  • I wrote an entry Monday morning about the Sakanaction concert and never posted it. Here it is in it's entirety:
    Post concert hangover?
    No alcohol consumed or anything, think it's just a mix of exhaustion and my cold. The Sakanaction concert was awesome! Super dancy and fun! Admittedly the latter half was better than the first half. Other than the super dancy intro, they played their more rock-ish songs first, some mellow songs, then launched into a bunch of dance-y tunes.

    Yoru no Odoriko was absolutely insane. Everyone went nuts. And they had dancing Maiko just like in the video! Another cool bit was they had a taiko group (with didgeridoo??) play with them as well. They actually opened for them, playing a couple songs before the band took stage, then they came out later to play during Identity, followed by a really intense electronic track. The mix of club music, tribalish percussion (THAT DIDGERIDOO) and maiko (because yes, they came out to dance again) was hypnotizing.

    Anyway, it was awesome. This was my first rock concert in over three years and I almost forgot how invigorating they can be. As it turns out, Sakanation is coming back to Osaka at the tail end of their tour at the end of February. I didn't know until they talked about it last night, but when I looked it up found they were in the middle of the presale period, so this morning I put my name in the raffle for presale tickets. Fingers crossed I'm chosen! They will be playing at a smaller venue this time, so I have no idea how difficult it will be to get tickets.

  • My parents house had an offer after only a day of it being on the market. They have accepted. The offer they put in on a condo near the waterfront was also accepted. Things are happening really fast and I am reeling, a mass of complicated feelings and nothing else. Definitely happy I went home during the summer though. Can only imagine how much more upset I'd be if I hadn't.

  • Took one of those personality tests for the first time in ages, and I'm actually going to try to not forget it within a week as I have in the past. I am INFJ. Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging. Hooray? Makes a lot of sense, though, the more I read about the type.

  • I'm having a birthday party for myself next weekend, and a handful of my favorite people can't make it for completely forgivable life reasons. It's fine, but I'm getting a bit down about it anyway. I guess part of it is that I have some friends from my hometown visiting and I kind of want to show off my friends here, but won't be able to. The other part is me being just generally down on myself recently. The mind is not always a friendly place.

  • F**king Haikyuu. I think I am starting to love you and I wish I didn't I have to make myself feel so embarrassed about it.

  • Katsushi and I had lunch at the City Bakery cafe yesterday and they had pumpkin pie! I was really excited about it and it did not disappoint (City Bakery has yet to let me down!), but I was bummed because it is an October, Halloween special only. Booooooo.

F**king Haikyuu. I think I am starting to love you

One of the reasons that I highly recommended it: you just can't put it down. I knew you'll love it~ The anime adaptation isn't that bad either and it's quite fun.

Now all you need to read next is Kuroko no Basuke! :D

I'm glad you had fun at the concert despite having a cold. Sakanaction seems like a fun band to see live.

Wee~ sounds like a really fun concert, even with the exhaustion and cold! Goodluck with getting those tickets for their next concert (and no more colds on that day, I hope)!

I'm INFJ, too. I've only taken it twice, but I think I also got the same result last time.

Cheers for the birthday party! It's always nice when your favorite people get to go. Hope it won't be too stressful with the preparation and all!

lol at your reaction to Haikyuu! Though I kind of understand it. Like I remember watching Kuroko no Basuke and wondering why I even care what happens next when I don't like basketball! XD

Aww that's too bad about it being only a Halloween special, but I suppose now you know what to look forward to next year :)

Yeay! I didn't think we were that rare haha. Though I think you might be right about there being a bunch of INFJ folks over here. DW and similar sites offer the sort of blogging/community that we tend to seek.

Oh you're so right about the slash thing. I mean, for titles like Free! and Kuroko no Basuke, I found out about them through fanworks, and I really did think the relationships were that explicit stated in the source work.

Ah and it's rather late but still....happy birthday! Hope yesterday was fun!
