Hmm... well, two months have passed since my last update, and MAN has a lot happened! So! Let's back up for a moment to March:
Several important events took place this month, which should have been written down RIGHT AWAY. But I'm stupid and lazy, so you'll learn to deal.
First off, I actually, finally made a totally awesome friend out here in the desert (Yay! Amanda!)who totally gets all my fangirly obsessions and doesn't think I'm
psychotic! And c'mon. Anyone who I can talk to about all my band obsessions for hours on end and wont get fed up with me is pretty much amazing.
For St. Pattie's Day, there was a big fashion show/luncheon that I somehow got suckered into, and had to walk the runway with Marisa (in one of her dresses, no less)and was absolutely terrified! Somehow I pulled it off and survived long enough to make it back so safe, safe backstage, where I collapsed in a shuddering mess of "What was I thinking!??"
Shortly after, Dir en Grey would be completing their first US tour at the Wiltern in LA, and Amanda had tickets! When I was invited to go, I remember being in a state of total shock, then exploding into a fangirly explosion of... I dunno, hyper goo... or something. I vaguely recall grabbing Mom and yelling "OH MY GOD, I'm going to see Kyo in REAL LIFE!!" then running off squeeing down the hall. And oh, what a concert it was! While waiting for Diru to come out, Amanda and I were practically having seizures. If it'd taken any longer to set up, I think we would have died of heart attacks!
We screamed so loud that night, I was surprized I could speak the next day! I ended up buying t-shirts, DVDs and posters (ahh, concert goods!)
Things at work only got better in March- I got my very first raise! And an offer to become a full-time employee after I finished school. I'm also taking on more responsibilities now, and am learning a lot more!
The final main event of March would have to be a new addition to the family: my rabbit, Chester. His full name is *ahem* Winchester Roderick Bernard Von Du Belvedere XVII.Chester!
April was a little less eventful, but still had spring break (which I had terrible allergies the whole time and ended up getting an ear infection x.x;;) But over the break, I started-- and finished-- Kingdom Hearts II. DAMN that was a good game! Krista stole it away from me as soon as I finished and she too couldn't put it down- she beat it in just over 2 weeks.
Cara's birthday was this month, and I went down to Huntington for 4 days- two of which I got to stay at Cara's, and then on Monday, I tagged along to school with everyone. School's a lot more fun when you're a guest who doesn't have to do anything!!
While I was down, I finally bought House of Leaves, which I've been DYING to read FOREVER! We all geeked around at the bookstore for hours, and as usual, I bought several books and a handful of manga. It's the Bookstore Curse(tm)- I can't go into a bookstore and not buy something. Or lots of things, as is usually the case.
Today was, of coarse, Mom's Birthday, and Krista spent the whole day cooking cakes, etc while I spent the whole day at work and putting out kitchen fires in-between. Over all, it was a pretty good day, although I hope that eventually the kitchen will stop smelling like... well.. burned things.
Well! I've got only tonight and tomorrow to try and finish 2 weeks worth of homework, so I'd better go! This successfully sums up my past few months- yay! (Aren't you glad it's over?)
