IT’S BEEN TWO YEARS! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? MARVELOUSLY MISMATCHED HAS BEEN GOING FOR TWO YEARS NOW! I can’t believe that it’s been such a long time since I first started blogging. I still feel like a newbie sometimes when I do this lol. Although I don’t think I can be considered a newbie now. I have had a lot of fun blogging and getting to know all these amazing bloggers. I have made some awesome memories and I hope to make a lot more! Thank you all so much for all the love and support you have shown to Marvelously Mismatched these two years!
Hi everyone. Recently my friends, family and I decided to enter Relay for Life. Now you might be asking yourself what is Relay for Life? Well, Relay for Life is a charity that helps raise money for cancer. This is a little bit of a touchy subject for me because a person who was really important to me once had cancer. Cancer changes everything. I watched the happy woman we all knew and love change overnight. It was really hard for her. I’m not putting this up as a way to force you guys to donate but if you’d like too I know it would really mean a lot to people. If you would like to donate click the link below, search for team Stranger Things and donate to team Stranger Things. Team Stranger Things.
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE! Have a great day and enjoy spending time with family and friends. I hope you guys find lots of eggs and have a good time.
High Score Girl
The year is 1991 and 6th grader Yaguchi Haruo only has video games to live for. He’s not popular in school and he’s neither handsome, funny, nice nor even friendly. The only thing he has going for him is that he is good at video games. One day at the local arcade, he plays Oono Akira, a fellow classmate but who’s popular, smart, pretty and a rich girl that absolutely destroys him at Street Fighter II. Not only does he lose to her 30 times in a row, he can’t beat her at any game. Haruo can’t seem to shake Akira off as she follows him from arcade to arcade everyday after school and beats him every time. As weird as it sounds, the odd couple begins a strange bond and friendship. Summary from My Anime List. Continue reading
