…When you just find out that Peter Capaldi is coming to Melbourne, but you can’t really afford to fly over…Well you can, but you’ll have no money left…And it’s the week before your birthday…This is my literal reaction right now…Well in my head…
I will survive!
So hello I am here and I am writing another Blog for Magical Monday, which means that I managed to survive! I didn’t even have to use my extra pain medication or anything…Although for safe measure I did put an ice pack on my leg when I got back
Another Convention over…No Rogue figurines =/ What is up with that? There was these different Gambits and no Rogue!
Supanova is here!
30 Days of Gratitude: Days 22 – 28
Day 22 – Conventions: Today started off with me feeling pretty down about a lot a of things. So going to the Supanova convention was exactly what I needed, but I was also grateful that I was able to attend this convention with good friends. What I didn’t expect was to feel as free as I did. Surrounded by people in a fun environment where I felt safe to be me, I felt free from the dramas of other people treating me like a second rate friend. If I had gone out drinking, or just clubbing I would have just gotten drunk.
Day 23 – Health – So last night I pretty much spent half the night throwing up due to some food poisoning and found that more than half the people I went out with had gotten it too. So I wasn’t feeling particularly grateful. Luckily though I realised if I was on the streets or in a third world country, what I went through last night, there was a serious chance that I could have died in the streets. As terrible as my stomach felt, it could have ended up a lot worse for me in a different situation.
Day 24 – Job Club – One of the requirements of not having a job in Australia is attending “Job Club” every week. Sometimes it can feel like such a chore, but I have a new case worker now and feel like he might be actually able to help me. I also got a call today from a potential employer, letting me know that the police check I sent (I sent in for a casual pool months ago) is now invalid and before they can even consider giving me employment I need a new police check…Feeling a little more positive today.
Day 25 – Ferguson: Well this has definitely been the hot topic on a global scale today and I don’t even live in America! As much as I am feeling like I want to stay indoors and be a hermit right now, I am feeling very grateful to be an Australian right now Apart from Abbott trying to ruin everything…We are pretty lucky… Let’s kick Abbotts butt! I can’t stand that guy,lol.
Peaceful Protest Ferguson!
Day 26 – Breakthrough: Last night I had such a breakdown and it was not a good one, I haven’t had one like that in a really long time. For 30 years I have realised how badly I’ve been treated by my ex’s and the damage that is pretty permanent now. It has made me though realise I need to seriously change a LOT in my life. I also need to stop dating Gamers…They are a lot of talk, but not so much about the ‘walk’,lol.
Day 27 – “The Fight”: I have been a bit down since I had to really say goodbye to my ex and let him know that I just do not trust him and after 30 yrs. I am honestly having a hard time trying to find something to be grateful for, other than realising how strong my heart is and how loyal it is to myself instead of ignoring what I need to do.
Day 28 – Thanksgiving: How ironic that 30 days of gratitude happens to fall on Thanksgiving. There is so much that I am grateful for although I am going through a bit of a bad patch right now. But I also know because of all that I am grateful for, I will make it through this too.
Well this weekend has been amazing and such a life changing experience as well as a perfect way to end a horrible chapter in my life! For those who do not know what Supanova is, it is basically a video game, anime, magna, movie and television convention. Like the ones they have in America, but they are only now starting to grow in Australia.
I went as a character for the first time ever and it was AMAZING!!! My character was Katarina from LoL or Leagues of Legends, which is a computer game. It was the most fun I had had in such a long time and the sore legs, head and behind the next day was completely worth it!
I had originally got the costume together for my ex, who introduced me to the game and for mainly that reason I chose not to dress up as her, but it felt fitting at this particular Supanova convention. You see, last years Supanova was pretty much were I met my ex. So to dress up as Katarina and at Supanova after a year later felt like a circle of life thing…An AWESOME circle of life thing!
I had so many people come up and take pictures with me and had professional photos done! I had professional LoL players compliment my outfit and now they want to meet up with me later and do another shoot! I will definitely be doing this again…So many ideas, I am not short of those!
Thumbs up to awesome times and now I can definitely say I am excited for the rest of the year! Everything feels different now…
