    "Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! That’s good! You’re absolutely right!"

    Mr. Ooishi sneers and turns to me.

    There is a civil war going on here.

    This is hard for me to post but I feel like it is important. 

    I remember hating my face and hating my skin and looking at all the girls around me in middle school and on tv and in ads and feeling like I was a monstrosity in comparison. But I remember the first time I realized women plucked their eyebrows. And wore concealer. And foundation. And powder. I felt like I had been lied to about what women look like. After modeling and realizing when photographers asked for no makeup, they really meant the photo on the right. I started realizing that the photo on the right was what was in skincare ads and posted by people claiming in the caption to be wearing no makeup some of the time. The photo on the right is the bare minimum of what we expect women to look like when they wake up in the morning. 

    I think makeup can be empowering, but I think that acknowledging that it isn’t natural is important. Modeling and wearing makeup so often makes me especially feel like its important to sometimes be uncomfortably honest about how much of the media we consume is altered in some way. 

    Part of me wanted to wait until my skin was better to do this concept but I realized that was totally missing the point. 

    Thanks for taking the time to read.

  4. You think a child is stronger than a narrative?


  5. "He did drown alone in a dark sea. He became an alcoholic. He soaked his body in his own despair—right to the core—and he died in agony. Premonitions can stand for something else sometimes. And the thing they stand for can be a lot more intense than reality. That’s the scariest thing about having a premonition."
    — Haruki Murakami. after the quake.
  6. It’s his bad habit to shout out random stuffs when he is feeling uncomfortable. I hope I didn’t inherit this side of him…

  7. "Our hearts are not stones. A stone may disintegrate in time and lose its outward form. But hearts never disintegrate. They have no outward form, and whether good or evil, we can always communicate them to one another. All God’s children can dance."

  8. I think she was only acting like that because she was cooking up something.
    She’s not the type of girl who would lean on someone’s shoulder.
    I try to imagine Satoko being innocent…

    "Hey Satoko."
    "What is it, Onii-sama!"
    She smiles innocently and starts running toward me…

    When she comes 3 steps forward, I take 3 steps back.

    Why are you walking away from me…?”

    "I’m sorry.
    I feel like you’re setting up a trap for me.”

    "That’s so cruel!
    You’re so mean!
    "Oh…I’m sorry!! I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings!"
    I get closer to her…
    I can’t win over a girl’s tears…


    A steel trap?
    There’s a sharp steel trap biting my leg!

    "O ho ho ho!!
    I got you!!
    Are you ready for more?”
    She raises her right arm, and different traps start to activate.

    Something suddenly blows me up 3 blocks!
    Then I see a huge steel ball rolling toward me!!
    As I try to escape, I see a guillotine ahead of me!!

    "I don’t know what you were just thinking, but were you imagining something really bizarre?"
    I wasn’t…”
    "You’re lying!
    You looked like you were about to be crushed by a steel ball!”
    Why do I always show my emotions on my face…?

  11. "People get inspired to write, paint, draw, sing, sculpt, dance in many different ways. And there are many types of art. But the one thing that they all have in common is that they are all a sort of magic. Sometimes the magic flows from one’s fingers, other times it is transferred to the person who experiences the result. Magic has always worked in mysterious ways."
