Personal Digest Saturday: August 15 – August 21

Life news this week: 
  • My editor told me my paperback hits stores October 13, 2015. Yay!
  • Last weekend was pretty productive; I got a lot done on Saturday! Finished a comic, processed a video, and even had some time to play Dance Dance Revolution. On Sunday I went to my mom's 'cause she wasn't feeling super hot so I just spent some time with her. She seemed in decent shape when I left, so yay.
  • The work week was tiring because it was pretty busy and I had to do it on reduced hours. (I have my hours cut at the office. I think that will be over soon though.) Lots of proposal things and audit package things and draft reports and final reports to produce.
  • I did some analysis of my Pitch Wars submissions and got through some of them, but I'm kinda way behind the other mentors in that I haven't even read half of mine yet. I'll be taking the entire time allotted to make my decision about who to mentor. Eep.
  • My friend Victor got a job! I'm excited for him. He starts at the end of the month. I'm relieved 'cause he really needed that to happen.
  • I went to my mom's on Tuesday (again) and brought over a rice dish. She provided mushrooms and I cooked everything while she was napping, and we ended up having a super late dinner (like, after 11 PM). And stayed up all night being dorks and watching silly things on YouTube. :) She made me breakfast in the morning too.
  • Wednesday was Jeaux Day and we ate at Burger 21, and then did our usual America's Got Talent watching and updated ourselves on the latest Night Vale.
