I still stop by live journal now and then but I haven't had the urge to post. I'm usually on twitter, writing fleeting stuff.
I graduated farmingdale with my bachelors, finally, and I'm looking for a new job soon. I'm still with Disney, and I love Disney so I may just look to transfer somewhere. It's easy being at the store, funny enough, just because I've been there so long. I hit my three years in August and that is a big deal. I handle visual and training now, in fact I should be asleep because I train early tomorrow but I felt compelled to write.
Since I wrote an entry, my grandmothers both died...sad it took me this long to write and even note that...
It looks like I'm moving in a couple of months. David and I are going to have our own apartment, but I just have to be interviewed by the coop board, so here's to that. I feel like it'll work out, it's a lovely place in Rego Park just a block from the R/M
Funny enough, David now works with me! we hit 10 years in September and will be going to Disney World and staying at the grand floridian. Incidentally, that was also when some cast mates planned to go and so we became one big group! It'll be a lot of fun, I love these guys.
In a few weeks I'll be heading out to San Diego for SDCC! I was lucky enough to grab tickets through a friend. I'm staying with a close friend and her family who are like bending over backwards to take care of me. I stayed with them in April before bitecon and they were just...amazing. Her mom treated me to san diego zoo, and my friend's brother, her and I were just having so much fun and her mom kept saying it was like she had another daughter. Even their cat was overly affectionate with me. SO yeah, I'm super duper excited to like see my friend again and chill with her family. I WISH I could visit them all the time.
For SDCC I'm staying with Victoria and some girls who use to work at my job who moved to LA. It'll be a fun room, as everyone is chill and honest.
I'm also going to NYCC this year! And howlercon..and bitecon... fuck guys I love teen wolf, leave me alone!
Uhm... I don't know what else is going on. I'm gonna cosplay at both SDCC and NYCC. Specifically Ms. Marvel (kamala kahn) and Anna (coronation dress).
aaanndd that's it i guess. will make that attempt to write more often.
SO OTAKON HAPPENED
[H E R E ] are some pictures. Not complete as SO MANY ASSCREED PICTURES NEED TO BE UPLOADED PROPERLY.
Favs under the cut as always.
( It was sooo hot. )
Thurs & Friday night I was... so drunk. So. DRUNK. Saturday I woke up feeling like death, that wasn't exciting at all. I had so much fun being gay assassin's with Amanda tho!
I just got back from my second interview with diiiisney! Yup that is who i had last week and they HIRED me! ( on the spot too!) see ya at Time Square! i am just so incredibly happy!
I actually snagged an interview with Apple buuuut that will have to be canceled me thinks.
Also i think i will stay at sears for now and help out when they need me. I hate the customers but i think helping out will be good. And exxxtra money.
Well i sure am on cloud 9 :) i saw harry potter today with vick before my interview and cried AGAIN so i was a bit afraid XD i looked like a mess ahaha. But apparently i am a good sales person! Who'd a thunk it?!

The hotel was really awesome and pretty. Apparently we aren't kicked out (I don't know how, did we all really spend all that money? I WANT MY CHOCOLATE DIPPED STRAWBERRIES). The con was also pretty good though I didn't really do anything with it aside from hosting a panel and the masquerade. Tara was awesome enough to let us help her out with her skit. I think it came out really good, and they got a judges award for it! I've never seen Katsu's judging system and was shocked at how rigid it was.
I spent more than I wanted to on more figures ahhaah... I'm so sad, I have a problem.
To everyone I saw, I had a great time with you! Too many to list and I'm not feeling the best but you know who you are and guuhh just the best crowd to have spend the con with! Even if I was all over the place.
Anyway here are some pictures, as usual the rest can be found in my album [ H E R E ]
Some of my favorites are under the cut.
( Katsu )
this is our, "geass" face
This is brought to you by the cosplay judges, Randy, Simon and Paula and Paula's ho.
( oh what a day. )
More can be found here.
For those of you not familiar with what's going on, here's a story in pictures by Jin (a Philippino cosplayer) [ H E R E ]. Maybe someone most of you can relate to more?
I hope everyone will be okay and it won't get worse than what's happening.
Ummm so NYAF happened? The con itself wasn't spectacular but I had a ton of fun with my friends. Con report? What's to report?
Didn't see the con, skiiiit the whole time
CURRY ARC FOREVER! Taking pictures, going to Go Go Curry and then HSM times.
Chillaxing the whole time. Actually saw some of the con. Then went out to dinner
Also, Yume was a joke. L WAS ROBBED. HIM AND THE ICE CREAM SHOULD'VE WON.
lol this is the shortest con report but let me say this... to everyone I saw this weekend, even for a little bit I loved being with you and I hope we can see each other a lot more (especially outside of cons) which I do with most of you anyway.
PICTURES CAN BE FOUND HERE! Yes they were stolen from sleepy_syusuke and I uploaded some of them...
