having way too much fun on this editing app on my phone

Constantly losing focus while you study be frustrating. We will go through some of the top study tips that can allow you to focus and study effectively.

Remind yourself why
One of the key things that help us maintain focus no matter what, is by getting really interested in whatever we are doing. So find a way to make your topic interesting, relatable and practical in your life.

Remind yourself that you want to study to expand your worldly knowledge, to graduate, get into a field that you can flourish in, and provide some value to the world with your awesomeness. Also try thinking in metaphors and whatifs. It’s your mind, no one else has access to it, so think of wondrous things to make yourself want to devote the next few hours of your life to the task at hand.

Before studying

  1. Plan out what you want to accomplish and give yourself a time limit. For example, I will read 10 pages from my psych textbook in 30 minutes, or I will spend 1 hour researching the key words for my report.
  2. Get enough sleep. Ideally around 7-9 hours. If you sleep earlier, you may need less sleep, but please never do less than 6. Constant sleep deprivation is deteriorating for the brain and body.
  3. Eat foods that help you focus. Which include blueberries, green tea, avocados, spinach, kale, salmon, nuts and seeds. I often have a spinach, banana & kale smoothie with matcha green tea powder, but you can combine some of the ingredients in a quick sandwich if you like.
  4. Your brain mainly works on sugar, but you need to temper it with a protein or something with low GI, to reduce any blood-sugar problems which can lead to sudden tiredness. A quick way to find a a balance is to opt for a fruit or healthy smoothie.
  5. Be aware that if you study right after having a heavy meal the blood circulating around your brain reduces and goes to help with digestion, so you may feel less alert. Smaller meals can help.
  6. Take supplements that help you focus: fish oil, omega 3, Ginko Biloba, vitamin B12, Co-Enzyme Q10, and iron.
  7. Identify whatever distracts you and find a way to minimise it. So perhaps you can go to a non-distracting environment, if that is an issue. I prefer libraries or coffeeshops.
  8. Surround yourself with motivated people. If you can befriend the top few students in your class, or at least be on nicer terms with them, hopefully their studiousness will rub off on you.
  9. Have all the stationary and materials you need at hand.
  10. Set up a reward system, but avoid food as a reward as it can lead to an unhealthy relationship with food. Instead try a relaxing activity, or hobby. Pretty much any incentive you can think of that will help you cross the finish line.

While studying

  1. Prime - Spend 2 minutes skimming or figuring out what you will be going through.
  2. Drinking game - Keep a bottle of water or two next to you. Drink a cup or a half cup worth every time you get distracted for more than 5 seconds.
  3. Put distractions in their place - Write down any distracting thoughts in a small notebook. But remember it’s not supposed to act as your pretty bullet journal, but you can make another spread for if it you like. I made a small notebook the other day to write down quick thoughts that I would otherwise dwell on. It helps me direct my thoughts appropriately to what I’m studying, and still have those important ideas to refer to later.
  4. Motivate yourself - Write out exactly why you want to be a [insert awesome career position] in detail with examples. Keep that page or post-it on hand and look at it when you feel yourself losing focus. It can give you a motivational boost and can inspire you to keep going. Sometimes I like to visualise specific scenarios of how I could help people once my finish my studies.
  5. Take strategic breaks - Remove yourself from your study space and think of something else for a few minutes. You can get a snack, walk around, do a quick workout, look outside, and notice nature. Practice being present in the moment. Listen to of the world around you and get out of your head.
  6. If you feel you can not sustain your concentration on a task for too long, you may switch between two different yet equally important tasks. But try to do a big task for at least 20 minutes, you never know, by then you might like it. Some studies show, it takes 20 minutes to really get into concentrating on something.
  7. Reduce as many distractions as you can, including turning off notifications and wifi, putting you phone on do not disturb or airplane mode, and try blocking apps.
  8. Track how you use your time. I like the apps ‘Now and Then’ and ‘Moment’ for iOS. So you can see how much you have accomplished or slacked off.
  9. Write draft first. Edit and prettify later.
  10. If you’re in the final stage, focus on the fact that you have made it this far and that you’re almost done.
  11. Try to make it fun somehow, perhaps with strategies you used when you were a kid.
  12. Use as many senses as you can.
  13. Record your voice and say whatever you are reading or writing in different accents.
  14. Draw quick doodles next to whoever you are doing to help you remember it better.
  15. As long it’s not your first draft, feel free to use colourful pens, highlights and tape to keep you engaged.

