20 things before 20

18 May

Hello everyone! So I have a 20 things before 20 list which is a list I compiled of 20 things to do before I turn 20 this September (19 to be specific). I have some time before my birthday so this list is to help me go through things that I would never do if I didn’t have a timeline. So here is my list:

1. Finish my embroidery project.

2. Read Watchmen.

3. Buy an iPad 2… enough said

4. Go to Animethon 18 which is on Aug 5-7 this year. I will be planning to go for only one day I don’t think I can get off work that easily.

5. Finish Wa-loli Kuro outfit. I started this project 3 years ago and have never finished it better late then never right?

6. Obtain a mushroom farm… kinda like this:

7. Pay mum & dad $100 from my first paycheck as well as my brother $100 (cuz I owe him for all the lunches he’s treated me to) and for my little sister $40 (she complains that she doesn’t have money all the time). Hopefully this one will be soon. ^-^

8. Get a library card… since I’m an adult I have to go get my own library card but I’ve just been lazy to go get one… I will get one though.

9. Start Youtube videos… something I’ve been wanting to do since last year but never had courage or time to make videos and put it up. I will do it for sure!!

10. Determine birthday present wishlist. I know that the iPad is on this list for a reason…

11. Determine 2 year financial plan. Since I plan to go to Japan in the upcoming 2 years I have to plan to make sure that I have enough money while travelling and such. Thus this plan… it’s going to take a lot of brain power that’s why I keep putting it aside.

12. Stay a neat freak… yeah this photo really shows how much I need to stay a neat freak.

13. Continue to study Japanese and Chinese. This one I won’t be doing anytime soon until school starts in September. I will be attending a Sat language class in Sept.

14. Try out a different martial arts even if it’s just one class I would like to try something different. Perhaps kung fu?

15. Attemp yoga/pilates. I would really like to try this but I don’t have much money to spend it on a class (financial plan) so I will learn from a book/video from the library (need library card) or Youtube is a great resource as well.

16. Try food from Sbarro, Thai Express, and Taco Bell. I just want to get out of my usual going to McDonalds or Subway to eat. I never try different foods so here are three places great to try out my taste palette.

17. Go to a spa. I have never gone to a beauty salon so I would really like to go to one. Perhaps from Eveline Charles.

18. Go on a staycation. I am planning with my brother and sister that we should go to the car museum in Wetaskiwin and possibly the Aviation museum in Alberta. But other things for a staycation is attending Capital X (summer amusement park) and Heritage festival (showcasing different cultures from different countries) as well as Animethon of course.

19. Play Spyro: Ripto’s Rage (PS) and finish Pokemon SoulSilver (DS). I have not finished these games and would really like to for sure.

20. Attempt to make curry flavoured popcorn. I heard about the elusive curry flavoured popcorn and since there is not a big chance to come across curry flavoured popcorn I might as well make it myself.

I will be updating every time I finish an item on the list and there is no set order to complete the list as long as the list is completely finished before I turn 20.

Anime Festival

12 Mar

Hello everyone! Just wanted to let you all know that I am attending an anime festival today (not dressing up sadly). So I will just show you a picture of the event. There will be lots of photos up tomorrow for sure as well as in the future things to do to prepare for an anime convention.

Soba Bowl V

BTW, all the funds raised at this event will go towards the Stollery Children’s Hospital!

Only one truth

7 Aug

And that truth is that I am leaving the blogging world…

Joking joking I wouldn’t leave but seriously I might have to soon (darn you school) so I probably can’t update as much as I possibly can. I will do my best either way!

But I wanted to talk about Detective Conan. This is the anime that I have been watching lately and I always have fun trying to guess who the criminal is and why it is that person.

If you ever have time I would recommend this anime as it is totally full of mystery fun (and has more that 500 episodes).

Forgetfulness

9 Mar

Yeah… I’m sorry I didn’t post my exciting news yesterday…. so much work to go through before the big event!

So this great event that is happening this weekend is Soba Bowl IV Anime Festival!!!

I’ve never posted anything that I was an anime fan but I’m out of the closet now… I’m a HUGE anime fan! I hope I don’t lose any readers just because I’m an anime fan….

More information on Soba Bowl is that it’s in the fourth year of putting on this event. Their website is currently down so I can only link the Facebook group page.

I used to be an executive member when I went to high school but not anymore… still I’m an advisor which is kinda cool. ^_^

Anyways, I am in artist alley/avenue this year so I get to sell some stuff that I made. These are the things that I have been working on and am going to sell. ^_^

I don’t know if you can tell but it’s a bunch of pencil cases. There are two types that I have with a variety of colors. ^_^ So regular solid color and an asian brocade… man those were expensive to get. But I hope to sell a bunch of them to cover the base costs. ^_^ At least they were fun to make. I also have two Domo-kun pencil cases but I don’t have his face done yet so I can’t take a photo of him… sadly I hope to get him all done. Well off to prepare more for the festival now. So sad that I don’t have that much time left to finish anything. Go fast as possible time!! So glad to get this news off my chest. ^_^
