This is how our days off look like. Just chilling in bed, eating ice cream or drinking beer and just slack around. These are some of my favorite moments in life.
This might sound lazy, but its not. We’re both dead tired most of the time and we’re always running around and doing things, that I really cannot remember the last time we actually had a day all to ourselves without having to share time with anyone else.
Believe it or not, Summer is here! Yup, I don’t thing Spring even had a chance. One day it was gloomy and cold, then it was sunny and hot.
I’m already advancing on many of my goals for this year, but on some I’m way behind. For example, I missed all my classes at university so I need to get everything from my friends. I also have to hurry since finals are coming. I’m broke and pay day is far away (10 more days to go; yup that sad), so my savings plan kinda went out the window.
But on others I’m doing good. I finished Spring cleaning. Everything that wasn’t used was boxed away under the bed, everything that wasn’t needed or used in years was thrown away and I’m still thinking when I should handle my wardrobe.
So, I’m cleaning up my life starting with my living space. Believe it or not, that’s a good way to start. Small steps, small steps..
I made a list for May. It’s small, realistic and very doable.
- Pay my university taxes.
- Pay off the bills.
- University stuff. Finals are coming, brace yourself.
- Perfect legs! I need to take out the lawn mower ^0^*
- Bye Bye Tummy! (Meaning no more soda, fat foods and junk food, starting tomorrow)
- Finish my Japanese project. (I found the perfect learning “thing” for a lazy bum like me)
- Finish the tulips needlepoint!
- Finish two books.
- Shoes, tee’s and summer stuff.
- Have fun in team building and take lots of photos.
Been there, done that. Waiting for a real convention to come!
I’ve never been so disappointed in my life. I was so excited regarding this convention, I thought that it will be something considering the amount of publicity it was done for it but it wasn’t.
I bought my tickets in December and they weren’t even tickets for the first day, they were tickets for the second day of the event. Go figure, I was first from 400 people to buy them and they couldn’t send me tickets for the first day, yet when the first day of the convention came you could find tickets for sale in from of the building. At first I didn’t thought that it will matter that much but it did.
On the second day all the merchandise, the good one I mean, was sold out. The remaining merchandise was either deteriorated, poor quality or just expensive. I mean, the pictures they put on the official site were far from reality. I could’ve found better plushies in a second hand shop.
The so called Japan Wing was a major let down!
I was expecting to buy some manga’s, maybe a plushie. Something nice, like the last year when I went home with a Chopper plushie and a notebook with Totoro.
Instead all that I bought were 2 posters (from One Piece, one of them was ripped but for 5 Ron a piece it didn’t matter) a bookmark (One Piece again), which was fan made and a t-shirt with Mo&Foca from Robotzi, which was probably the best thing there. And just to clarify things, the t-shirt was for Johnny.
Now, I know most people will criticize me for focusing only on the material side and they will probably say that this convention was for fans to meet and have fun, even to meet celebrities and such.
I know that. I know many people go there to hang out and just enjoy their fandom, but I’m more of the loner type when it comes to fandoms. I like to enjoy a thing but not necessarily share my thoughts and hang out with other people.
There was also an incident that made me laugh: when I was looking for a poster to buy so I wouln’t leave empty handed, I heard a girl saying to her brother “If you see a poster with Luffy just grab it!“. I was like “Really now, I’m going to have to fight with a 12 year old for a poster“.
There were and nice things, the artists that sold their sketches, the kids running around in costumes, the red carpet at the entry, the food and the hope that on the next convention people will actually bring more merchandise!!!
Routine can make one feel tired. The days pass so quickly and so uninteresting that it makes me feel like I’m wasting time rather than being productive.
But its a miracle what a little change in the daily routine can do to one spirits.
Just by leaving one hour earlier and going to the park before work, by visiting a friend during my day off, even reading a book or two. I really do feel much more refreshed and I’m in a better mood than before.
I must admit the weather was really nice and it was a shame not to go out for a walk. Even if I was by myself. I guess being alone doesn’t bother me at all, especially on a lovely early Spring morning.
Yes I do consider that Spring is here. I can actually smell it!
What can I say, when Spring will come in full force all the parks will be full with people so I should enjoy them and their solitude as much as I can.
After that I know for sure that everybody will come out and the parks will be much to full for my liking.
And yet, even staying indoors has it perks when you have a cat.
