I never would have thought that adorable kids who play crazy soccer would make me feel such strong emotions of joy and sadness. It's so many episodes and the sequel is ongoing, but that's good because I don't want to stop watching this beautiful and fun show.
also Brickfair is soon but haha I've barely prepped for it
I'm coming in kind of late anyways, so oh well. I just have to be prepared to have fun as soon as I step into the convention center~
Boston was a fun city, though the public transportation system could be better. I visited four colleges, and Tufts University and Northeastern University stood out the most to me (the other two were Boston University and Boston College).
At Tufts University, I spotted this bird. A hawk I think?? But let's look at its face:
Also spotted at Tufts was this neat sculpture.
At a Boston seafood restaurant, our waiter showed off a huge live lobster. The restaurant was right by the water, where this island could be seen floating.
And finally, I brought home a new friend.
In Long Island, I really only went for the beach. We stayed at an aquaintance's house, which had cool bathroom windows that I made a composition with.
The beach was actually part of Sunken Meadow Park. Here are some landscape shots: 1 2 3
There was wildlife too. A dragonfly that could barely fly, bunnies!, and seagulls.
We had coffee at the park as a form of picnic, and we drank from these cups. Odessa is where I was born (in Ukraine).
And that wraps up my travels so far! My next destination is Brickfair!
Yesterday morning I also took pictures of my anime figures - Madoka and Luka Megurine.
I'll bring my camera, but I'm one of those people who gets so caught up in a place that I forget to take pictures. I'm especially bad at this when it comes to conventions (I was recently at AnimeNext. The result? Zero photos...). But I will do my best this time! maybe
Off topic: I've also developed a love for General Iroh (from Legend of Korra) after that finale. He is just amazing *u*
But in actual good news, my friend lent me her PSP for the break so that I could play Persona 3 Portable. I'll be all over the place during this break but hopefully I can play a good chunk of the game, at least. *v*
Tomorrow's the last day of school before Spring Break and you guys have no idea how excited I am to get out of school for a while. *v*
....On the other hand, I do have to do a ton of research for a US History paper due in May. And by a ton, I mean 50 index cards of notes. Fun.
I'll also be going on a mini-college road trip, to upstate and maybe in a bordering state, courtesy of my Saturday program. I'm not too interested in the colleges we will be visiting, but maybe that will change. I just need to overcome to huge wave of carsickness that I will likely experience over those few days.
In any case, I hope I get to relax a little. :>
In any case, I got a new computer monitor for my birthday. And it's fabulous [max]. Rather, more fabulous than my previous tiny, dirtied, white monitor. Even all my programs have yet to adjust themselves to the new resolution.
It's just wonderful. ;_;
