I have been a horrible blogger – what with ignoring this blog for over 2 months now… However a bunch has been going on for me. In mid-June, my family moved from our home of 16.5 years into a new house. Packing and unpacking took forever, but I’m happy to say that I’m happily settled into the new house (my Morning Musume calendar and framed autographs have a home on my new wall – that’s the most important thing, right? XD).
Hopefully come September I’ll get back into blogging here. The reason I say September is because as of… well later today, I’m off for a 3 week vacation to……. JAPAN and the Philippines!!!
I am super excited. I’m doing a week in Japan with my brother before we head to the Philippines for our Aunt and Uncle’s 50th wedding anniversary and a huge family reunion.
Japan is looking to be awesome: I arrive there on Saturday, and on Sunday I will be attending the afternoon Hello! Project Summer concert.
I’m quite excited to see what will be on the setlist. During the song voting period a few months ago for the summer concerts, I voted for Morning Musume’s “Otome no Shinrigaku” from the album Second Morning as a Aichan and Risa duet… The possibility of that is so minute, but seriously, wouldn’t that be the most awesome thing ever? If you don’t know which song I’m talking about, check out Maki and Nacchi from the MM Tanjou 10nen Kinentai concert:
My brother is going to try to get to an AKB show that day, so I may try and get tickets to the evening summer concert.
Through the week, johpan and I will be wandering Tokyo and take possible day trips to Yokohama and Kamakura. But the 2nd major highlight of my trip will be a day trip to Osaka to see….. BUONO!!!
2 H!P concerts to attend during my week in Japan! This is a 9 year old dream finally coming true! I’ve wanted to see a Hello! Project concert in Japan ever since I got into Morning Musume back in 2001.
The 2 bummers about the trip are that I am missing a concert by Angela Aki by 3 days, and I’m missing the start of Arashi’s concert tour by about 8 days (though the chance of getting to see Arashi without selling a limb would have been slim anyway).
So, that’s what’s been up with me recently… When I get back I should have lots to write about. Maybe I’ll do some updating while I’m on my trip, but we’ll see how busy it gets. For now, I bid you all a good summer, and a big thank you to any of my readers who still read this blog! <33
