Thursday was the drama festival at my base school. All the different classes put on plays. It was up to the kids to write the play and do the costumes, scenery, props, and lighting. It was fun to see what they came up with. The plays included everything from three different versions of Snow White, a serious piece about the war in Okinawa, and Home Alone, to The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Ikemen Paradise, and Roman Holiday. I basically spent all day at work watching the performances.

I had work today, even though it was a Saturday, because we had an open class day (so that the parents could come in an see their students' classes). I don't have any classes at my base school on Mondays because every other week or so I have to teach at my low level school on Monday. So I didn't have anything to do at work today, but I had to be there anyways because I didn't want to use one of my paid vacation days. The day was really boring, but it was made better after work when I met up with Kaille and Leslie in Harajuku. We ate dinner at an all you can eat pasta buffet and then went shopping so that we can all wear yukata tomorrow at Sanja Matsuri. Definitely looking forward to it!

I've also been listening to Adam Lambert's new album Trespassing ever since I bought it on Wednesday. It seemed like it tossk forever for this album to come out, but it was totally worth the wait! As much as I love For Your Entertainment, Trespassing is a more cohesive album. It's got a nice balance between dance songs and slower, meaningful songs. I've basically been dancing around my apartment to it all week. "Pop That Lock" and "Shady" are my jams~

This past week has also been pretty low-key. Not a lot of assignments and not a lot of plans.

I finished reading Gail Carriger's Blameless on Thursday. Her books are always so lovely! They're fun and amusing and make me want to curl up with a nice cup of tea. I enjoyed BlamelessSpoiler spoiler spoiler ) I can't wait for Heartless to come out this summer. I tweeted that I had enjoyed the book and was looking forward to the next book, and Gail Carriger actually replied to me tweet and thanked me for the compliment! The fact that she had acknowledged my tweet pretty much made my day and I tweeted about that as well. She then replied to my tweet again and said she was glad to be of service. It put a smile on my face.

On Friday night I got together with [livejournal.com profile] immelmanturn. We hadn't had much time to hang out recently, so we had a lot to catch up on. She rented the projector from Collins and we watched Adam Lambert's concert DVD, projected on the wall of her apartment. And had all of the fangirling for about 12 hours straight (a lot of it about Adam, and Sara also shared some bandom stuff with me). We didn't get to bed at about 6 AM. I thought it was pretty impressive. We also baked cookies and failed at baking cinnamon buns the next day.

Had a nice long phone conversation with [livejournal.com profile] stellawind tonight, as it had been a bit since we'd last talked. It sounds like she's going to be visiting next weekend, so I'm happy! It gives me something to look forward to, amidst all the schoolwork that's going to start cropping up soon.

Classes today weren't bad. My International Studies classes seem like they will hopefully be interesting. Japanese seems like it will be challenging and hard work, but it generally is every year. J301 is going to be a lot of work, but I'm going to keep trying hard.

Now I'm just looking forward tomorrow night. It's Glam Nation, Part 2! I'm so excited to see Adam perform again. And thanks to some last minute plans Alie and [livejournal.com profile] immelmanturn are now going to the concert, too! I also get to see [livejournal.com profile] stellawind for the first time in months. This whole concert experience is what's going to get me through this week.

This post contains some introspective fangirling that gets kind of mushy. It's actually kind of embarrassing because I usually try to contain my hardcore fangirling for the proper place and time, so I'm putting this behind a cut.

Embarrassing amounts of love inside. )

On Thursday night, DJ and I went over to Alex's going away party. (She's leaving for her freshman year of college this weekend.) Chris brought his dog Moose, an adorable Bernese Mountain Dog puppy, over for a while. We spent part of the time outside, looking at the beautiful stars and trying to watch the meteor shower. I spent a little while dipping my feet in the hottub with Chris. DJ and I also gave Alex the present we made for her. We had bought some cute black fabric, with rainbow stars on it, and sewed her a few small pillows for her dorm room. We ended up sneaking into her room while she was at the party and leaving the pillows on her bed for her to find. She found them later in the night and was quite happy with them. I was so glad she liked them. Some of us ended up hanging out inside later because the mosquitoes were getting pretty bad. So naturally we ended up in a group in the kitchen talking with Tyra. And then Clay pulled me over to swing dance with him right before we left, which I enjoyed. DJ and I said our goodbyes to Alex before we left. She's such a sweetheart. I'm sure she'll do just fine at college.

And in super exciting news from last night, [livejournal.com profile] stellawind and I purchased tickets to go to Adam Lambert's Indianapolis concert on the 31st! This is a seated concert, so I know I won't have as good of a view as the GA concert last time (though our seats should still be decent), but I couldn't resist anyways. It should still be worth it to see Adam again~

Last night, I bought a ticket to go see Adam Lambert! [livejournal.com profile] immelmanturn and I are gonna go to his concert in Hammond, IN next month. I'm so excited! I feel like I'm going to have to amp up my wardrobe with more glitter for the occasion.

Today is DJ's 21st birthday, so tonight we're celebrating. We're going to get as much of the group together as we can and spend the night in (cause that's what DJ wanted). I predict that it will most likely involve booze, games, and movies. It should be a good time, so I'm looking forward to it.

Until then, I plan on lazing around some more and reading more Gundam 00 fanfic or possibly watching some more anime.
