Photo Shoot Day

So back in mid-April I had photo shoot. It was for a new job that I applied to as a promo girl for various ventures. I had gotten the job but they recommended that I send more picture along with my measurement. A friend of mine is an up and coming photographer so I asked him to take photos. He was looking to add to his portfolio and I was looking to add to mine.

We decided to do it on April 19th since he’s usually really busy. It was also the perfect time for me because all my classes had ended but my exams did not not start yet. I asked my friend Alex to help me out, unfortunately she couldn’t stay throughout the photo shoot. It went on during the evening and we were done by sunset.

Jumping into a New Year
It’s the year of the horse

Hi everyone, it has been nearly two months since my last blog post. I am so, so sorry about that. Between finals and the holidays, I have been swamped. I’m surprised and happy that I’ve crossed into 10,000+ page views. Thank you.It’s a New Year, and I’d like to wish all my readers a happy New Year.

Looking back on 2013, I can say that I’m quite satisfied with it. I feel like I have grown as a person. I gained so much confidence in myself, much of what I was missing the past 7 years of my life, haha.

Small Rant: Black Girls Can’t Be Gyaru?

Recently there’s been talk among the gyaru I follow about racism in the gaijin gyaru community. Such as people stating that black girls cannot be gyaru. It all started with the weekly gyaru secrets post on livejournal. I remember gyaru secrets, it was suppose to be the gyaru equivalent to lolita secrets. Back then it was a place for gyaru to talk about stuff they couldn’t within the community or with their friends and family. The topics varied from recovering from eating disorder to having a crush on your close gal pal.

I saw the moderators change due to lack of interest, and for the most part it was harmless. I’d check it from time to time, and there were things I disagreed with, some that I agreed with. However some way along the line, the moderator allowed for posting to be more aggressive and attacking when it came to gaijin gyaru. That’s when things went downhill.
