I've been counting down all year, and it's finally almost here!

what are you doing these last couple days to get ready?

I'm doing some packing...And making sure I packed everything we need. x-x
We had to pack every thing for two people...In one backpack. Luckily only one of us is cosplaying. >.>;
Oi, not having a car really sets you back a lot.

Tomorrow night I have to give my wig a nice wash, and then I should be set.

I got a bit more packing to do tonight and tomorrow, but other than that we're in good shape.

I got my hair dyed a nice shade of purple yesterday so I'm all set for the weekend!

Still painting shirts right now lol. Tomorrow I have to dye my own hair and make contact cards.

My studio partner and I also just decided to make a sketchbook to collect drawings from people on our con travels.

I have so much left to do today, but so far I had my hair cut & colored, went grocery shopping, and picked up a wand from a friend of mine for a cosplay. Now I have to bake cookies for myself and my friends/hotel roomies, make dinner, pack, pack more stuff, check over to see if I missed anything a billion times but still probably won't be able to sleep because I will be afraid I forgot something, make lists, double check schedules... and probably other things but I forget atm... Going to be arriving at the hotel thursday afternoon...toodles!

At the last second, my friend told me that we may be stopping at Steak and Shake for lunch on Friday morning/afternoon before we head to Mitsuwa and the con. Thankfully I have coupons, so that'll be a money saver for the five of us. ^^

Otherwise, it's just the typical last-minute panic. "Do I have this? Is this packed? OMG, did I forget this!?" kind of thing. XD

Just trying to focus enough to get work done.

My packing list this year is pretty simple. Will make sure I write things down on Thursday morning, so that I will have all the essentials with me on Friday.

Thankfully the only homework I know of right now, is a poster I have to make that's due Tuesday.
It's basically just some info on the wheel of fortune, the coke vs pepsi wars, and aircraft airjacking.
o-o;
Info from certain years..
My teacher decided to base a project off of 'We Didn't start the Fire"


ANYWAY.
Today my plans are,
- Wash the wig
- do my eyebrows
- charge phone
- GO TO BED EARRRLLLLYYYYY
I feel like there was something else I had to do.


This week was ACT week for Juniors, so us Seniors got tues and weds off. And today is a half day. 8D
And tomorrow is prom so we have it off.
PROM = OVERRATED

I'm really hoping I can go to bed early tonight. x-x
Last night I had so much trouble sleeping.


I washed my wig a little bit ago....Now I just have to wait for it to dry so I can come it out. o u o

Oi.
I'm gonna bring a scarf to put on my head while I'm outside.
So if you see a girl in a school uniform with a ugly zebra print scarf on her head with pink fringe, that's me. xD
