I'm actually in a great mood! AHAHAHA! Although, I'm posting from uni, so I don't have any of the icons or any pics. T.T And the MSN here totally sucks! Oh well. ^^' Can't have it all, right?

I was tagged by two people, but I won't do that now. Coz first, I'm over thinking every little aspect about it and it's taking forever to figure out what to write, etc. The second is coz I've got so much to tell you today, that my post would be too long with the tag. ^^" So I'm sorry Hiko and roseeyes, but the two of you will have to wait. ^^'

Ok, so on Saturday, it was a black tie reception celebrating the Turkish 85th Anniversary of Victory Day. It was boring as hell! I sat there throwing paper airplanes at this 11 year old and 17 year old brothers sitting at my table. Ahahaha. Ok, so it was a little fun. ^^

Yesterday was Father's Day here in Australia. So I gave dad a card and a gift vouchure. I'm sorry, but he's not much of a father to me. *shrug* Anyway, dad, mum and I went to a cafe too. Oh, there was also a farewell gathering with people from my religion. A couple and their toddler and my brother-like-figure are moving out of the area. The whole farewell thing lasted about 3 hours and I only spoke like 4 times. XD

Then at night, I talked to this friend of mine on MSN, who my ex introduced to me while we were dating. She's so cool! XD And I talked to AleXavier. And I was about to go to bed when Fortuna-chan came online. XD But it was 1:30am, and I wanted to go to bed. But then who should sign in??? Darke!!! XD I haven't talked to him on MSN since he left for America in May!!! XD I miss him so much! So I talked to him until 3am. ^^" I wanted to talk more, but you guys know what happened the last time mum saw I was up that late. >.< *sigh* I went to bed, but I couldn't sleep until 4am. XD Thank God my class today starts at 4:30pm. Ahahaha. Oh man, has it already been over 12 hours since I talked to him? The time's passing by so fast! >.<

Argh! But I hate the MSN here at uni! I thought I saw him come online, but it said he's offline. T.T So I couldn't talk to him. But that's if he really did come online. T.T *sigh* Ok... Bye bye good mood... T.T

Alrighty then, I gotta go. Bye~! ^^

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Iím just watching Love Actually for like the third time this year on TV. Someone on Channel Ten must love it as much as I do. XD I mean come on! Hot English guys! XD Which is why I used that icon. ^^í *cough cough* Ok, itís a really good movie, even if it the cast was full of ugly English guys. XP Hang on a second, Hugh Grantís dancing!... Damn commercial break! >.< *cough*

Right anyway. ^^Ē I went to the Osteopath and it was quite interesting. The doctor wants to know which of my joints arenít working properly and why. The doctorís going to be realigning my bones from now. O.o From my toes, all the way up my spine to the back of my neck. Lots of poking and crunching and cracking and pushing... But itís not as painful as it sounds, thank God! Definitely worth it. ^^ My bodyís feeling a lot better already. When I told the doctor about all the different pain I feel every day, she was like ďYouíre way too young to be dealing with all this!Ē That sounds about right. ^^í Oh it was so scary when the doctor said ďtake your jeans and top off.Ē O.O Oh and the doctor thought that my mum was my interpreter. Ahahaha. Asked how good my English was and laughed her head off when I said Iím studying Medical Interpreting this semester. XD

I canít believe how many people donít like B-san. ^^Ē Not surprising, since I made him appear like a monster. ^^Ē I donít think heís trying to scare me. Probably just trying to become my friend. And thereís no way he could e interested in me coz he lives with his girl friend. You know like in movies with a bunch of gangsters, youíre most scared of the gangster in the back whoís the biggest, quietest and most normal looking of the bunch? Thatís B-san. >.< But heís not a gangster. ^^

When I mentioned B-san in my last post, BKstyles got jealous that he wasnít mentioned and B-san was. XD How cute! Absolutely adorable XD *hugs Matt* Heís also really over protective of me. ^^ Hates B-san. ^^Ē

I think thatís it, so Iím going back to watching my movie. XD Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Kinda depressed too. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket I just had about enough of all these homeworks and assignments. >.< But I should study... Iíll do so when I finish here. I've got something else on my mind too... *sigh*

I think my high school best friends are fake coz they donít seem to care about my feelings. Li-chan went to Japan for like a year to study and didnít bother to tell me. She came back and didnít bother to tell me. Sh-chan was saying how she wants to get together with me and Lo-chan, but felt that it was unfair for Li-chan, coz she was in Japan at the time. We decided that we should wait until Li-chan comes back to have a reunion. And then I found out last week that Li-chan was back from Japan, and that my three friends had already had a reunion without me by going out for dinner and karaoke... None of them bothered to tell me. I heard about their get together from Sh-chan on MSN. And on top of that, she had the nerve to tell me that I should catch up with them sometime... *sigh*

Um, yesterday during my classís break, B-san came up to me. (the guy I ďhelpedĒ with his assignment) He put his hand on my shoulder (I was sitting at my desk), leaned in really close to me and asked how I was doing. Man! Heís so scary! And he reeked of cigarettes! >.< Ew!

After class, I was walking towards my bus stop, and he stepped in front of me and blocked my way. O.o He asked if I was avoiding him. I wanted to say yes, XD but I said no. ^^Ē He said ďare you sure?Ē and I said that I was, and that I was just trying to get away from him coz I need to cross the road to catch my bus. XP I said good night, gave a little bow and ran away! XD Heís so scary. T.T

Iím starting to be scared of his friend K-san. Even though heís done nothing to scare me. ^^Ē Oh well. XD

I saw the lunar eclipse. XD Totally cool! But the pics turned out crap. >.<

Iíve got two exams tomorrow and I didnít have time to study for them, so wish me luck. XD I really need it. ^^Ē

Oh and good news. Iíll finally be going to the specialist about my legs on Thursday. ^^ I'll let you guys all know how it went. ^^ ($85 for an hour... it better be worth it!)

Iím really sorry Iíve been gone without saying anything. T.T

Iíve been so busy. T.T Itís very sad. TT_TT Very very sad. T.T Some of you would know that I have to study at least 40 hours a week (including 12 hours of class time), but Iím studying 50~60 hours a week, and Iím still falling behind. O.o Damn you university! (apparently ďdamn youĒ is my phrase of the week... I donít know why, but Iíve been using it a lot ^^Ē) So yeah, thatís all Iíve been doing while I was gone. Trying to catch up with my work, but since that doesnít seem to be happening, I decided to post. XD

Other than that... Letís see now... I found out that my high school best friends are fake friends. So Iím actually quite depressed about that. Iíve decided to forget about them, and only consider them as acquaintances. You know, for my mental health... But it still hurts... *sigh*

Good news is that Fortuna-chan has the net again! XD I missed her so much! I talked to her on MSN until 3am! God I missed that! XD

It was Hikoís birthday on the 24th! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! Oh and he has good news to tell everyone. XD Hehehe. ^^

BKstyles is getting a new laptop... I think. ^^Ē Coz he said a bunch of technical terms that I didnít understand. @.@ Not really sure what heís getting. >.< But anyway, I know that it has a webcam and a mic! Which means Iíll FINALLY get to meet him! Kya~! XD *jumps up and down*

Ok, itís past midnight so I have to go. Not to mention I still have a bunch of studying to do. T.T Oh and since Iíve totally broken my posting routine XD Iíll be posting whenever I get the time. ^^Ē Which might mean you guys have to come to my site more often. XD Ahahaha. Oh and Iíll do my Picture Guessing Game on Fridays. ^^ I donít know why, but I still feel like I need a routine for that. ^^Ē But since everyoneís been so patient and forgiving about my sudden absence, here it is. ^^

Picture Guessing Game 5 Round 2

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Clues:
Hiko guessed that itís a ceramic type thing. ^^ Which is right. Well, this one in particular is the candle version. But itís usually made out of ceramic. I just donít have one. XD

Fortuna-chan guessed that itís an animal. Well, it isnít. ^^Ē But itís of something thatís alive. Well, not really I mean... Ok, if I told you, Iíll be practically giving you the answer! XD (I think I just confused everyone. ^^Ē)

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Good night everyone. ^^

So, the funny story. XP
On Monday, I was at the station waiting for my train. There was this old lady (age 65~70?) waiting for her train on the platform opposite mine. Then this lady suddenly pushed the Emergency Button. O.o And of course, it starts beeping. Then an announcement starts and the guy says over the speakers ďAttention passenger on platform 4, the Emergency Button is for emergencies only.Ē The lady shouts out into the air ďI want to know what time the train for City Central for Sydney comes.Ē Iím thinking that itís totally strange coz we are in Sydney. o.o So the guy over the speakers tell her that itís coming in 9 minutes. And all this time, the Emergency Button is beeping non-stop.

The lady turns to me and yells ďExcuse me! Can you help me ask these people when the train comes?Ē I start giggling and yell across to her ď9 minutes!Ē But she couldnít hear me or something. So she asks me again. I yelled back ďnext train!Ē By this time Iím giggling uncontrollably. XD And the emergency buttonís still beeping. XD

Ok, so the emergency button was beeping. But now, it started to peep. O.o? Then this ladyís voice came out of the emergency buttonís intercom. ďSydney Police Department. Whatís the emergency?Ē Then the lady replies to the intercom ďI donít need an ambulance. Just tell me what time the next train to the City Central of Sydney comes.Ē OMG she didnít just ask that again. O.o The police officer on the intercom didnít seem to know what to do coz she just stayed quiet for a bit. Then she finally asked the lady to wait a moment. Then the lady that works at the station FINALLY came down to the platform to talk to the lady. ^^Ē

Then my train came so I donít know what happened after. ^^í But I was glad to get out of there. I was laughing so hard by the end of it that people on my platform was looking at me funny thinking Iím crazy. XP

Right then. ^^Ē Wednesday was horrible. I only slept about 4 hours that day anyway. T.T I fell asleep during my first lecture. And you know those chairs that have a table on the side that folds up? When I fell asleep, I accidentally knocked it back to the side of the seat and my books and pens and stuff all flew off and fell to the floor. O.o That woke me up. XD I was dead tired the rest of the day too. So when it was 5pm, I had to have some coffee to keep me awake. Now, people who know me know that I hate coffee. People who know me well know that I shouldnít have any coffee. ^^Ē Thatís coz the last time I had coffee, I became really hyperactive. Jumping up and down, shaking, wanting to climb walls... I totally scared my friends that day. XD So yeah, when I bought the coffee on Wednesday, my friend wasnít too comfortable with it. ^^" It was so yuck that I had to put 5 packs of sugar in it. >.< But the strange thing is, I didnít become hyper at all. O.o? I was still physically tired, but now I was mentally alert. XP I managed to survive another Wednesday. XD

Iíve been having internet problems since Wednesday night too. I thought it was the providerís fault. But today, I discovered that it was the routerís fault. The WAN outlet was broken, so it was straining the router. Which then over heated so the net didnít work properly. And who had the pleasure to call people and fix net and go and buy a new router and set it up and all those pleasant stuff? Me. >.< My dad was absolutely useless. I asked my mum who the man of the house was. And she said that itís me. >.> Oh great. >.< Oh I got a wireless cable this time. So that means Iím not stuck in my dadís little office which was freezing at nights. ^^ But that also means that Iím now in the living room and I have even less privacy. T.T Oh well, at least I can watch TV while I use the computer. Iíve never done that before. ^^

You guys remember Lily the cat, right? Sheís the land ladyís cat. Well today, her son Costa caught a mouse! The mouse was so tiny and cute! XD I have pics. ^^

As mum was taking these pics, my dad called out to us and said that my Luna caught a mouse too! And that she brought it into my room. >.< This mouse was even smaller than the one Costa caught. XD

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I caught the little mousy in a jar. ^^

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Then the land lady and my mum were telling me to kill it. T.T How do they expect me to kill something so adorable??? My mum told me to flush it like in that movie. She said that it can live in the sewer. >.< Then the land lady told me to give the mouse to Lily so that she can kill it. I was about to cry when the land lady told me to pour boiling water on it to kill it! X.X

So what did I do? I took it to a local church and let it go there. ^^ When I got back, the land lady told me that the mouse Costa caught escaped. XD So the two little mice are alive! XD

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

So thatís my life in the past 3 days. ^^ Iíve still got a lot of homework to do. T.T I think I have 4 assignments, 2 presentations, 5 written exams, 9 spoken exams and countless miscellaneous homework, all by the end of October. >.< Ah crap! Listing them made me realise how much work I have to do. And now itís all daunting. T.T *sigh*

Ok, back to work for me. ^^ Bye~! XD

[edit]Comment boxes aren't working for me for some reason. T.T It was working a few hours ago. T.T If you don't get a comment from me, I'm sorry. T.T This also means that I can't read any comments too. T.T But that doesn't mean you can just not comment on my post. ^.~ I'm sure it'll start working soon. XP[/edit]

Argh! So busy! T.T No time to write a proper post. I've got lots to do. T.T I have homework, preparations to do for tomorrow's classes. Wait, what homework? I have homeworkS. >.< I've got assignments too. Ah damn it. >.< No time no time! *runs around gathering her books* Argh! Where's my dictionary!?

