In which I talk briefly about dealing with anxiety (and why it's never been a better time to be a nerd) and not so briefly about things that I love.

Hey, look: I'm posting again! And it hasn't been forever. I'm pretty proud of that. I really don't know why it's been so hard to come up with things to talk about this year. I mean, I have theories, but... well, that doesn't really matter. I'm here now. I was talking about social networks with Jill last night, and I was lamenting how LiveJournal really fell out of relevance for most people. But I love this place. Maybe all that's left now is nostalgia, but I don't care. This is where I post my thoughts, still. When I have something more than a tweet's worth of a thought.
I've reluctantly accepted Twitter as a worthwhile way to get small thoughts out. I didn't want to like it, but I do now.

So, this week hasn't been much to talk about. I went to the mall to get a book last Saturday, and there was some kind of mall event going on. I was only there about 15 minutes, but I've been exhausted since then. I seriously almost turned around and left right away when I saw all the people. I was emotionally exhausted all this week. I didn't get any writing done, save for just a paragraph or two last night. That how much that kind of thing affects me. But I know I'm not the only person who goes through that. People with high anxiety have good company, I think. That makes it suck just a teeny, tiny bit less. Occasionally.

I read a good post yesterday about what we think of as flaws not always being inherently bad. Everybody just works differently. If you embrace the things that are part of you and work with them, stuff usually turn out better than if you were fighting your own nature. I find that to be pretty true for me. Some weeks just don't work out writing-wise. Stressing about it just gets me in an even worse space for writing the next week. Knowing that helps, but it can still be hard accepting a "bad" week when everything was going so well. But I try. And when I"m dealing with anxiety or the exhaustion from it, I try my best to enjoy things I can do while recovering. (More on this later...)

There's a craft show this weekend I want to go to, which is always busy. So, I might be emotionally weary all next week, too. It happens. Things will come back together, though. Although I was not happy to see snow yesterday, I am kind of ready to not go out as much (which isn't a lot, as it is, but still). To snuggle up with my writing and reading and video games and Netflix all Winter. It's a really good time to be an introvert, guys. Or a nerd, or whatever you want to call it. There's just so much stuff you can enjoy at home by yourself. Or with people you're close with, if you're lucky enough to have some. Love stuff, by the way. It's fun to love stuff.

So, what kind of stuff am I loving right now? Well, the short answer is LOTS OF STUFF!!! I'm going to give you the long answer...

While I haven't been writing this week, I have been reading. After feeling so overwhelmed most of this year with "needing" to read writing from friends and acquaintances, I switched to reading some books I've been dying to read. I finished Mockingjay a couple of weeks ago. Wednesday, I finally started The Fault in Our Stars. Yes, the third John Green book I've bought, and I'm finally reading one! (I have sooo many books to read, gah.) Why did I wait so long to read this book? I'm already totally in love with it. And I pretty much knew I would be, from all the stuff I've heard about it on Tumblr or VlogBrothers. I even ordered a signed poster, because it was just so pretty. (The story behind the poster is cool, too.) Sometimes, you just know when you're really going enjoy something. And if you're like me... sometimes, you save that thing for when you really need it. Like I did on Wednesday. So, I'm glad I waited, in the end.

While I'm on the topic of VlogBrothers, I've been watching my way through HankGames videos (with and without Hank). I particularly enjoy watching Hank and Katherine play Super Mario Brothers Wii. They are my go-to videos right now. Along with - as always - catching up on Giant Bomb videos. These two sets of videos, more than anything, have been making my weeks more enjoyable lately.

I've been watching other stuff, too. I recently watched through Samurai Champloo on Netflix. I haven't started another show or season yet, but I've thinking either the second season of Dollhouse or the third season of Being Human will be next. Meanwhile, I've been rewatching The Vision of Escaflowne on DVD. (Did I ever tell you how much I love boys with wings? Like, seriously. Sparkly vampires are great and all, but give me ghosts or angels over them any day.) And I'm watching Degrassi and The Legend of Korra on TV. Neither is particularly thrilling me this season, but the way fans have abandoned both shows kind of scares me.

I've also been playing games. I got back into Skyrim this week. Finally started the Dawnguard stuff. And I've been playing lots of The Sims 2. Both games are go-tos for de-stressing. And they work just as well as ever, thank goodness. I've been all over the place with gaming for the last month. I can't even begin to list every game I've played a bit of. But yeah, gaming is fantastic, and I love it.

