The things we desire most might not be the things we need most...

(I seriously don't know where that came from. ^_^;;)

Heh, hello again. I just thought I'd drop by before the weekend since I, to no one's surprise, won't be able to come by yet again. My Mom's birthday is on Sunday and we're heading out to Nevada, I think. It should be fun. ^_^ It's the last trip I'm taking before school starts again. So, I guess this is the time that I should enjoy the last summer days to the fullest. ^_^

Er, on to not-so-pointless stuff now. ^^ Thank you very much for the comments, everyone. I appreciate all of them. Thank you for being so considerate and understanding with me these past few weeks... well, more like the entire summer actually. I don't think this year qualifies as one the best summer vacations I've had. But what can you do, ne? ^_^;; What's done is done. I'm just glad to get through it with a sane mind still intact. Hehe. (And I owe that to all of you.) ^__^

Though, I can't say with full confidence that everything's better now. I still have tons on my plate and with two weeks left before school starts. Hopefully, I can pick up the pace before then. ^_^ *crosses fingers*

Anyway, there's not much else to talk about. It's been a pretty uneventful week, but my babysitting job and playing with little Maddox has kept me occupied, and tired. ^_^ Ah, but it's all good.

Hehe, I guess that's all the useless stuff out of me today. *hugs everyone super tightly* I do miss you guys a lot. I trust everything's going well for all of you. May the rest of the summer be as enjoyable as the beginning. ^_^ Take care, minna. Have a fantastic weekend.

[random thought bubbles:] No pics of Maddox yet. ^^;; I have a few, but they're not all that good. I'll post some as soon as I get nice shots of him.

Thanks for reading! Ja ne!

Sometimes I'm lost even when I think I'm found...

Hello! ^_^ Pretty out of the blue, ne? I apologize for not coming by in the last... 3 weeks now? I can't even remember. My Biology work took over most of the first week, but I have just been sitting around and being lazy for the last two. I guess I just couldn't bring myself to use the computer during that time. I don't know why, but I just couldn't, or rather, didn't. I'm terribly sorry.

I haven't been the most active person here, am I? I missed you all very much. And with that I wonder why I can't even post once in a while. I wasn't really studying these past two weeks. I just felt like taking a break, not so much on my Biology stuff, you can count that in too though, but a break from everything. The pressure of finishing my packet on time, my decisions on next week's volleyball tryouts, which I might not attend after all, and all the little stuff in between. Sometimes I feel like barricading myself in a little room so as to escape it all even for a short while.

It's probably the stress talking, but I'm saying something in there somewhere. ^_^;; I'm sorry. I don't think this was the most appropriate post to say "I'm back." I probably needed to vent. I've been thinking way too much lately. It's becoming a bit of a habit to keep things bottled up inside me these days. I know that's bad, very bad for me actually, but it's all I can do for now. I also know I have you guys, my wonderful friends, but burdening you with my idiotc problems isn't something I would do. ^_^;; (I'll probably get scolded for this. Heh.) This is nothing, right? I have been thinking way too much...

Anyway, it's so nice to come back here again. I still don't know if I'll be able to comment, seeing as I'm feeling a little under the weather today, but we'll see. ^_^ I really do miss all of you. I hope everyone has been doing great and that you're all enjoying the rest of the summer. *hugs super tightly* Take care! Have a lovely day!

[random thought bubbles:] It has been lively at our house this week. My family got the cutest little puppy. His name is Maddox and he's an American Eskimo. He's only 2 months old. ^_^ His white fur is soft and fluffy, and he looks so adorable with his ears folded down. I might have pictures of him soon. ^_^ That is, if I get a decent one. I think he's camera shy. Hee hee.

Thanks for reading! Ja ne!

It's the little things that count...

Hi, guys! ^_^ I apologize for not coming by for two weeks now. I guess my Biology work takes up too much of my time these days. Aside from that, I babysit and do chores around the house. ^_^;; *sigh* But at least it keeps me occupied. I only have a month left before school starts and I want to make the most of it. After all my Biology work is done, I'll be enjoying this last month to the fullest. ^_^

Hm, I can't say there's a lot going on in my life right now. It's been pretty stressful because of all the studying I do, but I'm just glad it's still manageable. ^_^ Um, well, I guess everyday has been okay. There really isn't that much to talk about. Hehe. ^^;;

Anyway, thank you for visiting, you guys. ^_^ I appreciate it. *hugs everyone tightly* I'm sure I'll get back to commenting regularly as soon as my Biology packet is done. I only have two more left and I'm pushing myself to work this weekend. I can't wait to come back here. ^_^ I miss you all very much.

Take care, you guys! Have a wonderful weekend ahead! ^.^ *hugs again* See you all very soon!

