Good Things/Recent Happiness Thread!

Since we have a ranting/venting thread, why not have a thread to talk about the good things that have happened to us lately?

Did you make progress on your cosplay? Did you do well on that big assignment? Did something good and unexpected happen today? Did somebody show you something funny today?

Share the things that make you smile!

A little late date-wise since it was exactly a week ago, but MY AWFUL ROOMMATE MOVED OUT AT LAST! Anyone who saw my more recent rant posts knows what a HORRIBLE situation he was making for everyone else renting here.
And, it's gorgeous and summery outside and I've been drinking it in while I finish my cosplays for AN (that also look to almost certainly be done on time after a few panicky weeks when making a jacket mockup).

My several months of having to live at my grandma's house are coming to a close: I'll be beginning the process of moving out this weekend, and my new home'll be closer to my a job and the nearby college (I'm looking to go back and do a culinary course).

Not to mention I'll be able to dress androgynously without having to answer dozens of irritating questions.

So, like.... the ghost at work pushed our Coffee Machine off of the countertop!? Don't know what happened, but the boss and I were having a real good laugh about it. Think he was trying to help us move it, so we could install the new one... then realized that he was a ghost... and couldn't carry machinery....and *BANG!* XD

Annnnnd.... almost made a real, living, breathing friend today! Which is usually pretty hard for me to do without the internet as a crutch. >< Got high hopes, got high hopes!

So we decided to go to the mall I work at to get some new shoes (mall employee discounts are well worth it since I wear skate shoes) and on the way out, my mom sees a weapon of some kind (she didn't know what it was) and goes "Woa hey look at that, that's kool!" and I look, and I'm looking through the store window and there hanging on a pillar is a Keyblade..It's the Pumpkin Head Keyblade you get in Kingdom Hearts 1 from Halloween Town. I'm like "HOLY SHIT!! KEYBLADE!!" right? so I go in and there's no price with it..So I go up to the register to ask, and on the wall I see 2 Hylian Shields from the Zelda games!! And under it, a Master sword. Next to it? Bleach swords, a steel Weiss sword from RWBY and Lightnings gunblade from Final Fantasy 13. I'm stoked as shit now..So then while he rang out the people before me, I look right. And what do I see? Asuna's sword from Sword Art Online! Then Cloud's Fusion Sword from the Final Fantasy 7 movie..The crappy small one though becasue there is NO licensed one that's correct size. Then I'm like what else is in this eye candy store..I look left and KILL LA KILL SCISSOR BLADES!! Correct sized and everything. $60 or the pair!! I put $15 down today and am paying it off tomorrow. I'm so happy I went in for shoes now haha Might pick up the keyblade too if I feel like it..

Also, work has been noticing my hard work and giving me more hours. So that's a HUGE help.

I finished my final project in Apparel Construction early. So now I can use class time to work on personal stuff. I ordered fabric to make a swimsuit!Elsa but I'm not sure if it will come in before my next class on Tuesday. I might just get material to make regular Elsa so I have something to do.

This week I interviewed at a Joann's, got a perfect score on my final project and the presentation for it, and then got an email that I'd been offered the position. Now all I have to do is wait for paperwork to go through, and everything's going to be okay.

My 11-yo is about to become a middle schooler in a couple weeks and my 3 month old is about to hit nap status. If this piece of leather cooperates with the rest of this costume working, then I can be finished by tonight and all will be perfect.

Well, Stars, I went there today, only to find that the store has no visible name..Like, where there'd normally be a sign displaying the stores name, there was all of nothing..And I can barely understand the guy, so asking him doesn't do much good, and I saw no business cards. I don't think he understands English very well becasue I asked 4 times to see something before he finally realized what I was asking him....Each time..Like it took multiple times asking about any given item before he understood what I was saying. And there were no visible business cards, not that I could see anyway.

However I did look at some other prices on things. Which was a good idea. They have metal Attack On Titan swords for pretty cheap. $100 for a static sword, as in with no moving parts. $149 for one that was more accurate, and the bike brake you could squeeze and had a much nicer cord on the butt of it (look more "cable" ish rather than the static sword which just had a rope. in the series the handles are connected to the gear by a cable). And the wooden con legal ones were only freaking $25!! So I'll be picking 2 of those up too lol

EDIT:
Uploaded a picture of the Scissor Blades to DA. It's a combo of 2 pics. One of both pieces, and one of me holding them up to show size.
