The difference a day makes ♪♪♪  
When I walked out of my 'main' job yesterday, I couldn't stop smiling. It's because... it's OVER! I will never again have to return to that place. Aaaanyways, OWARIMASHITA!! ♥ I'm free free free!!

It wasn't all that bad. As in, it's a good job. Decent pay for the amount of time that you put in, and ever so easy. But it was not for me, and I found myself come to resent it gradually, especially during the last of the three years that I worked there. I am happy, happy, HAPPY to move on! It's kind of amazing, the transformation in my attitude that appeared as soon as I was able to let go! One job less and two richer, the future is looking good!

Speaking of which.. yesterday after I got out, I went straight to meet a few people that I am going to be working with. It looks like I'm definitely going to be writing something professionally quite soon--yey! ^O^ More TBA :D

After that great meeting and a really great new experience, I went to a preliminary meeting for my baito in Akihabara, and with the coworkers that I just adore, I was very light and fluffy, and felt more like myself than I have in more than a year. Add that to the discoveries that I've made about what makes me happy this year, and somehow... I feel like I'm a tiny bit closer in discovering who I really am, deep down inside. Who I am without the ego, as Eckhart Tolle would put it. Speaking of which, I read the first few chapters of his book, A New Earth, because of all of the hype surrounding it. It's an interesting book, in the way that it points out completely logical things, in the way that it makes them sound like new, revolutionary ideas. The things that he's writing about are many of the same things that I've came to realize myself this last year. I hope to have the time to finish it soon.. (as soon as I finish A Feast for Crows, I'll get cracking at it.) Then maybe I can recommend it to others... ^-^

So, it really is amazing the difference that one or two events can make in your life... ^___^ I would say that, for me, yesterday is evidence that if you take the right steps, you can really change your life! I feel a little bit like I should have known this already, but.. ^^;; It never hurts to remind yourself just how much you can do in your life *musters up confidence from somewhere*!

Well... also, I want to mention that I did something AWESOME. I started a running program!! Seriously!! Me!! I cound never run before. There is something dangerously wrong with my breathing, and stairs and the like have always been pretty tough. But somehow, this is a program that I can do! I DID IT!!! I feel so accomplished, and though it was really hard, I feel so good! ♥ Just wait, I will be able to run miles one day!!

Oh, and I'm also going to start volunteering sometime in the next month or two. I am just hinging on finding the right organization, which isn't as easy as it sounds.. If anybody has any suggestions, let me know! ^o^ I'd like to do something involved with hunger/poverty/the environment. Really, something that will help people feel better directly. I've been meaning to do this for a while, actually, but it was watching Oprah's new tv show, The Big Give, and hearing about Drew Barrymore's World Food Programme project that really inspired me to get up and do something!! None of this sitting on my butt anymore!! My favorite actress has been working hard, while I've been doing not a thing for others. So this year, with the new and improved me, comes a new and improved world, even if it's just in one tiny way. It's a start!!! ♥

This is my 'studio'.. ^^ Or, where I would ideally sit down and do artwork and a lot of my creative things. ^_^ My computer is in here. Notice how there is no art desk, though.. ;o; Donate monies to help me buy a desk? ;o; Okay, I'm just kidding, but one day I hope that I'll have enough money to get one.... Note the new and completely gorgeous carpet.. I'm so happy to have a carpet, finally!!! ;o; <3<3<3

Nessie the photogenic. ^_____^ She is currently playing with Melissa's kitty, Kyu-chan. They get along so well now ^___^

This is the other member of my small family: Miaka the plant. ^___^ (same intelligence level? ^^) She's been a little bit of problems being eaten by Nessie, but I moved her to a new place so that she's a little bit safer and has the chance to heal #^__^# *luvluv*

Miaka's new friends, Amiboshi and Suboshi.. They're little peach-blossom branches that I got from the train station for free on Monday, which was Hime-matsuri! (a celebration for girls of a certain age ^^) I'm not sure if they're supposed to flower, or if they're going to live long, but I hope so!!

Special feature on my camera. ^___^ It's a pretty lame feature actually, but it looks kind of... interesting? ^^;;

More Nessie baby! =D

I really like this portrait close-up ^___^


Awwwww ^_^

She loves the outside, but isn't allowed out! It's the first time that I've had an indoor-only cat. But it's kind of a must in Tokyo. -_-;;

Mwahahaha, devil kitty!

I've looked better, but it's late now... =D HELLO!!

Which picture do you like the best? ^^

Otsukaresama deshita~ Nessie's gotten so big since I last saw her! I was actually just thinking of running in the shower today ^^ That running program looks really good. How long have you been doing it?

I've just started this week. ^__^ I'll be going on my third time tonight (since it was raining last night I couldn't go). You should give it a try, I bet you could do it! ^O^
