On the topic of LJ, they're trying to salvage things by giving vague promises again. Not exactly very promising, but what can I do. The future (broken down here) looks bleak.

Rereading Lord of the Rings lately, and I dreamed about owning the one ring last night. I went all MINE, ALL MINE and was panicking and running around obsessing over hiding the ring. There was also a Gollum-like creature running after me, so basically I was Gollum 2 hiding from Gollum 1.5. I think my subconscious is telling me that I wouldn't last one second under the ring's power.

I can never give conscious book reports, mostly because I'm usually not thinking about anything at all. But here's a stream of thoughts just because I can. )

As for J-pop, lots of things happened, but I don't care enough to write about any of it now. I still care, about certain groups and people especially, but I haven't been feeling like ranting about anything. That's strange for me, at least.

Lacking enthusiasm for everything lately. Thinking about graduation hurts my brain. I really have no solid plan, beyond depending on other people. Most days I think the only reason I haven't strayed from this career is because I can't think of anything else I might want to do. I bring nothing to this world and probably shouldn't be here at all, but I'm stubborn enough to stay here and take up all your resources and not feel guilty about it.

Bleh, I didn't mean to end on such a depressing tone. I'm not usually that melodramatic, I swear!

I finally slept in a bed last night! My sleeping schedule was completely insane for two nights. I've been getting seven hours of sleep a day, all from sleeping at my desk. My routine was to get two hours of work down, nap for an hour on my desk, then wake up for another two hours before napping on my desk again. This continued for two days. At one point I don't think I even knew if I'm awake anymore. I didn't know it was possible to miss sleeping in a bed so much until now.

But! I am now refreshed! And more importantly, I survived!

What's a spam post without more inane rants. )

Off to more sleep. I'm a poor excuse for a human being right now :D :D

I've been trying to partition my hard-disk ALL DAY. It didn't go well. I have no idea if it's because Vista is stupid or if it's because there are limitations for partitions (most likely theory but URGH STUPIDITY), but I've tried everything and that didn't work, so then I went and format everything and THAT FINALLY WORKED but it was a pain in the ass to move all that data somewhere else.

And then GUESS WHAT WINDOWS DIED. Probably because partitioning my hard-disk misplaced the booting areas or something, but yeah, my laptop died.

So then I phoned my dad and went DAAAAAAAAD, HEEEEEELP because I'm secretly forever three and I need my daddy ;___; Dad helped me google how to reinstall my laptop without needing a booting CD, so my entire C: disk is erased but at least I finally have Vista alive again and my hard-disk is still partitioned. I might have no idea how to do the easiest things (like install a Chinese keyboard layout) in Linux, but I totally understand why people say it's much easier to work with now :\

Oh yeah, and all that workload got my laptop all overheated. The best method I could come up with was to put it on top of a cardboard box and wipe it with ice cold water every few minutes. Messy but hey, it worked.

PLUS, this morning, something went wrong with my Internet access. I reported it this afternoon, and now I'm finally online again D:

I made some new LJ friends this week (hi! ♥) and I'm already spamming people with all my ranting. I'M NOT ALWAYS LIKE THIS, I PROMISE. Just, er, most of the time.

Urgh, I'm so sleepy right now. All I really want to do is drop dead onto my bed and wake up twenty hours later (so, not dead dead), but I'm typing this because some people find other people's misery funny and I figured I might have a one in a million chance of making someone laugh so why not.

Whining aside, what is this symbol, anyway? → ☊ It kind of looks like earphones but also doesn't.

Heading towards the airport in four hours. Possibly my last trip to Japan for a long while, until...I don't know, until I have a better reason to go there, I suppose. I have a lot I want to talk about, but I can't seem to get out the words. Maybe when I get back.

Good luck to me, I guess. I do hope to have fun, at the very least.

I'm offering fic for $1 (or less?) here and here. And graphics, eeeh, though I should probably be offering not to make them instead. Personally I find it easier to donate through local means, but if anyone has a spare dollar...I'm here?

