So I'm very late compared to everyone else, but it is still the first day of the year, so XP Happy New Year's everyone! I hope it's starting out fabulously for you all ♥

Obligatory New Year's Meme of some kind XD )

So that was last year, here's to next year! Starting with some resolutions for me to keep track of. Call me old fashioned even if I do know I don't keep them - they are more like things to work toward anyway, right? Right.

  • Artz!

  • Even just drawing more. Seriously, why should this be hard? My sister has far since surpassed me, I need to get back to practicing more often. I want to tweak my style so it's more... unique or has different flavor to it, but we'll see. Just drawing more in general would be good. But I also wouldn't mind doing some other art projects and such. We'll see what happens I guess. At least the drawing more often bit though, geez.
  • Clean up the bedroom

  • This is just sad, I know, but our room is still not fully unpacked from moving in here.
  • Get things on the walls of this house damnit!

  • We have way too many posters to not be putting shit up. I've just been lazy and hesitating about whether or not we are painting, but you know what? If we do, I'll just take stuff down. Good grief, self, it's not that hard.
  • Post more often

  • Yeah, I don't post on LJ enough for some people and I agree, but I am doing better than I did the year before last, so there XP~ I still could do better, but eh, we'll see. Oh and I may actually tag stuff, that's another we'll see XD;
  • Money Stuffs

  • Haha, doesn't that sound broad? Basically now that I'm making a little more than I used to, I really should be putting some into some sort of savings. Also, need to get on that whole combining accounts with [ profile] kaitou_marina.
  • Cosplay

  • I want to get back into doing this and have a bigger part in contributing. Try/practice sewing more myself even. I think that's pretty self-explanatory, yes?
  • Photos

  • So I have a camera and I've taken tons of photos with it and I like never do anything with any of them. So I'd like to change that. Post them or print some of them or something. Mm. Kind of wishing I hadn't resized so many of them I've already taken and put on the computer at least. Should have just left them and stored them on a thumbdrive or something. Ah well.

I haven't posted in a while either about just stuff, but I'll do an update on life or whatever later. We're planning on going to see Sherlock Holmes today, possibly as a whole household *gaspshock!* Laters!

Edit: The fish is now named! My betta is named Kufadis after the Abh lieutenant of Spoor in Crest of the Stars. That poor poor man ♥
chiba_yuriko: (Mokona - Snokona!)
So I'm still working on that vacation post which will have some pictures (which is why it's still be worked on Note to self: get stuff off the damn camera more often. Preferably before it has almost 500 pics to be downloaded, resized, saved x.x). BUT I do have a picture of our tree which [ profile] kaitou_marina wanted to share, so here it is!

Cute tree is cute! )

OH, btw, people who requested a card, that IS still coming. I did not forget or flake, I just... am a little late. XD They should be in the mail on Monday!

*sigh* Still no word about my phone though... ;.;
chiba_yuriko: (Fai - I Can Sparkle Too!)
At So You Think You Can Dance Live Tour 2009! Woooooooooooooo! *flails*
chiba_yuriko: (Mokona - Snokona!)
So I know I said before that a real post would be coming and, well, it is, but not right now XD; NaNo really has been kicking my ass and I'm just like @.@ basically.


I wanted to get this out there. I never do this and always want to, so let's try this out. So I'll be a sheep, just not the meme kind this time. XD


Who wants something sent to them?

Comments will be screened for safety so just leave a name and address that I can send a card too and I'll be a happy foxy!

Now, back to writing x.X
chiba_yuriko: (Syaoran - What to Write)
So, kinda too tired to post up an actual post-post (I have a few memes I HAVE done and just not posted >.> Yes, I happen to be THAT lazy), but I wanted to get a quick bit out about NaNoWriMo!

So, as I mentioned before I'm doing that crazy thing again this year, so wish me lots of luck. Going to take semi-hiatuses at RP for the month (I definitely don't want to do full ones, that's for sure) and just try to write, write, write. Hopefully I'll do better than last year. I loved that story idea to bits and went really far ahead of the actual writing of it in my head, but... well... ah well. Maybe another time I'll pick it up and try again. Who knows?

