Yesterday, I met up with a “long lost friend” whom I’ve just exchanged comments on instagram. We haven’t met each other personally before but it felt like a reunion, instead of a “first meeting”. I cannot recall how many times the web / this blog has introduced me to these wonderful people whom I really consider as friends now. I am grateful for the universe for these lovely coincidences because I actually find it rare to “connect with a person” so comfortably. Call me an old soul, but I am the person who is tremendously interested in being part of a conversation that is all about dreams, positivity, passions, adventures, and life pursuits.
This girl whom I’ve just met goes by the name Nelli and she runs a blog called “Sweets and Brains“. She is currently an English teacher in Korea. If you’d like to visit South Korea someday, please do visit her blog for cafe / travel suggestions! : )
While we we were going deeper and deeper in our conversation, I realized that we do have a lot of things in common (aside from being observant introverts haha). She studied psychology in her university and this field is actually something that I also find interesting since it mostly deals with human interaction, haha. As I was telling her about what I think about “kawaii culture”, she told me that my opinion about kawaii could also mean “positive psychology”. And when she said that, it gave me goosebumps. The feel-good goosebumps. I guess she hit the right words that I’ve been trying to also figure out in my mind. Indeed, the way I plan to “spread kawaii” through my blog and collaborative projects is also my way to spread and educate others that かわいい can be a positive mindset, rather than the usual keywords about kawaii: fashion, character goods, dolly dresses, and the like.
