The 9th Doctor

So they are playing a marathon of the first season of Doctor Who(the new series) and I thought, when exactly did I fall in love with the 9th Doctor. I realized I fell in love with him while watching the Fathers day episode, when rose apologized for what she had done and the Doctor smiled then jumped into action. Now, I know that Many adore the 10th Doctor and don’t much care for the 9th, but I love him and his coldness.

That’s not saying that I don’t like the 10th, because I love him as well! David Tenant did such an amazing job at bringing parts of Christopher’s 9th Doctor into the 10th Doctors Personality. It made the transition a lot easier for me….. Now the 11th Doctor on the other hand, I am not a big fan of. I think his personality is a lot different and I find him to be a bit depressing some times. I know a lot of people love him as well, I just don’t like the Strong Jaw lines like his though, It makes me think of Gaston from Beauty and the beast.

I really wish we could’ve gotten more time with the 9th Doctor, he is just so amazing and I feel like everyone Forgets about him, or pushes him aside! I was excited to find out that Christopher was in Thor 2, even though you can’t really tell that it’s him…… I just want more of him as the Doctor 😦

And now, I am done 🙂 hope you enjoyed this small talk

Christmas Ornaments

So I made Ornaments to give to some family members as well as friends. It’s pretty Simple, I bought a set of clear ornaments from Hobby Lobby, some fake snow, and Vellum paper. The Vellum paper is a little tricky, with Logos, the pictures turn out fine. However, if you want to do an actual photo, I suggest using a laser printer instead of inkjet. To make them fit into the ornament, I found a template online that was just about the right size circles. This is the site I found the template on http://www.brownkraftlabels.com 

Now to get the paper in, you need to roll it then push it the ornament. I used tweezers to position it in the right spot. It may take a while to get it right, so don’t get too frustrated. After I had the paper in place, I added my snow. Now I hate glitter, and I do mean HATE, I tend to break out when in contact with it. So instead I used “Frosted” Snow, it looks like it could be made of Wax paper or something, and completely glitter free. 

When it comes to printing on the vellum paper, you may have to tape it to a regular piece of printer paper. I have an Epson Artisan 50 and it would not take the Vellum paper. It kept saying there was a jam, yet there was not. Also, when you tape it to the paper, make sure that you tape it in three different spots on the end that the printer will be grabbing a hold of. if you don’t, you will have a bad time. If you have any question, please feel free to ask. Blessed Be!

Best Friends Forever? Maybe Not

I recently realized that it doesn’t matter how long you’ve known someone, they might just walk out of your life without even saying anything to you. Some friendships last and sadly, some don’t. When you’re young, you think that your best friend will always be your best friend. Maybe you will gain a few more best friends, but always have your first bestie by your side. I learned that it doens’t always work out that way. I’ve gotten to watch my younger brother, who just turned 21, and his best friend since the age of 5 still as close as ever. Myself on the other hand, I’ve found that my best friend of 12 years is moving further and further away. It’s sad really, no matter what I do to keep us together, it’s like she pulls back even more. Instead she is making friends with people online and talks more to them than she does with me. It’s a hard thing to go through, espcially since she really is my only friend. Once you become an adult, it’s hard to find time to make new friends and I think it becomes harder.

It makes you want to go back to the days that you thought it was all going to last forever. Sometimes I find myself wanting to tell my nieces that Best friends don’t always last forever, then I think, Why destroy their dream. Maybe they will be the exception, like my brother and his best friend. I can’t tell them or anyone else for that matter, that they will never have a best friend for life. Someone that will always be there for them and who they will be there for.

I do have some advice, be open with your best friend. Don’t make them always text or call you to hang out, it goes both ways. If you don’t want to be friends with someone, tell them! Don’t just stop talking to them, or put cryptic posts on facebook and then tell your best friend that you don’t want to talk about it. Don’t say you will be somewhere, then not show up or call, Best friends don’t do that to each other. 

