Saturdays~

Today was really just another day. The night before I slept very early so today I woke up so early. I probably woke up around 9:30 or so, yeah… pretty early for me haha. I was quite sad today because it was sunny but I had to go work. Originally, I wasn’t supposed to go work today because there’s a matsuri going on at school today. But because I told my dad it was on Sunday and no Saturday (I screwed up) I ended up having to work on Saturday and got Sunday off instead.. Silly me.

Today at work over all was quite fine. Max and Aaron surprised me! I really though my day was just going to end typically, hahaha~

When I got home I finally got to play LoL with my friend James. lol~ He said that he was bad, but he wasn’t THAT bad. Well, plus the fact that we were playing with Zach and his friends + James. So embarrassing Dx How am I to face him now during Japanese class.

Talking about Japanese class, I can’t wait to get my test scores back.. and talking about my test scores, my LING midterm #2 I got above average!! 😀 YES! For once I got above average. You have no idea how happy I am lol.

well~ super sleepy cuz its super late~..

おやすみ~


old Journal & 今

I wish I still write written journals. Technically I do every once and awhile on my red mini journal, but that one is, holy shit, the most honest thing I’ve written ever.

Well, looking at my old journal entries, I find many things interesting and I have many questions about it too..

  1. why was I such a bitter person? I lack self confidence big time it seems.
  2. WOW my English. I wasn’t even writing complete sentences and my tenses were horrible! Its quite interesting to see how much my English has improved in the past 8 years. Trust me… it has A LOT
  3. I wasn’t even daring enough to write about my crush in my journal. How lame of me. I constantly write about how I waved hi at him in the hallways. Haa,
  4. I found truth, dare, kisses or promises the dumbest game ever. Funny thing is, that game is what got my current relationship fueled and started.
  5. I was still in love with my 初恋. I started remembering how heart broken I was when my first love broke up with me. ): I think I sulked for years.

I realized how much I’ve grown since then. I’m such a strong person now, in love, confident, happy… I know what I like and what I want to do. I’m not too shy to talk to classmates, better yet, I’ve become the person who encourages shy classmates to talk to me. There are just so many things that I’ve change.. and they’re good changes.

Today in Japanese class 先生 asked, 誰か今、勉強以外に一生懸命していることがあるのか?I raised my hand and said 今、一生懸命いい人になりたい! Many thought it was a joke but I’m being serious. Its been, pretty much, my new years resolution years after year. I think each year, little by little, I accomplish something. I like that.

Talking about journals, I’ve been neglecting writing them.. Online or on paper. I think its because writing on my Hoshiru blog felt like a hassle, also, I didn’t have much time for myself. This quarter though I’ve learn to find time for myself. I want to go back to documenting my life. So many good things have been happening lately and I don’t want them to be forgotten. There are little things I want to remember, even if they are daily things. I’ve come to realize that, the daily things are the things we tend to fail to document the most. If I were to put my day today in simple terms..

I went to school, first class was at 8:30 in the morning.. LING 233 with Betsy Evans. Today she started lecturing lecture 5 I believe.. she mentioned many regional vowl shifts. 特にNorthern cities shift and southern shift. She screwed up her powerpoint slides but oh well.

After LING class I usually have an hour break before Japanese class. During that half an hour I ended up running around campus just to print my Japanese 作文の下書き.. I was also stressing out so much because I didn’t get to study for my Kanji Quiz as much as I could. Also the fact that in Odegaard 2nd floor you got these people talking LoL VERY loud. I would love to join in the conversation if they didn’t sound so retarded… oh and if I wasn’t TRYING TO STUDY.

Japanese class was quite fine.. Though I usually sit next to Brandon, I partner up with Joe-san today. I guess I’m quite happy about that because if I partner up with Brandon all the time I feel like we don’t get to meet new people… or me atleast ;D cuz Brandon always partners up with either me or his friend Okada-san. lol

-Lunch は長い話だ-

After lunch I went to see Max at the CSP. I’m glad that out of all days, today everyone was there. The reason why I’m glad is because I went to see Max quite late today so, at least I feel like he had something fun/worth doing at the CSP. Then Max and I hung out like how we typically do. We went to the Park and scared some ducks off for fun, we took a walk along the river side… y’know.. park stuff. After the park we went to eat at our typical Maxican restaurant! I’ve been meaning to try spinach stuffed enchiladas all this time, finally today I’ve got the ‘balls’ to try it and I didn’t regret it! Next time I’ll get a better sauce though.

