Journal Rules~!

Share
bowcatipeller
<(’.’<)[*]Rules and Need-to-Knows[*](>’.’)>


My profile is now public, but I still have some rules for you to follow:

1. Don't post anything mean or negative. (Why bother? I'll just delete the comment and shrug it off)
2. Don’t steal any of my pictures and claim them as your own (of me or otherwise). (Why? They’re not any good XD)
3. If I post an entry ‘friends only’, don’t share what I post in that entry! I made it that way for a reason.
4. Don’t bible thump me or try and drag me into your drama. (I’m non-religious, don’t try to convert me! And I hate drama, so don’t get me pissed off by dragging me into yours (especially if it’s something stupid).

Things to know:
1. I'm really bad about commenting an entry of yours, even if you post one to mine. 98% of the time It'll take a while for me to respond to your journal, if at all.
2. If you comment, please try to keep it to more than a few words.. I hate those kind of comments. (Like just “good luck” or “they rule!”).
4. I don't care if you don't have a LJ and post a comment anyway~ Just please try to post where I know you from (if I do know you at all).

-------
Update 10/2/2008: I'm officially just using this journal to 'document' certain events. I probably will end up putting off commenting back people until I forget about commenting them at all, so you don't have to comment if you don't wish. Maybe one day I'll get back into commenting others and getting more active, but for now I have a lot of other things to think about and do, so please understand. Thank you. Take care!

Just so you knows..

I've been thinking about just leaving LJ all together a lot lately since I rarely use it.. ever. But I still want to keep some type of journal and I like how I have this one set up. (I would just use the MySpace blog.. but I think it sucks! No cut for a lot of images or whatever.) The only thing now is that I'll probably rarely comment back people who comment me (^^;) Yeah, I'm already really bad about commenting back as it is (as people who replied to my last entry noticed). I'll only be updating my journal when something happens like an event, a new doll, or something of that sort. You don't have to comment if you don't want, it's mostly for me anyway.. I guess. I will try and comment those who comment me though.. I'm just a horrible procrastinator. Sorry. Love you guys though! I'm sad i don't talk to many of you like I use to.. though some on my list rarely spoke or commented me to begin with, haha. If you want to take me off your list, it's okay. I won't be angry or upset. I'll probably end up hiding my friend's list anyway soon.

Either way, I forgot to post the pictures I promised of Jaden.. for those who are still curious to see him, here's some I took a day or two after he arrived a few weeks back:
My little.. half joker??Collapse )

Best pep talk ever..!

Share
bowcatipeller
I originally posted this as a bulletin on my MySpace, but I thought "Why not post it here too~?"

Today a friend played a 'song' in the car when she was dropping me off. It was able to calm me greatly (mentally) and I was hoping that it might be able to help some others out there ^^ If you can, download it. (If you find it, send it to me!) Somehow, it's worlds different when you just read it and hear him speak.

For those who just want to read, here's the lyrics:

----------------------------

Kinda long, but very true pep talkCollapse )

-----------------------------

Now, hours after hearing it, I'm back to being slightly troubled in my mind, haha. Stupid I know since I let a lot out the other night to the same friend who drove me home, but I guess it's my fault for leaving so many details and a few big things out. But, if she's reading this now, I want to say thank you for listening anyway. It eased some of the things on my mind.

Also, I know I need to reply to entries of those who commented my last entry ^^; Sorry I haven't already. I've been really distracted. I'll do it within the next few days though!

Take care everyone!

I think quite a bit happened between my last post and this one. Nothing exciting, as usual, but I feel like typing ^^

Jaden (my newest BJD babeh) should be home soon! Hopefully within the next week. The guy said he would finish the tattoo, finish a few other commissions, then ship him out!! ♥ I can’t wait! I miss him dearly D: Oh! I finally got his pants in the mail~ thank goodness they arrived before him ♥ (I’ll be sure to post plenty of pictures when he gets here). Oh! I’m already planning my next doll. Well.. dolls actually *^-^* I plan on doing twins ♥ (Most likely the new Lucifer mold from AS). Though that idea might change if I find a mold I ‘can’t do without’, haha.

And if you haven’t heard already, I decided to move back home (with my mother) in November. I know this might seem silly or odd for most since I’ve been living out with roommates (my sister and her b/f), but this is the smarter move for these reasons:
Reasons for going back a step?Collapse )

I now can’t wait to move back~ though it’ll be odd since I haven’t been in that place longer than a few minutes since all that shit in Japan went down and I moved out. Oh well, I’m sure it’ll be great! (^-^)v Plus my mom said she’s been getting rid of a lot of stuff, so it shouldn’t be slightly cluttered like it was when I lived there. PLUS the room I’m getting is my little sister’s old room (she moved into my old room) is bigger than the room I have now! Not by much, but enough <333 I can’t wait for that either! (Though I’m sad I’m not getting a walk-in closet like if I moved out on my own *pouts*).

