Hey guys! I am talking to you from DreamWidth. Isn't that awesome?
I am so in love with this website, I don't even. I'm not abandoning my personal LJ, so if you don't have one, I'll still see you all and stuff! All my entries will be cross-posted and I'll comment to replies in either place. I'll still check LJ for locked entries periodically too, soooo... yeah!
It's not like I used my personal journal very much to begin with, so. :'D Not really a big change, except anyone who is moving entirely to DW can follow me there! My journal is randomsnarfle
, which now matches most of my other internet account (tumblr, plurk, twitter, etc) and that makes me happy.
But seriously, this website just gives me the warm fuzzies. I've had a pretty shitty Christmas so far this year, so even little things like "Where has the website been all my life?" are really cheering me up. ;u;
ON AN UNRELATED NOTE because my mood has gotten better and I want to talk of happy things, I have decided my new goal in life is to collect every Tales of Series manga ever. I found the entire Tales of Destiny 2 series for 250 yen at Book-off, and two of the Vesperia manga. I'm not a huge gamer, so I don't see myself every really playing some of these, but I would like to be able to say I know the plot a little. |D PLUS good Japanese practice! In addition to those, I also have the first Graces F manga, the first three Symphonia manga, and the last 4 Abyss manga (which I bought all-brand new since they were re-released for the TOA 3DS remake).
I should go to Book-off more often... it's a much cheaper way to cheer myself up with retail therapy. :'D The more expensive way being stumbling upon your favorite Lolita brand at the exact moment they happen to be releasing their lucky pack... a-aha... I can't help myself okay. |D;; BUT I heard Meta's packs usually include full-shirred skirts, in addition to a blouse/cutsew/caridigan and an accessory. ~$150 for ~$350 worth of brand clothes? Yesssssssss. *A*
...at least I'll get my financial aid money soon? :'D lol it's actually not as big an issue as I'm making it out to be. Most of my purchases has been big, but far and few between. I've only actually gone clothes shopping (and bought something) once while I've been here, which... is pretty damn good for me. This on top of the scholarship that Osaka University gave me for being in the JShIP program (80000 yen a month until the program ends, which basically covers all my housing costs) means I really don't have too many money problems anymore. |D Which is nice, given how much hell UW and BoA put me through in the beginning. ಠ__ಠ
Anywaaay, I think that's all I got for now. I should write entries more often, lol... |D
