Om Meg

Wanna get into vocaloid music but dunno which songs to start? Check out this post I've made to gradually ease your way in: thread/16834

Vocaloids is my life: I adore all vocaloids but mostly IA and Hatsune Miku ღゝ◡╹)ノ♡

After that, I just like any cute characters, regardless of series or franchise (≧▽≦)
Mostly anime: Erased, Magus Bride, Future Diary, Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash, Made in Abyss, World Trigger, SAO, DxD, Konosuba, Demon Slayer, Goblin Slayer, To Love-Ru, Date-a-Live, Kill la Kill, Asterisk War, Black Clover, Azur Lane....

Vocaloids, frilly dresses, really extravagant outfits, animal ears, bunny girls, long stockings, really colorful and vibrant figures.
Vocaloids, Utaite, and J-Music. Some English songs too~



Hi! :D After a bit of culture shock, I'm doing well! Job hunting is going good as well, had a few assignments and video interviews already and next week I will have my first in-person interview. :) The weather is...cold. LOL. But it's a really different type of cold than the Netherlands as there is barely wind here. Luckily the Finnish know that their weather is like that and most things are build indoors/underground etc. :) And haha, I almost picked up crosstitching but held myself back as when I went to the store the basic stuff I needed for the crosstitch I wanted to do was 80+ euros!!! And then if I wanted all we are talking about 150+ euros. X_X And I thought that was too much money for an impulse thought about wanting to crosstitch. :P But I will pick up the project another time!

I find it so interesting that I'm talking with a Lakka expert and apparently that stuff should also be in the country where I grew up, but I never saw/heard it before. xD If shipping wasn't so expensive I could send you those chocolates over. :P

You know, they barely use any physical money over here! Everybody is so used to paying everything with card/phone app. I literally have some cash money from the Netherlands in my wallet that I want to use up and didn't have an opportunity for it yet!

That's a super cool job! :D And wow, such amazing weather! But you're probably used to that because you live in California? :)

Hrmm sounds similar to how I used Google Photos and Google+ back when it still was available. Sounds a bit more risky to me tbh, they can easily change the codes behind those pictures... >.< I wish that MFC allows all pictures related to content on this site here. :( As much as I love my blogging hobby I'm not going to buy server space myself for something I just do for fun...

Does Flickr still allow you to hyperlink them, even if the pictures have adult content? :O

I'm mainly learning Finnish right now with my supermarket visits, reading the packaging and afterwards at home try to 'learn' my receipt. It's pretty good for picking up random words! Which especially helps if you want to go to a restaurant without a translated menu. xD And well, Finnish is almost like the complete opposite of Germannic languages (which includes Dutch), so it's very hard to pick up for me. People from Western Europe, Russia etc. have an easier time because they can easier relate to how words are pronounced and how grammar works. For me it's really like an alien language. Swedish is the easiest to pick up for me as there are a lot of similarities with German, which has a lot of similarities with Dutch. :)

Yeah! I'm really looking forward to getting a new place and being able to display all my figures nicely~ :) They're so sad and boxed up in a storage unit right now. :(

I hope you’re alright, that sound very tough. :/ But replying late is never something anyone needs to apologize to me for (I’m seeing myself as the uncrowned queen of late replies anyway). (*ノдノ)

They do, but I have bad experiences with their phones (I drop mine a lot) because they’re not very durable (and I’m clumsy af). Right now I’ve got the Huawei Mate 20Pro and I’m really satisfied with it so far. The bit about the light makes me feel a bit ashamed since I’m only using a fairly cheap picture tent and the lighting that came with it (I can shuffle it around to some degree but that’s about it). So yeah, I don’t really think it’s anything worthy of praise. (/≧ω\) I mean it’s great that you like it and that definitely makes me happy, but I feel like I do everything is such a messy way, well…

Six figures, that’s actually a nice number and makes me feel a bit ashamed (excluding Nendos/figmas I got 9 in December…). The Nekopara figures are extremely cute, though I do think what they pulled for the Skytube ones is absolute bs as you won’t have “all the options” even when getting the DX versions. Personally, I preordered ITEM #549564 & ITEM #549563 (and I don’t even know the source) and I’m debating ITEM #676275 & ITEM #675996. The other figure is cute as well, but seeing how it’s a new manufacturer it might be risky to go for it.

Well, restraining yourself isn’t anything bad. I never did at the start and ended up having to sell a lot of figures because of it. If you have the money and you’re sure about your purchase you can still go for it.

Hmmm? I think that’s a natural thing when you’re collecting. First of all my space isn’t unlimited and barring a few figures I already got most of the older ones I wanted, leaving me with only preorders and prototypes. Also, with the increasing prices I find less and less figures I feel like are “worth” it, I even passed in some where I was 100% certain I’d get and I don’t even feel bad about it. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the hobby and there are definitely things I’m still hoping for, but my attention can’t be grabbed as easily as before.

Well, it’s okay for you to derail my thread as well, I mean it’s not like you started discussing something with someone else. If that’d bother me, I wouldn’t go along with it after all (though pm and profile comments are obviously fine as well). :3 I have trouble getting a conversation started (I just can’t think of anything interesting to say) so I’m actually dependent on people reaching out to me. |* ̄∇ ̄|

I thought as much and it’s not like I’m a fan of her either (she’s still cute though).

Elegantly describing something…. I don’t even have lofty aspirations like that… I’m actually fine with being clear and concise. X3 What did you end up writing in your essay? :3

Anglistics at my university actually includes a mandatory block on linguistics (and you can even major in it later on), but I was always bad at it once the subject left the memorizing part. I did fairly well in the mandatory block, but once it went to actual applying that stuff… I even cheated a bit in a later course since it was listed as a Linguistics class but wasn’t really one. Haha, maybe that’s why I never ended up learning other languages to a useable degree (even English I learned more through reading than anything else).

If it’s speaking it’s only German and English… about what I studied… I guess Spain in high school and then Japanese and a tiny bit of Swedish.

Hi! Don't stress yourself, I might get slower soon again. Right now I'm finally up to date with my MFC replies, but I've started my jobhunting here which of course eats up practically all the free time I had. :P I saw lakka chocolates in the supermarket here yesterday by the way! But they were from some really luxurious brand and super expensive. >.< I still hope to see actual lakka fruit being sold loose somewhere. :)

If you don't mind me asking, what kind of work do you do with such crazy hours? :O Your profile mentions being a field biologist, so you go on extensive searches outside?

I'll let you know my experiences with imgbox when I get to it! :)

Right now I am studying my grocery store receipts after purchases and try to remember the Finnish names for regular household products. That seems more important to learn right now rather than basic language skills, because with living near the capital city everybody is used to do everything in English anyway. :P I'm not confident enough to strike up a talk with the cashier yet, haha.

Hehe, most of those hobbies I will tone down with though, as right now I'm in a temporary tiny apartment with barely any spaces next to our desks and bed. So it's like, find a job, get a nicer place and then I can think about picking up any hobbies again. :P Although I have been secretly thinking about buying some new cross stitch materials and you know, maybe I'll just get them haha.

Take care and speak to you soon! :)

Well, at least I took the camera into consideration when I got a new phone last year (though the camera of the S7 was okay~ish for reviews as well). Thinking of how I use the macrolens most of the time these days and only adjust the light in my picture tent sometimes I do wonder which techniques you’re referring to though. x3 Whenever I do these things it all just seems kinda haphazard to me (sry, I was never good at dealing with people complimenting me).

Isn’t that a good way to go about it though? A collection doesn’t have to be big, it just needs to make you happy imo. :3
Any particular models you’re interested in?

Haha, I’m actually reducing my orders right now ( I was so proud when my ordered list was down to just one page here). I think December will be my last really big loot (7 scales, 2 prize figures and a bunch of other stuff), though January will have a lot of small goods. So, while you’re gearing up I’m actually doing the opposite. X3

Thank you! :3

Don’t worry about derailing my posts, if it’s too much I’ll usually shift it to pm, but sometimes I don’t even do that (blog/42480/comm... *cough*)

That song is cute as well, but it’s also obvious that it’s not sung by her. Not being a fan of something doesn’t have to keep you from getting figures either, though that also depends on the type of collector you are. :3

Yeah, the problem is once you try describe it instead of using the right term it just sounds so clumsy and dumb (not that I can always avoid that). Instruments can be quite bad as well, I remember googling forever while writing BLOG #41764 to find out that damn thing is called pipa…

Well, it shouldn’t be bad seeing how I actually major in anglistics, but I always feel it’s not enough. -_- It’s hard to judge if you’re proficient in any given language unless you do something challenging though, everyday conversation or casual chats are something that can be learned pretty fast and easily after all (studied a few other languages as well, though never to a useful level).

Thank you! :3
Although I'd describe my photography more as functional and plain, I don't really aim for it to be pretty, I just want to bring my point across (not even using a real camera).

You have great taste in figures as well only picking the cream of the crop from your favorites. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

Thanks for accepting! Considering how much you support and comment my blogs it was about time wasn't it? (^ω^)

Hello! That is fine, sorry it took me a while to reply back. Just did the actual move to Finland a couple of days ago and still have to settle down.

Thank you! :) I still have to think about how I'm going to let my profile look now and change my about me. I'm not really motivated to pick up all the panels again now that I'm in a place where I would have to learn the community from 0. With cosplay I have a half-finished costume I really want to complete, but not sure if I will continue the hobby after that, I've been so busy with a lot of other crafts related hobby's. Especially GK painting. :)

I have fixed a few of my blogs in the meantime and I'm uploading what is allowed to MFC and put the rest on imgBB. So far has been working fine. Wordpress is pretty limited with how much pictures are allowed, so I would have to make many blogs, which makes it very messy to keep an overview of what is linked where.

Thank you for letting me know about that website! Have never heard of imgbox before, seem to work similar to imgBB. I think I will keep it to imgBB for now (as I got used to it), but the first time I want to upload some NSFW, I will go try them out. :) Do you have an account on there by the way, any experiences?

I'll be honest, so far most of it has been a bit of culture shock for me. Doing groceries and everybody speaking a language you don't understand, announcers also non understandable...packaging of everything is FI/SE/NO/DK and no English. TT^TT It's a bit overwhelming, luckily I can take a few more days off before I need to get to business.

I'm actually impressed at how not cold it is here so far??? At any given moment it's about 5 to 10 degrees celsius colder here than the country where I come from. Right now we have both here and in my origin country the hottest winter so far in many years. I'm expecting it won't get really cold here until February and March. 'Spring' (as far as spring is over here) starts very late, early in June.

Grocery shopping and studying your receipt afterwards really helps, already picked up a lot of words from that. :) I'll also start actual lessons in a couple of months and try to watch most of my movies/series where possible with Finnish subtitles.

Haven't seen any Lanka yet, but only went to a few small local shops. The bigger supermarkets probably have it. :)

Look at me rambling about myself, how's everything hanging with you? :)

I didn't even know I had it deactivated, thanks for telling me :^)

Yes and I really dig it! They could probably make one wearing some Madmax-styled gear and I would fall for her*.*
