn at least some Icelandic before then omg ;;;

Fun fact: I often find myself overwhelmed with an intense love for Japan that cannot be explained. There might be a little crying involved because of the overwhelmz. I might just marry Japan. Please. Somehow. Japan is the only one for me.

FFX - So hysa ec Rikku by Chibi-Reina
FFX - So hysa ec Rikku
I'm still trying to figure out a specific coloring style on my own via Photoshop, which resulted in straying from my own art style orz I succeeded in coloring only with the nose, PRETTY MUCH

I will never not be in the mood for FFX. With FFXV ever so slowly being a thing, look forward to fanart for that bc I'm a Squenix sucker
