On age and himono.

Age is merely a length of time, a number.

Himono is a "dried-fish woman [himono onna - 干物女]: Himono onna (”dried-fish woman”), an expression used in the movie Hotaru No Hikari to describe the main character, a woman in her 20s who has renounced the pursuit of romance. She spends her evenings reading manga and drinking at home alone, and she spends her weekends lazing around in bed."

        Now before you follow this thread and assume that I'm one of those typical teenage girls, let me tell you that I am a self-confessed HIMONO.    

Guess the age? 
I am in my 20s... soon to be mid-20s.
Still no romance in life.
Addicted to not manga,but kpop and Asian series.
I drink beer alone in my room while surfing the net.
I spend my weekends either in the boxing gym or lazing in bed.

But of course, I used to be a workaholic girl in the field of Media
and Advertising. 

Now..... I'm getting into something SERIOUS.


Here's to a 2010 Summer. I started blogging again just so I could share things and maybe stop people from becoming "Himonos".