If you know that your bestie is always  texting while hanging out with you, and then takes from an hour to a couple of days to answer your text, then you’re not best friends. Trust me, I know….. It’s hard to give up on someone that has been in your life for so long, but nothing lasts forever. It’s best to let something like that go, why fight for someone who wont fight for you?

 

This one may seem like a downer, and for anyone actually reading, I am sorry. It’s just something I’m going through right now and felt like I needed to vent a little, people may not realize it, but it’s hard being the loyal one all the time.Image

We attack each other

So, I was watching Heroes of Cosplay last night, just like I do every Tuesday night since it started, and I had a realization. I realized that people will attack others that on their side! On last night’s episode, some of the girls went to Kansas City for a con and entered into the group competition. A group of girls dressed as the different Doctors from Doctor Who that are from the area were behind some of our heroes and began to put them down. They told the group that they didn’t belong there and that they didn’t even make their costumes, so they should just leave. 

This made me really upset, as Geeks, we have enough “normal” People mocking us and trying to make us feel bad about our selves, why do that to each other?! I was happy when Holly defended herself and her friends, saying that cosplaying is about having fun and that they shouldn’t be attacking each other. I was disappointed when one of the Doctors put her nose in the air and said she was done talking to them. Really?! I hope they watch the show and see how much work all the girls put into their costumes and feel bad about how they treated them.

Myself and some friends had been discussing this issue long before this came up on the show. I have been to a few Cons before and thankfully I’ve only ran into one person that was rude about our costumes, and that was because we made a girls verizion of a boys school uniform. It is sadly common for people to be bullied by people that should, and usually do, understand them and like the same things. I don’t understand why people do this to each other, you’re already Alienated by those that think you’re a freak, why then turn on each other and alienate someone that could be a good friend?

If you spend a lot of time on the internet, you may have seen some of this going on. There are people who get upset that black people are cosplaying a character who is white! It’s so stupid, I’m sorry, are we only allowed to cosplay our own race? If that’s so, then the majority who cosplay shouldn’t because a lot of us are cosplaying anime characters…..who are asian…… yep…

Why is it that we can’t get along and say “wow your costume looks awesome!” Instead we say “you’re too big for that character” or “you can’t cosplay that character, you’re too dark.” I feel like a lot of it has to do with Jealousy, why else would you try to get someone to leave or just make them feel bad about themselves?

So, this realization……I realized that even those that are like minded, who enjoy the same things, will attack each other even when they could be the best of friends…. what a sad world we live in.Image

Friends?

One more realization for the day….. I know I know…. But I really need to write this down be fore it’s forgotten.

Some people are shitty ass friends! This is what I’ve realized tonight as I was at The Used concert with my cousins. This guy was completely drunk, as in he is swaying everywhere and I felt like him and I were about to preform a trust fall. This guy was grabing girls here and there and he even started grabing and hugging an older woman. He didn’t know anyone, and his friend just let him continue.

The real kicker here, is that the woman sat him down in the seat in which I was previously using. Just so you know, we were in a bar and the table we got was the closest to the stage. So we were checking on him to make sure he was okay and we even gave him our water to drink. He was actually very nice and kept saying he was sorry. The real problem, is not once did his friend look back to see if he was okay! He just allowed his wasted friend to walk off, he didn’t even know we had sat him down.

Finally when the concert had ended, his friend finally showed up and started to talk to him. We left, thinking that he was going to be taken care of by someone he knows. We stood closer to the stage as we waited for the place to clear out a little bit so that we could actually get out side. He was once again left alone as his friend walks away and goes to the bar to see if he can get another beer! Really! A staff member went over to check on the guy since his head was once again on the table.

I just can’t for the life of me believe that some one be that shitty of a friend to know that your friend is completely drunk and just let them walk away. Not even caring where they went to! He could’ve decided to leave and try to walk down the steep stair case. I just don’t understand people………

So this is my realization, some people can be really shitty friends……. please make sure your friends aren’t.Image
