This. Entire day has been a COMPLETE waste. I had planned to finish all my Xmas shopping, and get a few things for myself (embroidery floss for finishing a project, base boots for a cosplay, lotion, and some other things).
So I got delayed a whole hour even getting the hell out of the house, and it was raining and miserably cold. Bus is late, crammed full, and fucking STINKS. I finally get to the mall, and foolishly decide to take a 15-minute walk to Michael's. I'm Half frozen by the time I get there, and guess what I discover? THEY'RE OUT OF EVERY DAMN COLOUR OF THREAD THAT I NEED. I took a gigantic freezing walk, for NOTHING, and was so upset because of it that I almost yelled at the manager. Then I trek all the way back to the mall with hopes of finding the OTHER things I need. Xmas present for my boyfriend's sister? Nope, the stores all stopped stocking what I was going to get her. Base boots for cosplay? The only half-suitable pair I could find were way too expensive, and I was dejected enough that I couldn't be bothered to actively shop for any clothing items or such either. Everything else I was looking for? Well of COURSE not! If I could ever find anything, I'd have too damn easy a time, wouldn't I? And then while my starving, tired and near-tears self is dragging my feet through the infuriatingly noisy and crowded mall to get something to eat, I get called that I've had ANOTHER schedule change, which ruined most of my plans for next week. And it's still shitty outside, dark now, and to go home, I have to take the damn bus again, which is tolerable at best, especially if I'm already in a lousy mood.
And here I was,wanting to have a NICE day out for myself. I should have just stayed the hell in.
Artist alley, costumes, businessey things
