senashenta: (Misery Sure Loves Company)
Two entries in a row! Go me! =D;;

Mom came over today to help me move some things around in my place. I moved way back in the beginning of June, but idk I guess I have so much stuff that I'm still getting the last bits and pieces organized. It's the same story every time I move. Takes me forever to get settled completely.

Anyway, we got some stuff off to Goodwill and moved things around, then just sat around and chatted for a little while before heading out to Walmart. I needed some decongestant nasal spray and Mom needed some multivitamins, so we got those.

I also poked around for possible workout clothes, and was lucky enough that right now Walmart has all of their summer clothes on massive clearance, so I got a pair of shorts and two tank tops for a grand total of like $15. I still need to get to the YMCA and talk to someone about membership costs, but one step at a time, right?


The last few days I've been feeling very lethargic, mostly because I'm desperately fighting off a sinus cold/infection that's trying like hell to migrate into my lungs. So far keeping myself heavily medicated has worked, so I'm keeping that strategy in play for now.

Anyway, so I've just basically spent a lot of time laying around doing nothing and feeling moderately miserable. And so I've been watching TV shows on my laptop. The last couple days have been episodes of Mantracker, as well as a little House and a couple eps of MLP: Friendship Is Magic.

The latest episode of MLP was good, btw. New Princess Luna episode! It made me giggle. But they changed her design some, so now I don't think the wig I got for Luna cosplay next year will work. Mrr. =/ That's annoying, but there's not much I can do about it, sooo... *shrug*
senashenta: (A Little Strange Because I Am)
Yeah I fail at like... everything online lately. I've been having a lot of trouble irl with various things, which I may or may not get into in this entry. Anyway, list format today for the sake of my sanity because I have a fuckton of stuff to talk about since it's been so long since I last wrote anything. xD;

1) ANIME NORTH. Okay, basically I spent the whole weekend at my table trying to sell jewelry and pony commissions (since I wasn't allowed to actually sell the ponies there). I sold a bit, and got two commissions (Van from Escaflowne and Reno from FFVII. XD), but the way Artist Alley and Crafter's Corner was organized this year was RETARDED, and the Corner was way the hell out of the way so we got practically no traffic. SO ANNOYING. Anyway, all that work and spending that much time at the table, and I basically broke even for the cost of the con registration, the table, and the parts that went into the jewelry. So much for making money for Otakon. -__-;

Anyway, that aside, I got to see Mel and Zexy again. :3 I went to a D-Gray photoshoot with Mel on Friday, and to the Moonlight Ball with her and Bonnie on Saturday night for a while. I didn't get to see Zexy as much, but she stopped by my table twice to say hi and give her her present~

On Friday I wore my Org13 Demyx outfit. It was INSANELY HOT. DAMN PLEATHER. And I forgot my gloves at home, so I just wore my shark/dolphin rings instead. *shrug* I also didn't have my boots because the morons I ordered them from backed out at the last minute. This was remedied Saturday morning, though, when I found awesome bootcovers in the Dealer's Room. Then Saturday during the day I wore my casual!Demyx outfit. Did I mention I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new wig? It's so awesome there are no words to describe it. And it fits perfectly, and stays in place all day, it doesn't even budge. >w<~ Anyhow! Then Saturday night for the Moonlight Ball I wore my Haine cosplay. Sunday was Org13 Demyx again for a while, then last-minute casual!Lavi that pretty much all came from my closet lol.

I didn't buy a whole ton of stuff like I do most years because I was trying to save monies for Otakon, but I did get four boxes of pocky, a Riku plushie (I always get myself a plushie at AN), and about 30 buttons. XD; A bunch of KH ones, some FFVII ones and some Ouran ones. Also, one booth had kitty buttons and the proceeds from them went to a cat rescue, so I got myself one of those. Then I got three more the next day to send to people. XD; Oh, and I got some henna done on my arm. It's faded out now, but I took pics of it~

Various photos from AN. Haine cosplay photos when I get around to getting some from Mel or raiding my Mom's camera. >>; )

2) ON THE WAY HOME FROM ANIME NORTH. Two things happened; first, I was looking out the window of the van and actually saw a songbird attack a hawk in midflight. It was spectacular and I couldn't believe it. I've seen that kind of thing on Animal Planet, but I never thought I'd see it IRL. WOW.

Second... I broke a knuckle in my right hand. >__>;; I caught it in a booth when we stopped for food. It was all bruised for a while and hurt like a bitch, but I didn't bother going to the hospital. *shrug* Which was fine until a couple days ago when I smashed it off a doorknob and re-cracked it. xD; *FAIL OMFG*

3) OTAKON. Well... I didn't make any money toward Otakon at AN like I'd wanted, but I still managed to finagle out a way to pay for it. GO ME. Basically, I'm not paying my parents rent for next month, and then paying double in August. I'm also borrowing $300 from my Grandma, which I'm paying back in September. Ugh more debt but fuck it, I'M GOING. XD; So I've already paid for my registration and my plane tickets (NO 26 HOUR BUS RIDE FOR ME THIS YEAR), which completely maxed out my credit card two weeks ago, but you know... whatever. >>; It'll get paid off at the end of the month.

Maddie love, let me know when you have a tentative total for the stuff we're doing in Dayton and gas monies and everything. ♥

Cosplay for Otakon! Org13 Demyx and Haine for sure. Also, I think I'm going to do Riku cosplay from BOYS, just for kicks and to see how many people get it. I could trim up my Suigintou wig a bit and it'd work for Riku totally fine. I NEED SOME HEMP BRACELETS AND STUFF. I SHOULD GET SOME HEMP AND JUST MAKE THEM MYSELF IT WOULD BE CHEAPER. I also need some gray arm warmers to go as fake long sleeves under the t-shirt so that I don't have to wear layers lol. Also, yakuza!Kadaj, complete with pinstripe shirt and fedora. >D

I'm also bringing about six other wigs in case myself or anyone wants to do impromptu cosplay of anything. My Kyo wig for sure, and my blonde pigtail one, and probably my blue one and maybe my red one, though I got that one for Axel cosplay (next year maybe), and I don't want it to get messed up between now and when I have a chance to style it... hmm. Must think on this more.

4) B-GRADE MOVIES. After AN, we stopped at Dad and Lois' place to say hi and see teh doggies, and I borrowed 24 b-grade movies from him. XD TWENTY-FOUR. AWESOME. Some of the best ones were The Burrowers, Alien Raiders and Decoys (the second one is bad though.) I also borrowed Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, which I LOVED. ♥

5) SORA AND RIKU. Last week I had to take my rats to the vet. Riku was diagnosed with pneumonia, and the vet gave me antibiotics for him... but unfortunately, he died the next day. It's sad, but he was in a really bad way, so I'm kind of glad he didn't suffer for long. Sora doesn't seem to know what to do without him, though. Also, I had to treat Sora for mites today. That's no big deal, though.


7) FEET. Last Friday, my feet and ankles swelled up to twice their normal size. As in, I had no discernable ankle, and could barely walk because of it. =_=;; And they stayed that way until TUESDAY NIGHT. WTF? I have no idea why, but it was a pain and a little disturbing on top of that. I had a doctor's appointment yesterday though, and the doctor wants me to go for bloodwork, since it's possible my meds are the cause of the swelling. Yep.

8) DOCTORS IN TORONTO. A while back, I mentioned about going in for gastric bypass surgery. Last month I went to the initial consultation in Toronto, and then earlier this month I went for the appointment with the social worker and dietician. I still have to go to a gastric bypass class, and see an internist before going back to the surgeon again, at which point my surgery will actually be scheduled.

Things are actually coming along rather well. The only big problem right now is that my Grandma is really against it. She doesn't think I should do it. But then she thinks that my weight issues are my fault. It's bad enough that strangers assume I'm lazy and don't eat well, but having my own Grandma think that really hurts. She keeps giving me lectures about exercise and eating right-- I already eat right (even the dietician was impressed), and I exercise as much as I can but with my legs the way they are, it isn't always possible. I have to walk with a cane, Grandma, it's not like I can just break into an easy run. *sigh* I really need to talk to her about it, but... I know I'll just get another lecture about not trying hard enough, and end up crying for two days over it. I dunno...

9) THE YARD. Mom has decided this summer that she's sick of the back and front yard (what little we have of them, this is just a townhouse after all), and wants them to look really nice. So we've all been working on the yard for the last month, putting down sod and seeding and watering and pulling up weeds. Also, in the front yard we lined the sidewalk with quartz stones, with solar lights along the other side. Then next to the door we planted a little cedar tree, with more quarts around it. Yep.

