Nhan-Fiction Note: Hi there.
As part of my attempt at making this blog function with more consistency, I will be designating certain days of the week with “scheduled” topics and specific themes. For instance, Sunday just happened to be the day I was writing Random Kanji Knowledge posts, so I will make the kanji topics Sunday’s main spiel from here on out.
Of course, I do not intend to make every designated post about Japanese-related themes all the time, and I still want to publish random posts whenever things come to mind. I already have an everyday rule of posting at least one thing each day.
So far, it is looking like:
Sunday: Random Kanji Knowledge.
Monday: Champion rant/critique for “League of Legends.”
Tuesday: Happy Haiku (as the title of this blog post points out).
Wednesday to Saturday: TBD. I will just select things as I see fit.
Nothing is really set in stone, but I really would like to shoot for more consistent posting throughout the week. Plus, it would encourage me to step up my game as a writer.
Anyway, it’s time for the first Happy Haiku for this blog site. Read the rest of this entry »
I wonder what this world looks like to you
What are you going to find on the sea?
With fumbling hands, little by little
You try to find out where the wind blows
You move ahead by your own efforts
So I’m sure the day will come
It just pains me a little
That your sky is too bright for me
But I’m so happy, so happy to see you try your best
That’s why I decided I’ve got to change myself as well
Let me tell you everything’s all right, forever and ever
I’m by your side watching
And on this day so reminiscent of you
I’ll be seeing you

First off, I would like to give a special thank you to The Acting Minority for recommending this film to me. “Silver Linings Playbook” turned out to be an excellent movie, especially for someone like me who considers the mysteries of life to be so intriguing these days. I highly suggest you check it out for yourself.
Synopsis: Life doesn’t always go according to plan. Pat Solatano (Bradley Cooper) has lost everything — his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert DeNiro) after spending eight months is a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation. All Pat’s parents want is for him to get back on his feet-and to share their family’s obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he’ll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them, and silver linings appear in both of their lives. — (C) Weinstein Read the rest of this entry »

As you can see, the tagline for this blog has been changed from …
… to a quote I made up recently to reflect my new perspective on life.
Every day, it is all about establishing the type of vibe that either hinders you or helps you feel happy. Why let the negativity bog you down when you can seek out positivity that lifts up your spirits? It is not always easy to achieve and maintain the ideal vibe, but this is all part of life’s various challenges.
What kind of vibe will you abide by today? The choice is yours!
