Well, hello there.
It’s almost the end of the month and I haven’t written a new post. That’s probably because every time I try to write something, I lose interest half way through and delete it. It’s pretty annoying. So I’m going to try something a little different. Gonna hitcha with some quick round-ups. Annnnnd go:
- Loved it (No surprise)
- Didn’t hit the waterpark?! (surprise & travesty) Will rectify next year by booking an extra night
- Tried to split my time between cosplay and photography to mixed success, but I did learn some important lessons
- Loved the few models I had a chance to shoot with
- Very ready to try my hand at photography again
Here’s some of my fave shots from the weekend. The ones with me in them were taken by my ever patient and very helpful boyfriend (who’s not too shabby behind the lens himself) and I still did the edits.
NaNoWriMo & My WIP
- Made it mmmmmm maybe a week into NaNo before I had an existential breakdown about my career, my talent (or lack thereof), my future (also a little shaky), and my life in general, so I decided I wasn’t going to wrench blood from a stone. But it has a happy ending as a recent development at work (an upcoming promotion and solidified career path) have quelled that fire and I am ready to get my head back into a productive/creative space.
- Hoping to start editing my WIP again this week (maybe even tonight!) and resume some kind of schedule toward completing my rough draft. Will I finish by year’s end as I originally set out to? Highly unlikely… but I guess we’ll wait and see.
Currently Obsessed With
- Castlevania (I’m almost finished with season 2 and LOVING it)
- Voltron (halfway through the last season- digging it. Shiro & Keith are faves)
- Diablo 3 on Switch
- Pokemon Lets Go Pikachu (how many Pokemon can you ride and why is each one more hilarious than the last??)
- Throne of Glass (Just started but had to take a break to read a book for book club this week- will resume this weekend)
Want to Watch
- She-Ra! (everyone is talking about it and I neeeeeed to watch it)
- FLCL Season(s) 2 (I never sat down and gave them a proper viewing and it’s giving me heart palpitations)
- The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (heard good things- very much my aesthetic)
- The Solo movie
- Incredibles 2
- MBMBaM TV Series (I’ve only seen bits and pieces and it’s an actual crime)
Want to Play
- The Spyro Reignited Trilogy (Will wait till I finish my current game backlog)
- Fallout 76 (Waiting till the servers stabilize and to see if anyone’s even still playing in a month)
- Civ VI (I want to buy it right freaking now but I still have so much to play!)
- Moonlighter (Bought it but couldn’t figure out the interface- will revisit when I need something new to play)
- I might finally host my second episode of Monster of the Week if nothing unforeseen postpones it again
- I’m day-dreaming about running a D&D campaign
- I’ve committed to going to Gen Con next year!
- I can’t wait till Christmas
I’m working six day weeks through the holidays and will continue to do so afterward until we find a replacement for my position. I’m in dire need of the OT but a little bummed by the lack of free time. Hoping it’ll pay off in the end!
And I think that’s all I got. I’ll try to have a more coherent and interesting post next month…but no promises. ;p
