...with newly installed semagic...

yes, my friends, I have a new computer )

update in which I attempt to briefly cover iniq's visit, work, a trip to japan, yuletide, and some recent highlights )

christmas.... just as the weather's turned a bit more christmassy (read cold with the occasional dust of snow ^^;), I'm also making progress with presents and cards, so this is the last call for signing up. The post in question is >>>HERE<<<. ^___^

on the same note, it's also time to say THANK YOU... ^__^

1) to [profile] whimsy_chan for the lovely christmas card. It's the first one that's arrived, so it's very special. ^_^ *smoooooch* thank you, Lady!

2) to [profile] kedriaa. there are no words to describe my surprise and happiness, and just how much it means to me. he's absolutely adorable! ^_______________________^ thank you so much! *snugsnug* ♥♥ *makes the puppets dance and dances with them*

and now... definitely time for bed. *sleeeeeepy*

hello reality

I got back ok last night - late, but with all my luggage and without major delays for once. yay! ^^;

I also managed somehow to catch a cold a couple of days back, so that was less fun. Flying with a cold sucks. -.-" And I'm still feeling it, so I'm going to bed after posting this. I also have the suspicion that there's a nasty cough in the makings....grrr. *shakes fist* Bad timing! I need to catch up with all the stuff for uni, and then there's a project for the scouts that I need to complete as soon as possible. Also, presentation next Monday. Ugh. And finish unpacking. Haven't quite finished that yet. I need more room. Less stuff is apparently not an option *pokes self*. I'm at my parents right now since my printer refused to print my tax papers and I have to turn them in until tomorrow...

Other than that, the trip was absolutely wonderful and waaaaay too short. There are quite a few people I would have liked to meet up with that I didn't have time to meet, and so many more things to see and do. And there will be a time when I can go to a concert at the Tokyo Dome, I swear. I'm going to put this on my list of things to accomplish in life. *^_^* I had so much fun, though, got invited and spoiled. ♥ I talked and laughed so much, thoroughly using and enjoying the opportunity to finally speak Japanese again. And I got to cuddle my lovely [livejournal.com profile] belina ♥♥♥! And the food, THE FOOD. *_* I gained weight, though that was to be expected. ^^; Aaaaaand, I actually did get to see some beautiful cherry blossoms. Cherry blossom season just started last week, and I was lucky to catch Ueno park in full bloom. Wow. Just wow. It made my trip even more special.

Pictures will have to wait, though, until I've managed to sort through the 2 gigs of pics [livejournal.com profile] belina took. @_@ She's camera happy, that one. My oh my.

Anyway, I'm sorry for not replying to comments yet. I'll get to that as soon as I've caught up on sleep and energy. I have a hard time thinking as you can see by how disjointed this post is. *sweatdrop* I have lots and lots to do this week, too, but I'm sure I'll be able to squeeze you guys in somewhere. ^_~ ♥♥♥

...so sleeeeepy..... e_e

One last thing before I skip off to bed. I watched the third Tsubasa OVA while waiting at the airport in Copenhagen... oh Fay. My love for Fay knows no bounds. ♥ So much love.

*sobs*

First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SUZU! ♥!
*smooch* I hope you have a wonderful day. ^_^

only a couple of hours till take off! ^__________^ mwaha!

my suitcase.....IS FULL OF FOOD! Christ. Chocolate everywhere, seriously. XD XD XD!

[livejournal.com profile] belina, my flight info looks as follows:

Zurich dep. 12.20h -- SK3504
Kopenhagen arr. 14.05h

Kopenhagen dep. 15.40h -- SK983
Tokyo arr. 10.40h (16.3.)

As of right now, everything seems to be on time.

***

You can still reach me, as always, through email and I'm pretty sure I'll be able to check lj once in a while, too. ^_^ Luckily, Japan is not off the planet.

and now... I'm leaving for the airport. YES!
haraamis: (just a dream)
4 DAYS!

^___^

God, I'm so excited.

