atimidtempest (15 days ago) #24242343Haha, I think I can understand that too. My friend who graduated this year was like, "I've been in school since kindergarten, and now I'm just not..." But yes that's awesome! What's next for you?
Awww, thank you that's very comforting! <3 My uni is one that has a LOT of school pride, so it's been really hard telling people I don't feel comfortable here. LOL well that certainly describes the sororities and fraternities.... What GoT episode are you on? Basically we're known for being extremely rich, and kinda "buying" our prestige. We even have the right colors! (gold and red) We're also a huge party school. So yeah, everyone acted like it wasn't that big a deal, and also people were confused about why the LA Times had it out for us. One guy I know was like, "What, do we not pay the LA Times enough money?"
Apparently the president of the university had been receiving complaints about this dude for YEARS and the LA Times had been pestering him for over a year after getting footage of him smoking meth and popping ecstasy pills in his office. But NOTHING was done because the dean of medicine had done such a good job fundraising and increasing the prestige of the medical school. The LA Times article is here if you're interested for some reason LOL. No pressure, it's long, but it's also insane...

This is my second summer WF. Haha, well I think I went really crazy really quickly with figures when I started so I'm trying to slow down! Also my mom has kinda been bugging me about the boxes in my room... I really need to figure out how to display my figures before getting anymore!
Lemme go back in time and buy that figure from you... xD Omg I swear I always see it for like $300-$400. One time I saw an Ebay listing for like $200, but it was in Australia and then shipping would have been crazy. If I can just get something nice for under $200 then I'll be a happy camper. >_<
Yeah New Game was a sleeper hit! I liked the first season a lot, it was very cute. Haven't started the 2nd yet. Definitely a slow slice-of-life though! Hehe well a cheongsam is just a traditional Chinese dress and I'm Chinese. Although I grew up with Mandarin so I'm more used to word qipao. Cheongsam is more common in English for whatever reason though.
Yessssssssssssssssss you have to watch Zootopia! Have to have to! It's my all-time favorite movie! (Which has led some people to judge me, but whatever!) My friends wanted to start a Dungeons and Dragons campaign, and I'm basing my character off of Judy sort of. xD


Gaaaahhh I wrote this whole thing and then accidentally went to another page TWICE (-________________-).

Well, my (shoddy) plan is to keep applying for jobs until around December, at which point if I don't have one I'll come back home and get my TEFL certificate, which takes around three months, and then travel and head back and start applying for jobs again. Don't know how that's going to workout, but that is my plan so far lol. Very well thought out, I know.

I'm glad I could help, even if just a little! I just watched 6 today, so no spoilers! Actually, my sis just spoiled something for me the other day with a really random comment. I keep reminding her that she ruined me. Ha, you're not painting a very nice picture of your fellow classmates. There's got to be some people who are more grounded right? I mean, how can you say something like that? Ugh...people. Also WHAT?! How in the world does that guy still have his position? It's so sad that he can be that corrupt with no repercussions. Lol, this is going to sound super lame, but it reminds me of an old Good Charlotte I know (-_-;) song that had a lyric along the lines of "if you were caught smoking crack, McDonald's wouldn't even want to take you back, but you could always run for mayor of D.C." Too true lol.

Oh right, we talked about your first one last time, didn't we? Lol, I'm so sorry for forgetting! Can you tell it's my worst habit? I think everyone goes through that "buy everything" phase when they first start. I know I sure did. Though, now that I'm looking at your collection...you already have more figs that I do! Ah! Am I just a really slow collector? I mean, I know I am but jeez, didn't think it was that bad. Btw, did you buy item #396832 for the Halloween parts? If so, I want her for the same reason. Also I love that you have item #321897, aka gay Miku, ordered. I hope the final product comes out as lovely and colorful as the proto. Do you keep all your stuff boxed up? I hear you about finding ways to display figs. Do you have enough room or will you need to do some creative tetris? I like the way all my figures are set up, except the four I have on one shelf. They don't match at all and it drives me crazy, but I have nowhere else to put them! Ugh, I hope you don't have these problems lol.

