Maybe it's good to write down some thoughts...

I still remember how one year ago, I went to Shibuya to do some shopping for a friend and then headed to the post office to send it. Then the first earthquake came and I didn't really know what to do, but I just followed the people around me. I waited a little until it wasn't shaking anymore... people were still all confused... but I continued the way to the post office. Just when I handed in the package, a second strong earthquake came and I ducked under a table because everyone else said/did so. I went out of the building after it stopped and headed to the station because I would have to go to my part time job sooner or later.
It was really strange to see so many people outside. I mean, Shibuya is always crowded with many people, but since everyone came out of their offices etc. there were a loooot more people.
At the station I found out that the trains stopped. I thought it would maybe take some time but then I could take the train to work. I decided to call my parents (it was just morning in Germany) and I told them that I was safe (they hadn't even known that there was an earthquake). It was really a wonder to talk to them because soon after neither phone nor mail was working anymore. It was only twitter, facebook etc. that let me keep in ouch with everyone.
Then I finally got to know about the tsunami, and I couldn't quite believe what I had seen. And I couldn't comprehend it either. But by then I started to be worried about a friend in Sendai. I didn't know anyone else except her in Tohoku.
I tried to call my work several times, without luck of course. I stayed around the station for several hours just because I didn't know what to do. Then I decided to walk home. I knew the way (around 6km) and a lot of people were walking, so it was okay. I should have gone home a lot earlier but I was just so insecure about what was happening around me and all. I was glad that I had my phone to talk to friends on twitter at that time.

I think at that time I wasn't so much worried about myself, more about what exactly had happened and if everyone I knew was safe. I thank God that nothing really had happened to me. Because people more north of Tokyo had to cope with a lot more.
I went to Ishinomaki twice and I have seen what the tsunami had done.

I can only thank God that everyone I know was safe.
And I can only continue to pray for all the people who had lost so much in such a short time to have hope again. To be able to have a happy life again.

I know that there are many things happening in this world that we can pray for. But I guess not everyone can pray for everything. This is what I am praying for.

Woke up early. Tried to be at church at 7.30am…. well, it was maybe 7.40am, but a lot of people came after that ;D
We took off in one bus with around 45 people inside.
We were praying for the prefectures that we were inside (Tokyo, Saitama, Ibaraki, Gunma, Tochigi, Fukushima and Miyagi). I was sitting together with Kanako and got to know her more (I was talking with her on Friday and Saturday only a little). Then we arrived at some onsen hotel on a hill/mountain somewhere on the countryside, around 1 hour away from Ishinomaki (called Kashimadai….I guess). Actually the onsen there stopped after the earthquake and the hotel was quite damaged from it as well… but the people there rebuilt some parts of it and we could use it (there was a open bath room but no onsen anymore).
We had some time to get to our rooms (one room for the boys, two rooms for the girls, separated to high school and college girls, everyone had a futon set). After sitting on the bus for around 7 hours…one feels kinda exhausted x.x (we had a lunch break of course but still…)
We ate dinner and then had worship and small group. Chris was talking about loving Ishinomaki, the people in that city and people in general.
After that one day I kinda knew most of the girls… of course especially the college girls. Everyone was soooo niiiice!! And I mostly (80%?) was talking in Japanese hahaha (such a good practice, the whole week. The rest 20% was in English I guess xD).
Then time for bath, time to talk with the girls in our rooms (or outside…but I kinda preferred in our room) and bedtime…around 12pm :D

Getting up around 6.30am… worship at 7.30am and trying to leave the hotel at 8.30am, eating breakfast inside the bus. It’s great to start the day with worshiping God,
I was in the team that did “work” around Nakazato’s houses (the same place I was in June). We separated trash/cleaned up…well the girls did. The guys did more hard work ^^; Some of the girls did gardening work though. At the end we all pulled out weed around the houses. Quite a lot.
It was really warm, much sunshine…so without some breaks to rest in the cool house and drink something…. it’s impossible!
I had some good talk with the girls ^.^
After that we went back to the bus, had bento lunch on the way to our hotel. At the hotel we had some free time (which I really needed because I had a little headache).
Then it was time to meet for choir lesson. We learned the song “Live for you”. After one hour practice, we had dinner and worship & small group. Chris explained that we aren’t able to love people on our own.
Bath time and room time and sleep.