This year however, I am doing FIC. Tsubasa fic to be exact! Doing it post-series though, so if anyone hasn't caught up and doesn't want to be spoiled, probably best to not read it until that changes XD;

It's going to be posted up as I go at [ profile] haruhi_ism, so feel free to read along! Mari is posting her's there too since it's a shared writing comm for both of us, so read her's too! The first part of mine, Beyond the Moonlit Pass (I suuuuuuck at titles, I know), is here specifically.

That's it for now, real post to come in the next few days I hope ^.^
chiba_yuriko: (Watanuki - Oh the Insanity)
Wow, it's been a mixed last bit of time, I'm not even sure where to begin.

Well, let's do the good news, per se, first XD )
The bad stuff XP )

And some mixed emotions for good measure XD; )

And ummm I think that's everything!

Oh yeah! I did the first section of that art meme, it's been done a few days actually, but I haven't started on the multiples section, so that's next... I wonder if I should just scan the first part though and post it in the meantime. Hmmmm....
chiba_yuriko: (Syaoran - What to Write)
Wow, that was not easy XD; I had to pick 8 of my favorite characters and put them in order from most favorite and down. I had way more than 8 to put on that list man >.> I'm sad certain people didn't make it on there even. I'm such a weirdo XD;

Anyway! Now I have my people picked out. Now the task ahead of me is to actually do the meme! I doubt I'll do the whole thing, but I'll try to do as much of it as I can before I completely lose interest and/or get too frustrated XD;

The final cut for those who are curious (this is before mixing them up for the meme):

1. Kurogane
2. Watanuki
3. Maguri
4. Fay
5. Kamui
6. Alphonse
7. Himawari
8. Tsuzuki

So many people left off! I had enough for like an entire other list and plus some! Why are there no girls on there?! I swear Himawari and Nia were on that list too (and Maora, does that count >.>?) but they just didn't beat out those guys! And and, no Ed or Fay cause I was trying to keep it to one person per series! TT__TT Screw it! *changes list to include Himawari and Fay >O* Those are my two favorite series anyway so they can have two people from them XD; Wait, why are there THREE smiley smiley-not-as-happy-as-they-act people on that list?!

Anyway, yeah, there you have it. Wish me luck people. Mostly in just actually STARTING the damn thing XD;;; I haven't drawn in way too freaking long!

Edit: Okay, I just wrote out all the things I'll have to draw after putting in the names because I don't have a tablet to do it on the computer, so I'll have to print it out for my sketchbook and... oh... oh my god. XDDDDDDD;;;;; I'm not sure if I'll be able to do all of those!!!!! I'm sorry Kuroganeeeee!!
chiba_yuriko: (Nokoru-Suoh - Dun Wanna Work)
Omg, I do like my job and all but I do not want to be here today.

Scratch that, this week. It's going to be insane and it isn't even the first week of the quarter yet.


I just want to go home and flail and fangirl and freak out about Tsubasa and Holic damnit!

Edit: Well, I still would rather be home fangirling, but work isn't so bad. I just had a talk during lunch with one of the other ladies in the office who's from Japan about the Shinto shrine and Aki Matsuri and Buddhist temples and going to visit there and stuff. It was kind of awesome XD
chiba_yuriko: (Itsuki - Consideration)
Sure, why not? I haven't done a meme in a while!

Stolen from [ profile] shiruru

1. Why I decided to play this character
2. My favorite scene or bit of interaction concerning this character to date
3. My favorite aspect about this character
4. The last thing they did "off screen"
5. What their last words would be if they died tomorrow
6. What the next thing I'm doing for them is (narrative, post, shelving, whatever)
7. I will tell you what character of yours I'd like to play mine against
8. You may ask the character or me as many free questions as you want, always :)

[ profile] memento_eden: Kurogane (Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle), Kunogi Himawari (xxxHOLiC), Tsujimiya Maguri (Shinshi Doumei Cross)
[ profile] quovadis_rp: Ashura Mahyah (RG Veda)

And taking a page from Shiru's book again, why the hell not - anyone I've dropped (I think this is just Tsuzuki and Chrono at ME at this point) or played in my musebox [ profile] sul_box so far.


