Not enough freedom

Grr.. I'm missing a lot on life lately. I don't know if reality hates me but I don't want to blame anyone here. Just a little upset and frustrated since I barely have time for myself and all I can do is rant here in my blog. I miss all the gimmicks I had with my friends and all. I hope I could rotate to another position since I had a feeling that I could never commit to the lifestyle I had right now. And right now, I'm all sleepy and just got home after rendering almost 6 hrs overtime. I need to rest already since my schedule later is much earlier.

After the hiatus...

Ohhh, I didn't see this coming. See what? Posting here again after 1½ years of not posting here at my place. Yes it's been a long while. See the last post here? Oct. 23, 2010 when I was still unemployed and still struggling to find one. And now that I've found one, I rarely had time for almost anything -- Yes even for myself. After a 3-month stay on my 3rd job, I resigned and returned to my 2nd job -- but as a regular staff and not as an agency personnel anymore.

It's been a year since I start working there and it's really satisfying but in exchange for that, I won't have time for myself -- I worked for more than 8 hours and sometimes, exerting effort to work and rendering overtime for 5-6 hours and what do I get? Money -- yes. I'm pretty much earning well right now but no time for social activities -- well even life outside the box is even not attainable.

Whenever I look myself in the mirror after taking a bath, it felt like I got a bit old compared to who I am in the last few years. It felt like I needed a break -- but sadly, I can't. It's not that I'm not happy with it -- just too tired and I already lack the time to spend with my friends, family etc. Due to work exigencies, I may not have all the freedom that I could get. Yes, I could file for a leave but not for too long -- no mandatory leave and I really long to have some relaxation and all.

Rotation of work as well is a bit difficult -- sometimes, I'm in the day shift and after some months, I will rotate to the night shift. A bit hard to adjust but that's how it is. At present, I got back to the night shift duty.

I may not be back for good but I'll try to post more on the following days. I don't know but I really want to blog again -- all the happenings and even do J-pop reviews again in the future but we'll see. For now, I'll end it here.

Asriel - unveil album review

Because of some certain circumstances, I am unable to do some things. x_x It's like an indirect way of saying, "update your blog", "make a review or something" of some sort. And so, after some thinking, I decided on making a review on Asriel's debut album unveil since I'm getting kinda addicted with their music lately and not to mention, it's my first time reviewing their works.

And so I shall start. I'm going to make this as short and precise as possible since I'm not in the mood to type novel types of reviews which are kinda long. unveil is the gothic lolita-esque duo Asriel's debut album. It was released on May 27, 2009 under 5pb. records. It was able to garner #48 in the Oricon weekly charts selling for two weeks. 2,727 first-week sales with a total of 3,301 copies sold.

My opinion on the upcoming I've Sound releases

Hmm it has come to the point that I've Sound is going to release three weeks in a row! And it really intrigues me who's going to get most of the sales and recognition... Is it:

- KOTOKO's Loop-the-Loop single? [10/20 out]
- MELL's MIRAGE album? [10/27 out]
- Mami Kawada's No buts! single? [11/03 out]
