[Revised in 2019 to reflect the changes I had undergone since starting this journal as a 15-year-old)
NAME: Mimi. My parents (+ most of my relatives) have been calling me this since I was a month old. In my Japanese class they called me Mimi-chan. :D
In my old posts I would sign off with Nana. It meant I was not in the best of moods. It happened like 3 times and I really shouldn’t even mention it anymore.
LOCATION: Massachusetts, USA, and full of Boston pride.
AGE: 26 with a baby face. You may think this is a good thing, but that combined with my gender and voice means no one treats me like an adult. I try to wear lots of button up shirts.
MAIN HOBBY: I love writing! I started with fanfiction and now I’m more into original fiction. It’s the one activity that I’ve been able to stick to throughout the years… probably because it’s kind of hard to make it through school and my current job without writing. I’ve stopped creative writing since starting college and I’d love to get back into it again someday.
OTHER HOBBIES: browsing nosleep, making lists, eating everything, crafting odd little things, rollerblading, playing video/PC games, origami, criticizing social constructions, procrastinating, collecting art supplies, doodling, embellishing life with glitter, painting my nails, raging at injustices
Still a fan of Cardcaptor Sakura, fanfiction, and NEWS, though not as strongly as before; they’re no longer my anti-drugs because drugs of the psychedelic kind sounds kinda fun to me. Also, no promises that I won’t try meth someday.
no wait I’m already basically on meth since I’m prescribed amphetamines ahahaa no promises I won’t inject fentanyl someday
THE BINDING OF ISAAC. THE BINDING OF ISAAC. <3
I like to dabble in the arts occasionally. But I have approximate knowledge of many things and am master of nothing. I have a natural artistic talent and carefulness with my hands that allow me to pick up artsy hobbies quickly, but I lack the patience to stick with one for long because life is short and I get frustrated when I’m suddenly struggling at something. So far, I’ve crocheted, made jewelry, painted with watercolors, sketched still lifes, molded polymer clay, bullet journaled, folded origami, scrapbooked, done nail art, done calligraphy, colored (coloring totally counts!), and made miscellaneous stuff using mixed media.
I am PRO LOVE. I don’t care what kind it is; as long as two (or more!) people love each other, that’s all that matters. I don’t strictly identify as anything myself because simply put, I am attracted to attractive people, though touching vaginas is a no (they’re kinda weird).
After being raised by Buddhist-but-not-really parents for 26 years, attending Catholic schools for 14, and dating a former Muslim guy for 7, you better believe this confused girl is gonna identify as agnostic.
My MBTI personality type: INFP. Doesn’t tell you everything but this link should give you a good idea of what I’m like. I have taken unofficial free tests and official ones through my school over the years and I have been consistently and strongly INFP. I know much of the psych field shits on the MBTI but I don’t care because I love it.
Feminist. I wear that label proudly, even if, according to Manny’s conservative coworkers, that makes me a “libtard lesbian.” No, I don’t despise men or want a world that favors women. I used to be the most anti-feminist thing on the planet (or I thought I was) because I believed feminists wanted superiority in favor of women. I just wanna smash the socially constructed systems of oppression that define everything and that punish you (male or female or black or green or poor) for daring to deviate from your given role. Is that so much to ask for? I have a particular hatred of the arbitrariness of gender roles.
Naughty humor makes me giggle. Also: I am secretly super sexual. Not the best of combinations.
I have been diagnosed with persistent depressive disorder, also known as chronic depression. Who knows how long I’ve had it, but I’m suspecting it’s been here since high school if my posts and never-published drafts are any indication. Basically, I low-key want to stop existing all the time. If my posts ever seem dismal and self-hating, that’s why.
I love being intoxicated because only with alcohol can forget about my insecurities and be social for once (seriously, I become a whole different person because I stop caring), but because my body cannot properly deal with booze, drinking becomes a little less fun when a bottle of weak-ass Mike’s Hard Cranberry Lemonade breaks you out in hives and turns you tomato-red from head to toe. I don’t drink anymore.
I didn’t really grow up listening to music so I never grew particularly attached to any one genre. I bounce around and listen to what sounds good to me. In general, that means pop or pop-rock music. Some English-speaking artists that I like are The Hush Sound, Fall Out Boy, Lauv, P!nk, Alessia Cara, Marit Larsen, and Panic! at the Disco.
And some Japanese artists that I like: Fujita Maiko, JASMINE, Nishino Kana, school food punishment, NEWS, Tegomass, ayaka, Fukuhara Miho.
Not a fan of: very large vocal/idol groups (e.g., AKB48), most rap, screamo, country, and excessive autotune (e.g., mainstream K-pop).
