Hello there! Hello there!

I am the proud author of 4,000 + words! yay!
I am rather puffed up proud of myself. I didn't write a single sentence (complete at least) on Sunday. I got back from the World Fantasy con feeling like I had caught a cold or something. My sinuses hurt and my throat was scratchy.
I've been downing Vitamin C like it's going out of style.
The good news is that my sniffles are being held at bay. and the Better News is that I made up the 1,669 word count and caught up to and surpassed the 3,334 day two word count!

SO, tomorrow the goal is to hit 6000 words and be ahead of the 5,001 word count.
I think I can do it.

Wednesday is a write-in in Monterey. I've been meaning to go but like I said, I am a germ carrier right now, and I thought I would be nice and not expose my fellow nano'ers to my icky bugs.


The World Fantasy con was...interesting.
It was an "Adult" con. The Thrum was very much different than Fanime. I like the fanime exuberance better. I love books, and really enjoyed the panels.
It was nice to see Naamen and meet so many new ppl.
I may try to go to another one sometime. We'll see.

Okay I am done I think, I am going to poke at my story for a bit. Truth be told I think it's crap but as long as I produce I guess I should be happy. It will all work itself out I am sure as we go a long.
I do sort of feel that I've lost my plot. I know it's there somewhere...it's just getting buried under all the: And then Grace did this. And then Patty did that.
I guess...I am just "building" right now.
I was hoping to get all of this "set up" Stuff in chapter one but I might have to break it up into two chapters and introduce Stoney in Chapter Three...*meh!
Oh well he may make more of an impact with a delayed entrance.

Okay off to bed.

Monday!

 

And once again it's the end of the annual fanime con...I am so depressed.  I can't believe it's over until next year. *pout

I was so draggy last year but I am rather pleased...I didn't get the plushies though so that wasn't a good thing.  BUT I got the ears.

I so wanted to swing by the Artist Alley, but I don't think I'll get around to it but who knows things happen.

 

You know that it's been a long convention when you notice the Otaku staggering around like drunks.

Right now it's currently time for all the otaku to start their migrations out of the their hotel rooms and bother poor harried bell boys and demand them to come get their bags and knick knacks.

I have deiced that I won't be bringing so much stuff next year one because it leaves more room for goodies...and I need a job so I can BUY goodies!  But also it gives me room to repack all that crap back into the bags! OH MY GOD So much stuff!  I need to bring less clothes and things so I can at least stuff all the stuff back into my suitcase! Or at least it will be a little lighter. Hm…or maybe I should just get bigger luggage…

 

 I am so disappointed in myself.  I went to the anime for people over 30 panel...I am such a bad person.

*wah wah!

 

Today it's presented by Jonathan Osbourn, who is rather funny but has a tendency to overwhelm people and take over a topic of conversation solely by the volume of his voice.

So we got dragged around a lot but we the people in the room did push back and we had a nice hour long talk about Anime and what drew us to anime.

 

I wasn't happy but, I went anyways. It was kinda meh. Mr. Poitras didn't make it...although I noticed him wandering around the concourse later. Maybe he just didn't want to wake up that early.

 

One of the ladies there said that she sends around $5,000 on this convention! Can you imagine that?!

She and her daughter and her friends stay over all 4 days of the convention…and she spends that much on it?! And that's not even cosplay. What the heck is she buying?! She lives in SJ so it's not like it's travel expenses…wow…

She used to live down in So. Cal and went to Anime Expo..THE CON. She says that it has lost it's "charm" because it's so darn big anymore. She likes this convention better. She says that there is a "Ballroom" there that can hold up to 50,000 people. *Boggles

 

One question that I'll probably gnaw on is:  "What keeps you interested in anime?"

I'll have to think about it…

 

Okay so once I escaped that panel...which was more on track this year than last year, I went back to the room and packed up my luggage. Changed my clothes and checked out. I had them hold my bags for me then went to the convention center.

 

I wateched the last of the AnimeMusic video Top 100 videos (24-1) and a few other little AMVs. Then wandered over to Stage Zero. Stood around a bit and soaked up what was left of the fanime experience. I could have stayed for closing ceremonies but it's like…you don't want it to end. So if you don't "participate" in some of the things it won't in a way…I am not sure what I am trying to say.

