How to live life, ways of life

Today I didn’t meet up with the Morning Musume girls,
actually the girls came over to my house yesterday
to drop off Valentine’s candy ♪


Everyone’s candies are so cute (≧∇≦)


I got hand-made ones from lead Takahashi Ai-chan
and 8th gen member Mittsi – Mitsui Aika-chan ♪♪
Mittsi made me some hand-made rusk*!
* a hard, dry biscuit
Rusk is delici-usk…♪ hehe m(_ _)m


And for leader Ai-chan!!
Her’s is the 2nd pic, what do you think it is?


And no, it’s not inori* (lol)
* Sweet wrap rice roll


It’s like some kind of sweet potato pastry (◎o◎)


Um.. Ai-chan! This…
can stand up on my hand… (lol)


Excellent pose ↑ (lol)


It’s got like a “My aren’t you something” disposition


Compared to normal sweets, it’s cuter but like in a more modest way


Although the pastry can’t stand up reliably (≧∇≦)


But even a pastry can lose sight of it’s true self


durability, durability (lol)
elegance, elegance (lol)


As for me, I’m the same way, always expecting to fall, even for things that aren’t scary


But I have learned how to live from Ai-chan’s pastry


I have also discovered the goal of Ai-chan’s pastry in life


And now for the flavor…


It’s go..good!


It’s pretty amazing that it tastes so good even though it looks like this ♪


Actually, what I said about the looks of Ai-chan’s pastry was kinda mean (>_<)


But um… honestly, it does look pretty bad


But it was delicious so I ate it all (⌒~⌒)♪♪


With such an amazing pastry, of course I have to savor it ↑


Ai-chan is truly something else ♪


I’ve discovered yet another charm point of hers (≧ε≦)
Kyuuuun (*^o^*)


Anyway, as for now ☆
I am heading out to a place where everyone hates!
Where do you think it is?
I’ll give you a hint…
that (;_;)


Ahh how unpleasant ↓
I’m so nervous ↓↓


I’m going to fall like the pastry Ai-chan gave me (≧ヘ≦)


Be sure to compliment me if I make it back in one piece (>_<)


Here I go…

Bloody Monday

Hey hey, it’s already over but…
Did you see yesterday’s Bloody Monday?


I just loooooooove the Bloody Monday drama!!!!
I’ve been a big fan since season 1…
Last year, they said that season 2 would start on January 23rd


I’m so glad to be alive———–!


…is what I thought!!
At that time though, I was a little down…
But there was something to live for!
So, Blood Monday gave me a reason to keep on going
And so, waiting for that January 23rd…


The long awaited episode 1…


Everything was better than I expected ”(ノ><)ノ They did everything exactly the opposite of what I predicted (lol) As the whole thing was building up, my heart was beating so fast the entire time (≧∇≦)! And, I ended up crying out loud by myself at midnight while watching episode 1 (ノ△T)。 Anyway, this drama is amazing I'm completely hooked


Also, the content matter of the show is difficult at times
So I’m always like “Hey, so what happened just now?”
to my mom who’s right next to me… (lol)


Whenever there’s something I don’t understand or some difficult parts to follow
I pause, think about it, rewind, and then listen again really carefully


That is how super focused I am


So that’s why, for me… a 1 hour drama takes me 1 hour 15 minutes to watch!!


And yesterday’s…
episode 4…


Well there may be people who haven’t seen it yet,
so I won’t give out any spoilers


But it was nuts


Saturday’s are the highlights of my week because I watch Bloody Monday (lol)


Bloody Monday is so intense!!!!!!!!!!!

To my lips

Good morning ♪♪


Today is Valentine’s Day (≧∇≦)


I am giving chocolates to all the people around me
who have helped me so much ↑


I got all the same ones since I had to get so many
again, because I have so many people helping me…


and so, the number of chocolates I need… (・_・)..


Ya know what, my lips have been hurting since a little while ago (;_;)


Whyyyy \(+×+)/


And like, it’s chapped so its super red
And also, it’s swollen so its super huge


It’s like I smothered them with bright red lip gloss (>_<)


I guess I don’t need any lip gloss today ♪


Lip gloss substitute ♪


Saving money woot ↑
Better mood woot ↑↑


See, I’m careful during these times of recession ↑↑↑


ok so maybe that’s not the same thing ↓


If I ice down my lips, the swelling temporarily goes away
However, my mood goes away as well too…
But if my lips swell up again
My mood comes back (>_<)


My lips and mood are inversely related I guess


Seems like my lips are gonna go back and forth today…


Lips, please don’t make me stand out


Lips, is it because you want my complete attention?


Why did you insist on swelling up all of the sudden?


Up til now, you’ve never intruded in like this before!
You’ve always been a good kid!


Is this teenage rebellion?


You know, you aren’t in a position to intrude in like this


You are supposed to support me silently, like a shadow


Lips!! Please don’t waste my time


Got that, lips?


Hurry now, go from your intruding swell back to normal..


Small things

As I said in the previous blog, that certain member is…


Morning Musume’s sub-leader Niigaki Risa-chan~♪↑


I can’t show the outfit so instead I’ve covered
everything up with hearts (≧∇≦)


Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day!
So with that in mind, this pic isn’t so bad right?!
Hehe (`∇´ゞ


It seems that Gaki-san reads my blog cuz when I wrote
I had caught a cold, she was the first to mail me about it


She’s so kind (;_;)


I always taking for granted Gaki-san’s kindness and her small face


My heart hurts… (>_<)


I want to be as caring to other around me just like Gaki-san!


