It has been about two months since I last wrote a DA journal entry.
Thanks for those who are still following me on DA though I am not very active this year. I hope I will have time to attend more conventions and cosplay meetings next year, so I can share my new experience with you guys. ^ ^
Christmas and New Year are coming, the school term is ending soon. I suppose everyone has more or less started to prepare for what they would like to do in 2012, so I would like to write a summary about my 2011 memory and what I will look forward to in 2012.
I have just realised that there isn't many conventions I have attended this year, the only three I have attended are Leipziger Buchmesse in Leipzig (Germany), Animefest in Brno (Czech Republic), and ADvik in Prague (Czech Republic). The main reason why I couldn't attend any other convention was that I was still an IB student, the pressure was over-whelming and of course I don't want to risk failing any exam. But there had been a serious problem going on between my parents which even put me and my sisters in danger, we were not able to concentrate on our schoolwork since our parents were quarrelling on daily basis. It was a disaster for me because this is one of those years in one's life that matters, I could hardly bear the pressure from IB curriculum but to the worst I had to deal with family problem at the same time. Now the problem has been partly solved, but I fell far behind all the deadlines because I had to take time off lessons to talk with the police and other people who were concerned.
I lost the confidence to do well in IB, cumulated essays and expeirment reports made me desperate, so I decided to transfor to a new school in the UK and study A-Levels instread. I want to study art in the future so I think going to a specialist art school would be more benefitial to me, and I would love to live in the UK. Luckily, my mother was willing to support me.
Over the past two months, I spent time discussing with the headmaster in my current school (ECP), and the principle of the school (ISCA) which I am transfering to. I travelled to the UK for the school interview, the teaching staff there were very kind and I appreciated the living environment there. The application turned out successful, so I look forward to move into the school at the beginning of January. I am really excited about moving to the UK, as I have mentioned in my previous journal entry, I love British culture and international community. The best thing is that I am going to study in an art school, my A-Level subjects will be mostly based on art so it's great for me!
I also look forward to meet more cosplayers in the UK, especially in London, my school is near to London so I will have the chance to travel to London sometimes. So far, I have decided to do cosplay of characters from [Durarara!!], [Uta no Prince-sama], and [Gintama/Silver Soul] for 2012, if you are planning to cosplay any character from these series, please feel free to write me a message or add me on Facebook ~> w <////
