The Dreaded Moment is Fast Approaching!



Oyasumi minna-san. This MK who is trying hard not to think about something very scary that she’s going to have to do soon… [0__0] (forgive me in advance if I seem a bit gloomy at the moment)


I just got back from choir practice. I just recently joined my church’s “mass choir” (though really, it’s just adults and older people in the church). Myself and my friend Leah are the only two young people in the choir (she joined the same time as I did), and the adults now seem to pride themselves on having “the youth” in the choir.

And so, today… I’m not sure exactly how it happened, but now, Leah and I are singing a duet together to open one of

the choir’s songs \[0‘□’0]/{Dôshiyô, dôshiyô, dôshiyô?!) (<– What do I do?!)

A little Bio on MK: Does not sing in public!

I’ve NEVER been a public singer. I let ANYONE hear my sing! My family wouldn’t know what my singing voice sounds like if I didn’t sing at worship (and that’s the only time I let them hear me sing). I mean, I sing clownily all the time, but that’s just for fun. It’s just always been different for me to sing have people hear me sing. And it’s not stage fright or anything. It’s just a fear of others hearing me sing, not because I can’t sing or anything, but because… Well, it’s hard to put my finger on it, but I think it’s because I’ve just always had this feeling that me singing = a strange occurance = staring = awkward silence…. Hard to explain.

Anyway, at first I was planning to say “ABSOLUTELY NOT!”, but then I realized that this is probably what God wants me to do. I’d been thinging a lot about conquering my fear of singing in public, and I know that’s what God wants me to do, so I couldn’t really say no. [^_^]||||

Although I’m real scared about having to sing in church. I know that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. I’m sure God will help me to do my best, and maybe someone will be helped through my singing. *shrugs* God works in mysterious ways.

MK would like to ask for minna-san’s prayers for her. She’s going to need them. *sigh*

Oh! Sorry, I forgot to ask about minna-san’s condition: How are you doing? Is minna-san having a lovely day today? I hope so [^v^].

But MK must go now

~Ja-ne~ God bless v[^.^]♥

Welcome to Over the Waves – by MissionaryK

*chewing Bubblicious bubble gum* - yummmm

Konbanwa minna-san! Genki desu ka? It’s me, MissionaryK!

Welcome to my new blog! As you’ll learn if you read the About page, this isn’t my first personal blog. I have another one, but because that one was taking up too much time (contributing to my neglecting of Teen-Fortress.com). But because I do love to blog, I decided to make this blog, by MK. That way Teen-Fortress.com members and visitors can have something new to read more often.

About the blog on Teen-Fortress.com, I’ll now use that to post updates about the site itself. Oh, and about the TFC Club.

Anyway, you must be wondering what those two sentences at the beginning of this post mean. Well, these are some words and phrases that you might want to get used to. I use them in most of my posts:

Both of these phrases are Japanese. I’m a big fan of Japanese culture and stuff. You’ll notice this in the way I talk. LOL.

Note: There will be many revelations about MK in this blog for here, she is free to be herself.

Anyway, back to the meanings of the words:

Konbanwa minna-san” :  Good evening everyone. I use the word minna-san very often in my posts. It means “everyone”.

Genki desu ka?: How are you doing? Sometimes I say this in english, other times I say it in Japanese, other time I don’t say it at all.

OK, moving on now:

As you can see, this one is not the only post here. I’ve imported my old posts from my old blog here for two reasons:

  1. I felt it’d be kind of a waste to just let them be deleted.
  2. I think it’ll help minna-san understand my way of blogging (if it’s any different from everyone else’s)

So check out my past posts. You’ll notice some things:

  • I use many emoticons, like: [^_^], [T.T], [;_;], [*v*]
  • I often speak of myself in the third person. Why? Because I’ve noticed that many Japanese people speak that way. I think it’s cute [>^ v ^<].
  • I use Japanese words in my posts. (I think I’m a freak)

Anyway, I’m gonna go have Quiet Time now…

I’ll be sure to blog again soon!

Ja~ne♥ (that means bye bye in… you guessed it… JAPANESE! LOL)

Official Announcement

Burnin' Up - Jonas Brothers

*Listening: Burnin' Up - Jonas Brothers

Konnichiwa minna-san! Long time no see, ne? MK is here again to do a quick notification post.

First of all, Sachi-chan must apologize to minna-san and admit that she’s been doing “more important things” lately. Gomenasai!

Ok, on to MK’s notification:

So, as minna-san might have noticed, MK has been really struggling to blog as much as possible, though not fully succeeding [-_-]|||. And unfortunately, I can’t promise that this will change any time soon, since MK’s job and goal to earn enough to buy herself a certain birthday gift.

But minna-san must not panic! I’m not going to completely stop blogging. I’m going to continue doing my best to blog as often as possible.

I’ve also asked Yoshi-kun to try and help out, so I’m hoping he’ll be able to be of assistance during MK’s busy periode.

