An Update to the Website (part 2)

We’re back!

Do you like the new color scheme? The new pics? The new menu?

Today, I’m going to use my first post back giving you a little tour.

On the home page, the only thing that has changed is aesthetics. It’s still my blog where I’ll post (hopefully) every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. But I made it darker, I gave it an older book background, and I’ve changed the side bar. No books to read, no shameless YouTube plug. Just a shameless self plug, lol.

Nothing changed under the writing menu.

I now have a theatre menu, where I put most of my jobs I’ve had in theatre (from 2012 up). This is not only to serve as a fun trip down memory lane for me and you, but this could serve to my advantage in the (potential) professional world. Under the menu, I’ve separated the jobs into production, acting, and technical. I have also moved the makeup and cosplay under there, as well as the short films I’ve made.

Nothing changed under the art menu.

The contact menu, previously known as about me, is where you can get into contact with me for any reason. Under this menu, I also have the about me section.

And that’s what had changed!

Thanks so much for giving me this week to get my metaphorical ducks in a row, and I hope you enjoy the new look!

An Update to the Website

We’re not quitting it, so don’t worry about that.

I wanted to give it a tiny facelift in the hopes it can help me out a little more with potential careers.

So, while I get adjusted to the new semester and I go through the website, posts won’t be coming.

Expect them to come back by next Wednesday (22 Jan) when I actually have something interesting or insightful to say lol.

Until then, enjoy past posts, feel free to poke around because I have more than posts (writing, art, etc.), and by all means go visit other sites.

See you soon.

School is Back in Session

Winter break is over, fellow students. It’s time to go back to school.

This is just a little post to let you know my first class is today and the time has come for me to lose sleep and stress once again.

And if you are starting school this week (or next week like Vladimir), I wish you all the luck and success in the world.

Death Week; Hell Week

Hello, beautiful. I’m late with my post today (sadly not a surprise these days). Let me give a little update.

As I’ve said before, I am a full time grad student. And if you are familiar with how college works, there’s death week and then there’s hell week. Death week is the week before finals, when you’re killing yourself studying and getting assignments/projects done. Hell week, or finals week, is when you’ve died and now are suffering the worst torture.

Today is the first day of death week.

With that said, I’ll be around this week. A Thanksgiving message on Wednesday and November’s bookclub on Friday. But next week, I’ll be gone. I will be suffering through hell week. At least this time I give notice, right?

For those who are also dealing with death week and/or hell week soon, good luck. Remember to rest and drink water and bathe. Also remember that your grades do not define you as a person. But make sure you work hard!

Daylight Saving (and a bad holiday)

Apparently it’s not Daylight Savings.

Anyway, I’m not a personal fan of these two days a year. To me it makes no sense, but what do I know.

Another anyway, hope you all had a happy Halloween (I did not, which is why I disappeared for a moment). And I hope you have a happy November. Tomorrow is Bonfire Night to my British friends, and I wish I was there to celebrate with.

If you’ve had a bad holiday, know it doesn’t last forever. Use the disappointment in a productive way and make the next holiday better. Or, recelebrate on a different day, which is what I’m thinking of doing with Halloween.

Have a great day, lovelies.

Creative Week

This week has been quite busy (if you couldn’t tell from the last post), but I’m excited to bring Creative Week to the blog next week!

Monday will be a DIY on something I made for Disneyland.

Wednesday will be a costume made for a festival.

Friday will be a choice (meaning I’m not sure what yet). I’m debating between trying watercolour or going through the process of drawing people (from when I did commissions). If you have one you’d rather see, do let me know. I’ll take it into account.

But it’s not just the main posting days that are getting creative!

Tuesday and Thursday will bring a new story for my writing tab.

Saturday will bring…a surprise (*wink*)

Sunday is a day of rest. Or just basic sketching.

Let’s get creative! Join me if you want, I’d love to see your creations.

Introducing Leroy Barkley

img_8276I’ve been out and about dealing with a DOG.

Meet Leroy Barkley. He’s now part of the family (aka, he’s Mother’s dog).

He’s a 3-year-old Jack-Chi, and is super cute. And can be super hyper. The good news, though, he likes to play with the cats and they aren’t scared of him.

Anyway, Leroy (plus school and work) has been taking some time away from me, hence why I forgot a Monday post. Oops.

Say hi!

See you Friday.

Back from Vacay, and Here’s What’s Happening

I’m back from a nice little vacation.

I didn’t have much planned today (due to being bombarded with work after a break), but here’s what you can expect in the next several posts:

Book club this Friday, my birthday, making floating candles for a Harry Potter themed classroom, and a message from Chester (who has not shared before).

There’s more stuff on the horizon, but I’d rather not say. Let’s keep it a surprise!

Have a good day, beautiful people, and I’ll see you for our monthly book club in two days!

Vacation!

It’s my vacation!

I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m gonna be away until next Wednesday (28 August). That does also mean no comic on Friday.

Here’s the thing: I’m not going anywhere.

I’m staying home.

BUT, I’m not working during that time. I’m using this week and a half to do a bunch of other stuff that will fill my days. My brother (who I haven’t seen in over 3 damn years) is coming to town, my mother’s birthday is this week and we must celebrate, Vladimir and I are starting school, and overall, I need a tech hobby break.

I will still have a video out tomorrow (check out my YouTube if you want) but next Tuesday I won’t.

Take time for yourself, even if your vacation is a staycation in order to get shit together.

See you lovelies on the 28th.

What Happened?

It’s a question I ask myself every day.

But in this context, what happened so I didn’t write in two weeks? It’s something I like to call ‘Mere Functional Depression’.

I’ve only been doing the mere stuff to get me by. Work, rehearsal/performance, food, and bathing. Anything creative or hobby-ish practically didn’t exist. Of course, I tried. There are a certain three people who are making sure I do those things, and I’ve at least tried. I worked on some cross stitch, I drew. But none of it was joyful as it usually is. I just did it to do it. Writing was put on the wayside, unfortunately. I didn’t have anything interesting to say.

I can’t say if I’m fully back since I’m still in that uncreative yet functional funk. But at least I have an update for you.

Wednesday, I’ll talk about the play I was just in, and Friday…I don’t know. Guess we’ll see.

Good to be back, though.

Hugs