I don't necessarily love times when I'm not writing as much, but that's how I get to fit some of this other stuff in. I've gotten back to organizing and (with Joe's help) hung some posters. I even made an new icon post for the first time in about two years. So, yeah. I've been enjoying my time just fine by trying to focus on good things instead of the not-so-good. It can be hard, I know. Trust me, I know. But I'm mentioning these things, because I'm really grateful that they exist and I get to enjoy them.

And I want to thank Ben and his video for inspiring me to make this very long post, that no one will read. Hehe. I like looking back at my posts every once in a while, so this is for future me, mostly. This is what I've been up to and thinking. I love you, Gina (future me). I hope you're doing well, too. (And you have Morgan, if we're lucky!)

(Also known as: the other thing that has been bothering me.) I should have posted about this last week, but I guess there was a reason I didn't.

I had an epiphany at therapy. That's a major shock, since it doesn't happen often. You might think that's the way therapy is supposed to work, but it doesn't usually for me. My therapy is more of a stabilizer than something to make big breakthroughs in. It's like taking medication for emotional things. It might not cure you, but if you stopped taking it, you'd be totally unbalanced.

Anyways... I actually did have a big breakthrough last week. See, I hadn't been feeling like writing lately. You might think that's normal after the loss of my Grandma. And maybe it does have a bit to do with that as well. But I figured out the major problem I've been having with writing: I can never write it all.

That's right... I realized that there was no way I could write out all of my hundreds of story ideas. Even if I wrote a chapter a day for the rest of my life, I don't think I could do it. Jill says I have the opposite problem of most authors; most worry if they will even have another great idea. To me, that seems crazy. How do people live without all these ideas spinning around in their head? I mean, I totally realize that I have the better problem. It's much better to live with too many ideas than not enough. But I've been psyching myself out of writing, because if I will never finish everything... why bother? :/ How do I choose what is most important?

But that's not all. I also figured out where this whole cycle of thought started. Just... be forewarned that it may seem kind of stupid. See, Jill calls me a tuning fork. I just barely hit something, and I'm shaking like crazy. Everything affects me so strongly. Just a brief mention of certain things. Even silly things.

Like how last month, I went out to get my hair cut, and the guy, who washes my hair, told me about some rumor of the world ending. At 5:00. That day. I do not seriously buy into things like that. However, my Mom and I went a few different places afterward, and everyone was talking about it. I just got sicker and sicker. I can't handle talk like that. Even though I didn't believe the world was going to end, it got me into a negative mindset. Jill thought it was also how it had come out of nowhere. And I was out around people, too. :/

But then, the day was over... and I didn't really think about it again until last week. But it had affected me, because I started thinking if the world is going to end in a year or so, what's the point? I couldn't even finish one book and get it typed and printed in that time. There's no way. So, that's how I psyched myself out of writing the last few weeks. But I talked to Jill, figuring all this out... and I feel so much better.

Now, here's why I brought it up: I was watching Honey and Clover today, and I'm at a part where Hagu talks about having so many boxes inside of her. (For people, who don't watch the show, Hagu is an artist.) Here's a little of what she says: "There are so many things I want to do. There are an endless amount of things inside of me I want to make. They're scattered all around me. Each time I open a new box, a whole bunch of ideas jump out. I catch each one, wrestle with it, try to understand it, and swallow it whole. Then, give it and name and put it away where it belongs. Repeat that, over and over again. Just repeat it, for as long as I can. I want to open all of these boxes. But a lifetime is too short to open them all. I wish people lived to be 400 years-old. That way, I could do everything I want to do. But if I had a person to fight alongside me... if I just had someone." Wow, just wow. That's so very much how I feel.

I was told Honey and Clover was awesome. And I quite agree. It doesn't beat NANA for me, but it is speaking to the creative side in me that Hachi's character just doesn't have in her. Also, another character gave me some great lines to relate to in the previous episode: "Oh, no. I never wanted to be saved. I wanted to stay miserably in love with Takumi forever. And cry forever. And yet... and yet." That just sounds so much like how I was with Seth. (But Morgan... I do want to be saved now! <3)

HeH. I think Honey and Clover is destined to be one of my favorite anime! Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] jenthehen , for getting me started on it! <3

I have come to realize that I may never get myself to learn how to make fanvideos. I don't think I have the patience to even try. However, that hasn't stopped me from coming up with many, many ideas. So, here they are... anyone is welcome to them. I just want to see my ideas come to life. For some of them, I have specific scene ideas for certain parts of the song. I'll note them with * just in case you want to ask me about them.

