Hey friends! I'm still here! Yay!

It's been pretty rocky for the past few months. But I had a good, quiet Christmas. It wasn't quite the same but I don't think it'll ever be that way again. It'll take some time for things to get better, so one step at a time, right?

Anyways, I've been pretty immersed in my own world for a while. I've been reading crafting blogs, food blogs, wedding blogs, and shopping etsy like a fiend. A FIEND!!! So many things that I want to do for my own wedding but a)there's no time, b)there's not enough money for me to want to put Swarvosky crystals on all the wedding invitations, c)I don't have time, d)making my own wedding cake is out of my time budget and definitely insane, e)I wish I could afford the gigantic wedding that I really want to have on a cruise liner (which was nixed by the fiance on the account that his mom hates sailing D: ) or at a castle (also nixed because the castle I want would probably be in France and fiance's mom does not want to fly there. DDD: ).

So I was fairly crafty today and finally did the wine charms I've been wanting to make for a while. Super easy and really fun to do. But it brought me back to my college days when I was beading jewelry to relieve stress. I figured if I did a bunch of things to give as gifts, I would have them on hand for any occasion including Christmas. It felt so good to just create something.

But it's time to do some cleaning for the new year, which will be my focus for the next couple of days. So if anyone wants to buy some of my BPAL, the list is here! Free shipping for all my friends!

I'll try to post more often! In fact, it's one of my resolutions. What are some of your resolutions for the New Year?

So I forgot to write and say that I'm taking a long holiday (well, only 2 weeks worth) in Europe.

Things are fairly stable at home so the BF and I went ahead with our Eurotrip.
jemz: (TeniPuri - good as the wall)
at the hospital just waiting.

I hate waiting.

All that doubt and uncertainty and the hope that aches and hurts inside your soul.

A time of limbo where you wait for ages without the peace of mind that comes with ignorance or settled knowledge.

My stomach is just churning. It's not my fate that I'm waiting to be changed but a loved one's. Hope is a beating a hard drum inside my chest.

Did I mention that I hate waiting?

Still alive and busy!

I am currently sadfacing at shigedex, who decided to give me the white screen of death and, thereby, forcing me to RELOAD THE OS and causing me to lose almost everything on the phone.

I'm currently giving the bf's computer looks because it is still trying to update shigedex. I'm more successful at getting it to boot up and stuff.

And now, if I had your digits/address/etc, please email me your contact info again? Or point me to where you have it on your LJ? I haz nothing.

Also! Ringtones! I want some! Preferably jpop or kpop. Then I can personalize your digits to a song. :D

More of a concrete post to come! I have lots of news and pictures to spam you all with!
jemz: (Toma approves!)
Hi Everyone!!!

I'm pleased to announce the second band that will be joining FanimeCon's MusicFest, FLOW.

So excited about their concert on Friday, May 28th. It'll be a BLAST. :D

If you don't know who FLOW is, they are the ones that did two opening theme songs for Naruto, one opening theme song for Code Geass, Persona -trinity soul-, Eureka Seven, & Naruto Shippuden, and the ending theme song for Heroman (which came out last Wednesday!).

*pops up*

Hi. I'm still around. I'm totally swamped with wrapping things up for the anime convention that is at the end of the month. Dad is getting better and better by the day. The bf and I are doing well and we are planning some big things in the future (namely going to Europe for two weeks!).

How are you guys doing?
jemz: (Jin - sexy glasses)
Hey all,

Just wanted to know who's going to Jin's concert in June?

:D My other half and I may or may not be planning some devious things while we are down there.

I already know a few who are going since they are staying in the rooms I booked and the hotel we're in. But any others?
jemz: (PokeIcon!)
I know I'm usually super busy but this is seriously insane.

~ Work has amped up it's crazy.
~ I've been working out a lot to try and look good for a wedding.
~ Daylights Saving is screwing me out of an hour of work/sleep/panic time.
~ going crazy with the insane amt of work I have to do before the end of the week for FanimeCon.
~ Prepping for Anime Los Angeles.
~ One more. One more month and I hope this crazy rollercoaster stops. I hope it goes away forever and we don't have to go through this again. My fingers are crossed and I'm stressing/praying/hoping so hard.
~ the bf and I are doing good.
~ I'm sad I have no time to do online things.
~ Finally heard the new w-inds. album, Another World. I ♥ it with a passion!!!! SO MUCH.
~ I'm craving a creme brulee.
jemz: (Jin - pimp hat)
WhoooooHooooo!!! I've been watching the Olympics like a madwoman, been on pub crawls (watching the USA vs. CANADA game!), dealt with some drama (so not fun!), partying it up at the 2nd Food Harvest Bank (was sorting food to feed the hungry!), doing tons of work for FanimeCon, and taking care of a sick BF who somehow caught bronchitis.

