What You Want is Now


Hero Pack

Posted by DeeVee , in MOCs Mar 02 2015 · 295 views
This is so dumb but I desperately want to go down to the Fashion Valley LEGO store and buy a few cheap sets and get some Hero Packs even though I already have dozens of those orange masks. I just want the stickers and I want the map and I just like getting the polybag. Curse the weird collector impulse.


California Two

Homesick, California, Life
I don't know. I'm having a hard time adjusting to this new life, and it's taking a bit of a toll on my sense of... I don't even know?

In theory, everything here should have been a great move: better weather, better pay, a car for the two of us, a new career for Maddison, LEGOLAND trips, discounted LEGO purchases, a major metropolitan area to play around in, the beach, food, etc.

But it just doesn't feel right so far. My new store sucks, and as dumb of a job as "Starbucks management" is, it's where I'm at while I pay off my bills and then finish school for my real desire, and it's a job I'm incredibly good at, and one I actually enjoy immensely, which is more than I can say for the high-paying jobs several of my university friends have. But this new store is miserable. Anyone following me on Twitter (and if you don't like language you shouldn't) has probably seen the frustration bubble over, but the entire thing is just... It's a mess. It's a chore. I wake up and I hate going to work. But it pays well, and there is supposed to be a promotion spot for me in the coming months too. But I just don't know if I can make it that far? I'd try to jump ship to LEGOLAND with Maddison, but because she works there, I am unable to pursue a job at the model shop by default, and I don't think I'd want to anyway? System bricks are fun and all, but they're not my passion.

I don't know. Random late-night life update. Since we finally have an apartment and internet in it. I'm assuming things get better from here.

California, LEGOLAND, LIFE
We have been in California now for... ten days? We're currently hotel livin' it up outside of the tippy-top of North-East San Diego, halfwayish between my work and Nukaya's LEGOLAND lifestyle. It's been really weird. Like, I always knew palm trees were a thing. But you guys. They are a THING.

Also no one told SoCal that it is winter? Today was 80F.

Like??? Why do I even own jackets.

LEGOLAND is cool though. We went the other day and I liked it.

I am missing PDX something fierce, though. Also Micah. Miss you, nerd! :(


Got it framed

At NYCC, Julie had an extra gift for the three of us who had been under NDA with her for several months:

It is signed by the designers, and is apparently one out of ten total posters printed of this image. We finally got a custom frame for it, and now it's all pretty!

Just in time to get packed up to move to California, lol.

California, life happenings and 1 more...
What a year. So many things happened! I'll get to a real recap of the year eventually, but the year decided to throw one more crazy curveball at the last moment.

Last week Nukaya got a call from a job she'd applied for, and they wanted her to come and interview. So she agreed to the interview.

So we booked plane tickets.

To San Diego.

The interview was at LEGOLAND, and we found out this week she got the job. Maddison will be a model builder for LEGOLAND parks, and we'll be moving from the lovely, yet cloudy, Portland to the eternally sunny and also lovely Southern California.

In a month!

We will still be at BricksCascade here in PDX in March, but California beckons.
