♥ Had a wonderful evening tonight/last night. :D Went to the Twilight Supper Market with Fi, [livejournal.com profile] maiaki, [livejournal.com profile] surealistic_des, and Mel. It was a lot smaller than expected but had some of the best empanadas I've ever eaten so it was worth it. We also had cake which was a bonus. :) The weather has been really warm and pleasant so being a Friday night and nearing only 9pm when we were done at the market, we decided to head down to the beach. By the time we got down to St. Kilda beach there was a lightning storm going on the horizon and it was so pretty. Watched that for an hour before we realised the storm had made to it where we were so we started heading back to the car. Lol if only we had started walking back 10mins earlier. Made it halfway before rain came down in sheets so we took shelter under the awning of a public toilet. Despite getting thoroughly drenched (well I did, mostly cuz I couldn't run in my flipflops), I had heaps of fun. It wasn't cold or anything, just wet. The lightning was amazing. <3 I hope I don't get sick though...

♥ Things are being finalised and I will be booking flights to Japan this Sunday for January. Will be going with [livejournal.com profile] breakfast_kiss and will be meeting [livejournal.com profile] cierra_james & [livejournal.com profile] lveaddkt there. Not to mention Fi and 4 of her friends. I'm very excited.

♥ Ahh fallen behind again with everyone's entries. Not to mention fandom. Really need to cut down on what I read on my flist. Will try to catch up on this weekend, I hope. Also, [livejournal.com profile] amakoi has reminded me that I will need to post a Christmas Card announcement soon. I'm really looking forward to making up for last years lack of cards. They'll even be handmade this year. Got tons of ideas and have actually already started a few. Haha omg one of the very few rare times where I don't do things last minute.

♥ Oh! I just realised I haven't mentioned here that I've got a job! Only a Chrissie casual possie but I'm rapt! I need the extra income for some extra spending money for Japan, especially after plans changed and I need to expand my budget a bit. (Domestic flights there are so expensive :S)

♥ As I said, I'm very behind on fandom. Have seen none of this season's dramas yet. Does anyone have suggestions? I don't know what to try first. The only thing I've seen is K8's new PV, which freaked the hell out of me; and Pi's new PV. Which I LOVE. IT'S SO FRIKKEN PRETTY. Even being so detached to fandom lately, watching that made me go doki-doki. Pi's so gorgeous. LOVE the parts where he's in the white shirt. LOVE how it was filmed in New York. I don't know what I was squealing about more at one point: Pi or NY. It was like: 'OMG Pi's so pretty! OMG Grand Central!' Haha yeah, been on a US high lately. Wanna go to the States so badly.

- Ok things getting way long and if it gets any longer, I'll have to cut it, though I'm not sure where. Will leave it at that. Oh, I also decided to f-lock my RL entries which have semi-private info... but not sure what the differentiating line is. So I will randomly lock when I feel like it I think. xD Last thing: will also be doing NaBloPoMo this year. Expect the flood in November. Good luck to anyone doing NaNoWriMo.

♥ I'm back! Back, back, back, back! My huge blog slump has been given a huge kick in the backside and shoved kicking and screaming into a dark recess somewhere. Fresh starts all around. I've put in a new layout [[livejournal.com profile] autumnjaide] as a new beginning, even though I haven't had the time/inspiration to do any overrides or a header yet.

♥ So my blog has a new image, and so do I! I got my hair cut & coloured over the weekend and am now sporting a new look. After having long hair for most of my life, I decided to chop off my locks. If anyone is interested in seeing: me with long hair at lveaddkt's sis' 21st party on Friday" and then me with the shorter cut I got on Sunday. I haven't had short hair since I was at least 15. It feels strange, but I like it.

♥ This will be a short post, but a couple of things in the coming future/to-do list:
→ my sales post. I shall be selling about 90% of my JE fandom stuff including CDs, concert goods, calendars, magazines. I have not left fandom, but I am no longer as zealous as I was, and am in need of the funds. The post will open to my flist first, before going public.
→ a new header, hopefully. I don't have any idea what I would want on my header atm though so I'm not sure that will be up quickly.
→ fix tags/cull communities. They're annoying me.

♥ I'm thinking of f-locking, if not all, then at least a bigger part of my journal. This journal will change drastically from now on, and I wanted to figure out how to go about it. I had originally thought to start a brand new journal altogether, but found that I was still too attached to this one. I will largely have more RL related posts as well as some ideas for photography, and crafty/inspiration posts. Fandom posts will be rare but won't disappear completely hopefully. I still love my boys. Should I f-lock I wonder? Any ideas, guys?

