You are in touch with your emotions, and sometimes you react before you think. The good news: you don't tamp down your feelings. The bad news: you sometimes say or do things that you later wish you could take back.
You do not live your life on an even keel; you do not go for long periods without experiencing some mood swings.
You appreciate art, beauty, and design; you know that they are not superficial but absolutely crucial to living the good life. You have good taste, and you're proud of it. Those with a high score on the "aesthetic" trait are often employed in literary or artistic professions, enjoy domestic activities — doing things around the house — and are enthusiastic about the arts, reading, and travel.
You don't think it's pretentious to be moved by art and beauty. You're not one of those who believe it doesn't matter what something looks like as long as it does its job.
You are somewhat shy, or at least unwilling to spend all your time socializing. With you it's true that "still waters run deep," which is why many of your acquaintances never get to know you well.
You are not always ready to talk at the drop of a hat. Whether you're in the office or at a party, you're not likely to be found gabbing away in the middle of a group of people.
You tend to hold onto your thoughts until you have something important to say, and even then you're not comfortable imposing your ideas on others unless you know they're truly interested.
You don't enjoy talking for the sake of talking, and you have no desire to be the center of attention.
You are an honest, fair person. You don't lie or cheat to get ahead. You treat others with respect and hope for the same in return.
You do not feel that you are above the rules that everyone else follows; you are definitely not willing to do whatever it takes to get ahead.
You like your own company; you're a very interesting person. Tracking your own mental processes, knowing what you're thinking and why you do what you do, is important to you. Often, what's going on in your mind is more compelling than what's going on outside. For the most part, those with a high score on the "introspective" trait enjoy reading, taking long walks, learning new things, and other solitary activities.
You are not someone who is constantly looking to be among a group of friends; you never feel bored when you are by yourself.
You are constantly coming up with new ideas. For you, the world as it exists is just a jumping-off place; what's going on inside your mind is often more interesting than what's going on outside.
You don't feel that the road to success is to be a realist and stick to the program; you never stop yourself from coming up with new ideas or telling the world what you're thinking about.
You are a private person, not very comfortable in a big group, and view excessive socializing as a waste of time.
You not prefer hanging out with others to spending time alone; you do not tend to feel at home in a crowded room, club, stadium, or auditorium.
You are comfortable in your own skin and don't need to throw your weight around. You'll often choose to be the one who is told what to do rather than the one who's doing the telling, and you sometimes avoid confrontations even if it means that you won't get your way.
You aren't interested in making others bend to your will or in always dishing out criticism. You're not a pushy person, and you like it that way.
You may be comfortable on your home turf, but you have a tendency to be self-conscious in an unfamiliar environment. While you're usually at ease with your friends, you can be a little skittish around strangers.
You usually don't feel at home in unfamiliar settings or with new people. When you get rattled, you don't necessarily recover instantly.
Hahaha...pretty much true...I think...Well let's just say I'm not the easiest person to like or know...

30. Favorite seiyuu ever
I just wanted to show off the manga collection I gathered since I came living to Italy...hahahaha!
I am sorry for the bad quality of the pictures...they were taken with a crappy cell phone...
Without further ado...this is part of my manga collection since some of it is at my sister's house and she is not home right now....
I bought "Aishiteruze Baby" because I loved the anime a lot.Yuzu and Kippei are so cute!The story is not out of the ordinary,but it's lovely and touching!
This is my "Bleach" collection so far...it includes Bleach 2nd novel "The Honey Dish Rhapsody"...I postponed buying "Bleach" since I wanna buy some other stuff first...
This is the "Blood +" manga collection.It has 5 volumes in the main series (a little bit different from the story in the anime) 2 in the "Adagio" series(I have only volume 2 in the picture since volume 1 is at my sister's place) and the "Yakujoushi" oneshot (which I have in another picture with Kisaragi Hirotaka's manga collection).
The pride and joy of my manga collection:"Death Note".This is by far the best manga series I've read up until now.
This awesome banner or poster or whatever you want to call it is one of the dearest items in my collection.It's made on canvas,not paper and though it cost me a good 25 euro I don't regret buying it.I only wish I had my own place so I could hang it in my room!
"Honey and Clover" is the best shoujo manga ever!I'm still waiting for volume 8 so I can finally complete the series!
This is "Trigun" the complete series which includes 2 volumes of "Trigun" and 14 volumes of "Trigun Maximum".This is actually the first complete manga series I bought.
This is the "Trigun" anime DVD box....I am sorry for the bad quality of the picture!^_^;
This is "Wild Adapter" volumes 1-6 since it's curently being published.I started buying it because of Tokito and Kubota which are the main characters in the "Araiso Private High School Students Council Executive Committee" OVA's.In fact in the Araiso story they are living in a parallel universe....
I love the story a lot in fact.It's a bit violent,but it's very interesting...Every time I read this manga I hear Morimori's voice in my head (since he is the one who voiced Kubota in the Wild Adapter drama CDs and the Araiso OVAs).
"Honey and Honey Drops".I actually bought this for my sister since she loved the OVAs.
"Versailles no Bara"or "Lady Oscar" is my favourite anime of all times.So I bought the manga without hesitation.I highly recommend this title for any anime or manga lover out there!
"Kuroshitsuji" volumes 1-4...it's currently being published in Italy...What can I say?I loved the anime,so I bought the manga...Damn I adore this Sebastian illustrations on the covers!The one with the glove kills me....so smexy!
"Naruto"...I bought some random volumes because I'm still not sure if I should buy the entire series...and the "Guide to the Manga" volumes 2 and 3...
