Just a little post to say that I'm safely back home and that the 1 month I spent in Korea feels like a dream that never happened in reality...but I have PHOTOS to prove that it happened!

lol, I'm so weird.

I would love to blog more about my Summer School and how I explored Korea, both here and on my other blog, but I don't have much time. School's starting SO SOON and I have a ton of readings and boring (but important) administrative stuff to clear up.

><

So here's quick Hello~

And now Goodbye~

(I'm also SO behind on Shokura (only watched up to the Live Special) and also on everything else - where is SZ's new album!!! And Arashi has a new awesome song and single coming out?! Someone update meeeee T___T)

I have this weird habit of creating social accounts and then deleting them a few months (or even some years) later. For the 4th or 5th time, I've set up a new Twitter account. My username is @adreamingcat and I think this might be the twitter account that lasts HAHA so if anyone wants to add me, just tweet me~

I've been using the twitter mainly to follow updates from Menimi to get the passwords for the 99.9% episodes(: I've also followed a bunch of Arashi updates accounts and some YouTubers that I like!

Last Thursday, I caught Les Misérables for the first time! It was quite an experience! Because of my dance background, I've been to the theatre to watch ballets many many times. I've also watched a couple of music/symphony/enssemble performances. However this was my first proper musical experience and I really loved it!

I'm going to try to catch Wicked next time when it comes to town! However, musicals are soooooo much more expensive T___T My pockets hurt from what I paid to watch it but we did get pretty decent seats that weren't too far away from the stage. Would have been nicer if I could see their facial expressions though but oh....the $$$$ that I can't bear to spend
hazellexkiss: (Aiba(:)
Right, it's SUMMER VACATION finally!

I'm really loving Jun's new criminal lawyer drama 99.9%!!! This is actually the first lawyer drama that I've ever liked. I tried getting into Suits and some other Asian lawyer dramas but....I get bored of them pretty easily. I really like Jun's character here! I'm also so glad that there's no romance here, any hint of romance is all just for comedic effect so far...it's a great drama(:

Summer vacation! And I feel like a slug again. I just want to laze around the whole day...

Oh and I'll be going to Seoul for 1 month of summer school in July! It's going to be 1/3 study and 2/3 play! I'm kind of worried about money but hopefully things will work out! If anyone has suggestions on what to do in South Korea, do let me know! I don't know too much about South Korea and Korean things so I'm open to ideas/suggestions!
hazellexkiss: (Yellow Fuma)
So I need a yellow-clad Fuma to add some sunshine here HAHA

I've been spending a lot of time on this One Piece forum orojackson.com way too much recently. I need to control myself sigh. I need to study more.

I picked up a language module this semester and I hope that I can really learn this properly.

And here's a cheeky picture of Gaoyunxiang )

Okay first post of 2016! \(^▽^)/

Three things to update:

#1. I've recently been into a Chinese drama which doesn't happen very often. The drama is 芈月传 or Legend of Mi Yue. It's a historic drama which is totally my thing. I love shows that have have a historic setting. I love knowing more about history whether it's English, American, Chinese, Japanese or Spanish whatever. I love it. Documentaries are fine but I also love watching dramas. I love hearing them speak, looking at the setting and their costumes (✧∀✧).



I really admire Sun Li as an actress and watched her previous period drama 甄嬛传 or Legend of Zhen Huan where she was also the lead actress. I heard she was acting another period drama and was like okay, let's check it out.I also wanted to check it out because they were saying that the drama's ratings lost to the popularity of another korean period drama Empress Ki and wanted to support Sun Li.

And right now I'm about peisode 21 and I think the drama is pretty good. I like the story. The acting in general isn't as good as 甄嬛传 in my humble opinion but I promise that it gets better. I think it's because the story relied a lot on children actors/actresses in the earlier episodes which I always feel is kind of awkward.

I also want to mention one cute guy that really caught my eye (◕‿◕)

His real name is Gao Yun Xiang and he's already married to another actress. And he's so cute here: )


#2. SMAP is disbanding? What is going on? The news is really shocking and kinda sad. I'm just waiting to here more news now. It's really crazy to think that the possibility of a boyband disbanding is such big news in Japan. I get it. I get it that SMAP is HUGE. But it's still crazy.

