Bai bai Ale!! Huh what? Everytime everyday everything, kotoba ni  
Bai bai miyuchan!! See you this fall, I hope!! We went out to karaoke the other day as a goodybe party, so to speak. It was really fun! They have Viking Horn from Tenimyu in Big Echo now, as well as Lion from Macross F! Yaay for Lion, though I butchered it.. Of course. This is me after all! I am still mada mada da ne on singing.. *sigh*

I am busy working on my.. employment project (#3). WISH ME LUCK!! I really need a lot of support so that I don't fall apart. I just hope for some little good thing to come of this application. Just one, that's all I want... omg. I guess that I've never wanted a job that I applied for as much as I want this one.. (something that I actually look forward to instead of dreading and doing just to make money... it's a step in the right direction if I had a shot!)

I've gotten more serious about getting better at Japanese, so for listening practice I listened to my first BL drama two nights ago, courtesy of mizukiaya.. OMG what have you done to me? It's called この罪深き夜に. And there is something distinctly odd about listening to a drama while you are riding your bike around midnight through the dark, nearly-deserted back streets of Tokyo. Don't do it. I just might have maybe kept running my bike off of the road. And then add the whole sex thing.. When you are listening to a guy on your mp3 player asking another guy on your mp3 player to "put it in.. please. I want you in me..", well... uh. It's really distracting. o.o;; *coughs* Oh Japan, you make the strangest products, I swear. Gay sex on your headphones! Call now! =D;; I had a hard time paying full attention to it while I was going, but it helped to pass the time quickly and get my exercise done and japanese study at the same time! XD Bike-riding is my replacement for running since my knee hurts a lot when I run now, and part of Employment project #2 is getting an awesome body. =D (there are currently 3 Employment Projects in the works and some side stuff)

I've also gotten somehow back into Anime. I'm not sure what happened, but I think that it started with Anime Expo. Cosplay, and then I came back and watched show after show. I caught up recently with Itazura na Kiss(♥♥) and when I have a chance I'm watching Junjou Romantica, the Prince of Tennis OAVs, and Vampire Knight. Then there is also my weekly dose of Macross Frontier and Slayers Revolution. ^^ I need to catch up on Mahou ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora (what a mouthful!) too.

My nerd is showing... oh no! ^^;;

****Okay seriously, how many Prime Ministers is Japan going to go through in a year?? ^^;; But the internet meme going around is awesome. =D Anata to wa Chigaun desu! mwah☆

Best of luck to you on the application~!
And on learning about Gay Sex conversations. :3

Also~ Don't mean to be a bother, but will you be posting those contest requests on dA~? o 3o
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on September 7th, 2008 05:25 am (UTC)
Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about them. But I haven't had the time to finish them (except for one). I'll be posting them here, but probably not to DA.

Nah, if he didn't want to stay then he definitely shouldn't have. But I don't know why so many people are resigning. It's as if nobody wants to lead Japan. I'll do it!!

Oh, I love that chocolate cream roll in your last picture! I only stopped eating it because I was afraid of putting on weight. xD

VAMPIRE KNIGHT! It is amazing and so much love.... even if it is a stupidly cheesy show. But I enjoy it and love it soooo much~

aww good luck with your employment project! ^o^/

Hey dear,

it's soon time for me to sell tons of my stuff I've bought here in Japan so far. Simply because my appartment is too small. It might be too time-consuming, but I still wanna try it. If it's really not working out well, then I just bring back all the shit XD to Mandarake.

Problem is that I have NEVER ever sold anything outside from Germany and being in Japan now doesn't really help. I know that you've sold tons of things already and that you are more than familiar with how to do it.

I do have a PayPal account that is connected to my German bank account. I don't know if it would be a good idea to get it connected to my Japanese bank account instead - especially concerning fees etc.
If you receive money, you have to pay a fee, right? (Never used PayPal as seller so far, so I have NO clue).

Also for shipping stuff, any rec where I might find a good overview about serviced, shipping costs. Anything you can recommend?
Where do you usually get packages, wrapping stuff etc.?

Anything else I should consider?
Sorry for the long comment. Hope you can help me out a little here.

Btw. you definitely should watch Junjou Romantica! It's really amusing, cute and ... waaaiii~ ;p
Gawd, I need to catch up with various animes, too! Timeee! Gimme some timmeee~
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on September 8th, 2008 03:15 am (UTC)
The first thing that I would suggest is to buy a scale, and then check out this site for postage: http://www.post.japanpost.jp/english/index.html

But you need to know what everything weighs first, hence the scale. ^^

For paypal, I have a business account (so that I could get a debit card, which is the only way that I can access money). Regular accounts don't have fees, but you can only receive up to a certain amount. For me, I do have fees like crazy and it gets a bit annoying, but there's no way around it.

I usually buy my packages from a 100yen shop. It's the cheapest that you're going to find. ^^

And that should do it! ^^ It's far better to sell online than take it back to Mandarake. Although it's a lot more hassle. XD

I'm loving the Itazura na Kiss anime. It's a pity the manga stopped halfway... I want to slap Irei half the time though lol

Junjou is one of the few bl/yaoi titles I like, and it's not too angsty! (as yaoi anime tends to be). Vampire Knight is quite a decent adaptation of the manga, although the first season was really short. Looking forward to Junjou and VK season 2 ^_^

It's great that you're getting into so many anime now. I need to catch up with ItaKiss. I left off when they started college. But man, you should seriously watch the TW drama. It's hilarious and keeps to the manga version for the most part!

Also, agree with you on the BL drama being distracting. haha. I listen to them when I draw or write when I'm at home. And when I'm on the train...so sometimes I wanna burst out laughing or crying depending on the scene and type of drama it is but I can't. XD

Good luck with the job hunting!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on September 8th, 2008 03:16 am (UTC)
But the drama... Irie's hair. It's so wrong, I am having a hard time getting over it enough to watch it. I couldn't even consider the Japanese one at this point. ;O; Why oh why do they have to ruin the character designs all the time? Hair color is so simple and easy to change!!

WISH ME LUCK!! I really need a lot of support so that I don't fall apart.

Well, it goes without saying - GOOD LUCK! But you should remember, that life is random, and everything that happens to you is for the best ;) So, cheer up, and thanks for all the fish (here, fish means blog entries ;) ).

When you are listening to a guy on your mp3 player asking another guy on your mp3 player to "put it in.. please. I want you in me..", well... uh. It's really distracting.


.. watch out hinoai, traffic sign ahead! ..

Bike-riding is my replacement for running since my knee hurts a lot when I run now, and part of Employment project #2 is getting an awesome body.

Eating right will help too ;)
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on September 8th, 2008 03:17 am (UTC)
I'm eating pretty well, yep! All part of the losing weight thing.. though it's hard to eat well and still be able to afford it..