♥ I'm so sorry I've been MIA for so long. I -am- back now, so entries you guys post from now I will see/read AND comment on. :D I've missed everyone! ♥
autumnjaide: (Default)
It's currently REALLY windy and I can hear things getting blown around outside. Majorly scary. I hope there isn't too much damage, it's Hard Waste collection next week so there's tons of stuff lying out on nature strips.

This will probably be my last entry for a while. I'm having trouble setting up internet at the new place. Apparently it's a pretty new area so there aren't any cable lines up there, so I can't get cable or ADSL2+. I have to settle with ADSL. Not sure what the speeds like but I have no choice. I'm looking at plans with different companies and will probably have it set up in about 2 weeks or so. So unfortunately, I can't start Project 365 no matter how much I want to. I may take a photo a day anyway, but I won't have any way to post them. The net here at the old house will be disconnected on Monday. I'm downloading like crazy to use up my bandwidth, and to help me pass boredom at the new place. :)

So this is my last night here at this house. It's been a good 12 years and I'll definitely miss it. It may take awhile for me to get used to the new place. But I plan to make this move a beginning of many things. So here's to brand new beginnings.

I'll catch you guys when I get the net up and running at the new place! Take care. ♥
achey

Not much coherency so a bunch of random thoughts. :3

→ 4 days to go and barely a dint made in packing! Our family; the procrastinators. xD

→ I just realised that my paid account expires today. Haha I totally wasted it, I spent most of the paid period on hiatus. Oh well, I will renew when I can. Very low on cash lately.

→ I painted my feature wall at the new house! No photos but it's blue and turned out a lot brighter than I expected. I'm planning on decorating it somehow. Will show pics when that gets done.

→ I have my room all planned out. Can't wait to put it altogether! I'm getting a vanity table made to measure because I wanted something specific, and I either couldn't find what I wanted in stores or it was too expensive. Weird that made-to-measure ends up cheaper.

→ Only thing I still don't know what to do about is my internal window. Gyaaa.

→ I changed my mind and will be taking on Project 365 earlier. Next week to be exact. This move is gonna be the start of a new life for me with lots of changes that I'm putting forth. So I decided I wanted to document from the beginning of this new life. Therefore, Project 365 will start on Monday 17th August. I'm actually not gonna do the project here, but I will definitely link.

→ Loving everything about Buzzer Beat. ♥ Riko x Naoki are just gorgeous. I'd also like a friend like Mai. Totally cute. <3

→ Also, win a year's worth of gorgeous stationery! Sooo pretty! This is gonna kick-start my dormant obsession with stationery again. ♥

Saw my new house for the first time today! I'm very excited. It's lovely and I quite like it. Had you asked me a couple of months ago, I probably would've picked it apart but I'm focusing on all the positive stuff and what can be done to help/improve aspects rather than complain. It goes for a more pleasant frame of mind. ♥

The house sits on a hill and is the first house on the block on a no through road street. Which makes for some pretty limited parking. The house is about 7-8 years old but it look quite new inside with relatively new carpet and tiled floorings. The outside of the house was originally white but due to weather, it's quite dirty. I asked mum if there was anyway we could clean it, and she mentioned spraying, but I think that's a bit of a waste on something not too important. The neighbourhood is nice, though I feel out of place as we're surrounded by HUGE houses of 2-3 stories. It's very quite and peaceful but can seem a little -too- quiet and just downright eerie. Our backyard opens to open land which the Army Defence Base owns. The river is only a block away. It's very promising for making future memories. :)

small showcase of my fav bits of the house, with photos! :) )

Still tons of stuff to do, the house needs quite a bit of work, so it's gonna be a busy fortnight. One other thing before I go, I decided that I shall be taking on Project 365 this coming January. I know it's still really early, but I think I'd rather start at the beginning of the year for that particular project. But I shall do a test drive in a certain month something later this year. :D
autumnjaide: (※ {戸田恵梨香} : tee)
♥ Hiya guys! I'm back~

Hopefully this time round I'll be around steadily and without tons of hiatuses. :) As I said I would, I have a new layout ([livejournal.com profile] autumnjaide). I don't have the time to make a new header yet but will do so once I've settled into the new house. I've also taken down the old profile for revamping and have put a placeholder banner there until I can get a new one coded. :)

♥ Malaysia was awesome. Felt like the longest 2 weeks of my life though. xD After the 2nd day, we had done so much, it begun to feel like we'd already been there for a week. I really really enjoyed it. The trip encompassed a lot of firsts for me so means a bit. Only downer was that my camera pretty much died mid-trip (I've been meaning to get it fixed since Hong Kong but... well, procrastination.) but Fi made up for the photo taking. I will be grabbing both Fi's and [livejournal.com profile] maiaki's photos off Fi this coming week and I plan on writing up a diary-like entry about Malaysia as sort of a milestone thingy. If that makes any sense whatsoever. I know it's really late but I do have Hong Kong photos uploaded too so I shall post those as well. So more on the Malay trip in coming posts.

