The Rhine Falls and a fleet-footed summer beginning

The Rhine Falls and a fleet-footed summer beginning

Hey Everybody! :hionigiri: Summer, with its nice as well as less attractive features has finally reached Switzerland and its population. I like summer, don’t get me wrong.. But there are different little things I have to take care of in order to make summer a hundred per cent enjoyable experience even if living in the city!

It would be fantastic spending the whole summer at the seaside without school or work, taking a swim in the deep blue ocean whenever you like and get incredibly tanned :nyan:..but I’m far away from it. I’m happy if I can get two weeks of holidays this summer and that’s it. Nevertheless I try to enjoy my summer even here in this semi-crowded city (semi because in comparison to other cities the population density of Zurich is still quite human..). Fortunately there are dozens of places you can go to for swimming and tanning. Many lakes and pools with expansive, well-kept public green space give Zurich a green and actually fresh appearance. Sure there are still places you preferentially avoid like for example hot rooms with thick air and trolleys, trams and trains packed with smelly, sweaty people but sometimes such situations are unavoidable in a city. I just try to go to the lake or pool as soon as possible every day and study there..:hehe:. Being in this green surrounding lifts my mood and makes me almost as happy as being at the seasite..:miam:

Today we went for a quick side-trip to the Rhine Falls:

Cosplaying or: How much I love my Nekomimi

Hey Everyone! :hello:

Last night I dreamt of cakes, coverd in bittersweet chocolate…:hehe:. What could that mean? Anyway, my stressful week is over but I still can’t put my feet up since there are four more annoying exams approaching what means: studying once more for this weekend! But I guess these personal affairs are no matter of public interest so I’m changing the topic before you damn me for my boring posts :boxkitten:. Uka, Linda & Kogoeru haven’t shown any sign of life yet! (There are still 3 days left though :klimper:).. still boring, I know..So now a little bit about the convention I went to last weekend. If you live in the German-speaking part of Switzerland and love Anime&Manga conventions you’ve probably heard about the JAN (JapAniManga Night). For me it was the first JAN and an interesting experience! Not least because I finally got to meet Miho-chan! I’m still picking out the pictures worth seeing (I took over 400 pictures..) so for now I’m only going to show you some pictures of me. :wink: The Nemu Kurotsuchi costume is far away from perfection but hey, that’s my first try :hehe:.. I wish though I had worn white socks with it..

As usual I couldn’t resist buying some cute things such as a pair of white Nekomimi (cat ears) and a red Mameshiba..(the one in the school girl pictures) I always get kind of irritated when I look at the prices of the giant Lovechan or Rilakkuma plushies sold at these conventions because in Japan you can win them easily by playing ufo catcher for 200 Yen.. :ghihi:.. but I’m very fond of my new pair of Nekomimi (cat ears) which I would love to wear every day!!! They look so cute and there are many different ways to attach them. The inside is pink but it’s not visible since I wear them like Chobit ears..:kitten:
The day after the convention I came back from school and missed them so much that I had to wear them and start taking pictures instantly even before eating lunch and studying math (insane anyone?)….. by the way, no, I’m not wearing circle lenses :nope:

Here my silly Nekomimi snaps:
