I should post here from time to time, huh? I barely post on LJ as it is but at least this is accessible at work.

Anyways, pregnancy is going well despite the itchiness of PUPPPs and being stressed out at work. Looking forward to maternity leave that starts NEXT FRIDAY, Dec. 30th!!! Ending this year RIGHT and starting out the new year all relaxed and HAPPY and stress-free for the baby!

Just gotta breathe through the next 10 days.

Also, today marks the end of my 33rd week. Only 6 weeks left for baby girl to arrive!
jemz: (Holiday - cupcake!)
oh ho! I am seekritly posting from work now that the ban on lj here has been surprisingly lifted! :D

Hi everyone! *waves* It's been a while since I was on here. Everything is going well and things have been crazy hectic. Well...more hectic than usual!

I'm officially 28 weeks today! Whoooooohoooo! And we're having a lovely baby girl. Hubmeister and I are super excited to meet her and we're just sort of enjoying experiencing this pregnancy together. Although he's a bit tired of constantly rubbing Vitamin E oil on my belly or stopping me from scratching myself raw, he's been taking the time to talk to her and play 80s hi-nrg music. Which she loves and WILL dance to. I've got the internal bruises to show it!

What else have I been up to? Oh, we moved into the Master Bedroom in our house (like, this past weekend!) so I've been spending hours cleaning and packing when I'm not at work or in SF. Pretty excited to start decorating and creating a positive space for us and our baby girl.

I'm also really excited for the holidays. I'm going to put up a post for holiday cards later this week since I'm definitely getting a head start and I found all my holiday cards. I'm trying harder to be better organized at things. So far, so good!

So how are you doing?

It’s amazing to me that within the span of a year, I went through so many ups and downs on a huge emotional rollercoaster.

I was ecstatic to hear that Dad was cancer-free, then it came back, we found our first apt together only to have the N lose his job, giving up our apt., then he accepted another job the day we left for our Euro-trip, he asked my parents for my hand in marriage and proceeded to propose to me in the fabulous and romantic Gardens of Versailles, we came back to the States only to immediately head to Stanford Hospital where Dad was hospitalized for a few days, then deal with the struggles of an aggressive cancer and all its side effects, then lose Dad in his struggle, the arrangements of his funeral, stepping up to take all the responsibilities as head of the household, to dealing with grief, finding normalcy in life without him, to planning our wedding, to getting married a week and a half ago at SF City Hall.

All in the span of a single year.

Crazy, isn’t it? But life is so precious. I’m cherishing every moment of mine.
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!

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: (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!

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

Konnichiwa, minna-san!

I'm a little late but something incredible happened last night!

I was writing my entry when all of a sudden, all the power disappeared. It was a bit startling but immediately candles were lit birthday. Candlelight is very pretty. birthday We had them everywhere! But they were very pretty surrounding the gorgeous roses Beth sent me!! I sat and gazed at the flowers, enjoying the peacefulness of the evening. :D

Then I got bored. Nothing was working! No tv computer phoneto so I went to sleep.

I woke up to electricity. It's times like these that I realize how much I depend on it. ^_^;;

I hope everyone is doing well!

jemz: (Jin - blank canvas)

And Happy Chinese/Vietnamese/Lunar New Year, everyone! Keep celebrating life.

Because I'm curious!!!

jemz: (streeeetch)
Still sick. Wah.

Also, lost Teppei (my 80GB iPod) somewhere in LA which makes me SADFACE a lot because I am completely attached to it and I feel like a piece of me is missing somewhere.

I've dropped my Japanese class for the quarter because I want to concentrate on getting healthy before turning my attention elsewhere. And with my workaholic tendencies, I think this will be a slight struggle.

I totally want to stay in bed all day today but off to work I go.
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

happy meme

I missed yesterday's happy meme so here it is!

Day 2
+ watching people flail over jehols
+ ShabzTeejShirley heart1
+ a hug from Fishbot
+ seeing good friends for however a brief moment
+ rain
+ had pretty makeup on

Today, Day 3
+ Peyton, Nikki, Koyamamamama
+ my order from Adagio Teas came in. MMMMMM. LOTS OF TEA. *___*
+ posting up on jehols
+ flailing with people.
+ being a tease.
+ string cheese

Gah, I'm exhausted. Barely have enough energy to brush my teeth and wash my face. Doing 40 hours of work within 3 days is exhausting. It's been two days and I could only stand to work about 25 hours so far. Tomorrow will be a really long day.

