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

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: (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 - 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!

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.

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: (Holiday - bowl of ornaments)
It's been an awesome weekend, my friends! I had NO work at all besides a few phone calls but I SLEPT IN. uwaa, it was a wonderful feeling!

Today, I uploaded new music to Teppei (iPod), went shopping with some of my favorite ladies ([livejournal.com profile] damiri and [livejournal.com profile] aelfsciene), bought some great stuff on sale, had frozen yogurt and Beard Papa's creampuff for my wild card day (LORDIE, IT WAS DELICIOUS), spent some time with family and eating fantastic food, and am now winding down after trying to catalog my concert pamphlets/photobooks/dvds while packing for Anime LA.

Seems busy but really, it's not! I caught up with people who matter lots to me and destressed!

Soon, I'll post up my new resolutions for 2009 and maybe list things I've done in 2008 so I don't feel like a loser workaholic loser and that I've not accomplished a lot.

But yay for a free weekend of just doing things for me!!!
jemz: (SuJu - white jacket)
Okay, today I feel this need to put on some cute makeup and clothes. It's gorgeous outside and I woke up a bit grumpy. But hey, TIME TO CHEER MYSELF UP, Y/Y? A large latte and some hugs will do the trick!

Also! I've been remiss in being on LJ with work, finals, and jehols coming up, SO if you are sending cards, I WANT ONE. :D I love snail mail although I fail in sending some out. I will try again this year to send some out. :D So PM or email me for my address, or leave a link to yours and I'll fill it out while I'm at the meetings today. :D

Also, have a meme! I'm in all sorts of fandoms but I'm the most active with the JPop ones than any of the others (kpop, harry potter, prince of tennis, hikaru no go, house). :D These sorts of these always cheer me up when I'm feeling overwhelmed with my workload. If you do one too, let me know!

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: (DBSK - lean back)

I think I'm getting better at multi-tasking my life. Just by a little bit.

Photos will come soon! And yes, clare-hai, I'll do that photoblog of my outfits for the week. :-P
jemz: (DBSK - so tired!)
*flops* sleepy

Life has taken a rather hectic turn. Well, more hectic than usual. :-P

phone3 Work has increased and I find myself staying longer and longer or working on Saturdays just to be able to keep up and breathe above water. My coworker is recovering nicely from his heart surgery but I will be most relieved when he is back in the office mid-September. Until then, let's see how well I can balance the increase of work with everything else.

document1 I've taken to writing to do lists lately. And then fail at finishing half of them. Like practicing my hiragana. But I've been working on [livejournal.com profile] karberry & kuya's wedding stuff and the fun joint bridal party invitations are looking cute. I still need to finish more of them and get the addresses to send them off but I am enjoying the theme so far. :D "Sweet & Sour Soiree" is what the party is called. I've got a few recipes to try out!

eyes I had a list of things I wanted to talk about but I forgot. face26

Oh, I remember!

rice I've been eating a lot recently. So many parties and bachelorette parties and meet ups and fooooood!!! But I am being good and started working out again. I started out slow and just walked but I'm hoping that I can keep up and hit the gym every day so I can fit into that dress. I'm also back to that no refined sugar diet I was on last year. I found it helped a lot!

snowman [livejournal.com profile] je_holiday signups are closed and man, I was bouncing in excitement when it closed. 106 people signed up! SO EXCITING. Now, I have to schedule time to work on the assignments with Beth since work has stepped up it's frenzy. Let's hope I don't fall over in exhaustion by the time this week is out.

baseball I'm sad the Olympics are over. But I am looking forward to the Winter Olympics. :D

magnify I started playing more with my makeup after reading [livejournal.com profile] koneho's beauty/makeup posts. I have so much MAC makeup! But my color palette is not very diverse. It's all blues, purples, and greens. Neutral? What's that? ^_^;;

book1 Also, I have a project for next year. I'm going to scrapbook a journal of my travels. Especially since my goal of exploring California next year in lieu of a big overseas trip.

soon I miss having free time. Wandering around Michael's for supplies to make the invitations made me want to pick up my arts&crafts hobbies again.

clock wahhh. I feel like I'm forgetting something and the clock is working against me.

bell I don't know if I want expensive jewelry or another trip more right now. Tiffany's or Carmel?

arrowround I'm also feeling a bit useless. All this time has gone by and what exactly have I accomplished? I should ponder this with over a glass of pinot noir.
jemz: (Jin - Apricate)
Today is full of laziness and leisure.

I slept in until 10am (totally luxurious!) and had a leisurely late lunch!

It's been a wonderful day so far and I have a jug of sun tea brewing outside to sip and enjoy in an hour or so.

Today has been made even sweeter after I found out I have tickets to see KAT-TUN in Osaka and w-inds. in Yokohama! :D SO EXCITED, EVERYONE!!! I flailed super hard at mousaPi and shabz. Now to find tickets for Kanjani8 in Fukui. *crosses fingers!*

BUT I AM REALLY EXCITED TO SEE W-INDS. ON THEIR OPENING CONCERT OF THE TOUR. YES. AND JIN'S HIPS. :D I WILL SEE THEM IN ACTION IN PERSON!!!!

Now I've got America's Best Dance Crew on tv and about to work on [livejournal.com profile] jesummary and a few other things.

Best lazy day ever.
jemz: (DBSK - so tired!)
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

I had a huge and utterly delicious dinner at Curry House this evening that sapped all my energy to think. So much so that I forgot to take a picture of my dinner. Oops. tomorrow?

Off to bed. I'm up early tomorrow. <3

So, I'm utterly exhausted and have been up for more than...*checks watch* 19 hours or so. I'll write about my weekend sooner or later! But first, have a meme!
