Weddings and Working

    Well, my first real week has begun and I'm exhausted.  Normally, I would be uploading a Nintendo Land video, but Tuesdays are actually my busiest day.  In truth, I'll have to move my update day to most likely Monday or Wedns.  This week, however, my oldest sister is getting married so I am a bit tied up!  This Friday especially is going to be crazy.  I do have a video ready, and if that's not going to work, I do have part 1 of An Amariel Relationship Guide ready!  I'm sorry for all the delays everybody, love you all <3

Adventures with Lea #4: My First Gaming Convention!!

    If you haven't seen it, I also posted the August "Heroes" Loot Crate Opening today.  It's awesome so give it a look!

    This weekend was my first ever Gaming convention--or really, convention of any kind!  I was going to vlog, but decided against it over all.  Instead, as the pictures get posted to Facebook, I'll be adding the pictures taken by other people at the con of me in my Chell Cosplay, although it was too hot to wear the blue undershirt.  Keep an eye out for this post to be updated with those.  Let's start with Friday.

     Friday, the convention began at 3 and lasted until 9.  For the 2 day pass, it was $25, with $5 off for
students, so $20 for me.  I got there around 3:30 and left about an hour later.  In that time, I circled the small convention about 5 times with the Tinker, played the new Mario Kart which is very interesting (especially since we couldn't figure out how to see the stats on the bikes), and purchased a handmade black Luma and an Ash Ketchum hat!  Then, we left to get Luna Rossa and I headed home.  Afterwards, I went to play games with my sister and she adored by black luma and requested one of her own, so I had a mission.

   Saturday was much different.  I went early, around 1:30 to get a Green Luma for Connie and a Blue Luma for Tristan.  They were $2 less than the previous day when I bought mine which was nice.  I took Connie hers straight away at the mall, where they invited me to see The Giver with them which I did.  I personally hated the book in 6th grade and the idea of a Utopia still terrifies me, but the movie was very good.  After that, I took Joellen with me to the con again to enter the cosplay contest as Chell!  I met Kortni, cosplaying as Lulu from League of Legends, as well as this awesome group who cosplayed as Deaadpool, Emma Frost, Cyclops, and Rouge!  The contest was small enough that all 4 judges (and Pikachu, judge #5) gave favorite awards and the top 3 of the anime and gaming categories all got prizes, so literally everyone.  I was one of the judge's favorites, so I got an Auvio HDMI Switch which I'm not 100% sure what to do with.  Maybe I'll sign the box and do my very first giveaway????????  If that sounds cool, leave a comment or give me a better idea.

   After the competition, I spent two hours playing Just Dance, Mortal Kombat 2, Marvel vs Capcom, and Mario Kart with Joellen.  I bought myself a creeper backpack that's perfect hugging size too!  For some perspective, a 12 inch Creeper plush costs $22 at Hot Topic; I bought my near double sized Creeper for $21 and he has a little zipper for stuff!  I also found a pink Wii remote with motion plus, which are about $40 at Gamestop, for $20 with batteries ^^.  Finally, I found the ancient Mew promo card which I've always wanted and never had for a dollar including a protective sleeve.

Vendor Item Cost
Gaming Con 2 Day All Entry Pass $20
Neko Angel Mew Card+Sleeve $1
Tarabako Black, Green, and Blue Luma $17
Floyd's Gold and Pawn Pink Wii Remote with Motion Plus $20
Bear's Cave Comics or Onigiri Amigurumi (i'm not sure which and neither have a link) Creeper Hat ($25 with a $4 markdown) and Ash Hat ($15) $36
Cosplay Contest Auvio Hdmi Switch (worth ~$20) $0

+a $1 Soda $104

   Overall, although it cost some money and time, it was very much fun to experience a gaming convention!  It was small, but it was nice to get to see other people passionate about gaming who will come and give you some tips on how to play games you never have before, how to pull off a cosplay, and other awesome stuff.  I cant wait for Comic Con which is the weekend of Sept. 5th!!  I'll try to contain my wallet a bit better that time.  Now, for some tips!

