30-day meme
I think I am going to do several to catch up to everyone else :p

day 01 → your favourite song
Favorite song, it is sometimes way too difficult to pick just one. It always depends on my current mood. But for songs that I come back to again and again there is 'Cling and Clatter' (or all of the No Name Face album) by Lifehouse and almost all of Garth Brook's ballad songs, especially 'Ireland'. I do terribly love 'Kissしたまま、さよなら' by DBSK that hit me so hard I cried the first time I heard it.

day 02 → your favourite movie
The movie I have watched over and over and have memorized almost every line is the Keira Knightly 'Pride and Prejudice'. I love the casting of Matthew Macfadyen as Mr. Darcy and the soundtrack is wonderful.

day 03 → your favourite television program
I am such a sucker for 'Ghost Hunters' and 'Ghost Hunters International', I also greatly enjoy 'Destination Truth'. The new History channel show 'Chasing Mummies' is quite interesting and informative. I have only managed to catch a couple episodes so far, but I find Dr. Zahi Hawass to be entirely too egotistical to fully enjoy what I have seen.

Now that I am officially done with KaT-TUN concerts for this summer I will finally make my post.

First I would like to thank the people who were kind enough to share their tickets with me!! You guys are awesome and amazing!!

So first show was 7/16 it took me a little while to get into the show and overall I felt that KT-TUN was a little off without Jin on the stage. Kame also seemed to forget some of the lines of the songs. Overall it was a good show. I freaked out when they came out on horse back.

7/17 was a smoother show. I noticed that KIS-MY-FT 2 was really good at acknowledging the fans in the crowd. I also discovered that I like their songs and them. Now I must go find more of their music. Massu was the guest and revealed that he is the only member of NEWS that isn't busy right now. Tegoshi is apparently too busy playing soccer, he better watch out though because Kame and Massu harmonize beautifully. I want to call for a KAMEMASU tour next year :p I had to leave early that night because I had to get to Machida for all night karaoke, so I missed the end of the show.

7/24 I never expected to go to this show, but I could not resist when there was an offer for free tickets posted online. They ticket holder kept insisting that they were bad seats and that she bought herself better seats off of an auction site. Kristi went with me tonight. Since we figured we were going to be far, far away from the stage neither of us did much to get ready for the show.

So the lady handed us the tickets and disappeared really fast, I was expecting her to want to talk, but no. It wasn't until she walked away that I looked at the seat placement and saw アリーナ (arena). We all kinda freaked out! Arena seats, FOR FREE!!! These tickets resell in the thousands of dollars. I kept expecting security to stop us as we advanced closer and closer to the ground. I am pretty sure that if the name on the tickets hadn't been foreign they would have. We had to pass 2 security check points to get to our seats and have staff pour our drinks into paper cups. Our seats ended up being in the section just after the center stage, a little towards that back (super close to the back stage). We were on the end towards the center, right next to the path way that the moving stage came down, also where they liked to run.

KIS-MY-FT2 were the first to notice us. One of the members came by on a cart and when he saw me his entire face lit up in a huge smile and he peace sign waved. I officially love him now. I just wish I knew who they were so that I would know which one was so happy to see us there.

It was not long after that that Koki noticed us and started giving us a lot of fan service. He ran by and touched our hands. He smiled a lot. We got some waves. When he went up in the crane right over us he gave us a good amount of attention. During the final encore he caught my eye across the entire section of girls and pointed at me with a big smile on his face. I pointed back and then had to stop myself from fainting. Also his solo was much better since they cut the girl out of it. Instead he did a naughty dance on the bed with a member of KS MY FT 2. At the end after the sheet came down Koki was still on the bed cuddling up with Junnosuke. Junno's solo started, but there weren't any changes from the previous shows.

Kame gave us some attention when the moving stage went past. I got a big smile and wave from him. His solo just gets hotter and hotter with each viewing. I can't wait for the con dvd to come out so I can watch it whenever I want to.

During KIS-MY-FT2's song, Fire Beat, one of the members, Hiro, fell off stage. All of KAT-TUN gathered around and stopped performing, but KS MY just glanced over and kept on going. Hiro came out at the end of the song and said he was okay. KAT-TUN kept making sure of it. He was out the rest of the concert when KIS-MY-FT2 came out and seemed okay, but it was a tense few minutes.

That is about all that I can think of right now, but I might edit later if I think of anything. It is 1:30 in the morning now and I kinda want to go to sleep soon and stop thinking.

My dad just told me that they may be taking my brother on a cruise or a trip to Hawaii this summer while I am in Japan. I know I will be having an amazing summer of freedom and individual growth, but a part of me still hurts. In a way it feels like I am being cut out of the family. We have not done a family vacation for several years and now that my parents are planning one, it seems like I am not invited. My dad cited that he will be giving me money towards my trip, however I am not asking for that money. My plans are to survive this summer on my own money. So while I am surviving on dollar store ramen, my family will be eating at expensive restaurants. I, in no way, want this to sound like I am ungrateful for the opportunities granted to me or that I don't want to go to Japan (because I am TOTALLY stoked). It just hurts inside of my heart that they are doing this trip without me. It also feels like my brother is being rewarded for not having a job and not graduating from college.
Now I really have to go finish getting ready for work.

So IACE is running this incredible special on airfare and that means I can get to Japan for suuuuuuper cheap \(^o^)/ Like $299 plus tax and fuel cheap! Unbelievable right? I just have to purchase the tickets this Saturday and leave by 5/15. Only thing is that I have absolutely no leave time saved up at work and I haven't spoken to my manager about taking the time off. The last thing I want to do is have to quit my job for a vacation. I would be hired back, but possibly at much lower pay.

But other then the job thing everything works out. My uni classes are finished by 5/11. I have the money for the plane ticket right now. I have several possibilities for roommates (and a friend working for the apartment company! Love you Jen <3 )

Not to mention TEGOMASU 2nd Live going on!!! I need to go again! The first one was sooooooooo cute XD

So my plan right now is to talk to my manager tomorrow, buy the ticket either on Thursday or Saturday, then fly to Japan on 5/15 and stay until the end of June. I really like this plan! Plus with the money saved on airfare I will definitely be able to afford a Rail Pass and actually get to Osaka, Kyoto, and so many other places!

I feel like my summer plans were just put into place :) Will be completely devastated if I cant get the time off from work T_T

Ok so today went fairly well. I woke up, went downstairs to visit with my relatives before they left, then took the medicine for my shoulder, and kinda fell back to sleep. I didn't mean to sleep until 2:30, but the muscle relaxer makes me pass out if I don't fight it enough. After getting up again I grabbed lunch, skipped my afternoon pills because I had to drive all the way to Henderson, big mistake! By the end of Korean I could feel my muscles bunching back up and dull pain. By the time I got home all I wanted was to ice my shoulder, watch a little TV, and then go to bed.

I grabbed the ice and a cookie, a single cookie. Then I sat down to watch Heros with my dad. We were kindly waiting for my mom to come down to start the show and I begin munching away on the cookie, taking small nibbles to make it last longer. As soon as my mom came around the corner and sees me she yells, "WHY ARE YOU EATING THAT!? DO YOU WANT TO GET FAT!" Come on, it is one little cookie! Its not like I was cuddling up with a pint of Ben and Jerrys. I responded to her that it was just one cookie and that I didn't appreciate being attacked about it. She yells back that I have to have gained 10 pounds since getting back from Japan, which I haven't, only 1.5 pounds. She went off about a bunch of medical stuff, mostly things that have nothing to do with me.

I tried to go upstairs to avoid further fighting, but then both of my parents started yelling at me about being a brat. They said I need to have an attitude adjustment. I was the one trying to avoid a fight, how is that needing an attitude adjustment? So amid them screaming threats I went up to my room. After 5 minutes I went back down to try and sooth things out, it didnt work. Within 30 seconds I was being screamed at again.

My mom brings up that on Saturday, when we were out with family, I ate a truffle, Mexican food for lunch, and a steak for dinner. I was stupid enough to shot back that I only had one enchilada for lunch with water to drink and that she had an enchilada, rice, beans and a soda and also had a truffle and a steak for dinner. And who was the one making the bad choices? She was not happy with me.

She wants to know why I cant be as healthy and actively losing weight like I did in Japan. I could only stare at her. The answer is so obvious. It is because I am not in Japan. I can't walk to the station to catch my train. It is a completely different lifestyle here, one that I dont like. It is easier to be healthy when you are happy, I am not happy in Las Vegas. I miss Tokyo. I miss wondering in Koenji. I miss dinner at Grazie Gardens. I miss the smell, the feel, the press of people. I miss finding other people who even know what TV show I am talking about. I miss walking down the street and seeing something new everyday. I miss the constant hum of activity. I miss rain and only seeing glimpses of the sky between the buildings. I miss being able to just be myself, knowing that I can get away with more because I don't have the confines of my social norms to stop me. I miss being happy.

Is it so wrong that I am scared to park my car at work. There has always been crime there but this week has been the icing on the cake. One car was broken into and the registration with their address and the clicker to get into their neighborhood was stolen. Soon after that a car was STOLEN from the parking lot. How crazy is that?! I am thinking that I will be leaving nothing in my car for the foreseeable future.