10) ROLEPLAY. I haven't been rping as much lately, with everything IRL. I was supposed to be back from hiatus at TV like a month ago. I really need to get back there before people get sick of it and I get kicked out.

I have, however, been rping some zombie!apocalypse-verse Kingdom Hearts with Michi over email. It's hilarious and fun. Plus RikuRoku, which makes me happeh. :D And I've been rping with my bb Kiin over at [ profile] losechesters, which is a comm Kiin set up for us for "Winchestertastical" roleplay. I'm Sam and she's Dean and basically it's just for the sake of crack. It's SO much fun. Which reminds me, I need to think up another post for there... >.>;
senashenta: (Even Darkness Must Pass)
Been a while since I posted. Haha, I spent so many years writing in this thing every single day that lately when I haven't been writing in it much it seems weird. I go to post and realize it's been ten days (or whatever) since my last post and am surprised by it.

But recently I haven't been up to much... I'm actually quite sick right now (it's really TMI though, so I'm not going to elaborate.) I spent all last week trying to get through to my family doctor and failing, so I think I'm going to have to just break down and go to the Emergency Room, and probably have to endure at least one rather uncomfortable test that I can think of.

In the mean time, I was on hiatus at RY and TV, but my health always sucks and I can't be on hiatus forever, so I came off at RY yesterday and plan to come off at TV tomorrow. Being so sick the last while has really sapped my energy though; I'm not getting any nutrients or anything from my food right now (when I can even eat), and I've probably been taking too many pain pills. I've practically been living on cream-of-wheat because it's so bland and easy to digest. I still don't really feel up to much rping, but it's not fair to camp on characters if I'm just going to be away all the time. Plus I have to get back into helping with mod stuff at RY.

Anyway. Today I gave Sora and Riku a bath for the first time. They flailed around a little and generally went D8 at me. It was adorable. But they did need a bath. And I'm hoping if I do it often enough they'll learn to like playing in the water, or at least to tolerate it. They really liked being wrapped up together in a towel afterward though. ♥

I finished Foundation yesterday. It's the new Heralds of Valdemar book by Mercedes Lackey. I didn't realize how much I'd missed Valdemar until I started reading it (lol two days ago, I read for like 12 hours straight. XD;) Maybe now I can try writing some fic again? It'd be nice to work through my four-years-and-going writer's block. But I'm not holding my breath. Not being able to concentrate to write and draw is part of being bi-polar, and just reading a new Valdemar novel won't magically cure me of that. I wish though!

Today I found a copy of Razorback in region 1 NTSC format on ebay. Dad and I have both been searching for that movie for months now, and all we can find are copies on ebay that are region 2 PAL, which won't play on North American DVD players or TVs. So I'm hoping the seller will ship to Canada, but if he replies to my question about it and says no, Maddie says I can get it shipped to her/Chloe's place and then send them the money to forward it. >D

And now random pictures just for the hell of it:

Loki and Tri have a night of drinking, apparently. )

Nazoko. Still looking like Bella. I need the right wig and eyes for her, desperately. )

EDIT: It's getting pretty close to the day I'm taking Loki in to get his back claws done. The closer it gets to time, the more bad I feel about it, even though it's for a medical reason. Every time he comes and cuddles with me, or purrs at me I feel guilty. DX
senashenta: (I Can't Let The World Bring Me Down)
Went to the doctor yesterday for prescription refills, and while I was there Dr. H asked about the rash on my neck from last time I was in; it showed up in the summer and I thought it was a heat rash, but then it didn't go away.

Last time I saw her she told me it was a fungus thing that comes on in the summer (so basically a type of heat rash, thanks lol) and told me to buy some Selsun Blue shampoo and apply it before showering for a week and it would go away. But it clearly hasn't. In fact, it's gotten worse! =D;

So she had another look and said she's going to send me to a dermatologist. Yep. They should be calling sometime in the next week or so. Whatever. It's not itchy or anything so I'm not in a huge hurry about it. Plus, it'll be the same asshat I saw like ten years ago, and I'm not looking forward to it. =__=;

Also, I talked to her about-- )

Let's see... yesterday my messenger bag for AU!Demyx cosplay came in, and so did the third Ouran CD that I bought a while back. Yey. Oh oh! And I found a Kyo!wig! I still have to pay for it but squee anyway! =3

Also, I've been working on ponies of course. It's that time of year again! ^_^; Eheh. I've decided that about half my ponies this year are going to be mini McD's ones, which are easier to make, easier to transport, and will be cheaper for people to buy. I've been calling them "mascot ponies" because of the ones I've been doing so far.

