Okay, as much as I love Christmas and having a break from university in the winter months, I've recently started to hate snow. It's okay the first day, but when I have to get to university on a bus that isn't there because it snowed and it's too cold to get in, or my plans are ruined because trains are canceled it really pissed me off. Like Oh my god.

SNOW RANT )

In LIGHTER news, me and my mom made lots of Christmas cookies last night, sugar cookies and gingerbread, and we're going to decorate them today. I'll post some pictures up later, since I made a couple of pretty awesome ones including a T-Rex with a Santa hat.

Also my paid account ran out the other day SOB. /STARES AT 15 ICONS

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.

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.
