Emerald City Comic-Con 2017

So I drove to Seattle from my little city Bend, OR on Thursday, about a 7hr drive there (7.5 hrs on the way home :/)  I stayed with @ninaf who lives just outside of Seattle.  We hung out that night and didn’t go to bed until after 1 a.m. 😳The Panel:  Our plan was to get to the Convention Center by 8:30/9:00 a.m. which we did. It was interesting that there didn’t seem to be much ‘security’(I could have taken my flask :/), we entered from across the street where we parked in a public parking garage and entered in at the 3rd floor.  We probably could have gotten in Sat. no problem even without a Sat badge!  Anyhow quickly found the line for the Outlander panel – SO many people!  They let us in at about 10:45 and me @ninaf and 2 of her friends (that are ‘normal’ fans) found some seats – we were second row far left of the stage – right where the fan questions were left of the stage.  I wanted to ask a question – Sam could you please sit back I can’t see CAITRIONA!? In front of us was a slew of moms with their babies – so cute – one started fussing and Cait actually looked over to them with her awe concerned face – she clearly LOVES BABIES! ♥  You can just see it in the video briefly at about 14:32 min. I am a huge Cait fan so I was Screaming and standing when she came out and thought we were doing pretty good there, then Sam came out and omg decibels! They sit down and Sam won’t sit all the way back on the couch, I don’t know why, and he was blocking my view of Cait, I could only see her on the screen or if she moved forward or back. 😒 I didn’t take any pics, cos I just wanted to be present and absorb the experience, (one of @ninaf ’s friends did though so we’ll post as soon as we get them). One observance is they both looked tired, but ready to 'do this’.  I loved the panel, I thought they were very comfortable, there to have fun and engage with us, I liked the questions asked and quite a few of mine were answered. Caitriona was taking the lead quite a bit but I think her wit is a bit quicker than Sam’s (I’m a taurus and we tend to slow think sometimes) but it gave him a chance to play off of her which I feel they do quite a bit probably. They seemed very in tune with each other.  Next on the agenda was the autograph session.  We got there @ about 12:15 for the 12:30 and were turned away- too full come back at 4.  Well cool, we can at least eat, since we didn’t have any breakfast so we had lunch and drinks. Met up with @ourrubygirl and her daughter (normal fan), nipunad on twitter – sorry don’t know your tumblr and with ninaf and her 2 friends (side note – they were so funny before I even got to Seattle they were concerned that ninaf would invite someone from online who she had never met to stay at her house.  By then we had talked on the phone and friended each other on facebook so they had to facebook stalk me to give their approval – whew, glad I passed). 😘Photo Op!  Ugh, okay this is where we realized that this poor little comic-con was absolutely NOT ready for this Outlander fandom and where everything really started to get behind schedule.  I envy the Sat photo op participants, looks like it was more relaxed and not as rushed as Friday's– READY click NEXT! I know people have been dissing the posed photos, but after being 'there’ this is what I feel, I think SamCait enjoy the poses somewhat, cos’ otherwise the way it was with many of us on Friday we just walk in, stand next to them, click and we’re out, so I could see that for sure getting tedious AF for them, they seemed to have more fun on Sat with it – because they were allowed to also.  Anyhow the Friday photo op was close to being a complete clusterfuck, but the gestapo staff pulled it off.  There were other people there, apparently there was more than just OL there 😉 that would be like “What is this line for with all these people?” And we’d be like Outlander, and they just go off mumbling wtf is outlander? Funny. I walked in for my 'Team Outlander’ photo and I was wearing opal earrings from Mexico and Cait says to me “oh I love your earrings” Me: thank you – and I’m beaming so fucking hard I can hardly breath! So I’m 5'1” - yeah – I’m holding on to them for the photo mumble thanks or something I fecking don’t remember, patted Sam’s back turned and looked up OMFG this guy is TALL! I have a friend that is 6'7”, but Sam seemed much taller than that, I think it’s his massiveness or something IDK. His leather jacket is really soft btw.Okay NEXT – while I go back in line for my Cait only photo, ninaf goes downstairs to get in line for the autographs – good thing too since they almost turned me away by the time I got down there!  STEP OFF BITCH I WILL GET MY CATRIONA EFFING BALFE AUTOGRAPH!!!!  So by this time we are beyond hot – it was so hot in this place which wasn’t even at the convention center, everything but the panel was at the Sheraton next door.  Note to self Bring water bottle, we learned a lot of should'ves…. So there was quite a wait for this, mainly because Caitriona was still upstairs READY click NEXT! And they could only do the Sam only autographs which there weren’t a ton of apparently😁

