Ο ΟΑΕΔ προτείνει: μπορείτε να γίνετε βουλευτής.
Αν έχετε όρεξη για τρέξιμο και λίγο ταλέντο στις δημόσιες σχέσεις θα βολευτείτε καλά.

Η Ειρήνη και η Μαριλένα προτείνουν:
Αν έχετε όρεξη για περιπέτεια, με μια καριέρα στις διαρρήξεις θα έχετε σίγουρη οικονομική αποκατάσταση. Σασπένς και αγωνία. Σκεφτείτε το. Ξεκινήστε από το ψιλικατζίδικο της γειτονιάς και στοχεύστε στο τελευταίο επίπεδο: μια τράπεζα.
Αν έχετε ικανότητες υποκριτικής μπορείτε να ξεκινήσετε την καριέρα σας στην μελλοντολογία. Γνώσεις δημοσίων σχέσεων και ψυχολογίας θα απογειώσουν την καριέρα σας.
Αν έχετε μεταφυσικές ανησυχίες σκεφτείτε τις δυνατότητες που ανοίγονται μπροστά σας αν ασχοληθείτε με την μαγεία. Αν επιπλέον έχετε σαδιστικές τάσεις η μαύρη μαγεία είναι η καλύτερη λύση για εσάς.

Guess what! I spent almost a week in Istanbul! I am near Thessaloniki now, on my way back to Athens, reporting.
Here's what  happened: my mother had arranged to go to Istanbul with her friends, but my grandmother suddenly fell ill and she had to stay in Athens. But she had already paid for the tour, and as she didn't want to lose the money, so she asked me to go at her place. As I only have just 2.000 words to write till the end of the month I accepted to go.
So, I had a great time. My mother's friends are nice ladies and fun to be with. Istanbul is... a poor city. Great for sightseeing though. We saw every Greek remain there, which is... hm... hidden boring churches, the headquarters of the Orthodox church and of course the *magnificent* Agia Sofia. I liked the palace of Top Kapi and the Dolma Bahche palace. Pretty palaces. From the displays in Top Kapi I remember the gorgeous swords and the cradle for the heirs of the Sultan. Small cute luxurious cradle for a golden baby! (I need pics...) We also got in the Blue Mosque. We the ladies had to cover our hands and legs, but not the hair, thankfully. I liked the carpet *laughs*.
What else... about the Turks I have to say they are a bit flattering... yes. Using the Greek flag next to the Turkish, hihi. About the food... oh so spicy! I *loved* their kebap and I tasted the most delicious rice ever. They also have every kind of delight and baclava... miam miam! And Turkey, at least at Istanbul, must be the only country except Greece where you can find frappe coffee. Cool!
We also watched a show with belly dancers and some tradittional dances. The first dancer...! She was a little older but still gorgeous, with a muscular body and a lot of experience. She was amazing! And all of the dancers emanated happiness. With a little wine it was pure euphoria! I drank so much wine that I was dizzy when I left. I didn't forget this dolma the waitor took away from me before I could eat it... I should eat faster... : ( Μου πήρε το ντολμαδάκι μουουουουουου!
And this is all for now... I will be back in Athens tomorrow and I will try to post some intersting pictures. And then keep writing of course!

Oh the irony! Robbie Williams is back in Take That! And I only heard of it today because my *brother* told me! Now that Jin leaves Robbie gets back! I think I want to listen to their new album as 5 again! Ah the memories!
But wow.... Take That and KAT-TUN... appart from the fact that they are two groups I went crazy for as a teenager and loved as a young woman... why are there these crazy timeline connections? 2006, KT debut, Take That get back together again. 2010, Robbie Williams gets back, Jin leaves. Now what? When Take That retire Jin will get back in KAT-TUN? LOL. And in 1991 when Take That debuted, KAT-TUN were like... 5 to 8 years olds! Let's see... given the 10 years intervals (Nigel Martin-Smith starts seeking Take That members in 1988, KAT-TUN join JE around 1998. Take That debut 1991, KAT-TUN get formed in 2001, Take That disband in 1996, KAT-TUN debut in 2006)... Will Jin get back in 10 years? I am sure he will still look handsome at 36. Take care of yourself baby! Or will KAT-TUN retire 10 years after Take That retire and Jin never gets back?
And back to Robbie Williams. Somebody called him in a blog "Mr. Mega-Ego". LOL. So, it's like anyone who wants to differ is a Mega-Ego? Hm... Nice try but I am not convinced.
Finally, 5.000 more words to write for my paper or less! Yey!

I am going through a greek retro music phase these days. I am listening to an album with old songs from artists that cooperated under the name "Neo Kyma" (new wave). Some of the songs reminded me of Jin so much and I just started to sing along. Today I recorded one of the songs and it's the first time I am rather satisfied with one of my recordings. I hope the song sounds fine and my solitary voice-training shows positive results. Yes, this is me singing!

