Too early to think up a title

Hiya everyone!

It's been about three weeks since my last post! Sorry! I didn't realise just how quickly life was going!

I've been super stressed out these past three weeks as there were quite a few bumps in the road trying to send of my application for university, but IT'S ALL GONE NOW!!! *happy dance* I've finally (two and a half weeks later than I wanted to be, thanks to my school...) applied to my five universities. Now I'm spending all my life checking my emails to find out if I've got any offers... I'm really worried they might see hwo bad I did in physics and be all "this girl is so stupid! Let's not take her!"

On saying that, it was probably poor judgment on my part to apply for a degree at a university that specialises in science... (Just to make it clear I'm applying for French!
^-^) So, let's just see how that goes!

So other than the panicking and endless amounts of French homework I should be doing right now, I've been working and it's one week left until I get paid! I'll be getting about £90 and when I worked out how much I was gonna spend on people for Christmas... I pretty much have nothing left. On the plus side, I have double shifts around Christmas and won't be paid until the first of January so all that money can go on me... I'm saving up for the next MCM in May. This time, I'm going in proper cosplays for both days WITH early entrance... Since I'll be paying for it all myself! Mwahahahaha!

Oooh, also we've got Lovefilm! It's brillliant! We get unlimited streaming of films as well as being able to rent games! And the anime section of the website literally makes me drool. I've rented out Final Fantasy XIII and I played it for the first time yesterday! I kept wanting to buy it but whenever I previously got money one of my friends so carelessly felt the need to have a birthday so all my money got spent on presents! NOT ANYMORE!!! *cough* Got to stop thinking about money, it's not a good habit...

Also, after Christmas I'm learning how to drive! My parents keep arguing whether to buy me a car or get me driving lessons. I sit there crossing my fingers for a car but they're expensive and I'd have to run it myself. Oh dear, I know where my wages are going! To be honest, I wouldn't care if I did have to spend my wages I'D HAVE A CAR! >_< All the places I could go!

Well, I need to wrap this up before the laptop runs out of battery so my top three vocaloid songs this week are:

Number three: This is the happiness and peace of mind society.
Creepy, just creepy.

Number 2: The Transient Apple salesgirl.
Cute Gumi song is cute.

Number 1: 1,2 fanclub

Hiya everyone!

Firstly, Blogger has very kindly deleted EVERYONE'S blogs off of my reading list, which was nice of them! Now I have to find the blogs I was following again... -_-

Secondly, now that's out of the way! I got my job! Yay! I had three shifts already this week and when I got home I was too lazy to get on a computer, so I'm sorry this post is a good week late! I work in a tiny little shop in my local town and it sells looooads of little itsy bitsy things like wooden hearts, photo frames and other cute things! The place smells soooo good as it sells incense and oil burners. The Christmas ones are on sale now so the whole store smells like cinnamon, I was wiping my mouth every 3 minutes! XD

Moving onto the main theme of this post: MY TRIP TO MCM LONDON COMECON!!!

I got up super duper early (6AM, so not that super early) and put my entire cosplay on. I got a few funny looks at the train station. Just to let everyone know I was the only one in the train station for a while, in my bright green Gumi wig. I looked all awkward and hilarious as everyone who passed me gave me a look like "what the hell is she doing?!" Luckily it wasn't too long before we were all on the train.

When we got there it still had two hours before it opened... So we sat at practically the front of the queue, there were about thirty people in front of us. Considering we had two whole hours to wait the time went really quickly! I was happy to sit there and just watch everyone walk past in their cosplays, there were so many Slendermen, vocaloids and Pedo bears.

Haven't got any pictures as I have no camera at the moment... which was depressing. I only took £70 with me and now I want more stuff! All I bought was a ASDF T-Shirt which says "I am a Stegosaurus" on the front, an adorable bag with Chibi Miku, Len and Rin on the front, and a copy of Angel Beats which only cost £10 (which works perfectly, I was sure there was something wrong with it at that price but it's an official certificated copy!)

I was gonna queue up for all the celebrities but the queue's were massive and some of them were charging £15 for an autograph. I walked away after seeing one person... There was loads of other stuff to do so I walked around for ages! There was no way to finish it all in one day!

I got sooo many hugs from people and a couple of people yelled "GUMI!" when I walked past before tackle glomping me, I felt so famous! ^-^ I have to say though, I glomped my fair share of people too, especially the Lens, Soras and Roxases.

There were so many dances going on too, I missed the caramelldansen (p*ssed off! XD) I was buying stuff and didn't make it there on time... There was a guy there dressed as a big speaker and Gangnam style was playing on repeat... all day long, people started to follow this guy round, he got a good crowd of about one hundred people following him around, me amongst them.

I went to a vocaloid meetup and met so many AWESOME people who I'll definitely stay in contact with. At the moment I'm debating whether or not to go to hyper Japan at the end of the month but I don't think I could afford another trip to a con for a while...

All in all I'd say it was practically the best day of my life! I loved all the people there and all the stuff was awesome! Next time I think I'll go for an extra day and spend one day meeting people and the other day shopping! Now that I have my new job think of all the stuff I'll be able to buy at the next one in May *drools*. Once Christmas is done I'll start saving up for MCM MAY! I want more things!

Onto my top 3 vocaloid songs this week:

Number 3: SeeU's Gangnam style:
I discovered this about 3 hours ago AND IT'S HILARIOUS!!!
Number 2: World Calling by Jin and sung by IA
I have a ridiculous amount of love for IA, I LOVE her voice! She's just so adorable that I want to hug her all the time! She's so sweet!
Number 1: Ama no Jaku, originally by 164 and GUMI, sung by Mayu
Mayu is Exit Tunes's upcoming new vocaloid, announced in May earlier this year. I found the demo a while back but I completely forgot about it, a couple of days ago I started to wonder if she had been released yet, so I went back and listened to it this week and it's ended up being my FAVOURITE song at the moment, I can't wait until her official release in December (I think...) I love her artwork and her little nasally voice, even if she does wield an axe!
With that I bid you all farewell, have a nice week!
