hi guys ♥

did you have a good week?

the heat wave is awful here, i can't wait for it to be over, this is a real suffering
but my neighbours went on holiday yesterday and we are catsitting, which is nice, the poor sweetheart is really suffering from the heat though, she's a really old calico and her fur is extremely thick so we set up a little station for her outside with some food and water(she does not eat when it's warm, so we decided to just put a little bit of food there so she can eat a little if she wants to when she comes for a drink) and a nice thing she can lay on that's not too warm but she just wants the grass, well that's fine lol, poor thing.
i hope you guys are able to take good care of yourself and your pets ♥

I was about to comment " the heat wave made a comeback"
It's only 34° where I live but up north they got some 42°

Meanwhile some assholes are washing their cars, men I swear

My cat exclusively eat at night these days
Although it's hot check how much she drinks
If she drinks too much it might be a sign of a renal dysfunction

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend! I worked from home this week, but only like 20 easy hours, so it was basically a chores/staycation (like the DMV, etc.) So nice, and now I'm off on a travel vacation to the rocky mountains.

What does a mermaid wash her fins with? [Spoiler (click to open)] Tide.
aures 26th-Jul-2019 11:12 am (UTC)
oh i'm so jelly about you going to the rocky mountains! isn't it warm though? or not much?

Someone in a previous FFA mentioned watching China's Produce 101 and I've now been watching it, on ep5 so far. It's quite different from the Korean version? At least the how the contest progresses (it's been a while since I've seen the SK one so I might not know for sure). I think their format is quite refreshing compared to the original.

I fee like the CH version emphasized more the team work and uplifting the contestants instead of always focusing on the drama and pitting people against each other. It's also giving more insight into the reality of filming a contest like this, the reality of an idol, and the relationship between the girls and the judges is a lot closer and more familiar? Which I think is nice bc it's not like the judges go easy on them at all but they're also not being unnecessarily harsh. The girls are also (idk were they told or something) a lot motivated to perceive the show as a team contest so they really try to work as a team (so far) instead of thinking of solely themselves and some of the girls that got chosen leaders so far have been very impressive to me in their mentality and leadership.

The songs they perform are also not all typical idol-group-typa songs which is refreshing, and sometimes they incorporate Chinese traits in the songs or outfits and it's quite cool to see from a foreigner's pov.

They have a lot more commercials than the SK version tho lol but I like that they use the girls in the ads, it's makes it more fun to watch them (expect when they "trick" you into watching an ad by not telling you straight but everyone's acting normal and then suddenly they whip out the product and you realize the whole scene's been scripted lol I don't like THOSE but otherwise it's a nice concept).

i have no idea what you are talking about but just wanted to say hi to you; did you have good week? ♥

THE HEAT WAVE. It was unbearable, it's still extra-hot in my flat and I don't know when the temperature will cool down since I'm only facing south/can't easily make the air flow. Public transports are horrible too, there are still so many people, why aren't they all on holidays??? I'm so thankful that my job at least has air-conditioning.
I celebrated my brother's birthday and it was a great, chill evening! but I'm feeling so unwell today, I'm hangover, tired from a whole week not sleeping well, and my stomach aches, this is going to be a long day.
/rant over lol

Nothing planned this weekend for once, I really can't wait lol. I want to do nothing but stay in my flat XD I'll probably leave to buy some plants for my balcony, but nothing more
aures 26th-Jul-2019 11:15 am (UTC)
i'm glad you had a good time with your brother, but hangovers suck, especially with this heat wow - next time down 1 water for ever glass of alcohol, it really helps

i'm also super tired from not sleeping because of the heat and the heat also can really make your stomach upset >.<
let's hope it'll be over soon

i hate public transportation when it's warm, especially because it stinks so much (sweaty ppl yuck)

do you have a good fan at home though?

Ppl who went to Twicelights in Chicago, how did you like it???
dior_chic RE: TWICELIGHTS27th-Jul-2019 01:00 am (UTC)
I loved it!!!! One of the best concerts I ever went too, those girls know how to put on a show!!

I’d say it was like 60% girls and 40% boys audience wise. My section of seats had some hardcore Jeongyeon fans! I was kinda sad as I didn’t see as much Sana-colored candy bongs or whatever they’re called. But when I saw everyone switch to mint for Mina it was really sweet ☺️

The production value was way higher than I expected. The only thing was the song set list - I support that they can’t dance the whole show and needed slower tracks to regain stamina/take a break, but I’m only into like one or two Twice ballads, and only one I liked was included lol so those parts dragged a bit for me. But otherwise I loved the show!!

The girls are so charming, I can see why Jihyo is the leader as her taking the lead came so naturally to her.

Oh with the JYPE highlight in the beginning, I loved the support the older groups/artists got. Sure Wonder Girls, Miss A, Rain, and 2PM got less screams than GOT7 and surprisingly Day 6, but I’m an older fan that was still glad they got recognition

lil_poisonfrog Tokyo Idols26th-Jul-2019 12:16 pm (UTC)
I also wanted to see if anyone here has watched the documentary Tokyo Idols from 2017? I saw it a couple weeks ago. It's quite eye-opening to say the least. There's some things I would've changed about the format (it could've used more exposition in general) but overall I liked it. If you're curious about the Japanese idol scene at all it's def worth watching.
aures Re: Tokyo Idols26th-Jul-2019 01:29 pm (UTC)
the japanese idol scene is so different from the korean one, but somehow also very similar in ways

was it purely female idols or did they also cover male?