I picked up some stuff off the tables that they have. Doubles: one for me, one for Arra. I'll send them off to her when I get a chance.

 

I slowly wandered out the front doors and looked at the last lingering cosplayers and watched the Jesus … people. Okay. I'll have to rant about them…but I'll do it in a separate post. They make me go GRRR.

 

Then I collected my bags from the hotel and caught the lite rail and went home….

Other than those last few tweets….Fanime is over again for another year.

 

I can't WAIT till 2010!!!

 

With Tour of California being held on the same weekend?! Hmmm…choices choices!

 

perotessad: (Default)

Day Two!


It's 7:08 am. I woke up about an hr ago.  These beds are HOT.  Should I make tea and take it with me?

I am going to the Stage Zero First day recap and then at 8:30 am I am going to go watch AMV Hell 3. And then I dunno go to the bank? And then take a stroll through the dealer's room? Or I could go to the bank now...So I am gonna go. Leave this keyboard here cause I'll be back after a little bit because there's nothing to do this early.

 

BBL

okay! SO I went to the Kung Fu showing...which was like the only thing I really had on the schedule today.  And it was really good!  He didn't show the same stuff as he did last year this was "new" stuff and gave a little perspective on what's going on in the theater in Asia right now.  And it was good.

And then I "missed a call" from home >.<

They harshed my happy. 

 

They were calling to tell me that I was now 1k in debt! That the hotel was charging $600 and some change for the room.

And I was like...Nuh-Uh!! 

And they were like WAY.

 

So I went down stairs to go talk to the staff.  And while tripping down the stairs I tore off a 1/4 of my big toes nail. OUCH And BLOOD! EVERYWHERE! This is the worst nail tear I've ever had. it hurts but not so bad that I am limping; I am not. And I am stilling going to the Masque! 

 

Anyways I get downstairs and the girl is all like...well the room is under Marlyin Brown...and I am like...she couldn't make it. I am the only one in the room. So she asked me if I wanted to move over to a King sized room. Yesterday during check-in there was a lady who was hoping for a double because her daughter sleeps like an octopus and flails about everywhere!  So I told the girl: Sure I am willing to move. So I told her I had to go to do something but on my way down I would drop off the keys.

So that's what I'll do after I take a bath and change for the Masque.

 

I'm so staying at the Hilton next year!!!!

 

See you either later tonight...or tomorrow morning.

 

There was a very pronounced police presence this year….

I don't know how that makes me feel. A little jumpy.  Because cops don't show up unless there's trouble.  And I don't like to be places where there is trouble. Anyways while waiting in line at for the Masque I noticed at least 6 patrol cars, and strolling paired patrol men walking up and down the line.

There was a guy in front of me who had just bought a sword and a rover came by and told him that he was going to either have to put it in his room, or in his car because they wouldn't allow him into the Civic Center if he had it. And if he unsheathed it, the Cops could charge him with having a deadly weapon.

So he had to call his grandparents to come down and pick it up and take it home for him.

 

There was a slight disturbance in the line like 20 feet in front of us. The cops yanked some kid out of line…but I dunno what happened to him or anything. I never heard anything. There might be something on the boards though.

 

So the Masque was okay in starts and stops.  They had some walk ons in the beginning. and two martial arts groups before the show. Then the show itself started out really slow. And then there was a pokemon skit!

This was SO EPIC!!! EVERYONE sang along and it got a standing ovation. It was great. There were a couple after that...but for the most part it was Pokemon the winner all the way as it came to comedy and what not.  I kind of felt sorry for the groups after it because how do you beat this?!
With Stagecraft!!!!! And that's kinda what happened. But the judges had to give them something because it was clearly the crowd favorite.

 

 

It's kind of strange. It seems that with the masque, that we'll have great skits all the way through one year, and the next year it's: Meh. And then the next year it's really good! And then the next..meh.

So this year was kind of a meh year.  I had heard that this year the committee screened the skits before they went on. So we didn't get so many lucky star skits like we did last year.

If they did: THANK YOU!

