Pain in the Back!

Ohayou minna-san!9.gif

MK‘s finally back with another blog post for minna-san!11.gif

For any of you who follow me on twitter, you’ll notice that I was completely absent from the entire internet for about a WEEK!!!26_thumb.gif

This was because MK was very sick with back/muscle problems. I was almost immobilized for more than a week, due to the great pain I was feeling in my lower back. I spent the whole week in my house lying on my belly because I was unable to sit or lie on my back and it was quite painful to walk. I had almost zero social contacts outside of those with my family members (like my super annoying brother).

I think I can safely say that it was one of the lamest weeks I’ve had.

But in all of it I did my best to stay positive and trust that God was in control of the entire situation. I knew He’d heal me when He knew it was the best time to do so.

And sure enough. Here I am, doing fine now. I barely have any more back problems at all. Yay! God is good!

Hmmm, MK’s mom just arrived with some food and is calling MK and her brother to come eat. I guess this means it’s time for MK to go.

Oh!

MK is free from school this week! So, MK is going to try to blog to minna-san more often this week.

Also,

One of the reasons why I’ve been absent for so long her at my blog is because MK has been putting a lot more time and effort into her christian website (www.Teen-Fortress.com). I’ve got a blog there too, and I’ve been doing more blogging there, so minna-san is definitely welcomed to check it out.

OK, bye bye now.

Ja~ne!

Absence

Oyasumi minna-san!

As minna-san may have noticed by now. MK has been SUPER scarce online for almost a month now! This has been very excruciating for MK too, because most of you know that I’m a huge techy and hate to be away from “The Internet” for extended periods of time.

I apologize to anyone who might have missed MK during her absence (MK’s trying to make herself seem like she has a following *LOL).

OK, now that I’m back and this whole moving process is pretty much over (MK must remember to blog about her new home and life), I still can’t promise to be blogging super often or anything.

MK has been having to put a whole lot of extra time into her schoolwork here on her new island home. The language here is different to MK’s mother-tongue (English), so this makes things more difficult for MK.

Anyway, but MK will do here best to blog more.

Oh! Also, MK is planning to put a lot more work and effort into her Christian website (www.Teen-Fortress.com). MK has been neglecting her site and realizes now that she must do her best to get it back to where it should be.

So… that’s what MK’s been up to. Once again, apologies to minna-san. *bows apologetically*

Ja~ne

PS. Sorry about the absence of MK’s usual cute emoticons. If you take a look at previous posts you’ll notice that there’s something very wrong with the way MK’s emoticons are showing up here now. I don’t yet know exactly what’s wrong, but I hope to find out soon!

Update: The problem with the emoticons seems to have gone away! HOORAH! I don’t know why it came and why it went away. I hope it stays away now, though.

MK’s Current Living Circumstances

MK just got back from a nice day at her new school here in this wonderful place!

And guess where I happen to be right now?

I’m in our new permanent (well, almost permanent) house here in this wonderful place!18

This weekend my family and I spent a great deal of our time getting everything ready and moving into this house. We’re still far from being finished, but now we can actually stay here overnight.

To be honest I’m super happy about us finally starting to settle down. The last place we were staying at before moving in here, was really small. At first it was the three of us (me, mom and brother) living there and I was already going nuts because there’s no place to sit by yourself and do homework orhave Quiet Time. Then, to make matters worse, my dad and sister came and stayed there too. So I was really dying in there with one bathroom and one bedroom.

Anyway. So… (what was MK supposed to be blogging about?)

Well, I was gonna discuss with minna-san possibilities for designs for MK’s new bedroom. But I’ve already spent all my free time here, so I must now leave minna-san to go work on my homework.

What’s up with MK?

*Mood: Bored*

*Mood: Bored and lazy*

Konnichiwa minna-san!9.gif

As minna-san may have noticed by now, MK has been very scarce lately. So I have stopped by here to give minna-san a little update on the reason why I’ve been so scarce online the last week or so.

Some weeks ago I posted a post called Moving Away~!. In that post, I told minna-san that my family and I were going to be moving to Europe soon. Well, I spoke too soon. Several days after posting this post, I learned from my parents that they had actually changed their minds and decided on moving to another island in the Caribbean20.gif.

Honestly, MK was very upset at first, because I was truly looking forward to a new and exciting experience in a bigger country in Europe. But after about 20 minutes of tears and prayer, God helped me to accept that this is His plan and that He knows what’s best for us 18.

[Fast forward]

Right now, MK is on her new island home which she will now nickname “this wonderful place” (staying positive is MK’s new motto41(1)). Things are actually going very well so far in this wonderful place. We just found an awesome house to live in yesterday, so we’ll be moving into it soon.

So that’s generally what has been keeping MK so busy that she has been neglecting her computer and her blog and so many other things. I hope that this week or next week things will start to settle down again so MK can go back to wasting her days away hidden behind her laptop1_thumb.gif.

OH! Before I forget!

