I had a sudden epiphany. Why do I have 2 of the same journal? That's kind of retarded. Actually, really retarded. So, in a split decision I'm going to semi-friends-only this journal because then I write about whatever I want and not worry about people I'm writing about reading it and then emailing me about it later. Not that it's anything bad, just overblown paranoia.
Things have been good lately. Actually good. Claire Wright would be all over that with her Red Pen of Doom "Cliche!"
but it's a solid description of things. I think I am finally
getting over whatever illness has plagued me for the last month and my vagina has stopped raging too. At least today. My lesson with Keigo yesterday was fantastic. We discovered Dr Seuss books in his closet. Jackpot! We read Hop on Pop
which I had never read before, he just ate it up! He couldn't read fast enough. It's a really fun book, with lots of rhymes and simple words. After that, I read him Green Eggs and Ham
which is my next favourite book to The Lorax
which he doesn't have. But he liked that one even more! His homework for the week is to practice Green Eggs and Ham
and read it to me next week. He wouldn't put the book down after I was done, he carried it with him all the way to front door to see me off. What a cutie. I'll have to bring my camera one day and take a picture with him. Although I'm surprised that mom or grandma haven't snapped any because Japanese people are known to be shutterbugs and take pictures of anything.
I borrowed a couple books from Keigo to copy at work so I can read them when I go to elementary school. It's not as good as having the real thing on hand, but oh well. And then I spent all day colouring Hop on Pop
with these really foul permanent markers that gave me a headache by the end. And holy fuck, Suess wrote a lot. I never realized how long his stories are: sometimes going on 50 pages.
Andrew didn't make Todai. I've been trying to call him all afternoon but he's gone AWOL (a la Manuel, it seems). Likely is he's gone to karaoke and his phone is dead. That's normally the case. He said he's working on an awesome birthday present for me. I can't wait!
I've also been stalking some icon makers on LJ and am getting the itch to get back into graphics/webdesign again. I actually found a domain that will host but I don't have anything worth making a site about. My old one became a blog but now I have two of those, I don't need a third.
I actually got some comments on the work in progress I posted in the arashirabu
community. Excitement! The other one didn't get any responses which makes me think it sucked, but I then realized how much I actually comment for the amount of stuff I read. Must change that bad habit because comments are unadulterated love. There are only two at the moment, but at least I know someone is reading. I will write for those two people!
