happy birthday, Shoon!

This is the longest we've been without news of you. How are you doing? And how's Reon? I wouldn't be surprised if he were a lot taller than you now. And how's university? Only a few months to graduate now, right? I wonder what will happen then. Whether you'll try to go back to the entertainment business again, or whether you'll try to find a job related to your university degree. You said you were closing the blog and website "for the time being" to focus on your studies, but so many things can change in about eight months... Look at Johnny's. Now there's a Johnny's Jr. site -with videos too!- and the Hyakushiki site now has a picture of Inocchi and the boys, and Johnny's is opening up to the foreign fans. Who would have said? All those things came too late for you and us, your fans, didn't they? Pity.

Back to you, much though I want to hear from you again, I would understand it if you decided to remain an anonymous citizen from now on, like most of us. Sometimes we settle for something we hadn't planned on because our expectations seem too hard to meet, or maybe we realize how much we enjoy something we never had the time for before, or that we are interested in exploring other possibilities. You're just 22 after all! My 22nd year of life was one of the best so far. I met many nice people, learned a lot of new things, had loads of fun, felt more alive than ever... Whatever you do, I hope it will be the same for you.

As the header says, not a day goes by that I don't think of you. You popped one day into my life, unexpectedly, slided silently into my heart... and you will always have a place there, a sunny, bright one. I wonder if you'll be curious enough to go online to see if we remembered your birthday and I hope that, when you see we haven't forgotten you, that beautiful smile of yours will touch your lips. Happy birthday, dear Shoon, be well.


追伸: 翔央くんがジャニーズ事務所を辞めたから、ファンレターをJFCに送れませんでした。なので、4月に岡本圭人くんにレター送りました。レターをあなたに手渡するように依頼しました。でも、彼はそのレターが届いたことは知りません。

happy hatachi, Hikaru!!

Why is it that I ALWAYS forget the exact date of Hikaru's birthday? =_= Seriously, for some stupid reason my brain is convinced it's December 13th and not December 2nd and then every year it jumps on me and I have to hurry and conjure up a birthday post and header hastily. ^^;;; Though this time the header doesn't look too bad if I may say so. :p

It's been months since I last made a post here. Fandom-life feels strange now I'm pretty much out of the fandom. I hear people mentioning the new Johnny's calendars and it means nothing to me anymore. No excitement, no anticipation, no nothing. No sadness anymore either, but I wonder if it will ever stop feeling so weird. I suppose it's because I still have this fragile thread connecting me to it all.

I will always have warm memories of the years I was an active part of the JE fandom, as a fan and a blogger who updated regularly. I want to honour those memories, and I'm determined to squeeze Ya-Ya-yah and Shoon in between work and life, the two things that keep me so busy that I can't seem to find time for anything. *shakes fist*

And that includes not forgetting the birthdays of the Fantastic Four ;) ...even though I should be working right now... ahem XD;;; Hikaru is 20 already, lo and behold! I wish I had the time and inspiration to type a long, deep post, but as it is I'll just be content to say: Happy birthday, Hika, I keep you in my thoughts, carry you in my heart and wish you all the very best, ALWAYS.