After studying

  1. Revise whatever you have accomplished just before your break, by quickly skimming through your most recent notes or readings.
  2. Consequent revision schedule. The best way to remember what you have worked on is to revise it in specific intervals, after you have studying it. So after five minutes, in that evening before bed, the next day, at the end of the week and then in three weeks.
  3. Reward yourself, as long as you feel like you ended up accomplishing something you couldn’t before.

You can try out each step for two days each to see which strategies work best for you.

I hope these tips can help you, and feel free message me if you would like more details for one of the points :)

You can find part one here

A/N: Hey guys, sorry I didn’t post all day even though I said I would, I was social for once. Anyway here she is! As always anything in italics is usually the inner thoughts of a character. Hope you enjoy this one! I was super excited to write this and I’m pretty happy with the outcome!

I received this message earlier asking me to talk a little bit about how to become a popular studyblr. While my blog’s a wee little baby of one week, I still want to give you some helpful tips I’ve discovered from being in the community these last few days!

Interact

Talk to the people who follow you and follow as many people as your heart desires. When you’re starting out you want to expose yourself to as many stubyblrs as you can! Reach out and introduce yourself, thank these lil angels for following you (or ask them to check your blog out), and genuinely compliment the things you love about their blog. Make friends! Everyone’s so great.

Reblog original posts, write comments, and support each other! Don’t be afraid to drop messages or asks either. You are not a bother or a nuisance, please never ever think this. I’ve never met a community more friendly and as accepting as this one!

Contribute

Post photos of your notes! Write text posts about your day or encourage others to keep kicking ass! Make masterposts! Are you good at a thing? Give other’s advice so they can be good at the thing too! We love discovering new resources that’ll help us be better. Share your knowledge!

Posting original content will help your blog gain followers. You become a well of knowledge for the community and others are interested in what you know and want to share. I recommend making headers for these posts! They’ll grab people’s attention, and that’s exactly what we want!

On editing your photos: make your photos bright and vibrant! If you don’t have Photoshop and only use your phone to take pictures, Photo’s editing option is great. VSCO’s a popular editing app I recommend too!

Appearance

I 100% suggest you find a great theme. Personally, there’s a much larger chance I’ll follow a studyblr if they have a clean, organized, and visually stunning layout. It’s the first thing someone sees when they look at your blog, so you’ve got to keep in mind the impression you’re giving through it!

Here are a few great theme makers to get you started:
solitudethemes, acuite, solarre, odeysseus, sorrism

Find or make yourself a nice header and icon that matches your aesthetic, too. All these little pieces come together to create a brand for you, which is what’ll make you stick out from all the other studyblrs that are also creating content! I like using a grid, Sullivan font, and blue in my posts. They’ll (hopefully) become easily identifiable as I post more!

Having all these things won’t make or break your blog, but it really helps a lot.

Other Tips

  • Introduce yourself in a post! Tell us about yourself, what you’re studying, your goals, aspirations, anything you want! You can read mine here, or you can look through the “new studyblr” tag to get a better idea of what others say in theirs. 
    • Remember to tag your post with “new studyblr” and “studyblr introduction” + your favorite studyblrs so they see them too!

  • If you don’t have a lot of free time to actively post, create a queue! This’ll keep your account active while you’re away. 

  • TAG, TAG, TAG your posts. This’ll help expose your content! 

  • Have a “tags” page! I’m constantly looking for new resources and inspiration, and love when a blog has a “tags” page. The blog instantly becomes much more accessible and I can search for specific content without the headache of going through every single post! 

  • “About” pages are where it’s at. When I see a blog doesn’t have any links at all it bums me out. I want to know what you’re about! Give your new potential followers a little sneak peek into your awesome life.

  • You can also enter contests like Blogs of the Month, Blog Awards, and blog rates! This is a fun way to get your blog out there while also interacting with others!

Takeaways: be kind, make friends, keep a queue handy, have a good theme, make a brand for yourself, create useful content, and tag your posts!

Remember that running a studyblr is supposed to be fun and helpful, not stressful or overwhelming. Take baby steps instead of trying to do it all in an afternoon! It’s a process. I hope this is helpful!