"InuYasha" volumes 1-9...It's on a reprint right now and since "InuYasha"is one of my fave anime I thought I'd buy the manga,but damn!it has 70 volumes!O__________O
DOGS...I decide to buy the manga after seeing the DOGS OVAs....mainly for Badou.The series has 1 oneshot called "DOGS:Stray Dogs Howling in the Dark"(on which the OVAs were based)and "DOGS Bullets and Carnage"which is the main series.I have volumes 2-5 (I am waiting for volume 1 and the rest of the series).
"Gokinjo Monogatari" volumes 1-2...since it's currently being published.This manga is related to "Paradise Kiss".It's in fact about Mikako and Tsutomu,Miwako's sister and brother-in-law.
"Jigoku Shoujo" volumes 1-4.I decided to buy it because I loved the 3 seasons of the anime....
"Vampire Knight" volumes 1-2 in the picture since volumes 3-9 are at my sister's house.
"Beelzebub" vol 1 and "Ao no Exorcist" vol 1.They've just started publishing them.I decided to buy them since I love both anime series a lot!
Now we got to the fujoshi corner...the bl manga collection!!!
"Boku no Koe"vol 1 and the only Youka Nitta manga published in Italy.
"Crimson Spell" vol 2-3.I'm still waiting for vol 1.
"Viewfinder" vol 1-4 plus vol 1 in the French version which Manon brought me !
"Kusatta Kyoushi no Houteishiki"vol 1-8.I need the last 2 volumes to complete the series.
"Kyuuso wa Cheese no Yume Miru"...I need the second volume...I bought this because I listened to the Drama CDs and then read the manga online...This is actually one of my fave BL stories.
"Play Boy Blues" series.I bought this because of the drama CDs...I wish they'd publish Shiuko Kano's "PUNCH" series too.
And the Kisaragi Hirotaka manga collection!!!!!!!
"Innocent Bird" complete.AWESOME!!!!
"Brother x Brother" vol 1-2 and "Uchi no Tantei Shirimasen ka" (thanks Manon for "Uchi no Tantei...).
"GATE"vol 1-3 and the "Blood + Yakoujoushi" oneshot.
I still own some more manga,but I have it at my sister's place!
And my 2 artbooks...Sorry for the crappy pic!^_^;
That was it!Take care!
Both taken fromchisaihoshi
I was surprised to see how many cool charas were born under the sign of Pisces....hehehehe!
Ishida-papa,never have thought he was a Pisces,he is way too cool!Hooray for the awesome papa born the same day I was!
I know he is a fictional character and still...
Oops!My anime harem looks more like a Bleach harem....Well with all the bishies going around in Bleach and only a few to choose...coz Renji is there on my top list too...Bishida also.Sorry Renji,Ishida,but I could only choose 8...
So I moved out from my sister's room this week.I rented a room in a house in Udine.Went looking for a job too,but no luck for now.
The room I rented is small it barely fits a single bed and an wardrobe and it doesn't have air conditioning like the other two bedrooms in the house and the girl I rented the room from doesn't want to use the boiler for heating yet because she says it would be too expensive,it will be used when it really gets cold.But I am cold dammit!At least she lets her air conditioning on and the door to her room open so I can get some heat into my own room.
These are my updates from the real land of Hetalia where I'm currently residing!
And now let's get to the real reason behind this post.
LOVELY MORIMORI PICTURES FROM HIS BLOG!
He is so amazingly cute and sweet and funny!Gotta love his awesomeness as a seiyuu and as a human being...."huge fangirl squee"
I hope you enjoyed this small pic spam.....
Best wishes from the land of Hetalia....Pasta for you all...and sauced mackrel....

REBLOG to spread a message of love, unity and peace.
Darn it's 3.30 am and I just finished the cleaning in the restaurant's kitchen.I did because I am so very tired.I left poor sis to finish up alone because I'm beat.The bottom line is I WILL NEVER EVER IN MY LIFE WORK AGAIN IN THE KITCHEN OF A RESTAURANT IN SUMMER.IT'S UTTER HELL WITH THIS HEAT.
And on top of it I had some darn 'puter problems that drove absolutely nuts.
Anyhow I bought myself the 160 GB iPod and it needs to be restored.Damn!And the iPod software update will take like 13 hours to download.0_o(lol I feel like murdering someone).
So since here in Corno di Rosazzo we have "GranFest" which is a fiesta of the wine producers in the region "Il Postiglione"(which is the place sis works at) was busy as hell.We even had a marching band coming at noon.
Sis and I became friends with the 2 guys that came to sing at the retaurant today.They even made a playlist with the songs sis and I wanted to hear.Nice guys!We chatted for a bit when we didn't have clients.
They were truly impressed by our knowledge of music ( huge grin here).They even even offered themselves to share the music they had on their iTunes with me,but my iPod didn't work properly.But tomorrow it will definitely work.
While I was around doing nothing much I downloaded "Seitokachou ni Chuukoku"OVA 2 and "The Tyrant Falls in Love"OVA 1.OOOOOOOOO____________________
I so do hope they will turn "Kimi ga Koi ni Oboreru" into an anime too.("keeps fingers crossed")
Went the manga store to take the manga I ordered and found another title by Hirotaka Kisaragi.Bought it on the spot.It was volume 1 from "Innocent Bird"(loves the angel x demon theme of the manga),but then again I became a huge Kisaragi-sensei fan after I bought "Blood+ Yakoujoshi".On the back cover I saw they will publish "Crimson Spell" in Italy.HAPPY!Maybe they'll publish "Viewfinder" also.(wonders if there's an "Innocent Bird" BLCD out there,goes to check soon).
I'm off to bed now coz it's 4.30 am and I have to start workin at 9.30 am in the morning.
As usual this was bluesea81 currently residing in Corno di Rosazzo in real Hetalia.
Oh,man! I've posted nothing on LJ for 29 weeks! More than half an year!
