(Credit for profile picture goes to sakimichan from Deviant Art.)

Fellow supporter of the Bishōnen industry and market.

I am mostly a self-taught visual artist but I'm currently taking professional classes in college. I don't mind chatting if you're interested. I don't bite much. ;)

Feel free to also shoot me a Friend Request or PM, I like to think I'm a fast responder to those. English is my native language but I can speak a LITTLE French.( Can do basic greetings and ask how you are feeling in French.) :D

P.S- My stuff under "Wished" are the current items I'm searching for or waiting to be released. As for my "Favorites", they are my maybe stuff, meaning: I'm currently trying to decide if I want to get them or not.(My preferences change from time to time so I may change my 'Wished' and 'Favorite' items every now and then.)

If you have a figure I want, feel free to PM me about it! I have a "For Trade/Sale" list for figures I no longer want so feel free to check it out!

I'm open to figure trades! :)

OMG YOU'RE ALIVE!

I'm kinda glad to hear that it's college that's caused your disappeance. I thought you might have been swept away with all those crazy natural disasters going around lately ):.

There's chaos going on in my region too. There's rapid wildfires 2 hours away from my city, but the smoke is present everywhere you go. It's so bad to the point where the news broadcasted that staying outside for 1 hr = smoking 4 cigarettes.

It's been so long since I've attended CRX, but it actually wasn't as bad as I thought! Panels often had guests reoccur at different times, so if you missed one panel, they have another group panel together with other people later. The lines were also by far one of the best systems I've seen. Instead of constantly scouting up to move the line, they just move you sideways whenever a whole section is free. There's also a good amount of artists and sellers, so I'm pretty satisfied for their first year.

I had 2 gripes though:
1) They had a sister con next door & if you had the badge for CRX, you could go to that con w/o any additional charge. The problem was, it wasn't even advertised. I didn't even know about the sister con until CRX ended.
2) Getting food was a nightmare. Everything is not within walking distance. We had to drive for 10 minutes to find a place to eat & then drive back to the con to enjoy the rest of it.
Overall, I can say that I would recommend going if you live nearby the area~

Stress can really get to the best of us. The company I work at also decided to enable live chat because the extension deadline for taxes is coming. There's a few sweethearts, but it's the bad apples that won't know when to quit. I felt like I lost faith in mankind after reading a chat log that went like this:

Agent: Can I verify some information on your account before we continue?
Visitor: Why can't you just answer my question as is? I don't want to give you my info!
Agent: I understand your frustration, but this is for security purposes.
Visitor: -provides name- BTW you're an insult to humanity.
Agent: Thank you, sir.

It's amazing that someone would think it's okay to even say that, but the agent who responded like that too was equally amazing for taking in that BS. -sigh- Just a few more days they say. It's gonna be quick they say. Please, send help!

My shoes also got damaged too from my company field trip! It magically grew a hole right on the tip of my sneakers. I only bought it a few months ago too. Ugh, this is what happens when I cheap out & think I'm scoring a discount. My hobby isn't going to pay for itself though!

I swear with all the meetings I have, I don't even understand how work every gets done. I spent at least half my day in meetings T^T. There needs to be a limit to how many we can attend per day. I got a caffeine and sugar crash in one of them & I was doing everything I can to keep my eyelids from falling down.

Crunchyroll Expo starts tomorrow, but the convention is showing me red flags of how unorganized they are. They made the schedule 6 days before the con starts & the schedule constantly changes even after it was posted. All the big names are on Friday & they don't have any other individual panels for Saturday or Sunday. I'm crossing my fingers that everything works out in the end, but I don't have my hopes up. They even plan a "Feedback Panel" to hear what you have to say...& then ignore it.

Tip 4:
Don't wait until you graduate before you start job hunting! Start job hunting one quarter or semester BEFORE you graduate. I've personally learned that it's a terrible mistake to wait it out, because it takes months to land a job. It took me 11 months to get my first job post-college & it was a contractor position where I might become a full-time employee. (Spoiler alert: I was one of the four people that were hired permanently...among 20+ people)

Most companies like to hire during the start of the year or early spring. That's when companies have the budget to hire people & can afford new equipment. It's also easier for companies to train workers all at once instead of having training throughout the year. However this may differ depending on each field, because seasonal jobs~ No one is gonna hire a tax preparing in mid-August compared to mid-February.

No worries! My internet connection isn't amazing either, so I understand if there's a lag.

I just had a meeting today where some of my teammates started arguing with one another & I'm sitting there all like, "Why can't we all just be friends?" LOL. I'm so passive during meetings while some of my other teammates really want to get their points across.

The company has a stock pantry filled with snacks & drinks, so that's also a really nice perk. Our department works in the branch office, so we don't get as many nice things as the main headquarters. They have baristas making you coffee on the house + kombucha on tap. At least we will be moving over there by the end of Oct! The offices are roughly 12 minutes apart by walking, but it's such a pain when it rains or when you have to run back & forth between buildings for meetings.

