...coming home and finding....

... a surprise present from [profile] belina ^_~ ♥ your best friend. ♥♥

And not just any present, but a so called "Schultüte" (large cornet of cardboard filled with sweets and little presents given to children in Germany on their first day at school)! :D :D

She made one for me, because I started started school again a few weeks ago (I'm not sure I mentioned it here, but I believe many of you saw it on facebook...)! how sweet is that?!

Thank you again, sweetheart, thank you so much!

And it was so pretty, too.... wanna see?

clicky click! )

I know I've been scarce again... but I dropped my computer broke a couple of weeks ago, and I had to send it in for repairs. I did get a replacement from the nice IT guy at work, but I didn't have my files or my programs, so I didn't spend a whole lot of time online...

I got it back now (and thank god my hard drive and data was all intact), but I've been busy with school, the big scout event that is coming up in November and other stuff, so...^^;;;

Talking of the big scout event... I'm actually off to camp for a week in a couple of hours where we're gonna create/paint the backdrop for the play, do rehearsals and other preparation for the event. It says there's WLAN at the place, but I'm not holding my breath. I do have to go into work on Thursday, but other than that I'll be at camp, fooling around with paint and brushes and plaster and other fun things... *grins* it'll be busy, but at least I get to spend the whole week in the same place as the boy ♥ ^_~

Anyway, gotta finish packing and cleaning and then off I am....

happiness is...

...a bowl of fresh, sweet blackberries ♥ )

so, yes, I'm back from my (amazing, but way too short) vacation at home in Wisconsin. I had the most WONDERFUL time, spent time with many people I love and always miss very much, swam in the pool and/or in a couple of lakes almost every day, sunbathed and relaxed, rummaged through garage sales, flea markets, and antique malls, did a lot of shopping in general (OMG, so much shopping.. XD duh! who am I kidding. it's always like that when I visit the States XD), even did some touristy things (Door County is SUCH a lovely place!), ate all the things I love so much but that we don't have here, and generally enjoyed the freedom and the warm (and sometimes very hot) weather, as it should be in summer XD!

I got back home Monday morning, unpacked a couple of things, went to a friend's place to celebrate August 1 (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SWITZERLAND! :D), went to work Tuesday morning, came home and pretty much crashed after unpacking a couple more things, unpacked more this morning before going to work... why yes, there's a pattern. XD I'm almost done now, though (except for laundry)...

I still need to sort through all the pics before I can show them off, which might take a little while (please poke me if I get lazy again and forget about it!). But I wanted to share something anyway, so I took some pics of tonight's dessert (part of it, anyway. XD)...I hope you enjoy these, too.

I really like pictures of pretty things that make me happy, so I might even start a series of "happiness is..." or something like that....*ponders*. maybe that's the motivation I need to get back on track on here again. ^^;;;

[hahaha... I didn't get around posting this on Monday (when I finally got home after 10pm), and totally forgot about it yesterday. ^^; so, you get it today...]

Monday morning, 10.30 am, and I'm sitting on the train back from a wonderful weekend in Frankfurt where [personal profile] iniq and I stayed at [personal profile] gwy's place.

Much fun was had...and what's about to come )

Awwwww! Just saw a couple of deer running across the field. Yes that needed mentioning. *smirk*

There are more things I should probably mention, but I'm running out of time and frankly, I also don't know where to start anymore. that's the thing with being absent from LJ for long amounts of time - you have so much to tell that you don't know what to say. ~.~

[Edit as of Wednesday morning] There IS something I have to mention! THANK YOU, [profile] merith, [personal profile] gundamnook, and [personal profile] ronsoftie for the lovely Christmas cards! ♥ ♥ ♥!
haraamis: (SPN - Jared - happy)
I think I kind of forgot to mention this....

the boy and I are going on a weekend escape to London. First time for me, too! ^___________^ *EXCITED*

be back on Tuesday (and probably drowning in work ....^^;)


...not dead...^_~

There is a softly snoring boy on my shoulder, twitching in his sleep occasionally and holding onto my arm as if he was afraid I would leave ♥♥♥!
There is also something weird/boring on tv because I can't reach the remote because of said sleeping boy. oh well.

it's good to be home. ^_^

however, I had a most lovely weekend in Munich with [personal profile] gwy, who I decided to visit spontaneously as I had an additional day off on Friday (my company moved to another part of Zurich and they decided to give us the day off while they did the major moving). We talked a lot and caught up on many things, including loooooooooooooads of Merlin stuff. *laughs* We had yummy food every day (sushi, blueberry pancakes, fresh dates, and butterkeks ice cream being the highlights), had a most wonderful walk in the English Garden and an old cemetery, and did everything to ignore the nasty weather that held up for most of the weekend.

Munich needs to be closer, so I can see gwygwy more often. *firm nod*

I also got to meet [personal profile] chaosmaka and [personal profile] ronsoftie and spend a fun afternoon with them ^______________^ *waves* hey ladies! More time next time, yes?

And I met up with a really old friend of mine. We've known each other since we were about two years old but lost touch over the last couple of years (it was actually ten years ago that I met her in person), and it was great to finally see her again and catch up on ...the last ten years. XD

We are not mentioning the insane amount of money I spent.. but hey, new stuff! *grins*

Anyway, it's back to work tomorrow, so bed time now. *sleeeeeepy*

first entry...

...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*

Happy Holidays!

I hope that all of you who celebrate it had wonderful holidays! ♥♥

I got home tonight from spending the last couple of (great!) days with my family and the boy and his family, and was greeted with a bunch of mail in my mailbox. ^_^

So, first of all, a huge thank you for absolutely lovely Christmas cards to: [livejournal.com profile] okaasan59, [livejournal.com profile] meritjubet, [livejournal.com profile] btamamura, [livejournal.com profile] damoyre, [livejournal.com profile] whimsy_chan, and [livejournal.com profile] just_ruth!