Well nothing much happened! Maria,the person I worked for died in April so I took the opportunity, since my contract ended,to go home for a short holiday.It was supposed to be short,but I ended up staying home for 2 months.It wasn't a very happy reunion so to speak,but I got to see and spend time with my nieces.
I came back to Italy on Tuesday morning after more than 30 hours on a bus!I'm so taking the plane next time!!!
I'm currently staying with my sister in Gramogliano,Corno di Rosazzo.This is such a beautiful place!I'll post some pics with this place soon!
So this is it for now!
I gotta go now!It's dinner time and I'm hungry!
And after dinner I have to download iTunes coz I got me the 160GB iPod!:)
Thank you dear lady_black_cat for the email you sent me while I was away!Thanks to erah_haruna205 for her concern too!She sent me a nudge to remind me that I haven't posted in a long time! It's good to know people care about me!"blushes"
Besides working I'm not doing much,except for downloading BLCDs and buying manga and anime DVDs.BLCDs and anime keep me sane(as sane as I can be under the circumstances) and make me forget about the shit I have to take every day.
I wanted to say more,but my brain is on a hiatus coz I'm really tired though is 1 p.m..
I don't even know why I posted today,just wanted to let you know I'm still alive.
I wanted to talk about some other stuff but I am tired and depressed.
Before I go just let me ask you what manga titles would you recommend to me (the genre is not important).I kinda saw the titles I wanted to buy and I am looking for new ones to add to my collection.
Have a nice week!
As always this was bluesea81 currently residing in Udine in real Hetalia.Hugs!
And for days I had this existential dilemma....should I post or not...
Last week I had a fight with Iole.Again!And she asked me how many years of school I attended.When her sister Maria told her I even went to university,but I didn't get my Bachelor's Degree she was like:"Why are you doing this kind of job if you are so educated?Because this is a shitty job(she actually said that "lavoro di merda" which translates into shitty job)and I wouldn't do it if I were you!"This was on Saturday after on Monday I had a nervous breakdown because of her,I mean a real breakdown with hysterical crying and all the stuff that goes with it.We talked and we settled things.Or so I thought!Coz this week she started again.So this Tuesday we fought twice!Once in the morning and once in the evening.In the evening I even went to my room because I had no wish to fight with her.but did she stop?No!Coz at some point I got thirsty and went to the kitchen to drink some water.She followed me to my room and we started shouting again.Maria goes to the bathroom,sees us screaming at each other and shakes her head tiredly.We settle things again.She even told me not to say anything to Cristina(she is the person who hired me to take care of her mom,Maria,Iole's niece) because she would get angry at her if she knew we were fighting.But today was even worse.While I was taking my shower she had an argument with Maria.since today I was free from duty from noon I was supposed to be off at 12 a.m.,but Maria asked me to have lunch with them so I ate there.When I asked Iole if she would like to come and eat she was like"No,I don't wanna!"I was a little surprised!So I told Maria to ask her to come to eat.And then all the hell broke loose!She came to the kitchen,insulted Maria and left.I felt like shit.And so I got to go out at 2 p.m after I cleaned the kitchen and put Maria to bed,coz Iole didn't come to eat.WTF!
And on top of all my sister who was supposed to come to Udine this Sunday had to postpone her arrival for a week.And I was so expecting to see her after 6 months!I even had the whole day planned dammit!
So these are my updates.I wish to you all a life better than mine.Ja ne!
WAVES HAND AT kikeek ! I HOPE YOU CAN FIX YOUR COMPUTER SOON!HUGS!
I BOUGHT 2 PAIRS OF SHOES WITH 25 EURO AND A BAG WITH 4,50 EURO TODAY!SATISFIED ABOUT THAT! BOUGHT INSALATA DI MARE(SEA FRUIT SALAD) FOR LUNCH.ENJOYED IT UNTIL I SAW TENTACLES!OH,IT WAS OCTOPUS,IT FREAKED ME OUT!DARN!ATE IT ALL THE SAME!IT WAS GOOD!MY FIRST TIME EATING OCTOPUS!I HAD A LITTLE TRAUMA BOUT THAT!AND I HAD TO EAT 900 GRAMES OF ICE CREAM COZ STOOPID ME FORGOT IT WAS MY AFTERNOON OFF AND HAD NO FRIDGE TO STORE IT IN!BAKA BLUESEA!MY MOM WAS ROFL WHEN I TOLD HER BOUT THE SALAD ON THE PHONE!STOOPIDO!
I KEEP HAVING TROUBLE COZ THE HEAT IS KILLING ME!DARN WEATHER!
WATCHED EP 18 OF "07 GHOST".LIKES THIS ANIME SO MUCH!"HETALIA" WAS NOT UPDATED SO NO "HETALIA" TODAY.
WAITS FOR lady_black_cat TO SEE IF SHE CAN CHAT ON MESS TODAY.
WATCHES "GRAVITATION" IN THE MEANTIME!
YESTERDAY WHILE WATCHING A TV SHOW ON TV I WAS REMINDED OF ALL THE THINGS I LOVE ABOUT ITALY!THE GOOD MUSIC,THE HISTORY,RAOUL BOVA,THAT JOIE DE VIVRE THE ITALIANS HAVE!
WELL NOT MUCH OF A POST!
AS ALWAYS THIS WAS bluesea81 RESIDING IN UDINE,IN REAL HETALIA!HAVE A NICE DAY!
PS: JUST WANTED TO SAY "HAPPY BDAY!"TO HAYAMI-SAN COZ STOOPID ME FORGOT IT WAS HIS BDAY ON AUGUST 2ND!DAMN!WHAT KIND OF A FAN AM I?SO "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" HAYAMI-SAN,MAY ALL YOUR WISHES COME TRUE!"KICKS HERSELF FOR THAT"
Well first of all I wanna say that having to be away all day on my day off sucks coz all I wanna do is have some sleep.Damn!
