9 days until Japan.

I am pleased that it is not minus eight thousand degrees outside today. lol
I'm broke as a joke, but I got my $25 grocery refund in the mail yesterday from Co-op, so that is definitely going towards my party tonight. :P I'm glad I changed it from the club to karaoke, because $25 definitely would not have lasted me there.

My black cat is sitting next to me purring. I am going to miss him a lot. I named him 鳴 (Naru), after the vocalist of BIOSPHIA (VELGREED, at the time). I named him this because he is cute but not the brightest crayon in the box. :P

Naru. Definitely one of his more glamorous moments, trust me. lol


But no, I'm kind of tsundere. I love Naru. XD; In the way that a long-time fan does that rolls their eyes at every one of his many silly hijinks. (Like, back when he was in VELGREED, organizing a beach-nampa* event on ameblo in secret entries with a bunch of his bandmen and ikemen** friends lol.)

I do wonder when I'll get to see him again, since I can't just randomly go to lives anymore. And then half of me wonders when I do get to see him, if I'll even care?

I feel like my life came to a screeching halt at the end of 2008, and I haven't lived since. I really do feel that way. I feel like... I'm 19, because between being 19 and now, I accomplished a grand total of absolutely nothing, and didn't do anything that made me happy whatsoever (aside from the glorious 8 months in Vancouver where I acually had a load of friends and a ton of things to do, that was pretty great, but seriously dampened by the fact that I had absolutely no money and went into $3k of debt that would follow me relentlessly for the next 3 years). All I got was a couple chronic diseases and getting older. That is literally it. I feel like that time was stolen from me, is the truth of it. And now I'm gross and lost five years of my youth, and pretty much my entire early 20's. That's... fucking cruel, really.

All I can do now I guess is endeavour to make the ride into age 30 a much more enjoyable experience.

*nampa = 'pick up', like picking up girls
**ikemen = attractive guy

26 days until Japan.

Since this is one of my favourite j-rock videos ever because it makes me laugh and I can actually do their little dance (at the chorus), I will post it. :P



This song helps remind me that everyone is a little insecure and stuff. XD; The girl in it who plays Emiko is really cute though! 8D 僕の...エンジェ〜エ〜ル.

I went to the consulate yesterday and my visa should come in my passport within the next five to ten business days. :3 The lady helping said to call on Wednesday and at that time they will give me a better estimate of when it would be done. I am picking it up from the office so I will get it even faster yaaay~.

My old computer is finally ready to give to Jose. :P Thank god since I made him wait like two weeks! lol Thankfully, after many botched attempts, my dad lent me his external harddrive last night and then the transfer of my old photos was all done quickly.

I still need to mail my enrolment documents, but I'm going to do that after work today. /makes checkbox
☑ Mail enrolment documents

Also, I still need to apply for my student line of credit with my dad. e_e; Kind of dreading that. Plus he seems to continue to forget about it or doesn't see how important it is or doesn't realize that I actually need him to come with me since he needs to cosign because I'm leaving the country. :/ Either way it's a bit frustrating!

Speaking of financing, yesterday I randomly had to pay $200 to a collections agency for a ticket I got on the train in Vancouver 3 years ago. x___x; That came directly out of my Japan money. Suuuuuucked. Oh well; at least I know for certain I have nothing left owing this country. LOL

Just about 5 am now, time to leave for work! Bah :P

28 days until Japan.



I love these guys. This is umbrella; probably my favourite band out of Japan right now. And that's saying something big, for someone who's been into jrock for a long, long, long time. lol (14 years now as of this March! That's intense okay!)
They came to Calgary (and then went on to Toronto with アヲイ) in May of 2013. Their performances were unforgettable, their music is absolutely amazing. If you like bands like amber gris or 9goats black out, I think you'd like them. They're a little less intense, and Yui's vocals aren't quite as rich as either Temari or Ryo's, but he's a bit more charming I think. :P

Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing them again soon. Leela tells me there's lots of people willing to introduce umbrella to us and vice versa, so that's exciting. :3

My little (okay, not so little) black cat, Naru (which the rest of our family calls Spooker) has been sitting with me and following me around for the past week pretty well non-stop. I wonder if he's somehow picked up that I'm going to be leaving soon?
