Kanagawa fireworks show ~_~  
On Sunday, I caught up with Adele (fresh from China), Alexis, and some of their friends and family to see the local fireworks show!

Well, local for me, anyways! =^-^= My new place is only a few train stations away from the river where they held the fireworks festival. =^-^= Yay!!

I hadn't been to see any fireworks festivals (花火大会, "hanabi taikai" in Japanese) in a few years!! Last year, I was just too busy to go, with work and whatnot. ^-^ So I'm glad that I had the chance to go out this time. It would have been nicer if M had came, but what can you do? ^^;

Me and Adele-- doesn't she look great in her yukata? (I was wearing something different, lol..)

Doraemon fireworks!

And I put them all together into one big picture... XD That was fun!

Sorry that I haven't updated much.. I've been so tired, I can't seem to get anything done. I wonder if it has something to do with my ITP? I've never felt this chronically tired, EVER. So weird. I used to wake up completely awake after about 6 hours of sleep, but recently it's been stretching to 9 before I feel rested, and then I get tired during the day, too. I try not to go outside a lot, but sometimes you have to, to get things done. It's not even that hot (in the 90s, which is nothing), but it's SO humid (over 50% every day). Maybe that's it, but I never felt this tired when I was in my apartment that didn't have a/c. Weird... Well, I have an appointment at the hospital in two weeks (darn doctor went on vacation and he is the only blood specialist ^^;;), so we will see!!

PS: I'll post more as soon as I finish up the new blog design! And get Adsense working again. >.>;;

PS: Does anyone know anything about the anime Ojarumaru? As in, where it's foreign fans might hang out online? (If there are any)

Awesome photos! Especially your own creation, the last photo! I already saw some in your Japanese blog!
I still haven't managed to go to a Japanese firework festival, although I really wanted to see one sooo badly ;o;

Sorry to hear about your recent health troubles, but it can also be your body telling you to take it easier since you lead such an active life, or it could just be you needing that much sleep.

I love your fireworks pictures, especially the heart-shaped one. It must have been quite a sight to behold. Such beautiful colors!

Anyway, I wish your visit to the hospital to be filld with answers rather than more questions (here in Canada, it's almost always that).

Keep it up and hang in there. I'm sure your lover will take good care of you :)

Hello Jamie,
Sorry to bother but I just really wanted to say how much I admire you.
I'm a girl and I'm 15 (I'm not English so I apologize for any mistakes) and I share the exact same dream as you, well not exactly the same because I'm not sure about what I want to do with my life, but one thing I know, I want to live in Tokyo, and your blog me want it even more!
I'm an art student and I'm also learning japanese, so as you can see reading your blog is very inspiring.
And maybe some day you'll be the one reading my blog or lj about life in Tokyo ^^In the meantime I'll continue reading yours!
Beijinhos e muitas felicidades!

I'm in Tokyo right now actually too but, I have to say the HEAT actually drains A LOT of strength. T_T;; I can't stay out in the heat without sweating more than 10 minutes. *sigh* Alas. Well, I hope you feel better.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on August 27th, 2010 12:42 am (UTC)
That's right-- I keep forgetting to ask for your contact info! ^-^ How long are you staying? We should get together while you're here!
現実逃避shiroro on August 27th, 2010 01:57 am (UTC)
I'm only here for 2 weeks. ^^; I'll LJ note you my phone number in Japan. But if you're busy and tired I don't want to force you out n'stuff! Rest up while you can!
現実逃避shiroro on August 27th, 2010 01:59 am (UTC)
oh dear I can't send you LJ notes. LOL
Umm what's your e-mail? XD Or you can just note me your number or something and I'll contact you or something! Whatever is easier for you~

looks like it's called Prince Makaroo over here... released on Crunchyroll...
There are facebook pages, so I'd guess that's the best place for you to start.

Hope the weather cools for you soon. at'll make you feel a bit better.

amazing pics! yeah, for me, fireworks and the festivals that accompany them are the one best thing about Japanese summers. But the weather is terrible.
