I've been spending the last few months trying to wrap up all the loose ends for FanimeCon.

If y'all don't know, FanimeCon's MusicFest is having Matsushita Yuya and FLOW. I'm pretty excited for this year's guests.

Things have been super hectic since I'm heading off to Anime Central with a few friends. Gonna catch FLOW performing there as well. I'm excited since I haven't been to Chicago yet. Anyone going to Anime Central want to meet up? I promise I don't bite hard!

Once I get back, a few days later will be FanimeCon. Super excited for this year's convention. I hope all this hard work pays off in lots of smiles and hugs and fantastic times for all the members who come!

Anyways, I should probably start thinking of packing instead of doing more FanimeCon work. My eyes are beginning to cross!


Also, I've started reading manga on Maxi (my iPad2) with a cool app. Any suggestions for manga? I want to download a bunch to read on the plane rides to and from Chicago!

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?
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, [livejournal.com 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: (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: (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: (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 [livejournal.com profile] musikologie, [livejournal.com profile] anumuan, and maybe [livejournal.com profile] mousapelli.....in DC. :D

<3 to all of you!
jemz: (DBSK - so tired!)
It's been a while, hasn't it? I know I failed miserably with the picture series. I actually had enough for 3 days and then I became incredibly busy during FanimeCon that I kept forgetting to take a picture. Plus, I changed my outfits so often that I would forget what I wore.

Exhaustion was my name at the end of it all. Seriously. But things went really well and I'll try to type up something on the ride down to SLO to see [livejournal.com profile] etoilenoir959 "gradumacate" with her degrees.

For now, I'm in the middle of de-compressing from the last two months or so. Curling up for some dramas or Food Network sounds fantastic for the next few evenings.

But for now, excuse me. I've got a date with a pillow, some blankets, and my bed.
jemz: (DBSK - YooSu SQUISH!)
Still alive here!

I wanted to talk about a few things, wrap up my crazy month of April, and talk about my crazier month of May.

But I'm back from New Jersey safely after missing my flight on Sunday. Got to see [Bad username or site: marksykins title=marksy @ livejournal.com] get hitched and nearly shed a tear or two. Got [Bad username or site: illumination title=Dichan @ livejournal.com] drunk. :Dv Ate some delicious food and had a blast with [Bad username or site: mousapelli title=mousaPi @ livejournal.com], [Bad username or site: longleggedgit title=Linds @ livejournal.com], [Bad username or site: illumination title=Dichan @ livejournal.com], and [Bad username or site: marksykins title=marksy @ livejournal.com]!

and then I came home and dived into a huge pile of Fanime emails.

but I have to run! As [Bad username or site: jackoweskla title=Koyamamamamama @ livejournal.com] put it, I'm currently dealing with swine-flu related misfortunes. :(
jemz: (DBSK - so tired!)
Oh hey, look who is online again!? Yup. That's right. ME!!! *happy dance*

Which isn't to say that I haven't exactly been without internet connection since I last posted in the warm lobby of the Hilton Seattle where I was enjoying Sakura-Con with some fantastic friends and making new ones. I've had internet......on my blackberry (aka Shige-Dex). I just haven't had time to make a post!

So what's new/happening/exciting in my life in the past two weeks?

I'm so glad you asked! )

So. How are you doing this fine spring? :D Less hectic than me, I hope. One day soon I will actually comment on your posts! Promise!
jemz: (Jin - SAY WHAT?!?!)
Hellooooooo from Seattle!!!

I'm here and having a lot of fun. :D I've seen a few panels, took some pictures, generally got lost in the convention center that Sakura-Con is held in. :D It's not raining so far but it's a bit chilly! Brrrr. Too bad I didn't bring a warmer coat!

Perhaps there will be pictures but I will have to steal them from my roommates!

Also, I'm amused that wifey has a fanclub. So cute! Her fangirls! :D Makes me a bit envious that I don't have any but that's okay. I don't want to get stalked! XD

But it's getting really late and the bed is calling my name!
jemz: (wave the ass in the air)
ugh. sick again. :(

but you know what's really nice? Wearing these bed socks (winter white w/apple green polka dots) to keep my toes warm while I'm resting up and getting better.