Haha, hey don't worry! I'm sure that Enma's price will go down once all the new stuff starts coming out. Nothing stays expensive forever, right? Lol, can I still be impressed you knew the name of that dress, or should I consider it "cheating" :p? Have I already asked you if you speak Chinese? I probably did, yeah?

I will I will! I'll need to write it down or something, cause I never remember it when I'm thinking of movies to watch. LOL, do they think you're a furry or something? Omg that is so cute! Let me know how your character turns out.

atimidtempest (18 days ago) #24131638Oh damn! Congratulations. :)
So I actually am in LA right now. School starts in a few weeks, but I took a summer class. I wanted some time to explore LA, cause I feel like during the school year I never had enough to really take the city in. I'll be honest, I'm still having a bit of a rough adjustment period, ugh. My uni's dean of medicine was just caught in a HUGE scandal involving hookers and meth, and ugh, it's not even the scandal itself that bothers me really, but the reaction from my classmates kinda just shows all the things I really don't like about this school. Idk if you follow Game of Thrones at all, but essentially we are the Lannisters haha.
Mmmm, I don't think there's anything that I'm 100% getting, but a few things piqued my interest. That sucks but that Miku does look really pretty! I wonder how she'll turn out. Makes me a little glad I skipped out on Hanairogorumo.
I'm pretty excited for all the Enma Ai figure announcements! Nervous and excited for the long-awaited fourth season of Jigoku Shoujo. Hell Girl was a really big anime for me back in the day, and the Alter figure item #505 and item #301 and the Pure Neemo were sooooo expensive and grails of mine for a while. Fingers crossed that I'll have new, better, more affordable options!
Because I'm a completionist, realistically I'm PROBABLY gonna end up getting Hifumi from New Game! item #603756, although I'm not sure. I never opened up my Aoba so... ^^;
I skipped out on a lot of Digimon figures, but I'm still a huge TK fangirl so item #604459 definitely is one to watch. I don't have high hopes though, so many of those G.E.M. figures were obvious cash grabs at nostalgia. e___e
Oh and I don't follow Love Live! but I'm actually kinda curious about these. item #604584 I'd love some cheongsam nendo bodies. *__*
I think that's it for me! I did check up on some of the prototypes I was watching (not sure if they were painted during WonFes, but WonFes prompted me to check haha) and I do really love the paint job on item #581731 ! OH and I actually remember us talking about this last WonFes BUT JUDY HOPPS IS PAINTED AND AHHHH I'M EXCITED FOR HER ABOVE ALL ELSE. item #549863 She looks so so so so so good!!!!
(did you watch Zootopia yet.....? :P)


Oh, I didn't tell you before? For some reason I thought I had, which is why I wasn't like I GRADUATED YESSS AAAHHHH lol. It's such an amazing feeling! One of my friends graduated this year as well, but he's not as excited as I am. He's more like "what do you mean I can't go back to school?" lol. But anyway, thank you!

Don't worry about not adjusting just yet, I think it's completely normal. I don't think I ever really adjusted to my school (until my last year at least) and I had a friend who never did and ended up leaving his college and transferring to one back home. If you're sticking it out then you're doing better than both of us lol. Were your classmates thinking it wasn't a big deal, or defending him or something? I actually just started watching GoT, so I only know a bit about the Lannisters. So uh, are you guys all evil blondes lol?

Was this your first WF? If so, I'm surprised that there was nothing you were 100% set on buying. My first few were always like that, but now I'm lucky if I find just a handful of things. Oh you're right, that new Miku does kinda resemble the Hanairogorumo one. I love the Meiko in that line, so gorgeous!

I was really surprised by those! It's getting a new anime or something isn't it? Hah, I used to have that Alter Enma back in the day, but I ended up selling it to someone on here. I'm sure these new ones will be even better, considering how far the figure industry has come since then. They'll probably be way more expensive though.


You watch New Game? It seems to be popular, but I haven't watched it. I thought it sounded kinda boring, but the girls are really cute. There's SO many nostalgia bait figures lately! Have you noticed? I'm glad for everyone who's been waiting for figs like that, I just wish the series I liked would get nice figures cough BANDAI AND SAILOR MOON cough. Oh, I didn't see those Love Live bodies! The maid one definitely piques my interest. Did you know the name of that outfit off the top of your head?! If so I'm impressed lol.

