tahiti: (Kind of a Big Deal..)
I know I've been kinda AWOL for awhile now, so.. now's a good a time as any for updates.

1. (Because lists are fun!) As I mentioned before, my Ethics class kinda consumed the last few weeks of school, since there was a HUUUGE presentation that I needed to have absolutely perfect in order to do well in the class. (The teacher decided she doesn't like me, because I went on an internship and decided to have a sick week and didn't tell her. Whatever.) Fortunately, my partner and I pulled out something rather impressive (we used ALL of our time), and plus.. the teacher made my partner cry. (Partner was going through some rather trying and VERY PERSONAL times, teacher tried to push the issue.. and yeah.)
Anyway, for the final, we had to study stuff from our own presentation, plus everyone else's. I tried out a new study technique of recording myself reading my notes and putting it on my iPod, and I came out of there with a B. Yes.

2. I also made a B in my Regulations class, and an A in my internship class. That means I have a 3.5 for my first semester as a grad student, and a 3.33 overall for the semester. Go me!

3. I started my job this past Monday. I'm a student assistant in the web course support office. Basically, if you're taking an online class and you're having trouble with it, you call us. (Like technical issues, not academic.) We also get some weird calls that we need to redirect sometimes. It's really laid back and I'm enjoying myself so far.

4. I also started a minimester course that's been sucking the majority of time besides my job. It's kicking my ass, and all I want to do is lie in bed and hide from it. And since it's sucking the majority of my time, it's sapping most of my energy, and my cosplay time.

5. Speaking of cosplay stuff, god, I hope I get everything done for A-kon. Giselle may be put on the back burner, and Dean Venture's already being pushed back, but damnit, everything else WILL be done.

6. A-kon: hotel? Check. Volunteer status? Proud volunteer for A-kon TV! Cosplay? ... I'll get back to you. I'm staying in the Westin with some of my Nacogdoches friends, plus my sister. So prepare for some drunken times in my room! Yeaaaah! I'll be there Thursday afternoon, hopefully. I'm also really excited because Hobbit is coming to A-kon!

7. Regarding my last rather serious post: Hobbit is okay. We've agreed to not speak to about it, especially after having a rather serious conversation. She said that the reason she was so affected was because Dave mentioned how his friend killing himself was "selfish bullshit", and she let that get to her. She promised me that everything she told me that night she would've told me anyway. (Well.. there were some things that were rather hardcore in their nature, and I doubt she would've told me any other time.) But still.. she seems relatively okay (okay as Hobbit can be), and we'll be going from there. Again, she's coming to A-kon, and I'm excited to have her here
for the first part of summer. And she has promised me that we will have a day every week that we will get together, so she will have someone to unload some of her issues onto.
I think that's what I miss the most about living with her. We both could just go into each other's rooms and talk about what's going on in our rooms. My favorite part of my day would be when Hobbit would scuttle (she really does do this, it's rather amusing!) into my room and hop into my bed, while I'm at my desk, and we'd just talk. Or just enjoy each other's company.

8. My current living situation: I'm pretty much settled into my apartment, and I've got my friend Nicole living with me for the summer. Things are a little bit cramped, since she's using her air mattress and has settled into the living room, and her things are mostly situated in my closet, but I'm enjoying having her here. My roommate Stephanie is heading to China for a few weeks, so it'll be just the two of us. Nicole's then heading to Indiana for the weekend, and Hobbit's coming up on Memorial Day to join us. Fun times, fun times!

9. Summer movie season has officially been kicked off! So far, I've seen:
-Forbidden Kingdom
-Speed Racer
-Prince Caspian
I'm very happy with my progress. And this weekend is INDY WEEKEND!! I'm so excited! I was afraid that I would be going to see it all by myself, but Lauren is coming to visit Chris, and she promised me that we'd spend some time together, and because both Chris and I are Indy fans, we'll be seeing that. SO EXCITED!

10. Speaking of Narnia...
My thoughts, cut for spoilers )
All in all, wonderful movie, will see again. Must go acquire the first one, so I can watch and enjoy. And the soundtrack was beautiful. I've been listening to Regina Spektor's 'The Call' for like.. an hour? (iTunes check: I've listened to it 5 times since I've downloaded it.)

