Random Road Trip to the Cherry Blossom Festival Part Deux!!!
(In which we actually arrived during the festival instead of after)
Last time, I tried winning the cute short haired dog and ended up using all of my coins and it wouldn’t just budge.
Yesterday, it just sat there.
Staring at me.
Holding my gaze.
AND MY RAGE.
you little bitch
Totally forgot about posting this last weekend.
I went out with Jon on a last minute road trip to the Cherry Blossom Festival, which was closing by the time we got there. We were pretty late because we were picking up Arje from the Great Mall in San Jose.
In all actuality, all we did was explore Japan Town in San Francisco and that was still fun.
Yay random road trip~
Also, for the first time ever and for all of 2 minutes while we were waiting in line to get into the park:
I PLAYED IN THE SNOW !!!!11!!1!!!!11!!11
I went to Yosemite Nat’l Park over the weekend.
Rain kind of put a damper on hiking up any trails, but I still got some photos on my phone. It was my first time ever to the park and I feel dumb for not having gone sooner. It was really peaceful and amazing to just be in the presence of such beauty and life.
The rain actually made the feeling of being there better. Sort of odd/not odd if you think about it…
Just another weekend at SacAnime.
The convention moved from its prior location at the old Radisson to the Sacramento Convention Center downtown due to its growth in recent years. The bigger venue allowed for more elbow room in Dealer’s Halls, Gaming Rooms, and, well, to hang out. It’s beginning to look like a Fanime Con.
Aside from the parking costs, it was an overall fun time. I look forward to more conventions here at the Convention Center.
Enjoy a compilation of some of my good times from 2012. It’s definitely necessary now more than ever, what with all the recent tragedies, that we need to remain positive and keep the light shining even in dark times.
2012, for me (despite having survived an apocalypse), has been a very interesting year. It has been both filled with great accomplishments, uncertainty, and memories, and I will look on forward to the new people I’ll meet, places I’ll go, and stuff I’ll experience.
I am reminded everyday how great and precious life can be and, no matter how distressing things turn out, there will always be a small moment that can be extracted out of each day to find bliss and meaning.
Sorry for sounding preachy, it wasn’t my original intent to be, but it changed because of sudden cancellation of the New Years celebration in Downtown Sacramento due to a shooting that killed a couple of innocent people and injured a few more. I’m watching some news coverage of it now and its jarring at how much we take for granted and how things work out in our own lives.
I hope that you can find your own solace in life and strive for happiness in the new year.
So, as part of our Disney trip this past weekend, I took some pictures with some Disney characters. It is a time honored tradition with me and my trips to anywhere Disney that I have to get as many pictures with characters as possible.
And I was glad to not only have such a talented photographer with me on this trip, (Anji <3), but also to fit in the time in our quick day of Disneyland to take these pictures as well as experience everything else I never got to experience in prior trips.
I could spend an entire day just interacting with these characters alone. They’re so fun!
(Although, we didn’t interact much with Snow White and the Evil Queen. They had a long line and they were about to go, so they were running through as many people as possible. Apparently, ours was so quick because Snow White cheerfully said, “Well, that was quick and easy!” Which, I’m not sure if I should take that as a compliment or not…)
Oh, so please excuse my absence for the past couple of days. I was busy having a blast at Disneyland and California Adventure!
More pics coming soon~
I went on a day trip to Santa Cruz yesterday.
Natural Bridges looked empty for the couple of hours I was there. I took a couple of pictures on my 3DS because I remembered I had the capability of taking 3D pictures. There was no way to translate that to a simple jpg file, but I thought I’d share at least the 2D versions anyway.
The trip was nice. I was able to see a couple of people and I got to hang out on the beach. There were a lot of people surfing near the lighthouse beach, too. I even took a nap for like an hour in the sand. It was perfect.
Emergency! Get this guy a shirt stat!
Right, so here’s the story.
On Friday, I was hanging out with a couple of people at Costco and we decided to go back to the hotel room across the street. We could literally see the room from Costco, but the only real way to get there is to walk all the way around the fence to the lobby and then loop around the lake.
However, Jinra had the bright idea of just climbing the fence and saving the trouble of having to walk all that way when the room was just a few feet away. On the way over, the fence snagged on to the shirt I was wearing, tore through both layers, and made cuts on my arm…
Fast forward to the concert where my friend’s band, akai SKY, was selling their band T-shirts for very cheap, and so I purchased one and told them the story. They laughed, I cried a little inside, it was okay.
After I excused myself to change shirts in the bathroom, I walked back out to the stage and they saw I changed into their band shirt. Hayashi, the guitarist, was super excited like he didn’t believe I would change my shirt.
He then asked to take a picture with me.
