spiderpig: (!!!!!! :: persona 3)
I'm trying to trim my fringe so that it looks like the short-ish crop I had in Japan but it's not working out very well. Looks like I'll have to pay the hair-dresser a visit. Speaking about going into town, I need to pick up my Ooku books.

I haven't given up yet, because Yen gave me a timely prod, so here is day 2 of the meme.

day 2 – where you’d like to be in 10 years.

If my math doesn't fail me, I'd be 31 going on 32 in 10 years time. It's a doubly scary thing for me, because another ten years would have passed me by and I'd be thirty. I can get away with being below 18 sometimes, when gregarious insurance agents approach me in the subway stations and ask me if I am old enough to talk to them and I can scoot away and say "no I'm still in JC." When I'm 30, I'm quite confident that I won't look like this anymore. Hopefully I'll be thinner, none of that paunch that comes from drinking and midnight snacking and in a better place.

I haven't decided. Do I want to be in Tokyo or New York? I know one large part of my postgrad plans are going to be centered around either place, but I still haven't decided. Or both. It'd be great if I could be like Naho and Yuri and shuttle between both places. Going through Yuri's mobile updates about her month in New York (on business, no less) and visiting her alma mater makes me feel that I should travel and experience the Big Apple, from the inside out. I'd like to be in a city -- with quick access to the country-side. Loud sounds and quiet people.

I miss Tokyo more than anything else. How the streets outside my dorm always had someone walking past, with their dog, by themselves on the way to the public bath-house, or bringing their laundry to the laundromat. I like watching the huge industrial washing machines and dryers whir into the night.

I'd like to be somewhere I can practice my art in. I'm caught right now, in between writing and photography, and while I want to pursue both wholeheartedly, I'm going to have to make a choice sooner or later. In ten years, hopefully I've found the answer -- and it might be the right one.
spiderpig: (Default)
Because I've neglected this journal for far too long, and I would like to practice writing -- that is, writing anything at all, because I've been abnormally tightlipped lately -- so Yen and I are going to do these 30 day memes!

I'm probably going to modify some of the questions because clearly this isn't a tumblr and I don't have time to tumblr around with tumblr questions.

meme questions )

Here is the first question.

day 1 – your current relationship, if single discuss how single life is.

answers here. )
spiderpig: (Default)
you are seagreen

Your dominant hues are cyan and green. Although you definately strive to be logical you care about people and know there's a time and place for thinking emotionally. Your head rules most things but your heart rules others, and getting them to meet in the middle takes a lot of your energy some days.

Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things happen.

Your outlook on life can be bright or dark, depending on the situation. You are flexible and see things objectively.

Not the best review I've done, probably because it's not for official publications. Still, I enjoyed writing it.

According to The Big Read, the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books on their list.  )

I clearly do not fall into their list. LOL. And I'm amused at how I've read most of these books when I was a kid.

Analytical Thinker (AT)

(Just visiting? Take the free test and determine your personality type!)

Analytical ThinkerThe analytical thinker is a reserved, quiet person. He likes to get to the bottom of things - curiosity is one of his strongest motives. He wants to know what holds the world together deep down inside. He does not really need much more to be happy because he is a modest person. Many mathematicians, philosophers and scientists belong to this type. He loathes contradictions and illogicalness; with his sharp intellect, he quickly and comprehensively grasps patterns, principles and structures. He is particularly interested in the fundamental nature of things and theoretical findings; for him, it is not necessarily a question of translating these into practical acts or in sharing his considerations with others. The analytical thinker likes to work alone; his ability to concentrate is more marked than that of all other personality types. He is open for and interested in new information.

The analytical thinker has little interest in everyday concerns - he is always a little like an “absent-minded professor” whose home and workplace are chaotic and who only concerns himself with banalities such as bodily needs when it becomes absolutely unavoidable. The acknowledgement of his work by others does not play a great role for him; in general, he is quite independent of social relationships and very self-reliant. He therefore often gives others the impression that he is arrogant or snobby - especially because he does not hesitate to speak his mind with his often harsh (even if justified) criticism and his imperturbable self-confidence. Incompetent contemporaries do not have it easy with him. But whoever succeeds in winning his respect and interest has a witty and very intelligent person to talk to. A partner who amazes one with his excellent powers of observation and his very dry humour.

