I started off in a good mood this morning. I read some nice fic, had some chai tea, painted my nails two-toned black and turquoise. I also had yummy leftovers from yesterday's lunch with Aunt Judy at T.G.I.Friday's. But, as the day went on, it became a downer.

I got really bored and had trouble finding interesting things to do. It's normally not too bad because I hang out with DJ every day, but he's been feeling kind of sick, so I haven't seen him the past couple days. I would have gone to see the Scott Pilgrim movie today with[livejournal.com profile] immelmanturn (as she had obtained passes and invited me along), but I didn't have any way of getting to the downtown screening. Then, I learned that the Takuya Angel store on Takeshita Dori is closing. This makes me sad because I had fond memories of shopping there. I even had a nice time talking to Takuya Angel the last time I shopped in the store. This is the second time one of my favorite places in Japan has closed since I left (the first to close was B:Lily-rose). I hear that the website will still be open for shopping, but it's not the same as being able to go to the store. I know it's stupid and unrealistic, but I almost feel like I don't want Japan to change when I'm not there. I want to be able to go back to all of my favorite places the next time I go.

There is a small bright spot though. Grandma has been released from the hospital and put into a physical rehabilitation facility. It's temporary, so she can regain her strength before going home. So, she's not home yet, but it's progress.

I'm sure I'll be fine tomorrow. I just need to find something to do tonight. Maybe I'll go watch a movie. That's always a good way to occupy some time.

Bonfire at Allison's house was kind of filled with bad luck last night. It was supposed to be something really fun before Alyssa left for her study abroad in Greece. Then, Allison and Alyssa ended up having to go with Jessica to take Ilene to the hospital. She was nauseous, running a high fever, had intense lower back pain, and was feeling tingling up and down her legs. After Ilene was admitted to the hospital, Allison and Alyssa came back. Allison (who is a nursing student) was in a state of rage at the treatment they had gotten at the hospital, which apparently involved leaving Ilene rolling in pain on the waiting room floor, for over an hour, after she had initially been examined and was waiting to be admitted. From what I heard today, they then pumped her full of antibiotics and sent her home. I hope she's doing better today because she had all of us worried.

I found out this morning that Kristi will not be living with the rest of us next year. She decided that moving back to Alabama would be best for her current mental state, while she's trying to figure out what to do with her future. She kind of had a breakdown after graduation, so I think that this is probably a good idea for her, even though we'll miss her. I'm guessing that Alie will be taking her place in the house next school year, instread of just moving in for the summer.

And now, today I keep thinking about my future and what I'm going to do. It seems that all the adults and even some of my friends keep talking about recently is how by this time next year I'll have graduated. And honestly, that prospect terrifies me. As to what I'm going to do after graduation, I have a plan or two, but I'm still terrified about things not working out. I should stop thinking about it because it's just making me more upset right now.

All of these combined factors have not made today particularly pleasant so far. I'm going to go try and find something to read or watch for distraction purposes.

So, my mother tells me now that if she and dad had better understood my reasons for wanting to spend a second semester in Japan, they probably would have let me stay. Gee, Mom. Thanks a lot. Thanks for deciding that now. I don't mean to sound ungrateful about being home and about everything my parents do for me, but that makes me very frustrated. I feel like I left Japan too soon. I still had more that I wanted to do there and I know my Japanese would have improved even more if I had been able to stay. I guess it's no use thinking about what could have been now, but it still leaves me feeling unhappy.

Well, that was a fucking epic failure. The weather was gorgeous today, so my friends and I decided to have our own cookout/picnic. It started out fine, but then the charcoal we had wouldn't light, and we ended up needing to go get more. Then part of the group started getting really bitchy. I was one of the few people who wasn't crabby and short tempered. It sucked. It could have been a really nice day otherwise.

On the bright side, this icon makes me lol.

On the even brighter side, my friends and I officially have a townhouse to live in for next year! I'm excited about it!

My body has felt off all day. Damn this time of the month.

In other news, omg it's finally election day! I've already done my part by voting early, so now I'm just anxiously awaiting the results. I've been proudly wearing my "I Voted for Change" sticker all day.

Am feeling kind of depressed today. I don't even know why.
