  • I wrote an entry Monday morning about the Sakanaction concert and never posted it. Here it is in it's entirety: SAKANATRIBE!!! )

  • 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.

Holy Dance.

I have been listening to Sakanaction all week. The new single has kind of pulled me back into the band and everything is the best. This morning I happened upon some tour dates, and when I checked the Osaka days, it said (non-presale) tickets for the day I preferred, 10/18, would go on sale at 10am, October 4th. Stared at it for a minute before realizing that was in, like, 15 minutes. I debated for a few minutes, but then I was like "YOU ARE ALMOST 30 AND YOU WILL DO WHATEVER YOU DAMN WELL PLEASE," threw on some clothes, and ran to the convenience store.

This will be my first arena/stadium style concert in Japan and that is exciting. We will be on the arena floor, which is standing room only, but separated into sections. Our section probably isn't all that great considering those probably sold out during the presale period, but who cares? I'm going to see Sakanaction. IN TWO WEEKS.

So yeah, I am totally excited. The rest of my Sunday was pretty good as well. We met up with Donna and our other friend Sam, and we had a picnic at Ryokuchi Koen, a big park near Donna's place. The weather was beautiful and we shared some delicious food and talked and stuff. And there was this cute little kid, probably about 3, who kept coming over to collect acorns. He would talk to us (in Japanese and a bit of English), give us acorns, and he even shook our hands? Haha. His mom kept apologizing to us, but it was super cute and we didn't mind. XD

In other things...not much? It was a pretty tame weekend. Not much but the full moon making me all moody and the fact that I beat DQVIII and started Lunar 2. Yaaaaaay?

Last night I went out for dinner and drinks with Melissa and some of her old students (now just friends. They've been getting together every few months like this for years). One of them is my student this year, and we've had multiple conversations about our friendship with Melissa, so this time she invited me as well. We went to an Asian fusion restaurant in Umeda. The food was tasty and everyone was really nice. Feel like I've been kind of accepted into their group, and they've promised to invite me to all future get togethers. Awesome!

When I came back home I beat Persona 3 Portable. I know a couple entries ago I complained a bit about certain aspects of the game, but the game was still completely and utterly awesome. I think I like P4 a bit better as a game, but I think I liked P3's overarching story better. And the ending. THE ENDING. It was PERFECT. And, Aigis. My dear, sweet Aigis. Was not expecting her to be my fav by the end, but it happened and now I have so many feelings.

Really liking the new Sakanaction stuff (this is a double a side single, I think? There's another video here featuring a DANCING SPIDER). I haven't paid attention to them for a while and am now feeling like I need to remedy this. Though I do feel the need to chime in once again and say how I wish their videos weren't so focused on the vocalist. I WANT TO SEE MORE OF THE REST OF THE BAND.

First off, let's take a moment to appreciate the new Sakanaction single:

I love this song. I LOVE IT. And I also really like the mix of typical traditional Japanese elements in the video with the modernness of the super catchy, dance rock-iness of the song (and the disco-esque lighting effects). The whole package of video + song is awesome and oddly...moving? I don't know.

Signed the lease on the new apartment this morning! I'm pretty excited. Last night after work I spent a good chunk of time on the MUJI and IKEA websites getting ideas for my new apartment. I'm planning on leaving behind pretty much everything (furniture-wise) from this apartment and starting over. I had a lot of fun looking around and admittedly I had trouble getting to sleep last night because my mind was alive with the possibilities. I'm going to have a lot of fun over the next couple months (both before and after moving in) planning and arranging my ~dream~ apartment.

Feeling pressured/cornered into doing private lessons. WHAT TO DOOO. )
