Here is my little report of Steam Con. I figured that it would be best to make a journal about the convention, it's a busy couple of days. As my birthday was the right before Steam Con, I decided to use the Con as a way to have fun for my birthday. I would say that plan definitely worked. I carpooled with Brian, Cheri, Kat, and Maimai up to Seattle. It was exciting as I hadn't been on a roadtrip with Kat, Cheri, or Brian in a long time. Maimai, I'm still getting to know. We drove up in his new car, a good way to break it in, on the way up. Kat, Brian, and I were pretty squished in the back, but that didn't bother me. Also it was very cold out, we had quite the cold snap around Steam Con, so the body heat was nice.

I was really happy to see Tyson when we arrived, and ran off with him to see the panel about "The world's Oldest Profession". It was a great panel the ladies hosting it had really done their research. I didn't know about certain details, like there being over a hundred "steamstresses in Seatle, but only on sewing machine." *Lol*  One lady even had an artifact brothel token and key, the token said it was, good for one quality lay :D!

I'll continue on with my report later, but I have to get to class at the moment. More to come...

Well here I am for Spring term at PCC. At the moment I'm not sure what to do with myself. I came in for math lecture today at 10:00 and now I have a gap until Geology at 3:00. I know later on this term I'll have homework to do during this time, but right now I don't have home work. It feels odd to be at school and not have homework to do 0_o.

I had a nice Spring Break, it was pretty quite, but that can be nice. Stern came down from Olympia and Molly, Tyson, Katrina, and I all hung out together and showed Stern around. We went to the local Mineral Museum in Hillsboro, which was lots of fun! I'd never been their before. They variety and amount of their collect was really impressive and cool. Opal is so pretty, Katrina and I did lots of oggling of the opal in the collection especially! We also went to military surpluses in Aloha and Portland, and one neat place Hippo Hardware in Portland. We were on the search for steampunk accessories and bits to steampunk outfits. I also thought of a original character linked to the Girl Genius fandom, so I can play alone with all my buddies who have their favorite Girl Genius characters and original characters. I'm excited about that, I see a way to get involved in the steampunk fun up until this point I've wanted to, but have had no idea how. I'm hoping to make a sperate post about the possibilties of the character and maybe a tid-bit of writing.

Sadly I didn't make an of my writing goals this Spring Break. I think my brain was tired. I did some research for NAL, but I just couldn't get going. I've made a promise to myself  that I will at the very least touch NAL every weekend. I've got to get braver! I'm hoping to post an excerpt to Live Journal here and DA, as soon as I can.

Well I've still got some time left here until class, it's currently 11:40. I think I'll run off  and get a bit to eat. Maybe some nice green veggies in a salad and a cup of tea? I had a big coffee this morning, but not food yet, so I 've got to take care of that. It's nice when the coffee both near the bus stop has one dollar 16 oz coffees. I usually don't drink that much coffee, but it's such a good I can't pass it up! I find my self becoming more like my Father as I get older. That's fine by me though, I love my Dad. Since we rode the bus to Scappose this morning we chatted all the way there, mainly abotu school stuff and buying books, he's my buddy. Also mum and Georgie are coming back from England on Thursday night so I'll see them Friday. It's so nice Mum has the weekend off, I've missed her. I told Dad to let me know when he'd like to take mum out for an evening they very rarely spend this much time apart.

Take care everyone Hayley X

PS: I'm also going to add tags to my entries from now on. I'm not sure what that will do, but it feels more organized ^_^.