Second of all I listened to the "Sweet Pool" BLCDs and I was freaked out.Too much weird stuff going on.Rape and biting and ...uh..not for yours truly.Mondo weirdo stuff...freaky...I have to admit that Kishio's voice acting was great,but the thing that happened at the end of the rape...scared the hell out of me...I like my BL shiny and not too complicated with no rape and weird stuff going on,let's keep it normal,well as normal as BL can be.The bottom line is that I liked Kishio's performance,he was great and seme for a change,even if he was a monster.Midorin...well no comment here.And Hatano Wataru...I still don't like his voice,it still irritates me to a great extent,as much as I try I can't help it,but dislike his voice.Sorry my dearlady_black_cat but I don't like Waccha's voice and I think I never will,so our opinion is different on this subject.
On the other hand after listening to "Kojin Kyouju" BLCD I totally fell in love with Hirakawa Daisuke.I only knew him as Franz from "Gankutsuou" and only after I listened to this BLCD I fully understood why lady_black_cat said he has one of the sweetest voices.It is a soothing voice,at least for me it is.It's up there on my top list along Hayami-san,Morimori,JunJun,SekiTosh,Suzu
Episode 17 from "07-Ghost" was so great.Frau was so cool as a kid. I think I developed a big crush on Frau.It hasn't happened to me in a long while to actually fangirl and squee so much over an anime character.I am so glad they decided to make more than 13 episodes.FRAU RULLZ! And JunJun is a GOD!Likes Haruken more and more with each episode and cannot wait to see what happens next."Bleach" and "Naruto Shippuuden" started to bore me.Too long!I need a conclusion!I mean it took them like 117 episodes to realize that in order to find Sasuke they need to find Itachi first!And ninja were supposed to be intelligent people!Guh!
"Hetalia Axis Powers" episode 27 was amazingly funny and I think this is one of the most intelligent anime I've ever had the honour of watching.Germany cleaning after Italy was totally amazing.And NamiDai is so great as Italy.It's hard to believe he is the same guy who voiced Ulquiorra in "Bleach".I have only words of praise for this anime,I am happy they decided to make a second season for it!
http://www.mediafire.com/?r=hddpi this is the folder that has the songs I uploaded for you my dear lady_black_cat .Enjoy them!
This is kinda it !
As always this was bluesea81 residing in Udine in real Hetalia!Good luck to you all!
PS :Shopping is really therapeutical! I never thought I would enjoy shopping!But with the sales season being open in July and August and having money in my pockets for a change allowed me to buy really good stuff with little money.And that cheered me up!OMG!I guess I'm a woman after all!Shocker!
Today my sister left for Italy.Just talked to her.She's at the border,leaving Romania.She'll be in Florence by tomorrow.Oh so happy to have her here!My brother left the country also,but for Austria.I heard he's not doing too well.I'm sorry to hear that!
I'll be signing the contract tomorrow morning at 10.30 am.So glad to finally be sure that I have a job with a contract and all the benefits that come with it.It's al easier if you are working legally.You have medical insurance which is a must these days.I'm glad that my patience paid off.I'm well aware that it will be hard,especially since Iole and Maria argue almost every day,but I'm used to it by now.I don't take it too seriously anymore.Still I have to admit that it affects me all the same since I am the kind of person who hates arguments.I need peace in order to function properly.But it's not like it will kill me,I need to learn how to face life and all its hardships.To take the bull by the horns as the saying goes.
I took some stuff fromseiyuu andboyslove_cd and chatted withgizzi my newest LJ friend.She is so nice and sweet and we share the same passion for the wonderful actor and human being that is Hugh Jackman.Oh,loves him dearly.
I just want to thank all my LJ buddies that have been so supportive of me during these hard times.You know who you are!I will always treasure your friendship!
Congratz to kikeek for her new job!Hang in there buddy! And good luck to lady_black_cat on finding a job!
I saw that interview with Morimori at Anime Expo on morimori_daily .Oh he was so sweet and OMG! I was actually perving about him!Jesus!What seiyuu can do to you!Morimori come to Italy too!Nevermind!
Orz!I feel so tired!Just waited to see if lady_black_cat will be able to chat but no luck today.Well some other time!
As always this was bluesea81 residing in Udine in real Hetalia!
This post is a continuation of this one:http://bluesea81.livejournal.com/129
Since I asked kikeek to give me another fandom instead of "Chrno Crusade" and she gave me seiyuu and if I need specifics Toshiyuki Morikawa(Morimori) I decided to do both.I hope you don't mind,but these fandoms are close to my heart.And since I have time right now here are my answers.
1.WHAT GOT YOU IN THIS FANDOM IN THE FIRST PLACE?
SEIYUU: I guess it was "InuYasha".Kappei Yamaguchi was the one who made me appreciate seiyuu and their work.But my love for seiyuu really began with "Mirage of Blaze".Show Hayami and Seki Toshihiko were amazing.This is kinda how it all started forme:a heart-wretching story,a good,complicated plot and 2 amazing seiyuu.
MORIMORI: Even though I first heard him as Naraku in "InuYasha","Gallery Fake" was the anime who drew my attention on Morimori as a seiyuu.He voices the main character,Fujita Reiji,and he was so much fun for me.And from this a beautiful love story began.then I saw "Fuyu no Semi" which made me adore Morimori as I do now.

4.DO YOU PARTICIPATE IN THIS FANDOM?Sometimes I do.
5.DO YOU THINK PEOPLE SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN THIS FANDOM?If you like him you should,Tatsuya has the potential to become one of Japan greatest actors.
Phew!That was a long post!
Since Hugh came to UK to promote XMO:Wolverine he was practically in every TV show and man that made me sooooooooooo haaaaaaaapppppyyyyyy!!!!I love this man.He is so gorgeous and graceful and funny!
I loved this show.Too bad Lady Gaga was in it!
Just read chapter 350 from "Bleach" and I have to say that I am disappointed.The story was so PREDICTABLE! Ichigo's down,Inoue is whining as she always does,wondering what to do.C'mon!Such a cliche!And then Ichigo wakes up because he has to protect her.MEH! I expected more!
The only thing I liked was Ishida.Come to think of it I kinda am clueless as why he loves Inoue.Oh,I know why:she is so beautiful and innocent,right?"I have to protect her" kind of syndrome...Wow! Men really think they do women justice with that?
Well I just wanted to vent my frustration.I really love "Bleach",I really do.But Rukia's and Kaien's story was so much more beautiful.
Inoue was a character with a lot of potential for development,instead Kubo-san chose to keep her at such a cliche level.I do miss Rukia or Yoruichi.
Sorry for the ranting.this subject will be developed further in the next days.Bye-bye for now! Have a nice week-end!
Well you might think that the first snow it's not a special event,but for me it is.There's nothing more beautiful than to see big,beautiful,soft snowflakes coming down from the sky,covering everything with a pure,white blanket.But this year's first snow was even more special because I shared it with my nieces.It's so wonderful to see children enjoying snow,receiving it with a joy and an innocence that fill your heart with warm,wonderful feelings.
Today was a good day.
I wish a great week-end to you all.
I don't know if you've seen this,but it made me laugh so hard that I had to share this.Enjoy it as much as I did.The anime is called Nerima Daikon Brothers.
The week-end has finally began.Free from work?Maybe.I'm not sure I won't be working this week-end also.Something seems to come up almost every time I think I can relax.Bureaucracy is a mood killer.
I've managed to make a new lj friend this week.Not bad.It seems that seiyuu not only entertain people,but also bring them together.
I saw on youtube that the 2nd Ikoku Irokoi Romantan OVA will be released soon.Yay!I'm looking forward to that.I don't know what took them so long.Kentarou Ito is such a wonderful uke("drools") and Suwabe-san as Al...wow!(melts here).Well enough of that!
I don't have interesting to say,I just wanted to let people know that I'm alive and well,a little tired though.That's it!As they say:la comedia e finita.Or not?
A nice week-end people!
It's 8:13 p.m. and I just finished working.I'm really starting to hate this job that doesn't even allow me to have a peaceful week-end.The only good thing about this is that I can earn some extra money that is much needed.
I feel exhausted,I didn't have decent night sleep in almost 2 months.I leave home in the morning and I return at 10 p.m. almost every night.Thank God I work close to home!And on top of all I live in a crowded house and I can hardly find a moment to just sit and relax all by myself.
In moments like these I really do miss being a child!Life was so simple then!
For those who read this post and think this is stupid,just ignore it.
A nice week-end to you all!
I also finished rewriting "Miki's Song" and will post it to my lj soon.
See ya !
I haven't posted to my lj in a while.So 'Hello,everybody".Nothing much happened in my life and what happened is neither interesting, nor it's worth talking about .
I had a minor surgery that kept me in hospital for some time,I found a new job that is currently taking most of my time and my mom came back from Italy.
My sister got beatten by her husband and she and her babies are living with me and my folks, so it's kind of crowded in my house and I have no privacy whatsoever.Sometimes I wish I could just leave and never come back home.
In the meantime I've finally managed to finish reading "Taiko" and I saw "Honey and Clover" which is one of the best anime I've seen lately.I loved the bitter-sweet story,but most of all I loved the insert songs.My favourite one is "Happy Birthday";I can't get enough of it.
I succeeded in downloading my favourite anime of all times which is "Versailles no Bara",also known as "Lady Oscar" in Europe.This is the anime that made me love anime,it is the kind of story that you can never forget even if it's more than ten years since you first saw it.
So I decided to make a top 10 of my favourite anime inviting you to do the same so I can find some more interesting anime to watch.
1-Versasilles no Bara(Lady Oscar)
5-Mirage of Blaze
6-Honey and Clover
9-Yu Yu Hakusho
I would also like to know what are your favourite anime soundtracks.Mine are from Cowboy Bebop,Mirage of Blaze(anime and OVA),Honey and Clover ,Death Note and Inuyasha.
So this is what I had to say for today.Have a nice week-end!
It seems that I stumble upon Morimori a lot lately,he is practically in almost every anime I'm watching ,in "Junjou Romantica","Saiunkoku Monogatari" and now "Saint Beast".I love him and watching animes that feature his voice entertain me a lot.Another seiyuu that I found in the animes I'm watching is Kentarou Ito which became one of my favourite seiyuus.He is in my top alongside Moromori,MikiShin, Sho Hayami and Toshihiko Seki.I just love him in "Junjou Romantica",he made me like Hiro-san better than any other character and in "Bleach".He is so funny that I always feel better "after seeing" him.And I really need some cheering up these days when every thing turned out for the worst in my private life.
I hope this wasn't too boring for you guys.See you!
My niece's b-day was o.k.,everyone enjoyed the cake I made(it was a little too sweet for my taste this time ).
While browsing through the net I found this great site that has a lot of anime,video game and movie OSTs available for download:htpp:\\gh.ffshrine.org and began downloading some stuff from there.
I was happy to find out that there's a new version of "Fuyu no Semi"OVA.I would have bought it ,but it is too expensive for my limited budget,so I'm waiting for a kind soul to upload it(I saw some screen caps someone made and it looked great).
A nice week to you all.
Now I'm busy preparing for my niece's birthday(she'll be 1 year old on the 8th of May) and on the 15th I'll be finally leaving for Italy...to work,not to have fun.
