My Return From Camp!

Minnasan, konnichiwa! I'm back from the Japanese Immersion Camp - unfortuneatly! It was honestly the best experience of my life (so far)! Though I'm glad to be back at home with my family, I'm going to sincerely miss all the awesome friends I made. 
Before the camp, my sole motivation for continuing Japanese through VCEs was the extra Atar marks you gain. After hearing about so many peoples' experiences with Japanese language study, however, I became increasingly interested in doing it!

Gyaru Ramblings and Such

Hi again, pretty girls and boys! So, lately I've been thinking a lot about the extremes of Gyaru fashion - like circle contact lenses and false eyelashes - and wondering when it becomes inappro- priate to wear them (in terms of age). 'Too young', for example, is a factor I've been contemplating since discovering, and choosing to join, Gyaru; but I was so excited about it in the beginning that I never really wondered if the make-up would look too mature on me. All I knew was I wanted to wear it and price didn't matter.
When I think about it, I still have the same passion for Gyaru make-up (eyemake, especially) I had in the beginning. If not, more so, as I've done a lot more research and spent a lot of time collecting tutorial scans, but I can't help but fear what my family would think because of my age (I'm fifteen, going on sixteen in August).
