A New Year


2012 has been and gone, and guess what, The world didn't end!

Although it wasn't my favourite year with alot of upset and bad luck there still have been some good times, like May MCM Expo, My 18th Birthday and Christmas was probably one of the best.

I am going to make this short and sweet.

A new Year so I plan to achievem more this year, like try and pursue a career in Veterinary Nursing, I plan to take my sister to her first Expo this year well lets just say I have alot of plans for this year and I plan to to them all ;]

Emergency! & Hyper Japan News ;3


Wow, the past few weeks have been a none stop rollercoster ride ;O

Well for starters, Me and the family had booked a nice Holiday in Wales for August 25th and we had all been looking forward to it for months, so anyway, the week before we go is usually stressful because we have to pack for all 7 of us and get some shopping in and buy some extra things like walking boots etc. So that is always a mad rush, but then, the Wednesday before we were suposed to leave for Wales my older brother was rushed into Hospital with a Pneumothorax (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pneumothorax) So My mum is Freaking out (Even though he is okay, and not in pain or anything) and he was told that he should Hopefully be fine and out by Friday, so Friday came and he was told that he cant leave yet because there is too much air in the space between his lung and the rib cage, so he stayed over night again after being told he should be okay to leave on Saturday and yet again he was let down, after about 2 wek in the hospital he has now been dicharged after having had surgery to sew up the hole in the lung.

So all of this has caused alot of stress, tension and worry with everyone in the family.

So yeah our Holiday in Wales has been canceled but luckily the owner of the cottage understood our situation and is going to let us return for free at the begining of November, WOO for Winter Holiday! XD

So we went to our aunts for the week so at least we got some kind of holiday. She took us shopping and we spent hours in the Disney shop which really brightened up my mood!
All I bought was a little Mulan Mug (Mulan is one of my fave Disney movies)

but now I have tons of Christmas pressent Idea's, it looks like most of my friends and family will be getting a very Disney themed Christmas. ^^

But things are better now and I feel alot better.

Everything has calmed down now, and as a Thankyou for all my help, my parents are going to help fund my next Cosplay which is Paddra Nsu-Yeul from Final Fantasy XIII-2 and I might be able to go to Hyper Japan Christmas this November! So I hope I can go and I am super excited for it!

Me and a friend have decided to apply to Volunteer for the Hyper japan Sunday, we might not get picked but it would be great if we were! I plan to Cosplay as Serah Farron from Final Fantasy XIII again on the Sunday (Haha that weekend is very Final Fantasy Oriented for me XD)

She hopes to get a new cosplay for one of the days, I have been helping her find some Lolita's and there is this one Lolita I have fallen in love with, its very simple but I just love it! Me thinks Imma gonna ask Santa for it this year XDD



But I absolutely LOVE it and if I didnt already have Cosplay plans for Hyper Japan then I would probably pick this, but if my Cosplay like seriously fails by November then this Dress is my back up plan ;3

Other news? Well ive made plans to go see Silent Hill: Revelation 3D with a friend on Halloween, I am seriously looking forward to that since Silent Hill is my latest obsession and I adore the series even if it makes me feel frightened for my life after playing one of the games or watching the movie XD And also because I havent seen my friend for a little over 6 months so it would be great to catch up with her again!

I also plan to see another friend in either October or February, I am seeing her at Hyper Japan anyway but I plan to go up to where she now lives to visit her for a weekend or more, so whenever that happens I am looking forward to it, and she is also welcome down here (Which is we do Hyper Japan then its likely she will be coming down here and then we go up to London together)

So yeah! Good news, Bad news, ALOT of things to list so I havent listed all of it, just the main points really ;3
But I am much happier now, things are finally starting to look up!

A Little bit of Everything!


So basically, I havent been online an awful lot since I got my PS3, So my bad ^^;

Well anyway, yeah... I got a PS3!!!!
It came with Uncharted 3 which I completed in 3 days xD
So I also bought Final Fantasy XIII-2, Assassins Creed II Game of the Year Edition (Which comes with AC 1) and Uncharted 2 which is very near completion ^^;

I also managed to buy myself, Ghost in the Shell: Innocence which I have been looking for EVERYWHERE! So that was a Bonus.

So enough about what I bought... I am now going to move onto the day after my Birthday which was my friends leaving do.
We all went to Wetherspoons and had quite a big turn out! We even gained a couple of drunk guys who stuck with us for an hour or so xD


^
This is the begining of the night...

And this is the end...

LOL Just kidding xDD
That was actually near the begining ^^; (Sorry cba to rotate the images xD)

But It was a really nice night and I think everyone loved it :D

This pic was taken at the end of the night though...
v



In about the space of a half hour the table looked like this (Okay with a couple of glasses left from the people before us xDD)

So yeah it was a goooood night ^^

Birthday Related Stuff - Frankie & Benny's!


Had a fantabulous night last night!
I went to Frankie & Benny's for an early Birthday celebration (My Dad is going to be away for my Birthday this year so we decided to have the Birthday dinner early)
I absolutley loved it! But I must say, I dont think I will be able to eat anything again until the weekend, I was just so full by the end of the night that I couldent even swallow the thought of finishing my Cocktail!

But The food was fantastic and the waitress told us that the portion sizes in Frankie & Benny's is smaller than what they would have been in America :O

I had Garlic bread and a share platter of everything for starter (Obviously shared it, I could never eat it all myself XD)
The had BBQ Chicken & Ribs which I didnt finish because it was enormous! And then for Desert I ordered a Chocolate Fudge Brownie which was brought out with a candle on and everyone sang Happy Birthday to me, Oh boy did I feel special! XD

It was a brilliant night and I am now sad that its over X'O

My Birthday Celebrations on my actual Birthday will consist of a blockbuster movie and ordering Pizza XD
An Ideal night in, In my opinion!

I am also going to be getting my PS3 Eearly since my Dad is going away and I am hopeless at setting up things ^^;
But I am majorely excited! If they have got me the bundle pack that I think they got me then It looks like Uncharted 3 is going to be my first EVER PS3 game! (Which is great because I love the series sooooo much)

And I think thats all I have to say on the matter, I think my next post will either be after I get the PS3 or actually on my Birthday ^^

Exactly as the title says!

This is the first time since I was 12 that I have been genuinely excited for my Birthday!
Possibly because I know what I am getting this year, as PS3 which I have been dying to get ever since it came out 5 or so years ago xP

So yeah, thats something worth getting excited about in my opinion, But I am also kind of sad that I am going to be 18. Since its apparently the mark of adult hood and I find it hard to think of letting go of my childhood, Maybe im just being silly but I hate the thought of having to get a job and actually get serious about my life. Is it bad the I still have no career goals?
I have just finished my second year of college and I have no clue as to what I should do next! I am being told by my parents to do an apprenticeship... But in what?
So these are all my worries about becoming 18, its all really stupid but to me they are major issues.

But oh well, there are better aspects to be coming 18! I will be able to drink legally, I will be able to vote, heck, I can do what I want! Mmmkay maybe not EVERYTHING I want but I most definately will have more freedom which I supose I am kind of looking forward to ^^

But even though I am going to be 18 in just over a week, it still doesnt stop my childish ways! From watching Disney to playing video games and having a somewhat childish mentality xD
It doesnt bother me, why change just because it is expected of me? I am my own person and nothing will change that ^^;

Also... I am suffering from nasty sunburn D:
It really brings down my mood, I put after sun on about 15 times today (no exageration) and its still really sore and red D';
