Welcome to ChiruPon no Sekai, the place where ChiruPon will be posting all her important and semi-significant stuffs.

Yep. The lovable and absolutely wonderful ChiruPon is back! Why? Well...mostly due to a combination of these things:
2) Post-graduation depression.
3) Lack of a decent job.
That's right- I am no longer a minor! Well I haven't been since January, but now I'm not only not a minor (redundant is redundant) I am now not a minor with a diploma in...high school stuff. Excitement, or either an incredible depression (see #2) is what I have at this moment.
As for my lack of a decent job, I currently work at a day care. And we're not talking Pokémon here. It's not like you drop your egg/baby off, go take a few steps then come back to pick it up. It stays for hours and hours and drools on you. I get paid ten dollars an hour which is actually a great salary for someone my age...except I only work one a week. I applied to maybe five other places (I don't have a car, so everything I apply to has to be either in walking distance, or the bus has to stop there) and they all rejected me...well, since most of them didn't bother contacting me, I think the more correct term would be that they all ignored me. Slightly worse, because at least the other places bothered telling me that I wasn't good enough.
My confusion? Well, I'm always somewhat confused so I don't know how that's new. Around 12 in the afternoon, it was really dreary. Now that it's 4:27 PM, it's really bright and sunny. This place always has freaky weather.
But anywho, comment, enjoy, and I'll write more later!
P.S. I'm thinking of getting a Wordpress account. Why? Well, it'd be nice to have a (real) blog. I used to have a Xanga, which was actually pretty fun, much more fun than a Facebook or MySpace. Something about people actually reading how your day was and commenting on it makes it a little more fun than writing Facebook messages, which are really no different from e-mails.
[EDIT] Here it is, my SHINY NEW WORDPRESS ACCOUNT! :D Please clicky and leave me a comment. Like with this journal here, if you leave me a comment on my journal, I will always leave one back on yours.
School is over and I never was able to go to Graduation to say goodbye to all the seniors. Next year, I will be a senior, and then I, too, will be forced to say farewell (for good). Life is short and I am starting to feel the symptoms of the disease we call old age.
That was what I was feeling yesterday.
Today, to celebrate the end of the school year, I had my last three wisdom teeth pulled. Apparently, I am "really light" because the doctor said I fell asleep as soon as they stuck the intravenous drip (IV) into me. Not only that, but unlike my sister who woke up almost as soon as they took the IV out, I continued sleeping for many hours later. I honestly do not recall how it happened, but I do remember voices. (My hypothesis is that my brain awoke, and my body remained asleep- I forget what this phenomenon is called, but we learned about it in Psychology.) I kept hearing, "Wow, she's really light" over and over again, as well as, "We gave her such a small dose and she's like this...."
I suppose this means that I should stay away from narcotics, because they are extremely effective? Ah well, I have not had anything but yogurt or water today, so as you can see, I am not a very happy camper right now. (Meanwhile everyone is having spaghetti and meat balls- I love spaghetti and meat balls, by the way.)
I have been having a cruddy winter- a sad experience for the cold loving fiend, such as myself. Winter has so far consisted of a terrible cold, SAT practice, wisdom teeth extraction, the oral surgeon messing up said teeth extraction, the utter disappointment in knowing that even if the finals are aced, the report card will have mostly B's, and the attainment of a terrible Trojan that destroyed the innards (of the computer, of course). I managed to clean up most of the wicked stuff in my computer's registry, although it bothers me that some of the files are still there. They are harmless now, but it still manages to urk me. Finals will be over soon (after this week), so the torture of failure and disappointment will temporarily vanish. My teeth no longer ache, and my terrible cold has faded away (although now I am catching something else).
The Dark Ages are over.....mostly.....
Oh a happier note, after not logging into the Otaku for so long, it pleased me to see the birthday wishes. Although I did not reply to most of the messages, I am very grateful and appreciate the gesture- I hope everyone reading this receives a bounty of new year's luck. (BUT if the luck don't hit you, it ain't my fault. Your ancestors might have cursed you.)
P.S. My Blog Buddy, ichi haze has been inactive lately (although, coming from me, it does not mean much), so I need a new one. Please comment here if you would like to be my Blog Buddy! For those who do not know, a Blog Buddy (patent pending) is someone you agree to exchange blog comments with- it is nice to know that people actually read your blogs, eh?
I received a new PC in the mail today! Yay! I was so excited, I took pictures of the box and all the parts with my (no longer in service) cellphone. If I ever figure out how to move the pictures from the phone to the computer, I will post the pictures! The computer is so prettiful. Even the box it came in is pretty. xD
My latest obsession is Foxkeh, the adorable fox born in Japan! Foxkeh is the Mozilla Firefox's mascot for promotional activities in Japan. The name is a mixture of the English word "fox" and a popular ending for boy's names in Japan, "suke" (like Kyosuke, Kensuke, Keisuke, Taisuke, etc.), so in actuality, the name should be spelled "Fokusuke" (how it is spelled in Japanese). His blog promotes not only the internet browser, but Shiretoko National Park. For those who do not know, every new version of Mozilla Firefox is named after a national park (the most recent version is named "Shiretoko"). If you check out Foxkeh's blog, it even has a bunch of transparent PNGs for you to make graphics with. (laugh) For the spirit of cute things, I ended up grabbing a render and drawing up the banner you see. I even changed my "Persona" (for non-Firefox users, it is sort of like a layout for your web browser- just another reason to love Mozilla) into a Foxkeh theme (He has his own section of Personas to choose from.) My personal favorites would be Hanami, Tanabata, and Canoe. If you have not scoped out the Foxkeh Personas, yet, you should really check it out!
[P.S.] Foxkeh is not the only online mascot. If you are curious for more cute foxes, their names are Kit (America), G-Fox (China), and Foxmosa (Taiwan). The character designs are incredibly culture based (the art is made to suit every audience). Personally, I think Foxmosa is the cutest, and it is not just because I am Taiwanese. (After Foxmosa, it would be Foxkeh, G-Fox, and Kit.) If anyone is wondering why I am obsessed with Foxkeh, but I like Foxmosa better, well, that is simply because Foxkeh has more pictures and Personas.
