It has been awhile since I last posted, and even those last few posts haven't had much substance in general. I won't bother going into a lot of detail because it has been mundane and boring. So here is just a brief going on of what has been happening in the life of Mab.

Sister has officially moved out! Ah, so exciting! So relieving! Mom has cleaned the downstairs and wowow in one day, it was cleaner than it had been in FOREVER. Well, since August when Claire moved home. She also found the box of old cameras that Edgar's uncle gave Claire. I wand to get them fixed up and play with them oh my gosh I know film cameras are out of date and expensive but hnnng it would be so hipster much fun to take pictures with them! They're all super classy looking as well.

Claire took Elle with her instead of Kailan, so now I am saddled with a needy dog that doesn't understand personal space. It's fine when she's calm (like right now, she's sleeping next to me). But when she's not, it's IMPOSSIBLE. That and Molly isn't too fond of her and so she won't come near me most of the time when Kailan is around. I just want my kitty cuddles ubuu

January 4th-6th was Anime LA, which was just a chance for me to hang out with people I normally don't hang out with. I didn't cosplay--I dressed up fancy for photos on Sunday, though. My pink wig STILL hasn't arrived (I ordered it December first, delivery date was projected to be December 20th-January 9th. Um.) so I couldn't do Gunnerkrig!Annie. Also, no longer felt like doing Jack Frost which was too bad because I spent like $14 on the wig so now I have this unstyled silver wig kicking around. Oh well.

Around the 5th or so I noticed this rash appearing on my right arm. Thinking nothing of it, I carried on. 15 days later, it has since spread and now I'm starting to worry about it. It's across both shoulders/clavicle, up my neck, and has now progressed down to my hips/back. THE HELL. And now it's starting to itch! I don't know how I got it. My mom thinks it might be the pets, but I got it before they started sleeping in my bed near constantly, and I never had an issue with them when they DID sleep in my bed. I should probably wash my sheets though. I have since changed my towels and washed all my clothes since that time. Have an appointment with the dermatologist on Wednesday. Ugh. I'm die.

I don't know if that dry patch on my face is part of the rash or just part of the dry skin I've been having all over my face due to the face cream I have to use. Ugh my life.

Oh that reminds me I owe the dermatologist $30 still because my insurance didn't cover it all/it might have been because I canceled an appointment less than 24 hrs before the appointment and you get charged for that/it was originally $20 but I forgot to tell my mom and it has since gone up whoops.

I have a warm puppy curled up against one side of my leg and a hot cup of tea on the other. It is a very warm leg.

Okay so what else.

Bought fabric for my next dapper day dress! I just need to buy a pattern. I'm going to pick through Vogue and Butterick on the 1st/2nd because Joann's is having a giant sale. But I also have this really cute Simplicity pattern that I'm tempted to use, though I don't want one that is so narrow. I did buy 4 yards of fabric, though. If I go with one with too much flare, I might not have enough. There was a very cute vogue pattern I saw that I might get. It has a dress and a bolero. Though I also really like this one so if I see it I might nab it... I love pattern sales oh my goodness. I also bought this really cute hat pattern so I need to buy some red felt for that. Or use more of my brown fabric and get a red accent. But! Xavier is going to come with me! And so will Justin and probably Lisa. Diego and his girlfriend might come as well. Justin and Lisa won't be dressing up though ahaha bums

Xavier texted me yesterday saying that Justin Crast (one of our supervisors) called him into his office to ask if we were indeed dating. Because apparently several people told him about us? Which bothers both of us because, what, did we inconvenience you so much that you had to go out of your way to tell one of the higher-ups? We weren't exactly 100% discreet while at work, but we still kept everything professional and he still treats my cash outs just like any other MC. Yet still people had to have felt bothered by us enough to go and tell Justin. That's weird, right? Ugh it kind of frustrates me. Xavier didn't ask who it was that had told Justin, but I figured he wouldn't have told anyway. I'd like to know. To just go up to them and go "really? Our personal life outside of work concerns you that much?" Whatever. The overall result of that being that we no longer have to be discreet about it (we kept it to ourselves before because Xavier is cash out lead and therefor a higher position than I am). So, that's nice.

In other news, jobs are open at the hotel! I think I'll apply for concierge, since I have no "hotel front desk" experience (and a preferred candidate would speak Spanish fluently guh). Though I suppose it wouldn't hurt to apply for that anyway. I'll have my mom help me spruce up my resume tomorrow and get that turned in.

