Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

Everything’s coming together, I guess. My piece is pretty much ready to go, Liz is almost ready to go as well, Yuki, Suzuka, and Haruna are pretty much ready, they have their costumes… I guess all we have to do is keep practicing and wait for the concert.  Ours is in a couple of weeks, Liz’s is just a little bit later.

Suzuka and Haruna are having a great time but I can tell they’re about ready to go home.  They will right after the concert.  Not “go from the concert hall to the airport”, but…  pretty close to that.

I asked if there’s anything we can do to make their stay better, and they said no, they’ve got plenty to do, lots of good food, warm futons, *ahem* interesting weather, and we take them to do fun stuff every now and then.  But Haruna does seem a little sad.  I mean, we talked about her loneliness, but there seems to be something else there under the surface too.  I wonder what.

Suzuka is just having fun, there’s nothing under the surface there.  But Haruna…  I just get a feeling.

Joe and Anathema headed off to the beach for some fun and frolic and, well, fun and frolic.  They’re going to be on honeymoon for a bit longer.  Joe had a bunch of leave saved up.  I don’t know how it works in the military but they seem to like it when people get married – it gives them something to fight for I guess.

And Crystal’s band, well, they’re still practicing.  They’re a lot better together than we ever were, and they’re really inspiring Crystal to get way better.  Girl’s starting to shred a bit now.  She’s asking me for theory lessons, but it’s not like I’m particularly great at that myself.  I’ll try, though.

I have to pick my courses soon at Meiji and send them some money.  Okay, a lot of money.  Not ivy league a lot of money but it’s not cheap.  This whole thing will make a large dent in my trust by the time I’m done.  But I guess it’s worth it.

I hope it’s worth it.

I haven’t decided my major yet.  they don’t have music classes as far as I know, so I have to pick something a little more boring.  Hopefully I can find a way to keep taking lessons anyway.  Maybe my minor celebrity as train onee-chan will get me a few concerts here and there.  I should talk to Dave and see what he recommends.  He’s good at stuff like that.  Maybe I’ll do something in technology.  I’m not great at it, but I do keep this site up, so that’s something.

I gotta choose soon though.

My first major adult decision.


Being a kid was fun while it lasted.

Technology is interesting – I’m not as interested in it as my tech friend or even Dave, but it’s interesting enough.  It’s basically there to help people do stuff that it’s difficult to do.  Like, you know, alarm clocks.  How did we keep accurate (I know there were sundials, I said accurate) time before that?

Well, we’ll see.

Truthfully… I’m a little scared.  Ever since I was found, Dave and Sabby have always been there for me.  But that’s coming to an end too.  I know they’ll still always be there for me, but… they won’t, too.

I’ll be an adult in every sense of the word.

It’s really, really scary.

Love you all!!! ❤️
