      I'm a heifer

      No, seriously. People keep telling me "you're not that big for 9 months!" or "it's all belly!" And I very much appreciate these people, though it's up for debate whether they are lying or not.


      The fact remains that I have hit WADDLE mode.


      Two more weeks and I'll pop this princess out. I hope. She better not be late. >.>


      The hubs bought me The Witcher as a Black Friday gift (aka, "I just bought a whole lotta stuff at Best Buy that was not at all baby related so here is something for you so you don't give me The Look"). It's updating now on my ps4. The goal is to play and beat this sucker before I give birth. Otherwise I'll be gaming while nursing and that just has to be awkward.... I've heard good things about this game, but have any of you played it? Worth getting really into?


      The Pacific NW is doing its rainy thing and I'm definitely not used to this cold, but I'm not minding it so much. Being super pregnant doesn't really make me inclined to go out and frolic. On the days that are nice, though, this place is lovely and I'm really glad the CG moved us here. I didn't realize how much I've missed snow covered mountains since moving away from Korea.


      SO THERE. It's not all detail filled, but as far as updates go it's to the point, yes?


      I'm off for now. Cheerio mah loves!

      Le news

      7 months ago

      I meant to write so much sooner than this, but I knew if I did, I'd spill the beans.

      I've been busy. Busy doing what?

      MAKING A HUMAN.

      photo.php?fbid=10100854111925163&l=32e62

      Due to arrive this Christmas!

      Whoever coined the phrase "morning sickness," needs to be punched for inaccuracy. IT LASTS ALL DAY, EVERY DAY. For the past 9 weeks. The first trimester of pregnancy could legitimately be considered a form of torture.

      Other than that, I'm very glad my husband is back from deployment to take care of me. I wasn't expecting to get pregnant during his leave back in March/April, but hey.....that's what unprotected sex gets ya, kids! It only takes once. Seriously.

      Yay, miracle of life! :D

      I crave apples. Nom.

      Atop the Glorious Rise

      10 months ago

      It's been a tad while and here I had made a promise to myself to post more often. At least only one month has gone by and not several! Improvement!

      I blame turning 30. Memory lapses and such. HAHA!

      It was weird, realizing that I was not going to be in my twenties any more. I'd been so for a good ten years, after all. But at the same time.....I just didn't care. I do believe I can say what epitomizes turning thirty (at least for me) is this feeling. Not that it doesn't matter, but .....it just doesn't matter. I didn't freak out. I just accepted it and said "ok, cool."

      The closer I got to this age, the more relaxed I became with life. I wasn't so intense about screaming "BUT WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!?!?"

      Not to say that I don't become introspective and curious; I do. There is a time for such things. There is also a time to just stop cogitating and enjoy what you've been given.

      Oh how I've been given so much.

      That's really the point of why I wanted to write. Right before my birthday on the 8th, I went back and read through many of the journals that I previously posted (that I didn't end up erasing in a fit of pique...). I started writing here when I was 19. The mind boggles.

      The last ten years have been out of this world and many of you have had a part of it. The first time I met an internet friend outside of the internet. The mail I received from some of you that always made my day. The late night chats on msn. The phone calls at weird hours because I had a bad experience I had to talk through. Or the phone calls on a long trip because I was tired and couldn't stay awake while driving. The first time I truly started to fall for someone special. The many, many crazy conversations that entertained, encouraged, and sustained me through a myriad of insane situations, from college finals to moving to Asia out of the blue. You all have been here in some form or another.....even when my presence became scarce.

      The depth of my gratitude makes me a little breathless.

      I say this with as much sincerity as I have in my body: I love and appreciate every single one of you. You are magical and wonderful. Thank you for being you. Thank you for being a part of my life and for helping make these last 10 years so damn awesome.

      May the next 10 years be just as full of great food, great company, and great adventures!

      <3

      Deployment wife is an antsy wife

      11 months ago

      Seriously, though.

      I don't know how my grandparents managed not to go nuts missing each other, not having the communication technology that we do now.

