Weekend activities for Japanese youths

japanese  manga

According to some studies, the youth of today are leaning toward the ‘dark spirit’ and the Japanese youth are no exception. Older adults claim that this so-called ‘dark spirit’ is very much different from the youth’s gloomy days. What are the weekend activities for the Japanese youth?

Most of the Japanese youth have a taste for medical and pathological things. They are quite proud to announce that they’ve slashed wrists and that they were given prescription medicines. These things are really extraordinary and have caught the older adults by surprise.

The music industry is also among the top influences for the youth. Rock groups are really popular and their song’s dark lyrics are gathering more fans than despite its minor-league status. Among the rock bands that older adults call as ‘sickness’ are Raphael, Mook, Kinaluna, and Caligari. You can often hear the Japanese youth talking about these rock bands because they want to share their interests with other teens.

The youth are also into ‘Goth-Loli’ fashion.goth loli fashion This kind of fashion seems to symbolize the ‘dark spirit’. The key color for this fashion trend is black although white is also used sparingly to create an effect. The whole image is almost dull and young teens usually add lace and frills. The youth today also use accessories such as crowns, crosses, and even wooden small coffins. Some young girls blacken their eye area as if to imply death masks. Way back in 2003, this fashion trend is the most popular in Japan.

Perhaps you’ve already heard about the murder case in Kawachi-Nagano. A young girl killed her family and run away with her friend. These two youths became involved in the use of cold medicines, wrist-cutting, and the Goli-Loli. Because of this incident, the Japanese youth who were into these ‘abnormal’ things were pushed into the country’s spotlight.

The Japanese youth, according to some studies, are showing a self-abusive behavior. This personality disorder is not new to the Japanese society. In fact, postwar Japanese behaviors were linked to coercion, self-abuse and addiction. The youth that time portrayed some sort of worker’s masochism and neo-masochists. They feel that if they worked very hard and bear any suffering or pain, they will be respected. Neo masochists had the habit of showing bloodied wrists to emphasize pain and suffering.

Perhaps the youth of today are very much familiar with their past and they are trying to revive it. But no matter what their reasons are, the troubled Japanese youth should avoid the so called ‘dark spirit’. These things are probably the weekend activities that keep Japanese youth occupied.

The younger generation after the postwar is already in their late 30s and 40s. They have realized their mistakes in the past and now they are on the road to healing. They don’t want the young generation of today to follow their paths. That is why the older adults are trying very hard to encourage teens to join healthier activities which can lead them to the bright side, not the dark side.

Parents play a vital role in developing their teen’s behavior or personality. Since adolescence is a period of great adjustment and exploration, parents should monitor their teen’s activities. Help them to engage in healthy weekend activities. By doing so, they can live a happier and successful life in the near future.

A Different Kind of Christmas

fashionistarocks christmasThe holidays are a time to meet up with those you love and to celebrate your precious time together on the planet earth. All of us enjoy getting together with those we enjoy spending time with, and we appreciate the limited time we get to do so. However there is a sad side to our celebrating that many have no idea how to help with.

Every year there are those less fortunate souls who cannot afford to celebrate with their loved ones. Many of these people don’t even have any loved ones left to visit, and thus they roam the streets alone. So many of us would like to show compassion and kindness to these people, but where do we even begin? How on earth can we make a difference in these people’s lives?

One of the greatest holiday gift ideas we can give this holiday season that lasts much more than any game console or new exciting technological gadget is giving of our time. Volunteering at a local church, mission or food bank is a most rewarding experience, and I highly recommend it to all who read this. Watching these lonely, almost lifeless people light up with hope and joy, just because someone who cares and loves them has come into their life, is something amazing to behold.

Serving food and drink to these less fortunate souls is also an amazing holiday gift idea. This can be done at a soup kitchen, but if one does not exist in your city or town, then an alternative would be to make up some simple paper-sack lunches with a juice box, piece of fruit, and a simple sandwich inside. If you are a believer, you could also include a scripture of how God love’s them, even in their time of need. Try this method and watch how blessed you feel when you know you have helped someone out who desperately needed it.

If giving of your time this way is not possible, another holiday gift idea would be to use your talents to create a gift. Making simple scarves and hats are easy patterns to master, whether you knit or crochet with yarn, or even sew with fleece. Another needed item are blankets – you can find several non-profit organizations who will take donations of knit or crochet squares, or even finished quilt blocks, and then their volunteers sew the blocks together to make completed blankets. These blankets are so needed for these unfortunate people, and your work will be greatly appreciated.

Another item you can make as a holiday gift idea to give away is stuffed animals. Unfortunately there resides several homeless children in this world, barely getting by while surviving with their parents on the streets and off of the trash scraps they find to eat that night. Many of these children are desperate for a compassionate person, and the volunteers who give these handmade teddy-bears will tell you how a child’s eyes open up with renewed hope and life.

Finally, if you are not a talented creator, nor can you give of your time freely, consider helping other organizations such as Christmas Unlimited or Toys for Tots with your money or donated toys and clothing so that the parents who cannot afford to give their children gifts this Christmas will still have a miracle occur and Christmas be saved for their precious children. This can be an ultimate holiday gift idea!

