Short Vacation

August 13, 2013

Lies!! I’m a freaking liar!! *sigh* Sorry about that, I was on a role with the blog writing and visiting and then stuff happened… Well, nothing bad – at least – but it just kept me busy or too tired to sit at the computer and blog.

I got to experience my first time of being on call. Of course it was the day they updated a major program for the hospital and so many thing went wrong with it. I got a phone call twice every hour on that day. Thankfully I was just on call for one day – which was Sunday. The rest of the week was crazy though. We were flooded with phone calls on issues we couldn’t really fix. Plus one person was out on vacation so it made for an very interesting week – to put it mildly. lol

Thankfully, I was going to be off for 5 days the next week. I just took three days off the work week so I could save up some of my vacation time for later.

I kept really busy on the first few days off. I decorated my room and probably spent too much money doing it. I can now share pictures though! I will also share pictures of my sister’s room soon. Both of our rooms are pretty much done. I just have to finish putting butterflies up on this one blank spot on my walls. I had them up but the sticky stuff that came with it sucked so they fell off and a few broke so I need to buy some more and use my own stuff to hang it up. My sister’s room is pretty much done except we are still trying to come up with what will go good on those empty shelves.


Here is one of the pictures of my room. I adore that Sakura tree that lights up. β™₯

Then the next day I did another Misato photo shoot with just certain locations. Got a few more pictures I’m happier with than the first try – especially because we fixed the wig some more.

After the short shoot I went out shopping with my mother. We were going to pick out fabric for a pattern I wanted to sew but in the long run we never got anything. I hated all the fabric so I decided I would try to really think hard on something I want to sew that isn’t too hard and then go shopping. I really need to do more planning. The pattern I wanted to sew will wait until later when I have more monies to be able to order nice fabric. For now I just need to think of something that I really want to do so I don’t lose interest. I mean, that is how I got into web design, writing and cosplay. XD

The next day we were going to FINALLY do the Euphemia photo shoot – from Code Geass – but we got sick! All of us got stomach aches from food we had eaten for dinner the previous day. It was a let down because after that we didn’t do much more than watch movies and veg. LOL So much for being productive. At least I finally got my room decorated.

I really do hope to do the Euphemia photo shoot though. We at least fixed the button that was falling apart in the front after wearing it to San Japan.

Continue to see more pictures of the room. XD


See! I found away to display all my plushies. Yay!


That blank area on the left is where I was going to have butterflies.


I missed having my jewelry tree. I hardly wear it anymore but at least I can display it.

So there you have it! I finally got around to having my purple room! That blanket probably won’t be my comforter for long, it is just too hot to have a real comforter on my bed right now. It works well with my room though, my step mother and father did a good job at finding it. I always love getting blankets. I will be by to make blog visits soon!

    cute room! Where’s the desk? Or do you have a office in another room?

    I’m like that too with blogging, too :/ But I try my best and that’s all it counts, right? I don’t think I can be on an on-call schedule, so I find it amazing that people can do it. Remember to enjoy some rest, too πŸ™‚

      Thanks, yeah all computers and stuff are in our hobby room. XD

      Yeah it has too, lol. I really dislike it so I’m glad two guys at my job like to take them most of the time so they take my weeks a lot. I will πŸ™‚

    Beautiful room! Wow, that must of been some experience being on call for the first time. I can’t even imagine it.

      Thanks, yeah it was crazy and if it was for more than one day I would have gone crazy.

    I’m glad you got a little break after being on call! That sounds stressful to be called so many times in a day.

    Your room looks great! I love the color of your walls and how you decorated them too. The sakura tree looks really pretty πŸ™‚

    I’m currently using fabric.com for some of my fabric orders, and I’ve liked what I’ve gotten from them so far. They have a large selection! I feel like the fabric stores in my area cater to quilting, so they have a large cotton selection but not much else outside of that.

      Thanks for the website. I had no idea where I was going to start looking. β™₯ Our town is probably catered to quilters too, that and young kids clothing.

    Being on call sounds hectic. I don’t think I could work in such a high pressured environment, I doubt I’d be able to cope.

    Your room looks lovely. I love the cookie cushion! So cute!

    Good luck with the sewing! My sister makes dresses in her spare time, but I don’t have the patience. It’s too fiddly and I end up stabbing myself too many times with the needle. I wish I could sew.

      I made the cookie, btw β™₯ I wanted to make more, some smaller just for the hell of it since I have a lot of left over material. My problem is not having that spare time lol

    Wow! Your room is so purple, I just love it!! I would love to have something like that in my house. So I hope you enjoyed your little short vacation and feel a little recharged πŸ˜€

      Hehehe, I have been wanting a purple room for many years and I finally got it! It was nice but I need a longer one soon.

  • Reply Agent Q August 19, 2013 at 7:18 am

    My goodness, what a beautiful design! The time, energy, and money you spent decorating it worth every penny, so don’t feel bad about it. πŸ™‚

    Sorry you had to call offyour plans due to sickness. Were you not able to reschedule it the moment you cancelled it? Now that the button’s fixed, you’re one step closer to getting the photos taken. I’m excited to see this.

      Thank you! Yeah, though it was a lot of monies I don’t regret it hehe

      Haha, true – yeah it is hard to come up with good days when all of us are available to do a shoot sadly.

  • Reply Amy August 21, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    I LOVE IT! Purple is my favourite colour ^_______^
    I would like to have a room of my own which I could decorate like this πŸ™‚ Alas I have no money and no house, so no room πŸ™

    That’s a shame you couldn’t go ahead with your photoshoot due to food poisoning. Hopefully you guys can reschedule and do it some other time.

    Ohhh I love the purple room! Back when I lived with my parents I had a light purple room too and I loved it so much <3 I also love the sakura tree (I've seen it in the Netherlands too and I really want one :3) and I also love the jewelry tree!

    The painting with the hearts is cute too <3 I want it :3

      Nods, I always loved purple rooms. My dad and step mother use to have them and I was always wanting to copy them. The Sakura tree is so pretty but I wish it had been a dat bit cheaper lol

      The jewelry tree was such a find, my mother did great in finding that for me.

  • Reply Anne August 22, 2013 at 10:09 am

    Oh my, your room is so lovely! I’d love the idea of your jewelry tree. I’ having a hard time on how I’ll keep mine in a beautiful and organized way and you just gave me an idea how to fix mine. I soooo adore the sakura tree! Bet it would really look good with lights off (;

      Ohhh, glad to help you out with an idea. I have no idea if that tree was meant for jewelry but it works for it and I think the store had it set up the same way, which is why we thought it would be perfect.
      Yes! It has this wonderful glow, I just want to relax in my room with it.

    Your room is awesome!! I love the color of your walls – I have a purple room back home but it’s closer to a plum color. I like yours a bit better. All that hard work and money to get it looking so nice paid off! πŸ™‚

    Where did you get that Sakura tree light? It’s so beautiful! And I love your room, I love how it’s free of clutter, but the choice of decorations is so amazing! πŸ™‚