New Year’s Kiss - Peter Parker

Summary- You find yourself having no-one to kiss when the clock strikes twelve, luckily for you, a masked hero had the same problem

Although there was one thing you liked about new year, your parents always went out to the neighbours, leaving you in a apartment alone, so you could do whatever you wanted.

Tonight you decided that having a marathon of all the Harry Potter movies was going to be how you blocked everyone out. All of your friends were out having a good time no doubt, but you refused to make yourself feel like a buzzkill by checking Snapchat or Instagram.

“When was the last time you went on a date?” your best friend, Josie, asked.

The question had you thinking. When was the last time you went on a date? Gee, it’d seem like it’d been years since you had. Hell, maybe it had been years.

“How long ago did Corbin and I break up?” 

Josie’s face contorted into shock. “Has it really been that long?”

“I was in mourning,” you defended.

“Corbin screwed you over! He shouldn’t have deserved your mourning. What about…wasn’t there my cousin?”

Cheritz new 1.4.2 Update - My Opinion

So i wanted to say something since i read many comments of people who complained about the game abuse ban + that the max speed option and the save slot load feature will end soon:

From what i know they WON’T REMOVE the save and load option, it’s just going to change , means that you have to spend 5 hourglasses to load a save slot. That’s how the game should have been originally be but Cheritz gave us a trial since of all those bugs in the past.

I know that many think that it is a bit unfair that we have to spend an addtional amount of hourglasses for loading save slots, considering that some already have to use hourglasses to load missed chats or calls but i don’t think that’s a reason to say that you will stop playing the game and stop supporting it. Of course not everyone said stuff like that but you also have to think about this:

Cheritz of course wants to earn money since the game itself is free and since the game became more popular, people demand more content right ?
I mean everyone of course wants a route for V or a route for Unknown or maybe events like special chats for special occasions like Valentinsday etc.I don’t know if they would consider adding these things but if they are planning to implement something new to the game, they will need money to give us new content.

Also think about this: Every hourglass you spend is not forced or in other words you can choose if you want to spend your hourglasses or not. And don’t you think it’s unfair that we demand and demand but pay nothing for what we get ?

which leads us to the next issue. Game abuse.
So some of you probably know that it was possible to rewind your time on your phone to play missed chats without using hourglasses. Or hack your account to cheat hourglasses whatsoever. Due to those things Cheritz didn’t get any money from those people who should have purchased Hourglasses. It’s obviously not fair to cheat and abuse the game. The Cheritz Team put a lot of effort into creating this game, so seeing them banning accounts and making us spend hourglasses on loading save slots is understandable.
If i would be one of the developers and see that people would abuse the game i worked hard for months, honestly i would be super sad and mad *coughs* smad.

I am still sorry tho for those who lost all of ther game data but please be careful this time, cheating is always bad so if you find a new way to get something free than think twice and don’t do it ! Please respect the rules of the game!

I have two suggestions for the game tho which could maybe help some:

-

Maybe turn the perma ban into a temporarily ban?:
I know abusing the game is very bad and not right to do , but I’ve seen some people spending money to buy hourglasses and rewinding time once so now everything is gone. Maybe a ban for a temporarily time would be better ?

daily hourglass rewards:

i think giving out like 1-3 ( edit bcs i agree that 5-10 hourglasses could be too much) hourglasses daily wouldn’t hurt the game too much. The pros would be that users would check out the game daily for rewards and be able to save hourglasses if they don’t want to spend money! What i know is that most of the MM users are students so there might be some who can’t afford to buy hourglasses so this could be a fair solution ?

Also i hope the autosaving is more stable now , that way people won’t have to rely on the saving slots too much and spend hourglasses when the game crashes.

So idk if it will help but maybe they will add this in the game if we all suggest it !

I hope no one is in any way offended by this, i just think it would be pretty sad if many of you guys would stop playing this game bcs of these things ! I like the fandom it’s super fun >o<I hope you continue to support Mystic Messenger ! ♥

"Cupid" zootopia Drabble

This is based after the movie and before they became a couple ^_^ I hope you enjoy, I will post the edited version later in a Reblog but until than, I hope you enjoy.
————————————-

Benjamin Clawhauser loves three things, being a Gaz-Fan, a police officer and being a silent matchmaker. He kept a little notebook underneath his desk and wrote down couples names on who he thought might be a good match. He mostly did it for fun and from boredom when the day gets long. His eyes lit up when he noticed a familiar pair walking through the front doors, laughing and looking quite close.
He wiped the donut crumbs from his mouth, swallowing the last bit of baked dough before giving out a large smile.

