Between Jpn and Work - Onmyoji

My sleeping schedule is all messed up lately. I keep saying I should sleep early, but when I am in my room I feel like I should keep busy fixing my computer or working on my scrapbook rather than sleeping. Music isn't helping me sleep either - I might have to go back to meditating to Hiromasa's flute music, as that *always* put me to sleep :p Though, uh, I was not trying to *sleep* but meditate for homework O_o
Work starts in a few days and I am really dreading it. Even after being abroad, I still am paranoid about the tours, taking phone calls, and all the other work that should be a peice of cake.
I haven't been feeling so wonderful. I feel guilty for all the stuff I brought back from Japan - wow I spent a lot of money and now I have ordered the Onmyoji movie on top of it all! I feel horrible. But I *have* been waiting to have that since oh maybe two years ago! Still, I am guilty about that and the fact that I feel as though I'd rather be in Japan. I should be grateful to be home, but I liked it more there. I walked a lot, woke up early and felt decent - now I am lazy and feel the results.
I will stop complaining, as nobody needs to hear it! :) But if I sound stressed, or a bit down, you know why.

I miss speaking Japanese.

On the bright side, I ordered the Onmyoji movie! Yay! I get to practice my Japanese and see those great Heian guys again! I can't wait to *finally* see the movie with subtitles so I can understand what they say^^ Yosh! XD My history with the Onmyoji saga deserves a little interlude...

My first encounter with the word, was of course with Subaru and X/Tokyo Babylon. Then I think in a class, Hiraga-sensei showed us a snipet of the first film where Seimei used an Onmyoji curse to split a butterfly in two! It got my interest and I was tempted to ask to see the whole film, but I was too busy at the time. I remembered the title, though.
When the Japan Club voted for movies to buy, I checked that off, begging that they get it, but no one else voted for it ;_;
I forgot about it for a while.
In the fall one night (2004) at Machiko's house in Neyagawa, I was flipping channels while she was busy and came accross some guy in heian clothes, so I stopped to see what the story was. I'd actually stumbled onto the sequel!! Whoops... It was a lot of fun and I coudn't believe that I'd found it! Yatta! I didn't realize that it was the sequel, but I knew it was Onmyoji.
A couple months later, in February at my new host family, we came accross a movie that started about the Heian Period. My host mom knew I loved history so we watched it - it was the first movie! I was so ecstatic I nearly danced ^^
After that I began collecting!! Manga, novels, artbook, movie photo collection books...and finally the movies. I had planned to buy them over Winter break but thankfully my friend warner me that I could save $100 if I waited and bought them in the States. I did. Finally!!
So that's my fun story! :)
See, I am a big fan^^

On the topic of movies, I saw the ROTK Extended Edition today - it was long but fun! I watched it while working on my scrapbook, which is over halfway done I hope.

Hmm and my Genji books are looking at me and asking "When are you gonna read us??" I'll get to Genji when I get time ^_^ Too bad Seimei and Hiromasa don't show up there. Semimaru, too. zannen. Anyway, I *love* my Genji set^^ It's pretty!
