You know how some say falling for your best friend can end well?
They lied.
The ones telling the truth were the ones waving the red flags goin "DONT DO IT! IT'S NOT WORTH IT!!"
Cause I've fallen for my best friend and turns out he's a jerk, a lying jerk, whose dating a chick i have a few classes with and I'm expected to be okay cause we're friends...
This. Sucks.

Sometimes I think all humans are jerks, and the ones who are seen as nice, are just lucky to always be caught on good days.

I wouldn't say that falling for a friend is inherently bad, but it certainly can end up so.

Sigh. There went my hope of finally getting to take gymnastics this year/fall. There's three clubs in the city; only one has actual classes for adults (one has "open gym", but I seriously doubt that's a good idea for someone who knows ABSOLUTELY NOTHING abou what to actually do on apparatuses, is ABSOLUTELY NOT FLEXIBLE and has NEVER done gymnastics before or anything similar. And the open gym doesn't have enough supervisors to just give you a private lesson). The one place that has adult classes, runs them from 8 pm until 9:30 at night which means if I had to bus back, I wouldn't get home until AFTER 11 AT NIGHT because of the stupid-ass bus schedule. HELL no. And then to top it off, it costs even more per month than dance, which I flat-out can't afford when I'm putting away nearly half my income every month. Fuck. I guess my only option now, until I have a proper job and a non-bus method of travelling anywhere, is to see if there's any other adult classes at my dance school I can take. I'd love to give acro a try but there's just one class listed and I dunno what level it's at.

Dear cosplay plans: Please stop changing on me so I can just get what I want and not have anymore issues >_<

I swear every SINGLE time I get something planned something comes along and ruins it!!! Like I was supposed to order my Haine Otomiya Student Council Summer uniform but my stupid brother made me order him two My Little Pony Shirts for like 60$ which is ANNOYING!!! ..sigh and then my friend who has agreed to help me with some stuff wouldn't stop whining about how hard it was to not go out to eat once a week and ugh....not to mention My plans would get shot down as I would find out that a costume was off by an inch and the shirt see through as hell >_< so from brothers, friends and stupid people in china being afraid of my big boobs (I hate my DD's) I am frustrated at the fact that I have had to move both of Haine's costumes to November when I had plans to buy her costumes MUCH earlier then this but people kept messing up my plans.....T_T no one cares.....

Plus mom doesn't want me buying any costumes after this year as she said I should reuse for awhile and such (Which IS understandable) so I gave up going to any cons this year so I could buy costumes for two years of conventions with plans to retire from cosplaying after 2014 due to me wanting to concentrate on school (well more like just not go to cons for a while if ever again.)

And......I am just frustrated that I had to spend 60$ on two my little pony shirts for my brother's (Who is 25) and basically said "YOU WILL GET THESE SHIRTS FOR ME! I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR COSPLAY SHIT" me: ".....do I have to?" Mom: "Yes because he's your brother" And then I find out that my brother is buying me a PONY shirt and I don't want it for my birthday i'd rather have a wig or a book sigh yeah sorry for the rant.....

Okay, but seriously... your work is amazing. It's no wonder why someone would commission you. But here's my question: Why the hell would she order from you if she's in Canada and shipping (even just inside the US for big props) is something akin to robbery? I mean, seriously, do your research (her, not you, obviously). And giving the time frame she gave you, she should be kissing your butt for doing such amazing work.

I really just want to tell her to shut up and suck the shipping, if she wants it so bad, or get a slower shipping, go to this particular con without it, and save it for another con. You don't spend that much on a prop just to use it once (at least I'd hope not :/).

Sorry if I’m just rehashing stuff, but I couldn’t believe the bull I was reading yesterday when I clicked on the marketplace.

I don't know? I informed her from the very beginning that shipping to Canada would cost quite a bit. She was fine until she heard that the shipping was a lot more than she anticipated. After that, she started telling me how I should have got it done a week earlier or even a few days earlier, which these were a pain to get done so fast. At one point I had to fix the shield because I wasn't satisfied with it and I wanted it to look a little bit better for her first con.

This actually was my first time commissioning someone from Canada...Not sure I want to do it again haha xD.

While I can understand her frustration, she really did need to do some research. Shipping is always expensive. Especially rush shipping.

I honestly doubt she understands how much work went into this. You're not a factory that can punch these suckers out in a day. I've made very small props myself, and they were exhausting to finish at my slow pace. Heck- I can't even imagine how much time you put into these, which honestly makes me appreciate your work all the more.

XDD I sure as hell wouldn't, at least not with a work frame of a week or two before the con. It takes that long just for regular (read: somewhat cheap) shipping. XD

But I hope you're not letting this whole thing get you down! Your work is amazing and that's why people commission you, including this ninny.
