I love seeing my city from different views. #Toronto
My sad vagina buffet for
#FanExpo weekend. I hate my uterus.

It feels tradition to take these “before” shots when I cut and dye my hair now, and who am I to go against tradition? #dontlookatme
I woke up, stood up, and then had an abortion on the floor. 🔪
This is the beginning of the whole so-called “kawaii culture” and it started because girls started using mechanical pencils, which provided fine handwriting. After being banished (more precisely, during the 80s), this kind of writing started being used in products like magazines and make-up. And, during this time, icons we usually associate with the whole kawaii industry (like the characters from Sanrio) came to life too.
And what many people don’t realize is that this subculture was born as a way for young girls to express themselves in their own way. And it was also used as something against the adult life and the traditional culture, often seen as dull and boring and oppressive. By embracing cuteness, these young girls (and adult women, after a while) were showing non-conformation with the current standards.
So yep. Kawaii is important, and it all started with cute, simple hand writting a few hearts and cat faces in some girls’ school notebooks <3
