Hey everyone! Long time no see! I be so busy lately. Putting together programs and travelling back and forth from Japan to Canada has been so draining. I finally get a week off to just relax. I kick off vacation by running with the Olympic torth. It was so much fun! I feel so priviledged to carry Olympic torth for Athens!

[OOC- ok guys, im leaving for vacation and will be gone for 2 weeks. Take care!!!]

Here some pics of me carrying torth!

Thank you Tara for the beautiful icons!! You always make such pretty ones! *hugs* Thank you!!

Hmmm? whats new with me? So far, I had a nice looong vacation and now Nabou wants to start working on my new programs. Yes, ive decided to keep competing. After worlds I considered turning pro because i just wasnt sure if i was up for the challenge. I mean Shizuka and Miki both had a wonderful worlds and Yoshie is now working with a wonderful new coach. I guess i kinda felt i let everyone down. but after worlds while on tour i talked to alot of skaters and they all gave me similar advice: You never know what could have happened until it actually happens. Its true, i was setting myslef up for bad future seasons but they not happen yet so i felt like i had lightbulb moment, so yes- as i digress- im going to stay amateur!!

I have gotten great reviews for my paper fan exhibition and i think i going to keep it. The first one i had was good but the second seemed to relate to the audience more. Lori said we will work to have that same 'thing' in my LP next season.

Alright, im off to go shopping and then my first practice with Nabou in over two weeks, yikes. Maybe i should pack a few tylenols while im at it.

Toodles!

eeeee! Flying out tomorrow morning, and still havent started packing. Its going to be a loooong night! I dont want to forget anything... I have to make sure not to forget to take Laptop cable so i can update while in dortmund. Silly me forgot when i went to GPF.

Practices were awesome today. Lori helped me touch up some few loose strings but for the most part i am all set. I dont know what i do without Lori and Nabou... they my lifelines. I have the best team. Somehow i survived all 4 practices today and now all i have to worry about is getting packed and meeting everyone at the airport in a couple of hours.

*waves* *bows* See you in Dortmund! ANyone want postcard???? :o)

Time:8:15 pm.
Mood: nervous.
oh goodness, worlds is around the corner and i getting very nervous! I feel ready, i practice so much it hurt and i ready to go shine in deautchland... :o)

Tomorrow is my last practice in japan. Lori is here to do last-minute touch-up on parts of programs to make sure i have it all right... then we all fly out to Europe on thursday. I dont want to fly out to late and have problem with visa or something so just to be safe, we fly extra day. First practice is Friday. Hopefully, jet lag will disappear... *crosses fingers*

I got new dress for short program but i still bringing the black pants/dress in case i change mind... Jan really like the black pant/dress so maybe i should listen to him and keep it, oh we'll see. I going to miss him, Jan cant come to Worlds this year. I dont know what i'll do without him. He always bring me so much luck and strength. But i bringing ALOT of phone cards.

I actually have two preeeeeeetty dresses for the dinenrs/formals at worlds. What you think? I walk into jcrew here in mall and they have in my size so i splurge and got them. What you think?

This one for the Opening ceremony dinner: http://www.jcrew.com/catalog/product.jhtml?id=prod63101901&catId=cat56907&rltdProd=&colorCode=BK0001&colorName=BLACK&reco=&title=&suiting=

and this one for the late brunch a couple of my skating friends organizing the sunday of exhibition gala afterwards: http://www.jcrew.com/catalog/product.jhtml?id=prod62573901&catId=cat56907

argh, i not good at links. How do you put your own text in so the link no come up. It look so ugly! :o(

Alright, i run now... Need to pack and then get up for practice tomorrow, it going to be looooong day. 4 scheduled practices, yikes. Ok, bye bye all! Everyone get to Europe safe and i see you all soon!

*hates herself*

Wow, I have neglected this journal! That not good at all! I promise myself I would keep updating! Alright, that is what i work on for Lent, i promise to update more often. :o)

Alright, help me decide: I getting fitted for new 'back-up' short program dress because i get mixed reviews about the pants-and-skirt emsemble. I personally like the pants and think it'll add a lil something to the Worlds comp but what do you guys think? Should i keep or toss?

I finally watched GPF and i so proud of myself! I dont think i show so much emotion on ice since that fluff comp in bridgeport last season!!

Alright, im off to practice then im meeting Jan... he's such a sweetheart.

*sniffles* Fumie sick. :o( First week back at University and already I have sniffles. Weather here has not been very good. Too much rain, too little sun. This weekend i must tan before sun disappear again for the winter.

I take lot of interesting classes. Lot of new people in my classes. Jan is in my Literature 143 class. He such a sweetie. He brought me big bowl of chicken soup and flowers yesterday to cheer me up. He such a great friend.

Nabou say my LP still needs LOT of work. Lori might come to stay in Japan for a week to work with me. She no want to leave Canada but I cant leave University so she stay in my apartment while I on campus in school.

I miss everybody and cannot wait to see some of you in Campbell's, NYC.