11. An observation: it seems to me that my MySpace/Facebook pages are like.. dating central.. for my friends. My friend Lauren agreed to meet her current boyfriend Chris for coffee because I was friends with him. And since I'm friends with him, he can't be that bad. And they've been dating for about.. 9 months now? And Hobbit had some guy sending her limericks (limericks!) and he had previously added me on MySpace. (I met him through the DFW Metroplex Cosplay Coalition Scarborough Faire gathering.) So I find rather ironic that I can find my friends possible dates.. but not one for me. Oh! And another fun story: a guy messaged me on MySpace, looking for a date for his brother. Blah.
And it's a little frustrating because you have two females that feed off each other's energy, and we're both rather hormonal and in need of attention from the opposite sex. Yeah, if I'm rather affectionate at A-kon, it's because I'm in need of some attention. And if anyone else says, "BECOME A LESBIAN!", I will stab them in the face. Not because I'm homophobic or anything like that, it's because I've actually had people say that to me. That and to be "patient". Blah.

12. Another thing that's been going on is that I'm really easily irritated these days. I've been rather short with some people lately, and distancing myself from other because I can see myself being really mean and saying shit to them. So yeah.. I don't know if it's just because I'm genuinely irritated at them, or just .. being bitchy because I'm hormonal. So if I'm short or kinda mean, I'm going to try to reign it in, but don't take it personally. Again, I'm living with two other females (well, one right now), and we all kinda feed off each other's emotions, and yeah.. I'm only human. One that is very female, and a) in need of attention from the opposite sex, and b) kinda stressed about life.

13. Nicole and I decided that we're going to write a Harlequin romance novel. It will be epic.

14. Because I can't end things on an odd number, I'll just say this: life.. is pretty good. Now I just need a way to pay for school and rent, and I'll be golden.

Until we meet again,
tahiti: (Tell Me what the Rain Knows // Jupiter ()
My sleeping schedule sucks.

Last night I was up until 5 am, just trying to will myself to sleep. I had a warm towel around my neck (because it's been hurting lately, and that's where I carry all of my stress), took 3 ibuprofen (because in trying to do some of the Pilates movements that I remembered.. I hurt my back), and tried to count sheep.

At least I just have to get through two classes, and work tomorrow. Then my "Super Cosplay Extravaganza Weekend" shall begin.

Which shall consist of:
-Photoshoot of Youko in Azalea Gardens with Dave. Hopefully, there will still be some flowers left.
-Hitting up the Women's Shelter Shop and Goodwill for pieces of Wonderland!Honey-chan.
-Checking out Hobby Lobby and Walmart for any fabric related sales.
-Starting on Toph
-Attempting to restyle Honey-chan wig

There will also be DVDs watched, movies seen (I'm marathoning 300 and TMNT on Saturday), scarves to work on, and homework to be done.
A thorough cleaning of the dorm room is also in order.
I'm not wasting this weekend.
Now, if only I could get some sleep.
Until we meet again,

tahiti: (10 Kinds of Awesome!)
POTC: At World's End Trailer

Excuse me while I go make myself a Barbossa costume. Because Geoffrey Rush is a pimp.
Bill Nighy is too but I think I have a ways to go as a cosplayer before I can make a tentacle face. Otherwise, oh, it would be on.
And besides, I'd have an awesome hat and an undead monkey. Who wouldn't want that?

In other news, I managed to make an 82 on my Accounting Intermediate II test. Which means I have a B in that class right now. Which means I have As and Bs in all of my classes. Yessssssss! I also made a 90 on my General Business class, but I spend most of that class either playing Sudoku or reading. So I win!

Spring is here, spring is here, life is skittles and life is beer! Not really though, because spring means all sorts of lovely little things in the air, which means my allergies are acting up. Bah. To top it all off, I HATE these daily contacts, I'd like to stab them in the face, and I'd like my other ones. So yay!

In other, other news, I get to ride the train on Saturday. *snicker* Which means no Cosplay Day Out. Very sad, but at this point, I don't really have any costumes that need photos of (well, Alice does, but she's craptacular, and I'm kinda mad at myself for bringing her down here, because she only takes up space). Plus, if I go, that may mean that Dave wants to go, and I'd need someone else in the car with me for the two hours that it takes to go to Humble. I love Dave and whatnot, but lately, I've been wanting to kill him more than hang out with him. He also needs to shave. (The grizzly man look does not look good on him, I'm sorry to say.) So, sorry to anyone that was expecting me!

