Wake up really early one morning, like 4am, and take a drive to your nearest park/ beach/ city centre/ town centre. I find the world looks a lot different and a lot more beautiful when everything is still asleep. Admire the beauty in the things around you: the different shades of green on the leaves of the trees, the crack on the pavement under your feet, the way the sky changes colour just before the sun rises.
Compliment someone. It sounds weird, but by complimenting someone or simply making someone smile it makes your heart feel warmer. Watch how their eyes crinkle when they smile; notice how when they blush their cheeks go the colour of lake hillier; recognise how their lips curve when they laugh. Realise that you made that happen. Keep doing it to different people.
Look at pictures of puppies/ kittens/ fluffy animals and let yourself giggle.
Go to your mirror and look at yourself the way you look at your friends. Love the way that your hair falls on your shoulders and the fact that you have smaller boobs than most other girls you know. Realise that beauty doesn’t have a category, and you should treat yourself like a work of art.
Go shopping by yourself. Buy yourself a cute dress or a new book or both. Ask the person in the shop if you can change into the dress you just bought and be surprised by how friendly she is. Grab some lunch, read your new book in the park. Watch how people interact. Look at the young families and how they try to entertain their new baby. Look at the group of friends who are so happy in that precise moment. Look at the old couple sitting on the bench and wonder about their lives. Count the clouds in the sky and feel the grass in between your toes.
Laugh at yourself. Life is the hardest thing you will ever face and we all make really really stupid mistakes sometimes, but that’s okay. Learn to laugh at the things that you have learned and tell others about them. Listen when they laugh with you and tell you about a similar mistake they made once, too, and realise how nothing is permanent.
Don’t like your hair? Cut it. Is there someone in your life who makes you feel really low? Drop them- you need to surround yourself with radiators, not drains. Want to start a new hobby? Go do it. Life won’t wait for you, you have to reach out to life. Once you do it, you will never stop wondering about why you didn’t do it sooner.
Do whatever you fucking want. We’re all on this planet for a reason and that’s to carry out our own individual journeys. Don’t get thrown off your path by someone who hasn’t walked down it themselves.
Sit outside one night and look at the sky. Think about how big the universe is and how whatever is bothering you right now will soon go away. Realise you can only take things one step at a time, and know that that’s okay.
I hope you all meet someone who treats you like no one else does. I hope their voice sounds like home to you. I hope they make your cheeks hurt from smiling so damn much and your heart warmer than the sweatshirts they let you borrow. I hope they kiss you everywhere and tell you how much they love you. I hope they care about your day and ask about your thoughts. I hope you all find what you’re looking for exactly when you need it most.
Oikawa has sense, and doesn't lack effort, but when you compare him to the mass of talent named Kageyama that's two years younger than him, Oikawa is an efficient player, but not a genius. I can say with confidence that, at this point of time, the one who is a better setter.... is Oikawa!

Spring spring spring spring Spring came…. and now the weather is back to being depressingㅠㅠ The final cold spell also visited a few days ago..
Everyone’s doing alright, right!? I am doing well!!
The new semester has started, did you guys make a lot of friends!!
As the weather is slowly starting to get better, I feel my body and heart is getting warmer as well.. However!! You know that the more the weather is like this, you have to be careful not to catch a cold right!? Eat a lot of vitamins.. You can’~t kick your blankets saying it’s hot and then fall asleep all cold!!
Dazai:I love it when you stroke my hair. I feel as if we can understand each other through the contact between your hand and my hair. I love your voice. Just hearing you say one word makes my heart feel warmer. I love your eyes. Normally, they look stern, but when you’re being kind to someone, I love the way they soften. I love your fingers. For a boy, you have such lovely fingers. But when they clutch me, I know they are the strong, slender fingers of a man. I love the way you look when you sleep. You look unguarded, like an infant, and your eyelashes are on the long side. When I touch your cheek, you calm down… And when I playfully touch your lips, you don’t even notice… And it makes my heart ache terribly. I love you.
First couple of commissions for the dreamy glamorous Leversa! The summery colours and concepts she suggested totally pulled at my warmer-weather heart, ha~ And Felicity and Anicotti are the most lovely little characters, I adore everything about their designs.
I hope you like these, they were uber rad to draw and paint~
