It's been a while, hasn't it?

Well the good news is that I'm still here on LJ! I haven't gone anywhere permanent although I do have a DW account (creatively named jemz if you want to find me! :D ) that can be accessed at work.

Anime Central was a lot of fun and very, very different from my experiences at FanimeCon but in a really good way! I was treated like guest royalty and even did some work for the concert. Then came all the drinking! Man, people in Chicago sure like their drinks! ;-)

FanimeCon was a huge success! The MusicFest concert was utterly fantastic and I'm a huge fan of Matsushita Yuya and a bigger fan of FLOW's. Also, gotta brush up on my dancing skills for the Black & White Ball. Everything went really well despite some hiccups which is totally normal.

I had a pretty good rest over the last two months. But I think it's about time I should announce a huge life change. Well, it's not exactly huge but a pretty major one. :D

But I'm no longer single!

As in........I GOT MARRIED. :D


So, um, how's your summer so far? ;-)
jemz: (panties)
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!
jemz: (schedule)
It's not news that I've been really busy. I've been working on lots of things! But hooray for bullet heart points!

♥ FanimeCon's first musical guest was announced last week! If you haven't checked out Matsushita Yuya's music, check it out! He has some really catchy tunes and nice dance moves!

♥ Work has been really busy. I'm learning lots of coding stuff. Enough to make me dizzy!

♥ FanimeCon has occupied a good chunk of my free time. But I love meeting days in that I get to see everyone and hang out. I like feeling that we're all working to make a great convention and that we care about what we are doing.

♥ Lent! I've decided to give up refined white sugar, meat, and negativity! I think the last one is the hardest but the Lenten season, to me, is about sacrifice and self-improvement! I think there's been a lot of negativity in my life recently and I'm dwelling way too much on it. I'm just going to accept it and push forward with optimisim.

♥ The fiance and I are doing well! Wedding plans are going slow since I'm sort of planning on some major events at a big anime convention.

♥ I've started working out again! Gotta fit into MY wedding dress for MY wedding!!! Heee, I enjoy writing that.

♥ I learned how to make French Macarons. Mmmmm. Sweet and delicious. I need to practice making more.

♥ I want to have pretty nails like [livejournal.com profile] snowqueenofhoth and [livejournal.com profile] mousapelli but....precious time! D: Maybe I can schedule time to do it into my schedule....

♥ Fiance is addicted to Rick Steves' travel shows. He has it on while working. lol.

♥ I got an Android phone! I miss shigedex's (a blackberry curve) buttons. This touchscreen thing is sort of not handy when I am trying to find things without looking at the phone. D: But the apps are shiny.

♥ My hair is getting longer and I really want to cut it super short but I also want to keep it semi-long for the wedding. And I don't really like cutting off my long hair without being able to donate it to Locks of Love. So I'm just making D: faces at it right now. I will probably chop it short after the wedding (WHICH IS HAPPENING NEXT YEAR) but for now tiny trims is all I can satisfy myself with.

♥ *HUGS ALL OF YOU* Stay awesome, flist! <3
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!)
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: (Jin - pretty in NYC)
omg. am drowning in Fanime work and RL work.

But I had a blast watching the Yoshida Brothers play last night. They are so awesome!!!!

Tomorrow night, I'm totally excited to see Epik High!!! And I'll get to squish [livejournal.com profile] halffling & [livejournal.com profile] firefly_wish and maybe [livejournal.com profile] g_aria. [livejournal.com profile] liangzhu will be coming with me and Huong to the concert and the afterparty! :D I AM PRETTY EXCITED.

Then comes Fanime meeting on Saturday. Oh man, I'm so not ready but I'll try my best! Only 6 more days before Fanime begins!!!!!!
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: (DBSK - Happy Jae!)
Yo. I'm still here! Still busy! I'm frantically packing, procrastinating, packing, getting things together, packing for NEW ORLEANS to see ISO and JENY. OMG. I'm so excited! You have no idea how much running around I've done. I haven't checked LJ in ages and I feel so behind!!!

