\\ Been busy the past few days trying to figure out my schedule for the summer, SO I JUST REALIZED IT'S BEEN AWHILE SINCE I LAST POSTED! Sorry!

\\ I have been playing a lot of The Sims 3 since I just got the new Generations expansion. I get crazy obsessed with this game, haha.

\\ I have been trying to write but I think I have writers block or something. Well, not exactly writers block, because I can write. It's just I HATE EVERY FREAKIN' THING I MANAGE TO TYPE!

\\ So this weekend I'm going to Cincy to see a Reds Game. It's gonna be me, Sabrina & Jamil, Sarah, her husband Justin, and two of their kids. So yeah, I'm kinda like the odd man out but it was my idea in the first place SO I REFUSE TO FEEL AWKWARD!

\\ So New York with Laurel is totally on. We plan to leave August 13th and take the train. We hope to have between 3 and 5 full days there. Any ideas for what we should do?

\\ CHECK OUT MY ICON!!!!! I love it so ridiculously much.

|| The Wedding is over! OMG! i die

|| The wedding was beautiful and perfect, now let me explain my day to you all.

8 am - Wake Up, shower, do hair, make up, sew belt loop on dress, get dressed
9:20 - Leave, drive to church, eat a nutrigrain bar in car
9:55 - Arrive at Church
10 - Melissa and Hannah (bridesmaid and maid of honor respectively) ask if I can drive to Sabrina's mother's house to get the flower girl flowers that were left in the fridge. It's a half hour drive each way. The wedding starts at 11.
10:05 - I leave church and speed all the way across town
10:55 - I arrive back at church with flowers. First thing Erin says when I walk in the church, "About time! Where were you? I've had to do everything myself!" To which I reply that I had to go get the flowers (that are obviously in my hand). She rolls her eyes
11 - Wedding. So beautiful. I almost cried
11:30 - Leave church (again) and drive to reception site
12:00 - Find out I've been stuck with Erin and her friend (loser friend, it needs to be said) Tyler at a table. Luckily there are also two strangers I can talk to as well. I have my first glass of wine
12:30 - Sabrina and Jamil Arrive. They announce arrival of special guest that we have been told about since March. No one knows who this is except Sabrina and Jamil and their parents and Hannah. The guest? Abraham Lincoln. They brought in an impersonator. He gave a speech. It was epic.
1:00 - We eat. It was yummy. I have my second glass of wine.
1:45 - Cake. It was also yummy. I switch to coke.
2:00 - Toasts and speeches. I have my third glass of wine.
2:15 - First dance. Austen leaves to get in to Gorilla suit. Comes back as a gorilla in a tux jacket. I am not even joking. The reception gets even more epic when inflatables are thrown on to the dance floor. These include a bass, a dinosaur, a moose head, and a cooked turkey inflatables. We all proceed to act stupid and play 'Keep off the floor' with the inflatable turkey.
3:00ish - Becca and Hannah are thanking me for 'saving the wedding' or at least Sabrina's sanity that morning. I ask if Erin knew what I was doing. They say yes she did. I get pissed off. I have my fourth glass of wine.
3:10ish - I find Erin complaining about me not helping her in the church that morning to Sarah, who had been late to the wedding herself helping to set up the reception area and decorate the wedding cake. I snap at Erin "I was getting the flowers. You know that. It was thirty minutes to Dr. Lawler's house and then thirty minutes back! I managed to do it in 50, counting the time it took to find the flowers in the house!. I was there at 9:55, you didn't show up until 10:20, 20 minutes later than Sabrina asked you and you've been complaining about not getting to sleep in on a Saturday, so please stop acting so put upon and lying to people!" Erin gets pissy and storms off. Sarah rolls her eyes and asks me if I'm okay and says not to take Erin seriously because they all know I've done a lot more for Sabrina and for the wedding than Erin has.
3:20ish - I switch to water and then dance with Austen (still in the gorilla suit), and Daisuke (who's wearing a yukata). Erin glares at me cause Daisuke is her ex. (which might be why I danced with him)
3:40ish - Seth, Chase, and Austen seranade Sabrina and Jamil to the tune of 80's pop hit, that I can not for the life of me remember now.
3:50 - Bouqet gets tossed. Everyone unmarried (male, female, divorced, widowed whatever) has to try and catch as per Sabrina's order. Jamil's dad catches it.
4 - I leave to go home.

||In short, it was pretty much the greatest wedding I've ever been to. Erin and her self-centeredness non-withstanding. I don't know what the hell Erin's problems are but she's been getting worse and worse. Everyone has noticed. Sabrina said at her bachelorette's party that she wished she hadn't made Erin an usher and had made Sarah one instead. All Erin cares about is herself. She had the audacity to snap at Sabrina at Sabrina's reception for telling someone that Erin was vegan. She was telling Jamil's dad, who is also vegan. Erin said that Sabrina shouldn't be telling her business.

||Ugh. I've already started distancing myself from Erin because it's just not worth it anymore. I kind of can't wait for her to be gone.

|| Now, art! I haven't drawn in ages but I doodled these two things while waiting for my mom one day. They aren't very good and I drew them in a tiny 4 inch by 2 inch note book and then took photos with my phone, but still, ART!
Cut for your convience )

|| Finally, I have a new mix up at [livejournal.com profile] robbing_banks. It's a mix for Moriarty from Sherlock BBC.