“Hey Judy, hey Nick!” He exclaimed. “Good to see you guys early.”

“Good morning to you too, Clawhauser.” Judy said mirroring his happy mood. “It was tough since Nick didn’t even wanted to get up.” She placed her paws on her hips when he let out a tired yawn.

“Waking up at 5:30 in the morning is your thing, not mine.” He retorted, giving her his signature smirk. She snorted, giving him a laugh. Clawhauser squealed silently, unconsciously going to his notebook to write down the new tid bits. He didn’t know that Judy was the one who picked Nick up. His cheeks nearly turned pink from glee from the obvious flirtatious stated they gave each other. Clawhauser had a lot of animals in his notebook, but his favorite pairing, who he thought could become a good couple, was Nick and Judy. It was the perfect match, complete opposites! Nick was cool and suave while Judy was excitement and determined. The fact that they were natural enemies didn’t came to him as a problem. If those two could put aside their differences to become friends, why not take it a step forward?

“It was 7:30 when I went to pick you up and you were still in bed!” She argued and elbowed him playfully in the side, making him chuckle. He stuffed his paws in his pockets, tilting his head at her.

“I’ll make it up to you when we get coffee today…I’m buying.”

Clawhauser almost screamed. He was waving his paws up to his face like a school girl. ‘How are they not dating?!’ He shouted mentally. Nick and Judy quickly noticed Clawhauser with his eyes closed and holding a very creepy smile. They raised their brows at him in concern, glancing at one another until Judy waved her paw towards him.

“You okay Clawhauser?” Nick leaned over to her ear and whispered.

“It’s probably another sugar rush, let’s run while we still can!”

“Don’t be mean!” She replied with a harsh whisper.

Clawhauser quickly put his paws down, twiddling them in embarrassment. “O-oh it’s nothing, I was just thinking about-Gazelle! you know a new app came out, would you like to see?” He was lying and prayed they won’t see through his bluff.

Nick waved his paw at him. “Maybe later, me and whiskers are going to be late for the meeting, right Juds?” he said nudging her along. She took a side step, facing him.

“Actually the chief asked for me this time, but after the meeting we can go get coffee, okay?” she smiled sweetly, walking away. Nick’s arms fell to his sides as his shoulders slumped.

“You mean I could have had an extra hour of sleep?”

Judy shrugged. “Sorry, but it’s good that you came early because you get to buy me coffee.” she winked, before turning away, leaving Nick smiling respectively at her. He was rubbing off of her. He waved her goodbye watching her go inside the meeting room. He loosen his black tie as he leaned back against Clawhauser desk, taking out his phone. It would be 30 minutes until Judy came out. Clawhauser leaned forward so much that Nick felt his heavy breathing.

Nick eyes narrowed, followed by a long sigh.”Yes?…Spots?”

Clawhauser covered his mouth, holding back a giggle. “So! coffee huh? is that what you two do…often?”

Nick tapped away at his phone, trying to appear uninterested to Clawhauser in hopes that he would stop talking to him. “Sometimes…” he muttered, trying to keep the conversation short.
Clawhauser traced his claw on the counter while he placed his chin under the palm of his paw.

“Sometimes huh? how much is sometimes?…like a every morning thing or a monday thing?”

Nick’s ears lowered, he was starting to get annoyed. “Just sometimes Spots, let’s just say often.”

“How about lunch? or dinner?…do you guys have dinner, by yourselves?” Clawhauser pressed, shaking his tail.

Nick shrugged. “Yeah, we eat together sometimes-wait…why are you asking me that?”

“Oh um, n-no reason.” Clawhauser chuckled nervously, he pushed the notebook way in the back of the shelf. “It’s just that you two do spend “a lot” of time together.”

“She’s my partner.” he said dully, staring at Clawhauser like he was an idiot. He shook his head, going back to staring at his phone. Clawhauser began drawing a small circle on the counter.