I did a half day at work before going home and crashing out. 4 hour of sleep and my throat didn't dry out completely! Hopefully, I can keep kicking this cold to the curb so I can finish things. I'm so behind! waaaaah! ;O;
jemz: (schedule)
I think I need a weekend from my weekend!

I had a ton of meetings in the past week and a bunch of them were crammed into yesterday. I woke up feeling groggy and discombobulated. The feeling hasn't quite dissipated and the headache behind my right eye is starting to make itself known.

I think I'll work on last week's [livejournal.com profile] jesummary tomorrow. My bed is too tempting not to make it an early night tonight.

Hope everyone is doing well!
jemz: (schedule)
It's been a hectic week filled with fun!

Last Thursday I flew to Los Angeles to help out with Anime Los Angeles. Met some awesome people! [livejournal.com profile] hazelchaz, [livejournal.com profile] ala_mokita, Pearl, Patrick, and Evan! Was drinking every night of the weekend with the last three and [livejournal.com profile] seshat! Twas fab! Also managed to get myself some lovely minions by the names of [livejournal.com profile] karinberry, [livejournal.com profile] koneho, and Steve. LOL. Fantastic times. I've never really had minions before but they were so awesome and I love them all. And Kon is absolutely adorable...just like [livejournal.com profile] karinberry had told me! :D I also may have accepted a promotion. STOP LAUGHING. It'll be less stress! Or so I'm told! :D Way less people than Fanime!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] kenaressa is coming back down for Fanime! SO EXCITED!!!!

Then it was back to work and try to do Fanime prep all week for the meeting on Sunday. I flailed over hot, hot Jin pictures and made a date with [livejournal.com profile] nihongofrancais to pick me up from the airport on Sunday.

Because I'm flying down to LA again on Saturday morning for the wrap up meeting for Anime LA. Meetings all day long. Then fly back the next morning in time for Fanime meetings all day long. Yup, a weekend full of meetings! I'm so far behind on being organized! D:

On top of that, I caught a chest cold. I'm mostly over it but am slightly congested and slept a LOT yesterday. About 15 hours worth. Took a small nap today. I'm totally bringing a ton of cough meds and tea with me down south. Or as I told Evan, who also caught a cold, I'm bringing the herbal tea, he's bringing the drugs. XD Am currently blogging while watching [livejournal.com profile] rightsock, [livejournal.com profile] damiri, [livejournal.com profile] yzo, and [livejournal.com profile] rogue_ravnos all play Rock Band 2.

It's all great fun just hanging out and I wish my new friends from So.Cali was up here with me to rock out. Of course, I'll see Steve again on Sunday and tease him horribly....just for Kon. But a weekend of meetings....joy. Anyone up for some sake afterwards?

Edit: [livejournal.com profile] rogue_ravnos is liquoring me up quite nicely! :D I've got an x-rated drink in hand. YUM.
jemz: (DBSK - so tired!)
Home from LA. Miss Karen and Kon-chan already. Sad I missed K & D at lunch. (Wah, I'm sorry!!!) I had a blast at this convention and it was fun doing something a bit less...stressful.

but now, time for sleeeeeeep. I'll work on Fanime stuff tomorrow.
jemz: (HYD - apples)
How did this year pass by so fast?

I'm still a bit boggled by how quickly time passed me by and that it probably all meant that I was too darn busy to notice! I was telling a few friends that I felt that I didn't accomplish very much this year. So I decided to do a Year in Review and to remind myself that I did accomplish a lot!

I combined it with that meme (Take the first sentence (or two) from the first post of each month of 2008. That's your year in review.)

So what did I do? )

I...think I need more sleep. XD
jemz: (DBSK - Saanta Jae)
Konbachiwa!