All About Manicures

“Manicure” is a word that is typically familiar among women. However, it is actually quite common for men to indulge in manicures too, especially before an important event such as a wedding or business opportunity. People often get or give themselves manicures for various reasons. Sometimes it’s to simply be pampered, as getting a professional manicure is often a very relaxing experience. Other times it’s to get ready for special events, or to simply look one’s best on a daily basis.

Manicures can be done at the home or in a salon, with most people choosing to head to a salon. This is because salons provide several options for the ultimate manicure. For example, you can choose from hundreds of shades of nail polish or choose a customized manicure. French manicures are often a popular choice among women obtaining a professional manicure. Other popular options include American manicures, diamond nails, gel nails, and having cute, trendy designs painted on your nails. If you don’t know the difference between these types of manicures, this article will help you choose which on is right for you.

An American manicure closely resembles the French manicure. It’s beautiful, subtle, and classy all at the same time. The major difference is that the American manicure is thought by many women to look more natural than the French look. American manicures usually do not contain a color base, but are painted clear or an opaque white prior to painting the tips. The tips are still painted white, but don’t appear as bright as French manicures. Diamond nail manicures are a slightly more expensive form of manicure, but for very good reason. The concept formed from creating a base coat made from real diamonds, which bond to form a hard, protective coating over the actual fingernail. This provides a glamorous look while helping the nails to grow rapidly. Some places may not use a base coat containing actual diamonds, but the concept and look remains the same. Gel nail manicures are done using an acrylic base over the top of the actual nail, providing strength to enhance the growth of the nails. It should be known that eventually this layer begins to break off, but some women prefer to keep up this form of manicure to keep their nails hard and strong.

For those opting to do their manicures at home, it’s possible to achieve the same professional look for a lot less. Look for professional manicure kits. You can choose from a French, American, or classic (a color is applied to your entire nail) manicure kit. If your nails are long enough, you can purchase the kits with adhesive strips to help you perfect the white line that is painted over the tips. If you have short nails but wish to make them look longer, you will need to purchase artificial tips and the supplies needed for these manicures – acrylic powder, bonding solution, professional nail cutting scissors, and a buffer. Sometimes you can purchase the acrylic kits already containing these items. However, be careful when choosing an acrylic kit.

Men Wardrobe

Men have a wide variety of options, when it comes to stocking their wardrobes. There are many styles to consider, and fashions are always evolving. Some pieces seem to remain popular throughout the decades, and designer jeans are just one example of items that fit that description. They are versatile, and they work well for many occasions. When shopping for clothing staples for men, it is good to keep in mind all of the components that add up to a functional wardrobe.

While maintaining a sense of style is important to many consumers, it is not the only element to consider, when browsing men  clothing. The latest fashions will fall short of high expectations, if they are not matched appropriately to the person wearing them. A man who is advanced in years might like the styles worn by men in their twenties, but is probably better suited to pieces intended for his age range. This does not mean he must sacrifice fashion, and in fact, there are many clothing lines designed to complement and showcase the physiques of older men.

Another important factor is how clothing fits a person. Men fashion changes constantly, just as fashions for women do.  If a garment does not fit an individual well, it generally does not convey the look it was supposed to. It is wise to learn about personal measurements and limitations, and to dress accordingly. A competent tailor can be of enormous help, both in discovering individual proportions, and in adjusting clothes to fit them beautifully.

Men suits, in particular, can be very difficult to wear, if they are not given proper adjustments by a knowledgeable tailor. It is rare for a man to find a suit that fits immediately, without the need for any alterations. A good, well-made suit is an investment, and it should last for many seasons. It is usually worth the extra time and effort required, in order to ensure that such an ensemble looks the way it is supposed to.

Suits are typically best worn with men dress shirts that complement them well. Classic styles are often relied upon for their traditional lines, which work well in many situations. Trendier styles, however, can be just as elegant and appropriate, especially if they are intended for use with suits or jackets. A fashionable dress shirt can be the determining factor, when assembling an outfit that is meant to impress peers and associates.

When a man wishes to dress in a stylish manner, without appearing too formal or overdone, designer jeans can be a key asset. There are countless designs that are quite appropriate in a variety of settings. Jeans are now worn in a multitude of circumstances, from first dates to casual business meetings. People of all shapes and sizes can usually find jeans that fit them, and that are suitable for many occasions.

A fashionable ensemble for a man is not fully realized, without a good pair of men dress shoes to complete it. Shoes can make the difference between a look that is mediocre, and one that is stunning and unforgettable. Whether one chooses to wear a three-piece suit, or a simple jacket with pants, a decent pair of shoes can help to produce a desirable effect.

For some men, dressing well and appropriately is easy to do, and for others, it can be a bit more challenging. It is usually a sage idea to consult with a trusted friend or family member, before putting an ensemble together. Most wardrobes are best if they contain several key pieces, like suits for formal occasions, and designer jeans for more casual use. Most men will find that once they have acquired the basic elements needed, the next logical steps are to put them on, and to enjoy them.
