Chi's dress is coming along surely and somewhat slowly, only because I have more than enough time to finish it, therefore I have no excuse for allowing any mistakes to fly. For example, third time is the charm, because I redid her bodice twice before I got it perfect on the third. The first try consisted of a pattern I had bought, but that didn't work out very well and it was messing up my pleating. The second try consisted of a pattern I drafted myself, but for some unknown, crazy reason, I had a major brain malfunction and though I measured out all the pleats and the hems and they were perfect, I didn't measure the two ends of the fabric that get laced together in the front. One ended up being a half inch longer than the other. :X I normally don't make such an oversight, but I think I was just so into making the pleats perfect, that I overlooked it. Sooo, the third time, I reused my drafted pattern and measured everything once, twice, three times over. It is perrrrfect.

I'm so used to rushing before a con, that when I messed up the second time, I thought "crap! I don't have time to redo this! I'll just have to hope nobody notices and maybe redo it sometime after the con so I can enter it in a costume contest!" Then I remembered that its April, and the con isn't until September, and that I had more than enough time to redo the pleated bodice once more (cuz at this point, I was down to the last bit of fabric), so I tossed the second version and whipped up the third that very afternoon.

Ah. It's so nice to actually have a lot of time to sew. No moar cons in May to rush for! Yaaay. This means that Chi is now almost completely done. All that remains is the beading, which I am going to work on gradually from now until June-ish, because I can't afford to buy all the beads in a single batch, so I have to spread the purchases out over a few weeks. :X And then lastly, the wig + Chi-ears. I'll be ordering the wig either late June or early July, because I'm planning on getting it from a store in Japan that no longer ships overseas due to the economy. However, I happen to have a friend studying abroad in Japan that won't be coming home until August, so I'm just going to have him order it. =D Yaaay! I knew my friends would come in handy someday. xD

I start my vacation today. Kev and I are going to Busch Gardens VA at the end of the week. Finally, I get a little R&R. I was beginning to go crazy. @_@

Update: I just registered for the pre-req class, Medical Keyboarding. Lawl. xD Joke. "Learn to type by touch, 32 words a minute..." I don't think this class should be too hard. o.O Sucks that I'll have to waste gas on it 'cuz the online class was all filled up. =( Oh weeells.

I'm sure I can work it around the Bank. Even if I don't work tuesday/thursdays at all, I'll still hit 30 hours. Since the class starts at 1:30, I can work at least 8:30 to 12:30 pm on those days.

After that, I can take the Pharmacy Tech class over the summer, take the test, and become certified. Yay!

So, we went to see Cloverfield tonight and it was really good. A lot of people are complaining because they feel ripped off with the ending since it didn't explain anything. Once again, people show how stupid they are, completely missing the point of the movie. :/ It wasn't SUPPOSED to explain anything; that was the whole POINT. It was all about the fear of the unknown, VERY Lovecraftian. I love things like this. I loved King's "The Mist," because the short story didn't explain a single thing about the monsters that were attacking and why they were attacking. It just makes it seem more REAL. It bugged me that people were complaining. If that actually happened in real life, there would be no little man sitting there telling you every exact detail about the monster and its purpose. :/ It would be exactly like how it was portrayed in the movie; chaos and the fear of NOT knowing. It kinda put you IN the movie, bcause you felt just as confused as the characters and you wanted to know just as much as they did about what was happening. I actually wished there was a little less of the monster in the movie, but nevertheless, the camera shots and angles gave me the chills. xD The scenery was amazing, and so were the effects. People thought it would be a crap movie since it was shot with a handicam, but this movie was MEANT for the handicam. If it had been shot normally, it would have ruined it. The handicam totally WON.

So, if you aren't too obsessed with movies that have happy and resolved endings, go see this one. If you DO like your happy and resolved endings, don't go see it. :/

Yay internets. x_x

Soooo, this year in recap as pretty much like every other year for the past two years: go to school, work, go to conventions. The only big difference in my life was, obviously, Kevin. As of right now, we've only been dating for four months. It feels like its been forever though. We've gone through so much in those four months...especially in this last month (me getting sick with things that I don't really care to talk about). I still love him just as much as I did when I first met him, and I still get shivers down my spine when he kisses me. ^_^ Amazingly, he still loves me, even after all the crap I've put him through (unintentionally, of course). We've only had two fights, both of which did not last very long and were no where near being so bad that we'd break up over them. Whats going to be hard is leaving him in a few days. =( I will be going back to Savannah on Saturday, and I will miss him so so so so so so much. ;_;

