So yesterday I spent nearly three hours at the gym and instead of the awful muscle pain I had on Wednesday from Tuesday morning’s session, I am hungry. LOL like seriously hungry, I’m not really eating ridiculously little or anything but my body keeps telling me NO, NEED MOAR FOOD NAO PLX. So, my ambitious plans of completely rewriting the first chapter of my thesis today? Total failure. I can’t focus at all. Not that I’m normally that good at staying focused, but today is especially bad. I ate two sandwiches, I ate a banana and an apple, I’m drinking lots and lots of tea. It’s all not working. GRRR. /annoyed. Normally this is more than enough. I don’t get it :(

So instead of doing anything productive today, I figured I could write a decent intro post since my first post on LJ wasn’t much of an intro post, LOL. So:

Intro post this waaaaay…it has peektures )

Some links:
My tumblr
My deviantArt (oh right, I like drawing :3)

Wow this post is really tl;dr >____< sorry people.


Bye now :3
buzzbird: (Shige silly)
So I guess the posting two days in a row thing didn't really stick. It's been two weeks. Hi guys :3 I've been reading your journals and all but lately tumblr is so shiny *_______* seriously shiny. Besides the obvious fangirling I really Love browsing through the Japanese and Korean fashion tags ♥♥♥♥♥ SO I'm going to be a whore now and say follow meeeeeee. I reblog almost anything I really like which basically leads to a nice mix of fangirl, crazy, and soooo prettyyyyyyyyy *___________________* I sometimes (two times :P) even write something.

Speaking of writing. Writing my thesis has been interesting so far. It's nowhere near done but I've basically come up with a lot of nonsense and now I'm waiting for my classmates' and my advisor's comments so I can start rewriting. I fail at life sometimes.

EXCEPT I DON'T. Today our language teacher told us that even though she hadn't looked very closely at our papers, she'd been reading through them and we all passsss. WHOOOSH. I didn't even know how much I was dreading that rewrite until she told us it wouldn't be necessary. AND! And. For the translation minor I'm taking we have to hand in 2/3 translations this semester, Dutch to English and the two highest grades count. I thought I'd screwed one up so I handed in a third but besides my two 8.5s(!!!!) I scored a freaking 10. A 10!!! I'm still ridiculously happy about this even though I've known about it since last Monday :P /modest

Another thing I've been doing well is dieting. Oh yesss. And working out. I really really want to lose some a lot of weight. Partly because it's just healthier and partly because I can then wear prettier clothes. Which is where tumblr comes in and is like this huge ball of motivation and sparkles and rainbows and lace and sequins and and and prettyyyyyyy... *__*cigarette

Starting my new job at the museum dining hall this Saturday. I'm curious about meeting my co-workers. I like meeting new people :3 Speaking of which, I totally missed the friending meme. Sad :( but not really :) because you guys are already pretty damn awesome.

Keep up the awesome and I'll hopefully see you guys on tumblr.

Oh before I forget (again) I have a too. It's over here.

Okay byeeeeee!!!
buzzbird: (Kame LOL)
So I'm writing my BA thesis way too last minute and all, and then I come across this right after my stepdad had just given me caffeine pills. GUESS WHAT HAPPENED... actually not that much :P I learned the first 40 seconds or something and I haven't gotten any further yet :P 3 more thesis-writing days and then it has to be dooooone, because I have another paper waiting. In Japanese. Can I ask you guys to check it after I'm done? XD I know I have some people on my flist who have mad Japanese skillz. I'M LOOKING AT YOU YES. I hate writing a thesis XD my thesis supervisor pretty much keeps telling me to rewrite, and rewrite, and rewrite, and I'm starting to hate the guy a little XD

Last Monday I had a job interview. It's like this catering kind of company that runs dining halls in museums and stuff. They hired me right away and I feel so good about myself because of it, it's even kind of annoying me :P (@[ profile] changetje, I'll be seeing you around, lol)

LOL a friend of mine just called me "What are you doing Friday night? Because it's Joost's birthday and we want to hire a stripper!!!" I swear to god XD I couldn't stop laughing for like three minutes. He just wanted to ask whether or not I was going to the birthday party and wanted to chip in but yeah, DIDN'T REALLY COME OUT THAT WAY XD

Okay, so back to Monday ♥ )

Or: how I made him a bentou (with nothing but tamagoyaki in it but a bentou nonetheless) and he ditched me in favor of writing his thesis. Her thesis. Whatever.


