jemz: (DBSK - Happy Jae!)
Thank you for all the well wishes! They made me smile gleefully.

Life as a married dame has been uneventful so far. It's still a bit strange to call him my husband or any cute variant of the title (my current favourite is "hubmeister") but we're slowly getting used to it. We do the usual social stuff like birthday parties and family dinners. But I love hanging out with my family and friends.

So far, I've been sleeping a lot lately and just enjoying a slightly slower pace for this cool summer as well as all the delicious summer fruits.

Also, I am now 15 weeks pregnant.

:D How have you been doing this summer?
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: (Toma approves!)
Happy New Year bell , minna-san!

I've decided that it's the return of j-web Thursdays!!

I missed writing in my journal document1 and thought this was a good way to start again peacenosign

I will try my best to write more arrowup
thumbsup I've been bad, ne? ^_^;; But I hope everyone will still read my journal :D

New Year always brings new goals. Sometimes, the same goals happen again! One year, I said I wanted more sleep sleepy but I completely failed at that. ._.;;

So this year, my goal is to writepen at least every Thursday!

There's so much to do this year but starting with simple goals is a good sparkles way to be motivated!!

What are your goals for the new year? pencil ear

Bonjour!!!

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.
EUROTRIP! )
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, [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: (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!)
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?

Update!

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: (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 - JaeJoong with Mickey ears)
y0!

It's been a while since I last posted and trust me, things have been uber crazy! Epik High was amazing and lasted until almost midnight but the boys gave a fantastic show since they decided to kick it off in the Bay Area where Tablo, MYK, and KERO ONE are all from around here. Well, technically, Tablo's only lived here for at least 8 years. Old stomping grounds...:D


So now I'm on-site for Fanime. Yay for crazy times ahead! I'm going to get my nails done and then pick up [Bad username or site: mousapelli title=mousaPi @ livejournal.com] and Evan at the airport. :D

But before all that, I had mentioned that I was going to do A Week of Life...picture series!

Here's the first one for yesterday!

Wednesday, )


So. How are YOU doing? :D
jemz: (NewS - Koyashige do not want!)
it really sucks when you're out having fun and being busy and all of sudden you just toss all your cookies.

i really hate throwing up.

too bad, i know that feeling way too intimately and totally involuntarily.
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: (w-inds. - Ryohei  - the sky! the sky!)
Konbachiwa, minna-san!

Today, I am very hopeful! lightbulb

Nothing special happened. rightarrow Nothing exciting in my life. Just a beautiful, ordinary day. clover

It finally feels like spring is here littlediamond A gentle hug from the sun and light kisses from the wind. Beautiful and yet, so ordinary.

Ordinary days are ones that I always miss when life is downarrowarrowupanger*O* So I never really notice ordinary days until it's too late. clock

So today...sun I just took some time to notice.

The flowers in bloom. littlediamond The sun is shining brightly. sun The sky is a gorgeous blue. The air a bit crisp.

A cup of delicious tea in hand. japanesetea And I'm glad to be alive.
