After Thanksgiving Bustle

It is currently the Sunday after Thanksgiving. My hopes of doing some Friday after Thanksgiving shopping never happened, nor did my goal to get some driving practice done.

I’m not sure what all I want for Christmas yet, but I do know I want a heater, and a few less pounds, some rent money, and other things currently slipping my mind. I have a tv waiting at my dad’s, and I’m trying to save for a Wii (which ain’t going well…). That and a bookshelf for the mini-collection I have.
Monday starts the last week of classes for the quarter, and I have a capstone drawing I just started, and one more to go, before at least Thursday. Something tells me I’m going to be spending a considerable amount of time in the art building till then. I only have two exams, but drawing class is going to be a pain in my butt… after that the main worry is trying to find some more hours at a job to help stave off unexpected expenses or something in between the month I have off from work.
So, Tuesday night, I’m going to look for a Holiday job. My roommate says that I’m in the right place with living in Columbus and all now. I’ll very likely bum a ride off of one of my brothers to go up to my dad’s, and possibly over to my mum’s to pick up a sewing machine. Next quarter I’ll be joining the cosplay club, after all.
I have finally been reunited with my precious furisode (long “flowing” or “swinging” sleeves kimono). Once I can fit in it a little more properly (I’ve chunked up a tad) and maybe find a way to finish getting all of the accessories, I’ll be posting pictures. It’s very pretty, though there is an even more gorgeous one very similar to the one I almost had. The problem? I don’t exactly have $1k for a set… There’s also a pretty kusudama (flower ball) patterned furisode that no one has bought up yet. Oddly, this one I thought was downright ghastly, two, actually, have sold…
I also managed to pick up my awesome Ai Enma cosplay. I’m about the only person to try the kimono outside of Japan and get it decently right. I’m going to have to put on the poorly done kimono me and my mom made and take pics. Comparing it to having an actual kimono now, and thinking back, it’s a worthy and embarrassing first effort.
Anyways, hopefully I’ll finally be getting on that web comic I keep talking about. It’s based off of a dream I had sometime mid-October. I had another dream last night. It really freaked me out, but I thought I’d tag it on and give the first story a little more beef. I’ll also be going through and remembering other elements that’ll help, too. I just wanted this first scenario to be pretty simple, with little substance but some decent characters, but I can’t just do that, and it has taken on a life of its own.
Just updating, over and out.