#3. Finally catching up with the last few Shokura episodes of 2015 and can I say that I'm loving all the costume-equality between the members of Sexy Zone? (〃^▽^〃)

That's about it from me. I'm already in my first week of school and it's looking up. I'm also thinking about taking up Japanese seriously.

Waiting

Are you the type that arrives Early, On Time or 10 minutes late?

I'm the type that arrives early, then wait it out somewhere before meeting up with the others on time or late (if they're all late). I'm also the type that somehow ends up with a collection of friends who are always late.

When I was in grade school, I would get pretty mad. After a while I got used to it. Now it usually doesn't even bother me. So I guess this whole thing realky taught me the art of patience and waiting.

I'm not sure why I'm talking about this here. I'm just bored cuz I'm meeting my friends at 1pm, but here I am already at the right place when it's still 12:35pm.
hazellexkiss: (NINO)
Sigh,

I'm in a degree course that I don't enjoy substantially...but there are some things that I do like about this...

Like how there are many interesting opportunities available

How the school is small and sort of cozy. (while it can get claustrophobic at times)

I like some of the people that I have met.

Skills? Not sure. Confidence? Maybe. It can be argued that law school has instead shattered any shred of confidence that I had. Out of my shattered confidence, I now instead have a rather confident set of indifference. I no longer care that I'm not scoring well or not doing as well as my peers. I like what I like. I don't have to follow the crowd. I don't have to mix with people that I'm not comfortable with. If I prefer to be alone, then I will be alone. I don't have to go out for drinks with them.

Boys still are the creatures that only talk to me when they think I'm pretty or exotic. Give them a few months and they lose interest. They throw me aside like I was trash and go after the next pretty girl.

This post isn't making sense, now is it?

Whatever.

I want to listen to the new Japnoism CD. I want to buy the new album. I want to buy many things.

tired. even though I've already slept a lot. It's not a physical tired but a mental and spiritual one I think. I'm just tired of having to drag my feet to law school and back.

sigh. God help me.

I'M BACK

Alright, it's been FOREVER since I last posted. This was probably the longest break I took from the JE fandom (at least LJ-wise). I think I stopped checking on JE stuff since summer started and now it's properly FALL and we're heading into winter (Christmas is coming! but first, finals><)

By "break' I mean completely no checking on the LJ feed relating to any Arashi or Sexy Zone updates. I didn't download their tv shows or listen to their new music etc. Right now, I really miss Shokura, Sexy Zone Channel and VS Arashi. It seemed like there was a bet de Arashi recently too! This morning, everything changed when I decided to vist my LJ feed and I listened to Nino's Baystorm. GOSH, the new track that he played - ILOVEIT. It's from their new Japonism album so yeah I'll have to look around for it (if it's already out) over the next few days when I'm free.

Tbh, it's a rather strange time for me to get back into the fandom. I'm approaching finals steadily...and my laptop has broken down so there's no real point of downloading anything I suppose. Right now I'm using a tablet and I've downloaded a lot of school-related documents already. Do I really need that new Japonism album in here? Yes I do, We shall see. At the rate things are going, I might even find out that Sexy Zone has also put out a new single/album and gahhhhh

so yes, not a very good timing to be falling in love with JE again. But what to do? I miss the boys, their voices and personalities.

Also, I am aware of Riida's recent 'scandal' and my heart goes out to him. Seems like the girl has suffered some repercussions and I hope Riida is coping okay with everything.

Speaking of coping, I really wonder how Sou-chan is doing and whether he has made his mark yet?

Another point that I'm curious on the state of Nino's hair. The radio broadcast that I heard is definitely recent and he said that he hasn't gone to cut his hair and everyone keeps telling him to cut it. But he's resolved to not cut it when he doesn't have to (because of dramas or whatever). He even dwelt on the possibility of long hair! A long-haired Nino! Hahaha, will you really do that, Nino?

