A little update on basically what the heck is going on in my life. Just so you know, I am working on a rather difficult fan art project which I shall present within a couple days. My toughest one yet!
It doesn't matter how much I may want to, but there is no possible way I can attend Celebration VI this year. How come? Well, first I don't come from an, ah, "affluent" family (because my dad never lets me use the word "poor") and transportation costs alone are more insane than Norman Bates. Heh, our idea of a vacation is either spending a few days in Mayo Clinic for my handicapped sister, or visiting relatives because of a death in the family. Speaking of my handicapped sister, that's another issue. Either we'd take her with - and she is not a good traveler - or we'd have to leave her behind with one or two family members, which kills me every time I have to do that. I do plan on going someday though, hopefully with my dad who is also a Star Wars fan. We can scrounge up enough cash to buy our own costumes and everything. The point is, I hope we can see each other there one of these days. I'll be there in spirit!
On the brighter side, a small group I'm involved in has finally arranged for us to go on a mission trip to Thailand! Now we just have to start fundraisers, support loops, garage sales, bake sales, anything we can scrape together. I've never been on a mission trip before (for said reasons in my complaint sector) and I have a big heart for ministry. This could be it! And even if I don't come home with a determination to return to Thailand, it will be an awesome self-sacrificing experience. The best part is I get to go with my dad, who is organizing the whole trip.
On a bit of a smaller note, I finally got my own custom-made Cad Bane theme for my laptop. Which is just epic!
