A Small Update

I was thinking 'bout starting to write open letters from time to time so that I can get all of my feelings out that I haven't had a chance to talk about that specific person. With this my goal is to close all the chapters in my book of life that haven't gotten the end they deserved. I've already listed some "Open Letter" topics (Open Letter To My Ex Best Friend, Open Letter To My First Love etc.) and I think it's a great thing there's a way to get all of my feelings out.
I'm trying to make this blog a little more serious than it has been but I will still write about letters, postcards, animes but I stop writing about my school stuff to this blog. All of that goes to my other blog "Vuosi Joutsenossa" (it's all in Finnish, sorry) which I will start writing more often, starting with my travel diary which I wrote when I was in UK.

Postcrossing & Anime Update

So.. I watched Neo Angelique Abyss Second Age a week ago on Saturday (all 13 episodes in 6 hours while I was waiting my roommate to come back from the bar, I was too bored to go with them :)) and I liked it :) I just LOVE Rayne :3



I think I watched the first season a year or two ago and I liked it but couldn't find the second season anywhere (before now.. :3) and I loved it even though the ending sucked :( (I would link here an Opening but all of those I could find had a BAD quality :( So here's the first season's trailer:)



And currently I'm watching ToraDora! :3 A lovely Tsundere anime in which the main female character is a bit like me :D

"Toradora!'s story begins with the male protagonist Ryūji Takasu who is frustrated at trying to look his best as he enters his second year of high school. Despite his gentle personality, his eyes make him look like an intimidating delinquent, so he is utterly hopeless about his chances of getting a girlfriend anytime soon, and does not have many close friends either. After being greeted by his hungover mother in the morning, Ryūji goes to school and is happy to find that he gets to be in the same class with his best friend Yūsaku Kitamura and a girl he has a crush on, Minori Kushieda. However, it is then that he unexpectedly knocks into "the school's most dangerous animal of the highest risk level"—Taiga Aisaka—who just happens to also be in his class, and is a good friend of Minori.
Taiga has a negative attitude towards others and will not hesitate to snap at people. After meeting Ryūji, she takes an instant dislike to him. Taiga comes from a rich family, but she has moved out to live on her own due to family issues. She is coincidentally living in an apartment next to Ryūji's. When Ryūji discovers that Taiga has a crush on Yūsaku, and Taiga finds out about Ryūji's affections towards Minori, Ryūji suggests that they cooperate to win the objects of their affections. Taiga exploits the fact that Ryūji will do anything to get closer to Minori. She makes him her personal servant, getting him to do all her household chores (cooking and cleaning). Taiga spends a lot of her time over at his house, so much that she could almost be considered a member of his family. Since Ryūji spends a lot of time with Taiga, he has opened up to her world and to a side of her that most people do not see. The two also try to help each other improve the way people view them. However people they know from school start to become curious about their strange relationship and rumors begin to spread about them behind their backs"

Ryuuji,Kitamura-kun, Taiga, Minorin & Ami

I just LOVE the series :3





Can't wait to finish the series :3

And then to the cards I've received :D

From Finland

From Australia

More photos tomorrow (hopefully) since the internet is being an ass again D:

September

Nothing much to tell.. Life's been busy and it still is.. I try my best to get rid of the letters I've received (I PROMISE to reply to all of those!!!!!) Lately I've been listening to some songs on repeat in my room/on my iPod and I've been thinking 'bout how much some of those sound like my life as it currently is.. Just like Daughtry's September :)

How the time passed away? All the trouble that we gave
And all those days we spent out by the lake
Has it all gone to waste? All the promises we made
One by one they vanish just the same

Of all the things I still remember
Summer's never looked the same
The years go by and time just seems to fly by
But the memories remain

In the middle of September we'd still play out in the rain
Nothing to lose but everything to gain
Reflecting now on how things could've been
It was worth it in the end

Now it all seems so clear, there's nothing left to fear
So we made our way by finding what was real
Now the days are so long that summer's moving on
We reach for something that's already gone

Of all the things I still remember
Summer's never looked the same
The years go by and time just seems to fly by
But the memories remain

In the middle of September we'd still play out in the rain
Nothing to lose but everything to gain
Reflecting now on how things could've been
It was worth it in the end

We knew we had to leave this town
But we never knew when and we never knew how
We would end up here the way we are
Yeah we knew we had to leave this town
But we never knew when and we never knew how

Of all the things I still remember
Summer's never looked the same
The years go by and time just seems to fly by
But the memories remain

In the middle of September we'd still play out in the rain
Nothing to lose but everything to gain
Reflecting now on how things could've been
It was worth it in the end



As you can see my life has taken a step for the better since I came to the boarding school.. I'm always surrounded by people and I have the support I think I never had, which I never noticed before.. I have friends even though sometimes I feel all alone.. I know that I'm loved.. I know I'm supposed to be here.. And I know that I'm dear to people.. And even though people think that I'm aggressive and angry now and then I'm also extremely positive.. :) I think applying here was the best decicion in my life!! :)

I was photoshooting with Kimmy a couple of days ago.. I was crossplaying as Edward Elric (again) and we got some GREAT photos even though I was goofing off a lot (I was tired and bored :))






Take care everyone~