Snagged this one from [ profile] m_a_foxfire

Ask any of my RP characters a question and I'll reply in-character as them with an answer. Ask anything, regardless of whether you know their canon or not. Also, feel free to ask them IC yourself. Can be asked of anyone on the Yuri's muses musebox list
chiba_yuriko: (Oden Kitsune - Cherish)
Pretty much right now I think the world sucks. But that's just the stress talking. (^.^)

SO, setting that aside, stupid things will brighten my day just a little sometimes.

I have been told I must share one of those right now.


That right there is a Mugestu emoticon. ♥ Isn't it cuuuute?

And I dunno if I shared my fox ones before but if you see ^..^/) in my journal or some variation there of? That's a little fox. See, it has pointy up ears and some peeking eyes and a little fluffed up tail.

Anyway, now it's back to work with me (which is one of the few things not stressing me out, go figure (-_-;)).
chiba_yuriko: (HimaxWata - Different Pages)
So I have a bit of a backlog of memes, let's take care of that first.

Clickies clickies? )

Okay, did my memes. And I am alive as I mentioned previously. A little less "kinda" than before even. XD It's just been insane with the heat and working and moving and now with settling. I mean, craaaaaazy. But hopefully I can get back into some sense of routine. Get back to the RP with everyone (not just Kuro >.>), settle into the new RP, maybe draw a little eventually? I've been dying to draw for sooo long now but always keep myself due to knowing there are other things I should be doing first/instead. SOON, damnit, SOON! Oh yes and there are a ton of characters I want to musebox. Used some spare brain power while moving/packing to think up usernames for them and snag 'em, though I still have a few left to think of. Pretty pleased with some of them. Now I have to set up the journals and actually... use them. Test the boys out. Go figure, all boys again. Huh. But on that list are Black*Star, Shiba Reiichirou (Zombie-Loan), Itsuki Koizumi, Roy Mustang and Kouno Tohru (Princess Princess) and one of the kirin from Twelve Kingdoms, but I'm not sure what one yet XD; Probably Taiki unless the third (and last T.T) translated book has more on one of the other two I'm thinking of (Keiki and Enki) since you get the most development and insight to Taiki in the first three books. Plus he's just so gosh-darn adorable! [ profile] yumesan, now that I've gotten to read the book he's in, you were just perfect as him at Mukashi, seriously ♥

SO, speaking of MUSEBOXES! I kind of realized I don't know who all has them and what ones people wouldn't mind my watching and poking them in? So if anyone here has a musebox that they wouldn't mind my playing with their characters, link me pretty please? And anyone is free to poke any of my characters! I'm not sure how it works at most, but I'm going to put up general posts for them all once I'm finished setting up the new ones so anyone can poke them at random and then you know, do random situation posts from time to time. Edit: Helps to link my own, doesn't it? Screwed Up Little Box XD Shared between [ profile] kaitou_marina and I.

And in other RP news, LOVING playing Ashura at QV though playing him in an AU setting right off the bat makes me a little nervous, but only a little. Seriously. XD And must go breathe life into ME by throwing myself back in there to play with everyone. o.0 Dude where the hell has everyone been (that hasn't dropped T.T)? I know tons of people were on hiatus, me included, but maaaaaaaaan. Hopefully some people start to filter back soon.

Hmm, how's life been, you ask? Stop rambling about RP, you say? Well I kind of said already, didn't I XP~ I'm just hoping to settle down and get back to this stuff I won't stop going on about. And maybe have time to draw. And read manga. And watch anime. Both of which I'm sooooorely behind on. (At least we finally finished Endless Eight XD; Lol, Kyon, you suck ♥ )

And hey maybe even play a game or two from time to time.

Man I want my freetime back, moving! *shakes fist at it* CURSE YOU. At least it's a house~ (even if that means having to paint stuff... gaaaaaaaaah @.@)

On another completely random note, I want to go through and take out/add some icons again. Un!
chiba_yuriko: (Kuro - Laugh at j00)
It liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiives~~!

