Oh, look, I sing!

Okay, be honest. How many of you knew I liked to sing?
Well, I do! And I've uploaded a few to my Youtube account, which I am also using to upload any PV (personal Videos) I might decide to do, too.

I had to make an entirely different account because my " xRiiiNx " account was hacked-
and all of my videos were just deleted. I announced my account had been hacked on my account after I saw it, and even changed my password. But when I came back, my account was deleted.
Not sure how it happened, but oh well.

This is my new account→ Action Kanon


Here is my first PV to Rin Kagamine's "Meltdown" called "Roshinyuukai ato" (炉心融解後)

 I used my new web-cam that I got for Christmas.

Anyways, here are my singing videos~  




That's all I have so far. I really wanted to record a video of me singing in English, Korean, and Spanish today, but I don't feel like getting all dressed up- I probably wont all week. But when I do I wont be in that silly uniform, haha. I'll be in a cute outfit~! Or at least a cute top.

That's all for now, bye bye!

My life's plan.

So, I just had two more friends move to Japan, a few days ago.
I should check my E-mail more often.

Anyways, that has made me think about what I'm going to do.

For now, I'll sit on my bum and get about $20.00 a month, and save it.
It will be spent on nothing for now. Not food, not my dogs food, not anything.
And then, sometime in the far-off future, I'll change my name legally.

Then we can start moving~~
and I'll get my G.E.D under that name, the name I want to have, and I'll study to get a scholarship
of any kind- anything I can get to get me in to a community college,
So I'll study to get my degree in what I need to enter in to the Jet Program, where I teach English
in Japan for a bit. I could not only see my friends, but get to be an English teacher-
I already am one online, least I could do is study it so I get paid, I suppose, haha.

I know some people are thinking,
"Why don't you just live with your name, and get you G.E.D?"
But my name, to me, is so ugly! I hate it so much~! ><
My surname is just not pretty. It sounds so mean, and just... UGH!
It has nothing to do with my dad, it's just an ugly name, and that's that. Nothing pretty about it.
Not like I would have kept it when I got married, anyways...

But my mum... she just has bad taste in names.
"No one else had your name when I gave it to you!"
Bull crap. It was the number 3rd most popular name in the entire country!
You got it from a stupid T.V show did you think you were the only one to steal the name from it?
Jeez~ ><

So I will get my name changed, and I wont do anything before it.
My name makes me feel ugly ,and I don't wan to keep it- but I don't mean offence
to my family (at least not my dad) or anything like that.

I don't know what'll happen in my life, but if my name doesn't change, I wont either.
And that's my position on that.

Now, wish me luck on getting what  want done before I'm forty~

Ebay- I finally got my pen!

Hey, everyone! I hope you're all planning a happy Christmas!
Today I had to pick up my pen I ordered from a shop on Ebay called profashional_accessory, and I ordered a cute bunny pen with Korean pen writing on it. I ordered it in early November, expecting delivery no later than Dec. 15th, but giving a little lee-way of a few days.

The item:

I e-mailed them, I had no idea why I had not received my item! It'd been more than long enough.
Apparently, the USPS had updated their website, but Ebay didn't update at all.

The post man tried to deliver my item, and said he left a notice. What lies from the post man!
We received absolutely no notice he had even been here. Of course, I thought at first it was the senders fault, but that's not so.

Anyways, they sender was just perfect! They sent the item like they said, even express at the request I sent for them to add $2.00~ my post man just screwed up.

(Note: I recommend this seller fully, they not only did exactly what they were supposed to, but helped resolve my issue when I mailed them. Item is so cute!)

Anyways, I had ordered the bunny pen, this is what it looks like:

Isn't it way cute? I love it!  It was supposed to be a birthday present, but I waited so long,
I think I might just keep it. I might even have to order the other designs~

100% on this seller, no doubt! They're helpful, sell cute items, and have great shipping~
you should definitely buy from them!

What's up with me?

Wow. I don't have many interesting things to say, anymore.
I'll tell you about things lately.

First off, it's 4:47am on Tuesday, and he's been not acknowledging whenever I speak to him,
and it's starting to get on my nerves. I'll just not talk at all then.

I went to the V.A hospital with my dad yesterday, I really just went because I wanted to get coffee from the little coffee shop inside there, but also because I don't trust him to drive long distances on his own anymore. You know, 'cos he's old and stuff.
We get there, and we discover that they have started serving Starbucks coffee now!
Which would have been great, but they only have a quarter of the menu Starbucks has.
Did not make me a happy camper.

