Life Update/Rant (March-July): Shitty Part-Time Job, My Japanese Thesis & Cat Stuff [+ Giveaway Winner!]

Hey There!

First of all, thank you everyone for your patience the last couple of months. My blog has been growing at quite a fast pace and with a lot of changes happening in my life, it just wasn't the easiest to catch up with all and everyone. But, now that the biggest stress factor -my Japanese thesis- is (almost) out of the way, I am super happy to sit down and have a chat with you about everything that happened the past couple of months, so I present you: a life update/rant in video format :D

The freedom of my now submitted thesis led to a creative outburst so I used the time and recorded a second youtube video so you can expect another one very very soon! I kind of got a little overexcited and recorded a whooping half an hour - oops! Guess two parts it is then. (Bonus: there will be German (with subtitles), because many of my German readers demanded it. Your wishes shall be heard!) I do hope you enjoy this little life update vlog and please let me know if you are generally interested in those kind of "private" videos or rather reviews and stuff instead? Let me know! :)

Also, my giveaway ended yesterday and thank you everyone for entering! I picked a winner randomly through the rafflecopter app after checking all the entries. -dramatic drumroll-

And the winner is......
Entry #235, Irena!

Congratulations dear! I already emailed you, please respond in the next 48 hours to claim your prize or I'll have to draw another winner. To everyone who didn't win, don't fret. I'm working on a new giveaway pretty soon! :) I just love making gifts.

Let me know how you like the video and if you have any wishes for future videos! (although the list of videos I want to do is quite long already...too little time!) Hope you all have a great summer at the moment (it's way too hot for my taste in Germany at the moment..) I have to work through my birthday (3rd of July) so not sure when exactly the next update will be as I'm quite busy with meeting friends, going to the hairstylist again and having a birthday BBQ, hrhrhr. Make sure to follow me on Instagram if you want to keep in touch! :)

Have a great day everyone!
Lots of love,

oh, hello there. i'm yasuhiro mochizuki and i'm the cool kid who made this layout. i'd rather you not attempt to take this code and alter it or take this code, strip it down, and use it as a base code. if you really need a base code that badly, feel free to send me an email with what type of base code you need and we can talk about it. that said, i can't take credit for absolutely everything here. so here are all the dope resources i used here: all of the fonts used in this layout can be credited to google fonts save for calibri, which is a system font. the social media sidebar links were created using an icon font from we ♡ icon fonts. most scripts used can be found through a good google search, except for the script that gives the page it's tabs; i don't remember whether i hand coded that or if i found it through another blogger. if you're privy, you can find me predominantly on twitter and occasionally on my blog. toodles!
