Winter's Here!

Yeah, I know my last post was back in summer. But I'm trying to keep it up? I guess. xD
Fall semester is almost over! So glad. x.x I need the break to start up a workout schedule. Aki and I are planning to cosplay Xena and Gabrielle from the show (you can guess who's going to be who...), so slimming down is required. xD

And dang, do I need a job. T-T I need to pay for school first of all (didn't get financial aid this year), and I need more sewing supplies, especially since I got a new sewing machine from my grandma about a couple months ago, and I've been itching to test it out beyond test stitches and hemming pants. Also need monnies for wigs, to pay off my SDCCI ticket, and to add to the ALA gas/hotel pot. It's coming up soon, and I want to pillage artist's alley. D:

Other news is I might have straight A's for this semester. Hopefully. >< I'll have to be studying my butt off for finals in a few weeks. Anyways, gotta go and do math homowork with Aki. x.x


PS: Both Aki and I miss Miki! And I miss our carne asada fry "adventures". T-T

You can be very muggy, dry, hot, and extremely unpleasant. How I loathe thee... except for when you bring San Diego Comic-Con around. Then I heart you. :D

Got into the Bio lab class, and it's well on it's way to being over. Theater class... Aki and I ended up missing a test last week. x.x

Anyways, I'm entirely ready for Comic Con next week. I just wish it would come sooner. D:

Busy Week

This week has been extremely busy so far, and it's about to get busier. I have 4 graduations to attend, 3 are in the family, and 2 of which is my neighbor's daughter and brother's later today. We have reservations tonight for dinner at P.F. Chang's in addition to a party-thing tomorrow with catered food, decorations, and cake. And you guys know my mom, everything in the house has to be museum-perfect and squeaky clean.

Still on the waitlist for summer classes. I really want to get into that Bio lab and Theater course. T-T

Aki's website is on its way to being completed. I just need to find a place to host it (for free). D: Any suggestions?

Anime Conji - Day 3 (Sunday)

And once again, woke up around 8:30. How the hell do I do that? D: I wanted sleeeep.
Morning brought the masquerade feedback panel, which ended up being a give-the-contestants-their-awards-and-prizes panel. O.o Which only one participant came and got theirs at. The rest had to pick theirs up at con-ops later.

Having done nearly everything I needed to do, I went to go see the Para Para workshop and found out they didn't come. So the cafe maids took over for an impromptu karaoke/dance thing for about an hour/hour and a half before cosplay chess took over the Pavilion. Ended up watching the anime rooms for 3 hours (even though they said an hour), and went to feedback session with the rest of the staff, then closing ceremonies.

Afterwards, I finally had the chance to jump in the pool and jacuzzi for a little bit, talked with people, went back up to the room to shower, and had pizza with the rest of the staff at the dead dog party. Ended up sleeping Sunday night in the con suite and going to school Monday. x.x 'Twas hell.

That's basically it for the con. Done. ><

Oh. And it's all Hector's fault.

Anime Conji - Day 2 (Saturday)

...Only to be RUDELY awakened by Lanae at about 8:30 AM (the rest of us going WTF, why'd you have to do that? DDD:<<<<) and a call from Di (Lyndsey's mom) down in programming ops that EvilBishounen was downstairs waiting me and apparently Reg can't find his badge (which I remember sticking his name on a badge). FML. x.x

I rushed over, tried to find his badge (yes, it was there), and rushed upstairs to take a shower before Greg opened the con-suite. Got changed, brushed my teeth, and it was off to go get Rebecca and another guest for the Masquerade 101 panel. Went well, fair turn-out considering the size of the con, and a couple press there too, which I had no clue how to handle.

While waiting for the first musician to arrive, I went around trying to get people to sign up for the masquerade last-minute (found out from Rebecca that there weren't many), and basically made a fool of myself. :D

Music Festival was okay, but I wasn't there for about half of the musicians' arrivals. >< But apparently it went well. Got to hang out with a couple before heading back to the masquerade room for the meeting, then to the Pavilion tent to set it all up for the masquerade! T-T

Oh my gosh, so much time, work, and stress went into this damn event. Note to con: invest in backdrop for press photos, for the hotel may not be able to provide tablecloths and duct tape next time. Masquerade went well, judging took a little bit more time than I thought and many more prizes were donated for the awards than needed. Awards were announced, and Pavilion got cleaned up for the 21+ Rum Party. The "Gothic Lolita Ball" was all over the place for some reason. People's music tastes kept changing, and it was weird.

Meanwhile, the 21+ Pirate Rum Party apparently wasn't as fun as the all-ages. But they still had a good time nonetheless. I was back in the staff/guest lounge hanging out with everyone else trying to unwind and getting some edible substance in my system finally, and crashed again really late.

