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 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.


WHAT ELSE HAS HAPPENED...


OH YEAH

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.

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
purapea: ([ misc ] this situation calls for tea)
Spent the last two days at [livejournal.com profile] squeakyorm's, which was lovely! But apologies to lack of tags over this period of time! I'm kind of sucking with those right now, hurr hurr.

Anyways! A friend of my mom's is a professional photographer, and he gave my god mother an apple laptop for her to use. Of course, she hasn't touched it in the entire year that she's had it, so she decided to give it to me for my birthday since she wont use it. Its an Apple Powerbook G4, about 8/9 years old, stuffed to the brim full of memory and with a lot of decent art programs on it.
The downside is that it only has a 500 megahertz processor (and considering new ones have like 2.4 gigahertz..) so I'm worried that its going to be really slow for what I'm going to need it for - in which case my godmother is going to give it to someone else. Also there's the thing that it probably isn't set up for wireless and I'd have to get an adapter for it if I wanted to use it wirelessly. And the screen is a little loose. BUT. I'm really excited in any case as it'll be the first mac I've owned (I dont care if its a hand-me-down!) and I've always loved their stuff, just been a little too poor to afford it! I'm already in love with it just by looking at it!

One problem though. The battery or the power cable or something is broken, and the thing refuses to turn on! I'm going to take it into the apple store in town tomorrow to see if they can do anything about it and try not to walk out of there with an ipod touch but I don't want to spend a lot of money getting it repaired if it only just turns out to be too slow and in turn useless to me. It'll probably be more cost effective to buy a whole new mac, but I just don't have £700 (at least) lying around. @_@

WE SHALL SEE HOW THINGS GO TOMORROW.

In other news I have so much fucking apps work to do and barely a week left to do it in, and my parents decided we're going away for four days. I don't need this right now auugh.

..and I reserved Chase at [livejournal.com profile] ingen_rpg and I have a beast boy app to write. Methinks its time for a hiatus :|a
