Any of those who are in summer vacation, I hope you have a great time of fun at home or work lol. It’s that time to travel, chill at home, or go camping.

Also, FUNimation got the licensed to the live-adaptation of Rurouni Kenshin! If you have been following me in Twitter or read this post, I have graduated from college at CSUSB. Now that I am done with school, it’s time for another chapter in my life. Life is a mystery road with different obstacles. To be honest, I was quite nervous of revealing my face here in my blog. I hid behind the monitor as if I was hero with a mask. But, I gathered the courage to reveal myself. I made this meme on the featured picture as a dramatization of my experienced :P.
Anyway, let’s start this TGIF!