I've also decided that I will be going to A-kon. Most likely, I will be going solo, as my sister's graduation is that Friday, and family is coming down. That said, I'll only be at A-kon most of Friday, missing opening ceremonies to go to her graduation, then returning that night. I'll probably head home Saturday afternoon for the graduation party. Amy's decided that she most likely won't cosplay this year, so the only costumes that will make an appearance for me will be Tamaki/Honey-chan, and Toph. So, Timeless River Donald and Goofy will be at AnimeFEST, and maybe Oni-con. I'm sad that we won't be our usual cosplay duo, but this is my sister's weekend, and I'm trying my best to accomodate both A-kon and family time. (Because I'll be stuck in summer school and missing out on the great Texas migration to AX *sadness*.)

On other cosplay stuff, I've decided that Easter weekend will be my Super Awesome Cosplay Weekend. Since I'm probably going to work through that weekend, and most of SFA will be gone, it's time to bust out some photography and costume work. I'm hoping to at least finish most of Toph, and maybe scour through some thrift stores for Wonderland! Honey-chan pieces. I'm going to also redo Honey-chan's wig, just because I got some tips from Crystal, and maybe even finally get Flower Card's wig all dyed up. I'm out of FC makeup right now, but I'd love to do a CCS photoshoot with people, since I know a bunch of DFW peeps are going to bust out them for A-kon. Maybe during one of my rare weekends home? We'll see. Maybe I can even get my sister into a costume. Another reason why I'm doing it during Easter is that less people around, so I can maybe head out to the Azalea trails for some pictures. It seems like SFA has some perfect settings for Ouran cosplay, and much more. I managed to take a couple shots today of some scenery, and there's also some from last year over at my Facebook.
Scenery @ SFA: March 22, 2007 )
Although I do sometimes complain about Naca-nowhere, the one thing I love about this place is the scenery, especially around fall and spring. So I'm doing my routine of carrying my camera around, to catch pictures of the flowers. I tried to get some pictures of the tulips around the Alumni Center, but because of the construction, no dice. Ah, well.

I have an Eco Stats test tomorrow. Bah. But tomorrow is also Samantha's birthday extravanganza. Booze and karaoke, and I just made a B on a test I totally failed. Hells, yeah! Sounds like a recipe for fun.
Well, I'm off for a short nap, then studying, Ugly Betty, and Grey's Anatomy.
Until we meet again,

My only worry lately is about the biopsy I had done a few weeks ago. I went in yesterday to get the stitches out (which is good because they were starting to drive me crazy), and while the doctor informed me that the preliminary tests showed no sign of cancer, there were still some "atypical cells" and they sent it off to Dallas for more testing. So I'm supposed to know something by the end of this week or the beginning of the next. While the whole "no sign of cancer" does cheer me up, the whole "we had to send it to Dallas to see wtf these guys were doing here."
Bah, I spent most of yesterday in a gloom before the appointment, and now I'm just like, alrighty then. The most I can do is hope for the best. So yeah.

My sister Amy and I at All-Con 2007.

Until we meet again,
tahiti: (STFU! My angry Archimedes icon)
So... guess what I left behind in my dorm room? Let's see...
-my W-2 to give to my dad
-keys to the shop and to my aunt's house
And last but not least...
-my box of fabric (which means Toph will be appearing at Anime Matsuri, and not All-con)

DAMNIT. I wanted to work on Toph this week, at least try and have her done for All-con, but that won't be happening. Guess I'll try to work on Timeless River Donald and maybe try to do Belle's blue dress that I've been daydreaming about. (I did get a bunch of coupons from Jo-Ann's.) If worse comes to worse, maybe I can have new pants for Donald and Amy and I can finally wear Kaoru and Hikaru to All-con. (Which she totally got off work, yay!)
Speaking of All-con, since my sister and I most likely won't be staying at the hotel, anybody got a room where we can just change and drop off our stuff? We'd be much obliged!

I have neve been more appreciative of air conditioning and ceiling fans than this week. I went to turn on my ceiling fan last night to settle in to watch some Kamikaze Girls, and it wouldn't spin and there was this burning smell. Then I remembered that it started messing up towards the end of the summer last year, and so I tried to sleep without my fan. I tend to sleep with my door closed, but it was just like.. it was stifling in my room. I dragged out a fan and my dad turned the thermostat a degree or two, but it was still like, ugh. I want my ceiling fan!

