Less than 4 hours until 2013!

Another year has passed and I feel like this has been a better year for me compared to the past few years.

I feel like I'm ending 2012 on a positive note despite the many negative things that have happened.

Here are the FIRSTS I went through in 2012~!
FIRSTSCollapse )AGAINS, FANDOMS, BOOKS, MOVIESCollapse )GOOD and BADCollapse )


This entry was mostly for what has been done in 2012. Once the clock strikes midnight, I'll post something for 2013!

This will be my last post in 2012 as well as my last post in this LJ account.

I will be moving to my new account puricoffee starting for the new year. Sorry if many of you already have several accounts from me but I've felt like getting a change. 2012 was a good year and i was disappointed in not making as many posts as I should have to look back on. I want to change that for 2013. I hope many of you guys will add me there! I really want to keep and make lots of my friends there!

See you in 2013!

-Tina

Every year I try to make a wishlist for myself for things that I want to buy for myself throughout the following year. Then, by the time I make the list for the next year, when I look back, it's interesting to see what things I was able to fulfill and things I realized I lost or gained interest in.

I didn't make one at the end of 2011 for 2012 because I guess I got kind of caught up in some of the fandom chaos during that time and I was working full time.

But, in general, I don't make fandom wishlists for the intention of others getting things for me; this is entirely to see how crazy I am when it comes to my fandom greed. Besides, I'd feel guilty if people buy me fandom things because those are things that might be a phase with me. However, I do have other things in mind that are general enough for anyone anyway. XD Since it's also my birthday in February, I'm not opposed to combining the sentiment with Christmas into one.

While making this list, I've realized that 2011 and 2012 had be going through quite a shift in interests and even going BACK to old fandoms. But, many things haven't changed either XD;

For anyone wanting to EXCHANGE gifts... post your own wishlist here too!

General wishlist~(things easier to get i'd think XD)
Starbucks gift card - COFFEE
Sentimental Circus stationary goods like notepads, notebooks, etc
stickers - I like stickers
pens - I like those really thin tipped ball point pens or anything with a cute design!
postcards - if you're from another country, I'd love to see a postcard representing it or your city!
STAR - my cubicle is kind of BORING. Print out this star (or any type of your choice) and color it in how you want then send it to me so I can decorate my desk xD;
link me to videos or songs you want to share with me
letters/fanart/drabbles/whatever
Recommendations of jdramas or jmovies (and links if possible!)
Recommendations of manga/anime for me to try out!
NEWS files that feel like they've been lost in the abyss XD
Translations
Personalized LJ icons

Fandom wishlist~ (for my own reference!)

these are mostly for me to get... but if you even wanna try....Collapse )

I think that's it.... I might be adding or crossing out as I go along throughout the year so this page could be changing xD

I know it may be a little early to some of you but I've been looking forward to this since August XD;;;



If you would like to receive a holiday/Christmas card from me, please leave your NAME (for postage and/or for my message) and ADDRESS!
Some of you already sent it to me via twitter, but if you can repost it here so I can have them all in one place would be appreciated X3;;;
Comments are obviously screened! Oh, and please write it exactly as it should be written on the envelope X3;

Now, leaving your address /doesn't/ necessarily mean you have to send me one in return! It's up to you if you want to send me one. But here's my address in case you want to send me one~


DON'T STALK MECollapse )

It doesn't feel like it's been a year. So much has happened since then for me, that the day it happened and all those mixed feelings are long gone.

A year ago.

This order is pretty much the same as the others that I'm doing if you scroll down.

But this time... I'm only ordering for those in the USA and I'd rather keep it between FList and TList. Shipping overseas is a pain and I know more NEWS fans in the US so I'm limiting to here, and maybe Canada/Mexico because we're BFFS XD

I'll update this better when the actually JE site has the official prices so there might be changes X3;;

ADDED: Official goods list

Pamphlet - $26 (2000 yen)
Uchiwa - $7 (500 yen)

T-shirt - $33 (2500 yen)

Earphone Jack - $7 (500 yen)
Ice punch - $4 (300 yen)
Penlight - $20 (1500 yen)
Photo - $8 (600 yen)

I'll only be taking Paypal or cash in person. When sending money through Paypal, I'd like to ask that it be through the gift/personal payment so we can avoid the fees. I would prefer to get any money transfers by August 20th the latest! We can work out shipping individually after I've returned from Japan on August 28th.
