Today’s my birthday! ^_^
I normally don’t like mentioning this to anyone, but today has been one of the best birthdays I have had in the past few years! Serious. All of my birthdays spent away from the East coast have been horrible so far.
The first year away, I got sick two days before my birthday and was sick for about a week straight. =(
The following year, I flew back east to celebrate my birthday and everything was fine!
The third year, some personal issues came up and ruined the day completely. I cried almost the entire day.
This year was the first year that I’ve had a good birthday without being on the East coast. Yay!!!
Anyways, instead of a regular post, I thought I’d write about a few things that have been going on in my life lately.
~ About two weeks ago, I dropped my phone for the first time and completely destroyed it. Mr. Munchimunch was sure he could fix it. The replacement part I ordered was damaged so I’m currently waiting for the exchange. Living without a “smart” phone for two weeks has been very refreshing! Instead of being attached to my phone and plugged into social media, I now check everything once or twice a day at a time of convenience. On a bad note, I’ve lost all my phone numbers until my phone gets fixed!
~ The school semester started a little over a month ago. In one of my classes, we are suppose to improve two things about ourselves during the semester and give a presentation on what we’ve learned about our experiences. One of the two things I’ve chosen is to learn how to deal with stress. I tend to get worked up and stressed out over things, sometimes the smallest things set me off, and I’m learning how to breathe deeply and not stress out. It’s going well so far.
~ I attended Salt Lake Comic Con this year and it was so much fun! It was the first convention ever held in Utah and it broke many records. It also received a lot of publicity. While the convention was extremely unorganized and jam packed crowded, I did finish my cosplay (pictures to be posted soon!) and also finished Lucas’s cosplay (with help from Mr. Munchimunch). I was a Viera Assassin from Final Fantasy and Lucas was Gandalf. He enjoyed the convention as well and loves dressing up with me. hehe We can’t wait for the next convention!
~ Halloween is coming up already and I haven’t decided what I want to be yet. That’s definitely a first for me! I did decide that I want to host a Halloween movie night at my place filled with delightful Halloween themed desserts and finger foods. I haven’t finished the menu yet, but I’m quite excited!
~ Since I broke my phone, I needed to find a replacement because I use my phone to take photographs. I have two major trips in the next two weekends and taking pictures is imperative. So I finally bit the bullet and bought a DSLR as a birthday gift for myself! I also purchased an extra lens as well as a memory card. I took a few test pictures with it today and I LOVE IT! I’m thinking of taking a photography class to learn how to better use it so I don’t embarrass myself. haha I can’t wait to improve and post new pictures up!
Phew. Now that I’ve babbled enough about myself, what about you guys?
Do you feel too attached to technology? Do you have any tips for me on how to deal with stress? Did you attend SLCC? What are your plans for Halloween? Do you have any great photography experiences you’d like to share with me? Let me know in the comments below.
Thank you for visiting! ^_^
