LOL! that gif explains a lot, like you rose from the dead? 😂

Wowww! Sounds like you've been busy and I'm sure it hasn't slowed down. Are you guys still short-staffed then? 😦 Wait if they are taking up to 10 days worth...are they getting paid though? Jeez, did you get your back looked at by physiotherapist? It's scary like one bad posture can fk it up. Your coworker sounds ungrateful lol like she put on the situation herself...🤦‍♀️ LOL sounds fun new people, that means new girls for you to meet 😉 HAHAHAHAHA are the new staff usually young people working as they're going to school? Or it really varies? Btw, any news on the girl at work? the one you were talking to often

I actually just went to Ikea yesterday LOL I'm trying to declutter my home so that it doesn't look like a junk yard...🥲 Trying to buy laundry basket storage so it doesn't take up so much space. I wish they created a small standing desk the ones they have are massive. On a side note, do you guys get discount when you buy stuff? I know some stuff is cheap already. And do you recommend buying mattress there? I feel like I can't trust their quality for that. 🙃

What is AMC's movie pass? 😦 Is AMC like another theatre chain? You said you grabbed Shang Chi tickets, how was it?? I'm gonna watch it on Tuesday so I'm hoping it lives up to the hype. I also am excited to see some of the actors I recognize from Hong Kong dramas I used to watch as a kid.

--

Things are work have been busy!!! I find myself working later b/c I want to meet like the demand of people. And also in health care, we're struggling with job vacancies ☹️ so I feel bad for the staff and want to help the recruiters as much as I can. Even though it's been 1.5 months I still feel like there's a lot I don't know still. But my manager has been super nice and reaffirming that I'm doing well and can't imagine doing stuff w/o me. I'm just super glad that she's encouraging and involves me in things. Can't help but feel a bit hard on myself on living up to expectations of people (think it stemmed from stress on my last job). And it's crazy, I had like previous coworkers reaching out to me how some have left the company as it became profit-driven and less for the people. So it's sad to see 😕

On a good note! I was busy during late August as one of my husband's close friend got married. I felt like my weekend was taken up b/c she had a mehndi night (the bride is Indian so it's like a bridal party) and a surprise bridal shower the next day. Let me tell you I felt so awkward because I've never gone to a mehndi night so I didn't know what to expect or the culture. Everyone showed up wearing their sari (super pretty and extravagant) but I don't have any friends to borrow from so I just wore like a floral dress. And then I also came from a family BBQ gathering so I wore sneakers...idk why I didn't think to carry heels or something 🤦‍♀️ it was interesting to see how their culture is. I felt bad as some of the bride's guests last minute cancelled on her so she was stressed and then other family members were busy grabbing food when they were doing an important ceremony 🤦‍♀️. It was chaotic. But the surprise bridal shower on the other hand was a lot of fun, we had it outdoors in the park so people were passing often and asking questions. The MOH and bridesmaid made it look like Pinterest style. Looked like this -->
There was also lawn games and sangria w/ charcuterie board. And I liked that it was intimate like maybe only 12 of us or less? So yeah then the next day, my husband and I went to their house to be their witnesses on getting married on paper (need witnesses for legality) and then an officiant came over as well. It was intimate and touching to see them be officially husband/wife. 🥲 And then later on the week was their actual wedding and it was small, maybe like 25 people? So that whole week my mind felt like I was occupied by their celebrations LOL

Then the weekend after, I celebrated my wedding anniversary and went out to Kelowna w/ my husband. The place where all the wineries are at. I was surprised didn't know they mostly had white wines. But it was really cool! I discovered this winery that had mead wine. I've never had honey wine before but it was so goooooddd and they had a mulled version too. But yeah my activities were pretty tamed I didn't do anything outdoor crazy activities. At first I wanted to go parasailing but then the weather wasn't great. 🥲

And then outside of that, I met my brother's gf for the first time and that was through dinner as a whole family. And I felt bad for her b/c I can tell how nervous she was haha. So yeah it's been quite busy on my end. Did you have any celebrations? Or birthdays to go to?

---

The fires have toned down but there are still smoke in the north. When I went on the Kelowna trip we had to reroute to avoid highway that was blocked off. Oh shit, yeah I felt like I was living under a rock when I later heard about the whole Taliban thing. It's really sad to hear about the people. I tune out of news as I already hear a lot about COVID stuff. On that note, we're actually implementing COVID passports here where we have to show that we got vaccinated when we enter restaurants/concerts/gym and pretty much anything. People are quite divided here now...like people hating on others that are not vaccinated. I feel bad b/c I have friends who aren't vaccinated and it's not that they're against but they either want to wait for results or that they don't want to feel pressured to get it. With the new situation, it's almost like forcing them to get vaccinated or lose your freedom then it gets kind of gray b/c what happens to one's human rights then to choose? So I'm all for people's choices as long as they still obey the rules w/ wearing a mask. Not sure how your situation is over there.😕

---

LOL I know eh like we know we should eat healthy but then we throw on junk food in our stomach hahaha. Wow that's good! I actually take digestive enzymes daily too before a heavy meal or sometimes carb blockers if I remember, to inhibit some of the sugar/carbs I'm about to eat. My husband takes fibre powder too on a daily as well (I have yet to build that habit)! I actually sell the brand of supplements I use. Would you be interested to try some if I ship it to you? 😮

Wow you really do have a sweet tooth. Brownie sounds so good right now LOL with ice cream...yummmmmm!!!! I'm a big ice cream/gelato fan so that's like my way of getting sweets. Not a big fan of eating chocolate/candy by itself. I think I'm a bigger savoury/chips fan. Sorry to hear about your uncle, it sucks to have diabetes and to take pills for it 😢 Talking about sweets, my dad has a poor habit of drinking a can of coke daily with his dinner meal. I also developed that habit as a kid where I shared a can with my brother growing up but glad I kicked the habit as I grew older. And what you get yearly blood work?! I don't even get that LOL I feel like you only get blood work if it's something I need to get checked not like a regular thing. Wowww you hater 😭 you just haven't had good bubble tea. Do you dislike the bubbles or taste?

