Changes

Hey guys. A few months have passed without me doing anything on here, but I've just been really busy with a lot of junk. School, life, and a lot of thinking are the main things. I've always been really comfortable with sharing things on here, so if you guys don't mind I am going to post something else to flood your dash this evening.

Attention Residents of CA and NJ

Hello! Jeez, it's been a long time since I've been on here. How is everyone?

Now that I'm back, I have to ask y'all a favor. As you know, I am currently working on a three-part fanfiction series. The first one is set in New Jersey (1994/1995 with the possibility of flashbacks), the second in both California and New Jersey (2005-2007), and the third mainly in California (don't worry too much about the year; it hasn't happened yet). I have never been to either of these states, so I just need some help with the setting. Mainly, the weather.

What is the weather like in New Jersey during winter, spring, summer, and autumn? How would you describe the aesthetic during these seasons?

What is the weather like in California during winter, spring, summer, and autumn? How would you describe the aesthetic during these seasons?

Fanfiction 911

WARNING: IF YOU KNOW ABOUT MY IN-PROGRESS FANFICTION AND PLAN ON READING IT, THERE ARE MINOR SPOILERS UP AHEAD. THE SPOILERS REGARD SET UP MORE THAN PLOT, BUT SOME PLOT MIGHT BE REVEALED. READ ON IF THIS INFORMATION IS IRRELEVANT...ESPECIALLY BECAUSE I DO NEED SOME HELP.

Okay, so the fanfiction is going to be set up in three parts. The third part is what I need help with.

This is the plan:

For the first two parts, I am going for complete realism. The first set in 1994 to 1995, the approximate year that Gerard Way graduated high school. The second is set in late 2005/2006, 10 years later. The third will take place in 2021/2022, 16 years later.

About a Boy

As I said in my last post, my niece graduated from high school the other day. Her mother, and my sister, threw a nice party for her in the backyard of their house. It was lovely; a good amount of friends and family came, and we played over-sized Jenga. Anyways, I go to the food table and watch the little kids play for a bit. Someone beside me makes a comment (I can't remember what it was right now) and I turn to see a boy beside me. He has red hair and a goofy face. It is the good kind of goofy, where it is really cute. We introduce ourselves and go sit down.

Before I go any further, let me stress where I am at this time. This is Savannah, Georgia. People here are VERY serious about religion, politics, etc. So how am I to know how some people react to the things I say? Sometimes I feel I am walking on eggshells talking about some things.

Hello, Georgia!

I have been in Georgia with Family for just under a week now, and I am pretty damn happy! There is less drama, more activities, and I'm off work for two months!

*insert happy dance here*

I just wanted to update everyone on that. I will try to work on my fic some more and have it up by July/August. I keep pushing it up because I keep forgetting to work on it. It will get done, I'm just trying to think of what I want to do with it.

I slept in way too late today, but I feel like it's what I needed. From now on, I will not. It just wastes the day and I have too much stuff I want to do.

I will try to update everyone on a more regular basis now that I have consistent Wi-Fi!!!! HOORAY!!!

So far...

1. Improv Shows ROCK
2. My niece graduated high school, and is engaged! I am so proud of her. :)
3. Soul Caliber 4 is AWESOME!! When my 12 year old niece is playing as Yoda, though, beware...

Have a lovely summer, I'll talk to you soon.

ALWAYS with love,

Show Stopper

Instrument Acquired!

On May 13th, 2014 at approximately 4:30 PM, Show Stopper the Fabulous Killjoy became the proud owner of a Fender Squire guitar from her good friend from school!

Best part, other than owning the damn thing? It only cost $60 plus patching up 3 pairs of the previous owner's jeans!

She is purple and her name is Baby. Needless to say, I am very excited to be learning how to play her. I have a book, internet, YouTube, and no prior experience. Any tips for a beginner?

Let's see how this goes!

Always with love,

Show Stopper

Tech Question?

I was trying to get on twitter this morning, but I was redirected to a page that told me I couldn't access it because it was "categorized as adult".

....

What the fuck? I could access it just fine yesterday, but now it won't let me. I also can't get on YouTube or My Chemical Romance Fanfiction. I got on all of those just fine yesterday.

So, my question is, "How do I fix this?" I fear I may not be able to, since it might be with the WiFi at my school. That is the only source of WiFi I have constant access to, so that is what I use.

I guess a better question is, "Can I fix this?"

Part One of...?

It sure has been a while, Killjoys, but I'm back and (maybe) better than ever!

My sister and I went to see MSI at the end of March, and it was amazing! Even though the only other show I'd been to was Pentimento/Dads/Reggie and the Full Effect, I must say MSI was the best show I've attended. The Bunny The Bear opened the show, and people were a lot less enthusiastic for them. I, however, tried (and succeeded!) in getting into it. They are a good band, but I was more enthusiastic for MSI.

By the way, does anyone know the name of the blonde guitarist for The Bunny The Bear? I met him after the show (pictured here) but I didn't get his name. I just think he's amazing because:

1. He can sing.
2. He plays guitar.
3. He screams.
4. He's really cute.

Can Anyone Do Me a Favor?

Okay, some of you know that I have a Deviant Art Account, and those who do also know that I am not very active on it. Still, I want to start posting some more of my work on there and get some coverage other than from my mom and sister. I have a few drawings done, and I posted one of them on there a few weeks ago. Could someone look at it and see what you think? The link is below.

It is Killjoy related... *hint hint*

There will be more of them posted soon, whether you like it or not. I mean that in the nicest of ways, of course.

Stay shiny,

Show Stopper