♥ I'm currently in full blown packing for the big move. Mum's set the date for the 16th so we're set to move in 2 weeks. The thing is, I -still- haven't seen what the house looks like yet. o.O I'm so beyond tripped out by that fact, I don't even know what to think. Mum's informed us that the previous owners have finished moving out and cleaning the house this week and she'll be picking up the keys tomorrow. So that means I shall finally get to see the house in its entirety. Still strange though, seeing the house for the first time, then moving in 2 weeks later.

I packed my 5 shelves of magazines today. They fit into 4 boxes, with the largest containing 111 of them. Proving how bright I am, I tried to pick up said box. I nearly broke my back. I think I've bruised -something-. Mum has helped me plaster it in heat patches. That box now holds a "VERY HEAVY!! 2 person pick-up!" note on it. xD So that's my fail for the day. I think that also shows me how much I'm gonna hurt AFTER moving day. Very apprehensive now. :S

Probably more from me tomorrow, seeing how I'm going to see the house. :) Also in the coming week: more packing, furniture shopping, sentimental ramblings, and a small post on catching up with fandom.

10th attempt to write up a post in the last 2 weeks. I'm sleepy and tired and just downright not functioning, so the post will just be dot points.

Was meant to come off hiatus earlier this month, but it didn't happen and now I'm leaving for Malaysia tomorrow night, so further prolonged hiatus. I will try to post when I can from Malaysia and will after, but posts will be sparse even after I return since I will be moving house as well.

Having said that, I want to say that once I'm back on LJ, my journal will get a revamp. I've faded quite a bit from the JE fandom in recent months, and while I'll never leave it, my views of it have changed a lot, and I'm not as -fangirly- about it anymore. Still slightly, just not as much. My journal will change from a fandom based one to one thats more mixed: personal, photography, hobby, various fandoms. I have a few ideas atm. Feel free to defriend me if you think that's not what you'd like to see. No hard feelings.

I apologise to everyone whose comments I have not gotten back to. So very very sorry. I don't even have an excuse except laziness after bandwidth reset. [livejournal.com profile] himehikari: So sorry I couldn't get back to you, but I'd love to meet up if you have the time. Though, I found out that we're only in KL on the weekend (18th & 19th) and then again on the 26th. We're traveling out of KL on all the other days. If you're free, let me know, and I shall PM/email my mobile number and see if we can organise something.

More than counting down for Malaysia, I'm counting down to Harry Potter. Will be catching it in the Genting Highlands, the 2nd day we're in Malaysia. Can't wait. ♥

Hope everyone is doing well, I miss you guys and hope to talk to you all again properly after my trip. Gonna go conk out now, so many things still to do tomorrow.
autumnjaide: (※ {小山慶一郎・錦戸亮} : peace&smiles)
NEGATIVE!

I'm SO relieved. Like this huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I tested negative for Swine AND Avian flu. xD Lol I didn't even know they tested me for that. So I'm just loaded down with the normal seasonal flu. What bad timing for that though, and how coincidental that a bunch of people I know got sick at the exact same time. :S I'm feeling a lot better now (well enough for short trips out of the house, I was going a little crazy in quarantine) but my cough has not gotten better. I managed to finish a bottle of the strongest over-the-counter cough medicine in a week with not much improvement and much loss of sleep so I had the doc prescribe me something stronger. He's given me codeine. Phwoar gonna be out like a light tonight.

Anyways, thank you SO much for everyone's support and wonderful wishes and positive thoughts, you guys really helped me through this. So much love guys. ♥

And from this post, I shall fall back into my (semi) hiatus. I'm expecting things to get a little busy once I get better. I'm gonna have Centrelink commitments, then Malaysia in July (don't worry, I shall blog about that), and then I'm moving house. I will most likely be posting lots between Malaysia and moving house cuz I want to throw decorating ideas etc around plus will have some sale posts to sell off mags/manga/cds/con goods etc.

