New blog status update~  

A few days ago, my internet went out! Awful timing, since I had to leave in the morning to see Tokyo Girls Collection up in Saitama! (for work) I live REALLY far from the arena (about 2 hours by train), so I stayed over at a friend's house who lives much closer. It was my first time staying with her (usually the other way around! LOL, or it used to be!), and the first time I've stayed over at a friend's in ages! Fun!! I think my immune system may have finally taken a hit, though, because my throat is hurting a little bit today. It makes sense, since there were 30,000 girls at that event! Surely at least one of them had a cold! O.O!

So...... anyways, I just wanted to update everyone. I picked the winner of the drawing and notified him/her! =^-^= Thank you so much to everyone that donated, whether a lot or a little! I'm still a ways away from what I need, so I'm considering what I can do... a lot of people mentioned commissions, and I thought that I'd never do them... but I think I will have to.... So, I'll take some time during this week to get that ready, I guess!! Unless I find a safe and legal way to sell my body, lol. =3 (j/k)

I know a lot of people aren't going to be reading this far without pictures, so I'll bold so that it stands out :)

I need your suggestions for post topics for my new blog!

□ Right now, I'm aiming to start my new blog on September 15th, the seventh anniversary of me leaving for Japan! Can you believe that it's been 7 years?! (I can't!)
□ Your suggestions here are amazing!! I am adding all of them into the to-do list for the new picture-filled blog!

Any more...? Please let me know what you want to see!! =^-^=

I think I just like your blog in general. Really, I like it all, diet updates, friend stuff, restaurants to go to, manga. I think I'm most interested in job etiquette, friendships and cool things to do in Tokyo. Also suggestions on neighborhoods to live in. I was in Japan this past summer, but I was in Kyoto so I only got visit Today once. When I move to Japan next year, I want to meet you one day!

Yay for a new blog! I like what you have already and hope you can continue, but if you really are going for a new one, I would like to see the following:

-definitely more about how you're a mangaka
-your personal creative process (I like reading about these types of subjects ;) )
-your art- doesn't have to be done often, but I like seeing your material from time to time, and I think it's pretty cool you're comfortable and willing to share it with your readers
-would love to see short story-equivalent type of works
-manga-style blogging of your experiences! though I think this one would be a lot of work, but I think it'd be cool

Even if some of the suggestions are not so good, thanks for reading! ♫

I second everything you've written down here, karakurimi :) Great ideas--I'm also extremely interested in all of these topics!

Also, your last suggestion is my favorite. I'm going to think about doing that for myself, it'd be great storytelling practice :)

I posted in your previous entry but I just thought of something...

-Food and grocery shopping in Japan.
When I visited Tokyo I noticed how fruits and veggies were SO expensive! I have a hard time believing anyone can diet without veggies... So how do you keep your diet going on low budget and expensive food in Japan? A post on this would be SUPER interesting honestly! Where you shop, do you hunt for discounts, etc, etc, etc.

All the writings done by you so far is really good. I just love the way you write. Doesn’t look like you need to change anything.