Kinda anyway.

Memes and update and babblings later. For now, I should so be in bed so I don't just die at work tomorrow. XD;;
chiba_yuriko: (Kuro - Yay)
♥ Happy Birthday, [ profile] exdream1999! Look, because of the time difference you get wished it two days in a row. Sweet deal, huh? XD Hope your yesterday was good for ya! ♥
chiba_yuriko: (Syaoran - What to Write)
Ganked from [ profile] minako134

❶ Choose an episode of anime or television series you have on your computer. Make sure you're certain you want that one, you cannot change your mind. DO NOT TELL YOUR FLIST WHAT YOU CHOSE.
❷ Make note of how long the episode is here -> 23:29
❸ Ask your f-list to choose a time between 00:00 and whatever the length of your episode is. Be specific, (ie: 19:11, 21:09, 02:42)
❹ Make them an icon using THAT FRAME ONLY no matter what it is. And remember, you can only use that ONE episode you chose previous, even if the person posting isn't familiar with it.

Hit me with it! This looks like fun! ^_______^ I have a feeling like no one has seen this show though (which I wouldn't blame them, it isn't that good XD;;;;; )

As for life, uhhhh, well Mari and I are trying to find a house to rent with a certain sheep ♥ I really hope we can find something, I would so love to live in a house. Plus, if we can get a house I finally get to pick out a kitten to join the other kitties! Plus plus, hoooouse~~ XD

In other news, my better job that is only part time? May become full-time. Which would mean being able to get rid of the other not so good job. XP You have no idea how hard I'm hoping this goes through and it could as soon as July if things work out the way my immediate boss and I want. *.* Wish me luck?

Oh, btw, [ profile] arivess and [ profile] kurosakihisoka, I haven't forgotten your guys' pictures, I swear. Still plan on doing them! XD There are sooo many things I want to draw, especially lately. For a while I was in one of those art funk things, but I think my inspiration is coming back ^__^ I'll have to make use of it while it's around, heh.

Hmmm any other news is like, all RP related. XD; I finally got Maguri's app done. DEAR GOD. And I swear it isn't as long as it looks ;.; It's 11 comments, but they aren't full comments, they aren't! ^^;;; Lol, I'm really bad at summarizing, what can I say? Especially when I've been reviewing the canon for it anyway. I'm thinking I'm also going to pick Himawari back up too.... I really miss playing her. I think I could move her out of her sad funk too after having lost a good chunk of her friends all at around the same time. And come on, walking in-game event >D (Though if I do bring her back I sure hope more people make use of that from time to time, ya know? Wasted potential makes kitsune cry *nods wisely* )

Oh yeaaah, cosplay and con. XD Those are coming up. AE is early-mid June and I have to get the finishing touches on the Mahou Tsukai Tai costumes done that weren't done before that I can actually do myself. The rest I leave in the capable hands of Kakumei-peeps. I'm really looking forward to it even if I somehow think I was an odd choice for Aburatsubo. I love him, so it's okay! (Speaking of which, I think that somehow at Sakura-Con, Ayame convinced me to cosplay Kurogane. Wtf, how did that happen? But it'd probably be kid!Kuro, like from some of the splash pages though. Gotta remember to ask for the contact info for her wig-commissioner extraordinaire since that Vash wig was almost exactly what I'd need for Kurogane XD)

And a couple of the Canadians are coming down for a concert soon too, so we get a mini-visit! And then Chris and Sora's wedding is next month! And the mid-year purification at the shrine. Dude, I guess a lot of stuff is coming up. @.@

I could probably ramble a whole shit ton more now that I've started, but that's always the case, so I'll stop there. XD (I have to be up WAY too early tomorrow and was up WAY too early this morning to be this awake right now XP )
chiba_yuriko: (KuroxFai - Come Again)

The How's My Driving? Meme

A post with like life stuff is coming soon, but for now, I'm really curious. If anyone has anything to give me, please please do.
chiba_yuriko: (Maguri - Grinning in the Stars)
Gaaah, why is writing background for a shoujo SCHOOL drama so hard? *boots application* Seriously, you wouldn't THINK it'd be hard, but it's so tedious. XD;; *boots Maguri himself for good measure*

