Journal Entry: Thu Apr 17, 2014, 7:42 PM
My hiatus is finally over because I got the beloved Internet back at long last! (After a very long three weeks might I add, where I had to rely on other means of entertainment, like those primitive things called "BOOKS".)
So what exactly transpired while I was away? Well, let me fill you in!
-> I've become hooked on Minecraft, as I was basically playing it every single day on the PS3. I seriously love it now.
-> I had my 7th deviantART birthday, as you all probably saw with the small deviation I put up for that.
-> My 19th birthday was last Friday, so I am a big, 19 year old man now! Woohoo.
-> As a birthday present, I finally got a new computer! So very soon, the hard drive in this clunky piece of crap I'm using now will be transferred into some (hopefully) sleeker, sexier thing, aptly named "Thunderbolt". I am extremely excited for it; it means I can actually play all my Steam games on my own computer! No more overbearing hardware limitations!!
-> I saw THE LEGO MOVIE and if you know me well, I am a huge Lego nerd. It was just FANTASTIC. I'm hoping to see it
again because it seriously blew my mind. I am in love.
-> Just this weekend passed was the SupaNova 2014 Convention in Melbourne! I went all three days, Friday through Sunday, and it was great fun. Granted, I was full of a cold so that did admittedly put a damper on things, but I managed to block it for the majority of the time there.
I did indeed cosplay, although it wasn't majorly amazing. On the Saturday I went as Jake the Dog, and I was briefly dressed as Tobi on the Sunday.
Now, the guests they had there were easily the best part of the whole convention! I got to meet Jeremy Shada (Finn the Human), John DiMaggio (Jake the Dog), Hynden Walch (Princess Bubblegum), Veronica Taylor (The original Ash Ketchum), Eric Stuart (Brock from Pokemon and Seto Kaiba from Yu-Gi-Oh to name a few roles) and Neil Kaplan (Optimus Prime, Madara Uchiha/Tobi)!! They were all really, really awesome people and it was such a blast to meet them.
SupaNova had a very special surprise for everyone during the Adventure Time panel on the Sunday where Veronica, Eric and Neil all came in to join them,and the six of them read part of the script for Star Wars Ep.4 in various voices of characters they've played! That was so much fun too!
That is basically everything noteworthy that has happened to me over the past 3 weeks, so yes. Also, my drawings over this time have been lacking. I just had zero motivation, but I will make an effort to scrounge up some sketches of things I did if you guys would like to see.
Anyway, onwards to the rest of the year...!
