MK’s Tweets

*Feeling droop*

*Feeling droop*

Tadaima minna-san! It is I! MK!

This morning my class and I went on a hike. It was definintely not a relaxed hike. There was much walking up very steep paths and stuff. And you’d think that at the end of such a hike there’d be some grand thing that would cause us all to be happy that we came all this way (some beautiful oasis/ awesome jungle with cute monkeys). But you’d be wrong… There was really nothing special. [-.-]

Anyway, MK has limited time, so she will quickly tell minna-san about:

Twitter

OK, well some might have already heard of it, and maybe even have accounts on Twitter. If you look at the sidebar on the left ← you’ll see a widget called MK’s Twitter. If you read them you’ll see that they’re all basically answering the question: “What are you doing?”. And that’s basically what Twitter is, it’s a way to stay connected through frequent, very short posts (called tweets) wherein you state what you’re doing at the moment.

I know when you first learn about Twitter, it seems like a really pointless idea. That’s why I don’t understand just why Twitter is so popular. Because I felt just the same way when I first learned about it. But when you join, it’s actually quite fun. It’s a great, fun way to keep connected.

One thing that I really love about twitter, is that it makes you feel close to people who physically aren’t that close. For example, celebrities. I know of some famous people that twitter, some more than others:

  • P. Diddy/Sean Combs
  • Martha Stewart
  • Ryan Seacrest
  • Shaquille O’Neal
  • Tony Hawk
  • Barack Obama
  • John McCain
  • Britany Spears
  • Vanessa Hudgens
  • Ellen Degeneres
  • And more

Wow, that list’s longer than I expeted, and there are more, of course, so it’s quite a few celebs on there. I think that’s pretty cool.

Anyway, so I’m letting minna-san know that if anyone would like to follow MK on Twitter (I tweet quite frequently), you can look for me on Twitter. You can, of course, follow me if you want, and let me know, ‘cuz I’d love to follow minna-san too!

OK, MK is feeling rather tired at the moment, so, I guess that means it’s time for me to go. [u_u]

Ja~ne!

Latest Masterpiece

Konbanwa minna-san! MK desu!

Today I started working on my latest manga MASTERPIECE!!!

OK, it’s not really a masterpiece, but it’s a piece that I plan to put a whole lot of effort into during the next few days. And I’m going to post this piece here as it appears in the different “phases of development”.

The first two “phase of development” (the ones I did today) are:

  1. The drawing of the original image (simple sketch done in pencil)
  2. The tracing of the image in pen (this is so that the picture will show up clearly when it’s scanned)

Now, note: I’m no expert so expect the least in my work and please think nothing of it if my way of creating my work is different or less effective than others. I appreciate any tips, though.

OK, so here’s my drawing in Phase 1:

^.^ It's Sachi-chan!

^.^ It's MK!

I know, doesn’t look very much like MK, but it’s supposed to be a self-portrait. But hopefully the color will make a big difference in making this look like MK. Hmmm, I should get rid of that mole. MK doesn’t have a more -_- *wishes she did*

But I must leave now (gomen). Today was a busy day. Look out for the last phase of my piece soon!

Ja~ne!

What do I know about Naruto?

Ohayou minna-san! MK is going to blog quickly because she has a very busy day ahead of her [-_-]…

I’m currently personalizing my PSP. Just like my computer, I like to keep my PSP always looking nice and new. So I regularly change backgrounds themes etc. [^_^] I try to give my PSP the best treatment!

My PSP! ^_^

My PSP! ^_^ (sorry it's not so clear)

Hmmm, what shall I blog about today?

OH! I KNOW!

I’ll blog about…

Naruto!

To be completely honest, I really am not a huge fan of Naruto. I initially only thought it was cool because it’s an anime, but that it basically. Oh and Gaara \[♥.♥]/!

Sand Siblings - Temari, Gaara and Kankuro

Sand Siblings - Temari, Gaara♥ and Kankuro

I mean, in the earlier stages of the anime, Gaara’s a real psycho jerk-freak [O_o]! He’s all sadistic and… just plain insane [;_;]. But I’ve always found him intriguing. Like he must have had some kind of a traumatic experience (sorry, I haven’t seen the entire series, so I don’t know if maybe the answer to this question is right in the show [^_-]) or something. I think I read something on Wikipedia about something with his creator or whatever.

But anyway, I especially LOVE Gaara when he turns good \[^▽^]/~{SUGOI NE)!!! It’s nice to see such a serious, scary guy like Gaara become a good guy [^_^]~♥.