Hope everyone had a nice New Years. ^^ I spent mine with Kevin. <3

I really need to get cracking on my cosplay. :X

Soo, my gift bags for this year's Xmas party are the shit. =D We had all these neat little stocking stuffers at Michael's for only a dollar, so I bought these little wooden puzzles (the kind with the wooden pegs like the puzzles you find at Cracker Barrel), grow-a-????? thingies where they come in all different types of cute thingies that you stick in the water and they grow =D (I got myself a Tippy the Turtle, yay!), blowing bubbles that don't pop, glow-sticky bracelets, candy canes, and then a panda shirt for Liz, an extra grow-a-thingy for Matt (he has grow-a-princess and grow-an-enchanted-castle) and Disney princess stickers, a $10 Gamestop gift card for Justin (my Secret Santa), annnnnnd everyone got a little ornament with their name on it. =D

I'm up so early a'cuz Matt is supposed to be here right now taking me to the mall. He should be here soon. I shall try to finish this entry. I have to return something, and we have to finish up our shopping. I just want to grab some more candy for my bags and a little somethingsomething for Jill, a'cuz its her birthday as well, and maybe a little something more for Kevin, since I only have a shirt and cologne for him. I DID have a watch, but I'm returning it, because, bless his heart, I think its too wide for his little wrist. xDDDD

HURRY UP MATT. XO We both have to be at work at four so we only have like three hours. ;_;

Sooooo, one of Momo's pups is dying. Its the saddest, most pathetic thing I have ever seen. I am so frustrated because I can't do anything. It is too late to take him to a vet, and the 24-hour hospital doesn't see smal mammals, the bastards. -_- Not that it would matter, all these fucking ass vets don't know anything about small mammals. I have to work in the morning, so that sucks. Basically, I can't do anything. I go back home on Tuesday, but I don't think he'll make it until then. He has just gotten worse and worse all night. It fucking sucks, because there is an animal hospital right down the road that sees small mammals.

Ugh. The poor baby barely moves. He drags himself along with his front paws...its like he lost all feeling in his back legs and tail. If I pick him up, he'll open his eyes and wave his front paws feebly and then just lie there...completely still. If it weren't for his breathing, I'd think he died. He will die soon, I'm sure. I'm not expecting him to survive the night.

Fucking hell. He seemed fine this afternoon...I really thought all four of these babies were going to make it.

This fucking sucks.

I know I went through that whole heartbroken stage where you feel like you can never love again, and I whined and cried about it on LJ, knowing full well that I was being stupid and ridiculous, but still unable to quell those feelings that I would just never be able to love someone again like I loved The Boy...

But, this weekend, I couldn't hold it back. >.< I was afraid to go that step with Kevin because I feared that once we reached that plateau, something would happen, and I would be hurt all over again. I just did not want to go through that whole situation a second time. >.< Every single time the thought, "I love him..." tried to creep into my head, my mind instantly reverted back to how horrible a broken heart had felt. Well, I told Kevin this weekend that I loved him. I've only felt that way about one other man, The Boy, and I never did tell him. I didn't think such intense feelings would appear so quickly so early in the relationship, because I am definitely NOT one of those girls who can throw that word around like its nothing. I surprised myself, but at the same time, I couldn't lie. Something about him and I just clicks. Soooo, he's officially the first boyfriend/boy-interest I've said "I love you" to and meant it. I just can't help it. XO The great news is, he loves me back. =D

Today, though, he said something really unnerving. Lately, he's been a bit depressed over having trouble finding a job...a real job. He's sent out his resume to a bunch of companies, but hasn't really heard back from any of them. He said that he should enlist and be an engineer for the Air Force. He's talked about that before, but I never really took him seriously. Today, though, I could tell that he meant it. Luckily for me, he doesn't quite fit the weight requirements (bless his heart). xDDD It just unnerves me a bit, because thats what The Boy does, and his being in the Air Force was one of the obstacles that had kept us apart. >.< I know not to judge this relationship by past experience, buuuut, I find it slightly weird nonetheless. xD Damn you Air Force!!

Hooray for having no monies. XO My tips are dwindling. x___x I can't access my Bank of America account yet because I don't have a debit card and checks are so last century. xDDD I guess thats a good thing, because I should be saving as much as I can. I'll be siphoning off a bit of money every paycheck to stick into my savings account. I think I'll have about ten dollars once all my bills go through. Of course, as soon as those checks clear, and I plump up the account a little bit, it will be time to pay rent. xD

I want to go back to school, arrg. I miss it. I miss the theater. I'm going crazy. UGH. Cabin fever or something. >.