Ideas for Degrassi, NANA, and more... )

The past few days I've been getting myself obsessed with the strange upcoming game from the Persona Team, Catherine. It’s about a man, who starts having nightmares about running up a tower while monsters chase him. On the other side, he is a “normal” guy, who is dealing with his relationships. It seems like there’s a lot of symbolism between his dreams and what happens in his waking life.

The guys at Giant Bomb did a Quick Look. which I've watched maybe 5 times. ^_^; When I get obsessive... But anyways, they didn't understand any of the Japanese, though so, I found someone, who did! Actually, before that, I looked at some other trailers and speculation. I mostly was excited by Vincent's cameo in P3P.

There are a few potential problems for me. There seems to be a distinct sexual side to the story… not sure how I feel about that part yet. I’m wondering how intense that will be in the game. Then, it might be a bit violent, too. It seems like it might be a game that reaches my limits in both aspects, but hopefully, it doesn't exceed them.

Meanwhile, there's a another problem in what the gameplay actually is: frantically moving blocks around to get up the tower before the monster gets you. I am not good at puzzle games. :/ This makes me really hope that Giant Bomb will consider an Endurance Run for the game. Please, please, please. The only fandom-type thing I want more than this right now is more NANA (either manga or anime). I think it would be a great mix between the Persona-style ER and the quirky "horror" of the Deadly Premonition ER.

Today, I also decided to rewatch Eden of the East. I wanted to watch the movies, but I felt like it had been awhile since I'd watched the series. The way too short 11 episodes series is pretty manageable for a quick rewatch. I'll watch the first movie tomorrow, probably. I'm really excited. I really love Eden of the East. Funny how I ended up watching it because of  one of the very things that would normally scare me off. And I was watching it the first time while I was watching the Endurance Run, and now I'm rewatching that as well. Crazy!

My Mom and I were going to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 yesterday, but the bulb on the projector died. It was going to be my 7th time, but ah, well... these things happen. We went to the Mall next, where I found a game I'd been thinking about getting (Shadow of the Colossus), but it didn't have a case or booklet. I'm really OCD about buying used games. I want everything. In decent condition, too. So, I didn't get it.

The day continued in a similar fashion. We had to backtrack around looking for my Mom's lost hedgehog earring, which turned out to be on the couch at home the whole time. Well, I can't say the same thing hasn't happened to me. I'm glad she found it.

There was more, too... but basically, it was a real bummer of a day. Nothing absolutely horrible happened, but I was still not feeling well. I had a little cry before we even left the house, when I finished off the NANA anime in English. I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. Now, I just want more. Maybe Ai Yazawa won't ever finish the manga, but there's plenty more left to animate! Please.

It's funny, though. In spite of yesterday being a total wash, I'm feeling pretty good today. Maybe because I've made it out of my 7 days of bad mood that started last Tuesday? Maybe yesterday was the end of it, and things will start getting better from here. Maybe the clouds are clearing.

Or maybe, I'm heading into more bad news? Haha. I guess we'll just have to see.

I've been writing a lot of journal entries lately, haven't I? I guess I've had a lot to say. Strange. Being depressed makes me wordy, apparently. That makes sense, actually. I guess this wave of depression started with those dreams on Thursday. I feel too deeply, and it always causes me pain. I'm feeling very alone and depressed. Truthfully, I know some things that can usually pull me out of a depression. But I sometimes, I choose things that I know will make me hurt more. Sometimes, I just need to let it out. My mom worries. She says anything that makes me depressed is bad. It doesn't exactly work like that, though.

I'm watching more NANA today. I'm starting to really get used to the English voice actors and enjoy their performances. The only one I'm still a little sour on is Nana. But only a little. Anyways, my heart is breaking open anew watching Hachi's pain. I miss my Nana. I miss all my friends. I feel like I'm not really apart of anything anymore. Nothing really depends on me. No one calls me to ask for advice or just to listen. I'm a good listener. But I just wonder... is there really any place where I could belong?

