{14, April 2011}   And more updates

Wah. Okay.

Went to SheVaCon. It was rather amazing. Have an image of my costume:


I decided not to get the boots as they were too expensive. So instead I went for a cheaper alternative.

I’m most likely not going to Anthrocon because my money’s more focused on college atm.

I’m taking the SATs the first Saturday of next month.

Moving to Pittsburgh is probably out. I’ll probably… Just go wherever I have a place to stay during summers and breaks.

Got all my packages. Got a new battery for my laptop finally.

I’ve been playing Assassins Creed.

The girl that was a no-call/no-show has had a few people join her in the quit/fired option. One was fired due to falsifying paperwork. The other walked out. So everything’s really stressed at work now.

I’m running two dreams on Furcadia as well – I’ve gotten them up and running finally. Also, I’m participating in about two other dreams regularly.


{25, February 2011}   Preparations are being made!

Alright, haven’t updated in a bit… But basically here’s the run down.

I’m going to SheVaCon here next week, so things are a bit hectic right now. My costume is unfinished, so I’m probably just going to wear random clothes with the face paint for the character. She’s supposed to be more medieval/fantasy based but eh. Modern clothing will work until I’m done.

I’ll be trying to commission someone soon about the boots I need for her costume – but they’re not open until April so I dunno.

I may or may not be going to Anthrocon.

Also, I’m actually not sure if we’ll be moving to Pittsburgh or not. With how the weather’s been it might just be too cold. It’s still being discussed though. Who knows, we may just move a little south. Perhaps to Georgia or one of the Carolinas.

I’m supposed to be getting a ton of packages in the mail this week, before the con. One being a charger cable for my camera since mine went missing during the move. So when I get that, I’ll hopefully be able to get pictures up. The other is the face paint I’ll need. I’ve already got my brushes and the RMG paint for my ears. The brown’s done, waiting for it to set before adding the white.

I’ve been working a ton – one girl was a no call/no show twice, so she’s fired. Everyone’s working overtime to cover it. Yeah. Not fun. As such I haven’t had time to do any writing/character development except for just occasional things that are kept in my head.

Until next time!

Alright, so… Let’s see if this makes it easier for people to keep in touch and see what I’m up to. So to list things off for starters:

  1. I’ve been working a ton at my day job, which takes up a huge chunk of my time.
  2. Currently all writing has been put on hold because of some MASSIVE character and story revamping. I’m also compiling my current character database: I’m over 150 characters and still adding them.
  3. I’ve been working on a project on Furcadia – I’m almost done with this.
  4. I’m probably going to go to SheVa Con, which is a Sci-Fi con here in my city. Though, unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to have the costume I want. Not sure if I’m going to be able to afford costuming at all in actuality.
  5. I’m currently reading The Hunger Games

Also… Hm. I’ve several sites I’m a member of. One of those, currently, is Y!Gallery. As of right now, Y!Gal is experiencing a lot of problems and is searching for a Sys Admin.

However… To be completely honest? I’m not sure if the main Moderator really wants to find one or not. Why? Well…

  1. They waited until the last minute to ask the community for help.
  2. They apparently tried to search for outside help first.
  3. They’re using an extremely old system/program to host it.
  4. They refuse to give anyone ‘hired’ any compensation at all – DESPITE the fact that pretty much EVERYONE commenting has said that they would donate so that they could hire someone.
  5. Furthermore, it seems like they want to hire a sys admin LONG TERM to “Deal with problems as they occur” with, again, no compensation.
  6. They have refused all requests of people wanting to donate money to hire someone by saying “money is not a problem”.
  7. The idea of hiring someone temporarily, through donations, until someone else can be found, was shot down
  8. Several people are reporting that they’re repeatedly contacting this person because they CAN fix it or know someone who can. Yet they’re also reporting that they’re not getting any responses. YES, they’re probably getting flooded with messages. However, with so many people repeatedly trying to contact them at least ONE thing had to have come through.
  9. The one person who DID get a response said that they knew the program, was willing to do it for free, etc etc, but didn’t use the exact system. So basically they could update it and have it just like it was – but because they weren’t mac savvy they were shot down.
  10. While other mods are responding to questions/comments, the person who is mainly in charge of the site and is accepting the applications isn’t replying to ANYTHING. They’re not sending responses back to anyone. They’ve, essentially, dropped off the face of the earth.
