Intro Post~!

Hey everyone! So I've FINALLY gotten around to writing an intro post =D


Name: Sara
Age: 22
Location: Virginia


Basic Facts:
  • I studied in Osaka for one month last summer, then went back to the same school for Spring semester this year. I love Osaka and its people beyond words~♥
  • I met Akanishi Jin at a club in Namba. I honestly believe it was destiny (and not in an "omg I'm gonna marry him!!11one" sort of way, but rather in a "Everything fell together way too well for it not to have been fated". And it was the highlight of my entire year~♥!!!
  • I've recently fallen in love with the Kansai Juniors, so please excuse my excessive inchoherent flail over them.
  • I go through serious KAT-TUN concert withdrawals sometimes xD
  • Morning Musume led me to JE.
  • First got into JE in August of 2005 when I downloaded Arashi's "One" album.
  • I instantly fell in love with K8, KAT-TUN, the juniors and Tackey and Tsubasa after I discovered Arashi, but it took me almost half a year to finally grow to like NEWS.
  • I speak Arabic, English and Japanese
  • I studied French for 5 years but have forgotten all of it now.
  • I don't like Kpop as much as I used to. The only group I'm still in love with is DBSK.
  • I honestly love ALL of Johnny's boys except for Hina
  • When I watch JE DVDs by myself, I comment and squee and reply back to the boys in Japanese xD
  • If I'm ever feeling down, there's nothing that can cheer me up like watching my favorite JE groups' shows or concerts.
  • Besides JE, I love listening to Tohoshinki, Kobukuro, Remioromen, Otsuka Ai, Koike Teppei/WaT, Morning Musume, Versailles and Enka.
  • English artists I enjoy include: Justin Timberlake, The Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna, Rooney, Metallica, Coldplay, and Queen.
  • American shows I enjoy: Lost, ANTM, Friends, That 70s Show, and The Nanny.
  • I also love Arabic music; my favorites include Nancy Ajram, Amr Diab, and Sherine.
  • I bellydance
  • If I could marry any guy it would be either Kame, MatsuJun, or Miura Haruma xD
  • I spent almost all of my money on concerts when I was in Japan xDDD

I'm sorry! I'm sorry! It's not like I hate him or anything... he just... annoys me sometimes. 'Cause he's too loud. *cries*

Hii~ *waves*
Oh you should definitely try to see a band you like when you have the chance. Concert-going is one of the things I love to do most♥ And there's nothing like a live experience when you really like a band~

Sure! I'll add you right now :)
Yayyy a KAT-TUN fan~! They are my favoritest♥ </strike>Although NEWS always comes over and squeezes in with them at the #1 spot xD</strike> And I can't believe how lucky I got in running into him♥!! I'll never forget it~

I really want to see a concert, but it's just always the wrong time, ya know? Or I can't scrape the money. Bahah. Because I'm broke.

Why don't you like Kpop that much anymore??? ): Me is sad because I live for Kpop (& Jpop).

I love Osaka! I lived in Japan for a year (in Ishikawa) after college and Osaka/Nara/the Kansai in general were my favorite places to visit. :3

Also, you got to see Tegomasu, Puzzle, Kagotsurube and Tough Weeds? I'm so jealous. XD

Yay Kanju! ♥

Uwaaaa, really? That's so awesome! Were you teaching there? If you don't mind me asking xD

Yeah, I honestly think the Kansai region is the best. The people are so warm and friendly, and just the whole atmosphere is so nice ♥ And beauty-wise... Kyoto is my favorite♥ LOVE IT.

Yessss, and I'm sooo glad I made the decision to buy tickets to those! Even though I'm now broke xDDD still kicking myself for not going to see "Romeo and Juliet" though :(

It. Was. AMAZING. I've never been so touched by a live performance in my life. I cried and I cried, and I'm not even a big L'arc fan >.<;;

That Hyde... he has the most amazing voice in the world~ *_*

KANJU ♥

LOL, you're braver than me, I don't know if I would have gone to any of the Miura butai shows, I hate historical things xDDDD

poor Hina xDDD<%strike>

Oct. 20th, 2009 12:48 am (UTC)
KANJUUUUUUUUUU♥

Haha but the funny thing is... it wasn't historical AT ALL. It was all CRACK. It was all over the place xDDD but he was so beautiful *__________*

I have plenty of things to say so it's gonna be long.