When I do talk to my friends, usually a Facebook message here or there, they say they miss me. But their lives are so busy and nothing ever comes of it. Sierra's really the only one who can find time to see me when she's home. I appreciate her so much for that. But when she's away at school, I go months and months without seeing anyone but my family. Sometimes, I don't even see my Dad for many months. My other close friend that I actually talk to... well, things can be complicated with him. And it's not like I actually see him.

I do appreciate what I have. Or I try to, at least. But I still wonder if it really matters that I'm around.

I really hope this entry doesn't scare anyone. I'll be fine. Well, as close as I get to fine. If I'm not feeling better by tomorrow night, I'll just watch the Best of the Endurance Run until I cheer up. But sometimes, I just need to feel for awhile. It's part of who I am.

fireflys_locket: (Nobu/Hachi Could Be - fireflys_locket)

I'm still in a gaming mood. After reading a friend's blog post, I decided to download Secret of Mana. She barely mentions it, but I'd been meaning to give that series a shot, and she mentioned it as a classic. I also played about 4-5 hours of Persona 4 yesterday. Partly because I needed a really strong distraction. Today, the distraction is NANA. Still slowly working through the English dub, which is pretty good (I love Hachi's English voice! <3). But it's not what I'm used to with a show I've watched through so many times in Japanese. (Pixel probably wouldn't like being mentioned in the same paragraph as NANA. Oops! :P)

I'm taking a little break from Oblivion, but last time I played, I spent most of my time trying to save people. I couldn't let Baurus die! It only took a couple of tries, but I hadn't thought to save right before the incident, so I had to start through the sewers again the first time. Then, after I saved him, I accidentally came out in someone's basement and was stuck. ^_^; So, I had to do it again. My heart felt good, though. I kind of like being able to make a difference.

However, my next job as a heroine was much, much harder. Saving Jeelius from the Mythic Dawn was a headache. He was running around like crazy. I could hardly keep up with him most of the time. I'd turn a corner, and there he'd be... dead. *Sighs* But he was traumatized... it made sense. And I just couldn't let him die. So, I probably spent the better part of an hour trying to get him to safety. I'd gotten to the point where I was saving once we got through each wave. Then, I just took as much of the attention as I could. And I, again, felt quite good at the end.

But it got me thinking about one of the games I got recently, Heavy Rain. I know the whole story is based around your choices, and one person can have a very different experience than another. Also, I know it's possible that your main characters can even die, probably radically changing the outcome of the story. But am I going to be able to let that happen? And if I can't... isn't going back to redo parts almost defeating the point of a game like that? I don't know what I'm going to do. I guess I'll have to think about it carefully before I start the game.


You know, I think I have a saving people thing... Even now, even still. I haven't changed that much my whole life. I mean it's not a bad thing to want to save people (or characters...), but it was a huge problem for me when I was younger. It's why I fell in love with someone like Seth. I wanted to save him. And even now, I can even fall back into that through a dream. Of course, it would happen to someone like me.

I often have dreams about Seth where we're friends. Or... something. It's rarely romantic in the slightest, but it's more than something casual. Thursday night, I had a dream where I knelt next to his desk and started crying. He thought it was weird at first, but then, it seemed like he felt sorry for me and tried to make me laugh. I felt awful all the next day. That was only one part of a string of very strong dreams I had that night. I also found a friend's soulmate and introduced them, and I had a screaming fight with my Aunt Jan.

But it was Seth that I thought about all day. I thought about weird things like when my old psychiatrist came to career day at St. Joe's and while I went up to talk to him, Seth came over, too. I can still feel my surprise that hey knew each other. And at the time I thought... I don't know, that it was a sign or something that we had seen the same person for help, even if it wasn't at the same point in our lives. But now, I still think maybe I understood him in ways most of his friends couldn't. Ways he wouldn't realize. And then, I just worry about him still. I think that's why I was crying in the dream. Because I'm worried... and even more than that, I still feel guilty for not forgiving him when I had the chance. And in the end, I still want to save him.

*Sighs* I've lost so much time this week. I've been trying so hard to make up for the time I lost sitting in a waiting room for an hour on Tuesday, then today I slept in way too long. :/ Maybe, I tired myself out from all the effort of getting things back on track. Maybe I wanted to dream about Seth again. Dreams are just so strong for me, and it's the only way I can feel close to most of the people I care about.