Life Update

Something non-con related...
I've been working on a massive (to me. D:) amount of homework that I missed, and now I've ended up sick again. T-T It's just an occasional cough, blowing of the nose, and the roof of my mouth is sore. I hope I don't get what I got last time. >< That sucked monkey balls...

One more month of school until I get a break, and then I get to start up summer classes. x.x

.....I'm really craving saimin. T-T

Anime Conji - Day 1 (Friday)

Woke up to the sound of several attendees waiting in line by the reg table. So many people came to register on-site Friday morning, that we ran out of badges and paper to print them. A lot of people had to wait for multiple hours just to get a badge. I felt so horrible for them. Pre-reg = good idea, yes?

Not only were there several attendees already there, but one of the DJs I had asked to come down was waiting for me down at con-ops. >< Sorry for taking so long, Kyle!
The Meet-The-Guests event started a bit late, and Wendee Lee showed up in time for it. I got some really good mango sorbet, thanks to the hotel <3

Meanwhile, members of the Black Crystals started to show up at reg, most of the line was still waiting, and Hector was losing his head. But the con suite, workshops, and panels were underway and running smoothly.

After everyone had ice cream, the voice actors all went inside for their panel (15 minutes late, might I add), and Markiss, Vince, and I started prepping the Pavilion for the dance. So I had DJ Aura come to set up his laptop, 6:30 rolls around and by a miracle force, Amaya, Hatman, and Hatman's cameraman show up from LA area. Set up goes well, dance gets underway, and HECTOR comes through the doors and surprisingly dances. I had no words for it... x.x

We thought that the hotel didn't tell their other guests about the convention, because they were apparently getting complaints up the wazoo by this time. The hotel liaison from the Doubletree Club Brenda kept having to come over to the tent and telling us to turn it down. Finally, she put her foot down and we had to end it an hour early. Said by to the DJs, they left, and off to the Rum Party I go.

Hung out with a very friendly Tadao, Koko, Tom, Adriel, and JD along with some others who I can't remember at the moment. I went back to the con suite and decided not to sleep there due to the crowd of maids, found out that there was a staff/guest lounge (yay!) with food and water (holy hell, I'm there.), and crashed there for the night...

Anime Conji - Day 0 (Thursday)

Note: This is what I remember happening at the con. If there's anything that you find incorrect, tell me! D:

For me, the con started Thursday afternoon. I went and got lunch, and air pump (finally!) for my mattress, and got dropped off at the hotel to wait for Ryan, Di, and Lapis (chair, vice, and chibi-chair). In the meantime, I noticed that the hotel had already set up several tables outside by the pool and inside in the lobby. Once the chairs got there, we all went up to the con-suite, where I would be crashing for the entire con, dropped off our luggage, and settled down. It wasn't long before more staff started showing up, so we got started on organizing and printing more pre-reg badges.

People were supposed to pick up other people and their crap, so I ended up going with Erron (security) to pick up Greg (con-suite) and all his food/drinks. As soon as we got back we cracked open a case of Mountain Dew and started up on the badges again. Chaz ended up coming by the con-suite for a little while, and I got my picture taken while putting names on badges. :3

Ryan was gracious enough to buy us all delicious midnight Mexican food at 1 am (thank you Ryan! <3) and we went to go hang out in the dealer's hall with Barrie & Hector while we ate. Everyone else crashed at 3, but Hector managed to reel me into helping him set up the tables in the lobby for about an hour. Went to bed at around 5 am with 5 cans of soda and 2/3 of a California burrito in my system on my air mattress.

Back to the Real World

Well, I'm finally back from the con. I think... Sorry I haven't updated in well over a month! I've been busy with the con coming up, school, and other hobbies that take priority. It's been hell for me to recover from all that happened the weekend before last. I think I got a total of 8 hours of sleep that entire weekend. I'll be updating on each of the days starting with Thursday. :]
Meanwhile, I'm not being very smart and pulling an all-nighter to get my homework done. D:

March 19. Why would they remake something within 2 years of the original? The original is amazing as it is. Yes, Jude Law is a great actor, but that doesn't mean he'll make Repo a better movie. I just don't get it. T-T

Wednesday, February 24, 2010


So.... I'm sick. Again. After less than a week of finally getting over that initial cold/illness/whatever-the-hell-that-was. I've been eating soup and drinking ginger ale & tea until it comes out my nose. Art project now late, and more homework due Saturday and Monday. :DDDD At least there's one more week of my cruise and art classes.

Anime Conji meeting is also Sunday, but this time closer to my house. Looks like they finally took my suggestion of doubling the number of meetings. I don't know if I'm ready to beat some sense into the staff members, but I'll give it a try.

