Today I got a ride from James to go to Mini Iwai. I went to some of the panels once we got there including a film making panel and a few others. I took alot of photos of costumes and met up with Chantel once she arrived and we all went to Wendys for a second time to get food. Some of the group members had to leave early but we still all got to have alot of fun. matt was in costume which was cool. I was able to log into the wifi at the hotel we were at by asking one of the bartenders for the password. I got some contact info for the two female film makers and I also went to a largest pop group performance. Basically it was a fun day.
So today we took Kuma to get dewormed then after that we went home I picked up my package from the mail woman and then Matt came to pick me up and we were off to Sunrise Florida for a small fun thingie lol. On the way there we stopped at McDnalds and I used my coupon to get a signature burger. I got a burger with pico de gallo and guacamole. The burger was really good. Then we got to the event and we explored the anime art exhibit which had really awesome art work. After that we checked out the martial arts exhibition. It was mostly young people in their early teens and they did a really good job using different types of weapons and each having a segment where they did their own routine to really upbeat dance music. Then we checked out the vendors met up with some more people and checked out origami making classes and then the costume contest. I made sure to get alot of pictures of the costumes and other cool things including the artwork and food trucks. Also Crystal and Eric were there too. yay. All in all it was a fun day.
Today I went to a crafts meetup at Panera Bread. I got there first I believe and saw a woman working on beading a picture using a bunch of strings on a large loom type thing. She wasnt a part of the meetup but she used to go to other meetups in New York. Anyways Jess finally showed up and we all got food, I got my free birthday pastry, and then we all sat and ate and chatted. Sadly I was in a rush and also doing a survey. I had to leave early because I had a 2 hour survey session to do and so I left at like 6:30pm to catch the bus. I ended up leaving later than 6:30 cuz I was still talking to the members of the group and sadly when I got outside the bus was already driving away. I tried to catch up hoping it would have someone to pick up and or let off at the next stop but sadly it just kept going. The good thing is that the woman who was doing the pretty beading came outside as I was standing there trying to finish my survey and she aksed me if I gave up on the group already and I said no that I had to leave early and had missed my bus and she offered me a ride. She is Jewish and her name is Robin. She was talking about her doctor who didn’t want to write her a script to get an xray and that she had had surgery on her hip or something like. She also didnt have any kids but she liked kids. Anyways I was really happy that she gave me a ride. She was pretty nice to me and I was able to get home in time to start my session. The session didnt start until like 30 minutes later but I was happy that I didnt have to walk home so it was happy to get home early without having to walk to get there. Sadly the meetups are only once a month but I did have a good time and I loved the almond drop raspberry cookie and I was able to do my session afterwrads and submit it.
Today James and I went to see Wonder Woman he had a flu so Im really hoping I dont get it. I’ve been taking vitamin c since then. Anyways it rained the whole day so it was a good thing that James brought a large umbrella. Anyways we missed the beginning of the movie but what I did see was really good. Awesome day despite the incessant rain.
Today I went to the second sketch meetup at at cafe in delray. I continued working on my drawing from the plein air meetup. the meetup runner bought me a coffe and we all talked with the other woman that showed up then we went for a walk around downtown. Then afterwards Kat gave me a ride home and took my number so we could stay in touch. I was really happy to get a ride home becuse I wasnt sure the bus would be running on schedule because earlier at the tri rail station the bus left 9 minutes early even though its a marked stop in the schedule booklet. anyways I was able to hang out for a longer time because I got a ride home so I was pretty happy about that. I had known I didnt have any money with me so I made sure to bring a few snacks with including two pieces of guava cake and a banana. Yup I was prepared but sadly not prepared enough as after a few hours of drawing I was starving. But it was fine I got home and went to get a pizza and used a mcdonalds coupon to get some sandwiches. All in all it was a pretty awesome meetup.
Today we deided to watch Baywatch. I really didnt care to watch it but the group was going so I decided to go too. C%^&*’s friend from New York was there and they decided to get food and then when James showed up he ordred food too. It took forever to get our food so by the time we got it the movie had been playing for a few minutes already. It was a funny movie but had some gross parts as many “comedies” do these days. But anyways I had fun.
So today I decided to go pick up my free gift from Sephora at the Boynton Beach Mall. I got my gift and then got on the bus to go back home but it was raining really heavily so I decided to stay on the bus thinking I was on the way to Red Robin. Turns out I was on the wrong bus so I got off at the Boca Tri rail and got on the bus going back the other way which came within a few minutes and I finally got to the Palm Beach Outlets. I realized they had a Tj Maxx and a Whole Foods so I did some exploring first before going to get my burger. I officially really like this Whole Foods they have a large selection of cooked foods and omg I’ve never seen so many organic body care products in one place. The Tj Maxx didn’t have any Nubian Heritage products but ne of their employees said that sometimes they do have some of their products. They also had a Vitamin Shoppe and I was able to find a whole lot of Nubian Heritage products there but not the hair masque. But I think that I can order the hair masque at the store when I’m ready to buy another one. Anyways I finally went to get my burger, I sat at the bar and a friendly slightly chubby blonde bar tender took my order and served other people including making another man at the bar a smoothie. I say and played with the tablet they had because mines was dieing and the bartender said she couldnt charge it for me. Sadly I couldnt play the games unless I ordered a drink and I didnt have money to spare so I just read articles instead. Anyways finally my burger came so I got it tipped the bar tender and went to the palm beach outlets food court to eat and charge my device. THE BURGER AND THE FRIES WERE AMAZING OH MY GOSH NO WONDER THEIR FOOD IS SO EXPENSIVE ITS WORTH EVERY PENNY. LOL anyways after eating I used the restroom and left to catch the bus home. It was a good day except for Bjs brewhouse telling me that to get my FREE gift I had to make a purchase. Kinda defeats the purpose of free right. Anyways good day besides that and the rain lol.
