El kimono se popularizó con el ascenso de la clase guerrera en Japón durante el siglo XII. Como parte de una tendencia general hacia una vestimenta menos llamativa bajo el shogunato Tokugawa, comenzó a ser usado por ambos sexos desde alrededor de 1700. El kimono se hizo aún más popular tras la Restauración Meiji de 1868.

Strange Pregnancy Symptoms: The Weirdest Things Can Happen
Pregnancy can be a time of uncertainty and fear. There are so many different things that could happen, and it’s hard not to worry about them all. Did you know that some women experience strange pregnancy symptoms? It’s true! And these symptoms may be related to what is going on with your baby. But don’t worry, we’re here with the signs of what each symptom means, any risks for you or your baby, and how to deal with it. Read on for more information on the weirdest things that can happen during pregnancy! Morning Sickness There are two types of morning sickness. Food aversions and nausea/vomiting/indigestion. Phobias happen because you’re just not feeling that well and are more likely to feel like just staying in bed all day rather than dealing with life. Vomiting is the result of food aversions and not feeling well from not eating at all. It also seems to have some connection to your gut health. You may be experiencing either of these symptoms, but it could be both at the same time. Try some easy remedies like ginger, magnesium, and eating saltines. Signs For A Baby That’s Too Far Down This is the opposite of morning sickness. This is the only time when you don’t get sick. It’s just abdominal pain. Fatigue – Strange Pregnancy Symptoms Women are often referred to as the weaker se* for a reason. They often suffer from fatigue, including insomnia. But pregnancy fatigue is a real thing, especially in the second trimester. Women are actually in their most active and energetic period of pregnancy. But when your body is pregnant, it doesn’t make much effort to balance your hormones out. You need extra rest to feel refreshed and well-rested. And so, you may feel more tired and emotionally drained than ever before. Sleepiness Sure, your baby, can make you sleepy and tired, but that doesn’t mean you should sleep right through your morning appointments. Breast Changes As the time to get pregnant gets closer, you may notice a decrease in breast size. Your breast tissue increases in size, becoming more prominent and heavier. By the time you are expecting, you can expect your breasts to weigh anywhere from two to eight pounds, according to Family Connections. Hair Loss Pregnancy is a time of weight gain and growth as your body begins to prepare itself for the baby to come. According to Baby Center, “Your hair can start to fall out if you’ve been less active lately or if you haven’t slept as well as you should.” Since there is a loss of estrogen, the hair may become thinner and thinner. Heart Palpitations Some women are more prone to heart palpitations during pregnancy. Nausea – Strange Pregnancy Symptoms Nothing is grosser than throwing up. Pregnancy can cause nausea as a result of changes in the body and hormones. It’s best to keep a bowl nearby to catch any mess. Nausea can occur during pregnancy that when your stomach starts to shrink, the nerves in your gut become overwhelmed and send signals to the brain that trigger nausea. Cramping When you have severe cramping, it’s normal to think it’s labor. Don’t panic. At first, cramps might feel like menstrual cramps. But cramping can also signify that something is happening with your baby, or maybe your body is just going through some muscle changes. Leg cramps are another warning sign that something’s wrong with your baby. Vomiting – Strange Pregnancy Symptoms As long as your pregnancy is relatively standard, you’re probably not going to see your OB/GYN too often. Your doctor is more likely to come to check on your blood pressure, glucose levels, and any other concerns that arise. But when you are experiencing intense and sudden, uncontrollable nausea, your OB/GYN will want to see you. It’s usually a sign that your liver isn’t processing some toxin, or your gallbladder could be bothering you. In most cases, nausea during pregnancy is usual. But it can get out of control, and the person experiencing it may develop an intolerance for certain foods. Since nausea during pregnancy can sometimes cause a miscarriage, see your doctor immediately if the nausea is severe and persists for more than a week. Constipation According to Mayo Clinic, some women experience constipation during pregnancy, which could be a sign of your baby’s development or the condition of your pelvis. Constipation could be due to a variety of reasons, and this could be a sign of the baby not getting enough food or nutrients. If your constipation is very painful, or if you are throwing up or hemorrhaging, see your doctor. They may be able to help! Weight Loss Losing weight during pregnancy is common, but it’s essential to take care of your health and overall wellness. Food Aversions – Strange Pregnancy Symptoms We all have them. Some of us get food aversions before we are pregnant or even have them before trying to conceive. Others of us don’t start experiencing them until we’re pregnant. Sometimes these aversions are due to increased levels of certain hormones, and other times these aversions are pregnancy-related. Some of the common pregnancy aversions are fatigue, reflux, nausea, vomiting, and constipation. Even symptoms aren’t associated with pregnancy but are something to watch out for, like anxiety, irritability, and depression. The causes of these unusual feelings vary, so keep in mind that there are no guarantees that any of these feelings are pregnancy-related. Pain During Peeing Usually, during your period, you will bleed.
