ACen was super awesome this year! It was a definite improvement over the ball of stress that was this year's Ohayocon. The ACen plans worked out great and the whole thing was just a lot of fun.

We had some really nice weather earlier this week, which I was enjoying. But, for some reason even the nice weather makes me want to be back in Japan. It makes me wish that I was running around in Tokyo; shopping at Takeshita Dori in Harajuku, exploring Ikebukuro, doing 花見, etc. It's not that I dislike being here, I just wasn't ready to give up the life that I had in Japan yet.

Something that does make me happy though is getting the fabric for my Izaya cosplay! After having cosplay ADD this semester, I finally settled on Izaya. First, I was going to do Chane because I love her character, but then I figured I would save it for a later con when I can get other people to cosplay Baccano characters with me. Then, I was going to cosplay Austria because we had all been talking about doing a Hetalia cosplay group, but that fell through. So, I finally decided on Izaya because I've been loving Durarara. All I need to do for his costume is make the jacket and then order his accessories. I also figured that it would be cheaper than some of the other cosplays I could do. Of course, Izaya is already trolling me 'cause the supplies for the jacket were more expensive than I expected. That's okay though because I'm super excited about cosplaying him. And [livejournal.com profile] yaexrae is going to be my Shizuo! That makes me even more excited because I'm going to have a Shizu-chan to bother~!

And tomorrow [livejournal.com profile] stellawind  is coming to visit! Yay!

Well, that was interesting. I originally had an entire other entry to make, but that can wait. Today was a lovely day, with gorgeous weather. Had a nice dinner with Emily and her friends. Then, I came home to find that we had a gas leak. Our downstairs smelled like gas. We were kind of freaked out, so we called the local, non-emergency fire department number to see what they suggested. They said that we should call 911, so we did. The fire department came out and the nice firemen turned off our water heater because it was leaking gas. They also turned off our furnace, just in case. Luckily, it's not too cold tonight. Downside, we have no hot water. Maintenance is supposed to to come by tomorrow to check stuff out. Hopefully, they are competent because the maintenance guy was totally copping an attitude with Emilia, when she was on the phone with him. Bitch please. We will take you out. And then Kristi went out and bought us some delicious French silk pie to make things better. All I have to say is that I'm glad this happened before spring break and not while we were all gone.

On the bright side, I get to leave for break after class tomorrow! Super excited to go home for a bit! I just want to relax and hang out with my friends.

Also, have a .gif, cause it makes me happy.



I love you Durarara.

ACen plans are officially a "go"! We're registered and we've got our hotel room booked. Now we just need to work on cosplay stuff. Only two and 1/2 months to go!

Watched ep. 8 of Durarara today. This series continues to make me happy~. There were some cute moments in this episode. I think my favorite is the fact that Celty goes to Shizuo for advice. Aww.

This weekend was decent. Friday night, everyone in the house went to see New Moon, cause it was playing for free at the Union. As I expected, this movie had much more angst than the last one. That didn't mean it wasn't lol-worthy though. The over dramatics were laughable. I never want RPattz to show off his pasty vampire abs again, thnx. I decided that I liked movie!Jacob more than book!Jacob (though I'm sure he'll be just as douchy as book!Jacob was in the later movies). I felt sorry for him. Also, Alice is still my vampire girlfriend. She's such a cutie.

Saw some friends this weekend, too. We went over to Alie's apartment on Saturday night for a little get together, where we played some games and watched some movies. Then, Jamie crashed on our couch Saturday night because she happened to be in Bloomington for grad school related stuff. We all went out to lunch the next day. Afterwards, in what was probably the highlight of my weekend, we stopped by Jamie's friend Kyle's house to play with his puppies!  Kyle and his boyfriend have a sweet cocker spaniel and a rather excitable boston terrier. I miss having a dog so much while I'm at school.

On a different note, this weekend I decided on my new cosplay for ACen. I'd been waffling between choosing Joker from Kuroshitsuji, Vincent from Pandora Hearts, or Chane from Baccano. I was leaning towards Chane because her costume will be easier and less expensive for me to make. Then, Friday night, I had a dream that I was Chane (and I was marrying Claire, win). I figured this was my subconscious telling me to go for the Chane cosplay, so that's what I'm going to do. I'm excited and wondering if I can't poke one of my friends into cosplaying Claire.

Also, started watching Durarara this weekend! I've been enjoying it a lot so far, even if I am still trying to figure out exactly where the series is going and what it's doing. It's from the creator of Baccano, so I have every confidence that it's going to turn out completely awesome! It makes me miss Japan, especially Ikebukuro, something desperate though. The series is set in Ikebukuro, and as I watch it I can sometimes recognize exactly where the characters are. They walk by a lot of the same places we did everytime we would go to Ikebukuro. It makes me want to go back there.

Midterms start this week. I've got two coming up and a third take-home midterm due a week from today. I'm unhappy about the take-home midterm though. It's for my Gender Studies class. It's supposed to be a 8-10 page essay. I think it's unfair of my professor to expect us to write something that long and that important in a week's time. We were only assigned it today! It would be okay if we had a longer time period to work on it, or that was one of the only things I had to do this week, but it's not. Ugh. I'm already looking forward to spring break and it's still about three weeks away.
