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.

KIGU )

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??)

GOODBYE LONDON/CROWBOROUGH I WILL MISS YOU. HELLO CARDIFF/NEWPORT AND YOUR ONE COMIC BOOK SHOP THAT'S KIND OF SHIT YOU BETTER STOCK CHILDREN'S CRUSADE OR I WILL FUCKING CUT YOU.

Do you know what is the most frustrating? It is the most frustrating when you're boss says to you 'I don't know if I'll need you next week, but I'll text you to let you know.' This means you never know when she'll text you at the last minute to ask you to come in, and because you didn't work all of last week because it was so quiet, you cannot afford to refuse any of the days she offers you. Which means, you cannot ever make plans because if you get a text asking you to come in you'd have to refuse it. WHICH MEANS YOU ARE WAITING BY YOUR PHONE ALL DAY FOR A TEXT THAT USUALLY NEVER COMES.

/flips a fucking table.

She did that to me this morning, so instead of spending the day helping my mother finish the decorating on a cake that has to be done by tomorrow, I have to go into work. Which, I mean. YAY MONEY, but BOO having to cancel on my mom, because she really needs the help. But it's a case of who is paying me, and who isn't.


Going to be setting up a sales post sometime in the next couple of days, to try and raise some money for rent and just to get rid of some of my stuff that I never use. I just don't think that work is busy enough for me to be able to get it all before I leave on the 26th, so I'm worrying about it a lot more. My post will have Doujinshi, figures and accessories, pins, DVDs, a couple of shirts and a hoody, videogames, plush toys, japanese cosplay magazines and there will probably be my big list of manga (hell if i am photographing over 200 books) if anyone is interested. I WOULD APPRECIATE if people bought things, so I don't you know. Go into my overdraft before I've even moved into my house 8( sob.

Soooo turns out I didn't get the raise my boss promised to give me. Nobody got a raise. I can understand why she's been desperate for me all week, she has hardly any staff left. And if my loan wasn't coming in two weeks after I need to pay my first rent payment, I'd be gone too. So I'm still on almost below minimum wage for a job that literally is back breaking. I've been working there TWO DAYS and I already have a burn and fucked the muscles in the arch of one of my feet somehow so now it hurts to bend it in certain ways. Which makes getting up off the ground and crouching to pick things up very painful.

It's making me get into gear about possibly opening up commissions and selling some of the anime stuff I don't want or need anymore. I have two huge boxes of manga and anime I am trying to get rid of, as well as doujinshi, plush toys, figures, extra keyblades, stickers--you name it, I probably have it in them depths of my room. I've made myself a selling community which I'll post up here when I've finished making some SELLING POSTS to it, and then let my flist have first picks over my junk and then advertise in LJ comms. HOPEFULLY I CAN SHIFT SOME OF IT AND EARN MY RENT. AND POSSIBLY FOOD BILLS BUT LET'S NOT GET TOO HASTY.

ANYWAY TODAY WAS MOSTLY AWESOME! I went into London and met up with [livejournal.com profile] ormery and [livejournal.com profile] countersparking to see Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, which I thought was amazing. I ENJOYED IT THOROUGHLY and really want to see it again. jfdgndfjg. I also purchased a Scott Pilgrim comic T-shirt and a textbook for my dissertation, and had an awesome fun time with my dudes. INJECTION OF HAPPY GET.

IT was really rainy and miserable all day though, and about halfway through the movie my cold decided to get about ten times worse, so I spent the rest of the day sort of in this... hazey headachey zombie walk. WHICH WASN'T VERY FUN. And now I have a blocked nose and I can't breathe and I have a headache and I have to be in work in the morning tomorrow, which means I can't go see Inception again with my parents. Sob. I mean, I guess I still have a job, but since I have it I am allowed to whine about it.




BUT YES. SCOTT PILGRIM WAS AWESOME. AND MY T-SHIRT IS AWESOME BUT I AM NOT ALLOWED TO SPEND ANY MORE MONEY WITHOUT RAISING MY RENT FIRST AND HIDING IT SOMEWHERE.

brb passing out forever.
purapea: (patf; tiana; ugh so fucking drained)
And so starts the cycle that is the horror of working in an ironing shop.

I started up again today, mostly because she sent me a really frantic text earlier whilst I was fighting a final fantasy 13 boss (she totally threw off my groove and I ended up just turning the xbox off because I was LOSING) and I went in for the afternoon. It wasn’t that bad, just boring as fuck, and we’ve still not discussed my paycheck. I’m hoping i got that raise she was promising me, but who fucking knows. I’m just really worried that working there every day is going to drain me, and I’m not going to have any energy to do anything other than play video games or read stupid comics, when I should be reading text books for my dissertation and drawing concept art for my final film. Which still needs script development and shit, but right now if I even look at it I feel sick.

AND I WAS GOING TO LONDON ON TUESDAY... but I’m an idiot and thought Scott Pilgrim came out a day earlier than it actually does, so it’s not out till Wednesday. So I totally asked for the wrong day off work, and now I have no idea if I’ll be free on Wednesday even though I sent my boss a text at like 6pm telling her I can come in tomorrow instead of having it off in exchange for Wednesday. I’m pretty sure she already hates me again and will make me work both days for just screwing with her schedules OTL.

But at least it gave me a day to read the whole of Scott Pilgrim before I see it. Took me about four hours of solid reading, and I really enjoyed it a lot. And possibly have a Wallace muse but I’m not promising anything.