Estimated end of hiatus: End of June. :D See you guys then. Love you all. ♥

Lol I can't stop thinking "CUTE!!" when watching the preview to NEWS' Koi no ABO PV. Can't wait til the PV is released. The dance moves make me XD ♥ Love 'em.
ETA: Just listened to the full Koi no ABO rip from Recommen and I wasn't paying much attention until I suddenly went O.O OMFG TEGOSHI! Such a voice. <3 It's a catchy song. Despite the weird subject. ^^;

Woke to huge claps of thunder and lightning and torrential rain this morning. Haven't had such a big thunderstorm in Melbourne in ages. Feeling like Melbourne getting even more out of whack. First earthquakes now torrential thunderstorms? Strange. I'm not complaining bout the storms though, just wondering. We need all the rain we can get and I love watching storms.

*sighs* Off to do my mountain load of chores before meeting [livejournal.com profile] maiaki, [livejournal.com profile] lveaddkt and [livejournal.com profile] surealistic_des in the city for tea.

New KAT-TUN album and new NEWS single. Why do I only feel very -poor-?! I'm not very excited about them for some reason. I'll probably eventually get the KT album when I have money, but I decided that I would stop buying singles. The only thing about this release that has me feeling strongly over is the fact that the NEWS single will come with a DVD with some performances at Tokyo Dome. Does that mean that they won't release a Diamond Party DVD?! If that's true, I'm totally shattered. I was REALLY looking forward to seeing that con on DVD. D: In any case, I can't order either right now. It'd cost me about $95 for the two and I really just can't spare that money right now. ;_;

Yesterday [livejournal.com profile] asagao_blossoms and I made okonomiyaki for tea. She had to make it today for her Home Eco class so we decided to trial run it for dinner last night. It was more like I helped her with getting ingredients and stuff, and she did the actual cooking while I tried to do my assignments. xD To our surprise, it turned out perfect on the very first go! It was yummy and tasted exactly like what it would at a restaurant. :D I was still feeling a little off so I didn't have that much, but it was still good.
photos! )
We then picked up Fi dropped into Max Brenner's so I could return D's sunnies which he left in my car a week go. The girls ate, but I was feeling too sick to, so I just had some hot tea.
photos again. xD )

► Urgh my stomach won't stop hurting. I was out totally out of commission Thursday night then all day Friday with food poisoning. And now I'm still getting stomach pains, although it's not as bad as on Thu/Fri and I'm no longer feeling like I need to throw up but can't. It's also been really warm the last couple of days (cause of my food poisoning: a donut with custard in it which must've been out in the heat too long) and now my room is like an oven. Feel a bit better now after taking some painkillers.

► I cut my hair today. I've had super long hair for ages now and I think the last time I cut my hair this short (actually I think it was shorter) was back in Year 10. Lol yes, aaaaaages ago. My hairs been pretty abused by me in the last year: 2 curl perms, a colour, then a straightening perm, and then I dyed it again just a couple of days ago. The bottom parts were just like hay. I had already trimmed about 5 inches off it but there was still more so I needed to get rid of it. Now it's much shorter but a lot lighter and -much- healthier. I love it, especially the healthy part. :D I managed to take a before and after but the photos didn't turn out too good.
crappy photos anyway )

So yeah shorter hair now! And it's a chocolate brown too. First time I've had brown hair, ever. It's much more noticable in the sun though. It just looks black or a -very- dark brown inside. xD

► Haven't checked flist in days.. may take longer. I'm sorry. D: But I have to go change now, cuz [livejournal.com profile] lveaddkt will be here soon to haul me off to the beach. I'm not too thrilled, but I'll do nearly anything to get out of my stifling room. I can have stomach pains at the beach, at least that will be slightly more comfortable than having them here in my house. >.<;

Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] aikyuu! ♥ Happy belated Birthday wishes to [livejournal.com profile] brandedwhite, [livejournal.com profile] kirei_kisetsu and [livejournal.com profile] darkeyedwolf! Hope you guys had awesome days. ♥

*Had this all written up yesterday but forgot to post it. ^^;

Aiyaa it's been so many days since I've blogged, mainly cuz either nothing happens are everything happens all at once. ^^; I'm sorry for being such a horrible LJ friend. The last couple of days has been quite busy. So to recap.

fri-sun - red wings, 21st bday and max brenners )

monday - ditching, crazy teen girls and zac efron in the flesh )

Oh dear, this ended up being so long. So sorry for ranting so much. Kudos to any who made it this far! :D Also, photos and vid will be added as soon as I get them. eta: up now!

