SO I'm back in the UK and have been since Monday, but have otherwise been occupied by the lovely company of [livejournal.com profile] ormery for the since Tuesday and today [livejournal.com profile] countersparking has joined the ranks too. We spent the evening eating takeout, watching movies and giggling over stupid things like this, and I have to say it's good to be back with my buddies from the UK. I'll miss all my Americano ones too though (seriously, omg you guys COME MOVE TO THE UK SO WE CAN HANG OUT ;__;) and want to thank everyone I stayed with and met whilst I was out there for showing me such a great time. It means a lot to me <3

Still a little bit jetlagged and missing the heat of Bermuda--it is so cold in england right now I don't even 8(--but it's certainly nice to be back! My mother redecorated my room whilst I was gone too and I now have an ACTUAL BOOKCASE INSTEAD OF A SHELF ON CINDER BLOCKS AND A PRETTY NEW COLOUR FOR MY ROOM which actually is a light shade of Tommy green and white. I'm thinking about putting a big orange arrow made from paper over my bed because it would suit this room and would amuse me endlessly. I'm just hoping my boss doesn't decide to call me tomorrow about coming back to work, since I'm reaaally not ready to GO back. Not for what I was getting for the work I was doing. I'd rather sell all my stuff, which, so it happens, I'm planning on doing but. HRHGHN.

And now that my 'vacation' stint is over, it's time to get back to University preparations--concept and story art for my final film (I'm going to try and do a drawing/painting a day once Squeak and Maria leave up until the point of going back to Uni, if not more) and another dissertation chapter to do which means getting out all my Miyazaki books and reading them over again, which isn't a biiiig deal. But I really should start so I don't fall into the constant trap that I seem to do by putting it off till tomorrow and then when tomorrow is the deadline I end up hating myself for not following through with the work. I AM SUCH A MODEL STUDENT YOU GUYS!!!

And on top of that I've some how been put in charge in organizing all the bills and internet and stuff for the new house and I'm trying to work it out. Gonna get [livejournal.com profile] peypea help me out next week, but MAN that is one thing I miss about living in dorms already. That shit is already done. Sob.

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






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!

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

the appreciation meme

.. yup.

Tomorrow I leave the lovely [livejournal.com profile] somnomania's house, and head back into the city to stay with [livejournal.com profile] artgasming. I'll be getting a cellphone at some point today but it wont have texting (since you have to pay extra monthly for that? wtf america?) but i'll be dishing out the number to people who need it! /o/ ALSO I SEEM TO HAVE GOTTEN SICK FROM THE PLANE 8( That or it's crazy allergies since Kate has a billion animals who I love rubbing in my face because omg so cute, which being allergic to cats, probably isn't a good idea. But I feel like my tonsils are the size of bowling balls and it hurts to swallow 8( I KNEW i would get sick on the plane. I always do. Oh well. I don't think I've recovered from the jetlag yet either, but I'm working on it! I'm going to be so confused when I have to take off another three hours for LA. My body won't know what to do with itself. orz
purapea: (misc; puppy; i got you a stick)
Okay so I was originally going to post a livejournal entry before I left, but then I woke up and started to panic because I couldn't check in online because I didn't have an ESTA form, and by the time it had been sorted out I was in the car on the way to the train station. And I'm stingy so I didn't want to pay for internet at the airport.

BUT ANYWAY. I AM IN AMERICA NOW!! \o/ With the lovely [livejournal.com profile] somnomania who kept her vigil at the airport even though my flight was delayed AND immigration took about two hours. Didn't actually get to her house till 6am English time, so I was kind of wiped 8|b


Lots of bullet points without bullet points because I'm lazy and can't be assed to find an appropriate symbol )

Also, sorry to anyone who I randomly IMed last night, in black font, but I was asleep, and I got hacked by a bot or something? Kate was sitting up, with me asleep next to her and was getting IMed by me 8|b herp derp. I've changed my password, so hopefully it won't happen again, or else I'll have to move im accounts.

EDIT: ALSO! HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] countersparking!!!
I hope you have a great day <3

Wow! It has been a while, LJ. Almost a whole month. I've just been so busy at home that I've not had the energy to update stuff BUT I am finally getting into the groove of things, so here's an update.

lots of rambling about recent awesome events )

Okay I think I'm done rambling. Here is a parting gift.

The How's My Driving? Meme

I'd appreciate some feedback as I've been feeling a little out of the rp loop lately. Constructive criticism is encouraged, especially in areas I can improve. Thanks ♥

I just booked the final internal flights for my American Adventure trip.


And because of Children's Crusade coming out THAT MONTH THAT SDCC is happening, there's a high possibility that there's going to be a panel about it. Or at least some of the contributors milling around at the booth so I can get books signed.

AND I GET TO STAY WITH THE LOVELY [livejournal.com profile] somnomania, [livejournal.com profile] artgasming AND [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin AND MEET PEOPLE ON MY FLIST AND GO TO DISNEY LAND AND AMERICA


Sorry, it's kind of only just sunk in that it's happening and I'm getting so fucking excited you have no idea. And mildly terrified too.

purapea: (pokemon; eeveloution cuddlepuddle)

I got back to uni today after spending part of the day with the lovely [livejournal.com profile] ormery and [livejournal.com profile] countersparking. It's not so lovely that I have a 12 week project and an essay to do in 3 weeks, BUT I ALWAYS MANAGE IT. My lectures start up again tomorrow, and that teacher that everyone thinks is a useless waste of space has taken a leave of absence, so we get to be taught by my favourite lecturer, which I'm totally scyhed about. She's such an inspiration, and totally on my wavelength, and doesn't use long words to make herself sound fancy.