But minna-san can begin counting the days because once she has her hands on her dream phone she’s going to work a lot less, which means more time for blogging! \[^v^]/

Alright, MK is going to go play The Sims after a super long week!

Oh! MK would like to know: How is minna-san doing? And… What does minna-san think of… an instant messager in the sidebar that allows minna-san to chat with MK?

OK, thanks for understanding!


What a pretty song!

*just ate*

*just ate*

Ohayou minna-san!

MK is, again, quite busy today. Actually, I think I’m going to be even more busy today than I was yesterday. [>-<] *hits self for neglecting minna-san and the blog*

But of course it’s better to post a short post than to post nothing at all. So in order to keep minna-san from dying of boredom here, MK will share a song that she fell in love with the moment she heard it yesterday [*v*].

OK, so yesterday night after watching American Idol, I didn’t feel like immediately going to bed to I flipped around for something interesting to watch. I stumbled upon this Chinese channel. Some kinda of a big concert was going on. The beautiful lights and colors and dancing people seemed very sweet to MK’s eyes, so she decided to check it out. It seemed to be some kind of a concert with different Chinese singers. I ended up really enjoying most of the concert, especially since there were many beautiful decorations and probably hundreds of dancers! It was very beautiful!

Then a certain singer showed up and started to sing this song called “The Smiling Eyes”. I couldn’t gather any other info about the song or the singer at the time because pretty much everything was in Chinese [.___.]{?). The song was ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL to MK’s ears!!! I could have cried! And what’s more, the singer looked absolutely gorgeous and she sounded flawless!

Vivian Hsu

Vivian Hsu

Of course I was desperate to find the song! So I looked it up and with thanks to the wonderful works of Google, MK was able to locate the song [^.^]!

It’s called “(The) Smiling Eyes” by Vivian Hsu, a Taiwanese… actor/singer/porn star ([O_O] I guess that might explain why she was so pretty). I read that some people find her voice not so nice, but MK has, by far, never heard such a nice Chinese performance before.

Anyway, I was looking everywhere for the file of the song itself, but [again] I’ll have to share with minna-san the music video.

[O_O] Was that guy blowing smoke out of his shoulder?? (see 1:03)

Unfortunately, MK can only guess what the song is about, since she speaks no Chinese/Taiwanese whatsoever and music videos can be quite misleading.

Anyway, MK very much enjoyed the concert and hopes to see more Chinese concerts again in the future.

I must leave now!


Will MK ever have free time again?!

*watching American Idol*

*watching American Idol*

Konbanwa minna-san!

MK is feeling rather guilty for allowing this blog to go un-updated for quite some time. [-_-] Gomenassai, minna-san!

Anyway, MK has been super busy again these last few days. I’m beginning to get pretty ticked at “being busy” all the time now. I never have time to chill and draw manga or just surf the net or play my guitar or read manga or do any of those things I like to do [;_;]. I really don’t feel much like a kid anymore.*tear-tear* MK doesn’t wish to live the rest of her youth like this! [T.T]

One huge part of the problem is this:

My job is one that doesn’t require constant activity. I work at my grandma’s very tiny shop. I don’t have a specific task to do, so I just do what needs to be done. Since my granny’s shop isn’t super busy (especially when I’m at work – in the afternoons) I have a good bit of time to do things like homework and stuff. But the very big problem is… there’s no internet access in her store. There used to be but there isn’t anymore. So MK wastes precious time doing nothing or just blabbering with her granny when she could be on her laptop blogging, working on her projects and doing any other things I need the internet to do.

But now, since there’s no internet access there, I get home, have about an hour free. So I have to pack alllll those things that I have to get done online (which I could have done at work) into that tiny hour and then rush on with the rest of my day! *RAWR!!! \[`o΄]/{!3*

I don’t think I can keep this up for much longer especially since I feel like my homework performance is taking a blow because of this.

Minna-san must be wondering, “Why are you stressing yourself out for a job? Let alone a job at you granny’s!?”.

Well, to be honest, MK is totally putting her all into this job because it’s the only steady source of income that she has. And if minna-san remembers, I have a specific goal that I’m saving for *wink-wink*. That’s why I’m using just about all of my free time to work so that I can save up as much as possible, whether it’s stressfull or not!

For example, MK has a week of vacation from school coming up soon. I’m still wondering whether or not I should work full-time for that week or not. I’ve calculated how much I’d earn according to how many hours I’d be able to work in the week and…

If MK works full-time during her week of vacation she, at the end of the week, she would earn 5 times more money than she doesn on regular weeks when she only works part-time. That means, in one day of working full-time, I’d earn the same amount of money that I get from working a whole week part-time! [$.$] LOL

So I think I’m gonna go ahead and work full-time during my vacation. [u_u]

I just can’t wait until I’ve reached my goal and can buy this dream phone of mine! Then I’ll definitely be able to slack up a little, since I won’t have anything specific to save for.

Well, MK must go back to her hectic life of work and responsibility [=_=].

Sachi-chan had a yummy breakfast the other day ^_^