Guess who's going to be spending six weeks in Japan this summer? That's right, ME!

I'm doing a study tour with my university, I'M SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!!!

Here's a link to what the tour's about if you're interested: Clickie!

It's going to be so amazing!!!!! A friend of mine is going for the first part of the trip (it's a trip split in to two parts, three weeks touring Japan on the Rail system, three weeks with a family in Yatsushiro), so that will be awesome!

The last time I was in Japan I was by myself and it was only for two weeks so this is going to be SO MUCH BETTER and the last time was already FANTASTIC.

OMG! JAPAN!!!!

/uncontrollable excitement

So for two years I had a T-Mobile Side-Kick, and I loved that phone, but lately it had started getting worn down and some of the buttons stopped working. I was eligible for an upgrade so I got a new phone

I FUCKING LOVE MY NEW PHONE!

It's a MyTouch Slide 3G. It's so red and shiny and pretty and SHINY! Actually here's a picture:


I can get Apps on this thing, awesome! OMG Angry Birds might be the best thing evah.

I'm still getting used to the phone though. I managed to send my Besty three blank txts in a row, haha.

It's been a pretty good few days, you know, when it's not sucking

♥ A couple months ago I posted about winning free tickets to a Maroon 5 concert and I took my BFF Erin. Well on Monday Erin won free tickets to a Michael Franti and Spearhead concert. The concert was a lot of fun, even if I did have to leave early because I had a test the next day. Plus the bartender gave me a free drink!

♥ I got a 94% on my Japanese Culture test. I would probably have gotten higher but I missed the three days right before the test

♥  I don't think I totally bomb my Chinese Culture test! Well, I probably wrangled a B at any rate.

♥ History of Japanese Painting is being offered next semester. Woot!

♥ My Jaw is feeling better.

♥ I got a 90% on my Anthropological Theory paper (okay I'm kinda pissed because it was an A+ paper, but whatever) and a 95% on my Chinese Culture paper.

♥ I've actually managed to work on some fics. I'm halfway done with the sequel to Bail. I'll also be ready to post my Chrome FST in the next couple of days.

♥ Anthropology School is offering a course on the Anthropology of Tourism. Sounds Fun!

♥ Me and my dad have begun planning our trip to D.C. in January. (Planning trips is so much fun for me)

I think that's everything.

Went to the mall with my mom today after my chiropractor appointment. He cracked my back so much. It was painful ;_;

At the mall my mom bought me some super cute booots that I'm gonna wear for my TYL!Chrome cosplay. I also bought a really pretty indigo shirt that's perfect for it.

Right now I have all the most expensive parts of the cosplay; Suit, Shirt, Boots. I still need the eyepatch and mist ring as well as a tie. I want to have her trident as well but the ones you can buy are really expensive however I don't think I can make one. My artistic talents fall more in the singing/painting categories rather than woodworking or something. I've decided to die my hair instead of buying a wig. All of the wigs are just so purple and I see Chrome's hair as being more black with a purple sheen. My hair is long enough too with the proper kind of bangs so this seems like the best choice (cheaper too).

 I think I might buy a broach or a tie tack to go with the tie. Give it more of a funky feel to go with the boots.

These are the boots BTW:

I figure Chrome would outgrow the military style boots at some point. (Plus I just fuckng love these boots)

I also got a super cute skirt that has nothing to do with my costume. The skirt is a little too big but it was a final sale item so it as super cheap. I'll have to alter it but that won't be too hard. I'm pretty handy with a needle and thread.

Sorry I haven't updated before now (except that one drunk post, sorry to my f-list for that, haha). So much has gone on this week.

1. School started back, and my classes are amazing! However I'll have about 100-150 pages a week of reading altogether and I have 21 papers for a total of about 90 pages this semester. Luckily I kick ass at papers. This does however mean I might not being doing much recreational writing.

2. Due to my crazy workload for school I've decided not to get a job and just babysit for extra cash.

3. I won a contest for two free tickets to the Maroon 5 concert, a very popular American band. The concert was amazing. Miggs, V.V. Brown, and Kris Allen were the opening acts and they were all so good. I took my best friend to the concert because her 21st birthday was friday.

4. Friday night was excellent, but I do not have pictures :( my friend in charge of photos for the night forgot her camera (she sucks). I had six drinks and got very drunk. I also got a terrible blister on my toe from my awesome shoes, it hurts~ We went to a place called Cheapside for dinner, where I ended up consuming half the drinks bought for Erin (the birthday girl). After that we went to a club called The Soundbar. It's a gay club but there's a lot of straight people too. We danced and drink some more and then (cause we were all drunk except Laurel) we collasped on some couches to try and sober up. I ended up posting that strange entry, plus I texted two people and I posted a bunch of funny things on facebook. I guess it's not always good that my cell phone gets the internet. We shut the place down around 3 in the morning and I ended up staying at Erin's place cause it was only 2 minutes away and my house was about 25.

5. Through some sort of miracle I got out of Jury Duty. They said the trial I had been called for had been settled.

This has been one of the greatest weeks ever.
