Toronto FanExpo 2014

FanExpo is a place where you can let your inner geek out. It’s not all “nerdy” stuff, you can meet the normal actors that all the ladies think is good looking. It’s just a great big room of fun and awesome things.

My sister, boyfriend and I went to FanExpo yesterday. You can get a weekend pass or day passes (Thurs-Sun) in case you only wanted to go to one day, which is what we did.

We woke up nice a early and made our way there. The best part is we missed the first bus to get to Toronto, I live 30 mins away so it’s not that big of a deal so we just waited for the next one. When we got there it was crazy, the location was the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, which is located right beside the Sky Dome, the CN Tower and the Air Canada Centre! There was a million things going on at once but it made it fun.

We found where you go in if you bought tickets online and went on with our day. We got our green wrist bands for Saturday and waited in line for them to open the doors. When you walk in you are overwhelmed with everything, every where you look there is something to buy, do or see. My boyfriend’s A.D.D was for sure going off like crazy. We started by walking around and just seeing everything, we looked to see where the photos were being taken just so we knew where we were going, then went to go adventure.

There was two buildings out of this place that took us all up, the first building was called the North Building which had all the places where you meet everyone. We went over to the South Building which has all the free stuff and most of the things you would want to buy. At this point my sister and I split up because she needed to leave in order to go get her picture done with the guy who plays in Arrow, Stephen Amell. My boyfriend and I had lots of time before we met the person who picked which I will tell you later.

When we were walking around we found the Doctor Who society which is what my boyfriend and I love (hint, hint). We found the Daleks, the guy who does their voices and the Tardis!

I didn’t take very many pictures but it was mostly Doctor Who stuff I took. But lets get to the most exciting part of FanExpo, you can meet anyone who comes to this expo, you can look online before hand to see who’s going and get tickets to meet them, get autographs, and take a picture with them of course. As I said before my boyfriend and I love Doctor Who, best show going on. Matt Smith, the 11th doctor, was there and we got tickets to get a picture with him.

You only get about 7 seconds with him because the line was massive to take the picture but it’s worth it. My boyfriend and I were so happy to meet him, he is such an awesome guy. Next year or even look in your city to see if they’re coming to you. It’s a little bit on the expensive side but once again, worth it.

We each got our own little gifts for ourselves and other people but I’m not going to post that. Check it out!

Once again thank you for reading and don’t forget to follow!

Doctor Who

doctor-who-all-doctors

 

That’s right! If you are a Doctor Who fan then you were happy that season 8 has finally started last night August 23rd, 2014. 

Sadly this is the season that we have to say goodnight raggedy man to Matt Smith, personally my favourite doctor. This is also the season that we get to say hello to a new doctor and that doctor is Peter Capaldi! 

capaldi

I watched the show with excitement but I’m not sure if I like the new doctor. I think because it was him regenerating that he was strange but even then all of the doctor’s are strange. Slowly as the show went on I started to like him. I’ve waiting for a very long time for Doctor Who to come back and I’m extremely excited. 

If you’re new to Doctor Who I’m not even going to try to explain it to you because if I do you won’t even bother to watch the show. Instead I’m going to tell you that this show has been going on strong for 50+ years now and it just keeps getting better and better. 

The first episode of season 8 that aired is called Deep Breath. I’m sure it will replay on BBC One, you can find it on YouTube but even better on their website!

Happy Belated Birthday to Me!

That’s right! My birthday was last Friday! I am officially 23..

Because I totally do this all the time I’m going to do it with my birthday, I’m going to show you what I got! I was definitely spoiled this year but I am so thankful for all the gifts, birthday wishes and the time I got to spend with people. 

Some of the gifts I won’t have up close pictures for because I’m just getting pictures off the internet but I do have one picture from Instagram with all the gifts I got so you can see them there. 

Alright so my day started off at night actually, I just worked open to close at work, was dead tired and everyone else was tired too. Everyone was sending me birthday messages the night before since we all had to work early in the morning. The day of I got up and went to work where everyone said happy birthday again, I had to work the aquafit guarding slot, it was a one guard swim but we rotate every 15 mins so we don’t get bored. I left the pool to go get the lap top for one of my instructors, while I did that my other guard told all the old ladies that it was my birthday so when I rotated back on to guard they all ended up singing happy birthday. It was pretty cool and nice thing for my guard to do for me. After when everyone else came I got birthday cupcakes, cookies and a cover for my shift! I went home to my mum and sister where I got my birthday card from my cat! My sister and mum did it, it was pretty cute and totally my cat. Slowly my family came home then we waited on my boyfriend – always a slow poke! When he finally got to my house he took my mum and I to the mall because of the gift he got me!

The red Nexus 5 cell phone! My boyfriend is the best. He got it for me because my other phone that I had was a shit box and I kept complaining about it. I helped paid for it a bit because I felt bad but he still put a lot of money into it. I’ve been taking care of my baby from now on. My bestfriend got me a case but we are still waiting for that to get here. 

After we got the phone all set up and ready to go we went to dinner at the Mandarin. My sister and step dad met us there but they took so long because my step dad got pulled over! Was pretty funny but because he was on the way to my dinner they let him go. We ate like crazy then came home to open gifts! Here come the pictures!

Christmas Day

I didn’t write about Christmas day the other day so I am now. 

I couldn’t sleep that night for some reason so I woke up early with my sister, when I came down they were still making breakfast and my step dad was still getting up. I was just sitting there waiting for everyone and waiting to give my boyfriend’s gift to my parents. When I did give them the gift they thought he was crazy and said he didn’t need to do that. It was a gift card to Swiss Chalet for $50.00. 