I have two Moogle ones done (and want to do at least two more in different colour schemes), and a couple of Heartless ones (which are much cuter than I thought they'd be, Imma keep one! X3), and I'm halfway through Luna, Artemis, Mokona and Madoki. They're all kind of meant to be the cute animal (or animal-ish) critters. I want to do a Chokobo and Kon from Bleach as well... anything else I should do? They're so cute and fun! X33

Pics of those + Duo!pony + Utena!pony and possibly Zexion!pony and Lavi!pony soon I swear. *is so bad at posting photos lately and made of faaaaail*
senashenta: (Curious...)
I was talking with [ profile] smoulderedtears today and she jokingly said I should make a list of all the illnesses/etc. that I have. So I did. XD; I have no life, lol. Besides, I've never really sat down and written it all out before...

Holy crap. How the hell am I still alive? >>;;

Asthma; Really bad asthma, too. It took until I was 14/15 for the doctor to finally get it somewhat under control, and even now it sometimes freaks out on me. If I forget to take my Advair even once (I have to take it twice a day), I inevitably end up having an attack. -.-;;

Allergies; I'm allergic to all kinds of things. Most animals at least a little bit, and every plant in existence. My worst allergies are to peanuts, brazil nuts, and birds. I also have terrible hayfever. Blegh.

Chronic Bronchitis; Relating to my asthma and allergies. I end up with infections and stuff in my lungs a lot.

Chronic Laryngitis; I've had laryngitis since around December 2003. It comes and goes, and the doctor can't find a reason for it. I'm starting to think I stressed my vocal chords with my voice acting (I was acting V-mon in a Digimon 02 dub when it started) and screwed them up that way. >>;

Bi-Polar Disorder; Whoo. Do I even need to explain this one?

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome; I have cysts on my ovaries the size of grapefruits, wtf. It means I have screwed up hormones and irregular menstrual cycles. Because they're so big, they also make my back hurt most of the time, too.

Weak Joints; Which could possibly have to do with PSO, but I'm not 100% sure. My knees, my wrists and my right shoulder are the worst. My knees go out all the time, and I've dislocated my wrists once when I worked at Tim Hortons. >>;; Now they go out every time I try to carry something heavy. Owie. ;~;

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; I'm exhausted all the time. =__=;; Besides that, I feel nauseous almost every time I eat (and sometimes when I drink), and once in a while I'll have a day when my hands won't stop shaking. I get dizzy sometimes, but not very often.

Restless Leg Syndrome; When I'm trying to get to sleep, or when I've just woken up and am still groggy, the muscles in my arms and legs will twitch. It's not really bad, though.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder; OCD... well, I'm not technically OCD, but the doctors worry about it because I'm borderline. If I get much worse I'll have to be treated for it. :P

Agoraphobia; A mild case, but I have a lot of trouble with crowds and with people being too close/loud/flailing arms or etc. Most of the time I can deal, but occasionally it gets bad and I have an attack.

[unidentified Sleep Disorder X]; Rrrgh, they know for some reason when I sleep, half the time I don't go into REM, but they don't know why. My doctor wants me to go for a week-long sleep lab in Toronto to try to figure it out... but I don't drive, and don't know anyone in Toronto so I'd have no where to go in the day. Besides which, the idea makes me very uncomfortable for some reason...

Chronic Sinus Infections; Related to my allergies. I've gotten used to it, actually.

Tendonitis; In both my hands/wrists. I can't hand-write anything more than about half a page before my hands seize up and the tendons swell. Very painful. That's why I type everything. XD;;

WOW, do I win at illnesses or what? It's all I could think of right this moment, other than regular depression... do you really blame me though? Ugh. -___-;

Photoblogging, Day 3 )

EDIT: Dammit. Hyatal Hernia; The flap that sepparates my esophogus from my stomach doesn't work right, so stomach acid comes up and burns me. A lot. I'm on heavy doses of Pariet to neutralize the acid, but my esophogus is still damaged because of it.
