Hey everyone! I have no idea how many of your are still active on here, but I decided to write a long journal anyway.
Just as the title says, I'm back living in America. Yep. And it's weird. Like really weird. Last time was last summer during my vacation days and it was only for a week, so it didn't affect me as much. That and all the places we went to back in Utah are big tourist spots and there were a lot of foreigners, so it didn't really feel like being back in normal everyday American society. Now I am, and I stick out like a sore thumb just as much as I was the only white person in my neighborhood in Korea. I can actually understand people around me now again, and while that's nice, I'm so used to everyone NOT understanding me and me not being able to just chat randomly that my routine is thrown off. I'm now sleeping in a lot more, where I used to wake up at 5:30 in the morning on the dot no matter when I went to bed. Everything is just weird.
But that doesn't mean I'm not working on getting back into society. Because I was actually able to save a real income I actually have money, and since I'm moving back to Salt Lake in Utah next month on my own (with a very close and dear friend) there were big priorities. Like getting a car, and a new phone. Both have been checked. I officially own my very first car. A used but really nice silver 2012 Subaru Impreza to be exact. Lots of monthly bills. It feels weird driving again after riding taxis, buses, trains, and planes for the past two years. And my new phone is now literally the TARDIS. Got myself a TARDIS wallet style phone case from Etsy, the home screen is Eleven's first console room (my personal favorite of them all, followed very closely by Nine's and Ten's) so it's bigger on the inside, and the ringtone is the classic TARDIS noise. My dad calls me so many times just to hear it go off. LOL
I missed out seeing and/or meeting Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Billie Piper a couple months ago when they were at Salt Lake Comic Con. I literally cried since people I know were posting their pics with them on facebook and all the others that bombarded tumblr. Because I'm not missing out on anymore fandom related things (cough the Doctor Who World Tour in Korea when Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman came and I missed them at the airport in Korea by just a few hours cough AND missing them by a day when they were filming Peter's very first scenes as the Doctor when I was in Cardiff last January) I made sure to buy my VIP ticket as soon as they were available. Yay my very first Comic Con!! And I learned last night that we can vote for people to return and if there are enough votes they will try to get them back (and it helps that Salt Lake is nearly as huge as San Diego, so they get A LOT of really good guests). Karen has already been to Salt Lake twice in less than a year, but maybe, just maybe if my lucky wishes come true, Matt will return. I of course voted for everyone who was on the list of new or old guests who have been in Who besides Matt, Karen, and Billie, like David Tennant (whom I'm also in love with through Broadchurch and The Decoy Bride, one of my top 3 absolute favorite romantic comedies, please watch it; he's so adorable I want to hit myself with a shovel), Alex Kingston (don't even get me started), Arthur Darvill (BBBBYYYY), Colin Baker (whom I just recently found out will be in a future episode of Vic's Star Trek Continues I'M IN THE CREDITS OF THE SAME PROJECT AS THE DOCTOR AHHHHHH), and Paul McGann (the freaking love of my life for classic Doctors I love him so stupidly much). Out of all these guys surly at least one or two of them will make an appearance. Matt will always be 'my Doctor', but all of them are really important to me and I love them all so so much, but...but...Matt. *sigh* I did not know when I started watching Who I would love him so much. I didn't expect to like Matt at all to be honest since I was like so many other and thought he was too young, but he and his Doctor alike speak to me so incredibly personally it literally scares me to see someone I can can identify with that much on a stupid tv or computer screen.
But anyway, I've only been back for around two weeks, so nothing big has really happened yet. Oh! I finally can touch my Doctor Who series 1-7 blu-ray set, and I bought Time of the Doctor and Last Christmas on my very first trip back to Walmart. LOL So I just need series 8 now, but that will have to wait a bit since it's so expensive. And I bought prints of these absolutely beautiful art pieces by Adele here on DA.
I'm so incredibly tempted to commission her, but money...
But yep! That's it for now! Back in America and living so far. LOL Just wanted to let everyone know I am still here if you are, and I'm going to try to work on art again once I'm settled in Utah again. I really do want to play around with a few ideas I've had building up, and I owe gift art like no other to some special peeps. So here's to my hopeful more regular return!
