I know it's a late post.
While our Riida has turned 36, my LJ here has also turned 6!!! YAY!!! 🎉🎊🎇🎆😁
I honestly didn't remember why I picked November 25th as the date to make this LJ account... yeah, only a day earlier from the birthday of the person who baited me as an Arashian. Maybe it was just a sheer luck or merely coincidence. Nevertheless, I'm glad.
I met many people since I'm into Arashi, a lot of them online, and some more I even met in real life. I couldn't be more grateful to be able to know people from the other side of the world just because we have the common interest, which is Arashi. Courtesy of our fishing leader, Ohno Satoshi, of course.
To all the people I met through the subbing team (I'm glad to be part of you, girls... even what I've done is practically nothing compared to the translators, timers, and typesetters), the people I met through twitter (which I made as a communication means for the subbing team, initially), the people I met through Line group (extended from both twitter/LJ connection), the people I met from the buyer-seller relationship, and the people I met when I went to see the boys (and the trip, naturally), I'm so truly very glad I've met you all.
Oh, and of course the people I met through tumblr!!! I'm not as active as way back then but I still visit it from time to time.
I've never thought that this journal will reach this age, really. Or more like I've never thought that I will be in this Arashian realm this long. Hence explained the username I chose for this LJ. I made this LJ account on a whim, never meant it as something I would use a lot. The name "justfever" relates to what I feel back then. I thought when I like Arashi it would be a temporary thing and I quite sure it was just a short period, so maybe it was just a fever I guess. A fever that will be gone sooner or later. But then... look at me now. I have never imagined that I will like them so much to even made to their concert twice, moreover went on journeys to a faraway country. I made big steps here and there, something I treasured and cherished. Before I know it, this fever has been running this long.
So, "meeting" Arashi gave a lot of "firsts" for me. Creating this journal is only one of them. On the other hand, Arashi gave me a lot more too: support, inspiration, motivation, solace, comfort, determination, hope, and gratitude for everything I got in every day life. For me, Arashi is like a friend that walk together side by side with me, sometimes offering hand for support when I wasn't able to stand or walk.
I'm glad I know Arashi. As simple as that.