I am so sleeping in this weekend.
jemz: (DBSK - Jae's :|)
Mmm, today I am glad to be alive.

Konbanwa, minna-san.

I've been really sick earlier this week. *O* It was pretty bad and I was completely useless downarrow. I slept sleepy a lot and drank lots of soup rice.

It took me a while, but I fought back!! punch2 I didn't want to stay sick any longer anger. So I enjoyed my sleep. sleepy hehehehe And by enjoying all that sleep, the cold went away thumbsup. Victory! peacenosign

So today, I'm glad I'm healthy enough to enjoy the day. Be sure to take care of yourselves, everyone!

This is jemz sparkles signing off now!
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!

How are you doing today?

Today started out s l o w l y for me. My bed was comfortable and my house was warm. But it was watch to be at factory, working on my tickets and projects. >_<

But while working, I was listening to some happy music! melody It cheered me up arrowup and I started :D more. Without my headphones, it was nice to listen melody that made me want to dance!!

Now I'm back in my warm bed, happy and well-fed with delicious Thai food, and I marvel that my day that started out not so good turned out really happily. I can keep going despite feeling DD: and *O* and my day will end up thumbsup as long as my tomodachi are there to flail with.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the United States!! Did you eat well!?

I had lots of food onigiricakericebreadcup So much that I was really full!! sweat

Today is not just about food, ne? It's about giving thanks to what we hold important in our lives. I'm thankful for my family and friends. thumbsup My life is made richer because of them and YOU. I'm thankful for food. Because it's so delicious and I'm very happy when I'm eating with friends and family. These are things that give me strength to work long hours (even tonight! at 1:30AM! DD:) and do the things I need to accomplish.

I'm thankful most of all to being alive. Because I can keep growing, keep experiencing new things and loving hearts who I want to love lovely , to achieve things that I've always been interested in achieving, and being loved in return. heart1

And in being thankful on this day, I remember and grieve for those whose innocent lives were taken away so cruelly in the world. I thank that their presence made someone happy for a period of time. I thank them for their time, enriching others no matter how brief their earthly stay.

Today, I am thankful for everything. Tomorrow, I will keep trying to make a difference in the world. lightbulb Minna, I hope you will try along with me.
jemz: (w-inds. - Ryohei  - the sky! the sky!)
Konbachiwa minna-san!

It's been a busy week and I don't think it has even ended yet. ^_^;; A week where I feel very rushed shinkansen to do many things and only finishing about 1/2 of my missions! I'm sad I didn't finish everythingdownarrow. I'm even more sad when I see my list and see lots more to do downarrowdownarrow


martini A glass of wine later and feel energized to do some more! arrowup I will keep trying my best to finish everything so that I can sleep all weekend!! sleepy :D

I look back at this week and see that lots of things are completed. peacenosign Then I start reading something that I wrote pencil years ago and it made me think of my growth, who I was then glasses and whom I've become today. I realized lightbulb that despite not being really good at managing my time clock, I've developed this skill a lot! When I was younger, I didn't know how to manage my time hourglass at all. *laughs* Now, I'm always busy, ne?

I think the me in the past would be happy :D about who I am now. OK No regrets, ne? "Live life without regrets." One of the phrases that changed my life for the better. melody

What phrase inspires you in life?
jemz: (Jin - Apricate)
Konbanwa, minna-san!

moon4 The moon is very pretty, ne? I can see it when I drive car2 home house from a long day at work sweat.

I've been very busy but I stopped and looked up at the moon moon2 and felt very calm. With a glass of wine martini and some delicious gyoza rice, I felt some of my worries fall off my mind for a while as I gazed at the night sky.

I see my dreams scattered across the stars sparkles. I feel the peace surrounding me, the chill air kissing my face ^_^ as I sip on my wine martini.

Once in a while, I wonder what it would be like to be able to touch the moon.
