      RTX 2015

      5 months ago

      *Sigh
      I wont be going this year.
      I have to save all my money for the larger end-of-the-year trip to Japan and Australia.
      I wish I could do all the trips but 1) money and 2) I can't take that many days off of work.


      Trips I am doing in 2015/2016

      May - Anime North - Canada
      Once a year (sometimes more) I get to see my oldest RT friends in person and have the most amazing weekend of the year. We finally catch up after not talking/seeing each other in forever. We have such busy schedules that often we dont have skype chats. But that is life! So it's nice to see them, uninterrupted for one weekend in May.


      December 2015/January 2016 - Japan/Australia
      Usually this trip is done every 2 years, and it's only to Japan, but since I got married to an Australian, it is time to meet his side of the family.
      So prior to our Japan trip, we will be spending 10 days or so in Australia. We're renting a car and doing a mini road trip. I hope to see and take a lot of pictures on my trip.

      After the fun in the sun I go back to a winter/cold environment in Japan for 2.5/3 weeks with a large group of friends and acquaintances. Some from RT and most are friends of friends of RT members. It's a lot of fun and interesting since we're all from different countries. We usually split off into smaller groups and hang out and explore Japan in our own ways. We get back together and tell each other where we've been



      Who is going to RTX this year? Or what else are you doing other than RTX? Any new exciting trips you'll be taking?

      Stress/Anxiety

      5 months ago

      Life Update:

      smiley9.gifFriends: Finally got to see some of my local friends in person. We haven't seen each other in 6 months+ for various reason (work, school, conflicting schedules). So it was great to have a dinner with them and catch up.Now to find time to skype with my RT friends. They know I'm busy, but I miss them

      smiley9.gifSchool: School is still stressing me out. Now to the point that anxiety is within my body and making me think I am having a stroke ;___; My arms were numb, my chest was heavy/painful and my headache turned into a full blown migraine that would not leave me for 2 days. I am not sure why I felt such anxiety. I have plenty of time to mark and do my own assignments. Maybe I over thought some things?

      smiley9.gifBody/Soul: I am stressed about a lot of things, not just school. So I finally found time to go to the doctor. And got blood work done. I should get results within 1-2 weeks. Which they then want me to book a following appointment. Maybe the workload of school + personal situations in my life has just combined and attacked me all at the same time...

      smiley9.gifMarch: March is becoming crunch time for school. Most assignments and presentations are happening in March. Or at the end of March. And it feels like a waiting month. Nothing as far I know comes out in March on television... though I think there is a movie or 2 that will be released this month that I want to see

      smiley9.gifApril: 2 Major papers due in April plus a large bulk of assignment marking will be done as well.... Which when I finish I will have 2 treats that I can pat myself on the back with... They are: GAME OF THRONESSS! ORPHAN BLACK! Some people would say expect nicer weather... But I live in Northern Ontario, Canada... so no... It'll still be cold and have snow on the ground while others will be getting spring. ARG

      The Month of February

      6 months ago

      On February 1st, Monty Oum died
      On February 2nd, around 3 am, my grandfather died.

      Not a great start to this month.

      My father had a weird feeling at 3 am. He told mum right away that he felt dizzy for no apparent reason. It lasted for a minute or two, and then went away. He later got a phone call (at 7-8 am) that his dad passed away at around 3 am. We booked him a flight ASAP to New York to be with his mother and sister and help with funeral arrangements. Unfortunately mum, me and David cannot go because we have to maintain the business and I still have school to go.

      The Masters program is hard and fast paced. I wont be taking time off, which in the end I guess it is okay. Keeps the mind busy. Because I wasn't to close to my grandfather I'm not feeling anything really. He had lung cancer and kept smoking smiley4.gifsmiley5.gif and was slowly losing his mind. Supposedly he kept waking everyone in the house every few hours, not remember that he did it just a few hours before. They put him in a hospice recently, 3 days later he died.

      I'm not sure he ever remembered me by the time he died. He mind was going. He sometimes thought dad was a teenager and was asking him how school was going. And sometimes he thought I was just a little girl. On our last phone conversation I would have to remind him that I was in university, which he would enthusiastically congratulate me about even though I already graduated twice with previous degrees. I don't know if he knew I got married. Not sure if grandma told him or if he would remember such information. It sucks, but I'm sure he was in a lot of pain from the cancer so hopefully he is at peace now. He was in his 70s I think. Unlike Monty who I believe left us too soon.

      The closest I got to Monty was seeing him at the RWBY panel in RTX in 2014. He seemed dedicated and in love with his work. I hope you have many adventures in another world, in another life.

      Married!?!

      7 months ago

      For a month already.

      Slowly editing the Wedding photos onto Deviant art. (less than 10)
      But atm they are all on flickr, unedited (300+ photos)

      It's a slow process since Uni is my priority.


      Japan pictures? Pretty pissed. I had a list of which photos I wanted to upload, and I lost the sheet. So I make no promises on when I will load them. LOL I've been promising for a year now, time to say it's not going to happen until it happens.

