Hauling, Working and Cinema Going: Life Update~!

Hello my fellow bloggers! Sorry I haven't put up a post in so long! I promise to work hard to keep this blog alive! In essence, I'm back and ready to roll!

Many things have happened since I last did a life update. Work has been going smoothly, I'm in three courses for the summer and my nursing application is well on its way! Whenever I log in to view my course info or to check my application status I feel so nervous. I wonder why that is. It's not like I'm falling behind or failing anything! Hopefully that feeling subsides...maybe it's because I'm worried that with a 30-40 hour work week nearly every week; I won't have enough time to write all my essays or do the assigned readings for my courses. I'm also worried about my application to the nursing program...apparently I'm missing requirements, looks like I'll have to call the school in the morning and see why!

With my new income I've been naughty and spent money on things I shouldn't be buying. The Body Shop has been having a spree of sales and you know what happens to me when things are on sale...I go a tad crazy. Most of what I bought are skincare items. The Vitamin C Facial Polish, Vitamin E Hydrating Toner, Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion etc etc. I should have made this entry a Body Shop haul...maybe I'll do that another time with all my new goodies! 

This isn't all the products I bought...I was too lazy to hunt all of them down XD

I also got this beautiful handbag from Aldo but it cost me 50 whopping dollars! The price makes me cry but I wanted a new bag for work (to keep my uniform in) and my old LeSportsac Fifi Lapin bag is starting to look worse for wear. I don't have the heart to donate it or throw it away (for environmental and sentimental reasons) so I'll probably just use it less often. It looks kind of like a robot! The color and structure of the bag is really what drew me in, I don't really like bags that look like a saggy sac hanging off one's arm or shoulder and brown is so neutral it could go with any outfit!
Speaking of which, this is the outfit I wore to the movies tonight with my friends! 

Looks kinda creepy like this...

We saw The Great Gatsby and I actually really enjoyed it! I was worried it wouldn't be as good as the book considering it has music from artists like Jay-Z and Lana Del Rey...those aren't exactly songs that come from the 20's but it wasn't overpowering and at times, fit alright with the actual film. I love Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan. They're all wonderful actors and I may have a slight crush on our favorite Titanic star as well as the old Spiderman. The romance between Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan was just...the scene where Nick invites Daisy over to tea and Gatsby gets all shy....WAHH~~ <3

This scene...makes me all warm and fuzzy inside~

After the beautiful movie we went to play in the arcade at the theatre! I played DDR for the first time in AGES and it was really fun! It can be such a workout! Not to mention it's also quite dfficult to play in a dress as form fitting as the one I was wearing! No matter though I was able to play all three the songs through and one of them was no other than Angelus by Hitomi Shimatani from Inuyasha! I got all excited but my three other friends didn't grow up watching the I was the only one humming the tune while dancing for my life!

I wasn't that great at DDR but it was fun nonetheless!

We also played Skee ball, four player Pac-man and a roller coaster like game called Typhoon (which was more of a ride than a game)...all in all, it was really fun! There can't be a better way to end the Monday!

Apart from these events, I've also been indulging in the arts and have found a new love in music by a girl called Priscilla Ahn. It's all so peaceful and pretty...all her songs have some sort of nostalgia attached to them. Here's two of my favorite ones: Rain and Oo La La

I get drawing inspiration from her too! Here's some art pieces I've been working on for the last little while! 

A Study of Arya and her facial expressons

A study as well, this time of Eragon

Trying some perspective work with Arya again, the feet could use a little work!

Eragon looking all pained and sad in this mixed media piece XD

...yes they're all fan art of the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini. I'm such a huge fan of the books! There'd better be a book 5!!!!

I've also hit over 300 watchers on DeviantART! I'm pretty proud of myself, I'm going to work hard to make it to 400 next and maybe beyond that! 

So there you have it folks, a little snippet into what's been going on in my life :)

I'll try to post more often so see you again soon! Also...sorry about the quality of some of these pics, I really need a new camera :(

Thanks for reading and ciao for now!
