2010 was awesome.

I spent 6 weeks in Philippines, watching what it means to be poor irl (my country is like an alternate reality that is really safe where people live under a well and knows nothing about the world outside) and eating goldilocks brownies at PHP29 which is the best brownie I've ever tasted in my life. The other brownies I've eaten are not brownies. They are cakes >_>

I spent around 2 months in Japan, which is probably the most memorable thing that's gonna happen to me in my entire life. 6 KAT-TUN concerts, baby. I've met wonderful, wonderful people like aya_3003 chibimoxx cutedorkylove dernierous harajunko86 sere_chan ♥♥♥ I've backpacked around Japan, got lost way too many times at 11pm, got slightly freaked out at ghost towns in rural areas in the evenings... but I survived :DDDDDD 

I've also got into new fandoms *ahemahemit'sKAT-TUN'sfault* and made many great friends which I want to list everybody here but I'm dying after 48 hours of not much sleep D: Seasoned fangirls are the best (all of my friends are seasoned fangirls XD) since we're all passionate (lol) and can pick up the same things in videos that gets us ksdf;lkjdhflkasjfdh;asjdf. jahdsfkljdfhkaljsdfhaksjfd AWESOME.

So, THANK YOU 2010 and A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL MY BELOVED FRIENDS! Hopefully 2011 would be good considering how I'm in New York now for the next 5 months or so.

*continues to sniff like crazy* I'm sick ugh D: We'll talk again when my head is not feeling giddy. *faints on the bus*
 IS ON HIATUS  since 22nd december *gets shot*

I apologise for not having time to check and read everybody's posts and fangirl together ;-; Exams ended on the 22nd and since I'm flying in 2 days (which I HAVE NOT PACKED OMG?!), I've been spending everyday with lunch appointments, dinner appointments and lots and lots of activities which are completely draining my energy away (in fact I just got home and yes it's currently 5.08am) Which I should have been spending on packing for a 5 month university exchange. My free time is completely spent reading the USA tourist guidebook. 

ANYWAY I DON'T THINK I MENTIONED IT HERE BUT I'M FLYING OFF TO THE STATES! ANYBODY WANTS TO MEET UP? XDDDD

And I'll still be able to check facebook and the comms but not so much as to LJ :/ Time is running out.

I'll probably be back in mid Jan or so after I've settled down in Troy. I'll still try to read everybody's posts whenever I can :D

Futarigake no Basho lyrics

 Hmm. So after I listened to this song for the 234658237253 time, I decided to translate it according to my own understanding. 

It is somewhat different from kenken-san's translation, since we are looking at things from different POVs. Plus, I took the liberty of arranging the sentences to make them flow and add in my understanding of the lyrics.

Maaa, even if I'm wrong... haha at least I learnt in the process :P

Translations:

Someday, the you who turned into an adult suddenly,
Mentioned about another world and laughed
From the empty fields in school to the road home
It was my everything, in this small world of mine.

The mail you sent,
With only the words “ganbare”
Without replying the mail immediately,
I watched the sunset disappear

Even though I seek the myself of tomorrow,
Memories of the both of us from yesterday surfaced
My hand that reached out only managed to grasp
The sigh that you made, again

Even though I seek the myself of the future,
Memories still shine brightly
I know that I need to move on,
But can you stay here just a little bit more?

I can never get this, it’s your life
I can never get this, it’s your life
The night is going to turn into dawn soon,
You can never get this, it’s my life
One day... Definitely.

To the you who left and moved on,
I can’t catch up with you yet
But I will try to discover something
On the other side of this aimless path (that I’m on)

If I can move on,
I will reply your mail.
At that time, I hope you will remember
Everything we were in this place

I can never get this, it’s your life
I can never get this, it’s your life
Quietly, the streets are waiting for dawn
I can never get this, it’s your life
You can never get this, it’s my life.

Dec. 14th, 2010

 OH. MY. GOD. 

I can't on my Asus netbook. holy shit. It's not moving before the login screen. Like there's just a completely black screen.

Okay, I AM REALLY FREAKING OUT MAJORLY. MY 60 GB WORTH OF VIDEOS?!?!??!?!?!?!?! I WAS JUST REWATCHING THE ARIGATOU PERF LIKE 1 HOUR AGO. OMG WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS!?

What should I do. My dad is going to kill me. 
 OMG. 

I just killed myself over the most recent school kakumei performance of arigatou instead of the arigatou PV. Maybe cos the PV was superbly LQ with the left side cut off? :O

ANYWAY. I AM DYING. BRBZ I'M OFF TO REWATCH THE PERF A FEW MORE GAZILLION TIMES AND THEN I CAN ACCURATELY WRITE OUT EXACTLY WHY I'M DYING FROM IT.

HOLY SHIT. LATERZ.

Editz: HIP THRUSTS. AREN'T YOU TOO YOUNG FOR THIS. KNOCKING THE DOOR, HIKARU COMES IN, DANCING LOOKING AT HIKARU. MY IMAGINATION IS RUNNING WILD. THAT SMIRK AT CHINEN AT THE 'HA HA' PART. OHMYGOD SO WRONG. THE "ano fashion gratto kitemo gracias gracias..." PART. THAT TILT THE HEAD SLIGHTLY AND SMILING SLIGHTLY INTO THE CAMERA OMG I AM DYINGGGGZ.
And yes, I am online 24/7 365 days every year. If you're on my msn list, you would know :D I don't think I've shut down my computer in the past.... idk how many months :O

So anyway, despite that, I apologise if I haven't been keeping up with my f-list recently. I don't use the friends page to check for updates (ehhhhhh, if I do I'd be swarmed with at least a few hundred posts per day with the number of communities I'm in, and no I don't categorise the comms cos I'm just plain lazy) so I go to each individual comm to check everyday :O Yeah, sometimes I get too engrossed with clicking f5 at the fics comm (my reliance on fics is utterly, utterly sick. I've got a few screws loose in my head?) and most of the other comms so :( idk. What am I doing again. 

