SO I'M BACK IN WALES YET AGAIN. After the explosions with my parents I'm sort of glad I left (because the night before I left my aunt decided it was HER turn to make me feel like a worthless piece of lazy ass which is always fun) even though it means the dawning of a new year and the fact that I'm supposed to be graduating in uhhhh 5 months? AHAHA. Fuck my life.

My room is still balls cold, and I have to resort to wearing gloves when I'm working up here on stuff. I actually used the heater for the first time in ages because oh my god I was so fucking cold under a winter duvet and a blanket and hats and gloves and socks and a kigu that I needed the extra warmth.



YOUNG AVENGERS CHILDREN'S CRUSADE ISSUE 4 CAME OUT and I was very disappoint. Come on Heinburg, Tommy is not 15, and I know you are fixing that but god. Way to make me feel skeevy about playing him for a second there fdjknhfjknfhd. Other than the horrifying lack of Tommy in that issue, I liked it a lot! Did not expect the ending and was all :O when it happened and blah blah blah everyone who this matters too is already all over this. HERP. Trust me for being late to the flail party over LJ but I assure you much flailing was done over twitter (which I have been using a lot more recently I think I am addicted) and AIM.

ALSO [livejournal.com profile] virtualdon gave me my late Christmas present, which is the Axel Formation Arts figure that is only available in Japan and I flipped out. I put him together straight away and oh my god I love his face so fucking much I am actually beside myself. I also got my presents from [livejournal.com profile] batfowl (THANK YOU SWEETIE!) She sent me a pretty bracelet and Cupcake rice paper toppers with fucking Shiba Inu puppies on them. They will be the most adorable cupcakes I will ever create I don't even.

And idk if I said this before but my flat mates pooled together and got me a Raikou plushie AND HE IS SO CUTE I DON'T EVEN??? I am forming an electric type plushie ARMY (I have a Jolteon, Ampharos, Elekid, Rotom and Raikou now :D Blitzle and Emonga are on the LIST as well as Luxray if I could ever fucking find it for less than a billion dollars) but I am glad in the knowledge that I'll never be as bad as this even though I am super jealous of like pretty much everything she owns.

Oh I just realised I am rambling. HERP.

ONE LAST THING I GUESS, I was saved today by my tutors who decided to extend the dissertation draft final for another 10 days, as I was really starting to work myself up into a state over the fact that I didn't do as much work over Christmas as I thought I would've. I'm going to aim to try and finish it this week and get a couple people to read it and I'm aiming to do the full 8,000 words to make it easier when the deadline comes around again. And we have deadlines in February and I have to do so much work that I'm thinking about setting up a 9-5 work regime to see if I can actually motivate myself every day to do SOMETHING. Wish me and my procrastinator of a brain luck guys.

It's going to be a bumpy year BUT HOPEFULLY it'll all be worth it in the end and I'll never have to write another fucking essay or use Harvard referencing ever fucking again. >:(

also I promise I wrote this journal not drunk even though it totally seems like I am.
purapea: (misc; rainbow dog)
SO I HAVEN'T UPDATED IN A WHILE. That's mostly because I've been working every day and passing out at incredibly early times for me, so I've not been doing much.

It seems that the sales post was sort of a failure too, since I only sold to people I know, and the only one who was interested in other stuff dropped out soon after agreeing to pay for stuff (why would you do that?) I'm glad that I worked as much as I did last week, because I definitely have enough for my Rent/Deposit, and I also have a little left over that will be going toward food for the first two weeks that I'm not in classes/have my loan. But it's really upsetting that the amount of work I put into that sort of amounted to nothing. :I

I also had enough to buy myself a KIGU and I have been wearing it pretty much every day since I got it because my room is so motherfucking cold.


My sister Hannah ended up getting a normal panda, and when we're both wearing them we'll chest bump and be all PANDA PALS!!! and it's sort of ridiculous. I love her to bits though lmfao.