I have a funny story to tell you. So remind me if I forget. ^^" It's about an old lady that I saw at the station. Man that was funny! XD

Oh! I saw Harry Potter 5 today with my mum. She's a HP fan too. But she's never read the books. (I think she read book 1...) So yeah, she was pretty lost. ^^" I'm not going to say anything about it anymore, coz I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it. So yeah, I think it was a good movie for anyone who's read the books. And the CG was amazing. XD Um... *cough* I went without my friends. x.x They're not really fans of the story, you see. So I'm not even sure if we're going to go watch it. I couldn't risk not seeing it on the big screen. ^^' But anyway, if they still want to go, I'll be more than happy to see it again. ^^ Oh and one more thing about the movie. I wanted to reach in through the screen and strangle Umbridge!

*prints out leture notes as she thinks of what else she should write*

I'm writing this post directly onto MyO coz of the lack of time. (I usually type on Word first) So please excuse any spelling or grammatical errors. ^^' And I still haven't gotten quite used to the keys, so I ski letters once in a while. ^^" Ah, did you see that? That should be "skip" not "ski". ^^"

Do you guys remember that guy who asked me to 'help' with his assignment? Well, he hasn't asked for any help yet. But either way, he's scaring me. T.T He put his arm around my waist and said "Come on, let's go home." He was joking, of course. But it still freaked me out. >.< No guy has touched my waist since my ex (so that's over 6 months ago). Gya~! It felt weird and scary! x.x He enjoys scaring me! I just know it! >.<

Um... um... um... What else do I have time for?

PhotoBucket is FINALLY working. So here are pics of Kawaguchi, the Japanese National Soccer Team's goal keeper and captain. XD

And here's the whole team. ^^

Note: All these pics are from the Japan vs Australia match. Kawaguchi was the Man of the Match! XD And I got them from AFC Official Websiteís Picture Gallery.

As I wrote the link, I remembered that none of my links in my previous post worked properly. ^^" No one realised it except Hiko. And he fixed it for me. XD Thank you~! XD

Right then, I have to go. T.T I have a full day tomorrow.

I donít think I can post on Mondays anymore. Just too busy. T.T But Iíll post on Tuesdays from now on. So Tuesday and Thursday is just too close to each other, so Iíll post on Fridays. ^^

I didnít get the job! XD Didnít even get a phone call from the pizzeria! XD I know itís incredibly strange that Iím happy about not getting a job I wanted. ^^í But honestly, I was getting really scared about whether or not I would be able to handle it. ^^Ē Oh well. Back to looking for work. And hopefully Iíll be qualified for that one. ^^

My uni timetable is so crazy right now. T.T I canít believe it. T.T

Monday
Japanese: 5~7pm

Tuesday
Interpreting Skills Tutorial: 9~11am

Wednesday
Interpreting Skills Lecture: 9~10am
Second Language Acquisition Lecture: 10:30~11:30am
Second Language Acquisition Tutorial: 1:30~3:30pm
Medical Interpreting Lecture: 4~5pm
Medical Interpreting Tutorial: 6~9pm

I swear the teachers want to kill me. @.@ Oh and thereís only the 4 of us in Interpreting Skills for Japanese, so we only have a class every other week... So that means I donít have to travel so much, have more time to myself, more time to play on the net and Iíll get more practice and comments from my teacher... But I still doubt that the extra attention in class is going to make up for missing half the class time. Iím not good at interpreting so I donít think Iíll get good marks like this. I need more time in class... Oh and coz we get more attention from the teacher, Iím being used as an example a lot. -_- I was asked to introduce myself while my teacher took notes on the whiteboard. She then used that to show how interpreters took notes... Embarrassing!!! >.<

There are only 6 people (including me) in Medical Interpreting too. More time to make a fool out of myself. -_- All the other students, except for my friend, are 3rd year students. So theyíre way better than me. T.T And the subject is so hard! I donít know if Iíll pass. T.T Iíll have to work really really REALLY hard... And this class might get reduced in time too. Since there are so few of us. *sigh*

In answer to Vampire Kissí question, some MyO sites are cut off. Like seriously, straight down the right hand side from around the avi. O.o The words are cut off in mid-sentence. Thereís nothing wrong with yours. ^^

