It has been a long while since I wrote a proper journal, and a lot has happened in my life and it's pretty much all for the better!! Tomorrow I start my second year of my Illustration Foundation Degree; the first year was very fun, I got the highest marks I've ever gotten in any subject that wasn't English or Biology, and last year was pretty rocky, so I'm super hopeful and excited for this year. I hope I can spend a lot of it getting better at drawing and stuff.
I spent a lot of the Summer running up and down to London to see all my friends and going to cosplay meets. I ended up staying with friends a lot and I've travelled so much over the past few months, it's been really wonderful. I've made so many awesome friends and had so many fun experiences, this is probably the best, most enjoyable Summer I've had in years.
Some big events in my life are that; legally changed my name (it's now Luke officially, also changed my middle name); got a wonderful girlfriend who is amazing and super awesome (who I just spent the weekend with aaaaaaa it was a really great weekend); I got a high mark on an essay, and a high mark on my end of year project last year; I organized some meet-ups myself; got a ton of cosplay done on a very limited budget; and some other smaller stuff but!! yeah!! ah AND I GOT A CAT!! He is adorable.
The October MCM Expo London is coming up!! I'm super excited. I'm staying with some of my close, awesome friends and my girlfriend in her house u v u we'll be getting the train up in cosplay each day~ My cosplay plans, currently, are;
Friday > Eridan Ampora (Homestuck)
Saturday > Eridan Ampora (Homestuck)
Sunday > Leafeon Gijinka (Eeveelutions Group - Pokémon)
I was thinking about doing Cronus or Karkat Vantas on Friday but I love Eridan so much q u q that I kinda just wanna cosplay him for the whole of expo~! But doing one cosplay all weekend would get kind of tiring so... yeah. And I agreed to do Leafeon with my friends!! We're doing gijinka of the Eeveelutions!!
Right now, I'm currently watching Supernatural u v u I'm on season 2 already. I've been watching Dangen Ronpa, and Attack on Titan this Summer. I've been playing a ton of Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Minecraft and Touhou aha u v u Super fun. My close friends set up a Minecraft server and we've been creating a village. I pretty much made a mini-forest and built my house on top of it u v u
Anyway, I need to go, finish off the final bits of my project for this week, watch some Supernatural and get some sleep. u v u I hope everyone has been doing well!!