When August rolls around, I'll be moving out to Chicago with Tiffany! We'll be there until mid December. I'm so very excited about this. (hah look Lego Discovery Center in Chicago is hiring right now!) She's going to attend the sister school to her current university for one term.

Ugh my chin itchesssss I itch all over I hate this rash asldfkj rolls around and dies

With Motorcity over, the fandom has come up with two new ideas to keep the fans active: Motorcomic and Motorjam. The Jam I am quite nervous about because it's a very intense weekend of creating a game. I'll be writing for one (hopefully!). It's going to be February 8th-10th. I'm hoping that they'll announce our teams before so I can at least get a head start on plotting in case I have to work those days? I won't know for another two weeks if I will or not. Ugh.

Motorcomic, on the other hand, is going to be VERY exciting! Things are finally start to kick into gear. We're allowed to pick up two prompts, and so I've claimed a couple of fun ones ;) I had to drop two I wanted to do (one I might not pick up again, the second I likely will). The first one I've got is focused on the relationship between Kane and Mike, and how Julie viewed it (being Kane's daughter and all). Already got some good plotting done with my cowriter :) the second prompt is that someone pops up claiming to be Mike's father. I started to get ideas this morning, but I am going to be the only writer for that one it looks like. Though I will likely be turning to Wrexie and Rutella for assistance. If... Wrexie actually confirms. She's been on skype, just not on the forums... Hm. I just want to get STARTED ALREADY!

I should type up my stuff for the Mike's father prompt and share it. Yeaaaah.

Whelp i'm going to go wash my face and head to bed. i need to get my oil changed tomorrow. I should also really get back to cleaning my room...

PS I GOT A CHROMEBOOK. IT IS TINY AND LIGHT AND RUNS ONLY ON CHROME (no harddrive) AND SO PORTABLE AND I LOVE IT.

PS2 I need to think of a tag for whenever I talk about me and Xavier because, you know, I tag almost every other aspect of my life. Whoops.

Okay so while my internet is down aka I can't just be distracted by my tumblr I shall update really quickly like!

I am going to be very spotty on here, because the next month is going to be long and a lot of work and I will actually need to manage my time. Which is something I've never really done, like studying. It will be interesting to see if I can pull this off, and how much of my sanity is in tact when April is over my bank account will certainly help in restoring my sanity ;D

Got hold of the company finally! They reset my password (after she gave me the test codes I needed right away), and then she also set up a meeting with the two families I couldn't because of the Spanish language block. Um. So it's going to be busy busy busy! I need an Effie Trinket to help me manage my time really.

I almost did break down in the middle of Panera though. I got off two hours before my tutoring session so I went to Panera to get some food because all I had for breakfast was a banana and an apple, and then some cracker sandwiches during my break. While I got everything resolved, I just felt completely overwhelmed thinking about "how am I going to get this all done?! What if this-and-this doesn't happen? How am I going to reschedule all these shifts?" I don't know. But my first time cards are due soon even though I did things out of order so I might not be paid for anything this month. Who knows. They have yet to get back to me...

And it turns out we're doing Easter at our house. Which just means that I will have to be social with family. It will be the first easter in like... three years that I will be present for? Last year I was at a cosplay gathering, then the year before that was Disneyland, and the year before that was An Cafe! Do not regret any of those events in the slightest. But this year I'm not doing anything but working.

What else.

I am up later than planned but that is okay.

I had such an interesting dream this morning. Normally I can tell when I am dreaming and accept it, but this dream I had I was honestly convinced that it was real. Well, I say real but I mean dream!me thought I was watching an anime. And I loved the soundtrack and really wanted to download it. And I wanted to cosplay the girl. I remember her outfit well enough that, if I feel brave, I might attempt to make it I don't know how I feel about sewing a tutu/petticoat though. I don't remember a lot of the character's names, but one of them I am convinced is named John. And the snotty girl is named Kathleen. I know this for a fact, and it won't be changed. The main boy was named Neko and no matter how I think to change it, his character is set around it being 'Neko' (probably because I thought this was an anime so the name seemed okay but now I am half going NEKU and also NIKO). The girl, whose outfit I want, is named Priscilla, but everyone calls her Scilla (skilla). Why, I don't know, but again that's how it stuck in my head.

I'm not going to talk about it now because I could go on. But I will make a writers of yore tumblr and then talk about it there. Because I can.

I don't have anything else to say. I am going to give you a 6-word story. Maybe one day I will have time to actually write. Though I've been spending most of my free-time reading.

Cover his eyes to conceal lies.