Either that or I'll read mangas until I'm sick of reading mangas. Omg I think I've read over 20(?) mangas for the past week. Or maybe more. Not sure I don't count :/

Exams are starting this friday. Ive got papers this friday, saturday (idk why i have a paper on sat ughhhhhhh) and next monday. The last paper is on the 22nd which is quite some time away :D 

... I should be studying and not updating, lol. 
 In Japan, no one wished you luck. Everyone told you to work hard, that giving up is no use, and it is better if you do well. Have an upcoming appearance on Music Station? Work hard. Have a Math test tomorrow? Do your best. Upon hearing those phrases, Keito feels uneasy. He has been working hard. He has been doing his best. He hasn't given up. In this country, everyone expects something from him, and it had to be something good. No one ever gave him a little nudge, something that seemed to sound little like those small words of encouragement his friends back in Suffolk whispered whenever he felt like losing hope.

Good luck.

Hearing Yamada say those words in a familiar tongue was more than enough encouragement anyone had given him ever since he got here.


Notes: On another note, try taking 「がんばる」 (ganbaru) and 「あきらめてはだめ」 (akiramete wa dame) literally. Language says a lot about culture.

From: http://soredake.livejournal.com/4914.html (it's a fic btw. I do always feel the most inspired when reading fics *gets shot*)

That's pretty interesting. So interesting that it warrants a post on my LJ. Never thought of it this way. Hmm. 

Arigatou perf in SK

 ... omg. omg. oh my god. Srsy, I don't think I've seen somebody with more camera presence than you in my 6 years of staring at guys (I admit, lol). 

And yes, I'm talking about Yamada again. *gets shot* This guy. This guy. He really knows what he's doing in front of the camera and he's really really good at it. Every turn of his head, every wink, every action, every gesture he does. The way he looks at the camera. Holy shit, I swear I went into heaven. And I don't think I'm being biased here otherwise I would have said that about Kame whom I'm a crazy, crazy fangirl of.

I'm outta words, yama-chan. *just finished rewatching Arigatou perf in SK for the tenth time*

So anyway. MANY COMMENTS ABOUT THE SONG.

Weird arm flaily dance move in the chorus. ..... um, okay.

Juniors (the backstage dancers) looking hotter than them while they're doing the "oh. oh" and popping their chest in the first chorus while Yamada, Chinen and Hikaru are stuck doing the weird arm flaily move. .... um, okay.

Yamada doing the "ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. woohoooooooooooo" support voice. Oooo, I'd always thought it would be Chinen doing it. But of course, I'm not complaining he's good :D

And the boys finally does the "Oh oh" thing while popping their chest *thumbs up* Nice, Hikaru.

"Come on!" Yes, I died Yamada. You know that thousands of fangirls would just die and I am one of them.

Chinen blocking my view of Yama-chan's body wave in the chorus. DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD: I am the sadness Chinen. Yes, you're cute but ever since I saw that body wave in BEST's arigatou performance in YY I've been thinking how it would look like if Yamada was the one doing it since he has ALREADY KILLED ME WITH HIS SUBTLE BODY WAVE IN THE TIME PERFORMANCE IN SHOUNEN CLUB and I wanted to really wanted to see but Chinen. Chinen. ;_______________________;

 That last dance move where Yamada tilted his head slightly and does that arm move thing. HIS FACIAL EXPRESSION. OMG. OH MY GOD. Srsly he really knows what he's doing. There's this subtle smile and the way he tilts his head. 

... And I would have went into greater detail for the performance but I guess nobody really wants to read how much I like Yamada's tilt of the head/smile/way he looks at the camera for the nth time/dance move/now-this-is-really-a-lot-of-detail. Plus it's not easy to type all these out in words :D

*back to rewatching the performance*

Yamajima

 ... I need to catch up with what happened to Yamajima 3 years ago in 2007 and stuff. Came into the fandom too late :/ Where should I start? Need to how it was like before with my own eyes (a.k.a videos, translations of magazines etc) and not through fics i read way too many fics

This feels so much like akame. Even the dates are similar; 2006/ 2007 etc -_- 
OMGOMGOMGOMG OH MY GOD. I SWEAR. I JUST HEARD JUMP SAY "深深久久(から)多么谢谢" in their new song. 深深久久多么谢谢 is in chinese. i'm really bad in chinese translations  谢谢 (pronounced as xie xie, which the japanese romaji it to be shei shei) means thank you and the words in front are just indicative of the depth (deep!) and the time period (longggg) that the person feel thanks for. Okay, i fail in translating orz. 

Kanji lyrics:
シャウトシャウト長城から
どうもシェイシェイ
Hmm, it doesn't seem to coincide with what I heard :( Though the kanji lyrics make no sense on it's own. 

SO I'LL JUST BELIEVE THAT THEY SAID 深深久久(から)多么谢谢 AND THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY :DDDDD I'm taking this really personally since I'm chinese (by race) so it's like my mother tongue of sorts and OMG CHINESEEEEEE. JUMPPPPPP. <3<3<3<3<3<3333333

This reminds me of when KAT-TUN spoke in Chinese during their concert in Taiwan and I FLAILED FOR MANY MANY DAYS OVER IT. ESPECIALLY THE CHINESE PORTION DURING SMILE, I EVEN SANG IT IN KARAOKE.
