That's Japanese for "Long time, no see." XD And it is an understatement.

Long story short, I've been back home for exactly 3 weeks. Things predictably got crazy the last couple of months I was in Japan, packing up and spending every weekend going to goodbye parties and trying to squeeze in last-minute sightseeing (and karaoke!). So I sort of dropped RPing suddenly and stopped checking my secondary email. ^^; As a result, I missed some things—some automatic payment failures on my journals due to an expired credit card, some very sweet and somewhat concerned emails due to me being entirely absent on LJ and AIM, and most importantly what everyone has been up to!

So what's up, everybody? :D

As for me, I'm simultaneously not up to much and up to quite a lot. (Figure that one out. XD;) On the one hand, I have been relaxing… Beating my mother at Dr. Mario, taking moonlit swims because it's too hot during the day, chatting with my sister all night until the sun starts to rise. On the other hand, she and I decided pretty quickly that we needed to switch our rooms around, and we've gone all out. After a few trips to IKEA, I've got all new furniture in here, aaaaaand our beds are finally in separate rooms. We used to sleep in the same room so we could chat all night, and left the other room for desks and books and things. But I got so used to living by myself that we decided I should at least have my own space. And I like it now; it's pretty. ♥ I'll have to take some pictures.

Things are winding down on that now, though, and I'm still taking the rest of the year off. I've got a decent amount of money saved up from teaching, and since I'm living at home I don't really need any income. I would like to pursue a bit of singing and acting while I have time like this, but at the moment I'm not really thinking about that. First I'd like to jump back into RPing!! I'm free as a bird, and what better way to spend it than playing and chatting with you guys?? :D You all kept me SANE through what was, for me, both a very difficult and rewarding experience. I can never thank you guys enough. ♥

I'm sure I'll do a long and more reflective post about my time in Japan (maybe several), but for now I just wanted to update and let everybody know what was up. You all are awesome! I'm anxious to catch up with everyone. ^_^

It's so good to be home~ ♥

*twirls you* I'm so glad you're back. I also have time again as I don't have classes but part time work as I search for work.

If you're good for picking up some older threads, I want to know what happens next with Nick and William. Though I'm always up for anything. *snugs*

*twirls* Eee! ^o^ ♥ *throws confetti*

Isn't being out of school nice? I didn't get to enjoy it last year because I was packing and stuff, but I am definitely enjoying it this year~. Good luck with the job search, btw!! *cheers on*

And I am definitely up for picking up old threads!!! I shall have to put up a back room post asking if there are any others out there people want to continue. In the meantime, I will have a look at that thread tonight. *hearts it so much* Maybe I'll even tag back before I collapse; we'll see. If not, tomorrow! ^_^

Yes, I'm still getting used to the fact that I'm done and I plan on enjoying it as much as possible. I've done looking for a job before so that's not going to be as stressful.

At the moment, I should be asleep but its not happening just yet so I'm responding. Tag whenever and I'll be around until Thursday when I get a wonderful family vacation for about six days, so ping too. I don't have to work this week too so it feels like a real break. Errands and things are doable.

Welcome back! It sounds like you've been having an awesome time, if a busy one, and I totally support having a relaxing readjustment to the US. :D

I got my dance teaching certification, and I'm currently in the middle of running [livejournal.com profile] fma_ladyfest and prepping for Dragon*Con cosplay, so I am having great fun and also haven't been around much for RP myself. But come September, we should totally play, because you're awesome to thread with.

Yay certification!!! That's awesome. \^o^/ *throws confetti* We should totally play! I am up for anything whenevers. I currently have no plans in September, so I should be free for a while. ^_^

Hey! I was just thinking about you the other day and missing you - wondering what happened to you.

Glad to see you're alive and well and can't wait to see you in chat and everything.

Eee thank you! I'd love to play too!!! ^___^ I'm missing Rose a bit; I'd love to get back into her. Not to mention all my other pups! Come to think of it, I haven't had the chance to thread with a bunch of yours either, which we should totally do... Basically I'm just up for anything! XD ♥ Let me know good times when you're free! :3
