also i got a new phone yesterday

Yesterday, at that horror con I was working, someone anonymously sent me coffee, and it just now occurred to me that I probably shouldn’t have chugged it. I figured it was the shy dude who kept smiling at me and miraculously needing to use the garbage can by our booth every fifteen minutes, but it also could’ve been the dude who was just sitting in a chair and staring at me for an hour.

But I got two girls’ phone numbers (on accident, I swear), made two cool new taxidermy connections, got three job offers, and (lovingly) called one of my favourite sculptors a fuckface. So, hey.

LJS for Ceci (June ‘16) - Part 4

Translation note: I <3 this interview, I <3 Ceci. This part is the best, surprising names appearing everywhere.

Part 1 || Part 2 || Part 3

* * * * *

Ceci: Do you still have a dream to own a cafe like before? What kind of cafe would you own?

JS: A cafe with no customers. A cafe with only me as a customer. A cafe with no customers, where I can chat with my friends like now.

Ceci: That reminds me of ‘My Lips Are Like Warm Coffee’. (T/N: Eddy Kim’s song, recently remade into a duet with Lee Sungkyung)

JS: I drink at least three cups of coffee a day.

Ceci: You used to be unable to drink alcohol, right? But you had the experience of drinking a lot at once.

JS: There was a time when I thought I became more accustomed to drinking but it turns out that alcohol is just not for me. I only drink some champagne when I am with people I’m close with.

Ceci: Like Lee Sungkyung who suddenly visited today, you seem to be closer with female friends, like Hyoyeon and Kang Sora.

JS: Conversations with female friends seem to be deeper and more realistic. Like if you asked a guy ‘how was that movie’, he would reply, ‘it was fun’ or ‘it was cool’ and that’s the end of that. But a woman would start talking about ‘why that scene was acted that way?’ or ‘I particularly like that line’ so the conversation can continue.

Ceci: How did you become friends with Lee Sungkyung?

JS: From model era, we’ve been friends for around 10 years now. We weren’t close back then because Sungkyung is a good girl who goes home once the sun sets. I remember thinking that she was a person with a beautiful soul. When she started working as an actor, we became closer.

Ceci: There are a lot of dramas airing in the latter part of the year. Would like to make a declaration of ambition?

JS: It’s great that there’s going to be more good dramas to watch. Actually, before I decided on a project, (Kim) Woobin had asked me to do a cameo for his drama. I was going to do it but then had to tell him, “I’m sorry but our dramas are going against each other”. Casting is really one of the main points to attract people to watch the first episode, so as a drama fanatic, the combo of ‘Kim Woobin and Suzy’ is a must-watch. I always watch the dramas acted by actors our age, since I want to catch all those scenes that are especially pretty because we are at this age.

Ceci: It would be lovely if ‘Lee Jongsuk and Kim Woobin’ can become another ‘Jung Woosung and Lee Jungjae’ and continue for a long time.

JS: Woobin is the only same-age friend who has come with me from the model era so we became close, then we acted in ‘School 2013′ together. Among male actors, he’s the only one I keep in contact with. When returning to Korea, we announce our arrival to each other first. Whenever there’s news, we contact each other first. I think that this can be called good fortune.

Ceci: You also said that you like Lee Minho-sunbae just now, right?

JS: I didn’t used to have contact with Lee Minho-sunbae but when I was frustrated about choosing a new agency, he gave me a call. He also went through the same process so he understands that feeling of being emotionally exhausted no matter how you choose. He said, “If you need any advice, we can meet up.” I am really appreciative and thankful for his sincerity.

Ceci: You decided yesterday that you would sign with YG Entertainment. May I ask why?

JS: I had no idea how so many people got my private phone number, but many of them called and gave me various advice. When I returned to Korea, I was thinking about a place which could afford me a stable environment to focus on reading scripts. 

At that time, CEO Yang Hyun Suk gave me a call and directly asked, “What can I help you with?” So I said, “Allow me to only focus on acting.” Although a lot of people offered various terms and conditions, he was the only one to ask what he could do for me.

Ceci: When deciding your agency, was your role model Kang Dongwon a deciding factor?

