House of Blues 80's Night

The band I liked, they played such awesome songs :D

So yesterday, me and my sister got to go to the House of Blues randomly. How did that work out? Well, my cousin had these 2 tickets to go but I'm guessing she couldn't go or something, not sure...so she ended up asking my mom if we wanted them. She said it was going to be "80s Night" and me and my sister thought sure, might as well. My mom said to take a break from school work so I took her advice. We ended up driving out to Anaheim to the Downtown Disney where House of Blues. It was pretty awesome because on our way there we saw the Disneyland fireworks from the freeway :D It was so pretty *__* Anywho, this was totally a different experience because I have never been to the House of Blues. We came when this one band was playing, don't remember their name, but they sounded super good. The first song we heard when walking in was "Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds which was an awesome way to start the night :] He also sang "You Spin Me Round" by Dead or Alive, "Take on Me" by A-ha which is one of my favorite songs :D I love dancing to that song on the Wii lol. I wish I could remember that band's name -___- They were really good and full of energy, I had a lot of fun :] They played a lot of good songs, I just don't remember them all. I loved it because it was 80s songs with a rock flare to it ;D

The band after them was okay, the vocalist was a girl and seemed to be more preoccupied with her trying to look cute than sound good. She was literally talking about how cute/hot she was -_____- Also, her voice was nothing special either, so after the first band this really put a damper on my happiness. The band members were awesome, especially the guitarist. AMAZING. The vocalist just really messed it up for them :/ I tried to block out her singing to enjoy the music but didn't work so much. My older sister also thought the same thing I did. Pretty lame, but then afterwards we went to eat at ESPN Zone where it has food and an arcade. Would have taken a picture of the place and food but totally forgot >_< I know, I'm a horrible blogger. I just had a delicious bacon burger lol. It was hard to eat because of my piercings though :[ Wish they could heal faster T-T lol.

Overall, it was a chill night :] I was so tired, I knocked out in the car lol. I went to bed around 1:30am which isn't too late but it was way past my bedtime since lately I go to bed around 10:30pm or 11pm the latest because I have to get up at 5:40am/6:00am to go to my Math class. Math that early in the morning is torture.

Older sister playing Guitar Hero :]

Blast from the Past!


So I was browsing on Tumblr, when I came across this picture and completely went down memory lane as I remembered I had this manga from when I was little. I hurried and searched in a box that contains old anime/manga stuff and found my comics :3 These Sailor Moon comic books were the first comic books I ever read/owned in my life. I don't remember how old I was, maybe 3rd or 4th grade when I got them. And the funny thing was that I found these in the most weirdest store. Believe it or not, I found these in a little package at "Toys R' US"! Yeah, I still wonder what comic books were doing at a toy store but I guess it can make sense? lol. This was a total random post but I had to share it. Sailor Moon = my childhood. And it's funny because me and Monica were actually talking about this the other day xD

Who was your favorite sailor scout? When I was really little I liked Sailor Venus and Jupiter but when I got a little bit older I ended up liking Sailor Neptune and Saturn. Mostly Saturn (Hotaru) though because I could relate to her a lot :] I always liked the outer scouts for some reason.

My Angel Bites Piercing.

Updated photo [old photo here]

Alright, so here is a picture of my angel bites (double monroes, double beauty marks, etc.) As you can see I am bumming it in my hoodie and stuff and did not feel like getting decent for a picture so I just blocked out my face haha. You can see my eyebrow is fugly O_o Haven't gotten them done in FOREVER D:  and my hair is brown now, the red is fading :[ lol okay enough talking crap. So anyways, I am like 99% of the time not wearing makeup because I am always home, but that is not counting school lol. For some reason I have to get decent when I go out, or at least at school because I know the people. I went to the tattoo place without makeup because I just got out of the shower. Okay, so on to what happened! I broke it down into parts if there was only some stuff you wanted to read and didn't want to read the whole novel lol.


BEFORE GETTING THE PIERCING
So, I went to this place called Laughing Buddha that is somewhat near my house. The piercers received good reviews so I thought I'd go for it. I could have gone to the Upland mini mall to get them done but we are talking about piercings on my face! There was no way I was not going to a professional, I would not want it to get infected or something for me being cheap! So we went there, and the waiting took a while since a guy was there before us. But when it was my turn I was surprisingly not nervous. I was nervous on the way there but when I was actually there no nervousness at all. I kinds thought it was surreal that I was even getting them. It's still hard to believe that I got them done. The guy who pierced them was super cool, stretched ears, lots of piercings and tats. He was also friendly so that helped the process. After getting my piercings done I am definitely happy. It obviously looks weird because the bars are much longer than they should be due to the fact that I should be swelling and small piercings would make the healing process difficult and uncomfortable. 

DURING/AFTER THE PIERCING
Pain wise? Surprisngly didn't hurt. The first one at least, I barely felt anything! I was surprised but super happy :] The second one hurt though, it was a kinda "ow, fuck!" pain lol. Obviously couldn't say that since the needle was in my lip. But it was super awesome, the piercer switched them really quick to the point when I didn't even know when he switched from the needle to the jewelery. My eyes watered a bit but that's expected. I kinda felt dizzy after the second one though and had to lay down a bit. Everything was starting to get black and my hearing got muffled (signs of passing out). I wasn't surprised since it's two piercings on the face. I had a protein shake but I probably should have had a meal :/ Protein shakes usually are more filling than meals to me but since the guy before us took longer than expected the shake went down quickly. I think he was getting sick or dizzy too because the girl he was with came and got water twice. I wasn't sure what he got pierced but yeah. I felt much better after they gave me a candy  and laid down :] I talked to the piecer a bit about tattoos while I waited for me to finish eating the candy just in case. 

