The past few months…

September


We received the Kuchi Kopi from SDCC.


Sometimes it’s nice to buy yourself something. I usually buy items with black cats, but the cat on this purse looks so much like Bobcat. I just had to buy it. It’s a “small” purse, but the awesome thing is my phone fits into it. The only downside is, there’s no zipper pocket inside for loose change and things like that.


I used to have my movies spread across three small bookcases, which made it hell whenever I bought a new one and needed to add it to my collection. To solve the problem I found this dvd shelving unit, oddly enough by the same company my small bookcases are from. It took us a couple hours just to get the unit put together, and another hour to just get my movies put in order and on there. The best thing is, there’s that shelf that’s an odd height so I’m using it for a figure shelf. And now my bookcases are being used for books.

Let’s talk about Comic Con!

I know, I know. It’s been so long since I’ve wrote or posted anything. Going on a vacation followed by moving, well that just made everything so hard to catch up on. I’ve also been working, it seems like all the time. Being on opening shift is kind of okay. I mean I get the rest of the day to do things, but it also means I have to go to bed crazy early because I get up at 4:10am.

Now, vacation was amazing. I went to Comic Con with my boyfriend and a couple friends. I just can’t wait to go again in a couple years. There are a lot of people, which is no surprise to anyone. I did have a panic attack while lost in the crowd one day when I didn’t go to the convention – I walked around the city instead.

Some Movies

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve wrote anything.  What can I say, work takes a lot out of me. I feel like I’ve been working every day for the past few months. When I get home I usually just go right to bed. On the bright side of things, next week I only close one day – it’s going to feel great to be on a somewhat normal schedule for once instead of getting so used to closing. Something else was sprung on my though, 3 days of opening in a row because a manager is going on vacation meaning I’ll be opening manager for those 3 days. Ugh.

I also put my notice in at work. My last day is July 28th. As of right now they’re transferring me to a different store. We’ll see. Even with the transfer it’s only going to be long enough to find another job. I just don’t want to be depressed all the time like I am now.

I do have the trip to San Diego to look forward to! I’m super excited, now if stupid shit will stop happening so I don’t have to spend money I don’t need to. Let’s just say I have a cyst on my left hand that has to be cut out. Ugh. And the best part is the hospital “lost” my papers about having the surgery. This means I have to spend a day off going to another hospital and hoping they won’t have issues with their papers.

Since I don’t want to be super boring with this short post – I know reading about what someone is doing at work can become rather boring – I’m going to focus more on the movies I’ve watched overt the past month. I haven’t been watching as many movies as I normally do, due to my weird sleep schedule. I’ve been watching things with episodes because it’s just easier to stop watching those. A movie, it’s kind of hard to stop watching.

While talking about episodes, my boyfriend and I have been working toward finishing up a show.

We’ve been watching Salem. I admit, at first I wasn’t really into it. We’re working on the last couple episodes of season 2 though and it has gotten a lot better. There was only 3 seasons of it, which is kind of upsetting.

The current TV show I’m watching (by myself), is Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Netflix only has a few seasons though and they start at like season 14…which makes me kind of mad. Either way I’ve been watching it. I finished one season in a day and a half, but that was only because I had a couple days off. Getting through it when I’m working isn’t that fast or easy. On days I work I may get one episode done before having to go to bed.

I did watch one episode of a new series. American Gods.

Just by the first episode, I’m not in a hurry to finish it. Don’t get me wrong, it was good but I just don’t think it will be a series I’ll really dive into. I’m going to finish it at some point.

Now when it comes to movies, I’ve just been doing a random watch of movies.

Mini-Vacation

I’m home and getting back into the swing of things after a 5 day mini vacation from life and work. Let’s just say, I’m not that excited to be back to work. I liked having stress free days, but the stress is all back now.

Anyways, my mini vacation included C2E2 and Chicago.

C2E2

What is C2E2? It’s a convention that’s all about pop culture. Meaning, it’s not totally focused on Anime and the like. So it’s a great convention for those who just like pop culture but not totally into anime. This was my first C2E2, but not my first convention. It is the biggest I’ve been that, that will end in July with Sand Diego Comic Con.

