Hello all. How was everybodies weekend?
28th-Jan-2013 08:14 pm (UTC)
fine. I had Korean fun and went to an old fashion candy store and bought way too much taffy. My new Atelier Pierrot dress came in the mail too!

Eee, finally got my IW luckypack in! So excited! Somehow manage to get a pair of socks that matched a dress I got a year ago, which was pretty lucky.

Aaah! Practical Exams tomorrow and so much stuff to do and prepare. AND so much stuff to carry tomorrow.
I'll be so glad once it's done!

any computer programmers/related majors having trouble? this is only my second semester at Purdue's College of Technology and writing a simple calculator program took me hours even though I was using Microsoft's Visual Studio
28th-Jan-2013 09:41 pm (UTC)

I ordered some Lord of the rings tights off black milk clothing, they are set to arrive today! I can't wait!!! :)

You need these to if you are a true LOTR fan!

This... is definitely becoming one of those days where I realize I have SO much to do~ I wasn't to draw (but post of my checklist is to finish up a portfolio) but I have tests to study for and conferences/competitions to do as officer of current clubs.
I guess the good thing about it is that I'm graduating technical college (and, if money allows me to, transferring to a 4 year college) this spring~

I had a job interview today for an internal position. Even if I don't get it I'm still in a job but still *nerves*

Good luck! =^_^=

I (hopefully) reserved an Abandoned Night jsk by Baroque Lolita. I was fast, but I don't know if I got it, as there's only 10 being made of the version I want. It's such a lovely print. I wish I had money when their Missing Letter, Keys and Rabbit jsk was up for reserve.

Thanks to Facebook, I now know there people who actually think being smart and having a high IQ is bad thing.

Not like in the "I'm a high-schooler, and I'm gonna make fun of the geeks" sense, but instead the "I'm 22 years old, and being smart is dumb!" sense.

Why does this person have to be my friend?(In real life, not just FB)

It's amazing that there are (supposedly) mature adults out there like that. We can't all be geniuses, but everyone can learn and better themselves. Also reminds me of a quote usually attributed to Einstein, "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former."

Questioning things I've thought for awhile, and it's making me really confused. I mean if this is real then, this will change how I live my life. :I

Sorry for being vague. Just needed to get it out.

It's ok, life is one big grey area, but as my gamer boyfriend says: 'When life get's harder, it just means you've level'd up'

I got my bodyline order a couple of days ago, I finally have blouses that were actually designed for lolita!
29th-Jan-2013 01:24 am (UTC)
Yay! The greatest feeling in the world! =^_^=

Can anyone recommend a versatile style of hand bag? I dress in more gothic/classic style and my goal for this year was to buy more quality than quantity with my accessories.
Thanks :)

I really love the Black Peace Now bags. I've been using mine daily for about a year now and it's still looking awesome.

Still waiting on my AP dress because Japonica is being difficult (My agent lady said she didn't have time for my questions, and won't answer any e-mails from me, even though they are questions about shipping, until I pay for shipping.) =___= Got in a fight with the school security guard over a poptart. ("Hey! Kid! I've never seen you before and I just watched that poptart bag blow up in your face, but I'm going to start screaming and yelling at you, saying that you were crumbling it on the ground on purpose! Oh, don't forget the part where I call you a lying dirtbag when you tell me you didn't crumble it on the floor!") Apparently she's done this to students in the past, but she has yet to be fired. I can't get a math grade for the second quarter because I've only been in the class for two weeks. Basically. I've been having a bad day.

But hopefully it all balances out. Like maybe I'll get that job I'm applying for, and get to buy the next beautiful IW oddment pack. (Not to mention, since I'm under 18, and I want to work at Target, I'll be tax exempt :D Just have to sign a form. )

Has anyone else bought a Sam's square dance petticoat before?
I just picked one up (Sam's 835 model) on my recent eBay thrifting spree and it's just as fluffy as my Malco Modes 582. It might even be a little more sturdy because the material feels slightly stiffer (although still soft).

I plan on reconstructing it to make it more fluffy up top but I really think I've finally got something sturdy enough to fluff up my Lief Sacred Night JSK properly. Hooray!
29th-Jan-2013 02:11 am (UTC)
I have one, I'm not sure which model it is since I bought it at a Buffalo Exchange, but it's super soft and fluffy. <3 It's a little bit short though so usually I just put a longer (mostly dead) petticoat over it to make the shape less weird.

Just got my new dress from Innocent World, I am so happy I just want to sleep in it and never take it off!

Other than that, mostly just studying. It's gonna' be a powder day tomorrow though, so hopefully I'm going to go skiing.

School's Fashion Week is coming up fast and I have done approximately nothing except buy fabric with my partner XD I haven't even finalized my designs yet :(

Our theme is FUTURISTIC DREAM-EATING TAIPRS so I hope it turns out well...

Nothing to do with Lolita ahaha
29th-Jan-2013 04:43 am (UTC)
That theme sounds epic.

I spent my day off finishing up the Korean version of 'Boys Over Flowers'. Even though I was familiar with the anime, and knew pretty much all the plot points (if not the order they came) I was compelled to watch this daily. I FINALLY HAVE MY LIFE BACK.

Now, back to Deep Space Nine...
29th-Jan-2013 12:01 pm (UTC)
Have you watched the Japanese version? I have seen the Korean but I watched the Japanese Hana Yori Dango film yesterday which was good fun (i'd watched the two series ages ago so it was nice to see the characters again)
29th-Jan-2013 05:38 am (UTC)
My gloria skirt arrived (according to my dad), but I'm away and so now impatient to get home and open the package!
29th-Jan-2013 12:01 pm (UTC)
Oooh what colour?
29th-Jan-2013 08:12 am (UTC)
I got laid off yesterday, coz my company had run out of work for me to do D: D: D:
29th-Jan-2013 01:58 pm (UTC)
HEY THAT happened to me just two months ago!!!!
Really is hard and stressful and very sad!

I was lucky and found a diff job before the layoff day
30th-Jan-2013 07:41 pm (UTC)
I return home after serving a year in Afghanistan finally. I'm so excited to open my Innocent World Lucky Pack and get into my Lolita clothes and parade around
