Aloha! (for now?)

Post by jholic » Oct 14th, '05, 12:30

hey everyone,

just letting you guys know that i'll be taking a leave of absence for a few months (or permanently?? :cry: ). as i mentioned in the JEM thread, i have always held that your personal life should come first, and i'm practicing what i preach.

i've been offered a great career opportunity, but the job is based on the east coast (of the US). it's pretty sad to leave hawaii, but i know i'll be back. training starts next week, so i'm leaving tomorrow. after training (about two months), i'll be living in the north virginia or maryland area. to me, that's a foreign country! :P

in any case, i'll be quite busy, so won't have too much time to come around on this board. i'm hoping to get everything settled and find time in between the busy job to visit again. but i can't be too sure, so just in case, i just wanted to extend a warm 'mahalo' (thank you) to everyone here!

keep d-addicts the best forum on the planet!! 8)

aloha!

EDIT:
ps. i won't be logging in too often (if at all). if anyone needs to get a hold of me, they can try e-mailing me at: j h o l i c -at- j a p a n . c o m
i don't check it too often, but i'll eventually get to it! :lol

jholic,

Man, that is a really big move, good luck to you and remember to bring some warm clothes, I don't think shorts and a Hawaiian shirt will work to well in Maryland in the winter. ':lol' Anyway I hope you will have someone to send you some of your favorite Hawaiian foods because it is not like your going to have an easy time finding them on the mainland. Again good luck and thanks for all your work in the drama community.

jholic,
Good luck with your new job. At least you didn't have the training during the hot and humid summer here on the east coast. This particularly summer was killer. I'm trying to find a job in the West Coast.
Any way thanks for all your effort with D-Addicts.

you, too jholic-sama???

but yes..............congrats~! and please don't ever be a stranger to D-A.

you were a great mod and a great friend forever keeping me entertained with your witty sense of humor. Take care and drop by whenever you can. plus, there'll always be a lot of great Jdramas ready for you whenever you need to get away for a bit. :)

I won't say D-A will miss you....that'll just be saying that you'll be gone. and i know you'll be back...so....

matte-ne~ see you later.

and most importantly best wishes wherever you are. at least you'll be closer to where i am now~ :lol

and who knows....i might even bump into you in Maryland since I'm there every summer.

i'm only a PM away whenever you need a friend~ :D

that's why I haven't seen you around! glad you're back! you know we won't have to worry about jholic, once a d-addict, always a d-addict. I bet the first thing that he does when he gets to the east coast is to schedule for internet hookup! a man with so much to say cannot be quieted so easily. :mrgreen:

aloha, everyone!

just popping in to wish everyone 'happy holidays'!

thanks for everyone's well-wishes in this thread. i really appreciate it. these past few months have gone by pretty quickly. training kept me quite busy, but i tried to pop in a few times just to see what was new. unfortunately, it just got too busy for me to even lurk.

i did get a chance to visit many places - more states than my entire lifetime! traveled around the virginia, maryland and DC areas for sightseeing. during thanksgiving, i visited NYC and ate at a friend-of-a-friends' house in new jersey. i met a lot of people (mostly asian) and couldn't help but wonder if any of them were d-addict members. :lol

it's going to take me a while to read through what's happened in the last few months and i won't even be able to start catching up to my torrents until next month. :cry: i feel just like a wet-behind-the-ears n00b!! ha!

congrats to Jannah, LGG and mizune for making the mod team. much thanks to them (and the original mods & Ruro) for keeping this site going.

for those of you wondering, i was only back in hawaii for a very short time, then returned to the frozen tundra that people call the 'east coast'. lucky me. :crazy: i will be happy to return when things get back to "normal" for me.

happy holidays to all!

-j

ps. there were some people that left me private msgs. it's better to e-mail me at the address i provided in the first post of this thread. right now, it's easier for me to check that e-mail than to sign in. i know if i sign in, i'll tend to get distracted. :lol

I have been all over the world including many of the places from which you are all blasting the east coast...I enjoyed visiting but have always returned home to what i feel is the best place in the world...the east coast of the us...I lived in cali and had to leave after a year...loved hawaii...loved arizona...loved england france and other places in europe...loved australia and japan...love island hopping in the carribean...loved peru and brazil....would not change where i live for any of em....jholic give it time and hopefully you will see the best qualities of the mid-atlantic region (of course i dont think that you or anyone else will ever not feel that your home base wherever it may be is not better than the next and we are all right so lets stop the blasting).
Oh yeah, glad to have you back :D

I agree with kaname too (esp since I'm from MD ^_^;;; )
The best thing about museums (and zoo) in DC: they're almost all free to the public. Growing up in the area, it never occurred to me that it was the norm for museums charge an admission fee. So spoiled....

As for the weather... I love the weather back east... Heck, I love weather!! :roll
There are actually quite a few beautiful places within the MD/VA/DC area, but the thing is that most of the time ppl don't know they exist. For instance Rock Creek and Great Falls National Park actually wind into the heart of DC, but its camoflauged very well. When the weather improves, I'd suggest make your way down to the bay for some nice picturesque scenes. And come Autumn, you don't need to go very far to see some spectacular views of the leaves.

And you'll probably hate me for saying this, but besides snow, every few years or so we get a severe ice storm. When that happens, it's impossible to get around, but everything literally crystallizes and becomes absolutely beautiful. Tree branches are coated with a thin layer of ice so that they glisten and sparkle... :wub:
The muffled sounds of everything blanketed in snow... crunchy sounds of boots on ice...
Neighbors helping each other dig out cars and driveways....
:cry:

Great, now I'm feeling homesick....

well, it's still not going to make me hope for a snowstorm, but we had one a few weeks ago, and i have to admit AFTERWARDS everything was quite beautiful in white. you don't get to see that in hawaii.

Guy you litterally had me ROFL on that one.. Granted I'm not in to museums and art or what not, so leaving Hawaii for the blackhole called the East Coast still has me in shock.
