A lot has happened in my life lately. For one, I am finally done with high school. I graduated this week, and so did all of my friends. It was a little depressing, actually, because I know I may never see some of them again. Of course I'll keep in touch with my closest friends, but I may never see some of them in person again, which saddens me. I don't know if I should feel happy that I'm no longer a high schooler or horrified that time has gone by so quickly.
The night before my last day of high school was the worst all-nighter of my entire high school experience, no, scratch that, of my life. I was so stressed out about my exams I had what I think was an anxiety attack or nervous breakdown. Or both. I'm not really sure if there's a difference. But whatever. After the last day of school it felt like all the stress of high school over the years came toppling down on me and I was completely exhausted. I was basically like:
So I'm glad that's all over with. However, I will miss my film class. Film was the class I enjoyed most, not only in my senior year, but in all four years of high school. I enjoyed writing every essay we were assigned to write, especially the last one. For our last essay, we were assigned to write about our favorite film and why we connected to it personally. I chose to write about Frozen. Best. Essay. Ever. I thought such essays were only assigned in dreams. My only complaint was that we were required to write only two to three pages. I had to restrain myself from blabbering on and on, since I had a lot to say. Part of me wanted to talk about Kristoff, Anna, and Hans, but I decided to keep it mostly focused on Elsa's character, since I related to her the most.
Another class I enjoyed a lot was Art. I think this was my favorite project out of all the ones I did, even though I ran out of time to do the background:

I've been watching a lot of Anime. It's all my friend's fault. I think the first Anime I watched may have been Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan, but really, it all started when she suggested I watch Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (which is now my favorite Anime). So I guess it's her fault I've developed a crush on Roy Mustang.
|Every time I see Roy in an episode...|
It might seem weird to crush on a fictional character, but hey, I'm already weird anyways. My friend even drew a mini Roy for me as a birthday present.
Well, now that I think about it, my interest in Anime really began when I watched the sequel series to Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra. Now I've seen so many, like Ouran High School Host Club, Attack on Titan, Fairy Tail, Kimi ni Todoke, and others. I've also been watching more Studio Ghibli movies, like Grave of the Fireflies, which is a very sad film about World War II, and Howl's Moving Castle, which I love to bits.
I'm really thankful to my friend for showing me the world of Anime, because now I know more about Japanese culture, which I hadn't known very much about before. She's also been teaching me some Japanese - she even taught me how to pronounce the first few lines of my favorite opening theme song from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, which is a really beautiful song. It's called "Again", by Yui.
And then here's an English cover of Again that I like:
I made another one of my friends watch Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood after I finished watching it, because it was so good. Now we both ship Edwin (Ed x Winry) and Royai (Roy x Riza).
|One of my favorite Edwin moments: "It's your hands, they|
weren't meant to kill. They're meant to give life. That's why."
|One of my favorite Royai moments: "I've done it again, I've hurt you."|
Well, that's what's been going on with me. I plan to post much more consistently now that school's over. I haven't been writing much in general, which worries me. I hope to catch up this summer by spending much more time updating my stories and as I said, posting more on my blog.
