Also, check out my Japanese Pokemon bookstore market food pickups. :)

I got the Facebook job (yay tech career stepping stone!)so I won't have as much free time well more like time to sleep in. I will still try to go to the markets every week. and definitely make more trips to the mall and eating out at more places I want to check out in the future. getting paid weekly will be so convenient but bad at the same time...

I'm only 23 so I feel like I am in a good place now. If I didn't get this job, I would feel like I'm a failure since I'll be almost 5 years out from graduating in high school with no career... It would take a while to move up in the library ranks if I stayed at my old job and worked at multiple libraries..

As for career, I don't mind staying in this position for awhile. We will see.

definitely looking forward to having the 8 days where I don't have to work or any commitments and travel!

I need to write out what I should do so I can be productive:

Sunday, 4/24 - Cupertino Cherry Blossom Festival
Monday, 4/25 - did practically nothing useful (should have cleaned out phone more)
Tuesday, 4/26 - went home, took Pokemon pics, clean
Wednesday 427 - clean, PO, mall, friendship garden, post magazine pics
Thursday 4/28 - go home, make post, clean
Friday 4/29 - clean, clean clean, go to Mitsuwa for Children's Day sweets
Saturday 4/30 - go home, go to Mitsuwa for Children's Day sweets, and family dinner
Sunday 5/1 - go to Mitsuwa, clean Mountain View Festival

Also, I will be saving my May paychecks to pay off stuff and Fanime. I think my budget for Fanime will be $500~$600 to spend at the artist alley. AX will be much more. at least $1500 for the whole trip to cover hotel, transportation, food, and artist alley spendings. Yes I know I buy a lot of stuff at the artist alley. x_x

I'm cutting down how much I spend for Pokemon. I haven't browsed Yahoo Japan! Auctions in awhile. So that's very good, haha there's no temptation too. I will splurge a little bit if I have enough once I get paid after a couple of weeks.

in late May: there's the June Monthly Pikachu Pair
buying multiples of Monthly Pikachus still...
still need to get the Kyoto-exclusive Okuge-chu and another Maiko Chu both sitting and standing
more Kyoto goods like another tea cup set and fan

Transform Ditto plush
Slowpoke kuttari
Sleeping Ditto plush
Nebukuro plush
Magnetic Ash's Greninja plush
Mega Pikachu plush...
Pokemon With You Pikachu

errr actually I have a lot to catch up

Alright let's catch up by August?

Almost 7am and I haven't even slept yet... I will be at the first Silicon Valley Comic Con in San Jose, California! ( aka the most forgettable major US city?) You tell me if you know where San Jose is!


I am hyped!

My wallet is taking a major beating right now in Mid March with the Kyoto Center goods and Monthly Pikachu restock/April Pair... Plus I have the convention so who knows how much I will be spending. And... Kinokuniya is having a 20% sale this weekend. ouchhhh. and I just got paid.. so all my money goes to nerd stuff XD

Anyways, Silicon Valley is my home turf - I was born and raised here next to all the tech companies. Bf & I live right down the street from Apple HQ and their new HQ soon across from Ranch 99/Cupertino Village. Their new Hq site is where the old HP campus where my aunt used to work.
Google started when I was like 6 lol right when I started watching Pokemon. xD
Steve Wozniak who's one of Apple's co-founders is teaming up with the one and only comic legend Stan Lee in hosting the convention! I am so glad The Woz decided to bring a big Comic Con to Silicon Valley/SF Bay Area because we sorely need one up here with San Diego Comic Con down south and WonderCon which used to be in San Francisco now in LA.



I am super excited to see Steve Wozniak and Stan Lee in person. ever since reading Steve Wozniak's autobiography he had co-written with a journalist when I was in my high school freshman year I have been a fan even though I'm not an Apple person at all. I just love his personality, the way he see things in tech, didn't seek wealth (went to teach computer classes to kids) and was different from Steve Jobs. Also he grew up in my hometown! And he's pro Bernie!

It's gonna be an awesome one of a kind convention experience! Where pop culture and technology come together at a con - two things I'm very interested in! Well, I am more of a movie/tv person for the comics series than actually reading them but David reads some and he's very much a nerd in both American comics and Japanese manga/anime.

As always with convention weekend, I barely get any sleep. I haven't been productive at all lately too especially since I am actively job searching and hoping to get my foot in at the tech companies here. Silicon Valley is expensive -_-.

I have a big wishlist though so it won't be hard to choose what to get and I prefer the items in new condition. I love promos like the Little Tales, Pikachu in the Farm, Mystery Mansion, and the recent Pokemikke or any promo that features food (sweets/desserts). I also love charms, clear files, stationery, kitchen goods~ anything that is cute and have a practical and display use!
31st-Jan-2016 05:47 pm - Late 2015 meme & 2016 plans
fall fuji pika
What was new in 2015?

I'm using LJ and Twitter a lot more. Well, I made my LJ back in 2007 and Twitter in 2008. Used both on and off throughout the years. I still need to lj more like make better posts about my life cuz I don't keep a journal which I really should...


Meme taken from splash. I'm lazy and did only less than half and had this draft saved for weeks. LOL.

1. What did you do in 2015 that you'd never done before?
-Sold at Fanime Swap Meet! Make a good amount. :D

- Collected more Pokemon goods

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I never really make ones. I just hope for a better year with better opportunities... But I think I should this year because Year or the Monkey and I'm getting to my mid 20s soon..

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
My cousin recently

4. Did anyone close to you die?
N/A

5. What countries did you visit?
I have not been out of the US since November 2000.. Omg 15+ years... I was a kid when I went to Hong Kong and Guangdong province in China where my family is from. I also have not been out of state.. The farthest I've been is to the San Diego so that's the closest I've been almost out of the country haha.

6. What would you like to have in 2016 that you lacked in 2015?
A better job! More money! A pipe dream for David and I to have our very own place...

Go to more places? Go hike more, go up SF more and check out places I've haven't been to.

Finally go out of the country especially to Japan (one of my biggest wants) and Hong Kong (first place I went to, only time I went out of the country)

David would love to visit Japan as well and his paternal grandfather was an orphan from Hong Kong.

7. What date from 2015 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
Besides my birthday where I went to SF and had a good time. 12/13 easy to remember.. Haha the year before it was 12/13/14

Um Halloween was cool I actually did something on Halloween this year. Went to the Final Fantasy: A New World concert!

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I guess just being more active on the Internet and getting into Pokemon collecting.

Honestly, I can't really think of anything big. It's getting near a year and half at my current job and I got a raise.

9. What was your biggest failure?
Not making more money as in not having a better job or going back to school and studying. I was hoping that Raymond and Trent could get me into G... If only I told Trent I was interested... Had no idea someone with minimal qualifications like Raymond can get the job. Even though the the shifts suck because every month you have a new schedule and work odd hours. But the money and it's the Big G. Free food and yeah all that good stuff.

It seems like this year I just concentrated on my hobbies instead of going back to school.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
I missed a few days of work early this year when I had a nasty cold/flu... Also had UTI problems for the first time >_>

I tripped badly on the way to work.. I had to wear a knee brace. So I was limping pretty badly for some days. It would hurt to sit down and bend over.

I also went to the ER for the first time. Nothing serious.. The hospital sucks so the waiting time tool hours and I didn't get treated but the EKG test they ran was fine. But it was very scary when I loss consciousness and blacked out. I guess I was too dehydrated after running to the bus stop or something with my body since I wasn't eating right and feeling no motivation during that time.

Luckily I don't get sick during summer or fall...

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Lots of stuff. I can't pick for Pokemon. I love it all.

12. Whose behavior merited celebrating.
Bernie Sanders

13. Whose behavior made you appalled?
The GOP. A few Pokemon sellers/collectors on Facebook

14. Where did most of your money go?
Pokemon and rent...

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Going to Anime Expo, Pokemon anniversary coming up, Pokemon GO annoucement, Pokemon Worlds announcement in SF coming this year!

----
things I'm excited for this year...

Anime Expo's 25th anniversary! (David bought a pass so he's going for the first time along with a Canadian friend)
Pokemon World's in SF

Oh yeah, I am hopeful things work out and I somehow get my foot in at a contractor/vendor at The Big G. I could really use the money to go to Japan finally and travel more. I want to make progress in life cuz this year is my zodiac year... I will be in my mid 20s soon. Gosh where has the time gone. I wish I was 22 again.

Anyways, I'll try to LJ more now.

fall fuji pika
Hello everyone! 2015 was my first year of serious Pokemon goods collecting as I joined the community back in December 2014 and have learned so much and found a new enjoyment! I didn't get back into Pokemon until 2013 and bought some goods here and there from 2013 to 2014 until.. I found out about the Little Tales promotion and the Mega Tokyo/Pikazard... and I was hooked... I had a LJ account for years and didn't even know about the community till late 2014. and here are are one month away from the anniversary. It's great to be a collector now!

This post will serve as my one year anniversary post/first year of seriously collecting (it should have been posted last month ^^;;). By seriously collecting... I was buying stuff from Japan every month -- either Pokemon Center promotions or items on Yahoo Japan!

It's a super long post where I typed up what I got for each month. I also am sharing the 2015 Pokemon Bi Monthly calendar pages which will separate each 2 month period. Hopefully I remember when I got each promo/when they were released. XD

Happy Friday! I am very fortunate to live here in the San Jose area (Northern California) where there are three major Japanese supermarkets and the Japanese bookstore chain Kinokuniya that are very close by. I like to do some pickups for the community for those who don't live near Japanese markets and Kinokuniya. This gives me an excuse to actually go out and check out the stores more frequently. :D

If anyone is interested in these items from the bookstore and supermarket, check it out!