I found two more peopleís site that get cut off on my laptop:
Black Dragon99 (pretty bad)
Sbsp13699 (as bad as Fortuna-chanís)
BUT after reading Ms. Bakura Ishtarís comment, I found a solution! XD Iím so smart! Ehehehe! XD The words are there, I just canít see it. (dur ^^Ē) So how can I see it? I just have to copy and paste the post onto Word, and then I can read everything! Ahahahahaha!!! XD Iím so~ happy! Ok, itís a bit of a hassle and itís not a proper solution, but oh well. ^^ As long as I can read your posts and make proper comments, Iím happy! XD

Fortuna-chan, I found pics of Kawaguchi for you. ^^ but thatíll have to wait since Photobucketís being a pain in the *beep*. So if you canít wait till Tuesday, you can check them out here: AFC Official Websiteís Picture Gallery.

I also went to have dinner at my auntís today... I donít want to talk about it. >.< Actually, there is one thing I want to ask you. My auntís sister-in-law was there too and she was telling us about some of her job interviews. She said that one of them asked her a strange question. I think the questionís funny, so Iím asking you guys. ^^

If you were to steal an animal from a zoo, what would it be?

Funny thing to ask at a job interview. ^^Ē Anyway, I think I would steal a tiger. XD

Oh and just coz I feel like it, hehehe. XD

Open Heart!
I'm really really REALLY exhausted. Yesterday was my first day of semester. The uni changed the timetable for one of my units, so it clashed even more. Lots of problems followed. E-mails were sent. Meetings were held. Long story short (coz I'm seriously too tired to type) I dropped that class and took up a another one. I have to do them both anyway, and it apparently doesn't matter which order I do them... The new unit is Second Language Acquisition. I stll haven't enrolled in its classes coz the changes I made hasn't gone through the system yet.

I've been busy and tired yesterday, so that's why I couldn't update (excuses excuses). I don't even have the next picture guessing game. T.T (yes, that means people got the previous one right) Oh and PhotoBucket's not working... again...

Oh, I got a laptop. XD Iím still trying to get used to it. And Iíve been downloading files from the desktop to the laptop... I didnít know that I have so much things on the desktop. O.o

Thatís actually caused a major problem for me. >.< Some of your sites are, unfortunately, cut off at the side. Some more than others. T.T If youíve updated, and I havenít commented, thatís coz I havenít had the time to use the desktop or the uni computer. So Iím sorry. And please be patient with me. Matt told me to left click, go to encoding, do this this that that... It didnít work... Does anyone know how I can fix this problem? Please?

Speaking of Matt, I mentioned him in my last post, and people didnít know who he was. ^^Ē Heís BKstyles. I met him on Otaku Boards. He has a MyO account as well, but he hasnít posted since last year or something like that. ^^í Iíve never met him before since he lives in America, and I live all the way here in Australia... So Iíd like to take him to the pizzeria if I go to the trial, but I canít. ^^Ē

The sport I was talking about in my previous post was soccer. ^^í Sorry, I shoudíve made it clear. ^^Ē Iraq won the Asian Cup. Saudi Arabia was second. Congrats to those countries. They played really well. ^^ Japan lost to Korea. T.T Korea is third, Japan (the defending champions) is fourth. T.T Iím extremely sad that Japan lost, BUT that was one of the best games Iíve ever seen! XD (the all time best was Japan vs Saudi Arabia) The Japanese goal keeper Kawaguchi (Iím his fan) was scary. Iíve never seen him so angry. O.o But when the 90mins finished, and there was a short break before the extended times, he took his shirt off to change it. And there was this guy standing between Kawaguchi and the camera. Mum and I started yelling ďI canít see! Move away!Ē Yes, my mumís a Kawaguchi fan as well. XP

My other job... Iím still going to work at the community centre as a receptionist. Since thatís a casual job, I donít work there all the time. Just like 2 days month... Maybe... ^^Ē Oh and I can only work there on Thursdays and Fridays, coz of uni. And the pizzeria job is Friday, Saturday and Sunday. So the two jobs doesnít clash. ^^

Itís past 6:30pm right now. If the pizzeria I applied to is going to call, theyíll call soon. That place opens at 5pm and closes at 10pm. Wish me luck. And Iíll tell you about it next time.

Oh I almost forgot, I didnít go see Harry Potter with my friends. T-san wanted to invite Y-chan, and Y-chan was in Japan, so we decided to go another time. ^^

While Iím at it, hereís the list of peopleís sites that are cut off:
BurningDeamon (not too bad, so I can still make out the words)
Darke (cut out pretty bad)
DragonRider22 (the scroll barís cut out)
Fortuna-chan (cut out the worst T.T)
Magnus (the introís cut off, not the post)
Thatís all I can remember right now. ^^Ē

I have to go now. T.T Bye~! See you later. XD

That's right, I'm panicking right now. Lots of panic... Argh! Kya~! Nya~! *runs around in circles* PANIC!!!

Why? Coz I applied for a job. >.<" What was I thinking??? Exactly. I wasn't thinking at all. T.T I saw this sign on a local pizzeria looking for a waitress, so after Matt convinced me to go, I applied for it. (I fell for the "waitresses are supposed to be everything you are. female and cute ^_^" damn him...) I just walked right in and talked to the manager-looking guy. He asked if I had any experience at a pizzeria, I said no, he said sorry and good bye. O.o I told him that I studied Italian back in high school, then he asked my nationality and gave me an application form. Hehehe. I filled it out, handed it to him, he read through it and said that he'll call me on Tuesday for a trial. O.O Kya~~~!!! I'm so nervous right now it's not funny. >.< If I get this job, I'll be working Friday ~ Sunday 5pm ~ 10pm. PANIC!!!

Well, panic is good... Kind of. ^^" I wasn't feeling any sort of emotion since last night, so I'm a little human again thanks to this enormous sense of panic. ^^'

Before I get to what happened last night, I'll tell you about Tuesday. ^^' I went and saw Transformers with my dad. That was an incredible movie! XD I also went to the book shop there and bought Harry Potter book 7. XD Yup, I just walked in, asked for it and bought it. ^^ I'm up to chapter 8 right now. I want to read more, but I don't want to at the same time. It's a dilemma. T.T It's exciting, but really sad. *sniff*

Wednesday, I played pictionary with Hiko. It was so much fun! XD I was waiting for Matt on MSN, coz it was his birthday. He said he's going to be on on Tuesday nights (Wednesday afternoon for me). But he wasn't. T.T I couldn't wish him a happy birthday. T.T

Yesterday, was Korea vs Iraq on Asian Cup. I thought my dad was taping it, and I wasn't particularly interested, so I was on the computer for half an hour, then reading Harry Potter, waiting for the Japan vs Saudi Arabia match to start. So I couldn't watch Eureka Seven or Trinity Blood. T.T So I was pretty upset. (Both coz I wasnít able to watch my anime, and the Harry Potter story being sad) Oh and the commentators were really crap again. >.< THEN just as the Japan vs Saudi Arabia match was about to start, I realised that dad didn't tape the Korea vs Iraq match! That means I could've flicked back and forth to watch my anime! X.X That was so mean of my dad coz he knew I wanted to watch my anime. He could've told me that he wasn't taping it. AND dad wasn't even watching the match coz he was asleep. T.T

So I'm upset about Harry Potter, Eureka Seven, Trinity Blood and the stupid commentators, then dad starts to get angry t me coz I won't let Luna out. It was almost 11pm! I don't want her going out that late! So dad and I had a fight again about Luna...

I was so upset by the time the Japan vs Saudi Arabia match started that I really didn't pay much attention to the game. T.T Oh and I've never seen Kawaguchi so angry during a match, so that was scary. >.<

At every foul or yellow card, the commentators would say "That was a little bit harsh". And they would keep bringing up the Japan vs Australia game, talking about "controversies". Heh. I seriously started wondering if they knew any English. They're supposed to be professional commentators, but the way they talked... They talked like a couple of dads half drunk at his son's soccer game at a local park. I don't call that professionalism. Those commentators really killed the whole game of soccer for me. T.T Those biased bunch of morons... They said that the Japanese striker was less than impressive in the match against Australia. WTF? He scored! And they keep calling Nakamura as Nyakamyuiller... So f*beep*ing annoying!!!

Japan played really good again. They were amazing. They were good as individuals, and great as a team. They just lacked that... something...

Saudi Arabia played great as individuals, and played good as a team. They had that something the Japanese team needed. That something to score goals... That's why I think Japan lost 2-3. T.T

Don't look at me typing "T.T" and say that I'm sad about Japan losing. I'm not. I have no feeling towards that match. I'm numb.

Well, at least I'm sort of out of that numbness coz I'm panicking about the waitress job. >.< I don't think I can do it. I'm going to fail the trial. I just know it.

I'll hopefully go watch Harry Potter movie 5 with my friends tomorrow. I still don't know if we're going, meeting where, at what time... I'm waiting for a call from a friend with the details...

Ok, I'm going to go and read more Harry Potter and cry my eyes out. T.T

The Adventures of Z-man!

Raina: So, what are we doing today?
Z-man: I'm going to fight my enemy that's over there.

Raina: ... Where? All I see is a bunch of my crap, the vacuum, my school bag and the old monitor my dad said he was going to throw away like a month ago.
Z-man: Move closer! There, that yellow enemy on the floor in front of the vacuum.
Raina: *looks carefully* ... Are you serious?
Z-man: Of course I am!

That's right. I only have 1 more week of holidays. T.T I'm happy that I'll have something to do and be out of the house... But my timetable is really bad! X.X Just look at it!

Monday
Sociolinguistics Lecture 1:30pm ~ 2:30pm
Japanese 2pm ~ 5pm

Tuesday
Interpreting Skills Tutorial 09:00 ~ 11:00
Sociolinguistics Tutorial 11:30am ~ 1:30pm

Wednesday
Interpreting Skills Lecture 9am ~ 10am
Medical Interpreting Lecture 5pm ~ 6pm
Medical Interpreting Tutorial 6pm ~ 9pm

My Sociolinguistics Lecture and Japanese class clash! And I can't change the time for either one. T.T And just look at Wednesday! I have to be at uni for 12 hours! And seriously what's that 7 hour gap between Interpreting Skills and Medical Interpreting!? O.O I'm so going to die! Ok, at least it's only 3 days a week, so I can look for work on the other days. But still! Oh and my mum said that she'll come pick me up on Wednesday nights so I won't have to take public transport... But yeah, I'm a 20 year old uni student who's going to have her mommy pick her up from school...

So what have I been doing this past few days since my last post? First, trying to stay sane while I endure being offline. I used to talk to Matt everyday, but I only talked to him yesterday and today. T.T Not fair! Other than that, MANGA and SOCCER! XD

"Nakayosi Lovely Summer Edition" was long... 700+ pages of shoujo manga... But I enjoyed ever page! XD I really like Kei Enue. At the moment, she's the mangaka of one of my favourite mystery series. ^^ "Meittantei Yumemizu Kiyoshirou Jiken Nooto" (Great Detective Kiyoshirou Yumemizu Case Notes).

"Eureka Seven" was beautifully drawn. ^^ Now I finally know what happened on episode 1 of the anime! XD And the pace was much faster that the anime too. I like it like that. That's also the usual style of writing for Japanese novels. What was it called again? "Economical with words". ^^

OMG! I'm so in love with "Trigun"'s mangaka, Yasuhiro Nightow's drawing right now! XD It's so strong and bold and detailed! But then it gets round and shoujo-ish during the comedy scenes! Well, that's normal but the transition's brilliant! But the action scenes were a bit hard to understand at times. I guess it's coz the page amount's limited... Anyway, Vash is so cute! XD

I nearly cried reading "Saikano". T.T It's so sad and sweet. T.T I used to like the main character Shuu-chan, but not really anymore. Hmph. I shouldn't say why, coz I don't want to spoil it for anyone. I wasn't that into Chise (other main character) after vol 1, but I like her more now. ^^ *hisses at her bf (Shuu-chan)*

Today I watched "DBGT" the DVD. XD It's been ages since I watched these episodes! About 8 years in fact. ^^' I watched it in Japanese first. Oh did it bring back happy memories. *hugs DVD* Then I watched it again in English... The Japanese was better. I'm going to watch it again in Japanese with English subtitles this week (hopefully). I LOVE DBGT!!! And Trunks' voice in Japanese is so hot! Trunks is so hot! XD I have a crush on him since I was 10. XD

Ok now to soccer. I should warn you though, I'm a pretty big fan of the Japanese national team, so I'll really heat from now. ^^'

It's that wonderful time again! Asian Cup!!! XD Japan won 3 times in a row! XD We're the best in Asia! XD In your face other Asian countries! Japan's the best and we worked hard to ear it baby! Thatís right!!! And we've got the hottest players! *cough* No one can EVER deny that Kawaguchi is the best goal keeper the world has ever seen! XD The captain of the national team! That's right! Whooo!!! He's the captain and the oldest player! The one with the experience! Japan would be lost without you Kawaguchi!!! (Yes, I'm a huge fan of his...)

