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: (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?
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: (wave the ass in the air)
I have work at 4am tonight and I can't fall asleeeeeep.


D:

What's your method of falling asleep when you can't?
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*
jemz: (Jin - pretty in NYC)
HELLO MINNA-SAN!!!

A bit tipsy here! ^_^;;
I went out to meet some friends at a party and ended up staying later than expected! But now I am packing and my head is a bit dizzy *O* I've met some realy cool people though.


And some not so cool people.

D: Why do boys always have to insult my body type? It makes me angry that they don't take the time to know me and just say something superficial about me. anger Because people are more than just their bodies, ne?

D:

Anyways, I am packing for the wedding on Saturday. plane I'm flying out tomorrow! So excited to be on a plane so soon! Too bad we are not in Japan anymore. :( But going to Hollywood is fun!

Hopefully, everything will go well for [livejournal.com profile] veilsdegto's wedding. I hope I'm prepared!

Minna, don't slack on preparations for important events like me! Or you will lose out on sleep. ._.;;


p.s. i like the way my nails look. <3
jemz: (Jin - Hotter than you)
Wah, I've been super busy this week! So I'm just listing things really quick!

microphone Sunday's SF JE Meetup went really well! Peyton and I had a blast organizing the event! We gave out omiyage to them in the form of official JE Shop photos I picked up while in Japan. :D Their favorite JE member/group. We ate lunch at the yummy Juban Yakiniku Restaurant. SO YUMMY. We also did PuriKura and the mad purikura scramble when I yelled "SWITCH!". It was great fun. thumbsup Karaoke was also amazing! We had such rockstars in our midst to liven things up in our room. I hope to see you rockstars again at the next meetup!

pigface Afterwards, we came back to San Jose for some delicious food at Izakaya! MMMMMM. NOM NOM NOM. We even had Otokoyama sake. Peyton didn't realize that Jin's dog in Yukan Club was also named after a alcoholic brand! :D Now she does and she likes their light and slightly dry Ginjo. Umaaaaai!

computer Work sucks. I'm still behind and they gave me a ton of things to work on. I've been working overtime like mad to catch up. And WHY WON'T THEY STOP CANCELLING MY FIX OF THE SYSTEM! I've been trying to resynch my live and shadow boxes before I left for Japan after the other dept's incredible muck up and I'm still trying now. Hopefully, it'll all be done by Friday morning. *grumbles*

scissors Bridesmaid dress is altered! The halter was too long but now it's not! :D All I need is shoes to match. Probably my sparkly white heels. I just got sparkly hair pins to match everything since I'm doing my own hair. No way am I going to pay for an overpriced updo in Hollywood.

lipstick Am packing for the wedding! I have almost everything ready. I just had my red highlights retouched earlier tonight. Nails, facial, and eyebrows are going to be done tomorrow. Then all is left is to fly out for the rehearsal dinner. [livejournal.com profile] veilsdegto, I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!! TWO MORE DAYS.

shoe Any of my flist still into BPAL? I just culled through everything I have and am going to sell most of it off. I can't wear that much perfume and I don't want them to go to waste. If interested, check this post out. I am not charging anyone one my flist shipping. :D Buy my stuff, plz.

camera1 Pictures of Days 3 and 4 will be up soon! I still have to write up my concert reports but that will have to come after the wedding.

martini Wine party tomorrow night! I am excited to see [livejournal.com profile] purelica and the rest of our friends and indulge in a glass or two of wine. Maybe it will help me go to bed earlier than 2am.

document1 I need to start this week's [livejournal.com profile] jesummary. :x

ticket I also need to finish up the bridal party invites for the other wedding I'm in. wahhh, so many weddings!

heartyeyes Jaejoong, Jin, Junsu.....all made my week even better.

^_^;; I may have made more work for myself. But more details on that later.

lightbulb How are all of you?
jemz: (earth in water)
*yawns*

Konbachiwa!

Today, I haven't slept yet!! Too many things to do before I leave for Tokyo! plane Nearly done with packing briefcase and emailing everyone back mailto

I am so excited, everyone!! I love traveling to new places shinkansen and seeing beautiful sights fujisan and eating delicious food onigiricakebreadfishcherryhamburgermartini

But I may be too busy to find internet to post up my travels. Don't worry! I will try my best to write them and keep a photo diary!

My excitement is growingmelody2 as the time approaches for us to leave for the airport! MousaPi and I will meet a familiar face at the airport. Ilana-chan will be in the same terminal around the same time! It will be an exciting reunion!! Ah! My excitement just grows and grows and grows!!

AH! Leaving for the airport in 4 1/2 hours!! watch Time to sleep a little bit sleepy

See you all soon, minna-san!!

jemz: (Jin - Y HALLO THAR)
Let's start off with my To-Do list!

Things to do before Japan!
* Omiage for meeting. Don't let me forget, mousaPi! Bought and Packed!
* Laundry & packing!
* Finish printing out directions and map routes for the shinkansen
* Call hair stylist for hair cut. I have red highlights! And bought some hair care stuff for it!
* Withdraw cash.
* Finish research for Japan.
* Confirm with Casey, meeting at Shin Yokohama Station
* FLAIL A LOT
* Finish[livejournal.com profile] jesummary for the week. I AM FREEEEEEEEEEE!
* GO TO TEN BILLION BBQ's on FRIDAY. Party that night.
* Watch fandom stuff! TOMAAAAAA!!!!! RIIIIIDAAAAAAA!!!!!!
* Finish dl'ing music and upload to iPod. I am craving R&B. Got Ne-Yo's album? Chris Brown? thanks, Tia love! Also, I HAVE w-inds.' NEW ALBUM!!!!! heart1heart1heart1heart1heart1
* PANIC!?
* Try not to work on Fanime stuff! July = rest period!
* Print out bridal invites on vellum. Buy green ribbon and cheesy stickers.
* Reply to comments. Err. I'm bad. :(
* Dinner with Peyton and MousaPi! Vietnamese fooooods on Tuesday.
* Pedicure with MousaPi on Wednesday!

