 Long time since I've posted. I miss blogging, but not having a stable internet connection can make one not blog as often. Be warned.... lenghty blog is lengthy~

Be warned: lots of talk of magic and pixie dust and dreams coming true follows...Collapse )

 It's been a while since I've updated here, I feel kinda bad. I can mostly sum it up in a strange variety of eotions.

Anger and hurt, caused by a dishonest woman who made me stupidly and unnecessarily angry at my dad when she distinctively told me my dad had cleared out the back room and that my dad had taken all my things: computer, piano, clothes, and gave them away/sold them/threw them away.

This prompted me to be scared and angry at my dad for months until I gathered the courage to call him to demand my tax forms for my FAFSA, only to hear him sound pleasantly surprised that I called him for the first time in months. I told him how the tenant had said he'd taken my stuff, and he swore to me it was all back there. Fast forward to last week, and the woman's husband showed me that my stuff really all was there. 

So while I feel extremely stupid and angry at myself for this, I like to blame it on Mrs. Tenant. Why she had to spew those lies, I don't know =/

On the plus side, my dad seems really happy that I'm kinda back in his life, asking me if I can make more visits to him to L.A. He was genuinely happy when I went last Monday to pick up my tax forms, even promising to help me get a laptop. He's sad that I might leave to San Francisco, but also fairly proud. 

I've also got a new job. At Disneyland! <3 I'll be working at Studio Disney 365 in Downtown Disney; it's a shop that heavily merchandises all the Disney pop-stars faces: Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus, Jonas Bros., Demi Lovato, High School Musical and stuff. It's not my favorite branch of the Disney empire but it still looks like fun: alongside basic retail, I also get to do little girl's hair and make-up, and play "Purple" Carpet Host to them so they can be pop stars for the day. It really seems like a lot of fun, and I can help little girls have an awesome Disney day like I loved to when I was little, then I can live with Hannah Montana all day :]

I'm anxious about leaving Barnes & Noble, though. Three years with the company, and I really did love my experience there. My managers were amazing, I don't think I'll ever find such professional and down-to-earth managers like mine at B&N. I just don't want to stay there and end up hating the place. I'd rather leave on a good note than a bad one.

Lot's of change is happening. I'm terrified, but excited :D

Wahhhh I don't wanna let LiveJournal die.... but not having the internet sucks and slows down my lack of updates. And I blame Twitter. (which, if anyone wants to follow me, I'm "witchyelphaba". Naturally. XD)

I'm feeling rather woozy at the moment, so update will be brief.

-Bio lecture professor is still a douche, but bio lab is getting fun. Should be able to pass the class fairly well.
-work is much more tolerable. nook is still kinda kicking my ass and I hate selling them, but we've kinda sorta chilled on the darn e-readers. But it's so much fun to play with omgggg. Software updates are pretty awesome... those on Twitter sometimes catch me tweeting from work now XD
-Final Fantasy XIII is EPIC. I'm so in love with it. The characters are awesome, and the voice acting is great. Yes, I mean that. Vanille's voice was odd but it's grown on me. I'm working so damn hard to get into shape for Vanille.... soooo want to join Roxy and Sarah's Lightning and Fang cosplays. I'm only about 10 hours in, and I won't get to play more until sometime after Fanime, but ahhhhhh I love it!!
-My brother, sister-in-law, and niece have officially left California. I'm rather sad and I miss them a lot. My brother left for Navy boot camp in early March, and finished it last week. Toni and Aurora packed up on Thursday and left yesterday morning for Connecticut, where my brother will be stationed while he completes school. I'm kinda lonesome now that they're on the opposite end of the country, and especially since I won't get to see my niece as often anymore. I did my best not to cry when I said by to her and Toni, telling Aurora that I would miss her so so much, she said "Me too. Can you come see us tomorrow?" Wahhhh. She's gonna be taller and more beautiful next time I see her. But I hope I can spend Christmas with them. And I hope they make a much better life out in Connecticut :]
-Fanime~!!!!!!! OMG two weeks ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IS DONE D: But I can't wait. NorCal friends, prepare for epic glompage tiemz :D
-Still at Christopher's. Room needs to get done, soon.
-Oh, I'm 21 now. xD Birthday was May 8 (an exact week ago). And it was wonderful. I went to the SoCal Cosplay Gathering. LOL. Then had a dinner with my dad, then a hang-out with the "family". Didn't drink heavily, but I had a few good drinks. And then Toni took me out for a late dinner a few nights after, where I got a bit more buzzed than ever, but not drunk.

So, yeah, that about wraps it up. I'll try to update more here, but, rawr, it gets hard >.<

.... FANIME :D

Sorry for the huge lack of updates here, as history class has eaten me up alive, though it is spitting me out alive as well.

School, school, enough with school...Collapse )
Trouble finding my own nook...Collapse )
An unusual encounter...Collapse )

 New Iron Man 2 trailer. Why is Robert Downey Jr. So damn sexy?????? :D

The Iron Man suit is becoming a bit redundant, neh? lol, but I love War Machine, and his portable-but-kickass new Iron Man suit that pops out of a suitcase LOL. 

I'm bummed that they're suggesting a relationship between Tony Stark and the Black Widow. I'm sure he's gonna get broken-hearted and pretend to be all tough all the while wanting to cry into Pepper's arms like a little kid and she'll just give him an I-told-you-so look and then they are gonna have a romantic moment and then get interrupted and go back to calling each other Mr. Stark and Miss Potts all formal-like, pretending there's nothing between the two. xD I love those two.

The movie comes out before my birthday, guys~!! Eeeeh what an awesome birthday this year will be :D

 Sorry for the double post, but I've got to post this...


Tsubasa: Tokyo Revelations with The Escapist by Nightwish

I remember falling in love with this AMV a while back, but then got taken off YouTube for copyright infringement =/ It's back, now, though, and it's totally made my day. Her newest one is just as great, too, Tsubasa- No More Sorrow.

I love this song, and I associate it with Tsubasa now lol. But I listen to it when work on TRC cosplay photos, and it makes me want to direct an epic Tokyo Revelations photoshoot one day...

I'm feeling so damn nostalgic for Tsubasa right now. I still really love that series to death...

I'm happy :D

I finished Fullmetal Alchemist last week. My thoughts of it in a nutshell? --->  OMFGAWESOMESADEPIDOMGLOVEIT. Yep.

I did watch Conqueror of Shambala, too, and yes, the connections to our past history and stuff like that was amazing. I'm a sucker for historical cameos and alternate-dimension stories. Though it broke my heart to see Hughes join the Nazi party in this world :(

But yeah, most everyone on my f-list has watched the series so I'll spare you all from a long rant, but overall, an amazing series that I really wished I could have watched much, much sooner.

So... my birthday is 2 months away. And I shall turn 21. I am getting old T_T I'm still wondering what to do. I know some people want to throw me a (not that heavy) drinking party, mostly because I'm well-known for not having drunk any alchohol (I did have a small drink, for the first time, a couple of weeks ago. Mango rum. lol). And I wouldn't mind it as long as it's with close friends and that they don't pressure me into drinking more than I want.

Also, the So-Cal Cosplay Picnic is on the same day as my birthday, LOL. I'm debating on whether or not I want to go. I really don't want to go by myself if I do (I did last year). I guess I'd like to go for a bit (it's so me to cosplay on my 21st birthday XD). But, yeah, I'd go if I didn't have to go alone.

I'll see. Any thoughts, guys?

Okay I should go study now, I have to e-mail some quizes to my professor soon, so, 'bye!
