Having finally worked up the motivation to do some light editing, I present to you Ireny's HRL Journal, wherein may be found Cheap Gunpla, Bizarre Foods, and Lots Of Three Kingdoms Fangirling.

Onward! )

Number of mosquito bites on legs: 31.

Is it because I'm a fat American? DO I TASTE THAT GOOD? HUH?

Internet at our place in Taipei is finally up and running, which is just as well since course registration for JHU starts tomorrow at seven. >.> I'm currently far too exhausted to type anything even remotely coherent concerning what's happened since my last post, so I'm afraid you'll have to wait till tomorrow. Sorry!

I just managed to get internet on my laptop, but I'm not sure how long it'll last. D: Suffice to say that today was as busy as all the other days have been, and my feet hurt as usual, and I like sea lions.

...uh. I promise posts and things will be longer when I arrive in Taiwan on Saturday and actually have something resembling a reliable internet connection. >.>

So. Bags are packed, preparations are made. Tomorrow morning, my family and I are flying to Hong Kong. We'll spend a week there, then fly to Taiwan and stay about a week and a half before flying back to Hong Kong for a few days. We'll be back July 14.

I'm kind of nervous, to be honest; I haven't been back to Taiwan since I was born there (a little over sixteen years) and I've never been to Hong Kong at all. My Mandarin is horrifically bad, and I know a grand total of six phrases in Cantonese, picked up from my relatives in Toronto: "Eat food," "It tastes good," "Go to the bathroom," "Take a shower," "Go to sleep," and "Eat more vegetables."

But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited as well, despite the prospect of having to spend three consecutive weeks with no-one but my family as company. Mom and Dad have pretty much decided that it's Time To Make Ireny Reconnect With Her Culture - Romance of the Three Kingdoms is sitting in my carry-on luggage for the fifteen-hour flight - but I really can't say I mind at all. In fact, I'm kind of looking forward to it.

(...but because this is my mother we're talking about, and she knows me far too well for my own good, she's already started speculating whom I'm going to fangirl in Three Kingdoms. Currently her money is on Zhuge Liang.)

I'll attempt to keep a photo blog or something resembling that in the days to come, if anyone's interested. :) Other than that, I haven't got much to say at the moment. See you guys later!