So there really isn't much for me to talk about other than MY REALLY AWESOME HAIR. I did red highlights and they are totally rad in the sunlight. I had to buy new hair care stuff for it but OMG. SO WORTH IT. :Dv I'll upload pictures when I'm done packing and stuff.

Also, I just got new studs for my piercings. White Gold. Totally expensive but I am hoping they are worth it. I've been reacting to the surgical steel post and hoop that I have. Hopefully the new posts will be enough to calm my body down from the metal allergy and heal enough so I can sleep on my side again!!! They are totally sexy. :D I am just waiting for the shiny, sparkly rhinestone gem to come it to match my other one.

Wheeee! I need to post pictures of the care package I got from [livejournal.com profile] jackoweskla and [livejournal.com profile] iverin (or Seekrit Agent Nishikido and Seekrit Agent Higashiyama) !!!! SO MUCH LOVE FOR YOU BOTH. I know I flailed at you the day I got it but omg, must flail again! It made me feel so loved. heart1

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] nerdinside for the lovely flowers! I haven't forgotten! We will have to do lunch when I come back from Japan!


Anyways, let's do a meme so I have something to babble about on the plane. :D Cheerfully from [livejournal.com profile] jackoweskla

1. It begins with a list of all 26 letters of the alphabet.
2. Comment with something you want me to talk about that starts with one of those letters. Choose whatever letters. I don't care which ones.
3. One topic per letter.
4. I will make a new post talking about all 26 topics given to me!

Ugh, it's been super busy!!! But I've checked into my hotel (which is only 20 minutes from home), met up with a fellow Fanime staffer, relaxed a bit with a martini and a jazz band in between a few hours of work, and then I came home to finish packing/shower/sleep. :D

Tomorrow, [livejournal.com profile] kenaressa will be here! I pick her up from the airport after work!

Speaking of work, must scamper to bed!

I won't be answering much except when I do have the time from all the madness that is Fanime this weekend. But I'll keep posting my pictures! I treasure all your comments. <3


The meme everyone is doing and so I'm doing it too just to be trendy! aka, the Week in the Life Meme. Stolen cheerfully from [livejournal.com profile] yamapea who was the first one on my flist to do it!

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.

All these are taken by my PokeShigeDex (aka blackberry pearl :D )

Monday | Tuesday

jemz: (Jin - pretty in NYC)

SO. NYC. MEET UP AT THE KINOKUNIYA AT THE ROCKERFELLA CENTER. I HAVE NO CLUE WHEN MOUSAPI, MARKSY, BETH, AND I WILL GET THERE BUT I WILL ASK THEM AND POST UP THE TIMES. HAVE YOUR PHONES READY OR SPAM ME YOUR DIGITS, BABY! RHEYNE, CIARA, KAMIKA, CLARE. I AM TOTALLY LOOKING AT YOU. :D <3


OMG. SO EXCITED.




P.S. Craigslist wanted ads? Are hilariously funny at times.
jemz: (TeniPuri - don't speak idiot!)
*sighs*

it's just going to be another one of those days.
jemz: (TeniPuri - good as the wall)
It's jolting to realize that it's been nearly two years.

I don't want to think about things but oddly enough, today, all my thoughts were centered on it.

I feel this mixture of sadness, despair, grief, and peacefulness. It's confusing until I step away from it all and look away. When I look back, it's crystal clear.

Either way, I made this decision long ago. It's too late for regrets.
jemz: (geisha)
Just because. :)

some guilty confessions )

How are you doing, flist? ^_^ Got any guilty confessions to make?
jemz: (solitude)
A few things.

♥ Drinks

These are some of the things I've been imbibing in great quantities as of late (to sorta make up for my lack of appetite for solid food)

the liquid diet! )

♥ Asian Boy Bands you should check out. (i.e. Pimp Posts!)

the eye candy diet! good for your ears too. )

♥ Lip Gloss. Because I'm worth it. :-P

I love lip products! )

♥ Some nice bridge accoutrements in Harajuku.

I do so love a male in a suit. *_* )

♥ Song Lyrics.

It's in the Stars! )

Hmmmm...I had more points to put in but I spent a good chunk of my morning on this and will continue it another day.
jemz: (HYD - apples)
Happy White Day!!!


Happy 6th Anniversary to w-inds.!
wheee!!! I can't wait to see them in concert soon!



And because I haven't properly flailed over Hanadan 2 and I watched ep. 8 last night, I just need to squee.


HANAZAWA RUI!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*_*



14 days until [livejournal.com profile] shinigamitabris and [livejournal.com profile] lady_gemma get here!
jemz: (Naruto - tired gaara)
Like Britney to Fed-EX.

Resignin' like Rumsfield.

I ain't no Hollaback girl!


Well. Okay. The last one wasn't a real headliner but today, I feel a bit freer. On to stress over other things. Like going to Japan and having a 1847851851047 things to do between now and my trip to Japan.


Hey y0. Who wants to bring all my hot japanese boys to me so I can drool? XD
