Fellow supporter of the Bishōnen industry and market.

I am mostly a self-taught visual artist but I'm currently taking professional classes in college. I don't mind chatting if you're interested. I don't bite much. ;)

Feel free to also shoot me a Friend Request or PM, I like to think I'm a fast responder to those. English is my native language but I can speak a LITTLE French.( Can do basic greetings and ask how you are feeling in French.) :D

P.S- My stuff under "Wished" are the current items I'm searching for or waiting to be released. As for my "Favorites", they are my maybe stuff, meaning: I'm currently trying to decide if I want to get them or not.(My preferences change from time to time so I may change my 'Wished' and 'Favorite' items every now and then.)

If you have a figure I want, feel free to PM me about it! I have a "For Trade/Sale" list for figures I no longer want so feel free to check it out!

I'm open to figure trades! :)

My shoes also got damaged too from my company field trip! It magically grew a hole right on the tip of my sneakers. I only bought it a few months ago too. Ugh, this is what happens when I cheap out & think I'm scoring a discount. My hobby isn't going to pay for itself though!

I swear with all the meetings I have, I don't even understand how work every gets done. I spent at least half my day in meetings T^T. There needs to be a limit to how many we can attend per day. I got a caffeine and sugar crash in one of them & I was doing everything I can to keep my eyelids from falling down.

Crunchyroll Expo starts tomorrow, but the convention is showing me red flags of how unorganized they are. They made the schedule 6 days before the con starts & the schedule constantly changes even after it was posted. All the big names are on Friday & they don't have any other individual panels for Saturday or Sunday. I'm crossing my fingers that everything works out in the end, but I don't have my hopes up. They even plan a "Feedback Panel" to hear what you have to say...& then ignore it.

Tip 4:
Don't wait until you graduate before you start job hunting! Start job hunting one quarter or semester BEFORE you graduate. I've personally learned that it's a terrible mistake to wait it out, because it takes months to land a job. It took me 11 months to get my first job post-college & it was a contractor position where I might become a full-time employee. (Spoiler alert: I was one of the four people that were hired permanently...among 20+ people)

Most companies like to hire during the start of the year or early spring. That's when companies have the budget to hire people & can afford new equipment. It's also easier for companies to train workers all at once instead of having training throughout the year. However this may differ depending on each field, because seasonal jobs~ No one is gonna hire a tax preparing in mid-August compared to mid-February.

No worries! My internet connection isn't amazing either, so I understand if there's a lag.

I just had a meeting today where some of my teammates started arguing with one another & I'm sitting there all like, "Why can't we all just be friends?" LOL. I'm so passive during meetings while some of my other teammates really want to get their points across.

The company has a stock pantry filled with snacks & drinks, so that's also a really nice perk. Our department works in the branch office, so we don't get as many nice things as the main headquarters. They have baristas making you coffee on the house + kombucha on tap. At least we will be moving over there by the end of Oct! The offices are roughly 12 minutes apart by walking, but it's such a pain when it rains or when you have to run back & forth between buildings for meetings.

Creative advertising is under another section in the marketing department, but I don't really collaborate with them ^^;.

I've never physically attended WonFes, but I read all the blog posts pertaining it on MFC. The coverage on this site is excellent (:. I was incredibly disappointed in most of the figures showcased this year, but I guess that means more money in my wallet. I will be attending Crunchy Roll Expo later this month, so that's something to look forward to!

Tip #3:
Don't follow under the pitfall of settling for a low, minimum wage job for experience as a college graduate. Unless you're an undergrad or you need it to pay the bills, don't do it. I can't even stress this enough. I have so many friends who tell me that they take a job just for the "experience" to built their resume when it wasn't anywhere relevant to their career, only to be stuck in that same job 3 years later. People are scared of change & if anything gets too hard, they just fall back to the comfort zone.

If internships are out of reach, I recommend volunteering at a place that is relevant to your field of interest to earn that experience. Not only do you get a shot at getting hired by that company, you also get a chance to network within that specific line of field. Recruiters would much rather hire someone who have the right experience even if it's volunteer, over someone who has a lot of experience that won't be applicable to the job.