But...^^; There is much to be done before I can leave, which is why I haven't been around much. Sleep? Who needs sleep... :P

I've got the first presentation of the semester in about 3 hours, after nothing but scrambling to get the sources together over the last 2 weeks. Why is it that there's a TON of books at the library but those you really, really need are always gone? -.-"

Helped out with the scouts yesterday night (... I can never say no when they ask me... I just can't...^^;), went to my parents' after that and found a pleasant surprise there. ^_^ Since I'm gonna be in Japan on my birthday, they gave me my presents early.
*beams* I got a really soft red blanket (I've wanted one for so long!) and champagne glasses - 4 pieces, 2 with red stems and 2 with blue stems, so I have a matching pair for both my kitchen and my living room. XD XD My mom knows me so well. *loves her*

Also, I've had one of those dreams last night again. Yeah, one of those "he's gonna kiss me, he's gonna kiss me, he's gonna.... aw, CURSES, WHY am I waking up NOW?!"-dreams. Arrgh! *cough* I do think I should refrain from mentioning who "he" was this time, though, as some people on my flist might laugh so hard at me they might hurt themselves....^^;;;;

*ahem*

Anyway, off to uni now.

this and that

First of all, a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of the sweetest and cutest people online.

I hope you have a great one, [livejournal.com profile] misanagi! *smooch*

uni workload so far for this semester:

more under the cut if you're interested )

I also agreed to give a lecture on Japanese morphology in one of the Introduction to Linguistics classes in the English Department so the students can get a view on the subject from a language completely different from English. Which I like doing. ^_^ I love talking about Japanese linguistics. *pets inner geek*


***

Last but not least: I'M GOING TO JAPAN NEXT MARCH! *bouncebounce* for two weeks. ^_________^
haraamis: (Kame - lazy)
'cause I should be doing anything but this kind of thing...^^;

me meme )
haraamis: (Past Bedtime)
^_^

I got home all right yesterday night, surprisingly for once without ANY problem concerning my luggage or flight. Amazing, isn't it? *snerk*

I slept in today, then had breakfast with my mom. Later we went into town to get pictures done for my application for the Japanese language proficiency test and to pick up some other stuff.
We came back and since it was nice and sunny out, we had lunch in our back yard... ah, life is good. So much green and flowers and it smells so good. *beams*

I realized that I am really happy to be back although I do already miss my friends like crazy...so it's kind of bittersweet. It helps a lot that there is a fall festival in my home town this weekend, so everything is decorated and pretty.
I spent most of tonight helping with my scout group who also has a part in the festival. We put up a huge tent and a tower. Tomorrow I'm gonna be standing in the kitchen there and make fries and steak and stuff...hehe. Lots of fun ahead!

Oh, and I talked to [livejournal.com profile] iniq on the phone today! The sweetheart called me to see if I got home ok. *loves on her madly*

*yawns* Now I need to go to bed and try to avoid getting jetlagged...I've been fine so far, and I do hope it stays that way...

*fwing*
haraamis: (flail)
still packing and cleaning, but getting closer to finishing...

I also got confirmation today (finally!) that I am allowed to take 30kg in my checked luggage instead of the usual 20kg. Thank god.

I sent out some more stuff today, posters and such. And there's gonna be another box with books. >.<. does it ever end?? *flails*

***

Also, I'm going out for dinner tonight with friends I probably won't see again for a long time... ;_; so sad...

goodbyes suck...-.-
haraamis: (well well)
Well...

...the countdown is on.

Preparations for my return to Switzerland have begun... and I'm busy, busy, busy, trying to get everything done, get my stuff sorted out and packed, meet with as many people as I can since I won't see them for a long time, buy presents for people back home and souvenirs for myself, and so on...

Luckily, [livejournal.com profile] belina - bless her, oh what would I DO without her! - is in Tokyo right now and will take some of my stuff home as well. So I need to get that separated from everything else.

I already sent out one box of books, and another one is packed up, almost ready to go as well. And still there is NO END to ...stuff. >.<. I'm DOOMED.

But, I did pay all my bills today (except for the airport tax and the last electricity bill), so the rest of the money is mine to spend. Mwahaha. Oh, wait! That means more stuff! *dead*

*cough*

Anyway...

oddly enough, I'm feeling quite good. Accomplished somehow, busy, but in a satisfying way. Hm.

I still can't believe this year went by this fast. It feels as though I've just got here, and now it's time to leave it all behind. I think I'll keep living in denial for the remaining two weeks (no, 13 days! kyaaa). Despite the er...obvious packages, luggages and other things that should remind me every second...yes.

this and that

First of all, thank you to everyone who has been worrying and commented on my last post. I'm doing much better, and surprisingly mostly thanks to /him/. He's been nothing but sweet and caring, and the knowledge that I won't ever lose his friendship makes me feel at ease.

