haven't updated in a while huh?

well... recap of recent happenings...

went to Fanime on saturday, picked up some old '97 pokemon roller stamps that still work and an electrivire pokedoll. I also bought Miyu a purple and black hair bow as part of a birthday present but gave it to her after con to cheer her up a little because hardly anyone knew who she was (she cosplayed the broken neck lady from the fatal frame games) and she seemed really happy with that.

I've also bought a lot of things from y!j Auctions of pokemon things... majority are birthday presents for Miyu and Ari... some are for myself too.


Miyu, Ari, and I are getting into the idea of doing game plays and such and throwing them up on youtube. Who knows, if I manage to scrape together enough money, I'll buy myself a Dazzle for macs and then I can really record nice game plays instead of pointing my Zi6 at the screen.

right now I'm waiting for both Ari and Miyu to come over... Ari should be here after fixing herself and her mother some dinner and Miyu will be here in a couple of hours... she'll be staying the night too.

shes also bringing her PS2 and some games.. <3~

Walked about 3 miles this morning with my friend~ she also found this old hoody she hardly wore and the best news? I fit it and its actually a little lose :D which is awesome news seeing as how I use to never even fit anything of hers :D so I AM losing weight/inches~

but its a really cute hoody... camo with black lace~ but... sadly it isn't hoody season anymore ; 3; spring is getting to warm to even wear t-shirts.. - A-;;

uhgn... my face is slightly burnt... and my feet have blisters... and I've covered basically both feet in band aids... XD

I'm so tired... I feel like I just want to skip gym tonight... but I shouldn't. Sides... I think it's to late to call and have them cancel me coming in or rearrange today's class ... ah well...
maxwell: (pout - Youko)
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 ... :/