Annnd, I really have nothing constructive to say at the moment. I dun wanna go to work in a little bit that's for sure, but ah well, can't really be helped. Yeah, that's not constructive or informative or even interesting either, sorry. XD

Mostly just posting to get a few memes up. *loser*

And this is from a while ago, but I was touched that people put me on their's, so here is mine:

Pick 10 people and give them the "you make my day award". If you're picked, you are charged with picking 10 of your own. So if your name was chosen... come on down! You're the next contestant on the make my day meme. In no special order!

1. [ profile] kaitou_marina
2. [ profile] kyoukosama
3. [ profile] arivess
4. [ profile] minako134
5. [ profile] kurosakihisoka
6. [ profile] exdream1999
7. [ profile] xian_pu
8. [ profile] innate
9. [ profile] kurikara_ryuoh
10. I do cheat XP Everyone else on my flist. HA. I wouldn't read your journals if I didn't want to, so you all make my day. ^___^

And another:

Will sketch for the first five people who comment with their request. The catch is that you must put this up in your journal as well. If you absolutely do not draw, write something, etc.

Please? I need to draw more often, seriously. ^^;
chiba_yuriko: (SakuraxSyaoran - Pure Love)
So I didn't do this meme the first time it went around my flist because almost all of my major OTPs I share with Mari and well yeah, she'd just done it. However, seeing it go around again with all the new friends around made me change my mind. I'm gonna do it! BUT, I didn't really use my main fandoms or if I did, I didn't necessarily do my #1 OTP, but all of these are pairings I really like regardless (and at least one of them is really obscure). Sooo, uhh, have at it!

► Pick up to 15 OTPs.
► Describe them in less than (or equal to) 15 words.
► Have your flist guess the OTP.
► ????

If someone says that you can eat them, that means they love you, right? Right? )
chiba_yuriko: (Fai - You Don't Say)
So I did something a bit random tonight - I finally caved and made a musebox. XD; It's [ profile] sul_box and I'll be sharing it with [ profile] kaitou_marina as well. Umm, if anyone is interested, feel free to comment or play there, I'd be beyond thrilled if anyone did.

Other than just to goof off with, I also plan to use this to test some characters out, though I'm kind of testing them before I get them journals, which from what I've gathered is not the usual process... ^.^; But meh, it's our musebox *shrugs* I'll do what I want XD

Oh and Kyou-chan? I'll probably be making a journal for Keioh for our RP and he'll be there too. ♥

Uhhhh, that's all.
chiba_yuriko: (Michiru - Winter's Day)
First off, I just want to say thank you for the all the concerned comments and well-wishes from my last post (which yeah, I realize was a little while ago - I started writing this post the next day, but uhh it didn't get done until now >.>; ). Basically what had happened was that day had gotten off to a very shitty start, but thankfully it didn't really get any worse from there. As for what was wrong? It was a bunch of little things coupled with losing a ring that held a lot of sentimental value to me. I was... really upset (it still feels funny for it to not be on my finger). But even though I worked both jobs that day, nothing else went really wrong after like, noon, so I was okay. But I really appreciate everyone's concern. I loves you all ♥ ♥

Cut to save my poor flist due to my rambling about what's been up in life lately XD; )

And now that I've rambled a whole lot, I think I'll end there and either work on Maguri app (which requires finishing my re-read of Shinshi Doumei Cross), clean up various user infos (lord knows, my personal journal needs it >.> ), color a splash page I printed out (yes, like a coloring book, shhh XP), or work on learning the Thriller dance some more. I haven't had a day off in so long, I'm not sure what to do with it XD I guess it'll probably be some combo of the above.

EDIT: [ profile] kyoukosama! I POSTED. YEAH, THERE. GO LOOK. *bounces*
chiba_yuriko: (Nakaru - Loveless)
God, I can only hope today doesn't get any worse.

I just want this day to be over and it's only 11:15.........
