I am exhausted. I'm saddle sore, tired, drained and staring at a pile of laundry from last week and this weekend and wondering if I can get away with waiting till tomorrow to do them. -sighs- I'll have to be sure I have the clothes needed for my two jobs to find out but I don't want to move from where I sit. I'm also exhausted because Lucky was absolutely filthy, more so than normal, when I picked up him. He had dry pee and poop on him because I didn't tell them to bath him. Normally he'll have a little pee on him because he can't pee in the right direction, he always gets his rear legs, and dust from laying on the cool concrete floor. So I yank him into the tube and give him a good hard scrub and he was pissy about it. Yoko wasn't happy with me either when I went an dragged her into the tube after Lucky, since I was bathing one and all the dog towels were clean I said why not do both.

I'll post details of my trip later or sometime this week when I have the energy. Right now I just want to collapse into bed but I need to see if I need to do laundry, feed/medicate the dogs, and dry my hair.

Okay, deleting blurs, no goods, and so on only I'm left with about.. 1,600 or so pictures... I haven't finished, just done a head figure. Of those I've been able to narrow it down to just under 450 for the CD I need to take to Japanese class. My teacher is adding to this a written final exam that is mainly vocab and a three page report on cultural differences. All of this due Thursday. The CD is done, just need to get a disk to burn to. My main worry is now writing the freaking report. I wish I had been informed last week, lord knows I didn't have anything to do during the weekend! Oi. Not to mention typing, finding someone to proof read, edit, and finish. Can I say pressure?
nova_myth: (sleep)
And the day goes by. Not really anything to do. Family all moopy, grandma died two years ago today and there have been a slew of funerals the past few months. Friends are either working or have plans with their family.

I'm finally getting over the fuzzy brain and drain of the jetlag, now its just getting my internal clock back on US time and not Japan's. I need to stay up at least another 5 hours before I can crash to bed to get a start on it, I've been a night owl if I've been awake at all the past few days. My poor dogs, all I've been doing is sleeping and been up only to feed, med, or let them outside for a short while. I need to write bills and send them out in the mail Monday, I've delayed it too long. I've at least gone through the mail and got them piled, I just have to get the checkbook out.

I'm running out of stuff to read, I'm reading fics form anywhere between the second to ninth time depending on which stories.I can't even write drabbles, idea come but in a fuzzy haze that has no base to write them in. I'm still so fuzzy on the details of stuff on TF2 I don't even get ideas from that new source...  I'm just dead in the water with no wind in my sail, drifting with nothing in sight.

The only slightly productive thing I've done is uploaded pictures to facebook and befriend half the people I want to befriend and tagged them in those photos. I'm still missing 5 people, I can't seem to read the emails they wrote in my travel book right or I'm still waiting for them to approve my friend request. I think once I've gone through all the pictures and deleted the last scraps I'll have about 1,500 pictures. I've only uploaded 43 to facebook and might put up a few more. I'll put about 200-300 or so in my online travel scrapbook over the coming month or so.

I had a little fun...

nova_myth: (sleep)
I am so tired, it feels like my brain is a fuzzy haze. All I can do is sleep. I'm missing two days of Japanese class as is. I think also adjusting to American food after eating Japanese two weeks straight put a toll on my stomach and digestion system. I didn't eat greasy fast food but it was still greasy compared to Japanese food.


I emailed my teacher, but I feel guilty. I sat next to her on the flight back from Chigaco and told her I'd make it. Oi.

I'm furious with my cousin, she didn't take the meds to Camp Bow Wow while I was gone, so lucky was without one of his pain meds and his heart meds for days before I arrived home. Argh. He's in enough pain its effecting his eating, which keeps me from giving him pain meds! He needs to eat first before he can have them!
nova_myth: (sleep)
I slept until 3pm yesterday, that's about 12 or 13 hours from when I got home and crashed. I've been up since then, OI. I'm going to have to stay away until near 8pm, not gonna be easy, nope. I've been trying to go through my backlog of emails and stuff, I don't want to deal with regular mail in these twilight hours. I feel sleepy now, but I have class in four hours and life to deal with after that.

