Much has happened in my life, but (as per usual) can be summed in a few points.
I think I mentioned in one of my previous posts that I was going to Disneyland for my sixteenth. Well, now I’m back. Granted, the actual time spent in Disneyland was only three days and I could’ve blogged anytime after that when I was staying at my brother’s house, but there’s only so much time you can spend on a computer when you’re with family you get to see approximately once a year. Especially brothers.
Overall, the trip can be summed up as awesome. Disneyland/California Adventure was fun. We did two days in the former and one day in the latter. But as much fun as it was, I felt slightly let down. When you go there as a child, you see princes, princesses, cartoon characters from your favorite movie, etc. But when you get older, all you see is a person in a costume. It sucks a little, because then it (Disneyland) is reduced to what feels like a galvanized amusement park. That being said, it was still fantastic. As was spending time with ma famille.
So, from what my teeny-tiny memory can recall, I never mentioned the fact that my sixteenth birthday party, complete with a dark chocolate cake that had “221B” written in yellow icing on it, was kick-ass. I got a cellphone from my parents, and its now hard to imagine life without it.
Well that didn’t make me sound like a brainless teenager at all (note the sarcasm.)
But since I mentioned “Sherlock”, I now realize that I’ve never “Sherlock” before (extensively, that is.) My parents don’t understand my Sherlock obsession (probably a good thing), but they (especially my mum) are absolutely lovely about it. As a surprise, they ordered me a deerstalker off the internet. The next time I took the city bus to school, I wore it and was determined not to take it off until I got into class. I got some pretty weird looks from people, but while I was sitting and waiting for the city bus, one of the school buses passed me by, and the driver did a double take, patted his head, and gave me two thumbs up. It made the whole thing worth it.
The list of people who do understand it, though, extends to my friends and many of thousands onboard the S.S. Tumblr-Sherlockian Fandom (which reminds me, if you want to find me on there (Tumblr), my URL is mycakeandsherloaf. Enjoy yourself :D). If you’d like to hop on board, the cost of the ticket is nothing. Simply your soul and the more-than-occasional bout of flailing with delight will do.
Anyways, I got back from California a few days ago. Well, more than a few, now that I think about it, but I’ve done so little it feels like less. The first day back at work was semi-hell, and the second day was fantastic. All the same, I’m always on the lookout for a more favourable job.
Last night, I pulled the first all-nighter I ever pulled with no-one else there. Sleep finally came at around six-thirty AM, and left three and a half hours later, when I had to get up and go about my day. Surprisingly, it’s almost nine thirty at night, and I’m still going strong.
As always, a huge thank-you to my faithful few who stick around despite my erratic posting. Though there may long, drawn out dry spells, I shall never forget to blog at least once in a while. *blows kiss*
All my love, Jessi.
