Just watched Sailor Moon Crystal.
On the smallest screen ever.
But I’m alive.
I saw my babies.
I’m in tears.
Thank you planet Earth.
Got my first FULL two-week paycheck in a long time. Gave parents the majority though they tried to not accept it but I wasn’t having it. I’m just really filled with pride right now. Now just make sure I don’t overspend or over-save. I have a hard time balancing my budget. Well try to do something from my darling Grandmother & uncle tho.
I’m a full time teacher now!
As I recently told my co-worker, I am not much of an anime fan but Sailor Moon does forever holds a forever place in my heart. As basically it’s what Jem and the Holograms was to my older cousins. I have been watching it since it came on the USA network back in about 94 on Sunday’s before church service and didn’t miss a single episode when it moved to Cartoon Network Toonami block. (Still mad they replaced it with Hamtaro!) Anyways here some of my collection (I couldn’t get pics of some my single issues that I have since that’s in vault)
I picked the whole Tokyopop edition after my first summer forced internship in high school working at a local Elementary school at B&N for under 200 bucks since the local Boarders didn’t have the whole set. (Sigh Boarders you were always, always missing issues) I read them so many times over the years. Sadly, some of them were ruined after a snow globe fell off my shelf during an earthquake but they are still in pretty good condition despite some water damage.
(Better pic to show off the whole collection and no these aren’t for sale) ^_^
Don’t tell me you don’t remember these? Yeah never could complete these series as Richmond,CA was the WORST area for bookstores since literacy isn’t a high priority for the population at the time. None of the stores in surrounds Bay area cities ever had the rest of the books and in the 90’s there wasn’t a such thing as ordering ANYTHING on dial-up when your mom had to use the phone all the time. :(
I spent most of my last few checks & some of my unemployment collecting the first six volumes then I couldn’t afford them anymore. I got short stories volume two as a gift last Christmas and that made me happy.
I have been using the Sacramento libraries to supplement my collection! Hee hee it’s complete for 21 days at a time. (Also yeah I personally requested the series and found out that the librarians are fans too!)
My little legit VHS & DVD collection! I didn’t get the first two boxsets since I had most of it on VHS via recording them off the VCR and hey I thought we would ALWAYS have the greatness that was a VCR! (Yeah I kick myself now for not buying the first two series) >.< But I’m really, really going to save up and buy both Crystal and the classic series once Viz gets them. Might even buy a blu ray player finally.
Not much for appeal & such but I did snag these for cheap via Hot topic at random points. I really like the bag because….Most of these books can fit inside of it!
And there’s some of my Sailor Moon collection and I’m so happy I’m finally working again so I can foolishly spend my money on my favorite moon princess & planetary soldiers!
I think will just create another side blog but I hardly use this blog so I might as well talk about work here as well. I don’t know. I do need to post something somewhere though. Sorry for the lack of posts but I do actually work full time now & I still don’t have the internet at my house.
This probably one of the coolest things that has happened to me this year…thus far. One of my many Twitter friends was very kind to me and sent me a much needed gift-card that I was able to use almost anywhere. I was running low on personal care items which sucks because I like to smell good and no one will hire a stinky young lady. Right? Luckily, Bath and Body was having a sale so I snag this for a very low price of under 30 with said card gift! Now I smell good and Mr. Flash Gordon approves!
Thanks Twitter friend!
As you may or may not know I haven’t even been on Twitter or here for so long so for ANYONE to take a leap of faith on me and to be this kind really blows my mind. I’m glad I finally allowed myself to be myself online. If only just a little bit at a time.
If you just clicked this for my cat well Mr.Flash Gordon has his own blog found here: Click!
Anyway here’s everything I got that day. A bunch of children comics, one new button (the red one), the Batman and Robin poster, Saga, Batgirl, and a grumpy cat that was mad at me for abandoning him in the wee hours of that Saturday.
Some where pretty enjoyable some weren’t. Never could snag the Hip-hop family Tree or Courtney Curim. But all in all good day. Oh well I suppose next year or I’ll catch them in trade.
Of course, I also picked up Batgirl from Gail Simone.
Of course, I was a glass case of emotions after reading it.
Because of course, Gail Simone is an, awful, awful, awfully talented writer and stealer of all the best artists so they can suck the feels right out of you.
Oh yeah I never really did talk about my #FCBD did I? Well this was the first batch of got. I really like this shop as everything is easy to get, they have a children’s section, collectibles, Table top games and contests, and more. It’s a nice mid-size shop. I recommend it if you are in the area.
(I went to two different stores. One new one and the older one that I don’t like going too)
And it’s already gone! Due to the fact that there was a mix up and I needed to get yet another TB test and fingerprinted again! So I went to do that again but I was too late for the TB testing since my school is closing for the semester so I’ll probably just get that done else where. The fingerprinting cost so much but at least it wasn’t TOO much. (I thought it would be nearly 100 dollars but it wasn’t) SO POOF! Easy come easy go. So totally waiting for everything to clear up so I can start working again but yeah kind of sucks how I’m just a poor girl after all…
BUT I totally do have a JOB! So YAY me! Maybe I’ll change the name of this blog or add a secondary one to talk about what I’m learning on the job? IDK.
Anyways I hope the paperwork goes through fast and I can work because the next hurdle will be getting a transit pass and I’m getting tired of running for cash that I don’t have…yet.
But keeping with the positive the long job hunt is over and I feel blessed.
Hello dearest followers. Yes it is true! I too have finally gotten employed within the field of ECE and I feel so very blessed to find a center that share some of my teaching philosophies. Why the pay is lower than what I would like at least I would finally have benefits and have a means to provide for my family and myself.
However this does me I will be spending a lot less time online posting things on here and on twitter since I still don’t have internet at my house. I’ll miss hanging out with y’all but there’s so much work to be done and hey I’ll just save up, move out of my parent’s house, and get my own internet! (Probably won’t have a cable since its kind of useless)
So congrats to me!
Just saw & heard about VizMedia getting the rights to Sailor Moon & probably SMC as well. Now I’m typing thru blurry eyes. I wasn’t lying when I posted on Twitter during #NerdConfessions that I literally did my first college paper on Sailor Moon. Out of all the series I grew up with this one stuck around the most and it still holds up. I couldn’t be happier.
I just got done reading about Ida B Wells. This press slander against groups need to quit & people need to stop believe in the lies. I hope that one day everyone is able to use whatever restroom they choose to and I will continue to do my part to make this happen. (And more)
