Now usually when I make “What’s in Your Bag” posts, I draw them. But I’ve come to realize that life is too short for that.
(And by that, I really mean that I’ve only gotten my hands on a computer today, and not being able to use my tablet for a good two and a half months has left me a little… er, disoriented, to say the least.)
〔Snoopy bag〕 from Typo! I use it as a laptop bag sometimes, but only when I need to get on a plane.
①〔Pikachu clearfile〕 I got from the Pokemon Center Tōkyō when it was still in Hamamatsuchō! I had originally only intended on getting a Stunfisk clearfile, but the Pikachu one was free! It was announcing that the PKMN Center was going to transfer to Ikebukuro’s Sunshine City… which was… so close… to where I was living at the time.
But it transferred to Ikebukuro two months after I left HUHUHUHU
② My 〔planner〕, which is also from Typo! It came with a silver pen that looks like a pencil (how deceitful). I write in it mostly in Japanese for practice, and the flaps help me store keepsakes! On the very left is purikura I took with one of my host sisters which I used to keep in my pencil case, but I decided that this was a better place to keep it (◍ ´꒳` ◍)
③ My 〔sketchbook〕 that isn’t meant for use with watercolors (which I forgot to label–eep!–but is underneath 4 and 5) but I use with watercolors anyway. So far, the only thing I’ve successfully painted is some meat. And if you compare the state of my watercolor kit with how it looked like in my previous entry… well…
④ PacSafe 〔wallet〕! I’m pretty airheaded when it comes to my belongings, so this helps keeps my money safe. Normally I’m into cuter wallets, but I’d rather stay practical. For now, at least.
⑤ 〔iPhone 4S〕! Not pictured is my 5S, which I used to take these photos… my 4S basically acts as my iPod right now lol
⑥ 〔3DS + 3DS XL〕! THERE IS A REASON WHY I HAVE TWO, I PROMISE. The white one in the beat-up elephant case is my Japanese 3DS, while my pink XL is in English! I don’t get to add funds to my Japanese Nintendo account (sadface) but Japan gets toooons of free games and stuff for the 3DS, so it’s all good. (Also, I got to download Japan-exclusive MH4G DLC! … No, no, I’m not talking about the Airou a certain Olympic Gold Medalist created.)
I customize my NA 3DS a lot more! And I buy more games (groans gently). The Onemuri Pikachu theme makes the Pokemon Center healing sound when you start up your 3DS and it is So Cute. JUST LOOK AT PIKACHU’S FACE AND TELL ME IT’S NOT CUTE. ꒰╬•᷅д•᷄╬꒱ ⑦ 〔Writing materials〕! I’m picky and only use Pilot Color Eno 0.7 mechanical pencils to write/draw with lol. I use colored lead for the pink pencils and 2B lead for the green one! I don’t know why I feel like I need to carry so much lead on me at all times. Also, my handy-dandy eraser.
⑧ Daiso‘s 〔makeup corrector〕. My best friend. I once took off a full-face of makeup with this little guy
to test my ability out of desperation. No, but seriously. This is extremely handy, especially when your eyeliner starts to run because of the sticky summer heat. (Gross.)
⑨ A 〔face (?) brush〕 that I also got at Daiso, that I use with 11!
⑩ too cool for school‘s 〔Sunday Block SPF 50 PA+++〕. I don’t actually know why I carry this around since I keep forgetting to reapply sunblock, but maybe I do it in the hopes that one day, I actually will remember to reapply my sunblock.
But that day is probably far off.
⑪ Shiseido‘s 〔Medicated Pressed Baby Powder〕! Keepin’ my face in place since I got it a month ago. Helps with sweat and oil and all that other face gunk, basically. It also smells really nice.
⑫ Tony Moly‘s 〔Banana Hand Milk〕. Basically, it me. It’s even shaped like a banana Which Is The Best Part. It’s banana-scented and it helped me realize that Juicy Fruit is supposed to be banana-scented. (How are bananas juicy? How?) Also… the texture used to be a lot more smooth and milk-like, and now it’s just… like mashed bananas pushed through an extruder. Maybe it’s the heat? The heat… cooked… I don’t even know.
⑬ A 〔Little Twin Stars cosmetics case〕 I got from Daiso! I love Kiki and Lala so much that it’s a little embarrassing, lmao. I regularly look at their section of the Sanrio store website then cry myself to sleep at night. I originally used this as a pill case, but since then I’ve gotten a different pill case for my medicine, so instead…
I use it for candy! LOL
I normally carry around candy (Lemon Suppaichū is what I usually have, but I haven’t been able to buy some again lately), and this week’s candy just so happens to be Milky! It’s good for the summer–soft, sweet, and most important of all, it doesn’t melt.
I talked a little about my 「冒険らいだーななIN東京」(that was a really bad pun) in this post, but hopefully I’ll get to talk about it on here in the future, because otherwise the people around me will never hear the end of it l o l.
Until then, fare ye well! (`･ε´-ゞ)
