I haven't been at all active on Gaia since late last year. :C School and life intervened, sadly. I'm active on Tumblr, and once I fly out to Japan for my three-month study abroad program, my blog will be hoppin' with photos. My writing blog is also occasionally updated as well. So please keep track of me there, as I won't be logging in half as often here!

Hi!~ I'm Azu. I'm pretty boring. :3

You want some quick stats? 20, female, college student, Japanese-American, quite contentedly single. Decently fluent in Japanese, interested in East Asian culture on a whole, enjoy creative writing and wasting time on the internets. I have a moderately unhealthy affection for all things Totoro- and Mameshiba-related.

Cuddlefest! is my hangout thread, and you are more than welcome to join the party at any time. <3 Also, Princesse Persephone is my dearly beloved, so no, you cannot have her. >:C

I clean and add images for Tektek, so I'm one of the people you can hassle ask to make changes about things like:
- item layering
- items missing under certain categories (wigs not appearing under hair, background items not listed, etc)
- items appearing in the wrong categories
- missing poses or items, or incorrectly-done items
Within reason, of course! If you suddenly were to say "HEY NONE OF THE SCARVES LAYER RIGHT," I will commence chewing on all of your extremities. It will not be funsies for either of us, trust me! :C Specific problems can get cleared up within a day if you're lucky, so please bring up little annoyances! We can probably fix them for you and everyone else.

I'll probably give generic answers and info on everything else ("why does the site not load for me," "why is my enviro missing all of my EIs," etc.), because mostly everything else has been asked ad nauseum on the info thread, and some of those questions don't have easy answers/no answers at all, so please check there first for any updates to those issues before you harass me!

My current can collection: 4433
Current sunflower count: 804

Wonderful! I nearly forgot you were off to Japan! :O How long are you staying there? Either way, I'm sure you'll find a way to get everything packed if you truly want or need it. Haha!
I almost feel like sending you stuff while you're away, if you're gone long enough, might be something to do.
But stories! You love stories. It seems you're doing that rather than loving us chillin's! ;A; Then again, I'm one to speak because I'm never on long enough to go have social time anymore. sweatdrop Why adult life, why do you have to be so difficult sometimes?

Mamazu! So sorry for the lateness in my replies! ;A; I've been terribly busy in the past few weeks.

I've also started working on my fortune part time, so it's made things extra busy for me. Honestly, I was going to talk to you about it eventually too. n_n

I guess so. sweatdrop I've never maxed out a comment box before, so I'm pretty sure that's how it goes. (Like I said, it needs to be an achievement or something)

(More comment to come, I just don't have time right now. Finishing a business card for a friend)

While we were dating, I wasn't exactly too interested, but once we called it off and dated other people, we were like flies to a steamy pile of poop for each other.

well, it looks like I hit the max word count for a comment. Awesome. there should be an achievement for that. cool sweatdrop

It's quite true people change once they know what it's like to be out on their own and fending for themselves. Many people here always tell me how I take the bull by the horns more or better than I did in high school since I've been away for a few years. But it's true that people like being told what to do when they don't want to think for themselves. I see it all the time where I work, and I just can't fathom the idea of just following orders all day every day. I'd much rather be the person to tell others what to do. (woo hoo! Not to mention the fact that I passed the manager's assessment, so I can be considered for any of them that become available in my store) But besides telling people what to do, I'd like to think of myself as a decent leader on teamwork. I've never focused energy on one particular person, because it takes all sorts to run a machine successfully. (Like Bacon Bowling for the Rejected Olympics. More times than not I got people to listen to me and do what I told them to to get perfect scores for each bowler)

As for my lady, we live, no kidding, not even a block away from a different Walmart from the one that I work at, so she goes shopping if she's really desperate on buying the things we need if I'm at work. The only thing about that is I've got the only car, so she walks. I wouldn't ever think it would be too difficult to handle, but I'm not the one slightly overweight. I've never really made a big deal about her weight, but more and more I come to find that a lot of her self esteem issues come from this fact, whether she admits it or not. I've also noticed since moving from Iowa that living in a mountainous region has affected her by how out of breath she'll get from simple things like walking my parents' dogs. It makes me sad in a way that she doesn't really have an interest in herself for being a healthier person. (since it's a case of horse to water but it doesn't drink it sort of thing)
I actually believe that if she finds some sort of breakthrough with dealing with her weight, she'll feel more confident in herself and would finally act like the person she is inside. I mean, she's really smart, really excitable when you talk about what she's interested in, and if put in the right situation, a super bubbly kind of girl that just..you just can't help but smile at. (it's funny when she laughs so hard, she cries ;D)

Truthfully, I only stay in contact with a handful of people from high school, and only one friend from junior high.( &lt;= I think I said this before) I have a lot of acquaintances, but I hardly ever find the time to get to know them better. As for my old friends that I had before I left for Iowa, I was always the one bending my schedule around theirs to keep a friendship going, and I never realized how much I'd put myself out to feel like I belonged until I left. I guess you could say the main reason why I left is because my lady made me feel important when I didn't feel that way with everybody else. Maybe those feelings still hold true for why I put up with all that I do when it comes to her lack of ambition. But besides that, I'm always busy with my art projects since I keep adding but never finishing as many things as I want. xD It's a little masochistic in a way, now that I think about it. haha
I actually have some good friends from what little time I had at the university I attended. I really only have two left from college since one of my so called best friends, at that time, ultimately was one of the factors that broke everybody up. (long story short, relationship drama within the group) I hold my friend in high regards when it comes down to nerd knowledge, since all we ever did for fun was play Magic. (we still do, actually)
As for your high school crush dude, it almost sounds like Murphy struck again. Whom he struck, it's hard to tell between the both of you. ;D I take it you're not too interested right now? That's basically like the boyfriend that I had in high school. While
