It's been a long time, amirite?
I've been on holiday too much.
I missed two weeks of blogging because I was in California, so I'm not really
complaining, but it is nice to be back.
Skiing was fun; the usual escapades and what not.
I did practice my backwards skiing though, down a couple blue runs.
I found this nice long run, about 2.5miles long, and I skied it all backwards.
What a nut am I.
Of course, I also worked on my forwards skiing, but there isn't much left to work
My dad was talking to me about signing up for racing, but I can't honestly be
bothered right now. My life is chaotic.
Naturally, we had a skiing wipe-outs contest, and, as usual, I lost.
During my nine days of skiing, I wiped out once, and my dad, who's qualified as a ski
instuctor, wiped out twice!
My dad's girlfriend, Rachel, wiped out about 15 times, but it was her first ever time
skiing, so that's really good.
My sister, however, who is a perfectly capable skier, wiped out 20 times.
The majority of which whilst standing still. o_e
Moving on, the convention is soon. o_e
By soon, I mean about 40 days.
Though we're on track, I'm getting stressed, seeing as there's still two of the
bigger pieces left to make; the jacket and the dress. The jacket is under way, but I
haven't even got the pattern for the dress. On top of that, there's some ridiculously
hard skate covers to make for one of the cosplays.
However, Rachel is good at sewing, so if things start becoming too hectic, she'll be
able to whip up most things within two days.
The good news is that I ordered the wigs yesterday, which took a huge burden
off of my shoulders.
They should be with me within 20 days, hopefully.