Wait what does that mean you drive w/ intent? LOL like you're focused? Sounds like you drive like you're fast and furious 😂😂😂 Man you should've seen me in a smart car, it was a company car but I would rip that thing LOL the only shitty thing is that it's pretty slow when you hit accelerate. I drove my brother in it once and he was like why are you driving like this LOL I'm also not so savvy with the car...so you'll probably laugh at me but I struggled w/ the condensation that was happening in the car when it was winter. So I didn't know what to set the fans or whatever to, I was in a rush and trying to get the car warmed up and drive. So I had the windows rolled down which got rid of the fogginess and picked up my brother. And he was like why do you have your windows down...it's cold and he laughed at me since 🤦‍♀️

---

Oh shit, I aint' watching midsommer LOL I know it's a horror!!!! trying to trick me!?

I heard mixed reviews of Loki but since you said it's good, I'll check it out. I just watched the movie Worth yesterday as it was 9/11. I didn't know much about the victim compensation fund but it's crazy to assign people to a math equation...have you seen it? It's a good watch.

--

The tip of the shoe was flopping open and closed every time I walked. LOOOOL! HAHAHAHA you should definitely get new shoes for yourself. Do you have basketball ball player moves you really like that you try to replicate? I can't play the game but I do enjoy shooting hoops. it's funny b/c my husband said my posture is better than a few of our guy friends. I guess my high school basketball training days helped. I still can't imagine how I played b/c of how short I was (still am). The jersey would literally be so long that it's almost to my knees. And then I'll be playing against these tall girls who would like elbow me. 🥲

---
I don't have to know the fucker exists every 10 minutes. I get it, you're in a relationship 👹. LOOOL this.

Wowww supercon?! I haven't heard of it. Is it bigger than those comic cons? Hmmm maybe she asked b/c she wanted to see if you'll be going and maybe bump into you? Not sure why 🤷‍♀️ did you end up finding out what that was about? There's like no huge events here. 😭 I was supposed to go to a concert yesterday but it got postponed to December. On a side note about covid that upsets me is that think it was last week, there were COVID passport protesters infront of few hospitals to protest. 😢 Which I felt disappointing to hear and upsetting for the exhausted hospital staff who are working so hard to save people and yet to protest infront of where they are. I understand if they protest elsewhere but not in front of hospitals at least.

--

Ahhh yes...buffet 🤦‍♀️ LOL I forget. Idk here we call it AYCE. Well the owner made it part of their uniform to wear maid and butler outfits 🤷‍♀️ the server didn't complain about the outfit just about the music choice. Idk would you work there? LOL

YUUMMMM RAMEN!!! The nostrils were in full drainage mode after that 😂😅. ewww LOL there's so many good ramen places here if you ever come to Vancouver. I feel like ramen tastes best on a rainy day. 🥰 If you eat instant ramen, this one is pretty close to a legit bowl of Japan ramen.
Now I wish I had bought a luggage full of instant ramen when I was in Japan 😭 One thing I really want to collect is those Starbucks merch, have you seen those sakura themed ones? They're so pretttyyyyyyyy and they also have really good themed frapps

---

WHAAAT zootopia series!? I actually had no idea. I hope they keep the adult humour in there. Nope I haven't watched soda pop movie yet, did you??? I started watching Nisekoi as I haven't seen it before, I'm enjoying the light hearted humour romcom so far😂

Ngl, I stopped OP for now. I think the filler arc I was at was getting boring 😢 will need to pick it up again. I saw that OP is going to end!!! Are you shocked? Not sure if you're reading the manga also. Good news is bungou stray dogs is having a movie!!! I really liked the anime series.
icecreeaamm Aug 6, 12:24 AM
LOOL!!! Am I your child? 😂 My first week was pretty chill, I was glad that my manager is slowly looping me into things and walking me through some of the projects. I don't feel stressed at all (or yet!). The team is quite small only myself, manager and another girl (casual position) are working on marketing together. It's been kind of eye opening for me in terms of how the culture is like at work (in a good way). For example, we did a values sorting cards exercise where you organize a list of values into three categories - most important, important to me and not important and then whatever you have under important to me, you need to resort to either most important or not important. So you have a clear picture of what values are true to you and common themes. So at work we had a team discussion on it and what are some of our common themes. In all honesty, I did the exercise the night before like 30 mins before I went to bed and was not expecting a full depth discussion the next day LOL but if you're curious, my themes are (at least what I think) hope (being optimistic), loyalty (being reliable and following through for others), relationships (with family/friends/strangers), growth (in all areas of life) and self-acceptance (this is a tough one for me). You can try doing it also! Here is the exact same one I did - https://motivationalinterviewing.org/sites/default/files/valuescardsort_0.pdf.

Do you do any of team building activities like this at work? Or any personality tests?

I agree what you said about quitting and finding something "better". I guess it's kind of like thinking the grass is greener on the other side. But the reality is, maybe you have responsibilities you have to deal with or that your situation isn't actually that bad but just need to shift to a positive/growth mindset. I appreciate your supportive/sweet words and will reach out if I need to ☺️ Something I realized myself is my tonality (sometimes I sound like 😐), so I'm trying to work on my tone so that when I share things it sounds more exciting/happy/life in my voice LOL 🙂


--

Omg you take 5 hrs to respond!? I guess plus you're multi-tasking...I think I take about 1+ hr? I'm like focused on typing though otherwise I can't write anything or lose my train of thought. Before I was struggling with how to add emojis so that probably took me longer LOL I think I'm getting the hang of it now.

