I've been putting off writing this entry. There's just so much to say with regards the Summer of Sonic con, and I'm not quite sure how to put it. Guess I'll start by summing it up ;
it was incredible!
Me and Papiyon met so many wicked people, all of whom I'd love to chat to more and see again. These included, but were by no means limited to :
(if you met us at the con and wish to be included to this journal entry simply note me and I'll add you ASAP <3)
A demo of Sonic Chronicles was available for play, as well as a Wii display with Sonic : Secret Rings, and a Guiness Book of Game Records tourney to discover who could get the fastest time in Emerald Hill Zone Act 1. Ooooh, and all members (bear in mind this was a FREE event) were entitled to take a copy of the Guiness Book of Game Records 2008!!!! A great book it is, too, I would recommend it <3. Contains much rare trivia. For instance, I discovered, through reading it, that one of Sonic's original names was Mr. Needlemouse O_O.
I was invited on stage by the awesome T-bird. Once four others were summoned he announced why we were there ; for the Sonic T-time quiz!
Anyone who's interested in seeing how the quiz went is more than welcome to check it out here :

(Oooh that reminds me, I also featured in another recent YouTube video : www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2wHQM… )
The highlight of the day for me (and there were many! Obviously including the quiz) must have been when I was announced as the winner of the raffle's STAR PRIZE. The star prize happened to be a Sega goodie bag (like all the other awesome raffle prizes), the only difference being this one contained the very best stuff! Among other things, inside was a BLACK NDS-LITE and a SEGA LAPTOP BAG, apparently only given to Sega employees! Here's a full list of my prizes : www.freewebs.com/100furs/prize…
Everyone said it was luck. I beg to differ ; I'd say it was more to do with the shitload of raffle tickets I bought
Here are my photos! ; s202.photobucket.com/albums/aa…
The next day me and Han went to see Wall-E. The best Disney Pixar film I've seen, I must admit. I will concede that I didn't feel any connection with the protagonist, though, and am not convinced Eva would have fallen for him in reality if they were human. I couldn't see his redeeming qualities.
After that we went to Games Workstation, where I played Warhammer for the first time! Hannah was my opponent. She's wicked at it, but somehow that worked to my advantage as the staff were helping me out xD. I must admit its a lot funner than I thought, and I'm certainly seriously considering purchasing a lil army all of my own ^^
When my colleagues at work asked me how I spent the weekend I replied 'just chillin', hehe'. Its not like they'd have believed me if I'd told them

Devious Journal Entry
I can’t believe it’s been 3 months since my last journal. That’s just not like me, haha! So what’s been going on in my life? Well I’m still unemployed, tsk. I did see a Careers Adviser the other week who gave me some really good advice with regards getting a job which I think will work for me. Just gotta keep at it I guess! I’ll be seeing him again tomorrow. Aside from that I’m still doing my SonicLondon thang and my 3DSBlessed thang. In addition I’ve set up a new group with some friends called StreetPass London, which will serve as a place for 3DS fans in the capital to gather. You can find o
With 2013 now coming to a steep close I thought I'd take the time to sit back, reflect, and partake in my yearly tradition of writing some words. Ah 2013. Not a great year for me. But, as I've come to realise in hindsight, it has certainly not been an awful year either. The biggest downside was the 9 months of unemployment, which began in March when my contract at my previous job came to an end. As I've written so many times, this coincided with my landlord announcing he was going to sell the home my parents were renting, and they subsequently went to live in Ireland. Now, I'd lived alone before, but my Mum had never been more than a tube's

Hey guys, me again. And what's this? Yet another moaney message. Actually I've started a Counselling class and figured out why I find making posts like this useful ; its just like being counselled! I know there are people that still read these things (and maybe some people who even visit my page and root through old journals. We've all done it ;) ) so who needs to spend £££/hour on a counsellor when I already have an audience? Ok so I'm still feeling bummed about employmentness. I suppose things have been looking up slightly recently in the sense that I've actually been invited to a fair few interviews. Had one today actually, with a local