One good thing: Firefox 6 now has personas, kind of like skins. Aki says that mine looks like BRS Miku. It's really cute. I love opening my browser now. x3

Anyways, sleep, yes. :]
Night. <3

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

Turned on...

my old crappy Compaq again. I'm so afraid of it blue-screening, but more afraid of losing everything that's on it. So I'm trying to load up my 4-gig flash drive with everthing I can and transferring to my Mac as I go. Discovering some old music and photos that I never knew I had!

I'll tell you how it goes later...

Tuesday, February 16, 2010


School once again has sucked me in. Busy writing 2 papers, a major art project, and another few assignments, half of which are due this week. But 3 more weeks will land me with only 2 classes left. :] So happy for fast-track classes.

Cosplay will be up next to school, but the one I'm working on won't be debuted until next year, depending on when my partner-in-crime will finish hers. >3 There's so many left on my to-do list it's unbelievable. I'm determined to make all of them! D:<

Back to homework.....

Monday, February 8, 2010


Disneyland was really a lot of fun, especially the rain all day Friday. But ever since I've gotten home, I've felt like utter crap. I very rarely get sick, but when I do it lasts longer than normal. I'm trying everything from ginger ale and tea to soup and crackers and cough drops. I really can't afford to miss any school, or anything else.

Doing homework while watching movies and reading in between. How fun.

Happy birthday to my best friend. <3 And yes, I made her two D20 cakes. :3

Monday, February 1, 2010


Just decided to make a quick post for tonight.

School is currently kicking my ass and is limiting my online time. Maybe that's a good thing? I'm determined to get only B's and A's this semester! D:< Since I didn't make any resolutions, maybe that'll be mine? To start getting better grades. It'll do me some good to get off the computer for a while.

I'm going up to Disneyland Resort in Anaheim this weekend. :heart: Which means more photos! God I really need a better camera... T-T Point-and-shoots really just are not doing it for me anymore. ><

I'm going to try really hard to get better at photography and try different things this weekend.

Shot Down...

So I finally registered for all my classes last week, and happened upon an open seat in a photoshop class, which I'm very excited about. I've been using Gimp, and in all honesty it sucks. I've been wanting to learn how to use photoshop so I can get rid of Gimp and it's craptasticness.

So I ordered the textbook from Amazon, and it happens to be Adobe's CS4 Classroom in a Book. It was just delivered to my house today, and tonight was supposed to be my first lesson in the photoshop class. What happens? The teacher gets sick, and cancels class. T-T

God damnit.... Now I have to wait one more week until next class. D:

It did happen to rain tonight, which put me in a better mood. :] Aki and I also went to go visit the wig lady at her shop again, so this means that cosplays are back in production! Garment district, here we come! -gets bargaining pants on- Bring it, shopkeeps! D:<

"Dance like nobody's watching; love like you've never been hurt. Sing like nobody's listening; live like it's heaven on earth."~Mark Twain

Thanks Joy. <3 I hope everything goes well for you.

And just because I love this one so much:
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."~Dr. Seuss

I am now out of STDSU and back at community college. But I don't feel like a failure. In fact, I don't think I've ever been happier in the past year and a half than I am right now. Let's see where this takes me....
Fail? I think not.

For better or for worse?

I'm starting to believe this is for the better.
As if things couldn't get more complicated, SDSU disqualified me for a year.
So now I have to face my family..............AFTER Anime LA. xD


Now to get out of the county....
Oh well. Let's face it: I never liked SDSU, and I really want to go back to SWC to transfer to a UC. This is what I want, not what my family wants.
WTF. I've never wanted to punch myself as much as I do right now.
-feels like a total asshole and idiot-

Here's hoping my friends and LA will cheer me up.

Saturday, January 2, 2010


One more week until ALA! I'll be so glad to get out of SD and up to LA. We're packing up the Christmas decorations this weekend, and I'll be getting supplies and food stuffs this week.
I'm not doing any major cosplaying, as I haven't had the time or money to get fabric and sew. Hopefully next year I'll have a couple ready. T-T

Friday, January 1, 2010

Haha! Haha. Ha.......

Wow. I don't think it can get much worse than this.
Last year, I had the shittiest New Years, which included my mother saying she doesn't care what I want, not being able to hang out with my best friend, only having 1 HOUR to hang out with the few friends that I still had (some of which I'm really not fond of), and coming home only to get drunk with my computer.

THIS year however, I happened to start off 2010 with a fight that consisted of my mother hanging up on me because of miscommunication. When I finally did come home, she and I argued over something so ridiculously stupid. But now she's off to a party.
I hope she doesn't call later to come pick her up because she accidentally drank too much wine.

Happy fucking new year. <3
