03/06/2019 being myself

seedtime let’s plant seeds of joy. just to entertain myself. even if the harvest day won’t come, or i might not make it, i would still love to give myself pleasure. do not wait for being amused. (we cannot waste our time anymore, remember?) do it by yourself, for yourself. because, you are the one who knows about you the most, right? so, let’s seed something for the future, both near and far.   種まき 楽しいことの種をまきましょう。 じぶんを楽しませるために。 その種が実をつける日は来ないかもしれない、わたしはそこにいられないかもしれない。 それでもわたしはわたしを楽しませたい。 何かおもしろいことないかなって、何か起こるのを待つのはやめよう。(もうその時間はないの。)Read More

02/15/2019 girls

Is Feminism Man-hating? If so, I am not a Feminist as I don’t hate men. What I hate is this male-dominated society. Are those two the same? no. I think no one likes to be accused. I don’t like it.   For me, Feminism is taking risks to watch deep inside you carefully. To find if you have any gender bias. It is not about your gender. If you are man or woman or others, it doesn’t matter. Anyone canRead More