In the meantime I found some interesting anime to watch:"Persona,Trinity Soul","Devil May Cry"(cool looking main character with Morimori's voice),"X Tv" and"Vampire Knight" and most of all I finally managed to find "Gallery Fake" on a site where I can download it from(main character with Morimori's voice again).I even tried to watch "Junjou Romantica"(mostly because Morimori is in it).
My friend George was in town,but we missed one another(cries here).
These were"Bluesea's Adventure's on Easter Holiday 2008".
And a little message for lady black cat:I know I promised you a gift and I intend to keep that promise,but I don't really know when it will be done.Sorry for that.
A good day to you all.
That makes me sad.I wish I found out about him earlier.
I stood awake until 3 a.m. last night to see the entire 6 episodes,though I was very sleepy.Justin Kirk was so great as Prior Walter.I won't say anything about Al Pacino or Meryl Streep or Jeffrey Wright.
I haven't read Tony Kushner's play,but I hope to do so one day.
Here it is the next chapter from "MIKI'S SONG"(for those interested in reading it).
MIKI'S SONG CHAPTER THREE
Ryo stood by the window watching the courtyard.It was a beautiful early summer day.The air was filled with fragrance.
A perfect day to fall in love...
"Watanabe-kun are you alright?"a familiar voice asked in a concerned tone.
Ryo turned around slowly.His black eyes met Miki's serene grey eyes.
Those eyes will be the end of me...they are so beautiful...
"I'm fine...don't worry,Tokugawa-kun",Ryo said as soon as he could find his words.
Since Miki became his classmate,Ryo realized that he was drawn to him.And he felt unhappy every time he saw Miki talking to a girl during recess.
Miki had become very popular among girls and Ryo soon realized that he was jealous whenever Miki paid attention to a girl.That is why he felt so miserable.He would never have imagined that one day he would fall in love with a man.The more he thought about it the more Ryo convinced himself that he had fallen in love with Miki.He had fallen in love since the day they bumped into each other at the airport.
Miki returned home late in the evening.He had visited doctor Yoshinaga's consulting room and the news were not good.He really had leukemia as doctor Michaels had told him before returning to Japan.
I really am sick...I hoped that it was a mistake,but it's not...Dr.Yoshinaga confirmed dr.Michaels' diagnosis...
He sat down on the bed.He spent the whole night thinking about what to do.When the dawn came Miki had already decided how he would behave from that day on.
So without any further ado here it is the 2nd chapter from MIKI'S SONG.Enjoy it.
I really can't believe it...The guy I bumped into at the airport yesterday turned out to be Miya's cousin...
"Is there something wrong,Ryo-kun?"
Reiko's voice brought Ryo back to reality.He seemed lost for a few seconds,but he eventually answered her question.
"No,it's just that I..."
"He is probably surprised to meet me again so soon",Miki suddenly said with an amused expression on his face."We bumped into each other at the airport yesterday."
"Let's go inside.The movie is going to start soon",Mitsuru said putting an end to that awkward moment between Miki and Ryo.
What's wrong with you ?Ryo asked himself while trying to pay attention to what was happening on the screen.You behaved like an idiot a few minutes ago.What will Miki think of you?
Miki on the other hand was enjoying the movie.It was not the kind of movie he usually liked to watch,but that comedy was really entertaining.
Reiko,who was sitting next to Miki,enjoyed his presence.She looked at him a few times and got to the conclusion that Miki was the most beautiful boy she had ever seen.
When the movie ended Mitsuru suggested that they should go get a pizza.Haruka and Reiko agreed,but Miki declined the invitation.
"I have to decline your invitation,Mitsuru-san.I am tired... The jet lag and all....I just want to go home and sleep.I apologize..."
"I should've known that you must feel tired since Miya and I kept you awake last night...I'll take you home,Miki-chan.We can get a pizza some other time,right Haruka?"
Haruka nodded."Of course,my dear."
"Absolutely not,Mitsuru-san.I can go home by taxi."
"Or I can take Miki-kun home,"Ryo found himself saying without thinking twice.
"I don't want to bother you,Watanabe-kun."
"It's no bother.It would be my pleasure to give you a lift home."
"If that's the case I accept your kind offer.Thank you."
Miki hardly spoke on the way home.Ryo looked at him from the corner of his eye and noticed that Miki was very pale.
"Are you alright,Miki-kun?You are pale."
"I'm just tired,Watanabe-kun.It's nothing that a good night sleep can't cure.Thank you for the ride home."
"Don't mention it.It was my pleasure.Good night!"
"God night to you too.Thanks again."
Ryo watched Miki until he got into the house.The feeling that he had met Miki some where before was stronger than ever.
While he drove back home he tried to remember where he had met Miki before,but he could not.
Maybe it's my imagination...but he seems familiar ...Like someone dear to me...
Miki went to his room as soon as he entered the house.He did not even eat dinner.He was feeling dizzy and nauseated.He went to the bathroom and threw up in the closet.Soon after that he felt a little better.
He opened the wardrobe and took a small bag out.It contained some medicine bottles.He took one pill from each bottle and swallowed them with water.
I have to hide these pills somewhere where they can't be found....
After he found a place to hide the pills Miki went out on the balcony and lit a cigarette.
Motto:"I love you without knowing how,or when,or from where.
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
Miki stood in the doorway watching his cousin,Miya.She looked so beautiful and happy like any other bride to be would.He had decided to tell his family the reason for his return the same day he arrived in Japan,but the news of Miya's getting married in September made him give up on that.
How can I tell her now?She is so happy.This is the most beautiful time for her...How can I spoil that?
"Why are you standing there like a mummy,Miki-chan?"
Mitsuru's voice startled Miki.He turned around and smiled.It amazed Miki how easily he could fabricate expressions since the day that terrible news was dropped on him.
"I was just admiring Miya-san.She looks very beautiful."