[random thought bubbles:] Last night I got to reading some Naruto manga and I've been wondering... has the Naruto craze gone by already? I know it's not that important to think about, but it has been on my mind lately. ^_^;; I'm assuming the Naruto fandom is laying low because of the license. Maybe once it airs on CN, the hype will start up again. ^_^ Heh.

This was a carefully-plotted, pointless rambling by chie (c) 2005 =3

[EDIT / take two:] I got around to making the card. ^_^ Yay!

Happy Birthday to all August celebrants! May you all have fantastic birthdays!

Thanks for reading! Ja ne!

Another year older, another year wiser.

Guess what? I'm officially two years old now! ^__^ How awesome is that? myOtaku.com is already running on its second year! I wish myO, theO, and all its branches another successful year ahead! ^.^ I'm very impressed at the great heights this little home of ours has reached in just two years. It's incredible. Adam-san and all of theO staff have been working diligently in making this site as best as it can be. I'm sure there will be more surprises heading our way in the future, but everything you all have done so far is outstanding. ^_^ Guys, you deserve a break after all your hard work!

To be honest, I never thought I'd reach two years on this site. ^_^;; With my absences last year, I thought I'd never be able to come back here. I know I missed out on a lot of wonderful things, and I deeply regret that, but hopefully this next one's going to be different. I'm really hoping I can come by regularly from now on. With school only a month away, I'm crossing my fingers for a relatively good year. ^_^ I don't want to miss anymore events here at myO, any birthdays or special occasions, I don't want to miss any of that. So, I'm hoping for something better this year... something better. ^___^

*laughs* This post is turning into a speech, isn't it? Err, I'll keep this short. ^_^;; I just wanted to say "Thank you very much" to all my friends. You guys are the BEST! I am truly honored to have met all of you. ^_^ Thank you for the support, the trust, the love, the concern, the hugs, everything! I love you guys! *hugs super tightly*

A new year means change, so I came up with the biggest one I can think of for now... a layout change. ^_^ I hope you all like it. Once again, suggestions and comments are most welcome. Oh, and yeah, it's green again. It's become a tradition of sorts. ^^ Every year, I design a green theme, along with the other ones I come up with along the way. I think I posted the other green one during August too. Heh. ^_^;; This one's not entirely done, though. It kind of became a last-minute layout, I had to edit and re-edit all kinds of images and codes, but hopefully it doesn't look bad. I'm planning on adding a little something in the intro some time soon. It's a long-forgotten project of mine. =^_^= Maybe this time I can finally get it working. *suspense* Haha.

Anyway, now that all of that's done with, here's my little something to remember this day. ^_^

myOtaku.com surely has grown... ^_^ May it continue growing and become the most exceptional site out there...

Take care, you guys! Have a wonderful week ahead! *hugs everyone tightly* ^___^

[random thought bubbles:] Just one question: What was the most unforgettable event that happened to you guys this year?

For me, I'd say all those breakdowns. I know it's not very positive, but hey, they were unforgettable. ^_^;; *lol* I'm kidding. Hm... *thinks* Well, I guess it was forgettable then. Heh. =P

Thanks for reading! Ja ne!

Sometimes, it's just best to let things go...

Um, that was totally random. ^_^;;

Hi, guys. I hope you're all doing well. I apologize for not stopping by yesterday (Monday). There's no particular reason as to why I didn't come, I was just really tired. ^^;; Heh, I guess the weekend got to me. I slept a little late on Sunday too.

Anyway, since I slept for most of the day, I really didn't do very much. However, I did get the chance to go running later that day. ^_^ My Dad has to walk everyday after dinner now, so when my Mom asked him to buy a few things from the grocery store, my cousin and I tagged along. It was a lot of fun. ^_^ We also ran up some streets that were near the mountains, and that provided plenty of leg pain. Hehe. It was hard to run up those streets. ^_^;; But I'm just glad I got to run again. It's been very hot lately so I haven't been running, but thankfully it was a little colder yesterday.

Uh... yeah, enough about that. ^_^ Now on to some other things.

*takes deep breath* I kind of have to take this week off from myO. I know I said no more breaks, but my Biology packet is far from done and it's due in a month. That may seem far from now, but with the amount of work I have to finish by then, I'm not even sure it's enough... ~_~ *sigh*

So, I'm going to try and get as much done this week as I possibly can. I just really need to focus on that packet if I ever want to be done on time. I'm very sorry. I'll make it up somehow. If I miss any birthdays or any special occasions while I'm gone, I'll be sure to make that up too. Regardless, though, I'm always wishing you all a wonderful time.