“So when you say “partner” is that platonic or more than platonic?”

Nick’s head shot up and whirled at the fat cheetah. “What are you saying?”

Clawhauser shrunk, maybe he said too much. “Oh nothing! I was just wondering…”

Nick shoved the phone in his pocket as he faced him. “Wondering about what? Come on spots, spill it.” He reached over, grabbing a hold of the counter. Nick’s eyes ping-ponged to the room Judy went through and back to Clawhauser. “Did Judy said something?”

Clawhauser’s ears perked at the sound of Nick’s whisper, almost as if he wants to keep the conversation a secret. Clawhauser eyed him carefully and leaned back towards him. His mouth tugged into a grin. He put his paw nexts to his lips, replying in a low voice.

“Did you want her to say something?”

Nick frowned, Clawhauser could see that the fox was having an internal conflict of not knowing. “Come on, Clawhauser, spill it! What did she say?”

This was perfect. Even though Clawhauser knew absolutely nothing, it was amazing to make Nick believed that he did. This is the chance for him to push them along to the right path but he had to act cool. Clawhauser turned his head away, acting aloof as he glance at his phone. A trick he learned from Nick.

“I don’t know, it’s more of something she didn’t say.” Clawhauser glance back at Nick and saw his eyes almost burst out of their sockets.

“Wait, what?- what didn’t she say?” the wily fox asked, almost in desperation. Clawhauser waved his wrist at him.

“I don’t know, I think I might be overthinking it, I don’t want things to be, you know, awkward?”

“Awkward?-Why would things be awkward? Just tell me Clawhauser!” Nick ran a paw over his head, looking off to the side while remembering a distant memory. “Was it the thing that happened last night?”

Clawhauser face lite up, but he quickly brought his excitement down, continuing the charade. “it was so weird, if I didn’t know any better she might have a little crush on you-”

Nick’s ears sprang up. “She might!?” he shouted, he covered his mouth hoping that no one heard him. He was running his paw over his head, stroking his fur in a nervous pattern.
“How do you know?”

Clawhauser gave him a look of disbelief. “Come on, it’s so obvious, did you even see how she reacted when you told her you’re buying coffee?”

“Yeah, happy right? Nothing weird about that.”

“No, no, no of course she was happy but she winked at you, what type of animal winks when another offers them coffee?”

“But I do that sometimes-”

“But has Judy done it to you?”

Nick opened his mouth and closed it, staring at the counter top. “This is the first time…” He shook his head, shutting his eyes tightly. “No. No. No. I’m just overthinking it, we’re friends, partners! A wink doesn’t mean that she has a crush on me! And she’s a bunny and I’m a fox!” His chin hit the counter. “It wouldn’t work anyway…”

Clawhauser propped his elbows up, his paws squishing up against the folds of his cheeks. “Now don’t say that, I mean I’m a fat cheetah who has a thing for a hip-shaking beauty of a gazelle. Nothing wrong with liking another species…this is the modern times! we’re not wild anymore.”

Nick hummed. “I guess you’re right about that…”

Clawhauser leaned in with a large smile. “Do you like her?” He whispered. Nick immediately pushed away from the counter.

“No! I mean as a friend sure but…” he sighed taking out his phone. “Just forget it, it was properly nothing anyway, Spots.” He started walking away. “I’m heading to the can.” Clawhauser’s ears lowered sadly but Nick sudden reaction was something interesting. He just needed more of a push.

“Hey Ben!” He whirled to find Judy. He giggled suddenly, she might be the push Nick needs. Judy swivels her head and ears around trying to find her partner. “Where’s Nick?-don’t tell me he went without me?” She smiled to herself, knowing that he would never do that.

“No, he’s just in the bathroom.” Clawhauser replied. “Say, Judy?”

Her ears perked. “Yes?”

“You and Nick seem to “hang out” a lot.” Judy scoffed softly, waving her paw dismissingly.

“Oh I wouldn’t know about that, I mean, we do spend a lot of time together…”

“Exactly! Wow, you must think he’s a great guy.” He pressed, Judy immediately lite up.

“He is! Even though he drives me nuts sometimes, he is really nice once you get to know him and funny too.”

Clawhauser laughed, time to give her the friendly push. “I knew it! That’s exactly what “Nick” said about you.”