PAIN SCALE/SWELLING/PARENTS REACTION
So overall it was awesome. Pain scale for me with hurting, was probably a 1 out of 5 with the first one, 2 out of 5 with the second. So I guess 1.5 out of 5 altogether if I were to rate it. It is sore now though, it hurts to laugh or smile really big which is expected lol. No swelling as of yet, one of them was a bit but now they are just chillen' there with no swelling lol. Who knows about tomorrow though lol. I actually felt kinda bad because my mom was super sad that I got them :/ Even though we made the deal and she didn't mind, she really got sad because she sees it as it ruining my face. I don't want to make her sad, I love her a lot but this was something I really wanted. I haven't seen my dad but he is probably going to talk shit and say how ugly I look. Need to prepare myself for that -__- Also, nobody knows I got the angel bite besides my family and you guys who read my blog :3 lol but that means a lot of people are going to be shocked/surprised when they see me.

PRICING
It cost $105 to get it pierced. I know, A LOT. But like I said, I was willing to drop the money for something on my face. That was with the piercing, jewelry, and the aftercare so it may still be a lot but they went out of their way to show everything was sterilized and to make sure I was comfortable. So I think it was worth it.

Well that's all :D If you guys have any questions just ask me below, did this in depth for those who want to know more about facial piercings/lip piercings/angel bites. Will probably post another picture when I am actually looking decent, though I am not a photo person to begin with so who knows when that will be lol and when the bars are smaller, though I don't think you guys can tell in the picture. It is very noticeable in person though O_o lol, perks of body modification. I wonder what people will think of me at church tomorrow LOL

CNBLUE and FTISLAND Light Sticks


Eeeeek :D Super excited, because I received my CNBLUE and FTISLAND light sticks in the mail that I got from Kpoptown :D I am super excited lol. The CNBLUE is crazy bright as you can see in the picture, I just love both of them. 

I also received the tickets in the mail yesterday so it's like everything is coming together. Definitely making me more excited! March 9th, it's so close yet so far lol. The FTISLAND one came in a little FTISLAND package, while the CNBLUE was just in a little plastic wrap, but they were still in great condition and everything. I got these for a little over $10 each.T

he JYJ ones were way more expensive so I passed on those. The shipping was expensive :/ But I wanted to make sure I got if before the concert and I wanted to track it. Which was good I did! I find out it was stuck in customs for week!! Stupid customs. 

Anywho, really excited as I keep stating lol. Still no luck in selling my Jin Akanishi ticket but I just accepted the fact that I won't sell it :[ This one girl was interested but I took a week to reply back because Facebook didn't let me know I had a new message. It wasn't till I clicked to clean out some old message that I saw it :/ Just my luck. Oh well, I joke that I am going to attempt to go to both of the concerts LOL I wish.

Oh, did I mention I got the tickets where my seat is going to be in pit? Fuck yes :D Super close to my babies<3 haha. So excited, CANNOT WAIT!

たったひとつの恋 & Getting my Angel Bites Piercing :D


Been super happy with lately, not because anything good has happened but since I got by Tatta Hitotsu no Koi DVDs I have been watching the drama non-stop. I forgot how much I loved it. It's just so perfect. Lol I love Kame's character Hiroto, and Kame is just gorgeous. 

When I watch my favorite dramas I just tend to get happier and drift away to a non-existent world, lol. I'm in a relationship with dramas haha. But yeah, I already finished it. Makes me tempted to buy more dramas but I CAN'T. Already spent a shit load of money on the FT ISLAND/CNBLUE concert ticket. AND BIGBANG is having a world tour!!!! So if they come to LA, I will be even more broke. And, I still have to see AM2's GOH to see if they will have any good Japanese artists coming. 

SO MUCH MONEY! Why does everything revolve around money? :[ Well, nothing much has been happening besides school. So much reading this semester, I need to catch up with all of it. I probably won't be having anything awesome coming up until the concert in March which I'm super excited for.

Oohhh!! But in some news, I almost totally forgot lol. Just tonight, me, my older sister, and mom and dad all went to eat at Johnny Carino's. While we were out, we were having a nice time talking about lots of stuff. One of the things that came up was a piercing that I really want. 

Again those of you who follow on my Twitter probably already know that I have been what I am talking about. (I have been using my Twitter a crap load lately) But anyways, I have been wanting angel bites. 

I wanted to convince my parents that getting a piercing is not as bad as a tattoo because it's not permanent and I could always take it out. They usually don't care but this time they were actually listening a bit more. Probably because I had my older sister to back me up and support me. 

Long story short, they ended up agreeing to letting me get them :DD BUT, in exchange they said I had to go to church every Sunday with them until I leave for the university and I had to go on this church retreat where they preach about I don't even know what. 

I am against religion, I believe in God, but do not believe in religion. I also do not believe in sins or the bible or church so that gives you more of an idea. But since I want the piercing so bad I agreed, I'm hoping I can sneak my ipod and hide my headphones in my hair like I used to when I went to church lol. Listening to people preaching won't be so bad as long as my parents don't start forcing me to convert and believe.

I am planning to get them ASAP before they change their mind. I don't think they would change their mind if I start going to church because my mom wants me to be "saved" but I think if I wait too long and go to church and take long with getting the piercing then they will probably change their mind. So, I am going to try to get them this week or next week? Like I said, ASAP. So we'll see.

Angel bites are the ones above the lip