 

Now it's off to Stage Zero to see Dead Fantasy again...IF they can get it to play. They're having technical difficulties right now.  But meh.  They'll probably get it going and I have no other place to be so I'll stick around. Other people aren't so patient and left.

So here it is Monday around 7:30 and I am on the train going back up to SF. JUST made the 168...I feel bad now.
I've been riding the 100 buses uhm like 5 times maybe 6 and I found out today that I've been under paying.
Fare is $3.50 and I've been handing over $1.75. OOPS
I gave the lady correct fare today thank goodness I had it or I'd be in trouble.

Anyways this was a in a sense productive weekend. I got a new travel mug. Looked around at travel stuff...and bought a few things I probably shouldn't have. I did talk to mom about the CC but I didn't push it. I'll email dad later on and ask him about it.
I also forgot to bring up the cord for the camera which I have in my bag. Was ALMOST Too late for the 6:24 am 168 bus but just made it.

This weekend I found out that I GOT an invite to join Dreamwidth! YAY! So I got an account. I dunno how I feel about it or what I'll do with it. I first heard about Dreamwidth at yaoi con last year. I didn't go to the panel but a few of the girls of the LJ panel had gone and were really excited by what they heard and transferred that on to us. If I wasn't a member of that Anstel insane journal I probably wouldn't have heard anything about the invite codes or anything...
I'm kind of excited about this. I hope they are able to keep it going Times are hard and they're asking for around $25 dollars for a basic paid account and $40 a year for a premium membership...in these times that's a lot of money. I was thinking about just buying a membership (if I didn't get an invite) but at $25 I don't think I have the money.

All I DO know is that yesterday the servers went down a few times there was so much traffic. I haven't played around with my site yet or the layout so it is still very much basic.
I think I'll put slash stuff on there though and writing experiments.

Talking about experiments I got to thinking about that story about the space ship crash again.
I was thinking about calling the guide: The Moron's guide to space travel.
Of course the first chapter will have something like. Welcome to space travel. Even if this is your first flight pr your hundredth this guide was written with you in mind. Don't take this guide as the end all be all of all safe space travel but use it as a supplement to your journey. Listen to your flight crew and enjoy one of the most rewarding means of modern travel."
Of course the first chapter is all about So this is your first space flight! What to expect.
Everything that the book says can go wrong....goes wrong in this flight.
It is going to be a bit of a dark comedy I think. Where you turn the page and "bad things" happen. but in a funny way. I am hoping to write it in such a way that when bad things do happen the reader will be all like: "I knew that was going to happen" but chuckling that it is happening and willing to find out how the passengers are going to get out of this. Or at least this one passenger whom we are following. I don't want to panic anyone I want it to be funny and I think it will be funny if I can write it correctly.
I am giggling just thinking about it but that doesn't mean much of anything. a butterfly can make me laugh. I am simple in the head that way.

I really don't want to move home...Not that I don't love my parents but...the house is too small. Can you believe that? But it is! We may meet in the mornings for light conversation but then we just scatter to our rooms and don't come out.
That house isn't made so much for living but for sleeping in and leaving. I want to stay in SF.
oh well we'll see how that all works out.

As we drove through SJ this morning on the bus I noticed that the street banners are up for Fanime! I am so excited about that! I am SO going. Talked to mom about it a bit. and she's like "Are you going to go"
and I am like" I want to."
And she says "Well I guess it's not too far for you to travel if you come down from SF everyday."
And I am thinking...HELL NO! It would be VERY expensive and there's no way I'd do that anyways.
Coming down every day dressed up? HA!
I didn't tell them I had already reserved a room. Although I did tell her that I had already bought my ticket.
She seemed a little impressed that so many people show up for these things. 20,000 a day at Sakura con and 13 million pumped into the local economy. Fantasy really pays!
I wanna cash in :P

I should write Naamen and tell him about wanting to go see him and not being able to go.
I really wanted to heard his manifesto; it was probably stellar. Naames's cool like that.

I am kind of excited about going home. I'll probably bite the bullet and buy the UDPP when we go to Sephora. If I can get those video files to load onto my mp3 player I'll at least have the tutorials.
paint on the face! paint on the face!

