Take care of your health...

I haven't fully recovered from the flu + cough. It's been a week and I've been taking flu medicine, cough syrup, and even antibiotics. But when the flu is gone, the cough comes back. Then when the cough is gone, the flu comes back. It keeps going back and forth, which is so annoying.

Come to think of it, I'm not the only one who has health problems like these. My professors at school also got sick and they had to teach when they lost their voice. I felt bad for them. I don't even feel like talking at all when I lost my voice almost completely sometime ago.

Lots of my classmates and co-workers are also sick. Either fever, sore throat, cold, flu, or cough. I even heard that there was this one high school, only three students showed up (out of 30 students in a class). The rest of the students stayed at home because of getting sick.

My mom back home in Indonesia also told me that a lot of people over there got sick too recently. Man... this is bad.

Friends, please take a good care of yourself, ok? If you are already sick, hope you'll get better soon. I'm also hoping that I'll recover as soon as possible. Getting sick is so annoying. It prevents me from doing a lot of things that need to be done. x|

One by one, all the problems went away
With you there by my side, I'm not afraid
You held my hands tight, smiled and said,
"Don't give up. I'm here with you..."
With words as simple as those, I could feel your support

When I couldn't continue anymore, you came to the rescue
When my tears ran down on my cheeks, you lent me your shoulders
And when the success came, you said "Great job!"

Being shown your silly acts, I would laugh
Being treated with your kindness, I would feel grateful
Being stared at so deeply, and being told "I love you",
I would blush...
As if I was going to melt down...

But then I was thrown back from the land of the dreams
You, you're not here with me
No matter how much I wish, I know the infinite impossibilities
Having to face the reality, it hurts so much... so deeply...
Please, don't pull me to the painful surface

Oh, how I wish I could stay there forever...

After quite a long time successfully living this kind of life, my physical and mental capabilities finally broke down. Waking up around 7 am, leaving apartment at 7:30, working + school + club activities + job hunting + etc. non-stop without any break and finally going back home at 6 in the evening, continue with studying + other club activities + future planning and finally going to bed at 2 am. That's my lifestyle up until now. It was going so well but yesterday night I got sick. Pretty bad, to the point that I couldn't do things that I usually like to do. And today I just feel like resting at home without doing anything.

I hope tomorrow I can go back to the usual schedule because there are still so many things that need to be done!!!

Let's work hard, everyone!!! \(^o^)/

health and stamina

Today I had a job interview from 7:30 am to 4 pm. The interview itself started around 10 am to 3:45 pm, the rest were tour, presentation, and breaks. By the end of the day, I was so exhausted and I lost my voice -__-;;

It amazes me how singers (like HYDE and Keita!) can sing non-stop for 3-4 hours almost everyday for practices and concerts. To be able to stay fit without losing their voice, they must have taken care of their health very seriously. And to have such a strong stamina, they must have worked out consistently. They are just amazing ^^

Recently I've been watching w-inds. a lot. I used to listen to their music long time ago, around the time of '1st Message' album and the next album. At that time, I thought 'Oh look how cute the little boys are...' After that, I was so into Laruku that I forgot about it. ごめんね。。。^^;;

So then I was browsing through my CD collection and I saw this '1st Message' CD again so I thought to check what they have became. Oh my gosh, all of them have grown up to be かっこいい guys with wonderful talents. And guess what, all of them are older than me. Hahahahah... If at that time I thought of them as little boys, then I was even more little than that! =P

While buying Laruku's 'Chronicle 3', I decided to try watching one of w-inds. live tour. I bought Journey Live and it just captured my heart. Hahaha... Fantastic dance moves, fantastic songs, fantastic Keita, fantastic Ryuichi, and fantastic Ryohei. Ok, so I'm officially a big fan of w-inds. now. I bought three other w-inds. live DVD right away, since I'm going to get some extra money from a scholarship anyway. xD

Today I even opened an account in ameblo just because I couldn't post a comment on Tachibana Keita's blog if I'm not an ameblo user. With so much determination, I successfully opened an ameblo account in 30 minutes. Yep, it's not a typo. Seriously, it took me 30 minutes just to figure out what to fill on a certain field and which button I should click, etc. They were all written in Japanese and my Japanese level is still so low. Thanks to Altavista Babelfish translation machine, it wasn't a perfect translator but at least I was able to supply the necessary information, and start commenting on Keita's posts. Hehehehe...

By the way, if you're wondering how I could understand Keita's blog content, it's all thanks to the author of this site. Now I just need to find a site that translates Ryuichi's blog. Once I found one, I will open an account in Yahoo! Japan and start commenting on his posts as well. I would also like to post a comment on Ryohei's blog but I think the commenting system is disabled, just like w-inds. Keita's blog.

UPDATE: w-inds. Keita's blog has been closed now, but Tachibana Keita's blog is still there. I guess it's hard to manage two blogs at the same time.
