I love the idea of language level stamps, but I often feel that people give themselves too much credit when deciding what level they are at so I will try and avoid this at all cost - hence, the explanation following the stamps.
<--- I've studied it pretty much all my life and use it everyday. Took classes for 10 years. I wouldn't call myself an expert - especially because there's no "native" stamp so "level: expert" should be considered native and I'm not that good.
<--- Took classes for 4 years (from 7th-10th grade). Still consider myself a beginner 'cause I'm not very good. I read and understand German better than I write and speak it.
<--- Took classes for 3 years (throughout gymnasiet (high school)), but I consider myself a beginner. I don't remember all that much, but I can still read, understand, write and speak some Spanish.
<--- For half a year, my major was Japan studies at university. I'm probably better at German and Spanish. And no, I'm not some weeaboo. I take an actual interest in Japanese people and their history and culture.
For obvious reasons, I can read and understand Norwegian and Swedish for the most part.
I would love to make a section with my favorite movies and music, but unfortunately, the lack of stamps wouldn't allow it And writing a list would ruin the concept I've got going on here xD --------------------------------------------------------------------------
I don't mind if you "hit and run." I will never beg for llamas, comments, faves, watches. I won't tell you to stop thanking me for faves, always thank me for faves, send back llamas or anything like that. You do whatever you feel like doing 'cause I do too !

I'm finally back from the Danish convention, J-Popcon, and I just wanted to share the highlights of my experience and pictures with you ^^!
The convention took place in DGI Byen in Copenhagen (28th - 30th of March) and 2000+ people participated (as far as I know) - making it the biggest convention of its kind in Denmark.
First of all, the program for this year was packed so that it was difficult to decide which events to go to. Friday, the first event my friend and I went to was Yohio's concert. It was a pretty dull concert since (I guess) many didn't know him that well or the lyrics of his songs. He seemed tired and a bit edgy. So when he couldn't fire up the crowd properly, he appeared to get even more annoyed. He was acting sort of unprofessional, but I don't blame him. At least he tried and he finished his concert and signing session as planned. Aaaand he was nice enough to give something many J-Poppers wanted... yaoi. By a complete coincidence, I caught this on camera. His bassist was fucking hot and he was really nice and professional (he really did everything in his power to try and create a festive atmosphere. (He later told Dikute and me that he thought we Danes were a real tough crowd, lol xD)) Here, have some live bromance:
After the concert, he had a signing session. Dikute and me got in line after buying a copy of his CD, but got out of line again as soon as his bass and guitar player casually strolled into the room. I have no idea who the bassist is, but I'm officially a fan! We just had to get their signatures. *Fangirl squeal* the bassist is so hot and he was so much fun and appeared really nice too! I'm in love xD Someone on Facebook finally told me his name. Here he is: twitter.com/DESAIHA_Fredrik instagram.com/desaiha_fredrik (He's the one with the spider bite (he has good taste in piercings !))
We got a picture together with Yohio as well, but that picture will stay hidden forever for one simple reason: when I get my picture taken with celebrities, I manage to look my worst EVERY SINGLE TIME xD!
I actually think that's the only event we went to that day? We used the rest of that Friday to check out different areas like Artist Alley, Dealers Room, etc.. -------------------------------------------------------
We got up late Saturday since both of us hadn't gotten much sleep the night before and therefore were pretty damn exhausted.
The biggest event we went to that day was the Cosplay show. Some of the acts really surprised me with how good they were. One drew a sword out of nothing (making it look like it came out of a girl's stomach just when everybody thought they were about to kiss), one of the acts featured an amazing spaceship prop and really intense drama and one act had a big statue of a sun goddess containing a real life person. I was so surprised when she broke down the statue from inside and suddenly popped out, ready to fight the other girl on stage. Generally, I was really impressed with the props and costumes.
Other than that, we went back to the Dealer Room to buy a couple of things and gifts, tried some Ramune (Japanese soda), this weird mochi candy thing, relaxed in the 18+ lounge, checked out the game room, bought a few things in Artist Alley, looked at awesome cosplayers, went back to the 18+ lounge when it was time for 18+ fanfiction bedtime stories and took a quick peek inside Øksnehallen during the masquerade before walking home... which took longer than expected, to put it lightly xD!! It was supposed to take around 40 minutes to get home, but we kept getting lost and ended up getting to our friend's apartment over 1 and a half hour later. How the hell we managed to take all the wrong turns when going home, but NOT when we were going to the con, I have no idea. We are just that awesome, I guess xD!!
Everything was REALLY expensive in Dealers Room and I didn't have a lot of money left for that month so I only bought a few small souvenirs (though I really wanted this AWESOME and very subtle Shingeki no Kyojin hoodie! !) This is what I bought for myself:
This is so cute! It's dangling from my phone now and I simply just love it!!
Normally, I wouldn't buy posters, but it was the cheapest thing there and I wanted something to remind me of the con xD
Bookmarks. Makoto, Bertolt and Jean look so cute here *-*! Levi is for a gift for a friend, though.
Gifts for friends:
Melon Ramune (a soda you open by pressing a ball down the throat of the bottle. Typical Japanese snacks and a cute Iruka keychain.)
Sunday, we didn't get to go to much else than Reika's cross-dress make up workshop and the Meet and Greet session - which was totally worth it. Reika-san is fucking awesome!! She's the only proper cosplayer I know by name and damn, she. is. GOOD!
Pictures from her workshop and signing session:
Bought her Jean postcard so she could sign it. She's the best Jean cosplay ever! Weirdest girl-crush ever!
We also got a picture together with her. This is and Reika. It's such a cute picture of them!
I think that's all I have to say for now. Here, take some awesome pictures from the con!:
So cute! That person kept holding the bear's hand. I think the person inside the bear was having troubles with getting around xD! More pictures from a part of the Dealers Room A man reading bedtime stories (fanfiction) out loud in the 18+ lounge So many people at the cosplay show! Finally, a funny picture of Dikute and me at the con, waiting for the big cosplay show!
