Ready-ish To Roll

VidCon is really creeping up, and I'm finding myself scrambling to get ready. I fly out to Arizona on Saturday where I'm hanging out with some of my internet bffs for a few days before road tripping up to LA and Anaheim for the convention. Luckily, I've taken care of all video obligations, so I can relax on the trip, but my mind is still feeling frazzled. This entry is probably going to reflect that disorganization going on in my brain right now.

Prepared For The End

I had a dream last night the apocalypse came. I don't remember much about the actual situation. I remember I was wearing my red hoodie (lookin' fly), and my friend, Greg, was there, and I'm pretty sure there were zombies, too. But I wasn't freaked out. And I have a feeling I know why.

Ghosts Of Cigarettes Past

I went out for ice cream with an old high school friend a couple days ago. This girl (we'll call her Allison), along with one other girl (we'll call her Maddie), were my best friends senior year, but we all just sort of moved away and did our own things afterwards and lost touch. Some of my favorite memories are of the three of us driving around in Maddie's car on Friday nights, smoking cigarettes and ending up at places like Playworld Pizza (a knockoff of Chuck E. Cheese's) or the ice skating rink.

Fragments

I've mentioned several times in several posts I have this problem where I start what are supposed to be lengthy blog posts and then just quit. Sometimes it happens after the first sentence, and sometimes it happens after a few paragraphs. Why? Sometimes one and sometimes several reasons. Sometimes just writing a few sentences releases the subject from my mind. Sometimes I get overwhelmed and realize I'm not prepared to tackle things. Sometimes I simply realize the topic is not one I want to address. Sometimes I'm bored with either myself or the situation. And sometimes I just remember there's ice cream in the freezer and, well, sometimes ice cream > blogging.

Nothing But Time

The news about not being able to go to Korea sort of threw my mind and body into a shock, which I think I'm still settling down from. It was something I'd been working towards for nearly two months, preparing documents, doing interviews, and even being placed. The date was on my calender and, essentially, I thought I was set for work for the next year or more.

Crazy Britney Is Back!

Let me start off by saying I hate The Smurfs. I never watched the TV show (it was a TV show, right? I don't even know) and I've never seen the movies, but I don't think I need to to know that some little, blue, talking potatoes are going to freak me out. I think I also saw a talking CGI cat in the previews. CGI animals that are meant to look like real animals always end up looking like too-smooth, too-fluid, alien-esque creatures with too many facial expressions. And so, when Britney Spears' new song for The Smurfs 2 soundtrack came out, I didn't even bother listening to it.

Director: "Okay, now cackle while Mommy gets electrocuted."

Not With A Fizzle, But With A Bang

I've been feeling pretty good this past week. I'm done with doctors until later this month, and there's no use worrying and pacing about things right now. Hanging out with Elizabeth during the days and staying up late with friends on Skype has been keeping me in good spirits, and both are definitely worth sacrificing my sleep schedule for. It's summer, after all, and there's no point seriously looking for a job until after VidCon anyway (although I've been tentatively searching), so I may as well live it up. (To me, "living it up" means playing games on Omgpop and Habbo till 4 a.m. with my home fries on Skype. I feel like I should throw a gang sign here.)

Pink For Me, Please

I finally got around to getting a 3DS. I was against them for a long time because this whole 3D phase the world is going through just seems so gimmicky and cheap. It also kinda hurts my eyes (the movies, especially) and makes me nauseous, but I don't like to admit to that much because it makes me realize I'm getting older. I knew I'd eventually have to get a 3DS, though, because the new Pokemon game in October is gonna be for 3DS only, and I also wanted the new Animal Crossing game.
