Worked out today, finally

Today I worked out. Last week I was feeling kind of sick, so I wasn't able to. I think the week before I was pretty busy and missed a day. I was suprized that I was still able to do everything. Usually when I start working out after a long absence, I have to take it easy. Today wasnt too bad, though.

Earlier today I went to work. It was kind of busy, but everything went well. I made a little bit of money, so that was good. Last night the clocks changed, so the whole day I felt strange. Oh well. Before I went to work, Seika-san came home. She went to a holloween party last night, and didn't come back until 10 A.M. She was still wearing her costume. I made fun of her because the costume was sexy and her hair was reallllllly messed up. hehe. Now I think she is working.

I am kind of sad. I didn't see Yuka yesterday, and she didn't want to hang out today. I wont see her tomorrow, either; and on tuesday she has class until after 7. Oh well.

Has anyone heard of I am a member, and its kind of cool. I think lots of UNO students are members.

Anyways, Tina's birthday was on thursday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TINA!!!!!!! I hope you are having fun in Colorado!

After the party

Last night I had a Holloween Party. It was a lost of fun, and I dressed up as white trash. Lots of people came, including Mike-san. I was suprized. I just found out he was in North Korea, but now he's back. He dressed up as a Taliban, which was really funny. It was actually the same costume as last year, but now he had a real fake beard (I think he looks like one of the muppets, though). Tsubasa dressed up as a cat-girl He is really a guy, and no that is NOT his picture below. Yuka and him changed costumes. If you want to see those and more pics, click on my photos link below.

I guess mike-san has his own blog, so hopefully I will add a link soon. Unfortunately I am kind of lazy, so it might be a while.

Today I worked. It was kind of busy, but nothing went right. I made a little money, but it kind of sucked. Oh well, I will cheer up.

Dont forget to set your clocks back tonight!!!

Feeling Better Already

Thanks to everyone for your concern. I am feeling great. Today I went shopping with Takashi and Tsubasa. We went to Canfields, Burlington Coat Factory, and Westroads. It was a really long trip, but fun. I bought a new coat. It was really cheap, and I thought it was fake leather. I read the tag, and it says "real suede". Suede is leather, isn't it? Either way it is kind of cool.

I am going to have a Holloween Party at my apartment on Friday night. If anyone wants to come, let me know!!! I met some new people today. Their names are Ikumi and Yuki. Ikumi talks more and is more friendly, and Yuki is really tall (for a Japanese girl). I invited them to the party.

I really want to see the Johnny Cash movie. He is one of the coolest persons ever.

Feeling a Little Sick

Today I didn't really do anything. I have a sore throte, so this morning I went to the doctor's office. The same thing happened last summer and I didn't want to go get a check up. It ended up costing me a lot of money, so I decided to go early. They cheked me out, and it is not strep-throte. I rested a lot today, and drank a lot of juice. Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow.

I added more photos to my yahoo account. Check it out.

Anyways I hope everyone is feeling good. Here are some more pics from the bar on friday night. Don't we all look sexxxy? hehe

Just Finished Work

Today I watched the Huskers lose. It was a pretty good game. Yuka and Seika made cha-han. Oishikatta!!! Later I went to work, and it was really busy. I made a little mony, but now I am really tired.

Last night I went to a bar with Yuka and Kana. Later Seika and Michi showed up. Michi was really drunk and funny. I got kind of drunk, but I had a good time. Michi slept at my house.

All right. I have to go to bed now. Tomorrow I have work in the morning and then I have to write a paper. It is due on Tuesday morning, but I am busy all monday, so I have to finish it soon.

Kana, send me photos!!!!!!

I Had a Test Today

I think that I did really bad on a test today. At 5:40 I had a test in Japanese Politics class. The class is kind of boring. I think the teacher is going to retire soon, so he doesnt really care about the class. He just stands in front and talks about himself. I think the class is really boring because I know everything, already. Today I had a test, and I think i did really bad. The test constisted of 2 essay questions, and was supposed to finish at 6:30. I started the first question, and I was really happy because the questions were easy. I finishedthe first half of the first question and stretched. Then I looked at the clock and it said 6:15. Oh no, I only had 15 minutes to finish the first question and answer the second question. I dont think I did well. It's ok. I dont care.

Seika-san was kind of mad at me. I guess that she reads my blog sometimes. hehehe. You should read what I said about her last time. lol. I dont know who her boyfreind is. It is a big mystery. Sometimes she calls him "Mike-san" and sometimes "Mark-san". I dont think Mark-san is correct, but I don't know if Mike-san is, either. She is so wierd. I will have to do an investigation. hehe

Anyways, I think she is depressed, so I will be nice to her for a while.

