not much new goin on here. still workin at daiso. still sending my resume into the void hoping i can get a better job. alternating between drawing, writing, and playing videogames basically. the days pass by. adult life is less exciting than i imagined it'd be
Still steadily working on delta emerald/laura's story, but i've been in a sort of writing lull for a little bit. Lots to write, not so much motivation. I'll get there. This too shall pass
I'm super pumped for sakuracon in a week and a half but I probably won't have my cosplay done in time haha… the vest i ordered was too big and the people i bought the wig from mailed the wrong one (then realized their mistake and sent the right one a week later, but it's coming from hong kong so it probably won't get here in time…)
A couple weeks ago I went camping with some friends at a place called Cape Disappointment
, which is 100% a real place. It's actually a very pretty area despite the adverse weather. We camped in a yurt. It was cozy.
Last weekend I went to my first gem and mineral show and had a blast lookin at rocks. I need to go to gem and mineral shows more often! It was so cool!!! There were artists selling polished agates, vendors with rare minerals I'd never heard of, and all kinds of cool displays. The coolest display was a "rock dinner", which I can't even really describe, you have to see it for yourself
. There was also a silent auction selling everything from actually cool-looking samples to fairly unassuming chunks of rock probably left over from someone's last field trip. I spent $2 and got a huge bag of neat rocks. Life is good.
The mineral show was put on by the local lapidary (rock-polishing) and mineral club, and apparently membership is just $10 a year? I'm thinking of looking into becoming a member… It seemed like a rly nice, friendly group of rock-loving people, and I am all about that. They do workshops and field trips and stuff. Radical. My inner geologist has been real sad since I graduated
that's about all the news here i think!! keep on keepin on, friends
