Life news this week:
- Saturday my mom was supposed to visit but she never made it over so I spent the day just chilling. I played a video game, washed dishes, updated my Amino posts, and made lemon bars. I didn't feel well so I took a couple naps.
- Sunday was Queer Brunch. My friends Arthur and Yasmin picked me up and took me to the event. I got to have a fun conversation with some younger folks and it turned out one of them was a fan of my videos and had seen me on TV, and told me they'd been trying to figure out if I was that person. They thanked me for my help with discovering their identity. So rewarding to hear! I contributed the lemon bars and Arthur and Yasmin brought this awesome lentil thing. After the event, I just played video games and did laundry.
- Monday I had a cough. I worked on an Access database all day and then at home I worked on my website revamp.
- Tuesday I helped co-workers and updated databases. At home I worked on the website more and did a drawing of Garnet that turned out really cool. (I was participating in a screenshot redraw challenge, so it was an "assigned" drawing, but I ended up really liking what I made.)
- Wednesday I had a really bad runny nose and used up most of a box of tissues, but I was at work. I helped check some plans and made some really big maps on our plotter. Then I went to Toyko Sushi with Jeaux and then back to my place where he helped me play video games and laughed at how bad I am.
- Thursday I was feeling a little better. Built more of the Access database, and then when I got home I worked on animation for my drawing because I wanted it to be special. I talked to Victor on the phone and drew webcomics too.
- Friday was good, I posted my drawing on Amino and tried a new place down the road for lunch--ended up having one of the tastiest veggie burgers ever! Then I went home and worked on my comic. My mom came over in the latter part of the evening, having been delayed because her car got a flat tire. (She drives really rarely these days.) Glad she finally felt good enough to go out!
- Finished this week: Eyeshield 21 Volume 28 by Riichiro Inagaki & Yusuke Murata. Five-star review.
- Currently reading: A Tangle of Gold by Jaclyn Moriarty.
This week's song was "One Week" by the Barenaked Ladies.
I had to redraw a screenshot from the show and the picture I was assigned was this one (from episode 11, "Arcade Mania"):
It represents a situation where Garnet was busy playing video games and got hypnotized by the game and couldn't help fight monsters when they needed her. So this is my version:
|Woohoo I animated it!|
Webcomic Negative One Issue 0665: "I Haven't Changed."
|Me with new Steven Universe plushies!|
|My Queer Brunch button|
|The heart donuts at the office just don't stop!|