Lea's Tips:
  1. Have Cash
    1. Most vendors, especially at smaller conventions, will want cash.
      1. Especially multiple types of bills.  I was caught in the "only have $20s" conundrum whereas the Tinker was in the "only has $1s" fix.
    2. Plus, it's easier for you to keep track of your spending.  
  2. Go with a friend
    1. It's way more fun if you have someone to do the co-op games with and to stop you from (or in my case, encourage you to) buy things.  
  3. Bring a bag
    1. I brought my old YWIC bag to carry my Companion Cube, things I bought, wallet, 3DS, and extra cosplay items
      1. I suggest a "tote" bag--one that can carry all the things you buy and bring
  4. Keep track of what you buy--no object left behind!
    1. I nearly lost my Ash hat at the Mario Kart station, but luckily I checked before leaving the parking lot and was lucky to catch it before anyone took it.  
    2. Also, watch your money and bags.  I'm a pretty careless person, so i put my bags essentially on my feet whenever I sat so I had to grab them as I got up.  
  5. Look at the list of events ahead of time
    1. I was lucky to have heard about the cosplay contest on Friday, otherwise, I never would have known.  Most conventions post a list of vendors and events, and ours did too--one that I didn't notice.  
  6. Have a good time
    1. There's no point to cosplaying or going to events if not to have fun!
    2. Go in a group, wear a costume or a nerdy shirt, and meet other people who share your nerd-dom!  I suggest starting out small, at events like this one, before going to big ones like SDCC
    3. If you have a 3DS, bring it to streetpass!  I only got a total of 8 so I'm hoping I'll get more at Comic Con.    
    So that's it for this one guys!  I will be attending the comic con as well, with my Star-Lord Cosplay enhanced!  Hope you guys enjoyed this post.  Night!  <3

Adventures with Lea #3: My First Day of College

     After an entire summer of doing work and then a whole lot of nothing, I've reached the conclusion that is school.  I began the day bright and early at 6:30 a.m. with the usual school routine--shower, clothes, food, charge your stuff, etc.  I even decided to do a little experiment and take my 3DS to see if I would streetpass with anyone on campus as a little experiment.  I decided on a dress with pockets so I could keep my phone out of my purse and decided to go ahead and take my laptop just in case.  My school even offers the most recent Microsoft Office for free, so I went ahead and downloaded that!  My sister had also given me a "college prep kit" for my birthday, that had all kinds of useful things like highlighters, a planner, and sunglasses so I gathered up those things too which came in handy later.  Then, I gathered my things and was off.

Taking a selfie to avoid being bored waiting outside
     Astronomy was first on the list.  I left early to get a parking spot but ended up being over 30 minutes early to class.  6 students sat on the steps to the Biology Annex like gargoyles guarding the entrance, giving inquisitive and intimidating stares to those who dared to pass them to enter.  I stood outside, far from them, waiting--thinking the building was locked.  Upon entering hesitantly 20 minutes before class's start, I realized many people sitting on the floor in front of the classroom instead--I even found a friend from school and sat with her.  The class itself was interesting, with the professor being a pretty cool guy overall.  I ended up having to buy a textbook, a pass to the homework website, and I'll have to pay for ink/printing of the lab assignments.  After some super sleuthing online, I found a completely unmarked copy of the book in perfect condition for $3 and added on $7 for 2 day shipping so a nice $10 for the book.  Total Cost:  $50  

    Geography was up next.  Connie had the same Prof. and made sure I got him.  He's a really interesting guy who doesn't use a textbook and focuses on many of the 70 countries he's visited in person!  The room however, was a large lecture hall and it was completely packed.  Luckily, I found 2 more friends to sit with right in the second row.  The entire class was a powerpoint of pictures from all over the world, including statistics about things such as population, oil, consumption of water and melting of glaciers, and a lot of other interesting things.  Total Cost:  $0

