A Single Petal Dancing

My only two days off this week are turning into days I have to work.

I had to work 9pm to 2am last night (we managed to get off a little early)

Today my co-worker texted if I could work his shift tonight as he’s sick.

I have to take it because he’s a keyholder and is closing so I’m the only other person who can take it. If I take it it puts me over 40 hours if he doesn’t take one of my days in return.

x_x I just want some sleep

Obviously Robert Downey Jr. is auditioning to play Tuxedo Mask, yes?

George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.

To be honest I’m a bit pissed off at my manager at the moment.

I didn’t get my schedule until almost 11 las night. (At least the 3 week in a row) and I had to open this morning. I also reminded her several times last week that I had to have the evening of the 31st off because I had Dakota’s open house that night. Of course I’m scheduled to close that day.

This is getting fucking old.

"Mah Coins…."

…..the catch phase of the night apparently…

Please someone tell me Julie Andrews saw this lol

For once I’m glad Dakota is at my moms. I am about 500% done with dealing with him this weekend. The clincher was him fucking standing in the middle of the fucking yard and watching me mow through grass so thick the lawnmower kept shutting off.

I couldn’t even mow half the back yard because the mower kept shutting off and I don’t have the strength to keep fucking starting it.

They both became fully-fledged geiko but Kimiharu retired shortly after this.

Today is going to be a long day….

I was up most of the night with Souji. I don’t know if she just wasn’t feel well or if she was sore from her shot but you would have thought I was my 3 year old godson the way she growled and hissed at me.

I was also (and still am) in quite a bit of pain and smart me left my ibuprofen at home.

9 hour shift today too. Like a said. A long day…

I’m in one of those moods where I wonder why I even bother trying to cosplay. I mean, am I really that good at it?

I’m awkward at posing. I’m terrible at sewing so I didn’t even make my cosplay outfits. Some are at least real kimono for the cosplay that call for them. My little brother has more enthusiasm for cosplaying than I do. (He also has a better attitude and better self image than I do.)

I love my Saitou cosplays and I love cosplaying as Ariel. I need to give my Kikyo cosplay another chance as I haven’t worn her in years.

I have so many ideas for cosplays I’d like to do, but I don’t even have the confidence that I can pull them off. One such cosplay is a Rei Hino/Sailor Mars cosplay. I have the miko outfit from my Kikyo cosplay and I thought about cosplaying her in that outfit and have her transformation pen or something but I’m just feeling discouraged about it.

I’m just feeling inadequate about myself and my ability to cosplay and have not a clue on how to even begin to feel better about it and keep from wanting to just give up on it.
