Hello to the people who are reading this. This is Emily. It's been a long time since I've updated this particular blog, so my apologies. Summertime is always a hectic season for me, so it's really refreshing. All the other seasons go by really slowly, but so much happens in the summer months that sometimes it's hard to keep up with everything. This Saturday I'm going to my Dad's house, and I'm really excited about it. It's tons of fun to spend the 4th of July up north, because the weather there is a little bit cool and the scenery is so nice... Oddly enough, my dad lives by some apple orchards and they're beautiful to look at... Too bad they have no apples until Autumn... Anyway, it's nice to go home and see my family.
Also, there's a YouTube gathering in NYC on 7/7... I MIGHT go, but I'm not sure. It might be a complete waste of time, for all I know. I'm not sure who's going, but MGM is going and I'm friends with him. Haha. So yeah, things are kind of unsure. I AM sure that I'm going to Japan in the end of July, though, and I'm more than excited about that. I know a few other people online who are also going in the end of July, so it's kind of funny... I guess August is a big vacation month, right? I'm not sure exactly WHERE to go in Japan, but I'm going to go to Tokyo Disney Sea for sure. Speaking of Japan, I really need to save up some money before I go... Going overseas costs a lot, you know? But it's totally worth it, I'd imagine. I've never been overseas yet...Haha.
Well, I apologize for my lack of updates. I'll try to be more consistent from now on!

|of friends and dreams.
I always seem to forget that I have a LiveJournal, because I'm much more into my Japanese blog
, to be quite honest. Haha. With the Japanese site, the more views your diary gets the better your ranking is.. I'm the 115th most viewed diary out of over 1 million. I think it's pretty funny. I mean, it doesn't really count towards anything, but it's still pretty fun. And you get little points that you can use to buy things in their shop, I think. I'm not sure how it all works out, but whatever.
In any case, I ended up not going to the beach because my friend Madi got in trouble! Bad Madi! But it was cloudy on Saturday anyway, so no huge loss. I hope we can hang out once you're un-grounded, Madison... How much I miss you! My friend Matthew is coming back from Shanghai on Wednesday I think, so I want to hang out with him sometime soon... We like to go out and eat sushi and 'take risks' like drinking Rockstar energy drinks. You know, a couple of risk takers. Rebellious.
My Web site is kind of coming along. I need to put some more stuff on it... Some more stuff in the 'about' section because people e-mail me saying "You should have more random facts like your favorite food and whatever..." so I suppose I will! And also, my site forum
is coming along well too! Almost 90 users on it so far...
I made a new Vlog in Japanese today basically saying how my current goal is to make another demo album and send it to Japan, in attempt to get a record deal there. I know it sounds a bit out there and adventurous, but I think I have what it takes. And in Japan, your singing voice isn't really what matters most-- it's your personality. I mean, just look at Japanese IDOL singers-- none of them are fabulous singers, just good personalities. I think I have a pretty good voice and Japanese people seem to love my personality. So I'm going to see what I can do. I'm going to Japan in June or July (my dad is sending me there, I just need to accumulate a bit of spending money) and I'm so excited... I hope all of this works out.
I'm hungry. So I'm going to go eat dinner. I'll update my site more this week, and make an Intense and a GothicMae video as well. So keep an eye out! Current Mood: bouncy

|Wait... I'm a SCAM? Haha.
Hey guys, what's up? Yet another week has gone by... It's already Friday again! I actually think that times goes by faster when you don't have work or school. Haha. I think Japanese call a person like me a NEET, but because I'm just graduated from high school and in sort of a transition phase in my life, maybe I'm not a NEET. I just came back from Starbucks-- but for some reason when I drink their vanilla latte's I don't feel more hyper, but on the contrary, a bit lethargic. I wonder why?
I actually have PLANS this weekend, imagine that! Tomorrow morning I'm going to the beach with my friend Madi... I go to the beach literally once a year, but I bought a new bathing suit a month ago with the last of my work paycheck (It was 90 dollars!! For a BIKINI!! Sweet God!!) so I want to wear it as much as possible this year. Already Florida is super hot... But I'm not into shorts so I wear jeans everyday as my legs roast. Anyway, tomorrow night Miss Yuko is coming over. But that's nothing new, as she comes over every single weekend... We never do anything really exciting, but she seems to have a good time anyway.
I've accumulated so many haters lately! I've found a lot of online forums basically bashing my existence and saying I suck at Japanese and this and that... And I'll admit that I make mistakes in Japanese, but I'm 17 and self-taught and have never been there. I'm not making excuses, but it's the truth. When I go there this summer I'll improve a lot, I bet. And THEN there are people saying I'm a scam... WHAT? Haha. Is it because I said I might get a PayPal account? I'm not forcing anyone to give me anything. Some of the big YouTubers charge people money to view them in Stickam lives, but I let anyone come in and talk to everyone and anyone. People are just ignorant.. There's enough hate in the world right now, I think people should calm down and just enjoy things.
Anyway, for those of you practicing Japanese reading and what not, you might want to look at my Japanese blog
. It's nothing special but sometimes I post pictures in it and what have you. I also really like the layout... It's so cute!
In any case, I hope you all have a nice and stress-free weekend. Current Mood: amused

|of cameras and haters.
For some reason my LJ was set to screen all comments, which could either be a good or bad thing. So if you couldn't see any comments on the last post it's because they were all screened! Madness!
I wanted to add more to the Japanese mirror my site today, but I only got 5 hours of sleep last night so I'm kind of tired... I'm blasting music in my apartment to try to energize myself! Wake up, Emily!
Anyway my site seems to be pretty well-liked, doesn't it? I'm happy about that. :) 4channel spammed my board last night but WHATEVER. I guess 14 year old boys with no lives and internet crushes need to do something to occupy themselves with, right? Haha.
Does anyone have a reccommendation for a camcorder that I should get? I'm thinking about getting a Sony DCR-SR82. Have any of you used it? Is it a good camera? I played with it in the store and it seemed to be pretty darn awesome. :) I just want to hear what you guys have to say about it. I don't really trust Sony some of the time... With their exploding laptops, and what have you. Haha.
I'm going to go check my PO box later. I've gotten a handful of letters so far! Send me one, if you'd like.. My PO Box is written in the "Contact Me" portion of my site.
Anyway any feedback on the camera would be great. I'm going to go down some soda to wake up. Peace! Current Mood: lazy

This is my first journal post for my new Web site! Oh, the joy! But unfortunately, I'm not too sure what to write! Ahaha. It's taken a long while for my site to finally get put together, and I'm still not completely happy with it. I also have to put up a Japanese version of it within the next week or so... Well, I don't HAVE to, but I'd like to. Hehe.
In any case I hope to make a new "PRETTY INTENSE" video tonight or tomorrow in celebration of my new site! Yay for celebrations! But I wonder what kind of intense video it should be? There are people who want to see a new workout, or a new DDR lesson, or a new Japanese lesson... So it's hard to choose which one to do, you know? If you have a say in it, just post a comment on this entry or post it on the little BBS thing on my site. Opinions are everything!
I really need a better user picture for this account... An icon, or whatever you call them. I just haven't felt like making one lately.
Anyway I should put the final touches on my page and then upload it! Ciao! Current Mood: accomplished
