Note to Self:
Start off being as loud and carefree as possible so that future cohabitants (if things come to that ever again) can understand that I am being deliberately extremely considerate by trying my best to be as quiet and unobtrusive as I can. The walls aren’t thick, the stairs aren’t quiet, the doors are loud as fuck and the stairwell is no place to talk because sound carries directly up to our bedrooms: just because my noise is minimal doesn’t mean yours is, especially when you’ve probably never heard what inconsiderate living sounds like (unless you can somehow perceive yourself through walls). If I dropped my consideration this late in the game it will just look like I’m being a purposefully loud asshole instead of her understanding that I’ve spent all this time being absurdly considerate.
being late stresses me out but being early stresses me out too
I’ve found that being in general causes me constant stress.
bluh bluh sick and planning
I need to figure out what exactly I wanna get done for A-kon (presuming I can go since I’ll probably be getting a costly apartment by myself around that time, once my current lease ends with The Roommate).
What is everyone else working on for A-kon? I’d like to possibly group up and I’ve got a long list of potential cosplans to choose from. Or it would just be helpful to know so I can plan what to wear which days etc.
I’ve been sick since I woke up in San Marcos on sunday after bff’s birthday party. bleeeeeeh, I thought it was a slight hangover but, nope, turns out that I coming down with something. I am a snot factory and it is awful. I suppose it is about time though: all that activity the past month clearly has a price!
Pretty sure no Scarborough this weekend, kinda bummed as I wanted to see all the Whovians but it’ll be nice to do some much needed nothing: laying around with The Boyfriend, catching up on our weekly shows, eating all the things and possibly playing some vidya.
For some reason I had this delusion that April wouldn’t have any events that I need to plan for but I need to gather my girls together and 1)make TOS Star Fleet Uniforms before DCC 2)host a How2Spandex Leo/unitard sleepover within the same time frame 3)Figure out all the odds and ends of our Outer Senshi fuku construction plans so that we can make them by Akon 4)Scarby 5)Samurai Pizza Kitten’s Birthday <3 6)do some general apartment shopping and try to figure out if I wanna stay in Euless or move to a different part of DFW (suggestions for a cheap, safe area for a 1bd apartment??)
AFTER THIS WEEKEND I WILL HAVE DONE THINGS EVERY WEEKEND FOR AN ENTIRE MONTH.
I know that probably sounds dumb and commonplace but, for me, this is new, exciting and worth posting about.
I’ve been so busy the past several weeks!
I had a bunch of crafting to do before we met GRRM at Aggie-con (College Station) in order to get our Jon and Dany costumes done. The weekend before that I drove down to see my bff who was in town for spring break and we had a lovely slumber party!
The weekend after meeting GRRM (this past weekend) was Anime Matsuri (Houston) and I had a bunch more cos-work to burn through before that (and then 2 days before the con decided to start on PG V3?? didn’t get my leotard done though).
Now, this weekend is rolling around and I’m driving down to San Marcos for the aforementioned bff’s 21st birthday! She has been trying to lure me down there for ages to try VTM larping so we shall see how that goes! I have hopes as well as reservations. I’m almost done with her gift and then I’ve gotta do some character building and put together a “gritty fab” outfit before I start packing.
So yeah, I have been crafting pretty much non-stop!
All this excitement is pretty wonderful, as I am accustomed to having too much time on my hands which I am learning just leads to getting overwhelmed by ALL OF THE THOUGHTS, analyzing EVERY MISTAKE I’VE EVER MADE and drowning in WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE (which then results in me wanting to distance myself further from people….and then that in turn grants more time to the negative consuming thoughts).
In the recent past I’ve been a near total recluse but all this pleasantry is giving me cause to reconsider my habits.
OH, and next weekend I was thinking about going to Scarborough Faire perhaps? Evidently that is the weekend all the Whovians come out (and Steampunks too, unfortunately. bleh).
I am sick and gross and I ate my last soup and I want something cake-like too.
I thrift too much so now every time I go to do any Real Shopping all I can think is “$50?! I won’t play $5 for those boots!”
I dunno about you guys but I like to look at my cosplay pictures if only to remind myself that I hold the potential to look great.
I spend 97% of my non-cosplay time at home looking like a fat hobo (when I bother with clothing).
It just takes effort to look nice and I’d rather spend my time getting to a save point, reading til the next chapter or refreshing tumblr than putting on make up and fixing my hair.
Not that I am faulting gals who take the time to do this! I honestly think that they’ve probably got their priorities much straighter than my own.
I hate going out when I look wretched but, as I mentioned, I am often too lazy to look decent so instead I sit at home and do nothing.
I was going to go through my Ask Box and reply to a bunch of old Asks but then I went in there and looked around and saw how old things are and…
Nope, I can’t.
I have 350+ messages in my Ask Box, going all the way back.
I’m tempted to clear my Ask Box and star fresh but I can’t do that either! It is even more awkward!
I wish all my friends were here with me so that I could hug EVERYONE.
