ughn... tired.

Anyways.. yesterday dad and I went out to Sears to get a new dryer because our old one (20 years old at least...) finally crapped out a few days ago... we got one that seems to be simple enough for me to remember how to use it..

So we picked it out, paid for it, and opted for shipping, delivery, and haul away the old one.

Sept I wasn't awake (passed out accidentally after dinner) when Sears was suppose to call and schedule the delivery and no one has told me when... or left a note telling me! I have to play the waiting game :/ its so annoying because I REALLY don't want to deal with the delivery and installer people because ... I'm socially retarded D:

So thats my little annoyance for today...


anyways... we also went to the County Square Market too after Sears... picked myself up some UCC Coffee... its cold coffee in a can with milk... it tastes alright.. sept I can still taste coffee bitterness.. XD so its not excellent to me... and I also picked up this other stuff that I can read the name of... but its Iced Coffee with Milk in a plastic bottle.... and holy crap there is not enough milk in that stuff ; 3; tasted nasty...


I'm starting to get really antsy and excited... over two things....

1) Summer/Fall semester registration on the 13th... next month is when I start summer classes. I start Japanese and I take my math class.. but I still need to figure out how I'm getting to school = A= if I can bum a ride from my friend (who is also going to Japanese with me)'s sister.. or figure out the bus schedule again...

2) BJD related... Heliots have started shipping somewhat... either way it means that Ambers will start to ship soon and then Glatis and Glots... I'm awaiting a blank Amber head with human body from one split and from another her wig (I keep forgetting about getting that wig!) and then I'm awaiting a Glati directly from Soom, Glati will be coming with a face up, wig, and eyes.. I also have ordered an outfit for him and shoes. I already have an outfit for my Amber, just waiting for shoes and a cardigan I got for her at the same time I got my Glati's clothes and shoes.


so those are my two happy points...


ughn... I hate how I watch these videos from TUJ students, or anyone just recording their Japan... it gives me a tinge of... as stupid as it sounds... home sickness... now I'm not a weeabo that thinks Japan is all mighty perfect... but I just can't help but feel a little down... but I just need to work hard on getting my credits and raising my GPA... and then I'll be able to get to TUJ and spend the first 4 years of my 'adult' life ... stressing out about money and stuff 8D

its funny... me going to TUJ can be seen as a double blade sword... on one hand, the degree I recieve from them is seen by TWO governments... the American Government and the Japanese Government.. it gives me an expeirence I'd probably wont have any other way (being a college student in anything but a community college... if that makes sense), I'd get to live in the place I've wanted to visit for ages...

but on the other hand... I'll constantly worry about money... constantly worry about tuition being paid, paying for books and supplies. After the first semester (3 months) TUJ kicks you out of the dorms so you have to find your own housing... so that'll also put on the stress of having the money for a monthly rent, utilities, etc. etc.

I really don't want to do the stereotypical gaijin thing though and become an English teacher... but I guess if thats the only way I can get a paycheck... then I guess I'll have to bow my head and suck it up and teach English.. I mean... there is nothing wrong with teaching English.. I'm not knocking it or anyone who does teach English, but for me to teach English? yeah... its difficult for me to even teach a friend how to knit.. so I wont be the best at teaching..

I also hope that I'll be able to spare some money to do a week visit or something to Tokyo next year... uhhhg... probably wont happen because I need literally ALL my money to be saved... because of Tuition for the first semester needs to be paid ALL up front... thats 16k right there... THEN I need to proove I have access to 3mil yen... THREE MILLION YEN... which right now translates to $30,000usd... THIRTY THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS.... UGH UGH UGH UGH! >_< the 3mil yen is to prove that I wont be a burnden to the japanese tax payers... and that'll give me my student visa...


maaan... I need a job :/ two... or three XD


anyways... I think this is getting long enough ... :/

So I picked up this Strawberry Soda drink from County Square Market like... a week or so ago, still good. It also tastes good... but the problem with it is its so acidic that I can only stand to drink a gulp or two at a time... so I usually only take a drink once a day XD

but seriously... its like after I swallow... its like getting punched by strawberries X-x


there seems to be a theme with Japanese drinks... their either to sweet or to acidic..

= 3= and here I was hoping to find a somewhat better drink to obsessively drink by the time I have to leave for Japan... because lets face it... soda is expensive anywhere... and the amount I drink a day? yeah... my caffeine addiction would quickly put me in the poor house...

I'm not a tea person, but I tried Honey Milk Tea and Strawberry Milk Tea... honey was gross but strawberry was okay... but like I said, I'm not a tea person so I can't drink those without feeling gross...

blehh.... wonder if I can stop in at CSM sometime this week so I can pick up more drinks XD
