Today was the last day of Comic Con. Although it is indeed a sad thing, I am also relieved because it gives me a reason to stop spending on art supplies. It’s crazy what two days can do to your budget – - I can only wonder how much was spent by the people who went on all three days. Shudder, shudder, shudder. Continue reading
Happy Comic Con friends! As you may know, Comic – Con officially opened yesterday! Today was my first day as a volunteer, and even though that part of my day was super fun – - nothing can beat the delight of spending some money (yes, I’m a girl like that).
Okay, I guess the initiative of me finally popping out of nowhere takes me off from my apparent, indefinite hiatus.
I’m not going to lie to you, this school year is definitely overwhelming. Fundraisers, grad, school work, applications — they’re all over my head right now! But seeing how I am still alive, surviving and hopefully sane tells me that things are still okay. After all, if I look back to this post years and years from now — my problems at the moment would probably be child’s play comparing to whatever I’ll be facing with in the far, unforeseeable future. I have so much to tell you guys: my trip to America, my new obsessions, sketches over my busy summer — and many more. Having no laptop makes my blogging life a million times harder (and inconvenient), but thanks to a certain someone who constantly motivates me to write — I finally have found my will, again.
While I sort out the other posts, I figured I should start with something more current. How current? Pretty current. This is the first time in a long time that I blogged about something that actually happened on the same day (disregard the fact that it is midnight, let me have my moment)! I usually do it the day after, but since I’m also doing a blog post for one of my classes this term — why not? I have time, sort of. Continue reading
She looked just like her.
Her eyes, her voice, the way she smiled — she is basically everything Jessamine was. However, — according to those who knew — claim that she took after him. Her mischief, they say, and the way she makes a face looks terrifyingly like the way he would. But in truth, Corvo didn’t really know. In fact, he’ll never really know. For him, Emily Kaldwin will always resemble the woman he had always loved — the late empress of this realm, the mother of this very child! She was the living, breathing, joy that she left him — a gift that they created together.
It hasn’t been long since she passed, the years crawled like ages and Corvo could still remember her face like it was yesterday. There was a shadow of a smile on her face when he held her, as her life withered away in the seconds. Despite the malice brought upon her, Jessamine softened as she lay there cradled in his bloodied arms. Corvo knew at that moment she forgave him — despite failing what he swore to do from the start.

If you remember my ice skating rant post, then you know The Forks.
What is The Forks? It’s a lot of things. A meeting place, a market/shopping site, a venue, an occasional skating rink, and many more. To summarise, it’s just a lot of things that somehow and someway — it entices people. I like going there myself, and I don’t know why.
Today was an unexpected adventure.
After failing to go to the zoo (again), we decided to give Plan B a try — a trip to Osbourne. Yes, Osbourne. As a resident of this part of Canada, Osbourne to me was a place I pass by. I never really had a chance to explore this part of the city — sad, but the current oppurtunity made me excited.
You can say that I may be too advanced for my own good.
It’s a good thing — at least in my perspective — I wanted the coming long weekend to be free just in case my parents had something up their sleeves. Ever since I told Ria to stop planning my birthday parties (she’s a dear like that), I’ve been taking them out for dinner instead. My treat of course, I think it’s the best way to bribe them — with free food. Continue reading