.... Er, I dragged that out a bit late, didn't I? Gomen. ^_^;; I just thought it wasn't that big a deal. But I'll still miss you guys a whole lot, so I said it anyway. Hehe. ^^ Still, I hope things go smoothly this week so I won't have to worry about my work. -_- *deep sigh*

Ahh, this post is getting way too long. ^_^;; I'll see you guys in a week. I'll probably drop by sometime before then, just to see how everyone's doing. *hugs everyone super tightly* =^.^= Take care, you guys! Have a wonderful week!

[random thought bubbles:] Whoa, I've been working on this post for an hour and a half... I guess I'm at a loss for words today. ^_^;; Heh.

Thanks for reading! Ja ne!

Blah... blah... blah...

Er, I guess a few random stuff will go up there from now on. ^_^;; Heh.

Thanks again for the birthday greetings! *hugs everyone tightly* I appreciate all of them. ^_^ My birthday was a blast! Nothing too big happened, just a little get-together at my house and then my family and I watched a movie afterwards. I wouldn't have wanted anything more.

The movie we saw was the Fantastic Four. It was surprisingly great. ^_^ I liked the humor they put into it. "Torch" was just hilarious. And quite handsome, actually. I think he carried the movie for the most part. ^_^;; Anyway, all in all, it was... fantastic! Hehe.

That was my entire Friday. Oh! I apologize if I didn't comment on a few sites on Friday. I forgot to check back when we got home, although it was pretty late then. Ah, gomen. I'll just remember to get to everyone on Monday. ^_^

Hm, as for today, er... yesterday (Saturday), my family and I went to my aunt's friend's house. They have a pool so I had the chance to go swimming. ^_^ Yay! Hee hee. We also ate, did karaoke, and a bunch of other things. It was a lot of fun! ^.^

And that about sums up my day. There's really not a lot to say, I guess. ^^;; Well, I should get going now. Take care, you guys! Have a wonderful day! Thanks again for everything!

[random thought bubbles:] The Full Metal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shambala movie is officially out in Japan! ^.^ How awesome is that? I would love to see it! I wonder how long it'll take for the movie to be licensed here. I can't wait! Of course, some fansub groups will make it available for viewing... I mean, it's inevitable! ^_^;; Nevertheless, the FMA movie will surely rock!

Thanks for reading! Ja ne!

Thank you so much for the birthday cards and greetings, you guys! *hugs really tightly* I love all of them! ^.^ Thanks for adding some love to this day. Hee hee.

Anyway, nothing much has been going on. I woke up surprisingly early today, though. I woke up around 7, but I was way too tired since I slept around 2 am, so I slept for two more hours and finally woke up around 9 am. ^_^ I commented on some sites afterwards, and then watched Fruits Basket. I just felt like seeing it again. ^^ That was it for the first half of my day.

I think we're going somewhere later after we have a little party. It should be fun. ^_^ What's really cool about today is that I share the same birthday as the little boy I babysit. I think he's having a party later on too. Hehe.

Wow, listen to me babbling here... I really don't have much else to talk about, so I guess that's about it. ^_^ Take care, you guys! Have a wonderful day! Thanks for the comments yesterday too. *hugs everyone tightly*

[random thought bubbles:] Erm.... okay, I don't have one today, but if you do, feel free to toss in some random thoughts. ^_^

Thanks for reading! Ja ne!

No, I didn't make it worse... Heh. ^_^

Konnichiwa, minna-san! How are you guys doing? ^.^ I apologize for not coming yesterday. I decided to continue working on my Biology packet that day. I seriously have to pick up the pace. I have a lot more to do and I'm taking way too much time on only one section of it. I have 5 more to go... *sigh* But I'm sure I'll be able to finish it in time... hopefully.

Anyway, I probably won't be able to come around today. I just feel so tired. I don't know why, though. I got enough sleep last night and I'm not doing anything too stressful... *sigh* I'm guessing it's the weather here in Cali. It's been so hot lately! ~_~ At night, it doesn't seem like the temperature goes below 65.

The weather's finally taking it's toll on me I guess. I haven't felt this horrible in a long while. It's probably nothing serious, but I hate it when I'm starting to feel sick. Especially today... I just hope some sleep can help. I don't want to feel so exhausted and irritable on my birthday. ^_^;; It just brings bad luck. Hehe.

Well, that's it for me. I can't take much more of this heat. I'll probably crawl back to bed and see if it'll get rid of this headache. ^_^ *hugs everyone really tightly* Take care, you guys! Have a wonderful day!

[random thought bubbles:] A special hello to some friends I haven't seen in a while! *hugs Molly, Mimmi, John, rustym, Ryudo and Crucifix very tightly* ^__^

P.S. If I forgot anyone, I'm terribly sorry. I just can't think straight anymore... x_X

[EDIT:] Erm, okay, so it's about 1:14 am here, and I'm not asleep. Hehe. ^_^;; So I thought I'd drop by. I also went ahead and started commenting, which might come in handy tomorrow in case I wake up late again.

