HAY HAY L TO THA J
I get so sad when people keep saying LJ is dead and nobody uses it. THIS IS A LIE. I know lots of you still read it - but I suspect, like me, now that we're not all students any more with enough free time to update with all the exciting things we're doing with our lives, the lack of updates is more due to a lack of things to say >_<
After all, if I updated every day, it would read like : "Went to work, read some papers. Thought about cats for a bit. Wrote the odd email. Played with my phone when bored. Came home. Napped. Ate dinner. Watched TV. Bed." Because I'm a real adult now, and most real adults have regular and not very exciting routines to their lives.
Added to this is the fact that this MARVELLOUS little site called CosplayIsland has this GRAND little feature of journals for costumes, and the cosplay updates on LJ become slightly redundant.
I like Twitter because it's perfect for throwing out the odd random thought. I use Facebook a little more now because I can do it on my phone. But frankly I still prefer LJ to either of them, because I prefer longform updates even if they're less frequent, and very importantly, it allows me to use filters. Sometimes I only want certain people to see certain things, and Facebook and Twitter fail horribly for that. And also, LJ was how I got to know most of you, so I refuse to abandon it.
Thus: I present to you, a somewhat general update on my life (may or may not be interesting): ( SUBJECT THE FIRST: Martial arts & healthCollapse ) ( SUBJECT THE SECOND: The Lakes and the Car CurseCollapse ) ( SUBJECT THE THIRD: Cosplay and AyaconCollapse )
I am involved in STUFF at Ayacon!!
As well as dragging a buncha tentacles around, I will be helping out with some events. I will probably be running assistance at Phil & Tab's electronics panel, which is scheduled for Saturday I believe. I will also be modelling for Chevi's makeup panel on Sunday morning, and we're still working out the kinks but I should be running a charity cosplay Bring & Buy on Sunday afternoon. Dis yore chance to get rid of old fabrics/costumes/wigs that you now look back on and go "what was I thinking?!", making space in your stores for MORE fabrics/costumes/wigs, and the bonus is that you are also helping charity through your shameless addiction to fabric/costumes/wigs.
When all the details have been ironed out I shall spam the information on all available fora and networks.
FINALLY we have been in the house for a year and have redecorated NOTHING. But both the front and back gardens are somewhat tidier. Honestly. It is the fault of EuroCosplay.
