Hello, everyone. It’s been a while! We’ve moved into our new place! It’s bigger than the apartment we were in and it’s a house. The backyard is perfect for our dog, Onyx. It’s untreated and he’s already showing signs of fleas so we have to get him back on flea treatment. (T＿T)
We haven’t unpacked yet because we are making changes, like painting walls. The house is very dark so we wanted to bright it up with some new colors. I can’t wait to set up the craft / otaku room so I can start creating more products for our store. I’ve gotten into Kumihimo breading and Perler beads so look forward to a lot of great things in the future.
Everyone in FTC has been thinking that maybe we should do more paneling then selling at conventions. Maybe more spread the word than selling the products. We want to boost our online sells and also do more things other than going to conventions to sell. Such as videos and books to help other cosplayers and the like to live a healthier lifestyle.
One thing that I want to add to my goals list is to become a yoga instructor. Ever since my first class, I’ve been intrigued and thinking about doing yoga a lot. I want other people to do yoga with me and so I want to become a yoga instructor. I know that first I will have to go to a lot of yoga classes and learn about yoga to gain the experience I need. Maybe I can do yoga panels at conventions. That sounds exciting!
That’s all I have for now. I will continue to update our progress in on the house and probably do a house tour once everything is done. Thank you to everyone who has stayed and supported us so far. I know we haven’t been as active as we use to but we will build back up once everything is fine.
We will be moving at the end of July to a better location. It will be closer to work and a large house thanks to a friend of ours. We can’t wait because we will be able to do so much more like exercise at home and videos for our Youtube channel. Not only that, Onyx will have a backyard to play around instead of being cramped in our small apartment. I will be recording a tour of our new place once we move and everything is settled. What’s going to be funny is Knives crawling around the house because he does that when he gets in a new place. He literally hugs walls lol. So many opportunities will open with this move and I can’t wait!
Hello Everyone. The 1st week of the challenge, Tea with Meal, is done. This week’s challenge is 10 mins jumping rope and 50 sit ups, 3 times. I got home really late last night but I still did it! I haven’t jump-roped in years. It was a difficult start but I got the rhythm. I didn’t know that it can take so much out of you. I have sweating a pool by the time I was done with the workout. Last night, I did the sit ups, the best way I could, without a yoga mat. BIG MISTAKE. That floor hurt! Next time I’ll make sure to have a yoga mat next to me.
I did without it last night because our cat loves the thing and wants to lay on it as I use it. Gets in the way ALL the time. Onyx, our dog, thought I was playing with him while I was jumping. He was part of the reason why I kept messing up in the beginning but he quickly got the picture when he got hit with it.
The move is over! We have finally moved into our new place after not knowing whether we would be homeless or not. I’m so happy that we were able to keep Onyx with us. I really didn’t want to lose him. Last night we moved into our new place and we didn’t get to sleep until 4:30am. I didn’t want to get up this morning. But oh well. Now that we have a roof over our heads, we will focus on getting things in order in our personal lives then get back to f itness to cosplay. We are dedicating a room to Fitness To Cosplay. Which means I get to hang posters and we’ll have craft items everywhere OMG. Suta will start to sew and make items. Happy Dance! Once we are done with the room, I will post up a picture. You’ll see it in the background of the videos, I know, but I’ll get you a 360 view of the room later.
Thank you guys again for being patient. This was like a last minute decision because we were tired of barely making a living on the money we were receiving because of the rent on top of bills. Now that we moved into a more affordable home, we will be able to save money for other things, like the MizuCon that we are going to in October. So excited! It’s going to be my first Con! I still don’t know who I’m going to be. Maybe you guys can help me decided.
We are still moving. We gave the landlord the applications filled so now we wait and see if we are approved. I think we are because there’s really nothing against us in our background and we are approving our credit. Packing up is a pain but we finally got a storage today, taking away from our deposit but what can you do, and we’ll be moving boxes out tomorrow.
Knives messing with Onyx. So cute 😀
Onyx, we have a a couple of ideas for him thanks to our friends. We can have someone foster him for us and we can pay for the expenses. We can take him to a Great Dane Rescue where he’ll be in great hands and not in a shelter. Or, we can have him as a service dog. We will go through everything and which one ever works, that’s what we’ll go for. I’m very happy that I have loving friends and can help us out in this time of need.
Also, with the deposit, my boss gave me a advance to make sure that we have all the money we need! It’s that amazing?! So happy. Once we move, we will be saving enough money to pay off our bills and catch up on everything. Once we catch up, we’ll start to save for Cons and other events, We’ll be able to buy cosplay outfits and so much more! I wish we had more time than a week before doing all this but hey that’s life right?
