 As mentioned in my latest update of  "It Was Always You", I had been down with an illness for some time, and that is why I could hardly write.

Well... technically, it's a chronic skin condition called eczema.

I've had this condition for a while but it sort of toned down a few years ago. However, just a few months ago (during my examination period) , I had a very bad flare-up, and the inflammation only grew worse. It was to the extent that the angry red rash coated the entirety of my legs, my stomach and my arms. It's like wearing dark red, super itchy tights and arm warmers, except that I'm not able to take them off at all. 

Soon after my exams ended, I immediately decided that I needed to rest at home at least until the inflammation goes down. I've moisturised with Cetaphil (why the hell are they so fcking expensive) and used Emu oil as an emollient. 

Before long, my dad had a  "brilliant" idea of buying a homeopathy ointment that used emu oil. What I didn't expect was that a few days after, my skin broke out in a VERY violent reaction to the ointment, because it was too strong.

That had me bedridden again for a very long while before my skin calmed down again to its former inflamed condition. -.-

Thankfully, I visited the hospital yesterday and I was prescribed some really gentle moisturisers (I'm probably sticking to those and no other brand) , steroid creams, emollients and antihistamines ( THANK GOD FOR ANTIHISTAMINES).

Hopefully within 6 weeks to my next appointment, my inflammation would be gone. (: 

I'm thankful to every reader for your well wishes. So far, my skin is less red. It still itches every now and then, but at least I can sleep at night now ^^;

Now, in other news...

I FINALLY GET TO BREATHE IN AIR FROM JAPAN SOON.

My parents have settled on taking me to Hokkaido some time in October. It might be during my school term, but it is only for a short duration, so I will at most miss probably 1 lesson for a few subjects. But it's alright.

IT'S JAPAN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT, YO.
I GET TO BREATHE IN THE SAME AIR AS MY HUSBAND-sorry I mean - SAKURAI SHO <3

( okay maybe not the same air because technically he would be in Tokyo and I'd be in Hokkaido. So,... >.> )

My father is a fanatic in photography and has decided to go to Hokkaido for the autumn leaves XD But I'm not really sure there is much to do there. Maybe I'll just chill in the hotel ( like Nino probably will) if there is nothing much to do around the area /:

Any suggestions as to what I can do in Hokkaido? :D

 It's been way too long since I last posted anything at all. (:

Unfortunately, soon after my exams have ended, I had to finish my Nino exchange fic AND...

I came down with quite a serious case of the cold, and it basically meant that my body switches every now and then from being magma-melting hot to teeth-chattering cold. I'm a little bit delicate in the hot months, and unfortunately being in sunny Singapore does NOT help. ):

But thankfully, with a long amount of rest and a good amount of medication, I have begun to recover quite well and I might be back to writing again. 

So yeah, this is an unofficial announcement that I'm back! :D

 It hasn't been easy but I am FINALLY down to one last paper.

My Financial Reporting paper yesterday was totally sucky for  good reason.

They effing misprinted two financial figures.

I still recall that in my first university exam, my school actually had the gall to forget to give us our statistic tables for a statistic exam.
Over 2000 of us had to retake the paper just for that mistake lol.

And now, I unfortunately have no idea whether my answers in my paper yesterday are correct because I don't know if "$4,800,00'' is really $4,800,000 or $480,000. 


One might think that the only difference betwee "$4,800,000" and "$480,000" is just one zero.
But NO. It's a BIG difference of at least $4,320,000! 
The examiners really ought to start performing quality checks on their papers. How could they miss such a crucial error that wasted me time in my calculations? D<

Well... all of that is behind me now.
I can only hope for the best.

In other news, I'm only a week away from my last paper. HURRAH.

FREEDOM IS IN SIGHT. :D

 It's been a long while since I last posted- memorising stuff for my econs exam (which has always been my weakest subject) took half my life out of me. But at least it's over.

From now on, the only curves I will ever see are my own. ;D *wink wink*

But apparently, I did not have to wait for 26th May to get a flash of inspiration for my Nino Exchange fic, so thank goodness, I'm able to at least get a bit of a headstart to write SOMETHING to destress. Otherwise, I would be left with only 2 weeks to work on it with absolutely no leads whatsoever.

I know that I have been writing lots of Sakumiya lately, and unfortunately I can't help it because the prompts that inspired me to write just SO happened to fit in with the Sakumiya pairing all too well. >.>

*sigh* I need more Ohmiya in my life. I need more of my OT3, man. > v <

Alright, I might be down with one paper but I still have management accounting and financial reporting to deal with before my next breather. And essays for these two subjects... *shudders* hell on earth.

