Here to make my bi-annual, half year... I'm posting XD I always read this thing, but posting on it lately proves I am a lazy soul. Well, that and Facebook is a much better place to keep up with me.
Let's see, what's new in life. Aside from work taking up a lot of time... I mean I feel like all I do is work, but it's paying off, even if I am a social outcast because of it. Once the holiday season is over, I'm taking some more time off for myself. So I know it sucks and I miss doing as much as I used to, but I think I've finally found a balance. YAY! That only took... 4 months?
I have decided that I won't be going to AB next year. In April I will be going to Disney/Universal and I won't have money for a con as well. It's my 25th Birthday present to myself :D
In other news, I just turned 25. I was freaked out for about an hour when I realized, I'm doing rather well for my age. Girlfriend, my own apartment, kick ass roomie, high up in employement (even if my job has me there all the time XD). But I think I need a nutsy job. Sitting behind a desk all day would drive me completely mental. I have plans for next year which include a NYC trip, Florida and a Boston weekend. 25 isn't all that bad. I don't feel any older or more responsible. Guess I'll just have to wait for the next milestone to feel that.
In cosplay news: Triwizard Harry is a GO. I'm gonna kick my ass to get it finished before the trip in April, as well as finish Rob's Sirius costume. Just need to sew the coat and put some buttons on it :)
I also have Hans Solo to make and a costume for AAC to host in. Something from 70's anime. Thoughts?
I have also convinced Sarah to start a Glitz Dress Shop for all those CRAZY ASS PAGEANT MOMS. Some of those dresses go for like 900 bucks on Ebay. That's my rent XD If we even made a 1/4 of that on one of ours it would help in the savings in the long run. TBC on this plan, but I definately want it to happen.
Not much else. Still obsessed with Doctor Who, Iron Man and Harry Potter. Speaking of which:
The Doctor/Marilyn Monroe is my new OTP :)
All righty, back to Iron Man 2.
I just finished rewatching Revenge of the Sith, and decided to take a break in my Star Wars marathon to have a bit of a rant.
You know what really grinds my gears? Luke Skywalker was just as screwed as his father in life. (Which I guess is a symbolism in a way, showing how much alike he and his father really are. Going a bit far though Lucas.) HOWEVER THAT'S NOT THE POINT.
Luke is the oldest. We learn that when they're born, which as Dan pointed out, SPOILER! if no one has watched the movies before when we get to Empire, we find out Darth Vadar is his father. DUN DUN DUN because Padme blurts out their names as she spits them out? C-section? WHO the hell knows what's happening in that dome. Okay back to why Luke gets a massive dump taken on him. WITH THIS AND THAT :D
Leia: Adopted because this guy and his wife want a DAUGHTER to spoil and love and make a princess.
Luke: Sent to a moisture farm to live with his poor Aunt and Uncle.
Leia: Probably doesn't have to worry about anything and is in a nice clean palace.
Luke: Shoots dust rats and lives in a HOLE IN THE GROUND.
Leia: Has ladies in waiting.
Luke: Has a creeper Jedi stalking him from the mountains.
Leia: Gets caught by her father and put in a cell.
Luke: Gets assulted by Sand People and knocked out.
Leia: Planet gets blown up
Luke: Aunt and Uncle get burned alive.
(Okay, so they're kinda even there...)
Leia: Gets to have a boyfriend.
Luke: Can not know love.
Luke: Also kissed his sister. Twice. Gross.
Leia: Pretends she's doing something important and princessy/democratic
Luke: Gets his ass handed to him in Jedi training by Master Yoda.
Leia: CLEARLY GETTING IT ON WITH HANS.
Luke: Gets his hand cut off by Daddy.
Leia: Has her man candy frozen in carbonite.
Luke: Still, can't love anyone.
Leia: Gets to party with Ewoks.
Luke: Long and the short, is responsible for his father dying.
Leia: Gets snugglely with Hans.
Luke: Sees dead people.
I'm sure there's a million more of these, but basically I feel bad for Luke, the first three movies made me think the Jedi weren't as great as everyone though and I shall be rooting for the Dark Side forever. Silly catholic priest in disguise. That's a whole 'nother rant for another time :) Or on aim if anyone is interested. LOL
NPH on Glee next week. Singing 'Dream On'. Directed by Joss Whedon.
Wonder if that means someone is gonna die for no good reason...
Matt Smith? You can stay sir :)
While going through my movie collection, I've found that several of my things are missing. I feel like I've rebought a few movies that I already owned and I can't keep doing that XD Especially if I'm trying to save money. So I have a request.
If anyone has borrowed something from me, could I possible have it back XD Not instantly, since we all have lives and stuff. But maybe even a comment so I know who has what? That would be awesome.
In other news, buying my fabric for my AB costume tomorrow. Just need to get the wig and I'm good to go. Only one new costume for AB. Have a few making a reapperance. Also have to make an appointment to get my hair colored.
MY ORDER THAT SHIPPED YESTERDAY CAME IN THE MAIL TODAY O_o
I KNOW OFFICALLY OWN ALL OF DOCTOR WHO. GOING TO WATCH ALL THE AWESOME SPECIALS NOW :D!!!!!!
