My Favorite Things: October 2016

October 11th, 2016

It’s time for another round of My Favorite Things, a link-up hosted by Raisa and Eirene! I’m sad that this is the last one in the link-up, so I wanted to make sure I participated this month. I’m going to miss it! I will probably continue the series on my own once in a while because it’s fun to recap things I’ve enjoyed recently :)

Stranger Things


After being asked multiple times whether I’ve seen Stranger Things by friends, I can finally say yes. The show centers around the disappearance of a boy and all the weird things that happen afterwards. I love the 80s feel, and all of the mysterious things going on really pulled me in. I watched a couple episodes during the week, but then just binge watched the last 6 episodes on a Saturday. So good! I’m loving the Netflix series, so next up is to finish Luke Cage!

My Favorite Things: September 2016

September 6th, 2016

Before getting back to my Japan entries, I wanted to do this month’s My Favorite Things hosted by Raisa and Eirene! I’ve been watching and playing a few new things recently that I wanted to share :D

Show: Young Justice


Growing up, I loved watching the old Batman animated series on TV, and I haven’t really followed a super hero cartoon since then. A couple coworkers highly recommended Young Justice, and since it was on Netflix, I gave it a try. I’m really liking it! It features Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Miss Martian, and Artemis, and it’s nice to see characters who are typically sidekicks as the stars of the show. I’m still in first season, and I’ve been told second season is even better, so I can’t wait to watch more!

My Favorite Things: April 2016

April 5th, 2016

It’s been a few months since I last did this link-up! I think I just had a period where I didn’t have new, interesting things to share. My Favorite Things is a monthly link-up hosted by Raisa and Eirene, and these are my recent favorites!

Sewing: Pattern Weights


I’ve seen pattern weights before that were pretty much bean bags, but I wasn’t interested in them until I saw these that were shaped to fit pattern shapes. I love that it has curved pieces to put near neck or arm holes, and they are actually heavier than they look. They keep my patterns firmly in place while I trace them on fabric. It saves me time since I don’t have to pin them to the fabric anymore!

Anime: Parasyte -the maxim-


I actually watched this back in December and have been wanting to write about it. This Anime was a pleasant surprise, and I liked it more than I expected to. It’s about parasites that suddenly appear on Earth and have the ability to take over a body if it reaches the brain. After taking over a human, they start hunting and eating other humans.

The story focuses on Shinichi, who managed to stop the parasite from reaching his brain. Instead, it takes over his right hand! The series quickly gets interesting as the parasites evolve and start to question their existence and what it really means to be “human”. I will warn you that the Anime is very bloody and gory, but if you can stomach it, I highly recommend it. It’s one of the more memorable series I’ve seen in a while.