Whoaaa I'm actually shocked that you said there's a mask mandate. I hope the cases go down and it's scary that more people are catching symptoms of it ☹️ The other day my cousin-in-law's gf had to go to the hospital for high fever (luckily it wasn't covid). LOL you know Trudeau! But here it's pretty chill, majority of the people are wearing mask when they're indoors even though they announced mask isn't mandatory anymore it's optional. When you're grocery shopping, people are still wearing masks and obeying the social distance. It's different in restaurants though, I see that there's not much social distancing anymore and tables are filled like before COVID times. People are back to mingling w/ friends! And no one really gives you the death stare for not wearing one or confront anyone 🤷‍♀️ I myself try to wear a mask at work and if I'm in crowded places like the bus. Otherwise, I don't really wear one. It doesn't help that it's so hot and having to wear a mask doesn't help. There's smokiness in the area from all the wildfire so the air quality is pretty bad these days.

----

LOL let's just say I'm better than my husband but not an expert. Filet mignon what? LOL that's some next level stuff, is that what you cook? 😂😂😂 That's restaurant level service. Luckily I have an air fryer, if I'm lazy I'll just throw frozen stuff in there to cook. On a side note, friends of mine had us over for dinner and tried to teach us healthy/simple recipes to make at home. I was so motivated that I went to Costco to pick up chia seeds and hemp hearts to add to my yogurt snack w/ blueberries and banana vs eating a bowl of cereal that has full of sugar 🤷‍♀️ I also had buckwheat rice/grain for the first time! I actually like the texture, a lot better than eating brown rice 🤢 do you prefer to eat healthy? or you just eat whatever you want?

Wow that ice cream photo did not help me at all LOL I'm starring at this at like 11 pm 🤦‍♀️ I also realized I have an emotional eating tendency with bubble tea (or what you call boba tea?). I recall my friend talking about this like a year ago and I couldn't figure out if I had those tendencies until yesterday. I had a team meeting video call and I had to present something at work then this coworker (who I met for the 1st time) decided to cut me off. And then the perfectionist in me started self-critiquing so then I ordered delivery for bubble tea to "comfort" myself. 🤯 Do you relate?

---

LOL it sounds like you have your AC routine down for your car 😂😂😂 damn if it's that hot it must be difficult to even grab the steering wheel at that point...and aren't people more angry on the road when it's hot? are you an angry driver? LOL

--

Wow! So you can do all the tricks on the snow 😦 LOL don't worry I am always at the bunny hill, I can relate on the bum falls. LOL I don't know why to picture that is pretty funny. You being stuck with your board and people walking past being like this guy 🤦‍♀️ very anime like. But omg you felt whiplash? That's scary...very lucky that you were okay and you look like you had fun snowboarding in Colorado 🙂

About snow...I know since I'm Canadian and I have access to the snow I should be really good or that I go often. But nope, I can't ice skate (even though my name has "ice" in it). You can find me holding a cone with kids skating past me LOL I tried to learn snowboarding once but the instructor was busy flirting w/ another instructor so I didn't get to learn properly. I tried skiing and thought that was okay but still that was ages ago.

--

When you say shutters, it reminds me of like zombie movies where you lock down everything. 👀 Must be like a ghost town when that happens.

--

About the volcano...I watched the video. I guess we're doomed either way LOL

---

LOL your obsession with The Witcher 😂 but damn that's some serious business you have homework to do - listen to audiobooks and watch the first season. Just looked up the poster, I remember it was super hyped when it came out. Idk I'm not that into the medieval times for like shows with people. Rather watch anime but then again, I didn't play the game so I can't relate. 🤷‍♀️

--

HAHA yessss I love Florence Pugh she has her own humour, I was going through her IG and she posts funny photos of herself too. Feel like she probably has a down to earth personality. And yes! Only true marvel fans stay and watch the post credits. We'll have to wait for Hawkeye series to come out! I recently got Disney+ and watched "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier". It was so weird seeing the winter soldier with short hair...😳

---

That's cool! Are you really into basketball then? With copying the poses or having air Jordans? LOL I only bought one hula hoop, think it weighs like 2.5 lb? I've used it like maybe handful of times from the last time I msged you. 🤦‍♀️ I've gone to few studio yoga classes but once things are better I would love to go do some intro hip hop classes for fun.

--

The funny thing about the holidays you mentioned that America celebrates is that I do see Canadians celebrating it but its like what happens in retirement homes LOL when they have so much free time and need activities to do.

--

Wait what!? There's another girl coming onto you now 👀👀 competition!! haha I'm surprised that since you've worked w/ her for so long that you don't hang with her or have her number. It's nice that you get to know her more like having deeper conversations than just work stuff. 🤷‍♀️ LOOOL that's so funny but who knows, maybe for her she's like he seems like a good guy and I want to talk to him more. Damnnn she's Korean!? 😍 You go get that kimchi 😂 it'll be interesting to see where things go and maybe one of you can is segue into your interests and for example, she might want to check out the event/place/movie/food together. Ta-dahhhh!!! More connections outside of work!

--

True and what if friends make fun of her🤷‍♀️ I do know someone who's name is Mizu (water) but she's Chinese.

--

LOL I kept seeing Simone's story on my newsfeed but I didn't look into it. I even saw Justin Bieber post about her and giving her props for choosing her mental health to drop out. It's a tough situation but I think she is still involved in the team events? I'm just waiting to watch diving. Kind of sucks I don't have cable so I'll need to look up videos.

--

HAHAHHA you're so funny 😂 but you might need your cousin to help wingman you 🤔 wow even 5-star ryokans sell out...jeez I guess b/c you timed it with the olympics? OOO it'll be really cool for photos in Kyoto. Or maybe you can even find anime scenes and replicate shots of it 😮 new video idea right here!

Funny thing about paying someone to flirt with you...so the other day I went to this all-you-can-eat (is that a thing in the states?) for Japanese food and mind you the reservation online said dress code is business casual. But whatever it's summer, I'm going to wear whatever I want so we're dressed super casual and even customers were too. BUT the moment I walked in, the girl greeted me in her maid outfit. I was like 👀 what is happening here?! I thought it's supposed to be an upscale place !? LOL but anyways all the girls are in maid uniforms and guys are in butler...but the interior of the place looked upscale with the green velvety chairs and all. And then the music was playing Kpop 🤷‍♀️ I asked the guy about it and he's like don't even get me started on this 😤 b/c the owner wouldn't listen. Food was good but it was just so random?

---

I mean a good one I really liked was Zootopia! that one had a lot of humour that was aimed for adults, check it out if you haven't yet. 😬 I saw a trailer for "Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop" on Netflix, I'm thinking of watching it. Have you seen it yet? it's an anime movie.
icecreeaamm Jul 26, 11:00 AM
It's fine that you type long LOL I prefer to hear stories than short answers ☺️ plus, I appreciate the time you took to reply. I just started my new job this week! So last week I was pretty busy with handing over tasks to the new person (for my previous job). And then b/c COVID restrictions are lifted, I started seeing friends again. It was nice one of my friends came over to check out my plants and catch up. And then another friend was dropping by but ended up staying for dinner so I had do a makeshift dinner for him. I couldn't help but think damn I could've made the dish better LOL or like I should've vacuumed the house 🤦‍♀️

On a side note, MAL website is so weird! I wished the page was responsive. Your text goes over the box for me LOL

---

Jeez I honestly don't know how you can withstand the heat. I'm already like complaining LOL with like 2 months of heat here. But I do like that the sun sets later so you can do more things and also generally everyone's mood goes up. The heatwave is pretty bad, there's been wildfires every year up north 😔 so the gov.t actually announced state of emergency. I'm hoping it goes away soon as I was planning on going to the wineries in Okanagan. Do you ever get crazy smokes in Cali then? Sometimes we get it from all the wildfires happening. LOL! I forget, for Canadians we refer temperature as celsius so it's weird when you refer to Fahrenheit. 😂 Have you experienced snow before?

Nah, I'll just live without an AC unit. Save $300-400 and spend it elsewhere, plus it takes up space in the house!

----

LOL what you were disappointed? Idk the idea of hearing a hurricane possibly hitting you is scary. 😧 I guess you hear it so much you just get used to it? Yeah I do remember the hurricane Katrina that was bad...are there protocols like how you can keep yourself safe? See that's the thing about people going crazy to the stores, not sure if you saw in Japan during COVID people are so civilized they line up there. It's scary to think when shit happens, people are going to act selfishly instead of coming together as a community. 😔

Here in my city, we get small earthquakes and people are quite shocked already. There's been talks the past years about how my city was supposed to be hit w/ a big one soon. So who knows! The funny thing is I remember my parents talking about like if it does happen, we meet back home wherever we are. I was like how would we even get there LOL

----

Isn't The Witcher on Netflix? Unless I'm thinking of something else. Wait what, during a Black Widow movie will you think about work for a sec? But it's so captivating! I really loved Florence in her role as Yelena. 😍

I find myself spacing out and thinking about random things when I'm in yoga class. Like they tell you to focus on your breath, I'm thinking about what to eat next LOL instead of relaxing and controlling my mind. LOL you should try going for walks in the morning or at night (after dinner), it's quite relaxing.

LOL!!! Are you talking about those CrossFit classes? Where they make you go do circuits? Yeah, I don't think I'm fit enough to do that. It's like what they say, you workout to eat 😂😂😂. I'm jealous you can remain consistent with your workouts. So do you generally workout from home then? I was doing YouTube videos but then I got bored so now I'm just going for 20-30 min walks and if I skip out, I do hula hooping (I just bought it recently!). So we'll see how long I last.

Thanks for your kind message!!!!😩🎊 Yeah it's just crazy how things worked out and my ex-manager actually texted me how much she misses me as working w/ me was easy. But I'm really glad I'm not there anymore b/c the workplace was getting toxic and I found myself being so stressed. My husband said I was grinding my teeth a lot at night from the stress (a bit TMI - my period was skipping too). I get what you mean with dealing w/ employees, luckily I'm not in the front lines doing that. Just supporting the HR advisors/reps on recruitment marketing. It's only been a week but it's starting to expand my perspective on how many different roles there are in healthcare. For example, switchboard operator. I had to google what that job was lol

About the guy, who knows what happened behind the scenes to where he is now 🤔 definitely not sunshine and rainbows. I'd like to think that things will work out in the end even though it may not seem like it right now. Plus, I believe in karma! Whatever goes around comes back around.

HAHAHA Boxing Day. I think the only holidays people here are excited about is Canada Day (an excuse to party) and Black Friday/cyber Monday to get their shopping in. There are other stat holidays but people are only excited b/c they get a longer weekend or just being off work. Don't think we celebrate much here. Oh wait, there's Pride parade too though I don't think it's happening and I've never been one, would be fun though!

Omg you googled it! LOL wow so she's not a princess! Either way I think the name is a bit much.

Awww...the girl at your work may be waiting for you to take action. Also, giving signs isn't a bad thing is it? So she knows you're not just a "friend" but could be something more. You haven't given yourself 100% efforts yet to see where things could go with her. Isn't it normal to just hang out outside of work? Like grab a bite after work so it's not really hitting on her but getting to know each other more. Plus! More opportunity for you to see if you actually hit it off w/ her. And what if she quits work one day then you miss out on her on the what ifs. You can do it! Keep me updated~ 💁‍♀️

Actually! I had a high school friend w/ the name Emerald, I like it! It's pretty and unique too. Wow I actually didn't think about Emmy for short, good idea! Idk if you think the same way, but aren't you tempted to name them w/ Japanese names? Like it's pretty but then again it's weird b/c I'm not Japanese LOL like the names Sakura, Yuto...idk

LOL I didn't mean it that way! 😅 And I agree, personality and chemistry matters. Plus a pretty face LOL

---

I was thinking about that too! Like how are they hosting it and are there a bunch of tourists there. Are you watching the Olympics? I still don't know either but there's crazy videos where there's automated cars that athletes are using to get around in the Olympic village (?) and how everything is so organized/clean (not surprised). It sucks though that there's no audience and I heard like some top athletes didn't even join this year b/c of the pandemic. I only caught glimpse of the Olympics yesterday but there's a new category, skateboarding! I only saw the women's skateboarding and they were so young!!! A few of the girls were only 13 doing tricks and all.

Hopefully you get to use your flight credits on Japan! 😦 Damn you had your trip fully planned out LOL! Omg a ryokan, damn that's pricey too. I would love to go to ryokan in Hokkaido though! You don't have tattoos do you? Or I guess if it's private, then that doesn't matter. If not, is there somewhere else you guys are thinking of going?

LOL you know about the host and hostesses b/c you considered going isn't it!? HAHAHA jk

---

REALLY!? he's in your top 10? Idk I don't love usopp atm.😐 I was surprised even the side characters get development! At first I thought about skipping the episode as I thought it was a filler but when they showed Coby's development, I was like awww..🥺 I'm still watching the series slowly. LOL poor fans, two years with the same arc? No conclusion?! omg

I do want to see Tokyo revengers live action movie, the actors casted actually look like the characters! 🤩

----

Nope I haven't made use of Disney+ yet as I'm watching OP or Tokyo Revengers or my kdramas. Wait, do you get your marvel shirts at Disneyland then? I'm jealous how close you are and how you can go whenever. I haven't been yet 😭😭😭

Is Monsters at work a series? I wanna watch Luca, the animation looks pretty. 😍

LOL I agree, having an AC is luxury…I don’t even have one plus it takes up space and it really gets hot for few days. Just felt like buying an AC isn’t worth it. I know! People take advantage of the situation its like the whole toilet paper thing again LOL luckily the heat wave has passed but it’s been consistently 25 degrees+ 🔥(much tolerable than before so I can’t complain). Surprisingly, there hasn’t been any rain. Holy…this is what I don’t get, how do you guys deal with tropical storm? Is this like a normal thing? LOL like how are you guys supposed to prepare for this…👀

What! That’s what you think about in the shower?😂 I’m playing music 🎶 and practicing my vocals LOL (my poor landlord upstairs). I agree about checking out of work when I’m done. I try not to talk about it when I’m off b/c I find myself not saying anything positive about it OR I would just share interesting stories that happened. But what I found that has helped me mentally is going for walks in the morning. I’m not much of an active person so having a brisk walk for 30 mins or so has been quite meditative :) and less of a commitment compared to forcing myself to do a 30 min workout (YouTube). I was looking into a personal trainer and man…they’re expensive 😭

I think the last time I told you I was working casual job doing admin assistant. So I’m actually on my last week, I’ve been doing handover w/ the new admin they hired. I’m starting a new job next week 🙌 doing marketing for the HR department and I work for a healthcare organization. I’m excited and relieved at the same time as I finally have a permanent full-time job. I was kind of stressed out not having a permanent job and just going through the whole apply/interview process. And also because I was laid off beginning of the year, I couldn’t help but feel inadequate so I had to work on that and build my confidence. Asides from work though, I also make extra income by running an online business w/ my husband where we sell home, beauty and nutrition products!

Holy crap…wtf! That’s a crazy story to hear your friend, Andrew. I’m glad that things worked out better for him and not a downward spiral. But jeez, what a wake up call though. LOL why are you salty about it? I mean if you still hung around w/ him maybe you would’ve went downwards w/ him too, so you turned out for the better. I don’t even know any one close to me that does music that made it. 🤷‍♀️ I met one briefly and he was down to earth but struggling to do music full time though.


Do you normally celebrate independence day or is it an excuse to party it up? Wow…I’m jealous you can actually drink that much. LOL it sounds like you filled up your stomach to the brim. HAHAHA omg I don’t know how you still ate no wonder you had to deal w/ the aftermath. Yesterday I went to a brewery and had a pint, I was already struggling 1/4 way through. My low tolerance kicked in and I can feel my heart beating and by the time I finish the whole thing, I was getting tipsy.

Omg…LOL it’s b/c the way you said orewa was so random. It’s like the Japanese popped out of nowhere. Idk why it didn’t register for me that you meant that. 🤦‍♀️ that’s interesting, I feel like your middle name sounds more like your first name. Which one do you prefer to use? LOL I’m glad my name is what it is…my dad wanted to call me Anastasia at one point and my mom thought he was crazy and too extra. The idea was that he wanted an unique name that no one has. I feel like I would’ve been made fun of and compared to that princess movie lol and whoa, that lesbian couple though both C?! What are the odds, I mean sometimes I get called Cindy (which I hate that). So technically, the couple could’ve been cindy^2. Damn, things changed but did she remember you though? Or you’re just staring at her from a distance? LOL Wowwww MR.POPULAR, left right and centre w/ girls messaging you hahahaha but you never know, maybe Cindy has friends that are looking 😉

I do have baby names in mind! It’s kind of difficult like some names you like but then it reminds me someone I know and traits I don’t like or someone in the family named the child that name and you can’t really copy. But for girl, I would like Irene b/c there’s this really pretty kpop girl
and I also remember in elementary school I knew a Irene and she was super pretty as well. What are some names you have in mind?

LOL I’m so not tech savvy, I’ve been copying and pasting icons from your messages HAHAHA I still can’t get used to using Mac

That’s strange that they ask you that question and plus, I feel like it’s too early to fight in the relationship LOL isn’t it still honeymoon phase within the 1st year of dating? The girl that asked you within two weeks of dating is the one that is weird, maybe she’s used to crazy relationships…too much drama! I don’t have as much relationship experience compared to you. My husband was the only one, otherwise I was just going on dates and that was about it. What else have you learned from your past relationships?

Ooo you can start planning for next year! Are you planning to just stay in Tokyo and for how long? The last time I went was in 2018, I only went for 10 days and stayed in Shinjuku (didn’t know it’s the red light district wasn’t sketchy though there were a lot of host clubs around the area). I was pretty shocked how different the city was and not a lot of them can speak English. LOL the moment we got off the plane, we were struggling to find the right train. So my husband asked this Japanese middle age man for help and he just smiled and nodded. Turns out, we went on the wrong train and paid extra. That was when I learned, Japanese people are too polite to refuse to help lol. I was also shocked looking at billboards, I thought they were idols but they’re host/hostesses (?) The ones that sit at the table with you and sell drinks. Not sure if I have the right word. My husband wanted to go to a maid cafe and I said no lol I don’t think I can deal with the overly cutesyness. I went to gundam cafe (drinks was aight) and I’ve never really watched the anime so I didn’t get the hype. LOL my bad if you’re a gundam fan

Ohhh him!!! I’ve seen a few of his videos, he’s super chill. The other one I watch is Paolo from Tokyo, I like the way he films and he posts day in the life __ content. At first I didn’t like him with the crazy smile but I realized it’s just him and I got used to it LOL I’ve been watching his vids to fill my Tokyo travelling crave.

——

I agree the characters are well thought out. I was surprised, I thought OP was just silly humour and not much depth. I still can’t get used to usopp yet LOL jeez when you say the ep #, I feel a bit hopeless in catching up maybe in the next few years. Sure, I’ll ask if I’m stuck! Oh man..if you’re starting over might as well watch a new anime. Or rewatch hunter x hunter, shorter in comparison haha

Did you watch black widow yet? Actually I’m going to the theatres tmr (first time since COVID) to watch black widow so I’ll tell you how it is. Are you one of those fans that wear marvel t-shirt to the theatres? As much as I like marvel, I don’t remember the details of every character’s story. I just got disney+ recently and watched raya and the dragon, it was quite touching!

No problem! I believe you have a life outside of MAL :) I also replied late too, we had a crazy heat wave here where I could barely do anything (fatigue) and also trying to keep myself sane. It was bad to the point that people were dying, the emergency room was backed up, a town was burned down, people sold a/c and fans at high price and hotel rooms were booked up (people wanted the a/c). It was pretty crazy here…

Did you survive your 5 day work streak? Is that your normal schedule as well?

That’s true! I feel like there’s a balance, there’s some people you hang with you feel replenished and some you feel energy depleted. Holy shit that is disgusting…how did your friend think its okay to invite you guys over? Or did he think you guys were gonna help clean? LOL Wait…you still stayed at the house to watch the game!? I’m a germaphobe so that would freak me out.🤢 I like how you clarified who’s the slob, keeping your friend Steven innocent there hahaha. Are you still friends with them? That is some crazy thing you saw there…good thing you escaped!

LOL I mean you’re watching a game, what can go wrong?! Chill night with some beers and snacks…

When I do look back at the stupid stuff I did, it’s like embarrassing to think about but also don’t know how I missed the red flags. *facepalm* but I was lucky that nothing as crazy as yours happened. Talking about clubs, the city just opened it back up but at like 50% capacity so then my friend was telling me people are dancing like 6ft away. It’s kind of like…what’s the point of clubbing like that? LOL

I’m sure there’s other names to call it. But essentially I start getting red after a shot or even quarter way through my beer so I have to drink pretty slow (just to stay pink). And I can also feel my heart beating really fast. It happens with everything I drink that has alcohol. It’s okay, not missing much with the ciders its like alcohol soda. I’m more fascinated by the packaging of alcohol, like some wine bottles have pretty packaging. Idk if it tastes good but if it looks like there’s some tropical or floral print, I’ll buy it. LOL

Whoaaa what’s the meaning of Orewa? It’s cool though, very unique and memorable too. So you like to use your middle name, Brent instead? I’ll call you Brent then since you prefer that😄. I think I only met one other Brent in my life (except I don’t know him well). Cynthia, you can call me that! My last name is Asayo, taken after my husband but I’m open if you want to keep calling me ice cream LOL

On a side note, how are you typing this with emojis!? I find it hard to scroll back and read so I’m legit typing this on MacBook > Pages. Are you typing this on your phone!?

Ooo, I’ll check out Lumafusion. Seems like it’ll be easier to try to use than attempting Final Cut Pro. Have you heard of Davinci resolve? I saw my friend mention it and saying how it’s free and amazing to use.

Awww, thanks! I do like to post things/moments I enjoy but also weird/silly stuff we do (like those dance videos). He didn’t want to take part in it but it’s always funny to see the behind the scenes. I also enjoy dancing (not that I’m great at it). But yeah the account may paint a successful relationship but there’s also the bad/ugly behind (that we had to work on so nothing’s perfect). And yes! I’ve been trying to improve my scenic shots, helps to appreciate the small things more. I was thinking of buying disposable camera just to play around and be more open (?) With taking any shots without trying to filter them. I really love the Japan shots I took, I miss Tokyo T_T I’ve been on a binge on Youtube watching Tokyo travels.

Let me know what you think of Horimiya once you start! OOO I did see the trailer for Chainsaw Man, it’s one of the top mangas too. I’m excited to watch it even though I know it’ll be quite gory.

DUDE!!! You didn’t tell me I was going to tear up from watching OP wth. I was tearing up every other ep LOL I wasn’t expecting to get the feels T_T all their stories are so touching omg and one thing I find fascinating is Luffy/Zoro’s dynamic and how much trust they have with one another. Like Zoro does whatever Luffy does. I’m on ep 38 so I’m at the fishermen part and finding out nami’s story. What’s the latest ep # for OP?

—-

Wow 6% not bad at all. LOL what are the coincidences where the game is also on sale hahahah

No biggie! Just thought I would share the lo-fi playlists if you’re feeling it one day. Since it’s summer, I’ve been listening to more upbeat stuff.
icecreeaamm Jun 24, 8:12 PM
Whoooaaa that's a first. So you forced yourself b/c of peer pressure as well and to fit in socially? I only drink once in a while and can't drink much or else I get the asian glow and now I realize that I'm actually allergic lol I just drink less now and enjoying wine more now. No hard liquor for me bleh LOL you're hilarious, pina colada is definitely yummy! I'm guessing you like ciders then? Or have you tried bellini? One of my favs, it's like a slushy drink with rum, sparkling wine, peach and sangria. Looks like this > https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/289426713531731745/

It's good you realized it early to filter out people who aren't positive influence in your life. I had to learn to stop talking to certain people too just realizing when I stopped trying, they stopped too. Felt like i was one-sided too much.

LOOOLL!!!! well if i was some random I probably would be those instagirls with thousands of followers but I don't. I think it's also hard b/c we didn't exchange names LOL what's your first name? Yeah I change every now and then with setting my profile private or not. It's weird I realized when I do set it as private, I get a bunch of fake bots messaging me it'll be like steve012 or something with 100ish followers and some photos trying to hit me up. So it made me worry someone was gonna steal my photos and do the same.

Not sure if you saw my comment but my husband liked your video too and thought you'll be a funny guy to hang with haha. Where do you even teach yourself to learn that? I'm thinking of learning how to edit videos but don't even know where to start like it doesn't have to be fancy. Ahhh, I see so that's your rockstar life LOL wait so how does my IG paint a picture to you?

-----

Hmm i didn't think that deeply about Mikasa and I guess we'll find out. I'm more curious to know if Eren likes her at all or his mind is too busy to even think about that.

I watch new anime maybe just the hype ones to see what's up and I'm open to most genres (I was surprised myself I watched a sports genre - haikyuu) except horror or anything that deals with sexual assault freaks me out. I guess i was traumatized from watching a drama as a kid so I can't. Wow lovely complex...I think i only read the manga didn't watch it. Can't remember now. Maybe you'll like horimiya! The animation is beautiful and the characters are likeable just don't watch the OVA.

Btw, I started watching one piece. I recall watching few episodes here and there b/c it aired on TV dubbed when I was a teen. I was surprised that's how luffy met zoro.

----

LOL gameboy advanced, oh my! Did you have a Nintendo ds as well? HAHAHHA you know taxes, it's like 12% here. What about you? I have no idea about taxes in the states.

YES lofi girl LOL that's a classic, think she was the first one i saw. I think the playlist is on Spotify too > https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0vvXsWCC9xrXsKd4FyS8kM?si=6d9f14c071af472f I listen to this one. I like this too - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssZifjuyKCk or coffee shop vibes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5KAN9_CzSA.
icecreeaamm Jun 20, 3:53 PM
I think I get what you mean, it's just you're more open now. LOL I'll call you out for lying if you said there were no physical expectations like that's the first attraction then personality after. I'm past that point too with the constant drinking...that was like an early 20s phase definitely don't want that in your partner. Ohhhh shit LOL why didn't she say anything!?! She gave you mix signals...at least now you know LOL but isn't it confusing though like some girls wear rings on that finger or some don't even wear it when they're married. It's a funny story to tell now LOL! Wait...so did aria like you!? :O

Your efforts will be recognized! Wow, I just checked out your first video it's pretty funny and really well done. I can see you getting popular on TikTok plus it's creative too. You look like you party lots at least in your past photos hahaha maybe start small with a short clip? versus creating a well done video on ig. I'm curious to know if that guy actually works/worked at ikea. Btw, I followed you!

---

Ohhh I see, hmm maybe I'll just stick with the anime for OP to avoid movie spoilers.

But don't you think Mikasa likes Eren though not only out of her obligation? Did you ever see the live action AoT? LOL I remember watching it a while back and there was some weird shit going on with Mikasa and Levi i think.

Okay, I still have to watch BtW on my list. I recently finished horimiya, romcom as I was looking for something light to watch. The animation is so pretty and the characters were funny too. Before that, I was watching twin star exorcist which had an interesting storyline but then after I stopped I couldn't find myself picking it up again to finish it.