I had a strange dream this morning of me going around the neighbourhood (it was -mine- in the dream sense, but it looked nothing like my real one) putting out spot fires with a strange hose thing that wasn't attacked to anything but still spout out water. Felt so...strange when I woke up. I think this may have been affected by the sms I got yesterday from the Victorian Police warning about high temperatures and fire warning then waking up to the sound of super strong winds knocking things down (like an old gate of ours was knocked right off it's hinges).

Also received a letter from VU today. Finally found out what the decision from last month's progress meeting was. They're allowing me to stay enrolled (surprised me) if I switch to part time, so 2 units this semester until my scores (read: motivation) goes up. So instead of withdrawing totally from uni (which was what I was planning to do) I now have the option to take 2 classes while working (still job hunting) or defer for the semester. I think I may take 2 jap classes to tide me till mid-year when I'm gonna try for Monash again. I have nothing to lose really and it may help with the transfer. Going into enrol tomorrow. Wish they'd let me know earlier seeing VU has already been back 2 weeks now. >.<; Eta: And it's gonna cost me $120 for my enrolment to be reinstated. Now I'm not so sure about it.

Mum made me a huge batch of 'Sai Mai Lo' (西米露), or Sago/Tapioca pudding(?) which is a Chinese sort of dessert which I love. We had stacks of fruit so she made use of them. It's a nice cool pick-me-up for such a horrid, overcast, stifling dry day. Right, off to dinner now. Hope everyone's well. ♥

Paid a visit to [livejournal.com profile] lveaddkt yesterday evening and did a good fangirling session with her (and [livejournal.com profile] breakfast_kiss before she had to leave for a 21st). I guess it's hard to stay in a fandom when you don't interact with other people, so hence the drifting sort of feeling.

I'm currently not feeling quite well, which I think I may have brought on myself. I drove to Ness' with all the windows open cuz the weather was nice, but I also did it again when I went home at night and the weather had turned cold. My hair was wet too so I may have caught a head cold. Barely slept last night and woke after about an hours sleep feeling like I would throw up. Originally had badminton planned with the cousins but had to cancel. Mozzied around then tried to watch stuff I'd downloaded but fell asleep. Caught a couple of hours of sleep and now I feel a bit better.

Left a bunch of stuff to download and managed to watch a couple of the things. Thoughts:
→ Matsujun & Sho's bakakkoi challenge was awesome. I loved it so much. I have yet to watch the Beatbox TV yet though. ^^
→ Nagase's MTV Unplugged was amazing. I really loved the music and arrangements, it was just beautiful to watch. Might rip the songs to put on my ipod.
→ I don't understand why JE has been releasing PVs in short versions, really. Just release the full PV already. >.<; That said, I'm really loving ARASHI's Believe PV and want to see the full version soon. :) The waterwalls are so cool! XD
→ The lie detector test on CTKT97 was loads of fun. :D Everyone wants to be in Arashi. Haha.
→ Will be watching these dramas soon: Mei-chan no Shitsuji, RESCUE, Uta no Onii-san, Kiina, VOICE, Love Shuffle, Kami no Shizuku (though I watched the first ep, and it was quite boring D:).

Thank you [livejournal.com profile] nozomi_chan! I got your card, but I totally forgot about it. Sorry. It's such a gorgeous little card, I love it so much. And wonderful to come home to an empty house to find I have mail. :)♥

I've set a record to my bandwidth use. It's the 16th and I'm already capped. *sighs* I'm beyond help, I am. Currently at Fi's leeching bandwith with permission.

Not much to write about except, unfortunately for me, I was not accepted into Monash this semester. Disappointed but sort of expected. Feel quite at a loss though. So I'm currently looking for work to raise some cash. And I'm determined to get in, no matter how long it takes. I will try again next semester. Once I find a job, I'll probably join [livejournal.com profile] lveaddkt at the Jap school in the city to keep up my Jap studies.

Not much else to talk about so I shall fill up this post with memes. I remember seeing my name being tagged on a couple of memes while I was skimming through LJ a couple of weeks ago but I can't remember who it was who tagged me. I found a few but I may have missed some, if you had tagged me, let me know k! :)
memes! )

Happy Valentine's Day~!
Also, belated Birthday wishes go out to [livejournal.com profile] xswindz, [livejournal.com profile] mainichi_muri and [livejournal.com profile] insane_desire. Hope you guys had tons of fun and love on your special day.