But, I got a drink so did dad.
I hadn't eaten after about 5:00 am, and didn't get another chance until 4:00 or so.
We got to the V.A about 10:10am and got out about 3:49pm... way too long, I tell you.

At the Starbucks, I saw an old guy trying to decide what to order. The man asked for something with ham in it, and they didn't have any. "All we have is something with turkey in it" she said, taking out the Sandwich and showing it to him. "Does that have ham in it..?" he asked. "No, sir, it's turkey. We don't have ham." "Well I don't like turkey, I like ham." "I'm sorry, sir." "Fine then, give me that." She handed him the sandwich and told him his total. "What you got to drink?" he asked. "Coffee, tea, and water, sir." she answered. "What kind of coffee?" he asked; she named the coffee types to him. "Well I don't want none of that. You don't got no coke or nothing?" "No, sir. We have Frappuccinos..." "I don't want a frappuccino, I want a coke." "We don't have coke, sir." "Fine what kind of tea you got?" "Chai, mango, peppermint..." "What about green tea? Do you got green tea?" He asked in that "I guess you probably don't even have that, do you?" tone of voice. "Yes, sir. We do." "Fine then, I guess gimme that. Can't believe this place don't got no coke or nothing."

Honestly, what a jerk. Just because you're a Vet. doesn't mean you can treat people so rudely.
Aren't, when you're in service, you supposed to learn respect?


Well, anyways it's almost Christmas... I'm dreading going to my mums. Everything she does annoys me, no matter what she actually does for me, and I have no idea why... I guess it's because everything this year is so close together, and I'm so stressed, and she keeps making things complicated.

I think I'll do Christmas make-up though.Like, themed. Kind of like my turkey make up.

I also am not able to get my game that I really wanted... I suppose I could get it later, but...
I don't know when I'll have the money,
I'm disappointed...

My 18th Birthday~

Hey, everyone! Guess who?
I'm just here to write about my birthday, and the basic things.
I really wanted to show pictures of the things my friends got me, but I don't have the photos.
So I'll save that for another blog post~!

I also plan on reviewing the people whom made my cake, but that is also for another review.

I know what the date says, but my dad just refuses to set the date on his camera.
Anyways, the reindeer with that bird- that's my Starbucks' Christmas theme~! So happy
that I got this cake, it was delicious.

And again- this time with the candles.

This is a picture of me with some friends and family.
From left to right: Kat, Jade, my mum, Kenny, Jolene (sister) and I.

Look at Kaitlin in the background, just being a good Employee!
Anyways, this is Myself, Sierra, Kat, and Jade.
Poor Jade, she just was so sleepy, hehe~

We were photo-bombed! Jade tried to sneak in, too, that silly Korean~❤
I realize my mouth is unattractive here.

Look at Kat & Genni- being all 'look at me' outside in the cold, haha~!
In Genni's world, everyone dances.

Krysta's giving Jade a halo while she's trying to strangle me,
and Kat's making it look like a show she should be selling tickets to~ haha.

Krysta drew this awesome piccy herself, it's so awesome!
She's a great artist~ yup, yup!

Look at Genni, being all like "what it do!?", hehe.

Genni looks so stuck up in this photo, and Jade looks metal.
Kat, on the other hand, is looking at them like "wtf is wrong with you people?", ahaha.

Fact: I was about to die from the cold.
Fact no.2: I have a cold now.

Yes, that is T-mobile in the background~ haha!

Anyways, those are just the pictures I'm going to share right now~
Things are a bit hectic, so it might be a bit.

Bye bye!

V's Ristorante - Italian Restaurant.

Well, today's my 18th birthday- Well, the night of it.
Anyways, my dad took me out to eat at a restaurant called
" V's Italian Restaurantaka Ristorante~.
I've been here a few times, and I usually order what's called "Manicotti"
which is pretty much Italian Ravioli~

But this time, I decided to order the Fettucini Alfredo for $16.50 U.S.D~
quite expensive, but so worth it.
Anyways, after they take your order, they ask you what you would like to drink,
and then bring you some bread, white & pumpernickel, and a salad.

The Salad, so yummy with the house Italian dressing. It usually comes with onions and a few cherry tomatos to top it off, but me being me, I don't like them, and  put them on my dad's plate. I did, however, have pepper and parmesan cheese put on, and it was so delicious.