On top of all that, it's no wonder I slipped and fell down the stairs at my house. Oops.

But I've got a fun project for everyone!!! Please help my friend, [ profile] liangzhu, with her "world peace" project. If you need a crane to take pictures of, she can mail you one! Her deadline is March 15, so if it sounds like fun, help her out!

This week has been flying by so fast! Gotta catch up!!! How are you doing? :D
jemz: (swan love)
Chuc Mung Nam Moi! Gong Hay Fat Choi! Happy Lunar New Year!!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

May today be the start of a prosperous year for you and your family. May happiness be abundant this year and that love is always present.

Love you all, flist!
jemz: (w-inds. -  joy)
♥ It's almost Valentine's Day and I just wanted to let you, my wonderful flist, know that I ♥ you!

♥ BF is sick again. This time with a head cold. I'm trying really hard not to catch it while nursing him back to health. What is it with guys being the biggest baby when sick?!

♥ Snow. I ain't got none. Sorry, east coasters. You stole all the snow from Vancouver.

♥ Speaking of Vancouver, I AM SO EXCITED FOR THE WINTER OLYMPICS. MY FAVORITE TIME. Figure Skating, HALF PIPE, Speed Skating. YES.

♥ Homemade baked tortilla chips with guacamole. OM NOM NOM NOM.

♥ Lunar New Year is the same day as Valentine's Day. So this weekend, I spent all day Saturday with BF and his mommy. In Chinatown. Doing what BF & I jokingly call "Chinese Wife Training" aka follow his mom all around Chinatown and learn how to shop like an old Chinese lady.

♥ I'm hopeless addicted to Gardening Mama on the DS. Send help. Or some giant strawberries.

♥ Stay tuned for an announcement on Valentine's Day for FanimeCon's MusicFest! I'm super excited. :D
jemz: (HP - h/d sleeping)
Totally miserable right now.

I caught the boy's stomach flu. Am so sore everywhere.

but at least I'm not working another 12 hour day today.
jemz: (DBSK - so tired!)
Exhaustion.....I haz it.

I've been sleep deprived since Sunday when I had meetings all day and then UTADA HIKARU concert being SUPER AWESOME and AMAZING. Seriously, Hikki-chan brought the energy and the songs. So many of my favorites! I only sadfaced at one but her singing First Love, Automatic, Sakura Drops, and Apples and Cinnamon more than made up for it!

Work has been craaaaaaaaazy. Had been working 10 hour days lately and, today, I pulled a 12 hour day. Going to do it again tomorrow. Work is claiming my >:| face right now.

Then my boyfriend got sick and I've been trying to take care of him.

I don't think I can think of anything else other than one convention is done and planning for the other one has now kicked into high gear.

Anyways, going to bed now. Feel super old but getting up at 4am is not fun with only 4 hours of sleep.
jemz: (Holiday - cupcake!)
Thank you to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday! It meant so much to me since I was having a horrid week (complete with trips home with me bawling my eyes out). Things have definitely looked up today despite how slammed I was at work.

Thank you. For just being there for me even though I've been slammed with RL life things. Thank you for supporting me through one of the most trying periods of my life. Without you guys, I would be so lost and would not be able to find my strength and comfort in you. Without each of you, I would be struggling to find the silver lining each day and maintain hope.

Life for me is a bit tough right now but you, my family, and my beloved boyfriend give me so much hope and optimism for a wonderful 2010.

Tonight, I had dinner with wonderful friends whom I love dearly. Saturday, I'll party with many friends whom I love to have a great time with. Clearly, this weekend will rock.

Also, tonight, BF gave me this gorgeous Burberry purse. Totally wasn't expecting and am totally in love with it. Now I don't have to buy a purse for any weddings this year!! :D But I do need a matching wallet!!!
jemz: (Holiday - warm mug)
It's the last day of the decade as well as the year and I'm so glad to have all of you as my friends.

I have to run off to work in a few minutes but THANK YOU to everyone who's stuck with me this year. It's been one hell of a year. So many many good things and some bad.

I definitely hope that 2010 brings everyone good things and is infinitely better than 2009.