[livejournal.com profile] damoyre, thank you so much for the additional postcard *beams*. I've actually been to Philadelphia, though it was before I joined lj or I would have let you know. ^_~ I'll just have to go back one day, I guess.
[livejournal.com profile] gwy, thankyouthankyouthankyou for the beautiful earrings *glomps and smooches* I totally love them and I think I'm gonna wear them tomorrow night. ^_~

Tomorrow is gonna be insanely busy with preparations for our trip to Helsinki as we're leaving on Sunday around noon. There are still a couple of things I need to buy and stuff to take care of before I leave... *busy busy bee* and then there shall be packing, of course. *sigh* I hate packing.
And tomorrow night I'm gonna go out dancing with [livejournal.com profile] belina and a couple of friends. ^___^ no chance of getting bored, you see.

Anyway, I'm not sure if I'll manage to update before I leave, but I certainly will when I get back from Finland.

You guys take care, be good, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
haraamis: (SPN - Jared - happy)
So, I think I kinda forgot to mention that I was going to Innsbruck (Austria) this weekend to visit [livejournal.com profile] iniq. ^^;

Anyway, I'm here now. ^____________^

Got here last night, and since I'd been up since very early that morning and [livejournal.com profile] iniq had to get up early for work today, we didn't do much but catch up a bit, discuss The Secret Plan, and then go to bed early.

This morning we got up at about the same time and I brought her to the bus station so I'd know where to take the bus from later. Then I went to the supermarket and got me some breakfast and pizza for tonight.
Went home, had breakfast (yum!) while watching the latest Bleach episode (all caught up now! whoo-hoo!).

After that (and I think we need a big yay! for that :P) I was good and studied for a couple of hours before going out to go shopping (double yay! XD).

Around 5 I went to [livejournal.com profile] iniq's work place to pick her up (although I had a little bus adventure on the way there - the first bus passed me by and on the second I missed to get off in time *cough*), and home we went, loaded with empty boxes for her move later this month.

And now we're sitting in her toasty little room (♥♥♥!), ready to immerse ourselves in bad movies, cool tv series, hot men, chips and salsa, pizza, almdudler, and all the other good stuff we do/watch/eat when I'm here. ^___^

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.

I don't wanna go home. T________T
haraamis: (SPN - Jared - happy)
First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SUZU! ♥!
*smooch* I hope you have a wonderful day. ^_^


As for anything else...here be bullets for you )

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)


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....^^;;;;


Anyway, off to uni now.

home sweet home

So, I'm back home. I'm a bit sad my trip is over, but it also feels good to be home. Well, except for the mountain of things I have to do within the next 3 weeks. But that's all right, I guess, since I've been basically slacking off for the past 4 weeks. ^^;

I came home to a load of mail, so a late THANK YOU for Christmas cards goes out to [livejournal.com profile] yuukihikari, [livejournal.com profile] meritjubet, [livejournal.com profile] hexadecimal00, and [livejournal.com profile] windsorblue. ^_______^

Also a big THANK YOU to everyone who made my trip such a wonderful experience. I had so much fun and I'm so happy I got to meet up with all of you. ♥ ♥!

Suitcases (and boxes) are mostly unpacked and laundry is done, too. Work tomorrow, so I'm leaving the taking down of Christmas decorations until the weekend.

Also? I need to get rid of some stuff A BIGGER CLOSET! >.<.

I'll figure it out on the weekend. Sleep now. e_e
haraamis: (me)
*sigh* I hate it when time goes by so fast.

It's my last day in San Diego with Kara and I sitting at the window, enjoying the view over the ocean one more time. It's totally different from the first time. The sea is rough and there's a lot of clouds. It looks like it's about to rain. Still beautiful, though.

I got back from visiting Muskrit yesterday night. Oi-Kay picked me up from the airport and took me out to dinner with some friends. Oh, was it ever nice. ^__^

While up in Berkeley I also got to meet [livejournal.com profile] nekofreak and [livejournal.com profile] ponderosa121 for a couple of hours. Fun fun fun.

And of course Muskrit. Oh Muskrit. ♥♥! ^_^ How am I going to miss storytime with Muskrit now that I have experienced it first hand? And muskrit chin hugs...*^_^*

We were going to spend the day in LA today, but it looks like it's going to be a slower day than anticipated as my left foot hurts as soon as I step on it. The doctor Kara's dad says it's tendonitis. Joy. -.-"

We're still gonna go up to LA, just a bit later and not for as long as planned. And then Kara's going to drop me off at [livejournal.com profile] windsorblue's where I'm going to spend the last two nights. Yay!

[Edit] Off to LA now!


Thursday, 10 January 2008 06:21 pm
haraamis: (happiness)


*cough* So, yes. I got safely to San Diego. ^_^ Kara is her usual lovely self and I'm very happy to be here. ♥♥

oh, and in about an hour we should be on the road to Tucson. *winks at [livejournal.com profile] lil_1337*

Yay, roadtrip! ^__^

Got here, with both flights a bit delayed, but with all my luggage!

Got hugged, cuddled, fed, and entertained, and now it's (finally) off to bed.

^______^ Aw, it's good to be home. ♥
haraamis: (whee!)
I'm leaving in 5 minutes! ^____________^

Now let's hope I won't get stuck at any airports because of snowstorms or the like. I'm also desperately hoping for all my luggage to get there with me. ^^;

*crosses fingers*

*grins* I'll see you when I get there.

omg, YES!
