Good Things that Happened to You!!!

Chihiro Yonekura's acoustic birthday live today.

The person sitting next to me today was someone who I previously met at Aira Yuuki's live last November.

Couldn't find my hat upon leaving the hotel, rechecked the room then walked back to the station, and it was sitting on a fence near a pedestrian crossing that I had used yesterday.

^Wow! That is lucky! Maybe you should wish for a million dollars or something. lol

I got to see my lovely niece, brother in law, brother sister and my Aunt Gail this weekend at our church's festival. Hopefully we did well to raise money, but it was so dead when I got there yesterday and it was so nice out too! Usually we have crappy weather this time of year. I do like the fall though, not too cold, not too warm either. Let's see this week: Dancing with the stars (usually don't care about but since Lindsey Stirling is on it, I will watch this season) starts tomorrow, Hannah's show is on too, Tuesday Gabbie Hanna's book comes out!!! Squee! I might go to my brother's on Wed. The following week: going to meet Gabbie again, or see her again I guess and get a signed book (I will have 4 then) and give her some of my poems, since it is a poetry book. She is an extremely talented youtuber that has a song out called Out Loud. It's really good. Oh and she is hosting TRL too. Then Princess Principal's ost comes out! And I will see my niece and her parents again! It will be a pretty great rest of the month.

Also just started watching Con Man. It's hilarious. Alan Tudyk created it and it has a bunch of people in it. It's really funny. That's all for now.

I went to my favourite noodles place but couldn't finish my meal, so I went inside to pay and asked for a to-go box. I told them I'd go to the bathroom and pick up the box on the way out, but apparently the waitresses didn't understand I wanted to take the remainders home so they threw it away before I went back to the table. I went to ask in case they hadn't thrown it away yet, and they insisted on remaking it to me for free!! :omgz: I ended up leaving a tip of almost 5€ on a bill of 14.20€.

^Nice! It sounds a bit like a Kalafina or Yuki song, but not really also, if that makes sense. It seems like some calming song from a video game. Have you ever considered writing for a game before? I think that'd be really cool.

Even though I am going through a lot, I have such great music as Yuki's, Kalafina, battle of the shadows from Pri-Pri, and other great works. When I listen to certain songs it just lifts my spirits. Like 30minutes night flight by Maaya Sakamoto too. That one really makes me smile and sing along. I am truly grateful to be able to hear, so I can hear music. Otherwise I don't know what I'd do...

I get that; I can tell with me this song had some influence from some of Revo's stuff as well, and then other things. I've thought about writing for a game before, I think it would be a unique but fun challenge.

Like 30minutes night flight by Maaya Sakamoto too.
Not really related to Maaya Sakamoto as a singer (but rather as a seiyuu), but I just found out she voices a bunch of my favorite anime characters (Ryougi Shiki (aka the main character) from Kara no Kyoukai, Ruler/Jeanne D'arc from Fate/Apocrypha, and Crona from Soul Eater to name a few) :XD:

I had never left Europe before in my life, but now I'm in New York on vacation, and so far it's a really interesting experience. I am visiting a friend, but since she has lots to work these days I've been walking around visiting places on my own, and I'm enjoying it a lot.
Considering that it's the first vacation I'm taking in seven years, I hope it keeps being great...

Lol, I just saw this so sorry for the late message, but if you haven't already, you should definetely check out some of Maaya's singing stuff!
Yoko Kanno actually composed the majority of her earlier albums, so all those albums are SUPER good and I highly reccomend them. Maaya actually started to self compose her later albums too, which were also good, but I reccomend you check out the albums Yoko Kanno composed first.
She's one of my favorite seiyuu's as well (Her performance of Shiki is so good), but the fact that she's also a really great (albeit super underrated) singer is also really nice, so I highly reccomend checking her out!

Here's a list of her discography; I reccomend the albums Dive, Lucy, Shounen Alice, Single Collection+ Nikopachi , Single Collection+ Hotchpotch, and Easy Listening first, then you can work your way through the rest.

As for being on topic though,
I did well on my first College Midterm :)

I splurged and ordered the Xenoblade Chronicles Special Edition, Super Mario Odyssey, and Fire Emblem Warriors.

As a broke college student, I'm gonna have to solely rely on cafe food for the next couple months haha, rip my wallet.

In the front of the line to see my favorite non Japanese band, Evanescence in concert and they played something as the sound check (it's outdoors) and it sounded really good I'm so excited :sohappy::sohappy::love:

Left the Evanescence show about an hour ago and it was amazing :love:. Since their next album is more or less remixes of all of their old songs, pretty much everything was new (though the encore was some normal songs that they don't play live often, if at all). Even though I was in the second to last row, just seeing one of my biggest musical inspirations live in the flesh right in front of me was freaking amazing. Definitely one of the highlights of my year just now :dote::sohappy::love:
 
Well.. I've been having these great dreams.. of seeing/living the things I wish for but can't get IRL! Feels bad to wake from them haha but still they're very comforting :D One of the reasons "Destination Unknown" is one of my absolute fav songs :TdT:

That's amazing! Luckyyyyyy :dote: I'm so happy for you! I can never forget their concert in Dubai a few years back, still rings in my ears! Evanescence was my first inspiration.. and now my 2nd fav band! even though I don't like the direction they're taking with this new album.. but they'll always have a place in my heart!

^I've only been listening to about a year and a half, but Amy's music is such a big inspiration to me as well. In fact, her and Kajiura are my biggest inspirations to keep playing piano and studying music. I know it'll never happen but if Yuki Kajiura and Amy Lee work together on a song I can die happy.

All my irl friends and family ALWAYS ridicule me and judge me for really being into Kpop/Asian music, which has always been super annoying, but I kinda grew a tolerance to it over time.
But today, in my Japanese class at my university I met someone who's just as into Kpop as me, and her bias group is also SHINee and I'm so happppyyyyy.

She's literally the first and only person I've met irl who actually likes Kpop and doesn't think I'm weird for liking it lol (I love all my friends but I can't bring up Kpop to them anymore because their reactions just make me mad lol)

I'm actually really lucky I met her because I go to a super social party school right by the beach, and the majority of the people here are just not the type of people I'd like to associate myself with usually (lots of drugs and partying. Also everyone here has a Valley Girl accent :XD:) so I'm just glad I met someone I could connect with so early on in the schoolyear
