Hyped by Disney!




I can not believe how excited I am about our upcoming trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando. Nathan asked me some time ago if I would like to go and I didn't mind, but at that time I would not say I was excited. We already went to Disneyland in Paris after Minecon 2012 and to Universal Studios after Minecon 2013. It was great and I loved it. Universal slightly more than Disney, because it had Harry Potter! 

I started to watch YouTube videos about Disney World and realized that it is an awesome experience I never had as a child, that people of all ages go there and have amazing time, that I should do whatever I want even tho I am not a child anymore and that I should make it count by trying to have a magical experience. So all this excitement was jump stayed by YouTube! 

If you have never check WDW on YouTube you should... People make all sorts of videos from "What to take and how to pack" to vlogs, shopping hauls (which I love), tips and tricks and recommendations and reviews. Hours of footage of packing and unpacking various bags, eating food or just talking. 
I am amazed. 


I started to work on a little scrapbook to capture our plans, trip, the visit and everything related to Disney! I never had a scrapbook project before so I hope it will go great. 



Looking at all the videos and happy people I also want to fulfill my long time dream of making some YouTube videos. And of course I always wonder if there is anyone who would watch it and enjoy it. But I guess that if it makes me happy I will do it either way.

I hope we have wonderful experience there and that someday we will get to enjoy it with our children!


Thanks for reading!

Throwback Sunday - Blizzcon 2013

Blizzcon 2013 - November 8–9

I am afraid I do not have much to say about this event - it was definitely the most disappointing Blizzcon we have ever been to. 
The usual upside was that we got to meet and hang out with our friends. Other than that it was just uneventful. The staff seem to be bored and unexcited too. 


The "day before" tranquility.

Weather in Anaheim was of course awesome as usual. Sunny and warm in November.
That is quite a treat when you travel from Sweden. I remember standing on the pavement with Nathan, waiting for the light to change and dying of heat. It was super sunny.


Stage was beautiful.
There was of course a fair amount of good cosplay, which I always enjoy!


Gone fishing.


Lovely Svetlana from Kamui cosplay.
Amazing Svetlana from Kamui Cosplay which I admired for years and got to see up close for the first time. Her creations are so unique and beautiful! 


Buzz

 World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor was announced. That was the cool part. 
However the panels and info was very stingy. I think after Panda Expansion everyone was quite excited about sort of "back to the roots" approach.

The panel about planned Warcraft Movie was quite embarrassing - as I remember it now. All answers were either "We do not know yet" or "We know but we can't tell you".


Mandatory pic with famous Orc.

The concert at the end of convention was Blink 182 which would be exciting maybe 10 years ago. At least to me. 

Blizzcon 2013 was not the best one. I still enjoyed the event and time with my friends. Sadly this made Nathan reluctant to go next year, which is a shame since 2014 Blizzcon was the best convention I have ever been to. 

I hope you enjoyed this Throwback Sunday. I have few events I never wrote about so I will try to bring them back as "Blast from the Past" series. You are always welcome to comment. Thanks for reading!

Cleaning my mind?

Ah long time ago I actually updated this blog. I went to bed yesterday and,  as usual, thought of updating. Complicated, sophisticated and beautiful sentences came to my mind and I was so proud that my brain works so well at 1:30 am. Of course I forgot all of it the next morning. Does it happen to you as well? I find it very unfair that the inspiration strikes when you are at a place of comfort with nothing to scribble on.  To be honest I expected that to happen and yet I did not leave my cocoon to find the phone or at least a pen to transfer my thoughts onto the bedsheet.
If I could only remember what I was thinking about,  maybe I could recreate at least a part of the perfection my brain cooked in the "almost coma" state.
Oh well, maybe next time.

A lot of fantastic things happened since Minecon 2013, which was my last post. I feel obligated to inform the internet about the highlights. I am funny like that. I will include visual to help your imagination sometimes, and of course because it is faster to scroll through pictures than read. 

We are in the age of pictographic communication yet again. I am not going to lie here and say that I read it all. I was also, like probably many of you, affected by Facebook virus for some time. It is all good and still fun after you realise and fix the fact that most of the time you scroll and do not retain any real information. However I limit my time there to interactions I can not get in person or over the phone.

Need to set a reminder to proof read this at home and post it. And with my soon to be legal trial version of Photoshop, I'll prepare mentioned visual aids.

Looks like today is a day of SPRING CLEANING!



Fiffi is cleaning too...