MOANING UNDER HERE )


ANYWAY. WEDNESDAY I AM HOPEFULLY SEEING SCOTT PILGRIM IF MY BOSS LETS ME TAKE THE DAY OFF INSTEAD OF TUESDAY BECAUSE I'M AN IDIOT. HOPEFULLY IT’LL BE AWESOME AND THEN I WILL GET A COPY OF GOOD OMENS AND READ THE SHIT OUT OF IT. AND POSSIBLY AN XI HOODIE FROM FORBIDDEN PLANET BUT ONLY IF THEY HAVE THEM SINCE THEY ONLY JUST CAME OUT.
purapea: (temeraire; maximus; i am adorable)
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.

BUT YEAH. HI ENGLAND. YOU ARE COLD AND FULL OF RESPONSIBILITIES BUT I GUESS YOU ARE OKAY TOO.

HEY FLIST, if you haven't already heard, mutant prom [livejournal.com profile] xi_rpg has opened reserves! And my god there are like two pages of the damned things.

If you've got no idea what XI is, it's basically a panfandom AU rp game thats set in The Xavier Institute. It's like a highschool AU with laser eyes, since all the students and teachers are mutants. :D :D Reserves last extra long before we open apps next week, so if you are interested, you might want to head over there before someone nabs your dude.



Now I have to go get ready for work, which is a prospect that upsets me so much. sorb.

All I seem to be posting lately are memes. I guess that tells you how exhausted I've been over the past couple days. Been hit with this weird bug thing where I'm all dizzy and headachey and nauseated but still doing things like going to work and getting dragged around town with my sister looking for dresses to wear to my cousins wedding this weekend and rainbow things to take to Gay Pride which I'm also going to on Saturday. Hopefully I'll be better before then because I don't want to throw up :<

Anyways, HERE IS ANOTHER MEME.

ANON MEME



ALSO RE: DRYA3

Teddy: 'William and I.'
Tommy: 'I'm really attracted to her.'

WHAT THE FUCK WRITERS. THEY ARE NOT 60 YEARS OLD.
purapea: (misc; gasp!)
I spent the whole day in 90°F+ weather, ironing. The place I work has one or two fans, but they don't do anything really, so its like a sauna in there. I had to stop for 10 minutes because I felt like I was going to pass out @_@ She's hiring a small air con unit, but I have my doubts if it'll make that much of a difference when there are four super hot, super powered irons on the go. WE SHALL SEE.

What the hell England, when did you get so hot?


Also, I still can't quite believe its the last app period EVER at [livejournal.com profile] daisychainrpg. If you wanted to app there or anything, I'd do it now because it'll be your last chance! They are open for two weeks, and you can apply for two characters, so it's all good! But of course it does mean the game only have a few months left. I have no idea what I'm going to do when it finishes (apart from maybe set up that X-Men AU game 8D) I think I'm going to app Chase from Runaways at DC but not sure. I sort of need a break from rping I think, so having five characters on the go MIGHT NOT BE WISE PURA.
purapea: (kh; axel; nooo not the sprinklers!)
So since Tuesday I've been doing afternoons at the ironing place. I need the money and its only four hours, and since my mother isn't forcing me into it i'm pretty happy to do it. It goes really quickly since I put my ipod on and jam to epic tunes, whilst the others all gossip (I have no interest in this, like AT ALL) about people.

The machines we iron with are highly pressurized steam chamber things, with an ironing board that sucks the steam down through the fabric of whatever you are ironing, so it makes ironing really fast. The thing with these machines, is that they need refilling every few hours or so with boiling water. So you have turn off the power (so the remaining water stops boiling) and undo the top cap juuust a little, so the BOILING HOT STEAM can depressurize and then you can refill the machine. I'm pretty good at judging when the steam has done its thang and I can undo the cap all the way. Sometimes theres a tiny bit of pressure left, so the cap will pop off in your hands, and fly away, but nothing too major since theres like no steam left.

WELL. Today I was put on a machine with a dodgey cap. It sounds like its empty, but its a lie, and its actually really fucking full. So I was emptying the steam so I could refill it and then go home, and since it sounded done, I undid the cap all the way. My hand was then absolutely covered in boiling hot steam, so now I have burns all around my thumb area, wrist and palm. Apparently the machine has done it 3 times in the last week, so it wasn't my bad judgement, it was actually the machine, but FUCK it hurt so much. I ran it under a cold tap when I got home, but it didn't really help. Typing hurts like a bitch, my hand just feels like its on fire. My dad just went to get me some ice as he just got home and was like D8 I'LL GET YOU SOME ICE BB, STAY THERE.

Oh, I'm going back in tomorrow, since I really need the money, and she really needs the staff. My poor hand has gone through so much this week lmao. not only is it bruised from a previous injury I did early this week but now its burnt too. HOW DO I STILL HAVE IT ATTACHED TO MY BODY?


On the plus side! I got my new pair of glasses today~ They are the same as the old pair, but boy does it feel so good to wear glasses that dont induce headaches. My mom also bought me another pair in a different colour (so i'll have red and blue and a pair thats purple and blue /o/) but they haven't arrived yet.
purapea: ([ runaways ] chase; squint; whut?)
So I spoke to my mom this morning since getting to sleep last night was hard (I was scared I was gonna suffocate. It wasn't hurting, it just felt really swollen and I could feel my tonsils pressing on the back of my tongue and YEAH NOT NICE) and she noticed that one of my tosils was covered in spots and told me to go to the doctors. I'm lucky that I got an appointment before work, so I went in and got it checked out. It's either early tonsillitis or early glandular fever (yay! 8|) and I've been put on a course of antibotics for a week. Hopefully it should clear up by then but if not I'm going to have to see the GP in Wales who is sort of insane and talks down at me like I'm a child. Here's to hoping it clears up.

Also I like doing the odd day for Lorraine but someone remind me that ironing sheets for five hours is not good for my feet or my back. @___@