Both young men admired Miya,who was speaking on the phone in the living room,for a few more seconds and then headed towards the kitchen.Mitsuru made some tea for both of them and tried to find out the real reason for which Miki came back to Japan,but Miki's answer was the same as the night before:"I couldn't stand living in America anymore.I missed Japan too much.I decided that is better to finish high school here."
Mitsuru felt there was something more,but he decided it was better not to insist.Miki did not like to be questioned.He was the type of person who did not like to talk about himself.He had always been quiet and reserved and discreet.
"My girlfriend and I wanted to see a movie tonight with some friends.Come with us",Mitsuru finally said.
Miki thought about saying no,but the look in his cousin's eyes made him accept the offer.It would be good to be among young,carefree people.
"Alright,Mitsuru-san.I'd love to."
Mitsuru smiled.America had not changed Miki at all.He was the same courteous,polite self.
Out of his three cousins Miki had always been his favourite.He liked to play piano with him,even if he found piano lessons very hard.Miki was a natural talent while Mitsuru only took piano lessons to please his mother.He wondered if Miki continued to play the piano while he was abroad.He missed listening to him.He played the piano so well.
"Come on Ryo,don't make me beg",Reiko shouted on the phone."Haruka and Mitsuru are going to the movies and asked me to go with them.Please come with us.It would be good for you to take a break.And besides I already told my sister you'll be coming too,so you can't refuse."
Ryo sighed.Reiko was a spoiled brat that always found a way to get what she wanted,but that did not upset him.They had been friends since elementary school and even dated for a little while.They went out together to the movies sometimes or hanged out with their friends and of course Ryo helped her with her homework.
"O.k.I could use a break after all."
"You're the best.Come to my house in half an hour.Bring the car.We'll meet Mitsuru at the mall."
Twenty minutes later Ryo arrived at Reiko's house.Haruka answered the door.
"Come in,Ryo.Would you like some tea while Reiko is getting ready?"
Miki bought a pack of cigarettes while Mitsuru went looking for his girlfriend.Then he went in front of the movie theatre.Mitsuru waved his hand when he saw his cousin.He was accompanied by two young women.
"This is my cousin,Tokugawa Miki."
"Nice to meet you",Miki said,"I'm Miki."
"These are my girlfriend,Fujita Haruka and her sister,Fujita Reiko."
"Nice to meet you, Miki-san",Haruka said politely.
"Nice to meet you,Tokugawa-kun",said Reiko with a wide smile."I never knew that Mitsuru-san had such a gorgeous cousin."
"Reiko,an young lady should not say such things",said Haruka with an embarrassed look on her face.
"I know,nee-san.I apologize,Miki-kun."
"There's no need for that.Thank you for the compliment",Miki answered with a smile.
Now I'm sorry that I asked Ryo to come along.If only I knew ...
"I'm sorry I made you all...",Ryo's words broke off when he saw Miki standing in front of him.
Who is he?And what is he doing here?
Miki looked straight into Ryo's eyes and smiled.The young man standing in front of him looked as if he had seen a ghost.
"Let me introduce you",Mitsuru finally said."This is my cousin,Tokugawa Miki.Miki this is Watanabe Ryo.He is Miya's fiance's brother."
"Nice to meet you,Watanabe-kun."
Ryo did not answer.He just stood there dumbstruck.
So because it's a beautiful day I begin posting "MIKI'S SONG",the BL story I began writing a while back.
If you read it and want to comment on it you are more than welcome.I apologize in advance for any grammar mistake.Enjoy it and please tell me your opinion(good or bad).Be honest!I'm a big girl, I can take criticism.Your opinion will help me improve my writing skills.Or will convince me that I'm no good and I should do something else with my time.
Before I begin I'd like to dedicate this story to a few of my LJ friends:LADY BLACK CAT(who has become a good friend in the short period of time that passed since I joined LJ and who shares my love for Morimori and Harudaki),QUAINT TWILIGHT(whose translations of the M.o.B. novels are always a pleasure to read and who loves Seki Toshihiko's voice like I do), LABINGI(who shares my passion for writing and M.o.B.),MIAMIARA(who loves M.o.B. and Naoe kike I do),LUGIA NENA.
So this is it.
LA GUARDIA AIRPORT ,NEW YORK,UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Tokugawa Miki waited for his flight to be announced.He was returning home to Japan after studying for two years in a boarding school in New York.He left Japan after his parents and his two siblings died in a car accident.Now another terrible news made him return to the home he left behind.
When his flight was finally announced he took his handbag and boarded the plane.He opened a book and began reading.He found reading very relaxing,especially when he was traveling.The person sitting next to him was an older woman who seemed to feel uneasy.
"Are you alright?Do you need anything?" he asked politely turning his head towards the 45 year old woman who just visited her brother,a Japanese building engineer who was working at a project in New York.
She looked at him and smiled.It was obvious that she did not speak English.So he asked her the same question in Japanese.She answered that she was afraid of flying.Miki gave her his CD player,telling her that the music will help her relax.Soon after the woman fell asleep.
Miki continued to read for a while.
Ryo rushed into the airport building.
I hope I'm not late or my aunt will be pissed.Why did I go shopping with Reiko?
He was so distracted that he bumped into someone and fell down on his buttocks.
"Are you alright?"a gentle voice asked him in an amused tone."You should pay more attention to where you're going."
Ryo looked up and his eyes met the calm,smiling eyes of a tall young man wearing a black suit.Ryo found himself staring at the young man while he helped him get up on his feet.
"I'm sorry",Ryo finally said,"for bumping into you".
"That's fine.But be more careful in the future."
Saying those words the tall young man headed towards the exit.Ryo watched him until he disappeared from his sight.Then he suddenly remembered his aunt.
"I'm sorry for being late",Ryo said when he found his aunt .He took her luggage and drove her home.While he was driving he kept thinking about the man he bumped into in the airport.He had such beautiful eyes.He felt so strange when he looked into those eyes.It was as if he had seen them somewhere before.
