Update Post - It's been over 10 years since I made this account lol

Just an update to anyone that's still even around... :)

  • I've moved back home

  • I've been working for a while

  • Arashi went on hiatus but I managed to catch up on the few things and watched the This is ARASHI Live concert

  • I've spent a ridiculous amount of money buying Arashi goods again as per usual

  • Life has just changed a lot ^^'

I am old now lol. I do miss the days where LJ was a bit livelier and the communities were more active.
I'll be lurking and downloading more Arashi content for a bit now haha

Most previous posts are locked cause my teenager rambling is too embarassing to behold >_>;

Anyways, peace out.

I really do wonder if anyone I know is around anymore? It's been a while - finally graduated and am actually in the middle of my postgrad now. Much work. Much stress.

Surprisingly I've started listening to old Arashi songs again :) its quite nice and nostalgic.



Anyone out there anymore? x'D

YAMAPI'S CONCERT! 23RD APRIL 2011 THAILAND

OMFGOMFGOMFG YAMAPI'S CONCERT WAS AMAAZZZINNNGGG!!!!

SO this is kind of a little report-ish summary of mine based on MY highlights of the show XD

-----------------------------------------------

First of all, the weather during the day was pretty okay - I thought that maybe, just today it wouldn't rain.

BIG MISTAKE.

By 3:00PM IT WAS POURING! POURINGPOURINGPOURINGPOURINGPOURING!!!!!!!!! So, because of this, I decided to get ready early and planned to leave my house at 5 so I could arrive at the Thunderdome at 6. Unfortunately, I hadn't gotten my money from my mom(who was coming back from one of her old 'ex-students school committee' meeting thingies so she had to use the car as well. When she and my driver arrived, it was about 17:30. I was so angry but I couldn't do anything - one thing about BKK, the traffic is ALWAYS bad. Especially on weekends, especially in the evening (rush hour?) AND ESPECIALLY IF ITS BEEN FUCKING RAINING.

Anyways,
I was supposed to meet up with my friend at the Thunderdome, but her house was further way from IMPACT arena than mines was. I got quite stressed out cause I thought we couldn't make it on time. The roads were flooded, MILLIONS AND GAJILLIONS OF CARS IN THE WAY...GAHHHH but i got there at about 18:45 (supposed to arrive at about 18:30  but my driver took me to the wrong building at first - he took me to the place which Maroon 5 was playing ahahaha) And i STILL had to wait for my friend because I had the tickets. During this time, I tried to go and but the concert goods(which was my aim from the very beginning - pretty much the reason why I wanted to get to the concert earlier) BUT BECAUSE OF THE TIME they'd closed the line and said that we could buy more stuff after the concert T.T''''

So at the last minute, my friend arrived - HOWEVER our tickets were...WRONG?!??! Apparently, Thai-Ticket Major had changed our ticket seats because they decided that the area we got our tickets for were bad seats - my friend and I were originally supposed to be sitting in Zone F but our tickets were then moved to...ZONE I, ROW A...seat no. 6 & 7.

------------------

THE SHOW (FINALLY)

Can I just say, never before in my life had my ears gone so numb from all the screaming, shouting, squealing...clapping etc. etc.

The first song of course, was DAITE SENIORITA. Pi was wearing a glittery-military-cut red, gold and black long-coat, his hair of course is still the same XD and everyone screamed each time he did that thrusting-hip motion thing in his dance moves :D And there I was, standing in awe and shock because the only thing that kept on going through my mind was: OMFG ITS THE REAL THING!!!!!!!!!!!! RIGHT HERE IN FRONT OF ME!!!!!!!!

So anyways, second highlight: The introductions. The Johnnys Juniors that came with Pi were A.B.C.Z and FiVe(who did the musical instruments) I believe it was Kawai(OMG SPELLING T_T''')'s introduction that I loved most. WHY? BECAUSE HE WAS DOING MATSUJUN'S WISH DANCE MOVE MONOMANE!!!!!!!!! OMFGOMFGOMFG AHAHAHAHHAA I was LAUGHING MY ASS OFF AHAHAHAHA XD I had to say that there Thai pronounciation wasn't that bad - speaking of which Yamapi's english WAS SO CUTE :P He spoke quite a bit of english((random insert here - I think the translator didn't do his job that well because there was one part when Pi was saying: please forget all the bad/sad(warui) koto and enjoy the concert (something along the lines of that) and the trnaslator said: "Please forget everthing" -.-''')) Other than that(I'm sorry to ABCZ fans that may be reading this) I didn't really find any other member's introduction to be as interesting as Kawai's LOL

