Poetry, Stress, and Comic-Con! Oh Man!

Cracked

Some days I wonder how much will be too much.

My body is shielded by a facade of contempt.

The layers of every day problems keep me looking

average.

There are still so many things left undiscovered

within me

till my facade of contempt decides to

crack the walls of security that have held me up

this long.

Like a balloon with too much air,

walls bloat,

a body can only handle so many issues

at once.

The human spirit can only remain bright for so long.

Lately I’ve been trying to get back into poetry a little bit. I think that’s what I’ll try to do on here more often while working on the short stories. If that little thrown-together piece didn’t communicate it, I’ve been a bit…stressed. As usual, it’s about school, money, blah blah blah. The usual. Today, with some bright news, I can say that part of some Uni. issues have been resolved with a phone call I haven’t been able to get in over two weeks. Because it takes that long for someone to check on my paperwork in order to see that they’re REALLY there! Holy lordy, it’s a miracle!

But aside from that, stress  has been a bit controlling and I know that it’s just going to get worse once school starts up. New place, new people, too many people, and of course, the stress of looking for a job. Wow, I feel like every other college student. Fantastic feeling, am I right? Sometimes I really wonder what older generations think of us for feeling the way we do. We’re not lazy if we don’t have a job. We just can’t get one. Even with a degree that we put thousands of dollars into. It’s a sad system, but I always extend a warm congatulations to those who have made it. You go, sir’s and madam’s! You go! You sat through lectures, presentations, and finals to get to where you are. You have…succeed, and I congratulate you.

I feel like the majority of my posts have been about school, and sadly I feel that may go on until I can calm down, haha. Because of this, some of my more creative writing time  has been cut due to trying to reach advisers at school. Now, that doesn’t mean that all of my project are canceled, because the ideas are definitely still there. It’s just going to take a little longer than a two-week deadline for me, sadly. Despite those project being on hold for the time being, I have been keeping up to date with my stories that I post on WordPress:

The Wells Legacy has a  new chapter posted. It’s the first chapter of Generation 10, which is the final generation of this legacy challenge that I’ve been writing for almost 4 years now. Holy smokes, has it been that long?! Yup. 4 years on July 23rd.

A Woeful Lotus had a new chapter posted earlier last week, which I’ve reblogged on this page. The story is for more adult audiences.

Feel free to check them out if you’d like a taste of some sims 3 stories that I’ve been working on.

But really…thank you for sticking around, by the way, and hello to the new followers!  But as much as I have on my mind, I’d prefer to move forward to some more lighter things.

In pretty much a month, I will be packing up and heading to the West with my best friend for our little “last hoorah” before we go back to school. Plus, it’s just something we wanted to do! We’re heading to San Diego for Comic-Con International! Things are finally happening on our end because we’re actually going to cosplay at the con. We’re totally going as Loki (me) and Thor. Let me tell you, this is my first experience making a costume and I have no idea how professionals do it in like, four days. I’ve been sitting on my bum with a mini pink hot glue gun in my hands…gluing studs onto my pleather leggings. Ah, the joys of cosplay. BUT despite some setbacks I feel that we will complete our projects and they will look fabulous! So far so good, actually. It’s really exciting. So, there’s that to look forward to. When the time comes, I will definitely be posting pictures of our adventures. They will include much more than the con, because we actually only got a 2 day badge due to how quickly they sold out. Seriously. It was insane.

Phew! Well that was nice!

From all of that, I would like to leave off with some questions, which would be really awesome if you guys offered your two-cents [:

How do you handle stress? Do you do anything special to cool yourself off?

Have you ever attended a comic book convention? what was your experience like?

Well that’s all for now, my dears! I shall get up and get myself some coffee! So for now, I tip my empty cup at you, which will soon be filled with delicious brew, and I wish you all a splendid day!
