Yaaay, my first attempt at creating a Monthly Favorites post!!! Please don’t die of boredom you guys! I made a pretty collage and everything!
Turns out it’s quite difficult to find interesting favorites that people would actually find interesting, when your life revolves around things that most people don’t even like! I tried keeping the Japanese stuff to minimum, but since I have an unhealthy obsession with it, the word minimum has been widely stretched and given a whole new meaning…. O_o
Favorite Thrift Find
tarting off with my new Homer Simpson tee which I snatched from another Bulgarian second hand store called “Drehata”
. The Simpsons is one of the things that has helped me through some difficult, shitty times, so this t-shirt is the salt on my steak! Someday I would love to find a Moe t-shirt, as he’s one of my favorite characters.
The Demon- Haunted World
I needed only one peek at Carl Sagan’s notorious Cosmos series, to immediately become a fangirl! Needless to say, this book is one of my March Favorites. Debunking superstition, religion and pseudoscience, this is 400 pages of pure awesome! Even if you stubbornly believe that aliens kidnapped your grandma 15 years ago, this book would undoubtedly give you some food for thought and in the most gentle manner possible. Would you rather acknowledge the cold truth or live with the convenient illusion?
I’ve been trying to upgrade my Japanese listening skills and I found that the best way was to watch some good Japanese movies (besides watching Anime, during which I don’t have the slightest idea what they’re saying).
“Kikujiro No Natsu” (Kikujiro’s Summer) basically tells the story of a young boy who goes on a journey to find his mother that has abandoned him. Yup, sounds boring as fuck, but don’t let the premise fool you, this is no ordinary Hollywood mush, there’s no cheesy ending either! In fact, it’s safe to say nothing significant happens throughout the whole movie, but that’s the beauty of it. It’s fun, enlightening, delightful. Plus, the kid is the only child actor, that doesn’t make me want to strangle it with its own intestines!
This is one of those helpful books that I want to hug and drown in drool! It’s basically a collection of 1800 words you need for the Language Proficiency Test, alongside with some example sentences. It has an audio CD in it, so you can hear what the words sound like.
I got mine second hand, but you can find it on Amazon
What I love about it is that’s it’s super cute, fancy and has a very cool red thingy, which you can use to hide the translations of the words and test yourself.
This is so high tech, I had a mini orgasm when I saw it! すごい!!! *_*
This is a favorite, not because I made it, obviously, but because I can’t believe my fat cat can fit in this tiny box!
And last but not least, March’s favorite song: “In Flames – Only for the Weak”! I’ll be giving away my soul to anyone who genuinely likes this song!
So that’s it for today’s post, I really hope you didn’t die of boredom! Let me know which is your absolute March favorite, ok? ^_^
