Heart bullet tiem~! 8D

 Had my last classes on Friday!!! LAST CLASSES. OMG. I AM DONE. WTF?????? What is going on I don't even.

 Last day also included:
  • Free pizza for lunch

  • Free food for dinner

  • Portfolio Day in which professionals came to look at artwork!

  • Snack carts with... you guessed it.. free food!

My school really tries to spoil us in the last couple weeks. Anyway, the portfolio day went alright. I had a few people who genuinely seemed interested in using my work, and they said they would contact me. So that's exciting. I also had a few people who complimented my work, which was awesome as well. However I feel like since I've been through art school, I don't know how to take a compliment on my work anymore. I'm so used to people picking at every little thing to suggest ways to make it better I can't even take a compliment.. argh.. frustrating. Art school really chews you up and spits you out. It makes you think that you are never going to be good enough, and that you will never make it alive in the real world.

Oh well.. 頑張る? ^^;

Went to a going away party for a friend on Saturday. He's going to Yamasa in a few weeks because I suggested it to him and he immediately signed up I hope he has a great time. I am quite jealous as I have been missing Japan like woah lately

 I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. I spent most of my day with my parents. Went over in the afternoon and then we ate lunch. My mom also wanted to make some manjuu, and so we experimented and made red bean filled manjuu. It turned out pretty tasty if I do say so myself After that we ended up watching Arashi shows. Yeah, you heard me. Arashi shows. We watched part of the Himitsu no Arashi-chan that I translated, and then an episode of G no Arashi with the Sugoroku game. It was all kinds of epic.

After that we hung around for a bit and then went to dinner, and that was that. It's been a while since I spent almost a whole day with my parents.. so it was nice.

Monday I worked and man... it was a long day.

Today was interesting 8D I did my vlog like usual, and then Nicole and Bethany came over so we could go over stuff for the Arashi fan-meet that is going on in two weeks YAAYY~! So excited! After we got burnt out from brainstorming, we just hung out for a long time, went to dinner, and then chatted. Relaxing day yay~ But I feel like there's so much I need to be doing I did get a chance to clean a bit today and that made me breathe a bit of a sigh of relief. Too much clutter around here these days

As mentioned before I've been getting extremely emotional about Japan lately. The littlest things remind me of Japan and I get so sad thinking about it and I just want to go back. I was just thinking about what it felt like when I was sitting in my room drinking lovely Japanese drinks with my window open and the TV on to some random news channel. It was.. relaxing. And.. just.. blah. Life seemed so much more simpler over there. It probably wasn't, but that's how it felt. Or maybe it was.

There are certain smells and things that I see that trigger these flashbacks and then I just get really sad. I am trying to avoid watching videos on YouTube of videos in Japan because just watching those makes me remember things! And the fact that my friend is leaving for Japan, I went back on to google maps to send him my map I made of important places and I found out that they did streetview on one of the larger streets of Okazaki and I basically walked down that road again virtually. It was..... just I don't know. I should stop talking about this because I'm going to get depressed again.

But this shouldn't be happening. I shouldn't be getting so sad about this that I get depressed over it!! So frustrated.

I really am going to be working on updating my Japan blog though. Hopefully will start that soon

Anyway, here's the vlog for this week:

I've got a few new years resolutions.. let's see how that goes I didn't make any last year on my journal, so I dunno how I did. But hey.. lots of stuff was done this year

lightning E XER CIZE
Continue to study Japanese 日本語を勉強し続けようと思います
Work on more translations
Get out more and do things (lol that makes me sound like a hermit)
Save up money

This is probably not going to happen, but I think if I set a really high goal for myself, it might happen. If I could save up enough money to go to an 11th anniversary concert in Japan, it would be AMAZING.

I watched the 2009-2010 Johnny's Countdown. It was really cute Am I the only person who thought the rendition of One Love that Kanjani8 did was ear-bleeding-ly off key? And they were also off a beat. I can officially say that I'm not impressed But the KJ8 rendition that Arashi did was really cute lol

Anyway, HAVE A GREAT NEW YEAR EVERYONE 8D 目標が実現できるようにお互いに頑張ろうね~^^

I seriously wasn't expecting to translate or post this anywhere near to now, but apparently here it is. I've got some free time I guess? rofl erm

I'll write about my Christmas later, which actually.. isn't over yet technically.. but I got some good presents, and I'm happy with the presents that were given out by me :D I hate throwing together gifts, because I feel like such a lazy person ;; well, anyway.. here's the translation