Trying to Recover from Computer Probs.....

I already said that I had computer problems last night. Now I will try to re-tell most things that got erased.

On Sunday I worked and studied. That was about it, but on Monday, I just worked. At the restaurant, Shige and Sanae came in to eat. One of my friends knows that I am friends with Japanese people, and she said "of course you know the only asian people in the restaurant." She was trying to make fun of me, so I told her "well.... at least i dont have a big nose." (she really does) She got really pissed. hehe

Anyways, on Saturday, I came home from work and Seika-san was sleeping on the couch. I started watching TV, and suddenly there was a really bad smell. Seika was farting in her sleep. Kusakatta!!!! I couldnt believe it.

Today I worked and studied. I also went to Chili's to eat. I used to work there and havent been back for a long time. It was kind of nice. I saw some of my old friends. They might meet me at the bar on Friday. yay.

OK. I have to go now. This wasnt as funny (or long) as the original, but i hope it was still entertaining.


Kind of Pissed

Last night I wrote a really long update on my blog, but when I tried to publish it, the websight went down. I lost everything. Kuso. I will try to re-write it tonight when I have more time.

Finished Work a Little Early

Today I cleaned my apartment and worked. That was about it. I cleaned everything up, even my bedroom. I still needed to unpack some things, but now i am finished. Tonight I didn't make as much as I usually do; only about $70. I usually make around $100. Its ok because I finished early. Now I am watching Donnie Darko and writing my blog.

Yesterday I went to school in the morning. Then my friends and I went to King Kong Burger and ate a l-o-t of food. I came home and played tennis with Michi, Midori, Yukari, and Seika. It was fun. Later I went to Shag, a vodka bar, with Yuka and Kana. I think we will go to another bar next week. ;) I am excited. After that, I came home and drank with Seika and her friends. i actually dropped a beer in the kitchen. The bottle broke and made a huge mess. I couldn't believe it!!! I have never dropped a beer before. Oh well...

I dont know where Seika is. When I came home from work she was gone, but she forgot her cell phone. There were also a bunch of extra DVDs and some other stuff was strange. When I turned on the TV, the station was set to the Spanish language station. Who was here???!!!!! Maybe Seika has more than one guy she is seeing. hehehe.

Busy Days

Recently I have been really busy. Yesterday I played Tennis with Takashi, Kana, and Michi. I was really suprised that Kana was not so good. She is such an athletic person, but I think she doesnt like racket sports. After tennis, I watched Lost at Yuka's apartment. It was fun. Later I went to a party for one of my work friends. It was only a few blocks away, but it was difficult to get there because of all the road work.

Today I had work/school all day. I finished about 7:30 and went home. I washed laundry, worked out, and paid bills. I also applied for graduation. Yabai!! I forgot to do that until an hour ago, and it is due tomorrow. If i didnt finish it, i wouldnt be able to graduate. Well.... Its finished now.

I have to go to sleep now. Talk to you later

Hello everybody....

Aparently when I was drunk on Friday night, I wrote some stuff that I shouldn't have. I apologize to everyone concerned, and I have deleted the things I said. Sorry everyone!!!

I still have a test tomorrow (today, actually....). I think I should wake up early and study. Maybe I will. The things I do and the things i should do are often different. hehehe. Right now Sieka is talking to me, non-stop. She talks a lot. I only listen to her half the time. She LOVES to talk. SOoooooooooo much. Sometimes she is funny. At night she always wears PJs. She is the only older person I know who wears PJs. She also wears a wine colored robe. Kind of like obachan.

Today I was really busy. I went to school in the morning then I worked at both jobs. I finished working at the restaurant at about 11. Then I hung out with Jen (my boss) and Laura (my co-worker). Jen let us drink a couple of beers, and then I went home.

OK, I will go to be now.

No quotes tonight. Sorry

I've got a test on Tuesday, Kuso------

Yesterday I cleaned my apartment and worked. I finished work at about midnight, but my last table was interesting. It was a table of 4 girls. They had REALLY big boobs, and two of the girls were showing them off. I couldn't believe what they were wearing. The girls were kind of fat, too. I like skimpy clothes on girls, but that was toooo much. I think they will probably pop out a kid by the time they are 20.

Anyways, the bartender is a guy named Roddy. He is about 35 or 40 years old, and he loves young girls. Not really young, but anybody 18-25. I guess he is a really dirty guy. He bought all of the girls a round of beers and kept talking to them. They were only 18 years old.

