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

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 ♥

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] otilu!
It was weird for that one day I was older than you. Thankfully the universe is now back in balance. oh god how are we 21 now

Okay now that's out of the way, thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday! I really appreciated it, and I think that this was one of my better birthday's, even though I wasn't at home and my mom made my sister an AMAZING CAKE (no seriously look at this thing)

I had such a great day. It didn't start out too great as I had to do some work for my tutor but, man. I had so much fun. I basically went to [livejournal.com profile] hikaridonya's house with [livejournal.com profile] silverbrumby123 and another friend, and we had a BBQ because the weather was so nice, and then played Rock Band for almost 6 hours. And I finally got the courage to sing whilst playing, and I actually had more fun than I thought I would. We also got one of our other friends to sing, and he did a rendition of one of Fall Out Boy's song as Skeletor, and I am not kidding we were all laughing hysterically. I'm so upset I didn't get it on film, because we basically ALL failed because we were laughing so hard. And one of the guys who failed, frequently gets 100% on expert. KJSDKJFN. It was so funny. I'm totally getting one of these, I mean, how else am I going to buy the Green Day version?

But yeah! A great birthday, with lots of amazing presents. It was such a nice break from the stress of work. Thank you all so much ♥♥♥

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 had a [livejournal.com profile] countersparking in my vicinity all weekend, and she was so lovely and adorable ♥ We hung out, watched Princess and the Frog (in HQ! THANKYOU JAMS) and then went to Cardiff and stuff. I really liked having her over, and now the flat is so lonely and empty :( Which I guess is a good thing since I still have a whole lot of work to do, but the distraction was nice whilst it lasted. MARIA YOU CAN COME BACK WHENEVER YOU WANT K ♥

Whilst we were in Cardiff though, we went to Wagamama and on the off chance, I asked if they had an vacancies for waiting staff. The waiter we had told me yes, and to bring my CV in and then they'd contact me about it! Wagamama and Starbucks are two places that I'd love to work (I'll probably change my mind once I'm there because customers lmao) so I'm really excited. I'll have to rewrite my resume and hand it in when I go back into Cardiff on Wednesday to see Sherlock Holmes again. I hope I get a job. It would be so helpful you have no idea, and when I got home in the holidays, I could always just transfer to the Wagamama in Tunbridge Wells, so it would be super handy.

On the subject of jobs too, Disney Interactive have sent around an application and creative brief for an year long internship in London that I'm pretty sure I'm going to apply to as well. Everyone keeps telling me to apply, even though I'm pretty sure I wont get it anyways, but I'll give it a go. It would be so cool to work for Disney--even if it's just as an intern. Aaa I'm excited about that too and I shouldn't be, sob. (but omg it would look so good on my resume and I would be working in london and living in london for a whole year and doing things like storyboarding and animatics and concept art and oh my god basically everything I want to do professionally SCREAMS)

I'm still gonna be scarce all this week. My teachers have lumped more work on us, and I still haven't finished that other thing, but I heard that a lot of my group still haven't finished either, which is a testament to how much work we had to do, if we're all struggling. I mean, [livejournal.com profile] silverbrumby123 handed her animation in a week late, and only 4/12 of us had actually handed in. Which is crazy. Hopefully I'll be finished by Wednesday though, because I seriously want to work on something new. That said though, I'm feeling good about 2010. Yeah. Really good. :)


Oh! And happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] scissorbite!
purapea: (misc; origami)
I hope you all had a good holiday and New Year! 2010 sounds like a good year :) I haven't really posted in a while because I've been busy with a lot of off internet things since I've not been home in like 2 months and family came to stay from Bermuda and then there was a party and then [livejournal.com profile] otilu was here and it's been a little crazy. The house is back to being empty again, and mom's started to take down all the Christmas decorations (it's kind of sad 8( The house looks so pretty with them up) and I've got one week left before I go back to University.

