One Year Birthday

I just realized today, seven days late, that this blog has been around for one whole year now!!!

YAY! Happy Belated Birthday Cloudy Revelations!!!! Here’s to another 12 months of otaku fun!


Going to Japan

Last Friday, I finally recieved word from Kansai Gaidai University in Osaka that I had been admitted to the Asian Studies Program. I am going to Japan in August!!!!!!!!!!


I’m using the high from this news to try and pass my classes this semester… especially my history class which is beating me to death. T_____T If I can just finish my draft paper tonight… I should make it. Now is the time where I curse myself for reading so slowly…. I wish I could really speed read sometimes but I just have a habit of reading everything, one page at a time. >.<


YAY! Also, I’ve already opened the blog that will be dedicated to my travels abroad. It’s called Cloudy Revelations LIVE in Osaka and you can find the link under the blogroll section. Right now, all the posts are in straight Japanese because I forgot to put the translations on them. >_< But I’ll correct that this week.


温もり – Warmth –

It is a curious thing on the campus of Towson University when the sun is high and the sky, there is time in between classes (or no classes at all) and the warmth of spring surrounds us all. Although I’m shut up inside do work I should have done long ago, I’m happily looking out the window of my dorm room. There’s a big field right outside the window and it is bustling with activity this afternoon.

A lot of girls are out sunbathing in bikinis. A girl, a guy (I assume it was her boyfriend) and their dog were running around earlier. The dog was really cute; he liked chancing balls and wanted to play volleyball with another group of girl who are now having lunch as I type. A few people are out with their laptops, typing with one hand while applying sunscreen with the other. There are two other groups out right now, one group is playing Frisbee (a very popular pasttime on campus) while the other group is made of boy doing something with a bunch of small, multicolored balls. @_@ It’s like they’re playing croquet without the hoops or mallets. Just now, a group of three girls have sat down in the sun to enjoy lunch from the dining hall around the corner from my dorm.

I can only imagine that the beach between the main academic halls is full of sunbathers too. That is how you know it is a nice day… the college students come out in droves. As for me… I’ll enjoy this nice spring weather tomorrow. Today, I must read and type, read and type, read or die and type or die. Luckily, I now have motivation to complete my paper and a 5 hour long playlist of my favorite songs to work by. I might open the window but there are lots of bees and wasps flying around because the willow trees in front of the dorm are in full bloom.

All hail the glory of spring!!! How long will this beautiful weather last? Who can say but… はれるや! LOL.

(note: はれるや is a play on words for hareru means to be sunny ^_^)

Whoa (aka Status Update)


済ません. 最近, 私は怠慢です.

It has been an INSANELY long time since I last updated. Thank you college life. This semester has been nothing like I thought it would be. I have a dissertation-like research paper that has been consuming a lot of my free time (and sanity) plus two other papers this semester and A LOT of stuff to read. On top of that, I’ve been working hard to submit my application to Kansai Gaidai in Osaka — by the way, I did finally get it out ^__^ — and I applied for a scholarship for said study abroad venture. When I haven’t been stressing about my papers or work on them, I’ve been asleep. LOL. So that all translates to not updating my blog since February….


Well, on the bright side, spring is here (though the temperatures around here can’t decide if it is late winter or mid-May yet) and there are only five more weeks of classes left in this semester. YAY!

I’m not going to promise anything, but if I somehow overcome my tendency to procrastinate and get this research paper done before its due (that would be a miracle XD) I might be able to do a little “spring cleaning” around this blog and FINALLY update the cosplay page. *crosses fingers*

引き続き倍旧のご厚情を賜りたく、切にお願い申し上げます. 20号年の春の季節に, 私は, 愛と学業と生におけるを頑張り続けています.