AND NOW IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN!! Time to move all my junk back up to Wales with my parents. I'm not actually moving into my place till the 1st of October, but [livejournal.com profile] virtualdon is letting me store my stuff at her house whilst we wait for my lease to start, which is very nice of her. I would've been moving around the first, but my Dad couldn't get that time off work, so the 26th it shall be. BUT it'll be nice to see her whilst we wait! We're hopefully going to marathon a few TV series because we're awesome like that and try and ignore all my stuff in the corner (omg there is so much of it WHY DO I HAVE SO MUCH STUFF??)

I know everyone's probably been getting this on their flists, but please--do not repost anything onto Twitter or Facebook from my journal without my permission. Till they give us a disable option I'm TRUSTING YOU ALL. OKAY? GOOD. (Seriously though, LJ can go fuck itself with that. We don't want to post things everywhere we are capable of opening new tabs if we want to and it's going to make internet wank a whole new level of horrific if RL social networking is involved. Something tells me you didn't think this through.)

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


tiny update

I ALSO SAW HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON AND I AM IN POST-MOVIE-GLEE ABOUT IT. More on this later though, possibly when I've seen it again. (OH GOD IT WAS SO CUTE AND I WANT A TOOTHLESS PLUSHIE THE FUCK RIGHT NOW) ...and Hannah just showed me some popcorn that she just pulled out of her bra. My cue to end this journal I think.
purapea: (ttgl; upsidedown simon :D)
Hey, does anyone on my flist have downloads of the first Hellboy trade? (Seed of Destruction I think?) I need it for a university project and all the downloads I have are deleted, inactive or on rapidshare and since i'm sharing my IP with the whole fucking university you can never download from RS as someone else is always already downloading something.

I'm probably going to end up buying it, but I need the scans, so if anyone could help that would be most appreciative. (downloading from RS and re-uploading to mediafire would be awesome)


cupcakes are under here. )

I meant to post it on Valentine's day but I got distracted with How I Met Your Mother and Glee, and then I got eaten by university. Better late than never, derp.

Coraline was amazing. I really really want to see it again, so I think I'm going to take Hannah when I go back home. *___* Just, augh. The animation in it fffffff. I was just sitting there in complete awe. The story was so awesome too. Seriously. Go see it if you haven't already. It reduces me to keysmashy.

After I saw Coraline I went to Forbidden Planet to have a browse and bought the last +anima volume and a comic. They had Halloween Town Sora figurines in stock, holy shit. He is even cuter in real life than on the internet. I wanted it so badly but I've been spending a lot of money recently and I seriously need to cut back so I had to leave it there. That was almost heartbreaking ;_;

Also Marvel Adventures is my new favorite thing ever.

TODAY I AM GOING SHOE SHOPPING since the May Ball is on Friday and I only have converse. THIS MIGHT BE A PROBLEM.
purapea: ([ misc ] its like a comic book)
Wow, my day has seriously been comic book oriented.

First I saw the Wolverine movie which I did enjoy! I laughed when he screamed HRRRRROOUUGHHHH instead of going NOOOOOOO both times, and my friends had NO IDEA WHY I WAS LOLING. Overall I thought some of the special effects were a bit lame and that it needed more Gambit with french accent (I wasn't impressed to begin with but he grew on me), more speaking Pietro :|, more cameos, more dramatic explosions, more HRRRRROOOUUUUGHHHHHH and less blob and less DIAMONDS ARE EMMA'S BEST FRIEND. I bet I'll start complaining about it more when I start reading the Deadpool that [livejournal.com profile] otilu gave me, since I'm pretty sure he is meant to have a mouth 8| (Also I didn't know that Sabretooth was Logan's brother but I'm assuming this is either true or something they did for the movie?) But I did enjoy it :3

Then I went to forbidden planet and bought some Runaways Trades and the Young Avengers Presents trade (SHUTUP SQUEAK I NEEDED IT AND I'M TOTALLY GOING TO NEVER READ TEDDY'S ONE ;A;) and got into a conversation about Tommy with one of the dudes looking at the other trades c: THEN we went on an epic book store trek and I got two +Anima books that I was missing (still need 10 but I haven't read 9 so!) and I considered buying the Umbrella Academy but decided against it and THEN THEN we got cheap DVDs (FERN GULLY 8D and The Science of Sleep) and went to wagamama's for lunch/dinner where I drew little wolverines going HRRRRRROOOUGHHH.

