Soo, I got back from my first real trip to Paris yesterday. I read up on all of your posts ♥ and I thought now I’d make a little post about my week :D but since I know none of you want to read a 12-page essay on HOW FREAKING BIG AND IMPRESSIVE THEIR BUILDINGS ARE, I figured I’d just put it in a convenient little list :3

I had a lot of fun this week and a lot of credit for that goes to Gwynn and Sabine, who despite being ridiculously tired (and sick and in pain) were totally awesome. I love you guys so much ♥♥♥

Lists are this way. I’d provide pictures, but Google does a much better job of it )

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

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 ♥ )

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!"

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 )

Some days

Some days, were just made to be awesome. The place where my university is located, Leiden, has this celebration on the fourth of October, that they defeated the Spaniards, during the 80-year war. There's a huge festival that starts the night before and everyone just basically gets crazy drunk. Naturally no classes are held that day.
Of course, I'm above all of that crazy partying.
Instead, [ profile] encoded_panties, [ profile] siren_no_oto and me took the train to Amsterdam where we took a tram to Amstelveen. There's a Japanese bookstore there we wanted to visit. There were actually a lot more books than I thought! I basically expected a normal Dutch bookstore where one can also buy some Japanese things. Instead, the entire store was crammed full with Japanese books, dvd's, magazines and other awesomeness.
We all bought the same issue of Myojo (the November one) and I also bought a small book called "Making Out in Japanese". It has one chapter that is strictly about romance (marriage, sex, stuff like that) but the other eleven (i think) chapters are on casual Japanese. So that's going to be pretty useful I guess. We learn a lot of polite stuff at university but normal speech is something that we're pretty much expected to pick up on our own.
After that we went back to Amsterdam (because Amstelveen was basically a huge bore on a normal school day) and walked around for a bit. We found this restaurant called Tokyo Cafe that was located in this Gorgeous Jugendstil building. After looking at the prices (all you can eat for E21.80!!) we decided we should definitely eat there.
To kill some time until it was a reasonably time to sit down for dinner, we went into the American Book Center. Which was of course also full of awesome.
We had a fabulous dinner and even though we were already so full we just kept eating because it was ridiculously delicious.

The best thing about yesterday was the company I was in though. You guys made my day! ♥♥♥ ILU!!!
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)
