♥ 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! ♥

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

... and I can't be bothered redoing it so a short RL post instead. >.<;

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 [ 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 [ 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. >.<;

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~ ♥

[ profile] ihearyourtears: Thank you for the cute Christmas graphic, Chung! It totally brightened up my day. :)
[ profile] kirei_kisetsu: Thank you for the profile header! It's gorgeous. I shall implement it when I get back. <33
[ profile] mparf & [ profile] lveaddkt: Have a wonderful trip to Japan! I shall see you guys in March (you too, [ profile] surealistic_des!). Bring me back a bishie. xD

Just a random photo post that I wanted to get out of my system since I was uploading. Very random, and not very interesting. XD

Best photo I've taken in awhile.
Docklands at dusk
Taken from the car on the way home from St Kilda market. It was pretty so I just sorta stuck my arm towards it (I was on the opposite side of the car) and pressed the button. It turned out so pretty. :D

more not-so-pretty ones )

And a couple of more things before I go sleep.
- for those who wanted to see my crappy hair not-so-newly permed hair. (Sorry you can't reaally see it properly. Couldn't fit all my super long hair in the frame, tried to tilt the laptop but that ended badly. xD I've also actually cut my fringe since this photo. Haha)
- I've updated that post-JLPT post with promised photos of yummy lunch.
- Shitshitshitshitshitshitshiiiiiiiiiiitttt
autumnjaide: (※ {加藤成亮} : smile lollipop)
Currently at [ profile] lveaddkt's. XDD

The rules are that for 8 days you have to post something that made you happy that day.

♥ FINISHING THE JLPT! It was so long and boring and omg, but we got through it and IT'S OVEEEEER! SO FRIKKEN HAPPY PEOPLE! I think we did okay too. Bonus. :D

heheh I'm a little high at the moment.

♥ After the JLPT, [ profile] lveaddkt, [ profile] cierra_james and I grabbed late lunch/early dinner and we had yummy jap then we had CAKE. Omfg it was soooo yummy. I has pictures but I can't upload them here at Ness' so I shall edit this post when I upload them at home.

♥ Putting up and decorating Ness' Christmas tree. I decided that I wouldn't put up my tree this year cuz it's not worth the trouble (Me: Mum, I'm not putting up a tree this year. Mum: ... We have a tree?! Me: ....YES!) so I helped with Ness'. I got really high and started putting Xmas decorations on myself and turned into a Christmas tree myself. I shall up a photo of that too. XD

Edit: now with photos! :D )

Overview of the weekend, with photos. )

KAT-TUN's Queen of Pirates Concert DVD released New Years Day. I'm a little glad that there's no limited edition, cuz that would mean I would have to fork out money I don't have right now to pre-order it. But without a limited edition I can order it when I -do- have the money. *sighs* I've been looking forward to this, but for some reason.. I'm not as excited for it as I should be. I wonder why. D: Okay, now that [ profile] lveaddkt has flailed at me a bit more, I'm a little more excited for it. xD
Code Blue SP airing date to be January 10th. :D Okay I think it's just how I'm feeling today but I know I should be excited for this but I'm not right now. Maybe it will hit me later.
JLPT Level 3 test in T-minus 12 days. And I haven't done a single spot of study. I am so screwed.

Ok, this post has taken me about 6 hours on and off to code, upload and write and I'm more than fed up with it. I have a mild cold (from Saturday's escapades) plus I think I'm PMSing so I'm getting irrated a lot easier. I'm off to watch some Grey's Anatomy or something which I just stole of Fi. Will get back to comments and entries later. <3

Gyaa feeling horrible. The heat isn't helping at all. Here I was thinking I'm finally getting better from my last bout of sickness, a new one hits. Gyaaaa..

Was meant to go grocery shopping with mum today but didn't cause I felt so crap. Tried to continue on the card making but only got frustrated that things weren't turning out. I think I've complicated things a little too much. the mess that is my card making area )

Was gonna post my Christmas wishlist but I'm feeling too crappy to think. Gonna go dose up on meds then go to sleep. I'll get back to comments tomorrow.

★ Eeeeeeeeeee Previews of color! I'm really liking this album! I'm just beyond happy that Snow Express and Towairo no Koi is being released. All the songs are really NEWS sounding, but there's a range of different sounds as well. Although the previews are so short I've really taken to Ryo's and Pi's solos. (Lol, I am totally amused by all the different interpretations of Pi's MOLA.) Murarisuto made me burst out laughing, it's so CUTE. Only KoyaShige can sing lyrics asking girls to show them body parts so damn cutely. Kesenai sounds really cool, and I can't wait to hear the full version. Minna ga Iru Sekai.. reminds me a little of the chorus of Change the World, but that may just be me. I like Forever, FLY AGAIN & STARDUST too. This album just sounds all around catchy. So happy. No disappointment from me. Now I just gotta -wait- for the album to be released.

★ Congrats on Nakamaru's first lead role! Am I the only one finding it adorable that Maru and Massu are getting to work together? They always talk about hanging out together, I want to see what they're like on screen together. :) Here's some more info on RESCUE~特別高度救助隊. Scheduled to air in January, the winter drama season. :)

★ Omg, there was another chicken roaming around today. Yesterday's rooster was no where to be found, but a smaller more petite chook was strolling around our lawn today. It seems like really like hiding behind a big bush of ours. I didn't get close enough to take a photo though, afraid I would panic it and it might've flown out at me. >.<; Scratch that! Mum just came back from her walk and told me it had come out and into the neighbours garden. So I have photos! xD