I had tea japanesetea and it is delicious! It perks me up whenever I'm staring at the computer screen *O* and waks me up a bit to finish the project! arrowup

I haven't had much time lately but I'm glad to be home house and sleep in my bed sleepy. I've been working hard!! sweat ^_^;; But I promise to be careful, okay?


Ah! Things that made me happy catface
japanesetea Tea! Heart & Mind from Adagio and Pineapple Oolong from Lupicia
lightbulb My dept's holiday decoration. The really low hanging ornaments make me smile. I totally bop them with my head.
lipstick Bare Escentuals Buxom Lip Gloss. <3
sleepy I got home by 9:30pm. *happy*
rain It's raining.


Everyone, try your best at what you're doing, okay!? punch2
jemz: (DBSK - Jae's :|)
Day 4 of the happy meme
+ I AM NOW HOME. after being at work for more than 14 hours
+ dept. holiday potluck. *___* I ate a russian dessert and it was delicious!
+ my eyemakeup looks fab
+ the Heart & Mind tea from Adagio Tea thumbsup

Time to wash my face and sleep for 4 hours before work at 6am.
jemz: (WaT - I Bet You Can't)
Life has been busy as usual and I've splurged myself with something I've been wanting for a while. :D

Meet Jaebaby!!! :D He is adorable, cute, tiny, and every things I need in a mini notebook...or netbook as they are also known.

I took Jaebaby with me on my trip to LA. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to introduce [livejournal.com profile] karinberry to him but everyone else at the meetings on Sunday did. :D

I also had a chance to shop until [livejournal.com profile] seshat's bff dropped. :D I helped [livejournal.com profile] seshat spend a lot of money but I think she's happy with what she's got.

I think I am headed to bed but there's a ton more that I want to write. Ah well, I'll save it for tomorrow! :D

Still working on last week's [livejournal.com profile] jesummary. I've been less of a slacker lately! :D yay me!

Oh, here's a meme. <3

Last night, I

~ had a great dinner with fantastic friends
~ teased [livejournal.com profile] karberry's husband. He has a new nickname of "NICKLE KITTY"
~ was sad that Mike and [livejournal.com profile] karberry didn't feel well enough to go out to the Castro.
~ made a face at my phone's dying battery
~ danced my tush off
~ got hit by an ugly man who was nowhere near as good looking with a hook nose as Alan Rickman. And really, a velvet jacket in a club full of hot, gyrating bodies? -_-
~ got super tipsy! 2 double shots of Patron, some horribly strong Cap'n Morgan and Coke, half of something else, a blueberry kamikaze shot with an adorable and flirty bar boy (taken without hands! What? They were in test tubes!)
~ watched some boys shake their tush in jockstraps, touching themselves in many, many different ways.
~ was told that my boobs were asymmetrical. ARE THEY REALLY?!!??! :O
~ umm...forgot my dead cell phone in Kachang's car. Oops. ^_^;;

Now I'm late for something but hey, I just wanted to share how utterly FAIL I am.

Ta ta, lovelies! Back to San Francisco to shop and then party at Asia SF.
jemz: (WaT - Dr. Koike)
Mmm...still in recovery from the crazy Halloween party, the fantastic time at the California Academy of Sciences, 6 hours of Killer Bunnies, and a day of being amazingly lazy (I even had a gourmet nap!) with sporatic cleaning.

I've resolved myself to try and blog every day this month for National Blogging Day but we all know how incredibly busy I tend to get, so we shall see how long I can last!

Also, I wanted to flail over the all the pamphlets I received from [livejournal.com profile] snowqueenofhoth because OH MY GOD!!! How I love them so and aslkjf;alsfk I've been flipping through them all and just...a;skjf;alskjf I WISH I WAS THERE FOR EACH OF THE SHOW/CONCERT!!! Shige's solow show pamphlet is ridiculously big (as big as the Dream Boys 2008 pamphlets) and Nakamaru's cracks me up while Ueda's is so damn pretty. I may end up doing a list of pamphlets I have just to keep track of them all! *___* And Tsubasa's is amazing.

Okay, off to bed I go.
