Asian Studies BA Degree? Sayounara!

Hey Maniacs!!!
I am super excited to tell you guys that above all odds, I made
it! I finished 3 years of university!
I went earlier to hand out my last 2 big ass papers, and that is
it! 3 years of a lot of mixed emotions have come to an end.

It was a little nostalgic walking around university and thinking
about how I was when I first started my studies. Gosh, I was so god
damn different. I was trying so hard to conform, to let go of the
“crazy” image I had about myself, and I was very excited to start
a new thing. I even remember trying to hide most of my tattoos and
get rid of a few piercings. Heck, I was “studying” normal people
on the post office, on the streets, and tried to imitate them, what
they wore, how they acted, their tiny necklaces and ballet flats…

From the beginning I wasn’t going there to get a degree, I was
all about learning Japanese, and maybe at the end of uni get a
scholarship to japan, but that was the end of my hopes, as I was just
healing from a long battle with eating disorders and severe
depression. I couldn’t imagine I would become what I am today!
Never would I imagine I’d have a blog, a youtube channel,
friends who love me and I love them, and such a different attitude
towards life.

At the beginning of my second year, I got so distracted
by the need to create, I was really absorbed in my videos and I
didn’t want to go on with my studies, but I was too scared to quit
cause I feared I might fall back into severe depression and kill
myself.
I had the same dilemma as I started the third year… I even made an “I quit University” video back then.
 Looking back, I don’t know if I should have quit or not, but
considering the last to years of school were absolute hell, I am very
proud of myself for sticking to the end.

           

To tell you the truth I wasn’t sure I was going to make it until
a few days ago, where I had the majority of my paper written. I
didn’t know whether I’d have the ability to force myself doing
something I hate for so long, and it did take its toll on me.

Since last October, I became more depressed than I was in the last
few years, and stopped uploading videos frequently. Heck, I probably
uploaded 4 videos this last year. I just didn’t have it in me. Part
of it was due to when I was in Berlin last year. I was so busy with
living life rather than filming them, that a part of vlogging seemed
pathetic to me. I also started thinking, why would people wanna see
my videos? I am cute, funny and enjoyable, but I don’t really give
an added value to give nor do I have a niche that people can relate to.
Besides, I was always a bit embarrassed to vlog in public, and
talking to a camera in your own room does seem a bit weird when you’re
not doing it frequently. There is also the language barrier. Obviously
English is not my native language, and even though I can write OK, I
pronounce myself much better in Hebrew than in English, and its pretty
difficult for me to vlog in English fluently.

I do have some of these thought in my head now, when I actually do
plan on going back to vlogging and blogging regularly, I am pretty
spooked out and I’m not really sure what should I do. Especially now
that I have so many new interests I’d be happy to talk about and that
I am leaving Israel to go travel Thailand.

BTW, brace yourselves, cause I have a ONE WAY TICKET to Thailand
on the 24th of November!!!

I am even more spooked out about this whole thing. I am actually
leaving everything I know to go and explorer a new place and a
totally new lifestyle. Remember that on my Midburn post I told you
guys I want to create a life for myself that I wouldn’t be
depressed to come back to after a festival? So this is me following
that plan.

I sold a heck of a lot of the shit I owned, but I’m gonna use these
next 2 months to sell all the rest and get ready and say goodbye to
the people I love, and get back to a bit of vlogging and I would like
to write a raw till 4 recipe ebook, or at least take the pictures as
I still have a good camera and computer before getting rid of them.

I can’t wait to start backpacking with only a few essentials and
start exploring the real things in life, not what a bunch of bozos
write in their academic books and not working for a bunch of bozos
who get all the profit from the work that I do, and live in the race
of purchasing shit I don’t need.

Well, a pretty exciting period is in front of me, I’ll try to
keep you guys posted 🙂

Peace
Henya

Henya Mania in “At” Magazine!!!

Heyyy
Maniacs!!!
So
here are the exciting news I’d been waiting to tell you!
I
was interviewed by a big woman’s magazine named “At”, about me,
my channel and veganism.
They
also took some professional pics of me! With lighting and photoshop
and everything!
Well
anyway, the article came out in the last issue in the 28.2 and I AM
THRILLED!
It
came out soooo good!
It’s
in Hebrew so probably most of you can’t read it, sorry! 🙂
The
only problem I have with it is that the writer wrote that Michael
does all of the filming and editing which he only did twice…But who
cares?! It’s a great article and I’m glad the things I said hadn’t
been taken out of context. So I wanna send a huge thanks to the
writer Liat Levi [Levy?]!
Here
is the pics from the photoshoot and the pic I took from the
paper…I’m hoping I won’t have any copyrights issues with it 😛
I
owe a HUGE Thanks to the amazing photographer Inbal Marmari! You can
watch her other works on her website – www.inbalmarmari.com

That’s
it for now, in the following days I’m gonna upload the video from the
anime convention I’d been to on purim, so make sure you follow me on
Twitter, facebook, G+, here on my blog to get more updates, and don’t
forget to subscribe to my channel!

The Twilight Saga Parody is FINALLY HERE!

OMG Maniacs!!!

I’m the most excited that I EVER was!
It’s finally here!!

THE TWILIGHT SAGA PARODY BY HENYA MANIA! 
Watch it here NOW!!!

I’m so proud of my first major production 🙂
I’m a HUGE vampire fan since I was a little girl, and I just LOVE the Twilight books!
[they’re so much better than the movies, even though I have to admit that New Moon was excellent :)] So making a Twilight parody was only a matter of time.

It was so much fun directing it and acting Bella Swag, even though I don’t really enjoy producing and all those other technical stuff… But the editing was pretty dope too, I have to say.
Everyone on set was just so awesome!
Off course Michael Levy, my boyfriend did all the filming and visual effects.. he’s a genius!
Eyal Degabli did the motion graphics and helped with the PR…

And all of my actors!
I wanna use this platform to thank you guys for your AMAZING cooperation, you all did so great and well beyond my expectations, so thank you thank you THANK YOU! 
[Totally turned out to be an Oscar winning speech]
I love you all! 


I can’t wait till I finish the Behind The Scenes…oh, and If you like the music in the video, you can check out the soundtrack here!

AAAAnd I have another surprise for you guys!

I have another video coming up…
I somehow got all [well, most of] my Twilight Saga Parody cast to dance Vegan Style!
Here’s a Snick pick 🙂

And on a slightly different note, last post I promised some sexy pics from my makeup trial photoshoots…

So That’s it for this time 🙂