I'm not sure if I'm dreading it or looking forward to it. I have two projects to hand in a couple days after I get back, neither of which I've really worked on since I've been at home, so I'm not looking forward to the all-nighters and stress that is going to go with that, but I do miss my little room and my friends. I dunno. It's weird I guess. Especially since I'm not really happy with my course and the only bits I do enjoy are the social aspects of it. Euugh. Pura make your mind up.

I think the fact that I'm very sleep deprived because I had to share my bed with my sister last night (since our extended family were still with us) and she snores so loudly that I couldn't sleep and i have work in 10 minutes and my shoulder is killing me from walking around London all yesterday with my father and his brother, it's making me grumpy. I just want to go back to bed, but I know that the moment I get back from work I have to sit down and start school work and keep at it as late as I can. Which means I'll be hecka scarce from the internet for like a week. But if I work as well as doing my schoolwork, hopefully I can finally buy my plane tickets for this summer. I've almost got enough money, just another £200 should do it, hopefully. Once those are actually booked, I'm going to feel a whole lot better.

So yeah! I'm not going to be around much at all over the next couple of weeks. I'll probably still be doing tags, but at a really slow pace.

IN OTHER NEWS I got to meet [livejournal.com profile] countersparking again the other weekend (Maria you are so cute omg), along with [livejournal.com profile] otilu and [livejournal.com profile] ormery, and we all went to see the new Sherlock Holmes movies, which I thought was rather excellent and I'm probably going to see it again sometime this week or next. Derp. I'm also probably seeing Avatar when I go back to uni with one of my friends since she's been obsessing over it since she read about it's production, and whilst I'm a little skeptical about the plot, I'll still give it a go.


That is all. Carry on.

So this morning I woke up with a headache, but thought nothing of it and got ready to go into Newport to go X-Box shopping and to pick up a few things I need for this week. Not only did my headache progress into what felt like a migraine, but I also stupidly left my wallet at home so I couldn't buy anything. I found this out when I went to buy an Ampharos, Flaaffy and Mareep figurine set. I was so upset since I had to leave it there 8(

Regardless of my fail, I had a good day with my friends, and then went to see [livejournal.com profile] hikaridonya at her house. Spent a couple of hours there, and then halfway home on the bus realized I left my phone there. Something tells me I maybe should've stayed in bed sick today. Muahh. I'm probably going to go back and get it in the morning before lectures, but right now I want to go to sleep and never wake up because I feel so sick. I think I caught it off of one of my flatmates, as they were both under the weather recently, and I'd been mostly fine.

This day has kind of been a feverish, dizzy haze. Whups.

EDIT: also this.

Going into London today to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] hammster, [livejournal.com profile] gatty and [livejournal.com profile] ormery for some party times, comic buying and general awesomee, and then I'm going up to [livejournal.com profile] otilu's house till Tuesday! I'm not taking my computer, so I probs wont be around till I get home, BUT ALL IN ALL IT SHOULD BE A FUN COUPLE OF DAYS. Cept for the fact that it's actually cheaper for me to fly to Germany than it is to buy a train ticket to Warrington |8 but I really want to see elle so it'll be worth it <3

So I shall see all you marvelous people when I return! Don't set LJ on fire whilst I'm gone!

The How's My Driving? Meme

just because I already feel paranoid enough 8|

Going to London to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] squeakyorm today, and then picking up [livejournal.com profile] finalfantasia and [livejournal.com profile] silverbrumby123 who are staying over at my house for Expo :D can't wait! I've got a really busy weekend ahead of me, oooh boy. Lots of late nights and early starts and walking around London with people who are dressed as dead Itachi, BUT buying Pokemon Platinium today makes it alllll better. |D (it would make it even better if Nintendo were running an event in London so I could get Shaymin, but apparently I'm a month late for that, sobs.)

Also, on reflection I probably shouldn't have stayed up till 3am reading New X-men when I was crying that much (ITS A VERY SAD SERIES ;A;), nor should I have been contemplating with Squeak how Tommy would be the first Young Avenger to die because he's expendable and would probably give his life to save Kate's, because now I fucking exhausted and upset. OH WELL.
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