Wish me luck!

 MY ECONOMICS EXAM IS LESS THAN A WEEK AWAY IM GONNA CRY WAHHHHHHHH

*breathes*

Okay. It's okay. I STILL got this. I STILL GOT THIS. ; _ ;

Anyhoo...

A good number of years ago, I used a Macbook as my personal computer. I loved it so much that I named it Melvin.

(Yes, I name my favourite things. I have a typewriter named Tyler.
Yep. I'm weird that way XD)

My desk was right by the window (I liked it that way), and so my Macbook would always be right there.

And then one fine day... it rained while I was outside. And I forgot to close the window.

I can still remember Melvin's last waterlogged blink as he breathed his last and blacked out the screen.

; _ ; God rest my Macbook's soul.

Anyhow, I soon managed to get myself a new PC (I shifted my desk FAR away from the window now), and his name is Prometheus.
He is one big, lean, mean machine. <3

And that is why I can't take him out on the go even if I wanted to do my work or download my notes somewhere. I would have to lug ALL of him along. I currently resort to borrowing laptops (Windows 8.0 >.>;;; ) and iPads from my school library every time I have lessons. ><

Additionally, I already have an original novel idea I want to work on, and as much as I love my phone, I can't really see myself typing it on such a small screen. (I use Scrivener, and unfortunately it does not come with an Android version >.> )

So, I sort of arrived at the idea that I STILL need a laptop.

And after being torn between getting a Windows Tablet or a small Windows laptop, I saw this.




Welp. I'll be damned.
The ASUS Transformer Book is apparently both. LOL

AND I WILL FINALLY BE GETTING IT LATER IN THE MORNING.


FINALLY I do not have to keep swinging by the library to borrow a laptop / iPad in hopes that they were not all taken up already.

I will miss the librarians though. I'm sure they have seen my face so often that they know my first name all too well XD
 

Well, I'm going to sleep and catch maybe 4-5 hours of sleep before going out to study (and buy my tab-top).


Wish me luck for my exam paper on May 3rd ><

You know, I did think that moving to Dreamwidth was the right move.
But really, Livejournal?

http://ontd-political.livejournal.com/11781096.html>>> "Livejournal to Ban LGBTQ Content"

Damn I did NOT expect to be spot-on about the "gay propaganda" thing. I only hope they won't ever find me. Hehs ^^;

It seems that since I had to repost everything over from LJ to my fic comms here, it means I need to change the links for the masterposts too.

GAAAAAAHHH SO MUCH WORK OH LIVEJOURNAL WHY YOU DO DIS TO ME

*deep breath* It's okay. It's all good. *BREATHES*

Forgive me. I'm a little worn out from studying. XD

In other news, I'VE SIGNED UP FOR NINO-EXCHANGE~

Yes I have been doing a lot of exchanges lately, eh? XD
I'm truly excited for this particular exchange, since two of my top OTPs have Neen in it (Ohmiya, Sakumiya) .

I have a feeling that in spite of whatever pairing I'm asked to do, I'll still have some complicated love triangle thing between my OT3. Heehee.

Don't get any ideas. I have yet to think of anything. LOL I will only start working on my exchange fic after my last exam on the 26th of May.

Until then, I will only deal with working on administrative and maintenance stuff on my fic comms to destress. ; _ ;

CAN SOMEONE KIDNAP SHO TO ME TO HELP ME STUDY PLS THANKS SO MUCH XD
Meanwhile, this random song came to mind and it wouldn't go away. It often puts me in quite a mood.


"That summer night, my whole world tumbled down.
I could have died if not for you."

Well I think I took enough of a break. I should study again. ^^;

If you have logged into Livejournal recently, you would have noticed that there has been a new Terms of Service.
There is apparently no major change to privacy and data security, according to LJ.
But...
._.
I have no idea what they mean by major and minor changes. But if data privacy is going to be compromised in anyway (especially relating to famous Jpop groups) I would feel really unsafe. Fansubbing comms probably foresaw that danger and took measures to shift their comms to DW too.
Also, apparently accounts inactive for 6 months or so will be deleted (SERIOUSLY?!).

Therefore, I have made a decision with some other fanfiction writers to shift our fanfic communities and journals over to Dreamwidth.

What this move means:

1) Importing of fanfiction works

Don't worry if you aren't TOO open to the shift to Dreamwidth (DW) just yet- I will NOT be deleting this journal or teatimefics- I will simply be copying them over to a fanfic comm in DW. In future (probably in June or so), my new works will be cross-posted from DW to LJ.