I always forget how much I love Queer as Folk. And everytime I watch season one, I goo all over the place for Brian and Justin :3 I still need to own season three someday, so I can actually watch it and I'm never owning season five XD
I also forget that RTD wrote the British Original of QaF. Might explain my love for Torchwood a little bit more :)
Just thought I would share~
Back to dying my hair
*clears off cobwebs*
It's not like I don't come here everyday and read peoples posts. Just making one for myself, would have been pointless since not much happened in the last few months. Well; that's not entirely true. Once again, list of things that happened/coming up.
Turning 24: I had a blast. I saw Elise who I haven't hung out with in like a YEAR <---worst best friend ever. Sarah J joined us on the trip to Boston where we got to see the Harry Potter Exhibit. It ROCKED. Omg! The costumes were beautiful, the props were so cool. You got to play Quidditch! The gift shop, rocked! I hope I get to go again before it's out of the MoS so my Mom, Missy and Gram can go too. Maybe next weekend...
Anywho, met up with Haldan, Maddy and Ryan at the Hard Rock Cafe which was a nightmare XD But when you're with the right group of people, anything is made into a good time. In short...it took us three hours to finally get fed and get out of there, our drinks took an hour to come to the table, some of our food, wasn't cooked right, waitress started to sing Happy Birthday and then bailed when the table next to us got the WHOLE TO DO that Hard Rock is known for, there was a Gong and it wasn't for me XD;;;!!! Dinner was a shit show, but the rest of the day was nice, until we missed the last train and Elise's boyfriend had to come get our asses LOL. Only thing that would have made the trip perfect would have been if Bry was there <3 Still, pretty decent birthday.
Christmas:... was awkward this year. Went to my Uncle Kevin's house, which is lovely, but none of us can stand our Aunt Gale. She's waiting for my Grandparents to drop so she can collect. Only shows up when one of them is sick. She's rude and obnoxious and I wouldn't mind if she fell off the face of the Earth to be honest. But she has horses and they rock, until she traps you in the riding ring to give you a training class. We were all thrilled...really -_-;; Food was good, they don't exchange presents so we had to run to my Grandparent's first to do that. All the cousins were together at the same holiday party for the first time in...ten years? Maybe more then that? It was awesome though. Besides the fact that we all wanted to escape most of the day, it was a decent Christmas.
Work: Still managing. Wanna slap people. The End XD!
New York City: I'm going for five days :o! This excites me for many reasons. A) I get to spend all of it with Bry :3! B) Going to see the Lion King on Friday(hopefully) as well as hit up all my favorite eating places. C) Ryan and Ben might be coming down on Saturday to hang out with us! I really hope they can make it. Ryan needs some Katy time and I wanna meet Ben! Double dating FTW! D)No working! I love that city :3 It just better stop snowing so I can GO Thursday morning. Only thing I don't look forward to is the 4 hour bus ride. I don't know how Bry does it all the time XD I'll have my compy and *crosses fingers* HOPEFULLY internet to keep me amused. Oh yeah...and I have to pack. Yuck XD
Con Season: It's upon us again. I know, I should cut back on the ones I go to, but I have a good time and now that I have a better paying job, I can save money a little better and still go to a few. (Until I get an apartment, and then I might have to cut them down) However, this year AB is gonna rock because- Hmmm I dunno if I can say or not >> Let's just say it's not a skit, but I'm helping out this year. Still attending and dressing up!
-Sorata, X/1999 (p.s. If ANYONE is interested in doing an X group with me that would be amazing~~~)
(those are the only confirmed ones right now. Might throw a new one in :3)
CtCon is another hosting gig and I think one of my favorites now. Dating Game and Masquerade.
-Sherlock Holmes and Watson(making for Ryan <3)
NEFE...I dunno. I guess I have a free ride in this time because I worked for them. It's really going to depend on who the special guests are and if I do go, it's only going to be for a day. I don't think I'm working for them ever again. Definately not running any of their events. Fuck that.
Costume: (if I do god)
AAC: WELL DUH! This is my favorite con :3 Still have to do my 'Interview' with Lisa, but I plan on coming back to Host again. Hopefully with a better schedule -_- I know there were little things I was suppose to introduce last year, but I never got a confirmation or a write up...really disorganized last time. But I made it to all the big events so that's what matters I guess :) Looking forward to the theme this year, and I think I figured out what I want to host as.
-America (has to make a return)
-Komui <-Hosting outfit :3 (D Gray Man)
**Side note: Hopefully a much less, drama free con season (Ha.)
Apartment: By September, I wanna be moved out of my house. It's time. I love my mom and I know living here for free, I have a good thing, but I need my own space. Sarah J said she would like to move in with me and I know she and I could live together with no problem. She's super easy going and pleasent so MAJOR props to that. I'll be excited for more room for my stuff, better organization and just a place to call my own. And a bigger bed. Saving for a bigger bed lol! So hopefully, by the end of this summer, we'll find something. Keep your fingers crossed kids!
Car: I OWN MY CAR BITCHES. IS MINE AND PAID OFF AND MINE. One less bill to pay :) w00t w00t.
All right, I've filled your friends page enough. I'll go disappear again for another 3 months XD Lata kids~