---

Nope, I haven't gamed in ages. The last time I played was with friends on steam playing left 4 dead and mind you, I'm not great at it LOL so I'll be the one screaming in the calls for help. Actually I lied, I played overcooked last haha.

The game looks so cute!! Wow the game has been around for a while. I've never heard/seen the game. The music I like! Something I would leave on as the background or lo-fi playlists. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFm6rbA5BD8 it's so relaxing and pleasing to look at
icecreeaamm Jun 13, 8:52 PM
Haha yeah it's always interesting whenever i share w/ people how we met but mind you, we used tinder in its early days before the super swipe (?) came in and all the cash grabbing options. Ahhh that makes sense, you want to see how they're like first. I didn't know I would meet the one on the app either, I was just looking for a relationship (not the best platform for it) but didn't have any options around me. And the funny thing is, when we first met each other we didn't look like our photos either haha like I was scrubbed out from studying as I was still in school then and he came riding his motorcycle in nursing gear and moustache. So what are some traits you're looking for in a girl anyways?

I can't remember it maybe miami that I remember early covid days the young peeps were partying it up. Yeah it'll be tough to get people to follow the mask rules as everything is kind of done w/ the pandemic. :S at least people are getting vaccinated?

That's interesting! Did you start at Ikea as a sales associate and then worked your way up? That's cool though that there are growth opportunities. I feel like not a lot of people go into the career they studied for anyways. If you didn't stay, where would you have gone to do? LOL I wish I had that many steps, I'm jealous. My goal is to do 10K steps haha I've only been walking from my dining table to the kitchen or to the washroom *facepalm* but I am trying to follow 10 min workout youtube vids. I recently bought a bike as I needed to learn how to ride one (don't judge lol). Btw have you seen the ikea tiktok guy that rants about customers? the guy is pretty funny, I'll send it if you haven't seen it.

----

LOL fine...you make OP sound better than I thought. If it's bad, I'm going to hold you accountable! There's one piece movies too right? Does it connect to the anime or side stories?

LOL I never saw games of thrones after hearing the incest stuff but I get what you mean how they killed off characters. True, I forget they're human b/c apparently their vertical equipment should be super heavy and then there's like levi and mikasa just jumping around no big deal LOL the character that bothers me is eren b/c i can't understand him w/ the change lol but I guess I have to wait for next season

So much to watch!!!!! I just looked up burn the witch, why is it only 3 eps so short! Does the story even feel complete?
icecreeaamm Jun 10, 9:58 PM
LOOOL okay, the odds of that are really low. I think my chances would be higher if I said maple story. But no, I met him on Tinder (classic) haha

Whoa so quick! I'm still waiting on my second dose, supposedly this month. Where are you located? Are restrictions lifted then? Same! I'm in Vancouver and restrictions are still here to stay, people are still wearing masks and we finally can gather with up to 6 people in the house now. It really affected the restaurants as they weren't able to dine-in but allowed patio seating (kind of stupid really). But yeah, I'm lenient if I'm around people I know but if it's strangers I'm a bit hesitant. I kind of like that people are wearing masks, especially on the bus.

LOL! I think it's balance right? I'm glad you're healthy and you still got your job. What do you do for work anyway? I think for myself I got to focus on self-care and just taking time to go for walks or work out at home.

----

Is One piece full of fillers though? If it's like bleach then I can't deal with that. LOL I don't think I can watch anything dubbed except for adventures of jackie chan.

WHAAAT! I'm shocked you hated AoT, I was surprised how different the anime was and scary at the same time. So you read the manga as well? I was sad when the potato girl died T_T

I think maybe b/c the anime was drawn so well? I really like nezuko, just the way she's drawn. She's pretty! I remember reading that, I was shocked LOL the movie wasn't that great...felt like it was lacking character development really except the fire guy lol (whatever his name is)

Isn't jojo bizarre an old anime? YES! I saw my hero academia, you know at first I thought it was ridiculous but I started to like it after haha. LOL I think if you want to finish naruto you gotta rewatch from the beginning. Nope I haven't heard, what's the genre for burn the witch? I just started tokyo revengers to see what the hype is about. So far the main guy seems like a support to me.
icecreeaamm Jun 2, 9:47 PM
Same!!!! I think I was talking to you the most back then as well.

Thanks doeman! :) It's going to be three years coming August. Guess where we met! I get what you mean, I have friends in the same boat and it's difficult when you can't hang out in person. Did you get vaccinated yet? How was dealing w/ the pandemic on your end?

Holy...yeah I can never get myself to start One Piece b/c I'll have to binge it. OOO! AOT was so good but it was definitely a cliffhanger as I didn't read the manga, I was left pretty confused. What about demon slayer? Did you see the movie? I feel like it's really hard to find good animes with heroes like Naruto or Gon as the main.
icecreeaamm May 30, 4:21 PM
Hahaha I know!!! I was looking at my profile and just seeing the number of comments we had back and forth was crazy. What's this "important" anime you're watching?

I haven't been watching as much anime as before. I'm thinking of watching jujutsu kaisen but I'm going to wait until it comes out on Netflix (in a few days).

Well!!! First off, I'm married LOL is that big enough news? what about yourself?! outside of MAL

icecreeaamm May 30, 3:39 PM
hey! just hoping to reconnect :) I'm happy to see you're still alive on MAL. How have you been doing?
TechDragon Nov 24, 2014 4:22 PM
Happy Birthday!!!
Vyxria Apr 16, 2014 12:05 AM
Take a second and rejoice! Log Horizon was your 420th anime completed! I wonder if virtual kush exists :P
