The L'Arc 30-Day Challenge -- Day 22
Well, I'm finally home after a long semester away. And it's a new home, too, as my family moved into a new house about a month ago  -- like we do every year, because we've never stayed at one house for very long.
I'm not too excited about sharing a room again since I've had so much freedom having my own dorm room, but I think having a swimming pool and a lovely flower garden makes up for that fact :3

Anyways, I took some pictures of my dorm room before I spent the entire night (and therefore didn't sleep a wink) packing everything up.

Sorry for the bad quality -- the only thing I can take pictures of things with is my DSi, so they don't look very good.

I'm proud to say that my room had always looked this clean. I was obsessed with cleanliness, especially since I was the only person occupying this room. I took a lot of pride in my cleaning skills :3

The fort is where I slept. Because the sun always shone through the blinds during the day--even when closed--and nobody turned off the hallway lights at night, it made it impossible for me to sleep, so I just used my blankets to keep any light from hitting my face when I'm laying there (I need complete darkness in order to fall asleep).
The bed next to the tent was never used except for when I wanted to play guitar :3

Alright, challenge time!

Day 21 - Your favorite song from Ray
 I absolutely adore Kasou, Sell My Soul, Honey, Ibara no Namida, Snow Drop, and Shinshoku ~lose control~  to pieces and I have a lot of emotional attachment to these songs (and to the entire album, for that matter, if ya haven't noticed already ;D), but I have to choose between them. Sigh...I really don't wanna choose between them...I can't choose between them. But I know I gotta try! If I managed to answer this question for Ark, then I can do it for Ray as well, right?

Okay, so since Ibara no Namida and Snow Drop have already been used as answers to previous questions I can take them out and focus on the songs that are left.

I think...I'm gonna go with Shinshoku on this one. Because I love the odd meters in the song and the overall atmosphere that the song presents (what would you call that atmosphere? Dark? Creepy?). It's really fun to listen to. I probably chose this song because I had just watched them perform it live on their 20th L'Anni concert DVD the other day and I'm continually amazed by the performance.  I think I'm kinda in a Shinshoku-ish mood right now, so I guess that could be another reason for my choice.

...Hmmm, I feel like I've been picking my answers rather impulsively lately... 

Day 22 - Your favorite song from Real
Hmmm, favorite song from Real......well, it'd have to be between The Nepenthes, Love Flies, A Silent Letter, and Stay Away, for sure. They're all very good songs, although I admit to falling in love with most of them from hearing them be performed in later live performances instead of the album itself -- Actually, I think that goes for a lot of the songs I like. I Didn't like them as much until I experienced the live versions. But whatever, it doesn't matter too much :P

So! I think that I'm going to go with the song A Silent Letter as my favorite. Because it left a very big impression on me when they performed it live, when there are bright lights shining into the tiny mirror ball hyde's holding and then it floats away in the middle of the song. But I actually liked hearing this song from the album first X3

Still to come:

Day 23 - Your favorite song from Smile 
Day 24 - Your favorite song from Awake 
Day 25 - Your favorite song from Kiss 
Day 26 - Your favorite B-side 
Day 27 - Your favorite P’Unk~en~Ciel’s song 
Day 28 - Some goods you own 
Day 29 - A cover by yourself 
Day 30 - Your “all time” favorite song

Your dorm looks very nice, and I think it's great you had it all to yourself too :) And yay, you're finally back home! Wow, you really move once a year? That's pretty cool~ And congrats on your new pool, now you can swim all the time :D

Haha, same for me, I liked some songs a lot more after hearing them live. I find a silent letter to be hauntingly beautiful~

Teeheehee, why thank you! <3 Yup, and it's just so great to be home. I...kinda don't wanna leave, 'cuz I like the house so much X)Yeah, we never like to stay in one place for long--either because we hate the neighbors or the landlord sucks or we wanna live in a different town. Heehee, thanks! I've been in the pool everyday since I've been home! ^-^

I wonder if that goes for a lot of people then? Afterall, they are a band whose songs are meant to be experienced live.
Yaaay, I think so too! It's so entrancing~

You're welcome~! I've never really left home, but I can imagine it's the place where almost all of us feel the most comfortable. I'm glad you like it so much :) Oh, really? Well, whatever the reason, it sounds pretty exciting to experience so many different places all the time~ That's great :D Theyr were remodeling our apartment pool (and it's still kinda cold at night here) so I haven't been in it yet, but soon~

Hmm, maybe. That was also the song that had a poem leading up to it in Real live, right? I loved that poem as well, and have it written in my notebook ^^

^-^ Oh, really? Yeah, that seems to be completely true. But I think it's because the house is so beautiful and functional that I wanna stay here for more than a year. Thank you~
Oh yeah, it is pretty exciting. We've been home-hopping for as long as I can remember, so I can say that I've lived in a whole lot of different places. It is pretty great :D
Oh, well then I hope they finish up soon and that it's not as cold . It's already extremely hot here >.<

I...think so. Can't remember well right now because I'm so sleepy... :P I think I remember the poem a little, though I think I'm gonna hafta go and re-watch it now ^^;

Mm hmm. And oh, I see :) I hope you get to stay a bit longer then, and you're welcome~ Have you only lived in Florida or have you moved to different states as well? It seems like they'll be done in the next few days, thanks ^^ Really? It gets kinda hot somedays, but it always cools off by the evening. I'll probably have to wait until June...

Oh, that's ok. Have fun re-watching it then :) Though I'll type out the poem since I have it handy atm~

Dear my love,

How are you? I have been thinking about you. I write this letter knowing it will probably never reach you. Many days, as cold as winter nights, have passed since that time. My weakness and the way in which I hurt you disappear into the darkness. I know we cannot turn back the clock and return. I believe that not meeting you signifies my last love. I will never forget the tenderness you showed me. You live on in each new day. Your memory brightens the sky. Don't hate me. Don't become sad because of me. That is all I ask. I opened the window today and saw a myriad of flowers blooming. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you. To say goodbye is like being a small lost child again. Goodbye. Goodbye. Goodbye. Goodbye.

Cool! And thank you! ^-^
Oh no, I was born up north. I lived in Minnesota for over a decade and then in Wisconsin for a bit before I moved here to Florida. That's why I really miss the cold and the snow and the seasons (since FL HAS no seasons). But I adjust well to changes in climate, thankfully. Oh, well then that's great! Oh, I see then...

Thanks, I will! ^^

Ah, I'd forgotten how beautiful the poem was T-T thanks for sharing~

You're welcome ^^
Wow, that's really cool! I've moved a fair amount, but never out of California or anything. I've never really known very cold weather or snow, but I'd love to live in a place where it snows~ That's good :) Eh, I don't know what they're doing, they still have a "Closed for maintainance" sign up :\

I haven't gotten a chance to watch any lives yet, but I will for sure watch like 3 when I get the chance XD

You're very welcome~ I love it too ♥

Oh,really? Wait, so have you ever been in snow before? :O
Well, they better fix it soon!>.<...That ain't fair...

Oh yes, watch them as soon as you can~ X)

^-^ Imma hang it upon mah wall~

I was when I was like 2; I went up to the mountains with family, but I don't remember any of it XD It's still closed, it's so annoying ><

I finally did, I watched the 15th L'Anni 2 days ago :D It actually felt a bit strange seeing a dvd again for the first time after seeing the live.

Good idea, I should do that too~