I do have a few resolutions like losing weight, seeing more of the world, and just enjoy life but those seem like life-long goals rather one year resolutions. So my resolution for 2010 is to be on top of things for [ profile] jesummary as well as my conventions (Anime Los Angeles and FanimeCon), not do as much (yeah, stop laughing guys, I'm trying!!!), and maybe not clean as much. But that's a hopeless one. Esp. since I'm currently taking care of sick parents, cleaning is an inevitable chore. My nails are ruuuuuined!!!!

Also, hiking! I've been getting into it as my bf drags me into this activity. Goodness knows why I'm doing this but it gives me a new outlook of the world that doesn't involve computers, pretty idol boys, organization planning, OR the interwebs. Did I mention it doesn't have computers?

This weekend I'm going snowshoeing in Yosemite National Park. WISH ME LUCK because omg, gonna expire on the mountain amidst snow. D: But I'm hoping it will be a good experience.

I hope things are going well for all of you and I WILL catch up on your LJ's sooon. SOOOON.

Happy New Year, Everyone!!!

P.S. I sent out some cards. I'll be sending the rest out soon. An unexpected trip to the ER/Hospital derailed my card-writing plans. Everyone's okay but time has escaped me and I'm behind on cards. But SOOON!!! :D
jemz: (DBSK - so tired!)
My legs hurt.

I did a 7 mile hike through a redwoods reserve. Walked along a cute creek in lots of mud, trees, water, banana slugs, and other things.

Now I'm exhausted but all of today's fics for jehols is up. :D

Right now, I just want a massage and sleep. Tomorrow is time enough for all the aching and the craving for more energy.
jemz: (Holiday - red xmas treeeeee)
I've been disgustingly domestic and completely away from the computer.

So far, I've been learning to cook and have successfully made some food that was deemed acceptable by my family.

I've been shopped out, having gone shopping with the bf on Black Friday after working from 1am to 9:30am. I didn't buy anything but the boyfriend did. :D Sadly, none of it was for me. T_T

Also, I haz a real Christmas tree! I adore the scent of it and am sitting next to it, gleefully inhaling the scents of fir and cinnamon as I am making hot apple cider.

I'm forcing the bf to not be lazy and work on his presentation that he has on Monday. Sadly, his iPhone is helping in his distraction (i.e. LAZINESS!!! D: ) but I'm getting some much needed work done...both online and off.

I'm about to do Christmas Cards! So if you want one, click here to give me the pertinent info. :D

This has been a good weekend. Lots of running around but I got some great memories and a loving boyfriend whom I get to bully be stupidly domesticated with. >:]

How are you doing?

jemz: (Jin - SAY WHAT?!?!)
You know what?

Making candy is hard work and a lot of fun. And really messy.

I made Chocolate Coconut Balls, Oreo truffles, and Chocolate Cookie Dough and all my guinea pigs (THANKS, GUINEA PIGS!!! :D :D :D :D ) like them a lot.

I think I just found my favorite thing to give away at Christmas at the office. ;-)

Also....chocolate chips are my downfall in covering the candies. :/
jemz: (Holiday - bowl of ornaments)
Christmas Card time!

I'm trying to do things early since life has been really hectic. But if you want a handwritten holiday card from me, fill out the poll! I promise not to be behind this year.

[Poll #1486493]
jemz: (Tea)
Life is a blend of hectic activity, exhaustion, and Important Events.

I hate cleaning. Just saying'.

Planning my costume for my Halloween wine party. It's going to be fun! :D I'm gonna be a pirate since I have KAT-TUN's pirate sword penlight to help me out. Arrrgh, matey!

I started to do hiking with the bf. Who's an avid hiker and a big meanie for starting me out on one of the hardest trails in the area.

New phone! :D I got the Blackberry Tour. It's quite shiny.

Ssved some b00bies during my 5K walk in the OC last week. One of the biggest ones in the nation. There were 25,000 other people saving b00bies. :D

Sadly, I had to take out my left tragus piercing due to migration. I'm debating if I want to re-pierce it or not. Migrating after a year and a half is not something I care to repeat.

I've been going to the gym more. Which is good. The only bad parts are that I am sore and that I have less time to devote to LJ.

Still struggling with a few things but I'm hoping things will turn out okay. I'm anxiously waiting for that day.

I haz new Juicy Couture glasses. And they are sexy with their anti-glare coating.

Guess where I'll be NEXT WEEKEND?!?!?!?!?! Having dinner with [ profile] musikologie, [ profile] anumuan, and maybe [ profile] DC. :D

<3 to all of you!