JS: The fact that sunbae had chosen this company also gave me a sense of security, I guess. I always read the interviews of Cha Seungwon-sunbaenim and Kang Dongwon-sunbaenim. For me, the words of these people who had walked this path before me serves as good guides for my life.

Ceci: Do you read your own interviews?

JS: I read every single one. I may have low self-esteem but I also have a lot of love for myself. (laughs)

Ceci: One last message for the fans?

JS: I think this is first time I’ve made everyone wait this long. Since you’ve waited so long, I’ll try my best to make it worthwhile with quality acting. (ending the interview in a Macho Guy way)

Last October I drew a picture everyday to people I appreciate here on Tumblr and have thought about doing so this July as well. Btw, just have to apologize to the people who got an art back in October, just know you’re still awesome, but just want to be fair and give to new ppl this time… 😶

Hormones: Day 270; August 19th, 2014

Month 9, Week 39

So last night when I got home I was so drunk I passed out before I could even eat my food or put my phone on a charger. Like I got WRECKED.

Also, if you hadn’t noticed from the pictures, I got a new bra yesterday. My best friend lessamao was with me and insisted that I get sized because it would change my life, and apparently I’m actually a 38B? Like that really surprised me.

While we were out she also helped me put together my work outfit for Renfest. I’m gonna end up looking like a busty tavern wench and I’m really excited about it.

Ohmigoshohmigoshohmigosh!

So I just got a call from a principal of a job that I applied to YESTERDAY! It would either be for a ½ blend or a straight 2nd grade! She isn’t setting up interviews yet, this was like a preinterview. But we were on the phone for 23 minutes!

I’m hoping to get a call to set up an interview for next week.
Also, if I got the job, I would still get to live with my freshman roommate!!! So no extra house hunting!! :)

I was tagged by monkeybrainmama to post the last picture on my phone.

It’s an outtake from yesterday’s photo shoot, the obligatory I’m-over-this-now picture.

She had a great day at school yesterday–evidenced by her deep disappointment at not going again today–though the only story I got was how Grandma put tinkerbell bandaids on her because of her new shoes.

Oh, and also that she didn’t like having to stay still at nap time.

She was suddenly 100% done with naps a week or so ago. It hasn’t been as bad as I’d thought. Actually, I’ve kinda liked not having to rush out in the morning and rush back because of the nap schedule. It’s a whole new world.

Sorry for the ear worm!

PS–I love this little dress. Anyone with sewing skills want to make me a vixen dress too? I need one in my wardrobe.

News! And GOOD NEWS!

Hello, friends!

Sorry for being quiet! I am currently trucking through water color commissions and designing some new prints for my next con! The corgi plush is nearly done with production and the company is sending me the prototype to see if I want any more adjusting. I am also creating my first video for my patrons!

That’s not all! I got off the phone with an animation studio yesterday since I will be doing character design for their next featured animated film! It will be in theaters soon! I am so excited since this is my first feature film credit!

That gig will keep me very busy so I apologize if I am quiet for a bit! :)

So the other day this dude messages me on linkedin and asks if I’m looking for a job.  It sounded like a cool place to work for but totally in the opposite direction of where I wanted to be looking for jobs.  I figured, what the heck and I talked to him anyways.  We exchanged a few messages, and then talked on the phone.  I was still very torn about how good the job sounded and how shitty the commute was going to be.  It became very apparent to me that I could learn a lot working at this place and he was willing to teach a lot of stuff I didn’t know.  So I agreed to come out to his office yesterday and meet with him.  We spent 2 hours talking and going over my qualifications and what I knew and didn’t know.  He also got his senior engineer on the phone to talk to me and make sure I’d be a good fit.

I really didn’t go out there thinking I was going to get a job.  They seemed pretty impressed with me.  He ended up offering me the position on the spot and I accepted, for a lot more money than I’m making now.  So in 2 weeks, I’ll be starting my new job.  At a place that doesn’t know I’m trans, making more money than I ever have before, with the opportunity to learn all of the technologies I have never been able to get any experience in before.

This year started off pretty good but slowly turned to crap because of my knee surgery.  I thought this was going to be one of the worst years of my life, but it turned out to be pretty great.  I guess life owed me something good after that surgery lol
