this was a good year


Pensacon 2015 Sports Anime Meetup: Part 1

[More pics]

Shoutout to Daichi’s face in the first pic.

This morning’s adventures included chasing a bunny from the other side of the fence and creating a permanent art installation in the dining room which Bofur informs me he has entitled, My Mom Has A Disposable Fountain Pen That Is Blue But I Could Reach It By Stretching Up to the Top of the Dining Room Table And Using My Tongue to Wiggle It Close Enough To Grab And Now She Doesn’t Have a Disposable Fountain Pen That Is Blue Anymore.

Said art installation includes splotches of blue ink on the area rug in the dining room and blue paw prints on the carpet from the dining room to the kitchen and part way down the hall.

It’s really intellectually interesting.

Especially if you’re a Blue’s Clues fan.

If you ever feel like you’ve said something stupid, just remember that I once complained about the school play being the Little Mermaid because I thought Ariel was annoying and then two minutes later I told a friend I thought she’d be a good Ariel and she was like “what because I’m annoying” and then I remembered what I had said before…

I saw a lot of my friends on facebook and tumblr last night sharing that LoudTV interview with Eicca, all saying what a great guy he is. I didn’t have time to watch it, but still I ended up having a really nice dream about him in the wee hours of this morning.
I was at some kind of boarding school and I was fairly new and didn’t know anyone, but one day we were told that Eicca would be teaching for a couple of days. I was a bit shy to talk to him at first, since he knows my face I didn’t want to seem like an over-zealous fan girl. I think I muttered some kind of “Hei Eicca, nice to see you again…” on the way out after a lesson, but he was happy to see me. I don’t remember much detail after that, but he basically shared a lot of his wisdom, his wit, and kindness with me, and even took time to teach me whatever the subject was with patience and without putting me down - something my teachers in real life never did. He gave me the encouragement I needed, instead of adding to years of damage. His smile felt just as warm in my head as in real life, it got me through today. The best part of the dream was knowing that he’s actually that good of a person in real life.
I’m glad I got up and watched the interview before going to work, because I probably wouldn’t have remembered the dream if not. It was a good way to start a morning, because he’s such a positive soul. It’s crazy to think how he finds time to fit such wisdom into his head when he’s so busy, and following his heart, helping others, and being honest without being a prick (His impression of the “dat’s not Apocalypticuhhhh/metulz” fans made me choke on my breakfast though okay)
I don’t know how many times I’ve said it in my life - thousands probably - but the world needs more people like Eicca. It’s hard not to get too sentimental when I think about him, his passion for life gave me much to aspire to when I had nothing else, it gives me even more to aspire to now I have less dark clouds in my sky. If I could be a quarter of the person he is some day, well fuck that would be amazing. I’m not into hero worship, but he’s the closest thing to a hero I’ll ever have, other than my mum. “Never meet your heroes because they will disappoint you” they say, well Eicca did not, so it’s clear he’s just a guy from Vantaa! But my cod what a guy from Vantaa. I’m sure anyone who’s known me for a while knows that we share a serious love of cuddles. He started that trend when he first met me properly, and he found himself comforting a depressed 15 year old stranger in the middle of a freezing December in the arse crack of London, not to mention after a long day at the end of a two week tour. He didn’t make a fuss, he didn’t try to push me away after a couple seconds, no, when he realised what was happening he cuddled me so tight and held me ‘til I was okay. Then the fucker only went and tried to make me laugh afterwards too. Remembering that story still brings tears to my eyes even as I type this, and that was over six years ago. I don’t know how well he remembers that even with his amazing memory, but I do know that he’s never failed to hug the bejeezus out of me since.
Ain’t nobody ever gonna convince me that Eicca shouldn’t be leader of the world. But you know what? The big oaf’s probably too humble for that shit.
Don’t even get me started on how good his and Apocalyptica’s music is. THAT’S A WHOLE EXTRA RAMBLE.

Oh, and look what photo is on my calendar this month eh?

1. Enough confidence to no longer feel the need to justify what she eats, who she dates or what she wears, not only to other people, but to herself.

4. A best friend who is like a sister.

5. A space of her own.

6. A good idea of what she needs in a romantic relationship, not just what she wants, or what she thinks she needs, and the willingness to explore different people and other ideas to find what exactly that is.

7. A closet of what she considers to be her “staples,” and among these things, something to wear to an interview, funeral, wedding, impromptu Friday night drink at a casual bar and dream date if ever someone were to call out of the blue.

8. The tact and grace to ask for a raise, a promotion, a change in a relationship or a date with someone she’s into.

9. The faith that she deserves those things.

10. A favorite coffee order, go-to restaurant for when friends visit from out of town, hairstyle that takes less than five minutes in the morning, “thank you” cards in her desk drawer, the print copy of her favorite book, and bedding that she is proud to show off.

11. A hobby that has nothing to do with drinking, shopping or somebody else.

12. The recipes for a number of easy meals memorized.

21. A relationship with her mother, even if it’s the decision that their relationship will be at least functioning, if not familial.

22. A passport, a sturdy piece of luggage, and the ability to pack the essentials at a moment’s notice should she be offered the chance to get away for a weekend, a week, or a whole new life.