I don't have enough time to write about my adventures in Japan yet, I'd need a few hours that I don't have. Japanese classes start up again for another two weeks tomorrow at 10:30am and I need to tend to real life matters before I can do my cyberlife.... On the good note I found Revoltech Magnus, Starscream, Rodimus Prime and Megatron. Optimus was completely sold out, I went to eight different stores and nothing. Even the online ebay sellers in the US were sold out when I got back, I've had to order from Hong Kong a few hours ago just to get him... -sighs-. Fifty dollars with shipping and insurance. He'll be here in two weeks.

Finally saw TF2 )

nova_myth: (Default)
In 24 hours I will be on a flight home. A very long trip back awaits me. I have a five hour lay over at Chicago before my flight home to San Antonio. Sadly I was unable to obtain Roveltech Optimus Prime. I found all the others but him, he is sold out. I have been to eight different stores in Tokyo between now and last night. I found out of another place but its closed and my depature is long before they open again tomorrow. Looks like I will have to do Ebay, hopefully I will not have to pay fifty dollars for him! 

I will post again after I see the movie in about two days.

Oh and I asked one of the guys on the tour out....

nova_myth: (Bluestreak)
Ⅰ’m currently in Tokyo, arrived by bullet train instead of flight a few hours ago.  I'm currently confused on how many days i have left. I am still leaving the contest open to who can guess how many emails I will have when I get back, minus junk mail I'll have to delete. Winning prize is sparkling ficlet of choice of characters!!

Hello from Nagasaki, the Christanity center of Japan! :p

I leave for Fukyuora (if I'm spelling that right) in half an hour. I'll enjoy an osen, traditional hotspring bath, tonight before we leave for Tokyo tomorrow by plane. I've taken over 1,000 pictures, and that's with deleting many of the ones I don't like at the end of each day. I'm on my 4GB memory card. I've also taken about 8 videos or so. Its been very fun. I think I've lost weight too! Just eating the local food and being on the go and nothing really westernized seems to be dropping weight for everyone. Won't know till I get to the scale back home if its true or just jeans loosening from all the walking!

Sadly I haven't seen any transformers toys or stuff, but I have no fear, I will find them in Akiharbara in Tokyo!

The main person who I have been worrying would ruin the trip is reaching that point. My poor teacher is close to tears. The girl first kept borrowing money from people from day on in Japan even though she had money but didn't exchange it, or withdrawal money from the international ATMs. Long story short she's not 'taking her meds' and threating to be suicidal, saying 'we're hurting her'. She's pulling middle school drama and its pissing me off. I've been involved with the gossip because it reached so many people she was asking money from, its not excusable. She's been to Japan before, so she knew the drill as much as me. She's finally, I think, paid people back. But she wouldn't give people space so people are out right avoiding her, including me because her imaturity is making my temper run hot and fast.

She's been shuffled around twice now, had rows with three people big time, and a minor one with me, that I know of.
nova_myth: (sleep)
In six hours I will be at the airport. Chance of sleep? Nil. I am mostly packed with just the last stuff that usually goes in the bag just before you leave left to go. I've cleared up the bathroom, now I just need to clean. Same thing goes for the den, my desk area, and the kitchen, so no rest for me at the moment. I'll be close to pulling 24 hours awake once I get through check in me thinks. I really, really doubt I'll be able to sleep on the plane. I'm taking benadryl to try though.

I am also thinking about taking one of my Optimus Primes with me. :3 I'll decide when everything is said and done and about to load up into my friend car. I'm thinking of taking pictures of him through out the trip. I know there is a childerns book that's like that but I can't remember it...

So this is farewell, I will be back in two weeks.
nova_myth: (Lost of Self Control!)
Those people at my doctor's office better not give me shit today. My period started yesterday evening and I'm already moody a day early and in pain. I have so much to do today, my Uncle will be staying for almost a week while I'm gone and with a guest, so I have even more cleaning and organizing to do. I am very, very, grumpy.
nova_myth: (Lost of Self Control!)
Seriously, I am getting really, really close to being pissed off.

I was annoyed when the school dropped extra paper work and expenses on me.

I was aggravated by the asshole vet tech I seem to get stuck with everything I call my vet and the idiots that work with my doctor. If the vet or the doctor weren't so go I wouldn't be going there any more. But the fact remains, my dog's meds are getting here late, I had to pay extra shipping on that already too. The fact remains that its been over 48 hours since I called my doctor's office and forced to leave a message with the nurse and explained what is going on and still have not received a call back.

The fact reminds that I am having trouble finding items I need for this two week run of a trip. I am not staying in one location, we are going to five cities. I need pain killers, midol, pepto, and such meds in case they are needed because we're hardly going to be at the hotel to begin with. Carrying 3 or 4 bottles ontop of prescription bottles in my purse isn't possible. I can't just the pills with me, they need to be in their offical packaging be it a packet or a bottle or they will get confiscated.

I do not have all day free, my morning is spent at the school and my afternoons running around and trying to get people to do their jobs apparently. I still need that letter and pick up another one from a different doctor. I still need to take Yoko and Lucky to the vet and get their kennel cough vaccine updated. I still need to finish preping that stupid letter for my uncle on my fall tuition. I still need to buy both Yoko and Lucky to weeks worth of food and start packing their stuff (meaning washing toys and beds). I still need to find items to save room in my suitcase in travel size amounts. I still need to get my pants from the tailor. I still need check out other travel insurances. I still need get a pest company to inspect the house and get a quote this week before my cousin and I call my uncle and inform him of the situation. I still need to pay my cell bill and car payment and if the water bill comes in this week that too.

All this week I have hardly been home between 8 or 9am to 9pm or later. I have purchased a lot of things I need, I have one letter from my dentist on a prep he had me on, I have the care outline for Lucky done and ready. I have not be able to study nor read any of the travel info other than customs on my trip. I am relying solely on my experience in traveling for long haul by my trip to Italy in 2003 and my trip to Japan in 2005.

So when I talk to a friend and he ask what's up. I tell him the truth. Said friend decides to say "You don't need that", I say bullshit. As far as I know, he's never been on a short haul flight, let a lone a 16 hour fly with a few hours layover in the middle of it. Let alone traveling somewhere that wasn't a family's place without his parents for more than a few days, let alone two weeks.

I'm crank. I need to rant. I'm bitchy because mainly the stupid people in my class who are arrogant and won't shut the hell up when I ask the teacher a question and interupt with "I'll tell you after class", I ask the teacher not them. I'm bitchy because of the stupid vet tech who has to give me attitude for some damn reason either in person or on the phone. I'm bitchy because of the stupid nurses at my doctor's office.

I had enough to do without these stupid termites, people, and my uncle on top of everything. I've already yell at my friend and while I feel sorry I feel justified too. He's a guy, he knows jack about having to carry a damn purse on your shoulder.
nova_myth: (ORLY?)
I woke up at 6:47 this morning, and wasn't tired. But I was too lazy to get my butt out of bed and somehow forced myself to sleep. Problem? I didn't get up till 10am. Can't have that, I need to be getting up 8am or earlier with the trip coming. Bad me.

I also washed my backpack I've had with me since freshmen year of high school. I remember having to fight my mom to get it for me before school started and its been with me on every class and trip I've gone on. That's NINE years. Lol. Its currently hanging to dry, I'm not willing to put it in the dryer because of its special padding in the straps.

I need to do ALL my laundry today. Clean out my car tomorrow and get the suitcases out of the garage and start packing. I also need to start shifting boxes and what not around if I'm going to have a chance to make room for my car to fit into the garage while I'm gone. And I need to clean the house. Next week is going to busy just paying the last of the concrete bills, dealing with the termite issue, typing up instructions for lucky's meds, writing a letter to mail to my uncle just before I leave on my tutition, and packing in general.


I'm sure there is a list of things I'm forgetting about at the moment too...

14 days...

Jun. 2nd, 2009 10:56 pm
nova_myth: (ORLY?)
Can you believe its just 14 days? I'm so trying NOT to freak out. My to do list tomorrow includes paying fixed bills a head of time and all bills that have come in so far. The sooner I get that out of my bank account the better I know just how much spending money I can take with me to Japan. 

I wonder how many emails I'll have in my mail box when I get back if I'm unable to check it while overseas for two weeks. I thought I'd make this a game, the person close to the number when I get back wins a sparkling ficlet of their choice of characters. :)

On a side note... I think Yoko's favorite toy is going to have to be trashed soon... its so sad since its a teddy bear.
nova_myth: (ORLY?)
I registured for the trip. Oi. let the stress mount. My boss wants ME to man the fort, she's out sick, today and I'm not sure what that entails exactly.... Oh boy. I'll give it my best, everyon brace!

Alright I'm finally getting around to typing up about my Memorial Day trip to the Education Conference and what not, blah blah.

The Education conference was actually targeted at teachers at the community college level. But I was able to attend a session on story telling as a tool in the class room. That session was very good. I'm going to copy and paste my report of the Conference below for the details on it. It was actually funny for the first half of the morning because I was wearing a business suit, sorta, and my jacket kept riding up. So everytime I sat down or stood up I did the Picard Maneuver where I kept having to pull it down. You know, Star Trek Next Generation? Anyways apparently there wasn't anyone even mildly a trekie in my group. Blah. The trip, and week, was put on a burner when I injured my toe/foot. We were late arriving and so I slipped off my fance shoes and started running. When I got into the room where session was I didn't slip on my shoes because it had already started and I wanted to be seated. I was too much of a hurry and when I scooted up my chair I apparently put one of the legs right over my foot and slammed by butt into the seat. I will say this, I squeak, I stayed in my seat, but that was it. I edured the pain for two hours before limping out the session. I shrugged off the pain and went to lunch. Mistake. When we got back from lunch and went to the last session for the day I took off my and actually giggled. My middle toe was a nasty red, a little bit swollen, and my foot around the toe was blue. So I limped it on over to the first aid place, the looked at it, then I limped it on to the hotel and put ice on it for half an hour before getting ready for dinner. Hell its free food! Plus there was a dance, and yes I put my dancing boots on, thank to god the conference had shuttle buses, and away my group went. One of the teachers who was incharge of our group just had to be telling my story at the table, yeah. She had seen my foot when I went to the first aid and was shocked to see me drag the only guy in the group to the dance floor for the hell of it. We both had no idea how to dance country, but what the hell right? I limped out, again, but I could care less. I felt amazingly good about the whole trip from beginning to end, even with the injury. The people were great and I think this week would have been great if it wasn't for the boom dropped when I got home. Blah.

Well I'm in Hillsboro. The drive up was a little bit difficult. My dog Yoko was a wreck the entire way. I had to keep her buckled up in the front seat because if she was loose she'd sit behind me and pant in my ear the whole way. If I tried to buckle her up in the back she would have chewed the seat belt attached to her harness. Lucky thankfully was content to just stay where he was and sleep. Usually he tries to turn around or something and gets tangled.

My friend's little sister grew so much, I just can't believe it. I've missed them so much; its not fair I have to leave tomorrow night. ;.; I feel a little awkward most of the time, and babble like Bluestreak just trying to make conversation. I'm really not good at playing catch up. -.- Other than that I fell back into the old routine okay. Knew where things were in the kitchen once I had a chance to pause and literally rewind my mind to how it was before I moved. Makes me homesick for this place, I miss how easy and stress free it is to be up here compared to down in San Antonio.

Trip delay

 Well my road trip has been delayed yet again. Now from a three day trip, two day trip, to now an over night trip. >...<  I'll be leaving in the super early hours tomorrow and making the drive then, hopefully I'll avoid the traffic of people that have to go to work and others heading toward their Easter weekend destination. I'll be coming back late Saturday night, lovely. ;.; Oi. Its a little over 24 hours with those who I consider my family so I'll take it. I most likely won't be able to see them again till Christmas break. Man I would SO love to actually know Optimus. I could crash in his cab the 5+ hour drive up, he'd be able to see family interaction and stretch his legs at night. I know my friends mom would instantly get over the whole alien robot thing if he accidentally stepped on a few rattlesnakes. Don't get me wrong, I'm opposed to their slaughter, but she would love it. She was bitten by one as a child and she has a 8 year running around so, eh.
