me & crowley

Aptly named for that ace purikura you see up there and the fact that I have serious soft spot for the King of Hell. And Mark Sheppard.

Anyway, my natural inclination--or maybe obligation--is to not post until I have something big or cohesive but to be honest? I really miss the ease of posting on good ol' eljay and being able to write whatever I wanted as it happened. I'm not always going to have nice Canon shots and the truth of it is, most of the time you'll probably get stuck with iPhone photos :D

 Stick with me though? I kinda want to make this more of "daily" blog because, if and when I ever decide to move again, I want to remember the places I went and the things I did while I was here. Even the little things.


Happy New Year from...Ikebukuro?

Also celebrated Lisa's birthday!
It's already been a week and a few days since I've been back and I honestly have no idea where it went. You'd think my current state of unemployment would come in tandem with boredom but I've actually been super busy. Aside from actual boring things like getting health insurance and final arrangements with my old company, I got an awesome present from my roomie and celebrated Lisa's birthday in Shimokitazawa. Unfortunately due to jetlag and being an alcohol weenie in general, I was drunk after two beers. Yes drunk, and yes you read that right. Two. Let's not talk about how I was drunk off one 22 oz beer Christmas Eve dinner while my brewski-seasoned brother looked on in shame.

Though it's in my profile, I'll say it again. I really love Supernatural. Like a lot. Maybe too much. The first time I saw it towards the end of high school, it scared the shit out of me and I gave up. When I tried watching it again 4 seasons later, Satan possessed someone. NOPE.

Needless to say, too much tumblr and one SPN marathon after another and I was hooked. My friend Sarah, who is now lovingly called Sarahstiel, organized a Mexican lunch and general lulzy SPN day.

In retrospect this kind of looks like Dean Winchester cosplay D:

El Torito! Closest thing to decent Mexican I've found so far here.

Dem faces, tho.

Because honestly why wouldn't you dedicate purikura to Crowley? He's 1/3 of the reason I kept watching the show post-Season 5 anyway.

Don't know if I'm flattered or ashamed that I'm in that S☆Bux enough that they English-up my cups now XD

Nan-party with my old coworkers

Finally! Went with the 64GB silver 5S

Each of the cherry blossoms is an individual card!

I had to go into my old office to take of some final arrangements. Felt so weird being back somewhere that I used to work but not...working. Still felt like I had to take a seat at my desk or something. The overwhelmingly positive reception I got when I came in though, really made me want to cry. I will honestly and truly miss my old coworkers so much. So happy I got to work with such lovely people.

I have no idea how it's already 3:30pm and my feet are so cold I'm actually considering putting on another pair of socks.

Live show post coming tomorrow! Hopefully.

In the meantime I have a ton of band comments to edit and I'm going to try desperately to not sit and read these two until later.

home sweet home

So considering I spent last Christmas with a sick cat and working, yes working on Christmas Day, I was more than just a little excited to head back to Georgia to spend the holidays with my family this year.

To be perfectly honest, the flight was awful. My touchscreen didn't work and I spent 14 hours desperately trying to watch whatever the screen spazzed onto. It ended up being The Wolverine. Please tell me how you drove from Nagasaki to Tokyo in 25 minutes because I don't understand.

For the last 4 hours of the flight I ended up getting a migraine so horrible that I could barely stand up when I got off the plane. The new international terminal is about a 10 minute walk from immigration and by this point all I wanted to do was sit down or lay on the floor. Aaaah, long story short I ended up going through immigration in a wheelchair because all the airport attendees outside the gate thought I was going to pass out, haha. The guy wasn't nearly as entertained as I was, though XD

Thankfully, things got much better--if not insanely busy--after that.

homemade cappuchino @ my little brother's place

christmas card from ande!

Breakfast Christmas morning :3

Sunday gravy, om nom.

Mom's homemade cheesecake

the haul

I really only asked for shoes and running clothes for Christmas but my parents had a few surprises waiting for me under the tree!

This is really awesome! Technically it's the older version but it works with my iPhone, Mac and the only downside is that when the bass is too loud it wiggles off of bookshelves and tables XD

Okay, so this is probably one of my favorite gifts, no joke. 
Just a simple devil's trap but fill it with hot water and then...

SAM N' DEAN. Look at those male modelin' sons of bitches.

Saw these ↓ on bloomzy's blog a while ago and though I was always planning on getting red All Stars, after I saw these I couldn't shake them. So happy with them!

Also ended up getting these. First pairs of Vans I think?

Then my parents basically just bought me Nike :D

Headed to AE and back to Victoria's secret with my remaining Christmas money!
Ended up spending waaay too much in Victoria's Secret but I'm happy to finally find bras that fit again. Sad that apparently the PINK line doesn't come in my size buuuut...they still have the cutest panties so yay.

Clothes below but no bra and panties. Nobody needs to see that ish XDD

and on

So after that, my dad bought me the Sims 3 and I basically fell off the earth until we went to Florida for the remainder of my break. It's the beginning of the end, I tell you.

Part II in Florida coming soon!

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season and New Year's! I had a few existential crises when I was home and leaving this time was really, really hard but I plan on doing a lot more this year with blogging and photos and whatnot so hopefully I'll be able to keep it up!
