So I don’t have a job anymore, because I quit. Mum’s been nagging me about it, but she just doesn’t understand: I AM going to make tons of money making videos and online reviews on Japanese products. It’s a growing market, and people online do it! All you need is passion and a camera, although having an easy-to-listen-to voice helps. Not sure if that’s me, but I’m not going to let that hold me back from success.
This is my dream…and I have the motivation to make it happen!
I already made my first video review, on Flower Bumblebee Magic Star X, which I only knew about because I did that little bit of child-minding at the indoor play centre. Melbourne has a booming anime industry, and also a booming kids party venue industry, and there’s still the unpleasant stigma that Japanese animation is meant for kids. One of my first goals after becoming Me-Straw famous is to dismantle that stereotype, but first, I have to dismantle all cartoons for children, ever. It’s an adult interest.
Remember that one set in the play centre, where the kids played and imagined magical worlds for themselves? Well, that one was in vogue for a while, and I even had a few friends on the forums saying that it was deceptively deep and meaningful. Whatever. They’re getting wrapped up in nostalgia because play centres are places of fun. They are, but just because they associate them with happy memories doesn’t make the show good or deep. Why do people have to try and making things unnecessarily complicated.
Besides, going to a kids party venue close to Melbourne reminds me of my child-minding job, which in turn reminds me of the money I could be making reviewing Japanime. Which is why I’m focusing on the monstrosity that is Flower Bumblebee Magic Star X, which…
No, people could steal my idea. I’ll save that for the video.
