Finally I've taken a few days to myself after pretty much being elbows deep in jewellery (not literally).
I've been so busy these past few weeks changing the name of my jewellery line, logos, retaking all the photos, and of course making more jewellery.
I've changed it from Kawaii Katz to Purple Bat Cavern, I felt Kawaii Katz limited me to only cute jewellery and that's not how I wanted to stay, that's only attracting one set of customers I wanted to attract many, and hey guess what, the name change worked. Things are on the up.
I'm feeling that 2012 is going to be my year.

Right now I'm off to relax and read my Edgar Allan Poe book - FINALLY got hold of the collections book the other night while I was out with friends. Mood: Tired but pretty darn good Music: Julien-K: Flashpoint Riot
That's not exactly something I ever thought I'd hear utter out of my mouth.
It's true though, I'm so happy with everything, so happy, so out there, like really nothing could better right now.
It feels like I'm back on even ground again, and got to the top of that bastard hill I been trying to climb for four years, all the negativity I had hanging over me, is gone and now I just want to break out, do things I've been to afraid to do, go places I've always wanted to go.
Everyone I have around me I love so much. I have THE greatest friends I could ever wish for, all the negative ones are gone out of my life, and as I said in my status earlier, friends that are no longer part of my life are just a faint whisper in my memory.
I feel I've changed for the better, gone back to the old style me, from 2003 and before, but twisted it up a bit, and holy cinnamon waffles I've actually kept my hair style for more than a week/2 weeks..that's a fucking record.
Seriously though, I could go on and on about the amazing people I have in my life, but I'll just name a few who I consider my close and great friends (if I miss you out I apologise in advance, it's 2.32am and my brain isn't exactly on this planet)
So: Ash, Kira, MantiS, Helen (Schmit), Caity, Ryan A, Sophie, Amit, Daniel, Kate, David, Cee Cee, Teresa, Debra, Danielle, Tom Hook, and Becka Roxx I freakin' love the lot of you!!
Not sure what else to really update with here...so I'll just leave this with all the loving
2.42am I need sleep.

So it's been a while since I updated, let alone logged in.
Things got so busy with my jewellery line launch (www.kawaiikatz.com) still have more to do and more designs to work on and upload to the store...it's pretty crazy.
So my night out on Dec 14th was AMAZING, best night ever, and in the perfect company of a great friend and new friends, really can't wait till they come back in March/April. Miss them loads.
New Years eve was pretty epic - I was the only alt. person there, I say alt. because I hate lables, though everyone kept calling me a Goth (it's like it's the only lable they know but okay cool whatever).
Ended up in a semi-argument with some guy about vampires, he asked me if I believed they existed, I said yes, he then proceeded to give me hell...not bothered, used to people like that, however my long time school friend wasn't impressed with him and gave him more hell than he gave me, and spoke up about it a few days later....if you saw me and her, we are so different, she's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay at the other end of the chart if that makes sense, we're like ying and yang kinda...I'm the darker side!! Everyone else at the party accepted me for how I am, and kept saying to my friend "when you first see her and the contacts and the black lipstick, hair etc, you think Oh my god, what the hell, but she's actually a really nice person, and great to talk to" - THAT WAS A FIRST, normally non alt. people look and hurl abuse so it made a change, and everyone at the party apart from one were really nice!
Anyway, plenty alcohol was drunk, including an insane shot mix of cinnamon aftershock and fireball (cinnamon whiskey), I demolished a bottle of JD, and half the fireball, then on the way home I ended up leaving the fireball, and jager on the bus there wasn't much in either bottle, so whoever had them, had a good new year thanks to me haha.
Didn't end up getting to sleep till like 8.30am...insane!
2012 got off to a bit of a crappy start, won't go into details but I will say, I will never trust people so easily anymore and my belief in best friends has totally gone.
I now belief best friends are the ones that will be the first to stab you in the back and hurt you more than anyone else, you think you can trust them, then they pretty much slap you in the face with the trust and loyalty you placed with them.
I'm totally over the crap start to the year and have moved on, things are on the up, things are better and I'm a million times better than I was emotionally and head space wise last year.
I'm starting to feel like myself again, and people aren't liking the fact I've gone back to how I used to dress, how I used to be, quite frankly I don't care, where I'll lose a friend or two over it I'll gain like 5 more.
I'm being more positive about everything this year, and I'm giving no second chances to anyone who pisses me off and breaks my trust in them...Fuck up once that it, I've always been like that, but in the last year I've been too much of a soft touch, time to be a bit more of an Ice Queen, seems to be working quite well actually...never felt this damn good!!
So what's in store for this year so far????
I'm off to Berlin on Feb 15 - 17 to see Julien-K on the 16th, then back to Berlin from March 1 - 5 to see Terminal Choice at the Out of Line Weekender, then I'm back AGAIN going to Cologne on July 20 - 25 to see BlutEngel on July 22nd....MADNESS I know, getting to see my biggest influence/inspiration Chris Pohl in the flesh, just makes me so darn happy...lets not forget to mention the liking of me flying out to see Terminal Choice in March by BlutEngel - and before you go busting my bubble saying it's not even them....you don't KNOW that, so for now leave me with my little bubble!!
It's also my birthday on Feb 22nd so I'll be home in the UK for it, planned to stay in Germany but with Terminal Choice in March, it would be too expensive, not having a party either, keeping all my money for Germany
I am getting fang implants though, hoping to have them inbetween seeing Julien K in Germany and flying back in march....fingers crossed.
On that note it's 1.13am and I'm stupidly tired, and plan on getting to sleep before 4am - though I don't see it happening....4am seems to be my sleeping time.
Pretty lame title for a entry I know!! So I went to bed at 1am, woke up again at 4am, now I'm wide awake at 5am...not meant to be up till 6.30am :/ Going to be so hyped on caffeine today - it's going to be a LONG one!
So today's going to be one amazing day, I've been looking forward to it ever since it was arranged.
I'm meeting with a friend from Italy and his two friends at 12pm, then meeting my "Monkey sistah" Lee at 1.20pm from the coach station, we're then headed to TGI Friday's for lunch, then on to Camden to hang out, then we all head to Wembley Arena to meet my fellow party animal (and member of the Orgy Wrecking Crew - you'll get to know about that little crew soon) Amit and go to box office to get our tickets for Motley/Leppard/Panther tonight.
When I say this day will be a long one, me and Lee won't actually get home till about 7/8am tomorrow morning, me and Lee are going to the airport with my friends from Italy to see them off, then we're home to shower and change, grab make up and head to Islington Academy to see 100 Monkeys tomorrow night...I feel we'll survive the day on pro plus and starbucks *insert caffeine twitching here* and lets not mention the probable hangover I may have - I'll be sat outside the venue with my shades on, huddled in my faux fur jacket with coffee in one hand, and a cigarette in the other.
I'm seriously excited about meeting my friend from Italy and meeting my Monkey Sistah.
It's going to suck so bad when my friends from Italy fly home in the morning , they'll be back for longer next time, plenty of time to party!!
Well on that note I should get myself some more coffee and make breakfast, and start getting ready - it takes me forever to get ready, might as well start now, then get on with house work before I leave.
