Things have been pretty busy with me!
So, let me tell you about Sacanime. I went as Lara Croft and it was very successful. I had a lot of people ask for my photo. It was my first time going as a character with props. I was very proud of my climbing axe, but it ended up falling apart in the end. I learn a lot about making props. I'm hoping I can do more soon. I was extremely happy to hangout with friends who I don't get to see often. It made me happy. I finally got to meet Troy Baker! I was so happy! Troy plays Joel in Last of Us, Snow in Final Fantasy XIII, Booker in Bioshock Infinite, and he'll be voicing a younger Joker in Batman Arkham Origins! He went to Sacanime a while ago, but I missed him when it was time for autographs. So when I was in line, I could hear him say, "Is that Lara Croft?" He knew who I was! Well, then again, Tomber Raider 2013 was one of the most popular games, so it really shouldn't surprise me. I told him I was excited about him being Joker and got him to give me an evil smile saying he was too. The only sad part about this was that I wasn't allowed to get a photo with him... it made me said. Later on that night, my friends and I got to see Troy and his brother preform their new album. It was great. I knew this would probably be the only time I would see him here at this convention because his career is starting to take off. Hopefully one day I'll be able to see him again and get a photo with him. Also, Nolan North was these. He's mostly known for Nathan Drake from Uncharted. I didn't get his autograph, but I hope I will soon. It's funny because after the convention was over, I told my friend he was there and she said, "I should have told my boyfriend! He loves Nolan North!"
So, my job with Macy's is still going well. I've work on all floors expect house ware. I also worked at my school's bookstore as again. So, I had two jobs going on once school started. I probably won't be doing that. It just caused unnecessary stress. Yes, it was extra pocket money, it just really made me feel like I didn't have any time to myself. Now that the bookstore job is over, I've been focusing on school more.
Time to tell you about my classes!
First is Ethics. I'm taking a class called Africa: Myths and Realities. The professor is pretty cool. He's very passionate about teaching. So far, I'm liking the class.
Second is Art History. The teacher's lectures are hard to follow at times. I would have rather had my old art history teacher just because I knew how she wanted things. I thought I was getting a cool teacher, but they switched the teachers at the last minute.
Japanese has a lot of homework. While it is short homework, its very time consuming if you aren't familiar with hiragana (like me...). Its getting easier, but like I said, its just time consuming.
Beginning Painting: my teacher is driving me crazy... that's really all I can say...
So, my brother is out of the house. Which means that he took the XBOX 360. So, I bought a PS3! I know with the PS4 coming out soon that it might have been silly, but I would rather play the games now. I got my PS3 for a good price along with two Uncharted games (I got it as part of a deal). Needless to say, I love them. I'm hoping to play Heavy Rain, Batman Arkham Origins, Beyond Two Souls, Last of Us, Uncharted 3, Devil May Cry Reboot (since a lot of people at Sacanime really liked it), maybe Infamous, Portal, and God of War. It just kind of depends on how everything goes. I'm pretty picky when it comes to games, but these are the ones that caught my eye.
Well, that's really all for now. Hope to post some more art soon!