The way they had it set up Cait first then Sam, so we had to wait for Cait to appear.  We were in the 'overflow’ line outside of the main autograph room, but could see in there a bit, we saw the lights go out, didn’t hear the comments @sileas84 mentioned, but too funny.  When we finally got to the 'room’ wow, so I am a diehard Caitriona Balfe fan, I like Sam but am not an over the top fan like most… I have to say seeing him up close and personal I COULD NOT take my eyes off of him, he was so 'cute’ doesn’t do it justice, I seriously have no word/s for it.  He was so funny and gracious and flirty with the women and NICE, very tan too, yeah, I kept running into people as the line snaked around trying to just watch him, I even almost got kicked out trying to sneak a pic – damn gestapo staffers.  So finally get up to Caitriona, um effing goddess.  She had quite the stash of gifts, I had considered giving them something but didn’t want to burden them with too much stuff and if they truly just give it away well… So I opted to give her a love letter as I call it, from me.  I didn’t know what to 'say or ask her something’ so I mentioned that I have a head shot autograph of Simon (her friend Simon Kassianides) and I can add hers to it now and she smiles and says “oh cool, I just saw him a couple of days ago!”  Me: heehee. JHRC I’m such a dweeb.  I didn’t get a Sam autograph cos’ they had sold out by the time I got online to purchase, I coached ninaf though to make sure to smell him so we could report back, since we both forgot to at the photo op :P  So we float out of the room and out into the main area and I finally just started screaming I was so excited – I got to talk to Caitriona Effing Balfe (even if it was brief)  I am so so glad I did this! 

After this was all done it was getting close to our dinner plans for meeting up with other tumblrs, so we eventually got to the restaurant.  How fun to finally meet some of us.  As we came into the room I immediately recognized @rainmanjdog and @mommydog67, we had been chatting while in line for our Cait only photo and didn’t know that we were part of the tumblrs, so funny and we all almost asked each other but didn’t want to risk it – so sad.  Great night hanging with everyone, best story goes to @valkyrie1969 I still chuckle just thinking about it.  So where is the photo of us pointing at the 'Meet and Greet’ room @pentwhistle ?

Overall impression of SamCait – they are two of the most genuine, engaging, fun, cool, nicest people.  

Overall impresion of our tumblrs – we are some of the most genuine, engaging, fun, cool and nicest people.  

Smartphone chronicles.

I was without a phone for almost five years. Prior to that, I had a dumb phone that my parents got me and forced me to carry all the time.

I never really cared about texting. Or calling.

My friends know that if they text while we hang out, I walk out.

I don’t tolerate that shit.

Husband doesn’t have a phone too. When we hang out, we hang out. We talk when we eat dinner, we talk when we chill.

Since I found out I was pregnant, I decided to get a phone.

We have home phone and I missed a call from my obstetrician. I was expecting a call regarding the pre fetal tests and to find out the sex of the baby.

Drove me nuts.

So the following day, I bought a phone. A smart phone.

Oh the wonders.

I love how I can tumblr whenever, yelp whenever, Facebook whenever, text whenever, google whenever.

It’s been almost two weeks. I love it, no doubt. The world at my fingertips.

But lately… Ugh. All I want to do is fidget over the phone! Check messages! Look at the screen!!! I hate it. It’s like it’s controlling me.

So I made a rule. Smartphone is for calls only. I lived without texting anyway. And browse the web only when necessary.

Ok, now back to regular programming.

‘I’m coming home. Coming home yeah. 달려갈게 네게로. I’m coming home all alone. 하지만 지금은 나 홀로.’

Silence…

Ugh, why does it have to be a Monday, I really don’t feel like going to school. I turned over and grabbed my phone from the nightstand, and began checking over all my notification.

‘Snapchat, just gotta send streaks. Instagram, nothing really new on there. Tumblr, some writers updated their stories, I’m bout to just read them during class. Twitter, One Love for Manchester. Facebook, who even uses that anymore. A couple messages no missed calls, though so I’m all good.’

10 minutes later I finally got out of bed and began getting dressed. I went to the bathroom to wash my face and brush my teeth, then I went downstairs to begin eating breakfast. I was hoping I would see my parents, but instead, I saw a plate of pancakes, bacon, and eggs sitting next to a folded piece of paper.

‘Nabi,

Sorry for not staying for breakfast. Junmyeon called your mother in early and Yifan ended up sending me on a ‘run’. Soohyun made you breakfast, (because we all know that I can’t cook for shit) so enjoy it. Have a good day at school.

Sincerely,

Your Father’

After reading the note I smiled and began eating, surprisingly finishing it all. I went back upstairs to began getting dressed, I picked out my outfit my favorite black and gold Adidas, white tattered jeans, black t-shirt, and a white cardigan. After checking out my outfit in the mirror, I personally deemed it fit to wear.

‘Wow, fantastic baby. Dance woo-hoo I wanna dance…..’

Starting a Video Health Blog

I decided to start a video health blog on my journey towards health and wellness. I don’t have a name for my blog yet but I want my name Skyler in the tittle I was thinking like, “Skyler & Trying” or “Skyler to the Limit” or …. something… I don’t know… Any good ideas?

I am doing this because I lost over 50 lbs with big support from people on tumblr and now I want to take it to the next level I just don’t really know where to start and I figured I could rely on you guys to help me fill in the gaps :D

As soon as I find a name for the blog I will create a new facebook and snap chat and not tell anybody I know about this blog because I will be a bit more open about my life than I am to people that know me… ugh… that sucks that I feel the need to be a bit fake around everybody to fit in lol… Whatever… Anyways, thank you guys SO much for the support thus far!

If anybody can think of a catchy name for me that would be awesome!

I want to get more fit, eat way healthier but also get on a better financial path and reduce stress in my life in any way possible… I dont know what a name for that Vlog/blog would be but I would like my name Skyler put in it if possible… What do you guy think?

Dan Howell-During the Night (FLUFF)-Submitted by SQ

(I had my friend SQ write this since I’m swamped with hw. Hope you all like it :))

You sat on your bed, on the internet as usual. Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook; anything. You needed a distraction from your bastarding family, locking your bedroom door and putting in your headphones to have some background noise. You heard a quiet tap on your window though. You take out your headphones and crawl over to the end of your bed, lifting up the curtain to see Dan crying at the bottom of the drainpipe.

“Dan what are you doing!? What’s wrong..?” you whisper, trying to stay as quiet as possible, not to disturb your parents.

“It’s just. Ugh I don’t know, I feel like shit. I need someone to talk to.” He wipes his eyes and sniffles.

“Wait there. I’ll let you in.”

“No I’ll climb. You’ll get bollocked if your mum and dad see me.”

“Don’t hurt yourself then.”

“Fine. Wait there.” He began to climb the pipe up to your room. As his face came into the light, you could see his tear stained red cheeks. His brown curls stuck firmly to his forehead and the bags under his eyes confirmed how much he’d been crying as well.

“Come on,” you say as you drag him through your window and onto your bed.

“Fucking hell you’re freezing! Why didn’t you call me? I’d have come to your house.”

“I didn’t want you walking in the snow when it was dark on your own.”

“So you decided to walk a mile and a half to come here you Muppet? Anyway, you aren’t going back out now. You’ll have to stay here. Put these on.” You throw him some of the clothes he let you borrow when you had a water fight at his place with Phil, PJ and Chris.

“These are mine! I was looking for this top. Thanks.” He says as he shivers into his pyjamas for the night. “Won’t your parents be mad?”

“Do I look like I care Dan…They won’t know and won’t care. They wouldn’t care if I just got kidnapped. It’s cool,” you insist as sit on your bed and throw the duvet over you both. “Now,do you want to talk about it or not?”

“Or not.” Dan snuggles into your shoulder and takes in your heat.

“It’s okay. Dan?”

“Yeah, Y/N?”

“You know you always have me, right? You know…I’d rather you have come here than stay at home.”

“I know. Thanks. You know…I think I love you…” he says looking up at you.

“I think I love you too,” you smile as you kiss him on the forehead.

“Good,” he giggles as you both lay down in your bed and cuddle. The moment was perfect, and both your problems vanished. You could only think about each other and what the future held. -SQ

I'M BACK!

When you start a blog online it’s always exciting yet scary at first. On one hand it’s an outlet for your thoughts and emotions but on the other hand it’s like a public diary. You know the saying, the internet is written in pen not pencil. 

During my first year of college in 2007 I decided to start my Tumblr account to document the experiences I was having while learning to live on my own for the very first time. When I say I had it made growing up, I really did! My parents wanted us to focus on getting a good education. They’ve always said school is our job. With that being said, we never really had to do any chores. I moved out of my parents house not even knowing how to do laundry! 

Anywho, since 2007 I’ve been pouring my heart and soul into this blog.  A few days ago I realized that my account was hacked by someone who not only got into my Tumblr but also attempted to get into my Facebook, both email accounts, YouTube, AND Instagram.  If I’ve ever felt vulnerable, this was it. I felt so violated just thinking that someone would want to get into all of my personal stuff. Granted it’s online for the world to see, it is still MY stuff. 

Yesterday I received an email from the techs at Tumblr and they gave me the shocking news that they not only found who hacked me but also go my blog back into my hands. Unfortunatly, the idiot who got into my account deleted years and years of my thoughts, photos, and memories. Ugh it still blows my mind just thinking about it. Thankfully, the tech people at Tumblr are going to do their best to help me get my old posts back. 

If something was posted on this account that was in any way rude or disrespectful to anyone, I sincerely apologize.  I have hundreds and hundreds of messages in my inbox and sadly, those were all deleted as well. I hope you guys stick with me and help me get things running again. 

You guys are the best!

ugh i’m just so sick of all this social justice stuff. i joined tumblr for the fandoms, because i always saw funny posts from tumblr on Facebook so i thought tumblr would be this really fun place. sigh, i miss tumblr when it was more fandomy, i understand that discussing things involving social justice can be very educational and beneficial, but it just gets so tiring and frustrating, you know? people’s rights ARE important and it’s important that we advocate for rights for those who are discriminated against and those who lack them, and it’s important for us to support them. but not everything is offensive or harmful. people need to stop overanalyzing everything, which usually results in some shitstorm and very unhappy people. whatever, i’m just gonna keep on blogging and doing my thang
