SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE POST I should get a tumblr specifically for posting random crap or something.

So my mom puts up these 'festive' cards in or toilet every Christmas (we have a thing in the downstairs one where we put up funny birthday cards on the walls to amuse people idk???) and we've had the same ones for a long time. Now, I've seen all these before, but this one literally made me crack up so bad because it now has a SUITABLE REFERENCE and I'd never associated it with Young Avengers before. But god it is the funniest thing to me now.

Here is a picture of the card:

MY LIFE HAS BEEN SO CRAZY LATELY!!!

On Wednesday, [livejournal.com profile] ormery came down to stay with me for a couple of days, and pretty much all of my flatmates, plus one [livejournal.com profile] virtualdon and Squeak went to see the new Harry Potter film. IT WAS SO GOOD I DON'T EVEN. The next one can't come fast enough!! It has to be my favourite so far. God, I love Luna so good, but was really upset they changed Dobby's VA. It bothered me a lot 8( But it was lovely to see it with everyone, and I loved having Squeak around. I missed his lovely face.

THEN my Dad called me to say that he managed to transfer the money he'd brought back with him from Bermuda to my bank account, which meant that I could pretty much buy a Mac whenever I wanted! SO FAST FOWARD TO SATURDAY, I went into Cardiff, and with Donya's help, I purchased a Macbook Pro with Apple Care for three years, and cried at all that money going in one swoop (even with almost £500 off for being a student). But oh my goodness it was so worth it. I have spent pretty much all of today TOUCHING IT GLEEFULLY and admiring how pretty it is and getting used to where the different keys are and new shortcuts (not that it's going to take me long to get the hang of, since I've been using macs for years). And. GOSH. It is so pretty I don't even. So worth the money. I have named it Cupcake because I am predictable. But now I have very light savings to last me till January. Which should be interesting. I had to open up icon commissions, but I doubt I'll get any. Would anyone be interested in art commissions for £5/£10? I'm not sure what kind they would be but I need the money :(

ANYWAY today has sort of being a crazy day of fail when it comes to our house. Because it's been so cold lately (about -2 Celsius for the past three days IN THE DAY TIME AND IT SNOWED WHAT THE CRAP) all of our external pipes are frozen. Which caused our washing machine to spit all it's water onto our kitchen floor. So our landlord came around and took off the frozen pipe outside, which means it's spurting water onto our pavement instead of our drain but it's a fix till the weather clears up. AND THEN not an hour later, we notice a huge puddle coming from under our boiler, and one of the pipes is dripping scarily fast. So we call him back and he comes back out and, again, it's because of one of the external pipes had frozen so the boiler condensation pipe got backed up and overflowed.

And then we realised the toaster had given up the will to live.

FML.

But anyway other than being cold and slightly damp and toasterless, I have a beautiful laptop, had a lovely week and I'm quite content. It's probably going to change because I have a deadline fast approaching and I have thirty seconds of test animations, a three minute animatic to do as well as a whole bunch of concept art and blog catch up, so the stress is kind of getting to me. SHOULD BE INTERESTING. And once I hand in, I get to go home for the winter holidays. Looking forward to that. BUT TILL THEN, WISH ME LUCK ON MY DEADLINE.

You'd think I'd learn to do my work on time 8|;

EDIT: ALSO ME AND [livejournal.com profile] peypea ARE WATCHING SEASON ONE OF SUPERNATURAL, AND FINN HUDSON'S ACTOR, CORY MONTEITH, IS IN THE WINDIGO EPISODE AND GETS EATEN BY A WINDIGO. AHAHA I NEVER NOTICED BEFORE but it was a funny realization.

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.)


In other news OMFG CHILDREN'S CRUSADE I CANNOT WAIT TO HOLD IT WITH MY FINGERS!!! IT WAS THE BEST TOMMYTASTIC ISSUE EVER AND I AM STILL FLAILING ABOUT IT FROM LAST NIGHT FDKJNGKDJDGJKG. I CANNOT PUT IT INTO COHERENT WORDS.


BRB ICONNING THE FUCK OUT OF EVERYTHING.

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

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

ANYWAY HERE IS A BRIEF SUMMARY OF MY TRIP:

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.

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 ♥

And everything is handed in on time. You have no idea how relieved I am now that it's all over, well, at least till next year where the work load is going to like, triple. But I'm not going to worry about that till the summer, when I have to start doing my work. For now I can ENJOY my spare time without feeling utterly guilty that I'm not doing any school work.

-Oh, and hey, [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin, do you want to start up those art projects we did last summer? I think it'd be really fun again :)

I think I'm still going to go ahead and take a week off the internet even though I'm feeling better than I did a few days ago. Not sure how long it'll last since my mom told me that I'm going to be stuck in Wales till the 22nd now instead of going home this weekend, (and oh god that is so boring) but I'm going to make an effort to try and have a bit of time off. I think I'm going to try and get some hardcore gaming time in, sleep catchup, iconning and catch up on TV shows.

People can get in contact with me via email or text if you have my number, and I'll probably be lurking on facebook a little.

See you all around.

Okay so it's official. I have some of the kindest friends ever and I am so lucky to have them @___@

Basically, [livejournal.com profile] hikaridonya, along with the rest of her house mates, all chipped in and bought me an early birthday present--a new DS. I was literally speechless and skfdjngkjngs. There were no words for how HAPPY AND FLAILY I WAS. I CRIED. fsdkjngkjnsgdjkjg. It's the same colour and everything, and the dead DS is still not working so I don't know how to thank them. Like literally sfdkjngkj

It's things like this that reminds me that the human race is fucking awesome.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] sira, why did you not warn me dsfkjngknjkgsn

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

OH SNAP