3rd highlight: THE MC!!! THEY DECIDED TO ASK FANS QUESTIONS!!! Most of them were like: I love you Yamapi! And weren't really questions but I believe some of the questions were like "What would you like to do most in Thailand" and Pi answered that he'd like to go water-scootering (I FAIL XD) and someone else asked "Would you come to Thailand again?" and he answered "If you call me over ;)" Then there were questions like asking Kawai to do another monomane and someone ASKED YAMAPI TO HUG HER WHICH HE DID OMFGOFMGOMFGOMFG Everyone in my zone were like green with jealousy ahahaha

Other: The white leather sofa (i don't remember which song it is: FAIL) but he changed into a white shirt on this white leather sofa on the left corner of the stage and everyone was screaming their ass off - then there was another song in which they played videos of several scenes of Pi's past dramas(INCLUDING THE ONE WHICH HE WAS NAKED IN THE BATHTUB!!! which everyone screamed at) And sometime during the concert, the lid of my pen-light thingy fell off and parts of my penlight flew into the air...I think it was because I was shaking it too hard XD But I found the parts in the end anyways.

And this is the list of songs I can remember (sorry, I fail -  not in the right order either[this i am sure of])

Daite Seniorita
Seishun Amigo
One in a Million
Tokyo Sinfornetta
TOMO
Friday Night
Blood Diamond
PARTY DON'T STOP
MOLA (?_?OMFG I FAIL)
Hadakanbo
ONE GIRL
Gomen ne
Touch you

ENCORE:
Loveless
(something else?)

Oh and during the 'end' and the encore, the whole stadium started singing 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' to Yamapi XD but he wasn't there to see it. There were also parts when ABCZ sang some of their songs in which I assume one was called 'Vanilla'. There was also this part where they did this fighting scene thing with katanas and spears - then Pi appeared with a more japanese-themed outfit and started singing...uhh...I think my excitement makes my memory fail DX Anyways, he was also wearing like an akuma mask(?) at the start of it as well.

Um what else? Most of the english phrases Pi used were like "Dance song!" and things like that...Anytime there was extra skin being showed the whole stadium burst into screams...um..OMG HE ALSO THREW ABOUT 3-4 BALLS INTO THE CROWD (and I saw a lot of people fighting for them ahahaa) My friend and I fought over one of the streamers that fell in front of us XD - she also got a Styrofoam thingy so we tore each in half and gave them to each other XD

We missed part of the end though. Cause we actually thought the concert had ended and we rushed to go line up for the concert goods - but I had to admit what we did was right in a way because as soon as the concert ended the line was REALLY REALLY REALLY long. Oh and I got one of everything of course :p (might upload pics later ahahaa)

Anyways, its late and I should go take a shower and go to bed cause i'm so exhausted from all the screaming I've done today :p

P.S.

I'd kill to go again tomorrow XD

RIKKYO SCHOOL

Hiii

Haven't posted in a while XD[well a week]

Today I FINALLY went to the Japanese school "Rikkyo Gakuen" and it was AMAZING!
Everything was so...japanese 8D LOL The school uniform, the classrooms...the only thing that was wrong was the weather cause it was FREEZING. I have a kouhai in the year below me who'd been to their 'open day' before and she like introduced me to some of the girls and we were all like flailing around because it was like OMG ARASHIIII!!! XD There was this one girl Haruka-chan also in the year below, she'd gone to LAST YEAR'S NAGOYA CONCERT!!! She even had like the phone strap along with the kokuritus[gold] charm, sapporo dome charm, tokyo dome charm and the orange[don't remember where] charm on her phone. The sticker on her phone case [which was a bunch of letters and numbers] WAS HER TICKET/SEAT NUMBER WHEN SHE WENT TO THE CONCERT!!!!!!!!! JEALOUSSS Oh and she also had the kokuritsu pin badges from BNMF concert as well.