I'll try to post a bit about Danielle and Rob's wedding, but for now, all you get is this: Cherry Vodka Sours are fucking fantastic. And I am a trendsetter.

Until we meet again,
tahiti: (STFU! My angry Archimedes icon)
I'd preferably like to shoot myself in the face, but that would probably result in instant death. I've got three, maybe four, tests this week, Anime Club V-day Party Extravaganza tonight, Alpha Omega Induction as well (if we even get any pledges x_X;; ), the Harry Potter V-day Extravaganza tomorrow night, and planning bachelorette stuff on Friday. I work until 4 today, and then I have to make a Wal-mart run to pick up some candy for the Anime Club and cookies and chips for the HP club. Rawr.

I'm also dealing with the crazy COSPURAY DRAMA LLAMA that I helped feed. I don't know why I just didn't let things be. I had to contribute. Ugh. Now I just want to kill the stupid. With spoons.

Speaking of cosplay... I want to cosplay! I'm hoping to go to All-Con during my Spring Break, and I'm definitely planning on going to Anime Matsuri. The question is... who do I wanna cosplay? If I go to All-con, I definitely want to have Toph there. Which means Toph will make an appearance at Anime Matsuri. Either way, Toph is going to be at Anime Matsuri. But I want to also have a "pretty costume". I've been boys the last few times I've cosplayed, and then I've been Flower Card, but that was really too detail oriented. I want something kind of challenging! Had I been going to A-kon this year, that probably would've meant a Trinity Blood costume for me. Now that most of A-kon is a no-go, I want something else. For AnimeFest, I want to have XXX*Holic's Moro and Maru there. But if somehow I convince my mom to let Amy and I go to Otakon, they'll definitely be there as well. But once again, I want something challenging. I've been going through my cosplay lists, and thinking about who I'd like to pull out. My latest decision has been Fuu, from Magic Knights Rayearth. She's always been on my lists, since she's my favorite character. I'd love to do her Final Battle outfit, with that huge gigantic cape of hers, with those shoulder pads of DOOM. I think for the next few cons, my line-up will be:
All-con: (this con is a maybe)
Toph (Avatar)
Heroes character?
Kira (Dark Crystal)

Anime Matsuri:
Toph (Avatar)
Honey-chan (Ouran)
Wonderland!Honey-chan (Ouran, episode 13)

A-kon: (if I get to go Friday and Saturday)
Toph (Avatar)
Tamaki (Ouran)
Timeless River!Donald or new Halloweentown!Donald (KH)

Otakon: (if I get to go)
Toph (Avatar)
Timeless River!Donald or new Halloweentown!Donald (KH)
Moro/Maru (XXX*Holic)
Fuu (MKR)
Hikaru (Ouran)

Moro/Maru (XXX*Holic)
Hikaru (Ouran)
Fuu (MKR)

Kouji/Kouichi (Digimon- to appease my sister, and maybe do a Digimon group with [livejournal.com profile] kinomotou
Moro/Maru (XXX*Holic)
Hikaru (Ouran)
Fuu (MKR)

The list is tentative, of course. For Oni-con, since I won't have that much access to my aunt's sewing machine during the time between AnimeFEST and Oni-con, the only new costume will be Kouji/Kouichi, since that can be mostly closet cosplay.

Bah, enough cosplay ramblings.
I've got to go take my second test of the day.
Until we meet again,
tahiti: (Default)
Man.. I can't wait!
Yay for Ouran cosplay! *notes her Honey-chan and BunBun icon*

Andddd.. time for bed.
tahiti: (Kind of a Big Deal..)
So I've picked up a journal to get ready for the new year, and my project with [livejournal.com profile] embodiment. It's just a plain, black notebook, but I like it because it comes with a ribbon to hold my place and a another to hold my journal shut. I'll probably grab some of my Sailor Moon stickers I've got lying around somewhere, and decorate it, or maybe even decoupage the front cover. I haven't decided yet.

I also picked up THE coolest desk calender EVAAAR. It's the Disney Days calender, which means I get 365 pages of beautiful Disney characters. The best part? My birthday has THE LION KING! YESSS! Not only is it the Lion King, but it's the scene where Mufasa is explaining the boundaries of the Pride Lands to Simba. Am I a nerd? Hell, yes! But usually, on regular calenders, my birthday month always has the worst picture on there. So I'm super excited to have such a freakin' cool birthday picture. From now on, it's the Disney Days desk calender for me!