As usual here are my favs ( Read more... )
Recently I was reminded of you in an article about Chinese adoptees (yes I know you're Taiwanese but I was reminded). After our last exchange how I "didn't get it" and was "too harsh and critical" I actually didn't care to read your blog any longer. You rehashed the same issues and I couldn't believe how you accused me of the one who "didn't get it". I remembered though, you were on your way to return to Taiwan and meet your birth family face to face. I read your entries and even though we have different views on adoption, I'm glad you were to make it over there and see for yourself. I hope it makes your life a little easier to live and it may takes years to organize exactly how you feel about what took place but... good luck.
Reading all your entries didn't make me change my mind about how I feel and I doubt as many reunited stories I read it ever will. We have different circumstances of adoption, and our lives are different. I am thankful for my adoption, now I am. I wasn't when I was younger but I was a selfish preteen who didn't understand the importance of a warm bed and hot meal with a roof over my head. I have a wonderful life with wonderful friends and a wonderful future ahead of me. I hope you don't continue to think those who are happy with life as an adoptee as "delusional" or still in the "adoption fog" because that's just ignorant and close minded.
So good luck on your next chapter in your life.
SPECIAL THANKS: To all those who cam to my panel to support me! That meant SO very much to me and... GAH SO HAPPY! Never did I expect a turn out like that one where they turned people away. I loved how nice the audience was and... YOUUU GUYYYYYS. Also more thanks to tech support who was so nice and helpful XD; I was so nervous and they gave me encouraging words!
( SHOUT OUT TO MY PEEPS )
Even though I didn't take many...

I've been travelin
on this road to long
Just trying to find
my way back home
The old me
is dead and gone
dead and gone
On the ride home I just turned and looked to Vicky when this song came on (being stuck in Stanen Island traffic for 1hr) and we both agreed that was our song for the con.
Everything was everywhere. If they thought I was going to walk across the way to get to another part of the con they thought wrong. I felt like the con was everywhere but no where, it was just too confusing.
Food, driving to get food sucked. Yes there was food inside of the con and honestly it was well priced. However, not everyone eats the same thing. More of a variety would be nice and useful.
Also, all food places shutting down at 11pm? Not cool. Noooot cool. at 12am it'd be nice when we have 4 more hours of work a head of us. Sorry, even living in Farmingdale where pretty much everything was a small business I could still order food at 2am.
Over all feeling: Better than Anime Boston, maybe because it was closer to home, but not by much. If they stay at this venue I won't return.
Find some pictures here.
- Getting a ShamWOW
- Driving to my first convention ever and making it there alive!
- Having great roomates who were mindful of each other and paid~ (doorknocker_dog, elf_1half, __kaze__, sleepy_syusuke, rhapsody_in_rue and her boyfriend, and Miranda (our room/line Ninja))
- Cooosplay group with David and Natasha. Pretty much being ourselves.
- Getting a room with a view! FINALLY!
- lololol not standing in line for the masquerade. Panelist FTW!
- Running the panel AniMyu & Prince of Tennis. Learned a lot more like doing a panel a few hours beforehand is not a good idea. I really had no choice and was pretty dead... better next time!
- Haaaaanging out with everyone. Seeing people, even for a brief second, was awesome. I know we were all busy and like "GAH MUST DO THIS"
- Eating meals. Keeping them down was another story, but at least I ate them!
- Arriving home. Guh.
- DAT. CON.
- Cosplay? Wut? Did anyone try? This refers to the ones I DIDN'T know. Really, saw no surprises. EXCEPT THAT PETSHOP OF HORRORS DUO. Other than that...
- CosPlot... what. the. fuck. Was there any point to that?
- Vomiting after every meal for two days. Don't know how I did not get dehydrated.
- Elevators! The little shits that thought "lololol LETS PRESS EVERY BUTTON IN THE ELEVATOR." Next year I'm investing in a jet pack or something.
- Taking 16 flights of stairs to get to the room.
- DRIVING HOME FROM DAT CON. Srsly. Rain marking the end of the world? Not fun. GETTING A FLAT TIRE 30 MINUTES FROM HOME? ABOUT TO DIE. Without that random guy who helped us we'd still be in Long Island City.
- Dealers room having like... nothing.
- MASQUERADE! Save for a few skits... what WAS that? This isn't animenext you know! (zing)
- This is my 23rd convention......... AND I GET CONFLU. FIRST EVER. Got a bad cold. Not a happy camper. Not with AnimeNEXT in two weeks D:
- After going to AnimeBoston for 6 years I think it's my time to stop. Unless they get a freakin' amazing guest I just can't push myself to go anymore. I really sat and asked myself; "So why am I going?" I got nothing =/
ANYWAY. I know what you want... Con pictures can be found here!
But here are a couple of my favorites:
