- Saturday I kinda did the minumum activity to not actually turn into a
bump on a log. I recorded a new ukulele song, did a book review, and
packed a bag for the early trip I'd be taking the next day. Ehh.
was awesome--it was my friend Victor's birthday party out at the Thai
Temple, and almost everyone he invited came! My bus ride was almost a
disaster but not quite--I almost missed the bus because my coffee mug
turned out to be inappropriate at the last minute and I couldn't find a
lid for the substitute! But I figured it out and ran for the stop, and
made it with a minute to spare. Once at the Temple I got to see my
friends Jeaux, Joy, Yasmin, Anita, and Eric. We ate good food and hung
out for a long time, and I got some drawing done too! And then Joy was
nice enough to drive me home so I didn't have to take three buses. I
took a nap and spent the rest of the day chilling and doing laundry.
was a long work day and was okay except a) my heels had blisters and b)
I was hungry all day for some reason. I got computer stuff done, did
grocery shopping after work, talked to my mom on the phone, played my
ukulele, and got a bunch of dishes done--plus I decided to try the absurd Snack Sushi recipe I saw on a Steven Universe
short (avocado sushi with . . . cheese puffs in it . . . yeah I don't
know either). I took some weird pictures of it that are in the photos
- Tuesday work was longer than expected because I
stayed to finish a project but someone else wasn't done with their part
so I didn't really need to stay. Then I met up with my mom and we ate
at Burger Monger for the first time. She said her burger was good. I
liked my grilled cheese! Then I showed my mom some ukulele songs. After
she left I read and slept.
- Wednesday I ordered pizza for
the office and we had a spelling bee. It sounds weird, but we are a
weird office. I didn't win it if you can believe that. Then I met Jeaux
for Panera where I literally ate a cinnamon roll for dinner. We listened
to Night Vale and didn't do much else, and after he left I also didn't do much else.
I woke up early for some reason and still didn't do anything important.
I helped at work with a presentation and went home and read a book.
Then I talked to Victor on the phone and played with some new toys that
came in the mail. :)
- Friday everyone at the office was out at a meeting except me and Jessica. It was a low-key day. Then I went home and did my webcomics and actually got some pretty important stuff done, like making a shopping list, buying a birthday gift, and making plans for my next webcomic storyboard. Also, I voted by mail.
New reviews of my book:
- Nothing I wanna talk about.
- Finished this week: The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. Two-star review.
- Currently reading: Invader Zim Volume 2 by Jhonen Vasquez.
This week's performance was "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" by Madonna.
I did some new Steven Universe drawings, one colored and one not.
|Messy pencil sketch of younger Steven|
|And the colors are off but this is my group Gem Hug. :)|
Webcomic So You Write Issue 65: "Five Times."
Webcomic Negative One Issue 0597: "In Our Hearts."
I decided to start uploading my ukulele videos to a hidden list on YouTube, so here's the latest: Linger by the Cranberries. I know this isn't very good but I'm getting better at it, really.