Finally, two weeks after I'm back in Oz, I've managed to get myself together and write up a post. But I'm back and with a vengence! It's taken me two days but I have totally revamped my LJ. With the exception of my LJ header, I've changed my layout ([livejournal.com profile] autumnjaide), redone my usericons and actually filled in my profile (for the first time in my 2.5 year LJ history ). Profile header was a pressie from [livejournal.com profile] kirei_kisetsu, thanks Belle! Also, in a fit of frustration I bought 6 months of paid time. There's a few kinks I can't seem to work out with my layout but I've given up trying.

My trip was great, I just love travelling so much. I still haven't gotten [livejournal.com profile] asagao_blossoms photos off her yet, but she's coming over tomorrow so I shall probably up them in a couple of days or so. Chinese New Year in Hong Kong just has so much atmosphere, it was great. We went to the CNY fair at Victoria Gardens and it was so nuts, met some awesome nice people too. I'll probably write a proper writeup of the trip (once I figure out how I want to organise stuff, I'm thinking of making a comm, any ideas people?). Flew home with [livejournal.com profile] asagao_blossoms while the rest of the family flew to Vietnam for 10 days. And just my luck, I come back smack in the middle of the worst heat wave Melb's ever seen. Landed at 7.30am and the captain announces that ground temperature was already 31C (88F). Melbourne had 4 consecutive days of 43C (110F) days and an entire week of nothing below 30 which then peaked at 46C (115F). I nearly died, I hate hot weather with a vengence.

I'm dead beat so I'm off to bed. Sorry for such a content lacking post. This is more to say "I'm alive and back on LJ" more than anything. I will slowly (read: excruciatingly painfully) go back and try to reply/comment. But bear with me people, there's a lot. Hope everyone is doing well. ♥

Greetings from Hong Kong! I have hijacked my rellies computer (which uses his huge ass LCD TV screen as a monitor so I have absolutely no privacy and everyone in the house is staring at me as I type this) to send out my love to you guys on my flist. :D

Technically I've only had 2 days in Hong Kong even though I've been away from Australia for 7 days. We spent a couple of days in Guangzhou and ZhuHai and Macau. We've done some shopping and an insane amount of walking. I feel like my feet are no longer attached to my body. We're set to have a huge family dinner the day before Chinese New Year's day. I love the food here. So yummy and so majorly cheap. I've bought nearly everything I set out to buy here. I have a new phone (OMFG I HAVE A BRAND NEW PRETTY RED SOFTBANK PHONE, SO HAPPY XD), some beauty products which I couldn't get in Oz, an iPod charger and a majorly cheap 32Gig USB, and some clothes. :) All I need now is a cover for my iPod and I'm set. This was meant to be more of a food trip anyway.

We're slated the 27th for Disneyland, once the rest of the family leave for Vietnam on the 26th. Then we return home on the night of the 28th. I wish I could up photos but this comp doesn't have a card reader and I don't have my camera's cord. So photos will have to wait til I get home. We haven't got as many as I expected though, since I keep either forgetting to take them, or to bring my camera. >.<;

Off to bed now and to what will definitely be another day of jam packed walking. Hope everyone is keeping well. Lots of love, I'll get back to comments when I get home, since I doubt I'll get much of another chance. ♥ ♥ ♥

How is my lovely flisters doing? :) ♥ Has 2009 been good to everyone? I hope everyone had a good Xmas and New Years.

I started off 2009 -really- smashed for the first (and probably last) time of my life. It was so much pain I want to wipe the memory from my head. xD I've really come to realise that I really don't like alcohol. I just don't see the point. I could probably get higher naturally without the aid of alcohol. Plus it tastes bad. Haha.

Did a full rearranging of my room too. My room is so much more spacious now that you can actually see my wall. One bookcase died in the process though. Me being lazy, did not remove all the contents of my bookcases and just proceeded to push them across the room. Halfway there on my 2nd one (the one holding my gazillion of magazines), after an almightly crack, my entire bookcase collapsed across my room. Here is what the disaster looked like. I am now down to 2 cases from 3 so it feels like I have even -more- space. Which is good, in my tiny room. :D I've now moved all my mags to my sturdier cube unit case. :)

So just announcing, that I'm off to Hong Kong tomorrow and will be back at the end of the month. So I shall officially come off hiatus in February. I'll catch you guys then! Take care~ ♥