What else?
Dad's birthday was Saturday...he's got a cold. Not "THE FLU" but a cold. He's not a spring chicken anymore, he's got to be careful with it. I don't think he thinks of himself as old but he is and the elderly are more susceptible to getting really worn down when it comes to colds and stuff.
He's got to be careful.

We just pulled into Mnt.View…MAN there are a lot of people waiting to get on the train! eek! I guess it's a good thing I put my bags under my seat. At least there's room for one more person to sit at this table. No table space but they can at least sit. ^.^

let me see here...what else?
The bus tourists that crashed are headed home and they say they're in good health and stuff.
OH while I was home I walked to the store. When I am home I don't walk as much as when I am in SF. At home it's like...I need to go to the store, hop in the car. I want to go to the mall...hop in the car.
in SF it's all lets walk down to west portal...lord no! or lets walk down to the school...or lets walk to the "Galleria"!
Walk and take the bus. It's no big thing...when you don't have a car these things happen and you don't mind. But when you HAVE a car it's all about lets drive there!
So I walked down to the store...bought the stuff...and walked back.
Mom was "worried" that I wouldn't be able to bring back the pie, but I have my handy dandy bag! And it fit perfectly in there...with the soup of which I was afraid I was going to de-lid and have it spill and slosh all over the place.

I can't wait to get home! Maybe I'll drop by the library today and drop off some books. I still want to copy a few so I may do that too.
Uhm…what else?
The KD was this weekend. First Saturday in May...x amount of years and dad still doesn't remember that..
Arriving at Palo Alto! how many people?
Not as many as Mnt. View...oh...wait...maybe there are...
I really don't like sitting on this side...I get anxious watching the people make runs of the train.
I like how people either worry or they don't worry.
Some people run for the train and some just stroll even though the trains pulling out. You either make it or you make the next one.

Not so many people at Hillsdale; I don't feel so bad.
Although the little table cubby I grabbed is now full.
I just realized that I didn't reload my Translink.
Thank you Nancy for the money! it's the way I got home. GAH! I wasn't thinking. What can I say...I am slow.
Millbrae. Not too many people get on at Millbrae...but more than a few get off...they're going up the stairs so it makes me wonder where they're going.
Better log off...have to pack and make the trip on MUNI next.

It's good to be home!
perotessad: (Default)

So! Sunday we went to San Bruno … why? Even I am not too sure. I guess it was just an excuse to look around and not write papers or whatnot. At least on Nancy's part.

So because we wanted to leave early and Nancy had yet to do her laundry, we did laundry on Saturday evening. It wasn't busy but there were people in there..who were lazy and had left their stuff in the washers or dryers.

I washed my red top - I was going to wear that to the Career Center but I found that it was stained and so I had to wash it.

 

Anyways! We got up "early" and since the mall doesn't open until 11:00 we took our time and wandered off to catch the #28 to BART. Once down at San Bruno we decided to eat first then go to the mall. So it was off to Red Robins...MAN that place was B-U-S-Y! The Last time we went it was really busy too. I don't remember if we went on a weekend or not...the first time we went I think it was like on a Tuesday and it was like dead.

 

SO! We dropped by Ulta, checked prices on a few things.

I picked up some lashblast luxe for the con. I dunno. I wanted something that would make my lashes longer and curl them but I also wanted the glitterines of the luxe…so I dunno.

 

I am thinking about doing the Lauren Luke Avril Lavigne look. If I can get it onto my mp3 player I'll take it with me to the con. I'd love that look for one of the plaid skirts.

 

Mentalshiver also had a tutorial on a red and black goth look that I really liked too.

 

Then we wandered off to Target and BOUGHT the things we saw at Ulta for way less. lol
Since I bought Nancy two (or three) nail pens, she bought me a pink backpack! YAY >.>
Yeah I know..pink. nancy is like "I can't belive you wanted a PINK one!"
It's small..."made of a woman". I like it. I can fit everything into it. AND the keyboard..AND the camera AND my journal AND pens AND a sweater AND all the other odds and ends I take with me. So I am happy!
We also picked up more traveled sized stuff.  Face wash, lotions, wipes things like that. It adds up though! oo! this is .79 cents! and this is .,70 cents! and this is .50 cents! 
Get up to the register and you've spent like $100!
DAMN TARGET!