Got up around 6.30 again, same as the day before, worship, breakfast in the bus. Then we (my group) went to Nakazato’s house again. This time we didn’t have to ‘work’ but we went around, gave flowers as presents and invited for the festival.
It sounds easy… but it wasn’t. Most of the houses were actually empty. And sometimes people weren’t there or didn’t want to open the door. I went with Mizuki and Mary. We gave flowers to a woman and her mother, they were happy : )
Then we went to a house which was actually a café by volunteers (from a university in Tokyo). We gave them flowers of course and talked a little with them. Since there aren’t many shops in that area again (well it’s mostly destroyed), they made this café. Later we went to a house with some older man. His wife was just getting cared for by a nurse. We talked with him… we went to the backside of the house/garden. There was still a car in the garden that wasn’t been taken out yet. And we saw the apartment of them…they were using mostly one rom. The air con isn’t working anymore…and he showed us the pictures that he ‘lost’ (as in, the color was all over the page and such). We talked a little more…he said that they won’t repair the house because there will be made a street at that place sooner or later anyway (this was actually new to me O.O)…. so sad… we then prayed for him and his wife and left.
We went to some more houses. At one house we were rejected….the man was kinda scary… but some other houses, the women were so happy because they loved flowers ^.^
We did some breaks in between because it was hoooot and we needed some drinks ^^;;
At noon we went to the bus, got our lunch and went to the hotel.
There it was the same, little free time, choir time, dinner, worship/message, small group, bath time and talk in the rooms.
As our time with the small group got longer and longer, the bath time got shorter and shorter ><

Morning, same as always. Then we went to Ishinomaki. Today my group went to the place where the festival would be. We invited people who lived around there and gave them flowers as well. We were able to pray with three of the people who opened the door for us, we prayed outside for those who didn’t want to talk much or weren’t there…
The area where we were wasn’t thaaat destroyed but the way from the bus to that place showed some destruction….
After that we had some time to eat lunch in a supermarket at some other part of the city and then we went to a part which was really destroyed and had the “ganbarou Ishinomaki” sign (I went there in June too). The area didn’t look much different from before…but I mean, what should they do there except ‘clean up’…
We prayed in groups for the city and its people.
Then we went back to the hostel, didn’t have much free time (because we went to that place) and had the choir, dinner, worship, small group, bath time thing xD
On the day Natsuki came with someone else from TBC :D Because of work she couldn’t attend the first days…

In the morning we had breakfast at the hotel, then we had morning worship and went on the bus. We drove to the place for the festival, bought lunch in the konbini there and started preparing for the festival. I helped with the massage part and the talk place (?) part (sofa and a table with sweets and such, to sit down and just talk ^^). Outside they had hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn, water games for kids (and normal games) and such.
Several people came and I got to massage like 5 people or so ^^ They appreciated it : )
In the evening we had the concert. Well, the worship band had. The choir only sang one song…as a choir. Of course we sang every other song too, and jumped and such!! It was such a great atmosphere :3
At the beginning of the concert there were most of the people who came and stayed… but throughout the concert people left :/ But those who stayed REALLY enjoyed the concert and that’s important, right?!
After that we cleaned up…and went back… my last time in Ishinomaki (?)…
The bath time was short again lol
Then, because one was supposed to be able to see stars in the night, Moe-chan wanted to stay up and watch them outside… but there were too many clouds >< We still had a good time together but went to bed too late lol

Eating breakfast in the lobby again, packing everything to the bus/truck and then last worship…
Then we went home (we thought it would be crowded because of o-bon festival but it wasn’t that bad)….

