Shige: smile

JUMP in Yokohama, Shige at the Globe, and life in general

As it turns out, moving house to a different prefecture, starting a new job, and generally having your entire lifestyle change in a short period of time makes it really hard to stay on top of stuff like Livejournal. I don't know that anyone even reads here anymore, but I still want to keep posting if I can, so here's a brief update of what I've been doing for the past month or so.

→ Saw JUMP in Yokohama three times (once per day on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday). The first day was tachimi, which was painful but I survived, the second day was amazing seats quite close to the stage, and the third day was from the first row of the stands right behind the back stage, which was actually a pretty good view.

→ Was there for the the announcement of the dome tour! I almost started crying, I was so amazed. Three domes! I can't believe how far they've come since I became their fan more than six years ago.

→ I got to touch Hikaru and Chinen's hand on Sunday when they came down from the carts, but possibly more importantly, Inochan waved at me. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Inochan's concert demeanor, he just doesn't wave at people, basically ever. He sort of waves into the distance, but you have to be, idk, there at the right time, very close and in front of his face? for him to wave at you personally. And after six(ish) years of going to JUMP concerts, he finally waved AT ME! That basically was enough to make my entire life as a JUMP fan worth it.

→ I've been busy with work. Living in a major city, commuting by train, and learning a new job have all be pretty stressful, but maybe I'm starting to get a hang of things.

→ I saw Shige's play, The Green Mile, four times! He's really amazing, and I enjoyed the show a lot (despite it being kind of traumatizing, as anyone who has seen the movie or read the book can probably guess). I was lucky to be able to see it from fairly close three of the four times, so I also got to appreciate Shige himself. XD; He's so gorgeous!

I had to work last weekend and I have to work next weekend, so I'm trying to get in some time to rest and recuperate from a cold I've had recently and do more organizing. Maybe one day everything will have a home in my new apartment... But for now... as I always say... I'm going to try to update more and slack less. And for right now, I'll try to stay dry in this hurricane. XD;

Have a good weekend, everyone!