Alright, I should get back to work. I have mountains that need moving *rolls up sleeves*. Hopefully I'll update more and sometime soon too. Bye!
hazellexkiss: (polka shori)
But that doesn't mean that I have been neglecting my blog. I have been faithfully checking my feed page for all the yummy Arashi and Sexy Zone updates (a big thank you to those kind souls who share and upload stuff for other fans!)

Okay, so an update...

I'm coming towards the end of my second year in college. I'm finding the subjects more interesting this year. they arent very...career-worthy subjects tho...sigh. I hated last semester, and that was the one made up of THE most career-worthy subjects. BAH. I'm not sure where I'm going with this degree...but I'm sure I'll find out and nake up my mind by the time I graduate.

Okay, next update, I have an essay due on Monday, but I'm only 25% done. SIGH.

Moving on, I've downloaded so many sexy-zone and arashi related things but I haven't had time to watch them D:

Lastly, I'm a terrible author on fanfiction. I haven't updated since Christmas. BUT, I do have about 70% of the chapter done. I just didn't have time to finish it up. (sometimes, I'm also not in the mood) I want this one to be really long after the pathetic short snippets I released last time I updated. But yeah, last year was just terrible.

okay, that is about it. A long update on my life. Cheers.
hazellexkiss: (Nino :3)
I have an internship in about a week though.

So I'm definitely going to make this one week a great week.

A week of rest. I'm going to meet people who have time to meet me...or who make the time to meet me. If you don't bother making the time for me when I tried to make time for you, then nevermind us.

What's 7 years of friendship afterall?

Absolutely nothing aparently.

On to more wonderful and fun things this week!(:

Update.

hazellexkiss: (NINO)
in my previous post, I said I might have found buddies.
well it turns out.... )


In other news, I don't have much time. I'm supposed to be studying but:

  • I need to watch the Digitalian MAKING

  • I need to catch up on so many episodes on SZChannel that it's not even funny

  • I need to catch up on Shokura too

  • at this rate, i'll only be able to catch up after christmas

  • on a side note, I watched a bit of the Shokura episode in Osaka the other day! Who else remembers Richard from Sexy Zone's Concert video????? I always wondered who he was! So now I know he's a Kansai Junior! And he's pretty funny! I wonder if him and Fuma are close ><

  • Kishi IMY ):

  • I do like Otoko Never Give up though! Even though there's only 3 of them):

  • I miss marius and Sou-kun

  • the digitalian album is...taking some time for me to love. but I love more than half the songs already!

  • It's not that I hate techno

  • I like techno, unless it's too noisy

  • I think Disco Star is too noisy

  • I love ZERO-G

Okay.

Toodles!

Stressed,

School has started. I probably never mentioned, but this is my second year in University.

This is only the second week of school, and I am stressed. Already.

There's too much, so click here if you want to read my...semi-rant. )

I don't know how things will work out...but I'm hoping for the best.

At times like this, looking at people like Fuma, Kento, Shori and Sho-kun motivates me. Especially Fuma...

how can they juggle the life of an idol, the life of a college student and the life of a teenager at the same time?
how can they get good grades, sing so well, dance so well, remember all the words to a song, the moves to a dance?
How do they manage to do radio broadcasts, variety programmes, talk shows, performances and concerts while at the same time having to meet the demands of school, of friends and family and a social life at the same time?

I don't understand it.

But I guess it's the resolve they have. They know what they want. They want to be an idol. They want to have a degree. To have both, they are willing to work hard.

In contrast, I don't know what I want. I don't know what I'm working hard for. And therefore, I'm bummed out and flopping around, while they are shining so brightly....

Sighs.

Yesterday was one of those days when I felt so so bummed out. I was really down because I failed my driving tes...I just felt like a complete failure and I was just thankful I didn't tell many people that it was my test that day.

imagine the embarrassment.

I'm terrible):

but anyway, the reason I'm posting this here, is to say that Sexy Zone has managed to cheer me up(:

on the way home, I listened to QR Zone. I listened to last week's and the one on the week before. I don't listen regularly so yepp, I had to catch up. Listening to them just lifts my spirits...even if it was just a little. It helped me to not focus on my test.

Then when I reached home, I watched Sexy Zone Channel ^^ They went fishing~ Even if they didn't catch any fish, I'm still sure that you guys "Mottemasu"! Even if the fish can't see it, us fans definitely can. You are all so adorable and dashing.