I’m really glad I went to the camp. Actually I expected we would do more ‘hard work’ (the guys did :P) but it was so nice to see those people who don’t expect to get flowers as present be happy about those flowers we gave them!! And also that some of them opened up to us and talked with us.
The worship time was always SO MUCH FUN! I think that God also had fun together with us!!!! \o/ I also thank Maria, Miki, Pastor Chris, Nori, Connor, Philip and Kosuke for practicing so hard all the time with singing and the instruments!! :D The three singers kinda lost their voice after 1-2 days but God was merciful and at the concert everything was fine!!
The messages from Pastor Chris… well it started with us being supposed to love the people in Ishinomaki. Then it went on that God loved us FIRST (and we didn’t do anything for it… we don’t deserve it at all… but he gives us his love as a PRESENT) and we are able to share love with the love that God gave us.
1.John 4,10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
There is something called sin that hinders us from loving people. You can say that sin is just having a boss of your life that is NOT Jesus, but either yourself or people around you… But Jesus came has a human to live like us and he died for our sins so that even though we are a sinner (and we are NO WAY better than anyone else who doesn’t believe in Jesus Christ) we can come to God and live a life where he is the boss.
I also have to remind myself WHO the boss in my life is sometimes.
Apart from that, completely other part was….a made some new great friends!!! On the bus ride I tried to sit with different people mostly, to get to know more about them. Everyone was sooooooooo niiiiiiice T_T
We also had good talks after the bath time :3
I really miss everyone already… hope to see everyone in church soon again!!! <3
I didn’t have much time to talk with Miki or Maria though…. love both of them so much ///// but those are the ones that I used to talk with most of the time before anyway and I’ll see them a lot again…so that’s okay haha
One week was definitely too short. But I hope we were a little blessing to people in Ishinomaki.
And I really wanna go to Tohoku again!!!!!!! Since I only have baito and no school anymore, let’s see… : )
beccy_chan: (Default)
On Friday evening, I skipped the last lesson, went home to pick up my kuaggage and went to Shibuya. I met Susanne at Shibuya Station and we went to TBC (Tokyo Baptist Church) together. At the parking lot, everyone was waiting already, since we were a little late. Meeting time was at 6pm but we arrived around 6.10pm. (Susi I LOVE YOU :3)
After getting everything into the 3 vans and 1 car we took off around 7pm. There was kind of traffic jam in Shibuya and also on the streets going out of Tokyo…. maybe until we were almost outside… I hadn’t known that the highway is….in a tunnel (around Shibuya/Shinjuku) =O
In that time we got to know each other. My car was Dwayne (the driver and father of one of the girls who came along), Steven, Maria, Natsuki, Mizuki, Monika and Chloe. Our car’s name (though it was made up later) was CC Melon. Explanation: Christ (obvious) Cleaning (since we were supposed to clean up in Ishinomaki) and Melon for Melon bread (we bought a really big melon pan [pan = bread] later lol well, actually Dwayne bought it for us all :D)
We also started praying. We got a list with prayer requests for each prefecture we had to pass.
We stopped around 8.30 (maybe???) to have dinner. When Monika and me almost had finished our dinner (we were one of the last…somehow) a woman (foreigner) sat down close to us at the table (it was a food corner) and we talked a little. She said that she usually does a lot of volunteering at Fukushima but sometimes goes up to Ishinomaki too. Funny what people you meet coincidently :)
Then we took off again…. for some hour. We kept praying from time to time, talking and kinda sleeping. Around midnight we stopped again (that’s were we bought that melon pan) for a short time. When we arrived at the hotel thing (with onsen…well, public bath) in Sendai…it was almost 2am!! Zzzz I went to sleep right away.
I stood up around 5.40am… went to shower and onsen :D because we had to meet at 6.30.
We had a morning devotion time where we heard about not being a volunteer but being a servant. Because Jesus also didn’t come to earth to volunteer, but to serve. And we are here to serve because we wanna share that love that God has planted inside us.