It takes some time before an analytical thinker makes friends, but then they are mostly friends for life. He only needs very few people around him. Their most important ability is to be a match for him and thus give him inspiration. Constant social obligations quickly get on his nerves; he needs a lot of time alone and often withdraws from others. His partner must respect this and understand that this is not due to the lack of affection. Once he has decided in favour of a person, the analytical thinker is a loyal and reliable partner. However, one cannot expect romance and effusive expressions of feelings from him and he will definitely forget his wedding anniversary. But he is always up to a night spent with stimulating discussions and a good glass of wine!

Adjectives which describe your type

introverted, theoretical, logical, spontaneous, rational, analytical, intellectual, sceptical, pensive, critical, quiet, precise, independent, creative, inventive, abstract, eccentric, curious, reserved, self-involved, imaginative, unsociable, determined, modest, careful, incommunicative, witty

These subjects could interest you

literature, science fiction, philosophy, psychology, mathematics, Internet, drawing/painting, astrology, spiritual things, meditation, music, writing, strategy games, politics

x-posted from Tachikomatic Days.

I am a fangirl, I admit so stumbling upon this seiyuu webmeme from Bangin-san's blog was a treat! Especially if you're tired from school and feeling all ronery.

Head down to this link and place your name and a random male seiyuu will pen you a love letter of your own. Yeah, no Hirano Aya for you ronery fanboys.

So here's mine:




鈴村建一 144.jpg

OMG. SUZUKEN. I am honestly really extremely um really happy with the randomness of this! He's the seiyuu of a few of my favourite characters e.g. Hitachiin Hikaru, Lavi and Hariya Kounoshin, Rakushun.

Hit the cut for my translation of the letter! (It's my first time actually translating things so please be gentle XD)

omg <33 )

Woah. That was exhausting. I need to practice translating more things... If anyone can help me with the translations, please do!!!!
spiderpig: (WHAT YOU SAY?)
Animal meme from here

You are Black Sheep who has soft sensitive atmosphere and kind of feminine attraction.
You are not shy even towards men, and are very sociable.
But unlike the atmosphere you possess, you are not that romantic and dreamy.
You are extremely realistic in that you try to build a steady business and safe family.
You have great will power, and are very strong woman.
You can manipulate men tactfully.
You can serve them well to make them successful in life, and you will not easily give up half way.
Nevertheless, if it is about yourself, you tend to be loose, selfish and indecisive.
You can make objective decisions, and will not be influenced by emotions.
While you place importance on harmony of the people, you do not forget to subtly promoting yourself.
Therefore, you tend to have wide contact of people from early age.
You possess both dark and light side of personality, and that character comes out according to situation.
You can feel sorry for something, but you tend to be obstinate and not able to adapt to people around you.
You have rather strong maternal feelings towards men, and tend to take too much care of them.
This makes other people feel being interfered.
So you should be careful.
After getting married, you will work hard on cores, and become a good wife.
Although, you become devoted to your husband, when both of you get to middle age, your relationship may change, so you need to think up something to avoid such situation.

I'M SORRY WHAT? I feel slightly insulted that I'm supposed to be like that. :D()()()() I mean, for the men parts. I mean, what? WORK HARD ON CHORES? NO WAY DUDE.

But otherwise, I suppose it's accurate. LOL.

NOTE: And oh btw, I think Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds is totally hot, hot.

spiderpig: (FYI)
Reply to this post, and I will list three things I love about you. Maybe more than three. Then repost to your own journal and spread the love.

Hahah, I know I've been not blogging as much as usual a.k.a spamming my LJ, but aw man school and the flu is biting me in the ass. I think I need like buffs.

I'm vaguely amused because my dad just sent me an email to NOT repeal 377A "for the sake of our children". I'm amused.

Anyway, the Non-disclosure Agreement that I signed/ticked/agreed for the Hellgate London Beta makes my fangirling or non fangirling rather tough. I'm such a stickler for rules. Sigh.

There were a few things I wanted to talk about but I've kind of forgotten them all. Sadness.