      Uni Update:

      smiley9.gif FINALLY marking
      The first semester, I wasn't assigned a class because the professor wasn't teaching any in my degree or specialization. So I was only in charge of helping her create the class for second semester. Which is now open ^.^ WOOT. 42 students in total. Online class. 20 assignments to mark per week, while I do my own classes. Loving it~


      smiley9.gifRebellion in Young Adult Literature
      Reading list (and correct order) Reading ahead so I will have a buffer
      1. Catcher in the Rye (Jan)
      2. The Outsiders (Jan)
      3. Chocolate Wars (Feb)

      4. Killing Mr. Griffin (Feb) Currently reading
      5. The Giver (Feb) PRESENTING
      6. The Hunger Games (Mar)
      7. Monster (Mar)
      8. Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian (Mar)
      9. Perks of Being a Wallflower (Mar)
      10. An Abundance of Katherines (Apr)


      smiley9.gifWomen's Studies
      Loving it, but not as much as first semester
      First semester was the theory. The actual feminist content. Loved it. Lots of talking/sharing and learning
      This semester we're focusing on Methods. So we're more so talking about how to do research, and how research varies between disciplines. Interesting because it'll expand how I research things (not just for WS but for English and History) but boring because the readings are dry and long. I wish they cut to the point. This is how you research in this particular way, bullet points. Bam Bam Bam, nice and quick, but no, it drags on arg. And then all we do is discuss those research methods, not the actual content of feminism/women's studies. Arg. I know it's necessary but I wish there was a better way of doing this second portion of the class.

      Uncomfortable

      7 months ago

      The amount of people who found Episode 10 of On the Spot, "funny" is very uncomfortable and disappointing.

      I have never been raped, I never want to get raped, but as a woman, I do fear rape a lot. A LOT. I work night shift, and before my husband came over to Canada and started working with me, I walked alone to my car at 3-4am in the morning. No matter the distance, I was always afraid. Afraid of being jumped, robbed, stabbed, and most of all the idea that it was a man who would decide to rape me before either jumping, robbing, or stabbing me.

      Rape is not funny. It's not "just a joke" that I should "get over" and develop a "sense of humour." Trust me, I am fucking hilarious. And I find a lot of stuff funny. There are plenty of jokes and styles of humour that do not offend countless race/gender/issues other there.

      Learn what rape culture is, because from my personal opinion, most of RTers that I bump into are #14 as seen in the comments section of episode 10

      Rape culture

      How to stop rape culture

      Rape culture realities tumblr blog


      Note: IF you don't think most RTers aren't like this. THAT IS GREAT. I am allowed to be upset and state that MOST of the RTers I have come across are now worse than before. You may have bumped into a better amount of RTers who aren't horrible. But because the site is is large, we can bump into to different groups of people with two different perspectives on the community. MOST of the people I've bumped into are not that great. The slim few, are great friends who I cherish. I wish RT wasn't turning into shit.

      December update

      8 months ago

      smiley9.gifStill have a few assignments to do before I can officially state I'm on Christmas holiday
      smiley9.gif30% - 15page Film Theory paper that I've been dragging in the dirt for 2 weeks is due tomorrow (Dec 15th)
      smiley9.gif6 more 2 page journals for Women's Studies due by early Dec 17th (no problem, just gotta stop being lazy and actually do them)
      smiley9.gifA special skype meeting on Dec 15th, ironing out the kinks out of something I'm not ready to reveal yet
      smiley9.gifDecember 20th - December 25th TORONTOOOOOOOOOO
      smiley9.gifNot sure if I'm busy or have every single day planned out on my Toronto trip. There are some friends who I haven't seen in dsjljsj years who I'll want to hang out with, as well as just chill around the city.
      smiley9.gifDecember 26th - January 4th Working and slowly reading books for my next semester, which I hope will be way easier than this semester was. I only have 2 classes to worry about, which will allow me to dedicate more time to my Graduate Assistant job that I feel I really slacked off in arg.
      smiley9.gifThis is the semester I really have to figure out what my major research paper will be about, I have 3 ideas:
      smiley9.gifSexism in video games (you know it's a thing, don't argue me on this)
      smiley9.gifTransgender-ism (though I love the topic and want people to be more informed I don't know what kind of argument to make for this topic)
      smiley9.gifThe removal of human categories (heterosexual, bisexual, homosexual, pansexual etc...) and how removing those categories (which are recent creation.... I think late 1800s early 1900s), and going back to a category-less style will create less prejudice/hate between people.


      That is what has been going on in my life. It's why I'm not as active on the site as I use to be. I hate not having free time to play video games, but I don't allow myself to play them during school semesters because they are too distracting. (though I've cheated and played some... bad Kater!)

        Hold your tears! Stay strong! I am sure they'll come back online in no time! In the mean time! 1500? Why so little, if you can keep up with all of them! You should add more... Go out and look! Im sure there are many 1+ Karma users who are lost and need a good friend who talks with them 24/7! Share your love of conversation! Keep at it, all those images and journals that you haven't commented on! Or sneak up on new friends with your telepathy! You go Glenn Coco

        That's why you must be devastated! All those people, not signing in for months at a time! How to keep up with them! And odd, that I went to their profile, and not a single comment on their image or journal from you! But then again, I unfortunately do not have the power of telepathy like you! They sure are lucky! They don't even have to go on RT to speak to you! Lucky friends!

        So do I, who I know, and talk to on a daily basis. I'm sure you keep up to date with all your friends! I mean, that's what I would do if I had 1500 friends, because friends vs "acquaintances" are 2 different things.

        Take for example your friend: kopralkitty, you must be sad that they haven't signed in for a month! Or spottygrace, or Rapture_X36 or especially dubstepking who hasn't been on since he signed up! ;__; You must miss these friends! Hopefully you're able to keep in contact with them off of RT, such as skype, where you can ring and talk to them! Truly you are a dedicated soul.
