The Late-Night Post: Childhood Friends

In every romance story I read or watch, the element that never fails to make my heart go doki doki is that the hero and heroine are childhood friends.

Yes, I am a sucker for childhood-friends theme!

Maybe because we often change neighborhoods so I never got the chance to have my dream childhood friends romance. Not like I experience any kind of real romance though. *cries in a corner*

It’s just that. It’s flawless IMO.

Look. You’ve known each other since you were kids. So you know each other’s family. You can barge in each other’s room. You know each other’s quirks. Something like that.

Perfect examples are Special A, Last Game, Kakao 79%, and my current favorite, Wotaku ni Koii wa Muzukashii.

Well, out of whim, I told my best friends to live next each other and have my son/daughter be best friends with her daughter/son in the future and see it unfold. Hahaha

Shorts: Entry 17 – SNS

I wanna work.

Scratch that.

I need money. I want to expand my knowledge.

Seriously, it is ridiculous how my world momentarily stopped expanding because I still anxiously am waiting for those endless job application interviews.

It is frustrating seeing my peers posting their “accomplishments” in social media. It bears envy.

Like every teenager who frequents in Starbucks just to take a photo of her frappuccino and upload it to social media to show the world they are an elite, it feels like bragging rights. There’s nothing to see.

That’s why I temporarily stopped browsing SNS.

Meh. Who cares?

Shorts: Entry 15

Months ago, due to my envy towards my friends having someone to spend Christmas and Valentine’s with, or simply having treat them somewhere nice – In short, a boyfriend – I posted here in a Late-Night Post that I want one.

Now I don’t.

I realized I don’t need one.

I just need my 2D boyfriends with me and I’ll be fine. Manga and Anime ftw! Nyahahaha!

Oi! Your otaku spirit’s takin’ ya over, Cye-kun! Get a hold of yarself! Ya’ll be free of your hikkikomori (shut-in) lifestyle soon! Get a work!

The Late-Night Post: Entry 12 – Ninja Cutting Onions!

Lately, all I do is cry at manga and anime. Not those drama shoujo or josei ones but SHOUNEN! Not just shounen, but mainstream shounen!

I’ve read Naruto and Gintama. I just watched the anime Gintama covering the Shogun Assassination Arc before I write this post. But meh. Hahaha!

SPOILERS AHEAD! IF YOU’RE UPDATED IN THE MANGA, GO AHEAD!

In Naruto, I cried at:

1. Jiraiya-sensei’s death

2. Itachi’s death and his tragic past

3. Minato’s meeting with Naruto whilst showing 8 tails

4. Kushina’s death while telling baby Naruto her final words

5. From Naruto: Road to Ninja, Naruto yearning to meet his family

6. From The Last: Naruto the Movie, Hinata and Naruto’s wedding!

7. Of course, Iruka-sensei’s acknowledgment of Naruto as Konohagakure’s shinobi
In Gintama, there were lots of it while you least expect it because of its gags. Since I basically grew up while reading and watching it, I’ll just list the latest arc I’ve watched.

In the Shogun Assassination Arc, we’ve seen the old jouishishi war in which Gintoki, Takasugi, Katsura and Sakamoto participated. The three captured except Sakamoto who’s recuperating. Gintoki was forced to kill Shouyo-sensei in front of his friends, Takasugi and Katsura. Shouyo-sensei managed to say Gintoki his final words, “Thank you.”

At the end of the arc, when the war (present) was over, Shou-chan went to Kyo to build a new era that will benefit his citizens. At Kyo, he was poisoned by an old friend. His final moments were having Soyo-chan’s tea made for him and resting on her lap while the unsuspecting Soyo-chan stroke his head.

Yep. It was sad. Well, please ignore me. Hahaha. I am just reduced to a NEET now and my stories shared in my blog are mostly what NEETs and hikkikomori do–anime, manga, gaming.

Buuuut! I’ll cover what I did these past 7 months on my future posts. Hehehe! Ja!

Revival

Yaaah. It has been a while since I had posted here on my puny blog. Seven months is waaaay too long. One would think this blogsite is done for.

Worry not, my cute lil refuge. Your useless owner had gone through a series of huge decision-making schemes!

What went through these past months ya ask? Well, there was the ominous licensure board exam for civil engineers and the whole job hunting I am still doing but not really doing because all I’ve done is waiting for the two companies I would like to work at. (Hello, running sentences I always am notorious at!)

After the board exam, I went home from the dormitory and held my phone, changed the wifi password, read “few” manga series I’ve left (about 20-30? No kidding!), watched anime and movies, and reactivated my facebook account.

I think my accomplishment, aside from getting my license, was to finish Naruto manga in two weeks. Yep, right from its first chapter to the final (chapter 700). I actually held myself back because I might finish it in 5 days. Hahaha! Naruto is my spirit animal. He is relatable and inspirational and kawaii. In short, my hero. Yay! (Ichigo-chan, don’t worry, I still love you lots!)

So, blog-chan, you have to bear with your stupid owner again! Hahaha

The Late-Night Post: Entry 11 – Goodbye to You

For you, I am just a word on your sentence.
Correction.
I am just a mere word in your paragraph.

A single word you never knew a part of your story.

That very word you will forget or will never recognize its worth once you finished using it.

But, meh.

I do not regret ever meeting you.

Thanks for all the lessons and memories you shared with me.

Now I am a sentence. Maybe not for you but for myself.

Your chapter with me is finished. No goodbyes nor see-you-agains. I must do the same.

I’ll continue growing so someday I’ll be more than a chapter and an ending in someone’s life.

Goodbye to you, my chapter!
