What Am I Doing with my Life- Er, I mean Summer Vacation?

Yeah, that.

Within three days of my Summer vacation, I was already at a loss for what to do with my new found ample amounts of free time. I just had no idea what to do. All the super productive things I put off until after the exams were far too tedious, and all the tv shows I planned on watching and starting just didn’t seem all that interesting anymore.

Soo what HAVE I been occupying myself with, hmm? Chronologically, it went something like this…

I I watched all the recent updates on the anime I’m following, but y’all have heard enough about my anime addictions recently, eh? 😉

In no particular order: No Game No Life, Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, Akuma no Riddle, Ishuukan Friends/One Week Friends, Brynhildr in Darkness (don’t know the proper Japanese name >.< Le Alien One, as I call it with Alya 😛 ), Dragonar Academy, Haikuu!, and possibly others I’ve accidentally left out…

II Getting super hooked on one TV show- Once Upon a Time.

And I do mean “hooked”. Like hooked on rereading all of the Artemis Fowl books or the Harry Potter ones in one go, with not a single day without reading at least half a book. Yeah, that kind of obsession xD So I binge watched the first season in three days. And while doing so, put all me anime on pause, until I got a bit exhausted of watching episode after episode. So, when I started season 2 of it, I watched my anime along side it. And now, reaching ep 15, I’m a little not in the mood to watch it anymore, and have moved on.

But moved on to what?

III Back to anime! But it’s not like I’m watching seven anime at  a time, naw, I decided to start another NEW ONE. Mekakucity Actors!

And it’s pretty cool. I’m surprised. It’s a let down in the way Deathnote was; there was so much hype for it, and because of it’s excessive praise, I expected too much from it, and was disappointed. Just a tad though. I was told it was complicated, which it sort of is, but everything ties together PERFECTLY and comes full circle, so I don’t find it all that hard to follow. It also isn’t nearly as confusing as people make it out to be! Not one bit. That’s where most of the disappointment lies. So far. Yeah, it’s also an ongoing anime, and I’ve just seen the first ten episodes so faaar. For now. Let’s see how this show goes :3

(It’s a sci-fi, partially mystery, partially thriller?, kids with super powers, teen pop culture like Japanese anime show thing. I made it sound so terrible…Go check out a proper summary here, so I don’t feel like I just ruined any chances of you watching it just cuz of me…)

IV Well…I have yet to find out! I’ve moved on from tv shows, and I’m not in much of an anime mood, but I am starting to watch a bunch of movies from the eighties on Ayesha’s recommendations.

On the list, so far in this order, are: The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Pretty in Pink, and then a few more recentish films, like this one Kamil told me to check out called Keeping the Faith. It has Tom Daley from Night At the Museum in it :O Must watch!

V How could I forget this- MAH COSPLAAAAY!

I’m cosplaying as properly ish as I can without chopping my hair (as wigs are impossible to find in the right color here…) to yet just my second anime con! This one I do plan on going properly with my friends, and we are planning a proper group cosplay. Alya, Mnaz, Nahal, and I have put an insaaane amount of effort into our cosplays so far. It deserves it’s own post. With pictures, and everything ❤ And I’ll give it one too. I can’t wait for the actual con though! Just two days to go~ I hope it goes perfectly~

(I just bought my Liz and Patti guns today, with the spray paint and painter’s tape required to create the true Weapons look of those two sisters. I paint them tomorrow 🙂 And yuuup, our group cosplay is of Soul Eater, and I’m Death the Kidd!! #Symmetry )

(No, I am not going as Blackstar, soldgisdlkfjgdoirj!!)

[VI? While all of this is going on, I got back to Freaksworld, only to find that it’s just as empty as before, EXCEPT Freak’s back on the site, and he just made a new hang out- a Kingdom of Freak’s. It’s got all new people in it, and I’m the only oldie original freak there, plus Freak of course. (Pfft, the dude made a new account and wants to be called King now. Like I’ll ever call him that x3 ) I have also made an alt account! :O It’s just cuz I joined a Clan- the Fukushima one that Maya/Lizzie/Tidal started up a while back. She’s asked me to join all her clans every now and then, but I’ve always turned her down. This is the first time I actually considered it, and decided to try something new. I actually like it so far! I have the approval of Natsu for being Frostie, and I has a twinneh called Green~ I also found Am (Amnesia *buncha numbers*) from Freaksworld too! It’s pretty cool, even though the chat is dead recently cuz Tidal ain’t forcing people to join in as she’s stuck at her dad’s- The House of Terrible Internet. Plus there’s talking to new friends like SnowyEvil too. ]

Aaaand the Sun is rising now >.> I better go now!