   Computer Science was the last class of the morning.  It was in my good old Science Hall home where YWIC was all summer.  Noor and I walked to class where I found Seth!  I sat with him and the prof discussed the syllabus, the lab and grading system, and the usual jazz.  She let class out 30 minutes early, so I went to the library to purchase my books and such.  This is where I discovered the book she wanted us to have was $140.00 at the bookstore on campus and $56 to rent.  I found the exact same book online for $44 and added express shipping, giving me about $51.  Total Cost:  $51

  After some lunch with Jaimi and a visit to the Ywic ladies, I got to go home.  I found out that I street passed 3 people!  I rested, got my scholarship money into my account, and then headed back to school at 6:00 for Trigonometry.  I was hoping to have another easy class but I was WAAAAY off!  The teacher speaks in a pretty hard to understand accent, took 5 minutes to go over the syllabus that was apparently online and not handed out, and then began straight away with notes on inequalities--the thing I find easiest.  The class honestly made me bored and a bit overwhelmed at the same time.  Turns out I have to pay for ANOTHER site to do my homework on, and perhaps even the book as well unless a friend has it.  I left school and headed to the dollar store, but found no notebooks to take notes for my classes in :(   Cost Not Including Book:  $70

   Luckily, my Lootcrate finally came today!  Today's crate was FANTASTIC so I'll have the video of that up soon, but tomorrow is Gaming Con!!!!!!!  My Nintendo Land video might be delayed because of it!

Lea's Tips:
  1. Check your school's website before school begins
    1. Some teachers, like my Astronomy teacher, emailed the syllabus to us this Monday so we could have our books, but my trig teacher only put it on Canvas, the school's homework site.
    2. Make sure to check it and bring your syllabus with you to class  
  2. Make sure you have applied/accepted scholarships, grants, and the like
    1. The #1 cause of college problems is price tag shock from what I can see, so for you and your family's sake, go for some scholarships!
      1. Check out sites like Fastweb.com that will help you with this sort of thing!
      2. Talk to financial aid and FAFSA
    2. If you have already received a scholarship, MAKE SURE YOU ACCEPTED IT!  You can usually do this through your college's student site!  Plus, you need to pick up your money!  Maybe other schools mail it to you, but I had to go down to Financial Aid to pick up my scholarship money!
  3. Print out your week's schedule and either walk your day out or be familiar with your classrooms ahead of time
    1. Luckily, I'm very used to my college campus so I knew where all 4 of my classes were, but make sure you know the class room # and building.
    2. If you have questions, ask around and people can help you.  I had to direct 3 people to a classroom in the poorly designed Science Hall.
    3. If you are new to the campus, I suggest printing out a map and going a few days ahead of time and walking through your schedule to figure out how to get from one class to the next and make sure you can do so in the allotted time.  
  4. Have your parking sticker and other mandatory school supplies before hand
    1. I bought my $52 parking permit yesterday and had to stand in line for 20 minutes in the sun.  Make sure you have this or know where to park if you cant afford one.  
  5. Get sleep, have breakfast, and take snacks,
    1. It sounds cliche, but do it.  You need rest, especially if you have early classes like I do.  Make sure you know your schedule and know where you can fit in meals and snacks!  
  6. Go early to find a parking spot if you intend to park
  7. Take notebooks, pencils, highlighters, and a planner
    1. I used my planner to color coat my classes and my schedule.  That way, I can say "Oh, I have a Pink Exam on the 13th, so I have one for Astronomy!  And I have blue homework so Trig!"  
    2. Some teachers will actually make you take notes.  I couldn't find a notebook this morning and Trig kicked my butt.
  8. Make a friend or look for old ones so you don't have to sit alone
    1. Most classes will involve group work, so find a good group!!
  9. Make time for your friends
    1. Find time when you can hang out, get lunch, or otherwise relax alone or with friends
    2. I suggest finding a time to do a physical activity like swimming if you're not in a physical education or sports class, even though walking will help.  
  10. Have fun
    1. Don't get scared.  If things get overwhelming, find some ice cream and have a little snack
    2. Find a place that is easy to go to and relax like the library or a shop on campus
    3. Swim, play games, or do something other than just work to keep you awake and sane.
    4. You guys are welcome to share your first day experiences in the comments or here on my email!  I'd be happy to hear about it and/or give support or advice ^^

Possible Livestream?

