happy 2002

Shippuden Neji wasn’t made into one of the classic rubber keychains (unless he was and I’m totally bad at google?), so I refused to get Shippuden Shikamaru and just stuck with my classic 2002 series keychains.

But apparently Banpresto made a Shippuden(/originalNaruto) collection of rubber phone charms for Boruto.  So I finally get my Shippuden Neji yay~

I remember one morning getting up at dawn, there was such a sense of possibility. You know, that feeling? And I remember thinking to myself this is the beginning of happiness. This is where it starts. And of course there will always be more. It never occurred to me it wasn’t the beginning. It was happiness. It was the moment. Right then.
