今年買ってよかったもの5つ

5位: スキレット鍋

友達が来た時にアヒージョを作りたくなり、近所の謎の店で購入。その後も主にアヒージョを作るときに重宝している。

4位: アロマディフューザー (無印良品)

ずっと欲しかったものを突然購入。のんびりとできるし気分が高まる。なお使っているアロマは生活の木より。

3位: iPhoneX (Apple)

元々 iPhone6sが遅すぎてイラついていたところにiOS11かなんかの不良ではあったけど、iPhoneが落ちまくったのがムカつき、購入をきめた。iPhoneXだから最高というより、買い換えるという行為が必要であった感。

2位: TV (Sony)

前のテレビは本当にポンコツで何もできなかった。映るだけ。最近のTVはすごい。Youtubeやhuluなども見れるし、HDD繋ぐだけで録画ができる。我が家はNHKの以下の番組を録画しており、かなり観ている。また、Youtubeやhuluをかなり観るのでTVの活躍場面が増えた。今やなくなったらかなり困るもの。

1位: Switch (任天堂)

Switchは本当にすごい。本当にすごいゲーム機だ。VRとかそっち方向への進化は感じていたけれども、据え置き型プラス携帯型のゲーム機というのはユーザーのニーズに合致している。出しているソフトもすごい。どれも面白い任天堂の主力の作品をつぎ込んで来ている。我が家はSplatoonを一緒にやりたくて2台目を購入。定価ではなかったがあのタイミングで買う選択をした自分は間違っていなかったと思う。お陰で沢山の時間をえあんぬと2人で遊ぶことができた。まだまだこれから出るソフトへも期待が高まる。

なお私はまだゼルダもマリオもクリアしていないので、そろそろ本腰入れて進めたい。

今年良かった作品たち

アニメや漫画やゲーム

・進撃の巨人

アニメのシーズン2が良すぎてその場で全巻をKindleで購入したところ、シーズン2の終わりはまだまだ序盤の方で更に壮大な話が広がっておりびっくりしすぎてしまいました…。その後も漫画は新刊が出るたびに買っているけれども、どんどん謎が明らかになり複雑になり、面白い。最初は巨人に食べられるだけの漫画かなと思っててすみませんでした。これからも期待。

・アイドリッシュセブン

友人に勧められてハマった男子アイドル系音ゲー。ただしキャラ萌えに限らず、ストーリーがめちゃくちゃ良い。音ゲーというよりもノベルを聞いている感じ。しかもフルボイス。1月からアニメ化も決まり、先行上映があったんだけるど、かなり出来がいい。来年も期待。

・宝石の国

私は作者の方も漫画も存じておらず、アニメ化の時点でみんなが騒いでるのがなぜかわからないまま放映日が過ぎていた。でもなんとなく観ようかなと思って観たら、世界観がすごく好きで漫画も全巻Kindle購入。最新刊まで読んでます。やっぱり人間が滅んだ後の世界というのは非常に魅力的に思える。興味がある。

海外ドラマ

・ゲームオブスローンズ

去年から観てたと思うけど、今年が一番ハマった。全世界同時の最新シリーズも1話ずつAmazonでレンタルして観たレベル。本当にオススメしづらい海外ドラマではあるけれども、多少のグロOK、性的なシーンOKなら観て欲しい。最初は面白さがわからないかもしれないけれど、段々と人々のつながりが見えてくると面白いし、シーズン8とか本当にやばすぎた。これからがまだまだ楽しみ。

・マジシャンズ

私は魔法使いというものが本当に大好きなんだけれど、このドラマはダークファンタジー。キャラクターの服装とかもすごく好きで真似したくなっちゃう。思ったよりもかなり暗めなんだけど、ダークファンタジー好きはマストで観て欲しい。なお、まだ日本語字幕はシーズン1までしか出てないので追いつくなら今よ!

海外ドキュメンタリー

・ルポールのドラァグレース

ドラァグをご存知?ゲイの人たちが女装をしてパフォーマンスするカルチャー。女性になりたい人もいれば、そうじゃない人もいてそうじゃない人の方が多い印象。このレースでは、お題に沿って各自がパフォーマンスしたり、衣装を作ったりする。毎シーズン出てくる人たちが違うのでどこのシーズンから見てもOK。お気に入りの人ができると応援したくなるし、毎回脱落者が出るのでハラハラ。まずドラァグというカルチャーを私も知らなかったので、見た時は驚いたけど今じゃ本物を見てみたいまであるし、あのド派手な感じを真似してみたくなっちゃう!

あとは、今年は料理やお茶に重きを置いた年だった。あとは写真がボードゲームばかりでもっとボードゲームボードゲームしてきた年。来年の目標も貯金です。

I do not know how many people like abstract boardgames.
I do not see the tweet of abstract board games so much, so I’m little sad.