   So, tomorrow is the anniversary of my comic, Me+Free!  I realize though that tomorrow is a bit sudden to have a livestream, so I'd like to set one up for either Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday of next week!  I'll try to figure out a better set up for my camera so you can actually see what I'm drawing.  This time, for those select who that show up, I will have a FREE (hehe) song on iTunes and maybe some Pokemon TCG Online codes to give away at a random point during the stream!

   I would most likely begin the stream around 11 a.m. MST (10 PST, 12 CST, and 1 p.m. EST).  Maybe I'll even bring some friends along for the ride if they can make it!  If you guys have a time/date preference, please post it in the comments and I'll try to take it into consideration!  Last stream was about 2 hours long, but this one will most likely take longer due to the fact that I'll have to draw Z which is hard.  Expect about 3 to 4 hours, unless you guys would like me to do requests/talk a bit longer afterwards which I would gladly do!  I'd be happy to even show my binder of the pages, and perhaps even skim through and show some of my favorite arcs or pages if you guys would find that interesting!

    To find out more, subscribe to my Youtube Channel, where I will be streaming!  You guys can also check out last time's stream here for an idea of what this one might be like.  Last time, I had no participants so I hope this time I can get some more participation.  If you guys have any suggestions, comments, complaints, or the like, please comment below or shoot me an email right here and I'll see what I can do for you all! <3

Minecraft, Ticket to Ride, and Guardians Blind Box!

      So, after a long morning of intending to edit videos and not, Jaimi rang me up and asked to hang out.  After my chiropractor appointment, I went with Yams to the mall with a shiny $25 gift card from watching Connie's pets.  At first, I couldn't decide what I wanted and got bummed about some stuff I'm going through, so we got some amazing Dippin' Dots and wandered around.  I popped into Gamestop to ask why my 3DS's internal clock resets every few days, but didn't get an answer.  I instead walked out with a download code for Minecraft (which I've been dying for) and $5 more on both my pre-ordered Wii U games.
       We also got some delicious Candy Craze and even got our pictures in a picture booth finally.  You guys might remember my Peapod I got for Christmas.  Since then, Jaimi and I have an injoke that when the Tinker is over, she calls herself the "least happy pea."  However, this peapod is only 2 ^^  And we are the most happy peas!
     I finally decided to get Ticket to Ride: Europe.  My sister has the original so I decided to get the European one!  I LOVE TtR, plus, it's playable for 2 or more, which is nice for the times I only have 1 friend over.  I also got a Guardians of the Galaxy blind box and did a quick opening video!  Hope you guys enjoy!!  <3

*UPDATED* Adventures with Lea #2: My First Chiropractor Appointment

     Hello everyone!  You've probably noticed a sparsity of updates.  That's because I wrecked my back 2 weeks ago and it got progressively worse to the point of being unable to really think without the pain, so I just focused on getting my videos up instead.  I've also been working hard on a new series of posts about Amariel since I saw some interest in Mate.  Plus, I'm working on a new Pets post with even more animal characters!  And, to wrap all this work in progress stuff up in a bow, I've also been contemplating uploading segments of my comic on here starting from page 1!  I'd really like some feedback on that!
    Now, as I said, my back was very messed up by lifting a heavy box of books for Tristan's wedding 2 weeks ago.  At first, I thought time and medicine would make it better, but I soon discovered it was getting worse.  Since then, I've had trouble walking or bending over to do anything, hanging out with my friends is painful, and even just lying down can get uncomfortable quickly.  Two days ago, I finally decided to just go to the Chiropractor for the first time ever.  If you all remember my first cavity, then allow me to now explain to you what going to the Chiropractor is like.  Updated 8/8/14 7:30 p.m.