Hm, a bit of good news... all the somewhat sick feeling from, uh, yesterday has cleared up. ^_^ My Mom bought a new airconditioner and they installed it in my room! So awesome! Finally, no more icky, warm nights this summer. ^_^ That's a good sign this day won't turn bad.

Anything else? Hm, oh, thanks KI-san for the lovely birthday card! =^_^= It's just so pretty! And, Shanny-san, I'll get one of your banners posted up. ^^;; Sorry it took me a while. I have to put up quite a few more from clubs and stuff too. I keep forgetting! >_>

Heh, I guess that's it for this little update. I'm not so sure why I didn't just post a new one. ^_^;; Oh well.

*sneaks out*

Thanks for reading! Ja ne!

I smell mangos... *laughs*

Uh, never mind that. ^_^;; Anyway, thanks for all the comments last Friday. They were all wonderful. *hugs everyone tightly* Thanks! Sorry for not coming around during the weekend, though. ^^ Oh, and today as well. Not really sure why I didn't come on Saturday, Sunday was a tad busy, and today I babysat. ^_^;;

That kind of sums everything up. Not very much happened during the weekend. Hm, but I did get a chance to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on Saturday. ^_^ It was amazing! I loved the Oompa Loompas' dance numbers! It was so hilarious. Freddie Highmore is just the most adorable kid! And of course I liked Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka, though he did scare me a little bit... just a little. =^_^= *lol* I had a lot of fun watching the movie. My sister and I were laughing the entire time.

[If you were expecting a complete review, sorry. ^_^;; It's late. Brain is already snoozing. Hehe. (But I thought it was a delightful movie.)]

Um, I think that's about all there is to say regarding my dull weekend. ^_^ As for myO stuff, I'll get back to commenting tomorrow. I should be able to finish all the guestbook entries soon too. ^^;; Anything else I'm missing will be on my list, I just need to remember them. ^_^

*sigh* I sound hyper today, but I'm really not. I need sleep. I better get going now. Take care, you guys! Have a fantastic day! *hugs everyone again* ^.^

[random thought bubbles:] Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid has been released! ^___^ FMP fans rejoice! Hee hee. I've already seen the first episode and it was great! I'm looking forward to the development of this sequel. FMP:TSR will rock! ^_^

[EDIT:] Argh! I'm really sorry, you guys. My computer is acting really slow today and I can't get to some sites. I got a chance to go to a few, but that was it. >_< Stupid computer. I should get this problem fixed before tomorrow. Assuming I don't make it worse. ^_^;;

Thanks for reading! Ja ne!

Thank you.

Words cannot express the gratitude I feel after reading your comments, but those two should be able to convey at least part of it. ^___^ Thank you is all I can say for everything you guys have done. I am honored to have friends as amazing as all of you. Thank you very much.

I apologize for feeling so down when I typed up the first part of that other post, though. I didn't mean to be. I'm sorry it even caused anyone to think I was leaving. I would never leave myO! In fact, I came upon some sites that have features like the ones we have here, but none of them can compare to the one and only theOtaku.com. ^_^

I guess I was being a bit overdramatic on my last post. Though I meant every word, I feel as if I made myself sound so... desperate. ^_^;; I don't like my posts like that. I assume a smiley-filled one suits this site of mine better. Heh.

Anyway, this whole sad phase is over and done with it. Besides, I've read many wonderful comments from many wonderful friends! How can I not be over this? ^.^ This week was quite busy, but at least it was a good one. It turned out to be a time to officially get myself together. ^^ Yup, I think that's it.

Oh yeah! Thanks for all the recommendations for anime, and manga as well. ^_^ I got some pretty good titles. I'll start looking for them this weekend.

A reply to some of the titles suggested: Jungle wa Itsumo Hare nochi Guu sounds good. ^_^ I'll look into that. Hana-Kimi has been on my list for quite some time, I just never got around to checking it out. ^^;; Ah, and I simply love Ranma 1/2! I never did get to finish the entire series, but I do have the OVAs. ^_^ It's an awesome show. I finally caught up with my Paranoia Agent episodes too. It's getting stranger and stranger but it just adds to greatness of the show. ^^ As for Ultra Maniac, I've heard of it, and it does sound humorous, so I'll check that out. Elfen Lied does have an intriguing plotline, I read a review on it before, but I'm still a little on the unsure side. ^_^;;

Uh, I think that's it for today. My posts are getting longer again. Hehe. Okay, I better get going. Take care, you guys! Have an incredible day! ^.^

[random thought bubbles:]

Flowers are just beautiful to look at. =^_^=
