 And before this day ends (It's 9 PM here already, and I almost forgot to do this "tradition" of mine every first day of the month) It's June again! I remember making my very first start of the month entry last year and I'm doing it again. 

This day has been full of FEELS. Seriously. I can't describe how amazing Arashi are; watched the first disc of Are You Happy? DVD just a while ago (I'll watch the other disc tomorrow because I need rest and I suddenly felt chest pains *it's gone now tho!*) I'm yet to download Japonism Arena and I'm sooo excited to watch it as well! I'm a bit sad I didn't get to buy the DVD, but hey, I might do so in the future once I save up money again. 

June is going to be hell of a month for me - classes are starting, though I won't be going 'till much, much later because of medical stuff, so I guess I have some time in my hands (time wasted by waiting for appointments and stuff, I guess.)


I hope everyone has a nice month ahead! Here, have some Nino. <3 (His solo performance was nice - the lights they used were great, though the fact that the camera is always far away is meh) 

Hello, May~

It's the month of May! (Oh, the amount of "It's gonna be May(me)" memes I've seen all the past week) A lot of things will be happening this month for me, and I'm both nervous and excited (I've been blabbering about my "May" plans for a while now, I apologize.) Though there's a catch: I might miss the first month and a half of classes this June/July. (I'll be surprised if anyone guesses what's up lol)

I guess the highlight of April for me was my trash fic winning "Best Junba" for the Arashi fic awards 2016. Like, seriously, even though that fic is dubbed trash by me, it made me happy knowing people actually nominated and voted for that. So yay and thanks to those who did! :D

Anyway, as of now... these past few days, I've been obsessing over Assassin's Creed (Syndicate) on PS4. A bit late, yeah, but my friend finally got me into buying two(!) games of the franchise and seeing what's up. I gotta say: I hate how much I'm loving it, despite the damn glitches (Oh, Ubisoft.) I actually have lots of games to finish, and a few I have to play all over again (Hello, Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5) and the thing is, I keep buying new games, which is why I'm so broke now.

To sum this trash entry up (this is a bit last minute now, huh lol), I hope for everyone to have a great month ahead! :)

It's been a while since I posted anything here (both LJ and DW) and truthfully, I'm not sure if I'll be used to the whole "moving somewhere else/DW". This month is coming to an end in just a few days, which is... wow. Time sure flies, huh? Anyway. I just wanted to drop by my friends' reading pages/feeds, and say a quick hello. I just got home from spending some time with a friend, she gave me Arashi's Beautiful World album as a souvenir from her trip to Japan. And, of course, some chocolates. She's amazing, really, since I'm broke af right now. 

Speaking of being broke and Arashi - the DVD... are you going to buy it? Did you pre-order it already? I'd like to say the same but sadly, I didn't (because of the whole "I'm broke af" thing lmao) I guess I'll just be waiting for someone god-sent to upload the concerts. Haha! 

A year!

It's been a year since I "officially" became an Arashian. I haven't been in the fandom long like my fellow Arashians, but over the past year... it has been amazing. Not to shit on my other - past - fandoms, but I've never felt so comfortable around my co-fans like I did with this fandom. Everyone is just so nice! I adore this fandom so much.

My "journey" to this fandom was a rather odd one, to be honest. I was Jun-baited, technically, over HanaDan. And when I watched it years ago for the first time, I didn't really bother much with Jun, but was in love with the opening song of the drama (which was Wish) I didn't even know Jun was in Arashi back then!! Since then, I've this sort of tradition to binge-watch that drama (both seasons!) every year or two and I have Wish in my music during those years. And when I did watch again last year, March 30th (today), according to Twitter (x) (x) (why did I link this shit lmao @ me) I thought to myself that I should probably learn more about them. Long story short: I watched this performance, listened to Fukkatsu Love, Bittersweet, learned their names (coughs Aiba became my ichiban coughs), found fandom members on Twitter, watched their variety shows/concerts/etc and fell IN LOVE with the group.

Man... I just feel so happy with this group and its fandom. ♡

Alright look, I said I'm going to make this journal alive, so I'm doing just that. Warning: Spoilers. MAJOR spoilers. I'm incoherent rn lol why would you even read this

It's that start of the month post from me again! I almost forgot. Lol. This month stresses me out already as it's the month of deadlines and etc. It's also the month of making important decisions, which makes me overthink. Summer is around the corner here and I can already feel the hot season. Truthfully, I just want to take a break, spend a few days sleeping or just read a book or something. I'm so tired.

