Anonymous asked: Who won?

Hi! I haven’t picked a winner yet — my dad came to visit me as a surprise for my birthday and we’ve been traveling around so I haven’t had the time to do it. As soon as I get home I will let you guys know! I’m really sorry about it.

You went back to Tokyo just about the time the fall weather was deepening, so for a time I couldn’t tell whether the hole that opened up inside me was from missing you or from the change of season. […] I often reread your letters at night when I’m lonely and in pain. I get confused by a lot of…

I’m dying to re read Emma! It’s been like 4 years since I last read it and I’ve never read it in English so I think I must do it now. I left my physical copy back home, so I think I’ll read it on the internet, or maybe I’ll buy another. We can start whenever you want. I’m really exciting about this.

gigil [gee-guhl]
-(noun) Gigil is an untranslatable Tagalog word, from the language of the Philippines, which has made it into our list of most beautiful feelings for its adorability factor. To experience gigil means to be overcome by a sudden urge to pinch or squeeze something/someone that is irresistably cute! We are surprise that there is not a word for this in every language, especially since most of us are fascinated by puppies, kitten, babies, and even our romantic partners. Next time you are overcome by gigil when you see your boyfriend/girlfriend or puppy, remember with bliss and satisfaction that this emotion has not been wasted in the spectrum of sentiments.