Imma start watching the Breakfast Club now maybe? :3

Ah, how I’ve missed rambling on this here blahg ❤

 

DIY PaperGems & Crystals

As ive been very into the whole DIY thing this summer, and have done a couple projects in my free time, i thought id post links and my own instructions further adding to DIYs i found, performed, accomplished and whatever else. So i dont lose the links too, and so i can easily access all this stuff too.

So I found this amazing  blog with looaads of cute ideas and posts of DIYs called
http://www.minieco.co.uk/

and on it i found this wonderfully easy and pretty idea and instructions on how to make paper gems and crystals. Its super easy, looks super cute, and a fun way to pass the time. you could string these into a necklace, or a curtain if you have the time(which i totally have) and patience (what i lack), or put them in a glass/crystal bowl as decorations, or or… There are so many things you can use these for. You could also give them away as favors at a party for your daughters little princess tea party, or gift them to your friends. its honestly up to how creative you are.

This is one of those wonderful DIYs that you can easily pull off in 5 min or less and yet still manage to impress everyone with the outcome. Its a DIY that makes people think youre amazingly artsy, creative, and simply AWESOME for having managed to make something so impressive. Its an ideal DIY. easy to make. but still impressed everyone and makes them think you mustve put sooo much effort, time, and care into making it. Yep. my favourite kinda DIY. A Cheat DIY. =D

paper-gems

heres her original post= http://www.minieco.co.uk/paper-gems/

Now, first off, youll need to download a template which will tell you exactly in what shape you need to cut the paper to fold and glue into these adorable and uniform crystals. and you can download it here= http://www.minieco.co.uk/images/nov11/minieco-paper-gems.pdf or download it directly from this post by clicking on this= minieco-paper-gems template With the template, heres a photo to work sort of as ‘table of contents’ type thing (sorry, i have NO idea what to call it…) where each number on this picture coincides with the net design on the template. and i promise, its a whole lot easier to understand when looking at both the template and the picture… but here it iiis. basically, so you know which crystal youre making.

Template of gems table of contents

Cut out the net design. Fold along the dotted lines given in th template. Glue the little flaps in such a way as to close the entire crystal/gem. Aaaand youre done! =)

If your having a hard time copying the template, you could print the template onto your colored paper. Then cut out the net, and simply fold the folds in the opposite direction, so that the printed dotted lines are on the inside. simple.

These gems can be made even prettier (say whaat?! =O ) by maybe using printed paper, or if your a cheapskate like me(actually, none of this stuff is available where i live =/) you can paint or pen/ink floral designs, or doodles on notebook paper, or paint geometric designs or whatever by hand on paper and then use that. even newspaper could look cool =). you could also paint effects on each side of the crystal, like light is hitting it and shade the colors accordingly. you could add sequins or beads. its up to you.

You could spray paint the sides metallic silver or gold, like in the original blog.

silver spray painted paper gems crystals

You could spray paint with contrasting colors (green crystal, pink paint. purple crystal, yellow paint). You could use glitter instead of spray paint too (probably what im gonna do. oh yeah, i didnt say? i havent done this DIY yet =3 im planning on doing it today, but i got excited and wanted to post a tutorial type thing about it first. im weird  crazy, i know =P so yeaaah. Or use glitter as a design, a geometric one, or a diagnor checkered pattern would also look prettyy cool. yeah. stuff like this

make your crystals/gems look gemmier and more crystalline-y than ever! =)

Hope you (and i both!) have fun making these, and i hope they come out great! this seems super fun and easy and i cant wait to try it aswell. This would be pretty fun to do at a birthday party or a hang out session, just you and your girl friends or whatever, and sit around and and make these. [Then you could joke around about whos is best/worse =P ] It could be a cute little workshop, or a stall selling these home made cuties would be good at any fund raiser. You could do loads of things with them and with making them. Just have fun with it!

Greaaat, so i hope it all works out and you have fuuun doing it!