There wasn't much at San Bruno we wanted so we just went through it and then came home.

 

Later on that night after watching a few more tutorials Nancy agreed to buy the 74 palette from Coastal Scents! Yay! Shadows to play with!

I broke down and ordered the 13 piece brush set. *wahhh!*

AND I also bought those shoes at Street-moda  >.<

I AM IN SUCH TROUBLE!!!!!

Oh well…

 

perotessad: (Default)
I've FINALLY gotten Deepest Sender to work! I messed up with it when I installed it months ago and that just totally blew it's little java scripting.  But that's okay it's up now and I am happier. This will make posting easier no having to log out and go back around and do jumping jacks or anything....

Okay so what have I been up to?
absolutely nothing.

It's 28 days and Fanime is right around the corner! I am SO GOING! I'll steal back my CC And go!!!
It's the one indulgence I have and I Really enjoy it. So I am 36 years old and like to wander around watching anime and hang out with others who are either total fanboys or AMV watchers or cosplayers. I just really enjoy Fanime and look forward to it every year.
My one Dark spot is that I have no money to pay for it....and no job because the market up here is so picky choosy right now. They can be because so many people are looking for jobs. So they can just pick and choose whoever they want.

Apparently I am not pickable. It makes me feel sad. *emo tear

I need to go on a diet. I am getting too fat because I am not doing anything. I keep eatting and not doing enough exercise. My "large pants" fit now. @.@
yeah....Hydrocutt!!!!

Tomorrow Nancy and I are heading to the Great Mall to go look around. I think we'll be taking out time and just wandering here and there. We are leaving early and catching the BART and then VTA.

Other than Fanime...I don't have a new obsession. *sighs....I need one. lol
I need something to get excited about!!!  Right now I just feel so. . . BLAH!

I wanna get a new cell phone but I am not eligable for a new one until September. >.<
And then I can get it for "Special pricing!"

Can't think of anything else right off the top of my head...if I do I'll write now that it's just a click away.

DFTBA and Best Wishes!!!

Saturday
8:00 am
my feet hurt! my hands ache a little bit too.
AT least I have a vague idea of what I am gonna do today. Gotta get up right now get dressed and then get breakfast downstairs I guess and then it's off to Spice and Wolf so lets go do that...

well I am late to spice and wolf. I decided to go get hot water! yeah...no charge and I stood in my clunky shoes for like 20 mins? lol
my feet hurt and now I am gonna have to wait another 5 mins for the tea to brew, put in sugar and then walk..(yeah right) back to the viewing room to see Spice and Wolf)
I am rather enjoying myself...wish I had company though this place is crazy fun!
wow spice and wolf last episode! Horo in her original form So cool!

Anyways now we're off to the World premier of Studio Sokadei premier of "Cowboy Bebop: The song Remains the same"! The line was HUGE but we got a seat and the movie is about to roll! So type later!

well that was fun. wasn't a parody like I thought it was going to be but a straight translation of the game from *kevin*...it was fun to see it since I never play console games but you know...would have rather it been a parody!
oh well...it's 1:30 so I'll probably go to artists alley and look around. then at 2 it's that fashion show...then from there I'll go to the dealer's room.
My socks outlasted the latex >.<
I had to reapply it. oh well...
So off we go! First time to artists alley ^.^
Squeee!!

