OH MY GOD IT'S

A REAL ENTRY.

Wow I haven't done one of these since like... January. HOW ABOUT SOMETHING um. Japan is still Japan. I go home in a little over a month now, but it doesn't really feel real. As homesick as I am, I know the few things I like about being here, I'm going to really miss. And I'll probably go through some weird reverse culture shock when I get back. Hopefully I haven't turned into so much of a recluse that I can't function in groups anymore when I get back, haah. Being around more than 3-4 people feels so stressful.

School stuff is okay. My classes are all really boring and I'm really starting to hate my Japanese class. Like, our last presentation, I was the only person who was able to read the whole thing without staring at my script reading word for word, or talking like I'm announcing for horse races or something like this one girl (seriously, she sounds like she's an auctioneer or something when she talks Japanese, it's so annoying to listen to) AND YET because my little paper that people were supposed to follow along to wasn't in the exact same format as everyone else, I got scolded in front of the class.

UHM I THOUGHT WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE LEARNING THE LANGUAGE HERE, WHO CARES IF I DIDN'T SEPARATE AND TITLE EVERY SINGLE LITTLE THING...? The papers were bullshit anyway; every student had to print 22 copies, and some had more than one page! Those poor trees...

Outside of school... lol I don't do anything. I have to be really careful with money, since I'd like to have some left over after I get back for until school starts again. If I go anywhere, I spend money, so... :'D I think I'll just be a super tourist for the last week I'm here to make up for it, and go see everything one last time.

And on a little note healthwise... eh. I keep getting sick here, but I think that's more because of mental stress than actually being sick. This past week I've been having anxiety issues that make my heart feel funny and make it hard to breathe whenever I lay down, and that's been a lot of fun... I think I need to take a break from things for awhile, but I'm not sure where to take a break or how.

And of course, RP wise, which is like... most of my life these days. I am a very exciting person.

Honestly, I feel like I need to take a break from Luceti for a bit. Not the drop-kind of break, but like... big hiatus break. And maybe a drop for the character I've been struggling with (sob, Tanuma). The only thing holding him in place now is knowing that all my threads are going to be sad for awhile if I only stick with Ion; since I've been so horrible to him, he's pretty much just a ball of sad right now. And honestly, there's a part of me that kind of wants to hold off on working to make things better for him when I know next month will have some sad plots too.

Which I don't mind! But... I need a happy outlet when I'm over here in a bad mood all the time too. :'D

And that's why I'm finally taking the jump and doing this.

I've been wanting to get back into Smash for like... ever. I always waffled over it because of various reasons and things coming up...

But man, I've totally fallen in love with the game Ib. I loved Yume Nikki and .flow, but the one thing I always wanted to see was a storyline version of that kind of gameplay. Of just... creepy and unsettling things in a horror setting. And since I started playing not expecting to get SUDDENLY PARTY MEMBER, I think that made me love Garry even more. :'D And, aside from the fact that Ib as a canon wouldn't be appable in Luceti, I think I'd like him in a setting like Smash more. I'm kind of worried I might be stepping on someone's toes, but... I didn't see any other reserves or apps up, so I think it's okay... we'll see...

...anyway I should sleep now, gotta be up in 6 hours. /flies

UNRELATED TO EVERYTHING BUT isn't this icon prettyyyyy~?

I think I'm doing good in school right now. I think. One of my classes, I won't really know until after the midterm. I'm doing pretty damn well in astronomy, even though I either skip or fall asleep in lectures every time. Japanese is going good too, but I should practice speaking more. I still stumble over my words way too much. I know I already do that enough when trying to speak English and that's my native language. :|;; In my Modern Japan class, I just have to keep up with the readings and I'll be fine. I also take some seriously bad ass notes in that class, ngl.

I finally have work this weekend! I haven't had worked in over a month. It's ridiculous. I'm going to go back and they'll be like "WHO ARE YOU AGAIN...?" At least I wasn't laid off after the holidays... and this means I get paid in two weeks! Although as nice as it is having this job, I already know I'll be looking for an alternative come the summer. I may have my bus pass while attending school, but in the summer I have to pay to ride every time, and they keep raising the cost... it'll be $5 to get to work and back everyday. Hopefully I can find something in Covington so I can just walk...

I still have to do taxes and file the FAFSA... and I still haven't heard back from the IPE office about studying abroad. Is it bad that a small part of me hopes I don't get it just so I don't have to go through the horrors of getting a student visa and applying for extra aid and scrambling to find money for food while I'm over there...? Why so expensive, Japaaaan... D:

But my daily life is boring. Let's move on to why I really posted this! So I heard there was this meme where you chose like 15 characters from different fandoms who were your favorite or something...


THIS IS TOTES A CUT WITH PICTURES UNDER IT )
randomsnarfle: (That sounds super special awesome!)
HEY GUYS remember that emo journal yesterday?

FORGET IT. I AM NOW A HAPPY becaaause I turned in all the stuff I needed for studying abroad next year~!

[INSERT HAPPY DANCE OF SOME SORT HERE]

Which also means about 50% of my stress is GONE. I still have to wait until January to hear about being accepted. Honestly, accepted or not, I'm happy to know I made the effort. I figure I'll be living in Japan at some point anyway, whether I get a permanent job as a translator there or just work a few years as an ALT and/or with the JET program. But if I am accepted, that would be awesome because FUCK YEAH FOREIGN COUNTRY.

Plus, the program costs aren't much more than the costs of attending UW right now. Since it's a direct exchange, tuition at the home university covers tuition there. And since I'm covered by financial aid, not much to worry about! (Unless my aid changes next year sob.) My main issue will probably be getting approved for a student visa and all that lovely stuff, BUT those are hurdles I'll meet as I get to them! And then a new journal tag was born. Right now, it's apply-for-a-billion-scholarships time!

Oh wait, I lied, right now it's MEME TIME. Also I wish I could list more than 5 people because I such a dork when it comes to gushing over how much I love everybodyyyy. IF YOU ARE ON MY F-LIST YOU ARE ON THIS LIST IN SPIRIT. Even if we just met! Because everyone is awesome. <3
