where did you go?

I mean, seriously. I get laid off and then I spend 3 days on the living room recliner, staying up all night and sleeping all day. Wtf self. Mope much? XD

Mom told me to sleep in my own bed tonight. So here I am, 3:42 in the morning, sitting on my own bed, posting on LJ. /lame

Tomorrow (you mean today, dummy) I'll be off to pick up my last paycheck and some groceries. Then I get to start the whole process of endless job applications again. Woo.

Also, I really need to post a rec soon...

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I have nothing else to say.

Oh wait, I picked up my room.

> We're just going to pretend I didn't post anything here for almost two months, mmkay? Shoo, shoo, read along. *shoos you down*

> As I posted in my first journal, I was laid off my job on Christmas Eve, meaning I'm now on the hunt for another job. I keep telling my mother that, as the holiday rush just ended, people will be LET GO from their jobs (as extra manpower is no longer needed) rather than HIRED for them. But she never listens to me anyways. Will probably wind up working fast food. 22 and managed to avoid it so far - is that a good thing or bad thing?

> Am obsessed with a new site: Squiby. You can adopt little eggs that will eventually hatch. You click them once a day to level them up. Forgive me, I've only just recently discovered things like this. I mean, I knew the Pokemon ones existed, vaguely, but this site has like every game and anime character you could possibly think of (minus a few obscure ones). So yes. Have adopted 100+ now. *___*

> Also mentioned at my other journal that my computer crashed again in the last few weeks, causing me to lose my entire manga collection. (50+ GB, can you believe it?) Not that I can blame my poor laptop; it's almost 5 years old. I mean, I've used it so much there are permanent marks where my hands rest as I type on the keyboard. Sad, isn't it? Nevertheless, took someone's advice and used what was left of my last paycheck to purchase a cheap external hard drive. Hopefully this one will last longer than the previous one. ;A;

> Next, would like to say a very belated Happy Birthday to m_haruno , miszxbrii, hhyolee_moo , zephkun , superakachan , and ayabu_11 !!! My apologies for missing the posts I wanted to make to you guys on your birthdays. I also wanted to extend my sincerest thank yous to those of you who wished me happy birthday here and I never responded. >_> Such a bad blogger, I am. I hope everyone had a wonderful birthday and ate lots of cake! :DDD

> FINALLY, Happy Belated Holidays!! Hope everyone's successfully celebrated their holidays and had lots of good times with friends and families. <333

Fail fail faility fail. That is this LJ. ;D

Good news: I HAVE OBTAINED A JOB. AT KROGER. BAGGING GROCERIES. Pssssshyeah, I'm awesome.

Bad news: This will most likely cut back on my internet timez. :/ I will do my best, however, in maintaining my LJ and working with my scanlation group, lol. I love you all to give you up now~

Also. NaNoWriMo. I will be participating. Even though it's day two and I still have a world count of ZERO.

Last but not least, do this:

How will you be defined in the dictionary?

itamaesan [noun]
A beat poet working the streets.

I like it. It's suiting.
Either that, or I'm secretly a hooker.
Totally snagged from mientira . <3

I really, really don't.

Stop thinking about it, self. Stop right now.

> Ahhh, my bad, my bad, I've neglected posting here. XD Been a suprisingly busy week for me, considering I really have no life. ;D

> First up: I have a job interview on Monday! Yeah! *high-fives self* It seems every time I get a call asking for an interview I'm sitting in line at the high school, waiting to pick up my siblings. Strange, how fate works that way. Coincidentally, I was also in a really good mood that day and- voila! Even better after futur job prospects were plopped in my lap. <3

> Last night I spent the night at a friend's house; just me and 3 guys, glued to the widescreen tv as we watch various amounts of anime, play Guitar Hero, share hilarious/informative/stupid Youtube videos, and smoke a hookah. This counts the second time I've done this - drove an hour away from home to stay up all night and invariable laugh my ass off. Quite relaxing, I assure you.

> Today I was dragged around town by my sister, who's graduating high school this year along with her twin brother, in what I feel to be a fruitless endeavor of casual picture taking times. We started at the train depot museum (old fashioned trains are so out of date here, we have a museum for it. really.) and worked our way to the local college campus, which was a riot of colorful leaves and flowers in the bloom of fall. Mostly I was bored, though. I don't pose very well for photos - can't seem to look natural, it's always stiff and forced - so it was a tedious experience for me. But it made my sister happy and my mother stopped harping at me, so I suppose something good came from it.