My mother and I have been hanging out more lately too.. we've been out to eat 3 times, seen 2 movies (Hancock and The Strangers~ I suggest both!), and went to 6 thrift stores XD <3 (I found 8 awesome finds at those thrift shops too!). I'm glad her and I are on such good terms. At least we know we won't get into stupid fights when I move back.

Alice and Tim Burton? What??Collapse )

Now, before I go, here’s some much need advice:


Take care! ♥

Gahh, I really hate work right now. They’re expecting the same quality from the first 5-6 months even though the last 2-3 months has been hectic!!!!!..! People are getting out of school, so there’s a good 2-3 times the amount of people running around my department a day and messing it up. I’m just grateful that I’m getting paid better than most other retailer jobs *pouts* If it wasn’t for that, I’d just go and sell my organs on the black market.

On a brighter note: I’m moving out on my own in November!! It’s just going to be an efficiency, but I think that’s perfect for me. (Especially since I’m kinda paranoid already of being on my own.) I won’t have to worry about what’s in the next room because there is no next room! Haha. Either way, I can’t wait and I really hope to have friends over a lot. (At least during the Summer or vacation for my little sister and her friends. Everyone else I know is too busy to come over more than once in a long, long while). Of course I'm going to need to check to see if they'll have a room available at that time. I should plan a trip to the apartments within the next 3 months.

Another bright note is that my newest BJD babeh arrived today! Jaden is his name and he is a SD sized mold from the brand B&G (Afra mold). I would post pictures, but he’s already back in his box ready to be shipped out for his face-up hopefully tomorrow <3 I can’t wait to see what he looks like! I hope it comes out like in my head. ♥

Guess that’s it for now. Take care everyone!

A-Kon 19!!

bowcatipeller
Okay, back from A-Kon and sore as hell! But it was the best A-Kon since my first one ♥ Since I can’t seem to just put all the details into one paragraph, I’m going to have to separate this entry by days~

3 Days of gropes, anime, and friends! ♥Collapse )

Writing a new path?

Share
rawr
Thank you nineveh_kun for that video. Gave me a whole new way of thinking of how I should, well, think. Wish I could see the rest of the movie though without having to buy it, haha.

Either way, things already seem to be turning around for me. Like yesterday I found out a semi-friend of mine from work began her own publishing company! She’s only working at Wal-Mart to make that little extra money (since most of what the company makes right now goes towards paying who works for her and things like that). She really encouraged me to try and start writing again. (I think because I kept randomly telling her stuff, scenes, and situations XD Gahh, I was high or something yesterday.. I think it was the cheesecake. ) I’ve tried to sit down and just start writing though, and even though I have a million different ideas, names, places, and scenes flowing through my head I can’t seem to piece any of them together to become a good story *pouts* Either way, she said if I finish a story and we both like it, then she’ll get it published for me!! Score! (Right?) haha, but if that doesn’t work out, I truly hope to get a job at her company one day.. I’d kill to work with books ♥

I guess that’s all for now~ Thank you to those who posted and almost instantly made me feel better *hugs and kisses for all of you* And A-Kon is just a week away, so I’m very excited about that! I’ll be sure to post when I get back from there. (HELL YEAH!! FOUR DAYS AWAY FROM WORK!!!! CAN’T WAIT! >w<)

Take care~!

Wapanese: Real or fiction?

Share
punchwerewolf
Okay, due to too much thinking time at work I began wondering: Wapanese, is it real or a word of pure fiction? What I mean is, are there truly Wapanese among us? This following “report” is using Wikipedia as a source for the definition of “Wapanese” people. (Link to definition)

Real or fiction.. you decideCollapse )

current mood: accomplished

Pandora is here and with face-up!! I love how she came out and couldn’t wait to post her here ♥ Please note that the face-up and photos are done by Shesta on BJDI.

I just can't believe it though.. this is the 2nd time I've unconsciously made a 'version' of an Alice in Wonderland character DD: Pandora is apparently the Cheshire Cat!

Info: Angell Studio Vera mold.



Pandora, the other white.. dollCollapse )

I hope you guys like her as much as I do! I already can’t wait to get my next doll ♥ ♥

Take care

Well today was interesting.. We went on the hunt for a park Maryann went to a few years back with an ex-boyfriend. Found it, yeah, but it wasn’t like she remembered (fully). Either way, we flew kites for a while before this medium-sized doggie came alone. He was so cute!!!! Very well behaved too. After calling the animal shelter we found out they tried catching that dog the day before. (We drove the dog to the shelter and the guy explained further how he couldn’t get anywhere near the dog without it running away. Sooo, I got some entertainment out of knowing we were just flying kites and the dog went up to us with no problem XD).