MK is currently working on updating this blog’s title and header and pretty much the whole theme of the website to fit MK’s two main interests better. Here at MK’s Blog, I’ve mostly been focussing on blogging about my interest in Manga and Anime. And by just looking at this blog, one can see that MK loves Manga and Anime and Japanese culture.

But what MK doesn’t talk about as much here, is her interest in tech. I’m a HUGE tech fan also. I read blogs like Engadget and Gizmodo and am very interested in phones, netbooks, laptops, websites, HTML, programs, pretty much anything that has to do with tech.

That’s why MK is planning to change the title, header and the general theme of this site to a cross between tech and manga & anime.

OK, time to go!

How to Pass Time at an Airport

*waiting for my flight back home!*

*waiting for my flight back home!*

Ohayou minna-san!

This is MK who was just not so nice to her mom when she asked her to go do something for her. I feel bad about it now…Text emote 2 One must always be respectful to his or her parents.

*ashamed*

OK, enough sulking.

MK is currently at the Orlando International Airport where she and her mom are taking a flight home. We actually have to take a total of 3 flights to reach to our destination. That’s pretty exhausting even just to think of, so MK is passing the time here blogging to minna-san! … And doing other things like:

  • Listening to music: “FYI – Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence” by Utada Hikaru
  • Browsing through Youtube videos (but I’m too impatient to wait for them to load – since the internet access here is pretty slow)
  • IM-ing my friends on MSN Messenger
  • Other random stuff

Yup, so MK always finds random things to at airports and gets along with the long hours of waiting quite well. But I’ve noticed that many other people aren’t as fortunate.

Right now, my mom and many other people here in this terminal waiting area are spending their time either sleeping or staring into space looking bored sick. I mean, most of these people seem to have something to do, but it looks like many of them don’t.

So in case you are one of those people who never has a clue what to do to pass the time at an airport, MK is going to give minna-san a list of 5 things to do to pass time at an airport:

1. Browse through available stores.

The airport you’re in most likely contains all kinds of apparel, electronics, and book stores that you can browse around in and – if you’re not cheap like MK – maybe even buy some stuff. Be warned: Airport stores are usually more expensive than other regular stores.

2. Read

MK's reading material

MK's reading material: "A guide to Windows Vista"

Reading is one of the most classic and effective ways to pass time – or at least in my opinion. I always carry at least one book or magazine with me when traveling. Books and magazines can be used at anytime. Unlike some electronics and laptops which can’t be used during certain parts of flights and have limited battery life.

3. Listen to music

Music always lightens the mood and makes any unpleasant experience more tolerable. Always travel with your MP3 player, iPod or PSP if you have one and make sure to keep it loaded with all your favorite tunes. It can be a life saver!

4. Draw Manga!

I know this doesn’t apply to everyone. But you can take it as just “Draw”. I love drawing even though I’m not that good and with my sketchpad and pencil in hand, I definitely enjoy looking like I have some kind of skill in the Art department. Maybe you’re good at drawing, in that case it should be even more fun for you. Be sure to bring along your sketchpad and pencil whenever you travel.

5. Count how many people are using iPhones right now!

MK, as some of you may know, is very much into tech and also loves to observe people and her surroundings. I’ve noticed while being in the US that there are tons of iPhones EVERYWHERE! I love the iPhone and I especially love the latest iPhone 3G, so I definitely enjoy seeing so many people taping on their iPhones. I’ve kinda made a game of looking for people with iPhones. Why not try making your own game?

OK, MK must rush away now! My plane is boarding!

Ja~ne!

MK’s Quest for The Sims 3: Complete!

*watching tv*

*watching tv*

Konbanwa minna-san!Text emote 14

MK’s here to tell you the good news!

I finally got The Sims 3!!!

Unfortunately, since MK hasn’t blogged in so long, this news is already quite old. I actually bought The Sims 3 more than a week ago.

The plus-side is, MK can now show minna-san her family!Text emote 6

And in order to show minna-san MK’s Family’s Story in a more fun and interesting way, I’ve spent the last… about 10 days… working on this video about MK’s Family!

If you’re wondering why it took so long to make a 6-minute video, it’s because MK made all of the media in this whole video herself.

The thing is MK started by just making the background song in GarageBand (only available on Macs) and she was planning to just show minna-san her song in a seperate post. But then I came up with the idea of making a video about my family and decided to use my own little song (if it can even be called a song – it’s more like … a mix [?]) in my video.

I hope minna-san enjoys watching MK’s video which she posted on Youtube yesterday.

What did minna-san think, ne? Should I make more videos?

Leave a comment and let me know!

From the Apple Store

Konbanwa minna-san!

You’ll notice that MK is using no pictures in this post. That’s because right now I’m in the Apple Store at our favorite mall!

Well, that’s all I really wanted to say. Plus, I don’t want anyone who’s standing behind me here to be reading what I’m doing [.___.]{!).

Ja~ne!