Then we took off to Ishinomaki. Leaving Sendai… we saw the first parts of damage from the tsunami. But when we entered Ishinmaki maybe 1~1,5h later….we saw some real damage. The rivers were fuller than they used to be (you saw it because of the trees who were kind of inside the river now… and also a lot of “dead” trees), and you saw the houses who were damaged. But it didn’t look that bad….until we arrived at our destination where we had to clean up.
I was assigned to clean up at Nagasato’s houses. I was only putting trash into plastic bags. Sorting between light/breakable stuff and really hard staff. And I mean, it was mostly part of the wall of the houses and such… (Actually, most of the people who were living in the 4-5 houses we cleaned there…had died, I was told. That was somehow a strange feeling.)
I did that all day. Other people from the team were breaking down the walls and such or cleaning kitchen of some other houses which were repaired already (more or less) but…I was outside all day…. and got really sunburnt. We had a bento lunch break in-between. One of our youth members knows (Japanese) sign language and his friend (I guess) who was deaf also came along. In the lunch break he was dancing EXILE’s Choo choo train!! So cool! I was really impressed by that guy… he really did know how to make up for not being able to speak :D
Around 4pm we stopped. Then the volunteers who came from Texas (dunno for how long, definitely not for a weekend like we did) made hamburgers for the neighbourhood and us. Miki, Mami and Elsie went around earlier and invited people. There came maybe around 20-30 Japanese!! :D While they were waiting, we sang three worship songs :3
At some time, there were two Japanese girls (round 10 years old) who wanted to bring 3 plates home but couldn’t really carry it… so Maria decided to help them and I decided to come along in case we got lost (2 is better than 1 ;D). So we talked a little with those girls. I didn’t understand everything they sad D: but I didn’t want to interrupt them… Anyway, they asked why we were there and such and Maria wanted to share the gospel with them but they hadn’t even heard about Jesus Christ so it was difficult in a short time and then we had already arrived the place they stayed at (I think it wasn’t there house because they said that they didn’t know the streets in the area a lot).
I didn’t got to speak with other people from there but later we got introduced to a woman who lives next to where we did the ‘party’. She said that she climbed up the electrical tower with her 4 year old daughter and jumped to the apartment’s roof next to it where she slept over night (while it was snowing). And she said that she felt that something had saved her… I hope she will get to know Jesus Christ! She also said that her son and mother had died a little further away from their house, hand in hand.
After we had finished the ‘party’ and cleaned up, we went to the public bath. On the way to it we drove through some more destruction area. I hadn’t seen that much yet and the place where I was cleaning…around there it looked like still a lot of people would live there… but only from the next street onward… it was really destructed. No one was living there anymore. It was really strange…….
Then we went to the public bath, after that bought our breakfast for the morning and went to Ishinomaki Senshu University were we slept in tents. A lot of people were camping there. We (=the people in my tent) went to bed around 10pm…
I woke up in the morning kinda several times and went to kinda-sleep again. We had to be ready around 8.30am to pull down the tents so I could actually sleep long (XD). I got up around 7.10am, ate my breakfast and got ready. It was raining so it wasn’t very nice to pull down the tents :/ Also, we had planned to do a service outside (at the place where we did the party on Saturday evening) but… we had to use one of the almost-done houses instead. We had a great service were Christ talked about that we shouldn’t be proud of what we did in Ishinomaki but know about the love that Jesus has for us and because of which he came to earth as a human and died for all our sins. And we were there in Ishinomaki because we have this love inside of us and not because we wanna do good things that we can be proud of afterwards. :D
After the service… we went from Ishinomaki to Onagawa. That was… WOW. I can’t put it into words. It looked like after a war. Almost no houses were standing there. Your heart really gets heavy when you see something like that for real…..
After we had looked at that, we went back to Ishinomaki and back home. Loooooong ride. We arrived in Tokyo around 8pm because we had some traffic on the way…

