I move to Fairfax on Thursday. I'm pretty broke and incredibly stressed. I'm trying to keep calm but I'm worried about money for bills and food. I wish Malcolm could help at all but he's working hours that are practically unsafe for money and he can't even come for some housewarming even though he knows that's really important to me. I understand that he can't afford gas but it still upsets me.

I've started to become incredibly disillusioned by livejournal so I'm going to set this up as a back up that will likely become my main journal eventually, especially since dreamwidth can crosspost to lj.

I don't let people push me around anymore. When I was younger, I basically would just go along with whatever was suggested regardless of what I felt about it. Now, I will speak up and make my opinion known if I feel strongly about it. And I have an attitude now, which isn't necessarily the best,

I think I'd be on cloud nine. I really hated my life when I was 12 because I had basically no friends and my family was falling apart. Now, I have the best friends and sorority sisters, my family is stable and caring, and generally, my life is pretty good. I never would have seen this coming at 12.

Yeah. Thankfully, my name is fairly common so unless I google something else specific to me, like where I'm from, all I get is a bunch of basketball players. None of whom are me.

I've had two breakups in the past, both of which were very, very messy.

The first one, I do not keep in touch with at all. I know nothing of how his life may or may not be going. He was a stalker anyhow so I'm glad to be rid of him.

The second one, I talk to once every few weeks. Since we had been dating for a long time, it was harder to just cut him out, not for lack of trying. He was not very pleased about the relationship ending and made it know rather nastily for a long time.

Ah well. I'm better off now.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I'll probably go to midnight mass, but what I'm looking forward to is helping my parents wrap Santa's presents for my little sister!

title: Hello & Goodbye
artist: Kondou Kaoru

Hajimaranai you ni... owaranai you ni...
Migi e nara e shiteta ano koro
Kimi no koe ni mimi wo fusai de zutto amayadori shiteta


It's no use...constantly like that
Understanding what was before, understanding in case others force you toward it
All along, hearing your voice forces others to take shelter from the rain

Hashitta koto nai GARASU no RANNAA ga
Hadashi no RANNAA wo waratte iru
Kimi no koe ni mimi wo muketara sotto fuan mo toketa


A glass runner with no experience
is laughing at a barefoot runner.
Listening to you, uncertainties were gently dissolved

Doujou de tsutsunda kotoba yori tanjun na yasashisa de nakeru yo

Simple tenderness makes me cry rather than the words wrapped in sympathy.

SAY HELLO, SAY GOOD-BYE warawarete mo ii yo
Zutto SAY HELLO, SAY GOOD-BYE
Bokura ga deaeta imi ni
Unazuite hanikande dakishimete aruite yukou


SAY HELLO, SAY GOODBYE – It’s ok to be laughed at
All along SAY HELLO, SAY GOODBYE
Nodding, being shy, and embracing one another
Let's walk together to the meaning of our encounters

'Ohayou' to waratte 'arigatou' to naite
Nanigenaku nomikomu shiawase
Takara sagashi ketobasanu you ni konna soba ni aru MY LIFE


"Good morning" I say laughing, "thank you" I say crying
Unintentionally learning happiness
I live my life searching for treasures, hoping that something will be around the next corner.

Kanjou wo osaete warau yori doudouto namida wo nagashitai

Controlling this feeling, rather than laughing, we’d like to let the tears flow.

SAY HELLO, SAY GOOD-BYE koronde mo ii no sa
Kyou mo SAY HELLO, SAY GOOD-BYE
Kutsuhimo wo shimetara sugu ni
Mune hatte tsuyogatte nandodemo tachiagarou


SAY HELLO, SAY GOODBYE - I don't mind this variation
Again this day - SAY HELLO, SAY GOODBYE
Tying my shoes,
thinking with interest many times, I stand up

SAY HELLO, SAY GOOD-BYE koronde mo ii no sa
Kyou mo SAY HELLO, SAY GOOD-BYE warawarete mo ii yo
Zutto SAY HELLO, SAY GOOD-BYE
Bokura ga deaeta imi ni
Unazuite hanikande mune hatte tsuyogatte


