Haha.. yay_box introduced this little gem on her LJ earlier today. It's so fun!
BEFORE I START I JUST WANT TO SAY.. my thoughts on the whole thing where people are complaining about Arashi not getting enough rest, or that they are hogging the spotlight etc. How do I feel about this...? Honestly I think that they deserve the spotlight. They have worked very hard to be where they are today, and I don't think that other groups are being 'ignored' because of Arashi. Yes, I think that other groups are being ignored, but not because of Arashi. That's just stupid.
On the other topic, yes Arashi is working hard... they have lots of shows and movies and singles and albums and concert tours that they are doing... but I honestly believe that Johnny knows how to take care of his.. property as we can so lightly put it. Does Arashi seem tired sometimes? Yes. Does Arashi seem unhappy? No. I do not feel that Johnny is making them work so hard as to affect their wellbeing, their mental health, and their life. Hell, if that was happening.. we would be having the issues that are extremely prevalent in the K-pop world right now.. *coughSuperJuniorDBSKcough* If Johnny was treating his talent so painfully badly, don't you think that someone would have sued him for that already? J&A was created 33 years prior to SME.
Okay so.. that out of the way.. life lately has been... just ridonkulous. That's about the only way that I can describe it. Between going to work, and all the different gatherings that I have been going to, between birthday parties and going away parties..
It's just nutso *insert emoticon of nuts that I don't have*
I also feel kind of overwhelmed with the translation projects that I have... granted, I picked them.. ;; I shouldn't have picked so many. Oh well, at least I'm almost done with the one that's been giving me the biggest trouble.. *shakes fist at 世界一受けたい授業*
So... what have I been up to this week..?
( Let's find out! Bullet style~! )
And now we're here. And I'm exhausted. But I have translating to do, so I'm gonna do that ;
As another note -- I'm on pins and needles about the whole balloting thing. IS IT GOING TO WORK OUT OR NOT......???
