Here’s a quick summary of my life since my last update:

- I had a really terrible time with course registration this year. I was pretty much told that I wasn’t smart enough for my major. I haven’t given up on myself yet, so it pisses me off that others already have. I’m usually the first to underestimate my abilities, so what gives?

- I'm doing it anyway.

- My jaw realignment/orthodontic work is becoming a nightmare. I don’t see any improvement in the two teeth that are not aesthetically prefect, yet my other splendid, wonderful, correct teeth are being moved around for seemingly no reason at all. I’m hoping there’s a greater picture at the end of all of this, but in the meantime when I talk my upper molars grind against my lower molars and not only does it hurt, but I have a lisp on top of my already obvious accent.

- I'm now officially platinum blond. I haven't been this blond since the seventh grade, and I actually kind of like it.

- I've been spending almost all of my free time with my cousin. Today we went to the pool and to tan, and had a really fabulous time. We're drinking and partying a lot (responsibly), and it feels like I'm having the kind of summer that you're supposed to have at seventeen. I hope it never ends.

- Bayonetta is a really stupid game. I'm so glad that I didn't pay for it.

- We're going on vacation for a week starting on the 30th. We're probably going to head more into the inland of BC for a few days, and then we'll take a trip over to Banff. In light of such awesome, I finally bought myself a new mp3 player. I didn't realize how starved for music I was until I bought it. My old faithful Samsung died a peaceful death of natural causes this past spring, and I've missed him dearly. My new one will also play video! Le yay! Road trip!

- I come back from my trip with just enough time for Anime Evolution. I'm not really looking forward to the convention aspect of it for some reason (maybe because I have no new costumes to show?) but I look forward to being with my girlfriends all weekend long.

- A week after the convention, we're going to Jamaica for our annual 'somewhere warm' vacation. We keep changing the location from the Dominican Republic, to Mexico to Jamaica, but it seems like Jamaica is going to be the winner. At the very least, we've already contacted our travel agent about it and we're waiting for a response.

- I'm seeing Cirque du Soleil on the 24th of August, and I'm already stupidly excited. I know that I'm going to cry really hard mostly because it will be beautiful, and partly because I can only afford to see it once until it comes back in two years. It's unfair that something that I love so much is so scarce around these parts. Stupid Vancouver and it's lack of culture.

- I'm still being treated like shit at work. I'm going to call in sick during my vacation and let whatever may happen simply happen. I'm sure I can get another job if it comes down to it.

Lastly, here are the long-overdue Tao pictures that Alex and I did one warm, summery day! We're *hoping* to finally shoot my Edward FMA costume sometime before the end of summer. I'm really eager to pay tribute to what has been one of my most beloved teen-years series of all time.

I love how your mask looks, and the nicely tanned thighs. ♥ The poses are really spot-on too. Very cute. XD I'm excited for all your trips, actually. :,3 Sounds like so much fun! Can't wait to see what lovely photos you'll take too.

Thank you! To tell you the truth, the thighs are only nicely tanned because I'm wearing pantyhose that are supposed to match the skintone of a black person xD

Oh man, I'm so excited too! August is going to be a great month for me. I think I deserve it after the hell of registration this year!

Bayonetta's bad?

And those cosplay pics are wonderful! (Do you have any pics of the shoes? I'm so curious to see the finished product there.) The sweater looks so comfy!

Uh, yes, very much so. Have you not played it yet? She actually says 'I should've been a stripper instead!' during one of the loading screens. I almost spat out my drink when I heard.

Thanks! And no, I don't have any shots of the shoes on their own. I did actually make them properly (without the damn heel) and had a hard time balancing. However, I made my leg warmers a little too long (which I intend to modify by AE), so you can't really see my hard work :(

Never tried it, don't think I will now!

Ooh, awesome! I am so in love with the paws.

Hope you get the dental stuff cleared up soon. That's just no fun. :(

Bayonetta: The general consensus among my group of fellow geek-types is that someone in that game studio made a bet. "I bet we can stick a ton of different fetishes into one game, with at least a dozen of them being embodied in the main character alone, and it'll sell like crazy!"

My friend and I were talking yesterday, and he says that my lack of enjoyment of Bayonetta is probably due to my lack of penis. However, I look at it and think 'come on, men can't be that stupid'. Yes, she's hot and shoots bullets out of her shoes, but there are such huge holes in the storyline, and the graphics are so sub-par that I don't think even the loneliest of sixteen-year-old boys wouldn't notice and cringe.

Maybe it's just me though.

You missed a few fetishes, there. Glasses, got the whole "cougar/MILF" thing going on, prehensile hair, skintight "clothes", bit of S&M during her finishers... And yet, ironically, other than the decent chest size (okay, and maybe the hair ^^; ) I can't find myself getting all that excited about her design. I dunno, maybe they just put way, way too many in at once. Doesn't help, for that matter, that I've found glasses on characters in both games and anime never quite seems to be pulled off properly. Real life and comics? Heck yeah! <3 But games and animation rarely do it right, and I've yet to figure out why... So no, totally not just you.

I have a hell time registrating for my courses too! they keep bumping me back to second year and UBC's enrollment services have such sh*tty staffs. Wish they would stop hiring dumb people >

I know! The UBC career advisors are assholes. I'm paying this university thousands of dollars - you'd think they'd try to be a little kinder!