I also translated the lyrics

I may love you but I don’t rule you

Lyrics: George Papastefanou

The night has covered the morning
In order not to see my loneliness
I bring you my feeling of desert
I lie beside you and kneel

I may love you but I don’t rule you
I spray the sky with tears

Where do you travel and you laugh
Tell me why you don’t love me
I embroider your hair with stars
But I can’t hold your heart

I may love you but I don’t rule you
And I don’t even hope to heal
I put my hand on the heart
And ask you for consolation

The desert that is drowning me  
Meets the sigh inside me

I may love you but I don’t rule you
And I roam without a cause

Beloved Jin,
do you think it's easy? Everything will be the same? Singing, dancing, acting. ACTING?
Nothing will be the same again. And you can't know the pain of your fans. So it's not good if it's not American? If Americans don't approve it's not good for you? I want to support you. I want to support the group that you quit. I wish I find the strength.
Take my tears as a token of my love and go away. I was glad I was able to see you with the others. Do what you want to do. We might meet again but Greece is too small for you.
Farewell,
Marilena.

So I try to take things calmly. I read what happens in kattunlove so I keep myself informed. I don't reply to comments with just personal feelings there. There some things I feel I need to say though.
Does the fact that I want Jin in KT makes me an egoist? Well, if Jin is an egoist wanting to leave, don't I have the right to be egoistic as well and express my feelings as well? Holding papers with a sign 'zutto 6 nin' at the concerts, how might that make KT feel given the fact that they are themselves sad about the possibility of a farewell (assuming they don't know any more than we do)? It's kinda nice to know that we share their sadness. We want to support all of them. We want to support 6 people even they become 5+1. I feel that if Jin leaves it will just be KAT-TUN without Jin. He can never be erased like that.
Now, there have been thoughts about who wants what. What KT want? What Jin wants? What Johnny thinks?. Up until now I believed what Jin said. I haven't felt betrayed because the announcement sounded indeed that whatever happens will be Johnny's decision. And Johnny does seem to know what some fans feel about Jin and most of all what KT feel. But I am kind of confused here. What do KT and Jin want? I can't claim I know. If it's true that KT are sad, even if that means just Koki and Tat-chan, I don't know what to believe.
If I could tell them one thing is 'I love you all guys. I will support you and hope for the best for all of you. If you think that things can't go on anymore the way they used to be, I will accept your decision. As long as it's what YOU want. I will swallow my sadness for you. The one thing I can't do is not forgive Jin.' It would be so easier if I could just send Jin to hell. But I can't. Even though I won't like his english songs as much as I liked his Japanese ones. I want to support him, but why do it if I don't like what he's doing any more? I really loved KAT-TUN's Jin, if that makes sense. That's why I feel it's a farewell. I only assume that KT's style won't change anymore.
*sigh* And this is what I think while I try to understand what other people think and my own feelings. And on top of that even J&A haven't made it final yet. What do they think? What do they want to know if it's true that nothing depends on Jin's concert success? Who will take the final decision? Are they preparing us for the worst or torturing us even more than Jin does?
And finally, yes. These things happen. I just hope that KT will escape the 'losing a member' inevitability. *mumbles*

Oh my Murphy, why? I am at Kalamata right now and I read this morning about the news. 
So it's official that Jin's future in KAT-TUN is *at best* uncertain.
I can't even cry. I started shaking a bit when I read it and my mind went blank. Now... well, we bought a bottle of Malibu and rented Alice in Wonderland to watch with a friend. And so the day will go on. Life with go on. Just Jin will be alone and KT without him.
I think I will try to be as far away from the fandom as possible now. I don't want the drama. I don't want people celebrating either. I will just mourn on my own...

Aaah... All that drama in the fandom again... Well, let's write a little about it here... Because there are so many things in my mind... I calmed down but I am still sad.
Well, there are reports according to nono96 (and 2 links) that talk about two fans that first insulted Kame during a concert and then pointed a laser into his eyes. They are blaming Kame for Jin leaving the group. Argh!
Jin didn't leave the group. I insist that he couldn't possibly deny the American's proposition about the concerts and I believe this was not planned. I want to believe what they say. Of course, this doesn't mean that he can leave and go whenever he wants from the group's activities and this is the only mistake I can blame him with. I feel hurt about that behavior as well. But well.. beyond that this is Jin and I love him even with his faults. Now, it would be stupid for him to leave KAT-TUN for good, beacuse he can't have the career he wants in the US, there is no point for him going solo in Japan, because he can do solo projects freely there anyway, and apparently fans wil not calm down if he leaves. It's really schizophrenic, but maybe what Nono pointed out is true: they'll be unhappy if he is in KT and unhappy if he leaves. And what exactly do you love about KAT-TUN bitches? Not Kame obviously. Well, guess what. He's not leaving either.
There are two things that make me scared though. The fans want to plot something "big" in the last Tokyo Dome concert? Thankfully there is security there. And I also remember how some Korean fans made one of their stars to leave Korea because of some things he had writen years ago in a blog. PLEASE anyone, don't make Jin leave. It's not *entirely* his fault. Maybe he should so something. He must set things clear *again* and of course not ever leave again. Of course there will be fans who will dislike him as there will be fans who dislike Kame. I know that both Jin and KAT-TUN look happy now, but for the sake of their fans who love them as 6? When you love a group that much it's extremely sad to witness this separation. I suppose if the worse happens I will cry and cry and then I'll get over it. But the sweet feeling of the 6 member group will be gone. And hell, I loved them together, for everything that they've done together. Please, don't tear appart one of your most loving fans, guys.
Anyway, I will end with my most conforting thought. Dramas happen every now and then in the fandom. Fans insulted Kame even when Jin was there. And he defended him. I suppose things will calm down again. Yes, some girls need a kick in the ass, but the group won't fall appart because of them.
