HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] dianoetic!!!!!!




In other news, I've sort of been absent from internet things because I've been working on my first dissertation draft. IT WAS A MONSTER and I eventually got it done (9,810 words!) this evening with the grammar checking and general awesome superpowers of [livejournal.com profile] ormery so I should be around a lot more. Theoretically. I'm going to pretty much be throwing myself at my film because TIME IS EBBING AWAY SLOWLY and I've been focusing on my Dissertation so much that it's started to fall behind, and we have a monster of a deadline in February where everything has to be handed in EVER. ever. I am not looking forward to February.

BUT I just found out that my birthday will be in the Easter holidays this year, and my sisters is actually on Easter Sunday, mine two days later, so I actually might get to be at home for my birthday for the first time in two years. Not sure if I'm going to or not since the end of April is pretty much OH MY GOD MY FILM HAS TO BE FINISHED IN A FEW WEEKS go time, but we will see!

SO YEAH! Hallo internets I missed you. WHAT'S BEEN GOIN ON?

So it’s been a while since I updated this, and in the interim I went to SDCC, left the lovely [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin’s company and flew back to JFK, spent the night in an airport and then flew to Bermuda, which is where I am now. I’m going to write a report on the con, SO THIS ENTRY IS PROBABLY GOING TO BE VERY LONG WINDED as it’s way overdue, but I shall try and keep it short!

But this picture basically summarizes my trip to San Diego:


There was a big Marvel Wall. The Young Avengers had a tiny space to themselves (Cassie and Vision were futher up and Billy WAS NO WHERE TO BE SEEN 8C), and it must have been FATE OR SOMETHING BECAUSE TOMMY WAS THE ONE WHO WAS GROUND LEVEL. FUCK YES I WAS SO HAPPY I DON'T EVEN.

HERE IS WHAT WE DID. If you’ve already read [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin’s report, it’s going to be pretty similar since we spent the majority of the weekend together except you get a running commentary by me, aren’t you lucky. :D


WEDNESDAY - DRIVING AND PREVIEW NIGHT )

THURSDAY - TRON PANEL, AWESOME ARTISTS AND FINAL FANTASY CONCERT )

FRIDAY - BATMANS AND SURPRISE JESSE MCCARTNEY )

SATURDAY- MOTHERFUCKING MARVEL SKJFNKGJ )

SUNDAY - SUPERNATURAL, GLEE AND HOMETIME )

So much for keeping that short, uh.

Oh man though, IT WAS SUCH A GOOD EXPERIENCE! I really want to go again next year, this time armed with business cards and portfolios I think, since I had a couple of people asking for my card and I didn’t have any with me. Derp. I met so many amazing people and had SUCH A GOOD TIME DKJNF ;____;

So about a day after we get back from comic con, I was flying out of Cali and back to JFK to finish my American Leg of this trip. I cannot express how much fun it’s been. I’ve met so many people I never thought I’d have the chance to meet, and I am so appreciative of all the people who housed me and came to see me. I love you all and I hope if you’re ever my side of the world I can return the favour. Seriously thank you all so much <3 <3

Spending the night in JFK was pretty uneventful. I bought a redbull and downed it, and stayed in the baggage collection lobby. The only working outlet was in a Dunkin Donuts, and the people behind the counter were kind enough to let me sit in the store on the floor all night. Of course, the only working outlet had to be RIGHT NEXT TO THE FRIDGE so I was fucking FREEZING all night. My will to be warm was overridden by my will to have internet though. Seriously, THIS IS WHERE I WAS SITTING FOR ABOUT 7 HOURS OMFG.

BUT NOW I AM IN BERMUDA doing family things and working my way through the entire Temeraire series (Currently on book three, already have a Maximus muse FUCK). I’ve had a bit of a turbulent time here, but that’s saved for another journal because I’d rather keep this one as upbeat as I felt coming back from comic con. Needless to say, I can’t wait till I get to go home on the 15th. I miss all my English dudes and I want to sleep in my own bed!

BUT BASICALLY: I FUCKING LOVE YOU ALL <33

It's been a while since I updated this thing! America just takes so much out of you, my goodness! I had a lot of fun with [livejournal.com profile] argasming, we did the following:
-> went to NYC and met up with [livejournal.com profile] meevees and [livejournal.com profile] elektrajolt and did awesome touristy things like going to the Nintendo Store, going to Times Square, getting the new Childrens crusade comic and seeing Avenue Q!
-> went to Philidelphia for Kyaki's birthday and met up with [livejournal.com profile] deltashade and played Green Day Rock Band (FFFFFFF) and it was pretty fucking sweet.
-> teased Kyaki's dog
-> worked on a Post Apocalyptic Zombot rp.. which may or may not be my next thing. Not sure yet.

I miss her dearly, and I'm so thankful for her letting me stay with her and seeing all you guys <3

I'm now with [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin, and we've been doing touristy things too, like going to DISNEYLAND OMG!!! and we also went to Hollywood. [livejournal.com profile] ggmoonycrisco was also here (she gave me this ADORABLE AXEL ARIGURUMI OH MY GOD LOOK AT IT and a bison from Colorado :D) and we met up and hung out with [livejournal.com profile] yamikonumber7 (who gave me an AMPHAROS BOOK MARK AND A JOLTEON PIN FKJNGK) and [livejournal.com profile] universejuice at Disneyland, and it was so nice to meet them <3 If anything, this trip has been amazing so far just because of all the friends I never thought I'd get to meet in person, that I actually did meet. It's been such an amazing experience. (there are loads of photos on facebook if you have my facebook, and there's videos too, which I have YET TO FINISH EDITING because I suck.)

And it's still going. Tomorrow we head off to San Diego for the Comic Con, sans a GG though 8( I'm like, so freaking excited you have NO IDEA. I get to meet artists that I adore, get sketches from them, and MERCH. AND PANELS AND SIGNINGS AND MERCH AND STUFF AND OH MAN I AM SO PUMPED!!

If any of my flist are going to SDCC and wants to meet up WE SHOULD. Making my trip MORE AWESOME by meeting people is always something I'm up for :D

OH MY GOD YOU GUYS I AM JUST FILLED WITH SO MUCH GLEE AND EXCITEMENT!!!!