ETA: I don't want to leave on such a low note, so here's a picture of me in my Whiskey Media shirt I received today! <3 I still hate that Ryan is throwing up (gross!), but hey, that's what I'd be doing on a real rollercoaster. And the shirt is really nice, otherwise; the material is super soft. ^_^

I absolutely go back to my favorite things. I've read the Harry Potter books at least 3 times; the first 3 probably 10 or more times. Just in theaters, I've watched all the Harry Potter movies at least 4 times, most 7 or more. I saw Peter Pan in theaters 10 times, at least 3 times since then. I've seen A Walk to Remember and Titanic probably at least 5 times, even though I sob every time I watch. Genius I've watched countless times after heartbreaks and bad days. I watched my favorite Disney movies over and over when I was young. I'm surprised my Lion King VHS still plays. Though I expect that's common for kids.

Even some of my newer favorite movies, like The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Lost and Delirious, I watched my favorite parts over and over for a week or so, enjoying my new obsessions. HeH.
Also, though the question is just talking about books and movies, I've played Kingdom Hearts probably 4 full times, many other partial times. I've played Final Fantasy X twice. I'm not sure how many times I played Super Mario RPG, but I'd say at least 5. I really need to finish 2nd playthroughs of Shadow Hearts and Covenant. And I've watched and read NANA tons of times! I've seen every episode of Degrassi at least twice. I also listen to my favorite podcasts over and over again.

Basically, there are no limits on re-enjoying things I love. But of course, you do want to make sure you give new things a chance. You never know when I new favorite may arise! For instance, today I read the first volume of Mars, and I'm totally in love. I'm so happy to find something new to obsess over. Especially to try and get me through the coughing fit end of this cold! Basically, it's been tea and tissues and Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep for the last 7 days. I'm definitely feeling better, but the coughing has been disrupting my sleeping the last few days, and I can get really messed up over loss of sleep.
fireflys_locket: (Adam/Fiona Rainbow - fireflys_locket)

I keep a notebook on my desk for scribbling down notes (obviously). A lot of the notes have to do with writing, like names I might want to use for characters. And then, there are lots of scattered lyrics. Lots and lots. It's rare for me to actually finish a song. In the last year or so, I've gotten close to it twice. I'm trying to tie in my original songs to stories, if I can. that seems to help my productiveness. But I still haven't finished a song in years.  :(

I'm not sure why I have so many little lyrics that come out. I have no idea what to do with them. I don't want to throw them out, so I keep collecting pages and pages of lyrics. Oh, well.

So, Degrassi is back tomorrow! I'm excited ... and scared. I'm hoping that my Adam and Fiona will get together. I just refused to think that promo picture meant nothing. Now that I've written them, I'm even more invested in them. However, I worry for Eli and Clare. I'm happily in love with Eli/Clare, so something bad will totally happen. Couples never stay happy for long. :/ *Sighs*

But now that I'm into it, I guess I'll just keep "fixing" things in fanfiction. I have a few stories I'd like to write, as it is. One about Liberty. One about Sean coming back and stealing Emma away. (That marriage with Spinner couldn't possibly last. ~_~; ) And one about Jenna, believe it or not. That one's for [livejournal.com profile] chibisah . Hehe. But I'll talk about that one later.

And the last chapter of Three Days is actually finished, I just need to get it back. It took a slightly more emotional turn. Eli did it, himself. I swear characters are always coming to life and making decisions for me! I'm kind of okay with that, though. I like the way it turns out, usually.

I've still been watching Degrassi with my Mom. We're on Season 7. Getting close to being done! I also rewatched Princess Tutu, this week. I loved it even more the second time around, I think, because I was freed with the knowledge of the end not being the expected one. I actually love the ending, now. And I love Fakir. He fits in easily to my broken boy collection. <3 And he writes, too.
I also watched some of the voice acting extras. Luci Christian (who plays Duck/Ahiru in English) cried when she was recording the end. Awwww. I want to meet her so much now. She did so great. I wish there were anime conventions around here again. *Pouts*

So, I'm finally watching the English version of NANA. I've had it since it came out, but I've been too scared to watch it. Until tonight, when I randomly decided to watch it. (This is how most minor choices of mine are made: randomly.)

