Watching: Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
Yep, this weekend my boyfriend and I flew our Canadian butts all the way down to Texas for RTX! I can happily say it was an amazing weekend, though we spent a large amount of time waiting in lines because I believe around 36,000 people were attending that convention, so all the lines were pretty nuts.
But yeah, went to a handful of cool panels, met Michael and Lindsay and my boyfriend cried internally, we got them to sign our Rooster Teeth flag too. We really would have liked to at least meet Burnie and Geoff as well but the crazy amount of people at RTX made it a tad difficult haha. But I never expected to meet all the people I wanted, but at least we got to meet Michael and Lindsay and that was pretty worth it on it's own. I also got to meet my best friend in the whole world for the first time and there was a lot of crying, I miss her already, saying goodbye sucked. I've established that I will be attending RTX next year though, so I'll be able to see her again <3
But I'm back in Canada now, everything is kind of settling down. After getting the boot from my parent's house I've settled into my boyfriend's place nicely, though his room is a tad snug now haha. I also need to give his brother a talking to about using my stuff while we're gone for more than a couple days because I came home to my desk/TV area covered in all his clothes, dishes, and other belongings and I wasn't too happy! Along with that he knocked a couple of things off the wall while he was moving around my TV to hook up the PS3 (I'm guessing), and broke a framed Litho and almost damaged a Pink Floyd record I had up too, because I don't see how they could've fallen off the wall without some kind of force :c Oh well I guess, it's just stuff (But it's stuff that's important to me haha gosh)
Also, after spending hours sitting in airports yesterday, my boyfriend and I spent a lot of time talking about everything, and with my college application deadline coming up and me not having my shit together yet because I've been too busy getting kicked out and moving, I'm gonna consider going back to school in April instead of September. This way I can build a stronger portfolio and also spend more time working on personal art, commissions, and other stuff. We went over any issues in my financial situation and settled on some stuff that will work between the both of us when it comes time to get an apartment (it's also really helpful that he just got a new higher paying job haha)
After talking all that over with him I feel so much better though to be honest, I've just had so much stuff going on in my life lately that worrying about college right now isn't really making anything easier. And all that matters is I am for sure going back to school, it just happens to be like 6 months later than I originally intended and I don't see anything wrong with that haha (I also get to spend the warmer months in school rather than essentially all winter which is great)
So that's it for an update, gonna spend the next couple days working on art since I didn't get the chance to draw all weekend, I go back to my poopoo job on Thursday so I'll start having money again haha.