Anyway, minna-san must be wondering how MK knows all of this about Naruto if she doesn’t like the show?

Well, doesn’t every anime fan know some stuff about Naruto? It’s like one of the most popular anime. Plus, my brother’s a HUGE Naruto fan. He talks about it all the time, reads the manga, watches the anime, plays the video games and more!!! [0.0] Also, MK sometimes puts extra effort into finding information about Gaara [^_^]! He’s just so interesting!

….

Hmmm, well I can’t really come up with too much else to say about Naruto… Oh! I know, I’ll show minna-san some cool Naruto pictures! (Just a few)

Naruto and Sakura (Shippuden)

LOL! *Kakashis so funny with that book in his hand*

LOL! *Kakashi's so funny with that book in his hand*

/{KAKASHII!!!)”]\ÓΔÒ/{!!!!)

OK, I think that’s about enough now… *still dazed ↑ [@.@]{ Whoa)* LOL! If you click on the pictures it’ll take you to the deviantart.com page that I got them from. I’ll have to do more picture displays in the future. [^_^]

Speaking of which, since MK now has a working scanner, look out for some new drawings of hers! Though they’ll probably be worse than the last ones I posted, since I didn’t practice much during the vacation [u_u].

I gotta go now [-_-]… This has been a post by MK! It’s been fun blogging today, but now it’s time for work [-_-]…

Ja~ne! [^.-]v!

Sachi-chan’s Favorite Video Game~ The Sims!

Ohayou minna-san~♥! Sachi-chan desu! How are you all doing? I really want to say a quick ” Thank You” to all of you who were so nice about my who “false anticipation” problem. It really helped to have such support! ^_^

Alright, now …what shall I blog about today? *thinks* I know! I’ll blog about my absolute favorite game of all time: The Sims!

The Sims!

The Sims!

Note: This post is packed with my opinions. If anyone disagrees with them, I have no problem whatsoever, but I hope no one will take any of this personally. Thank you!

Anyway, so, I’ve been a big fan of The Sims for about as long as I can remember. My love of this awesome game was passed down to me by my older sister. She was always a Sims fan and when I became old enough to understand the game I fell in love with it too! I really don’t know any other game that comes close. I know different games suite different people, so I understand that some would prefer maybe a faster more action game, for example. But I’ve always loved simulation games, and especially “life” simulation games. So The Sims (“Sims” is short for simulation) is basically the perfect game for me!

OK, some of you may be reading this and thinking, What is high heaven is this girl talking about? If so, I’ll explain a little about The Sims games now.

First off, I’ll start by saying a little about the general plot of all of the Sims games:

Basically, the objective of all Sims games is just to… live. In the Sims games (at least the ones for PC), there’re hardly ever any real obligations or things you have to do to “win”. You choose just about everything about the kind of lives you want your sims to live. You choose whether you want them to live happily ever after, or a life of drama and issues. It’s really the ultimate simulation game.

One of the main things that I love so much about The Sims games are the many possibilities to expand the game. At first when you just install, for example, The Sims 2 base game, life is just simple, you just live, work, eat, sleep socialize etc. That can be fun, but after a certain amount of time, that gets kinda boring, doesn’t it? That’s where expansion packs come in. The makers of The Sims games are always busy working on their latest expansion pack (unless of course a totally new base game is coming out soon – such as The Sims 3!!!). Expansion packs do exactly what they imply. They expand the game.

The Sims 2 Expansion Packs

The Sims 2 Expansion Packs

Lemme give a quick example:

When I buy The Sims 2 (base game), I can just live (not too many special things to do). But if I buy “The Sims 2 University Expansion Pack*”, I can send my teenage kids to college so they can get good jobs. And then if I buy “The Sims 2 Bon Voyage Expansion Pack*”, I can do that (send my kids to college) and go on awesome vacations. Then if I buy “The Sims 2 Pets Expansion pack*”, I can have pets as part of the family. And so on.

So each time you install an expansion pack, you expand the game more and more. And it’s that ever-growing-ness that keeps The Sims games interesting. You’re still playing the same game with your same families, but the game itself is always growing, getting more and more possibilities. Pretty cool, ne? n.n

Ok, I think that’s enough of my babbling on about this game now… I just can’t wait until the newest Sims game, The Sims 3 comes out next year!!! *v*/!!!

So, I’d love to know, What are your favorite games? Why do you like them so much?

Right! Sachi-chan must leave now…

Ja-ne~♫♪☼!