okay remind me NOT to come with thigh highs again unless I loose some weight! lol
my stockings kept rolling down my legs. It wasn't all that bad but it was a bit of a pain in the rump. I didn't latex them up as well as I normally do so they "tore" and rolled down. it was uncomfortable.
So what did we do at the con today?
We watched studio sokedei and then went to see a premier of Gurren Legaan which was FUN I liked it.
It was standing room only once people heard what as playing.
I so wish I has someone with me to watch this too. it's a lot of fun. telling this stuff to Arra over the phone isn't the same. She doesn't get the whole experience because it's a visual medium and to just tell someone unless you experience you don't really get what's going on.
tonight it's midnight madness but it's not midnight yet so I have like 90 mins to kill. unfortunately artists ally and the dealers room aren't open so that's out. I guess I could go check out the video rooms but they're already past the "good parts" of the rescue gaara arc which I was going to watch so bah!
I may go back and check out "School Days" Marathon which is highlighted in my schedule but I dunno; it conflicts with Midnight madness which is an awful lot of fun.
I could have gone out to go get something to eat but I didn't want to walk down to McDonalds this late at night alone. So I skipped.
I might sleep in.
Nescaflowne is playing tomorrow at 1 am.
I think they showed the last episode of Spice and Wolf so I don't have to go watch that. if I am really like burning with the need to go watch it I can go look for it on the net.
special A is at 8 am.
There is FMV's at 12 so I might do that instead I dunno yet.
hmm...OH went to the masquerade which was fun...it was like he had a whip and would crack it and they got it done ASAP! So that was great.
hmm...what else?
Wore my black skirt with the corset...it wasn't a bad look...I'm wearing the pleated skirt with black leggings tomorrow although the leggings have a run in them…at least it's in the inner thigh. So after that I'll go to artists alley and then they dealer's room in my "finery"
Arra said I wouldn't have to keep her on a leash if there weren't any guys in uniform, and then a guy in full soldier regalia walked past...and I had to pause for a moment and just bite my tongue...after he was gone I told her about him and she laughed.
We are SO going to Sukara Con!!!
perotessad: (Default)
well we're on the train and rocketing our way down to SJ. Got up at 6 am, took a shower to wake up, packed up everything I think (I am sure I've forgotten something) and trundled down to catch the muni. lord the bags are HEAVY.
at least I have an hr to get to SJ so I can at least relax my feet. I am bringing along this little keyboard although I have yet to add it to the new computer . I will when I get back I guess.
I am so SQQQUUUUUEEEEE excited about going to Fanime! I am so excited that I've exhausted myself by being excited. lol
You know how some years Fanime doesn't have the programs and schedules up? Well they've gone above and beyond this year. Not only were the video schedule up early, but the whole con schedule was up AND someone on the team has added a "Twitter" page so every time they update something...ie schedule changes and maybe room changes it will be sent to my phone as a txt message. How cool is that?!
I am so excited about this after not being able to go last year. In commemoration I picked up a couple new manga. Picked up the 3 book series Dramacon a series which looked like fun but I didn't get it when it first came out. But it's like life imitating art imitating life. We're going to a con reading about a girl going to a Con. it's fun.

I should txt message Naamen. He should be in the air right now getting ready to fly out to wiscon! I hope he has fun. last year he got a racial slur while walking with his friend. That SUCKS. makes me mad too.
Oh well.. I'll send him a txt see if he gets it and if it's his number still.

I am hopeful that TJ will txt during the con too...it will be fun since I don't have a camera! Maybe the little phone will be able to take some pics and stuff I hope so.

And once we get back to SF...it's seriously job hunting time.

Well I made it to SJ with no problems. Jumped off the train, hopped onto the light rail and tumbled off of that to the Fairmont at like 9:30 am. One of the bell hops saw me coming and grabbed my bags for me and I checked in...he took the bags to the room.
So far so good! I like this place. It's nice. 4 stars and worth each and every one of them!
After I dropped off all the bags, I got my paper work and went back down to the Convention Center got my badge and ran off to see the first anime! I watched Wolf and Spice and it was SO GOOD. I sat in the back right in front of 3 fangirls. when they first got in they just watched silently but as they got more and more into it they began squealing and giggling

ooh! Check it out! Got my first twitter message! Says music fest is about to start. I am not going this year though. There are videos to watch which I am looking forwards to.
So far I've watched Spice and wolf ep 1-5, Macross Plus eps 1 and 2, the last part of wings of homenese which I really like. Now that's a classic anime.
I was really happy to see Macross plus on the "big screen" with a full sound system behind it.. WOW That's the way it should be seen.
I could have gone to the opening ceremony but decided instead to go back to the room, watched tv, took a bath, restyled my hair redressed and then came back.
I am looking forward to seeing Kaze no Stigma. Earlier I stayed for a bit and watched Ninja Nonsense which was....funny in a weird Japanese old pervert man way. But yeah they're really lots of fun if you're in a rooom with other people because you can laugh outloud if you like. This is one of the few places where you can giggle and talk to the screen all you like and you don't get laughed at.
Some of these anime though are GAG gag gag..like this one...but it's all in fun.
I SO can't wait to get Arra to one of these! I called her earlier today about this and what's going on and she was like...it sounds interesting but I dunno if I wanna go to one. Sounds dangerous! lol