Working in the Anime Industry: A Struggle
The Japanese Animation Creators Association just recently released the results of a survey taken in 2015 of over 750 different people working in the Anime industry in Japan. Coming from an American standpoint, where our entertainers are paid staggering amounts of money, you might think it would be similar for Anime creators, considering how popular the medium is. You'd be wrong. Here's a collected set of averages from Kotaku that shows the median salary for each different position in the creation of anime. Series Director Average Age: 42 years old Average Monthly Salary: 540,833 yen ($5,036) Average Yearly Salary: 6,490,000 yen ($60,437) Chief Animation Director Average Age: 43 years old Average Monthly Salary: 470,000 yen ($4,378) Average Yearly Salary: 5,640,000 yen ($52,521) Producer Average Age: 39 years old Average Monthly Salary: 451,667 yen ($4,206) Average Yearly Salary: 5,420,000 yen ($50,471) Character Designer Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 425,000 yen ($3,958) Average Yearly Salary: 5,100,000 yen ($47,491) Animation Director Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 327,500 yen ($3,045) Average Yearly Salary: 3,930,000 yen ($36,602) 3DCG Animator Average Age: 34 years old Average Monthly Salary: 320,000 yen ($2,980) Average Yearly Salary: 3,840,000 yen ($35,764) Episode Director Average Age: 41 years old Average Monthly Salary: 316,667 yen ($2,949) Average Yearly Salary: 3,800,000 yen ($35,391) Storyboarder Average Age: 49 years old Average Monthly Salary: 310,000 yen ($2,887) Average Yearly Salary: 3,720,000 yen ($34,647) Art Director (Background Art) Average Age: 35 years old Average Monthly Salary: 285,000 yen ($2,655) Average Yearly Salary: 3,420,000 yen ($31,864) Color Designer Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 278,333 yen ($2,593) Average Yearly Salary: 3,340,000 yen ($31,120) Cinematographer Average Age: 34 years old Average Monthly Salary: 265,833 yen ($2,476) Average Yearly Salary: 3,190,000 yen ($29,723) Production Assistant Average Age: 30 years old Average Monthly Salary: 257,000 yen ($2,394) Average Yearly Salary: 3,090,000 yen ($28,788) Key Animator Average Age: 36 years old Average Monthly Salary: 235,000 yen ($2,189) Average Yearly Salary: 2,820,000 yen ($26,271) Inbetween Checker Average Age: 35 years old Average Monthly Salary: 217,500 yen ($2,026) Average Yearly Salary: 2,610,000 yen ($24,314) Layout Artist/Rough Keyart Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 195,000 yen ($1,817) Average Yearly Salary: 2,340,000 yen ($21,800) Paint Staff Average Age: 26 years old Average Monthly Salary: 162,000 yen ($1,509) Average Yearly Salary: 1,950,000 yen ($18,167) 2nd Key Animation/Clean-Up Average Age: 27 years old Average Monthly Salary: 93,333 yen ($870) Average Yearly Salary: 1,120,000 yen ($10,434) Inbetween Staff Average Age: 24 years old Average Monthly Salary: 92,500 yen ($862) Average Yearly Salary: 1,110,000 yen ($10,340) The people at the top of the pyramid make the most; that's something we can understand universally. However, even at the highest salary, the numbers still pale in comparison to what series directors would be receiving here in the States. It only gets more depressing as you go down the list, where some of these positions mean that these employees are making less than minimum wage. Considering the amount of work and pressure these people are under, it's a little disheartening to see how little they earn for their efforts. So, maybe rethink your foray into the industry for now...
My Food at the Sailor Moon Cafe! (Talk About It Tuesday)
Soooo, for this week's talk about it Tuesday (started by @invinsybll) , the theme was Anime Accessorizing, but I already showed off my accessories last week! So, instead, I wanted to show off something fun I got to do back in September when I took a short trip to Japan. Now, I don't like to brag, but I was lucky enough to go to the Sailor Moon Cafe that was going on at that time!! I haven't really talked about it before, so here goes~ Now, I didn't take many pictures , but this is the food that I ate! Isn't it cute? It was a Sailor Jupiter themed bento box. I loved it! Everything in it was tasty. The rice balls were mushroom veggie rice balls, the spaghetti was sweet, and the little pieces of cutlet were seafood cutlet! Yummmmmmyyyy!! I also got a Tuxedo Mask Coffee! Isn't it cute?! It really didn't taste THAT great (ever had a cold, canned coffee? It sort of tasted like that, lol). But it was adorable and that's all that matters. I also got the Sailor Mars coaster you see in the background, and a little Sailor Mars dessert, too!! I didn't take pictures of the interior, but it was basically just a bar set up with a lot of memorabilia. They played episodes of the show on the TV screens throughout the room, and music from the series the whole time! You could text in a request & they would play that, too. They also had goods for purchase, but it was a bit pricey just to be there so I didn't buy anything. And that was my experience at the Sailor Moon Cafe!
Make A Fist. Then Read This Card.
So I just learned about something cool today called Kobushi Shindan. Have any of you heard about it? Kobushi Shindan (literally, 'fist analysis' in Japanese) is an ancient samurai personality test. All you need to do to take it is make a fist! So make a fist, any fist, and find out what your personal fist form says about you! Fist #1: Your thumb rests on your index finger. People with this fist shape tend to be natural leaders. You like helping others and, likewise, appreciate being leaned on for support. However, despite a strong exterior, you have the tendency to be a bit insecure. In relationships, you are extremely devoted and expect that same kind of loyalty in return. You put others before yourself, and since you're not necessarily good at words, you put that love into compassionate action. Fist #2: Your thumb rests in the middle of your fist. You're a free-spirit with a wide range of talents and plenty of friends. However, you tend to be afraid to try new things because you fear failure. And despite the fact you have a wide group of friends, the amount of friends you consider close is considerably smaller. In love, that fear of failure makes it hard for you to begin romantic relationships, but because of your kind and sociable nature, you're a pretty attractable potential mate! Fist #3: You tuck your thumb underneath fingers. You're much more introverted than the other two personality types. You're a sensitive and private person, and while you don't have a huge social network, the few friends you do have are extremely close and loyal to you. You hate conflict and tend to internalize your feelings, but your compromising nature makes you very attentive in your romantic relationships, which tends to make them pretty long-term. So which fist did you guys get? Do you think Kobushi Shindan has got you all figured out, or are there some things you disagree with?
