  1. I don’t go to school, (I occasionally homeschool, I’m fifteen) so my mom wants me to make her bentos for lunch. I’m so excited to start! It’s something for me to do and it’ll make mom sooo happy. We’re geting her a Hello Kitty box and I’m going to make her kawaiiii foods. ^_^

  46. @LOLwafflesPRODUCTION American crap sucks too, you know. It’s the non-crap which doesn’t suck. The Matrix and Ghost in the Shell are both relatively awesome.

  47. @munkyfetal you do realise the matirx started befooooorrrreeee that, right? or did you not realise that no one cares, japanese crap sucks and the matrix is awsome.

    also don’t argue back, you can’t.

    arguing on the internet is like running in the special olympics, even if you win, you are still retarded