But! I finished another set of translations! I never thought I would finish the first one, and here I come month later with another set. *is proud of herself*

Please don't take this out of my journal without my permission.
DO NOT claim these as your own. I spend a lot of time translating these, please be respectful.
My notes are in italic like usual

We won’t slow down! )

present Aiba's Interview
present Jun's Interview
Nino's Interview
Ohno's Interview

NOTE: In my last couple translations, in Ohno's he mentioned getting colored pencils, and some people corrected me and told me it was Ogura-san that gave him those.. oops! Also, in Nino's translation, he mentioned the Gantz movie, and through my own personal error, he did not in fact say the shooting was almost done, but that it was almost starting. Sorry for those errors!

If anyone has requests for either short video clips or magazine articles, please let me know as I'm done with this set and don't really have much else to do
eggchan: (Misc//Cute Shit - Chii//gif)

XDDDDDDDDDDDDD You do that body roll, Nino

I hope you all have a great holiday!
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Sho)
Okay, so I'm really late on this but I guess since I'm posting this right now I might as well say it. (I am belated on both cases, but OH WELL)



今年も楽しい年を過ごせるように~大きいマグロを釣れるように!^^ 大ちゃんの誕生日のために絵を描きたいけど、この間描く時間があまりなくてごめんね。

Okay anyway, so on to the rest of this post. I managed to actually finish a whole article from a magazine. I mean, I've always stopped like halfway through (I have no idea why but whatever...) This calls for celebration! Or.. e-celebration, I dunno. *throws confetti* WOO!--okay enough of that.

So here is Jun's interview for you! He actually talks about some interesting things including the ARASHIC tour and international fans... どうぞ~

Please don't take this out of my journal without my permission.
DO NOT claim these as your own. I spend a lot of time translating these, please be respectful.

To Arashi, I feel the end of the year 2005 to 2006 became a big turning point for us. )

cherry Part 1: Aiba and Nino interviews
Part 2: Ohno and Sho interviews

P.S. Random thought -- I miss when Sho used to say "Maximum" all the time

"I got sunshine in a bag" on August 20th, 2001.

I have had this blog for far too long. But that is also one reason why I refuse to change my LJ... it's basically got my entire life from middle school, through High School, College and now. I only wonder what would happen if LJ broke and lost all my entries. D: I don't want to think about it.

Anyway, things have been fairly busy. (Here goes another way too long post cuz I was too lazy to update over the weekend D:) On Wednesday, a friend of mine from class was leaving because it was his last week. *sadface* Actually 2 of my friends left, but T_T. Anyway, he had a going away party and so I decided to join in the festivities and say goodbye to him. Luckily he lives in Japan with his family so I think he is going to come back and visit every so often.

We went to a restaurant called びっくりドンキー (Surprised Donkey). Don't ask. )

Then on Friday there was a 4th of July party that one of the students was holding, which I liked to call "Yay America Party". There was good ol' American food (which gave me a stomach ache, because I ate too much, and also probably because I'm so used to eating Japanese food now lol). Anyway, there were hamburgers (lucky for me the girl who was hosting it was also a vegetarian and made some grilled cheese sandwiches), potato salad, and the most delicious peach cobbler I've ever eaten in my life...

Someone bought poppers and we sang the national anthem and popped them off

More of what went on and the craziness! )

On Saturday, I had planned an outing to Nagoya with [ profile] chop_sockey and crew, so we met up at 10am at the train station, and off we went! On our way to Nagoya on the JR, a sumo wrestler got on the train with us, standing about 4 feet away. I felt really bad because I started laughing really hard, but Raechel's reaction was just so priceless, I couldn't stop. I could totally hear the "holy crap" expression sound effect they put on Japanese TV (and Arashi shows) all the time. She managed to be fairly sneaky and get a picture, which I am going to steal for the sake of proving that I was on a train with a sumo wrestler.

...and so the adventure begins... )

And we came home tired and exhausted. My legs and feet hurt SO bad when I got back, I just sat and did just about nothing on Sunday. Aside from some errands and such :) I will take pictures of the Yukata, necklace, and shirt thing soon! Here's more pictures of bakery goods I bought recently.

It was pretty good. A little plain, but tasty. Had a little hint of sweet potato in it.

