The Sanrio Obsession Intensifies

2 of my earliest memories revolve around sanrio.

One of my first memories is watching the hello kitty vhs tapes that my mom bought me on our big 80’s TV, and another is going to the sanrio store and buying this magnet:

I think it came with a pack of gum too, but the gum is over 10 years old at this point so I don’t have it.
I was 4 years old when I got this.

I’ve always been weak for sanrio, but recently there’s been an upset.

My life has been completely complicated by one thing:


It’s the sanrio mobile game where you can take care of Hello Kitty, My Melody, Cinnamoroll, Pom Pom Purin, and Kerropi and good god I’m obsessed.

All of these screenshots are from one day.

I’ve become an absolute fiend for this game.

But the biggest thing that’s happened since I’ve started playing it is…

My favorite sanrio character has changed.

I’ve teetered between My Melody (+ My Sweet Piano, they’re a package deal) and Little Twin Stars, but now I’m absolutely certain that my favorite character is:


*audible gasp from the audience*

I know, I know.


I’ve even changed my phone wallpaper.


I just wanted to let you guys know about this new development.

I’m Gonna Learn To Play Chess

I’ve always found chess to be an interesting game and I’ve thought it’s very entertaining to monitor the politics of chess.

So I’m gonna become a chess player!

I didn’t know that there were chess websites and apps (don’t call me dumb for that) and since I learned about that today, I don’t have to buy a chess board and track down a person to teach me! Where I live, I don’t find many people who talk about chess. My high school didn’t have a chess club and if it did, I suspect it would’ve been a bit of a boys club and I wouldn’t feel very welcome.

I can’t wait to learn how to play the game and start playing other people!

It’s gonna be so cool, dudes.

Do you know what’s the epitome of opulence? a prominently displayed chess board.

Do you know where I’ll really stand out? A chess tournament.

Do you know what one of my favorite motifs in homestuck was? Chess

This is gonna be so great.

I wanna be one of those people who gets a picture taken with a chess board in front of them. You know the pictures I’m talking about? Those are cool.

I’m just so excited!

I’m gonna live one of my small dreams and this is a good step to start living bigger dreams.

I’m gonna do the occasional chess update because I think this is super interesting, so look out for those!
