Pixel Icons This journal is semi-friends.
Pixel Icons All Arashi/JE-related art, graphics and ramblings will ALWAYS be open.
Pixel Icons Personal entries will usually be locked, but they are mostly boring.
I’m all up for making new friends, but I don’t wanna add complete strangers either. So, please feel free to say ‘hi’ here. I won't bite :) Pixel Icons Introduce yourselves. Or lemme know why your adding. Or tell me about your weekend, or your breakfast today. You can also ask me anything here. WHATEVER. Just ‘cuz I think it would be really swell if there's some form of communication between you & me before we hit the ‘add a friend’ button ^^
Have an awesome day :3

I've just come off a backshift at work which goes from 5pm to 2am, so am in that weird delirious/zombified state post-nights.
It usually means that I eat lots of junk food. Today has been no different, and I'm munching away on choc chip cookies right now.

LJ is so different now! It took me awhile to find the 'post new entry' button, haha.
Looking back at this journal I've had  'warm & fuzzy' feelings.. I used to be so creative and full of photoshop goodness for Arashi
I apologise that now has trickled dry...
I've been getting back to watching VS Arashi - its the only one of their variety shows that my basic Japanese will suffice to understand without subtitles, since the commentary is a little simpler than their other talk shows. Still amazing though. Kicking Sniper is deffo the best.

However, I have finally fixed my adobe CS2 and hopefully my WACOM still works, 'cuz I miss drawing, I really do.

Ohisashiburi!
I've totally neglected LJ and a bit of Arashi in general.... m(_ _)m
and for that I'm sorry!
A mixture of real life and other interests and working and travelling has just completely swamped me.
I'm living in a new city (for the past 6 months now), and started working full time (having finally graduated!). Full time shift work is not all that it's cut out to be, haha.
But Arashi will forever hold a special place in my heart!

I am lying sick with a cold, and have re-discovered my favourite Stormy boys in their newest variety show episodes. <3
I haven't listened to their new music or concerts in so long though...

Unfortunately, I've been in a bit of a drawing slump, and have thoroughly neglected my wacom tablet and photoshop too. I have picked up crochet though, and made some amigurumi! :3
Anyway, a random message just to say hi.
Maybe... hopefully... you shall see some more creative things from me in the future. I sure hope so.

Tomorrow, I fly off to Tanzania, where I'll be spending 9 weeks for an elective project and a bit of exploring! I'll be based right by Mt Kilimanjaro.

It's a trip that's been in the works for so long... I can't believe it's actually here!! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


Right, I'm off to find Simba.

****

Although ridiculously exciting, my inner nerd is cringing a bit because when I'm away all this important stuff is happening, and I'm gonna miss it...


  • thor: the dark world

  • the hobbit: desolation of smaug

  • tom's coriolanus

  • 50th doctor who special

  • the hobbit: an unexpected journey extended edition DVD

  • miracle boy aiba masaki's birthday

Though I bet sherlock season 3 still won't be out..

*waaaah*

Have re-vamped my LJ! This time, layout is inspired by Arafes '13. Specifically Nino's solo Himitsu and the other members dressed up as cute lil' mascots!  (perhaps with the exception of miracle boy in his tiger wrestling mask, lawl :P)

Jun has a particularly derp face on. Hahahahaaaa

I'm now on my 5th journal layout! I've been changing it annually... which means I've been active on LJ for 5 years now. Wow, how crazy is that?! I know I'm not as active as I used to be, but I send out my own BIG LOVE and THANK YOU for anybody who's stopped by for a visit or a comment. I really do appreciate it!! And big hugs to those who have stuck around and followed me/my art over the years!! x

AHHHHHHHHHHH!
I was lucky enough to see the Northern Lights in the sky tonight!!! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
My first time seeing the lights... and It was UH-MAZ-ING.

I'm up in the little island of Shetland at the moment, but I never thought I would be able to see it this early! It's not even properly winter yet! :O

northern lights

On another note, I'm currently re-designing a new layout for my LJ ! :)

ugh. I've just read the song list for Arafes...and it's freaking perfect.

All members singing Aiba's Hello Goodbye !
Tokei Jikake no Umbrella ! (I really wished this song was a single, I can just imagine the PV would be amazing~ sort of like the 'believe' PV, but the boys dancing in the rain in puddles with umbrellas)
Arashi dressed up as animal mascots !
Welcome to our Party !
5x10 !
finishing off the encore with Sakura Sake ! (my absolute fave song of all time!)

Just saying, they better release a DVD of this. OR ELSE.
