Rainy days.

 

Montreal <3



HI. I haven't written in awhile, mostly because a bunch of stuff has happened in the past week, but everything's getting better now.
My dad quit his job last week. His boss is an asshole and was treating my dad like shit. I was pretty scared, but my dad seems to have his head in the right place, so all I can really do is sit back and believe he knows what he's doing. He's strong.
Grey Cup was last weekend. No idea who won, I don't really care. But people were over, and it was nice. Got a little high, ate way too much. Always fun.
Now, I'm really excited because, I'm going to Montreal in TEN DAYS. I booked my train ticket today, made sure I still have reservations at the hotel I booked. Now I just need to pack and I'm good to go! I can't wait. It's going to be so much fun.
My friends 18th birthday is the day before I get there, so you know we'll spend the weekend in a club, drunk as fuck. It's going to be great. Do a little shopping, no big deal. My hotel's a street away from St Catherines so you know I'll be spending some money. Going to get my nose pierced, both sides, awyee.


I'm thinking of getting my nape pierced this weekend, although I'm not too sure on it. I want it, I just don't know if I should be spending the money right now.
Payday's on Thursday, so we'll see :D

Anyways, 10 days.
I have to go get ready for work, but I'll be sure to keep you posted!

NU2

So, I'm a little late in writing about this but: AHHH.
The NU2 Anime Convention was this past weekend, Nov 18-20th and it was unbelievable! It was overwhelming, and just, wow. I couldn't/didn't take any pictures, mostly because I was incredibly nervous about the whole thing and felt a little awkward going up and asking people for pictures (haha). Also, my cosplay outfit didn't come in, in time, which is fine, because I'll have it for the next one!
It was really nice being able to see that so many other people are into it as well. It was nice, because for once in a long time, I didn't feel out of place or anything. Seeing all these people dressed up as characters they enjoy and cherish, was heart warming.
Although I'm disappointed I wasn't able to participate in the cosplay portion of the convention, it was still wonderful seeing almost everyone dressed up.
I also spent wayyy too much, but it isn't something I regret :3 The one in February is looking well. My friends and I are supposed to be going - I'll be dressed up, and taking pictures for that one. I'm ubber excited.

Also, 19 days until Montreal, YAY.

Omega Park

Yesterday (November 13), my best friend and I took a trip down to Omega Park.
It was absolutely beautiful. The animals were all so precious and I honestly wanted to take them all home with me. It was quite ridiculous. Here's some of the shots I managed to take.
























I was amazed by the place, and how it all came together. It was nice to get out of the city, away from all the noise, the people, the drama. I'm happy I went, and can't wait to go again. It was such a lovely place.

:D


Sixteen days until the convention.
Wig, shoes and outfit ordered and on their way here! So excited. Not only will it be my first convention, it'll be my first time dressing up in Cosplay. I used to think it was kind of funny, and never imagined I'd do it, but there's something nice about dressing up as an Anime character and being a nerd for a day :)
I'm going as Sailor Mars, while my other friends are going as Sailor Moon, Sailor Jupiter and of course Tuxedo Mask. It's going to be an interesting day to say the least, lots of pictures and fun moments. It's real exciting, I almost want it to be tomorrow ;D It's a nice way to detach myself from the real world for a bit, and just focus on what's important and the people who are important. Besides, it'll be nice to be surrounded by people who love Anime just as much as I do.
It's funny that I'm going as Sailor Moon, since I much rather enjoy Pokemon, hands down. But Sailor Moon is one that everyone loves, a common ground, and it's fairly simple, too. It's nice knowing my friends are willing to get dressed up and come out with me. It'll be great.
I'm sick as a dog at the moment, so I'm going to go finish my shows and sleep some.
Have a good night.

Photoshop


Pumpkin, edited.













                I went looking for my Photoshop software today, because last night I took some pretty cool pictures that I wanted to mess around with.
However, I can't seem to find it, so I downloaded this low-quality one off the internet, and it actually does a decent job.
I'm obviously not looking for anything too professional at the moment, because I'm still getting used to it, but it's a lot of fun to play with pictures and see what looks good and what works with each other. I'm happy I got the day yesterday to go out and do a bunch of things, take loads of pictures. However, the photo-shoot didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted, but that's okay. It is what it is and you learn to go with the flow.
I'm ubber excited to get some new lenses. Hopefully I can focus on that, once I pay my credit card and my father back, woop. But for now, I'm just admiring the freedom behind taking pictures. It was real nice to be able to get out of the house and walk around. Fall is so pretty, and I'm even excited for some winter shots. Hopefully I'll have some good enough lenses that I can take some action shots.
Life is good.