Man, I have about a week and a half before I head back to school, and I haven't started ANY cosplay projects. Bad Tahiti. But it hasn't been because I've been lazy. More like lack of funds. My funds won't be replenished until next Tuesday and then I get paid again on the 4th. THEN.. FABRIC GALOOOORRE! And wigs. I need to get a Honey-chan wig for Ikki-con, and I want to go ahead and get a Toph wig. Yaaay Avatar cosplay! =D I'm also debating whether I want to make a Bun-bun for Honey-chan. I may just go scour baby stores and whatnot, and if I can't find a pink fleece bunny, I'll just shell out to make one. Yay for Ouran cosplay.

Along with my cosplay addictions, lately, I've been drawn to ball-jointed dolls, pullips, and pinky st. dolls. I'm thinking I'd like a Little Pullip or a Pullip. Or even both. I'd have to save a little though. And wait until after I get a new iPod and a DS lite. (UGHHHH THAT'S RIGHT! WORK SLAVE MONKEY WORKKKKKK!) But I'd love to have something like the Little Swan or Little Lan Ai and Little Lan Ake. They just look so cute, and I'd like to have a doll like that. It's the little girl in me. I think Papin is adorable. Or if I get Little Swan, I'd like to have Rapha as well, as her "big sister". GAAH, I'm already getting into it. There goes all my other money. I think I'll just stop buying crap at cons. All I really do is buy manga because of the special prices, but I can always go to Waldenbooks or wait for a RightStuff sale (like I really should). Every once in awhile I'll buy a boxset, but I could wait for special sales at RightStuff and use birthday money. I think from now on I'll do that. Bring a little bit of money to buy fun stuff (like the little Sakura figure I've been wanting to go with my Syaoran, Kurogane, and Fai), any special plushies or posters (I want a Howl's Moving Castle, and I also want a Hitaachin twin badge that I saw at Oni-Con), and things like that. But nothing really over $50 to $100. Gah, my hobbies are so expensive. I'd be better off as a drug addict or something. LoL. At least I'll probably be working over the summer. Too bad it's at school for minimum wage. I might sell a couple of volumes of manga, just to get a little extra cash. Blah, why do I have to have such expensive tastes?

But before any of that, I need to get a haircut. My current hair length is atrocious and my highlights are growing out. (I haven't had a haircut since August, and my roots need retouching, since my hair's grown about 2 or 3 inches.) I'm debating about dying it a shade of red. I really like how my Hikaru Ouran wig looks on me, but I don't like that bright of red. I'll probably discuss it with my usual hair stylist, because I'd hate to get it done and then look horrible. We'll see. I'd also like to get my nails and toes done, because it's been ages since I've done anything with them, and my toes look icky. I'd like them to look nice before I head back to SFA.

I've been so bored at night lately, I could really use a project, or at least a fandom to gush over. There aren't any new shoes until I go back to SFA, then it's House, Heroes, Law & Order: SVU, Lost, Grey's Anatomy, and Ugly Betty GALORE! Huzzah!
Speaking of my fandom, I finally watched Underworld: Evolution last night after owning it since Thanksgiving and meaning to watch it ever since it came out. And all I have to say is.. SERIOUSLY?! Did the writers and the director forget everything they set up in the first movie? And um.. isn't there some general vampire guidelines that you have to follow? And when did Selene get those superfast maneuvers? They didn't show up in the first movie, which supposedly happened like.. the day before in the storyline. But oh my.. Michael. *swoon* Oh, Scott Speedman. You were kinda icky in Felicity, but in the Evolution movies.. YUM. And you were all shirtless in this movie. LOVVVVE! But still... There were a lot of inconsistencies, and it seemed like they really didn't follow some of the general vampire lore. But then again, I'm a sad, sad little fangirl. And I'm delighted by Scott Speedman shirtless. And naked. Oh happy days.
Well, that's enough for now.
Until we meet again,
tahiti: (this magic moment // Sophie x Howl)
I am full of righteous indignation. The asshole that shares a wall with me decided to play his music all day long. I have no problem with this, since I am usually out of the room most of the day. But when he decided to play it DURING MY NAPTIME, that makes Sarah angry. Not only did he play it during my naptime, he decided he'd play it around MIDNIGHT TO NOW! As in.. THE TIME FOR SLEEPING! I retaliated and started playing my own music. I hooked up my subwoofer and turned on some nice music. My friend Kesha was like uhhh... oh dear. So yeah. Moral of the story: if you're playing music and I can just about make out the WORDS to the song? You're too loud! You're too loud if your bass makes my walls thump! *rawr* So my big birthday bash is this weekend, can't waaaaaait! It's also the weekend I get my own sewing machine, which means costumes will be started on. My Ikki-con list consists of: -Donald from Kingdom Hearts (with different pants and hopefully webbed feet) -Flower Card from CCS (with accurate wig and new bodice) -Somebody from Ouran (I'm debating on whether I want to be Honey-chan or not. I make a pretty awesome Tamaki, as evidenced here, but my friend Dave has claimed him, so I may just pull out Honey-chan, since I don't want to be twins without my sister.) -Possibly Mitsuki from Full Moon. I'm still debating on whether I want to make one of her outfits. I really just want a new outfit, and something pretty. So Mitsuki is still up in the air. I'm thinking I might even bring back Millie, but that's only if I can make a stun-gun. So.. decisions, decisions. Either way, I have until Christmas break to start deciding things, since Christmas break is when I'm starting costumes for Ikki-con, Anime Matsuri, and A-kon. Well, since it's late and I need to get up in the morning for Income Tax, it's off to bed I go. Until we meet again, Tahiti