    First off, I was given a pile of paperwork a mile high just to get in.  I had to sit in the main lobby alongside
many people 3 times my age and fill out the forms about my health history, insurance (which I had to call my mom to find out about), and other stuff.  This paperwork took me near 20 minutes to complete.  Once I finished, there was a short wait before I was led into a secondary lobby with 8 chairs.  Most chairs were occupied, and I prefer to sit away from people, so I picked the seat as shown in the diagram and held my bag in my lap.  We were not allowed to use cell phones in the back area, so I settled to watch Cupcake Wars on the TV.  Then, HE entered.

     Let's call this man "Bob" seeing as he had an equally generic manly name.  Bob strode in.  He was a larger, older man with a t-shirt and weirdly short shorts.  He had a sort of strange, almost southern but not quite accent and asked if I minded him sitting next to me.  I of course said it was fine because anything else would be completely rude, and continued to watch the screen.  You know in all those war movies, the main character meets a talkative friend on the plane/car/other mode of transportation that chats him up enough that the audience both hates and feels sympathy for him?  You know the one: the one that the main character hates but when he dies valiantly on the field of battle (probably 1st), the hero has to cry a little and admit he liked him?  That is Bob.
    Bob began to chat me up bout how he was in a motorcycle crash with a truck (which of course concerns me, since The Tinker rides a motorcycle) and how his neck and part of his back were broken.  I tried to make the simple placating nods and mhms when needed seeing as I'd rather not freak out.  Then, he told me about the Chiropractor.
    "Yup, they put me in that neck strechin' thing last time an can you believe it it broke!"  My heart stopped.  "Yup, little piece cam flyin off the top.  My neck was about this long!"  He laughed, showing me about a foots length between his hands.  I'm sure I paled, thinking about the machines breaking.  "See, they just leave ya in a room!  I mean ya got yer panic button but sheesh."
    "O-oh.."  I squeaked.  My anxiety began to flare up.  Will they hook me up to this medieval torture device only to have it break with me in it?!  He nodded and talked some more about how the place expects him to come in 5 days a week and all tht jazz.  I watched Cupcake Wars.  Occasionally, workers would pass by and wave to him, all knowing his name seeing as he was apparently there everyday.  At one point, he even motioned to it informing me that "you can get some real good ideas watchin this stuff!"  Finally, I was called to meet my chiropractor.

Sad hospital dress is sad
 An interesting thing I noticed is that all the Chiropractors were men and all the masseuses were female.  Most likely because of the force it takes to pop a back and such.  Anyway!  The chiropractor checked my back and found out it was knotted pretty badly.  Afterwards, he said I would need and X-Ray and led me to a room where i stood in front of the X-Ray machine.  All no big deal, but all I could think of was hoping there was no neck stretcher in my future.  I did have to put on one of those dumb open back hospital dress things to take the X-Ray because I had a zipper on my dress, but that was the worst of it.  I was lead back to the hallway to sit.  Of course....he was there.  Bob.  Yet again.  Just a crazy random happenstance...so I think.  I go and sit 2 chairs away from him on the edge of the first set of 4 chairs, as he is sitting where I was.  He was mostly silent this time, although he had shed his outer shirt and was in weird short-eralls and a muscle shirt too small for him.  I stared at the screen telling Chiropractic facts as it explained why popping backs is a thing and such.  Bob once again attempted at small talk with announcing that the Barefoot Contessa really makes one hungry.

    Finally, I was called into the massage.  I laid face first on a table and got a lovely massage, although half of it hurt like hell.  I was nearing nap capacity until...I heard a voice.  "Yup, got hit with a truck!"  No. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.  As it turns out, the rooms are designed in a U shape, with essentially a bed on either side of a wall and a connected back area for the stuff.  I had the good fortune to be in the same room as Bob.  Finally, he quieted down.  
Me and Bob....agaaaaaain
     After the general massage, the masseuse said she was going to hook me up to something with the world electro in the name and I nearly panicked.  She explained that it would be patches on my back that would send little electric pulses for 10 seconds, wait 10 seconds, and repeat for 10 minutes.  I whimpered and tried to put on my brave face and was like "Oh ya, totally, I'm fine with that."  Truth is, it's hard to explain.  There are 4 patches placed on wherever the pain is.  For me, it was 2 on each side of my lower back.  I'll warn you, they are very cold when they put them on, but not for long.  Then, the slowly crank up the pulses until you say to stop.  I THOUGHT it would be like the electric chair, but was surprised to find out it was more like a weird buzzing feeling.  It felt as if someone was grabbing my back and squishing it together, and then letting go.  I would say it's like someone is drilling into your back, but that conotes that it hurts, nbut really it just feels like someone is pushing a vibrating stick into your back slowly and then stopping.  It's weird.  They also put what I assume was a giant, thick blanket over me for warmth which was fabulous.  (Random side note-I have 7 layers of blankets on my bed because I like heavy blankets.  Please tell me I'm not alone in this?)  I decided to distract myself by doin the math of the whole thing.  10 seconds every other 10 seconds, so 3 times in a minute.  10 minutes means 300 seconds work of shocking and 300 seconds worth of not.  I played this game in my head, figuring out how to program such a thing and trying to explain in my brain what to say in this post.

   After 10 minutes, the patches were removed.  The nice but weird thing about the patches is they feel slimy, but don't hurt when taken off like a bandage or peice of tape and come off nice and painlessly.  After that, she put on a thing that was some kind of ultrasound, that I didn't feel at all and was similar in the cold department.  I was nearly asleep, with my hair plastered to my face, when I was told I was done.  I got up and my cheeks felt weird from being smushed against the head-holdy thing and my hair was floating everywhere like little Medusa snakes.  I fixed it before I was led to the Chiropractor (the same guy as before), who was able to pop a huge part of my back so yaaaaay.  I got my bill, went to the front, and paid the fee and began to head out until an all too familiar sound came from the door.

   "Take care Bob!  See you next time!"  Out he came and walked to the parking lot.  Of all the things, his red motorcycle was parked beside me ;-;  
   "Beautiful things aren't they?"  He said slowly getting onto it.
   "Yup..."  And with that, I drove away.

Lea's Tips:

  1. Know all your information
    1. Know your insurance, medical history, and all that jazz.  I'm lucky enough to be old enough to sign most stuff for myself now, but that's also a curse since I had to call mom to ask which made the whole process take longer.  Also know if you've been to the hospital/had bloodwork done in the last 6 months.
    2. Be totally honest on the paper.  They're basically doctors, they need to know.  No secrets guys.  And be prepared for them to ask you the same things over again. 
  2. Don't be afraid to say you're not comfortable.
    1. Every 5 seconds they'd ask if I was comfortable with one thing or another.  I highly suggest that you be comfortable with people touching you, which I know many people aren't.  You can tell them at any time if you're unhappy.
    2. Don't be scared, since they want to make you feel better and feel as comfortable as you can while they fix whatever is wrong.
  3. Don't pretend not to be in pain.
    1. You're there for a reason.  If they poke a part that hurts, say ow or make a sound, otherwise, they can't help guys.
  4. Try to have your hair tied back or out of your face
    1. My hair keeps getting stuck to my cheeks and it can get extremely uncomfortable if you don't adjust your hair before you lay on your stomach.  I suggest a pony tail for girls with long hair, or for guys and I, just sweep it out of your face before you lie down
  5. Don't wear necklaces, shirts with bejewling or other fancy things, and don't wear dresses.  Wear flats or other closed shoes.
    1. I made all of these mistakes already.  You will be lying on your stomach and if you're wearing a necklace, i will feel awful and might get stuck under your neck and I'm sure I looked weird flopping like a fish to fix it.  My shirt also had tassels that got caught also, so be careful of those.
    2. I was lucky to wear a zip up dress, but if you're not so lucky, just wear jeans (or sweat pants are better) and a T-shirt.  It's just easiest.
    3. I wore sandals to my second visit and was trying to keep them from slipping off the whole time.  I wouldn't necessarily suggest tennies, but flats or shoes that say on easily are the best bet.
  6. Don't go on an empty stomach
