I'm hardly ever on here, I feel kind of bad about that! Anyway, about 5 (maybe 6-7) years ago, I started to make fanvids and even though I was never very good at them, I still enjoyed it. I attempted to make an Arashi crack vid and while I had all the audio for the video laid out, I got too busy with school at the time and inspiration was hard to come by and I guess I must have given up and moved on. But I did manage to finish about 35 seconds of it. So with that said, here are those 35 seconds of glory that is Arashi crack:

On another note, I watched Kazoku Game (FamiGe as the JP fans were calling it) back when it was airing and about the same time, Fall Out Boy released a song called "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark" and I thought they matched so well that I made a video out of it.

So, before I even knew how to use LJ to it's fullest, I was posting more to communities than my own journal and that seems to have caused a lot of confusion, especially when it came to finding some of my older fics; AKA the ones back from when I first started writing.

In particular,Burikaesu.

So without further ado, here is a link to the final chapter, with subsequent links to all chapters in the fic. If you happen upon the cut, just scroll up a little bit to see where Previous Chapters is listed

Hello everyone!

It's been quite some times since I've updated. I feel kinda bad... It feels like I've completely abandoned LJ for a couple other sites or just all together...

I assure you, I haven't, I just don't have anything to post.
I do have some subtitles that I want to post so badly, I'm just afraid to post them for fear that they aren't good enough. I also have quite a few stories in the works but I've been taking my time with writing them, so it's taking me a while to release them.... (I have a 40+ page JunBa/JunToshi I'm only half way through writing).

I hope everyone is doing alright!
I've been hanging in there.
Nothing has been particularly hard. Nor has it been easy.
I've been distracting myself with lots of games on various systems, job hunting and reading manga, watching anime which probably contributes to why I've been so MIA since last year.
I graduated college 1.5 years ago but I don't really have anything to show for it, so I've also been semi-depressed. But saying I'm depressed isn't exactly correct. Maybe lonely is a more correct word. It's harder for me to make friends being out of school and living in a town were all the friends I've had since high school and college I no longer talk to/they've moved away/or they're just busy with their own lives (working/more school/whatever the reason) or they just live in a different country. It's difficult to keep up with everyone.
I keep telling myself that everything will work out but it never really does, or at least that's how I see it, so it just brings me back down.

I don't mean to continue on with this depressing topic because a lot of good things have happened since February!
I'm closer with my Japanese hygienist friend! I helped her adopt a cat back in March/April! She also (semi)introduced me to a boy from Japan looking for American friends or at least someone to practice English with! (Speaking of, I need to bribe him to help with my Japanese). shardaunei has also been really supportive of me and I feel like all our conversations brighten my day just a little bit more. It doesn't matter what we talk about. (Sorry for the shameless plug~ lol)

Speaking of, since I'm not on here as much anymore, if anyone is willing to follow me on twitter, fbook or tumblr, you can find me on all three sites with the same sn: icedragontmr
I'm not very creative when it comes to usernames so I generally keep the same one, lol. It would be great to connect there as well!
I guess that's all for now. I'll do my best to finish the subtitles and my stories. TTFN!

Somehow in the past few years, I went from posting several times a week/month and the last two times I updated were in July and November during really hard times.

But it's 2014 now and I'm so thankful that the bad luck year is over and done with. I have high hopes for this one, astrology even points to one.

I got hired at a new job, at a sporting goods store in January and I'm finally starting on my own on the register. It's terrifying. But I'm no stranger to registers and customer service so it's not bad. I just feel bad not being able to answer questions just yet. Granted I've only worked 3 days, so I still have a ways to go.

I have an explanation for my disappearances (they're just like all my other excuses). My love for video games has torn me away from writing as much fanfiction as I used to (inspiration is a little hard to come by as well). I can't begin to say how elated I am to finally have gotten through some of the games I own in the past few months. It feels good! I, infact, just finished one today, although I have another 7 endings to get through before I can truly say I am finished with it. That game was fucking hard though!! I had to pull up youtube and work through it that way. Seriously. Hardest game I've EVER played, but I regret none of it because the story was fantastic and it's by a favorite game company~ Atlus ♥ Then there's Ni no Kuni, which is unf.... I can't even. So good ♥

Anyway, I'm still actively subbing and I'm still writing fanfiction. I just haven't posted anything due to confidence issues and inspiration failures. I'll try and post something soon, I swear!