After dinner with Max we went to Max’s house„ seems like the people who were installing Max’s house’s sprinklers weren’t done yet. Max’s mom seems quite stressed out about it too. She said to me “I wish I never done this”. I felt kinda bad for her but.. I’m sure she’ll be happy about it later on. But then anyways.. At Max’s house what I mostly did is cuddle with Max in his bed. >_< probably one of the best & relaxing things in life right now.. cuddling with Max. Ahh~ Its always so relaxing I fall asleep. ALWAYS.

Anyways.. enough of that. I am getting quite sleepy/tired. Thank god tomorrow is Tuesday, which means that I can get to school slightly later that I usually have to 😀

[edit Hoshiru edition]: There are so many blog entries I didn’t post on here )x Like my Sakura-con entry and Winter Quarter entries. Arg. 

well bed time for me, good night.


Sakura Con 2012

終わった~

I feel so lonely somehow when sakuracon ended this year. This is my third time going to Sakura con and it was probably the best year ever!! There were obvious reasons and little reasons that made it the best year so far. I’ll start off with the mre obvious reason.

Of Course first of all Stereopony is the performing guest this year!! Though I wasn’t a die hard fan before I always love love loooove many of their songs!! So being able to see them live was just pure awesome!! At the con we first had to line up 30 minutes before the show. there was Max Max who didn’t know much about Stereopony decide to check out their live concert, then my fellow Japanese class friend Brandon who loves a lot of the same music I do, and uw bothell friend I met at the con Ben who seems to be pretty hyped about the concert. I was pretty confident that Max would like their music, but I wasn’t sure how much he’ll enjoy the screechy loud concert noise so I was pretty nervous about that. Though it seems like the energetic performance by Stereopony was able to by past the annoying sound and Max seemed to enjoy the live a lot so that made me very very happy (^O^☆♪

Well enough about Max and more onto the actual concert now, shall we?! They first started off with the intro theme of their new album More! More!! More!!! Then when Aimi, Nohana and Shiho came out my tension jumped to 20x xD!!! ” live voice was so amazing!!” was my first thought when they started performing. Wahh my favourite performance was 2 songs that I’m not sure what the name is. I think one was Everybody Jump! The band for us to dance along with them it was too much fun. Then the most of most excited part is when the concert ended… I started yelling 「アンコル!! アンコル!!!」haha it was always my dream to do that at a live. I wasn’t really expecting them to actually come out… But they did!!!! I was like キャアア!!!☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆ and I got even more キャアキャア when Aimi was like 「この歌知ってますか??! 」 then they started singing ヒトヒラのハナビラ! my most most favourite song by them and the one I wanted to see live the most!!! Wahhhh I was soooo so happy you guys have no ideaaa.

Phewww!! Of course the party didn’t end there!! Max and I also decide to get their autographs afterwards. I ran alllll the way to almost the first in line x) Max got me their Album so that I can let them sign it!! ^^ When my turn came, Aimi actually said じゃあね! to me.. So cute!!! I also told Shiho how cool I thought her drumming was. She smiled at me >w< after I got my autograph some lady grabbed me and asked if they could interview me. Then I was like “oh ummm can I record my friend real quick?” then she’s like “ohh… I’m sorry but you’re not suppose to be doing that” so then I kept asking her “oh should I stop?” to stall hahaha. In the end they interviewed me. I felt like I should have said more during the shout out >_< I wish I said 「ステレオポニー 大好き!! またシアトルに遊びにきてね!!」 but it was too rushed that I said only the first part >_< oh well. If I actually appear in their next DVD I’d be so happy!! Maybe someone in Japan will try recruit me an idol or something LOL Jk.
