Personal Digest Saturday: November 22 – November 28

Life news this week: 
  • Pretty eventful week! It's too bad I feel like total crap all the time. Guess it's time for the doctor again.
  • Saturday I spent editing a video, working on a new webcomic for So You Write, and talking to my mom and my friend Sarah on the phone. Also spent a bunch of time submitting short stories to magazines and finishing my newest one. Hooray, it now has an ending.
  • Sunday was very productive, but mostly the stuff I accomplished isn't very interesting. I chatted to a writer friend helping out with stuff, picked up some clutter, did some karaoke, and saw my mom briefly.
  • Monday an article about asexuality popped up in the Washington Post, and I was quoted in it, with a little plug for my book. Nice.
  • Tuesday I had to get up early ("early" being like 9 AM) for a photo shoot. They're doing an article about me for Maclean's, and they wanted their own pictures I guess. We did most of the shooting inside my apartment and a couple outside. I took some photos at my drafting table, hanging around on my couch, standing outside with a parasol, and . . . sitting inside my bookcase. Haha.
  • Wednesday was a weird Jeauxless Wednesday. One of my videos was featured on Everyday Feminism, which is cool. The latter half of the day was super depressing because of the Ferguson stuff. I talked to my mom on the phone and spent the evening mostly just reading horrible things in the news.
  • Thursday was of course Thanksgiving and my mom picked me and Jeaux up to go to Jeaux's family's house. I made pumpkin muffins to contribute and my mom made yummy croissants. I actually only had one helping of food because I'm weird.
  • And Friday I had the day off so I spent it packing and working on comics. I'm going to Disney World! My friends Meggie and Victor are going with me so they are coming over tonight so we can get an early start tomorrow, and I'll include whatever happens Friday night as part of my blog extravaganza next week.
New reviews of my book:
        • Bibliotropic: Ria posted a thorough, personal review of the book on her book review site. She reposted versions of that review on Amazon (five stars, with title "This book gave me the words I was lacking to fully express myself, and answered questions I wasn't sure how to ask.") and Goodreads (five stars).

                  • Didn't finish any books this week. ;( Too busy!  But I'm still currently reading Tourist Season by Carl Hiaasen.

                  New singing performances:

                  Here I'm singing "Now I Can Die" by Nina Gordon. (I randomly decided to change the genders discussed in the song so I could make it about two ladies. I don't know why.)

                  Webcomic Negative One Issue 0498: "Some Epic Plan."