I want to have a small face just like Gaki-san!


Although the small face thing might hard
considering skeletal structure and other problems


As for the kindness, I can do that some how…


You know what, from now on I’m gonna follow Gaki-san’s example


Time to get a face massage ↑↑↑ (lol)


Sigh… At this rate I’ll never be that kind ↓
I don’t think God will grant me a small face either ↓↓
Getting a small face is a long ways off isn’t it (;∇;)/~~


Seems like I’ve developed a small heart too… let alone a small face




That makes your tongue click… (lol)


Aw man
Messing around with tongue clicks like this… I really do have a small heart (;_;)

Chocolate ★

Just the other day, I went out to shop for Valentine’s Day chocolates ☆


Every year I do an exchange with the Morning Musume members, the managers,
the people who help out at the company, my grandpa,
my father, my brother, people I meet on that day,
and on years when I’ve made too much, I give some to the taxi drivers too ♪


Last year, I worked really hard on making the chocolates


and I mailed some back along with some famous brand-name Macarons
to my grandpa that I love so much back in Yamaguchi


“The macarons were delicious” – completely ignoring my chocolates…
was the honest thanks he gave me (lol)
So this year… I bought chocolates instead o(`▽´)o


Hm… so what was it I wanted to say today…


Oh, I love sweets!!!!!


Whenever we have a huge stock of chocolates and chocolate-flavored sweets
I end up eating them all


Actually, earlier I ate some…
And actually… it was 4 people’s worth… ah…
I gotta go buy some more again…


But ya know ↑
Giving them out without sampling isn’t proper right? (lol)
That’s why it was necessary to eat 4 people’s worth of chocolates…
Although, that wasn’t my intention…
But they were so delicious!!! (≧∇≦)


Giving these out to everyone without knowing that delicious flavor
would have been frustrating (lol)
So, I’m glad I tried them ♪
Delicious food is just happiness isn’t it (*^o^*)♪


Valentine’s is so fun ♪♪


Today, all of Morning Musume had work together ☆★


I took a 2 shot with a certain member (^_^)v


I’m still checking if it’s ok for me to show the outfit,
so in the meanwhile enjoy a pic I took of myself m(_ _)m

Global economic recession

So I was out, and what the… snow in Tokyo!? o(`▽´)o


It was cold, but for some reason, when it rains it’s kinda gloomy
but snow is kinda happy (≧∇≦)☆


But ya know, I didn’t have an umbrella ↓
So I went to the nearest convenience store ⇒ ε=ε=┏( ・_・)┛


In addition to the umbrella, I was hungry
so I bought 1 rice ball and some tea


Then at the register…


The total was 741 yen
I took out a 1000 yen bill, but then I thought… I wonder if I have any coins
So I checked to see if I could hear any coins rattling


For some reason, I had a ton
so I was like, well I should use some of them then


First, I found a 1yen coin


Well, pretty good so far


Then I took out 2 100yen coins, 200yen total


I think this is where things started to go wrong


So as for the 741 yen, I gave 1201 yen


I figured in my head that I should get 560 yen back,
I was expecting a 500 yen coin


But in actuality…
I only got 460 yen back




When did the world become like this!?


Is it because of the global recession that they docked me 100 yen!?


Or perhaps… they inputted it into the register wrong!?
Or perhaps… the store register was broken!?


…or perhaps I miscalculated!?


Even now I’m still not sure (?_?)


But in the end, my purse was still rattling from the change…
I ended up with more coins ( ̄○ ̄;)


The shop clerk with my change has this weird expression too,
for some reason he was sweating a lot (・_・;)


I, however ♪
was able to hide it, but I was panicking inside ”(」゜□゜)」


Even now though, I still believe that I didn’t make a calculation mistake
I’m stubborn like that…


Ahhh… I hope the recession ends soon…


My mood and my wallet is heavy…


And you know how my last name… is Michishige, right?
After the michi, is shige (lol)
*shige = heavy

Fruits ♪

Good morning ♪


Yesterday the usual staying up late Sayumi went to sleep early ☆


Although I woke up a few times, I had a really good night’s rest!!!! (^_^)v
And thanks to that ♪
I’m back to 100% ↑
Thank you


I guess regular eating habits, sleeping habits,
and lifestyle in general are important huh


So everyone, whether it be school, studies, homework,
work, things that don’t require thinking…
things that I can’t even imagine…
all those things that make you busy, despite that
please try to eat properly and sleep properly ♪


Having said that, for breakfast today
I had a chocolate scone and a persimmon from yesterday’s radio show

I also like figs

I also like blueberries

Matching set ♪

Okkkk ☆

Oyasayumin ♪♪


I also got to take a 2 shot with Yasuda-san (^_^)v☆♪


I kinda have a weird facial expression though (>_<)


Yasuda-san is just too nice, she simply is too nice.


Despite all of the rude things I’ve said on
variety shows and other various shows
She has such a huge heart that she just takes everything in


What’s more, she listens to me when I need to have a serious talk
and she also gives me her opinion on things


She makes it easy to understand
and also says everything in a gentle way
She’s such a kind senpai (^O^)


And also, one thing for sure about Yasuda-san


is that she’s so funny ♪


I know right? ♪ ~θ(^0^ )


I also just love how “Yasuda Kei” sounds
so even when she’s not around
I use her as the punchline of many jokes (lol)


Yasuda-san is so funny ♪

I’ve been saying about her…

Usa-chan peace ♪