Anyways, I'm basing this on only the first episode, but I think it's pretty great. It was totally jarring, at first, don't get me wrong. And I'm sure I'll always prefer the Japanese version, because it's the one that I fell in love with. But there's no way I could dislike the English version. I mean, Barbie is in it. And I can honestly see how (so far, at least) the voices fit the characters. They don't match the Japanese version, but taking that away, I think it totally works. I could see myself adoring this version if it was how I first watched the show. But as it stands, I know it won't be torture to watch it, which was my fear. It's actually quite good, so I'm enjoying it for what it is. (Other than the changing around of ending songs, because that's just stupid. ~_~; )

And I want Kelly Sheridan's autograph. Like, seriously. <3

 Edit: It feels like I'm starting all over again. Watching Hachi and Shouji... I almost like them together again! How bizarre. I guess that means everyone is doing a good job, right? You're supposed to like Hachi and Shouji until... yeah. This is very strange, but in a good way.

FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is starting this weekend!! I had no idea it was coming so soon. I haven't watched any of it, since I really wanted to follow the dub. I think I followed FMA since the first time it was on Adult Swim, unlike many shows I started halfway in back then. This really brings back memories. ^_^

fireflys_locket: (Squall BW Photo - melodea)
I really love Eden of the East. I started watching it in a really weird way... I saw pictures of it and read a little about it. But what really caught my attention was that the beginning of it reminds me just a little of a story of Christen's. So, I decided to try it mainly for that ironic reason. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, but I totally love the style and story. ...Though I was a bit freaked out by some of the middle part that played out like a weird scifi episode of Law and Order SVU. o.o; Well, that's what it made me think of.

Anyways, I'm almost done with it, which makes me sad. It's so short! :( I need something long and really captivating to start up. Well, I still have Persona 4 and the Endurance Run for now. But I'm getting close to being done with the Endurance Run too, and though I'm sure I'll still really enjoy playing Persona 4, the main story will be over and all. *Sighs* I hate when things end.

NANA part 1 came in the mail today! I'm super excited... but at the same time, I feel pretty sure that I'm too used to and in love with the Japanese version to enjoy the English version that much. Usually, I love English dubs, but this is a special case. So I'm kind of scared to watch it.

I do think that the Hachi voice actress will be great. I mean she plays Barbie in the Barbie movies (which I tend to love, so shush.). And isn't Hachi just a little Japanese Barbie doll? On the other hand, she does Sango in InuYasha, so I feel like she can do the more serious side of Hachi too.

I'm going to try to watch the English version at least once all the way through. I have to give it a chance. Of course, even if I don't care for it... and even if I'm too used to the fansubs to even like the official subs (this was the case with The Girl who Leapt Through Time), I'm happy to legitimately own NANA. <3 I should really be doing that with the manga more too. Even though I hate thinking I'm supporting the people who translated volume 2. ~_~; Nana, man. Ugh. I really hope it's gotten better since then.
fireflys_locket: (Rin Fireflies - fireflys_locket)

Is coming back!!!

InuYasha to Return to TV

How did I not find out until now?? Oh, well. Only a few days off. <3 <3 <3 ^_^

I would fangirl more about this, but I must get some sleep so I can go to my second Half-Blood Prince showing. ^_^

That reminds me... need to post an entry about that, maybe? Hmm.

So, there's going to be a new FullMetal Alchemist anime soon. I'm very excited, but after watching this very short video, I realized I'm going to have to wait for the anime to be dubbed before getting to see it. Not only did I watch the whole first series in English dub, but It's just too strange to hear Nana's voice (Romi Paku) as Ed. Haha.

But that's okay. I think the English cast is fabulous. (Hopefully, they'll be sticking to it. - I would assume so.)  And this will give me some time to actually read the manga on which it will be more faithfully based. I have the first volume, I just need to sit down and get to it. (Though I really should read Breaking Dawn first. I must stop putting that off eventually... I just hate when things end. :( )

So that's my little random thought for today. *Wanders off*

So, it should be well known by most who read this journal, but I'll say it anyway... I really adore NANA. And I associate myself with Hachi to a, sometimes, alarming degree. That in itself could probably be a post someday! (Maybe some other time...) But today, I've come with a few pictures of my NANA (and NANA inspired) jewelry. Mostly Hachi stuff.

Warning... pictures of me under the cut... shield your eyes.

Yes, I know my obsessiveness is scary... )
