In April, i will be going to Japan all by myself, and the best thing is that i'm not even scared.
Old me would have pooped her pants buying that ticket, possibly literally, but i just felt fucking awesome!
I think... no, i know, that i actually squealed with joy as i got the confirmation email, and there may have been some dancing around the shop too (luckily i was alone!).
I never imagined being capable of doing something like this, but i am, and i will, and i can't wait.
Tokyo, especially in spring, is my happy place, my Narnia, my bounty beach, and it's been too long.
So yeah, i just wanted to share that with you, and tell you to get ready for weeks of Japan picture goodness!
Oh, and i get to see Paris on the way home! How fucking great is that?
I'm pretty excited about March too, by the way, in case March was feeling left out.
Good friends visiting, interesting projects coming up, and more spring.
The rest of this post is basically just pictures, cause i'm half asleep, and also in the middle of a Breaking Bad marathon.*
They're not very good pictures, i'm afraid, cause those are still in my camera and on a roll of film on my desk, but pictures, nonetheless.
You may notice that the post is a little heavy on the self portraits, and while that might come off as a bit narcissistic to some, i've come to realize that it's healthy to love yourself a little extra, when suddenly finding yourself single!
And also, i'm actually really proud of the fact that i am already able to fit into all of my old clothes, so what the hell, while i'm doing shit that's uncharacteristic of me, why not throw a little bragging in the mix!
I don't wanna bore you guys too much with my health and fitness crap, though, but i might post about it in the future.
Just a little. Consider yourselves warned!
So, the last few weeks in pictures. Go!
Wandering around Brighton on my own, on one of the few days the weather was nice
The pier was windy, but pretty, still
The best part about the convention? Awesome gym and pool in the hotel basement!
Ugh, black hats are hard to capture, but i like how this turned out, and i wanna do more weird in-the-face bead work, i think
Awesome sightseeing day with awesome people, and uhm, yeah, i do levitate, if you were wondering
Sun in my bedroom makes me oh so happy
Yellow pants i ordered from Etsy ages ago... they come with a matching jacket, that makes me look like an absolute idiot, but i kinda dig it
The day i booked my ticket, i was totally euphoric and slightly caffeinated, and way happier than i appear in this photo
Last Sunday at a bad café with a good book
But shortly after i discovered a really good café!
Take away macchiato and a crusty looking hand, because oh yeah, i got my fucking hand tattooed at a convention, and i never get tattooed at conventions!
But more about that when it's healed enough to get a pretty picture!

I've been doing some redecorating, which is hard when everything is almost perfect the way it is, but i think i've still managed to make it more... me
All of my cacti live in the bedroom now, and i think they like it
This is what working out every single fucking day since mid January has gotten me so far!
I've been skinnier and i've been prettier, but i've never appreciated my body before... now i make sure to focus on what i've already accomplished, instead of beating myself up over
the parts that still need work.
the parts that still need work.
Also, i'm so happy these pants fit me again, cause they're like my favorites!
Finished painting number two of two new guest rooms last night... i like this color better than the first one!
These guys started blooming this morning... i love spring
*Seriously, i'm on season 2 and still not really into it.
When does it get good?