SAY HELLO, SAY GOODBYE - I don't mind this variation
Again this day - SAY HELLO, SAY GOODBYE It’s ok to be laughed at
All along SAY HELLO, SAY GOODBYE
Nodding, being shy, and embracing one another in the meaning I encounter

Nandodemo nandodemo kurikaeshi kurikaeshi
Unazuite hanikande dakishimete aruite yukou


Any number of times...repeatedly...
Nodding, being shy, let's walk together to the meaning of our encounters

Found the translation of Birthday (by Aozu). I may try and translate it myself and see how close I get.


title: BIRTHDAY - ARUKI HAJIMETA HI
artist: Aozu

Isoide mo asette mo karamawari
Yume nante awatete sagasu MON ja nai
Hito no tame Dare no tamette WAKE ja naku
Tada jibun no iro de egakeba ii


Worries or impatience are futile
Things like dreams cannot be hastily found
Not for other people, nor for someone else
Just paint it with your own colors

Motto daten de Wagamama de Aimai de kamawanai sa
Kitto seikai wa Hitotsu ja nai
Bankai wa itsu ni nattatte Sou dekiru!


It's fine to be more daring, be more whimsy, be more ambiguous
Surely there is not just one correct answer
You can restore it any time, it is possible

Hitotsu Hitotsu omoi wo BAASUDEI KEEKI ni tomosou
Itsuka ooki na hikari ni natte
Terashidasu sa It's your dreams
Suki ni nareru koto kara
Shippai wo osorezu ni yukou
Arukihajimeta Sono hi no kimi e
Happy Birthday to you


Each and every one of our feelings,
Like the candle flame on the birthday cake
Will become a great light some day
Illuminating It's your dream
Starting with the things you like, go forward without fear for failure
To you on the day you take the first step of this journey
Happy Birthday to you

Zasetsu shite nayanderu hito ga ita
Uwabe dake no kotoba de hagemashitatte
Hontou no yasashisa wa onaji dake
Kanashimi wo seowanakya wakarani


Getting frustrated, being troubled, every one have experienced these
Shallow words of encouragements
Are just the same as true kindness
Those who had never born sadness will not understand

Motto kantan de Aru ga mama de Donkan de kamawanai sa
Kitto koukai wa Saki ni konai
Nan datte tsumekondatte Sugu wasureru!


It's fine to be simpler, be more frank, be less sensitive
Surely regrets will not come in the future
As I wrap them up and forget about them immediately!

Itsumo Itsumo tanoshii koto Bakari ja nakute mo ii sa
Koeteikanakya kawaranai koto
Kanarazu kuru brand new days
Muchuu ni nareru KOTO ga
Taisetsu na MONO ni natte yuku
Umarekawatta Sono hi no kimi e
Happy Birthday to you


It's okay even if things cannot always and forever be happy
Things that cannot be changed unless we overcome them
Surely brand new days will come
The fact that you were absorbed in something whole-heartedly
Make it an important thing for yourself
To you on the day you're born
Happy Birthday to you

Kazoekirenai hodo no Deai to wakare no naka de
Kurikaesu mainichi ga Kinenbi ni naru
Kitto soko ni wa Itsumo
Sou egao ga afureteru


In the almost countless times of encounters and farewells
Amongst the repeating days, make this a memorial day
Surely in here, no matter when
Yes, it'll be full of smiling faces

Hitotsu Hitotsu omoi wo BAASUDEI KEEKI ni tomosou
Hito fuki shitara kiechau nante
Mada tarenainda your dreams
Suki ni nareru koto kara
Shippai wo osorezu ni yukou
Arukihajimeta Sono hi no kimi e
Happy Birthday to you


Each and every one of our feelings
Like the candle flame on the birthday cake
If they get blow out in just one breath
It's still not enough, your dreams
Starting with the things you like, go forward without fear for failure
To you on the day you take the first step of this journey
Happy Birthday to you
