Reading, writing, and NaNoWriMo!

Woo! I'm trying to get my creative juices flowing after months and months of creative blockage. I've just not been the lease bit inspired to draw, but writing sure is piquing my interest. Thank God I have my faithful aquaorbis to help me...she's such an awesome writer! One day she's going to be FAMOUS AS SHIT and I hope she doesn't forget me!

I've not updated this journal in a few months...just been a bit busy and kinda on the sad side...but I suddenly have the urge to do some Photoshop stuff!

:D

erm...waaaah...MY BRAIN!!!!! Call of Duty Double XP Weekend Update and other such Wiggly Fun.

A grand update on Memorial Day weekend wrap up! Behold, updates!

Many are personal and private: I'll say only that I am no longer with my husband. He remains always and forever my best friend, but nothing more.

I have a wonderful new boyfriend whom I care for very much! He's passionately Call of Duty-ing at the moment...we've been together for almost a year now!

I've sold both my old BJDs, save for Nikolai's head, which needs a new body! I acquired and sold a Fairyland Minifee Shiwoo whom I named Bryce, and I'm in the process of saving up for my next Minifee: a Shushu named Astral Intilou! She's one of my grail dolls, and after much thinking and considering, I've decided to purchase her brand new from Fairyland via Denver Doll Emporium!

So my doll count is thus so far:

Nikolai (floating head)-Bobobie/Resinsoul Feng (NS)
Riot-Hujoo Baby Is (NS)
Calliope-Obitsu Tiny

Hopefully I'll have Astral by the beginning of Fall...I've still got to save up for her, but now that I have two jobs (Ted's and Publix! :D) it shouldn't be too hard...I'm even thinking about ordering a Littlefee too, but I think I should make it a separate transaction. I think each doll deserves her own debut!

I'm having such mixed feeling about owning BJDs lately...on one hand, I am completely infatuated with them and I want to make them a permanent part of life...yet on the other hand, I can't help but think that they are just glorified playthings and can seem quite trivial and even sometimes a little juvenile. I don't know what it is! I'm still over the moon excited about owning Astral...I've tried to come up with her name for weeks now, and tonight it came to me! I've owned lots of boy dolls and have always had trouble bonding with them...Astral it seems is already forming her personality and she isn't even here yet!

I also need to go to my first doll meet...there doesn't seem to be any in my immediate area, so it looks like I'll be traveling quite a distance to go to any future doll meets...I think that attending one will help me find my real role within the hobby...I certainly don't want to leave!

AND WILL SOMEONE REMIND ME TO GET MY NINTENDO DS GAMES FROM MY OLD HOUSE SOON? :)

Pokemon & Pizza

So I'm (sadly) counting down the days until i must return to Florida. I'm excited to be in my old home again, but I'm surely going to miss all of the wonderful new friends I've made here...it's so hard spending so much time in a place, getting to know the people and the land, only then having to uproot yourself from it...I fell like I've left little holes all over the planet! :S

So to keep in good spirits, I'm eating some PIZZA (which has pretty much been my entire diet for the last 2 weeks..NOT GOOD) and playing Pokemon Pearl...I have such a love/hate relationship with Pokemon. It's so cute and can be so much fun, yet it can be so friggin' confusing that I normally have to buckle after a a few minutes and look up the walkthrough online...I hate that. I love to play games so much, but sometimes they get so darn confusing!!! Linear games like Mario Bros. I can handle. Zelda makes me cry.

I got another email from my school today. It was my financial adviser wanting me to call her about the next academic year. So hopefully this is what I was waiting for; the opportunity to switch degrees!! Hopefully everything will work out okay...it gives me stomach knots to think that my loan company would go ahead and make me starting paying off the loans I had for Game as I go into Graphic Design, but hopefully that won't happen..we'll just have to see! I'm hopeful that everything will go somewhat in my favor...wheee!

It's getting close to Halloween! I love Halloween to death. I just HAVE to decorate the house this year!!! But that means getting up into the attic with all the scary spiders..how fitting. I normally am not scared of spiders, but there are recluse spiders in Florida, and I've already had a run-in with the likes of them and I don't want to provoke any more...but the attic is the KEY TO SUCCESS!!! Hopefully I can find a way to just scare the spider-piss out of them before I get up there...like run around and bang on the ceiling with a broom or something. Wishful thinking.

I don't think I'll dress up unless I find something laying around the house that I can use. I've got to stick to my budget like CLOCKWORK...I think I'll just set up a savings account at my old bank and just start shoveling money into it...my mother needs it so badly...so do I, but if I don't send my mother money, then we lose the house. Not good. I'll find a way to make it happen!

The good thing is, I have a wonderful loving husband by my side now. He is the best thing that ever happened to me. EVER. Seriously. I don't know what I'd do without him! He's my hero! I'll have to find a way to endure the time without him until he arrives in Florida around Christmas time...I'm hoping to have him over in time to decorate the tree!!

Time for tea.

Muah.

Back!

Hey guys! I haven't updated this in so long, that LJ deleted my old pinkastoi account! *sniff* BUT IT'S BACK!!!

For the record, it's pronounced: PINK-ah-stoy. I named this journal (for some damn reason) after my grandfather's nickname for marshmallow Peeps! He always called the pink ones Pinkastoi's, the yellow ones Yellowastoi's, the blue one's Blueastoi's, etc....I have no friggin' clue where the names came from, but they've stuck ever since! xD

CONFUSION GONE!!!

So Halo Reach came out yesterday! My husband and I went out at 11pm on Monday to get it at Game...he had pre-ordered it, and we went with a few buds plus my bro-in-law to pick it up! Not as much fun as I'd hoped it would be...lots of people were there, but they weren't talking to each other...I'm used to the people in America getting all excited about games!! xD

I suppose I should mention I live in England...will be here for another week, then it's off back to Florida! I've been here since March to get married!!!

So yes, back to Halo Reach. My husband has been playing it since around 12:30am this morning. It's almost 10am. He still hasn't stopped.

LOL.

I got my new BJD on the 9th! He is such a lovely doll! He is a NS BBB/RS Feng named Nikolai! I have such a crush on him!!! I want to get him a new slightly stockier body though...his default body is just too lanky and floppy for me. Rika, my first BJD is also getting anew body...i hope I don't turn into Hybrid Lady... ;*(

Got back into my old Tamagotchi kick too! So far I have my two British version Tamas going...my V3 and my Music Star, which is a PAIN IN THE BUTT. When I get home, I'll have to bust out the V2 and the Tamasuku for fun!!!

I'm a little over a year into school. I like it, but i don't LOVE it, like I feel I should just a little...so I'm in the process of changing my degree from Game Production to Graphic Design....Game just doesn't hold the interest it once did...it's getting WAY too technical.

I can't wait to get home and fix up my Mom's old house to live in! My husband and I lived there for 4 months alone before we got married, and it was great! We miss the old girl. She's a fixer-upper, but we can't wait to put all our hard work and love and energy into making the house ours!!!!

The only sucky part is going to be getting all of our crap from England to Florida....guuuuuuuuuh....