2) Complete shift of NC-17 fics

I have absolutely no idea what the Russian laws dictate when it comes to content and data privacy (since I cannot read Russian), but a fellow fanfic writer suggested that I delete my NC-17 fics, just to be safe.

BEFORE YOU PANIC- these won't be wiped off the face of the Earth (heaven forbid if all my smoking-hot fics suddenly poofed), I have actually decided to set u another fanfic community EXCLUSIVELY for NC-17 - R content. I have actually toyed with this idea for a while since the start of 2017 but did not see the point of starting it in LJ (since most readers of my fics read it in TTF anyway). But since I would be moving to a new blogging platform.. why not? XD


If you want to join me in the shift to DW (in case things get bad on LJ and privacy is compromised), you can do the same. XD

My username on DW is unchanged: rainbow_teatime.
Feel free to add me in your circle if you DO go on DW.

Once I have set up the various communities, I will give an official "MOVED" announcement( along with the URLs to the two fanfic comms) here and on TTF so that no one misses out on this big step.

Finally, I want to thank EVERYONE on LJ who has commented or liked any of my fanfics- nothing really makes me happier than to learn that any of my works had made your day in one way or another. As I start moving to DW and cross-posting from there, I truly hope that my fanfic works could continue to do the same.

XOXO,

rainbow_teatime

P.S. Teatimefics' username on DW remains unchanged. But do not go there yet- it's still WORK-IN-PROGRESS. XD

Unfortunately, it is time for preparing for my exams (again) and it is an incredibly stressful time right now.

I have taken a bit of a break recently but I'm just about to put my nose back into the grindstone and focus entirely on my studies so that my return to the blissful, heavenly world of fanfiction would be really sweet. <3

I DO have some fics still half-done and I really want to finish those but I might be a bit slow on the writing because.. you know.. priorities. ;_;

( I really want to start working so that fic-writing could be the other thing I focus on apart from my job ._. )

So I'm just going to leave this post here and take a temporary leave from fanfic writing- I will be back by June 2017 when my exams for the year are over. ^^;

GANBARIMASU!
* \ ( ^ . ^ ) / *

P.s. I will probably still be around every now and then to check up on my comms and whatnot but that really is about it ^^;

rainbow_teatime: rainbow, teatime, rainbow_teatime (Default)

Mew.

Nope, I'm far from dead on livejournal. XD

I'm just in the middle of preparations for my final exams for the year. I'm already graduating a year late as it is and I'm just trying to realign my focus again.

Seeing that I have left my personal livejournal so SADLY neglected, I have decided to make a comeback here and give it a much-needed do-over.

I'm just going to post lots of random stuff whenever I feel like it, so please do not mind my passionate discussions whatsoever. :p

rainbow_teatime: rainbow, teatime, rainbow_teatime (Default)

Happy 2016, guys! ^^

As people would have noticed, I've resumed fanfic writing with a whole new Ohmiya series "From Then Till Now". This is the first time I'm writing a fanfic with so much angst in the beginning. (I had to cut short the latest chapter because I was angst-rambling well into 3k words LOL)

So, about some updates on my life outside a fanfic author...

1.NEW COMPUTER.

Unfortunately, Melvin the Macbook died last year from an unfortunate encounter with the rain. My brother and father saw this as a chance for me to get a new upgrade and persuaded me to use a PC instead of a Mac. Well.. I'm still trying to get used to using a Windows OS, but I guess I'll live. Meanwhile, I'm using a lean, mean, PC machine whom I christened the name.. "Prometheus". XD

That also meant that my external hard disk drive is unreadable, because it was already formatted to be read by a Mac OS. *SIGH* ALL MY ARASHI CONCERTS, VARIETY SHOWS AND DRAMA SERIES ARE THERE TOO. TT^TT
I'll have to get them somehow using a friend's computer. *sigh* XD

2. SIMS 4!

I've started playing Sims 4. I've successfully gotten married on my own, so now I'm trying something new.
I initially thought of adding my family members but decided to try out managing three Sims- me and two other friends as roommates. I wonder how things will go for the three of them. XD

3. Studies are.... oooookay?

During my holiday of two weeks in December I took a long break off studying and have found myself behind in my studies. But as the new year came, somehow I've found the motivation to start studying. Well, better to have that drive now than when May comes. ._.


It's going to be a bit busy for me as I try to juggle between gaming, writing, fangirling and studying. But I guess I'll somehow manage it. ^^

頑張ります!
