Get Moe-vated! – How Anime Has Inspired Me To Go Out And Do Stuff

It’s funny. I can have all of my friends and family telling me to learn something, and I will stubbornly refuse to because I’m lazy. The moment a fictional anime character does something and I think “Oh man, that’s sick, I wanna do that”, I literally go out and do it after a few days. Anime has this influence on my actions that is both … Continue reading Get Moe-vated! – How Anime Has Inspired Me To Go Out And Do Stuff
