okay so I just have to share this with the arashi world.
today I went to the east asian library at my uni campus, because I had to research a bit for one of my papers and well, I got a little distracted in between and started to look for books that focus on the topic of “idols in japan”. and I found.. arashi-related stuff. fandom stuff. fangirl stuff. in a scientific research book.
first I was just flicking through it, finding (among other things) those two pictures
I was like.. oh god how awesome is that? yay! and then I digged a bit deeper.. and found stuff like “member-ai” and “fanservice”…
at that time I was really surprised to read stuff like that.. I mean it’s nothing special, but it’s just totally unusual to find that in a scientific book. xD and even one certain ship served as an example.
I mean.. THEY EVEN QUOTED OHMIYA!! I was sitting in the tram while I was reading everything.. and I just really didn’t know how to react… on the inside I was like.. “OKAY WHERE IS THE SAKURAIBA SECTION” haha
and there was also this sentence that I cracked up about:
“Fans can, if they wish, frame the petite, quiet Ohno as a sexually aggressive seme or muscular and “mature” Sakurai as a willing uke.”
I really wanted to just break out into laughter when I read this.. I never thought that research can be that freaking…. interesting. Let’s just call it interesting haha
My boyfriends coming to stay over soon:D
He’s coming on the night of Friday 21st and staying till Sunday 23rd:) (which will be out 15th month anniversary) and we’re having the Sunday as our Christmas:’)
But on the Friday we’re going out for a posh meal in which I’m making him dress up all smart and I’ll go in a dress so woo:3
Then on Saturday I think we’re making a ginger bread house if I buy one, and going shopping for his parents presents, and then maybe going to ride my old horse:) So I can laugh at him all the time:’) and then on the night we might be doing Chinese lanterns o.0
Then Sunday is Christmas..for us:D and I have him like a shit load of presents in a fricking huge bag:3 and I’ve got his family..a bit too much, but ah well:)
I hope it snows though so I can cover his face in snow and throw snow balls at him:$

I have had such a lovely morning, y’all! I didn’t sleep last night so I was up and moving at like 7. So I moseyed around my room for a bit, read some more but for pleasure this time considering I was up all night reading. Then I walked to Ingles (The local grocery store) and got a big bottle of Coke for my friend for christmas because he is horribly addicted to coke. It was funny because I payed for it in dimes and pennies. But I had a lovely walk in the crisp morning air and a nice little time to just appreciate silence.
I got back and made myself fried eggs and fried sweet potato hash browns for breakfast and I sat on the front porch of the dorm and looked at the low lying fog over the grass as I ate and sipped on hot coffee.
Now I am drinking more coffee and listening to music while writing my last paper!!!! Once I am done with this, I just have to wait for the library to open so I can print all 10,000 papers I need to print (all of which I am confident on) and do my jury folder. I feel so prepared you guys! It’s a great feeling!!!! I never feel prepared, let alone this far in advance.
I’m sorry for all of the long posts lately. I know they are just about my day and studies but I like to write about it. It makes me feel good.
Oh! And I am going to be finishing the semester with either a 3.9 or 4.0! YEAH! I’m excited about that as well. Even though I got a B on my music theory exam :( I was so mad at myself for that. I have an A in the class but I just mess up a lot on tests and so I just made a lot of silly little dumb mistakes and so I got a B. I will still finish the class with an A but I am just disappointed in myself because I know I could have done better. But in the end, when you look at the big picture, it’s not that big of a failure and I should be happy with myself for doing well in the class overall. Especially considering 3 of the 7 students in my class didn’t pass. It was a hard class so I guess a B on the final isn’t that bad as long as I have an A in the class.
A random musing on fandoms.
I believe there is a deeper reason behind liking the shows/books/movies we do other than that they’re enjoyable.
I think everyone wants to be a hero. At least I know I do. The lives we lead, I think those are the ones that are depressing. Even now, I’d do just about anything to make a difference, to matter, but what the hell is there to do?
There is nothing, really. Just school and work. Endless monotony, ho hum.
Sure, our favorite characters face danger, heartbreak, immense sacrifice, pain, but at the end of the day we love them so much because of that and here we are sitting on computers and in beds across the world idolizing these fictional heroes and heroines, and yet we sit on our lazy asses and do nothing.
It kills me a bit. It hurts to think I’ll live my life as a cog in an endless machine. I’d like to think if I got the opportunity, I’d be a hero too.
Hmm, I’m really, really tempted to update this blog. But wow, my last post was back in September. It wasn’t really that long ago, but it does feel like I haven’t been on here in ages. I haven’t actually watched a ghibli movie ever since that post :/ (that’s pretty sad) But now, I have the sudden urge to watch Laputa tomorrow, or even better, have a ghibli marathon :’) I think I just really needed time to be away from tumblr and this blog…I feel much better now :)
