Puzzle and puzzled

Last year I bought One Piece puzzle in Anime Festival Asia. It’s been awhile since I did my puzzle, it caught me surprise because it’s 1.5x larger than my previous one. 

I plan to build the edge that night and call it for a day, but instead I work on the characters. They are easier to recognize since they have more distinct features. 
And it came to my mind that, it’s okay to work not in order. It’s your work after all, so do it your way, enjoy it. 

Because I enjoyed it, I was immersed into getting it done and forgot the time that I need to rest. 

Which reminds me of what my sensei told us, hobby is something that you do when you have time to refresh yourself. So, don’t rush it. Enjoy the process, finding the pieces and building it.

I feel unsure sometimes too. But you see, if you have time to feel unsure, you should just try to make a move.

If that ends in a failure, you’ll still be left with something.

There is nothing you did that would be pointless.

Almost everyone I know is into Pokemon Go these days, and so do I. I was looking for some distractions from my Pokemon Go because I was so addicted to it and to the point which I became obsessed with it.

One day I was discussing next 2020 Olympic in Japan with a friend after watching the the closing ceremony clip. Mr. Abe was in the movie with Mario, Doraemon and other famous characters. There wasn’t any mentions of Yokai Watch in the clips but we know that it’s a big hit in Japan now. So, my curiosity about Yokai Watch ignited..

The more I play the game, the more I withdrawn to it, and here are some of the key points I learned while playing the game:

Rather than complaining that nothing is changes, she puts her faith in books and run ahead.

  • The older brother vs the council

A: Just shoot the soldiers! You won’t have the chance to eliminate the insurgents. We need to prove them that this isn’t something worth to fight for especially in this twisted world

B: Don’t you think the question should be how to live the best in the twisted world?
