I'm taking a bit of time away right before the exams, but it's not troublesome at all. I took Tetsu to see the deer...he seemed to really enjoy that. We've also been playing games, though don't worry...I'm not teaching him to play shogi. Yet. Maybe in another year I'll start that. I hope Chouji doesn't mind that I spent some time talking to him, too. He had questions and I thought he deserved answers. It seemed to help him.

Ugh I have a headache. I went out to my usual bar, and Uchiha showed up...we were talking about a lot of nothing...and then Ino and Sakura found us. I guess Sasuke stood up Sakura for a date he didn't know he had. She bitched at him, and he let her get away with it. He didn't even stand up to her, like he's scared of women or something.

So I was crawling away, and Ino grabbed me, and made a scene about marriage. It seemed to amuse Uchiha. It ended after she slapped me. Evil wench.

Guess who gets to be in the pit during the next exams? That's right. Me.

Chouji is evil. He doesn't look it, but he really is. I went by to see him, Ino showed up, and he let her in. I ended up being dragged off to talk to her dad and my dad. They're really pushing us to get married. Ino's completely for it, of course...I'm not. The last thing I want or need is to be tied down to a nagging, whining, vain woman, no matter how strong she might be in mind and body.

The chuunin exams are on, to start at the end of February. I wonder if any genin will be recommended this year. It's rare that that happens, but...I have heard good things about some of them. The preparations will be starting the first week of February, but they will be nothing to keep me too busy. Thank god.

It's good to have two functioning arms. It's bad at the same time. Now Ino can attach herself on both sides, so there's not as much I can do to stop her. Not that I can stop her. It's troublesome, the way she's been lately, and also the way our fathers have been. I need to have a talk with both of them. I should talk to Asuma first, though. Maybe over a game of shogi.

A lot of things need deep thought, so I'm going to go do that. Think. It's not related to what I said just before this, though with the way I am writing this, it seems that way. Meh. I need to go see Chouji.

I asked Uchiha to watch someone for me. Not as a full time thing, but when possible...because while I have no specific reason, something is bothering me. I can't quite put my finger on it, and that bothers me a lot. I'm not used to being unable to identify what is causing my mind to be worried. I explained what it was that started this nagging feeling, and he felt that it should be discussed with Hokage-sama, when compared to something he experienced. We met with her this morning.

I just returned from a mission to the northern border of Konoha. It was a mission to investigate, and to return with the remains of those killed. There will be a memorial service, though I doubt most will come. They were chuunin who were not well known. It's sad to think that they'll be forgotten so easily by other shinobi.

I ran into Lee a few nights ago, he had a whore latched on to him. I don't know why he was in the red light district...he couldn't have known, not Lee. They actually dragged him into the whorehouse, pawing at him until I told them we were both broke. They were happy to get rid of us then, though it was troublesome to have to save Lee from their bright red painted clutches...or something like that. Meh.

Then we went to some bar. Lee ordered milk, but I don't know what went wrong...next thing I know, he's attacking some guy sitting near us. There was a lot of damage done before we got out of there, Lee seemed to think he was fighting me. As if I'd trouble myself to get tied up in a meaningless fight. If I hadn't had sake in my system, I probably would have thought to use the kagemane on him, but I didn't. He finally calmed down, but not after causing a scene.

If it wasn't such a bother, I'd strangle myself. I'm tired of looking at paper. Form after form after form. I'm going out to do some stargazing. Enough of this.

Uchiha Sasuke listens well to directions. I actually wouldn't mind working with him again...that was our second mission together, and though this time Ino and Chouji were with us, Sasuke fit right in. Maybe I should seek him out and help him feel more at home here. Nah...if he wants company he'll look for it, so there's no point in looking for him.

I heard that a team came back from a mission injured...it makes me feel lucky that we didn't have any problems. Will we next time? Hell, I don't know what to think about this situation. I've been through many scenarios in my mind, none make a lot of sense.

Hokage-sama is sending us on a mission. It's nothing spectacular, which is fine with me.

I've already given the details to Ino and Chouji. I'm team leader, of course. When we're out together, it's not as if I'm much of a leader. We work as a unit, fluid in motion and all that.

Actually, Ino usually takes charge.

However, this time, I will be leader in name and action. It's troublesome, but necessary. We are only going to retrieve someone from another country and guide him back to Konoha, and we will not be gone long. We leave tonight.

Edit:

What the hell. Hokage-sama sent a messenger to tell us that Uchiha Sasuke is to go with us. What's the deal? The three of us work well together, but we don't know how to work with him...and the mission isn't a difficult one.

How did I end up with a desk job when there's so much else I could be doing? My analytical mind is probably to blame for that.

Mom stopped by just as I was grabbing a soda, and she bitched at me. Not because I was getting a soda, but because I used my shadow to grab it and bring it to my desk. She mumbled something about me being lazy, and I ignored her. Really, having to listen to her talk about things like that is not how I want to spend my afternoon. In fact, being stuck inside isn't exactly my preference, yet here I am.

Meh.

I finally ran into Chouji. I guess he was holed up somewhere trying to regain his strength. Read that as, Stuffing his face with food. Apparently it's such a delicate process that he had to be alone. Yeah. Right. I think he's got a girlfriend he's hiding.

Oh for crying out loud. I have to go to Hokage-sama's office for more papers. I wonder if I can take the long route. Shit. Guess not. I hate when people read over my shoulder. Yeah, I'm talking about you.

Time to go.