Jul. 2nd, 2006 01:08 pm
tahiti: (Kind of a Big Deal..)
Bah, once again I've forgotten to update this thing. If you couldn't tell, A-kon has come and gone (almost a month ago!). It was awesome. Youko was so comfortable to wear, I only wore Alice for a couple of hours (mostly because she's unfinished and I didn't like wearing my sneakers with my costume), but Donald. Oh, man.. Donald was so well recieved. I feel so proud of myself, and of my sister, for the beautiful wand she made. If we stopped for someone to take a picture, like.. 10 more people would gather behind. It was awesome. If you check out my Flickr account, I have some A-kon pictures that I've taken. It was so much fun. And things progressed with Dave! Hehe.. it was quite nice.
Anyway, I'm thinking about getting a journal with Vox, but not something that's a personal journal. I'd like to start like.. a movie/book review type thing. Where I can just type about my thoughts of the books and movies that I'm currently into. I think my motto of the site would be "Well, I have a microphone, and you don't, so you will listen to every damn word I have to say!" from The Wedding Singer. Or maybe not. Just my random musings.
I'm thinking the real point of the site would be just a place for me to write something other than what's going on in my life. I can't really write anything philosophical (my roommate, Allyson, is better than that than me), my politics are all over the place, and the muses haven't visited me in a long time, so I haven't really done anything creative for awhile. Even my newfound love for Angela Aki's music hasn't inspired me. It's a little disheartening, because I love to write. I just haven't had anything to inspire me to write. I'm hoping that just hammering away on my opinions on books and movies will maybe awaken some creativity within me. Who knows? But yeah.. anybody know exactly how I can get a Vox? It seems to be kinda like when Gmail first opened up.. it was invite only. Anybody got a spare invite I can use?

In other news, what's up with me getting weird messages from people on MySpace? Like, I got a message from a guy saying how my profile was cool, he'd like to get to know me better, and that he liked my Millie cosplay rather than my Donald cosplay. Uhh.. okay? I replied to him back, and so far, he's not completely crazy (not like the one guy who kept messaging me, claiming he was not a 'werdio'.. yeah, right). But still.. it's weird. But right now, I'm really just into Dave. I'm not really up for a relationship right now, as far as summer goes, simply because I've been focusing on working and getting money for some new clothes, and some cool new gadgets for my new dorm room.

I really wish my friend Antwan would hurry up and request those books I asked him to. Headlong Hall is for my Lost fandom, and the anime book is just for my increase of knowledge. I also asked him to request a copy of Ann Coulter's new book. I would try and get it from my local library, but they only have a copy on tape. Bah. Allyson has turned me on to David Sedaris, I bought like.. 3 or 4 of his books from my local Half Price, along with my own copy of America. I've been switching back and forth between America and David Sedaris' Naked, but I seem to be focusing more on Naked, simply because it makes me roll on the floor with laughter. I still have so many books to read, and it's already July. The rest of Narnia needs to be read, along with Son of A Witch and Mirror, Mirror. It gets hard to read some of my books, because most of my time is spent at work, and I'd to not have my books smell like an ashtray. And customers tend to look at me funny when I have manga. Blah.