It's only the 4th day in a week of 7 days, but already my week has been a whirlwind/rollercoaster/whatever term you want to use.

On Monday, I had to put my cat of 14 (almost 15) years down. He had been sick for a few days before I took him to the vet only to find out that he was suffering from both lung and heart failure. I wish I had noticed it earlier when he first started acting irregular but we aren't all blessed with hindsight.
Almost immediately after, I had to drive 2 hours to another college campus for information on a program that I want to enter. Of course, I was a mess the whole day but I got through my information meeting.
I still haven't even touched anything that I'm supposed to clean and put away from my cat. It's still too hard.

On Tuesday, I went to my class like usual and sometime around noon I received a call for a job to be a waitress at a local family restaurant. After the incident with my cat the day before I was starting to think everything was looking up. I went in that night for two hours and shadowed a little bit. I'd never been a waitress before so it was a little overwhelming but not nearly as stressful or headache-y as it was starting at the law office. Before I left I was told that on Wednesday I needed to do everything on my own.

Wednesday comes, I took my dad to get an endoscopy. The whole time I waited I played Pokemon X. What a fun game~! After that I went to the restaurant and shadowed the owner's wife and helped out a little bit, still in training. None of the chefs and including the dishwasher, only the owners and the waitresses spoke english. @__@ But the dishwasher was really sweet and showed me how to do a couple of things. Probably by the end of the shift I had about 1/3 of the information I needed to know down.

TODAY, however, was completely different. I went to class and after class I went to work. I was on my own a little bit more but I was still really freaked out about taking orders. Throughout the day, I kept asking questions and the wife was kind of avoiding answering me a little bit... I should have seen it coming. As my shift ended, I was called into the back and they told me they were letting me go. Their reasoning was that because I hadn't ever waitressed before, they were willing to take a chance. But I wasn't a fast enough learner for them. They asked for my shirt and apron back because they had found someone else to fill the position with more waitressing experience.

I'm okay with that. BUT my problem with the whole situation was why hire me, with no waitressing experience, only train me for 4 hours (without teaching me everything) and then expect me to be a fully competent waitress...? It makes no sense. I understand why they did it but honestly, I don't feel like I was given enough of a chance.

If anything, I walk away from this job experience knowing I'm not fit for waitressing and I just have to shrug it off because not everyone is made for every job.

I will probably hold the reward for the QUICKEST JOB FIRE EVER! in my family... probably forever!

So, more often than not, I laugh at myself.

I don't find that I'm very good at anything in particular, but I like to have fun with whatever it is I do.

I had a very proud moment today while doing my homework and in the end, I laughed at myself because deep down I'm just a nerd who's good with computers.

For my class, we have to look through microscopes and draw what it is we are looking at. Usually during these labs, I take a picture of the slide and save the drawing for a later date, cause I'm kind of embarrassed about my drawings (I'm not very good). During this particular lab we had to do, the slide is too big for the circle we've been given to draw the object in. I took multiple pictures and emailed them to myself and put them together in photoshop with the little photoshop skills that I have, although this one didn't really require much skill, lol.

And this was what it came out to be:

Untitled (That's your spinal cord if anyone wants to know)

I really don't feel like drawing it now, after going through all that trouble.

I'll take my 'A' for the lab now!! (^-^)

So, I decided to update my livejournal today and realized that I never said ANYTHING about my Japan trip that happened approximately 3 months ago.
WARNING: This will be long (I'll shorten it just a little bit to highlights) and will contain some pictures.

Starting off on a solemn note, I didn't get to finish my trip. Of the 19 days we were supposed to stay in the country, we really only completed 8 and spent 2 days traveling, for a total of 10 days abroad. But as the Japanese say, しょうがない (It can't be helped).