DKDKTV is in SHAMBLES atm since Danny decided to be hasty & brash yet again.

I do think ARMYs can be a bit extra - or a lot extra - but it was less him expressing being tired the group and more of how Danny responded to criticism by being foul in his own comment section and on Twitter afterwards. Like, he is MESSY and needs to grow up and I feel for David having to feel responsible for him and upload (and delete) a video in apology on behalf of the channel.

Morning Omona! How long should I wait before emailing about a job application I submitted? I’ve been trying to get a job here in the city instead of commuting to my job that’s like an hour away and I’m so anxious! EMplOyErs plEaSE RESPOND! I’ve applied for librarian positions but I’m at this point willing to do anything. My roommates and I found an apartment that we’re viewing tomorrow and hopefully we can get it. Sooo I need to save more money before that lease!

Anyways the heat finally broke this week because I thought I was literally going to vomit from heat exhaustion when I went to that cubs game last week. My towns music fest is tonight so I’ll be drunk and getting paid for it! Have a good weekend Omona!
gathyou 26th-Jul-2019 02:53 pm (UTC)
Have a great party tonight!!!

I don't know how it is in your country but overall, I think two weeks would be a good waiting time?
I've been on the other side and it's daunting to answer every application (especially when you have 50+ applications at once lol) on top of reviewing everything/picking which persons to call, but I'm really trying because it sucks having to wait without answer.
shalottlady07 26th-Jul-2019 02:24 pm (UTC)
Hi Omona!
Sorry for everyone suffering with the heat wave. I hope you all find ways to stay cool.
I’m back after three weeks in Korea/Japan and am seriously having a hard time adjusting. I miss it so much and it was nice to go back after a decade.
I went in with a music “list” and failed at sticking to it SO BADLY. Like I’m actually a little embarrassed by how much I bought, but everything was so much cheaper and I found a number of things that are out of print!
Also, My First First Love comes back today and I’m so excited!!! Immediately starting after work. Anyone else??
Have a good weekend. ❤️
gathyou 26th-Jul-2019 02:55 pm (UTC)
That's amazing! Where did you travel in Korea and Japan?
Out of print albums? omg that makes me so excited for my own trip in October XD I have also decided to go with a music list, I hope I don't exceed it too much x)

Hello omona, happy Friday and weekend! For those in the heatwave please take care! It seems that I left Europe just in time to get away from the heat, which is good because I find that I'm coping worse and worse with it as I age...

Wedding last week was a success. It was cold and gray and all the wedding pics will have a beige/gray/dark backdrop lol. But the couple and families seemed happy. The food was actually good! And the cake was tragic, what a plot twist!

[Sorry for the pessimism that will follow]

I'm on holiday at the moment but still applying for jobs so it doesn't feel very relaxing. If anything there's just even more time to be existential and think of worst case scenarios lol.

I've sent an obscene amount of applications in the past few months, all tailored to what ever shitty position it is, often having contacted relevant people in advance, and it's pretty dead at the moment as lots of people are on holidays, but I'm still just SO FUCKING SICK of this process. And no end in sight.

I applied for some freelance translation work as well, and they made me do a couple of partial translations as well as send existing portfolio, and those test translations were around 15 fucking pages, and the NERVE of them instead of sending a rejection note they just never got back to me (it's been months). I spent over a week doing this shit. I would honestly rather take a rude email saying you suck thx but no thx than radio silence after going through interview + sending my portfolio and completing their bullshit "test". Oh and did I mention this shit would've been unpaid?

I also feel that the longer this process goes on the worse my presentation skills become, as I'm already a cynical person, and with all this horrible experience my confidence is also in the shitter, so surely this must leak out to the people I'm trying to "impress". Meh.

Also PS did anyone watch Veronica Mars?

I'm sorry for all those in the heat wave. I know it especially sucks cause most of your homes are built to keep heat in :(( people forget that when they make jokes about the reaction online

Those portable battery powered fans kpop groups keep putting out seemed silly to me before but now that I'm having to walk everywhere since my cars in the shop this week I get it and i want one for each hand rn
gathyou 26th-Jul-2019 07:18 pm (UTC)
Yes! I don't own one yet but used one yesterday evening that sprayed water at the same time and it felt amazing, I need one

our heat hasn't been so terrible lately due to a few weather systems bringing clouds and rain. i really enjoy our daily thunderstorms!

i've been stuck in the house all week; partly cause i had nowhere to go, mostly cause i don't even have enough money to go into town. i just sold an old phone for some $$ but i have to be able to get to the post office to send it. 😐
blck_ink 26th-Jul-2019 06:41 pm (UTC)
hiiii everyone 👋🏽

this heatwave has been kicking my aaaassss!!! luckily this weekend the tempatures will drop a bit so hopefully i'll be able to just breathe again.

more people have been resigning which means more work for me (fml). i don't if i should see this as a sign to also leave or ask for a raise 😂.