SO GOOD. It was like a croissant with chocolate drizzled on top, and IN THE MIDDLE. Yummymyyyy

And last night I watched Utaban, which was entertaining, and also Music Lovers with Arashi as the guest! :D It was funny. The guests picked who they thought was the most popular (Matsujun of course), and Arashi also wrote down what they thought. Ohno put down that he thought Sho was the most popular, and his reasoning? "He's really good looking". XD

Okay, I'm out! Love you all, and miss you!
eggchan: (K-Pop//DBSK - Junsu イチゴ食べたい!)
Quick thing before I run off for family Easter stuff.

Anyone in the Mpls/Minnesota area that wants something from Yesasia? It will be FREE OF SHIPPING.

I literally only need like $3.00 worth of stuff to get free shipping -_-;; so yeah. Let me know!

Other than that, Happy Zombie Jesus Day :D
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Ohno beauty)
Hello everyone! Happy April Fools! Unfortunately, I don't really have anything to fool you with lol.

We got back from Chicago last night. I really want to make a post about the trip and everything (trust me it'll be LOOOONG), but at the moment I have NO time. T__T I have an Anime convention to go to and sell my artwork at in 2 DAYS. AAUUGH!! But, I really want to make a post about it, so I'm sure in the near future I will make an epic post that is epic ^^

Anyway, I thought I'd update real quick, and at least show everyone the merch I snagged! I was looking for the AAA 2008 DVD (even though I couldn't afford it >_>) or some new Arashi single honestly.. but all they had was Arashic!! For like 45 dollars! X_X;; Poor college student can't afford that.. hahh.. and they were completely out of Potato and Popolo (which is what I was LOOKING for lmao..) oh well. I was still able to get 2 magz. ^^

I'm hiding my face today because I look horrible right now >_>

Check 'em out. ^^ )

Anyway, that's it!! I've been running around today trying to get all my errands and shit done. I talked with National Camera Exchange and they said that it would cost $150-170 to send my camera to Canon and have them fix it. T_T So... hopefully I will have some good news on some sort of camera soon.

Also! The school I am looking to sign up for my study abroad in Japan has FINALLY updated their website. I CAN SIGN UP NOW. AND HOPE THEY ACCEPT ME. >_< *crosses fingers*

Anyway.. I got holiday cards from a bunch of people!! [ profile] unlostwanderer, [ profile] whoompah, [ profile] chirusea_3, [ profile] brailleun, & [ profile] ihrayne! I ♥ you all! ^^ And those of you who are expecting cards from me... I swear they will show up. I've sent out some of them, but some of the other ones haven't been sent out yet. Please be patient and forgive me ^_^;;

I'm gonna put them up on my wall soon X33 Awww you guys are so sweet I love ya all~ <33

Ahhhh... I am trying really hard to not regret this winter break. LET'S GO FUN! (go away snow..)

EDIT: I knew I was forgetting something xD

昨夜、パーティーに行きました。沢山の友達がいたので、うれしかった。^^UFCのファイトがテレビで放送していたので、それを見ながら皆で話していました。三人はすごく酔ってしまいました。wwUFCファイトの後にSing Starというプレーステーション2のゲームをやりました。基本的にカラオケゲームですが、アメリカの曲ばかりあります。いくつか好きな曲がありますが、あのカラオケゲームよりカラオケボックスを行って歌う方を好んでます。

eggchan: (Misc//Cute Shit - Suck My Balls//gif)

I'll make a better post later this week. Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas..



God.. you're 26 years old.. and you still behave like a 12 year old xDDD
eggchan: (K-Drama//Gong Yoo - peek)
So I've gotten totally hooked on 내이름은 김삼순 (My name is Kim Sam-Soon) thanks to [ profile] seolleim helping me figure out where I can watch it ^^ On the 8th episode now. Wheeee!

Aaand, I watched episode 9 of Ryuusei no Kizuna.. Will be posting a picspam post eventually. :D

Christmas has really taken me for a loop this year. First of all, I couldn't even think about it in the first place before my finals finished, and now I have no idea what to get anyone -_-;; Augh.. I feel so behind on everything.

I also watched A Walk to Remember tonight.. sorry guys.. no tears from me.. not even close :\ I guess I just am never gonna cry during a movie.

Anyway, just wanted to do a little update, cuz I've been pretty inactive on here (and online in general).. holidays are just catching up with me, I think.. and some friends are back from school for winter break, so I've been spending time with them ^^ I've hardly even had a chance to listen to music, geeze.