Today I went to work in the morning. Then I came home and slept. At about 6, I picked Yuka up, and we went to Boarders to study. I came home and worked out. That was my day.

Drunk Again...

Yesterday I didn't write because I did nothing. I was in school all day, from 9 AM to 8:30 PM. Then I went home and watched a movie. It was a Japanese movie called The Returner. It was pretty good.

Today I went to work in the morning. My boss has been sick this whole week, but today she was back. I think she had pneumonia or some other lung sickness. Today she coughed a lot, and her lips were split and bleeding. I think it was because of the medicine. Later I came home and played tennis with Seika. She has gotten much better. At about 6, I went to a movie with Yuka, (another) Yuka, Takashi, and Kana. We saw Waiting. It was really funny, but I don't think the Japanese people understood everything. Maybe it was just because I have worked in a restaurant for 5 years and I can relate to the characters. Afterwards, I went to Old Chicago with everyone. There, I met Fumi (who didnt talk) and Mason.
Anyways.... I will write more tomorrow.

Watching South Park

Sorry that I didn't write anything yesterday, but I was studying for a test. I was really worried about it, but I think I did ok. The multiple choice questions were easy, so maybe i got a good grade. It doesnt matter, anyway. I just have to pass all of my classes to graduate.

Yesterday I skipped my morning class. I went to school later and worked. My boss has been sick recently. I wonder if she is ok... Later I hung out with Yuka and studied.

Today I woke up early and went to school. I studied, then took the test. After that, I went to work and then studied at Boarders. Then I met Yuka and we watched "Lost". I love that show! There are soooooooo many questions to answer. Now I'm watching South Park.

Congradulations Ayumi!!!!

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Just Another Manic Monday....

Today was a busy day. I woke up about 8:00 and went to school. I studied and went to class. My class finished early, so I went to the cafeteria and hung out with some people. Later I went to work (at UNO). Afterwards, I bought some soup for Yuka. I went home about 4:30 and had to go to my other job at 5:00. It was really slow. I was going to finish at about 10:00, but one table of ladies came in at 9:45. They wouldnt leave and i had to stay until after 11. I hate when people do that. Now I have to do homework and go to sleep.

I think this weekend i will see a movie. I really want to watch "Waiting". It is about a restaurant, and it looks really funny.

I hope everyone else had a better day than I did. ;)

Never underestimate the power of circumstance to grind your very bones... Never underestimate the perverse power of everything to go wrong, to tend toward trouble. Always the problems seem to come from within; I judge myself to be at fault, for not anticipating the unforseeable, not knowing the way a chaotic function will collapse.

Sunday Night

Today was another busy day at work. It sucks being soooo busy, but it is kind of nice to make more money. I made a lot of money yesterday and today. I really needed it. I still have to pay rent and a couple of other bills. After work, I came home and watched some TV. I fell asleep and couldnt wake up for a long time. I called Yuka, and she was really sick. Get Better Soon!!!! She lost her voice and kept coughing, so i went over there with medicine and OJ.

Later i went to Boarders and studied until I got kicked out. After that i bought some groceries (40 dollars worth!). I came home and worked out. Now i am really tired. I will write some more later.


Some people think
A great god will come from the sky
Take away everything
And make everybody feel high
But if you know what life is worth
You would look for yours on Earth
So now you see the light
You got to stand up for your Rights

Busy Day at Work

today was a really busy day at work. there were sooooo many home-coming kids that it felt like i was at Chucky Cheese. they were really loud, and several of the regular customers left. often, younger people dont know how to tip, and they are very needy. nobody wants to wait on them, but everyone i had today tipped me pretty well.

anyway.... earlier today, i cleaned my apartment. i washed dishes, cleaned the kitchen, and vacuumed. after that i did homework and e-mailed ayumi and kazu.

kazu sends me tapes of japanese comedy shows. they are great, and i love "One Night". He also wants me to send him tapes, so i do....sometimes. now he wants radio programs, but i cant figure out how to do it. if anyone knows how to copy radio onto cd (not MP3), let me know.

here is a great poem from Shakespeare:

What a Piece of work is a Man!
How Nobel in reason
How Infinite in faculties
In form and moving how express and admirable!
In action how like an angel!
In aprehension how like a God!
The Beauty of the World!
Paragon of animals!
And yet to me, what is this Quintessence of Dust?

Hamlet, Act II, Scene 2
Lines 317-322
