Not sure what the next weekend will entail as we’re waiting for some input on some friends who are installing some software far up North on whether they will be back this weekend. Worst case scenario is still good; Staying home/going out with just my sweetie, and arrange some movie-watching at home with a couple of friends on Saturday or Sunday. I’d also like to go to IKEA to buy a couple of glass closets I saw there a while ago, so they don’t sell out and I get stuck with something not as good.
I also need to go to Jikai! pick up my anime purchases and possibly some new paints and brush for some model kits or miniatures. Yesterday I was at my parents’ place and was looking for the Eva 00 (kai) model kit I bought about 8 or 9 years ago, and once again I didn’t find it. It’s too bad because since I’m going to have the Revoltech one, I was thinking of doing some painting experiments with the old kit, and maybe make it a metallic medium/dark blue instead of the regular blue. It would also allow me to relearn about the assembling and painting tricks, which is something I need to do before I start assembling my more recent Eva 01 model kit (don’t want to screw it up ).
I’ll be going to visit my grandparents in Porto for a few days in August, when my other half is off to Croatia. That way, not only do I get to see my grandmother, and revisit Porto, but I’m not simply bored at home alone. That way, since I don’t have internet access there, I’d spend most of the time when I’m not out, reading. And considering the enormous amount of unread novels, comics and manga I have waiting at home, it would be very nice. It’s stupid really that I can’t seem to just read at home, even when I’m not chatting away happily on the web or browsing. I don’t know why I’ve been in this inertial status, but it’s annoying the hell out of me.
Oh yeah, a couple of weekends ago, when I was off somewhere on a birthday celebration with some close friends, I watched the first three episodes of Gundam Seed. Unfortunately, it didn’t impress me. For now I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt, since a friend told me it’s a ‘slow start’ series which gets better later on, but I don’t really feel motivated to watch more right now after my disappointment. For some reason, I usually don’t like most mecha-centered anime series I see. I loved Evangelion and liked Escaflowne, but those were pretty much it.
On a completely different subject, I’ve been realizing more and more lately that in general, I’m pretty happy with my life. One year ago I was suffering from a major depression and felt like crap pretty much every day, and I took steps to getting away from those feelings, and they worked. My self esteem is way up. Go me!
As promised yesterday I uploaded photos of some of my Evangelion stuff.
The one up there is a photo of my Eva Unit 01 gashapon taken with only a dark light lamp I have at home on.
