It was working fine till I tried to open the page I wanted to print out for tmrw’s class…

Now it says session time out :/
One more reason to wake up extra early tomorrow!

Average Sleeping Hour…

January 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

It has been a pretty busy week for me.
I am going to bed soon, yet I started thinking about my sleeping hour. I will be happy if I can sleep by 2am today. I set my alarm at 8am, and I will get 6hrs of sleep. I heard 8hr-sleep is the best for humans, but I tends to sleep less on weekdays and sleep 10+hs on weekends. I do not think it is healthy, but that is how I have been doing last decade or so. I noticed that I have hard time waking up early last couple years though… I think when I was 20, I had no problem waking up 5am after the 5hs of sleep. Hmm… getting old?

Target Zebra Bath Towel

January 24, 2011 § Leave a comment

I went to Target for little shopping with my gift cards 🙂

I own one zebra patterned towel from Target and really like it, so I decided to get another one. It was folded, and I just grabbed it into my cart.

A few hours after I got home, I noticed their pattern changed:( I was expected to get exactly the same one; so, I am kinda bombed. The one on the right is my old one. I am not going to return this, but I like my old one better.

Well, I leaned a lesson: Open and check what you buy, even it is the same price and the same brand.

My First Lightroom Edited Photo

This is my first lightroom edited photo.

Near Sunset

I checked out one tutorial, how to fix lens distortion, and I distorted my photo! It was really easy to use!

Photo is from last Sunday, when one of my friend took me to a beach for my birthday. I love beaches!


I also made a pdf slide for my dad to show my other families our Miyazaki house (where I grew up).

Hello World!

January 20, 2011 § Leave a comment

This is my first post!
This morning I couldn’t sleep at all, even though I knew it was the first day of spring semester at my college and needed some sleep. Instead, I was thinking about starting a blog… I got probably two-hour sleep max.

Little about me…

English is the second language for me. I have been here for over 5 years now, but I am still learning it. It is a difficult language with many irregulars. In short, I just wanted to tell you that my English will be awkward sometimes. I am not good at my first language, Japanese, either. It was always my lowest grade class. I guess I am not good at writing in any language. (I love to talk though!)

Being said that, I am majoring in Journalism and Media Studies at a four year college, and I am graduating this May. I am interested in different industries, and I cannot decide what I really wanna do. This blog is actually my way of figuring that out.

As I noted above, I did not get enough sleep and really wanted to go to bed right after I got home… yet I felt I have to start this today. January 20th. Today is the day. Three years ago, I had my birthday party this day. My best friend from Japan met my American friend there, and two years later they are married on this day. I will remember this day forever.

Happy 1st Anniversary to them… and Happy Birthday to this blog.

"Happy Birthday"

Where Am I?
