I have long since stopped trying to understand my musical taste. I have now gone from Finnish parody of Mulan's 'Make the man out of you' to 'We are number one but it's in Japanese' (which is, incidentally, done by a Finnish lady) to Touhou Project's 'Bad Apple' and honestly, all of them sound good to me. I mean... I guess there's a logical transition between all three, but still.

Oh school... I spent whole July wanting to go back to school. Three days of school and BAM, I was permitted to not go to communication marketing (??) class because of my work experience (JaME) and previous degree. So now I have month free from school. At the end of September I have one class left abd the only thing I have to do before graduating is internship.

 

That was fast.

Of course? Just noticed that the paper we usually get from work "proof that you have worked there" is called recommendation letter. Sounds awful... Here it's pretty clear that you get one from every job. 

 

But yeah, I got that and added JaME on my CV. Looks good in CV because working with languages  and volunteering work. (+ for how long I have worked there)

How do you even work for JaME? I'd love to apply.

Went into a new music/dvd store today and finally found a copy of Only Yesterday. Also was surprised af to see they sell Moomin stuff so I bought an umbrella to match my hipster weeb vibe.

 

I told my mom I plan to go to Japan next spring for a month to try traveling and farming. She just kind of stared at me and said alright, but not to get my hopes up because "a war might break out, they're warning not to go there". Yeeeah okay, mom..

On the bright side of things, my city was in one of the 100% visibility areas for the eclipse, and my general manager wants to make me one of the closing managers when I get the hang of ordering items for the customers.

I need to stop buying things from Yahoo! Auctions through FJ. They charge bank transfer and "plan" fees per item, which is total fucking bullshit, and they really add up!

saaaaame, I hate how they make me have to put in a deposit just to fucking bid on something. :/

Would love to have more energy than a snail after work. aha

 

Thinking of applying for JET again has me sighing and wanting to scream through the application process. Is it almost that time again? Thank lawdy my consulate is pretty great and always go above and beyond. I'm so done with purgatory life though. lol I'm pretty good at helping people get shortlisted so that's.. fun? Not applying alone this year but friend and her boyfriend are applying through Murica. 

 

All I know is if I hand my doctor one more JET document he is gonna be the one screaming.

I love having internet friends but I dread the inevitable day when they pass. I dread the other inevitable day when I find out. There are a lot of people who I have only met through the Internet that have shaped my life and they could pass on and I may never know. I just might see their tag and an indication that they haven't logged on in a long time...

I never tried buyee. Their service is decent, they just charge dumb fees once you get ready to ship everything. When you're ordering the items themselves, you're only paying for the items, there's no Charge 1 commissions, so it's easy to spend a lot. Avoid buying from a vast number of shops, and avoid Yahoo! Auctions.

@nekkichi@Seimeisen I use buyee a lot, and they don't charge me that many fees other than domestic shipping fee & using the Buyee standard plan for insurance (if I choose to use it). You can pay for the item and for shipping at the same time, instead of having to wait for a charge 2 payment notif from FJ.
