Pointless Ramblings

I posted a poem in the [expressions] part of my page. It's old-- don't know how old-- and it's not one of my best poems, but hey. *shrugs*

SO, it seems we're moving into our place a wee bit backward. We started off with necessities. Ya know, BED. Then my sister, because she's in the process of moving into my grandmother's house as part of the "I'm going to tear down my Manoa house and build a MANSION" endeavour, was sweet enough to hook us up with a couch. We already had a coffee table. And we bought a thing to put our tv on and a small desk for my computer.... CONCURRENTLY, my daddy is moving out of his place, into my grandmother's place, so he's also trying to get rid of furniture. We take a table off him-- it became Yoshi's "desk"... but the real kicker: yesterday, he gives us a dresser [yay, I can finally take my clothes out of their former trash-bag homes] and a CARPET! YAAAAAY, carpet! But problem: all the furniture is already IN the living room. Meaning: most move allllll furniture OUT of living room, lay down carpet, and then move it all back IN! -_-;; *is lazy*

In other news, the job search seems never ending. For those of you familiar with Japanese radio, New York based J-wave is opening a Waikiki-based studio and plans to broadcast a new, "Hawaii brand" of J-wave. [http://www.j-wave.co.jp] I am meeting with the CEO of J-wave, Nishikawa-san, on Tuesday afternoon. They have an Assistant Director's position available and they want to give it to a Hawaii local. My issue? Can I speak Japanese well enough to handle the AD position? I suppose we shall see.

And just for fun, some pictures.

A picture of Yoshikazu and me. Taken @ Nova, right before he left for Arizona. He's currently in Phoenix, studying Harley Davidson Mechanics at the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute.



And me in a Shiisaa beanie that Mina gave me a loooong time ago for Omiyage. Shiisaa are Okinawan mythical beasts that are like, lion/dragon? They bring good luck.

yay! pointless ramblings are fun :)

I thought your poetry was nice, one of those "awwww" warm & bubbly poems :)

and you're moving in correctly! or at least if it was a dorm. think of it this way, any time you want to procrastinate from real life, move your furniture around :)

and you don't really have to move everything out. put the table on the couch, roll the rug out, put table down, lift couch and shove rug under, lift other tables and shove rug under, lift chairs/tv/whatever and shove rug under :) shoving is a key skill to have when moving in!

*love & hugs to both of you*