This way if you want to know about my new boyfriend )
Gwynn, go finish that lit review, silly girl!
buzzbird: (Jin pssshyeah)
So I thought it might be time for a little update on the fascinating mess of boring that is my life. Last time I told you guys I'd been to the neurologist right? Well I've had my EEG and today I had my MRI, so, next week I have to come by to discuss the results. Honestly, I'm not expecting anything at this point. I wouldn't be surprised if the doctor told me I'm completely healthy. The EEG was kind of annoying. You just lie there in a dark room with your eyes closed and you have to open them every three minutes or so. Then after fifteen minutes you have to start inhaling and exhaling exaggeratedly for a few minutes. After that they place a stroboscope in front of your face which makes these weird figures and stuff on the inside of your eyelids. Yeah real fun right?
The MRI was special too. It was kind of like being inside a drill/vacuum cleaner/washing machine type of machine and you have to lie very very still for about half an hour.

Last friday I had my resit for Premodern Chinese History. I studied for it. A lot. Seriously I don't know where filial piety comes from, BUT IT SURE AS HELL AIN'T CHINA. Everybody killed their parents and their brothers and their sisters (or made them commit suicide xD). Pretty sure that in a few years all I'll remember is this guy.

Fandom related (those of you not interested can skip this :P) I kind of decided not to buy the Ultimate Wheels single, what with Jin's first single being released next month, but I was weak and I ordered it anyway. I even ordered the limited edition AHAHAHA, because it has TWO, and I'm pretty much in love with TWO. For those of you who still haven't found our translation community, we translated TWO over here. [ profile] encoded_panties also made us an index, in case you're interested in what else we've done so far :3 WHAT DO YOU MEAN MY NINJA PIMPING SKILLS NEED MORE SUBTLETY.

I don't know what it is with me and ninjas these days, but I'm finding them highly amusing. For example, [ profile] darkeyedwolf made a pimp post about Ninja Assassin the other day. Which I showed to [ profile] siren_no_oto because it's relevant to her Korea interests, which made her buy the DVD (which we'll watch soooooon, sooooooooon).
Also, this website is made of pure beauty!

My favorite quote is "Ninjas in stilettos. Fashion Assassins! Not so stealthy, but oh so stylish!"
buzzbird: (nakanishi WHOEH)
Hello minna, o genki desu ka, dare is your kakkoi ichiban desu kawaii desuuuu?

Yeah I can totally do that now that the hate meme is over, my dream has come true. If anyone who was there reads this: I loved every second of it, you beautiful socks :D So thank you for making the beginning of my year all sparkly and pretty! :D


So uhm yeah, the hate meme is actually the most interesting thing that's happened up until now. Oh I got a 7- on my modern history research paper which I just cannot be happy about am making myself accept as a decent grade, they can't all be 8s or higher right? Still waiting for all of my other grades, I hope I don't have any resits *crosses fingers* I know for a fact though that I failed premodern Chinese history though, I failed so badly they probably won't even let me do the resit XD

Hmm anything else? I have my Culture Studies exam tomorrow, which is going to be interesting. I've been studying for it since the 1st of January. Seriously though, I like Britain and I like the US, BUT I DON'T WANT TO KNOW EVERY SINGLE DETAIL ABOUT YOUR STUPID LEGAL SYSTEMS OR BORING RELIGIONS OKAY?!
Stupid translation minor, ugh.

Anywayss, today [ profile] encoded_panties is coming over. Haven't seen her since the day before Christmas, so I'm looking forward to that :D We're supposed to study for tomorrow's exam but I foresee sparkles and prettiness too ♥♥♥

Well that's it for now, buhbye!
buzzbird: (nakanishi WHOEH)

Now that that's out of the way, I guess I'll copy [ profile] siren_no_oto and make a bit of a summary of this year and of my expectations for next year. I'll try to keep it positive (after all you can't have pink sparkles and negativity in the same entry):

list of forgetfulness is under the cut )