I didn’t really take a lot of pictures. It felt weird taking pictures of destroyed houses. It felt weird taking pictures of places were so many people died or lost their family and everything.
I only took some as memories for myself.
Also, it really feels strange being back in Tokyo again… everything so normal here.
I definitely wanna go again. If I can, I wanna go on the trip in July. If I can’t, then at least the one week camp in August.
I didn’t tell my parents that I went there… I mean, I even drove through Fukushima prefecture!! I don’t think they would like that :O That’s why I was only tweeting about the weekend in Japanese because I dunno if they might read my twitter (or other people from my home church).
And, lastly I wanna say. I don’t regret that I missed the haru doko event. I had bought the DVD just to attend the event. But got told me to go to Tohoku and I went. I even skipped the lesson for it. I also was busy with homework for it. But I’m glad I went. Next time I wanna have more contact with people there. I will pray for the two girls and that woman definitely!

I wanna share Psalm 46 with you =D

Psalm 46 (New International Version (NIV))

1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

7 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

8 Come and see what the LORD has done,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”

11 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

….the sunburn on my arms really huuuurts T.T
And I have a speech tomorrow and I’m not prepared. Same goes for the two vocabulary tests. Haha but that’s normal already lol

three pictures i wanna share with you )

I wish that everyone has a nice Easter weekend!! :D

In the morning I watched SHT, then took a shower.... and then I decided not to go to 11am service XD
I finally saw Kenki in Shu Ichi!! lol
Then I took a little nap (because I didn't go to bed after Seto yesterday but watched TV until later.....haha) and Chrissi and me left around 12am XD
I went to 1.30pm service!! The concert was so great!! And I was so happy to see my choir again..... and I'll sing again next week!! YAY!!! It feels right to be here :D Everyone welcomed me back (well, those who saw me) <3
Then I stood around with some girls... who wanted to attend the 3.30pm service and I wanted to watch the concert again, so I went together with them ^.^
After church I went around for window shopping with two of the girls (who I actually met first time today XDD).
All day the weather was really beautiful, almost too warm lol but in the evening it became a little cold ^^;

I'm looking forward to Asuko March later... and then.. dunno.. sleep? =O
beccy_chan: (Default)
Good evening!! (at least here XD)
I'm sooo exhausted from working the whole day x.x haha

Yesterday morning I went to see Runway Beat in 3D!! And I didn't have to pay anything haha since I had bought the pre-sale ticket weeks ago... and the 3D was only the last 10 minutes so I didn't have to pay for the effect either!! \o/
I think the 3D wasn't actually needed... it was only the fashion show at the end. I mean, it was cool how the bubbles and glitter band (?) seem to touch you anytime soon... but when the students were walking on the runway... it didn't actually look like 3D that much ^^; I'm glad that I didn't have to pay for that. It was a nice gimmick, but thats all.

I came home and we made lunch. Then... we actually wanted to go to Harajuku and do some kind of hanami, but the weather wasn't that good (it wasn't bad either... but no sunshine =/) and we kinda got tired/sleepy... so we just did nothing for some time.
Later we went to Shibuya, we wanted to go to OOO shop but it's only open until 6pm we missed it :/ We met with Chie who had exchanged USJ live ticket and D2 live ticket for us (because both was cancelled) and I also received my D☆DATE CDs from here!! She bought them at the event so I got extra pictures! So nice of her :3
After that I went to church. I was a little late, but I still got a seat (it was really crowded XD). After the service I met Maria, Miki, Su, Natsuki and everyone T__T They welcomed me back and were happy to see me again :D I gave them some German chocolate and they liked it <3
When I came home, I saw the end of Umareru (I'm curious about NakaKen's character....orz), watched the Inu drama ('s boring....) and then it was time for SHIMA SHIMA!!! love <3333 I want my own sheep~~ Well first I wanna have cute goods from TBS store XDD

Today I had work the whole day... so there's not much to tell you. It was raining all day (and still is)... there weren't many the time seemed to be looong... haha but at the end Sagawa-san made a cocktail for me! She's so kind :D Everyone is so kind!! And I think I get used to everything more and more!
I'm waiting to see Seto on TV now and then I'll sleep :D
Tomorrow is Easter concert!!!!!!! YAY! ^0^

Love you =3

As most people now from twitter or facebook, I safely arrived in Japan. :D
Chrissi and me arrived in the morning on 20th, took bus and train and were at home around 10.30am or so. Then we tidied up a little and such... I took a shower... then we slept/lazed around XD
Around 6pm we finally got up again... watched a little TV, then watched tokusatsu on computer... then waited for D☆DATE to appear on TV lol and slept again XD
This morning we stood up, had breakfast, went to pay bills and such... At home we made lunch and prepared to go out. I had work today~ So I went to Ginza and well, worked. Everyone welcomed me back <3 And I was afraid to make mistakes or be bad at speaking Japanese, but it was actually all okay ^0^
But now I'm soooooo exhausted x_x I didn't do much in the last one and a half walking 2 hours and then working 5 hours...something I have to get used to again XDD
Oh...and I also have to lose weight asap!! I gained too much and my uniform at work almost didn't fit @.@ (I was actually afraid that could happen...) But I don't have much money anyway, so that should just take 1-2 weeks XDD
Yosh, gonna sleep now :3
Love you all ^w^

