First Night With Lordi - All Inclusive

Image
At last, after five years of long waiting for an event I thought would never come, it has finally happened! Last night was the most epic night of my life, the most epic of all the concerts I've been to. Lordi was amazing beyond words and that makes the entire wait worth it. At last I can check off the top item on my bucket list.

So, how was it? I went out of my way to prepare for this concert, even if it meant getting ready and eating early so that nothing would come up to distract me, and that's what I always seem to do when I attend concerts that are general admission for everyone.

We arrived at The Opera House at a reasonable time and surprisingly there was no lineup except a few people hanging outside the doors, so we stood near them chatting for hours until it was time for all VIP attendees to go inside. While most people went for the merchandise stand, I bolted straight for the stage, propped myself up in front center against the railing. I did not budge for the rest of …

I must write quickly, so maybe consider this a little update.

First, I must give myself a pat on the back for not spending so much money this month. Today marks only the second package I received from an online order. I kind of owe it to school for distracting me from shopping so much. What can I say, this is a sacrifice I am willing to make, in order to get good grades.

In case you're wondering, the first package was the second half of my Fenty Beauty splurge from Sephora (the other half I bought in-store), with that being said, that splurge made me hit Rouge status and now I've decided that I definitely have enough this time. Wish me luck in trying to only buy what has to be replenished for the next several months!

Before I go out tonight to swing to the symphony of destruction and rock like a hurricane, I'll just share a little haul from Amazon that came in this afternoon!

When I was feeling stressed with some of my work, my parents said I should go buy something online…

Master Org's Whiteout

Last night's dream gave me some nostalgia. It made me wish that I went deeper into the franchise that it centers around. My brother always wanted to watch more of it, and I always showed such little interest.

After that dream, I wish I could go back in time and tell my child self to watch more Power Rangers. There are so many different series and the only one I had seen the most of was Time Force I think. I saw one episode of Wild Force and that's it, but I still know the episode like the back of my hand.

I've got to give some praise to series like these. The action doesn't look so CGI; but I wonder now, how are the effects done when a villain grows to a huge size and then the rangers create a giant robot to fight it? (what are they called.....oh yeah, Megazords). The villains to me look like they're all costumes rather than made through wet suits and all computer animated.

See how my small amount of knowledge I have of what I did watch comes back to me after a dre…

Badges of Honour

I didn't want to share this at first out of the fear that I would be bombarded by the cult following of who is responsible for the incident.

But, I am an honest person and it now feels like it is my duty to share what I have experienced. I've lost friends and followers in the last 24 hours of sharing this on Facebook. I may lose more once it is shared here. People have told me I got what I deserved because I was the rude and criticizing one. They've also told me that I don't know the culprit personally and therefore it was stupid for me to make a big deal out of this.

No, that is not what happened, and it is only fair that I spread the word of the true story. This could raise awareness of the fact we may like someone famous, but then we might discover their true colours and realize what a jerk they are. Generally, I always try to prevent any personal values or political views from interfering with me liking something or someone, especially political, but this was a per…

Well, hello primitives.

It's a fine late Saturday afternoon as I type this and I have made it through the first week. I spent this morning doing one of my minor ailment worksheets and then studying OTC drug names after going for a walk to the nearby festival.

I think it's time I share a little update of what's going on in my life.

So, where do I begin? Well, I'm broadening my horizons:

As of early August for the hell of it, I installed Geometry Dash onto my Steam account after I saw how colourful it was and decided to give it a go since it was so cheap.

I was scared at first because of all the stories of people sharing in their reviews how difficult it was.


But eventually, I started playing and yes, those scary stories were true. At times you'll feel like breaking the controller or slamming your fist on the desk. I think this game is trying to teach us how to be emotionless. It has also taught me to appreciate and even enjoy music genres like EDM and dubstep. Serio…

What a fine evening to write about a concert eh? I've been slowly settling into my college workload once again, and I have one assignment this semester that requires me to venture out to one of the local pharmacies and get their permission to conduct the assignment there. It's not a placement, more like something that can only be done through exposure to the real world stuff.

I told myself to let a week or two pass by so I get settled into the routine of weekly tasks, before I tackle any major assignments like that one. Despite this being only one course, it's got two parts to it and feels a little heavier than it should be! Oh well, I need to keep busy.

Anyway, onto the concert! To tell you the truth it shocked me how early we had to be there, but since we had VIP: the meet and greet was before the show this time. I had to rush to do my makeup and ended up doing a shimmery purple smoky eye with a touch of glitter and my bright pink lipstick.

The signings came first, and a…

Fan Expo 2017 - Rising Up from the Hellfire

Image
For many years, I've wanted to go to Fan Expo, but it was always difficult due to the time of the year it was at: The Labour Day weekend. I would tell myself every year that I would go, and interact with fellow nerds, but then distractions kept popping up like trips to the cottage, school prep./work, etc.

Not this year, I finally got to go yesterday and I am so glad I went. I was super excited to cosplay as Claude Frollo again. The more I dress up as him, the more people connect me to it.

I woke up really early so I had time to wash my hair and suffered two misfortunes while getting ready: First, I got shampoo in my right eye while washing my hair and it stung like hell. Then, while I was doing my makeup; my second attempt creating a look with the sample of Urban Decay's brand new Troublemaker mascara. I was trying to fix a lash that was hanging low until it got in my left eye and I rushed to the bathroom rapidly blinking and had to wipe it off and redo that eye!

Well, at leas…

Man's Last Devil of Seventh Sun - Music of August 2017

Image
Here we are! Another monthly music post! I'll be completely honest here, it was difficult to choose songs for August. There were quite a few that were relating to me on a personal level, and some that I was just jamming to the most in general.

However, once I picked them out, I realized they relate to the events of this month, they're not big ones but more like ones I celebrate myself and things on my mind. August has always felt like the least eventful month of the year, and it'll be interesting how it'll change in the years to come.

Alright, on with the show!

5. Alice in Chains - Man in the Box



This song recently came back into my life the two times I went up to the cottage this summer. My mom would plug her iPod into the car and made me in charge of the playlist. She and I both loved this song, and it's the only AIC song that I know. Whenever it plays during our commute, we turn it up and sing it really loud. It's catchy, but whenever I try to picture somethi…
