Comment to be added!

It'd also be awesome if you could leave me a note here if you got a new LJ or renamed. If you don't, it's all good. :D

We're all kind of caught between detachment, worry, and a strange sense of safety. I'm in Osaka, very far from the epicenter and surrounded by mountains, so there isn't really a threat of tsunamis here. We felt the earthquake, but that was about it. We kinda torture ourselves by discussing where we might be taken if they evacuate us.

Another one is predicted for my area in 3 days, but I don't have any solid reliable information on this other than like...quakeprediction.com so yeah.

Everyone that I know in Tokyo and other Northern parts of Japan is safe, but they are still trying to reach entire towns. People are worried about the Fukushima nuclear reactor, but I personally believe that it's safe. Fukushima has well designed underground containment and they surrounding areas have been evacuated.

I have been doing some research on the 1995 Hanshin (Hanshin being the combination of the names for Kobe and Osaka in kanji) earthquake since we are very close to Kobe and I just visited. It was only a 6.8, but there was great devastation in Kobe. This most recent quake was much, much stronger.

A lot of my friends and I were planning on heading up to Tokyo next week for our spring break. Now I think we're stuck in Osaka. Oy.

I debated making this entry public because just putting this out there for everyone to see might be immature, but fuck it. If everyone else can be immature, I can at least be momentarily childish in order to tell other people what's up.

I am extremely sick of crazy, attention craving, childish, ungrateful bitches. I would have tolerated this behavior at any other time in life, but now I am in college, and I have bigger fish to fry. There is no excuse to be a passive aggressive bitch at this point in your life, so please stop. How many people post on your Facebook does not validate you. Knowing more people than others does not validate you, and those things certainly do not balance our your insane behavior that instantly drives people away. Yeah, this is kinda vague, but whatever. So I'm just going to distance myself from the crazies from now on. Don't point fingers at others when the problems are clearly yours.

Basically:
And I don't even like that song.

I'm going to follow this with an actual entry, haha.

I've been advertising this site a bit, but I figured a TON of you guys are trying to learn foreign languages, and this site is amaaaazing so far. It's called Lang-8. http://lang-8.com Basically, you post entries in whatever language you are learning, and people will correct it. Then you can return the favor by correcting other people's entries in your ~native tongue~ That's my favorite part, lol. I think this site started in Japan, so there are a ton of Japanese people, so this is especially advantageous if you are learning Japanese, but there are also a lot of Chinese and Korean speakers. Soooo

http://lang-8.com

And then add me and let's get speaking~

I just want to say if you want to remove me as a friend on here, go ahead and do so now! I completely understand because I haven't been extremely active/commenting a lot on entries. No hard feelings of course. Comments are screened if you want to say something.

I'm trying to work my way back into LJ after being so busy, and I think cleaning up my friends list will help, so I'm doing a reverse now, then a cut later.


So, I hope you're all doing well! I'm getting sick (sore throat, runny nose), so you should all stay healthy! ALSO, I GOT A JOB. Gotta get that moneyyyyy.

Do you ever have those terrible times where you can't imagine things getting worse, then the next day you wake up and everything is absolutely perfect? I love those days.


This should be interesting too. Go for it.
