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: (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: (Yamapi - MMMM. FOOOD!)
Konbachiwa, minna-san!!

I hope everyone has been eating well so far this year! I've been taking care of what I am eating lately. So many delicious things to eat!!

Tonight, my friends and I surprised our friend during the girls' movie night. It was fun and very sneaky. hehehehe She was super surprised!! We got her a delicious cake and balloons. All of us were calm and sly about the surprise, talking normally and excited about the movie. Then BAM!!

Birthday cake with lots of birthday !!

BIG SURPRISE!! :D

It was good to celebrate birthdays together. Even better to hang out with good friends.

Such a good night. hehehehe
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

The adventures of jemz and mousaPi (ie. the grand adventures in fail)

YAY! We are safely landed in Japan. Not much going on yet but we had a lovely time gabbing with [livejournal.com profile] ilanabean42 and her friend, Meaghan. Then we met up with [livejournal.com profile] alissa at their terminal while I was on the phone with [livejournal.com profile] bloodybrilliant. We passed her around like a h0 (which she totally admits that she likes) and said happy goodbyes to Ilana, Meaghan, and Alissa before heading over to our own terminal.

It was just enough that we didn't have to wait too long before boarding our own flight to Tokyo. It was fun. The flight was long and we tried to sleep. Key word is try. But I have swollen ankles to prove I made it through the pressurized flight and every time I glanced over at mousaPi, she would either do one of the following: wiggle in glee, say whoo hoo, or stare like hamster at me and then looked away. I think her guinea pig has been giving her lessons in staring. :/

"Watch out, jemz. I'm going to be watching you from outside your capsule." states MousaPi who's sitting next to me (reading over my shoulder).

Big words from her. But it's really cute how she's so excited to just be in Japan that it fuels my own excitement! We made it through the immigration, customs, currency exchange, and the ticket counter for the Keisei Skyliner only to be balked at the cell phone counters. I did not want to go to the fourth floor of the mall to slap more money on the pre-paid phone I borrowed. Oh well. Maybe in Akihabara we will find a store and get that handled. :D

Our adventures have started and I'm looking forward to the next 10 days, both of ultimate coolness and utter fail. MousaPi already has a head start. She made some random Japanese man trip over his feet. :D Way to go, Pi.

Anyways, Ryohei-top is out of batteries. More to come when we arrive at the futuristic Capsule Inn in Akihabara. I feel strange things will be occuring tonight.

Okay, so my battery died on the Ryohei-top. But we're at the Capsule Inn now and up on the top floor in the women's lounge trying to get internet on our laptops. Sadly, we are currently failing.

mousaPi wants to say we're alive and I just want to check my email. I miss everyone already and it's pretty warm here. The humidity is like a slap in the face when we walked out of Ueno Keisei station to cross the street to the JR Ueno station. The sky sprinkled fat raindrops on us. It was sprinkling when we arrived at the Capsule Inn as well.

The Capsule Inn is pretty nifty. The capsules aren't as small as I originally thought they were (I get a touch caustrophobic) and they really are pretty cool. Our pods are next to each other and we took dorktastic pictures to me laughing, "Oh hey! It's mousaPI in a POD!"

So now we're just chilling and I am elevating my swollen ankles in a poor attempt to get them to stop being swollen. This happened last yearr too. Sadly, they hurt. D:

Okay, off to see [livejournal.com profile] shimmeredusk and have dinner! Yay!
jemz: (earth in water)

jemz: (Jin - blank canvas)
You know what I hate?

Firmly reminding yourself to do certain things while in the shower and when you get to your laptop to do these things, you forget. D:

But at least I am getting things done.

mailto Fanime emails, mostly done.
NG smsumm, not done. D:

jemz: (Jin - Keep the Faith)
AIITE, Y'ALL.

I AM ALIVE. :D AND IN NEW ORLEANS AND I SURVIVED MARDI GRAS!!!!

It's been a blast so far! I AM WITH ISO!!!!! She is so adorable and awesome and teeeeeeny and so flaily and awesome!

I arrived in New Orleans in the middle of the night due to my flights being delayed all evening. I then caught about 3 hours of sleep before waking up to get ready for Mardi Gras madness in New Orleans. SO MUCH FUN!!!!

I can't even begin to describe how much fun it is. It's so much like Halloween in the Castro but in the daytime or like the Gay Parade in San Francisco except without all the throwing of beads.

HERE. HAVE SOME PICTURES. :D SORRY, I WAS TOO LAZY TO RESIZE. :D

MARDI GRAS TIME )

;alskjf;aslkf

I'm having such a blast here and being with Iso and meeting her wonderful friends is just making this experience so wonderful! It's been fantastic and Mardi Gras was everything I expected and more! I totally want to come back again with some great friends and just have a grand time. :D

So excited that I can't really sleep yet. Plus, I should update [livejournal.com profile] smsummary. :D