We only went Saturday, meaning we were there for the biggest day of the convention. Easier for people who work and don’t want to take a day off to go. So it was crowded. I am not a person who gets along in a crowd very well. Not only does anxiety kick in, but people are rude and I end up getting stepped on or hit in the face with a bag or something. People who are 5ft, shut up about being short. I wish I was 5ft because people who notice that I’m there and wouldn’t hit me like happens.

Aside from the general crowd issues, I had so much fun. My wallet did not. This was the first big thing Jason and I had been to together, so it was special too.

There were a lot of great cosplays and I didn’t take a lot of pictures due to the crowds and by the time I seen something great they would be gone. Well, there’s always next year.

Since it’s a pop culture convention that means horror is included. That also means I blew too much money. Okay in reality I didn’t spend a lot on little odd things. I did spend $120 on a beautiful corset. I don’t have pictures of it with me, but it was worth it. Plus, steel boning in it makes it all worth that amount. I’m going to use it as part of my pirate costume this year for pirate day.

Prints (or art in general) is my major weakness and I’m sure all the artists were happy to see me.

I bought this My Little Pony drawing for my niece. The artist signed it. I’m going to frame it so she can hang it up in her room.

I kind of lost my shit over this. I love the original Friday The 13th films and through that I’ve become a fan of Kane Hodder in general – yes he acts without costumes.

While walking through the many booths of artists there I came across a table with the Puppet Master comics on it. This table belonged to the guy who drew the cover art. I bought them and he even signed them for me.

All of these prints are from the same artist. I fell in love with them as soon as I seen them.

This print I couldn’t walk away from. I love A Clockwork Orange (yes, including the book). This fun poster by the artist Robert Luedke is one of the major finds for me at the event.

Now we’re getting into the non art things. How could I turn down a Hellrasier rubik’s cube?!

Chicago

On Sunday we did a lot of going through the city, which means I spent more money on things. I was able to find a couple vintage shops, which were great.

Here I am!

I know I’ve been in a serious MIA situation lately. What can I say, I needed a break. Well it wasn’t the fact that I needed a break, more of a fact that training for my new position at work killed me. The good thing is that I’m finished with training and it felt like it took six years to get it finished. I am now a shift supervisor at work, which is a step under being an assistant manager. I’ve also been closing since I finished training, which mean long nights and I usually sleep most of the day – that is okay with me though.

Still Here…

It’s been a LONG time since I’ve wrote anything and honestly I miss blogging like I used to. I just ended up getting busy with things and never found the time to do it like I used to. I’m hoping, maybe next week, I’ll be able to get somewhat back into the habit – we’ll see!

I’ve been closing at work, so that means I end up sleeping a lot during the day. That just takes all the fun out of everything. Like tomorrow I work 6pm to 2am and Saturday I work 8pm to 3am. I do like closing, but my body doesn’t like when I have to change between a regular “lunch” shift and closing.

With that said, this isn’t going to be a super long post and it will mostly be pictures. I just wanted to sit down and post SOMETHING.

Engagement Pictures

My brother is getting married next year – October, I think – so they asked me to do a couple pictures for them to use as their engagement pictures. It’s been a long time since I’ve been asked to do pictures for anyone, so it was kind of fun to get back to doing something like that.

They went to a park for the pictures. It was kind of chilly, which sucks and the wind ended up picking up because not long after we finished it ended up raining.

Shoes & River

Washington, D.C.

Last month we spent a weekend in DC! It was the first time I ever had a chance to go. It was around a six hour drive (one way). It was cold, but so worth it. I’m hoping to go back sometime within the next year. There’s just so much to see and so much to eat!

Washington, D.C. Washington, D.C. Washington, D.C. Washington, D.C. Washington, D.C. Washington, D.C. Washington, D.C. Washington, D.C. Washington, D.C. Washington, D.C. Washington, D.C.

I have a page full of the pictures I took during the DC visit!