Creative advertising is under another section in the marketing department, but I don't really collaborate with them ^^;.

I've never physically attended WonFes, but I read all the blog posts pertaining it on MFC. The coverage on this site is excellent (:. I was incredibly disappointed in most of the figures showcased this year, but I guess that means more money in my wallet. I will be attending Crunchy Roll Expo later this month, so that's something to look forward to!

Tip #3:
Don't follow under the pitfall of settling for a low, minimum wage job for experience as a college graduate. Unless you're an undergrad or you need it to pay the bills, don't do it. I can't even stress this enough. I have so many friends who tell me that they take a job just for the "experience" to built their resume when it wasn't anywhere relevant to their career, only to be stuck in that same job 3 years later. People are scared of change & if anything gets too hard, they just fall back to the comfort zone.

If internships are out of reach, I recommend volunteering at a place that is relevant to your field of interest to earn that experience. Not only do you get a shot at getting hired by that company, you also get a chance to network within that specific line of field. Recruiters would much rather hire someone who have the right experience even if it's volunteer, over someone who has a lot of experience that won't be applicable to the job.

okami34 (2個月前) #23901814By hours, I was referring to credit hours. XD I still need one hour credit to become a sophomore now. I also know the struggle of not being qualified for grants. My family is the same way. (Sometimes I wonder if you have to be as poor as only having $2.00 to your name to be able to get a grant.)
As for scholarships, there are many that only require essay as a form of entry. The only downside that they're contests.
I'm sorry to hear that so far you are going into your business trip blind. I hope you can get some more information about it soon. As for you team member, it sounds like he might take a vacation day.
I also try to stay as connected as I can with my professors, but some take several days to answer my e-mails! XD(I try to visit some of them when I can though.) I haven't really slept through a lecture yet, but there has been many times of where I had to fight back my urge to sleep.


The only thing I'm super worried about is whether the business trip will be in conflict with my plans to attend a concert next month. I've planned this months ahead of time so I would be really disappointed if I couldn't go because of the business trip.

I'm still fighting the urge to fall asleep in some of the meetings I attend in. It's an information overload, but it's not relevant to the work I actually need to do. Mandatory meetings are awful.

LOL I'm so sorry for droning on about how work isn't ideal sometimes, but there are some really great perks at work too. We had a private, company wide event where we rented out a section of a public park for an entire day! Games, food trucks, frozen treats, drinks, you name it! Not only was all of this on the company, I get paid to have fun!

Btw, what were your thoughts on this year's Wonfes?

Tip #2: If a job is too good to be true, it most likely is the case. I've applied to so many jobs off of Indeed.com & Monster, just to find out they were pyramid schemes or really sketchy places. Even if you make plans for an interview, you always have the power to cancel it if you think the work itself doesn't line up with what the company claims it is.

You could also apply for these scam jobs just for the interview experience. It gives you an idea what kinda questions companies ask & provides real life practice to prep for real jobs.

okami34 (3個月前) #23460966I am on the verge of becoming a sophomore, but I need about 3-4 more hours to become one. I have learned a few things during my time at college so far, but I'm sure there's plenty I need to know. Learning how to deal with summer classes is my current struggle! Please teach my your ways dearest senpai! DX
Even if there are some limits for what you job is willing to fund to further your education, the limitations seem reasonable enough. :) Still qualify for grants and scholarships?
My mom had to travel once in a while for job purposes and her job covered the big expenses for here too. Where is your team going?


Lol 3-4 more hours? That means you are officially a sophomore by today! I never qualified for grants because we were stuck in that bracket where my family income was just high enough to go over the minimum and I wasn't ever smart enough to get a scholarship.

Our team has plans to head to North Carolina, but honestly I'm not sure how it's going to work out. One of my team member can't leave because his kid is due next month and our manager still hasn't reveal any details of the trip.

Let's start the college tip series~
Tip #1: Stay connected to professors. If you don't have work experience, but need references or recommendations from someone, professors are a great start! ...just be sure to hang in there for your summer classes & don't doze off mid-lecture.

Finding the first job is always the hardest ):. No one wants to hire a newbie w/o any experience, but you will never gain experience if you don't get hired! What year of college are you currently in right now? I'm not sure if I can provide any tips you haven't already heard of, but I'll try my best as your senpai +-+

My job is willing to pay $5k in education & training per year. How we allocate that money onto education is up to us as long as it "benefits the company". We do need our managers approval to deduct these expenses though, so I can't be taking cooking classes & pass it off as it's education for the company. What's cool about this is we can also fly to other states to attend conferences & events w/ our plane ticket & hotel covered! I haven't gone on a business trip yet, but I heard our team will some time this month~