ILY.
hazellexkiss: (Shori)
I'm not sure if I'm up to date with all the Arashi and SZ stuff...

Is it me or does it seem like there isn't much going on with the both of them?

The latest hype about Arashi was about Arafes2013. And SZ...HMMMMM....the Making of KQJ?

There seems to be a lull of some sort...at least for me.

And in this period of time, i've been jumping from one thing to another.

- watching Ranma 1/2
- writing fanfiction
- reading manga in japanese
- watching this 76 or 78 episode long Chinese  period drama (it was AWESOME, it's called Zhen Huan Zhuan!)
- watching YouTubers and admiring their exciting lives

Sigh.

Fickle me.
hazellexkiss: (NINO)
Like, you know when you're sad...just because?

I was supposed to do a lot of work today...but I ended up lazying the day away.

The day's mostly gone now...

And....

I just feel like....

THIS )

Sigh, and I still have to make dinner.

LOST

I suddenly have ALOT to do.

I'm quite overwhelmed T.T I don't know where to start.

Watching Shokura will have to wait D;
hazellexkiss: (tanned Shori)
First of all, Happy 2014~

2014 has started with a lot of Sexy Zone L-O-V-E. ^^

Watching Shokura just to see them! AND I AM SO EGG-CITED FOR SEXY SECOND! Congratulations and We gotta go sound AWESOME :D

Oh, and when Shori finally won the rock,paper,scissors game! HIS EXPRESSION OF PURE JOY XD

ahhhhhh Shori, you are so adorable~~~

Second of all, I'm flying off to Korea tomorrow morning. Honestly, I travel very little. Before 2013, meaning my life up till 2012, I only took a plane once. My life's changing. Last year, I travelled TWICE. I took a plane FOUR times. Maybe I sound silly, but omg, when I took the plane...I couldn't help it...tears sprang to my eyes. I wanted to travel so bad when I was in my early teens. When I finally took the plane, my emotions just went crazy. I might still tear a bit tomorrow when I'm on the plane, who knows.

I'm so thankful that I'm able to travel so much more. I've never actually wanted to go to S.Korea. BUT WHO CARES. ANYWHERE IS FINE. TRAVELLING IS DA BOMB.
hazellexkiss: (Default)
Yes, I know I'm a bit late.

And it's not like I was busy on Christmas day itself...I was just lazing around at home.

a bit of a rant )
BUT, I am grateful for my Christmas. Even if I didn't spend it with snow falling outside the window. Even if I don't have a fireplace, or a christmas tree. It was a day of relaxation. It was a day of peace.

AND, watching my Johnny's boys really cheer me up.
Especially this gif!! )

the Christmas special in Shokura was AWESOME. I especially loved the part where they showed parts of SZ's trip in Dubai! The fighting scene in the desert was so cute!!

And there was the part where Juri asked Shori if he liked him...I was kinda like....AWWW and WHA-? at the same time lol. It's a cute tactic I suppose?

Then, there was also Kisumai's part which was lovely toooooo ^^

oh! oh! oh! there was also the part where they showed everyone when they were CHIBIs!!! SO CUTE!!! My heart almost couldn't take it~~~ Kyaaaaa~

I haven't caught up with the Arashi stuff yet though. D:

I've downloaded a few stuff already, can't wait to watch them!!!

I also can't wait for the LOVE DVD to come out!!! SO EXCITED!!!

I actually think that Arashi and SZ keep me looking forward to 2014. I'm totally not looking forward to school starting again. But... ><

Distracted

Nov. 12th, 2013 09:12 pm
hazellexkiss: (pensive)
I feel like I've been walking around in a daze recently

I wonder if it's okay that I'm enjoying my solitude so much.

Especially in school. Cuz now that I'm in college, there's no real need for me to cling to any person or clique in particular. When classes end, I can go straight home. It's not like anyone needs my presence. And I've realised that I don't really need anyone either.

I don't know. I don't know.

but anyway, I managed to catch up on 49 a few days ago! Shori~~ :D

Sigh, gambare gambare~ exams are around the corner.

LOVE