Or at least that's what I've been trying to tell myself this entire semester already. I had to give a presentation in Japanese yesterday, those presentations need to be on a relatively serious topic. We have these debates about the topic afterwards so it has to be something people can disagree on XD We're supposed to talk for ten minutes or so but I definitely talked less than that, then again, everyone does.
ANYWAYS my topic was whether or not the coast guard officer who uploaded the youtube video of the recent Senkaku boat incident should be prosecuted or not. I think he should be prosecuted, but anyways, we had a debate about that. I was SO nervous for that presentation, you wouldn't believe it. Like my friends told me afterwards that I did fine and had nothing to worry about but then today one of my friends told me that it was really obvious that I was nervous, even though I'd tried my best to hide it XD
Then after that, I spent the rest of the day (and part of the evening) with [ profile] encoded_panties to work on a text about women in management positions in Japan, in Japanese, for our Academic Texts course. We tried to rush it a little but we ended up spending a lot of time on it after all <:( After that I decided a deserved the rest of the night off so I finished watching Anego ( OMFGsofnsidfusidfnsd ) and went to bed around 23:30, which is pretty early for me these days... :P Today I attended an informative meeting about the MA Japanese Studies. It seems that as long as I get enough money together so that I can stop working for one year it should be alright, lol. (that is of course IF I get past the first semester which the professors said is a very intensive few months) After that I sat down in the library for about three hours or so, working on translations of Murakami Haruki's Tony Takitani, which we're doing in our translation class atm. Then back home, reading texts on warped wartime histories. Up until now. Because I give up for tonight. My head feels like it's going to fall OFF. TL;DR STUDYING IS NOT FUN RIGHT NOW. SO I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO CHRISTMAS BECAUSE EXCEPT FOR WORKING EXTRA SHIFTS I CAN PRACTICALLY TAKE LIKE THREE DAYS OFF OR SOMETHING~ YAAAAAAY XD

I'm sure that some of you have already seen this come by on your f-lists, but I thought I'd go for some shameless self-promoting now and tell you all that at [ profile] jiyuugaoka we have the translations up for NEETman and Never x Over. Yesterday evening we also posted GIRLS, so CHECK IT OUT YO~~~

What could be next, what could be next...

(Shameless self-promoting not so shameless, goes hide in corner)

Also, today I will find out the grade for one of my papers. If I don't pass it, it means I'm stuck here one more year BUT it also means I can live, sleep, breathe, you know, those kinds of things that actually make life worth living. If I do pass it I might just fail MOAR later on, but then again, it could also mean that come spring 2012 I'll be studying and living in Japan. Either way, it's out of my hands and I'm just going to have let it all happen ~~~ (I'm bad at stuff like that so I tell myself a hundred times) *NERVOUS*
buzzbird: (kame boys without shirts)
So I've been working on this for a few weeks (for linguistic purposes only of course XD) and because I haven't seen a translation of this anywhere so far (please tell me if there is), I thought I'd share it. Whoooh, enjoy! BTW I can't get over how long this translation became though the Japanese version seemed so. much. shorter. :3 EDITED!!!

<u>A delayed summer vacation: KAT-TUN</u> )
buzzbird: (kame boys without shirts)
Ok so because I have no life actually have lots of studying to do, I thought it'd be a good idea to update this thing again. Tomorrow I have this HUGE kanji test, which will probably be the smallest one we'll have this year *depressed* and after that I have to die an excruciating death that'll last all day as I sit down with [ profile] encoded_panties to analyze an academic text about Japanese fascism during WW II. Interesting stuff, but not exactly fun to do when it's completely in Japanese.

Of course those are all great ways to spend a Wednesday in their own way, but what tops it off is that this Wednesday happens to be my 21st birthday. Ahh Japan, how much I sacrifice for you.

After probably not being able to finish the text, I'm going to have dinner at my dads place, with my stepmom and my little brother (not really all that little anymore, he can now literally look down on me) and hopefully that'll be fun because after that I get to read (in English) about Japanese war brutalities for my Modern History class, until my birthday is over probably. Goodie.

It'll most likely rain too.

So here's the plan: I will listen to NEWS' "Happy Birthday" until the day is over and hope it'll cheer me up XD

In other news: On Monday I'm going to go to Amstelveen (a place in the Netherlands where most Japanese living in the Netherlands live) and try to get my hands on some Japanese magazines and stuff (basically buy everything I see that is vaguely relevant to my interests XD)
