The worst foe lies within the self...
new doujinshi (4 months worth), nursing, life, etc
So, been awhile...

Nursing & College: Mental Health rotation is over next week. Not sure if I'm gonna pass. Been taking 900mg/day (1200mg when I need the extra push) of St. John's Wort to help stave off the physical manifestations of my anxiety, but it doesn't do much to make me more talkative/social. I think it's more mood stabilizer than anxiolytic. Gives me a slight, dull buzz in the head. Noticed it's blunted the usual mental chatter and spiraling feeling of doom I get whenever my anxiety spikes high...so guess that good? Could also be placebo effect.

I had a list of supplements to buy, but CVS only had 2 (SJW & Valerian root). Gonna buy some 5-HTP, skullcap, passion flower, and kava kava...and think there were more, but all I can remember atm. Bought Kava Yogi tea but the dosage probably isn't high enough for any effect.

Self & Style: Dyed my hair auburn using Garnier Ultra Color R2. Dude, it's perfect. Think I'll keep my hair this colour forever, lol. Gotten a lot of compliments. Actually bought 2 backups of Garnier Ultra Color R3 which is the brightest red in this line, but worried from some of the online pics that it might be too 'fire engine' or fake. Seeing how bright R2 is, kinda scared to even use R3. Probably try after nursing or during the summer. The best thing about this dye is that there's no need to bleach dark hair (my natural colour is dark brown, maybe 1 or 2 shades away from black).

Finally got the hang of this top lid eyeliner thing. Yay. Still working on wingin' it asian style...aiming for dramatic cat-eye. Think the problem is I don't keep my eye open while drawing.

Watching: Working my way through Netflix's selection of Korean dramas. Seen 49 Days, Manny, and Vampire Prosecutor. Currently on 'Bread, Love, and Dreams' (kicks ass). I've noticed a pattern to these shows...Koreans like being unhappy. And if there's an old dude, mark my words that old dude will die eventually. Either in the beginning or at the end to spur the MC into drastic change or to make more dramaz.

Playing: 01/28/2013 - omg, playing Dark Souls and the hydra in Ash Lake just committed suicide, lol. He fucking flies and goes off like a water canon if you run away from him. Best part of the game so far as I was not expecting any of that, haha.

Doujinshi & Website: Umm, updated the online store with most of the items below. Collection website is updated on my HD but not online...dunno when I'll get to updating anything other than the sales.

This is everything I've gotten over the past 3-4 months (since 1st semester nursing let out). Got a new phone so my camera got upgraded as well (see how different some pics look. 3 different batches xD). Dunno why Photobucket keeps resizing the pics from my new phone. My older phone pics look better+bigger. :/

Let me know if anything looks interesting, I'll probably scan it...eventually...haha.

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
Arcana Famiglia doujinshi - Jolly/Felicita, Luca/Felicita, Ash/Felicita, Nova/Felicita. Whoo, my latest fandom. Hoping it will be the last big one (this is what i said for Hakuouki and see what happened...sigh).

Photobucket Photobucket
Arcana Famiglia official merchandise. 2 art books, 2 novels, 1 comic anthology, 2 phone straps, some cards, 1 magazine poster. Usually don't buy posters, but I love the artwork so much. @@ The 1st artbook is apparently HTF now? The 2nd artbook is only worth it if you like Ash + has a few more of the newer released artworks. I was kinda disappointed but do love it anyway.

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
Fate/Zero - Kiritsugu/Irisviel, Kariya/Sakura, Shirou/Sakura, Kirei/Rin, Gilgamesh/Saber. Umm, my other newest fandom. Trying to cut down and buy only really nice books... Been trying to get 2 earlier Kirei/Rin works by 'color' but auctions always going up to $50-$60+. I don't love this series that much, haha. One day I shall have them. *stalks long and hard*

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
Hakuouki - Kazama/Chizuru. Top two here cost $40 each. Most I've spent on single doujinshi in a loooong time. T_T The popular artists for this series always have bid wars. x.x Actually, a lot of the books here were pretty expensive, lol. At least $20+ each. *wallet is sad*

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
Hakuouki - Okita/Chizuru, Saitou/Chizuru, Heisuke/Chizuru. That orange thing in the last pic is a novelty that came from one of the C83 books. It's filled with water and has a cute pic of chibi Okita, Chizuru, and Saitou.

