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 …

This Unholy Night

All day long I have been shaking inside thinking of the happiness that is dawning upon me. I am ready, I finished my pre-show marathon and tonight I'll prop myself down in the basement in the dark and watch Dark Floors. Thank God for reading week!

I've said this on my other social media platforms, so I might as well say it here.

Tomorrow is the big day!! Tomorrow I will see my lovely monsters! Words cannot describe how much I love them. I have cried over them, I have been envious of the fans overseas for years and I have waited while writing about how jealous I was, or how in love I was with the band. Despite all the drama and discovery of other bands....I have thrived and my love for Lordi has never ceased nor has it changed. I learned to only focus on myself when it comes to what makes me happy thanks to them. I wouldn't have started writing here if it weren't for them. They have been a huge influence to me for the past 6 years, especially Mr. Lordi.


Now, I can't b…

Rock and the Lady Wood

Well, this has been a pretty eventful Family Day long weekend, and the fun is far from over since I now have my reading week.

So where have I been? Well, ever since my time off began I made a non-regrettable decision to put Steam back on my computer. I haven't done PC gaming since I used my laptop instead. I didn't think this desktop had enough to run Skyrim .....but it does, so I'm back into it! I've been binge playing all weekend but I should probably cut back a little bit so I don't forget about this blog.

It's been a girl's weekend as my mom and I have been busy while the boys are skiing and snowboarding in Quebec.

We got to downtown Toronto at around six and were greeted with the usual crowd, smokers off to the side, homeless sitting on the sidewalks, even a few anti-Liberal protesters. Those are the only things I don't like about Toronto, it's depressing but everything else is great. Last time I was there was back in the summer.

We had dinner …

Lady Frollo Takes the Podium

You're telling me out with it, right? Well, I'm going to let it out now.

I've been doing another side project other than my writing. At first, I told myself there's no need to do it as you're not that type of person who takes it that seriously. Well, this actually came upon me rather unexpected.
Toronto Comic Con is next month and I am definitely going to be there, but I didn't want to go as Emi Takori this time. Frankly, carrying my lightsaber around was a pain in the neck. I am very basic when it comes to cosplaying and most of what I have done is just from clothes I already got from my wardrobe to put something together. Back in 2012 I tried to be a female version of Mr. Lordi for Halloween and all I used was a black cape, my sparkly skirt, a gray tank top, boots, fingerless gloves and fake nails. No monstrous makeup that'll take 3 hours to apply unfortunately. No matter how far I go in these projects, I love dressing up whether it's Halloween, a con…

Watch Out......Love Bites

That's right it does, well I say that because I can, not because I have been in a situation like this.

Today is Valentine's day, and in all honesty, if I were to celebrate it, the only thing I would do is prop myself on the couch with some chocolate, popcorn and a romantic movie: probably Titantic. A love story about a healthy relationship, yes I have to bring that up due to the next Fifty Shades movie coming out today as well which I despise greatly.

I wish I could do that anti-Valentine's day look by NikkieTutorials that I saw almost a week ago, but I'm not in the mood to purchase a palette with dark reds and lipstick because I would prefer my vanity does not get overloaded. Maybe in the future I will.

For those of you who do celebrate it, enjoy. I'm not entirely anti-Valentine's day, I just don't need to celebrate it. That being said, this is the only Valentine I need:


Need I say more? Well, I have a bad habit of not turning off my gadgets until around 1…

Work You Brain

I'm sometimes just hoping something will go on in my mind that'll make me want to transfer it onto the draft sheet of this blog.

Like, I'm hoping I have a strange dream or two because I wanna do some writing this week other than what I have planned. I feel like I should also get back into playing KOTOR. God, I haven't touched it since I got this desktop computer because playing PC games as well as console have motivated me to write something.

Perhaps I should also continue with my GOW4 play through as even though I don't particularly like the story so far, it's still worth sharing my thoughts over.

Did I mention I saw Zygarde's complete form earlier today in battle? It's safe to say it reminds me of Unicron.

I'm debating as to whether I should go to TFCon this year, perhaps it should be just the good ol' times of just going to be surrounded by fellow TFormers, after all VIP for a guest I like is a bonus. I'm not paying unless I can afford it…

Horror Blood and Whatnot

Hi guys, it's been a while. Aside from school and my volunteer work the reason for my slight inactivity was due to the fact that I was busy writing the latest chapter for The Warlord's Prize which I finally finished last night. The chapter was really long but I pushed myself to get it done by last night and succeeded. Also, I finally finished my Zygarde hunt; I'm proud of myself but I feel like the downside to it is I don't get to see Zygarde's complete form unless his HP goes below 50%, so the rest of his time is in 50% form. Oh well, that form is pretty cool too so I wouldn't say that I wasted my time.

Anyway, with Lordi due in two weeks I'm probably going to put my fanfiction on hold until after the gig because God I will have to write about it (and I'm looking forward to it), plus I have another surprise to share, those of you who follow me on Instagram or have me on Facebook may already know what it is!

So, I haven't written something like this…

I'm doing everything in my power to disconnect right now. As I write this, I have Lordi blasting as part of a pre-show marathon starting tonight. I might finish it before the gig's date, well...no matter...music is my savior whenever there's some big dumb overrated sporting event happening.

Anyway, I didn't get around to writing about this because I was busy Zygarde-hunting, but now I've been temporarily relieved of that, at least for the moment.

So, over the weekend, I had two weird dreams; not on the same night however but worth writing in two short little stories.

If you're an Anti-Super Bowl like me then perhaps this will help you disconnect from all those updates flooding your feed about it.

Under the Rock

I've been a bit inactive for the past few days due to a few other commitments. I've still been binge playing Pokemon Moon, I am literally 4 cells away from gaining Zygarde's form and I just wanna say it's been a pain in the ass running around and backtracking places I've already been to make sure I got that cell. Serebii has been helpful but I have yet to change the time in this game at the Altar of Moone to make the last 4 cells hopefully a little easier.

The worst part is that when you check the cube to see how many you have, it doesn't tell you which ones you found where, hence all that backtracking to ensure "Okay I got that one, now I should go to this area next."

When this is over, I will bask in glory of the badass Zygarde's complete form in battle.

Other than that, I am pushing myself to finish the next chapter of The Warlord's Prize no later than this Friday. Mondays you know what I do there, so that gives me at least three days to fi…

Why I Self-Insert

After having a heart to heart discussion with a friend, I have finally decided to write about this. If you read my Wattpad fanfictions, you're probably asking me why I self-insert. There's always an original character in there that has my name, a similar name, and/or some features of my appearance.

For the record, I do not put myself in my stories to annoy people. Many people see self-insertion as bad because some authors do not want their readers to see their flaws which is why some of them turn out to be Mary Sues/Gary Stus leading to the misconception that Mary Sue and self-insert are the same thing when they are not. However, that is not the case with me. When I wrote my Didact fanfiction, that story was solely based on who I'd be as a human in the Halo universe and I feel like I never bothered to give myself development, so that was pretty much a Mary Sue unfortunately. But, I did not want to give up my self-insert habits for the following reasons down below, and the …