OMG that Miku! I didn't notice it at all so thanks for the link! She looks adorable and I love her toothy smile aaahhh. I need it lol... Whoa Judy looks amazing, I can't believe they pulled that off. Gah, I KNEW there was a movie I've been meaning to watch but I couldn't remember that it was Zootopia. I made a list of other movies and everything nooo. I'll have to add it lol. You need to remind me like every few days haha.

atimidtempest (19 days ago) #24116554Yo Windsor, how's life going? :D Any WonFes announcements/prototypes you're excited about?

Hey! Good to hear from you. I'm still on summer break so I'm doing alright. Though, I guess I should be saying I'm on forever break...? Since I graduated idk if I can really consider it summer break. But anyway, what about you? Do anything fun so far?
This was a pretty meh WF for me, disappointingly enough. I was actually a bit excited, but I see now that was for naught. The only thing I put in my wishlist was item #604409 I hope it was better for you! Tell me what you liked/disliked.

atimidtempest (5 months ago) #18536375Oh wow, yeah that sounds like a full plate! Good luck!
Eeeep kittens! So at my university's dining hall, there's a cat that lives outside it and roams about. The last two days, it came up to me and jumped into my lap! So cute.
So I've been pretty knee-deep in school work. This semester I'm taking a lot of technical classes, and honestly not doing... great.... I'm in this honor physics class full of people who've already taken many AP Physics/calculus-based classes and whatnot, whereas my last and only physics class was a very bad algebra-based class in my sophomore year of high school. So yeah, it's been rough. We're using MIT's honors physics textbook for goodness sake.
I'm almost at the end of this current wave of midterms, and i've screwed up all but one hahaha..... Morale is low, but I need to make a come-back the rest of this semester for the sake of my GPA! Other than that, I'm still working in USC Rocket Propulsion Lab. We'll be launching our first rocket this school year next week! Last semester, we FINALLY succeeded in static test firing the motorcase. [ext link ] So yeah, that's gonna be exciting!
I think it's been a pretty low-key WF. The only stuff that really caught my eye were the nendos. The fat bear and Pikachu faceplate cases look so cute! item #549518 item #549521.
Actually actually I think what I'm MOST excited about are these! item #549863 item #549864
Zootopia is actually my favorite film of all time! Can't believe these are getting made! Eeep but I'm nervous about how their faces will turn out.
But yeah, my wallet appears to mostly be safe this year... for now....
How about you?


Thanks. My life got a lot easier when the mom cat came back though. It's been a bit since she has, but I'm still so incredibly grateful. I didn't really explain it in my previous message, but a cruel neighbor of ours decided to relocate her because he didn't want there to be kittens in his area. What he didn't know is that she had already had them, so I was taking care of them. It was SO hard.
Anyway, that's adorable! Friendly wild cats are the best. Is it your school mascot or something hehe?
Wah, why did you take that class so early, or was it required? I hope you do well, but you'll probably have to study your butt off.
You had midterms already? I have one in two weeks I think. Yes, work hard for your GPA's sake! I feel like mine isn't budging at all. Sigh, one or two bad grades and nothing seems to make it better, grrr. Whoa you're actually gonna launch one? I kept waiting for the thing in the vid you linked to blast off, but I guess that wasn't the point lol. Show me again when it happens.
YES THE FAT BEAR. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to add it to the db. That thing is so perfect. The penguin version just went up for PO. Are you going to get it? I STILL haven't seen Zootopia (I know, I know) so I can't be excited with you here, though I will hope they turn out good for you. Not too familiar with the company though. Did you check out their past work? Your list is quite small, though I applaud you for it. It's best not to spend so much, yeah? I have a slightly bigger list here (mfc link) but I'm not sure about the Portal stuff yet, despite the fact that the name of the list is "must haves" lol. I just ordered their ThreeA versions, so idk if I want a tiny shrine of them, or if just those figs will be enough?