BUT BACK TO PACKING THINGS TO SEE ISO. OMG. YAY!!!!! Next time I post, I'll be in New Orleans. With ISO and Jeny. FLAILING LIKE MAD. fja;sldkfj;aslkdfj;laskjf;asldfj;aldsfkj;aldsfkja;ldsfkj;asldfj;ladsjf;ladsjf;ladsjf;ladsjf;ljadf;ljadsf;lja;ldsfj;ladsjf;lasdjf;lafdj

This means a long weekend of fun, laughter, ISO and JENY, bachelorette party madness, drinks galore, banana fosters at Brennan's, dinner at Palace Cafe, clubbing, dancing, girl talking, sexy dresses and fierce makeup, and a whole lotta fun.


Gotta finish packing, shower, and sleep before going in to work for a half day. I'm flying out at 2:30pm, so watch out for random text messages from me as I WILL BE STUCK in Vegas for 2 1/2 hours without interwebs. woe.
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: (Jin - pimp hat)
So today, I have a [livejournal.com profile] karinberry and a [livejournal.com profile] koneho as my minions and they are not complaining. :D


I think I really like this convention.
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 - lean back)
I'm totally happy with my nails this time! But it's late and I need sleep!

Rules!

1. You must take between six and eight new photographs per day.
2. Your WITL must be consecutive. no skipping days.
3. You must post your photographs at the end of that day, sometime after the last picture is taken.
4. Each photograph must have the time taken beneath and a title, with no other explanation.


Days
Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday

my nails are pretty this time! )
jemz: (w-inds. - Ryohei's mic)
I've been a bit restless tonight. Exhausted but restless. I've been working 11-12 hour days this week and half of last week and will probably do so until my class starts on the 22nd of this month. Work is insane but I'm learning so much. :D I can read some of the SUPRTOOL code that we use at work to solve problems and have been feeling bits and pieces of pride in between the rush to get things done and the feeling that I'm not doing enough to meet expectations. Add in an unexpected systems migration to an open systems (or Windows/Oracle) in the mix along with rock-solid commitments for two weddings and a festival and you will get an exhausted me. As Iso and I like to say....MMRRRR. :|

And now I can't sleep. wah.

Time to list all the things I need to do not at work/weddings/festival. I should probably schedule my time better. >.>
jemz: (Arashi doesn't believe you. :|)
ARRRRGH.

SO DAMN IRRITATED.

I spent all week running around at work and trying to absorb how to read code in SUPRTOOL at work. Spent about 50 hours at work. I was totally looking forward to getting a manicure/pedicure as a way of pampering myself for the really stressful week.

Instead, I'm totally pissed off at the job this place did. I'm paying extra for an ugly design AND the lady cut my nails WAY TOO SHORT and then did a cross between square nails and rounded nails. WTF. Seriously. If I said just round the corners of the square nails a bit more so I don't cut myself when I scratch my arms or face or etc, then that means don't turn one side into rounded nails and the other square!.

Totally not going back. There are bubbles in my nail polish and they didn't pay attention to how much pain they were giving me during the cuticle cutting. Shitty, y0.

Instead of being relaxed and happy, I'm irritated even more and I'll be going into work tomorrow totally irritated. Because I wasted money on a shitty manicure. Two weeks before a wedding.

Yeah.

I think I'm going to cool my temper with some cold sake. And buy some nail polish remover.

So totally unimpressed. :| :| :| :|
jemz: (Horikita Maki)
Konbanwa, minna-san!

Maaa, today was so hot!! I hope everyone wore sunscreen~ sun

But I missed the heat because I was at work all day long! computer Working away on so many issues...with my new boss. I'm learning a lot!! Even though I'm a bit overwhelmed with informationmailto, it's slowly sinking in and I feel so much more productive!

Even though there was so much work I could not understand in the past 3 weeks, just having someone who knows the language makes the work a lot easier to do! I have this feeling of "Ahh! I can do it if I keep trying harder!!". So even if I don't understand right away, I can always try to figure out the pieces undefined10.

As this week flew by, I've been working really hard! Soon, the weekend will be here and I can relax! I'm looking forward to it!

Stay cool, minna-san!


P.S. Jin is so freakin' adorable when he's nervous and interviewing Jodie Foster in English by himself. ;akfja;lskfjasf SO CUTE. *flails*