Oh, in other news, I sold my Lolita outfit in one night! I finally got to ship the items out today. (And if you didn’t know, I ordered a Vera mold from AS and got her a few days ago. I ordered her outfit last night, and I’ll be able to get her face-up in May! Yay!)

--------------------------------------

Okay, okay, now onto St. Patrick’s Day! Not as many people showed up as originally planned, but that was probably for the best since we didn’t have a ton of food or prizes. (Yeah, we played Bingo to win St. Patrick’s Day prizes XD I won twice!) We also went to go fly kites this day before everyone arrived that night ♥ I haven’t flown a kite in forever! It was fun!

Okay, now time for a few pictures to tie up the entry:
A few pictures for the dayCollapse )

Before I go, I wanted all of you to know I’m going to try and make a few more “101 Helpful Hints to Survive..“ lists soon! So please look forward to that! Take care ♥

EDIT: For now, I decided to delete the entries I did for this entry on the communities. Too many comments about the blouse when I already said I accidently ordered it too small. D: And I realize I need to take better pictures of the outfit, that's why I said it was a sucky photoshoot. Thank you for the comments though ♥ A few gave me a push in the right direction (^^)b

EDIT #2: Okay. After much thinking.. much, much thinking, I'm pulling out of wearing the Lolita fashion for now. For two reasons really:
1) I love cute and frilly things.. just not truly 100% on me (right now). (Though I honestly like how it looks)
2) I don't like how the fashoin has so many rules. I'm so use to just throwing on some jeans and a shirt and going out the door! Not worrying about my hair being done or my outfit being fully coordinated.

I don't know what people are going to think or say about this decision, and I honestly don't care. I'm still going to be on a few Lolita communities since i still love the fashion, but I don't think I'll be posting on them anymore unless I draw something Lolita. Thank you for those who supported me in getting my first Lolita and all ♥ I really appriciated it.

First Lolita.. Bad pictures =_=;;Collapse )

February 13th, 2008

Okay, checklist time!!:
[X] Order Lolita outfit (top, bottom, and all)
[X] Get sewing machine (thanks mom!)
[X] Restock some books for me to read when I finish my current one.
[X] Organize and total up how much my next BJD will cost
[X] Order English Gothic & Lolita Bible on Amazon.
[X] Flip off some girls my little sister doesn’t like.

Yep, all taken care of~! I can’t wait for my dress!! I’m so excited! Though work is annoying the hell out of me!!!! I’m trying to change to stationary. I think I’d like it a whole lot more there ♥


Well I’m very happy! Cole and Tony (the two guys who like me) both gave me bears for Valentine’s Day a few days ago. Both were my first gifts for V-day besides cards or small candy (^^)/ Though Tony kissed me on the top of the head when he gave me his *shivers and brushes hair out again*

Oh! Also, a few days ago, I did a mini photoshoot with Mitsu for Valentine’s Day~! I hope you like it: Link to Photoshoot.

Oh! Also.. also, a few days ago, I finished my 2nd 101 Helpful Hints list: “101 Helpful Hints to Survive Visiting Japan”- Link.

That’s it for now ♥ I’ll probably not update again until my dress arrives, haha. Take care.

~Joy
Okay, here's is my 2nd 101 Helpful Hints list ♥ It's not as joking as my Horror Movie one, but I think still pretty helpful. Enjoy~ ♥

Countdown is on!!!

Share
bowcatipeller
Ok, Time and Boredom cornered me and are forcing me to make an entry >.<

Me, my sisters, and our mom went to go see the remake of One Missed Call. Though I don’t think it was anywhere as good as the original, it was still pretty good. Probably a 3 out of 5. The acting was decent, though the story felt rushed slightly. I wouldn’t highly suggest it.. unless maybe you never saw the Japanese version.

ONLY TWO MORE WEEKS UNTIL I ORDER MY FIRST LOLITA DRESS!!! *squees and runs all around the room* I can’t wait! I really hope it looks good on me when it gets here ♥ For those who haven’t seen it, this is going to be my full outfit:
Clicky for full outfit pictures~! ♥Collapse )

--------

Ok, in other news, me and one of my friend Cole (from Electronics) went with my sister and her boyfriend to Steak and Shake last night. Haha, it was fun! Afterwards me and Cole went to play pool at his house and watch music videos. Two people are trying to hook us up, and I think it’s beginning to work =_=;; I think I’m beginning to like Cole. (I was told he’s beginning to like me too, but he’s too shy to admit it). I’m just going to wait and let it play out. If anything my “stalker” Tony is really annoying me! He calls almost twice a day and bothers me at work (not as much as before, but still enough)!! Gahhhh… I’m about to tell Jennifer to warn him to back off like she did for her sister *growl*

Either way, take care!! Much LOVE!!!! ♥