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
Tales of Xillia - Jude/Milla. Books for this pairing get expensive (depending on circle) and rarely seen on auction. Lost 2 bids for Gaius/Milla books (went to $30+ each x.x). Hoping the artist has some leftover at the next major event.

Steins;Gate - Okabe/Kurisu. Always some good stuff. I'll scan one of these soon.

Photobucket Photobucket
Final Fantasy XIII - Hope/Light
Final Fantasy VII - Tseng/Aeris, Cloud/Yuffie
Valkyrie Profile 2 - Rufus/Alicia, Lezard/Lenneth
Xenosaga - some chaos/KOS-MOS, Allen/Shion, Jr/MOMO?
Star Ocean 3 - Albel/Sophia. completing my Alphia collection, lol
BlazBlue - Hakumen/Tsubaki, Jin/Tsubaki
Rockman X4 (Megaman X4) - Zero/Iris, general. wishing i bought more from this circle but wasn't sure if their books were comic or novel only.
Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - Link/Midna

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
Reborn - Hibari/Chrome, Gokudera/Haru, Mukuro/Tsuna, Byakuran/Shouichi, Ryohei/I-pin, Roll general. Finally, another Hibari/Chrome added to the collection. Mwahaha. Only need 1 more book from this circle. More GokuHaru books but sold some already...forgot to take a pic of G-sama. Ryo/I-pin cuz it's cracky as hell. Apparently, I can still get excited over 6927 books cuz I love that GA-CHUCK anthology. Hmm, think I forgot to include 1 ByakuShou book...one of the newer releases by microcuts, has Byakuran w/ wings on the cover.

Also some Bleach - Urahara x Yoruichi, Ulquiorra x Orihime in the last pic. Already sold the UlquiHime. Love the 2 UraYoru, such great art.

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
Aquarion EVOL - Kagura/Mikono
Macross Frontier - Alto/Sheryl, Brera/Sheryl, Michael/Klan

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
Pokemon Black & White - Subway Master/Touko. Ooh, forgot...this is actually my newest fandom, wtf. Haven't even played this game but one of my friends likes it..and well...yeah. This shit gets expensive tho cuz apparently Nintendo goes after anyone that uses their stuff, so no mail order. Spent around $40 on that anthology after bidwar auction but managed to get an extra from C83. Huhu, oh well. T_T Hoping to sell that auction book.
Tiger & Bunny - Koutetsu/Karina
Vocaloid Gakupo/Luka
Ao no Exorcist - Amaimon/Shiemi
Darker Than Black - Hei/Yin
Hiiro no Kakera - Yuuichi/Tamaki

I'm taking mental health in the summer since med-srug 2 is too tough to try on its own. Blah!!!

By the way: http://smg.beta.photobucket.com/user/opalescent/media/130217_0044_zps6d6672d0.jpg.html - the first one, is that Giselluka? I don't remember her releasing any new books for a while...unless I missed it.
aweofshe From: aweofshe Date: February 25th, 2013 12:34 am (UTC) (Link)
You get to pick which classes you're taking? Mental health is supposedly this semester's hardest theory class. xD I'm passing theory, just not sure about clinical yet. @@

Yep, new Giselluka book. It's a sequel to one of the other newer ones.
metamorcy1 From: metamorcy1 Date: February 25th, 2013 12:47 am (UTC) (Link)
I get to mess with my classes like split it up. Med-surg is actually the hardest class because the work load is massive. Why do each chapter takes 2 hrs to read?!?!Mental health is supposed to be easier depending on the professor. I'm paying out of the pocket so I don't care how I do things as long as I graduate and get my license

Crap, why hasn't it showed up on one of the sales sites yet? Normally it would, at least one of them. I don't think she takes orders online, does she? :(
aweofshe From: aweofshe Date: February 25th, 2013 02:10 am (UTC) (Link)
Ooh. Ours they have a whole program already planned. 2hrs to read? Eww. = =

Yeah, I think it's not available on Toranoana yet or whatever. Got mine at C83.

...wanna buy my copy? lol
metamorcy1 From: metamorcy1 Date: February 25th, 2013 02:33 am (UTC) (Link)
Well, each semester is planned out already with the classes you're supposed to take. However, some classes are really hard and people withdraw out to try next semester. Medsurg 2 and Mental Health are supposed to be together as semester 4, also known as the hardest semester of nursing in our school. But I followed the previous semester's advise and split it to take medsurg 2 now and Mental Health in the summer. I already know a few that are dropping Mental Health because having the two together is too difficult.