Judy looked at him in surprise and grabbed her ears. “O-oh um…he did?” She asked with a small smile.

Clawhauser nodded feverishly, his little white lies planting root. “Yes, on and on about you, and here I thought I talked too much about Gazelle, you should have heard what Nick said about you!” He let out a loud gasp, covering his mouth. “Oh I said too much, I’m such a blabber mouth…”

Judy went on her tiptoes, her ears springing up. “Wait he did? What did he say?” Clawhauser held back a grin. He pretended to look at his computer screen.

“Nothing, nothing…I really shouldn’t have said anything, Nick only said it because he trusted me.”

“Well, I trust you too!” Judy exclaimed, she clasp her paws suddenly. “Please tell me what he said. I won’t tell him!”

Clawhauser put a finger to one of his second chin. “I..I don’t know, I don’t want things to be awkward between you two.”

That got her interested. “Awkward? Why would things be awkward? Please tell me Benjamin.”

“Well okay! Since its you!” He leaned over the counter, making Judy lift her ear up to his lips. Taking one last look at the bathroom and seeing Nick haven’t come out he whispered.

“He told me that he “love” it when he sees you smile, that’s why he offered to buy you coffee!”

Judy pulled away, her paws clutching her chest. She was holding the biggest smile that he had ever seen. “He really said that?” She whispered back. Clawhauser nodded. His plan was working! He could see it now, in a week time those two would be going out!

“If I didn’t know any better, he might have a little crush on you.”

“He might!?” She exclaimed. She covered her mouth and he noticed Judy ears became droopy. “But, I’m sure he was just being nice, it’s not like he said it because he might…no, no, we’re just over thinking it, I mean, I’m a bunny and he’s a fox.” She leaned against the counter, exhaling. “It wouldn’t work.”

“Aw don’t say that, you said it yourself, “he’s a great guy.” And from what I heard, he thinks you’re pretty great too…”

“You really think so?”

He gave her a grin. “Do you like him?” The sudden question made her blush a bit.

“No!” She said facing him. “I mean, I like him as a friend.”

Clawhauser began tracing a circle on the counter. “Really? You must be pretty good friends to flirt to eachother.”

“We…don’t flirt.” She said, but she looked down at her feet, thinking it over. “Do we?”

“Judy. Of course Nick flirts with you, have you noticed that? Those cheesy one liners? Those Nicknames he gives you? Buying you coffee?”

Judy bit her lower lip in thought. “Well I…”

“Hey whiskers ready to go?” They both jumped and whirled at Nick, who looked at the two of them in concern as they stared at him.

“What?…” They were both silent, and Judy held her tongue, afraid if he had heard something. He rolled his eyes, putting out his paws. “I washed them okay?”

They both sighed in relief while Nick shook his head. “I’m not disgusting alright, are we going Whiskers?”

“Oh! Um sure, let’s go.” Judy smiled, springing to her step. “We got a long day together anyway.” She said walking away, Nick paused, from her words but shook it off quickly replying in a snarky remark.

“Oh boy, can’t wait for that, we might as well live together from the amount of time we spend with each other.” He said following her. She gave him a look but quickly elbowed him in his side.

“Haha very funny, that would be a nightmare.”

They both snickered at each other before walking out the door. Clawhauser sighed heavily, leaning over on his paw while he watched the odd couple go into their squad car.

“Those two…” He chuckled softly, his paw grabbing his notepad. “I guess it’s a start.”

‘Dan? Are you asleep yet?’ Phil spoke from outside in the same way as any other sleepless nights, softly, uncertainly.

Dan had already taken off his T-shirt and joggers, partially lying but not sleeping at all. ‘No, why?’ he mumbled absentmindedly. He didn’t even bother to shift half of his attention from his phone screen to the person standing outside his bedroom.

‘I can’t sleep.’ The door opened a little. Dan put down his phone and saw his flatmate’s head sticking in. ‘Talk to me.’

. Enjoy!

The mobile applications that make AKB’s Kizaki Yuria’s tension rise

[There’s a difference in the way AKB members and SKE members take selfies]

Making her appearance this time is Kizaki Yuria, who transferred from SKE to AKB last year and is now Team B’s captain. She also plays Magic in the  currently distributed on Hulu series – Majisuka Gakuen 5.
So what applications will Yuria, who is working on many different fronts – drama, radio, gravure photo-shoots – recommend us? Let’s find out.