I had a good day 8)

I was gonna pick up my issue of Runaways from the post office, Squeak, but it was closed when I got back for 'Unforeseen Reasons' 8(

I'm gonna take a nap now, since I've got to sort out what I'm doing for that presentation tomorrow with my friends later and I'm exhausted. @_@
purapea: ([ runaways ] chase; fist+face=pain)

Surely having a internet cable thing actually plugged into the back of my computer would ensure of a smoothly running internet. Usually it gives me no problems at all, not like my wireless at home which constantly is shutting on and off, but today I spent about 8 hours trying to get my fucking internet to work. During this time I napped for three hours, watched two movies, and 5 episodes of Shaman King and its only just decided to start working, at like, 1am. Its on for now but I'm not sure if tomorrow will be much of the same and since its a weekend it means that tech support is at home and the problem won't be fixed till Monday at the earliest. Muughnrn.

So yeah, if you don't see me about at all, thats the reason why.

On the plus side, I spent the day with my friend Jason, and we did lots of life drawing, fangirled (he's totally camp, he gets no fanboying) Kingdom Hearts, Runaways and other Marvel creations, went on a fruitless mission to try and track down Trials and Tribulations for me, talked about hamsters and goldfish, and he tried to get me to buy a new DS game, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, just so he could borrow it. Git. But he took me to lunch like a gentleman, so I suppose I can forgive him. He's also going to show me where the comic shop is in Newport since he lives here and says we have one, BUT I WAS COMPLETELY UNAWARE. Apparently its in the Marketplace and I didn't even know we had a marketplace. I wonder if this friendship really is healthy for my wallet 8|a

So I love my parents.

They sent me a Valentine's card and I picked it up today. The mail staff was all I HAD TO WRAP THIS ENVELOPE IN CLING FILM BECAUSE IT WAS LEAKING and I was all o_O what?

So I received an envelope wrapped in cling film. When I got home, I unwrapped and opened it, and not only was the card covered in a fine powder, sending a white smoky cloud into the air when I opened it, but there was what were obviously the remains of love heart candies in pieces in the envelope. The British Mail system was too much for them, but they are still in big enough chunks for me to eat, so I'm happy C:

Going to the comedy club tonight, hopefully it'll be as funny as it was last month, but it depends on who's performing. It should be a good night!

As a side note, still waiting for some comics to come in the post >:C damn you ebay sellers and your lengthy time for sending shit out. I want my comics! (Squeaky you've turned me into a monster)
purapea: (Default)
I had a [livejournal.com profile] squeakyorm inhabiting my house for the past few days, which was lovely. It's seriously reawakening my love for DC comics. AAA. It's making it's work get me some of the Titans Go! Trade paperbacks and I am like ffffffkfkhghjgjnfm. WE SPENT MOST OF THOSE TWO DAYS, BTW, WATCHING TEEN TITANS. FUCK YES. but of course meant that I was dead to the internet. DID I MISS ANYTHING GAIZ?

Other than that, I'm somewhat better from my cold, and I'm back at University now (SO LONG REGULAR MEALS, SOB SOB). I also have that 2000 word essay to write still.. I'll get to it eventually, seeing as its due Wednesday. Ahaha. D8

Its also occurred to me that I should maybe sell some of my Doujinshi. The exchange rate is good for me to sell to the states, and all my doujin is just collecting dust, and I really need the money. All of it is good condition, and the art is good in most of them. Would anyone be at all interested in buying any? I'll probably post it on the kh yaoi LJ, but I was gonna open it up to my flist first. I've got, 11 AxelRoxas (most of which are pretty pagey books), 1 SasoDei (Contrail), 1 KakashiObito and 1 AllenLavi.

If anyone shows any interest I'll do a photo post. No idea how much I'm going to sell them for, seeing as a lot of them vary in size and content - for example I have FineFineFine! (AxelRoxas) volumes one and two are lumped into one book, so that would be more expensive than volume three which is on its own. But if you express any interest, let me know C:
