Update time, and boy oh boy am I due for one.
One! School for the semester finally done with, and so far I have all A's. Just waiting on one last class, and hoping it's either an A or B just to have bragging rights. Now I don't have to worry about papers and homework, and it's just stressing about finding a job for now.
Two! Searching for a job sucks big time. It seems like no one around here will hire me. I think it's because I seem so child-like and young. Sometimes it's a curse to be looking like that when no one takes you seriously.
Three! Realizing I'm going to turn 21 this year, this makes me feel OLD. GAH. Planning out a Steampunk themed birthday party, why? Cause I freaking can!
And Four! I have becomming more of a nerd then I thought I'd be. With now participating in the activity known as Dungeons and Dragons, my nerd level rises slowly as I (even more slowly) progress as a Changeling Duskblade named Aseria. Our team consists of a pirate, a man who can manipulate the element silver, a crazy sorceror and a thief who nearly died the very first time we played. THE FIRST FREAKING NIGHT, GUYS. And now we find ourselves aboard a ship known as the T'Kara, in space. What fresh hell did we get ourselves into?!
With school semester's end, you know what that means?! Convention season! And hours of aimless crafting. Just being a derp in general.
1) CloverCon 2013
Jeez, this event.
This guy is a year in the making with my 4H anime club, and it's going to be just as insane and awesome as every past year plus more. We're having more awesome panels about more topics, including Dr. Who, Homestuck, My Little Pony (to some people's dismay or enjoyment), life in Japan and so many otaku topics it's not even funny. There's our big Silent Auction (thanks to for the donation of the plush Dante!) and even bigger then that, new for 2013, is the Live- Action Yu-Gi-Oh Duel! Filled with corny acting, villains with eyebrows that shouldn't possibly exist outside of Duelist Kingdom and characters with egos as big as KaibaCorp itself, make sure you prepare yourself 'cause 'It's Time To Duel'!
On a side note, I'm vending my wares there too, so if you're going, find me sitting at the 'Village Hidden in the Clovers' table at some point in the day or walking around (I'll be wearing the club t-shirt, an obnoxious green and white hat you can't miss and a camera slung around my shoulder). Selling cat ears, prints, sumi brush dragons too: come stop me to say hi or to fund my crafting addiction!
2) AnimeNEXT 2013
Amaterasu will be returning to AN '13 this year, but in a new look which all of you if you've been paying attention to my page will be familiar with.
Also coming along for the ride is Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and possibility of Kusuriuri The Medicine Seller from Ayakashi Mononoke or NyanCat. All of these can be switched between Friday and Sunday but Amaterasu is being worn on Saturday with the rest of the Celestial Brush Gods from Okami. Next year I want to try to get a full Brush God group but for this year, four of us will suffice (Amaterasu, Shiranui, Kasugami and Bakugami).
If you recognize us, feel free to stop us and chat and/or take pictures. We wont bite! Except maybe Shiranui, he's kind of aggresive! (lol)
This thing is as crazy as most of my other projects, save it's with two of my friends and I am diving into the deep end with this from the getgo.
I am now a leader, that's right, an ACTUAL LEADER, of a 4H Club. A Steampunk club called CloverWorks. So far as I know, we're the only Steampunk club out there, so a big hand for being the first one.
Planning a club is a crazy task: getting certified for one, planning the activities, the trips, officers, and especially gathering up materials to use in each project. And I'm the crazy one involved with this huge, massive undertaking.
Let's hope that its a success!

I think I've bored you all for now, so I'm going to go now and save the world from four-armed aliens outside of Jupiter's orbit. Gonna roll my d20 and hope for a crit!
