I would like to say thank you to everyone who wished me to feel better. I can really use the wishes, though things are already looking up.

Yesterday some good things and some bad things happened. I am really upset over the tactlessness that was displayed yesterday at work by an AAM. As my roommate said, they are in that position because they simply don't have the social skills to function in their own native country. I think that really holds true for Jill. So.. part of me wants to say 'fuck it,' and not go to work today (or any more). But, it's my job. So I will go. Plus, there is something that I want to save up for (well, a few somethings), so I need the money. I'd been planning to quit eventually, (though still stay in Japan until my visa is up in September) but I am not really in the position to do so until I find another job. So... the AAM is an asshole (and I am not fond of one of my ATs), they're not the be all and end all of the job, and I'll continue to be a responsible (though I must admit, slightly less enthusiastic) employee. Theeeeen.... I will say 'fuck them' when I am financially sound. Sounds good to me. =D

And you know, I don't really like cussing. ^^;;

Heh, you know, I was thinking about it earlier. I would LOVE to be back in Seattle, but I DON'T want to leave Tokyo until next September. I have friends here whom I would miss SO MUCH and I enjoy it here a lot. It's like living a dream, in a way. Or close to it. What I think I'm going to look into over this next month, though, is going freelance and doing artwork. Somehow I have to figure out how to do that online.. and I may have to get an international plan on my cell phone.. which actually might be a good idea if the rates are decent. On my phone card I end up paying $10/hour. Ew. But it's charged up and I can call people now! =D

Okay, now for the happy things. =D I chatted with <3 Trey, Kyo, and my sister on the phone yesterday! Yey! It was my sister's birthday on the 24th. I forgot my brother's earlier on.. there was just so much going on. ^^; I'm a bad sister. Please forgive me! I also went to the bank yesterday and requested an international bank card so that I can send it to my mother to withdraw money in the states. =D Which means.. I can put money into my Wells Fargo account and actually buy things online! Yay! Among other things.. I was very proud that I was able to request something like this when the teller spoke as much english as I do japanese. ^_^ I feel accomplished. I am going to start taking classes in Japanese soon, because it's come to the point where I want to start super-learning. There are free classes in Yokohama on Tuesdays, so I may take them if I can. It's a long train ride....

So... yesterday was wonderful until the letdown at work. But, life goes on.... gotta get over it because I want to be happybouncy again. I will concentrate on happier things now. Like........... Shaman King!! O_O Two episodes down, 62 to go and I'm already feeling the potential addiction. Mmmmmmm, Yoh..... <333 It's a bit like Hunter x Hunter (one of my big obsessions!) combined with like... Digimon or Pokemon. You can't lose there! Mmmm, Yoh... wait, did I already say that?

Oh yeah.. and

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

(Elvy, be warned, I'm inviting myself to your dinner in spirit!!)

To celebrate, I'm reposting an old chibi picture. Because Chibis=luv! <3

cussing itself is such an amusing word through... i can't think of my canadian natives that would use the word, so i'm guessing it's more of an american thing?

sad to say, one of the few reasons i'm in university is to earn a degree just so i can go teach in japan o.0 I know there are agencies that you can go without one, but i'm worried i'll end up in some foreign ghetto peddling myself to overweight salary man... not that i'm even sure what a salary man is o.0

happy turkey day :)

Heh.. if you don't say 'cussing', what do you call it? O_o

It's sooooooooooo weird for me to hear "I go to university," or "I'm in university." It must be just an american thing, because that to me is incorrect grammar. And yet we have that specific phrase in our textbooks in NOVA. I keep correcting it to say "I go to a university." I brought it up to my coworkers, but they think that it's already correct grammar. I could say "I go to school," or "I go to college," but "I go to university" just sounds sooooooooo wrong. >.>;; I wonder if I'm the only one who feels that way.. O_o University to me is a place, whereas school or college is a duty... I think. O_o

i think we mainly opt to use swearing in place of cussing... cussing even seems like a swear word to me, probably because i'm not used to hearing it here.

where it really gets interesting is that the University of Toronto is actually made up of several smaller colleges... for example, i'm a Woodsworth College student o.0 Try figuring that one out! Generally though, actual distinct colleges provide more hands on training while universities handle theories, etc... we have some university/college joint programs through allow you to earn a uni degree and college diploma in one...

Anyways, back to writing a review for class... Cesar's going to give me the uke treatment tonight if he gets home and thinks i've been neglecting my homework o.0

I know of people that just sell on the street, try that. I heard American tourists go "hey that's some cool shiznit!" and they buy prints ^_^

I bought 4 prints from this guy XD

That chibi is so cute. You'll get loads of sold drawings and the likes if you do decide to sell them online, I have no doubt.

I'm glad you're feeling better and focusing on the good things. Taking classes on Tuesdays seems like a good idea. And if you want we could study it anytime you feel like it. I need to prepare and study a lot of Japanese so~ :3

I used to have the odd bad day at work there, but I would just keep reminding myself - I work to live, I don't live to work. In essence, you put up with the odd bit of crap at work so that you can have amazing adventures outside of work.

My girlfriend worked for Nova over there, and I think I can honestly say from her experiences with her management (both foreign and Japanese) they all really..... SUCK!