Just three more weeks and then I can have summer! And next week I get to book my final plane tickets for my American Adventure, and then all I have to pay is for things when I'm actually out there. Omg I am so excited.

ALSO my parents gave me an early birthday present yesterday since I won't be home for my 21st (but I'm hopefully going to have a guitar hero evening with cake /stares at [livejournal.com profile] hikaridonya) and it's that Flip Cam that I wanted! So now I can vlog my way around America. FUUUUUCK YES. It's such a cute little camera and so light! I can see why it's popular with the vlogging community.

It's going to be such a great summer, I can feel it :D

Also why is pokemon so addicting again omg I need to go cold turkey

A crazy very stressful week. I don't know how I find time to animate, produce a film, mod a huge rp and write apps all at the same time without exploding. But somehow I manage it. It's been getting to me a bit this week, but I did manage to get to go home for a well deserved break, so there is that. Let's hope next week isn't as stressful (which it probably will be considering I have a deadline coming up) but AT LEAST I HAVE SOULSILVER TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN THE MAIL. Oh my god I am so excited! SO EXCITED. I already started planning my teams and movesets and names and EV points and. Ahhh.

I also have a secure place at San Diego Comic Con this year thanks to the WONDERFUL [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin who is awesome and I can't thank her enough for it <3 SO THERE ARE GOOD THINGS.

On the RP side of things, I caved an apped Chase at [livejournal.com profile] xi_rpg, without dropping anyone. Six characters is a lot, I am not sure how I will manage. So what do I do to cope? App a complex character in a different roleplay. Sob. I finally got around to apping at [livejournal.com profile] vatheon as Axel and I'm hoping I get in. The Roxas looks good and I know the Sora is adorable. It's been so long since I've played him OU though... we'll see :s Also [livejournal.com profile] rakanthtayln enabled me into creating THIS intended for Brotherhood AU. He'll tell people to suit up, and they'll get their supersuits on and... yes.

First off, HALLO to the new people on my flist from the friending meme! I really should have an introduction post thing for when I do add people from those memes, like Oliver 8| BUT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT ME FEEL FREE TO ASK.

There are a couple of things I'm covering in this. Firstly, is AIM working for anyone else? This morning it's not letting me log on via AIM or Meebo, so I'm just checking it's everyone's AIM and not just me @@; AIM has kind of been a fail lately, so I'm hoping it's not just me 8|a;

SECONDLY, I posted icons over at [livejournal.com profile] chaicons last night~! Pokemon ones mostly, but I'm getting together a Young Avengers post. I'm a little hesitant with it though, since I decided it would be a good idea to try iconning the issues from the beginning, so a lot of the icons I made have been made a billion times. I don't know, I have like 80 of them, so it seems a waste not to post them. SHOULD I? I caved :|


I drew some things )
DIS IS MY Lanturn, Lumos, as a human. I'm probs going to do this with all of my electric team because I enjoyed designing her and I might take some commissions if people are interested in chibi gijinka (or just chibi/pokemon/regular commissions in general) since I have no money for my American Adventure yet. WOULD ANYONE BE INTERESTED? ;A;

LASTLY, I get to go home on Friday. Omg I haven't been home since Christmas and I miss my family so much 8( But before then, I have to do a fuckton of pre-production work for the film I'm working on. Like literally. I have so much work that I've been stressed pretty much all the time, and since my sleeping patterns have decided to screw up again, I'm not getting much sleep either. YAYYY. But this time on friday I'll be on a train, so I have something to look forward to at least *___* BUT YEAH I might be a bit scarce till then because oh my god.
purapea: (patf; lottie; eyeroll; wishing on stars)

Man, I never realized how much work I can actually get done if I don't have the distraction of the internet. I'm probably going to be giving away my cable a lot more in the future, because seriously I did so much work. Anyways, here's the final, which youtube decided to squish, yet again. I seriously don't know what it's problem is since I exported in 16:9. By the end of this project, my writing hand had stiffened into a horrific claw shape, and I have a blister on my pinky from the rubbing on the tablet, and it still hurts to use a pen BUT IT IS OVER.

I am so much better now that I don't have that to worry about.
Here is what I have been doing since I completed my work:

→ Slept
→ Played Pokemon and worked on filling my national dex
→ Watched Princess and the Frog
→ Took over 300 screenshots of Princess and the Frog
Made 135 icons (including human!Naveen, Lottie and Facilier) of Princess and the Frog, and I intend to make more since these are only from the first 20 minutes of the film.
→ Booked plane tickets to New York for this summers American Adventure. I still have to book internals, but I'm not doing that till April
→ More sleeping
→ Got grades back on last project, was pleasantly surprised with a C grade as I thought I'd failed /o/
→ Worked on CV for Wagamama
→ Had a bizarre dream about mermaids who looked like the creatures in Avatar but with fish tails, and who stole small children from schools, claiming them to be their own 'daughters and sons of the sea'. There was a trippy underwater grotto, and lots of blue sparkly mermaids and I don't even. Yeaaah.
→ Updated LJ

Thanks to everyone who posted support on my last journal. Although I didn't see it straight away, I was still checking my emails on my friends computer when I'd done a certain number of scenes, so it really helped uplift me when all other hope had been lost.

I love you guys so much ♥