Who was he?And where have I seen him before?
So that's it for now.I hoped you enjoyed reading it.More to come next week.
It's spring again.The snow and the ice melted,the flowers and the trees are blossoming,birds are singing once again.
I walk down the street,heading home.There are lots of people selling flowers.It's that time of the year again.The First of March and then Mother's Day.I look around,the air is filled with fragrance and I smile as I usually do when I see so many flowers.I pick a tiny bouquet of hyacinth flowers.I have always loved hyacinth flowers because they are delicate,yet strong and their perfume is so wonderful.
I get home and I arrange them in a small vase in the living room.I put on some music so I can relax for a while.I sit on the couch and I close my eyes.And then like ghosts my memories come back and haunt me once more.The memories of that awful day when my childhood suddenly ended.
I was about six years old back then.My father gave me some money to buy bread.But I got distracted by a woman that sold flowers on a street corner.The hyacinth flowers were so lovely that I could not help myself and I bought two bouquets.And so I got home with flowers,instead of bread.
My father was not home.So I went to the bathroom. While I was taking a bath my father came home and found out that I did not buy bread,but flowers.He rushed to the bathroom in anger.He pushed me in the tub and kept my head under water until I could not breathe and then he pulled me out.He did that three more times until my aunt stopped him.
I do not remember what happened next until this very day .I remember forgetting about it until I began high school.Then my memories came back with a vengeance.I do not know what made them surface,but that was a very stressfull time for me:new classmates,new teachers and that boy in my class that made me feel like crap every time he addressed to me.
I felt so bad that I even thought about committing suicide.I skipped school for two weeks.My mother found out from one of my teachers who came to my house.I went back to shool,but my agony was far from over.I cried for so many nights and I still cry sometimes when I think about it wondering what I have done to deserve that.
When I tried to talk to my father about it he said that what he had done that day was not so awful,that it only made me scared of water.
I am not scared of water,but I never learnt to swim.
My father words hurt me so much.He did not realize that my childhood ended that day,all that was pure and beautiful in my heart,all the trust and confidence I had in myself and the others were forever gone.
I open my eyes.Tears slid down my face.I look at those beautiful flowers.And I remember the day my childhood ended.
Yesterday,while surfing on the net I found George's blog.George is my best friend and I lost contact with him 4 years ago when he went to college.And that made me so happy.Of course we exchanged contact information and started sending pictures via e-mail.
I know nobody is interested in this particular event in my life,but I just had to share something that made me happy.
I leave you with some words of wisdom that belong to my friend,George:"WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU NOTHING BUT LEMONS...MAKE A LEMONADE."
I've been busy these past 2 weeks.My sister and my nieces got out from the hospital on February 21st.The same day both my nieces threw up and the little one continued throwing up the next day.But now they both are well.
As for me I had a terrible nervous breakdown(I have one every year) and I couldn't sleep well for an entire week.The arrival of spring made me feel a whole lot better.The beginning of spring is my favorite time of the year.
I love trees in bloom,the early spring flowers and the sound of birds singing.
I'm glad I finished "Miki's Song",my first original BL story.It's thanks to labingi who helped me with her kind advice.So if you read this thanks once again.
I end my post hoping that I wasn't too boring.
So I've been running all over this morning:to the hospital,to the market ,home(preparing the meals for my sister and my nieces),to the drug store,to the hospital again.
I finally arrived home at 3:00 p.m.I'll rest a little and then I have to go back to the hospital with the milk for the baby.
I wish you a better week-end than mine.
Here are some quotations about love:
"Love is composed of one soul inhabiting two bodies."(Aristotle)
"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strenght,while loving someone deeply gives you courage."(Lao Tzu)
"Young love is a flame;very pretty,often very hot and fierce,but still only light and flickering.The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals,deep burning,unquenchable."(Henry Ward Beecher)
"Love does not dominate;it cultivates."(Goethe)
"Love makes your soul crawl out of its hiding place."(Zora Neale Hurston)
"Love is life.All,everything that I understand,I understand only because I love.Everything is,everything exists,only because I love."(Leo Tolstoy)
"I love you without knowing how,or when,or from where.
I love you straightforwardly,without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way
than this:where I does not exist nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep."(Pablo Neruda,Love Sonnet XVII)
My "obsession" started almost one year ago when A+ Tv ( aka Animax) broadcast an anime called Mirage of Blaze.The 1st time I couldn't watch it well because the t.v. station encountered some technical problems(episode 1 had no subs,episode 5 had the subs for episode 6 and episode 6 had the subs for episode 5) plus I was working in a bar from 1 p.m to 11 p.m.Still the story touched me,I even cried at the end.Then I got frustrated thinking "That can't be it!"
And so it began.My sister didn't have internet at home back then ,so I spent my free time and my money in internet cafe places trying to find info about this anime.
When my sister had the internet installed I watched the anime online several times,I downloaded the ovas,I tried to find translations of the novels,I downloaded the mangas I could find,the doujinski and all the pictures,wallpapers and fan art I could get,plus the anime and ovas soundtracks.Of course I became a fan of the seiyuus that voice acted for the main characters.I even watched the amvs I found on youtube and veoh,not to mention that I looked for information about the historical events and the people who inspired Kuwabara-sensei.
A year later I still read the novels translations on the net,I still download pictures and wallpapers,I read Japanese historical novels and books about Buddhism.Right now I'm about to finish the 1st volume of Eiji Yoshikawa's novel "Taiko".I even began to learn Japanese.
So this is it.I gained a lot from watching this anime:good books to read,good music to listen to,friends that share my passion and some knowledge about the history,culture and civilization of a country I hope to visit one day.
I hope this wasn't too boring.
