Filming and writing and moving and...  
Yesterday, I had filming for the 5th and 6th episode of my kid's tv series.. It was chilly, but otherwise the weather was nice and it was pretty fun! Because we started at 6 am in Roppongi, they put me up in a hotel nearby overnight. So that was interesting! It was the first time that I've stayed over in a hotel in Tokyo.. And we went some AMAZING places!

Speaking of which, my tv show also started airing yesterday!! It's playing throughout Japan on Asahi Newstar every Saturday from 10:15-10:30am. It's a 15 minute long show dedicated to introducing kids to different cool places in Tokyo. There's a huge learning curve and my japanese isn't so good nor am I used to the camera, but I'm doing my best! I'd better get used to it! More information here: http://www.asahi-newstar.com/program/popnpress/

I also had to suddenly move last week.. It's a long story, but basically I wasn't able to stay in my house anymore (it was very sudden), and so I had to find a new place. I'm staying in a temporary place in Kichijoji, until I can find and afford a nice apartment. But it's going to mean pretty much starting over when it comes to all of my furniture, etc. I guess that's not so bad. They're only things, and I can replace them all eventually. I kept the things that are most important to me, and I found out who some of my real friends are. So it's not entirely a bad situation, even if it's uncomfortable. Trials are where one's true character comes out, right?

That took up a lot of my time (and I'm so sore!!), plus my work for Asahi weekly, and a million and one interviews.. From sometime this week, I'll be back in the manga studio. I really want to work hard on it, and on my own manga... GANBARU!!

PS: I love the earth ♥

おめでとう☆ I don't get that channel, so when will you get DVDs of it? XD? I want to see this, fufufu! Hope you are getting settled in your new place. I guess it's pretty hard to find space in there to draw, though, huh...

LOL Well you know what it looks like, and I haven't had a chance to unpack all of my art supplies yet, so.. well that explains that. XP

I'm sure that I'll get DVDs before I move again, so I should play them at my housewarming party! =D But we can watch them earlier, sure. ^^

You're optimism never ceases to amaze me. There should be more people like you in the world. Good luck with finding a new place~!

I want to see your show!!! And I'm sure you'll be able to get over the whole learning curve! You can do it!

I hope you find an awesome, new place soon! I can't imagine how I would react if I had to suddenly move but I can say I wouldn't take it as well as you appear to have!

I hope you have enough time to relax every now and again. ♥
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 5th, 2009 02:46 am (UTC)
Oh, I didn't take it as well as it might seem from reading this. But it will be a new start for me, so to speak, and hopefully it can lead to better things for me.

Just... what happened?!

(And K has my boxes, right? Please tell me K has my three remaining boxes.)

What happens with bills, too? Were they paid off? Do I send you the money or do I send it to Lindsay?

What's going on? D:
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 5th, 2009 03:29 am (UTC)
Well, Lindsay suddenly told me she was moving and I was kind of screwed since I didn't have a place to stay or time to look (I was stuck in the studio and of course don't have enough money for a new apartment), so I arranged for a guest house for a month or two so that I can look for a new place. We're still sorting out things with the house though. (Or, mostly me.. I have to call a place and get them to take all of the furniture but I haven't had time)

We paid off the bills up to last month, but Lindsay said she was paying for all of her bills for this month by paying double then, so the rest are in my hands. So go ahead and send it to me and I'll take care of them. I'm glad that nothing was shut off at least.

I'm sorry that you had to move out so suddenly but I hope that you are ok. ♥

I know that you will make a big hit in all your projects :3

oh wow Jamie, you amaze me every time I read stuff from you. I'm so very proud of you and all the many wondrous things you accomplish. it's all very inspirational!
keep up the great work chica! and sorry to hear about your sudden home woes :(
ps. I hope you can maybe upload something from your show on youtube for us non-japan natives to see someday. japanese kid shows were always my favorite thing to watch out there, hehe

Having just moved... It sucks :(

After moving so many times, I've had to throw away a LOT of personal stuff. It's all just 'stuff' in the end, though.

The important things can't be thrown away. :3 ♥

I hope you find a new place soon.

Congrats on everything! You are such an inspiration.