This is my tea, the best tea ever (to me). It's peach tea, and it was (I have to say it) very peachyI have it every time, and I would go there just to drink it. They also have other flavours.
In the background you can see the bread & butter they give you~ my dad had already take a slice of the white bread. I usually eat the Pumpernickel, but I was just too full.

This was my main course- My lovely pasta. There was so~o much of it, much more than it actually looks like there is in the picture~  I had to bring it (and my desert) home in a to-go box because I couldn't finish it, haha~! The Pasta was lovely, though~ recommended!

I know you can't see it well, but that desert is the 2nd reason for my existance (because we all know Starbucks is my first). It's the Tiramisu for $4.95~ It's cookies soaked in Espresso, layered with Mascar-pone cheese, chocolate cooki crumb crust, and chocolate syrup- think about it! It was so yummy~♡

Anyways, this is a great restaurant, and I can't wait to go back again.
The service was wonderful- especially, if you go during a less busy time of the day.

Here's a link to their Menu, check it out:

Oh, man! Who is this person who never posts anymore!?
That's right, it is I.

The person who is so upset with half her friends right now,

she can barely find the interest to write anything of any interest to anyone;
including herself.

Anyways, for me right now it is 3:00 in the morning on December 10th, 2010.
What does this mean? It means I am Eighteen-bloody-years old.
That's what it means.

Tomorrow will start out so hectic tomorrow...
I'm going to ask my dad about going to pick the cake up at 8:00, and get it in our fridge.
Then I can get ready for my mum to come over here, and colour my hair as soon as she does,
and then I can dry and style it.

I was actually hoping we'd get to up at the site a bit early, so I can actually get my hair styled at the
Salon; I want to get my hair layered! And thin, I'm starting to have too much hair, and it's giving me a headache, literally~!

If not, I guess I'll just give myself what I call Princess Curls.

Oh, I don't know if I've posted photos of my new Teary Brown lenses yet, but I have some now,
so I'll post them up on my blog now~
I'll warn you though, they look so natural, it will be hard to tell I'm wearing them
if you're not used to seeing my small eyes.

I actually really adore these lenses! They make my eyes look bigger, but without really looking like I'm wearing any at all~! Very natural and princessy, if you ask me. Which is always the look I want to go for, as girly as I am with my looks.

Either that, or a Princess-Doll look, with the white skin and pink rosy cheeks, and lightly dusted pink lips, that's my way, haha! I'm so odd, I know. 
Anyways, a bit through this video I take the lenses out and show you them, and the difference in my eyes, it's pretty cool. I can't say how much I love these lenses.

Check out my video!

Anyways, I'll probably post pictures up of my birthday as soon as it's over, I may even take my laptop over to Starbucks with me so my friends and I can make a quick hello video! 

That's about it, bye for now~!

Oh, my.

It's been a while since my last post, and I don't have much to post about now,
but I really need to right now- I haven't abandoned the internet completely, hehe~

Anyways, this weekend is my birthday, so things are so stressful.
My mum ordered my cake, it was like $60.00 for a full sheet cake.
It's got "Happy 18th Rin" on it with the Starbucks Christmas Reindeer on it-
so cute. I'm excited, it's very Starbucks themed- for my Starbucks-based birthday!
I'm really thankful that I get to have it there free-of-charge, most places would have made me
pay so much money that I really don't have.

Anyways, here's a picture I drew online of the cake, best I could do:

The trim around it is going to be green and red, and minus the trim around the top.
Very Christmas and Starbucks-y, non? I'm excited.
Of course, everyone going has to buy a drink (themselves) but that's not the point~


My Naka plans are so messed up right now.

I don't have time to go into details now, but you bet I'll blog about it after I go
up to Starbucks tomorrow. Ughh.

Bye Bye!

Old Dolls

Today I received some old dolls from a relative.
They're actually pretty cute, not like the creepy dolls I'm used to getting.
One of them, I know, is from Okinawa (おきなわ人形) and I'm pretty sure she's from the late 1940's to the early 1950's from what I could learn online.

Anyways, here are pictures of the dolls~

This one is my favourite, it's a shame it wasn't properly taken care of.
Her hand is missing, I had to glue her hair to her head, she has something sticking out form her stomach (I hid it in the picture) and under her Kimono, one of her legs is broken.

This is the one from Okinawa. If you look at the bottom closely, here in the pic,
you might be able to make out the words (in Japanese) "okinawa ningyou" which means "Okinawa doll". I was told it was made after the war.

I couldn't tell you anything about this one,
other than it looks high enough classed, and it has fairly good condition.

 This is a group shot of them. Is it me, or do the center and left dolls look like
their doing a common, everyday, American hand touch? Like they're saying "what's up dude!?",

Here's a different angle.

Not sure if they're worth much or not, but they're really cute, I think.
Not that I'd sell them eve if they were worth anything.

Anyways, just thought I'd share that with you.

Creepy Make-up and Money Issues

Well, this week has been quite a week already.
Starting today my dad no longer receives money on me from the government, so I'm
thankful for every day from today that we have internet, I wont be able to
get it very much longer, I'm sure. My cellphone included.
It's also why I'm grateful to everyone who comments and views my blog,
I seriously appreciate it in more ways than I can think to say.

Anyways, I decided to do some creepy make-up for my friend Sodie.
It would have turned out better, but I had no black make up.
All, well.

I guess it could have been worse, but still.
What do you guys think? Creepy enough? I hope to redo it with the make-up kit

I'm getting for Christmas. My mum knows I know, but she's still making me wait until Christmas to actually get it. Kind of silly, non?

Anyways, my money issues have doubled, if not tripled today alone.
I'll write out the entire thing, so as to communicate exactly how much annoyance this has caused.

Starting last February 2010, I invited my friend Sierra to her first year at Naka-kon. I guess she had fun enough, because we started planning for her second year, to get a room with a few other friends, and split the bill. In total, this year, it came to $36 for the 7 of us. For a while, things were nicely planned out, and all was well. Until my dad decided we were going to move. The trouble started with this, and I should have taken it as a sign, even when we decided not to.

Anyways, after I was told we were going to move, I started tying up loose ends so people that were going still could still go without having the price raised on them.
So I got the other main person that was going (Alice) in contact with Sierra, so they could talk and make the plans for Naka-kon, and keep everything put together.

And for me, I finally had everything tied off, and it was over for me.

And then, I found out we weren't moving after all. What's that mean?
That I have to untie and retie all the ends that I had previously done, so I could rework myself back into the Naka-kon plan. It wasn't a big deal but I had to let everyone know, and factor in my budget once again the price of going and eating.

Anyways, a few weeks later, Sierra's mum deicdes that we can't use her credit card to hold the room, and we need to find a way to get it otherwise.
So my friend Alice decided we could use her credit card to get the room,
and Sierra's mum agreed to be there as back-up in case Alice couldn't use her card,
and it was all going well.

Then our fried Jacob decided he might go with his other friends instead of us,
which would raise the budget to something I couldn't afford, so I'd have to drop out, making it raise to something other people people couldn't afford, and so on.

So my mum stepped in, and said she would pay Jacobs amount for the room, and we could all still go, and it'd be fine. Great! We're all set, and we don't have to worry now!
Then Sierra talked to the other people. Angelo wouldn't have his money in time, and Steven might not even be able to go at all! What the- when did all this start to surface!?

Sierra decided she could cover Angelo's half with his word he'd pay her back.
But Steven- he couldn't do so. So we had to go off to search for another person to take Stevens place, or we couldn't go due to pricing- again.

Anyways, we found my friend Patrick to go, and once again, everything was seemingly fine.

Oh, but-- what's this now? Now, my friend Alice is backing out. She's going to go with her Anime club (or something like that), and stay with them. I've been texting her all week, and had done so today as well- why am I just now finding this out from her, when I had to post on her facebook wall? I'd like to know why she couldn't have told me when I had money to make it up.
This really screwed things up now.

My friend Krysta, who's only 13, said she'll pay half of the $36 to stay in our room with us, and I can pay the other half (because I originally wasn't going to charge her anything at all).
And then we told Sierra's mum that Alice backed out, and we needed to use her mum's credit card to rent our room for the weekend.

Oh, but then, her mum gets so angry, and decided she's not letting us use her card.
Why? because we might trash the room, and she doesn't want it to be her fault.
She trusts us, but she knows nothing about the other girls.

My dad has not only met the girls, but their parents, and her mum refuses to talk to my dad about either of them, to convince them that they (we) wont trash the room.
Why would we do that, anyways?

Oh, I forgot. Because we're kids, and we've got nothing better to do than to spend $50.00 on a badge to a convention we're only pretending to go to, so we can spend 3 days trashing the hotel room, to ruin her mums' credibility.

That must be it, right? Of course it is, that's our plan.

We're currently trying to figure something out.
With or without Sierra and the others, I'm going to Naka, I just wanted it to be with my friends.
