I had to use this song to help me create the lyrics in my own way. But I got something really good! So here it is. Oh and this isn’t the actual translation. If you want the actual translation, go look it up.
You said something to me, and it kinda pierced through me.
I don’t know why it bothered me, it just did.
But hearing it from you made me feel like I wasn’t myself.
I pouted, but you saw though it. You did the next best thing after.
Made me smile.
You’ve seen me when I’m down.
You’ve seen me when I’m happy
You’ve been there when I needed someone’s hand to hold on to.
I know you’re always there for me
I know you’re trying to help me out
Saying thank you isn’t enough, but you’re my most precious treasure.
You reminded me of something so simple that I forgotten.
My grandfather told me this one thing.
You can’t change the past just as you can’t change the flow of the wind and water.
I have to keep looking forward and stand up tall towards my path that I face.
Even if I’m all alone
Even if I’m left crying by myself.
I know that you’ll be there with open arms to hold me close and tight
If I try and close my eyes,
I can hear you calling out to me
And for some reason now that is my most precious treasure that I hold.
Here’s to our 6th year of being together. And hope for many years to come.
So about a month ago, I actually gave some thought about changing myself. Why don’t I just become muscular? So I decided to start lifting. Within a month, I am actually seeing results. I would post pics but my “chubbiness” still hides my muscles. But I can feel myself changing.
Before I did start on my diet, I weighed about 345lbs. Now I’m actually down to 285lbs. My goal right now is to hit 270 and be able to lift 50lbs dumbbells. So around 2 months I have lost 60lbs and have still kept it off. I’m starting to think that people have their own way of losing the pounds. For me, it was just changing the way I ate. I didn’t follow a 2000 calorie plan. (Or maybe I did. I didn’t add up the calories I had each day. I want to say I ate like 2700 to 3000 calories.) I rarely ate fast food. (If I did, it would of been something that I knew for sure would fill me up for a long period of time.) And lucky for me I don’t have a sweet tooth. So I pretty much cut out sugar. (Aside from like 1 or 2 bottles of pop.) My exercise consisted of doing basic martial arts and swordsmanship, to walking, playing dance dance revolution, and playing video games that made me move.
I guess you can do anything as long as you put your mind into it. You just have to remember that only you can change yourself. No one else can change you.
I know right? Not much change huh? I don’t know what people are saying that I have changed a lot. I just don’t see it. I’m not too worried about it.
So my brother comes up with this idea of me being one. Mainly because I’m in between the husky build and a chubby build. So I sat there thinking about it and I came to the conclusion that I might as well try. I could use the muscle strength. And besides, it could be a nice change to my lifestyle. Since I somehow lost 50lbs by just changing my diet. (Thank you being unemployed. Forcing me to eat less, spend only what I need to, saving a lot of food…) I guess I need to do more research on what I need to do in order for me to become one… any advice would be great.
Ok so I think I told my friends that I was going to grow a fu-manchu last month around this time… It’s been one month and it’s been growing… only thing is… they’re saying I look like a Chinese mafia. First I thought, “Hahahaha, that’s funny.” Then after looking at myself in the mirror. I started having second thoughts. You know, I kind of do look like a Chinese mafia. Hopefully people won’t be scared of me….? Anyways I’ll let you guys judge for yourself. And yes, I’m still trying to grow it out. It’s not really at the fu-manchu level but it will be.
A friend of mine actually asked me this. Of course to most people, this question is pretty tough since they might not like what they want. As for myself, I think I know the answer to this. Even though I’m not a big fan of the character as much but hey… I’m like her. So who is this character you ask? Why it’s none other than Flandre Scarlet.
Who is Flandre Scarlet?
Well according to Zun’s profile on her…
Sister of the Devil
Ability: Destruction of anything and everything
The Extra Boss. Also the Mistress’s younger sister.
She is a vampiric magical girl and has been the Scarlet Devil’s younger sister for about 495 years.
She’s kind of nuts and isn’t usually allowed out of the mansion, but she usually doesn’t try to let herself out.
She really respects her older sister Remilia, but her raw destructive power far exceeds that of her sister’s. Although she is usually docile, her insanity makes it difficult for others to understand her.
When vampires attack humans, they generally try to take their prey alive so that they can suck its blood afterward, but Flandre has always been fed with cooked dishes, so she doesn’t know how to properly attack a human. Whenever she tries to attack a human, she can’t control herself and blows them away without leaving a spot of blood.
Perhaps she can’t tell that her daily meals are made from living humans.
Her meals look like such harmless foodstuffs as cake and tea, after all…”
So Why Flandre?
Well even though she is a bit psychotic and insane, but she does have a calm and quiet side too. (Well as what most doujin circles made her out to be.) But also if you read what Zun wrote on her profile, (hinting at “Although she is usually docile, her insanity makes it difficult for others to understand her”) So I am assuming that she can be normal at most times, but when she goes into her insane mode, then you’re kinda screwed. I ended up choosing her because I can relate to her more easily than any other video game characters.
And why is that?
Lets take a look at some of her profile in Perfect Memento
- Flandre doesn’t have many friends, and even her older sister Remilia is hardly ever with her.
This is true for me as well. I don’t really have that much friends at all. Well I do have friends, but I’m not the popular type. Hell most of my friends are just new people that I have met. I haven’t really had the time to know more about them.
- She apparently rarely, if ever, attends the parties at the mansion.
Same here! I don’t go out and party as much as I should. Even if I do get invited, I just don’t go for some reason.
- Normally she’s locked up in the mansion, but it seems she might actually be a shut-in who stays there willingly.
Maybe I am a shut in? I’m not really locked up in my house, but my parents try to make stay at home at all times when I was younger… I guess it worked. Damn…
- Because she is rarely seen by visitors, there are many mysteries about her.
There are plenty of mysteries about me. If you want to know, why not just ask me up front. If you don’t think I’m being honest, present the Magatama to me and try to break my psyche-locks. (hahaha! Phoenix Wright reference!)
- She also has extreme physical strength.
- Unsurprisingly, all the toys she plays with get broken.
Yep… when I was younger, I would destroy my toys… Oh those poor old TMNT, Power rangers, Gundam… (the list goes on…) toys that I have ever owned…
So I’m going to end this as a question for you (the reader). What Video Game Character Would You Line Yourself Up With? Feel free to leave an answer in the comments.
One more thing… I am not a vampire freak.