*hugs and snuggles* for all you guys for you are the best! ♥


***

Nee-love, thank you so much for the package. It made me feel much much better. It got here a couple of days ago, just at the right time. ^_~ *loves*

***

Furthermore, since Hex, the sweetheart that she is (♥ ♥ ♥), went through the trouble and sent me a postcard demanding I post pics of my adventures in Japan, I herewith present you with photos of my latest travels:

4 days in Nagano with Marie - my next door dorm mate and one of my best friends here in Japan

Hiroshima and Miyajima - a quite famous island by Hiroshima and one of the top tourist spots in Japan

Mount Koya - One of Japan's big Buddhist centers with the head temple of the Shingon sect - a bit south of Osaka

Ise - Ise Jingu - one of the holiest places in Japan - 6.5 million Japanese go there every year

Enjoy! And if you have any questions, please ask. ^_^

***

As for now, I'm off to spend 3 days in Chiba with one of my Japanese friends and her family - Yay, Japanese countryside!

*fwing*

Tuesday, 22 August 2006 10:43 pm
haraamis: (happiness)
And yet another trip. ^___^

I'm going to Hiroshima this time, and then visit a couple of places in Kansai. All by myself, yay! I've wanted to go there since I came to Japan, so this is kind of special.

Again, no internet, but you can reach me over my cell phone email (in the post about the trip to Nagano) if need be.

Back late Saturday night.

Have a good week, everyone. ^___^

trip! and sadness

Tuesday, 15 August 2006 02:59 am
haraamis: (just a dream)
^_^

I'll be gone for the next couple of days (till the 19th) and most likely without internet. You can still reach me over my cell phone email, though, if need be. marianne-christina at ezweb.ne.jp
I've been invited by one of my friends to stay at her family's house in Nagano. *beams*

If the weather holds up we're going to see gigantic fireworks tonight. Apparently over 40'000 missiles going up into the sky. *grins* And there I thought the one in Yokohama with 8000 missiles was enormous. I really hope it's not going to rain! *crosses fingers*

I know I still owe many replies, and I will try to catch up on all of them once I get back. *already dreading the view friends+skip a bizillion times*

so, yay! trip!

***

Not so yay...Kara is leaving today. I can't believe it. Too much sadness for my mind to comprehend. ;_; So I'll just stop dwelling on it and go back to happy land of denial. For another 1 1/2 hours or so. *sad*

***

Last but not least, [livejournal.com profile] misanagi, thank you so much for the drabble! It was perfect. *loves* LJ wouldn't let me reply at the time I read it and then I forgot about it with everything that's going on. ^^; Thanks again. *smooch*

*thud*

sorry for just dropping off the face of the earth...

I could explain why, but I'm simply too exhausted after the 8 hour train ride....

long story short, I'm back from Kyoto in one piece, with all my luggage (and more) and no money. But happy. ^_^

I'm going to bed in a minute, but before I do that...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SUZU! ♥

All the best, and I hope you have a wonderful day. ^__^ *snugs*

Back!

Thursday, 9 March 2006 05:43 pm
haraamis: (Kame - sweet dreams)
Back from Okinawa, safe and sound. ^_^ Just a tiny bit sunburned...oops *cough* ^^;

ah well. let's call it battle scars. XD

also, [livejournal.com profile] belina will be here in less than a week, omgsqueee! ^_________^

I tried to catch up with lj tonight, but it seems I have to cave in and push it off till tomorrow....

now....sleeeeeeep. e_e
haraamis: (snowfall)
Yes, I'm going on a trip. again. *laughs*

What can I do, I love travelling. As if you didn't know that. *cough* Anyway...

Evil finals weeks from hell are over, but I've been even too tired to write about it. ugh.

But no more of that.

I'm going sking this time. In Gunma prefecture, for those of you who care to look up where that is. ^_^

I'll be back Friday night. And then I'm leaving again on Monday for the next trip. ^^;

[livejournal.com profile] darthanne, [livejournal.com profile] lil_1337, and [livejournal.com profile] meritjubet, your drabbles are actually done, but only written long hand. ^^;
I hope I'll find the time to do that when I get back.

Time for some last minute preparations....*wanders off, whistling*

(ad - on my way to university)


(sweatshirt - clothes store in osaka)

I don't think further comments are necessary... XD

[Edit] I ventured to ff.net.... and found this in one of the summaries:

Rated M for lots of sexual jokes, immature humor, and bad spelling.

er....*cracks up*

another trip

Monday, 2 January 2006 10:27 am
haraamis: (well well)
Hee!

Leaving for a trip once again. I'm going to visit Kobe and Osaka this time. Have to use the time before university starts again next week. ^_^

I'll be back on the 8th.

Take care and be good while I'm gone.... ^_~ Yes. That kind of good. *grins*
