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

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 [personal profile] randomsnarfle, which now matches most of my other internet account (tumblr, plurk, twitter, etc) and that makes me happy. DELICIOUS CONSISTENCY...!

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

Hey guys! I know it's a little early to be thinking about that special holiday season, but I figure the earlier I get this up, the greater the chance of me actually following through this year. Yep, I'm talking about

~CHRISTMAS CARDS~

WANNA GET A COOL CHRISTMAS CARD FROM JAPAN? Just post your name and address here (comments are screened) and I'll send you something! Even if you think I might have your address, post it anyway since I'm a forgetful person. :'D The cards will probably contain lots of weird little drawings and doodles and maaaybe some kind of weird Japanese snack. 

PLUS IT WILL BE FULL OF LOVE FROM MY HEART. ಠ__ಠ Or something.

My goal is to send out like a million this year so LET'S DO THIS!!
