Stuck in Fictional Worlds

Hi! I'm Stacie. Recent college grad and foreign language teacher. I spend too much time reading and playing video games and cosplay is one of my favorite (and most expensive) hobbies.
This is just my life as it happens :)
I'm sure you will see lots of Dragon Age, Doctor Who, Teen Wolf, Disney, Buffy, maybe some Psych, anime, and the list goes on!

I totally just figured out my make-up for my costume Thursday! I’m super excited about the outfit!! (Even if it is kinda short for October in Portland)

Now hopefully I can replicate it….

Do you know where my favorite place is?

For those who don’t know, I love Disneyland.

Now do you know where my favorite place in Portland is?

It’s not Powell’s (though I love that) or the waterfront or any restaurant or business. 

It’s the roof of my apartment building (I know that this is kinda funny considering I have a pretty big fear of heights…).

I love sitting up there during the summer in shorts and tank tops reading and drawing. I love standing up there to watch fireworks with a bunch of other people who live there. I love watching the sunset from there. I love watching lighting strikes from there. I love watching the 5-o’clock traffic. I love watching it snow. And I just love staring at the city lights. It’s amazing. There’s normally not a lot of people up there, so it is a good spot to think and sing along to my iPod. When the day comes that I have to move from here, I’m going to miss that most of all.

I mean, how amazing is that view!




This is the biggest, coolest bookstore I’ve eve been to.

If you’e eve in Portland, Oregon, GO THERE.

It’ll be well worth your while.

I am totally willing to play tour guide for anyone who wants to come visit the amazingness that is Powell’s and Portland in general!

Dear Pen,

The week that you move in, I am claiming at least one afternoon for us to spend sometime together in Portland. We can window shop and go to Powell’s :) Also, we should meet up with Hawk (who is not to be confused with me… Nita calls be Hawke) and get coffee or something… 

I remember the feeling of my summer winding down until I moved… It wasn’t pleasant… But I know you are going to have an awesome time. And me and my friends are totally going to make sure you are having fun! And we are totally going to dress in cosplay and ride the max and take note of peoples reactions.

Also, if you have any questions about the area, I’m really good with directions and knowing where stuff is. Cause it’s kinda part of my job…

Okay, I’m gonna try to go to sleep…

Yeah… I’m not sleeping anytime soon…

This is clearly a box of Voodoo Donuts from Portland! They are amazing and everyone should go there :) I think I’ll go there tomorrow…

Btw, the one in the lower left corner is one of my favorites. It’s called the “Old Dirty Bastard” :)
