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!

I'm super behind on everything but life has been super busy!

I've helped out with a charity event with some of my favorite Fanimaid Cafe girls. Did a ton of venue tours for my wedding. Working like crazy! Been trying to cook more often. RSVP'd for 2 more weddings (that's a total of 4 for the year!). Did lots of pushups and situps. Worked on FanimeCon for days. Visited Dad on his birthday (April 1). Did more wedding stuff. Found a pair of seriously sexy heels while shopping for wedding shoes.

whew!

Hopefully I can get back to posting on a regular basis again! Hope everyone is doing well. <3

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

Hi. I'm still around. I'm totally swamped with wrapping things up for the anime convention that is at the end of the month. Dad is getting better and better by the day. The bf and I are doing well and we are planning some big things in the future (namely going to Europe for two weeks!).

How are you guys doing?
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.

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: (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: (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: (DBSK - lean back)
I am doing ten million things at once.

and all I can post about is that my States Quarters collection is almost complete!!! I am only missing Idaho, Alaska, and Hawaii.

Anyone have these quarters?

I think I need a weekend from my weekend!

I had a ton of meetings in the past week and a bunch of them were crammed into yesterday. I woke up feeling groggy and discombobulated. The feeling hasn't quite dissipated and the headache behind my right eye is starting to make itself known.

I think I'll work on last week's [livejournal.com profile] jesummary tomorrow. My bed is too tempting not to make it an early night tonight.

Hope everyone is doing well!

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.
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: (Holiday - starry cutters)
Today started off wonderfully lazy. I woke up at 5:30am and thought to myself, "I don't have to go to work today!!!" and promptly went back to sleep.sleepy IT WAS GLORIOUS!!

So I'm just tooling around online and cleaning up a few things around the house. Going to make chocolate chip yogurt cookies soon to bring over to [livejournal.com profile] racerxmachina & [livejournal.com profile] roseembolism for their High Tea festivities. I'm going to bring over some of my teas to share. <3

But for now, it's been a fantastic day of laziness so far.

JE_Hols is now done with posting. I'm really glad things went off successfully despite all the madness and flurry behind the scenes. I'm going to miss being able to post fics every day and watching people flail. Watching people enjoy it means a lot! And the turnout!? heartyeyes So much love for everyone who participated!!

Oh! Now that I have a bit more time, I wanted to know who you think I should friend?! I know there are some people who friended me while I was insanely busy and I didn't get a chance to friend them back, so they de-friended me. I'm very sorry if you were one of them! But since work is easing up, I have more time to flail! :D Recommend me someone I need to flail around with?
jemz: (Holiday - red xmas treeeeee)
Konbachiwa!

It's been very cold today snowman. But that is good because it is Christmas! christmastree

On this day, just like Thanksgiving, I am very thankful for my friends and family. Even if you are not here with me, I think I would not be who I am without each of you. thumbsup

Besides from working today factory, I had a very relaxing Christmas!! Despite being home alone (my family is scattered doing fun things since they are free and don't have to work tomorrow), I am drinking sparkling wine martini and enjoying catching up on things. arrowup My favorite music is blasting melody and I feel happy. :D It's really the simple things that make me happy. lightbulb

I still feel like I could sleep all day! ^_^;; But there's still more relaxing to do and one more day of work left.

Maa, let's all try our best to enjoy the last days of this year, okay?
jemz: (DBSK - Saanta Jae)
am running out the door to get to work but

HAVE A LOVELY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!!!!!!!

<3,
jemz
