..and home for the moment... or better, for the next hour or so. Then I'm off again to visit a friend who spontaneously invited me to spend one or two nights at her place. She's going to be working in France from April to November, so I really want to use the opportunity to spend time with her.

I had an absolutely great weekend with two friends I met in Japan and who are very, very dear to me. We had so much fun and it made me really happy to be able to show them a tiny bit of the country I live in and love and take them to places that are important to me. You know everything is perfect when two of your guy friends talk about other women but still manage to make you feel special and treasured. *grins* I'll try and get a few pictures online when I get back.

It was also an entire weekend of speaking Japanese, and I realized how much I miss it and also how much I still have to learn. >.<.
However, on the same topic, I got also great news this week. *beams* I passed the Japanese proficiency test I took last December. ^_______^ So happy. I honestly didn't expect to pass but now I'm happy all the more that I did. I didn't get a very good score, but I passed and that is all that counts at the moment. ^^;

On the anime front: I finally finished Harukanaru Toki no Naka de. I was a bit surprised that I was fine with the ending as it was since I had heard things about it that made me uneasy. No real problem there, though. I just wish that more people would write fanfic for this series with its vast potential with so many things left open, and at least 10 dead gorgeous men! *laughs* So many possible combinations.... And with that pleasant thought I leave once again, but I'll be back soon.
haraamis: (H/D - Mistletoe)
Well well....

Test is over... I don't think I did all that well ( I had to guess on more than half of the questions), but I'm just relieved it's over now. ^^; I can forget about it till March/April anyway, 'cause that's when we'll get the test results. *shrugs* If I don't pass I'll just retake it next year.

On a happier note...*squee* Only 3 days left, [ profile] iniq! I can't wait to see you! ^________^ And Nee-Nee? Only 17 days! You know, being to able see you too so soon makes me so very happy. *beams*

But until then...o.O not sure how I'll get everything done. I have uni every day, plus I'm working more hours than usual, which means I'm hardly ever home. And my room looks like a disaster area. >.<.! I'm lucky I can still see the some places...*snerk*

I also need the rest of my Christmas mailing done as soon as possible. ^^; The Japanese test kinda put a stop to my well organized plan. -.- And now I'm behind on things. As every year. >_> Oh well....

Oh, and [ profile] merith? *smooooooooch* Thanks for the card! It is lovely. ♥

Nihongo Nouryoku Shiken - Japanese Proficiency Test - TOMORROW!

I think it's time to panic now.


[Edit] I Disney's Tarzan soundtrack! [/edit and back to studying]
haraamis: (Wufei - sensual)
Back online! well, at least technically....*cough*

I'm at my parents' house right now and internet is wonky as hell... we don't know why yet, but it seems that our DSL modem decides to randomly reset itself all the time....-.-
Right now it's working, so there's hope that it will stay like this for a while. *crosses fingers*

But! That is why I missed [ profile] alleyprowler's birthday yesterday. >_> so,

HAPPY belated BIRTHDAY, [ profile] alleyprowler! I hope it was a good one! ^_^

On the computer front: It turned out that I had to completely reformat my computer. Everything we tried to fix it (like de-and reinstalling certain programs etc) seemed to make it worse >.<. And yes, that would be the new computer-.- But at least it works now without a problem. So far. *cough* Time will tell.

Anyway, I am - surprise, surprise *snerk* - really busy at the moment. Homework, studying Japanese, practicing the songs I'm singing in church next week, and trying to get Christmas cards and presents ready to send out.
Talking of Christmas cards, if you haven't done so yet, please go look at THIS POST, and see if there's anything that concerns you (*pointed look at [ profile] lavenderfrost, [ profile] yuukihikari, and [ profile] tralla) or if you would like to receive a Christmas card and haven't given me your address yet.

Also, I feel the urge to make new icons...but I really don't have time for that. Woe... because even if I'm procrastinating on the Japanese study front, actually /doing/ something else makes me feel bad. -.-


On completely different note, this year's fall is more than wonderful. Nice weather almost every day, exceptionally warm and nice, and the colors are stunning! ^____^ Makes me happy.

haraamis: (uh...)
...head full of things I shouldn't think about...

...start of the rainy season...

...kanji midterm exam tomorrow...

...I'm in a really weird mood...

...I should update more often...

...I really have to clean my room...really, really, really....

...and I should stop reading Naruto fanfic...

There. That's all.

*slinks off*

*panics* ACK!

Don't expect to see much of me until it's over.

Sitting in the common room at the school - thank god for wireless LAN. I should be doing homework and I will right after I wrote this. Lots of vocabulary to learn...o.O;

Aside from that... ^____________________^

My host family is really nice. They talk to me, they drag me from one place to the other, they feed me delicious Japanese food.....*grin* ... I thought I might lose weight while being here....ah. no. no way in hell..... *snickers*

I seem to be very lucky when it comes to host families...*beams*

However, I am a little tired of hearing the "oh, you speak really well" when I know I'm not... *narrows eyes* and no comments from the peanut gallery. Yes, you know who you are.

This is not English. English is easy. This is not. The struggling for words and expressions is rather frustrating....but that's why I'm here, ne? I know I'm improving, but, god, is it ever sloooooooow......-.-"

And of course, I got the mandatory "do you have a boyfriend"-question.... *snort* and yes, when I answered "no", the immediate reaction was "why not?" *throws up hands in the air in frustration* How the hell should /I/ know??.... *rolls eyes*

Yes, but apart from that I'm a happy, happy girl. *grin*

Still haven't found a place to buy postcards, though....*scratches head*

oh, yeah, and bookshops are evil. very, very evil. *firm nod*

all right. Homework now. *is a good student* XD

Ja ne.

*highly amused*

I'm FREE!!

Exams are over and done with! *laughs happily*

I'm pretty tired, but tomorrow I can sleep as long as I want! Yay....

Now, I can do all the stuff I didn't have the time for over the past couple of weeks:

sleep, watch anime, clean my room, watch anime, sleep, write, sleep, watch anime, draw, go out, watch anime.....

haraamis: (thoughtful)
Yesterday, I found by accident the really pretty song that one of the celestials sings in episode 22 of Ayashi no Ceres.

I absolutely love this song and it almost makes me cry every time I listen to it. There aren't a lot of songs which do that.....

And still, I have to listen to it over and over and over again....

Tomorrow, I'm having the last exam, and I'll go and try studying for a while when I'm done writing this, but I'm so exhausted that I don't even really care anymore.

Today's exam did not go well at all, which I know I have to blame on myself entirely. It's my own fault for procrastinating and not starting earlier learnig all that stuff, eventhough I KNEW I would never get it done in time if I started too late.

Oh, well, I can't change it anymore....

Ack ack ack!!!

*runs in, panicked*

Exams are starting Tuesday!


I'm not ready yet!

And I can't concentrate.... *cries*

*hurries back to studying, muttering and cursing books, school, exams, and then herself for being lazy*

warm, warm, warm, HOT!!

Geez, the weather just remains the way it has been over the last (almost) two weaks: HOT!!

we've had an average temperature of 30°C (~90°F) since the Sunday I got back, with a high of 34/35°C (95°F) today...

Now, I don't mind high temperatures at all, but it's not exactly the best weather for studying, which I HAVE to do...*grumbles*

However, I did take a nice little swim today in the river close to my house, which was very refreshing!

Nothing else is new on this side of the Atlantic Ocean, except for the fact that my final exams are approaching frighteningly fast!!!! GAH!
I'm not ready yet!

*starts panicking*

I need to study, but it's just too damn hot!

*flopps back on her bed, resignating*

I think I should go to bed....-_-"

Yay, I got a new toy!!!

*looks around and raises eyebrow*

No, it is NOT a sex toy....

I bought a "wordtank" e.g. an electronic English - Japanese dictionary... it is so much easier to look up words and Kanji now, and it's a fun thing to play with!

*sighs with pleasure and winks*

See, it's (almost?) as good as a sex toy...

The weather has been really hot the last few days.... 28-30 degrees!! (in the 90s for metric-illiterates *grins*)...

*fans herself*

oof...time to get some work done...
haraamis: (Default)
*slumps back in chair*

I finally got all 5 translations done that are due for next week.

So university can start now, I'm ready...*grins*

And I'm going to bed...e_e zzZ