Continuing from earlier!!
Until the day I had to leave Japan....
I don't know if i shall write about what I did here in Germany because.... I didn' do a lot anyway XDDDDD

finally contains a little report about haru doko )

january XD

Apr. 17th, 2011 11:25 pm
beccy_chan: (Default)
Yesss I wrote about what I did in January.... it's already April... XDDD
Anyway, it's more for myself anyway, but whoever is interested...
I did a lot of seems lol )

Gonna work on February now... so glad I'm such a twitter-addict XDDD
beccy_chan: (Default)
I'm not doing translations, not writing entries about what I did in January and February... but I read my friends list after...months. OMG I'm such a bad friend. Or well, I'm just too twitter-addicted. It already takes some time to read all tweets after I got up or whenever I come home after some hours... I guess most people don't even read that =O
Anyway, there are so many lovely people on twitter or in here, I can only be thankful!!
Please forgive me for abandoning LJ so much m(_ _)m
I actually threw a lot of communities off my friends list (mostly johnnys related lol) so right now it's so less, I will try to read it regularly!!! ...especially when I go back to Japan again.
I still hope to go back soon!! I mean, everyone in Tokyo is living as normal as they used to...almost. The problem are my parents who don't want to let me go.... (and maybe all the people that wanted me to leave Tokyo asap.) Waseda university also postponed the beginning of the new semester by one month, but still, I could work and earn money in that time!! ._. And I miss my church there T-T
So many people are doing charity events, but I have no idea how to do that. I would love to help with anything... since I have no money to donate D:
I mean, I already had the newspaper interview, then I talked in front of my brother & sister's class about Japan (about university and general life as well) and then at my church's boy scout (?). I don't wanna talk anymore (I don't wanna hear "How was everything for you?" anymore!! -.-), I wanna DO something. But this is countryside, what can I do? :/

That aside, I'm all fine. Just really bored. I could do translation, studying and all, but I wanna go out. I miss Tokyo T-T
I hope you're all fine too?

I wanna talk about dramas. Anyone want to talk with me?
I finished Misaki No.1 T-T Good that next season has school dramas again lol
Still have to watch School, Honboshi, Dekawanko and Taisetsu na koto (the last episode has still to air). Ohhh and Heaven's flower of course. It's not been airing in the last weeks :/
I dunno if I shall continue with Control or Quartet, since I stopped it halfway in Japan. And there are still some dramas from the winter season I should finish =O
Do you already know which dramas you'll watch next season? My list contains 12 dramas I could watch. Shiawase ni narouyo (Meisa <3), Suzuki Sensei (Yukki), Namae wo nakushita Megami (Igarashi :D), Good Life (Araki :D), BOSS 2 (Junpei :3 though I never watched the first season haha), Shitsuren Hoken, Umareru (NakaKen...), Inu wo kau to iu koto, Kokosei Restaurant (Kamiki :3), JIN2 (Ayase Haruka... I didn't watch the first season of this one either, but it's supposed to be good), Asuko March (Kakkun :D), Shima Shima (SHOHEI <3)
Long list, as it's every time before the dramas start. In the end I'll only watch like half of it XDD Especially with school AND baito lol. I won't have time at all hahaha
But, did I miss any drama that I 'have' to watch?? I didn't pay too much attention to announcements ^_^;;

Sorry for that random entry. You can just ignore it~
beccy_chan: (usui)
Hi everyone!!!!
First, I wanna thank all those lovely people who were so worried about me in Japan (on facebook or twitter or so). I felt really loved T_T
Then, I'm in Germany now, until April 10th. I hope.
I wanna go to D☆DATE's handshake-events though ;_;
I'm praying for Japan to be safe again soon.
I really felt like a traitor to leave Japan behind. To leave all my friends and idols there.
They all think that they're (still) safe. I don't get it. But I just hope that they are right.
Everything is in God's hand! He's in control! Though right now that's difficult to believe.
But we just have to keep praying.
I'll try to write an entry about January until March. Now that I'm at my family's home, I have nothing to do anyway. Shouldn't waste my time -_-

Btw. there are a lot of people who added me in the last....months. Just wanna say, if you want me to add you back, please tell me. I wanna add you back :3

The local newspaper made an interview with me about my experiences with the earthquake and such. If you're interested:
„Japaner leben, als wenn nichts wäre“ Korbacher Zeitung Waldeck Lokales / WLZ/

I MISS JAPAN!!!! I already started to miss it at the airport in Munich. :/

HIIII everyone (^0^)
I arrived safely in Japan. I can't write a lot since I'm only at an internet cafe right now... after a night of karaoke xD
I'll say more when... I know WHY we didn't receive the keys to our apartment as we were supposed to. I wanna take a real shower~~ haha
...I posted on twitter from my German cellphone. I had not idea that it works (by email)... and I have no idea how much it costs..... o_O
maahhh anyway, I'll write more soon <3
beccy_chan: (Default)

Nothing much to say but...for those who didn't read it on twitter/facebook/wherever:
And Chrissi as well!!! :D

This means....I can go and watch Tumbling and D-Stage in theater!!!!!!!!
Well, it also means that I have to prepare a lot of things, like Auslandsbafög, flight ticket, apartment in Tokyo and so on.... XD

Only 2 episodes of Tumbling left T____T
I don't want it to end.....
I have to do more translations!!!! Okay, I guess, the photobook has enough to translate XD
But I have to wait for it first D:

Have a blessed week!! ♪

PS: I have a new layout.... made by the awesome misa!! :D I need to get something Tomo-ish for her now!
beccy_chan: (Default)

So, the new semester started finally!! :D
I think it was really time... I was way too lazy!! lol

Well, I just had Japanese classes until now. And not a lot yet. XD
It's better than last year at least <3
We get texts that are quite challenging to read now.
With lots of new vocabularies~
And the one teacher...she even welcomed us in Japanese and talked so much at first.
(Later she switched to German when she had to announce important things)
I really think that last year...our teachers should have talked more in Japanese~
Anyway, now it seems better. <3

My timetable is quite okay or's still incomplete because of tutorials and such and I dunno which group I will be in yet...
And one seminar...I should have had on Thursdays... we'll have it on 3 weekends in January because there are no rooms... WTF!! 0_0
Ruhr Universität is biiiiig enough~~~ why no roooooms? T_T
I still have to finish my assignments...*cough*

Apart from school, last week I met with Dana, Lisa and Sophie again :D
On Monday we watched the Hidarime Tantei EYE SP drama ^0^
Thursday we watched My girl together...and I watched Kanjani8 DVD together with Lisa.
On Friday night, I went to karaoke with Lisa and Sophie ^___^
(...I sang Kamen Rider songs...hahahaha |D)
Then, this weekend my little brother and sister (the twins) are staying over at my/my grandparent's place.

I really do nothing for school D:
You know...I finished watching Kamen Rider Kiva on Saturday.
(I watched it together with Jonny~ lol)
Seto Koji~~ <3
Then I also watched Romes first episode.
I think it's really similar too Karei naru spy... and also a little bloody Monday...
Tacchon and Yasu were really cute in it, though ;D
I looked into Shokojo Seira, Samurai High School and My girl 2...
Seira looked nice, I will watch the first episode and maybe I'll continue...
Samurai High School looked funny~~ XD
And My girl..... it's too cute *___*
I fell in love with it when I watched the first episode on keyhole XD
I have to watch the second one, soon~~~
but lately megaupload doesn't like me much anymore, so I'm kinda dependent on torrents
...and I'm still waiting for Otomen... where is episode 9? T-T

Now I shall end my stupid talk.
I have more pictures form August!!
Really late...I know... o__o
I tried to upload them some times, before, but somehow it wouldn't work :/

so here you are!! )

Sooo this weekend I went home...mostly because of Connichi.
I took Chrissi with me XD
Friday evening we watched the last episode of Koishite Akuma (I had seen it but Chrissi hadn't)
And we did anything else instead of going to bed early (what I wanted to do, actually)

Saturday we got up earlyyyy and went to Kassel.
We had to get a ticket for Chrissi! (I got one from Alia's friend who couldn't make it anymore)
And there weren't many tickets sold in the morning... so yeah, we waited outside of the hall and watched Arashi no Sukudai-kun and PVs on my ipod ;DD
When we finally had the ticket, we had to wait for Alisa to arrive since she had the ticket for me ^^;;
We walked around a little and had second breakfast and such xD

After Alisa arrived and I had a ticket, too, we immediately went to the stands with magazines XDD
There's nothing much to buy there apart from that ^-^;;;
Then we walked around here and there... I met some friends!! <3
Chrissi and me went to karaoke...well, we had to wait until the workshop had finished and then we could finally start =D
It wasn't very crowded at first...but then more and more people came.
But we were the only ones who sang Johnnys until the karaoke contest. ^^;
We went some time before the karaoke contest (we wanted to eat something ;D) because they were just singing anime openings in German ^^;; overall they sang anime songs mostly :/ (I shouldn't complain...I know...I was just a little disappointed)
Chrissi and me had cheap dinner xD and ice cream too ;D and then went back to Connichi...
since the karaoke contest was still going on, we couldn't sing... and then it was almost time for BACK-ON concert, I think? (I dunno exactly...but I know we weren't able to sing before .__.)
The concert was really nice!! I don't know much about BACK-ON but at least they make good music!! ^0^ I also bought the German version of their CD ^^
Just...the concert was quite short...... ^^;;;
After that we went to their signing session ^__^ got my CD signed <3
Then we went to karaoke again....and I was even more disappointed.
Chrissi and me had to wait for sooo long until we finally could sing one song :/
because other people gave wished a lot of songs at there was a long playlist (of course mixed, not that one person sing all his songs at once) but yeah...we waited very long.
Then they decided to play German anime openings again *sigh* it would have been a lot bearable when not everyone in the room was like shouting >< some time before that a girl sang "seishun amigo" and so 4 of us or so sang along...but it was really nice, not too loud :D but those anime songs...aahh Chrissi and me didn't want to hear we listened to my ipod xD;; and later we left the room and waited outside for the other 2 girls that I had to take home, too. It was already around 1am and since I had to drive home like 1 hour, I didn't want to wait anymore to sing another song ^-^;;
Soon after we went home.
Ohh actually Sandra, a friend I hadn't met for a long time, was staying over for the night xD
It was really last minute (I invited her on Friday night) XD

We all didn't get a lot of sleep until Sunday morning...but we went to church nevertheless ;D
(I'm guests have to come along for church on Sunday....XDDD)
In the afternoon we 3 took the train(s) home :3
Today I slept very long and just lazed around...^-^;;;

now some pictures!!!
and I will upload purikuras from August, too! =D
finally I'm not too lazy to upload!! )
beccy_chan: (Default)
Ahh...I just packed my things...or...almost all of them.
yabaiyo I might have more than 20kg... yabai~~~~ T-T

Anyway, today was the first day of the camp in church. So much fun!!!
In the morning after worship service we split into groups (middle school, high school and young adults; each boys and girls groups)
We made like little introductions and then had to make a skit.
Every group had a story... we had snow white :D
Actually I was the only non-Japanese in the group...hahaha... and they decided I shall be snow white ^^;;;; I was like, well, whatever, ne XD;;
But in the end it was so much fun =DD
And later we practiced songs for the concert on Friday night (I wish I'd still be here then D:) and then we split into 3 different groups...I had chosen vocal training ^_^ (there was also sound/video and English lessons)

After that all...I said good bye to everyone there.... T___T
Though I hadn't been there for so long...I immediately felt at home again....

Then I met with Dilya. We went to the book store <3
After Lory finished her work she also came <3
I went to Tower Records a last time....hahaha....
And then we had dinner ;D and took purikura at last.

I don't wanna go home ;______;

And I need a lot of luck tomorrow at the airport....XDDD
