I used to be really good on this whole blogging thing. At first it was around every two days but now its spanning out like a week between posts...Which I think is a bad thing because stuff will happen and then I will forget to post it here.

Problem is that not much happened during the week, until Saturday that is...because its MY BIRTHDAY ^_^ It makes me really happy, and for those wondering, I will be 24. That doesnt sound old when I type it out, but if I say it aloud its being ancient or something, especially with my grey hair...its really quite sad.

But I wont let it get me down! Besides, I still have to paint one of my iPhone cases to make it look like an Ocarina for my Link cosplay! Yep, I have the paint and stuff already to go, but I think painting it will pose the biggest challenge, because it is in two pieces and has three holes in the case for speakers, mic, butons and the computer connection. I need to put some batteries in the camera I brought with me and take some pictures along the way to show you all how its going.

Im really excited to start working on this will complete the cosplay and I offically dub it: iPhone of Time.

Yes, though its been quite a while, I am still here. Not much is new with me, just working, and sleeping during the daytime hours, though I feel like sometimes I am not getting enough sleep for what I do. For the past week or so at arouind 8PM I feel really, really sleepy and my body tells me to go to bed, but I know I need to go to work that night, so its a real problem.

How to fix it; I have no idea. I wish I knew. Maybe working graveyard shifts are finally getting to me, after roughly 2 and a half months. Who knows.

Another reason why Ive been away for so long was taht my Uncle came out of the blue and decided to stay here for a while. I'm indifferent to the idea, since its been very long since I have seen him last but something signifiantly changed with him: he is a WoW addict. For those not in the know that World of Warcraft. I never thought he would play video games but I guess it keeps him in contact with this kids and he enjoys it so its good right?

Anyway, when he came down, he brought his own router. I didnt have a problem with this, as he could have just connected to the existing network here and played, but nope. He removed our router and replaced it with his, requireing to change all the network settings for the different computers in the house.

I am keeping a closer watch on my iPhone useage now, especially since that the unlimited local calling, unlimited texts and unlimited data are comming to an end on the 26th of March. Ive been really good tough; they give a Gigabyte of data to use and to date... I have sent 8.2MB and recieved 156MB worth of data. Thats all my useage since December 26th when I bought the thing. I think I can stick to my plan so its not really something to worry about.

Tonight is my Friday night, as I get the next two days off of work, and Im loving it! I cant wait to get back to a 'normal' sleep cycle again; will it work? I have no idea, but its nice to dream right? Speaking of dreaming...I need to sign my lotto ticket I bought... Im bad I know.

There are a bunch of things that are on my list today...Will I get to all of them? Hopefully. They are time-consuming things like getting over to the University and seeing a counsolur and all getting my credits transfered and all that jazz. Laundry is another thing on my list of things to do; along with cleaning my room, and Im not too sure if there is anything else to do on that list...

But for Cosplay, I the list is easily two or even 10 times bigger than that. I figure that the Twilight Princess version of Link may be a little out of my reach. Its too detailed for me to jump right in as my first one, so I think Im going to settle for the Ocarina of Time version. Sure its much more simple, not a whole lot of detail, but its a good starter. Especially for making props, which I have some experience, but not a whole lot, and plus I like carrying around props; it brings it all together.

Other than that stuff, there is not much going on up here...other than the fact that its snowing, well more like blizzarding out there. I keep on thinking Articuno is living up here in Canada, close to Calgary. Now if only I had some Pokeballs...
