So it’s the 29th of November year 2015. The day I am finally flying to the Land of the Rising Sun, temples, castles, takoyakis, and animes.
Am I excited? Overly, I would say. I am so much excited that all the excitement had died down leaving me in a state of patient waiting, and silent anticipation. No giddy fan-girl mode with squeals. Just an adult (though I really looked like a student still), with trained patience and composed attitude. Perhaps, my inner self has locked in a closed room the overly excited part of me, because, I’ll be honest, when I get too excited sometimes on the spot, things tend to be…well, damn bad. So as precautionary measures, they’ve locked Excitement somewhere in my inner world! She would be pitiful but it’s for her own good. Yes, I did watch Inside Out, it’s cute and emotional and educational, alright.
Anyway, back to my trip…winter-suited clothes, basic toiletries, lodging address and contact details, camera, power bank and spare batteries, necessary documents, Japanese Yen, green and black nails, and short hair: ALL CHECKED. I painted my nails just last night and it turned out really nicely. I should have discovered top coat a long time ago. It’s the first time I did my nails in two solid colors though, apple green and black, given a matte finish. Few quarters after I did it though, I already chipped it, like always. Oh well, I love how it turned out anyway. I decided to be pastel-punk for my trip to Japan, but it will only be my nails.
Though I did bring a lot of clothes, I will still do a lot of shopping there as well. First in the list would be a pair of black boots, which of course, will also be used there. I failed to find nice black boots in affordable pricing in Singapore so might as well just purchase it there. And I want a coat too, in light color, since my winter jacket is already in dark blue color. And I’m getting myself cardigans and lots of other stuff too. Make p as well! When I checked in my luggage minutes earlier (yes, I’m already in the airport), it was only about 15-something kg and that leaves me 5kg allowance for my shopping and souvenirs. I still have my 7+3kg hand carry so I guess I should be safe.
My concern right now is if I happen to be in the same flight with our guests who are going back to Japan today, and they remember me. That’s so gonna be awkward because I don’t remember all our guests, and I already make an effort to remember the guests I checked in and those who I have assisted in the counter. It’s a matter of putting a name and room number to the face.
By the way, my original plan of staying in Japan for ten days changed to eleven days, because of flight conflicts. On my way back to Singapore on 8th, supposedly, I am transiting in Kaohshiung in taiwan, and I need Visa for Taiwan which I did not get. I did not really bothered about it because I never planned on leaving the airport anyway but I want to be on the safe side and prevent hassles from getting back to Singapore. For all I knew, I might be deported back to Philippines instead! So I changed my flight to 9th, since that”s the only earliest flight available that’s not going through a visa-required country for my passport. Yep, more money out but more hours to spend in Japan so I guess all’s good.
I’m happy to be going to Japan and this is yet another unplanned plan so I will just go there and decided what to do on which day. I at least have a plan for a day, just putting the plans on actual dates.
So, I think I should head to my boarding gate if I don’t want to be late for boarding. Well, I’ll be out of Singapore, and probably won’t be posting anything else on WP for the next eleven days and a few more days until my next off after my leave.

Find me, because I’m lost in this reality. Guide me, and bring me to where my dreams have been hidden. Hold me, because you and your touch alone could soothe me of the pain. You are my only guarantee that I am actually alive and living. You are my proof that I am not merely existing.
Levi works in an accounting firm and has been in the same company ever since he finished his studies. He’s not one for taking risks, and given the fact that the economy is not doing great, and finding job is difficult, he opted to stay and be rooted to where he was. He finds some kind of comfort living his everyday in a routine, interacting with people he knew, not changing anything. He denies it, but sometimes, he finds himself asking, Am I really living?
Then one day, he decided to break his routine and just try something different. It was a difficult feat for him, feeling something is terribly off every single second. And from then on everything changed. As much as everything would change when you suddenly wake up one Saturday morning in an unknown place, beside an unknown person.
Eren, fresh graduate, currently unemployed but he is not bothered about the fact. He decided to take it easy after finishing the stressful last year of his undergraduate degree for architecture. Through his family’s connections, he could land any job in whatever company he wanted. His family is filthy rich, he has caring and understanding parents, a sister who dotes on him although it’s too much sometimes, a best friend he could always rely on, and to top it off, excellent physical appearance that could rival the Greek gods. He gets what he wants the way that he wants, with no effort needed. He has a good life, and he had it easy. So he is living his life the way he wanted.
That was until he met Levi, a drunk Levi. Eren was fascinated by him, so much that the moment he landed his eyes on the man, his gaze has never left him. He has one problem though. His I-get-what-I-want attitude does not apply to Levi.
All his life, everything that he wanted has always been at the tip of his fingers, but apparently Levi was the only exception. And it was frustrating him. He wanted the man, but first he wanted to be recognized by Levi not as a spoiled, rich brat who can’t do anything without his family’s influence. And so, Eren had decided to end his easy going life, work by himself for himself, just so Levi will see him as an equal.
But is Levi’s acknowledgment all he is after? Or is he aiming for something more…something better?
NOTES: I have read several fan-fiction about this ship, but was still sane enough to pick what I read. I like the modern setting of the alternate universe, in whatever plot it might be, reincarnation, mafia, music, school, name it. And for some reason, I try not to read fictions that was very much related to the original story, because I still love AoT/SnK very much. I haven’t even watched to the second live action film due to that fact. Because, I’ll be honest, the original story was still far better.
Anyways, so yeah, I have come up with my own. I know how I wanted it to end, but the real struggle will be how it will come about. I will try to make this short, unlike when I tried to make a long story with Danica and Jacob, which I did not really expect to have so many chapters in it. And yes, my writing, vocabulary and imagination will still be in the same crappy style. So if you wanted to look forward to this story, let me kill that excitement for you now. Despite reading lots lbgt stories, this is my first time actually writing one. And like Levi, I am not good with expressing myself in words.
By the way, ever heard of Spongecola’s (Philippine boy band/OPM) Myself in you? The first sentence was exactly from the song. Check it out maybe? Because that song is how this story formed in my head.