> Muda's been kind of lagging this past week...Jam has officially left and everyone seems slightly depressed. Mostly we write various comments back and forth across the Spam board, but I think scanlation might be picking up soon? I dunno. *sigh*

> I have been contemplating various characters for future cosplays lately, even though I'm dead broke. I think I've tentatively settled on Shippuden Haruno Sakura, Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop, Yoko Rittener from Gurren Lagann, TimeSkip!Nami from One Piece, and Kagamine Rin from Vocaloid. That is, of course, by no means a comprehensive list, and I'm sure I'll be adding to it very soon, but that's a list of OneDay!Cosplays. XD

For the record, cosplays I've already done: Child!Nell from Bleach, a variation of the Broken Youth ending of Naruto Shippuden anime for Haruno Sakura, and 3rd Uniform Allen Walker from D.Gray-man. Maybe one day I'll post pictures? ;3

> P.S. You can blame adela_nightmoon for the entry title. It's due to the Halloween meme I gangked from her. XD

Pimped shamelessly from adela_nightmoon  <3
1) Create a graphic (200 x 200 max size) to represent your personal "candy". It should have your username on it, but otherwise can feature whatever you want. Make it something special since it's self-representative.

2) Make a post with the subject "trick or treat?". Put your "candy" somewhere in it, and be sure to repost these instructions.

3) Then, go around other people's LJs and reply to them with either "trick" or "treat". If you reply with "trick", they will give you an LJ dare that you have to perform before taking their candy. If you're too wimpy for that, simply say "treat" and take their candy.

4) List all your collected candies in your original "trick or treat?" post to show off your collection, being sure not to direct-link!

> Have spent the last 3 hours putting in job applications online. @____@ Someone please shoot me and put me out of my misery. I'm so tired of looking at my pitiful work experience list, lol. Now must wait for someone to call me back and be all "O HAY THAR SAW UR APP, INTERVIEW?" so I can be all "O PLZ PLZ THX I LUV U".

> itamaesan  is officially friends only! :O Such a pain in the butt to go back and change all those previous entries. /shot
New rec in just a bit. :)

> Tomorrow is Jam's last day at Muda. I am a very, very sad panda. I keep talking about it, but I think I might cry when I have to say goodbye. >_>

> One of my best friends turned 21 on Saturday. We celebrated by first going to the liquor store and buying over $40 of alcohol then going to a restaurant where she got, in this order: a gin & tonic, a Cosmopolitan, and a Chocolate Cake shot, all of which she knocked back like champ. Finally, we wound up at her house where we ate cake and I proceeded to do 6 shots in less than an hour. Thankfully I woke up on her couch (at 8 a.m. wtf) mostly clothed and only slightly hungover. I still slept all day yesterday, though, lol.

> Making definite plans to go to Ohayocon in January! :Db Very excited, as I've never been. MTAC's pre-reg is open, as are hotel rooms, but I need a job first. *sigh* Dunno what I'm going to do about Dragon*Con or AWA yet.

> I miss my grandparents. They're in Michigan currently. Come home soon, dammit.

> I'm not typically one for whining and moaning about my life - oh woe is me, my life sucks, emo emo emo, blah blah blah. Definitely not me. So you won't find much of that around here, haha. I think what you'll see the most of is me asking fate why it's so sincerely impossible for me to acquire and keep a job, without being hired for seasonal work and let go after or month or having an asshole of a boss literally breathing over your shoulder and making snide comments about your job performance to the point where you break down in tears and say fuck it. (run on sentence FTW)

> Finally released Blazer Drive chapter 24 over at Muda. It was a long and tedious process - 4 double pages to be merged, 45 pages to typeset (by yours truly - ALONE), new credits page to create, and a notes page for good measure. Nnnnnngh. I honestly thought I was going to shoot myself there for a bit. XD Also, debates are up over whether to add another new series to our lineup. Requests from a member were 07-Ghost and Fate/Stay Night. I have read neither but both look interesting enough to be worked on, so I'm game.

> MUDA IS NOW DOING SHOUJO LOL. No really, I teamed up with the amazing Burning Willow and we're going to rescanlate some of the...not so good volumes of Skip Beat! Very much looking forward to it. Now only if we could find a good source of trans...Looking for either Spanish, English, or French, haha. Wish us luck!

