♥ 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 [[ 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! ♥

♥ 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 ([ 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 [ 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.

Happy Valentine's Day~!
Also, belated Birthday wishes go out to [ profile] xswindz, [ profile] mainichi_muri and [ 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 ([ 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 [ 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 [ 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 [ 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. ♥

TADAIMA my beautiful flist. I am officially back and will be blogging properly from this day onwards! And to show that I am serious this time, I come with a shiny new layout and icon revamp!
[ profile] autumnjaide [ profile] autumnjaide [ profile] autumnjaide

I am really no good at this, it took me an entire week to make and code and implement. I swear other people do it much easier and faster I'm sure. My forever under construction userinfo is next on the to tackle list.

I am done with uni for the semester. And now I am a woman on a mission to find a job. Semester doesn't start till the end of July so I plenty of time to work and replenish my non-existent savings. I have been hibernating since the end of semester. I didn't step outside of the house for a week. I marathoned Hana Kimi (purely cuz I had the urge), Code Geass Season 1 (because Fi told me to), along with all the usual J-variety shows/drama.

Which sounds really depressing so I ended up inviting my uni friends to go play badminton. Only [ profile] maiaki could make it. So I brought along the horde of cousins. Hope you had fun, [ profile] maiaki and thanks for coming all the way out! It felt good to play, I hadn't played in AGES and yeah, felt good to raise endorphin levels. (No, [ profile] surealistic_des, we were not catching dolphins .)

I watched the entirety of Touch Eco (the 13 hr live show Kanjani8 hosted) last night (I finished it at 4am). I know what's happening with the environment and all, but I had never seen any of these consequences and this show was a real eye opener. I can't understand how you can just dump stuff like cars, fridges, computers, tyres and chains in a forest. At MT FUJI. 300 TONNES. Just...I- I cry at what humans are capable of. And then in the middle they showed the news cast of the man that rampaged through Akiba stabbing people. Seven people dead because a man was tired of his life and had had enough of everything. Humans are a scary race.

Ok, sorry about the boring entry, it was just to tell everyone I'm back and I sorta ended up rambling. Hopefully I can update more regularly now that I don't have anything hanging over my head. There's a stack of memes I want to do and I wanted to post more photos. I'm sorry if I end up spamming your flists. Hope everyone is doing well.

ETA: Ok, so I just found out that my layout just does not work in IE. adgjahaljhgd!! Gyaa I'm sorry IE users. :X

I'm such a baka, I had Okaeri instead of Tadaima >.<;

Hellooooo everyone! Ok, so I'm happy to announce that I'm officially off my hiatus. How is everyone?

I'm expecting a call from Acer about my laptop in a few days so we'll see how that goes, but in the meantime I wanted to come off hiatus cuz it would probably help me get back on track. I've been really emo about life in general and especially uni lately, throw being sick on top of that and it's certainly not pleasant. Thanks to a looong talk with mum and Fi (my closest cousin) I'm working things out. I'm still not sure what to do about uni though.

Well onto less depressing things. I have good news and bad news. Bad news: I didn't get excepted into the Japanese uni exchange scholarship thingy. Good news: I have a chance to appeal because there is still one grant and I had good scores last year.
Even BETTER news: I'm still going Japan! Ok, so it's just for a week but I'm still super excited. I'm tagging along with my grandparents and Fi's family to their holiday in China for 3 weeks in December through January. Then when they fly home, me and Fi will fly to Japan for a week. It's my dream come true. I. am. so. excited. Also, I've always wanted to travel with Fi cuz we are so baka when we're together, it should be lots of fun.

There's so much that has happened in the fandom, of which I would fangirl over, except it's old news, so I'll spare everyone of having to go through that. So I figured I'd do a meme. I wanted to do the Guess the JE boy one everyone's been doing, but I thought that I doubt anyone really knows me well enough for that yet, seeing I've been on hiatus for so long. So here's an old meme:

Seven habits/quirks/facts )

Edit: Hands up any one who's as sad as I am that the last ep of Hana Kimi airs tonight? But anticipating it like mad? Ahh 2 hour special!

I realised that I don't really know a lot of you really well, so drop me a line, hope we can get to know one another more. ♥