It's cold here.

Really fucking cold... -7.. no idea what the windchill is though.. supposedly it was -30 today, and god I wouldn't fucking doubt it.. it was so damn cold.. and so much damn snow. I'm sure by now we have at least a foot and 1/2 of snow. It just won't go away.. and it's gonna snow again on Tuesday.


Why do I always feel like everyone else has so much more exciting lives? I don't get myself sometimes.

Ignore what I just said -_-;

EDIT: Forgot to mention I got my new HDD installed and now I have a little over 1 TB of disk space. Sweet lord I love it.
eggchan: (K-Pop//Yoon Eun Hye - Chuuuu~)
It's fucking BACK.. OMGGGGG... but I wonder how long it will last T___T Hopefully it won't happen again.. seriously.

I read a bunch of my f-list, but I'm not even gonna try to catch up, honestly.


Still working on holiday cards T______T I'm sorry everyone I suck at this.

But... I'm getting there.

Will make... a better post later tomorrow.. long day of work not super looking forward to, but whatever ^^;

I started working on the postcards I'll be sending out soon. ^______^ I'm sending some postcards to some people even if they didn't ask for one XDD;;

But I wanted to see if anyone else wanted a postcard before I started sending them out~! So here's my list of who I've got so far ^_^

And I'm still working on your thing [ profile] akagasuki X3

My original postcard post is HERE, so comment on there if you'd like a postcard cuz the comments are screened on that one ^_^

♪~Happy Holidays everyone~♫ .. and Happy Thanksgiving~♥

Japanese Journal




eggchan: (J-Pop//Otsuka Ai - *gasp*)
And-- Happy Birthday Tegoshi Yuya~.

Congratulations on growing up to be the biggest エロ王子 I know. And a woman.

Anyway, on to the bandwagon whoring.

Step One

- Make a post (public, friends locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two

- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

1) Write/Make me something (digital).
  • I want my very own icon. Of anything (I suppose preferably within the fanbase). ^^ No one has ever made me an icon before just for me, so it would make me really happy!
  • Make me a wallpaper~! My resolution is 1280x1024 ^^ DBSK, Arashi, News, etc related preferably. ^^ Or if you really want to, something that has to do with my nickname [ profile] eggchan XD
  • Write me a poem~?
  • Draw me a picture I can print out and put on my wall to decorate more~! - This would make me so happy X3
  • Take a digital picture of something really important to you/something you really like. Again, I'll put it up on my wall ^^
  • Send me a really random text message! (Or a not-so-random text message) (If you don't already have it, my number is HERE, under a filter, so comment if you want to be put on the filter. ^^ I get unlimited texts, picture messages, voice messages, and IM's.. so don't worry :D) It'd also be nice if you included your LJ username or something so I know who I'm getting these from XD

2) Send me a card/postcard
  • Send me a postcard or some sort of image of where you are from~! I'll put it up on my little wall space and it'll remind me of my awesomely diverse f-list every time I look at it ^^
  • Send me something but write in your native language... especially if it's not English xD (I will be so confused, but it'll be awesome, ok)

3) Send me other shit/stuff that may or may not cost you money... -_-;
  • Collages are fun~! XDD;
  • Send me a drama you think I'd like to watch! (Doesn't have to be watchable on DVD players, .avi files are fine... preferably on a DVD-R or +R though)
  • Send me a mix-cd/dvd of music! American music is alright! I'd like to find some artists that I like.. but really, anything goes. K-Pop, J-Pop, C-Pop, etc)
  • Send me a mix-cd/dvd of Arashi/DBSK/News/etc clips of cracky/spazzy or otherwise awesome moments that should never be missed! (Trust me, I'm *really* slow when it comes to some clips.)
  • Posters..? XD;;
  • Shop photos you.. don't happen to want anymore for some reason that probably doesn't exist XD
  • Magazines >_>;
  • A drawing~!

Man I really suck at asking for stuff xD

My mailing address and cell number is HERE under a filter, and I'll add you if you reply ^^

Also~ I keep seeing these post card things everywhere, and I'm finally cracking and deciding to do it. I've never done it before, but you know it could be fun~! So, if you'd like a postcard from me, leave your address and I will do my best to give everyone a unique card~! ^^ All comments are screened of course.

P.S. I really do love you f-list. You make me feel loved. ♥
