Tsubasaism: The Autobiography

Hey cutie, how are you? Today I want to share with you my bby Darla’s post, where she translated “Tsubasaism: the Autobiography”!!!! It was so inspiring to be able to read from Tsubasa Masuwaka’s point of view, and I felt like I connected with her a lot more because she just sounds so, well…. Human. I think I inadvertently put her on a pedestal so it hit me that she is only a person at the end of the day and does experience hardships as well…

Here’s a lil’ snippet of Darla’s translation:

The Awakening to Fashion…

500 yen a day working part-time at my family’s pub. I used the money I saved to buy clothes…

Ever since I can remember, I have loved fashion. I grew my hair long when I was in kindergarten, and when I got home, I was always wearing a skirt. Actually…I was often mistaken for a boy because of my name “Tsubasa”! So, I wanted to be more girly. However, it wasn’t until I was in the upper grades of elementary school that I discovered the joy of choosing clothes for myself. By that time, I was already without my parents and went shopping with my friends. Of course, I couldn’t buy clothes with the pocket money I that I would usually get, so I started working part-time when I was in elementary school.

However, since I worked at an izakaya only at my house, I used to wash dishes and carry food there. The part-time job fee is 500 yen per day. Even though 500 yen doesn’t seem like much, if you save up for 4 days, it will be 2,000 yen, and you can buy a cute T-shirt. I continued working part-time at an izakaya even after I entered junior high school, and even my school friends did it together, so it was fun.