It's so funny how everyone who is japanese that I happen to meet or know is somehow related to Arashi: first there was my japanese teacher[back at home - not in england]'s friend who got to go watch VS Arashi live[upcoming 25th of November's episode], then my sister's friend in uni [japanese guy named Taishi] apparently he'd done his like work experience with ARASHI'S STYLIST!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyways, going back to my trip to the school - there was so much food and stuff that I'd bought [and eaten alraedy - i'm such a freaking fatty ahahahahaha] and the yakitori stall had thIs REALLY FIT[english term for 'hot' if you don't know] guy. I was with one of my senapai [who is Japanese] and we were like: "OMG HE'S SO FIT" like the WHOLE time XD
Along with this, my kouhai has this HUGE ASS crush on some guy named Mizuda Daichi who we had nicknamed 'mame' [bean in japanese LMAO] because his face looks like a bean. I kept on calling him mame-chan :p
ANYWAYS we had to like go and find this other Japanese girl to find mame-chan because my kouhai only knew him from last year when she'd gone to the opening day and they talked for a bit and my kouhai is incredibly shy and crazy at the same time and she was like :OMGOMGOMGWHATAMIGONNADOOOO the WHOLE time. In the end with the help of Haruka, we were able to get her to take a photo with mame-chan XD
And apparently Mame-chan has a lot of 'fans' ahahahaha. He's not that good looking. Really.

Speaking of good looking guys - the Yakitori stall. My senpai and I were talking and this lovely young fit guy ran past us 'advertising' for people to go to the stall. It was later on that we found out that his name was Yuu and that he was in his 3rd/last year of High school. I don't have a clear pic of him but, here are a few photos that I took today:




Yuu is the guy in the pale-green v-neck shirt NOT the chicken XD [talking about stalkerism ahahahaha] although you can't see his face[i tried to take a pic :p] he REALLY IS good looking ;)

Another recent happening: I SWEAR someone has cursed my room at school. The heating is too hot[i have a thermometer and it says its 28 DEGREES C!!!], the lights in my room have ALSO gone all wierd - apparently it's a short circuit AND i get spiders about this BIG -->>

(------------------------------------------------------------------) NO KIDDING, THIS IS THE SAME SIZE
I've had about 3 of them in my room so far and my friend was really unlucky since one of them dropped on her when she was taking a shower T_T''''

Someone must really hate me...

Anyways, I gotta go do my Japanese essay now - the teacher here at school is so f*cking stupid. She's never taught me how to write an essay and she's like "You have to do one" and even when I argue back she said: "I'm not having this conversation with you. It doesn't matter  if you don't know how, just get on with it." I was like WTF B*TCH???!?!?! I feel really sorry for my kouhai in Y9 cause when they have lessons with her all she's ever taught them is hambaaga desu. and they watch movies and fold origami. Her accent is also really cringable...

Oh and since she said I could choose my topic for my essay I'm writing about ARASHI XD

HALF-TERM

FINALLY XD

I've been back at boarding school for about 6 weeks or so doing my AS levels
AND I DIED

It's like a gajillionbilliontrillion times harder than GCSEs...
Four hours of sleep
I miss breakfast most of the time[well...that's kinda cuase I'm too lazy to get up LOL]
And I lost 2 KG cause of that
but since I'm back at home i think i've gained again lmao ahahahahhahaha

Anyways, the a-levels I'm doing are Biology, Psychology, English.Lit and...JAPANESE!!!!
OMG I WAS SO HAPPY
Well basically at first i was gonna do Business studies [[BS=bullsh*t]] but it was so...bleh
and then i managed to convince the director of studies to let me do Japanese in which I have to pay for the private lessons myself (30 pounds a lesson with the stupid teacher that can't teach me anything - my japanese is better than hers. My 'kouhai' is studying with her, in which she is in Y9 and she says that all this teacher gets her to do is watch anime and fold origami. She's not even Japanese... -_-'' her japanese makes me cringe)
Well anyways, I've seen some of the papers and it doesn't seem that hard. And I know most of the sentence structures because I hear them from all the dramas and variety shows i watch *coughARASHIcough*

But I do have a problem with biology. It's almost impossible for me T_T
My friend ayboo-da-bish[lj name -->> SHE JUST JOINED THIS YEAR :D] is amazing at it.
Anyways, speaking of ayboo-da-bish/ I call her buggle XD, when we first met I was like asking her bout her hobbies and stuff and she said... "internet" and I was like: "Fanfiction?" and we started screaming and all that stuff ahahahahahaha [actually i did most of the screaming really] ((yes i am a fanfic freak XD))

Well this year since I'm in 6th form now, we're allowed to cook our own food and stuff[YES NO MORE FISH AND CHIPS!]

Basically things like pasta etc. but we also made a cake, pastries, mini-pizzas etc[OH AND WE MADE OUR OWN CRISPS :)] were for our friend's bday lol

------------------------------------