I may or may not watch Logan today. If I do watch it (either today or tomorrow) I might do a little... review? Haha. Trainspotting 2 is also out in cinemas here but that movie is only exclusive on selected - far - cinemas here, which sucks. But hey, I guess I'll wait for the DVD.

This is a short entry*notreally*... oh gosh I just hope that by the end of the month, things would be sorted out... (i.e my life) Also March 30th, from what I've read in my tweets last year, is my first year as a fan of Arashi. More years to come.

I hope everyone has a great month ahead. Cheers.

Or so says Christian from Moulin Rouge. (couldn't think of a proper title lmao) Anyhoo, it's that start of the month entry post from me. I did skip a month, January. I forgot. But it's kinda understandable (to me at least) since I was busy with family/New Year stuff. It's the month of February---the month of, as they say, Love.

For the month of January though, all I ever did was, as usual, laze around; stress over deadlines and all that jazz. New Years was meh, slept early on New Years eve, then got up early to attend a family reunion the following day.

I got back into reading, which is great (I thank a friend for recommending books and pulling me out of my reading slump) I'm reading Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda right now (also reading Attachments and Hamilton on the side). The story of it is great, but the only downside I notice is that one of the characters remind me of someone in the past. (Move on, N. Geez.) It's a bit difficult to read a few parts, but hey, whatever gets me going, right. I've also started watching the series Mr. Robot, I'm at episode 3 now of the first season, and I'm liking it a lot (granted, I only checked it out because I started liking Christian Slater lmao)

Hopefully this month turns out well. The last few months---or year---have been more of a routine to me, which sucks. At least I'm doing a few things out of it by now.

To end this crappy entry, I've greeted him already on Twitter but: Belated Happy Birthday, Sakurai Sho!

And! have a great month ahead!

It's been a while, eh? First of all: Happy New Year! (I'm 4 days late.) I was actually planning on doing my "Start of the month" entries seriously this year, but it's only the first month, and I'm already late.

Anyhoo, I'd just like to pop in with a greeting, but that doesn't feel like me now, does it?

Truthfully, I've been contemplating moving to dreamwidth (along with other LJ users) and start anew (or perhaps move my stuff from here to there lol if I'm not lazy) I already have an account and all (Head over to aranix <--) but don't really feel like moving? I find it weird, but then again, I'm an indecisive bish LMAO.

I may post future download links there (if I ever get my hands on stuff you can request if you want my specialty are OSTs lol jk) as for fanfiction, I haven't really done any these days, so I'm still not sure.

So for now, I may pop in here, move a few stuff over there... Mhm... If you guys already have accounts, feel free to tell me so I can add you there!

Aiba Month!

it's Aiba's month! Sunshine Masaki! Aiba Masaki! (*´▽`*)

It's that start of the month post again. Lmao. How is it December already?! It feels like it was only yesterday when I posted that Ohnovember start of the month post. Haha! Anyway. The year is coming to an end, and I have mixed feelings about it. I'm (surprisingly) getting into the Christmas spirit and all that, but there are still stuff I need to sort out before the year ends.

Buuuut the main reason why I feel excited to make this post is to say: Sunshine Masaki's gonna host Kouhaku! (I'm sure everyone knows already lmao) although, the sad part is that Arashi won't be performing in JCD. :(

Alright yada yada yada...  ( ̄▽ ̄)

I hope for everyone to have a great month ahead! (That including Christmas & New Year)

Here, have some Aiba!

*It's rare for me to use kaomojis lmao sorry

It's that "start of the month" post from me again. And it's been half a year since I started doing this. (Albeit I skipped two months. Lol)

It's Ohnovember!! Meaning there's one month left for this year. It makes me go "What, really?!" thinking about it, to be honest. Anyway, there weren't that much happening last month (for me, at least) and the thing that goes/tops my list of "happenings" is Are you Happy? album release. My copy hasn't arrived yet, though. I doubt it will arrive this week since it's the holidays here (maybe Thursday or Friday this week or next week. Standard shipping OTL) Oh, I guess meeting an online friend (Oct. 29th) can be considered as a "happening" too. Lmao. Ack—truthfully, I hate not having that much to talk about in posts like this. It just goes to show that my life is a "routine"

That aside, as I've said: it's Ohnovember!! And my icon is adorable lmao. Vampire Satoshi! I can't believe that man is going to turn a year older again on the 26th... wow. Also--I'm not one to get overly-excited over this since I don't really do much to celebrate, but hey--my birthday is on Tuesday. Which sucks because it's a weekday and we have this event to attend for a class.