Anyways, Moyshimon is almost over and then it's time for kaze ne stagima the one I am waiting for. Then I have a 30 min break and then another anime...Myself: Yourself...and then it's time for AMV's top 100! That should run all night

9:12pm
it's like it's noon! There are people swarming all over the place. People are cosplaying and running around I am sure it is like this is the best time of their life and for some.
I am waiting for AMV's gotta find the room but while I am waiting I thought I'd write a little more.
I dunno how long I'll stay for this...
So many nartuos running around. Not so many Sasukes this year but that’s because people have kind turned against him in the lat couple of years because he left Konoha...
Lots of weird loligoths roaming around... the tall fat girls who shouldn't be cosplaying but that's one thing about this place I love so much that you can cosplay no matter what your body type. People just don't care. Although if you're super thin and pretty it goes easier on you but it's still pretty cool that you can be a walking donut and dress up. Which is why I like this place so much.
If I go to Sakura con next year I AM DEFINATLY going to dress up. I don't need to be a character but dress up as a loli or something lolilike. It will be great!

Anyway off to watch AMVs!
May type up more tomorrow or tonight depends on how it all goes.

This is cool...cause there are parents wandering around with their kids as well…thank goodness for chaperons.
I wish I had a camera...so many pics I could have taken and no camera! ARG!

12:16 am

oh my god! Just got done with AMVs...they were pretty good EXCEPT for the Animix thing...it ran a full HOUR Dance mixes set to anime @.@
If the guy had just done five mins...ten it would have been okay...but oh my god! If I ever sit through that again it will be too soon
Then other was an Antichrist piece that was ..UGH. Too violent. If I had known that, that was going to be the last piece tonight I would have left oh well. it's over and we can go back to the hotel and relax and go to sleep and come back tomorrow and do it all over again!

Tomorrow I am hoping to hit the Dealer's Room and see the Goth Loli fashion show!

I got my diploma today. I think I am more "teary" About the damn thing than anyone else in my family.

I also bought a frame, which hasn't come in yet and a class ring.

Okay so it's now March and I have decided that I will get a job this month, so I can afford to go to Fanimecon! See where my priorities are? >.>

yeah..

Anyways! I went to the SFSU Career Center to talk to one of the councilors and get a vague idea of what in the hell do I do with this degree that cost me 38,000? And she gave me some ideas of how to turn the degree..into a "career".
So now I am surfing around looking at Copy writers and Grant writers since I think I can do that sort of thing. My big questions though are: "How do I get into copywriting at an entry-level position?" Many of the jobs listed on monster or career builder are for ppl who have 3 to 5 years experience. I need to learn how to do it first before I apply to anything like that.
The lady Jannell suggested taking on ProBono work to gain experience; but that' just not the way I work. I need to see how it's done, get my hand on a few and play with it. Then give it a shot.
I am hoping to maybe find something...secretarial..at an ad agency here in the city with a view towards getting into copy writing.
They are pretty high in demand - medical, mortgage, and other businesses are looking for them.
CNET is looking for one right now..but they need years of experience and I think it's a Senior Copywriter/editor position.
I did look at them to see if they had any positions for secretarial and they DO. but I think it's a little out of my scope to work with...but I could give it a shot I suppose.

Anyways, I am going home tomorrow to see the folks, who will badger me all about getting a job. So I am taking all that info I found with me so they'll have a little better idea of what I am looking at, shooting towards.

My current "at home" project is to make a collage for the apartment out of pics from gardening magazines. This place is DEAD boring! Since they won't let us put anything on the walls..but I figure if we put it on paper we could tape them up; no holes in the walls. And it will give us a little spring and color.

I know, I have no pictures! I'll see if I can't get some, scan them in to the laptop and bring them back up. I don't have any recent pictures of myself...which isn't too surprising considering I HATE having my picture taken.
I'll see what I can find.

See you peeps later!