I'm totally addicted to White Chocolate M&Ms. Yummm...
Well, time to pretend like I'm a hardworking employee. (I just got a raise at work, too! Yay for money, and yay for getting cosplay supplies!)
Until we meet again,
tahiti: (strength; Maya Natsume)
So yeah, a long time ago, I said I'd make an Alice costume from Alice the 19th.
Well, guess what.. I have progress pictures! an Alice costume from Alice the 19th.
Well, guess what.. I have progress pictures! Yaaaay!

an Alice costume from Alice the 19th.
Well, guess what.. I have progress pictures! Yaaaay!

Well.. I've got Pilates in like.. 45 minutes, so I should probably get changed and whatnot.

Uhm, yeah.. Bad Tahiti, not updating in like.. a month. Silly me. But things have been crazy busy for me. But I did update my userinfo page!
My weekends are basically the only time of rest for me. This whole 17 hours, plus 2 jobs, plus club meetings, SI sessions, and trying to have a life? Yeah, it's crazy. Next semester? Probably only 12 or 15 hours, at most. I'd like to have a nap every once in awhile, plzkthx.
Besides my crazy, crazy life, I have actually been attempting to forge a relationship. Yes! Tahiti has a crush! Sad, but true. It's on a guy that sometimes comes to anime club meetings, and he's an RA in my building. I've been flirting and whatnot, but I haven't quite figured out if he likes me back yet. I suppose I'll keep working on it, but really, a relationship would be nice, but not necessary.
Speaking of relationships and all that, I had a really nice Valentine's Day. No boyfriends, but plenty of Valentines! Almost all of my friends gave me a little something and I got some money from my mom (which is being spent on printing right now, hehe). I hope everyone else had a nice V-day! Sorry I wasn't around to wish you all lots of love. ♥♥♥
Like I said, I've been crazy busy. I've already had to kind of abandon my year goal, which was to write in a paper journal everyday. Yeah, that didn't happen. But I'm hoping to definetely write in here more. I do check my LJ almost everyday. I just don't update because usually it's just me browsing, then rushing off to class, work, or some other kind of thing.
In other news, the Harry Potter club is going to make wands! I'm sooo excited! We're going to work on them this Wednesday, and we'll be listening to all sorts of stuff, like HP podcasts and whatnot.
And I've also been working on my Alice the 19th costume. I haven't made very much progress, but it's in a good place. Over Spring Break, I'll hopefully piece it all together, then start on the details, while also starting my Kingdom Hearts Donald costume, and Youko from Tactics. Excitttement!
My sister and I may go to this con, All-con, which is at the end of our Spring Break. I'm hoping to finish Donald, so we can go as Donald and Goofy and maybe enter the costume contest. Either way, I'm really excited, because I may even meet some members of the DFW Cosplay Society.
Things with my roommate have been going awesome, because she's an awesome person. We both have a crazy addiction to the Colbert Report (she more than I), and we've also started this thing where if we do something cool, or say something cool, we put our fingers together and go "Go Team Venture!", because we are so geeky like that. I'm really glad that I've found such a great roommate.
I've also found out that dorms are like high schools. My roommate got talked about, because she broke up with her boyfriend, and he came back and would look all pathetic and people would ask him what's wrong, and he'd say something, and now things are being said about my roommate, like that she's a horrible bitch! I'm so pissed off at him, because she was fully justified in breaking up with him, and she's getting called the bitch! AND!! After like.. two weeks of totally looking pathetic, calling her, IMing her, even leaving her notes, he has a new girlfriend! I'm astonished, really. Because I thought he was going to get his shit together (which is why they broke up in the first place), and try to get back with her, but no. Now he's with this other girl, and I'm just like.. jeebus, rebound. I really want to go beat the shit out of him, for not being able to keep his damn mouth shut. Really, if asked about what happened between him and her, all he had to say was "It was hard, but I'd rather keep it between her and I." But no, he had to go tell his co-workers (he's also an RA in my building), who all talk to each other, then they go and tell THEIR friends, and suddenly, one of our friends is coming up to my roommate and telling her that people are saying she's a bitch. Fucking high school.
Okay, I've ranted and procrastinated enough, time for some accounting homework!
Until we meet again,