I enjoyed the different between Japan and India.

We bought Caverna! airtoxin and I ordered Caverna at the same time. We didn’t know that each other. Usually, airtoxin buy boardgames and he tells me to buy games, but he didn’t do that about Caverna because he wanted to make me surprised. I canceled my order.

Before playing Cavrna at the first time, it takes time to understand the rule. However, if you played Agricora, it’s easy to get used to Cavrna. Cavrna is easier than Agricora, because Agricora is difficult to keep to feed and just need foods to survive. In Cavrna, we need to feed but we don’t have to stay focus only about that. We can do anything as we can. Just think what I want, and make a plan. Usually, I want to have many animals and try to have many animals!

Oh I joined “English boardgames” too. It was very fun, but I couldn’t explain about the rule so much. I cannot come up the words at an instance. I just need to practice to explain rules! I really enjoyed so I want to play boardgames in English again.

 -Movie

I watched “About Time” again. I really love this movie and it made me happy.
I watched “Kimi no na wa” in the theater. I am a fan of Shinkai Makoto, so I was surprised
at his new movie, because it was totally difference from other his movies. I just like his old style,a and I could not understand character feeling of Kimi no na wa. However, I was glad that Kimi no na wa is sold well.

-Anime

I watched Danganronpa 3. It was so discusting anime, but I enjoyed.
My friend recommend the OP of Dangaronpa 3, so I started wathing it.

-Music

Favorite songs

-Video games

I finished playing “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” (HD).
It was awesome. There are so many new items and actions, so it made me exicited.
I highly recommend to play this game.
Also, I really want to play new Zelda!

I started playng “Call of Duty4: Modern Warfare”. It’s first time to play real FPS. (I play Splatoon, but I don’t feel it is real FPS)

My life style

Recently I move to a big apartment and I can decorate our rooms as I like.
This change made me changed. I want to keep my rooms cleaned, and cook dinner everyday.
Before moving, we have too many things and didn’t have enough space to store them, so I gave up to make tidy.
But now, we have enough space to store them, and I have enough money to collect decorate things.
Dreams come true, I’ve wanted decorate as I like, but I couldn’t.

When I started living by myself, I was a university student, so my mother took me to a 100yen store, and she said to me “Buy all necessary thing in here”. At that time, 100yen store didn’t have pretty things, so I just but necessary things.
I enjoy buying interior things now, but I already bought them too much!

So, I think that environment is important for me, but I also changed my thinking.

I love entertainment such as music, anime, movie, book. I used to think that touch entertainment makes me bright, so I spend much time to that, but now I don’t think that.
I used to be depressed, and I studied how to be happy, then I noticed.
“Happiness don’t come suddenly. Happiness piles a little by little every day. So, to live calmly and relax is important for us.”
After I noticed that, I tried to make every day count. I live with the precious person and try to create good time every day.
For that, to clean rooms and to cook are important I think.
I study and exercise every day, but they are not too much. I do not push myself.
My character is easy to be strict to me, so I used to be depressed.
Now, my life is satisfied.

These photos are dinner I made.

Geocashing

I started new hobby in the bignning of November. It is “Geocashing”!

https://www.geocaching.com/

Geocashing is the game of finding treasures which are hiding all over the world.
There are many treasures hided in Japan, too.

Register an account on the Geocashing official page, search the treasure by GPS.
There are many intresting treasures.
A treasure page includes discription and hint.
Many treasures are hided in little nice place where maybe we don’t know.

The treasure is not real treasure, but if you find it, you can understand this is the treasure you finding. The treasure is called “cashe” and almost cashes have log notes we can write date and name.

IMG_8351.JPG
This is the one of cashes I found.

When I look for cashe, I use iPhone app. The app told me how long distance it takes between me and cashe.

Then, cashes are hided by Geocashing users, so I can hide and register a cashe on Geocashing official page, too.
If I hide a cashe, I have to maintenance sometimes.

I’m really keen on Geocashing now, so I’ve found cashes after work and weekend.
I like taking a walk and taking a photo, but if I don’t have any goals, it’s difficult for me to take a walk in unfamiliar place.
Therefore, I’ve found cashes with taking a walk and taking a photo.
Geocashing is really great hobby for me, and I recommend everyone.

Starting blog

I quit twitter.
Actually, I stop to watch Timeline on twitter.

There are many reasons, but I think that I spent a lot of time for twitter the past few years.
I met my special person and friends by chance on twitter, but recently I am tired to know what people do and think every time.
Of course, I wanna to continue being friends, but probably some people will drift apart.
This is natural.

Then, I try to express my thinking here in English.
I will spend my time for me from now on.
For studying, watching movie/drama/anime, making music…