To end this, I hope you guys have an awesome month ahead! Here, have some Ohno! ♡

Now I'm off to watch some old Arashi variety shows!

It's October 1st here, so obviously this is my start of the month post again. I'm gonna start it by saying: How the hell is it October already? Unbelievable.

But for some reason, the moment I went online and realized that it is October now, I can't help but think about the elections (though I'm not in the US or am American) starting on the 8th of this month up 'till my birthday next month. Because I'm that low-key into politics lol kidding. Influence from relatives living there, probably.

Anyhoo. I ended the month of September by paying stuff so I'm starting this month being broke af. I don't really have that much going on for this month. But school-wise, we'll be having this sports week thing on the 12th and basketball game on the 4th. Exams too. What sucks is that we don't even get a break this month. It tires me out just by thinking about it.

But hey! Are You Happy? album will be released this month! On the 26th! So that's something I'm looking forward to. It's going to be like a gift for the hard work I'm gonna be doing. (Yeah right.)

I hope everyone will have an awesome month ahead! ♡

I can't believe it's the 15th already. Aha. And I most certainly cannot believe it's been 17 years since Arashi debuted. True, I've only been an "official" fan for a while, but it makes me proud, knowing how they stayed strong and together for almost 2 decades now. I actually read this blog post this morning, about the hardships that they've encountered at different points of their careers (especially from when they debuted up 'till 2005/6), and again, it makes me proud knowing that despite all of that—they're here. They stayed together and strived hard to get to where they are now. And man, just look at how they've become!

I don't want this to be all sappy and all, so here are a few gifs of the 5 adorkables who won our hearts. Happy 17th anniversary, Arashi! ♡

幸せをありがとうございます, 嵐 ! 5x17

Surprise, surprise: it's that start of the month post from me again.

August Recap? J A P O N I S M the wait, the frustration, the feels and all that stuff. Ore no Chiba date anniversary [eyes emoji] and of course アツ潤 I mean, 松潤's birthday just the other day (That was lame of me wasn't it) Anyhoo. I did a lot this August. Managed to start and finish some trash and actually felt proud of it, etc, etc...

As the month starts, I realize that there are two months until my birthday, which made me go "what?" because last I checked it was only April. Aha. But that aside, I guess the most important event for an Arashian like me, is Arashi's 17th anniversary on the 15th. 5x17 yoooo. Their new single, Power of the Paradise, will be out a day before that! Just watched the preview of the PV actually.

Here, have some cameraman Aiba to start the month! ♡

Since LJ stopped being mean to me and finally allowed me to post properly: here's an introduction!

I'm Nicole or N. I don't mind which one you use to address me. I'm... well, socially awkward. An introvert. I try my best to talk to people around here and be friends with them though. Really! I'm still new to the world of LJ as it took me a long while to gather up the courage to create an account here and socialize.

Arashian (Arashi), ELF (Super Junior), I'm also into Visual Kei/Jrock bands such as X Japan, the GazettE, Miyavi, and SuG. Also a Killjoy (MCR), and currently converted to Marvel & DC trash. (No regrets. None at all.)

I post very random things; from rants, random blabberings, even downloads to fanfictions (Anyone want to be my beta-reader?). You have been warned. But please, do feel free to approach and talk to me here or tweet to me at aibasshi on twitter or at neenoshi on tumblr. I'm more active on Twitter, and I need more fandom friends. I really do. It's torture having all these "feels" and not having any friends to share them with! Oh, and if I somehow forget to add you back, please comment here so I can! Entries are mostly public, but do know that when you add me, you'll be seeing some very random stuff that can get pretty personal sometimes... (for those of you who just added me 'cuz of downloads, I don't post much. Just those I can get my hands on!)

よろしく ~ ❤️

Ah, I'm still new to all of this. Hence I'm being too cautious(?) ;-; I'm slowly starting to come out of my shell though, as I've decided to make an account, join communities, post stuff, etc. OTL
