Life has been pretty hetic since getting back from Kitacon all the way back in March, l But alot of good things have happened.
I have a new job!. Starting the 12th of Aug i will be working for the Retail store in the UK called Primark. And it couldn't have come at a better time, Im tired doing the job im in now, (been doing it for 6+ years) and if you know me in real life you would know just how stressful it has been getting recently. Since i kinda moan about it to anyone who will listen XD
Plus they refused me time off Alcon in September, which is all ready paid for and i gave them plently of notice. I was thinking of just not going to work the days of Alcon but then i wouldn't be able to enjoy myself knowing i would have to go in and face them afterwards. >_<
But all being well i have the time off for Alcon, my new job hrs are great, i will be working 3-7pm mon to fri and the other best bit is i get my weekends back (mostly) I havn't had real weekends since i started working 6 years ago.
Looking forward to starting on a new path in life and seeing where this one takes me.
I also have a pretty packed septemeber, not only will i be in a new job, I have 2 conventions planned. One about a week after the other.
First i have Alcon 4-7th of Septemeber. A number of friends have been going on about it for a few years now, and since i havn't been to a convention since Kitacon i wanted to fit another one in before the end of the year. So after alot of thinking about it, keeping an eye out on the site, reading and talking about it with a few friends i decided to book it.
Everyone i have spoke to about it and they have been have said how laided back it is, and it's cheap conpaired to alot of cons we attened plus its local-ish.
Cosplay wise im not sure at the moment it will be re-wears but i know i will have some form of Sakura, her main Shippuden outfit, i also borrowed a Green Jonin jacket from my friend (that i made him so he could be Kakashi) so thinking of wearing that since she is currently wearing in the lastest manga when i don't want to be in full fancy cosplay. Yay for closet cosplays ^^ May also take Sailor Moon too since im on a Sailor Moon kick at the moment. Depends what else i can fit in my suitcase XD.
Then the week after that I will be going to J-Con in Derby, which is a one day event (Well its 2 days but the main event day is Saturday)
I don't really count that as a con, and im taking my brother along again this year all being well so for me i just class it as a day out with friends in cosplay (depending on how drained i feel from Alcon)
Im also going to be slightly poorer in September, Not only am i paying out for the 2 conventions, 2 games are coming out one i have all ready paid for.
The first is the latest Naruto Game coming out for the Xbox360 (and PS4). I have gone with the collecter ed, which comes with a lovely Naruto figure, metal tin, game and other nice goodies but it's set me back quite a bit.
The second game im wanting to get is the new Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire game coming out for the 3DS. X_X
I have also been playing with my Resin and have got an addiction to it now, XD Im loving how each piece has come out so far, not had many fails and love that fact i can make little presents for friends and make them personal.
Im currently waiting for a new mold to come so i can try it out. But with how close Alcon seems to be and how busy im going to be in the next few weeks i think i need to put it to one side and work on cosplay stuff. (espically since i have a commsion to do for a friend as well).
But yeah think thats all my Good news for now, hopefully no more moaning about how work sucks.