      The upside to deployment?
      1) Not having to shave my legs everyday. And yes, I live in Hawaii. I don't even care.
      2) Control of the quantity of bedsheets with which I am covered.
      3) .......I was sure I had a third. Less cooking maybe? But that's also on the con list cause I get into the habit of peanut butter sandwiches everyday and nobody likes that. NOBODY.

      The people with whom I wreak havoc in the world of Destiny help to keep my spirits up. And if you have a PS4, shoot me a tell and I'll add you. My Warlock is to dieeeeee for......or whose hand you will die by, if you happen to be in the crosshairs of my beloved Icebreaker. ;)

      My Titan and Hunter aren't anything to scoff at either, but they aren't my favorites and they know it, the poor darlings.

      In my last bit of 'only in Angela-land' news, my Andrew and I are in the midst of a debate that I dare not remind him of at this date, because Mardi Gras was yesterday. Why should this date matter? Because I told him that in my home the Christmas tree never came down until after Fat Tuesday. Tradition? Not really. It just kind of became one due to laziness, but by heaven, I am sticking to it.

      He keeps telling me to take down our Christmas tree. I keep saying no. We'll see how long I can hold out.

      I don't know why it means so much to me, but it's a game I'm going to win, damn it.

      Ta-ta for now lovelies!

      Sad news from old friends you barely speak to anymore still has the power to wrench your heart. You were a part of me for a very long time, RT, and I was always able to turn to you at every crisis during those very formative years.

      I hurt for you now. I wish I could extend anything at all to make it better. All I have to give is my love and condolences.

      Missed it AGAIN

      1 year ago

      Hopefully I'll be better at keeping up with anniversaries with my husband, cause I'm obviously bad at it with this site.

      TEN YEARS, FOLKS.

      I was still a teenager when I joined. Lawd. O.O

      I am and am not sorry that I haven't been so active on here anymore. I still love you precious people. Life is just preoccupying--especially when you're in your first year of marriage and the military has planted your butt in Hawaii. It's distracting. More than slightly. ;)

      In other news, finding a job here has proven to be more difficult than I imagined. I'd appreciate any good juju that you can send me in that area.

      When not job searching, I'm remarkably talented at cooking, beach lounging, fighting over apartment decor with the hubs, gaming and rereading every book that I own now that they're out of storage (oh gloriousness!).

      Life isn't crazy, but it's not boring.

      Update: COMPLETE. Aren't you glad? ^.^

      Sometimes being a military wife has its perks.

      The not so awesome: husband is deployed and won't be back til August. /sigh

      If y'all ever make it out to O'ahu, send me a yell. I've not been here long, but I've started to explore more. I'm always up for an adventure. :)

It's a time for peace on Earth, and hopefully for the room to stop spinning. Thanks again for another great year here at Screen Gems, that's 5 in all, can you believe it?! Now that's a reason to celebrate!

      Look at how gorgeous your photos are!! It's like a permanent holiday! And you're getting fit and tanned too, which is always important. The opposite of life here for me! smiley1.gif

      You know, this is probably as close as you'll come to my side of the world - au should pop up for a visit and say hi!! smiley0.gif

      I'd have to say that I'm fairly envious of you and the life you're leading right now. I really wanna do what you're doing, but I've also got a million other ideas that I wanna try out and I can't really decide which one's the best right now. Oh wells.

      So I'm guessin' that by now you're lovin' your Asian roots, eh? Course, it's as plain as the nose on my face, so why do I even bother asking? Just cuz I like pointin' out the obvious.

    • Zeke

      5 years ago

      I miss them too, but you can always find me right here. And if I ever leave, I will always leave a trail for you to follow.

      I understand about having the pressure of keeping up. But you do what you got to do to stay close. Scott, Justin and I just started Warcraft together and have signed over all our free time to the game. The game is fun enough and I'm sure it will get more interesting as time goes on and we lvl up, but I'm more thrilled that all 3 of us are back together in some fashion at least. That doesn't happen often outside of Christmas, so it's been a real treat.

      You're a good person, and very easy to adore. I wouldn't worry that people will start to dislike you. I don't think its possible. And life does get in the way and its that every where you look. I'm just glad you find your way back here still. smiley12.gif