> Changed my mind again about my layout. Decided I liked the current one more. Hmph. Can't seem to find a layout I'm  just in love with to the point of keeping it for more than a week, lol.

> New rec coming up on itamaesan ! I'm excited, cause I absolute adored the series I'm posting next. Also, two more days until journal becomes f-locked. *sigh* That's a tedious process I'm not looking forward to. I'd also really like to post my update post, but I'm still waiting on quite a few series: Beelzebub, Detective Conan, Code:Breaker, Fairy Tail, Defense Devil, Negima, Gantz, Bakuman, Psyren. Of course, not all of these will have updates this week; I'm just waiting to find out. :3

> Currently reading Noblesse, Akumetsu, Blazer Drive, and Aflame Inferno. Ok, really, just Akumetsu. I'm stalled on the others at the moment. XD

> So I've somehow become a voracious blogger in the past week or so - I'm not sure how it happened. I guess I can blame itamaesan and recent happenings there...or maybe I've just been bored out of my mind? This is understandable, as I have no job, no school to attend, and no con to prepare for. @__@ Someone put me out of my misery, plz.

> Over the past two days since I posted I'll be f-locking my journal I've had floods of friending requests and comments, haha. I've brought out all the lurkers and leechers. It wasn't my intention to, but that's what happened. Oh well. I suppose everyone's happy that I'm not a bitch who locked her journal without telling everyone? But really, that would be such a mean thing to do...:/

> I know that I've said so before on my other account, but I really DO have a list of manga to read/upload. I add to it every time I stumble across a series that looks halfway interesting or someone tells me to check out a series; I'm weird, I know. Anyways, if anyone's interested, here's my current list:

Manga ListCollapse )

Some of those I have read already, they're just waiting for me to hunt them all down and upload them, lol.
Another creeper thing to know about me: I keep a list of update links in a .doc file. So my update post that I post once a week? Yeah, there's a lovely little list of HTML tucked away in a file that I just change chapter numbers/volume numbers in and then I post it. >_> Can we say obsessed? Yes, yes we can.
ALSO. To make it worse. I have an update queue. Yeah, you read that right. There are currently four updates sitting in my queue, waiting to be posted, already filled out in my format and links. Aggggh, I have no liiiiiife.

> Typeset Blazer Drive Chapter 24 at Muda today; it was freaking 45 pages long and had FOUR double page spreads, which of course have to be merged and redrawn and all that jazz. God, kill me now.
In other news, Muda is losing one of its co-founders in about a week. I'm very, very sad about this. He's been a great source of support and information for me over the last two months since I've joined. I really hope we can keep the group together after he's gone; he's such a pillar of support in our little community and has big shoes to fill. ): But real life calls and when you're offered an opportunity, you have to take it.

Jamjamstyle, I wish you all the best of luck in the world and I hope you succeed in everything you do. You will be missed and we will always await your return, if and when you decide to. Until then... much love, dude. Much love. <3

> Unfortunately, I've made the decision to f-lock my manga journal, itamaesan . It was a hard decision to make - I spent quite a few days thinking about the pros and cons. I've never wanted to be one of those journals where you're forced to friend it just to see other entries. I know that some people don't care to do this and when I started sharing manga I left it public for that and other reasons. But now, in the light of the manga coalition and the cease & desist orders, I've decided to man up and suck it up - f-locked in one week, which will be October 17th. I am a very sad panda. ):

> Hello new LJ friends!!! /creeper

> A belated Happy Birthday to the awesome Uzumaki Naruto of Naruto legend. It's 12:30 am, October 11th here, and his birthday is the 10th, so yes, belated, hahaha.

> I'm very excited over at Muda Scans because I was just given the go ahead to start typsetting chapter 24 of Blazer Drive! :DDD Which means it should be out tomorrow, or maybe even in the next few hours, if I'm not distracted by things like LJ and Youtube. >_>

> Guys. Guuuuuuuuys. This is the new single by My Chemical Romance, which is my favorite band of all time, ever. I've seen them live only once, but they're one of those bands that may not sound amazing but have so much energy and stage presence you just get sucked into watching them and the next thing you know you've been standing in the most pit for THREE HOURS and your feet are killing you.
