SHERLOCK
jennapeekaboo
 So I need to rant about my love of Sherlock for a minute, so I can actually go to sleep XD

I first heard about Sherlock from two friends of mine, one that I met at Otakon and one that I met at Katsucon. Both of them had raved about Sherlock, which is a modern day re imagining of the original Sherlock Holmes stories.

So after listening to them rant about it for a month or two, and my newfound love of the BBC's long-running series Doctor Who, I decided to give Sherlock a chance.

I can't even begin to describe my love of this show now. Benedict Cumberbatch does an absolutely fantastic job as Sherlock, and Martin Freeman is also fantastic as John Watson. I can't even begin to describe how amazing this show is, you just have to watch it for yourself...
 
But yes, I just finished the season, and I'm kind of pissed that it doesn't start back up until August (I think). Damn you Steven Moffat and your cliffhangers...

Spring Break
jennapeekaboo
 In which instead of going somewhere really warm and sunny, Jenna decides to go to Pennsylvania XD

Yep, leaving tomorrow to stay with a friend at her school in western PA for the week, with an trip to Ohio next weekend to hang with awesome people, some of which I know from Katsucon.

So it should be fun. We're going shopping for cosplay stuff, so there's a ton of stuff I'm hoping to get for Anime Boston, including my Sherman jumpsuit and boots, fabric for my Gakuen Hetalia pants, and hopefully ordering a binder so I have that.

Oh, and my Anime Boston cosplay list is up to 7-8. I'm absolutely insane XD 
And these are GOING to get done...hopefully XD

Having one of those days
jennapeekaboo
Finally took a big step, and took my ex-bf off my facebook relationship status, even though we've been broken up since...thanksgiving?

Realized it was time when I tried to be civil and wish him a happy birthday, but he didn't even bother to fucking respond.

Know what? I don't need him...I'm moving on with my life. There are other fish in the sea...

Katsucon stuff + USUK shoot
jennapeekaboo
 So for Katsucon I'm up to 6 costumes...4 in one day. This should be veeeery interesting.

I also talked to my friend about the bus for when I go to Katsu. Apparently the buses have two floors (kind of like the Knight bus in Harry Potter), and the best spot to sleep is the very back of the top floor. So I should be able to get some sleep...hopefully...I have to have all my stuff packed the night before, and have someone drive me to the train station after classes on thursday, and take the train into Boston, then the bus to DC. SO EXCITED!

I'm also excited to start doing more photoshoots with people, to work on my own photography skills. I'm doing a USUK shoot for two of my friends on Saturday, so it should be fun!!

Uhh...other than that...got back to school last night, only to have classes cancelled for today because of the snow. A two day school week? I'm not going to complain...

(no subject)

Stole this from sppandaaa 

 You know how sometimes people on your friendslist post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

3 Random Facts about you:
1. When I'm in the car listening to my iPod or the radio, if I song I love comes on I usually start singing along to it XD
2. I have a really bad urge to travel if I'm in one place too long. I think it's just my sense of adventure trying to poke out...
3. I love photography. I started getting into it because of my travels, but it was only when I discovered cosplay photography that I decided to start getting serious and trying to improve. I probably love that more than cosplaying itself...

Story behind your username:
My dA one, PinkHairedWonder, came about when I first started cosplaying. I was going to cosplay Yachiru from Bleach, and someone, somewhere, refered to her as "The Pink Haired Wonder". I thought it sounded catchy so I used it as my dA name. Never did cosplay Yachiru anyway...

My new name (jennapeekaboo) is mainly because I wanted something shorter, and I thought it sounded kinda cute XD

Vacation
jennapeekaboo
 Vacation is going well. Mainly using it to sleep and catch up with friends.

Kinda excited to go back to school. I miss a bunch of friends that I made last semester, that live far away. T.T

Meanwhile, I have to buy my bus tickets to go to NJ later this month. Flipping train at 4:45 am from my school to Boston, then a 7:75 am train to Philly, then I have to catch the Septa (or whatever it is called) to my friend in NJ. Going to see American Idiot on Broadway! Can't wait!

Other than that, I've been slacking on cosplay plans, and trying to find a job...
