in the past year, I gained a new best friend, strengthened a few friendships, had some friends move away, watched my nephew learned how to walk and taught him to say "om nom nom nom".
I joined the colonial marines.
I did karaoke and liked it.
I made some fabulous costumes.
this year was amazing for me. I can't imagine what next year holds for me. I finish school in 5 weeks :) and after that there will be adventures with my closest friends.
also I'm getting back into theatre with both acting and costuming.
again. let me re-iterate. this year rocked and I can hardly wait for 2010.
got cast in a show.
designing for 2 shows.
also internship is on it's way.
portfolio is going to kick my ass. it's only the second week and I hope I come out of it alive with a "C".
everything else in my life seems to be picking up in the best way possible. socially, I'm in an incredibly good place. I have the best friends ever. dorothy will be moving closer, not to orlando. but driving distance :). sean is one of my best friends ever and is actually keeping me sane during this term. lords knows I need a rock to keep me grounded. I'm actually terrified about graduating. I feel great and accomplished, but terrified.
well thats it for right now.
just letting everyone know whats going on.
mom's the best ever.
sean is an amazing person.
all my friends are wonderful.
birthday was nothing short of AWESOME :)
new boots (that are also really great for magenta FTW)
and a new haircut.
Jekyll and Hyde
will attempt to see "assasins" but really short on money and I don't have anyone to go with :(
and making time to get out of the city to maybe visit someone while she's down here :3
school starts back up this week.
morgan is coming back soon to visit.
trying to make time for disney before our passes expire.
I can elaborate more later. ;)
ok so I have a few complaints about it but it was still amazing and not nearly as depressing as last year...
we started the con right by getting there a good hour earlier that we though we would... and taking celebratory shots in the hotel room for it...
decided it was clearly time to put the effort out there... so I sustained my fan-girliness and went to see James Marsters... well big fat duh I was nervous... so I talked to him thanks to the line being uber short... and he does infact remember me... he PERSONALIZED THE AUTOGRAPH!!! He's not allowed to do that but he did for me <3 <3 <3 ... LOOOOOOVE.... I handed him my phone number and my room number...
not like I really expected him to call me or anything... but I still put myself out there to someone I've idolized since I was 14... so nothing happened with james marsters after that... but there's always next year and possible FX if he shows up again :3...
I wore my steampunk stuff and oddly enought I felt underdressed... like I didn't have enough leather and should've worn a corset... later on, I wore the gown I made and had the boys escort me to the time travelers ball... except... it was at capacity and we couldn't get in... LAME... so we walked around and hung out at the bars... the marriotte became the new hyatt... it was packed and you couldn't move...
saturday we woke up really early to get ready for the parade... that was a lot of fun... we were on the news :)
our group, the USCM was head of the parade...
afterwards we went to the micheal beihn panel, and then did the colony sweep... I was running to keep up with them to take a crap ton of pictures... I need a better camera... and I can only imagine how tired sean and avvy were with carrying those HUGE guns around...
later on we got ready for dinner, I wore my spiderman sundress that I made... that's right spiderman sundress.... went to the delicious USCM dinner....
afterwards avvy, sean and i went back to the hotel room and passed out... we were dead tired... too tired to go see the rocky horror picture show hosted by FREAKING BARRY BOSTWICK! luckily bart went and got video...
sunday I ran around in my megara dress... and I got one of three things from different people...
"OMG! You're the best megara I've seen all weekend!"
"are you Inara from firefly?"
"Jasmine! from aladdin!"
lol I love dragoncon...
ever been so angry with someone that you want to punch them in the face repeatedly but know you can't because you have no real grounds to do so?
or how about fear that you may be replaced by someone better?
or fear that this may be as good as it gets?
yes yes and no...