Medsug on Monday from 9-1 and sometimes she keeps you until 3 or 4 for extra stuff. Then pick your patient to do the care plan on which can take about 3-4 hrs. By the time you get home to work on the care plan, its already 7ish. Then clinical tomorrow for Tuesday in the early morning and also Wednesday. By the way, care plans take about 12-16 hrs to do so more than likely, no sleep. Thursday is mental health from 9-1. Then if you have another class, study for that one too. And they screwed up the testing scheduling too this semester. Apparently, you get Medsurg test on Monday, then Mental Health test on that same week. People just aren't making it. And the two classes are bumping with each other since Mental Health would call for a meeting on Tuesday and people are in clinical for Medsurg. Its just bad honestly. Don't forget your readings too. Medsurg has about 8 chapters so X2hrs each chapter, you spend a lot on that + you need to do case studies. I'm not taking Mental Health but the care plans are just as long as Medsurg and don't forget the reading for that class.

I split so I only do half the work XD

Buy your copy? You have an extra? Or you didn't really like it because she hasn't been doing her usual work style?
aweofshe From: aweofshe Date: February 25th, 2013 04:36 am (UTC) (Link)
Man, that's a huge time investment. I'd be in a constant state of pissed if our teachers kept us that long after class, lol. You've gotta be dedicated. Don't think I could do it, haha. Thinking if I actually make it through semester 3 I'm gonna quit and not do the LVN-RN bridge. @@ I'm not sure how our RN program is set up, tho. We got the chance to sit in on one of their simulations and looks kinda fun.

Yeah, selling my copy. I don't really collect Reborn doujin anymore unless it's one of my 4 main pairs. 50% of everything I buy goes up for sale, haha.
metamorcy1 From: metamorcy1 Date: February 25th, 2013 06:00 am (UTC) (Link)
I know, I hate it so much really. Well, do what you can :)

And sure, I can probably take it off your hand if its reasonably priced. I'll see if there's anything else I'm interested in. Did you update your sales page?
aweofshe From: aweofshe Date: February 25th, 2013 11:44 am (UTC) (Link)
Hmm, I'm supposed to attend review session today, but think it starts at 8am. I have a date with my bed until 10am. XD Huhu. *is up at random odd hour*

Yeah, selling it pretty cheap. Parts of my LJ page are only updated until January something, but I added more last weekend. There's like 100/200 new items. = =

aweofshe From: aweofshe Date: March 2nd, 2013 04:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
This is actually already claimed by someone, haha.

I can't really go down much on the price for the other 2 cuz I'm already selling near base value. Can take a little off shipping, tho.

$13.99 - http://skyrend.ecrater.com/p/15262832/reborn-doujinshi-growth-mukuro-x-tsuna-
$14.99 - http://skyrend.ecrater.com/p/17232430/reborn-doujinshi-aru-hazu-no
$28.98 subtotal
-$1.98 discount
$1 shipping (-$2 discount)

Would you do $28 shipped (gifted)? @@
metamorcy1 From: metamorcy1 Date: March 2nd, 2013 05:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hi, yeah, I can do $28 gift/payment owed - just to make sure, there's no novel in these books? Sorry, have to ask since I can't really read Japanese :(

As for the other book, let me know if the claim comes off. If you're in a hurry for money, you can send a gentle reminder to the person saying someone else is interested. They generally buy the book right away to stop competition. I know you do holds for a long time
aweofshe From: aweofshe Date: March 2nd, 2013 08:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
Awesome, thanks. ^^ No novel, just comics.

I'll let you know about the art book. We're currently sharing a Taiwan order, so we're waiting for that to arrive.
metamorcy1 From: metamorcy1 Date: March 2nd, 2013 09:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Alright, can you tell me your paypal address? Thanks

Oh, alright, no problem
aweofshe From: aweofshe Date: March 2nd, 2013 09:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yup, here you go: skyrend [AT] zoho [DOT] com

metamorcy1 From: metamorcy1 Date: March 2nd, 2013 10:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sent. I put the address in the message. Since I know it'll push it all together, I added a - for whenever there's supposed to be a new sentence.
aweofshe From: aweofshe Date: March 2nd, 2013 10:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
Payment received, thanks~ I'll have them out on Monday. ^^
