Doll Commission Status: open
Doll Commission Information: [link]
I realized that I haven't made a journal in a while, so I felt like changing it up a bit.
So, I've done something stupid and started getting back into watching anime. I've also started to read manga less often because of the tediousness of it [i.e. checking for new updates and reading them]. Plus, with manga, I usually end up reading it when I'm bored in class, and that has affected my grades. At least, from what I've noticed so far.
Since I don't think I'll be writing another journal for a long time, I'll announce this now: I'll be going to Fanime 2014 [San Jose, CA, USA]! Not tabling [no products to sell + missed the audition deadline, but not too bummed about it, tbh], but I'll be enjoying the con with a roommate, her boyfriend, some of their friends, and a friend named Dennis.
If you're going and see me [though I'm not sure how you would know who I am], don't be afraid to say hi. Only if you want to though. No pressure.
As for cosplay line-up, so far I'm only really considering doing Korra [Legend of Korra] and Ryuko [Kill la Kill]. By the way, that's Korra from Book One: Air [i.e. season one] and Ryuko's first outfit and her last outfit [I've already made the jacket and gotten the shirt. All that's left is the skirt]. If time and skill permits, I'll also be doing Gamagoori Ira in a group-cos. Or if I get enough money, there'll be a real low maintenance Hanji Zoe [Shingeki no Kyoujin/Attack on Titan]. I don't have enough cold weather resistance to reuse Kida for Fanime. Though I'll probably be editing her costume a bit - you know, improving it a bit.
In other news, I'm going to be off spring break after Monday. TT_TT
Same as always: happy to not be in my hometown, not ecstatic to be going back to classes.
Honestly, because I'm going to be a teacher [and not an architect now] I'll never really stop "going to school," if you get what I mean. You know what we need? We need to have a mandatory three year gap between high school and college to live life and experience more life before we even try to decide what we want to do as a profession for the rest of our lives. Or maybe another god-like gap between education and going to work so we can travel and have a chance to live life before going to work for the rest our lives. Why? Because our current system [at least in California] has us basically working for our job/career starting at the young age range of 4-6 and then continuing to focus on "career" and "life-job" until we're dead. It's not a large problem for people who love their jobs to the point that it's not work for them, but that doesn't change that people need to have some time to relax.
I don't know if I'm just blaming the system, but I feel like I would be more lax and less stiff if I could spare more thoughts and more time to not focus on the "future." It could be my upbringing and the system or just my personality, but I kind of wish I could have a logical reason to not be so "no nonsense." And it's not some kind of thing where I can just go, "Okay, I'm just not going to care anymore." It's so ingrained in me to be strict on myself that it's not something so easily fixed, dig?
Okay, busy day tomorrow, so I'm off to bed.
g'night! luv you all~ <3
