- Saturday was a low-key day getting some rest, catching up on some stuff, and watching some cartoons.
was my adventure to Sarasota. My dad's birthday was Monday so we had a
little early celebration. He picked me up in the morning and we went to
visit my grandma, got some coffee and donuts, went to see the orchestra,
and had dinner together. Got to meet my dad's "little brother" mentee
and chatted to him about video games, and my grandma was talking a lot.
She told me I was cute. <3
- Monday I went back to
work, had a couple slap-fights on YouTube, went grocery shopping (and
saw a book club friend at the store), and spent some of my evening
submitting short stories again. (It's been too long and I was just
sitting on them.)
- Tuesday I was gonna hang out with Mom but she told me she didn't want to, so I spent the evening working on my book edits.
- Wednesday was Jeaux Day and we did some errands and ate at Best New York Pizza. We listened to Night Vale and talked a lot. And then I read a new graphic novel that just came out: Too Cool for School, which is the first full-length Steven Universe
comic book. Super cute. I wrote a review for it and then my computer
froze right at the end so I had to write the whole thing over again.
I listened to some interviews online and really enjoyed hearing about
my favorite creators, and I chatted with my friend Victor while drawing
- Friday I posted my comic and talked to Meghan on the phone. We're planning a vacation.
- Too Cool for School by Rebecca Sugar, Ian Jones-Quartey, and Jeremy Sorese. Five-star review.
- Currently reading: Fledgling by Octavia E. Butler.
Here I'm singing "Don't Leave Home" by Dido.