Saturday was a night I was waiting for since the group games in last year's FIFA World Cup! Since that faithful day... Since that day Australia bought its win coz they hired the best coach in the world, Guus Hiddink... Damn you Hiddink! That win should've been Japan's! And Schwartzer fouled Yanagisawa! Not the other way round! Even FIFA made a full report about that! There was no "controversy" in it! You hear me Australian commentators!? FIFA is the law of soccer! If they said that Australia fouled, then Australia fouled! Don't go throwing around the word "controversy" if you donít know what it means!

Tha~t's right. The rematch was on Saturday night. Mwahahahahaha!!! That's right. Sweet revenge. Hehehehehehehehe. XD 0-0 at the end of the first half. Then IT happened. At the 69th minute. Australia scored a goal! NO~~~!!! >.< BUT! At the 71st minute, Japan scored the equaliser! YES! I love you Takahara! XD Then that bas*beep*d Grella elbowed Takahara in the face 5 mins later! O.o Just coz he scored a goal!? What a sore loser. He got an instant red card and was sent off! Serves him right! But you know what the commentators said? "Controversial"! What's so controversial about that? Grella elbowed a player in the face! It's just I tell you, JUST!

1-1 and the game ended. But it didn't end there coz it was the quarter finals. The knock out stage! It can't end there. No, we need a winner. Not a draw. So 30 extra minutes. 30 gruelling minutes. Australia only had 10 players. Japan had 11... Still no goal! Argh! I was going insane!

Then the worst happened. Penalty kicks! I was about to have a heart attack. Who saved the day? Who saved the whole of Japan? My hero Kawaguchi! XD I can't believe how good he was! He knew where the ball was going! AHAHAHAHAHA!!! It was the best!

That's damn right! JAPAN WON!!! 4-3 at the penalties! We won! We won! We won! Take that you s*beep*t head Socceroos! XD

Here's the Sydney Morning Herald's take on the match:

Socceroos fall short when put on the spot

Be warned though, it's really biased. The more biased the media are, the more people actually believe in the non-existant "controversies". >.<

I know that I've been really biased too, but I have really good reasons for that. The Socceroos think that it's manly to foul other players (like trip them or kick them). And when the player fouled is hurt, they go up to him and tell him to stop faking and try to make him stand. Then they laugh... It's so annoying. But when a Socceroo is touched by a player, they dive and roll around on the ground in "pain". That's so manly. The Australian players have absolutely no respect for their opposition. I'm not the only one who thinks this. There's actually 1 relatively smart commentator who said it. And the Iraqi goal keeper said it too. People FINALLY said it! XD The Australian team blame others when they themselves make mistakes. They even swear at the referees! O.o It's absolutely rude!

It doesn't help when the Australian commentators and the Australian media are always on their side. The players are like children. Or better yet, misbehaving dogs on a leash. Give them a bit of slack and they go off running.

But they played really well. I can't deny that. Although it was mostly "I can do it myself *runs on his own to the goal*". They were good individually, but not really as a team. They didn't listen to their coach (the new one, not Hiddink) too. The defenders were in the mid-field, the mid-fielders were in the attack position with the forwards... It was a mess. The coach (Arnold something... I think) was telling them to get back int position, but no one was really listening. But still, the individual players were great. And they were all really fluid in their movements. Something the Japanese side lacked.

The Japanese team really improved in the past 10 years I've been watching them. Kawaguchi was the goal keeper throughout those years. XD The passes were brilliant. They ran fast too. They knew what theor individual role in the team was and played well. they stcicked to the plan. They had excellent communication while on the field. It was art! They're shorter than the Australian players, but they had great height in their jumps. XD The whole gameplay was incredible! That was the best Japan has ever played! But yes, they lacked fluidity. They would stop and think each move before they passed the ball. It gave the Australians a chance to think of their move too. ^^'

Next is Japan vs Saudi Arabia! XD I can't remember when that is. ^^" Don't worry, I only get this heated up when it's against Australia. ^^'

Oh and I learned that I know more Japanese swear words than I thought I did. ^^" Yeah I was swearing and screaming my head off during the match. XD But so were my parents! XD

Anyway, this is way too long. ^^" Thank you if you actually read all that. ^^

Here's the link to the video I mentioned in my last post.
