Those pictures basically summarize how my life is now.


Graduated but still studying. For those who don't know me. Hi! Via internet, my name is Kayten. I am a college graduate with a degree in nursing. These past months I graduated nursing school, moved out of LA (for realz), interviewed for job (but didn't get it), took two nursing review courses, and now studying my life away for those boards I have to take fairly soon. Life is a whirlwind, for real. My life as an undergraduate is over. Pretty soon, I have to start my career. No more summer holidays, winter breaks, school. It's bittersweet feeling, ne?

It's pretty weird when I think about my career, especially with this economy. I'm scared out of mind. I've thought of moving overseas (most especially Japan) to take my career there. But, I researched, and it seems like everyone is struggling. So I'm back to the drawing board. As people say, I need to take one step at a time. Slay one dragon at a time, which is those boards.

The only thing that is keeping me sane is LJ, the JEfandom. I do not know what I would do without this fandom. I would probably INSANE. ha. Anyways. I'll post about the dramas I'm watching later..

I spent today trying update and make a banner for my LJ. However, I just ended up making a new friends only image for my Friends Lock. Check it out HERE. And, yes, I did put a crown on my BB, of course. of course. Right now Tama-chan is my ICHIBAN. You'll hear more about it later.

But, SHAKE IT UP, why can't Kisumai perform it yet?  Why don't they release the song yet? WHY WHY WHY? Tell me why? It was performed on Shounen Club by the Bakelaya boys. Why not Kisumai? BUUUUT this song, sounds like something on the RADIO here. Especially their KISUMAI-STEP. It would totally make it here. I believe it. It's an addicting/catchy song. Congratulations KisuMai once again.

Anyways,I am FREAKING out because of Shiritsu Bakelaya Koukou. When did thes Jrs. become not so Jr and Chibi. I started to watch for the theme song and Miyacchi. When I started, I was surprised and impressed.

Morimoto Shintaro.
I was looking through tags on tumblr. I swear I was like hyperventilating because I couldn't believe it was him. Or any of these boys pictured above. From what I was watching & as stated previously, I am very, VERY impressed by the drama and acting. *applause for the Johnny's Jr.*

But I was reading at aramatheydidnt about idols, it explained the success of Idols/Boybands in Japan. It's a pretty interesting read. It's all true and I agree with it. Here's a little snippet of it.

"Idols are beautiful, unattainable people we get to 'know' through an almost constant barrage of public appearances, " Shimizu said. "Since they enter the industry at such a young age, we get to watch them grow into adults. And consequently, we end up invested in their careers.



This was a good study break. Anyways, I'll post more in the near future. Please don't give up on me, friends. College was hard, therefore, I couldn't post much. This GIF explains how I was the past four years -__-

Hi there! Congratulations for graduating!

I totally remember the feelings after finishing my studies. Life changes so much after that. Good luck, really. I know it's really hard these days, but like you said, we have fandom to cheer us up at least.

I love the picture you used for your friends only banner! The part with Gaya and Watta is my phone screen bg. XD
So Tama is your favourite?:D That guy is totally adorable.


Apparently there won't be any shake it up release, and it wasn't performed by kisumai on shokura because they missed the recording of that particular episode because of the senbei. >__> It's a pity since I loved that song from the very first time I listened to it.

I've started watching bakaleya for the Jrs, particularly for Juri, Jesse and Yugo, I'm not very fond of Shintaro >__>; but when I found out Miyata was there my interest for the drama doubled! XD But I'm still on episode 5... orz

Thank yooou :]

Tama is my favorite. I think it's really a terrible unhealthy obsession though -_-. He's been my favorite when I used to watch shounen club, in magazines, and stuff. But he became my ICHIBAN in the fandom since ikemen. And it hasn't stopped (and it will not). I've watched all his dramas... even Ending planner episodes 1 &2. I didn't watch it for yamapi.. LOL.. ANYWAYS, Who is your favorite ?

I'm very sad about Shake it up!. It's such a good song!!! To tell you the truth, I watched Bakaleya for the song. Then for the juniors. It's quite surprising though. I wasn't it expecting it to be like that. Haha. I wasn't expecting Shintaro to be the lead, or be that grown up. LOL. I can't get used to how he looks. I keep imagining the little boy on SC.... I think Hokuto is becoming my favorite out of the bakelaya boys. HE'S SO GOOD! :D

I'm sad that there's not much of Miyata in the drama. -__-

Tama is adorable!♥

My favourite has been Fujigaya since the very first time I saw them (about 5 years ago), but recently Yokoo has reached the same level of love!♥ So I have to say both of them are! ;__; ♥

I really like Hokuto too. :O I was surprised, he's so good!

More Miyata would have been good!>

Bakaleya <3 Shake It Up <3 AND TAMA <3
University life must have been exhausting. My two sister have been taking medicine since forever and it's horrible how their life is T_T I can't believe I'm just a few months away from entering university too. I'm going for Architecture though xD so?

LOL I totally had no idea that Shintaro was in Bakaleya either. I even had to ask to confirm because WHAT D: HOW CAN THAT TINY THING BECOME SO BIG NOW DD:

Bakaleya though. . Is it just me, but are these boys making my heart ache? episode 9. Hokuto FTW! I think from episode 1-5, I was swooning over shintaro. I couldn't get over how big he got, in like.. a year? or so?

Uni life is pretty hard and exhausting, ngl. But don't worry, I'm sure you will do fine. Good luck with architecture :]
