College Update

I figure I should actually start posting about my LIFE again -.-

So this is the first full week back in college after the Christmas break, the beginning of my second semester. This semester I'm booked up with Japanese 101, Film, Irish Dance, and American Heritage (bleah!). I'm not that happy to be back, but it sure beats sitting around and doing nothing, so I guess I should enjoy it or whatever.

Sigh. Anyway, I haven't been getting ANY writing done lately. I have ZERO inspiration or motivation for my fanfics (my poor readers! TT.TT I'm trying, really!) and I'm totally stuck on my novels (both, unfortunately). My best friend was SUPPOSED to come out to UT and hang out (and help me write!), but unfortunately...she went to Disneyland instead. Can I blame her? No. Can I try? You betcha!

In other news, we got a puppy! Her name is Liesel and she's about 2 1/2 months old. She's a border collie mix and VERY cute.

Props, Props, Props!

Awright! So for some of my costumes this year, I'm going to making some serious props. These be them!

Lightning Farron (Final Fantasy XIII) AKA my dream costume

Survival Knife

Used mostly by Hope (squee! such a cute lil angst muffin! XD). A gift from Light's sister Serah.


Lights up, issued by GC (Guardian Corps), who Light used to work for.


Actually omitted from some cutscenes; forgotten? Shouldn't be too hard!

Blazefire Saber

*siiigh* holy &)(_*^%%&^%&^. That about sums it up. Because I'm an overachiever with this stuff, my friend Alyssa and I (thank frickin heavens for physics majors with interests in prop work!) are trying to make it so it actually transforms. It'll be a real challenge!

Juvia (Fairy Tail) She's such a riot!

Yeaaaah, I can't imagine me using this either -.- Oh well! In cosplay, nobody cares about who you REALLY are! XD

Maka (Soul Eater) The one I need the quickest!

Yeah, this one shouldn't be too hard. I've already got it planned out, actually ^^;

Costumes? Ugh. One thing at a time TT.TT