- Speaking of Ms. Kizaki, what comes to mind is the fact that your phone screen broke just recently, creating quite a fuss among your fans.

Yuria: Oh yeah, that sure happened. Before that, the phone screen of another member – Iriyama Anna – had broken and I made fun of that on Twitter…However, right on the next day, my smartphone fell on the concrete and broke. Plus, it broke way worse than Iriyama’s! It got basically torn apart. So yeah, in the end we went to fix it together (laughs).

- It sounds pretty much as if you were punished! (laughs) Now let’s start talking about smartphones. What kind of applications do you usually use?


Yuria: As an AKB member, selfies are crucial, so I mostly have camera applications.

- Please tell us some camera application you would suggest!

Yuria: The ones I use the most are [Camera 360 Ultimate] and [B612]. Camera 360 takes really cute pics. To the point it wouldn’t be that hazardous to say that AKB is what it is thanks to it (laughs). B612, on the other hands, allows to take not only pics but also videos, so it’s really practical and useful.

- What kind of videos do you take?

Yuria: Just recently, when I went out to eat with Iriyama, we got a bit too excited so we filmed a clip of us improvising a silly song Iriyama had just written and composed.  (laughs) Also, when I turn the camera towards young members such as Mikichan, they immediately start doing weird faces, so I enjoy taking consecutive pics with all those expressions.

- It seems like you’re having quite a bit of fun (laughs). Now, how about you tell us your secret to take cute selfies?

Yuria: The main point is, after all, the angle. What I do is holding the phone with my right hand and taking the pic diagonally, from the upper right. I kind of decided that’s the angle for me. Apart from that, when I want to take a really cute pic, I make sure to cover my mouth. For some reason, everyone looks cuter with their mouth covered (laughs). Ah, but it’s not good to just obviously cover it with your hand, because anyone would think you’re purposely covering it. On the contrary it’s nice to do things such as, for example, lie on the bed and nonchalantly push the arm against the mouth, as it also gives off a casual feeling. My fans are probably all being deceived by these tricks (evil expression)

- Is it okay to reveal it?

Yuria: Well, I guess it’s going to be harder for me to use that trick from now on… (bitter laugh)

- By the way, as you’ve transferred from SKE to AKB, have you noticed any difference in the way of taking selfies in the two groups?

Yuria: I wonder…Well, of course it varies from member to member, but SKE members tend to be very particular about selfies, so they daringly don’t edit them at all. On the contrary, AKB members try as much as they can not to take pics entirely focused on the face, so they mostly take whole body ones.
I also think there are more members who try to make the pics look stylish by adding stickers and such in AKB.
I’ve had a period in which I was super particular about selfies like SKE members do, and I also went through a period in which I’d put stickers on the pics, but currently I aim at the kind of style that follows the “simple is best” principle.  From time to time I do use the stickers from the image editing app [CAMEREON], but I decided to put not more than one per pic.

- It sounds like you became more mature.

Yuria: That’s right. I’m getting old now, after all…

- Oh no. You’re not getting old at all! Do you look at other members’ pics?

Yuria: I always look at Kojiharu and Paruru’s photos on Instagram. Not only to use them as a reference, but also because I genuinely enjoy looking at cute things. When I look at Kojiharu and Paruru’s faces I think things such as [Ahhhh, so cute!] or [Once you’re born like that you’re automatically one of the winners] (laughs).

- So that’s what you think while looking at them (laughs). Is there someone that would exactly fit Ms. Kizaki’s tastes in regards to girls?

Yuria: Now this is an extremely hard question, but lately I’m really into the face of Nogizaka46’s Ikuta-san! (tln: not long ago she actually picked her as n°1 when asked members she’d choose as girlfriends)
Also, the fact that she can play the piano hits the bullseye of my tastes as well. Oh, and I also like the length of the bob hairstyle. How to say it? I like girls with a neat and tidy feel to them, the ones that look like they wouldn’t talk much. You know? The kind of girl that, in romance oriented games, looks like the hardest to win over. I feel like “I must win her over!” Now that I think of it, I guess that I basically do nothing but search for cute girls with my smartphone (laughs).