Anyways, I read some of your concert entries as well as your encounter with Jin. That's so cool that you got to see Jin randomly at a club. I'd be dying if that was me spotting Jin. XD

Oddly enough I got into Kpop first, DBSK being my first loves, before JE. DBSK in a way got me to discover JE. It was through a fanvid and the rest is history. I totally understand when it comes to not getting into Kpop as much as I used to.

Although I have a soft spot for Tegomass plus Koyama and Uchi (and I'm all for 8-nin for both NEWS and Kanjani8), I still can't get into them as much.

My first JE loves were Kat-tun followed by Kanjani8, Arashi, B.A.D., BOYS, Kanjuu, Kis-My-FT2, ABC-Z, and loads more. Kanjani8 led me to B.A.D., BOYS and the rest of Kanjuu.

Miura Haruma is &hearts! Gotta than Gokusen 3 for that!

Wow! That's a lot of concerts, well in Japan. I'd love to at least catch a JE concert or more. Hopefully someday I can go.
I thought of buying Tough Weeds shop photos, but back then money was tight. Hopefully I can scrap and find em' though Yahoo Auctions.

I studied French for 2 years and my French is still so rusty. :/

Is Versailles the only Jrock group you like or are there others? Just wondering. Versailles is amazing. I'm still sad and shocked over the death of Jasmine You. T-T

Well, that's all I could think of at the moment. Lastly, I made an intro post as well, here. It has a bit more info. on me. ^^

Anyways, thanx a lot and I'll ttyl! :D

I like long!!♥

Hahaha, and JE led me to DBSK! xD Funny how they all lead to each other, lol.

Aww really? Now I LOVE them like crazy they always battle it out with KAT-TUN for my "favorite band" position, LOL But back then I really wasn't into their music and I just couldn't understand why everyone loved them so much. But then one day... it was like I got hit with a rock in the head and it suddenly CLICKED and I loved them xDD It makes no sense.

Wowow really? Mine went like this: Arashi, Kanjani8, KAT-TUN, ABC, Question?, Tackey&Tsubasa, NEWS, Kinki Kids, etc xDD

YES. And I think I like him best in Gokusen♥ That bad-boy attitude and those blonde streaks are so sexy ♥.♥

You know, I NEVER thought I'd be able to see any of them live, and look how it turned out for me! So I bet that one day you'll be able to see them too♥

My friend is COMPLETELY gone T___T Every time I try to speak French, only Japanese comes out *cries*

Oh hehe, no I like other groups too; but not very many. I love MUCC, Miyavi, D'espaires Ray, and DaizyStripper. But I guess Versailles is my all-time favorite? (second would probably be MUCC). I was lucky enough to see them last year when they performed at an Anime convention here, and my friends and I got to meet them and get their autographs. They were so awesome and nice, and by the end of it, we were all in love with Jasmine You for his absolute sweetness and adorableness (he saw my friend dancing from far away while he was signing autographs and just randomly joined us, imitating the dance moves, from his seat. He was the best!!). So yeah, we were all so devastated by his death T___T I still can't 100% believe it >.<


Wheeeeee okay, I'm gonna go read your intro post now~~~ =D

♥!!

HI! Thanks for the comment! :)

I also studied japanese in university, but I've been learning it for 4 years now :) I'm a senior now, but I don't take Japanese anymore (as I got credit for all the courses when I studied abroad)

Oh you are Turk?? That's very cool! I'm from Iraq, actually, so we are kind of like neighbors!! haha

Anyway, yeah I know quite a bit of kansaiben. It is my favorite dialect EVER. I especially love it when boys speak in Kansaiben. I think it's so otokomae♥
Anyway, I'll be happy to teach you or answer any questions you have! ^_^

Btw, I'm sorry that I can't write in Japanese at the moment. My computer recently got a virus, and after I reformatted it, it's not letting me use Japanese anymore xD It's VERY annoying, but I"m working on fixing it.

Anyway, feel free to add me :)
