I have realized I need to get some new icons... Mainly some new Sherlock, Hunger Games, and Supernatural ones. Maybe I'll make some of my own cosplay too....

Disney, Surgery, and Theater

I'm going to write a short post while I wait for the girlfriend to arrive.

Disney was AMAZING. I miss it so much. We got to see Jenn and Nina and we went to Hollywood Studios, Epcot (where we had a Sherlock shoot in England), and Magic Kingdom. We also went to Wizarding World which was fucking incredible. Jenn insisted on holding Becca's camera while we walked in so she could get pictures of our faces upon seeing it for the first time. OMG I have no words for it. If you're a fan of Harry Potter, you need to go. You really do. Drop everything and get your asses to Orlando. :|

When we left Orlando, we drove to Ft. Lauderdale to meet up with my mom. We had a few meals with some of my family that lives down there and one of her friends and then I had the dog ears on my chest fixed by the same surgeon that did my top surgery. It wasn't a revision, but it was a procedure that I wanted HIM to do because I trust him and I know his work is fantastic. He did not disappoint.

I have been home now for just over a week and Cabaret is opening tonight in Chatham. It's a really racy show but it's going to be really good.

Anyway, Becca is almost here and I want to finish making my coffee, so that's about it for now. :)

My Body Sucks

So I just got back from the orthopedist. The same knee that I had an ACL reconstruction and partial meniscectomy on has been really bothering me lately so I went to see him in Dec. He gave me a prescription for an MRI which I didn't get to until last week. I was sure that I had torn the meniscus again. It's the same pain that I had when I had done that in the past. Today, I went back to see him to discuss the results.

Apparently, when they did the partial meniscectomy, they only left a tiny bit of the meniscus in there. And that's perfectly fine. The pain that I'm getting is from arthritic degeneration. That's ARTHRITIS.

That means that at TWENTY SIX YEARS OLD, not only are my back and hands arthritic, but my knee is too. And there's already actual degeneration in my knee.

Fuck. My. Life.

Next step is getting an orthotic for my shoe and then if that doesn't work I start with injections. Cortisone to start with and then an injection that mimics the natural lubricant in my knee if the cortisone doesn't work.

I'll figure it out. I'm just really annoyed at my body right now.

Especially since I was starting to look forward to starting to get back in shape.

Girlfriend Weekend!

So I had a wonderful weekend with my lovely girlfriend. Her bus got in Friday night after my play, so I drove up to get her. Saturday we had lunch with Bri and then walked around Garden State Plaza for a while so Bri and I look for shoes for Katniss and Peeta.

On Saturday night Becca came to see Grapes of Wrath at my theater. When we got home, we were all adorable and couple-y and cuddled and read for a while.

Sunday we went up to TJ's for brunch. He took us to a little place in his town that has the BEST breakfast food. Mmmmmmm.....

After that, Becca and I came back to my house where we watched a bit of TV and then she had to go back to DC.

All in all, a very nice weekend. I'm heading down to see her in a little over 2 weeks and going to her concert.

The night before that, however, I will be going to the midnight showing of THE HUNGER GAMES! EEEEEE! I'm so excited! Bri and I are going in Katniss and Peeta's training outfits. It'll be AWESOME.

I think that's it for now. I'm watching bad movies on Netflix.

Oh man... I can't believe Katsucon is this weekend! Despite knowing it was coming, it still kinda feels like it snuck up on me. Can't come soon enough, though. I can't wait to see everyone! I'll be heading down a day early to spend a little time with Becca before the craziness that is sure to come over the weekend.

I'm actually mostly prepared for the con, surprisingly. I have to hem a pair of pants, move velcro on something, finish laundry, and pack. And that's it. O.o Probably has something to do with the fact that there really isn't much that needed to be done for it.

What's coming, you ask? Well here's the list!
  1. John Watson (Sherlock BBC)(of course)
    1. Normal Version
    2. Red Shirt
    3. Black Shirt/gray cardigan vest
    4. Reichenbach Final Scene
    5. Army
  2. Rory Williams (Doctor Who)
    1. Day of the Moon
    2. The Girl Who Waited
    3. The Wedding of River Song
  3. Jacuzzi Splot (Baccano)
So as you can see, I'm only bringing 3 characters with me. But I'm insane with versions. >.> Don't judge me, ok?

Now I need to go switch laundry and I shall probably not post again until after Katsucon. If you're going, I hope to see you there! If not, I'll take plenty of photos for you!

Random Hair Styling Post

ok, random post is going to be random but I think I found the most magical hair styling tool in the universe. It's called a "root iron."

It's basically a flat iron without the paddles. Like it's a heated rod with combs on either side of it.

My hair is too short to use a flat iron, so I've had to just suck it up and burn myself when I need to use heat to straighten my hair.

THIS FIXES THAT. The guy that cuts my hair used it yesterday when I went in. He said he's saved his life on numerous occasions and I can see why. It's like a MAGIC STICK (that's what she said.)

Guess who's heading to Sally's Beauty Supply in the next week to pick up one of these bad boys!

An Update? OMG!

Ok, so I've been neglecting this journal VERY badly. I'm going to try and be better about posting, but I'm not making any promises.

A lot has happened in the last few months, both good and bad.

I got a job. I've been working there since the end of August/beginning of September. The people I work with are really awesome and amazing.

My name change is official as of September. I have a new license and everything.

My father passed away in December. Not sure how many of you remember, but he has been sick for the last two years. The stem cell transplant he had last spring didn't get rid of the cancer and he passed away at our home, surrounded by his family and friends on December 9th. We all miss him terribly, but I feel as though I am coping better than my mom is.

I am attempting to figure out my future. I will be taking the GRE's within the next few months so that I can go back to school. I am not sure whether I will be going for Psychology or Social Work, but it will be one of them.

I now have a girlfriend. The Sherlock Holmes to my John Watson, sunnyrea. We've been together officially for about a month and a half now. <3

Umm... what else....

The new season of Sherlock. Enough said.

Katsucon is coming up soon, so I'm trying to get things together for that.

I think that's about it. I have to head out for now, but I'm hoping to be better about updating...
