Year of 2008

I wish I had my old blog entries so I can review this year with more detailed… or even read my end of the year entry last year. But too bad it isn’t possible anymore. For sure this blog entry will still be, eh, pretty long. So sorry! There is no need for you to read it all. But personally I really want to keep these memories.

2008 huh…. so much has happen this year. It went by pretty fast. Isn’t it amazing how time can just past by fast like that? This year started out with me sitting in front of the TV watching the Seattle fireworks. This year’s fireworks had a malfunction, it didn’t sync with the music.

Returned to school on Jan 3rd which is my friend, Soliya’s, birthday. Hmmm… I remembered his birthday because I couldn’t get him anything this year. We we’re pretty close. Well, we still are. Are we? On this year we went on an orchestra field trip. I had a great time. However… after this field trip my friends started to drift away. A gap between the normal class student and the IB student started to form. Finally I became the outcast.

January 25th, 2008 my sweet 16th birthday. Today was the day that I’m obviously forgotten by my supposedly best friend back then, Sachiko. Around the end of the day Sachiko finally ask “Oh, it’s your birthday today right?” Thanks a bunch Princess, I don’t mind not getting a party, gifts or anything. One thing that makes me the most happy on my birthday is hearing the words “Happy Birthday!”.

Around February 10th, 2008 the gate of a new obsession has opened. Welcome SMAP to Hondai’s world. Hahaha After becoming a huge huge huge SMAP fan I started opening myself to become friends with Mei-chan. Around this time Mei-chan me and Johnny boy became the ultimate Trio. For the first time in 5 years, I felt like I had real friends.

Because that gate was open, Ampy and I started watching Dramas. For a Japanese project I did a presentation on Japanese Pop music. I started collecting more and more Japanese music. My Music library grew from around 400 songs it jumped now to 1700+ songs. I discovered J-pop Asia and that became the update of recent Japanese music for me. Around early May I got curious about the group name NEWS. PhotobucketLooking them up on J-pop Asia I found their latest single that is to be release soon at that timeSummer Time!. Funny thing is the pv was shining like “Buy me! Buy me!”falling into the PV trap, I clicked pre-order this CD. Haahh~ Such a fool.

I fell in love with the group NEWS because they are rather entertaining. Funny thing I realized later that that one guy with the smile that always catch my eye in NEWS is the same guy with the guy that catch my eye in Tegomass. Oh oops! Their the same person! Tegoshi Yuya has entered Hondai’s world.

From Feb. to the end of the school year, July. Johnny, me, and Mei-chan along with Ampy were forest friends. We laugh and go crazy during lunch time. We got obsess with the Chopstick love compatibility game and even play the chopsticks “What number are we…” game. Haha our favorite topic NEWS. Screaming when I got #2 when it was Tegoshi. Laughing at Johnny when I got #1 for Ryo. Those days were so much fun I can remember it like yesterday.

March, April, May, June, July went by super fast. Because I became Photobucketfriends with Mei-chan and Johnny, all the darkness that happened in 2007 washed away. Everyday became fun again. I became optimistic again. With Mei-chan we start talking about futures, dreams, and thing like that.

Summer 2008 was the best so far. Went to work the usual Sundays. Go to random places with Ampy. Stopping by Mei-chan’s >house. Exchanging our Sakko diaries. The weather was great to. It felt like summer. Not to mention I had “This is the summer time” going around my head all the time. By the time it’s summer, Hondai has become a Tegoshi Fangirl. (Grr Tego is evil!)

College life started in September. Rainy season has started once again. College classes are fun, but I really miss my friends at highschool. With all my SMAP and NEWS power I made all the friends I could last year. They were forest friends too. But this school year I can’t see them anymore. September-November became lonely again.

This month, December we were hit by a snow storm. Crazy seasons this year. Winter break hasn’t been going well, I got to experience the stress of a working adult. Thinking of house rent, working payments and all those stuff. I start to think more deeply about things. I became more passionate about finding a job I would enjoy. Creating a good future.

Though these past months were a little dull in my memory, I feel like I can make 2008 a brighter place again. With all my will power, I’ll stick to my old friends and make new friends. I can’t wait until Spring and Summer once again.

2008 was a year that made me remember how to smile for my self again.
