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.

APH - diet mtn dew
This is supposed to be Nyotalia!Japan, and it somewhat passes, I ppfpfbfbfbt

There was a fanvideo someone made (I can't find it anywhere online, but I... have it saved...) to the song "Diet Mtn Dew," and that was what inspired this, and it was also the only thing I listened to when working on it.

If I ever come across the video online, I'll link it here, but otherwiseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

APH - penalty by Chibi-Reina
APH - penalty
In terms of all the AU's that Himaruya has graced us with, my favorite is probably Cardverse.

No actual story behind this, other than the King of Spades and the Queen of Hearts are having some sort of somber showdown. That light might just be light shining on them, or they could be fading away, idk idk.