Here we go.. another year, another semester. It's only the first day, and I already feel exhausted, but that also could be attributed to the fact that I haven't been sleeping well lately. Hmph..
I also have been concentrating on my project for the year, which is keep a paper journal. I was bad at first, and had to do catching up, but now I'm all up to date. Here's hoping I'll keep up with them.
I think I'm going to also try to keep up with both of my journals. I do tend to update my xanga more, but that's only because more of my RL friends are there. But I really should keep up with the original journal, because I do read everyone's entries, I just rarely post. But that has been the trend with all of my journals lately.
I'm going to have a super crazy year. I'm taking 17 hours, working as a Desk Assistant and a Supplemental Instructor, my vice presidency in the Anime Club, my membership in the Harry Potter Club, and my wish to join a business fraternity. Yeah, I'm going to die.
But anyway.. they're kinda late, but here are my resolutions:
Tahiti's New Years Resolutions (late)
1. Take better care of myself (I'm even starting a diet!)
2. Make all A's. (I want a 4.0 and to be on the President's list!!)
3. Keep a paper journal, but also keep up with my LJ and xanga.
4. Make more friends.
5. Make a love connection..?
Five is iffy. But it would be the horrible irony that rules my life that I would find someone who would be interested in me, and I wouldn't have time for him. Fabulous. Oh, well. I'm open to possibilites.
I finally took advantage of the 6 userpics update, and uploaded a new icon. It's a "artsy/emo/pretty" picture of my new haircut. I only got it cut a couple of weeks ago, so of course, I had to take pictures of it. I'll probably also update my userinfo picture.. sicne I have one up from my birthday and I look like I have a giant bottom/upper lip. Or a singular lip. Yeah..
I also started my Alice the 19th costume. I found THE BEST fabric for the coat, and I'm so excited. Here's some pictures:
My progress on my Alice the 19th costume )
So yaaay, I'm really excited.
And thanks for the nudge, Nina. ^_~
Until we meet again,

Well, tomorrow I'm off to New Orleans, aka The Big Easy. (I think..) Got my haircut today, so I think I look pretty damn fine. Mwahahaha.. Here's some piccies for your enjoyment.

Before and After! )

Well.. back to packing. I may be on, I might not.. depends on if we get free wireless at the place we're staying. We'll just have to see!
Until we meet again,

Well, tomorrow (actually more like later today..), I'm heading off to the great city of New York! Huzzah! My dream is finally coming truuuue! *ish so happy* We're going to be busy, busy, busy!
Times Square! Broadway! Chinatown! Rockafeller Center! Musuem of Modern Art! Statue of Liberty! Central Park! And sooo much more! I'm so excited. I've got my camera almost cleaned off, batteries charged, and my travel diary in hand. I hope to update while I'm in NYC, since the hotel we're staying at (Park Central, I believe) has wireless internet and my dad's taking his labtop. I'm a little upset tho.. the Museum of Modern art is holding an exhibit entitled Anime!!, and they're going to show the first episodes of random shows, like Kare Kano, Kenshin, and all kinds of good stuff. And it starts.. the day AFTER WE LEAVE! When Antwan told me that, I almost wanted to cry! And they had just finished an exhibit on the works of Miyazaki! ARgh.. But I'm hoping that maybe while we're there, we'll catch a glimpse of them setting up.
Ahh.. I still can't wait. It's gonna be greeeeeeat! *stops rhyming now*
I need to show off some pictures of my costume from A-kon. Even though I love Millie, I think that after only one con, I may be ready to put her away. *sob, sob, I know* I'm just bursting with ideas for other cosplay, and such. I really want to have KH Donald ready for AnimeFest, even if I don't get to go. Donald's always been a secret favorite of mine, and I think that I will be a good counterpart to my sister's Goofy. I'm also hoping to get started on our Tactics and Alice the 19th cosplay. If we can't do Alice the 19th, I kinda wanna do a Yoshitaka Amano cosplay.. Yeah, I know I don't play Final Fantasy, but still! The costumes I've seen of his work are absolutely gorgeous.. and I wanna try! I also want to do Revolutionary Girl Utena (Juri), Real Bout High School (Ryoko), Magic Knights Rayearth (Fuu), and Fushigi Yuugi (any incarnation of Nuriko). *siiigh* Such high cosplay dreams!
Well.. it's late, and I should be sleeping.
Until we meet again,