It's not just a short-term disaster right now, is it? Earthquakes are still occurring at high frequency. And the nuclear outburst might mean long-term radiation pollution. The government here are highly discouraging people (one step away from forbidding, really) from visiting Tokyo, and I think the radiation level there is already three times more than usual? I'm no expert on this, but it doesn't take much to know that's bad news. I had plans of visiting Tokyo this year, but I might have to pick somewhere more stable now. I don't normally pray (not sure who/what to pray to...), but for what it's worth, please let things settle down soon.

Unrelated, but I ship White/N now, I think. As expected from me.

...So, J-web has a message from every group. Me and my friends jokingly calls them assigned homework for each group, but it doesn't make their messages any less heartbreaking. I don't know what it is about KinKi's message that touches me deeper than any other, though. Maybe it's because there's only two of them. Maybe it's the words. Maybe it's because I kept listening to KinKi Kids/Tsuyoshi's songs because they've been fitting my mood. Maybe it's because it's them.

What happened to today's Endless SHOCK, translated from a Chinese source.

At one o'clock, everyone's already sitting in the theater, but the show hasn't started. Ten minutes later, Koichi came out and explained that the lifters hanging from the ceiling were damaged during the earthquake. Although the staff spent all night repairing and everyone's on standby, Koichi continues to wonder what he should do. Despite saying 'show must go on', even in the show there's the message 'stopping to think is also necessary'. He remembers the Hanshin Earthquake, how he was feeling what the people near the disaster areas much be feeling now, and with everyone he decided that they should cancel today's shows. He wishes to start the show when everything's less unstable.

After that all the performers came on staff and said some more things and bowed. The audience left row by row, and Koichi stood in the hall and shook everyone's hands with both his hands. The theater also announced that Koichi would be making the same announcement for the night show.

...DIRECTOR-SAMA. ;______________________;

I can't imagine how difficult this decision must have been for Koichi. He's always been the type to go on no matter what, but...instead of show, LIFE MUST GO ON, you idiot. ;__;

It's impossible to live in Taiwan and not be reminded of 921. It's difficult to carry on with life when you once again realize that the Earth could take away everything in a few seconds, but, at least for Tokyo, life starts once more tomorrow. I keep thinking I'm unaffected, but I've also been thinking about this nonstop for the last two days. Monday, please be a better day.

Tsunami warnings for the western Pacific coast.

Taiwan seems to be alright for now, at least. It's scary to realize that 8.8 is about 180 times stronger than the Hanshin quake (7.3), though it seems to be in a more rural area and it's in afternoon (hello midnight earthquakes of Taiwan...), so the main damage isn't coming from the quake. What's really scary is the tsunami that's effecting everywhere right now o__O

What really impresses me is the general attitude the Japanese has towards this catastrophe. Normally I don't actually like the Japanese much (lol surprise), but how their media can remain calm and respectful and everyone's cooperating is just so very impressive, especially compared to Taiwan. (Urgh, the Taiwanese media is AWFUL. Every news station here reports things like they're writing horror stories/movies instead of professionally.) How they're calmly trying to spread the news around news, retweeting information including contact info for Taiwanese without phones and trying to encourage people to speak to foreigners...THAT'S the way to react, Taiwanese government/people.

On a side note (compared to the entire Japan, that is), a small luck is that the quake hit during intermission for SHOCK, which made getting out of the theater easier. This totally reminds me of J-friends, but I'm guessing if Johnnys decides to do something it would be with the younger groups. Still, all this is unimportant for now. Just.

EVERYONE. BE AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE AND GOOD LUCK. ;_____;

edit: according to someone, everyone in Tokyo received a text message saying 'an earthquake will arrive in Tokyo 15 seconds later, please immediately take refuge' before the second/?? wave. once again, impressed by their reaction speed and attitude. o_O

So, yesterday was the last night I slept in this room I'm in right now. Moved my mattress today, so I'd be going over to sleep tonight.

The ten to twenty minute drive distance is barely a distance to some people, even in a city as this one. But I've lived here for nineteen years -- this is home. That place is what will be home, later, but not now. Not for quite a while yet.

I never claimed to be good with words so I'd use a phrase I've heard before.

I'd be staring at an unfamiliar ceiling tonight.
