- The week didn't really go like I wanted. Mostly because making and
editing the video for my 5,000 subscriber special took FOREVER and then
it had rendering problems too. I recorded it on Saturday and got it half
edited, edited the other half on Sunday, and dealt with all the
rendering problems on Monday.
- Went to my mom's on
Tuesday. We had dinner (scalloped potatoes and corn) and I made oatmeal
cookies with raisins! I made the 5,000 subscriber video public that
night before going to bed, after making sure it didn't have any errors
in the uploaded version.
- The video is really freaking
cute, guys. It's also really freaking long. But I answered a lot of cool
questions in it! 88 questions to be exact! This is it.
- An interview I did a while back with Tech Insider finally dropped.
- Wednesday was Jeaux Day again. For the first time in a while we had our meeting at my house because America's Got Talent is over so we didn't need to use his TV. We ate at Five Guys and goofed around doing nothing.
- Thursday was more new cartoons! I went to Jeaux's after work and we saw the new Steven Universe and Gravity Falls, both of which were great. Had my usual call with Victor during the wee hours.
- Also spent the latter half of the week trying to complete edits for my mentee. I'm (disappointingly) not done yet. I thought I would be by now. But all the video glitches and the extra social stuff got in the way.
- Four-star review on Goodreads from Lia.
- "What it's like to be completely asexual": Tech Insider interview with me.
- LGBTQ Fall Book Releases to Be Excited About: Casey the Canadian Lesbrarian recommends my book on this list of new fall stuff. Initially it was identified as just released, but when I notified them that it was a year old and doesn't really satisfy the post description of new books for this season, the post got incorrectly modified to state that the paperback is newly out this month. (It's not out 'til next month. But close enough!)
- Completed reading: Nothing because I'm busy.
- Currently reading: Asexuality: A Brief Introduction by Asexuality Archive.