We always start with our stockings because that’s what the whole world does I believe. My mum makes some pretty cool stockings or they seem cool to me for some reason. In my stocking I got face cream, face wash, scratch cards, Doctor Who mini figure, nail polish remover wipes, chocolate, Doctor Who book, itunes card, perfume, and more but I can’t think of it at the moment. 

Next we go onto the gifts, my mum let me open up this huge one, it was a dresser that I’ve been asking forever because I have the smallest room and the smallest closet and no room for any of my clothes. We kept opening gifts and things just got better and better. Some things my mum makes my sister and I open at the same time because it’s from the same store or something like each others, so this time we opened something from coach. I got the purse that I wanted and my sister got the watch that she wanted. The gifts I got from my mum if I can remember them all are the purse, dresser, football for dummies book, Doctor Who book (second one), case for my tablet, Doctor Who cookie jar, Doctor Who mug, Doctor Who glasses that changed colour when they is a cold drink in it, a roots sweater, many DVDs, lulu yoga shorts and top, yoga cats calendar, can’t cook cookbook, laundry basket, throw blanket, socks, and duck soap on a rope. 

After putting my dresser in my room my boyfriend calls me telling me that he had to be home for dinner at four. I was upset because he said he was going to be at my house for dinner. He told me to relax and that he was going to be there, then all of the sudden he asked if I could be at his house for dessert, I told him to just stay there because I had family coming over too. He then said that he wanted me to meet his nona and that we would go to his house then go back to my house for dinner. When I got there everyone was asleep because they were so tired, I opened my gifts and my boyfriend went up to nap as well. He woke up to hearing people in his house so we got up and went down stairs. I was in the kitchen leaning on the wall not paying attention to anything behind me when I heard someone say excuse me. I turned around to find an old lady with my boyfriend standing behind her, she asked me if I was his girlfriend which I said yes to. She shook my hand then kissed both my cheeks, she didn’t say much but she seemed nice and my boyfriend said that she liked me. I ended up sitting beside my boyfriend’s mum and my boyfriend at dinner. His mum is really nice to me and I like her so I will help her out if she asks me. Anyways, dinner went fine I barely ate because I knew I had to eat again, we said goodbye to people and left for my house. My boyfriend finds meeting new people so easy so I wasn’t worried about him at all, he had a lot of gifts to open which he loved from both me and my family. 

Some of my family that I actually like was at my house for dinner, we had a good time drinking then we watched the new Doctor Who episode. I’m so sad the Matt Smith is no longer the doctor! My boyfriend was so sweet to my switch was fun and stayed over for awhile then had to go home because he worked.

The night was pretty much over at this point and everyone went to bed. Christmas was fun and stressful but when isn’t it right? I hope all of you had a great Christmas!

I’m a bad gift giver.

BORING LIFE!

Yup, nothing new in my life is happening therefore making it really boring and having nothing to write about. 
Today I did however had a productive day. Last night I told myself that tomorrow I’m going to go shopping for more Christmas gifts, work, then come home to wrap all the gifts I’ve gotten so far. That’s for sure what I did! I really hate shopping alone, I feel like it’s sad, lonely and harder. When you shop you need someones opinion of whatever it is you are going to buy. For example I was Christmas shopping for my boyfriend, I wanted to get him a sweater but I have NO idea which one or what size because I forgot to ask him. I honestly left the store, walked to my sisters store, tried to find her since it’s a big store, then when I finally found her I asked her what to do. She told me that when she shops for her boyfriend she puts it on to see how big it is on her because guys always get girls to wear their clothes or girls just steal it. I thought that was the best idea ever and very smart, so that’s what I did. He finally messaged me when I was at work what his size was and I think I got the right one. I guess we will wait and see. 

“I’m a bad gift giver.”

This is like a famous line I say when I have to buy anyone a gift. This is what happens; I always brain storm of ideas then I go get the best ones. When I think about what I got them it all seems really lame to me so I get more but, when I go to wrap all the gifts I end up having so much for each person. I just always feel like I give bad gifts. Last year my ex was so picky when it came to things so all his gifts had to be like perfect and I had to listen to what he said throughout the year just to figure out Christmas gifts. My boyfriend this year is the best and loves everything I get him. We love Doctor Who and I randomly decided that I was going to get him something just for the hell of it. I saw online a TARDIS robe and I knew he would love it –  or at least I thought I did when I first saw it. So I order it, it comes and I pick it up but as soon as I go to give it to the person I’m like, “SHIT what if he doesn’t like it or he thinks it’s so lame.” Honestly, that’s what happens in my head. Anyways, he picked me up just to go over to his house and that’s when I gave it to him. I folded it so he wouldn’t know what it was right away but when he opened it he was like. “Is this a TARDIS robe?!” I obviously told him yes and he started freaking out saying it was awesome and so cool. I was SO happy it loved it and now he wears it all the time. The next morning he went to go so his mum and even he’s mum said it was really nice of me to randomly get that for him. 

I guess I will have to let you know if everyone loves their millions of gifts. 

Christmas shopping sucks. 

I honestly sucks so much because of how much time and effort it takes to get it done. I started November 1st and I’m still not done to this day. There is 21 days until Christmas and I’m still not friggen done. I have no idea how parents get there kids and families a million this each year. I swear the world works just for Christmas!
