I spent the whole day in bed.
Literally, not metaphorically. I brought my laptop down off my desk and sat in bed all day reading Ryo/Shige fics from tabai
and hashing out this fic for je_ficgames
. It's coming along swimmingly now. I have enough problems with references when there are two boys involved, what the fuck am I going to do when there are three? I think it might be a bit OOC (from how I've written them in this sitauation, at least) to have them all penetrating each other so I might be remixing what I wrote for Eq 8 or something like that. Not so flowery and romantic but just fun experimental member ai. In more than one way. Tee hee! Thanks be to shourai
who is helping me out with the wonderful feedback. I can't wait to show you the finished product, missy!
I made an interesting salmon stew/soup thing for lunch today. I took pictures and I'll post the recipe on oishii_tabemono
at some point. I think it was a success though I wasn't really sure what I was making. I got lazy and just had conbini sandwiches for dinner.
I got an email from work -- I'm to show up for Sports Day tomorrow at the usual time. I didn't end up going in today but I emailed Noguchi-sensei earlier in the week asking her what I should do and she just replied with "Work starts on Tuesday, yoroshiku ne~" so I guess that means nothing special for me. :/ I'll bring my camera and be nosy and take pictures. It ends around 3pm so then I'll go home. Andrew and Benben are having a curry party tomorrow night but I didn't commit to going; we'll see what I end up doing tomorrow. Nova peeps are going to the Hub tomorrow night and I kind of want to go with them.
I went to dinner with Nikki and Amanda last night and it was so great to see them. Amanda's going back to England at the beginning of December and Nikki's leaving in January. :( Justin said he's planning to go back in the spring too. Everyone is leaving! I'm actually getting a bit... restless here too. For Amanda and me, it's the same: we want/need to get back and do more schooling so we can get on with our careers. For Nikki, she likes her job but she isn't a qualified teacher or childcare provider and doesn't get paid enough to deal with a room full of two year-olds.
I just got a call from Andrew. He didn't pass his entrance test for Todai again. :( He feels really shitty cuz he spent the last month studying his ass off and made it through to the interview and felt he did a great job and still didn't pass. They say they accept 30 people a year but might make exceptions for 1 or 2 but this year they only took 27. Does that sound fishy to you? For those looking to study in Japan, I suggest you do it through exchange at your own university/college rather than try and get in the same way Japanese people do because it's a lot of hoop jumping, ass kissing and bullshit and then you still might not get in even if you do everything right. 日本へようこそ。
After watching this Shirly Phelps-Roper freakshow on YouTube and now more Japanese retard bureaucracy, I feel angry.
